5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Surgery - Chatswood, NSW

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.

I have disliked the look of my nose for many years, and also experience issues with breathing. I decided to go with Dr Gerarchi as he is an ENT and Facial Specialist as opposed to a Plastics surgeon who does a little bit of everything. We...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift Revision

Needed Revision Facelift and Other Procedures to Restore Harmony to my Face - Chatswood, AU

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 Gerarchi 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.

Refreshed. Chatswood, AU

I had an upper and lower blepharoplasty, a brow lift and CO2 laser performed by Dr Paul Gerachi almost three months ago. I had made a decision about the bleph procedures and did my homework on who would be the best doctor. One visit with Paul and his staff confirmed for me that I had made the right decision. Dr Gerarchi was honest and explained that my drooping eyelids would be partly solved...

I always disliked my nose and was unable to breathe properly as my septum was deviated. My nose was crooked and had a slight hump and a bulbous tip. After many years of contemplation and research, I finally booked a consultation with Dr Gerarchi for his experience, recognition in the industry and natural work. As soon as I met Dr Gerarchi I knew I didn't need consult with any other...

1 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Complex Revision Rhinoplasty

I had a complex revision rhinoplasty requirement from a very botched primary rhino in Perth by another doctor in 2009. I had a deviated septum and my nose was crooked from an accident but in my primary rhino, the previous surgeon went overboard and did things I never asked. He destroyed my beautiful Greek nose that I now wish I never touched. I searched high and low for someone in Australia...

Facelifts: No One Size Fits All

A facelift may be a common facial surgery procedure, but there is nothing common about a facelift when you are the one seeking treatment. A facelift is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Instead, this procedure must be carefully tailored to the specific needs and level of correction desired by each patient to produce natural, beautiful results. Dr The Purpose of a Facelift A facelift is designed primarily to turn back the signs of ageing on your face. This procedure will address...

Choosing Your Facelift Surgeon

When you’re looking to have a facelift done, the first thing you do is research what the benefits of this procedure would be and how it’s done. You pour through details such as recovery times and surgical techniques before making the jump and looking for the final piece of the puzzle, the plastic surgeon that can get it done. Searching for your facial plastic surgeon isn’t like looking for your general practitioner doctor, where you decide on the one that’s closest to you. You nee...

Do I Need a Facelift or Neck Lift?

Sometimes ageing isn’t kind to us, and there’s not much we can do about the effects of gravity on the skin except to maintain a healthy weight and stay away from excess stretching, lax skin, due to weight gain, poor skin care choices and overexposure to sun damage. Maintaining a healthy weight and changing our skin care regime may not save us from loose skin either and the skin around our neck and face will lose its strength or volume from tissue loss with the natural ageing process. We sta...

Strategies for a low-risk rhinoplasty

While all cosmetic surgeries carry their own unique risks, they’re never high on anyone’s list of popular topics to discuss. It’s important to understand the risks associated with a surgery like rhinoplasty, however. You can lower your chances for post-operative complications just by making yourself aware of them and gaining an understanding of how they can occur.
