54, Neck and Chin Lift with Facelift - New York, NY

It is almost 1 month since facelift with chin and neck done too. I am concerned about the scar and the chin skin that is still hanging there. I have talked to my doctor about what he did to me and he will make it right once I heal a few more weeks. He did a smas facelift and tightened up the neck muscles. He also surgically removed the fat under the chin and fixed the muscles there too. Then he removed the excess chin skin and made a 2 inch scar under my chin. I iced it 20 min every hour for the first 3 days and kept the face brace on all the time. I had the stitches removed at 5 days and was given a small piece of foam to put pressure under the chin. I did that and still saw some red flags with hanging chin skin. I thought it was from the drain but it is the skin hanging. I'm lucky that I heal fast and have good results with scar healing. I started using scar gel and massages one week after stitches were out. I'm upset that I will be looking at chin skin removal surgery again. I hope my doctor will do it in the next week or so.

Update on picture...

I took a new picture today and will attach it here. I feel most of the swelling is gone as you can see. I have been using the biocornium scar cream along with massages each day. I saw the doctor and he will do the scar revision under local next week since I got my scar to be very soft. I pray to have great results.

Here is a picture with makeup and facing in the front.

Scar revision done

Going under local was not too bad. I heard the cutting and smelled a burning smell. Waiting game now as swelling in my chin and neck is bad. The scar looks better but not sure if all the extra skin is gone. Stitches come out next week.

More before pics ....

Happy Mother's Day if you are one. Feeling ok today but I see a little extra skin still on one side of chin. Trying to remember it will take time for swelling to heal. My doctor did a great job on my boobs but my chin had so much hanging skin as you can see on these pics.
