5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Breast Aug 12years On! - Sydney, AU

Highly recommend

5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift

At 60 Years Old, I Now Feel Ageless, and Confident..... - Sydney, AU

From my point of view, Dr Darryl Hodgkinson's reputation for facial procedures appears to be focussed on a natural looking and yet much improved result.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation - 6 Weeks on - Sydney, AU

This is really fantastic; I am six weeks post breast augmentation.  Dr Hodgkinson just gave me the AOK to do what I want.  I do like jogging.  He has told me to wear a support bra but I have so much more confidence now that I have had my breast augmentation and it is just six weeks after surgery. I am very happy.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty - life changing - Sydney, AU

My Rhinoplasty surgery was life changing to say in the least. I had hated my nose for many years, and just before my 20th birthday was the best time to have my procedure. I basically went into the doctors office, explaining my trouble areas, and pretty much let Dr. Hodgkinson take it from there. I'd seen his work on his website, and was pleased with what I saw, so right after the initial...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

I Need to Get Something off my Chest...- Australia, AU

After 2 babies and months of feeling miserable and so distant from who i am i decided to have the procedure done and honestly couldn't be more happy! The healing process was fast, comfortable and my scarring after such a short time already is minimal. I have already and will continue to recommend Dr Darryl Hodgkinson to anyone, the nurses and reception team have such a warm welcoming nature....

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Dream Run! - Sydney, AU

I feel like these guys are really here to get the best result for me. When Dr Hodgkinson looks at my face I can see that he is applying all his years of knowledge and experience. He can see almost instantly what is required and where things are at. As a result he talked me out of some things and recommended others. I figured he was the expert so I would trust him ..and so far he was right.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

30 Year Old Rhinoplasty - Sydney, AU

Dr hodgkinson is an outstanding member of the medical profession and it is clearly shown in all he undertakes and his final result. I have been a client of his for the past 8 years and have forwarded through many friends. I would not recommend any other surgeon.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty & Breast Implants at Once - Australia, AU

Dr Darryl Hodgkinson is the best in the business in my opinion! i am so pleased with my results and cannot thank him enough!

5 out of 5 stars Butt Implants

61 Yr Male Sagging Butts with Skin Flap/wedge Excision X2 Required - Australia, AU

Dr Hodgkinson has the most wonderful "bedside manner"......full description/explanation provided.... the outcome was really outstanding......i just love it .....follow up care /reviews/ongoing advice was exceptional..... highly recommended and will be going back for a few other things that need attention )))

5 out of 5 stars Infini RF

Skin Tightening to Turn Back The Clock!! - Sydney, AU

Hannah Blore from Dr Hodgkinsons office performed the Infini on my face Not only was I extremely happy with the results of the treatment I found Hannah to be very supportive & extremely professional in her approach displaying a positive and caring work ethic . I was very nervous & Hannah made the whole experience very comfortable for me .
