Tina is an essential and delightful part of our team. She offers invaluable help, comfort and advice, both prior to surgery and throughout the postoperative and recovery periods.

She is in close and constant communication with Dr Choy with regard to your postoperative recovery and welfare, and is ready to assist whenever required. Tina will liaise with Dr Choy in ordering any surgical equipment which may be required, including breast implants and postoperative compression garments, to ensure that you have a comfortable and speedy recovery.
