Facelift - C.2008

6.45 am – V. has just left to go to the clinic to have op. My name is C and I ma here to care for her post op. V. will take up this narrative in her own wads after 3 days have passed as Dr. Cerna has told us that she is advised not to speak that long afterwards, no turn her head and she has to sleep sitting up to allow the drainage. If you knew V., being told not to speak for an Hour would have her in a big biz! She’s first on the table this morning and the op will take about 2 hours or so. The clinic will ring me to let me know how it went. The fridge is stocked wit pro-biotic yoghurts + fruit juice as for the next few days V. will be “liquids only”.

The staff here really are great – I stupidly forgot to bring my tablets and the GP who checked V. even yesterday gave me a prescription for them – cost about 165K.

2 days after op! No pain at all. Not allowed to talk or move head for 3 days. Borrowed a blender from Laderma so drinking lots of smoothies and soup through a straw. Must drink plenty of water – at least 3 litres every day. Bandages changed today.

10 days after op and all the stitches are out. Still some swelling and slight bruising around the neck but nothing that concealer cannot hide. Dr. Cerna very pleased.

Rule 1 – do everything Dr. Cerna tells you to do – keep still, don’t talk and move your head whilst you are healing.
Rule 2 – drink lots of water and smoothies.
Rule 3 – use the ice packs!

Have to email Dr. Cerna photos in 3-4 months when the full effect will be apparent.

They really offer the best of care here – ENJOY!
