After One Week, Zero Results

I always had firm jowls and a slight double chin that I felt made my neck look shorter. I decided to have the jowls and under chin lipo-sculpted, and had the surgery 8 days ago. Immediately after the surgery (smart lipo) I did not have any bruising and very minimal swelling. Which is great, but I don't see any changes! I just took a photo to compare with my pre-ops and I LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME!!!even my sister has told me there is no difference whatsoever.

I have minimal pain now and the scar is almost unnoticeable. I am so very upset at having thrown away all this money :( How could this be possible? the assistant told me when they finished the surgery that they had taken our almost 50 units of fat, you'd think that would make a difference. Has anyone experienced something like this?

12 weeks later (see new photo). As I suspected, the area where I felt the most numbness is where I had the most change (right side). The doctor said he could go back but to give it more time because the swelling. I looks better, I must say, but nothing dramatic. Oh well. I have an appointment soon and I'll decide if I have to have surgery again. my left side is basically the same as pre-surgery, and the back of the neck is the same.

It's been 8 months now, and the "spongyness" that I felt on my neck has gone away. I don't have a 90 degree angle on my neck as I wanted because the structure of my neck will simply not let that happen, but when I clench my jaw I no longer have the slight bulldog-like jowls I used to have. Also, I've lost about 5 pounds and every one that has not seen me in a while asks if I've lost weight, that I look great/younger (an I don't think 5 pounds would make a noticeable difference, so it has to be the lack of fat under the neck).

So overall the procedure was worth it. I am considering a chin implant to see if it would help with my neckline.

I forgot to mention that the residual swelling went down at the same time that I recuperated most of the feeling sensation on my jaw (it's about 90% back to normal).

After about 1 year I had a revision with another doctor, and it turned out MUCH better. I am giving this a "was worth it" reting based on the 2nd revision.
