Overall, I dont feel as though I look my age, but I'm unhappy with the lines / creases by the sides of my nose and lips. I feel as though the skin on my face is loose and I'm hoping to have a 'taut' face without it looking like I'm standing in a wind tunnel. Mr Guest assures me I will look 'refreshed' rather than operated on and after reading many of the ladies and gents who have had the procedure I'm sure thats absolutely true.
I have started all the preparation treatments required for the dermaroller and I've purchased arnica tablets to start taking next week and arnica cream for post op.
I was apprehensive to look in the mirror after my op because my face felt like it was on fire and quite puffy to the touch. I decided to wait till this morning and had a shower and washed my hair before looking and was very happy with my reflection.
I had the dermaroler on face & decolletage and it was this that made my face look very sunburnt ( ideal weather for it too ) my jaw line is smoother in appearance and the lines that ran from my lips towards my jaw have completely gone. I do still have lines from my nose to mouth, but much shallower than before. This helps to look more 'natural' as a woman close approaching 50, should have a line or two somewhere!!!
I have to agree with all the posts prior to mine that Mr Guest and his whole team made me feel at home. If I had to give any negative feedback, it would only be to say one time when I called the nurse station it took over 10 mins to get to me and I'd text my husband to ask him to phone the hospital cause no-one was coming to my aid. However, there didn't seem to be many nurses on and I think the staff there were ran ragged - but this did not impact on their mood or how they dealt with me - nothing was too much trouble
I have only needed paracetomol for the discomfort. On returning home, I've put some icepacks on my face to help with the swelling. I'm booked in to see Mr Guest this Wednesday to have the first lot of stiches out. I am happy to answer any questions any one has and will update my post after Wednesday.
Mr Guest is very happy with the recovery and didn't feel there was much swelling.
I'll have the remainder of my stitches out at my G.P's on Wednesday and will see for myself how the scarring looks. It's been one week since my op and still have alot of bruising but it is fading my the day.
I have been surprised at how tired I've felt over the last week and most day's have napped for an hour or so in the afternoon. Hope the following week will not be as tiring as I'll be returning to work soon.
I remain very happy with post op face.
