Patient story: Face lift

I had been thinking about having a face lift for a few years but was quite apprehensive about making the next step. It wasn’t until my daughter announced that she was getting married that I finally decided to make the decision and book a consultation.

I am very happy with the results! I especially like that I still look just like myself, only a younger me

I did some initial research on the internet; however I had previously had a breast reconstruction with Mr Azhar Iqbal, Consultant Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgeon, and as he had done such a fantastic job I decided to make an appointment to see him at Spire Cheshire Hospital.

At the consultation Mr Iqbal made me feel at ease and explained everything clearly, he even showed me some ‘before and after’ pictures so I could see the difference the procedure would make. We discussed the various options and to achieve the more ‘natural’ look that I wanted I decided to have a face and neck lift and also an upper and lower blepharoplasty (upper and lower eyelid surgery)

Mr Iqbal was very professional and I left the hospital feeling better and much more confident about the decision I was making. I was not put under any pressure by Mr Iqbal and I felt he really had my interests at heart.

The operation went really well and I stayed at the hospital for two nights. All the nursing staff were excellent and made sure I was comfortable and well looked after.

I am very happy with the results! I especially like that I still look just like myself, only a younger me, and the results look natural. I have had so many positive comments from relatives and friends, who still have not guessed, they just mention that I look really good.

Mr Iqbal has given me a new lease of life and I can’t thank him enough. I would recommend Mr Iqbal and Spire Cheshire Hospital to anybody who may be considering a similar procedure, they were all very professional and I was really well looked after.
