Talk to other patients. Want to talk to other patients who have experienced the same condition or gone through similar surgery?
Saving Faces links new patients with former patients who can provide advice and support.
Often after being diagnosed patients feel very lonely and troubled. While surgeons can provide the medical and technical information on their condition, there is also a need to just talk to someone who understands. Sometimes patients do not want to show their families how concerned they are and then it is good to talk to someone who has gone through the same traumatic experience.
After the operation please consider becoming a member of our support network to help future patients.
