For many patients like Nancy, Dr, Shahram Salemy adds that recovery can be faster and smoother and results can be quite natural, which is often the goal.

It worked for me.
“No More Turtlenecks”
“’Didn’t the wedding pictures turn out great, Mom?’ my daughter asked, passing me her photo album,” shares Nancy Weaver, a style director. “’They’re absolutely beautiful,’ I managed to reply, but all I could see was a fleshy chin and crepey neck in each of my shots.
“I’ve always been a fitness buff and am scrupulous about skin care, but three years ago, my jowly jaw and saggy neck added years and pounds to my appearance. I was tired of wearing turtlenecks and wincing any time a camera came near me.
“My outside was not match for the joy I felt inside, and I didn’t want my neck taking up another minute of focus, so I began to toss around the idea of cosmetic surgery. I contacted Shahrahm Salemy, M.D., a board-certified plastic surgeon in Seattle that a relative recommended, and after meeting him, I decided to go for it. The procedure took less than two hours. Incredibly, just one day after surgery, my neck and jawline were so smooth and beautiful that I looked 15 years younger.
“Now my outside is in sync with the way I feel. And these days, I call out to whoever has the camera, ‘Over here!’”
