At Academy Face and Body Dr. Oates offers a wide range of options for cosmetic and facial plastic surgery Perth. Having performed more facelifts in Perth than any other doctor, Dr Oates is often referred to as the expert in facelift surgery. Dr. Oates offers ‘Deep Plane Face Lifts.’ This procedure takes a little longer than other facelifts and is more technical. The benefits are that it offers better results. Your facelift can be completed as an outpatient – there’s no need for you to stay in hospital over night. You will need to be accompanied back to the hospital the next day to have bandages removed and then after a week to have stiches removed.
Patients will experience mild to moderate pain from this surgery, which can easily be managed using over the counter analgesics or as prescribed by Dr Oates and his team of doctors. If you’ve lost definition of your jaw line, or are showing signs of ‘jowling,’ then a facelift could be for you. If you are not ready for a full facelift, then a mini facelift, also known as an s-lift due to the shape of the incisions made during the procedure, may be a good option and is popular with people in the 44 -55 years age bracket. Skin and underlying tissue is lifted to give a more youthful appearance.
This is a less invasive procedure compared to a full facelift and therefore you’ll require less down time for recovery. Again, you can undertake this procedure as an outpatient so there’s no need to stay in hospital overnight.
Nose jobs are another very popular form of cosmetic plastic surgery. Rhinoplasty – the medical name for a nose job – involves the reshaping of the nose to improve appearance or to relieve airway difficulties. Because of this it’s considered in many ways to be an art form and it’s one at which Dr. Oates excels.
Rhinoplasty, also referred to as a nose job can be completed under either general anesthetic or twilight sedation without the need for you to stay in hospital. For the majority of patients, it’s also leaves no visible scars as incisions are made within the nose. For most patients it’s a fairly pain free procedure – you’ll wear a splint on your nose for the first 7 days to help reduce swelling and your nose may feel blocked in the same way as it does when you have a cold for up to two weeks.
Academy Face and Body also offer a range of body sculpting and shaping treatments including liposuction. Facial procedures include blepharoplasty – eye lid reshaping – and endoscopic brow lifts, sometimes referred to as a brow lift which gently raises the eyebrows to give your face a more youthful appearance.
With the aim of providing patients with the most complete range of treatment options possible, Academy Face and Body is expanding its range of procedures on offer and will soon be offering tummy tucks and breast augmentations.
Tummy tucks, which are known medically as abdominoplasty, are about reshaping your stomach to make it firmer and with a flatter appearance after significant weight loss, or pregnancy. Carried out under general anesthetic, the procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat tissue from the abdominal area. It should be noted that this isn’t surgery, for weight loss, it’s about reshaping your body after weight loss, or to combat the effects of aging.
It will take about three hours to complete the surgery and you’ll need to stay in hospital for two nights, and take a couple of weeks off of work for recovery.
Breast implants are another form of cosmetic surgery that sees a high level of demand. Women may be looking to increase the size of their breasts, or improve their appearance or symmetry. Breast surgery can be completed as an outpatient under twilight sedation, or as an inpatient under general anesthetic.
