Plastic Surgery Repairs
In the right hands, bad plastic surgery outcomes are
rare. We hope that you are not in the position of needing a repair.
Unfortunately, Dr Hoenig is no longer seeing patients for revisions
of prior eyelid or facial plastic surgery or injections.
The goal of any facial
plastic surgery is to create a beautiful, youthful, and natural
appearance. Because surgery is an art and not an exact science,
though, the cosmetic surgery outcome may not always be favorable.
Most complications of cosmetic surgery are not true
complications but rather unrealized expectations. In some cases,
however, true complications do occur.
How the patient heals is often the greatest contributor
to undesired results. Some patients form excessive scarring both
internally or externally, leading to malposition or malfunction
of the tissues. Outdated techniques, under-experienced or poorly
trained surgeons, poor judgment, misinterpretations of the underlying
problem, or chance may also play a role in an unsatisfactory outcome.
Often, plastic surgery mistakes will correct themselves over time,
but when the bad plastic surgery is on the most visible part of
your body, that is your face, the results can be devastating, and
a solution to the problem should be sought.
Of course, any surgery has inherent risks and potential
complications. However, there are some measures you can take to
minimize your risk. Before consenting to facial plastic surgery,
it is important to know that your doctor is certified
in a related field ophthalmology / oculoplastic surgery,
ENT/ facial plastic surgery, head and neck surgery, cosmetic surgery
or plastic surgery. (Some dermatologists also are experienced in
facial cosmetic and laser surgery). It is important to find out
what procedures your doctor specializes in, how many he or she has
performed and how recently, and research his or her track record
with the state medical board. Try to get a referral to a cosmetic
surgeon from a doctor or a friend who has had a procedure similar
to one you are considering. Look at before
and after photos to see examples of his or her results. Plan
to be in your best physical health before having surgery, and agree
to follow pre- and post-operative instructions, which are designed
to optimize your result. Discuss with your surgeon the anticipated
and realistic results. Finally, evaluate your surgeon for the three
As: affability, approachability, and availability. This will
give you an idea of how your surgeon will handle any complications
in the unlikely event that one does occur.
