5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Much Needed Breast Lift After Weight Loss and New Healthy Lifestyle. Richmond, AU

I’m in my 30’s and haven't had any children but up until last week I looked like I’d had at least two after rapidly growing about 5 cup sizes between the age of 18 and 20 (went from an A cup to an E in that time). I hit puberty really late and at the same time stopped being as active as I had been as a child and I just piled on the weight. Once I hit my mid 20's I had become much more healt...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Rhinoplasty, Breast Augmentation and Tummy Tuck with Lipo - Richmond, AU

I have never liked my nose or small breasts and have put on weight around my tummy. I could never justify the cost for something for myself. With a grown family the time was right. I spoke to Richard about having all 3 procedures at once, in order to reduce my time away from work. He was reticent at first but realized my reasons for doing so and agreed to proceed. The surgery took 7 hours and...

DR RICHARD BLOOM - Breast Augmentation - 450 Cc over the Muscle - Melbourne, AU

Hi everyone, I thought i would provide a review, as when I was looking to have surgery I poured so much time into looking into other peoples experiences so I thought i'd give back! On Dec 14 - I underwent a BA with Dr Richard Bloom. I'm 175cms and 70kgs - I ended up choosing a 450CC - high profile BA that was over the muscle. I'm so happy with how they look and how i felt afterwards aswell. 2...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

A/B Cup to D Cup - Australia, AU

I had my breast augmentation done in 2013 after wanting the surgery for many years but being unsure about the whole process. After seeing and hearing positive experiences from a few friends I decided to start doing some research. After hours and hours of googling and looking up sizes, reviews, surgery experiences, doctors profiles etc I decided to call ARC plastic surgery and discuss further....

I had a lot of loose skin around my belly. - Body Lift - Australia, AU

After having three children by caesarian section and my weight yo-yoing up and down over the years, I found I had a lot of loose skin around my belly. I managed to achieve a reasonable goal weight in July 2012 and, at the age of 47, decided it was time to do something for me. After an intensive search for a suitable Plastic Surgeon, I stumbled across Richard Bloom and consulted with him over...

21 Years Old - Melbourne, AU

Decided to have a breast augmentation as i wanted bigger boobs. Natural looking was the key for me so I chose anatomical implants, with the help of my surgeon Richard Bloom's expertise. I am so happy with the outcome and wish I had the courage to do this sooner! The whole process so far has been easier than I expected.

The Final Step to a 2 Year Transformation! - Melbourne, Australia

2 years ago I weighed 110kg (at 5ft11"), so overweight! I decided to change my life and kicked off a 'transformation' which included getting a personal trainer, going on a low calorie diet and at a later stage getting Liposuction for Gynecomastia (man boobs). Now at 80kg and 13% body fat, I am the fittest and healthiest I have ever been and loving life - but after losing 30kg I have excess...

My New and Improved Figure! - Hawthorn, AU

Richard Bloom is an Amazing, Skilled Surgeon. I have had 2 separate surgeries and couldn't be happier with his workmanship. Richard's wonderful staff have been caring from the first time I walked into Arc Surgery and have made my procedures so much more pleasurable. I feel honored to be one of Richard's clients.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

61yr.old Mother and Grandmother - Melbourne, AU

I have desperately wanted to have a Breast Reduction and Arm Lift for years. However, I have always let everything else, and fear, stop me. I have always found Aussie summers a nightmare, never been able to wear sleeveless clothes or bathers, as my breasts were very large. I also suffered with neck, back and shoulder pain and was always at the chiropractor / masseur, to try and get relief.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Not Just a Dream..- Melbourne, AU

For years I struggled to lose that unsightly belly fat, after 3 children and 3 caesarians it just would not budge no matter how much exercise I did and how many diets I tried. I went for an initial consultation with Dr Bloom expecting him to say you need to lose weight before I can do anything, but I was very pleasantly surprised and just a little relieved as he said my stomach muscles had...

It's Not All About Plastic - Interview with Mr Richard Bloom, Specialist Plastic Surgeon

It’s Not All About PlasticBy Jacques Ma Whilst hurrying after doctors in the Prince of Wales Hospital in Hong Kong, I was startled to see a patient with known obstructive sleep apnoea being prepped for upper gastrointestinal surgery. With no bowel obstruction, perforated ulcer or known cancers, I did not understand why this morbidly obese patient was having anything except airway-opening surgery that he obviously needed. The mystery was solved by scurrying after a doctor into theatre:...
