Testimonials

The following excerpts are from messages received from patients who have undergone procedures with Plastic Surgical Masters.

Some short and sweet comments/feedback received on gift cards to Dr Masters and his team:

I feel great, look good and have so much confidence in myself. I can wear clothes that I was not able to wear before.

To anyone thinking of having this surgery I say go for it, it sure makes a big difference in yourself. A big thanks to Dr Masters and his team.

I had always been apprehensive about plastic surgery but after having been through it, I can’t speak highly enough regarding the procedure and the results.

My self-esteem and pride in appearance has been so uplifted, it has certainly given me a more positive approach to social occasions.

So natural, but such a great difference! I can’t believe I waited until 64 years of age to do it.

My self esteem has increased dramatically and shopping for clothing is now a pleasure.

This surgery has been a positive, rewarding experience for me. It has given me back my pride, dignity and belief to be and I feel like a sensual, curvy woman for the first time ever.

I’ve had people compliment my sunglasses, my haircut, is that new colour I have on my hair, etc. I’ve yet to have someone say, “hmm, plastic surgery?” That is the testament to what a wonderful job you’ve done.

You know you have chosen a great plastic surgeon when friends comment how good you look after never saying that before, and they have no clue as to why they think that.

Since surgery, my outlook on life has changed so much. Now I feel normal again and can face life in general with a greater happier outlook.

I haven’t stopped raving about you both and I tell everyone about my procedure, that it is the best thing I could have had done!

A tummy tuck has made me feel so much better about myself and it was definitely money well spent.

I would like others to know that you are both passionate about what you do and about changing peoples lives and that you are a very real, very down to earth couple with an amazing gift.

I avoided making the first phone for a consultation for year, you guys made it all so easy and stress free and I thank you for that.

My only complaint is that I didn’t do it years ago.

Some of the longer letters/emails received:

“I had on quite a few occasions’ comments from various people saying to me how tired I looked, and I never really took much notice to it or wondered why they said that. I knew I had ‘bags’ under my eyes, but didn’t know how they looked to other people, until it kind of ‘clicked’ one day that this was the reason for their ‘tired’ comments. When I looked in the mirror that day, I just thought ‘oh my god!’ I didn’t know there was a procedure to ‘fix’ my baggy or puffy lower eyelids or more to the point, I didn’t even realize that lower eye lid surgery (blepharoplasty) existed until I had my consultation with John Masters.

Since surgery, my outlook on life has changed so much. Now I feel ‘normal’ again and can face life in general with a greater happier outlook. I have more confidence when talking to other people face to face, especially the opposite sex! I feel more motivated as I know I don’t look tired. It’s amazing how the operation results can affect ones subconscious mind, giving you more energy and you don’t even realize it.

I have a little shouts of joy when I meet someone I have not seen for a while and they say how great I am looking. Sure, people say that all the time to be polite but I can assure you I did not get that very much at all pre op. When first meeting the opposite sex (as you do!) and the good old question pops up “how old are you?” I now like to say to them “guess!” The answers are always 25 to 28. Not bad for a 34 year old!

Two close work friends said that I “looked younger” with a puzzled looks on their faces after I returned to work from the operation. I told them why a little later. They were amazed and said they would never of guessed. One of them started talking about what bothered him and what he would like to change in his appearance!

I bumped into another colleague from my industry I had not seen for a while. She said, “You look different!” with a smile and puzzled look. I could tell her mind was ticking over but I decided not to disclose my operation to her. I must say, you know you have chosen a great plastic surgeon when friends comment how good you look after never saying that before, and they have no clue as to why they think that. The reason being the final results look so natural (Thank you John!) they cannot tell you have had cosmetic surgery!”
DT – Lower Blepharoplasty

“I am so glad I went through with this surgery. After years of being unhappy about my nose and having to look at it every day to remind me of my discontentment about its shape, after much soul searching I finally took the step of having it re-shaped through surgery. Now that I have my new nose I feel so much better and more comfortable with myself. I have more confidence and am more outgoing with people. I find myself more motivated to really make the most of my life, wanting to try new things that I wouldn’t have before. Because of this new lease on life who knows what’s round the corner! The family and friends who know I have had it done have noticed a difference and people who haven’t seen me for a while before the surgery and don’t know I’ve had the surgery, have commented on how good I look, that suits me!!My husband and kids like it, as I still look the same which was important to them, just that little bit better with the slight nose adjustments. I’m so glad I did it, many thanks to you John, Leanne and the team”.

“With regards to your practice, I am completely satisfied with the operation you have done in removing the cholesterol deposits around my eyes. You have great light hands. I am pretty impressed when you injection the anaesthetics as it was done gently and didn’t cause any pain considering the injection was on the sensitive part of the face.The end result of the operation is highly commendable as the scars are hardly noticeable. My friends were likewise impressed that they were all asking about you and your services. You and Leanne your practice manager are very professional. Leanne has such a caring and warm personality that I really felt comfortable and safe during the entire operation.I will definitely keep in touch with you for any further treatments. I have likewise recommended you to my friends who are keen to consult with you about some matters.Looking forward to dealing with you in the near future”.

“Thank you so much for the great work that you did, the outcome has been great, I am thrilled with the results, it has enabled me to really fit into old clothes that I wouldn’t wear because of the terrible “flap”. I have a lot more confidence and have been able to really be happy and content now with the weight loss I had achieved but which was overshadowed by the unsightly “flap” that really annoyed me and took away from my achievements.

Now I am confident to spend all day in a “bathing suit” as I did in Aussie at Wet & Wild, up until now I have been reluctant even to get into a bathing suit let alone spend all day in one. The results are so natural that although people have realised something is different they have only put it down to “losing weight” not a major operation.

Thank you again for your efforts”.
BC – Extended Abdominoplasty

“My life has been enhanced considerable by having Plastic Surgery. It has made me much more confident and I can now wear fitting clothes comfortably and not feel embarrassed or uncomfortable.

Others have noticed my new figure and I have had many favourable comments, which have boosted my self esteem!

Aerobics and the gym are now much easier for me with my new found confidence. Your caring and competent manner John, made my surgery and recovery an easy process”.
BC – Abdominoplasty and quad blepharoplasty.

I am absolutely thrilled with the results of your surgery. My recovery is going well and the bruising has all but disappeared. The pen marks, as you joked, might be gone in time for Christmas, they’re proving a bit stubborn. The insides of my knees are still a bit tender but improving all the time… Thank you very much for doing such a great job.
CA – Liposuction to thighs and inner knees – Nelson

I am absolutely delighted with my new face and chin. Yes, it hurt and yes it was worth it. I look back at the old photos and I can’t believe the difference. Friends and family look at my old photos and also can’t believe it. It’s amazing how quickly you forget. I’ve had people compliment my sunglasses, my haircut, is that new colour I have on my hair, etc. I’ve yet to have someone say, “hmm, plastic surgery?” That is the testament to what a wonderful job you’ve done. It looks so completely natural. I’ve included a recent photo so you can see the latest new me. Yes, I love it, love it, love it. It has given me a new lease on life and I feel confident and happy every time I look in the mirror. Friends who know the truth tell me it’s the smartest thing I’ve ever done.
ML – Lower face and neck lift

“I truly believe it has changed my life. My family and friends were so supportive throughout and are so happy for me as well. They have definitely noticed a change within me. The operation has given me so much more cofidence, and postitive outlook on life”.
MC – New Plymouth

“I am absolutely delighted with the result! From the very first phone call I made to your office and spoke with Leanne to my post op recovery I felt comfortable and very satisfied with the responses and support I was getting. I was impressed with the speedy arrival of information packages in the mail that followed the numerous phone calls I’d made enquiring about this and that…

As you know I had been contemplating this for years and I know for sure that due to the smooth process I’d experienced, from that first phone it helped to ease my anxieties and fears which then resulted in an awesome recovery!!… and I feel soooo happy…”
MF – Wellington

“I had always been apprehensive about plastic surgery but after having been through it, I can’t speak highly enough regarding the procedure and the results. My self-esteem and pride in appearance has been so uplifted, it has certainly given me a more positive approach to social occasions. In fact, I have recently purchased a set of eye shadows and mascara. This is the first time in years I have worn any eye make-up. Before the operation, all the make-up just disappeared into the folds and the wrinkled bags around the eyes.

Funnily enough, friends and acquaintances have remarked on how bright and fresh I look and all have said, “It must be because you have now reached retirement and no longer work”. Not one person has noticed that I have actually been operated on, and this was the look and effect I asked you for. So natural, but such a great difference – I can’t believe I waited until 64 years of age to do it. Who knows, I may even find myself a toy boy now! John, thank you so much for giving a tired and droopy-looking old tart a bright and fresh appearance.
HJ – Quad blepharoplasty – Waiouru

Just like to share my experience to how much this surgery has changed my life. It’s a painful and uncomfortable surgery to go through but when you see the end result its all well worth it. I feel great, look good and have so much confidence in myself. I can wear clothes that I was not able to wear before. I love to exercise and it seems like I have so much more energy in me. I have had lovely comments from my families and friends and I am a lot happier person. To anyone thinking of having this surgery I say go for it, sure makes a big difference in yourself. A big thanks to John Masters and his team.

Also I’d like to say a big thank you to Leanne for all your help and support throughout the whole process. You are wonderful.
