Undergoing a chin implant, buccle fat pad removal...
Undergoing a chin implant, buccle fat pad removal and submental liposuction tomorrow in Miami. Overall pretty excited about the procedure, will keep you guys posted. I have done plenty of research online on all of these procedures, and feel I would have a positive outcome from the surgeries. I have chosen a facial plastic surgeon from Miami, Florida to perform the surgery and I feel very confident in his abilities. He took plenty of time during the consultation to explain the procedures and the expectations that I should have. I have seen that the recovery varies drastically from patient to patient so I will keep you guys posted on the procedure and recovery. Hopefully this will help anyone else in the future considering these procedures.

Day of treatment
For those of you that are curious, here are some pics from surgery date. I'm only about two hours out of recovery. The doctor and stuff were amazing and the pain is definitely manageable.
Day after surgery
Went for my post op visit today and everything is healing amazing. I have had no real pain, just pressure and discomfort. I have stuck to eating soft food for today just in case. I have discontinued the pain medication and moved onto Tylenol. The office staff continues to amaze me with their kindness and professionalism. FANTASTIC DOCTOR!!!
So about the no pain comment...
Ouch! The pain is real and it has arrived. Last night was the worst so far but now im getting better. The scars on the inside of mouth for buccal fat removal are gone. The chin implant one is very clean and healing great. Overall, swollen but can see results.
Just a matter of time...
The pain is now gone, swelling will slowly start going away. Now it's just a matter of waiting for the final results to start showing. Overall, a fairly easy process that I would do again if I had to.
1 week later...
What an amazing experience. It just shows what taking your time and searching through this site can do. I believe I chose the perfect doctor for my needs. Not only is he phenomenal, but his staff is second to none. The surgery went beautifully, recovery has been overall easy and at one week, I am very happy. I had my stitches removed from the chin implant today and the incision is barely noticeable. The stitches from the Buccal fat removal fell off by themselves, you can't even see a scar at all. For anyone that is thinking about having any of these procedures done, my advice is to definitely do it. However, only do it once you have found a doctor like Dr. Bared. Make sure you use a doctor that specializes in facial plastic surgery as opposed to the one stop shops, it makes all the difference in the world.
