INTRODUCTION:

UBUHLE - BONTLE means "beautiful beautiful" in the African languages.  Rand Coach Tours specializes in providing the international client   coming to South Africa for surgery,   a unique professional service.  Not only is South Africa a magnificent country for patients and their families to explore on holiday, but it is also a country that offers highly advanced medical services at a fraction of the cost in overseas hospitals.  The waiting period for acceptance for an operation for cataract and laser eye treatments and joint replacement is also considerably less than that overseas. Rand Coach has formed a partnership agreement with some of the countries most highly skilled,  reputable surgeons and hospitals.  Together we are dedicated to providing for the clients every need, whether you desire to have the stunning good looks you have always dreamed of, want to see the beauty of nature around you clearly again, or want to be able to go on long walks and do the sports again you've always loved so much ...

INFORMATIVE FACTS BEFORE 
UNDERGOING A FACELIFT.

  • Patients must stop smoking at least two weeks before and after surgery as smoking inhibits blood flow to the skin. Smoking can interfere with the healing process therefore possibly resulting in greater scarring or a longer healing process. 
  • Someone with short hair may want to grow their hair before having a facelift operation as with shorter hair, scarring is visible. 
  • Individuals wearing contact lenses may need to wear glasses for a few days or weeks, especially if the patient is receiving additional procedures around the eyes. Some procedures, such as eyelid surgery can cause irritation to the eyes making contact lenses extremely uncomfortable to wear.


  • PRE OR POST OPERATIVE HOLIDAY
