One year ago today…

  Well, most of  you might remember that I did have my “turkey neck” removed last year, just in time for Thanksgiving…I was in mortal danger of being on someone’s platter that year…

Here are a few before pictures to remind you (and ME) of why I chose this elective surgery…


Left, 1-14-11………………………Right, me as my alter ego, Maxine..2-9-11

Taken 4-4-11 (I was demonstrating some of the hand signals I give Dennis when he backs the Hiker in..Winking smile)

And today marks one year since I had that surgery…I am soooooo glad I did it….The self esteem is certainly better!I don’t even ind all the wrinkles because.. THE NECK IS GONE!

Taken last week ….what a difference….

And the last two are just to really show how BAD and  how much BETTER my neck looks…No danger of becoming “dinner” this Thanksgiving!

Left pic was taken the day of surgery last year….                           Right, what an improvement…I could have had a purse made from all that stuff hangin’ off my neck!

I’ve had so much plastic surgery, when I die I’m going to donate my body to Tupperware

  1. Donate your body to Tupperware, Ha-ha-ha-ha.I going to will mine to Miller Brewing(Makers of High Life.) and they can melt it down and put it in a can. Sam & Donna...

  2. You are beautiful. I think it took off about 15 yrs!!!

  3. Wow! that's all I can say. You look incredible.

  4. Well, I think you are a beautiful person in both the before and after!! With that can really see a difference and I know you are so glad you had that surgery done!! :-)

  5. If you are happy, we are happy! You are now like a swan. :)

    1. Thanks to you all for your support...I am no swan, but I'm not a Spoonbill Roseate either ;-)

  6. Only the neck? Looking good....sure ya didn't have a little tuck done as well? Glad it turned out so well :-)

  7. As Billy Crystal would say..............You look Maaaaavelous!

  8. Hey everybody like to remodel now and then...go for it if it feels good:)

  9. Amazing - what a difference. You look 20 years younger at least. Makes McGuyver look like a cradle robber.

  10. So glad I saw this post. I have the same thing but mine is this sack under my chin. You've encouraged me to look into the cost. Many thanks

    1. I researched this for a year...My surgery cost a total of $4800 for everything...all the office visits up to a year...I love my surgeon, Dr. Ghaderi!! Don't be afraid..I did NOT get a face lift though..just excess skin removed!!!
