I had surgery with Dr Sue Thistlewaite in Melbourne.

My assumption is that most surgeons charge a standard fee. The only thing that will vary in terms of cost is operating time. My surgery lasted for only 90 min as compared to the usual 120 mins because I did not have liposuction only excision, so I saved 30min in operating theater fees. But the surgeon fees is a flat standard fee which does not vary according to severity.

I'm guessing you have seen my posts.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to PM me. Paul is a great surgeon and he offers really good post op support. Don't be affraid to ask him questions.

Edit: don't be affraid to check out Dr Peter Widdowson on the Gold Coast as well. He has had heaps of experience. By the way, I was a student when I got my proceedure done and had to save up for it. I worked extra shifts where I could to save and it took less than a year to get enough for it.

Brisbane- can anyone recommend a plastic surgeon experienced in Gyn in Brisbane?
