In March this year, I decided, after years of deliberation, to finally undergo the rhinoplasty I’ve always wanted. Initially this seemed to be quite a daunting experience. Not only would this be a painful process, but the procedure also wasn’t cheap, and the medical wouldn’t pay for it. This meant that I had to charge this to my credit card, or get a loan from the bank. But this didn’t stop me; this was something I really wanted.With the surgeon’s consultation I was given a pamphlet from First Health Finance, and that is where everything changed. I immediately gave them a call to find out how they can help me pay for my surgery. With extreme professionalism and friendliness, the consultant explained everything. I received the application forms via email, completed them, and faxed them back with all the other required documentation. Before I knew it, my finance was approved! They would pay the surgeon directly for the entire cost of the procedure, so that I didn’t have to worry or stress about payments and accounts while recovering from my cosmetic surgery. It was as if a great weight was lifted from my shoulders.I could now focus on my surgery. Although I was very nervous the morning of the surgery (I think it was nerves mixed with a lot of excitement), I was relaxed by the warmth and friendliness of the Rosebank Clinic staff. Being rolled into theatre, I wondered what levels of pain I would experience when I wake up. Images of Dr. 90210 rhinoplasty episodes flashed through my mind. Then I remembered my surgeon, Dr. Saul Braun, guaranteeing that I will wake up with little to no pain, and I (somewhat sceptically) trusted him on that. My mind racing, I closed my eyes counting the microseconds.Waking up about an hour later, I was amazed to find that the pain wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I was expecting the agony you would associate with having your nose blown off by a fire cracker, but instead it was more like a bad case of sinusitis. What a relief! The worst was over.
I made a full recovery from the bruising and swelling in ten short days. I bet my recovery would have been much longer if I had to worry about loans and hospital bills! The efficient, professional, and super friendly service I received from FHF made all the difference!
A few weeks ago the reality dawned on me that I actually did it! It is over now! FHF made my surgery possible and financially painless.
