Surgical Care in Sutherland Shire
Dr Safvat is a specialist plastic and reconstructive surgeon, which means that you can have your face, breast, and body concerns addressed by a professional. If you would like to find out more about the procedures offered by Dr Safvat, you can book a consultation with him to discuss your needs and goals.
When the size of the breasts is disproportionate to the body, it can cause pain and discomfort. That is why Dr Safvat offers Breast Reduction Surgery, which can offer relief from this problem, as well as an improved shape to the breasts.
Through administering a general anaesthetic and surgery to remove any excess skin and fat from the chest, the breasts can be reduced in size to make them more in proportion with a patient’s body shape.
The medial pedicle technique is used to ensure there is minimal scarring, but some downtime will be required for recovery. Usually, a couple of weeks should be taken off work and a special bra will have to be worn for six weeks.
Blepharoplasty with Dr Safvat
Is your vision suffering as a result of excess eyelid skin? Dr Safvat offers Blepharoplasty to correct excess skin that can appear on the eyelids due to the aging process. Not only can this improve your vision, but it can also rejuvenate the eye area and make you appear less tired and more refreshed.
Eyelid Surgery involves removing excess skin, muscle and fat from the upper and lower eyelids, which can be conducted within two hours under general anaesthetic.
There can be some swelling and bruising after the surgery, which means some downtime is required for recovery.
If you have lost of weight or have been pregnant, you may have excess skin and fat around your stomach area. This can be corrected by Dr Safvat through his Abdominoplasty surgery.
Through a mini tummy tuck or a full tummy tuck, patients can have any excess skin and fat removed. This also has the effect of tightening the abdominal muscles. Some downtime will be required for Abdominoplasty and patients will also have to wear an abdominal binder garment for a number of weeks to ensure healthy healing.
Breast Lift Surgery
Life events can affect the appearance of the breasts, such as pregnancy and aging. The breasts can lose their natural volume and this causes breast ptosis (stretched and drop in skin). At the hospital, Dr Safvat offers Breast Lift surgery to create firmer and more youthful breasts.
During surgery, the medial pedicle technique is used to remove any excess skin and to reshape the breasts. There is minimal scarring from the procedure and swelling and bruising will subside over time.
Patients will be required to wear a medical garment after they have left hospital for a number of weeks and time off work is recommended for around one or two weeks.
Sutherland Shire Plastic Surgery: Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)
If you or your child has protruding and prominent ears, Dr Safvat offers Otoplasty or Ear Surgery to correct large ears that stand out.
Patients will be administered a general anaesthetic before surgery and Dr Safvat will remove any excess skin and cartilage from around the ears to reshape them and set them back closer to the head.
Surgery lasts around one or two hours per ear and some swelling and bruising is expected after the procedure. This means that downtime is required for recovery and a head band will have to be worn every night for the first month.
Implant Removal (Capsulectomy)
Do you have breast implants that have become distorted over time? This may be due to the capsules that have been placed around the implants. In this case, Dr Safvat can conduct implant removal to prevent further pain and discomfort you are experiencing, as well as reshape the breasts.
Patients can have modern implants inserted through surgery, which requires a general anaesthetic. Some downtime is recommended for implant removal, with patients normally taking around one or two weeks off work to rest.
Gynaecomastia (Male Breast Reduction Surgery)
There are many reasons why men suffer with gynaecomastia, but the excess breast tissue can be an issue for some men. This is why Dr Safvat offers Male Breast Reduction surgery to his patients in Sutherland Shire.
This procedure involves removing the excess breast tissue and any fat from around the chest to make it appear flatter. It is recommended that patients take around one or two weeks off work for rest and recovery from surgery, allowing any swelling to subside.
