Monday 29th was spent having pre-op checks and getting to know Radka, Aneta and Marketa and a consultation with our plastic surgeon Helena Singerova . Our surgery on Tuesday 30th of October was in the morning , John was having a Face and Neck lift plus lower eye lids lift, I was having a breast reduction.
We arrived at the Asklepion clinic (just around the corner), the staff who looked after us were lovely and again we met Helena (the surgeon) before our respective surgery. If you have any doubts or worries regarding post-op pain please be assured there is no pain just discomfort.
Some tips: Before surgery make some your cupboards and fridge is well stocked with easy to prepare healthy food – If you have time beforehand make a pot of nutritious soup. Although I said you are not in any pain the trauma of the operation really takes it out of you and you tine very quickly so anything quick, easy and healthy to eat is best. There are plenty of shops locally so you do not have to travel for provisions, once you feel better there are plenty of restaurants to visit locally. Make the most of your stay and listen to the advice given also do as you are told and your recovery will be quicker. I would not hesitate to recommend a friend for any type of operation. The care and attention you receive is far superior than in UK! Good luck to you, I´m sure all will go well.
