The Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons held their annual scientific meeting in April 2013 in Melbourne.
This was very well attended, with a large contingent of surgeons from North America. I was invited to present my experience with key hole brow lifts and eyelid surgery. There was considerable interest with many surgeons expressing a desire to visit and observe the techniques. There were many presentations from our overseas visitors which were very informative but it was also pleasing to realise that Australian cosmetic surgery is on par if not better than that offered elsewhere.
Currently I am seeing lots of patients who want improvement in the neck or double chin without undergoing a full facelift (and the look associated with this surgery). Over the past year I have been developing a method whereby this can be done whilst also tightening the jawline and jowl areas. This procedure has a quicker recovery time, less bruising and shorter operating times.
If you would like to find out more, Michelle and the team can inform you. Alternatively I am happy to see you for a consultation.
