Plastic Surgery Procedures Geelong
Dr Richard Rahdon is a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS). He specialises in cosmetic surgery of the breast, face and body and also performs a wide range of reconstructive procedures including breast, hand and skin cancer surgery.
Dr Rahdon was admitted to the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons after 17 years of training. He then undertook further fellowship training in plastic and reconstructive surgery in Oxford, UK. He returned to Australia after further experience with a highly respected cosmetic surgeon in London. This means he has the qualifications and experience that you can trust.
In 2009, Dr Rahdon relocated to Geelong where he has developed his two practices: Body Recon Surgical Practice and Body Recon Cosmetic Clinic. Dr Rahdon’s enthusiasm, expertise, skill and compassion have seen his surgical practice flourish. In addition to performing many plastic and reconstructive surgeries privately through Body Recon Surgical Practice, he also works at Barwon Health, The Geelong Hospital, covering on-call plastic surgery duties as well as having regular operating lists.
Dr Rahdon is dedicated to providing his patients with the highest quality cosmetic, reconstructive and non-surgical procedures. He is committed to providing innovative techniques and regularly attends conferences and meetings both in Australia and overseas to ensure that he stays up-to-date with the latest advances in technology. All the staff at Body Recon are trained to the highest standards and pride themselves on their care, professionalism and expertise. The Body Recon team provides a caring and compassionate environment to ensure that your experience with Dr Rahdon and his team is second-to-none.
Dr Rahdon has consulting rooms on the 5th floor of St John of God Hospital and also at Body Recon Cosmetic Clinic which is located at 96 Gheringhap Street in Geelong. When you make an appointment to see Dr Rahdon, you will be advised which location to attend.
The first step is an initial consultation with Dr. Rahdon. This is an opportunity to discuss your options with him and work out together what is best for you. It is also the opportunity to obtain more information about the procedure that you are interested in and how it will work for you. Dr Rahdon and his team will explain every step of the surgery, the risks and desired outcomes as well as any other questions you may have. Dr. Rahdon can show you “before” and “after” photos of his work.
A comprehensive medical history will be taken and examination done during your consultation. We are also able to organise a suitable date for your procedure at this stage. A second consultation can be arranged, if required, prior to surgery.
Body Recon has excellent operating facilities in our rooms at St John of God Hospital, where Dr Rahdon is able to perform a range of procedures from the treatment of skin cancers and carpal tunnel syndrome to more complex surgery such as otoplasty, blepharoplasty and labioplasty. This option allows for a much more cost effective solution to surgery for patients without private health insurance.
For more major surgeries Dr Rahdon operates most commonly at the award winning St John of God Day Surgery Centre and St John of God main theatres but also operates at Geelong Private Hospital and Barwon Health.
Recovery & Follow-up
Dr Rahdon regards this as a very important part of your care. You will be advised pre-operatively of any limitations to work or regular activities and how often Dr Rahdon would like to review you following surgery. He needs to ensure that you are recovering well and that you are happy with the results of your procedure. Patients will be supported 24/7 by an on-call Plastic Surgeon as well as a nursing contact for cosmetic patients.
Feel free to give us a call on (03) 5221 3739 at any stage. Dr. Rahdon’s surgical practice manager, Di, will be able to answer many of your general questions.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
