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 among 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 remains exempt from VAT.
