5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift
Show More Dr Paul Gerarchi is a very experienced surgeon. I chose him because not only is he a plastic surgeon for aesthetics but has done corrective and reconstructive work for people born with defects or a result of illness or accident. He is very approachable and easy to talk to, he asks what your own expectations are and advises realistically within that context. He doesn't push his ideas on you or does a hard sell. He is very patient and sensitive. (I figured anyone who does corrective surgery in third world countries is a good guy!) Initially I was only going to have the neck lift but he suggested a lower face lift also. He didn't push it but more or less left me to consider it. I wanted an honest professional opinion as I was scared of having a facelift as well. When I realised that the short scar could be easily incorporated into the neck lift I decided to do both. He assured me I wouldn't look like one of those freaky wind blown stretched faced women with weird ears! The two procedures together made good aesthetic sense. I'm glad I went ahead with this, and very satisfied so far at this point of post surgery. Dr Gerarchi's Staff at Chatswood are lovely ladies, very approachable, professional yet fun. They made me feel relaxed and looked after. It's a big deal doing this sort of thing, and my decision was made after thinking and researching long and hard. I also had peri orbital fillers and some fillers on my cheekbones. I have only shown my lower face as I wished to maintain my anonymity. I would recommend Dr Gerarchi and his team to anyone who wants a professional outcome. Some other practitioners may be less expensive, or experienced but when it comes to your face, there should be no compromise. I had a friend who had this procedure by a "cosmetic cowboy" - and endured a severed facial nerve and a lot of grief. All surgery has risks, and yes, you do sign off on this, but choose the very best professional you can, and your chances of a great outcome are greatly increased.
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Show More As mentioned above I had wanted to do this for a very long time. I consulted with three other surgeons before I decided on Dr Gerarchi. I felt that his caring and calm approach eased my anxiety and stress of having surgery (as this would be my first ever time having any type of surgery) and he really listened to my concerns regarding the shape of my nose and what I hoped to achieve with the final result. From the moment I met him, I instantly felt comforted and with his extensive education and specialty of facial reconstruction, I knew I was in great hands. Not only is he wonderful, but the receptionist and clinic nurse exceeded expectations with their care. I would definitely recommend Dr Paul Gerarchi to anyone interested in having this procedure done.

Show More Tells you what you want to hear and assures you things will go well but doesn't deliver. I've since read negative reviews about him stating similar things to what I have felt/said. Not qualified or trained as a plastic reconstructive surgeon. Poor aftercare. Waste of time and money.
5 out of 5 stars Facelift Revision
Show More Dr GERARCHI had the experience, artistic skils and knowlege I was looking for. He performed a difficult revision for me, ( my original facelift failed, unfortunatley and performed by another surgeon ) dr GERARCHIs work included deeplane facelift, midfacelift, browlift, temple lift, scar revision, pixie ear lobe correction and fatgrafts . I chose dr GERARCHI out of 4 expert face surgeons. I have only one face, and I needed the best face surgeon I could find as some of the issues I had were difficult to correct. He instantly put me at ease with his polite manner and ability to communicate the proceedures he would employ to restore my face to a pleasing manner. I had confidence all the way through. His entire team were helpful and responsive in every way. I highly recommend this talented surgeon who appears to be obsessive with perfection in his work. He cares about you, and the outcome you are wanting to acheive. Your in excellent hands with this surgeon. I am very happy with the results so far, even though i know it takes time to see the final result. I wanted to look a more youthful me, and dr GERARCHI has delivered beyond my expecations considering the risks involved. excellent surgeon. When you want your face operated on, please, select some one who understands the facial,anatomy, and your individual characteristics. Dr GERARCHI is the best in my opinion.
