5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Breast Aug 12years On! - Sydney, AU

I had breast Augmentation with Dr Hodgkinson 12 years ago and am still very happy with my results. Dr Hodgkinson was recommended to me by a family member and after having my initial consultation I felt very at ease and confident in Dr Hodgkinsons work. I particularly liked the fact he uses different types of implants I choose to go with the saline Implants as I felt they where the safest...

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

After my previous brow lift 14 years ago with Dr Darryl Hodgkinson, I still looked so good I had to select the same surgeon. This time my jowls and neck needed some serious work! The surgery was done 6 weeks ago, also had fat transfer from tummy to face and the result is natural looking and yet a dramatic improvement. I could be any age now. I will save a small fortune in fillers and botox,...

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...

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

After two years of research and saving, I can’t believe my facelift is now 4 weeks behind me and I have to say I’ve had a dream run! I’ve had a facelift/necklift to get rid of a dreadful saggy neck and cheek implants where I’d lost volume. My drooping ‘witch’s chin’ has been hitched up to where it should be. The cheek and chin were at the recommendation of my surgeon – and...

Rhinoplasty & Breast Implants at Once - Australia, AU

I was referred to Dr Darryl Hodgkinson by mother who had her breasts done by him about 12-14 years ago. When i first arrived i was greeted by the lovely receptionist and given a chilled glass of water. At first, my main concerns were my breasts, but i also wanted to discuss my nose and see what was possible and how much it would cost for each. When i went in the room to see Dr Hodgkinson I...
