* UPDATE – Dr Patrick Briggs is now based in Melbourne at Coco Ruby Plastic Surgery *
I was born with a disability called hemiparesis which is a weakness down one side of the body. For over 30 yrs I was self conscious about wearing shorts or skirts because of the difference in the size of my calves.
I finally decided to research calf implant surgery and found Dr Briggs. At the first consultation it was a lot to take in and I got pretty emotional but Dr Briggs was so supportive. He explained the process and I did not feel pressured to make any decisions. Arranging the surgery was simple – the office staff are fantastic.
At surgery, again Dr Briggs was very supportive and reassuring. Post surgery the recovery was around 6 weeks. All of my post surgery checks have been positive. Seeing the ‘before and after’ photos was a real highlight and made me realise how significant the change was.
I can honestly say the surgery was life-changing. I am absolutely thrilled with the result, and the treatment I received from Dr Briggs and his wonderful staff was first class.
