Neck Lift Revision with Fat Transfer to Jawline and Lower Face - India

I had the unfortunate experience of being very unhappy with a neck lift I had in Australia. I was unhappy with the unnatural look and sharpness to the Jawline and the unsightly pleating to both sides of my neck on turning that was not the usual pleating. I had spent just over 12 months trying to find a solution or a surgeon that would help me with a revision. My original surgeon would not help at all. I saw so many in my home town of Brisbane and traveled to see many in other states of Australia. Certainly most surgeons could see my problem, and even sympathize with me but few would offer a solution or revision. Then I found Dr. Sameer. I was actually considering going to Thailand and was on a site discussing this when someone mentioned Dr. Sameer so I looked him up. His prompt reply to my emails was refreshing and also he was very detailed in his response, taking the time to explain in detail what he saw from my photos', why he thought it had happened and what he thought he could do to help with a revision. I was very relieved to finally have someone take me seriously and offer some help. I had been losing hope. I was quoted a price that I was very happy with, even including the airfares it was reasonable and so within a couple of weeks of contact my surgery was booked and I was on a flight to Mumbai! I was looked after so well by the lovely staff at the center, Sharada was wonderful and the team of nurses fantastic. It is a culture shock travelling to India from Australia, I won't lie, but I was sold on Dr. Sameer and after meeting him even more so. My initial surgery went well, I was just amazed by the lack of bruising and swelling in the first few days. Truly you could hardly tell I had surgery. A a few days after the initial surgery and the reveal and I actually decided I wanted further surgery to just 'tweak' some of the things I still didn't like. Even though the surgery was a success. Dr. Sameer was willing to discuss this at length with me and go back to surgery to try and improve what I was seeing. We came up with a plan together, just so amazing. I also at that time had a fat graft to my lower face and Jawline to improve the thin appearance the original surgery had left me with and to redefine my Jawline. After the second surgery I was over the moon with the result. What a skilled and innovative surgeon Dr. Sameer is and so willing to acomodate his patients needs if at all possible with the best result he could achieve. He really does want the best for his patients. I saw him everyday twice a day even on the weekends. Nothing was ever to much trouble for him or for his staff. I will admit I was dubious to start with and couldn't quite believe I had made this decision to leave Australia and travel to Mumbai for Plastic Surgery. But what a life changing decision it was and I can't believe how successful. I am a very tenacious person and I had really tried very hard to find someone to help me. I had been told it was an unusual case and many were not happy to touch me. We have many good surgeons in Australia but I had to travel to India to find the best surgeon. Now that I have found him I won't be able to go to anyone else! Which is very inconvenient but I just wouldn't put myself in anyone else hands now. He is a Magician and a wonderful kind, skilled and professional Doctor. If you are considering Dr. Sameer then I can without hesitation recommend him. Don't even have a second thought, Dr. Sameer is a rarity among surgeons.

Forgot to add a few things!

In my eagerness to add my review I forgot to add important details. I also had lipo with Dr. Sam. I am a thin person with not a great deal of adipose however I have a boyish shape without much of a waist, kind of straight up and down and wondered if Dr. Sam might be able to give me more shape at the waist. I was happy not have it if he thought he couldn't help. Dr. Sam said he could make a difference to my waist and so I had that procedure as well. I am very happy to report that I do see a difference to my waist and look forward to the final result. Overall there was hardly any pain with any of the procedure's I had. Just incredible really. I have had a few plastic procedure's in my life and I have never experienced anything like this easy recovery. Almost no pain, yes discomfort but mild. Hardly any bruising or swelling. Also the scars are just amazing. I knew I would have visable scars along the posterior neck line because that would be unavoidable due to what needed to be done. I was prepared to have scars to improve what I didn't like. To be honest I can't believe how great the scars are. I am now one month post op and Dr. Sam's scars are better now than the other scars were from the previous surgery at 12 months post op. My G.P couldn't believe how great the scars are. Just can't fault this experience or this Doctor.
