I will be 64 in February 2020. When I was 20 I had a Rhinoplasty that left me with a turned up nose with a pointed tip and extremely ‘visible’ nostrils. Although it was not a good ‘nose job’, I could almost get away with it when younger but it looked worse as I aged. In mid 2018 and I was finally in a position to think about a Revision Rhinoplasty. Dr Ha’s website photos gained my attention because his patients looked like they were born with their noses. In July 2018 I had the Revision Rhinoplasty and I was so happy when the cast came off – even with the swelling, because I knew my nose suited my face. The ‘before’ photos were very confronting because I saw my ‘turkey neck’ in full colour and on a very big computer screen. I remember saying that I looked ‘so old’. I had put on a lot of weight through stress and was planning on losing it so I figured that I would get my nose fixed and then lose weight before I did something about my turkey neck. In 2019 I lost a lot of the weight and my face looked haggard and long. I had initially thought that my ‘turkey neck’ and jowls could be fixed with liposuction or fillers but after the weight loss my jowls were very prominent. I hated them so much! I could not stand to see my face in side view. I decided that I may as well do it properly and obtain the best outcome. So in August 2019 I booked a consult with Dr Ha. He explained that he would do a ‘deep plane’ facelift. This advanced form of facelift (done by very few surgeons) gives a more natural result and is advanced in the medical field of cosmetic surgery. Dr Ha said that he could improve results by doing a salivary gland reduction. Apparently these glands drop and enlarge with age – who knew! I also asked Dr Ha to do a liplift. The recovery was relatively easy. I spent the first 5 days propped up watching TV but after the drains were removed I was able to have a proper shower and wash my hair. Dr Ha is a brilliant surgeon but I think that the outstanding aspect of his talent is that he has an ‘eye’ for individualising results. He spends as much time in the initial consult with patients as is necessary and as long as it takes to obtain optimal results. Dr Ha is confident in his ability but so approachable and this inspires confidence. Plus he gives all of his patients his phone number and is available 24/7. It has now been just over a month and to say that I am happy is an understatement. I swear Dr Ha took 20 years off my jawline (I asked for 15). I cannot recommend Dr Ha highly enough for noses and faces. He really is a genius.
I had an amazing septoplasty and rhinoplasty experience with Dr Ha. He is attentive and professional. I am extremely happy with the results- I can breathe properly and love the way my new nose looks.
Face and neck lift. Dr Ha. I was impressed from the very first consultation with Dr Ha. He is very professional with a very comforting and reassuring nature. The whole procedure went smoothly and recovery so far has been amazingly quick and I am extremely happy with the results. This procedure has changed my life and I am very thankful that I had such a fantastic surgeon.
I'm so glad I chose Dr Kien Ha to perform my review deep plane facelift and necklift surgery for me, 6 weeks ago. If you choose him, you are in good hands. 18 months prior I had a facelift, and although it addressed the issues somewhat it didn’t address them fully, leaving me with a 50/50 result. Things that still needed to be addressed were wrinkling of the neck, jowling, double chin and it’s unevenness and lopsidedness and generally undefined jaw-line. The neck now looks fantastic, the jowling is gone, I have lovely cheek bones and lovely definition on the front of my face, I have a beautiful jaw line, the double chin is vastly improved still has some swelling and a large part of that area is still hard and solid, so time will tell. I video called a friend yesterday who said I looked like I had lost 10kg, which I haven’t, they just saw my face!! Thank you Dr Ha for the amazing results!
Dr Ha addressed my deviated septum and bulbous cartilage and exceeded my every expectation. Prior to surgery my nose caused breathing difficulties, would click when rubbed and left me with a fear of disjointing as well as did not look straight or attractive, with a large crease running down the centre of my nose. All issues have been corrected and as more time passes since surgery (November 2018) I am even more pleased with the results. Lastly but not at all least, Dr Ha’s level or professionalism cannot be faulted, being a wonderful and skilled surgeon as well as a very friendly and trustworthy person. Thank you Dr Ha :)
After more than four decades of a rhinoplasty that left my nose too short, small and pointed I decided to see if anything could be done. I have to say, I was not hopefull because there wasn't much to work with. I did some research and decided to book a consultation with on Dr Kein Ha. He explained that he could take some of my rib and use it to build up my nose and he showed me computer images of his hoped for results. I felt that any improvement was good and booked in for the revision rhinoplasty for the end of July. As soon as the cast was removed I could see that the improvement was going to be beyond my expectations. Dr Ha saw me regularly for the first month after the operation and he is just such a great person as well as a genius nose artist. I think there are four top revision surgeons in the world of whom I am aware and Dr Ha is up there with them. I am beyond happy with the results. My nose finally suits my face and looks natural (although it looks a bit red because I have been on holidays). Most of the swelling has subsided now. The picture is 10 weeks after Dr Ha worked his magic.
I had Rhinoplasty by an accredited Adelaide plastic surgeon 6 years ago to decrease the width of a slightly bulbous nasal tip. The result of the surgery however was extremely disappointing as I was left with very uneven nostrils (pointing in different directions) and a deformed nasal bridge. The doctor responsible for the surgery advised me the deformities were all in my head and his work (all 45 minutes it took him) was fine. I met with Dr Kein Ha in his North Adelaide office and we discussed my previous surgery and the deformities and breathing issues I had been left with because of my previous botched surgery. Dr Ha examined my nose and gave me a breathing test, which showed I was hardly getting any air through my nose because of the internal damage to my nose. Dr Ha also commented that he was very upset that my nose (both the inside and outside) had been left in such a horrendous condition. I found Dr Ha very empathetic and was immediately put at ease talking to him, something I had not experienced with my previous plastic surgeon. Dr Ha explained that I would need extensive surgery (Septoplasty and Rhinoplasty) to fix not only the outward appearance of my nose, but also, he would need to rebuild the inside of my nose with harvested rib and cartridge. I saw Dr Ha just before my operation and again his friendly, positive and kind manner put me at ease (I was extremely nervous after my first disastrous surgery). The operation took over 5 hours and to say I was a little sore when I woke up is an understatement, but by the next morning I was feeling better. Dr Ha saw me the following morning after the operation and saw me every week for the first 4 weeks to check on the healing of my nose. It’s now 6 weeks post my operation and I saw Dr Ha again a few days ago. We are both very happy with the result of the surgery and it is clear to see from the photos just how much better my nose looks already (first photo is a before and second photo is 2 weeks post my operation with Dr Ha). I am very grateful to have had Dr Ha operate on me and have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for an extremely talented surgeon. I learnt the hard way that there is immeasurable differences in skill between plastic surgeons and to always look for one like Dr Ha who is without doubt the best in his field. Thank you Dr Ha.
