So my experience at the clinic, it exceeded all my expectations

5 50 Tummy Tuck, Arm Lift

I don't normally write reviews but I have to do this one. I started doing some research on plastic surgery and I came across the Sydney Gastric Banding clinic I visited Dr Oliver Florica because after losing 22k I had excess skin that was making me feel very ugly. Dr Florica explained the procedure answered all the question I had. I had the procedure on the 12th March 2019 I could not be happier. The procedure wasn't as expensive as I have heard from other people, it was worth every penny I spent on it.

Dr Florica was so professional a real gentleman and he shows real personal interest, something you don't see often enough. The girls at the front desk also very professional and attentive always willing to help you. So my experience at the clinic, it exceeded all my expectations. Extremely happy client. I had extended tummy tuck and arm lift procedure.

So far the healing process has been going well and I hope I will continue to make good progress

5 50 Gastric Plication

I had gastric band surgery three weeks ago. I chose this clinic because of the recommendations and the price. Admittedly, it was expensive, but the quality was worth what I paid.

My first impressions of the clinic were fine. They made contact with me after the surgery and I had my first follow-up on Tuesday. So far the healing process has been going well and I hope I will continue to make good progress. I’m already losing weight and this will ultimately change my life for the better. I had the surgery, but it’s up to me to follow the doctor’s instructions if I’m to reap the full benefits.

An excellent surgeon who cares for his patients

5 50

Oliver performed the gastric sleeve surgery on me in October 2016 due to morbid obesity. My liver has returned to normal size and function improves. Oliver certainly is an excellent surgeon who cares for his patients and the same can be said for Dr. Keeley who is genuine and caring. I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to have Oliver's services.

I met Oliver many years ago when he operated removing my wife's diseased gallbladder then he went out of his way treating me for acute pancreatitis. The practice is friendly, helpful and very informative. I would choose Oliver Florica over other surgeons.

Both Dr. Keeley and Dr. Florica are warm and genuine

5 50 Bariatric Surgery Consultation

Consultation for bariatric surgery.

I had booked in for a consultation with Dr. Keeley simply to gain further understanding of my options in procedures with Dr. Florica. When I went into my consultation, Dr. Keeley was warm and friendly, and also very genuine and honest. We sat and spoke candidly rather than simply her asking questions and me responding. When she realised I'd driven nearly five hours to meet with her, she insisted that I see Dr. Florica the same day so that I wasn't inconvenienced and having to come back. Dr. Florica made space in his schedule and spent quite some time speaking with me. Both Dr. Keeley and Dr. Florica are warm and genuine, and have their potential patients best interests at heart.

Gastric Plication/Banded Plication

Gastric Plication/Banded Plication - Sydney Gastric Banding - WahroongaGastric Plication/Banded Plication - Sydney Gastric Banding - Wahroonga
The gastric plication is a novel procedure performed in lower BMIs that otherwise do not qualify for other forms of bariatric surgery. Most recently I have been performed a modified technique where  a gastric balloon -like structure is created from fat within the top of the reduced stomach; this becomes smaller when losing weight and enlarges with gaining weight, increasing or reducing the stomach capacity depending on your weight progress.

In other words, theoretically you can eat more if you lose weight and less when you gain, helping to keep the weight down.

It can be performed alone or with banding when higher BMIs are treated. 

In almost 10 years I have performed over 1,200 such procedures.

Arm Lift

Having an arm lift is often a challenging decision. An arm lift with Dr Florica will pursue the most cosmetic outcome so you don't feel the need to cover up any longer - using micro-suturing technique and ensuring scare are placed where they are virtually invisible in normal posture.

Biography:

I am an Australian Surgeon performing laparoscopic and robotic procedures in general and bariatric surgery since the early 90’s. In 2002 I became fellow of the Australian College of Surgeons and subsequently member of the Australian Obesity Surgery Society. My training however has never stopped and to present I am staying abreast of most modern surgical techniques. In my career, I participated or performed in excess of 20,000 surgical procedures. 

In the last five years, I introduced in my practice a reversible laparoscopic gastric sleeve by plication technique which I believe complements the gastric band, simplistically offering the combination of a smaller stomach to the alimentary flow restriction provided by the band. My experience with this technique is now very good with over 1500 procedures and follow up into the seventh year. 

Due to the fact that the gastric plication by itself is potentially reversible, there is no introduction of foreign body, there is no cutting, stapling or re-routing of bowels I am offering it as a sole operation to patients with lower BMI, who otherwise would not qualify for weight loss surgery. The early results speak for themselves - immediate weight loss and  immediate resolution of per-existing heartburn and cessation of anti-acid medication in patients who suffered from chronic acid reflux. Typically, the patients continue to eat reasonable size meals and experience earlier and longer lasting satiety.
