Like some that are unhappy with an area/part of their body, too big, too lumpy, too flabby, too small etc, we go on a roller coaster ride of, will I, shall I, no I better not, yes I will, no I won't, I'm scared, no I'll be brave.
Well for me it's a FaceLift i'm having done, those saggy jowls arghhh I have finally booked my surgery in Sydney, I live in Brisbane so it means I will be staying in a hotel for about 12 nights.
I have been thinking about doing this for a couple of years now and in the last 12 months I have been doing loads of research. I was going to Thailand to have it done, then I was going to Mexico, then USA and even thought seriously, very seriously about Malaysia. I had made enquires and was so ready for Thailand it wasn't funny.
I saw a highly qualified Dr up here in Brisbane that was actually recommended to me by a lady that had had a FaceLift so was able to see the results which were excellent but still I kept searching.
My searching led me to Dr Warwick Nettle, I had to wait a full 6 months just to have a consultation with him but that gave me plenty of time to research him. I truly believe that I have chosen the right Dr and even though going oversea's or having the surgery here in my home state would of been cheaper for me I want exceptional results and I know I will get them with Dr Nettle.
Are you scheduled for your procedure next week? Here I am talking about my experience but you are less than a week away from your own. You will have a remarkable outcome … facelifts are far less complicated and less risky than a Thigh Lift. You're adorable already, but the outcome will be really refreshing. You actually look very much like one of my sisters - not my nurse sister, but another sister of mine who lives in British Columbia. Thank you again for helping me get through my PO body blues. :) Keep us posted on your progress.
So excited for you...I too am in the same boat thinking of going for a face lift with rhinoplasty as an add on in Thailand or USA but definitely hoping to find a good doctor closer to home in NSW. Can't wait to see your pictures after your op on the 28th Oct which I am sure will be really good.
Hello Sch53, I am so glad to hear about another Brisbane patient! I saw Dr Nettle today, and am scheduled for December 20 (face life, nose, neck). I will also have to stay in Sydney for 12 days or so. I am now going thru the yes, no, etc. Worried about scarring etc. The cost is rather more than I thought, bu that is not the real issue. I sort of wish it was just over with! I wish you well, and I hope that you will continue to post about your transformation.

Less than 2 weeks to go

Feeling Nervous and Excited about my Face Lift!
You must be excited! Do you have any photos of your face before the jowls happened?
