A very tough procedure both mentally and physically. This is not an easy thing to go through and I have had several other cosmetic surgeries in the past. The result was worth it, but you need to be very prepared mentally to take this on. The pain is manageable, but there are aspects that are challenging and painful. The cleaning that has to be done several times a day was the most painful part for me. I took two weeks off work and three would have been better. I felt OK on week 2 but I was still a little uncomfortable being out in public even with the makeup.
In the end I would do this again as the result is great.
