I’ve always wanted to get a V line surgery, but the smallest possibility of a botched surgery made me refrain from doing it. I have been looking for a clinic that would minimize risks and specialize in face contouring to make my dream true.
I live in the second largest city in Korea, Busan. However, Seoul is considered to be the capital of plastic surgery so I headed there to get a consultation with View Plastic Surgery Clinic in Gangnam. They are famous for no medical accidents for 14 years since establishment and is well known for its face contouring safety and great results.
The clinic itself is huge and modern, and the consultation with the doctor and consultant lady was very informative and smooth. I was impressed by the fact that they listened to my wishes without pushing and imposing me from unnecessary surgery procedures.
Moreover, I got a 3D model of what I would look like after the surgery and the doctor explained how the surgery would be proceeded, about the pre and post operation cautions and care. I then felt that this is the place I needed go for a FC. Safe, professional and providing great post care. I made my decision on doing the surgery the same day I had the consultation!
1 WEEK POST-OP
I was really nervous before the surgery, but the fact that there were professional doctors and anesthesiologist at all times made me feel relieved. After they injected the anesthesia, I felt dizzy, but I felt like the surgery was done really fast. I got care from the night nurse and she was there for me throughout in case I needed anything. The next day I was discharged.
One week after, I was glad it didn’t swell as much as I thought it would. I walked a lot, drank pumpkin juice and got unlimited deswelling treatments whenever I wanted. The post care is organized really well!
2 WEEK POST-OP
I felt the swelling started to go down slowly, so I started to look at the mirror every day, and I in my case, the worst part of swelling passed after 10 days. I still had stitches in my mouth, so I felt like it was swollen inside.
But for the face, I thought it got slimmer than before the surgery, especially after the swelling went down.
I visited the hospital for stitches removal and more deswelling treatment!
3 WEEK POST-OP
I didn’t see any progress on deswelling.
It deswelled quite fast up to this week, but suddenly I stopped seeing progress on the 3rd week.
I still was able to put makeup on and meet up with friends. One thing that was interesting was that I felt the mask I wore for going outside didn’t feel so small anymore. Before surgery, I couldn’t cover my whole face all with the mask, but I didn’t have that problem anymore! The lower part of the face was reduced, and the feeling was overwhelming! The surgery did work!!
I was very excited to see how my face would change when the whole swelling goes down!
ONE MONTH POST-OP
I was able to eat almost everything I wanted except for very hard food. I was able to walk outside without any worries of people noticing that something is wrong!
Due to Acculift, some parts of the chin was hard, and the swelling still remained, but hardly noticeable for people around. My face was getting smaller and I started becoming more confident!
I had some pronunciation problems and an unnatural mouth shape, but my friends told me they were cute haha
Oh! There was a big change in the fourth week and I recovered my normal lip shape back.
Until the third week, it was very unpleasant.
The left side of my lips was very sensitive and the right side was tender!
I know there are people who can’t even feel their face on the 4th week after, but in my case, I didn’t have that problem.
2 MONTH POST-OP
The most exciting thing was in my second month, the speed of recovery increased and my face was getting smaller and smaller every day!
The face line is very smooth, and now I am able to eat all the food I want.
I know some FC patients are still swollen after 2 months, but I was lucky!
I still have parts on my face that are swollen, but overall, I am loving the results already!
I believe I got this fast deswelling effect thanks to View’s deswelling care and the doctor’s professionalism.
