"The doctor was really considerate and he followed up with me after I had the treatment"
5 50Reviewed 15 Mar 2018 Verified user.
Treatment Received: Spider Veins Treatment
I chose Dr. Flynn for his good prices and proximity to me. He did the spider veins treatment and I’m happy with the results. It was worth the money and I paid no additional costs.

Everything - the facilities, the staff etc. - was all good. For me, the best part of the experience was the doctor himself. Dr. Flynn was really considerate and he followed up with me after I had the treatment. They definitely get a 5/5 for excellence.

"Honest and reassuring around breast implant surgery"
5 50Reviewed 08 Aug 2015 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Breast Implants
Treatment was excellent, Dr Chinsee was very thorough and had plenty of enlightening information I hadn't thought to ask. I felt very comfortable and was pleasantly surprised by the high standard of staff.

At first I was quiet nervous as I am extremely shy and was stressing out about taking my shirt off in front of a complete stranger however from the moment I walked in the door I was greeted with a friendly smile and then seen promptly by Dr Chinsee. He was very professionally and I found the way in which explained things was honest and reassuring. I would recommend Dr Ian Chinsee and the Cosmedic and Skin clinic to everyone.

Arm Lift

An Arm Lift, also known as Brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove loose skin and excess fat deposits in the upper arm. With age or weight loss, upper arm skin can become loose and flabby. In some cases your surgeon may suggest that Liposuction be used alone or in conjunction with an arm lift to remove excess fat in the upper arms. Brachioplasty surgery usually takes two to three hours to perform. The procedure is done under "twilight" sedation (a combination of local anaesthetic and intravenous sedation) or general anaesthesia. In order to remove the unwanted skin, an incision is made from near the elbow into the armpit. The skin and fat are gently elevated off the underlying muscles of the arm and the excess skin and fat are removed. Then the skin is re-draped over the underlying muscles. The incisions are carefully closed to minimise scarring. A sterile dressing is applied to the incisions and a compression garment is placed over your arms. This compression garment or binder helps support your arms during healing, decreases post-operative swelling and helps decrease any bruising that may occur. You will notice an improvement in your arm contour immediately. However, your shape will continue to improve in the following weeks as the mild swelling subsides. Initial healing usually occurs in 10-14 days. You should be up and walking the day following surgery, although your arms will be sore for several days. You should able to resume your normal daily activities within several days following surgery, and you should be able to resume all of your physical activities within three weeks of surgery. Scarring is inevitable with arm lift surgery. However, your scars will continue to fade over time and will become less and less noticeable.

Breast Lift

A breast lift or mastopexy can improve the shape and position of the breasts and areola/nipple complex. It can improve breasts that sag but are not large. Sagging can occur with normal development or as part of aging. Pregnancy, breastfeeding and weight loss are also major causes of breast ptosis (sagging).

Breast lift surgery is designed to return the breast to a more youthful appearance by moving the position, shape and size of the nipple/areola complex, remove excess skin and reshape the breast tissue. Although mastopexy does not alter the amount of breast tissue a woman has, it can change the shape dramatically.

Breasts normally have some degree of asymmetry between them and this may be addressed at the time of operation if the degree is particularly apparent. On occasions a breast reduction may need to be performed if there is a concern as to size of the breast. This procedure will alter the size of the breast by removing varying degrees of breast tissue as well as improving shape and lifting the nipple/areola complex. Some times a breast implant is required to increase volume in the breast.

There are three types of breast lift/reduction performed depending on the amount of lift needed. The Bennelli (scar around areola only), LeJour (scar around areola and down to underneath the breast) and traditional Wise pattern (anchor shaped scar around areola, down to underneath the breast and continuing under breast fold).

Breast lift surgery is performed in a private hospital as a day surgery patient. A supportive garment is worn for up to six weeks post operatively.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction or Reduction Mammaplasty is a major surgical procedure to reduce the breast size in cases of large and uncomfortable breast often with degrees of medical complications such as neck pain, back pain and skin infections under the breast fold.

Brow Lift

We do not always look as good and as young as we feel. Sagging of the brow and eyebrow can contribute to a tired, sad and aging look. A Brow lift procedure can provide the elevation and repositioning of soft tissue around the brow. This provides a more pleasing and more youthful aesthetic appearance. There are a number of different procedures which may be used and all of the options need to be discussed. Depending on the individual requirements the brow can be elevated by procedures involving a hairline incision or an “in-hair incision over the temple (Temporal Brow lift). A direct brow lift is specifically designed to reposition only the eyebrow. The scar is placed immediately above the eyebrow. In both of these procedures the skin and underlying tissue are both tightened and repositioned. The new thread lift techniques are also useful in brow elevation. Brow lifts are not designed to remove all forehead wrinkles although they may reduce wrinkles. They are designed to reposition the eyebrow. The Brow lift is done as a day procedure under general anaesthetic or twilight sedation. As in all surgery a scar is inevitable but these can be placed so as to make them largely inconspicuous and readily disguised. After the operation swelling and bruising are common and will take time to settle (7-10 days). Nerve injury is uncommon but may occur and could affect the movement pattern of the eyebrow. Infection is very uncommon, but if it does occur it can be potentially serious and requires prompt attention and antibiotics. Patients will vary in time that they need to take from work but usually around 1-2 weeks is advisable. How well the procedure lasts varies between individuals but you should get a number of years out of a brow lift. It is important to discuss all the risks and complications as well as the benefits during your consultation. Remember also that results vary from patient to patient. All efforts are taken to try to achieve the best result but a certain “look”

Eyelid surgery

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure which can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids or both and is designed to remove excess skin folds and bulging fat bags. Blepharoplasty will improve the bags and wrinkles around the eyes but will not improve wrinkles of the cheeks, temples or forehead. It also does not correct problems caused by drooping eyebrows; there are other alternatives to address problems with brows.

Facelift

Cosmedic offers a variety of facial lifts, from the traditional face lift to the S lift, Mini lift and a range of special, minimally invasive lifts for Brow areas and Neck tightening.

Aging is a natural process, which frequently results in sagging skin and wrinkles of the face. In addition, as we age, the muscles of the neck may weaken. Dr John Flynn can help improve these conditions. Both men and women of various ages request this type of surgery. As a result of advancements in the technique, it is not uncommon for patients to request facelift surgery from the ages of the late 30s to the 70s.

The "facelift" as we commonly refer to this procedure, "lifts" the face and neck in one operation. A "double chin" can be improved at the same time by a surgical procedure called sub mental lipectomy. Additional procedures, such as forehead lifting or eyelid surgery, can be performed at the same time to effect a more complete facial rejuvenation.

Fat Transfer

Fat transfer is a process whereby your own living fat cells can be transferred from other parts of your body (thighs, buttocks & abdomen are common) and re-injected into the areas of your face either for cosmetic enhancement or contour reconstruction.

Facial wrinkles and creases are part of the aging process. They begin to appear as the underlying collagen break down and wear out. This causes wrinkles and results in facial changes such as sunken temples, hollow cheeks, deeper frown lines and thinner lips. Some of the other situations where fat transfer may be useful include lip augmentation and some depressed scars. Fat transfer also is an effective method to correct the aging of the back of the hands. This can plump up the skin and help to soften the appearance of veins and tendons.

Fat transfer to the face is a safe, natural, non-allergenic procedure. Since fat transfer uses your own body cells, you can never have an allergic reaction.

Gynecomastia

About half of all men today have excess localized fat and/or excess glandular tissue in one or both breasts. Enlargement typically occurs on both sides of the chest. Surgery, Liposuction or a combination of the two may be used to treat enlarged breasts. Male breast reduction may be discouraged if you are obese or if you are overweight and have not first attempted to lose the fat around the breast area. If your enlarged breasts consist primarily of excessive fatty tissue, liposuction may be the best option. If excess glandular tissue is the primary cause, the tissue may be cut out with a scalpel. This excision may be performed alone or in conjunction with liposuction. During an excision procedure, the incision is made either on the edge of the nipple (areola) or in the underarm area. The excess glandular tissue, fat and skin from around the pigmented area surrounding the areola and from the sides and bottom of the breast is cut away by working through the incision. Major reductions that involve the removal of a significant amount of tissue and skin may require larger incisions and more visible scars. If Liposuction is also used to remove excess fat, a slim, hollow tube (cannula), is inserted directly through the existing incisions. The cannula is attached to a vacuum pump to suction out the fat. See information re Liposuction. The procedure may be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Your surgeon will discuss your anesthesia options with you once you have decided on surgery.

Labiaplasty

This is often an embarrassing area to talk about but it often causes a great deal of embarrassment and concern. Labia are often referred to as the “lips” of the vagina and at times they can be elongated, fleshy and protuberant.

 Labiaplasty can reduce the outward appearance of the labia (labia minora) and correct misshapenness or irregularities. Protruding labia may be uncomfortable, chafe against underwear or be visible through swimming costumes. Most commonly large labia may tend to make some women self conscious about their appearance, which in turn can impact on their intimate relationships.

 The area most commonly needing correction is the Labia Minora (see figure below). Sometimes however with age, the labia majora also may warrant attention. The problem which may arise here is a loss of substance and also loose skin causing irritation. With the labia majora it is usually a fat transfer graft which is required to restore a more normal appearance.

Liposuction

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is an aesthetic (cosmetic) surgical procedure designed to remove localised collections of fat, such as occur on the thighs, buttocks and abdomen, as well as the arms, neck and under the chin.

How is Liposuction performed?

Either local or general anaesthesia may be advised, depending on the extent of the procedure. A cannula attached to a high powered suction pump is inserted through a small incision and the bulging fat removed. A pressure garment is usually worn for 6 weeks post-operatively in order to decrease bruising and swelling and to encourage the skin to contract to the new shape.

What results can I expect?

Liposuction is ideal for patients who have bulges which persist after diet and exercise. It is not a substitute for weight loss. Usually the overlying skin will contract following Liposuction, however in some circumstances a procedure designed to remove excess skin may also be required.

Neck Lift

A Necklift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can help improve sagging skin of the neck. This surgery is essentially the lower section of a facelift and can be useful in someone who has aging of the neck that is out of proportion to the rest of the face. It is also useful when a person does not desire to go through the more extensive surgery that is involved with a more complete facelift. It must be realized of course that the result from a neck lift alone might be less than when combined with the added benefit of the Facelift elements.

A Necklift will improve loose, sagging skin of the neck but will not help the fine crepe-paper appearance of someone with very thin skin. Excess fat of the neck can be removed either directly or with the assistance of liposuction. This can improve the neck contour and give a sharper, more defined appearance. In the properly motivated person, a necklift can greatly improve an area of the body that has a tendency to show aging faster than other areas.

Otoplasty

This operation is usually performed to correct “sticky out ears”. This situation, although part of the range of normal appearance can cause significant embarrassment and concern with those patients. There are a variety of shapes with which patients present and so naturally there are a variety of surgical options.

Generally the scars are located behind the ears so that they are inconspicuous, but sometimes there needs to be a scar on the front aspect of the ear to achieve the desired result. The procedures may require surgery on the actual cartilage of the ear and this is not uncommonly painful in the recovery phase.

In the initial consultation Dr. Flynn will evaluate your condition and recommend the most effective technique, you should discuss your expectations frankly with the doctor during this consultation. Your expectations must be realistic and you must keep in mind that the desired result is improvement, not perfection. It is important to realise also that sometimes despite the best endeavours, the result is not exactly what you are looking for. Sometimes this can be corrected with further surgery but also sometimes it may not be possible to achieve what you hope for.

The surgery usually takes about one to two hours and is performed as a day procedure and may be carried out under local anaesthesia or a light sedation. The operative technique will depend on your physical features however, with one of the most common techniques a small incision is made in the back of the ear to expose the ear cartilage. The cartilage is then sculpted to create a more pronounced fold in the central portion of the ear. Non removable stitches may be used to help maintain a new shape.

Immediately following surgery a bandage will be applied and left in place for a couple of days. After the bandage is removed this will be replaced with a lighter headband. Most patients are able to return to work within a few days.

Do not expect both ears to match

Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty is an aesthetic (cosmetic) surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen and in some circumstances, to tighten the abdominal muscles.

You may wish to have this procedure if your abdomen is affected by obesity, skin laxity following pregnancy or weight loss. The overall body appearance is improved by reducing and recontouring abdominal skin and fat. It is not a substitute for weight reduction.

The procedure can be performed either under general anaesthetic or if only a “mini tuck” is required may be performed under twilight sedation. Excess fat and skin is removed from the lower abdomen and the muscles tightened if necessary. Some patients will have the navel repositioned. Although scars are an inevitable part of any surgery, every effort is made to make the scar as inconspicuous as possible. The scar will normally be concealed below the panty line. Repositioning of the navel will require a scar around the belly button which may be visible when the abdomen is bare.

The best results are obtained in patients near their normal weight with some laxity of the abdominal skin or a slight excess of fat or bulging of the abdominal wall. The result is usually permanent although excessive weight gain or pregnancies may undo some of the benefits. Abdominoplasty is often combined with liposuction to achieve the best result. This procedure is called lipoabdominoplasty.

 Following your surgery you will be required to wear a compression garment up to 6 weeks. You may find it difficult to walk with your back straight initially but this will improve over a few days. Pain and discomfort vary depending on the individual but this is to be expected over the first few days after which the symptoms will improve. You will be given pain medication post-operatively. You will however require some help at home in the early stages and must avoid heavy lifting and straining for six weeks. Returning to work or norm
