I hate my neck



Recommended Posts

My neck is so wrinkly and lined and I look in the mirror and sigh..then, I put on my size 12’s ... easily, walk up the stairs without feeling like I am dying... dance around with my dog and feel my ribs and sayYAAAAY !!!... then I see my wrinkly neck... repeat

It was bad enough I was as Big as a Dragon, but now I have a neck like a flippin' turtle, not desirous of being an reptile unless I can be pretty like a Coral Snake or as fearsome as an Gila Monster, they're poisonous, Nobody messes with THEM!
I've only made it down to a 18-20 but starting with 28-30W that is COOL at this point. And I may still whittle down to my 175 Goal!

Are you considering any plastics? A lift?

I am so psyched to have my cosmetic stuff done. I feel this way about my arms. I can't bear to see them in the mirror.

Im getting an arm lift in August (this has, and always been my first priority). Am contemplating getting a Tummy Tuck at the same time.

I can live with the lines in my neck. And "un-firm" inner thighs. And non-existant butt.

I’ll wait to see what it all looks like in a year .. when I get to maintenance and I see what exercise can do.. and my motto is "if ya can’t tone it , tan it”.. spray tan that is😊

When I get to maintenance I’ll decide.. I want my teeth fixed as well.. my surgery wish list is looooong!

LOL, I've heard this one before...going on an island vacay a couple weeks before scheduled arm lift this summer...if only a few days in the sun would save me from the cost of plastics...i would happily go on vacay all year long :)

I am PRAYING my plastic surgeon lets me do my tummy and arms at the same time. Not sure if he will allow it. I have a consult in August. My arms are definitely the priority, though.

Eyes

Boobs

Stomach

Arms

In that order. I hope. The first 2 are for sure!

I don't have that "waddle" anymore now that I've lost some weight and I use firming lotion on it every night so that hopefully I won't get the wrinkly sharpei neck. I guess I'll wear scarves or turtlenecks if it bothers me. 🙂

I've seen 3 surgeons and all three were down with doing both at the same time. Two of them said I would need an overnight stay at the hospital, while the third said he could do it outpatient. I chose one of the pro-hospital-stay guys.

I'm re-thinking my surgery date though, I have a wedding to go to in September, and I think I may push it to after the wedding in case I need more time to heal....

I’ve recently started RF tightening treatments (Thermalift is one of the ‘name brands’) on my neck and face. I’ve had two treatments and I haven’t noticed a difference, but three is usually considered the minimum and 10-12 is the norm.

I was excited by before and after pics online. But last treatment my technician was excited to show me another patient she considers a huge success. The difference was much more subtle than I had hoped!

I’ll continue to go for the 10 treatments at least. At least it’s far more affordable than plastics!
