Wish I'd Done It Sooner! - Bellevue, WA

Over the last ten years I have developed a lot of fat in my neck and chin area, resulting in an enormous double chin. After looking at pictures taken of my profile, I decided it was time do something about it. Losing weight never seemed to make a difference, as I believe the fat was due to an unfortunate side effect of a prescription drug I was on.
Consult:
After consulting with Dr Naficy, I was sure I was making the right choice. Sure he's a bit more expensive than other surgeons, but this is my face we're talking about! I was willing to pay a bit more to see him. And yes, it was so worth it.
Surgery:
The surgery went very smoothly. The assistants and anesthesiologist made me very comfortable and I was confident I was in good hands. Dr Naficy was very thorough when explaining the surgery as well and after steps also.
Recovery Process:
I never really felt too much pain. My neck was sore as if I had been choked out or something ( I don't really know what it feels like to be choked, but I think this was close.) The most annoying part was sleeping with my head elevated for a week. And the chin wrap. It was kinda itchy and I was happy when i didn't have to wear it all the time. Although, I did put it back on a couple times a couple weeks after just because it felt so supportive and I didn't want any possible skin sagging.
I'm really happy with the scars too. Or lack there of. I generally scar very easily, but Dr Naficy did such a beautiful job with the incisions... I still know where they were, but none of my friends or family can tell. Just amazing. I did have to massage the scar tissue after I had recovered a bit. And it hurt super bad! I was on the verge of tears at times, but I knew I had to keep it up. So glad I did. I just massaged once a day, almost every day, for half an hour or more if I could stand it. Nothing too hard, just moving the tissue around and kneading out any lumps and bumps. After about a month my neck smoothed out and the small canals and ridges were pretty much gone.
3 Months later:
So So So happy I did this. In fact, I wish I had done it sooner! My profile is so different. My chin has a bottom edge instead of a vertical drop. It's awesome. I don't have to suck up my neck anymore and stand with a bird neck just to minimize my chin. I even noticed my posture is better! Best decision I've made in years.
