Thank you, Dr. Nguyen, March 31, 2010, 5:35 pm
In my first consultation with Dr. Nguyen, he was able to thoroughly explain the different procedures and what he felt would have the best outcome for me. I didn't have to take what he said on faith. He showed me photos and computer models, as well as gave me detailed explanations. Some of what he recommended for me was new, while other approaches have been around for decades. His aim was clearly to use a combination of the best medical science to restore my looks for years to come.
My search was over. A few weeks later, I arrived in the early morning for my surgery. Yes, it seemed like a big operation to me. However, I now knew there would be a big result. What was also nice was how everyone on Dr. Nguyen's team was so supportive. Of course, he and the team did a lot of work that morning but I got to sleep through it.
A few hours later, I was on my way back home. Dr. Nguyen had even provided a nurse to stay with me the rest of the day and that entire night, just to make sure I got the right post-operative care. When I returned the next day, Dr. Nguyen was able to see for himself that everything was doing well. He sent me home to rest and let things heal up more.
Finally, a few days later, he removed the bandages and I got to see for myself. There was still some swelling but already there was a huge difference. I could see I was going to look like myself again. His office staff and assistants, whom I had gotten to know, all came in to congratulate me. It was like a party.
It's been a little over a year since the surgery now. My life has completely changed. I said good-by to my job and hello to college to study along with many young people, who were ages twenty to thirty-five. And I looked like I fit right in; even though, I am 48.
Thank you, Dr. Nguyen!
