I was operated on first thing in the morning, and stayed over night in a hotel across the road as they take your bandages off the next day . I thought this was going to be a painful experience but can honestly say i havn't taken anything stronger then panadol forte since i woke up from surgery.
The first few days - a week your forehead feeels REALLY tight , just an unusual feeling not painful. The staples were taken out 7 days later, and the stitches 2 days after that.
I am now 2 weeks out of surgery and i can hardly see any evidence of the surgery at all. The whole top of my head is still quite numb ( which is normal ) but i am able to wear my hair up, with just atouch of makeup along my hairline to hide the minimal redness that i still have.
This is hands down the best thing i have ever done for myself, and would recommend it to anyone else who is looking at getting it done. After a 2 hour surgery, i gained 1000x times more confidence in myself.
Thankyou Dr Nettle and your amazing team !
