He was extremely skilled, professional and completely upfront

5 50 Breast Implants

I had originally undergone breast augmentation surgery back in 2011 with Dr Hodgkinson after a girlfriend referred me to him since I was obsessing over her amazing new breasts. I was in my mid-20s and my breasts weren’t as perky as I would have liked them to be so I met with Dr Hodgkinson and his team. After doing my research prior to making my initial booking and speaking with a few other clinics I believed that Dr Hodgkinson was the right surgeon for me. He was extremely skilled, professional and completely upfront and honest with what would be best suited to my body. I loved my new breasts immediately and for the next 8 years, even after my first child, they were still as perfect as what they were back in 2011. It was after my second child that I would look in the mirror and not like what I saw. Within a couple of months post-baby, I met with Dr Hodgkinson again to discuss what my options were. My first thought was that it was wonderful to see all the staff that had looked after me so many years ago still working alongside Dr Hodgkinson and then the discussion which followed. The doctor suggested a breast reduction, lift and new implants which I was absolutely stoked and excited to go with. My breasts looked much older than what I believed they should look like for women in her mid-30s.

The surgery went extremely well, I felt fine, my breasts and nipples sat much higher, my breasts were round and full again and I immediately felt as if my breasts looked even better than they did 8 years ago. The recovery process was great for me, I was able to pick up my baby within a few days and I felt absolutely fine within the week. I was terrified about the recovery process, I had read so many negative reviews about breast lifts taking weeks to recover and although everyone's body responds differently, I was out and about with my baby in less than 10 days.

There have been many breast surgeons whom have come into the industry since my initial breast implant surgery however I felt as if Dr Hodgkinson was and is still the best suited to me. Over the years I have referred several family members and friends who have all loved their results and I will continue to do so.

The follow-up appointments are scheduled in advance and it’s always been so easy and wonderful to deal with not only Dr Hodgkinson but his wonderful Team.

The outcome is even better than I had hoped for

5 50 Rhinoplasty • Paid: $17000

Dr Hodgkinson did a wonderful job on my rhinoplasty, plus improvements to my cleft lip. The outcome is even better than I had hoped for! This is a particular area that he cares immensely about, and it really shows. The initial consultation and discussions put me completely at ease. The level of care and attention on the day of the operation was outstanding, as was considered aftercare. I do not hesitate to recommend Dr Hodgkinson and his amazing team, and thank them very much for improving my appearance, comfort and confidence.

I am still very happy with how the surgery went

5 50 Rhinoplasty

I had a Septoplasty/Rhinoplasty procedure done about 8 weeks ago now. So far, I am extremely pleased with the results. Darryl has improved my breathing as well as straightening my profile and lift the tip of my nose. My nose has a very natural look (which I love!) and I still look like me, which was one of my concerns when deciding to do this surgery.

Although the nose is still swollen and I will not see the final results for a couple of months, I am still very happy with how the surgery went. Darryl and his team took such good care of me pre, during and post-surgery. Unlike other reviews, I had no issues contacting them when I had questions, and his team were always very helpful. They made me feel very comfortable and I am extremely happy I chose Darryl and the team.

5 50 Facelift

Dr Hodgkinson is a master at his craft. The whole team who support him are fabulous, professional, approachable and experienced!

More confidence, more positive attitude to life, it is a holistic experience not just a physical. Thank you.

I have achieved a significant lift without having vertical scars down my breasts

5 50 Breast Implants

I had a Benelli lift (mastopexy) and breast augmentation performed by Dr Hodgkinson two months ago and could not be more pleased with the results. After breastfeeding my two beautiful young children I was left with small, asymmetric and sagging breasts. After my initial consultation with Dr Hodgkinson, I felt rather confident in his ability to improve the appearance of my breasts however, I could not have anticipated how good they would look after surgery. And all with minimal scarring! I had seen previous surgeons, all of whom recommended a lollipop lift to correct my breasts' ptosis. Dr Hodgkinson was the only surgeon to recommend a Benelli lift and I am so glad I went ahead with him as I have achieved a significant lift without having vertical scars down my breasts. His work speaks volumes of his talent and the experience he has acquired over the years. His staff were also so accommodating and made me feel at ease during the whole process.

Would highly recommend Dr Hodgkinson!

Treated by: Dr Darryl J. Hodgkinson

Thank you Danielle! We are delighted that you are pleased with your result. The Benelli Mastopexy is a wonderful procedure for women like you who are candidates but is not often widely performed due to the complexity of the operation. We sincerely appreciate your taking the time to share in such detail your experiences with us and hope that this might help other women who have the joy of children and breastfeeding but feel that they need a "lift". Thank you again for your kind words.

I'm happy with the results and feel confident with my breasts again

4.5 50 Fat Transfer, Breast Lift • Paid: $12000

I wanted a breast lift and possible implants, after meeting with Dr Hodgkinson I decided to have a lift and Fat transfer. He was very professional throughout and made me feel important. I'd been to others for quotes who made me feel like "next please". My privacy was respected throughout and he was priced similarly to others and wasn't the most expensive.

I would 100% recommend Dr Hodgkinson and his team. I couldn't fault them. Would I do it again, yes absolutely. I'd just weigh up having implants instead as I prefer the fuller look, so keep in mind when making your choice. But I'm happy with the results and feel confident with my breasts again.

Highly recommended

5 50 Tummy Tuck, Breast Implants

The amazing team - their warm caring kind and gentle manner make any surgery that you may be thinking of doing feels like nothing at all!

After having a tummy tuck removal and replace of breast implants plus inner thigh lipo I was expecting a tough recovery (plus I have 4 children under 7 at home). Let me say Dr Hodgkinson and his team we angels - my pre-surgery post surgery and follow-ups were a walk in the park. Dr Hodgkinson is insanely talented and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

Treated by: Dr Darryl J. Hodgkinson

Thank you Natalie for taking time out of your busy life to share these kind words and for being such a lovely patient. We are delighted that you are pleased and that we were able to make this experience (and you did have the whole experience) as comfortable and pleasant as possible for you.

He's patient and really made me feel as though my goals were his top priority

4.5 50 Rhinoplasty

I'm 6 weeks post rhinoplasty and my experience with Dr Hodgkinson and his clinic has been stellar.

After looking at various surgeons online, I made a shortlist of about 8. After calling each, Dr Hodgkinson was the only one I chose to book a consultation with. Credit is largely due to Rebecca, who took the time to answer all my questions candidly and patiently. She gave me complete confidence and never made me feel pressured, or as though she was giving me stock responses.

Dr Hodgkinson has a wonderful manner. He's patient and really made me feel as though my goals were his top priority. His whole team; Deborah, Tania and Rebecca, are fantastic, and really take the time to work with you to help you achieve your goals. I have no hesitation recommending Dr Hodgkinson and his clinic.

6 weeks out, I'm glad I chose Dr Hodgkinson for my surgeon.

Thank you Tara for your review. Dr Hodgkinson and all the staff are truly grateful for your kind words.

I had my surgery and it changed my life

5 50 Mastectomy

Dr Hodgkinson changed my life last year in the most amazing way. I went to three different surgeons before seeing Dr Hodgkinson. I had a very difficult case that involved two procedures a breast augmentation as well as mastopexy. Dr Hodgkinson said he would do everything he could but due to the severity of the tuberous breast, he couldn’t guarantee a 100% result.

I had my surgery on the 29th of November 2017 and I was absolutely terrified but all the staff at the Cosmetic and Restorative Surgery Clinic made me feel safe and ready to have my operation. As I walked into the operating theatre, I was still so scared and honestly, I was crying. Once I got into the room Dr Hodgkinson was already in there waiting for me and as I got on the bed he held my hand and said that everything will be fine and I felt better.

I had my surgery and it changed my life. For about 8 years all I could think about was having this surgery to make me feel more confident in myself and for the last year every day I think about how happy I am that I had my surgery.

From my initial consultation to my 12-month post op visit I had two weeks ago Dr Hodgkinson and all the staff were absolutely beautiful answering any questions I had whether it was on the day or on the phone 2 months later. To all the staff at the Cosmetic and Restorative Surgery Clinic and to Dr Darryl Hodgkinson, words can’t describe how grateful I am to you all.

You changed my life and have made me so happy, so thank you.

My overall experience was 10 out of 10.

My post op treatment has been fantastic and I felt very well informed throughout the experience

5 50 Breast Implants

I am so happy with my breast augmentation with Dr Hodgkinson. I had the procedure two months ago and LOVE my results. I was feeling really down about my breasts after weightless and wanted to restore some fullness and give them a better shape. I was very specific about the look I wanted and Dr Hodgkinson gave me exactly that! I love my new look.

The clinic was great! The team are so lovely. I had Trish in recovery and she was very caring. My post op treatment has been fantastic and I felt very well informed throughout the experience.

5 50 Rhinoplasty

I chose Dr Hodgkinson after doing research on plastic surgeons. I am very pleased with the work he has done. Everyone involved has treated me amazingly and they are all very professional. I couldn't be happier.

I had Septorhinoplasty to address a big problem I had with my septum and fix the shape of my nose. I knew I could trust Dr Hodgkinson and he delivered what I wanted.

The clinic’s décor is luxurious. I was treated very well from the moment I entered the clinic. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. Dr Hodgkinson is a master in his field as well as being a very warm and caring man.

Breast Implants

Breast Implants - Dr Darryl J Hodgkinson
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 - Dr Darryl J Hodgkinson

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 Treatment - Dr Darryl J Hodgkinson

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

Facelift - Dr Darryl J Hodgkinson
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 - Dr Darryl J Hodgkinson

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 - Dr Darryl J Hodgkinson

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.

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.
