Dr. Wong was very professional and once you get to know him he is really nice. Ginny from Beauty Yours looked after me through the whole process and also during my recovery. She was able to calm my nerves by letting me speak to someone who had already had a facelift with Dr. Wong and the results were really impressive. I was very apprehensive about the idea of having a full facelift and brow lift without General Anesthetic but once the procedure was explained I was still nervous but more comfortable. Though you are awake you don’t feel any pain and you have been sedated so fall in and out of sleep. I felt relaxed and once I had spent an hour or so in the recovery ward was able to walk out. Dr. Wong leaves drains with tubes and small containers in overnight and tape above and below your eyes plus a compression bandage around your head. This is quite restricting and it’s sometimes difficult to see but Dr. Wong said the bandages and tapes are to reduce swelling and speed up your recovery. The Drains come out the next day and all the bandages and tapes come off after the second day. At this stage you feel as though you are well on the way to recovery. The next few days I had some swelling but by the 5th day I went out shopping and felt quite good though my eyes were still a bit red. 6 days after surgery your stitches are removed and from then on the scar lines begin to fade. Mine were hardly noticeable by the time I left Malaysia and have now disappeared except for a very faint line along my neck but this is so close to my hair line it can’t be seen. The results of my surgery are wonderful, I couldn’t be more pleased. I would recommend this surgery with Dr. Wong to anyone and also Beauty Yours and especially Ginny. She was with me every day which made the whole experience so much easier and more pleasant.
