Growing up, my mom was a natural beauty who doesn’t need makeup to look good. I mean, she don’t put makeup at all, even to a wedding dinner. But age is really catching up and as much as we’ll like to blame it on gravity, her skin has been sagging quite a bit and it’s showing.
God answered our prayers because my mom was given this chance to look 10 years younger with Dr Gerard Ee from The Clifford Aesthetics.
Dr Gerard Ee is a member of the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh) and has a special interest in minimally invasive surgery. His expertise in this field made together with so the many positive reviews and his impeccable experience made it our greatest honor to work with him.
Getting numbing cream applied before we inject some anaesthetic inside.
One of the most commonly asked question would be:
“DOES IT HURT?!”
Based on my mom’s reviews, the most “painful” part would be getting the anaesthetic injections, not even the procedure itself. But she rated the pain 3/10, slightly more than an ant bite.
Let the threadlift begin
Some background on what Threadlift is – “it is the insertion of a dissolvable thread that focuses on tightening the surrounding tissues in your face and increase blood supply which in turn can lead to healthier, firmer skin. I would consider it a mildly invasive aesthetic procedure.”
Despite the numbing cream and anaesthetic jabs, my mom was still able to feel Dr Gerard Ee pulling the threads in her face however, there wasn’t any pain at all.
Because my mom’s laughline was really deep, threadlift was not enough, thus Dr Gerard Ee suggested pumping in a little bit of filler to fill the line.
What is filler?
“Injectable filler is a soft tissue filler injected into the skin to help fill in facial wrinkles, restoring a smoother appearance. Most of these wrinkle fillers are temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body. Some people may need more than one injection to achieve the wrinkle-smoothing effect.”
The whole process only took 15 minutes, however if you are thinking of getting it done during lunch time, since The Clifford Aesthetics is located at the heart of CBD, making it extremely convenient to head down for a quick pick me up, do factor in an additional 40 minutes for the numbing cream to set in.
For the final reveal
The difference was so huge that until today, my mom is still in disbelief that she was given this opportunity. Hahaha so cute right.
Personally, if you’re someone whose skeptical about getting minor aesthetic enhancement because you label it as being “fake” or “unnatural”, trust me, my mindset was similar to yours too. But over the years, I’ve learnt that being born in an era where we’re given a second, third, fourth etc chance to reborn and look younger, we should really count our blessings.
Back then, if you told Audrey Hepburn that she can maintain her looks even at 55 years old, she would tell you to stop lying. hahaha
Then, it dawned on me that I should really cherish this luxury and not be so opinionated against Aesthetic procedures, thus I did my double eyelids 2 years ago too.
Nonetheless, if you’re thinking of getting a face lift whether is it for yourself, your mom or your dad, I’ll definitely recommend The Clifford Aesthetics, https://cliffordclinic.com/face/silhouette/
There’s a price to pay for everything and if it’s a price that can boost your confidence and self esteem, I believe it’s definitely something worth spending on.
We don’t get to live life twice, why not live it beautifully.
