Breast Reduction Kogarah
If your breasts are too big in comparison with your body, this can lead to discomfort and back pain.
Through breast reduction surgery, Dr Safvat can remove any excess fat, tissue and skin to make the breasts in a better proportion to the body.
This should alleviate pain and discomfort, as well as improve the shape of your breasts.
This surgery requires a general anaesthetic and the procedure can take up to four hours.
Some downtime is required for breast reduction surgery, including a hospital stay for a few days.
In addition, patients can expect to wear a supportive bra garment for a number of weeks.
Over time, the skin can lose its natural elasticity due to age. This includes the eye area and eyelids, which can not only make us look older in appearance, but it can also compromise eyesight.
But, Dr Safvat offers blepharoplasty as a solution for the excess skin in the eyelids. Through a surgical procedure, excess skin, muscle and fat from around the eyes can be removed to revitalise the appearance and improve vision quality.
Some swelling and bruising is normal after eye lid surgery and some downtime will be required for successful results.
Tummy Tuck – Abdominoplasty
If you are experiencing loose skin around the stomach area due to weight loss or pregnancy, Dr Safvat offers abdominoplasty or a tummy tuck to remove this loose skin.
This surgery requires a general anaesthetic and surgery can last up to four hours depending on whether you have a full tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck procedure.
Some time off work will be required to recover from abdominoplasty and wearing an abdominal bind for up to six weeks will help with healing.
Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy)
As the years go by, age can take a toll on the body. For example, the breasts can lose their natural volume and the skin can begin to sag.
However, Dr Safvat offers breast lift surgery to combat this problem and allow women to have firmed and more youthful breasts again.
This procedure uses the medial pedicle technique to avoid visible scarring and surgery normally lasts around three hours.
Any excess skin will be removed and this will allow Dr Safvat to reshape the breasts.
Some downtime will be required for swelling and bruising to heal, as well as avoiding exercise and strenuous activity for a number of weeks.
Kogarah Plastic Surgery: Otoplasty
Prominent ears are something that you are born with and often children in particular choose to have Otoplasty surgery to correct the problem.
With the help of Dr Safvat, large and protruding ears can be corrected and set closer to the head.
Otoplasty is a surgery that requires a general anaesthetic and can be done in childhood or as an adult.
The excess skin and cartilage will be removed and the ears moulded to their desired shape.
Some rest and downtime are required for otoplasty, which includes wearing a head band at night for a number of weeks.
Implant Removal – Capsulectomy
Are your implants causing you pain? If you notice that your breasts have become distorted in shape and are causing discomfort, this may be down to the capsules around them.
To correct this problem and relief any pain you are having, Dr Safvat offers implant removal.
In addition, he can insert new and modern implants to improve the shape of the breasts.
Some downtime is required for this procedure, as well as a hospital stay being necessary straight after surgery.
Gynaecomastia – Male Breast Reduction
Gynaecomastia occurs when men have excess breast tissue in the chest.
But, Dr Safvat offers male breast reduction surgery to achieve a contoured shape and remove excess breast tissue and fat.
This surgery required a general anaesthetic and there will be some downtime needed for successful recovery.
There can be some swelling and bruising afterwards, which means time off work is recommended, as well as avoiding exercise for a number of weeks.
