My mom had this done a few years ago and the results were minimal at best. Not only that, but the description of the procedure she received from the 'sales girl' was less than complete.
You are awake for the whole procedure and the shots they use to numb the face are very painful - I can't imagine being awake while someone is cutting my face open! In my mom’s case, even after the shots, she could still feel it when they began to cut into her causing them to give her even more shots.
After the procedure, all she could do was cry and tell me how much she regretted having it done. Her recovery took several weeks and there was no follow up from the "Doctor".
In the end, she still has numbness and quite visible scaring behind the ears.
Please think long and hard before putting yourself through this procedure.

No post-op follow up. Poor results.
