Extremely painful first two days, then inconvenient sleeping on back. I had surgery may 25th and wanted to show what I look like 5 days after surgery. Still very puffy--I will add a final photo in a few weeks. Overall, my expectations were exceeded, and I am finally happy with my profile after more than a decade of feeling self-conscious about it.

I had a large size implant, and neck lipo/lipo-sculpting, etc.


Has your smile been effected by the implant? I'm close to two weeks out and my smile looks different but my lip/chin are still numb so I don't know if that has something to do with it...

My doctor also recommended that I went with a large implant
My smile looked weird for a few weeks. I couldn't smile normally; it looked crooked. I can now smile normally.

I do notice that sometimes there is an odd "stretching" sensation where the implant is. It just tenses up and I notice something foreign is under my skin. This, however, does not bother me at all since the results were so great and it isn't a painful sensation--just a weird one. Other than that, everything is fine. And just so you know, I began sleeping on my stomach about 7 weeks after the surgery and it didn't move.

Ultimately, this implant changed my life. I have been motivated to get in shape and dress nicer. So far, I lost about 52 pounds of body fat, gained over 20 pounds of muscle, and have been more comfortable wearing nice clothes. It truly helped me gain confidence I never had.


You look great, buddy!

I'm in Bakersfield so your post caught my attention. Just started researching this. I won't need lipo but I'm hoping this procedure will help with my loose neck skin as well as my weak chin. Thanks for your post, I'll look into Dr. Lehocky.
