Hey ladies, Just wondering if anyone could recommend any good plastic surgeons in Perth? I'm looking to have reconstruction early next year and trying to decide which option to go with, either a latissimus dorsi, TUG or Gluteal flap. Can anyone share their experiences, pros and cons. I hear there's not many surgeons who do the TUG in Perth so willing to go interstate.

Heyas - have you spoken to Dr Lee Jackson at Fiona Stanley Hospital in Perth? He's pretty good (I used him and his staff are lovely too). I have implants but he's the head of the department and is willing to listen to everything you say and ask.
