I went to Enhanced Form for a neck lifting procedure. They told me that pain wise it would be minimum. I'm allergic to any of the good narcotics, and have relied on extra strength Tylenol through my other procedures just fine so they told me it would be the same for this procedure. Unfortunately, it wasn't. This surgery left me feeling the pain! I wish I would have been warned ahead of time, instead of being assured over and over again that the pain would be minimal.
Also, towards the end of the surgery, the anesthesiologist made a mistake and pulled the tube too soon. I woke up vomiting, which is not good for someone who just had a neck lift. But the tube wouldn't fit back in, so they had to force it back in to re-intubate me. So on top of a more painful healing, I had the worst sore throat for days after the surgery.
I was so uncomfortable and in a good deal of pain for over ten days after the procedure. I wish everyone had been more up front with me about the pain. I think the results are wonderful, and I am very happy with them. And my surgeon is great and did a really great job! I would highly recommend them. I would go back there again, only next time I'd make sure that they used another anesthesiologist.
