After consulting and looking for a solution for years, I finally went ahead with the procedure after finding
a board certified local doctor that seemed to have a lot of experience. The skin on my neck blistered and scabbed deeply. It is over 6 weeks since my surgery now and I have discoloration, bruising, and still an open wound on my neck. This has nothing to do with an incision. This outcome is not what I was told to expect. I asked about the recovery time on this site (back in Nov.) because a big family event is coming up in March. All the answering physicians said "you will be fine for the event by then, with a board certified physician". He's now prescribed an anti scar ointment for me to use and claims it will heal in time.
