Why can’t you simply book on your own?

You really undergo a facelift to look younger and surgery comes with its attendant risks. As such how can you book on your own? You don’t have any experience of the doctors or clinics that are on the site, you may not know the prices till you contact them and share your details and you have no means of verifying any information given to you. Establishing qualifications is one thing, but what about Board certification or professional  memberships - it is a bit of a minefield trying to work out wha's what!

That is because we are concerned about your safety so we carry out a thorough check on the medical qualifications and credentials of the doctors to make sure they can carry out the surgery.

A facelift can take between an hour and a half and four hours. This really depends on how many procedures you are getting done and what kind of procedures. Facelifts can be of different kinds and can be done by a traditional method, endoscopic method and can include liposuction and contouring as well. If you have a forehead lift done at the same time or any other facial procedure, it will take longer.

You will have bandages on your face and have swelling and bruising. After extensive surgery it is a good idea to stay for a night or two at the hospital for better monitoring and care, particularly since you are away from home. That is why it is better to get your holiday in before the surgery so that you can simply relax and recuperate till it is time to go home. However, you will be able to indulge in light activities and be mobile a day or two after the surgery.
