Facial Plastic Surgery Revisions & Second Opinions
Though everyone expects their long-planned facial plastic surgery to provide outstanding results the first time, this is not always the case. Sometimes, patients are unhappy with their results, and some even feel as if their surgeries made them look worse rather than better. If this is the case for you, Dr. Mardirossian and the team at Mardirossian Facial Aesthetics can provide amazing revisions using the latest techniques. And if you simply want a second opinion, Dr. Mardirossian can assist with that, as well.
Plastic Surgery Revision Consultations
If you are unhappy with the results of your plastic surgery, there are a few things to keep in mind.
- Have you healed completely from your surgery? In the days (and sometimes weeks, depending on the procedure) after your surgery, you will likely see significant swelling, bruising, and redness. You should not be concerned with this; it is very often 100% normal. You should not judge the results of your surgery until you have completely healed, because as the swelling resolves, your appearance will likely change significantly. Sometimes it may take three or four weeks to see the final results. Other times, it may take a few months.
- Have you spoken with your surgeon? Rarely, surgeons encounter complications that do not allow them to complete plastic surgeries as planned. This may leave you with results you did not expect. In this case, you should talk to your surgeon about his or her findings and learn more about how to resolve the underlying complications.
- Have you gotten a second opinion? Scheduling an appointment with another surgeon may also provide you some insight into your results. This is one of the first things you should do if you are not satisfied with your previous surgery.
If you have done all of these things, and you still feel unhappy with your results, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Mardirossian. He can review your medical history and your surgery, then provide options for you to get the look you originally wanted.
Getting a Second Opinion
It is always a great idea to get a second opinion before undergoing a procedure. In fact, even Dr. Mardirossian encourages his patients to consult with more than one surgeon before scheduling their procedures. Getting a second opinion is vital for several reasons. In some cases, the original surgeon may not have recommended all the best procedures for your unique needs. In others, it may simply be that another surgeon is more experienced with the type of surgery you want. Obtaining second opinions can also help you set your mind at ease, especially if you are concerned about potential complications, anesthesia options, and even your recovery.
If you think you may need a surgical revision, or if you’d like a second opinion about a surgical procedure you are considering, feel free to contact Mardirossian Facial Aesthetics to schedule your consultation. Dr. Mardirossian will review your case and provide you with an honest and impartial assessment based on his in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and aesthetics.
