Welcome to Specialist Plastic Surgeon, Dr Mark Hanikeri’s portfolio.

Dr Mark Hanikeri has over 15 years’ experience working from Subiaco as a specialist in cosmetic surgery of the body, breast and face.  The “Specialist Plastic Surgeon” title can only be used by surgeons in the recognised specialty of plastic surgery.

Dr Hanikeri understands that surgery is about people. The people he treats belong to a community.  They are someone’s mother; father; daughter; son; friend; they are family. Mark is very honest about his patient’s surgery enquiries and their expectations.

I see myself as a breast and facial aesthetic, and reconstructive surgeon.

How to treat Lipoedema

In recent years, there has been a rising awareness of the condition called lipoedema (American spelling Lipoedema). Lipoedema is a common chronic condition occurring in 1 in 11 women where they have significant fat accumulation, particularly around the thighs and legs. What is lipoedema? Although there is not currently a single cause for the condition, it has been found that lipoedema develops after a woman experiences a specific hormonal event. These events include puberty, pregnancy, menopause, or a combination of gynecologic surgeries. It is a condition that is associated with the change in the lymphatic system, which over time causes…
Breast Augmentation

Important information about breast augmentation

Breast augmentation is a procedure where you should achieve good proportion with the hips, the body’s frame. It’s not about size, it’s about appearance. It’s about looking natural.

Dr Hanikeri will talk you through the issues of implant placement (vis in front of the muscle or behind it), as well as types of implants and their respective pros and cons.

Once all that information is presented, it’s about working with you to ascertain the look you are after. And whether or not it’s something Dr Hanikeri can deliver—and which implants would be used to achieve their desired outcome based on your  starting point and frame.

What to consider when thinking about abdominoplasty (aka tummy tuck)

There are three reasons people get abdominoplasty:

  1. Pregnancy
  2. Significant weight loss
  3. Ageing

It should be noted abdominoplasty is not a weight loss solution. And Dr Hanikeri will not perform this procedure on patients over a BMI of 28/29. This is because abdominoplasty is a purely cosmetic procedure—and cannot replace or substitute bariatric surgery.

For post-pregnancy patients, it is recommended that you wait until you’ve finished having kids before undergoing this procedure. Similarly, for post-weight loss patients, it is often recommend that you sustain your new weight for a period before undergoing abdominoplasty.

2 types of upper eyelid surgery patients

One is those who have a condition called dermatochalasis where they’ve got excess upper eyelid skin that does hang down and they get rash in it and it obscures their vision and it doesn’t look very nice. So, there are functional, health and cosmetic benefits to operating on them and they’re the slam dunk ones: it’s easier to get them a rebate. It doesn’t matter what technique you use: you’ll get a nice result and a happy patient.

The second type of patient are the aesthetic patients who don’t have any visual issues, but they’re aware that their eyelids have become saggier and less aesthetic as they’ve aged and a large proportion of them will actually not need an eyelid reduction so much as an eyebrow elevation. And the reason their eyelids look heavy is not because the skin is stretched out, because the eyebrows have dropped.

Breast lift provides a long term results many patients are happy with

In the last 5 years, relatively few patients want just a breast lift. But breast lift on its own makes up—maybe—10% of breast aesthetic surgeries. Most patients want a breast lift with augmentation.

Pre-social media women were happy with breast lift on its own because it creates a small, lifted natural look. Now, women know they can get a lift and go bigger. And this is something Dr Hanikeri has noticed happening more over the last 5 years.

The majority of patients who have a breast lift will end up with a long-term result. That’s far better than when they started. Even if it does drop again and the tissues do stretch again, which is inevitable with that particular procedure, they always look better than they do without it. And Dr Hanikeri is yet to have anyone who wasn’t happy long term from the operation.
