1. Temporal forehead lift
2. Upper and lower eye lid lift
3. Mid face
4. Neck lift
The surgeries were close to $15,000 USD. My tummy tuck was combined with my facelift and hernia repair.
When Dr. Koelliker combines 2 surgeries he has his equally board certified colleague join him in the operating room to shorten the surgery time for a safer and faster surgery.
IV sedation is used, NOT a general. Tummy tuck was performed under epidural.
MD anesthesiologist attend not an anesthetic nurse as in the US.
I always knew that I would have a facelift one day. I started thinking about it by the time I turned 55.
I am now 57 and have decided it was time to address my tired eyes, neck and sagging jawline. I also thought I should look into a tummy tuck and get my umbilical hernia repaired. I've had the hernia for over 16 years... Not really a big issue but it meant I could never really wear a two piece bathing suit with any kind of confidence.
My research concentrated on the combined procedures of facelift and tummy tuck. I wasn't even sure if this was possible.
This search led me to several excellent reviews for Dr. Koelliker. He is associated with "Facelift Mexico" and the rest is history.
I got in contact with Pat Marino, she helped me through the entire process. I never once felt lost or confused about what needed to be done.
Not only was Dr.Koelliker doing my facelift and tummy tuck, he made arrangements to have a surgeon that specializes in fixing herniated belly buttons in the operating room with him.
My belly button looks absolutely wonderful. I can't even tell you how grateful I am that this has finally been fixed.
I should mention that it was always my goal to go away for these procedures.
I didn't want my husband and children to see me during the most challenging part of recovery. I knew it would be better for everyone if I did this by myself.
