Mohali, Oct 8 (UNI) When 62-year old Glenys Owram decided to undergo cosmetic surgery, little did she expect that her dream would take her thousands of miles away to India.
She wanted to look young again as age was taking a toll on her face. She is a beauty expert and hair dresser herself and is running a saloon at Midlands, UK.
" My profession required me to be looking young to stay competitive in business as it is difficult to get more clients if she as a beauty expert herself is looking older", she told mediapersons at the Fortis Hospital here today.
Her search, for cost effective packages and excellent facility, led her to India. The cost of face and neck lift surgery with eyelid surgery is approx 10,000 pounds in UK while it is just 2000 pounds in India.
She decided to get her surgery from Dr K M Kapoor, Senior Consultant and Head, Department of Cosmetic Surgery at the Fortis Hospital, as he had already operated upon many patients from UK successfully.
She reached Mohali on September 28 after a brief vacation in Rajasthan. She underwent all the necessary tests and anesthesia evaluation on the same day and was operated upon the following day.
Her facelift, neck lift and eyelids tightening of both sides were done. Post operatively.
Ms Owram recovered quickly and was on her feet on the very next day. After two days, she was discharged from the hospital and then she went to pay obeisance at the Golden Temple at Amritsar four days after surgery.
She is all praise for Dr Kapoor for his expertise and personal touch in managing cosmetic surgery patients. She also appreciated the nurses as well as the facilities at Fortis Hospital.
Ms Owram said that when she goes back to her saloon in the UK, she would tell her friends and clients about her good experience with Indian healthcare and hospitality.
