19 year old Sarah Hazell fell asleep at the wheels of her car on a fateful Sunday December 2015. Her car veered and then rolled off the road. Sarah was rescued and flown to the Canberra Hospital.
Her sole injury was amputation of her right hand along with significant loss of skin and soft tissues. Dr Farhadieh saw Sarah in the emergency department, where she was surrounded by her siblings, remaining inspiringly calm throughout their discussion regarding the extent of injury.
From facelifts to botox injections and anti-wrinkle treatments, procedures that focus on aesthetics have changed dramatically over the last few years. Because of this, individuals are finding it more and more difficult to find the right surgeon to meet their needs.

Tuberous breast is a rare congenital abnormality of the breasts caused by breast tissue not proliferating properly during puberty.

WHAT IS GYNAECOMASTIA? Gynaecomastia is a common benign condition resulting in enlargement of male breast tissue. From a surgical point of view, it is best to define gynaecomastia as a persistent enlargement of male breast tissue.

THE NOSE The nose is a complex three-dimensional structure with critical structural and functional roles, which, by virtue of its position, serves as the central component of the face. Its relationship to surrounding structures is in part responsible for a harmonious, pleasing visage as a whole. Functionally, the nose provides an airway and acts to […]
The significance of a person’s face The face is central to a person’s identity, and is the most defining feature of a person’s appearance. A person’s identification of self, their psychological wellbeing and, indeed, their life, revolves around their face. A person’s self-image and self-esteem are powerfully influenced by their appearance. The way people are […]
Blepharoplasty, commonly referred to as eye lift surgery, can restore harmony and give a refreshed, youthful appearance. The aim of the procedure is to remove excess skin, reduce all herniated (protruding underlying fat causing puffiness of the eyelids) tissues to their rightful place and tighten the skin and appearance of the eyelids. Addressing the upper […]
First a little lesson in history. Breast augmentation is the most popular aesthetic surgery procedure in the Western World. Given its history, there is a vast amount of scientific literature devoted to the subject. I should know as I have contributed two comprehensive, most current and up to date book chapters to this subject for Plastic Surgeons. […]
Complications in surgery are divided into general and procedure specific and the rhinoplasty is no exception to this rule. Here we will focus on procedure specific complications related to rhinoplasty. Perhaps the most catastrophic complication in rhinoplasty surgery would be the risk of CSF (Cerebrospinal Fluid) leak. This can happen during any surgery that involves […]
A simple way to understand the nose is to think of it as a tent. This tent is divided into three parts. The upper third, the middle third and the lower third. It is pitched and given structural support by bone in the upper third, bone and cartilage in the middle third and cartilage only […]
So you’re doing your homework and you’re considering having a rhinoplasty or colloquially known as a nose job. What are the most important things that you need to know before you proceed with surgery!? Let’s take a walk through History The first thesis on rhinoplasty was written in the 19th century by Von Graffe called […]
Recently there has been a spate of adverse publicity surrounding plastic surgery. The most recent issue that has been raised is the increased use of opiates to the point of addiction correlating with the increased rates of surgery.
1. Skin only excisions are not the answer! Some form of Superfical Musculo-Aponeurotic System(SMAS) based surgery is needed to achieve durable and natural results. Long-term results that maintain shape and harmony are only possible if an appropriate SMAS -based technique is used. 2. Short scar technique only refers to the skin incision technique, potentially any of […]
Our face forms such a pivotal part of our sense of self that when considering any surgery, it is only natural to be concerned about the possible complications. Facelift surgery is performed routinely by facial aesthetic trained plastic surgeons. Given the intricacy of the anatomy and the vital requirements for meticulous surgery in close proximity […]
As we have previously discussed, our recognition of self is intimately associated with our faces. This intricate anatomical organ helps us not only in vital life requirements of breathing and eating but in people it is the most important organ of higher social function. Facial expressions, our speech and gestures define and give context to […]
With Mitz and Peyronie who described the anatomical layer of Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic System (SMAS) in 1976, innovation in facelift surgery techniques followed. Two enduring techniques which yield reliable, as well as natural long lasting results, are the extended and the high SMAS techniques. Extended SMAS Technique The extended technique was first popularised by Dr Stuzin […]
The discovery The mid-70s saw an explosion in our understanding of facial rejuvenation principles and anatomy. For the first time it was recognised that a layer in between the skin subcutaneous fat superficially, and bone and glandular structures in the deeper layer contributed a great deal to the appearance of the face. Dr Skoog, a […]
Our face is the most inextricable sense of our identity. It is on this canvas that life plays out, blemishes of time, exposure to the environment and lifestyle are reflected over time. It is no wonder then that many of us seek a reset of this clock. To re-establish a sense of youth, a feeling […]
The facelifts of today have had a big refresh – and there are more developments on the way. BY RICKY ALLEN Facelifts have come a long way since that ‘windtunnel’ look of the 80s and 90s, when the skin on the face was overly pulled back and unnaturally tight. Today, facelifts are all about providing […]
Perhaps no other part of our body relates more to our sense of self then our face. It is no wonder then that the face which stares us in the mirror reflects how we view and feel about ourselves and for better or worse how society broadly sees us. When considering facelift or facial rejuvenation […]

It is natural that when it comes to considering rejuvenation surgery specifically facelift surgery, that we do as much research as possible. Inevitably we will come across the term Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic System (SMAS). Often however, there is very little explanation about […]
