Going with Dr. Hodgkinson was the best decision I have made. I've seen a few doctors before and no doctor has made me feel comfortable the way the doctor and his team did. The ongoing support you receive is amazing after and during your surgery. He is beyond professional and talented. I just want to say thank you so much for helping me regain my confidence. I highly recommended everyone to go and speak to him about any issues you are having.

Best clinic I have been to. I shopped around and doctor and his team were by far the most professional and understanding.

I’m so happy having a very positive experience with my recent breast augmentation surgery. From my initial consultation and subsequent appointments prior to surgery. I was confident with the expertise and advice with the process, sizing and what to expect post surgery. It was comforting to know there was always someone to take my calls if I had any questions. With knowledgeable, friendly nursing and admin staff. I can highly recommend Dr Daryl Hodgkinson for his expertise with my procedure and everyone at the clinic for their care pre and post surgery. Thank you all so much.

The consulting rooms and operating theatre are all there on the same premises, making you feel comfortable with receiving personal attention from your initial consultations to the day of your procedure.

"I am so happy with my results and even more importantly the lack of pain and bruising"
100%Reviewed 08 Mar 2018 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Blepharoplasty
I was beginning to look old and tired. My upper lids were drooping and I had bags underneath my eyes creating dark circles. Not attractive at all. I went to see Dr. Hodgkinson about Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty. My initial consultation with Dr. Hodgkinson and the patient Coordinator Tania was informative about the procedures planned and the costs involved. Thank you, Dr. Hodgkinson and your wonderful staff for making my visits and operation such an enjoyable and non-eventful experience. I highly recommend Dr. Hodgkinson for all your Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery needs.

All my dealings with the clinic were easy and I was dealt with in a friendly and professional manner. The operation day came and it was so good not having to be admitted to a hospital as all surgery performed is done on site in the fully equipped 'international standard' operating theatre. All staff was fabulous - Janet and Deborah the nurses got me prepared for theatre. I met with the anesthetist to ensure correct medication requirements were met and then a cannula was inserted into my hand by the anesthetist. That's the last thing I remember!

I awoke comfortably an hour and a half later with Janet asking me if I'd like a cup of tea and something to eat. It was over. I had very little pain immediately after the operation.

Janet rang my partner to collect me as you are not permitted to drive after surgery. We checked into the local Savoy Hotel (recommended By Dr. Hodgkinson) for two nights following as this hotel is close to Dr. Hodgkinson’s rooms.

The first week was full of rest with the special icy green gauze eye pads placed over your eyes. Very soothing and comforting. Daily eye drops and ointment to promote healing were used for the first week. The following week I returned to the surgery to have my stitches out – I looked fabulous!

I am so happy with my results and even more importantly the lack of pain and bruising! I was looking great within two weeks and by the third week, my eyes felt as if I had never had an operation at all.

"My breathing and chronic sinusitis have been corrected and my breasts look natural and suit my body"

Treatment Received: Septoplasty, Rhinoplasty, Breast Implants
I had a combined septo/rhinoplasty as I had experienced chronic sinusitis and a deviated septum. I also had a breast augmentation to correct the shape and size of my breasts to suit my body shape. I cannot recommend this treatment enough as I am extremely happy with my results and was completely worth having the surgery.

Dr. Hodgkinson and his staff are utter professionals. My rhinoplasty turned out better than my pre-op digital photos, my breathing and chronic sinusitis have been corrected and my breasts look natural and suit my body shape. My experience with Dr. Hodgkinson and his staff during this process exceeded my expectation, every step of the way and would not hesitate to return if need be.

"The care shown by the doctor and his entire team has been superb"
100%Reviewed 05 Feb 2018 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Plastic Surgeon Consultation
I saw Dr. Hodgkinson for the first time after going through a significant weight loss journey and looking for improvements to my chest and stomach where I was still carrying excess fat and skin that just wouldn't shift. I saw Dr. Hodgkinson having researched ‘the best in the business’ but with significant trepidation in having any type of surgical procedure. From the moment I met him, I felt completely comfortable and knew I was in the best hands. His care from that very first moment, his honesty in terms of potential results and his compassion to my story was remarkable and left me with no doubt that moving forward with surgery was the right decision.

Having now gone through the procedures and recovered, all I can say is that this experience has been life-changing. I am a happier person with higher a self-esteem. For the first time ever I spent time at a beach this past holidays with no rashy on and with a sense of freedom that I had never felt before. I am still self-conscious of my body but I think that having suffered mentally for so long it is just a matter of time before this is no longer an issue for me.

The care shown by Dr. Hodgkinson and his entire team has been superb.

Excellent service, genuine care.

"I have so much more confidence now and feel fantastic every day"
100%Reviewed 29 Jan 2018 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Breast Implants
I had breast augmentation done roughly 4 months ago and went from a B cup to an E cup. I was always so self-conscious of my small breasts and would always wear padded bras or avoid types of clothing because of this. But now I don't have to! I couldn't recommend this procedure anymore, I have so much more confidence now and feel fantastic every day.

I am beyond words happy. From my first consultation to my post-op appointments, Darryl and the staff were nothing but caring, supportive and helpful. They made me feel so comfortable and Darryl even held my hand walking into the surgery. I still call the clinic to ask questions and track my recovery and all the girls there are absolutely wonderful. What's better is that my breasts look impeccable and the scars are already starting to fade. I had no complications, lingering pain or dramas after my surgery and the entire process was really easy. It was such a relief finding Dr. Hodgkinson because I've heard so many scary stories about botched boob jobs and complications, but my whole experience was perfect to a tee. I've already been recommending him to my friends! Will definitely be coming back here again in the future!

"I am so thrilled with the results and only wish I had have completed this surgery years ago"
90%Reviewed 18 Dec 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Breast Implants
After having 2 children I no longer had fullness in the upper part of my breasts. After a consultation with Dr. Hodgkinson, it was decided on an areola breast lift with implants. I am so thrilled with the results and only wish I had have completed this surgery years ago. I did not want large implants, I was seeking a natural look and after my first consult with Dr. Hodgkinson, I was confident I would receive my desired look.

I was referred to Dr. Hodgkinson by 2 friends who have had similar procedures with him. Both are extremely happy with their result. Dr. Hodgkinson has a lovely bedside manner and I felt extremely comfortable with him. All the staff at the Double Bay Day Surgery were lovely through the entire process - the receptionists, nurses and anesthetist all exceeding my expectations and gave exceptional service. I recommend anyone who is seeking cosmetic surgery to have a consultation with Dr. Darryl Hodgkinson. You will not be disappointed.

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.
