Carlah Coogee
Reviewed 28 July 2015 "Amazing and realistic outcome of Blepharoplasty"
"Blepharoplasty - upper and dermabrasion. I only had it today. It's not as bad as I thought pain wise, but the swelling is worse than I thought. It only took just over an hour. I had fairly high expectations and the Dr went through a lot of pictures with me of similar eyes and mouths, got the mirror out and explained the best course of action and why.

One word. AMAZING. I saw Dr Hodgkinson on Friday and had the surgery Tuesday (before I could change my mind). He was personable, thorough and very realistic - he managed my expectations well (no I didn't come out looking like Jennifer Hawkins just like he said I wouldn't!!!) From the time I arrived at the immaculate day surgery the nurses were amazing (I wanted to take Janet home!!!). The anesthetist was fabulous - she actually knocked me out first go which not many do. The lovely Tania booked me in with no fuss and was a great comfort. I will come back here again. This place is more expensive than the other places I went, but the doctor's experience, the atmosphere of the surgery and the day hospital were worth the extra. I would recommend Dr Hodgkinson to anyone whose not sure how to get the best, realistic outcome."
Dr Darryl J. Hodgkinson responded to this review:

Ness Australia
Reviewed 26 February 2017 "Dr is a true artist"
"I decided to have full body lipo to make me feel better about my body after pharmaceutical induced weight gain, particularly abdominal that was just getting harder and harder to shift

From the moment I walked into the clinic for my initial consultation with Dr Hodgkinson to the pre procedure screening and after procedure care everything was immaculate. I was made to feel safe, cared for and above all, 6 weeks after my procedure I am down 2 dress sizes and still more to come. Dr Hodgkinson is a true artist, a sculptor with a canula. I couldn't recommend him or his clinic more highly."

Breast Implants
Breast Augmentation, Enhancement and Enlargement

In creating beautiful breasts via breast augmentation using breast implants, the chest wall and tissues of the patient must be measured and assessed to ensure that the desired size of implant can be adequately carried by the patient without implant show or potential complications. The choice of implant is important and whenever possible, the saline implant is preferred as it has the best and longest running track record of implant safety even though there are cases in which a gel implant is indicated such as in very skinny women with very bony chest walls and/or thin skin. Another advantage of the saline implant is that it can be inserted through a much smaller incision and from any incision site: under the breast (inframammary), around the nipple (periareolar), under the arm (transaxillary) and even through the belly button (transumbilical).

Of paramount importance in all these decisions is the surgeon’s expertise to meet the patient’s expectations with these options as neither any single implant nor any one incision site is right for everyone In restoring the beauty of breast shape the procedures include reduction, lifting and reconstructing. The basic principles of reducing and lifting breasts are similar in that the goal is the remove excess tissue or skin and restore and elevate a sagging breast to a more natural position most commonly due to their genetically predisposed large size, substantial weight loss or weight gain and the effects of child birth.

 
Breast Lift
About Breast Lifts / Mastopexy

Over the years, factors such as weight loss or gain, pregnancy, nursing, and the force of gravity take their toll on a woman's breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag.

Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts-at least for a time. (No surgery can permanently delay the effects of gravity.) Mastopexy can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. If your breasts are small or have lost volume, for example, after pregnancy, breast implants inserted in conjunction with mastopexy can increase both improve their volume, shape, firmness and their size.

Minimal Incision Mastopexy

Traditionally breast lifting was performed with the same anchor shaped scars as breast reduction that go around the nipple and vertically from the nipple to the inframammary fold where the scars would follow the fold for a few centimeters or inches depending on the amount of breast tissue and sag. Lifting today, however, can be performed with just a peri-areolar incision around the nipple complex. Through this incision, the tissue can be lifted and tightened, the nipple can be moved to its appropriate position and the breast can be augmented with an implant if desired. This type of minimal incision mastopexy is also commonly known as the Benneli Mastopexy or the Goes Mastopexy after the French and Brazilian surgeons respectively who are credited with the development of the procedure. To perform this type of mastopexy a surgeon must have vast experience in this specific operation as it is more technically demanding than the traditional mastopexy with anchor scarring. Dr. Hodgkinson has this expertise and has been performing this procedure for nearly 15 years.

 
Breast Reconstruction
Breast Reconstruction / Mastectomy

Mastectomy for breast cancer can leave a woman not only physically distressed but psychologically wounded as well. Dr. Hodgkinson has a special sensitivity for these patients and has over 30 years experience in reconstructing women’s breasts using a multitude of techniques. These techniques range from the use of an implant to flap surgery using the patient’s own tissues to create a new breast mound.

Breast Reconstruction Techniques

The two common types of flaps are the latissmus flap which takes tissues from the back and the tram flap which takes tissues from the stomach so that the woman receives a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty at the same time that she received a new breast created from her own tissues.

In the case that the remaining breast is drooping or too large a breast lift or reduction can be carried out on the remaining breast at the same time as the reconstruction to create an overall more attractive and symmetrical appearance.

Patients who have not undergone radiation therapy can also be candidates for tissue expansion.

The nipple areolar complex is also reconstructed as a secondary procedure for all women requiring reconstruction.

 
Breast Reduction

How Breast Reduction Can Help

Women with very large, pendulous breasts may experience a variety of medical problems caused by the excessive weight of their breasts, from back and neck pain, notching of their shoulders from their bra straps, skin irritation and difficulty participating in several forms of normal exercise. Having extremely large breasts can also exacerbate skeletal deformities such as scoliosis or breathing difficulties such as asthma. Additionally, unusually large breasts can make a woman, or teenage girl, feel extremely self-conscious. Breast reduction, technically known as reduction mammaplasty, is designed for such women.

The Reduction Mammaplasty Procedure

The procedure removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and firmer. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple and restore them to their appropriate position on the breast. The goal is to achieve the look of smaller, better-shaped breasts which are not only in proportion to the rest of the body but which are in the correct position on the chest wall.

If you're considering breast reduction, Dr. Darryl Hodgkinson can provide you specific information on how he would proceed in your particular case.

 
Brow Lift

What Is a browlift?

Deep furrows on the forehead, frown lines over the eyes, drooping eyebrows, and hood-like skin over the eyes are all conditions that can make you look older than you are – or feel. Whether age or heredity causes these conditions, a forehead lift (or brow lift) can give you a more youthful, animated and alert appearance.

A brow lift, moves eyebrows back where they belong: at or above the brow bone. It may also smooth the furrows in the lower forehead as well as reduce the drooping skin above the eyes. As a result of the surgery, the eyes appear more open, more rested and youthful.


 
Calf Implants
 
Cheek Implants

Cheek implants have been used for approximately 35 years. They provide a great enhancement to the mid third of the face.  Many patients have a very flat mid-third of the face which gives them a sad and ageing look.

Cheek implants are usually inserted through a very small incision in the mouth with stitches that dissolve. This is an outpatient surgical procedure. The implant cannot be felt. I have followed cheek implants up for 30 years; they just "sit" there and afford no basic problems for a patient.

My long-term impression is that cheek implants are by their insertion able to achieve a great deal of satisfaction for patients; they are subtle and make people look happier and younger.  Cheek implants rarely move or get infected. We sometimes combine cheek implants with chin implants to produce a better structure for the face.

I sometimes use cheek implants at the same time as a facelift and you can see examples of this procedure, greatly enhancing the appearance of the cheek.  Some doctors promote fillers and fat for this region, but these are not as predictable as the result obtained from the insertion of a proper solid silicone implant. Cheek implants are available in multiple sizes and in contrast to fat and/or injectables, can be controlled much easier with foreseeable outcomes.

 
Chin Implant

The chin is as important as the eyes and nose in overall facial esthetics. In men, a strong chin is a very important contribution to the masculine look. Today, more women want stronger, more well-defined chins and noses than ever before. A chin implant can create a more balanced profile by augmenting a weak, receding chin; reducing a deep fold under the lower lip; or widening a small chin. The bone of the chin can be moved forward or backward, made wider or narrower, shorter or longer, to provide unlimited options for refining the chin. A wide variety of implant shapes and materials are available to permit reshaping the chin to the optimal contours.

Chin surgery is normally performed under general anesthesia in our fully accredited and licensed day surgery centre.

 
Cleft Lip and Palate Treatment

Cleft lip and palate is a common congenital disorder more often found in developing countries and if not corrected in early infancy can lead to difficulties in feeding, oxygen uptake, speech and social development.

This highly specialized area of plastic and reconstructive surgery requires a life-long commitment by the surgeon. Dr. Hodgkinson, who trained at the Mayo Clinic with world world-famous Cleft and Craniofacial Surgeon Dr. Ian Jackson and Dr. Ortiz Monasterio of Mexico City has performed hundreds of these complex operations.

It is not uncommon for these operations to require fine revisions as the child/adolescent/adult cleft patient develops. These revisionary surgeries are usually to accommodate the maturation of the face and may be to the lip or nose.

Having formerly worked in India, Nepal, Mexico and Guatemala, Dr. Hodgkinson established the Peninsula Cleft Clinic in 1982 in southeastern Virgina. He went on to found the charity Operation Restore Hope in the Philippines of which he is still the Chairman today. Operation Restore Hope has performed over 1,500 operations to date on less fortunate children who without aid would have been left uncorrected. 

 
Eyelid surgery
Eyelid Surgery

We have all heard the saying “The eyes are the windows to your soul”. The signs of premature aging, such as dark circles, sagging upper and lower eyelids, fine lines and wrinkles, can make you look tired and older.

Eyelid lift (or blepharoplasty) is the recommended and most often preferred treatment for removing bags under the eyes or improving drooping eyelids. These aging eye conditions can add years to your appearance and even impair your vision.

If you have either or both drooping eyelids or bags under your eyes, Dr. Darryl Hodgkinson can enhance your appearance and give your face a more youthful appearance with an upper, lower or combined eyelid lift.

 
Facelift
How To Determine the Appropriate Facelift Procedure

Today more women and men are considering a facelift or mini face lift to help restore their face to a more youthful appearance. No longer do you have to worry about having a "plastic" or pulled look that was one of the concerns of the facelifts of old. Having performed so many facelifts, Dr Hodgkinson's facelift patients tell us that their family and friends say they look like themselves, just more youthful, refreshed and more vibrant!

Facelift surgery restores a more pleasing contour to your face and neck. A facelift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping. Ask Dr. Darryl Hodgkinson and the specialists at The Cosmetic & Restorative Surgery Clinic about the facelift procedure that is right for you, they are the leaders for face lift Sydney.

Proven Safe and Effective Liposuction for Men and Women

Dr. Hodgkinson finds that most frequently treated areas in women are the abdomen, hips, thighs, and knees. Liposuction for men includes the love handles, abdomen, and enlarged male breasts (gynecomastia) are most often treated. These are areas where body contouring with liposuction produces impressive results.

We Offer Only the Safest and Most Effiective Liposuction Procedure

Today, there are an ever increasing number of types of liposuction (suction-assisted lipectomy, ultrasonic assisted liposculpture, power assisted liposculpture and the tumescent technique) and the choice of technique or combination of techniques used by Dr. Hodgkinson the results vary based on the patient’s specific body composition. Dr. Hodgkinson cautions that all patients are different and a personal comprehensive consultation is required to determine if you are a candidate for liposuction and what type of results you can expect. There are many different tools with which liposuction can be performed. 


 
Gynecomastia


 
Liposuction

Liposuction/Liposculpture body sculpting (suction-assisted lipectomy, ultrasonic assisted liposculpture) is one of themost common cosmetic surgery

 procedures performed today. Proven safety, minimal scarring and outstanding results have made the various liposuction techniques the preferred method for removing fat from the hips, thighs, buttocks and midriff, as well as areas of the face, neck and arms. Dr. Darryl Hodgkinson as a leader in liposuction Sydney cautions his patients that liposuction is not an alternative to weight reduction, but can be very effective in removing fat from areas that do not respond to diet and exercise programs. Liposuction is commonly used to remove stubborn, diet-and exercise-resistant fat deposits and to sculpt the body into a slimmer profile. For many of Dr. Hodgkinson’s patients, resistant fat deposits may be a genetic/inherited problem.

 
Pectoral Implants

Pectoral implants are solid silicone implants which come in standard shapes and sizes or can be customized to suit a particular need. These implants are used to augment and give shape to the chest where there is a deficiency or contour irregularity of the pectoralis muscles.

Who Might Benefit from Pectoral Implant Surgery?

Dr. Hodgkinson is an expert in body implant surgery and chest wall contouring in particular. He notes that there are generally two types of patients who present for pectoral muscle enhancement and those are men who genetically may not have the propensity to develop a muscular physique “puny males” and men with chest wall deformities such as Poland’s Syndrome or Pectus Excavatum. For men with chest wall deformities, the pectoral implants are usually custom made by creating a plaster mold of the deficiency known as a moulage and then sending this off for manufacture of an implant made specifically to camouflage the defect. It takes about six weeks to manufacture the implants after which the surgery can be carried out as a day patient under a light general anaesthesia. This leads to a very high rate of satisfaction for the patient who has generally been very self-conscious of such a defect since an early age especially for those living in a beach culture where normal socializing includes exposing one’s chest.

 
Plastic Surgeon Consultation
 
Rhinoplasty

Of all plastic surgery procedures, nose enhancement, or rhinoplasty, is among the most common and satisfying for patients. Nose Surgery can be performed on any part of the nose. Nose reduction surgery to reduce its size, or nose plastic surgery to modify the size and shape of the nostrils, tip or bridge of the nose; or to alter the slope or angle of the nose. Rhinoplasty surgery sometimes in conjunction with Septoplasty (to repair the septum of the nose) may also be performed to correct an injury or birth defect, or to improve breathing. The septoplasty or reconstructive rhinoplasty are performed at the same time as the surgery to improve the aesthetics of the nose.


 
Tummy Tuck
Body Cosmetic Plastic Surgery can perhaps best be understood by using simile that it is like sculpture. Many people think of cosmetic plastic surgery to the body solely as the removal of tissue: fat through liposuction, excess skin and bulk through a tummy tuck, etc. There are, however, 2 ways of looking at the human form. To reveal the best possible shape, there are areas of excess: bits that should be removed as in liposuction and areas of deficit: bits that should be added as in body or breast implant surgery.
