I made a reservation for the Next-Day-Surgery programme and went to Belgium.
The reception at the Wellness Clinic was very welcoming. I had to wait a while before it was my turn. I was glad they served coffee. The consultation with the plastic surgeon was very relaxed. The doctor was friendly and very patient. He went through all the pros and cons of a facelift operation. I told him exactly what my expectations were. Together we decided that a MACS facelift would give me the best result.
After the consultation, I immediately confirmed my operation for the next day.
Together with my friend, I stayed the night at the beautiful 5 star Carbon Hotel.
I arrived the next morning at 8 am for surgery. A nurse came to fetch me and walked me to my room. I was very surprised. The room had a bathroom which was amazing: all in marble and granite! I felt like a VIP right away . The nurse gave me a theatre apron, a comfortable bathrobe and slippers. Together we completed a list of medical questions. She took my blood pressure and temperature. Then I was given a suppository.
At 11 am it was my turn. About the operation, I cannot remember a thing. I only came around fully when I was once again in my beautiful room. The plastic surgeon came to see me. The nursing staff was very friendly and helpful.
At 5 pm my friend picked me up and together we returned to the hotel.
The next morning I returned to the Wellness Kliniek for a check-up. The plastic surgeon wrote a letter to my physician to remove the stitches. Most sutures had to be left in place. They automatically dissolved after a few weeks.
Making the decision to have facelift surgery was one of the most difficult decisions I have ever contemplated. It was the best decision I could possibly have made!
The overall appearance of my face is better than I could have ever expected. I look and feel 10 years younger!
Wellness Kliniek Belgium stands for safe surgery. The hospital disposes of cabinets for aesthetic dental treatments, operating theatre rooms equipped with high-tech equipment for surgery, recovery care and private patient rooms.
* Rates are from the best in Europe and are all-care-inclusive, but they do not include any VAT. Since January 1, 2016 the VAT exemption for aesthetic surgery and treatments has changed. As a result of this change, the VAT exemption will be applicable only for treatments that aim at the 'medical care' of patients ( and are as such included in the Belgian INAMI nomenclature). In the absence of such a target, 21 % VAT will be applied. Aesthetic dentistry remain exempt from VAT.
