56 Yo, Time to Freshen Up and Look How I Feel ....Here I Come! - Thailand

Well, like many on real self, I have been thinking...

Well, like many on real self, I have been thinking about this for many years, and my husband has said.." Just go for it". I have been researching back and forth and finally decided on Thailand. I met with plastic surgeons here in Australia and the cost is just exorbitant, although I wish I could do it here. I started looking at thailand and got recommendations from a ps here in Australia which has helped as well. I am travelling alone which is daunting, but I have told no one. Hubby can't take time off work, so off I go.
Wondering if anyone else has done it alone and how did they cope?
I am going thru a medical travel agency which is based here in Australia, they get great reviews and so far have been brilliant. They provide a personal assistant whilst under their care which appeals to me travelling alone. For the second week post op I will be travelling to a wellness resort to recuperate mind and body.
Wondering if I will want to chicken out?!
Any advice guys?? Will post some before shots closer to surgery date which is april 28.

3weeks and counting

Ok 3'weeks to go! I get such a knot in my stomach when I think about it all! I hope this is normal....will I chicken out? It is all paid for...but....
Surgery now scheduled for may1st due to family medical issues, and using a different surgeon due to date change. I am also happy with the new surgeon and have seen his work. He is also a plastic and reconstructive surgeon.
Any one got any advice on things I should take?
Anyone else got advice on how to tackle the nerves?

All over and extremely happy

Ok so surgery was 11 days ago and I have to admit I was beside myself pre op.. Ready to walk out just because I was on my own. Everything went so smoothly, care was excellent, all antibiotics, creams and ointments included. Couldn't fault the whole process.
I had little bruising and swelling and honestly think I could have returned to work day 10. Brilliant outcome love this doctors work, think it has turned back the clock 10 years at least. Suture lines barely visible now. I am super impressed.
The $9000 USD I spent included all accommodation flights etc for 2 weeks away.
I am not going to post photos online as I want to remain anonymous but happy to share experience via private message.

7 months post & best thing I have done.

Well I never put any pics up as I want to remain anonymous, but I will put a couple of before and afters of the areas I had fixed. I must say that I am feeling so confident and happy now it's fantastic. I no longer look in the mirror and feel sad at what is staring back at me. I don't sit facing away from the light and I don't sit holding my face up!! I would do it all again in a heart beat!
