5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
Im 44 yrs old and I had a Mummy Makeover which I have been considering for the past 10 yrs. My kids are now aged between 14-24 and I thought it was time to do something for me. After having my 4 children and breast feeding them all I was left with a lot of excess skin on my stomach which I hated because it hung over my hips leaving me very restricted when it came to clothes shopping. My...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
It has been about 10 days since my breast augmentation with Dr. Choy and I could not be happier. Since the age of 16, I knew I wanted to get a breast augmentation and potentially an areola reduction. I felt my breast were too cony and had a slight droop to them and my areola were disproportionately too large for my size. I’m actually Canadian and have been going to see doctors in Canada and s...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
I cannot recommend Dr Choy enough. Excellent patient care, felt at ease the minute I met him and his wonderful team. I am so happy with my breast reduction surgery. After surgery care was amazing and I feel on top of the world.
5 out of 5 stars Mentor Breast Implants
I just want to start by saying I have had the best experience with Dr Choy and highly recommend him if you are considering a breast augmentation. I live out of state and my first consultation was about 1.5 hours and very in depth via skype. He made me feel at ease and knowing he was fully qualified made the choice easy. His fee is very reasonable in comparison to the other 4 quotes I got as well - his was also the lowest ( I won't say cheapest because his service is definitely not cheap quality), however this isn't why I chose to go with him. That was down to his personalised approach, detail orientation, reviews and qualifications/experience - he also wanted to understand ME and EXACTLY what I wanted and spent alot of time on this to make sure we were both on the same page about the look I wanted. The whole team at Zilver Linings ( his practice) were so lovely. They were very discrete and more than happy to accommodate me coming from interstate. I had one skype call and booked in the surgery. I had a face to face appointment the day before the operation to go through all the paperwork and test/choose implants. Dr Choy had already suggested a Mentor implant range during our skype call based on what I had indicated I wanted and so I had time to research those implants before the face to face decision. Surgery day was uneventful in a good way. The staff were great. The surgery went perfectly and I was barely in pain! Considering I had just had major surgery I was a little stiff and sore but nothing more than a good work out type of pain. I also had barely any swelling and was up in my hotel room doing my uni assignment that afternoon eating soup. Dr Choy called me the morning after to check in and give me some advice on post op management and I will see him after 1 week for a check up in person. I will be overseas soon and he will continue to manage my recovery via email, phone and skype as well :) It is now 3 days post op while I am writing this and I am still feeling pretty good considering the surgery. My chest is a little bit tight, but not as tight as I thought it would be. I still have limited swelling and I am really happy with the size of my new boobs ( even though I can't see the final results yet I feel happy at this stage). Overall I have nothing negative to say and hope others consider him for surgery as he looks after his patients well! I will be posting my journey so you can follow my progress there / see photos. Thank you Dr Choy :)
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
I had known that I wanted to get a breast augmentation since the age of 15, when I realised that my breasts hadn’t developed the way I thought they were supposed to. This was my biggest insecurity, and I was so ashamed of the way I looked that I found it hard to look at myself naked. I had my first consultation with a surgeon at 18, and was told that I had a condition called tuberous breasts. ...
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I just wasn’t born with a body that “bounced” back after having my 2 boys. I gained a lot of weight during both pregnancies and after breastfeeding, I ended up with deflated saggy boobs and a very saggy wrinkly tummy scarred with stretch marks. At just 34 years of age, I still wanted to be able to go to the beach in a bikini without being embarrassed and self-conscious of my grandma saggy...

Recently I have had the pleasure of breast asymmetry corrective surgery with Dr Ellis Choy. After suffering from many years of embarrassment, I decided to have the procedure with Dr Choy with personal recommendations from few of my close friends who also had breast enhancement surgery done by Dr Choy. Honestly, I could not be happier or more confident with the surgical outcome and I can't...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision
Late last year I discovered a lump under my R) armpit, thinking it had absolutely nothing to do with the breast implants I had inserted 13 years prior I went to my GP for investigations. Following various tests and scans it was revealed on MRI that I did actually have a ruptured R) breast implant and the lump under my arm was silicone that had migrated. Initially I was shocked and in disbelief...
