Chin/Neck Liposuction with Fat Injections into Jawline. Del Mar, CA

I am 25 years old and have a double chin as a result of genetics. I am very slender and have always been self conscious about this stubborn fat under my chin- always though that a defined jaw would better suit my body.

After looking at a few options and aatebding a few consultations, I decided lipo was the best fit.

The procedure itself was easier than expected. I was VERY nervous as I usually am with anything medical. The staff was amazing and made it very easy. I was awake the whole time and once the numbing injections are in you don't really feel anything except pressure.

I was also amazed at how fast it was- I was there around an hour or so. After returning home I was obviously out of it and resting but for the most part ok.

The next day was the hardest- I was very sore and did not do much. Even with the pain meds I found it to be very uncomfortable.

It is now day 4 post op and I am still really swollen in my face. You have to wear the compression garment around your face all the time during recovery, which is SUPER UNCOMFORTABLE. My neck is very stiff from wearing it and sleeping is very difficult because you have to sleep upright and on your back.

The procedure itself is so much easier than the recovery. I wish more people would have written that! I do not regret this at all- I can already see result when I take the compression garmet off to shower, I just wish I would have known how uncomfortable this was before I had it done.

Will post more results as I go!

Week three post op

I am still wearing the compression band at night, even though on day 5 my surgeon told me I could stop. I'm still pretty swollen around my cheeks and numb and sore. The skin beneath my neck seems to have swollen up more than it was. The first week or two it looked great outside of the wrap and now it seems to have gone back to the way it was before surgery. I'm hoping that this is just part of the process at this point.
