So far so good. I had Lipotherme laser lipo done yesterday.
A few quick notes:
It is a painful experience, but more so mentally. The physical pain is not unbearable by any means, it is the time on the table that started to get too me. So I talked through the whole procedure because I am a nervous talker. Anyways, when I was initially numbed it hurt.
The noise made by the cannula and suctioning is very unsettling. Something, I will never forget (or more than likely like my keys the noise will be forgotten rather easily).
I ache from my jaw to my upper chest. As the numbing solution discipitated throughout the day the soreness was very heavy. Not sure if I would call it pain but rather very strong soreness. In addition my neck is extremely stiff. I cannot look up or too far off right or left.
My Plastic Surgeon removed 75ccs from my neck/chin/jaw area. From drawing on my neck to clean up the procedure took slightly over 2 hours.
As noted in the question: following my Plastic Surgeons advice, today, I took off the compression garment to remove the dressing and took a shower. I am shocked by the definition of the surgery. i do not have skin sagging/fat (AKA double chin) or whatever it was as I use too. To me it is too good to be true. I am wondering if it just because I am wearing the compression garment and that after not wearing the compression garment then my skin will sag. Any advice or experience on this would be great. I am very astonished with the results.Over one full day post-op from lipotherme of the neck/chin/jaw area basically called neck lipo. Following my Plastic Surgeons advice I took off the compression garment to remove the dressing and took a shower. I am shocked by the jaw definition of the surgery. i do not have skin sagging/fat or whatever it was as I use too have. To me it is too good to be true. I am wondering if it just because I am wearing the compression garment and that after not wearing the compression garment then my skin will sag. My question: once I am done wearing the compression garment will the results I see today (only one full day postop) go away. I am thrilled with the results. Also, when does one usually begin to look up because my neck is really, really stiff.
My procedure is now over three years old. The...
