The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Part IV What Did the Doctor Say to Moi?

More on my BFF!

BUT

What did the Doctor say to moi?

Part IV

The beginning of week number two has arrived and I was going to take my BFF over to the Doctor's office for her second check up after surgery. I also had called ahead and asked if I could speak with the Doctor for a few minutes about my face after he saw my BFF. The receptionist said, "Oh, yes I'll set it up for you." Isn't it nice when your BFF is personal friends with the Doctor! No waiting! And I might add that he had called us every day in the evening to see how she was doing that first week.

Anyway, we arrive and one of things they do for their patients who have had surgery is let them in through the back door. None of this sitting out in the waiting room with your head covered in bandages while everyone is staring at you!! You then go through a back hallway and are escorted into a private room. I was most impressed!!

So my BFF and I go into our private room together and the nurse appears and unwraps her head. She doesn't seem to be at all concerned and in fact says, "Oh you are starting to heal nicely." I'm still thinking, "Ghee, the woman looks like she has been in a fight and on the losing end but what do I know?" Then the nurse proceeds to take out stitches which thankfully didn't seem to be painful for my friend.

In strides our favorite Doctor and he starts examining his work. "Well, my dear you seem to have a hematoma on this one side so we need to do something about that and on the other side of your face I'm going to give you a shot to fill it out a little more." She also was having a lot of pain in one of her ears and on the top of her head. So he gave her two shots there. Don't ask me what all of these shots were, obviously some were to numb her first and then others were probably cortisone. I just know that she asked the nurse who was holding her hand if she could have some rubber balls to squeeze! Poor baby, this is no fun!! But I'll give her credit, she only made some faces and I could see her squeezing the living daylights out of those balls!

Now it is my turn. I'm sitting in a chair and he sits down on a stool and rolls over to me. He has on the smallest set of glasses that look more like binoculars. "Alexandra, sweetie, you have a lot of sun damage and I think you might be working on some cancer on the one side of your nose. Have you had any bleeding there?" I sat up straighter now because I had some bleeding about three weeks earlier. Not a big deal but enough that it left a spot on my towel. I nodded yes and knew my eyes were getting bigger about then.

"Well, what I would like to do is a CO 2 fracture on your face, hands and décolletage. We'll go after that spot on your nose and all of that sun damage and this will also produce lots of new collagen. What's rushing through my mind now is something my friend said after her treatment, "I've got the skin of a baby's butt now." And then I hear this! "Since you are such a good friend of my friends, I'll be glad to give you my friends, family and physicians' wives discount." VIOLA!!

HOW COULD I REFUSE? Never pay retail if you don't have to!! When the office manager gave me the price, it was literally half of what I would have paid at home. Trust me I knew because so many of the Flaunt Forty (my neighbors) were having treatments. You name it: eyes, tummy tucks, lipo, facelifts! The community was a blaze with cars flying around going to the plastic surgeons.

So I made an appointment for the following week. What did this mean? It meant changing my flight home and staying for another week. My BFF was thrilled that I would be there longer and the husband didn't care. He is one of those relaxed types at home. In the office, not so! Pity those people!! As for Mr. S, he said, "If it something you want to do then stay." He is a Prince!!
