I have just executed the first operation of lift eyebrows with your method (Serdev suture). The work was more difficult than I calculated. Also, it was very difficult for me to equilibrate 2 eyebrows. I will hammer away utilizing your method for my job in future and I hope that the follow-up cases will be performed more easily.

"It has been a real pleasure to visit my friend Nikolay Serdev in Sofia and to observe his work during two days. His surgery is up to date and he has "golden hands". I am extremely happy as I got many tricks and important details on techniques. I will use them as soon as I am in Paris as I saw also the results obtained. Two days with Nikolay are equivalent to a week elsewhere. I have only good souvenirs in Sofia. With all my admirations

"Aesthetic Cosmetic Surgery in Sofia" Program

Dear Sirs,

This year i was to plan a trip to Sofia to visit my wife's relatives, and as an old visitor in 1980, i was afraid to be bored for a whole week. With this instinct, while searching the web, i met Dr. Serdev's Aesthetic Surgery Weeks in Sofia and planned my visit so to coincide with the program. My aim was to learn Sofia well and spent some time with a colleague, but things did not go like i thought. From the first time i entered his clinic a wave of frank hospitality aroused from him and her lovely and professional staff. After i entered the operating room and begin to watch him i told to myself ''Cancel your plans to see Sofia and spend your whole time here''. Dr.Serdev was doing things that are really interesting for me: ultrasonic liposuction-which was popularised and then left by many in my country-was like playing a viola in his hands, temporal SMAS lift-his technique-although at the first glance i considered as not much effective - i performed with a little modification after i returned to my country and witnessed that it really works and so easy! After 3 whole days i was very happy and satisfied with the course and with the pleasure of meeting a distinguished personality and surgeon in my neighbour country.

Dr. Serdev is very understanding and considerate man. He is different. His surgical technique is amazing and wonderful. I hope to see Dr. Serdev in a near future.

Thank you so much Dr. Serdev

From Pations

Hi Nikolay,

I have waited all summer, impatiently to have your skilled hands and great art help me improve my life and the time is almost here. I am so very excited and nervous at the same time. I have all arrangements made and I will be in your office on the 23rd at 12:00hr. Thank you so very much. If there is anything I can do for you please let me know. Is there something I could bring from the USA that you may want?

Your friend

Sir,

I am living in Ireland and I am 23 yrs old. I want to know the risk in cheek cosmetic surgery and also expences of that surgery. I want to personaly visit to you so could you please send me your clinic or hospital address so I can reach your clinic. Please give me also details how many surgeries you can do and please tell me the risk that has this type of surgery.

S.

Hello, I'm am a patient and would like to know what DR's in my country(United States) that perform the temporal and lower smas lift. I live in PA. but I can travel within a 500-600 mile range.

Thank you,

J.

Dr Serdev

In regard to your behind the ear incision technique: I did however see a surgeon in England on Saturday to help with my basic understanding and expectations of various procedures offered to be able to communicate with you on a more professional basis. For reference after the consultation the surgeon thought that I would benefit from a Temporal minimal incision SMAS lift, Cheekbone/cheek augmentation, Rhinoplasty, Blepharoplasty (upper), Chin augmentation or Liposculpture (under the chin/jaw). The above combination may not be what you or we decide. You're the surgeon, and like I mentioned before you seem so much more advanced in your work than England and the various web sites I have visited. I'm really looking forward to meeting you and would appreciate a reply to this e-mail as I have now made and paid all the necessary reservations and deposits for my visit.

Thank you

Subject: Face-lifts

Thank you very much for your reply to my e-mail. My friend and I are very interested in your work and wonder if you have a representative in the UK who could help with packages including accommodation etc. and who could give us more direct information? We have several interested friends who would also like more information.

Thank you

Dr. Serdev,

I am a 48-year-old male with a very low hyoid bone. I have lost my submental angle and basically have lost all contour to my neck. I was a high level American football player and have always had a very strong appearing neck but now my sternocleidomastoid muscle is not even visible. I weigh 80 kg and am 178 centimeters tall, about eight years ago, I weighed 86 kg and developed a "double chin". After I lost the weight I was still left with the fullness below my mandible. A doctor has suggested liposuction, a platysmaplasty through a submental incision and a cervical suture through a small incision behind each ear the using Gore-Tex to pull the entire platysma up creating a more acute submental angle. I would love to have you perform the surgery, but unfortunately I cannot go to Bulgaria. Do you ever come to the United States to perform surgery here? If not, to you know of any surgeons who have learned your technique and practice here in the United States? I greatly appreciate your response to my questions regarding a necklift. I am an orthopedic surgeon and understand how busy you must be, so to receive such a prompt response really seems remarkable to me.

Sincerely,

T. H.

Dear Dr. Serdev,

I am a 58-year old male. Over NINE months ago, on June 1, 2001, I had an "open" (coronal) browlift along with an upper and lower blepharoplasty. The horizontal incision of the browlift was made just at my hairline (see attached pre-op picture). I had the open procedure instead of the endoscopic procedure because of my high forehead and degree of brow ptosis. In addition, the "central bellies" of the corrugator muscles were removed as part of this procedure. The entire top half of my head still feels as if a very tight skullcap has been placed on it. It is as tight as a drum. I am also suffering from a lot of pressure, numbness, and "weird" sensations. I think the pressure is coming from the tightness. How long does it take for the tightness and pressure to diminish? the numbness? the weird sensations? It is very debilitating. Is this normal so long after this procedure or has there been major nerve damage? I have lost no facial-muscle function at all. I can frown, grimace, smile, etc. My incisions are healing just fine. I can barely see them anymore but I'm very worried about how I am feeling. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Regards,
Doug Harrington

Dear Dr. Nikolay Serdev,

thank you for directing me to your site. It is very interesting indeed.
As promised, I am sending you some pictures of myself. My main problem is my profile. I would like my nose to be less prominent. I would be greatful if
you could suggest what I need to have done and the price involved in this procedure.

Thank you very much,

C. P.
