Covid 19 And Safety

Dear Valued Patient,

Covid-19 has changed how we live and do things for the foreseeable future.  We have all adapted to social distancing, wearing masks, and being obsessive about cleanliness.

The question we ask ourselves is can we do elective (planned) procedures (operations) safely?  Yes, we can, and this is how we do it!

It comes from the principle of you protect me and I protect you.  You protect me by following all the behavioural guidelines during your day to day life.  Where we can, we do consultations over the Internet.

I and the Hospital protect you by having very strict access control.    Everyone is screened.  The Hospital is divided into green (safe) zones and yellow / red (No go) zones.  We prefer that you come on your own to the consultation so as not to fill up the consulting room.  We limit the number of patients in the waiting room.  Marks are worn by myself, and staff at all times.  There are foot-controlled hand sanitizers and screens at the reception area.  We aim for no touch interaction.  When you are due for surgery, we request you get a COVID-19 test 48 hours before.

The Hospital and all components are separated physically into green and red zones.  You go into a green zone ward and are operated in a green zone theatre.

Appropriate PPE is worn at all times.  We pay attention to detail to ensure a safe, healthy and excellent outcome.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with questions regarding surgery.

Be safe, wear a mask and be positive!

Warm regards

Paul McGarr

In 2013 I saw Dr PL McGarr to have my breasts redone as I had a bad experience before with a Plastic Surgeon. On meeting Dr McGarr I was impressed by his amazing bedside manners, the time he took to listen carefully to my concerns and what I wished for an outcome.

He performed a Breast Augmentation on me, Breast Lift and did internal stitching to even out a breast that was out of place. He also decreased the size of my areola in a separate procedure as they had stretched in the previous operations.

I was so pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend Dr McGarr. Not only is Dr McGarr a great surgeon but he is an exceptionally kind and caring doctor.

– Breast Augmentation Patient

He is truly one of the most caring medical professionals that I have ever had the honour of dealing with. Not once did he ever make me feel as if I were just another patient or a number on a file.

To him, I was a woman who had lost something that is very much what defines us as women and he understood exactly how I felt and undertook to do his very best to assist in healing me with dignity and respect, always being at the forefront.
 
I can honestly and with an open heart recommend Dr McGarr and his amazing team to anyone who may need anything done. Appreciate the body that you have now and the way that you look because it can all change in an instant.
 
From every wound there is a scar, and every scar tells a story. A story that says, I survived….”.

– Breast Reconstruction Patient

I had the pleasure and privilege of being referred to Dr Paul McGarr in 2008, following a massive weight loss of 70kgs after my gastric bypass surgery in 2006.

I found Dr McGarr to be exceptionally thorough. I knew exactly what to expect from the after effects of the surgeries and the results thereof. He always exhibited a friendly and professional bedside manner, often going the extra mile to ensure I was comfortable and healing well.

I cannot tell you how the surgeries have changed my life. I finally have the body I always dreamed about. It has added to my body confidence and fulfilled all the goals I had worked so hard to achieve.

The results of the surgeries exceeded all my expectations, as did the treatment from Dr McGarr and I have no hesitation in recommending Dr McGarr, whom I hold in the highest regard.
