Welcome to our patient stories page. We understand that hearing stories from current and past patients will help you to make your decision regarding your surgery and surgeon. Unfortunately, we are limited by the Medical Board of Australia which prevents us from publishing testimonials, recommendations or statements regarding our services. There are, however, platforms such as RealSelf and Cosmetic Journey, which have been designed to give you a medium to read patient experiences.

Rediscover Your Sense of Self

They all knew her as the vibrant one; joyful, cheerful and full of positive energy. And that’s what she tried to emit – that’s who they saw her to be, and so she strived to give them that.

She made it a habit to avoid fancy events and stayed well away from physical activities that caused her to feel as if her body was on display. In some senses, she felt she’d withdrawn herself from the social scene, losing connections and damaging close relationships because of it.

At times, she’d caught herself dreaming of the perfect figure – what it would look like, feel like and how it would transform the way she was living. How did all those women introduce several children into the world, and still look the way they did? Why didn’t she?

But as she began to spiral into thoughts she knew were unreasonable, she caught herself. All the self-destructive thinking had to come to a halt. It was time to start a new journey and rediscover her own sense of self once more.
