Forehead Lift Done Today - Rome, Italy

Sharing is caring so here's my experience so far...

Sharing is caring so here's my experience so far for those who are considering it.
This morning I went into the medical center for a forhead lift, rhinoplasty and leg liposuction. I'm 36 and I trust my surgeon completely because he was recommended by another doctor friend of mine that is perhaps number one in Italy in his field. Name will follow in follow up if he gives me his permission to put it on the internet. I gave him carte blanche on what to do- he obviously having a trained eye I just cannot expect to have. At first he tried convincing me for something "less invasive", so last June I had tried botox and fillers, but here I am now in bed fully bandaged and happily so. My legs have always been "just a little too feminine" obgliging me to wear skirts (85x63x100cm my sizes) or finding suitable brands for trousers. Sure men often turned but I just felt "wrong" and I would avoid going without skirts/shorts to beaches. Weightloss simply caused my breasts to lose volume and my abdomen to hollow. So now it is getting fixed!
To some lipo facts I'm living right now. Pain from 0(none) to 10(unbearable) I'd say is a 2.
I am in bed still though because of a lot of bleeding. My compression garment (could a torture garment be sold at 170euros!) is 15-20% perhaps stained with blood. A Tim Burton movie. In reality my compression garment (till ankles) is very bearable too. I am wearing a shorter cheap lycra on over it with towel face-clothes between to absord the blood. On Monday (this morning Saturday at 9:30 I had the op, now 11hours have gone by) I'll have control visit and I cannot take garment off at least till then. That really SCARES me! Even to go to the loo the garment is provided with the opposite of a chastity belt! A Tower of London scary item this garment.
I'll write other review for nose and forhead lift. And I'll try to keep this one updated.

Approx40hours from lipo

If yesterday pain was a 2, today it has been at least a 6-7. Even the slightest movement is painful. Bleeding stopped on almost all areas.
The worst for me though is my lack of sleep due to breathing trouble having my nose stuffed after the rhinoplasty and my facial garment for forhead lift itch like crazy in my neck under my chin- size too small although i followed that recommended on the packaging of the garment.
I must ask permission.

So far 100%. A real gentleman that stays very medically conservative, and that is what I like in plastic surgery. I find improvements must NOT shout out loud "Fake!" or "I recognize that nose! It is Dr X's job!". And my surgeon seems to respect original features. It does take an artist to respect the "surroundings".
