Hello, I had surgery with the doctor and I can see why he's the best. The consultation itself was $200 or $250. I dont remember actually. but it was in the $200 range. I never doubted his credentials. The price that I paid was $7800. And i opted to stay overnight at the facility which was about additional $450? My surgery was March and I'm about 2 weeks post surgery. I think every person heals differently. With that said, my lip numbness pretty much went away the first night. I had no bruising at all. I do have tightness and slight numbness under my chin where the incision was made and right at the bottom of the chin. I personally don't see anymore swelling around my cheeks. Though i do think my chin is slightly swelled. But overall, I'm back to work, interacting with people and I'm fine. The implant looks SO natural. I was really hesitant at first because i was terrified that the result would not be what i wanted. but so far so good. I told him i just wanted something very natural. I'm aware that at two weeks post surgery, my final result is still pending so i do wanna wait and see before i proclaim that it's exactly what i want. but like i said, so far so good. i feel like i'm recovering very well. better than expected. and i attribute that to his skills.
I didn't have a chin implant, but I did have jaw augmentation (as well as a facelift, mid face lift, bletharoplasty, and tummy tuck) with Dr. Y. Everything turned out well and I'm very pleased. If I ever decide I need a chin implant (which I don't) I wouldn't hesitate to go to him.
7800 for chin implant and I've heard someone else mention 10500 for jaw implants. That's about 18000 for them together and even if there is savings associated with getting them together, there's no way it could come up to 12000, which I heard was his price around 2007. Has his prices increased by this much?
