My entire life I have had a heavy neck and double chin, no matter what weight I am at. I think it made my face look masculine. I HATED seeing myself in photos. This terrible feeling would come over me every time someone pulled out a camera. I'd try to position my head to minimize the neck (you know what I'm talking about if this is your problem area too).
I had the laser lipo of the neck in April. There was a fairly dramatic improvement that day, but then the swelling took over and I looked about the same as before for the next few weeks. Dr. Vargas explained that it would take months for the final results to show. I actually didn't realize that and thought it would work more quickly. Anyway, after a month or two I was already satisfied with the results, but little did I know that even MORE improvement would happen. Seriously, at 6 months out, I have a totally different neck line. So I am beyond thrilled with the results. My neck just keeps getting tigher and looking better.
I think this procedure isn't always appropriate (like if you are older and have too much skin laxity) but since I am 37 and have fairly resilient skin, it was the best thing ever. I am so happy I did it.
