I was feeling depressed about the way I looked....

I was feeling depressed about the way I looked. For many years, I held my age very well but in the past 24 months noticed that I was aging much faster. I couldn't bear to look at myself in the mirror and even going to the hairdresses and being forced to sit in front of a mirror became unbearable. My partner is an extremely supportive man and hated seeing me so down in the dumps, so as a very extravagant Christmas present, booked in and paid for my "overhaul" procedure. I now feel a million dollars. I have dropped at least 15 years in my age; everyone tells me I look amazing - almost like a model which (at 47) is a huge compliment. I feel confident and have a big bounce back into my life. My doctor, Dr. Warwick Nettle, was extremely patient and empathetic with me. He told me very plainly what he recommended for a best result and I am absolutely delighted, His team at Silkwood are just beautiful - each visit they made me feel like I was the only patient they had. They were caring, considerate and were willing to give me a hug after surgery when I was feel bruised and battered. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Nettle - my partner thinks he is a "Magician" as he has changed my life and my overall perspective forever. I am more than happy for people to contact me direct, should they wish to discuss this further, and I'm also happy to share before and after photos - if that will helped. All I can really add is that if you feel like you need a change, FIND THE MONEY to do it. The only regret you will have is if you do nothing. It is well worth every cent and while I understand I am in a very privileged position to have such a caring, loving partner to support me, I would have found a way to do this on my own anyway.


Here are some photos - the first photo was taken in Feb just before my facelift on 16th February. The after photo was taken last week, almost 4 weeks post my operation. I still have many months of recovery before I see the final finish but I have to say, the difference is amazing and I feel incredible.

48 Year Old, Slim Build, Healthy

I had the surgery just over a year ago and I am amazed and delighted at the results. It took no time at all for the swelling to go down and now, a year into the procedure, I look and feel 10 years younger. People seriously can't believe I turn 48 in 11 days! Dr Warrick Nettle has worked magic. He has the best follow up care possible and has been there for me from the beginning even to now with appointments whenever I have questions. I'm so impressed with his manner that I would not only recommend, but absolutely urge other, to at least meet with him if you have intentions to renew yourself. I write this review not because I've been asked to, but because I am so delighted with the results. I had lots of buising in the first week, but within 3 weeks I was BACK AT WORK and while I was still quite swollen, most people thought I looked amazing .... and this was way before I actually started to heal properly.

Sydney Plastic Surgeon

Best doctor I have ever been to, and not only because he is a plastic surgeon, he just has the nicest best side manner and really understands how nervous these types of procedures are. He gave me his mobile number to contact him pre and post surgery and was available to me any time. I have since been back for check ups more than 8 times and have never been charged as he believes this is past of the entire service. I am so impressed that I am sending my 80 year old mother to meet him - I'm worried about her age but as she is extremely healthy and travels the world regularly, I know she will be fine as long as he is the surgeon. The staff are absolutely delightful, especially the receptionists Kathy and Michelle - they are always interested in my progress and always make me feel very welcome when I visit.
