Are you a patient of Ellis Choy, FRACS(Plast)?
5 out of 5 stars Body Lift
Of the Plastic Surgeons I met with (5 in total), Dr Choy had my confidence within the first minutes of meeting him. During the consultation we discussed possible options and the pros and cons of each one, and once we had narrowed down the focus, my entire body was marked up to show me (in principles) how the body lift procedure would be undertaken. We reviewed before and after photos and teased out the risks and benefits, we also discussed costs. I had no less than 3 more appointments before deciding to proceed. It was a big deal to me, and technically a radical procedure – at no point in time did he minimise or trivialise what was involved. I was what you would describe as an apprehensive patient (not fearful though), and one who really wants to understand all the details and asks a lot of questions. He was always extremely patient and generous with his time. The customer service experience was fluid with everyone supportive, friendly and accessible. The clinic was welcoming, beautifully decorated and professional. The first 2 weeks post op were difficult, a lot of pain and no sleep. I opted to take limited amount of pain relief for my own reasons. Having 2 young children did not help during this time! Week 2-4 was much better, and now it is Week 6, and I feel very good. Back to my outdoor high intensity training, able to move freely. In terms of the impact of the surgery on my life, I have experienced some highs and some flat moments to be candid but I remain confident I made the right choice. Liposuction alone could not have provided me with the same results. The scar is there, but I have started to embrace it and know it will improve with time and scar management. Actually, the scar line was kept remarkably low and neat so I am already ahead. The most important outcome is that my proportions have improved noticeably. I have already been able to wear certain types of clothes I had otherwise avoided and bought my summer bikini only recently, which felt very good. I believe I am very close to achieving the upper thighs and buttock I have always desired. My current strategy is to not focus on my body too much, and allow it the time it needs to properly heal and settle (I still have some swelling and tenderness). I always look forward to my appointment with Dr Choy with another follow up very soon to review the results and how all is progressing.

I had an initial consultation with Dr Choy and immediately, I felt comfortable. We discussed my concerns and what I would like to change; how Dr Choy could help with my concerns and achieve great results and overall help with questions and the clarification I needed to proceed. Dr Choy also showed me many before and after photos of people who had similar concerns and I was amazed at the results. He provided me with written information about the procedure so I was well aware of the procedure and possible surgery implications. This helped me to make the educated decision I was completely comfortable with. I felt confident and assured with Dr Choy’s professional abilities and personable nature. Dr Choy has an amazing team supporting him who in turn supported me throughout my entire journey. I felt every team member I dealt with was genuinely interested in my wellbeing and happy to assist me with all aspects throughout my journey. It has been over 12 months from my initial consultation to my final aftercare appointment.

Dr Ellis Choy and his team are incredibly approachable, professional, caring and genuine...I felt silly with some things I asked but needn't have! I had the most positive experience throughout the whole experience and would recommend them in a heartbeat.

What an incredible Doctor Mr Dr Ellis Choy is, I felt comptable from the min I walked in for my first consultation. It is six weeks post surgery today and I feel great! I could not fault him, I have since had friends go to Ellis and are also extreamly happy :)

The confidence that I gained from Dr Choy was what finally convinced me to go ahead with the operation. The procedure was fairly lengthy and the recovery has been quite slow. I have had a couple of minor setbacks along the way but Dr Choy and his team have been really fantastic in the post-operative care. Apart from the professionalism they have shown, they have always been very sensitive and supportive and I have always felt that they fully understood what I was going through psychologically. I couldn't be happier now that I've come through the surgery. I know that it's early days yet but even now I look so much better to myself that I feel I'm also happier and looking better to others.
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I had put on 24kgs with each of my two pregnancies and lost it all in a matter a weeks after the births. It left me with an ugly tummy with loose and wrinkled hanging skin. My 2 Year old daughter would ask me: "mummy tummy sad?!!". I was sad my tummy was sad . My daughter is now 12. 12 years with a sad tummy... I tried yoga and Pilates 2 or 3 times a week. A group gym class with weight...

Dr Choy, like myself, is a perfectionist and I’m certain that I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to perform my surgery. He is easy to talk to, kind and does everything he can to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved. The whole team at 'Zilver Linings' are amazing and work together with you to make sure your surgery experience is a positive one.
