5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

One Week Post Op and I Am Just So HAPPY!

Just over one week post op after having Open Septorhinoplasty performed by Dr Sophie Ricketts and couldn't be happier with how things are coming along. Dr Ricketts and her team at ARC have been meticulous in their level of both efficiency and customer care. From my initial consult Sophie was very honest about what we could hope to achieve. Having done lots of research I knew I'd never have a...

Open Septorhinoplasty

I'm a 26 year old female and I had always been self-conscious about the large hump in the middle of my nose which made my side on view less than appealing. I had wanted a rhinoplasty for many years and prior had a consultation with a Ear Nose and Throat specialist for both breathing issues due to a deviated septum and weak nasal walls that collapse when heavily breathing and the aesthetics of...

62 Yr Old Grandmother - Richmond, AU

Excellent! Sophie was easy to relate to and very much focused on an amazing end result. I am very pleased with the outcome!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

I had such a fantastic experience with Sophie!

I decided to undergo breast augmentation and I found it hard to find a surgeon I could trust, until I meet Sophie. I was previously booked in with another surgeon to do the procedure but I had my doubts after speaking with them and wondered if there was anyone else. I found Sophie on the RealSelf site and decided to go ahead and book an appointment. After the consultation, I felt very...

If you're young and nervous, look no further

I had always been conscious of my nose and I finally decided to get rhinoplasty. I had my consultation on the 19th of October and felt so confident in Dr. Ricketts that I didn't even bother shopping around. I then had surgery on December 15th, 2016. I'd only just turned 19 so budget was the biggest potential setback and I was a little nervous if I was too young. I did do some research on the...

30, No Kids, Circumferential Abdominoplasty & Thigh Lift After 110lb Weight Loss - Melbourne, AU

After maintaining 50kg weight loss through diet and exercise since 2013-14 decided I couldn't get the body I wanted with just that alone due to excess skin from being overweight my whole life. My skin is not nearly as bad as what I have seen on this site so I do feel lucky that because I've got quite a solid build a lot of my weight is carried in bones and muscle which I would never haves...

Very Happy

Dr Sophie Ricketts is an excellent surgeon, the end result was very pleasing and she listened to my requirements. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone contemplating surgery. Dr Rickets has an excellent manner and pleasant personality.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

I had an amazing exprerience - Melbourne, AU

When I first went to Dr Sophie Ricketts. I expressed how uncomfortable and unhappy I was with my tummy after having 3 children. From my very first visit, she was very caring and professional. She made me feel comfortable. I felt very confident in my decision to choose her as my surgeon. I highly recommend her to anyone.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Large Nose with a Big Hump - Richmond, AU

Sophie is extremely good at what she does, she covered the medical and cosmetic issues relating to my nose, she knew exactly what she would do to correct it and was even identifying appearance issues I didn’t like before I had even mentioned them. Like I said, she's very good. Everyone at Arc Plastic Surgery is extremely pleasant and very helpful. Sophie Ricketts fees were $7,500 with a Medicare rebate; anesthesia fees were $2,100 with a rebate also. The surgery goes for approx. 2.5 - 3 hours and anesthetist is charged by the hour. If you don’t have health insurance, you’ll have to pay for hospital costs as well and they can be very expensive. The nurses caring for me were wonderful, very professional and on the ball. They did everything they could to keep me relaxed and happy, it was outstanding at Linley Clinic in Canterbury. Sophie did an amazing job, I had no idea that it could ever be this perfect, I'm so so so in love with my new nose, I'm already starting to be able to breathe out of it. It's straight, matches my face perfectly and is ten times better than anything I had ever imagined. If you are seriously considering this procedure you should book a consult with Dr Sophie Ricketts, she can do rhinoplasty's better than anyone (in my biased opinion).

Wish I Had Met Dr. Ricketts Earlier! - Melbourne, AU

At 23 years of age I had been considering a rhinoplasty procedure for quite some time due to injuries incurred when I was younger. Having worked in the aesthetics industry for several years myself I began to ask for recommendations from peers and Dr. Sophie Ricketts name was mentioned by several people. I attended quite a few consultations however once I met Sophie I immediately felt at ease...

Personal Statement

My primary interest is in surgery of the face; including rhinoplasty, eyelid, face and necklift. I am also happy that some women find seeing a female plastic surgeon makes them more comfortable. Surgery on your breasts and body is daunting, and I hope I can make it that little bit easier for you.
