Talk to us
At the Swan Clinic, we pride ourselves on being kind and courteous to our patients. When you call us, you will be greeted by the friendly voices of Annie and Belinda who are ready to answer your questions. If the matter is urgent, you have the option of sending a photo via email or SMS so that we can ascertain how quickly you need to be seen. Early treatment of urgent matters ensures you have optimum outcomes.
You will be given an appointment and we will endeavour to run on time for each and every one of your appointments. We understand that your time is precious.
A standard appointment is 45 minutes long. The cost of a first consultation is $220 (Medical) or $250 (Cosmetic), for which you may be able to receive $72 back from Medicare. During this first consultation, Dr Hadi will obtain a thorough history and examination. Your issues and needs will be discussed. A presentation specific to your needs will be shown.
3D camera photos and formal photos will be taken as appropriate and specific options are discussed tailored to your needs. Dr Hadi likes to offer surgery that focuses on the “natural” look. This means planning incisions that are hidden and choosing techniques that aim for the “no touch” look.
If you are here to see Dr Hadi about surgery, all options will be discussed. An honest and frank discussion will be undertaken including all options, expected and possible outcomes. The key to successful surgery is accurate patient assessment, careful procedure selection tailored to the patient’s anatomy and physiology, and an honest and realistic expectation of what can be achieved.
Patients are then given a simple, easy to understand quote with no hidden costs within a few hours of the first consultation.
You are then invited to come back for a second consult at no extra cost. This second visit is to again discuss the procedure and to ensure that all questions are answered.
Dr Hadi believes that patients should take the time to consider all options before deciding to proceed to surgery. All questions and queries are welcome.
We will endeavour to find the surgery date that suits you. Patient comfort is paramount and if possible, patients are given the option of having simple surgery under local anaesthetic in the rooms, or under general anaesthetic or sedation in a major hospital. Dr Hadi believes that patients should be given choices so that they can decide what’s best for them.
A careful and meticulous approach to surgery is paramount to outcome. A gentle surgical approach focused on accuracy and minimal tissue damage ensures the fastest possible recovery from surgery.
Dr Hadi believes that at each stage patients should be comfortable. Reducing pain and swelling is the key. Pain is something which should be avoided and minimised at each step. This includes pre-operatively, intraoperatively and post-operatively. This is done through local anaesthetic blocks, analgesia combined with a gentle surgical technique that minimises bruising. Compressive garments and bandaging post operatively can also help reduce any pain from swelling.
Post operative care
After surgery, Dr Hadi believes in frequent post-operative review to ensure optimal healing and outcomes occur. Whether it’s frequent visits while you are in the hospital and then frequent visits in the clinic at no extra charge.
You will be given Dr Hadi’s number post operatively so that you can contact her at any time for your piece of mind.
We look forward to meeting you and helping you in your journey.
