Today I had smartlipo on my chin and my jowls. My main purpose was to get a more defined, manlier jawline. One incision was made right under my chin, which is weird, because on my consultation my surgeon said he would make two more incisions behind my earlobes. I asked him about this after the procedure and he said he didn’t need to because he could reach everything from that one incision.
There’s a question here on realself about this and the doctors say they can get better results with three incisions, so I am a little concerned that my surgeon just wanted to finish quick and that’s why he didn’t make 3 incisions. The procedure was really quick and painless but I was scared to death seeing wha he was putting in me and then kinda agressively moving it around. Sometimes I could smell something burning too.
The lipo itself didn’t last longer than 15 minutes. The thing I was the most afraid of is nerve damage. The first thing I checked was if my smile was symetric and thank god it was. I’ve come home and immediately took the compression garment off just for a quick peek of what I look like now. I have little to no improvement. It does seem a tiny little better but it might be because sometimes I hold my head differently and than it looks better. I was secretly hoping for a miracle but it’s clearly not the case.
Well I’m hoping for the best and I hope it’ll look better. It’s starting to hurt a little and the compression garment is really uncomfortable, but I am far more worried about my final results than a little unconvenience.
