I hope so too. He's considered the country's finest by numerous sources, so I hope he's in fine form when he operates on me!
The procedure does take a long time. An average of 6 hours and so the surgeon doesn't operate on anybody else on the same day. The reason it takes so long, is that doing a facelift is a real skill.....and every stitch the surgeon takes, should be a work of art.
You can definitely get cheaper face-lifts, especially if you go overseas....but honestly, why not save up a bit more money and wait another couple of years and get somebody really expert to operate on you. It's your face - not something that can be hidden away if anything goes wrong!
