5 out of 5 stars Facelift
I have known David for 8 years and soon after my first consultation i knew i had found my surgeon. David has a lovely combination of professionalism and is a very caring human being. At the age of 58 (then) i intended to have a mid face lift, lower eyelids and a neck lift. I was very unhappy with the way i was beginning to look. Lacking in confidence and self-esteem. Every time i consulted...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
I had a breast reduction with David Ross and am very happy with the results. I'm 2 months post op and besides obvious scarring that needs to heal over time, the shape and lift is pretty perfect. I was happy with the after care. I would recommend him for a breast reduction.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision
Dr Ross was very honest and upfront with me about the possible outcomes of fixing my botched BA performed elsewhere. I was not given any false hope of a miracle but 10 weeks post surgery, I feel like a miracle. Dr Ross performed an amazing reconstruction and lift, minimal scars and excellent results. To be honest, he may come across a little blunt and clinical but trust me you don't want to...
5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift
Very patient, and has lots of great reviews. I fully trust him!! He does explain everything and lets me ask lots of questions. Lisa in the office is also very helpful and puts you at ease. I am confident that I have made the right decision by going with Dr Ross and by getting the neck lift done (especially after looking at my photos.... ugh.......... :-(
4 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Bedside manner is quite dry and very direct. He is to the point and tells it how it is which I liked.
Had a chin implant done with him- he told me the DAY OF my surgery that my chin was crooked and hence the implant would be too. he didnt have an imaging system, and uses poretex inplants...two signs of a bad surgeon in my opinion! he didnt listen to my requests for what shape wanted. his receptionist L*** was also one of the rudest ladies iv ever met.

I have seen Dr David Ross on two occasions, once for Rhinoplasty and Lipo and another time for Breast Augmentation. Both times I have been extremely happy with the results. He is professional and informative and carefully outlines what the risks are and the likely realistic outcome will be. After both surgeries the aftercare was excellent and he was generally concerned with my well being. ...
1 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction
I underwent gynaecomastia surgery with Dr Ross and the results have been extremely unsatisfactory with the underlying issue remaining after the surgery and a very uneven result. I found Dr Ross to be very dismissive of my concerns, arrogant and rude with poor knowledge of the issue. Showed no compassion to the terrible result and unable to fix mistakes. Any solutions he offered were...
1 out of 5 stars Chin Implant
I sought a minor chin augmentation from Dr David Ross. He affixed my implant entirely on top of my chin rather than around it (according to the hospital report written by the independent removing surgeon), and it was attached to my face 1.5cm off centre (again, according to the hospital report). This resulted in: 1. my lower face being twisted out of shape (increased projection on the left side) and; 2. one of the arms of the implant pushing out my cheek, causing the skin to tent. Dr Ross not recognise or take action in relation to all these problems (except for noting the implant as "uneven"), instead sending me home for another two weeks without further consultation. He refused to remove the implant despite my pleas. He advised I would have to pay further fees to have it removed in a couple weeks if I so desired, with such arrangements being put in place by his secretary. It is well known that the longer an implant is left it the further it sets in place and becomes harder to remove, plus the greater the chance post-removal complications developing (ie. permanently stretched skin). Despite the fact the implant was uneven and Dr Ross noting this in his file, he wrote to my GP and said the implant was "certainly sitting in position" and that I was "psychologically upset", and that in time he hoped I would become more "accepting" of the outcome which he felt had achieved my "stated goals". I consulted another surgeon given Dr Ross would not take immediate action to rectify the problems and that surgeon arranged removal of the implant the following working day. This surgeon noted all the problems I was experiencing. The implant was having such a profound effect on me, the second surgeon could not tell if it was causing the movement disorders, or whether I had suffered permanent nerve damage which was preventing the normal function of my lower face and lip . Fortunately, once the implant was removed, it was established the implant was at fault and I had not suffered permanent nerve damage. The wait to find out whether I had suffered permanent nerve damage was, however, excruciating. I hope you find my review and photos helpful.
