Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Procedures
Are you experiencing pain and discomfort due to large breasts? When your breasts are a disproportionate size to your body, this can be highly inconvenient and lead to constant back and shoulder pain.
Dr Safvat, a leading plastic surgeon in Miranda, offers breast reduction surgery, which involves removing any excess fat, tissue and skin from the breasts in order to improve the patient’s quality of life.
When the Medial Pedicle Technique is used, there is minimal scarring and a special bra that is worn for six weeks after surgery ensures the patient experiences minimal pain and swelling as well as exceptional results. Patients will need to take time off to recover from this procedure.
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
When the skin on the eyelids begins to become excessive, this can not only make you look older than you are but it could affect your vision too.
Dr Safvat consults patients for blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery at his plastic surgery in Miranda. The procedure would then be performed at one of the fully accredited hospitals where Dr Safvat operates in the Sutherland Shire. The procedure aims to rejuvenate the eyelids and remove any drooping skin, excess fat and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids.
Some swelling and bruising can be expected during recovery but this will subside with rest and a short time off work.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
If you have lost a lot of weight or gone through pregnancy, it is common to develop loose skin around the waist and stomach. This can be corrected with Dr Safvat’s abdominoplasty.
This is a general anaesthetic procedure that is best known as a tummy tuck and it’s designed to remove loose skin and tighten the abdominal muscles. Patients can achieve their desired body shape by scheduling a full or mini tummy tuck procedure. Dr Safvat will discuss the different options with you.
Some downtime will be needed to recovery from abdominoplasty and it is best to take 3-4 weeks off of work for your recovery, depending on the type of work you do. This will be discussed during your consultation in our Miranda rooms.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
As women get older, it is normal for sagging skin to appear on the breasts and for volume to decrease. However, this can be corrected with breast lift surgery from Dr Safvat.
During the two to three-hour procedure, excess skin will be removed and the breasts will be reshaped. It is recommended that patients take a couple of weeks off of work to recover.
Some swelling is common after surgery but scarring is kept to a minimum because Dr Safvat uses the Medial Pedicle Technique and is one of the most highly-experienced plastic surgeons in Miranda.
Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
In some people, they find their ears stick out and protrude.
Dr Safvat offers otoplasty or ear surgery, which sets back prominent ears and corrects their positioning. Under a general anaesthetic, Dr Safvat will remove any excess cartilage and skin and reposition the ears.
This surgery is suitable for children and adults. Some downtime will be needed for this surgery and patients have to wear a headband at night for a few weeks to maintain the new position of the ears.
When you have problems with the capsules around your implants, this can cause the breasts to look distorted and lead to pain and discomfort in this region.
Yet, with implant removal, Dr Safvat can remove these capsules and insert new implants after consultation at his plastic surgery in Miranda in order to improve the shape of the breasts and alleviate discomfort.
This surgery requires a general anaesthetic and will be performed in one of the accredited hospitals in the Sutherland Shire that Dr Safvat operates in. Some bruising and swelling will be experienced during recovery. One to two weeks of downtime will be required following this procedure.
Male Breast Reduction Surgery (Gynaecomastia)
When men suffer from gynaecomastia, they have excess breast tissue. However, Dr Safvat can transform the appearance of the chest and solve this problem by performing male breast reduction surgery. During the procedure, the excess breast tissue and fat is removed and because the incisions are strategically placed, scarring can be kept to a minimum.
The average male breast reduction procedure lasts about one to two hours and requires a general anaesthetic. One to two weeks off of work is recommended for a successful recovery.
Preparing for Your Plastic Surgery Consultation
If you want to achieve your ideal outcome, it’s important to choose the right surgeon. To ensure you make an informed decision, here are a few things to keep in mind when evaluating your choices.
Is the Surgeon Registered with the ASAPS? Your surgeon should always be a member of the ASAPS (Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons), which guarantees he/she has the necessary qualifications to perform your procedure. There are a number of unqualified and untrained doctors who mislead patients using social media and false promises, which is why it’s important to check this.
Check the AHPRA Website. To double check whether a surgeon is definitely qualified, visit the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency’s website and search for their name and surname. This site will tell you exactly what their qualifications are and if they have a speciality. By choosing a surgeon who is an AHPRA-registered specialist, it guarantees the highest standards.
Ask Questions about Your Procedure. Ask as many questions as you need to during your consultation as this will not only put your mind at ease but give you a better idea of how experienced and knowledgeable your surgeon really is.
Where Will Your Surgery Take Place? Make sure that your surgery is taking place in an accredited facility before you decide to go ahead. This way, if anything happens to go wrong during your surgery, the necessary safety equipment will be available and your medical team will know how to respond appropriately. Office-based surgical facilities don’t need to be licensed, which means the risks are higher.
How Involved Will Your Surgeon Be in Your Recovery? Surgery is a highly personal journey and you want to make sure that you can rely on your surgical team from start to finish. Find out just how involved your surgeon will be in your recovery so that you know what to expect. You need to feel comfortable and cared for.
