Well second time for me but again very nervous , I had my last one in Bangkok but this time going to vietnam , am looking forward to it but scared I am thinking of having resurface done at the same time has anyone had this done in Vietnam and how long recovery? I am 65 years old and I had my first facelift in Bangkok I was pleased with the result but time has come for second cannot look in mirror without seeing my mother whom I loved dearly but don't want to look like her in our day an age no need to our minds stay your but our faces get old and I hate this

Second time around

Well managed to put photo in as you can all see it's time!!! Getting done sept 21st in Vietnam and I am looking forward also thinking of laser give me your thoughts girls I am 65

On my way

Well today I leave for vietnam and booked to meet my doctor on Friday, and booked for surgery on Monday morning, getting a bit nervous but will be right on the day.

Meet surgeon

Well I meet with the surgeon today and he did not recommend peel with lift, so I have put this on hold for a later date, also my surgery is now Tuesday afternoon
I did feel comfortable with him and the hospital was very nice so now the waiting game till Tuesday

All done

Well all over with I am at the stage where you say why but I know this will pass very swollen and a bit sore the photo is the day after can only get better from here

Day 3

This is day 3 have gone back to hotel this is much better I can now ice my face to try and get swelling down, hope I won't look like this for the rest of my life

Day 5

Well feeling much better over the why did I do it and the down feeling that goes with it now feeling good thanks for all the support you have all given me good that people in the same boat can talk as you would think it was just you and by reading messages you know that the down feelings will pass which has so again thank you all

The doctor

I forgot to say that I did not get the surgeon I thought I was having as he had left the FV hospital the doctor I had was Dr Alain Michel he is a French man and I am pleased with the outcome

Day 7

I was glad to be able to wash my hair today as when they washed it they used betadine and no condition so feels good again I have added photo of where the stitches were it is healing fine still swollen but getting shape back my doctor told me to massarge and showed me how all good

Day 11

Well this is me when I wake up so don't be to disappointed , as you can see healing nicely, left side coming down , had a nice massarge last night felt great so all good , I will send photo next week with hair and makeup so you and I will get full effect , but I am happy with it all , and only to think 6 days ago I was asking WHY lol

Home sweet home

Well home now and all back to normal, I have posted photo this is 15 days out and I am as happy as punch.
