I had seen the infomercial and thought that sounded like a great way to get rid of my turkey neck and deepening lines around my mouth. They tell you that it only takes a week to see the results and that's a bunch of crap! My Granddaughter won't even look at me and my daughter cried.
I have scabs and a spot on the side of my face near the incision line by my ear that looks like it was burned and even had blisters that popped and I remember hearing the doctor say "oops" when he was doing that side but the tech said that it was because I smoke that that happened! I believe he burned me and didn't say anything about it!
The shots that they give you are extremely painful and I was shaking like crazy when they were done with them only to have them start again. I was not in the least "sleepy" and was awake to smell my flesh burning and to hear the cutting of the tendons. Even though I had to endure their shots to numb me I could still feel the pain of the procedure. Especially when he was stuffing wads of gauze in the skin under my chin!
My sister in law was waiting in for me and was told by the receptionist that he was doing 21 lifts that day!
I can not open my mouth wide enough to eat a burger and my ears, jaw and under my chin are all numb. The tech asked if I had sharp pains in them as this is the sign of the nerves healing and I have not had any of that and don't expect to.
I have had other surgeries and have permanent numbness from then and think this will be the same. My neck is so painful that I can hardly stand to touch it. I had to have rotator cuff repair done on my shoulder and that was less painful!!! The lasering wasn't bad except that he went too deep in several areas around my eyes and now I have scars. That was numbed with several shots too but still felt like being snapped by rubber bands over and over again.
