I am italian and here surgery is very expensive i am still a student so i could not afford it and could not borrow money from my parenrs since they did not agree (they always did even for jaw surgery). I had to look for cheap surgery abroad and found formé clinique in Prague.
I planned the flight and 3 days resort, 2 in hotel and 1 in clinique. The day after surgery i would have left. They adviced me to remain one day more but there was no direct flight so i had no chance.
Clinique gave me a good impression, rather good looking, they started by asking me lots of questions and doing lots of analysis (blood urine and general). Being generally fit and healthy i had no problem.
In the afternoon i ahd surgery; i woke up in the evening with no pain at all, i had a good dinner in my room, then slept. The day after breakfast, lunch then i went to airport with a taxi paid by them and thats all.
So far everything seems fine. I feel one side bugger than the other but i think it is normal. Swelling is slowly decreasing. I still must pay attention when i move cause i feel the implant on right side (the bigger one) somehow moving when i do some hard movement. Unfortunately surgeon decided not to screw them for some reason (he did not tell exactely even if asked). I was a bit disappointed by this since i would feel more confortable on the idea that implant is secured and cannot move at all no matter what.
Anyway i had a little problem since i had cold abd fever some days after i went back to italy because i was worried for a possible infection. I started a new cycle of antibiotics to be sure and all ended fine.
Actually i see myself better even if i dont like the fact that one side is bigger, but i hope and trust that it will be fixed in some weeks. I do not feel an external body in me with exception of some moments when blood rush in my cheeks for different reasons and i feel blood pulsing around the implant.
Another disappointment was the assistence after surgery, which was very limited, and when i was worried about a possible infection (i had many symptoms) Jena the customer service chief simply said to go back to my maxillofacial surgeon. They were a bit simplistic and i felt ignored. After 2 weeks they started to ignore to reply my questions, or they do it many days after. Anyway if all ends well who cares? I have saved a lot of money and i cannot desire the best post operation assistence, even because i am in a different nation now.
I only hope everything ends well i can go back to do sport, swelling goes away and cheeks are good and simmetrical; I would have liked the defined cheeks of Jhonny Depp but I think they will be smaller. He used malar implant in medpor size small. Still an improvement though and worth it if everything ends well.
