Plastic surgeries are in great demand. But sometimes the result does not turn out the way the patient had planned and the consequences can be devastating. Dr. Ferenc Kovács from Hungary has specialised on helping patients who suffer from cosmetic surgery that has gone wrong. “Many patients who come to me have already had several surgeries and still feel unhappy with the result. Often times they have almost abandoned hope,” Dr. Kovács explains. However, he and his team are able to save the day by eminently improving the patient’s appearance just the way he or she intended. Dr. Kovács also offers traditional aesthetic surgeries such as augmentation mammoplasty and reduction surgery.
While he used to work as an orthopaedic surgeon in the past, Dr. Kovács has been working as a plastic surgeon since 2005, offering traditional aesthetic surgeries such as augmentation mammoplasty, reduction surgery, liposuctions, facelifts as well as tummy, thigh and arm lifts. “What is most important to us is to make each patient content, so we not only ensure an excellent result but we also pay attention that the treatment is as painless as possible,”says Dr. Kovács.“About 90 per cent of our patients come to our practice because we were recommended to them.” Today, Dr. Kovács has patients from Austria, Hungary, and Germany, as well as from Switzerland and England. Lunch break face lifts Minimally invasive procedures are often the method of choice nowadays. For example, thread lift treatments are combined with injecting fat from other parts of your body. “We often choose this kind of treatment for younger patients because it achieves similar skin tightening effects as traditional methods of face lifting without any need for surgical blades,”

Kovács explains. “This ambulant method is also called ‘lunch break face lift’ because it is finished within 20 to 30 minutes and does not leave any external marks such as bruises or swellings.” By injecting fat that contains stem cells into the skin of the cheeks, in wrinkles or the nasolabial folds, Dr. Kovács additionally fills these areas. As a result, the patient’s skin appears more refreshed again. www.drkovacs.at
