Revision Rhinoplasty New York
At the New York Center for Facial Plastic and Laser Surgery, Andrew Jacono, M.D. performs Reconstructive Facial Surgery and Corrective Facial Plastic Surgery. 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.

Doctor Jacono is regularly featured on National television shows to discuss his expertise in correcting plastic surgery with poor outcomes that have been performed by other surgeons. Unfortunately this problem is on the rise.
Here are two of his television appearances dealing with this issue:
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 Outdated techniques, under-experienced or poorly trained surgeons, poor judgment, misinterpretations of the underlying problem, or chance may also play a role in an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.

Dr. Andrew Jacono, founder of the New York Center for Facial Plastic and Laser Surgery, is frequently consulted by his colleagues for his expertise in revising and correcting bad plastic surgery results. As an expert in facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, he is known to take facial plastic surgery mistakes and turn them into success stories. The most common facial surgery complications relate to either bad eyelid surgery or bad face lift surgery.

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, or plastic 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 A's: 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.
Fortunately, in the right hands, bad plastic surgery outcomes are rare. But if you are the "one-in-a-million" with a plastic surgery mistake, then you are the one that matters!
