Why an earth did I wait so Long! Amazing Results! Amazing Dr! Amazing After Care! Amazing Staff! One...

25, No Kids, 161cm 60kg. Small B Cup to Start 325cc Moderate+ Profile Under the Muscle - Melbourne, AU

Dr. Ritz was Awesome! Very down to earth and very confident in his skill set which was nice! Dr Ritz' PA Georgie was so lovely and all communication between myself and the office was quick and easy. Dr Ritz was very professional and understanding, he gave off a kind of fatherly vibe which made me feel very comfortable and at ease. He knew exactly the right sort of implant to choose for my body and the look I wanted to achieve. The Stonnington day surgery staff were all absolutely fabulous as well! Every nurse that I dealt with and the anesthesiologist were all so lovely and easy to talk to. The nurse releasing me completely explained the ins and outs of what I should and shouldn't do on the first night and what each drug would do for me and when I should take what. Made me feel very comfortable with the level of knowledge I had on what to expect!

I met with Morris for my original consult and found him warm and understanding. I had BA and am more than happy with the result. I was fully aware of the procedure and all went to plan. All my questions were answered honestly and in language that I understood I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Morris to any one considering this procedure

The Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, otherwise referred to as a ‘Tummy Tuck’, is a process that eliminates the excess skin around the abdomen after substantial weight loss. Often teamed with a liposuction procedure if the patient is having trouble ridding themselves of that stubborn fat, though not always necessary if they have found success in their weight loss journey thus far. What does a ‘Tummy Tuck’ do? Essentially, an incision will be made during surgery just below the bikini (or jock) line. This is done...

Things I Wish I Knew Before My Fat Transfer Procedure

No matter how hard we work to improve the look of our body, from weight loss and muscle building down to spray tanning, there’s always something that we can’t seem to modify. Usually, for body contouring patients, the issue is excess fat around the tummy, thighs and under the arms. These areas are usually a problem since the skin stretches so much when we have a lot of excess fat here, and once it’s stretched out, the only way to remove it is through surgical skin excision and conto...

Wait, What’s a Thigh Lift?

Natural ageing isn’t an isolated process. At some point or another, each area of your body will begin to experience a loss in volume or skin elasticity. While some changes to your body may be tolerable, others can cause cosmetic concern and affect your quality of life. Many plastic surgery procedures involve some lifting — breast lifts, facelifts and arm lifts are some of the most popular methods today — but what about other regions of the body? Are they able to receive the s...

What Are Tuberous Breasts?

Many women take issue with the size, shape and fullness of their breasts and desire augmentation to improve their balance and overall proportion to the rest of the body. However, cosmetic rejuvenation is not the only reason why women might consider breast augmentation. Congenital deformity resulting in tuberous breasts is often remedied with implants as well.
