I am new to this board but wanted to share an amazing change in my life.
Turning 60 is a milestone for anyone and I said if I have a turkey neck, drooping skin, jowls and sagging loose eyelids ,I will have a facelift before I turn 60.
March 14, 2012 I had a mid/lower face and neck lift with upper/lower eyes and fat grafting in the nasal folds and under the face orbital bone with Dr Velasco in Cancun at a private hospital. One month before my 60th Bday.
Now I am not one to jump the gun. I have researched face lifts for years and went to 4 consultations in Alberta Canada. In Canada the cost would have been $25,000.00. I could not afford it being retired. So I did my search and found the International Facilitators in Cancun. I emailed and talked on the phone with people who had surgery with this clinic and their successes.
For the surgery ( all areas listed) all meds, compression garment, Dr appts and transfers including 10 days at a condo in Cancun was $5900.00 USD.
Sheri Burke is the CEO and my assistant through the whole journey.
Since my lift I have had forums ask for my story to be posted and another, a video, of my journey for their huge plastic surgery conference in Las Vegas. My I feel like a little star.
My results are fanatastic. Perhaps 15years younger and no complications. Yes it was a 5hour surgery and healing after. Don't really look in the mirror for a week. Results take 3-12months. Swelling and bruising is different with each person. I took arnica tablets and used the gel which really helped with bruising and swelling.
Now 3 months post op results are still getting better. Swelling is less .
I look how I feel inside . My main reason for writing is to let people know there are safe and professional clinics to go to with experienced Doctors who know the newest techniques with affordable pricing. Not everyone would to travel to Mexico but I felt I did my research and was confident in my choice. So glad I did this.
