Dr Ellis Choy is a renowned specialist in plastic and cosmetic surgery. He is also the Medical, Artistic and Creative (MAC) Director at Zilver Lining Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, founded in 2011, with clinics in Sydney and Coffs Harbour. Dr Choy remains at the forefront of advancements in surgical procedures, utilising state-of-the-art techniques for the best results with his patients at some of Australia’s most prestigious specialist clinics and hospitals.
Since graduating from the University of Sydney in 1997, Dr Choy has continually progressed as a highly regarded plastic surgeon. Dr Choy completed his general surgery postgraduate studies at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney, and by 2004 had gained a fellowship with the
Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS). It was here that Dr Choy refined his talent as a general surgeon (focusing on breast and skin oncology) and also with reconstructive surgery (face, breast and body work).
Dr Choy’s dedication earned him more fellowships in 2004, when he completed sub speciality training in breast surgery at the Sydney Breast Cancer Institute, along with surgical oncology at the Sydney Melanoma Unit, now known as the Melanoma Institute Australia. The tireless determination paid off, with Dr Choy being selected for advanced surgical training in plastic and reconstructive surgery.
In 2005, Dr Choy completed his Master of Surgery thesis on patient preferences in multidisciplinary breast care, for which he was awarded a National Breast Cancer Foundation scholarship. The evolution of advanced surgical procedures and best clinical practices is evidenced by Dr Choy’s pursuit of excellence, and upon completion of plastic surgery training he was awarded a second FRACS fellowship in plastic surgery in 2010.
During 2010, Dr Choy further expanded his expertise and knowledge base by completing his plastic surgery fellowship at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Adelaide. Here he honed his skills in reconstructive and cosmetic breast plastic surgery as well as related body contouring works. Another fellowship followed soon after, with Dr Choy specialising in surgical and non-surgical cosmetic facial procedures with the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
The intensive formative training, followed by years of dedicated practice, has resulted in Dr Choy becoming a leading plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgeon. Dr Choy’s qualifications are extensive. He is a member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the Australian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the International Confederation of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery(IPRAS).
The comprehensive services of Dr Choy are understandably in demand and he holds appointments at Northshore Specialist Day Hospital, Strathfield Private Hospital, Concord Hospital, Castlecrag Private Hospital, and Baringa Private Hospital.
Whilst all the study and accreditation through Dr Choy’s professional career is impressive, the main driver behind Dr Choy’s character is that he is passionate about providing patients with a positive outcome, always looking to the horizon and future with a silver lining in mind.
Are you a patient of Dr Ellis Choy ?WRITE A REVIEW
I am now around 6 months post op with Dr Ellis Choy and I could not be happier. I am lucky to have three beautiful kids and after four years of breast feeding I was left with an empty and asymmetrical B cup and a lot of sag for such small breasts.
I have thought about a breast augmentation for many years but always thought it was out of reach. When I finished breastfeeding I decided to do some research and see where it went. I found Dr Choy first through the Trusted Surgeons website and then read lots of wonderful reviews on the Cosmetic Journey website (I was intentionally avoiding ‘Cosmetic’ surgeons).
After some deliberation I booked a consult with Dr Choy and I didn’t look back. I submitted an online enquiry late one night and had a call back the following morning from Dr Choy’s office. His Executive Assistant Natalie was absolutely lovely and was able to answer all my initial questions and offer me an appointment time that would suit me, as I was travelling from interstate.
When I met with Dr Choy he had a lovely manner and was very personable. He spoke about his experience and the different types of patients he sees and was very clear about wanting to understand and meet my expectations. He took the time to ask about my lifestyle and was able to show me example before and after photos of patients with similar breasts and their results which immediately gave me confidence that he would be able to achieve the look I wanted.
After the first consultation I knew he was the surgeon for me. The process of booking my surgery was seamless and his staff (Natalie, Siobhan and Janie) were helpful and attentive along the way. Always available to answer my enquiries (and there were a few pre op!) and put me at ease.
I was quite nervous on the day of surgery, having never been under a GA before. I found Dr Choy and all the staff at North Shore Private were not only professional but really calming and nurturing. I was really well cared for and Dr Choy checked in on me throughout the day and called me the following day to check in on me.
I am so happy with my results and love the look and feel of my new breasts. My clothes look so much better and I feel more confident. Dr Choy helped me to pick a great size for my build that suit my shape and are very proportional.
My friends and family who knew about my surgery are full of compliments at how natural my breasts look and I’ve had a few requests for his contact details. All in all, a five star experience.
