Consider Carefully - Florida

I am 60 years old and looked like I was in my late...

I am 60 years old and looked like I was in my late 40s...but I had an extremely crepe-y neck.so I consulted with what I researched to be the best Dr near my area.. he recommended a chin implant,a neck lift and a mini lower facelift if I was going through all the expense.

The recovery has been very difficult and now I finally have a chin but it is asymmetrical chin (which he claimed was already there)but the bruises were off too right after surgery..He burnt a large hole in my neck and now I have a big scar. Some stitches pulled loose behind my ear and had to be redone (larger scars) and the worse is the lumpy area and discoloration in front of my ears (I am three months out from surgery)I also have a small dark discoloration on the skin (he claims is melanin triggered by surgery)right above the suture area below in the muscle.I also have scars and lumps on my chin I feel like a freak and the neck is already stating to crepe up again..Im not rich...so much pain...its better but only to me...no one has even said I look good...dont do it injectables are the way to go...

Yes things could be worse, that's a great attitude to have,  it sounds like you are feeling a bit better, which I am so glad about. Seeing someone in January should be good. Just try to keep your spirits up, which I know seems impossible sometimes, but there are so many other great things out there for you. Keep me updated.

Hi Sherry,

Having someone to talk to is always good, I'm glad you found someone. Have you considered going to see another doctor to see if they might have some answerer's? Please, please keep me updated.

HI Sherry,

Welcome to the Facelift community and thanks for the review. I can't believe you had to deal with such complications from a Facelift. Have you been back to your doctor, what is he doing to fix it. Please keep us updated. How are you doing today?

Thanks,

-Britt
