Album DescriptionAlthough I looked pretty good at twelve weeks, three years later I still have two horrible bald patches in my sideburn area, I still have the capillary damage on my neck and I still have a pleat of skin in front of my right ear and a pixie ear. The scarring is very visable and I have to wear thick make - up to cover it. I would not now recommend this surgeon or Vip Medicom Prague to anyone.
My jowels have returned, my loose flesh under the chin is starting to show and the scars in my eyelids are still visable and bumpy. I think I got very cheap uncaring surgery and although I looked good for the first 12 weeks, £5,000 is a lot to pay for a short term fix and a lifetime of scarring. Vip Medicom have offered me scar revision but ONLY if I withdraw my negative comments fom the Internet!!!! Says a lot about them?

My Personal Statement:
I had a Endoscopy assisted SMAS lower face and neck lift with upper eyelid bleraphoplasty in March 2009 with Dr Visek of Medicom Vip in Prague Czech Republic.
For a number of years since my menopause I have been loooking increasingly droopy around the jowels and neckline which contributed to a miserable look that people always commented on. I seemed to have to go around wearing a smile just to look normal. I did a great deal of research and finally decided on Dr Visek as the price was competitive for endoscopy methods in Europe and Dr Viseks credentials and results looked very good. My husband was very worried about my visiting Prague alone for this procedure, but he was very busy with work so could not have accompanied me. Most of my friends thought I was mad or did not need a face lift ( in their opinion - as is often the case). However I was determined. Having had a number of operations in the past I was not particularly bothered about the anaesthetic or stay in the clinic. The the whole process was dealt with efficiently and very professionally and the clinic where I stayed was spotless. Many of the staff and medical professionals spoke English so communication was adequate. I felt safe and well cared for.
On arrival back to the U.K I and my husband have been delighted with the results. I now feel that my face reflects the age I feel inside and that gives me a very happy feeling. I love it!
