I have some laxity under my chin and along my jawline. I reside in Miami Beach and I have consulted with 4 different doctors from Miami Beach all the way to Boca Raton. I was pretty shocked with the vast difference in prices ranging from $1500 all the way to $4200. All doctors I consulted with were referred by ThermiTight in their Doctor locator search.
I'm willing to pay more money depending on the Doctor's experience and his or her reviews. After much deliberation I have chosen Dr Pozner in Boca Raton for 2 reasons: He has done over 100 of these procedures and the cost is affordable. It is $2500 and a 200 dollar facility fee. I have not yet booked my appointment as I want to get some more feedback with regard to the various price ranges for the same procedure. Maybe its just me but I find some doctors are charging way too much and I'm don't want to be duped when I can use the saved money for another beauty treatment.
Looking for feedback with regard to price, bedside manner, and result from the following docs:
Dr Phanor Calle Weston FL
Dr Rivlin, Miami Beach
Dr Rubenstein, Aventura
Dr Pozner, Boca Raton
Day 1-Waking Up after Thermitight
NEXT MORNING - HOLY HELL I am in so much pain. I have a very high tolerance for pain so I am quite shocked. I have read many reviews and no one has described this pain. It hurts whenever I use my neck muscles including swallowing, stretching, and turning my head. So happy I took off of work and my kids spent the night out. I can't wait to see the doctor today to see what is going on under the bandages. Generally I don't bother with pain medication but I am actually considering requesting a stronger pain medication.
Friday: Day 1 After Thermitight and after 1st Post-Op Visit
I feel 100% better than I did this morning, sorry that I whined with my earlier post. I had my follow-up next day post-op visit. I arrived 45 minutes early and they graciously took me right in. I went in to take the bandages off and to replace it with a chin strap. The pain level is down to a bearable 4 and apparently upon waking up it is normal to feel much worse. I thought I was getting the stitches out, but was told that I will do that in 3 days (Monday). Everything looks ok from the nurses end. I will wear the chin strap for the weekend, but I can take it off for a short period if I need to run an errand.
