Nicola's Story Age 61, Hampshire

My results are amazing, I look so much fresher, youthful and brighter! My new face has completely changed my persona as well, I am a lot more confident and happier in myself!

What motivated you to consider Concept™ Facelift?

I had been thinking about having a facelift for ages, however, I felt slightly vain considering it. I certainly did not want to go under general anaesthetic due to the health risks, especially for a cosmetic purpose. I felt I was looking very worn and tired, which completely knocked my confidence when socialising, having pictures taken etc. I have always been a person who has been a support and rock to everyone else, a constant worrier my husband would say. My husband and children really encouraged me to do something for myself for once. They knew how much this meant and how happy it would make me.

Why did you choose Bella Vou?

As well as my family, I would have the support from the Bella Vou team and the kindest, genuine support from Mr Amir Nakhdjevani. I was confident he could help me and give me the result I was looking for. I knew I was in the most capable hands and the team would take the best care of me, ensuring my procedure went smoothly.

What was your experience, in surgery?

I am such a nervous person and was absolutely terrified about the procedure, to the point I did debate not going ahead with it. However, the Bella Vou staff were amazing to say the least, providing me with food and drinks before going into theatre. Stevie, the patient co-ordinator, held my hand at the beginning of the procedure which was so comforting and made me feel very calm. 20 minutes into the procedure my heart had stopped racing, my nervousness had disappeared and I was no longer anxious. If it wasn’t for Amir and his amazing team I probably would have walked out the door and then regretted it for a lifetime.

Has it been worth it?

Unfortunately, I am very prone to bruising and knew I would end up suffering more than most patients. I was fairly bruised and swollen, however, the team reassured me that all my symptoms were normal. I came back for my follow up appointments and received several phone calls checking on me, which made me feel important and that they genuinely cared.
