Very excited to go undergo this procedure tomorrow...
Very excited to go undergo this procedure tomorrow 16/06/2014. I had a thread lift done 6 years and upper blepharoplasty 3 years ago. I have had regular botox injections for 10 years and started with fillers about 3 years ago. Very excited to see the result as I have been following other blogs on this site and the results are amazing. I will post photos in about a month starting with before surgery, during post-op recovery and at 4 weeks, 8 weeks and 12 weeks.
S Lift (lower face mini lift) & Vaser to Lower ChIn & Jowls
The full procedures listed above in my post of 08th June 2014 did not all take place in one surgery as planned due to the discovery that I suffer from sleep apnea. My CS performed the S Lift/Mini Face Lift and did the Vaser to Lower Chin & Jowls. My CS Is happy to proceed with the rest of the procedures at a later date now that we know what we are dealing with. Apparently I gave them all quite a scare - if you are a heavy snorer PLEASE advise your PS. I went under twilight sedation and also due to wearing acrylic nails my oxygen read out was incorrect as the little peg that reads your oxygen levels was sending insufficient data - most PS would prefer us girls not to have our nails on during surgery as it can give false readings. I am 5 days post op - sorry I got the date wrong above - my op was 09th June 2014 and thrilled so far with the emerging results. I have 100% confidence in my CS and at no time was I in serious trouble - at no stage did my heart stop or slow - my vitals were all perfect - I just forgot to breathe - Surgery Is not to be taken lightly and I am also giving up smoking for good - not just for pre op and post op! IF YOU SMOKE - GIVE UP NOW!! Had my stitches removed today and now in post op surgical mask for the next 7 days to be worn every night and as much as possible during the day. I am returning to work on Tuesday 17th June 2014. I will post photos in the next week. Will book lower blepharoplasty, upper brow lift and fat transfer to face end August.
Very happy with progress. Still sleeping in facial support each night and wearing throughout day as much as possible. Well worth the cost.
