(not sure of cost ... had neck lift & upper eye lift at same time for $9500)
Great Doc. Great job on my eyes. No problem with the surgery, care or healing of necklift.
Am now 7 wks post-op on neck lift, and (particularly) my right salivary gland is ENORMOUS. It looks like I have a quail egg stuck in the side of my throat.
Doc says no way around it -- it is what it is. (My words -- his were far more gentle. :) Said it's just the way I'm built. Says my swelling is gone, too. (I'm still a bit tender and numb ... no big ... just hoping that means it'll still improve.)
Has anyone had a salivary gland appear *less noticable* after week 8? Though my chin is definitely more chiseled on my left side, I think my neck looks worse overall.
Looking for hope ... but thinking I made a poor choice.
