IS IT TIME FOR REVISION?
Plastic surgery can improve an individual’s appearance and boost their self-confidence and feelings of self-worth. At Panthea Clinics, our philosophy is to appreciate what looks and feels natural. The hallmark of excellence in plastic surgery is subtlety; illuminating your own beauty as opposed to creating something unnatural. At the same time, it is important to not only focus on aesthetic results, but also maintaining the function and harmony of the face and body.
Unfortunately, some patients undergo a procedure where the surgery does not go as planned and they are dissatisfied with the outcome. This can occur as a result of an inexperienced surgeon in Australia or overseas, a patient not following proper post-operative care instructions, or possibly the patient had unrealistic expectations of what the surgeon could achieve. If you are unhappy with the result of your primary procedure, please contact us today. Dr Ross Farhadieh is a highly qualified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has performed many revisional surgeries over the last 20 years. Dr Farhadieh and his experienced team of medical professionals here at Panthea can help you feel confident in your skin once again.
When can you undergo revision surgery?
Although you may want to undergo revision surgery as soon as possible, it is important that you allow time to fully heal following your primary procedure. This can take anywhere between six months and one year. This is because some surgeries do not reveal their final outcome until all residual swelling has subsided. For example, breasts will gradually and continually change following a cosmetic breast procedure. Some patients discover that after these changes take place, their results are more to their liking so they decide that they do not need revision surgery anymore. However, this is not always the case. If you have endured the waiting period and still wish to proceed with revision surgery, then the decision to re-operate should be made jointly by you and your surgeon after careful deliberation of the risks and potential complications, as well as the prospects for improvement.
Choosing your revision plastic surgeon
- Make sure your plastic surgeon has at least ‘FRACS(Plast)’ after their name.
- Ensure that your surgeon has had formal training in their sub-specialty area.
- Choose a surgeon who is completely honest with you.
- Have a look at some before and after pictures, being mindful of their limitations.
- Do not reach too much into social media.
- Be aware of the rules on reviews.
- Trust your instincts.
