After reading other success stories, I felt compelled to share my experience, particularly because I’m a man, and I’m guessing men don’t normally do this sort of thing. 

For me, it was my chin. I’m a spitting image of my father:  short, stocky legs; protruding belly; full face. I love the man dearly but have always hated our family’s “roundness.” As a child, he once told me this is who we are and there’s nothing I could do about it. 

I moved to Chicago for a banking job. Suits and ties filled my closet as I worked long hours, ate horribly, and never exercised. By 35, I weighed more than my 65 year old father. 

Then came dad’s heart attack. It changed everything. 

Thankfully, dad recovered. But it really scared me. I thought of my wife and kids and decided, like dad, I needed to change my lifestyle. 

I lost 40 pounds the following year by dieting and exercising. My energy level increased and I felt great. Work brought us to St. Louis and life couldn’t have been better. 

One morning while putting my tie on it hit me…I had dropped weight from my stomach, but my chin was still fat. Looking in the mirror I saw my new body with the same double chin hanging over my shirt collar. I hated it. Dad’s advice of “there’s nothing I could do about it” were of no comfort. 

That’s when I called Soco Shaping. 

I’ll admit, I was nervous for my appointment. Had men ever tried this? I brought my wife for support, but my anxiety was eliminated the moment I walked in. The medical office is very professional, and Cindy couldn’t have been more warm and understanding. I won’t get into the boring details, but needless to say the procedure was so easy, I actually questioned if it would work. 

Good things come to those who wait. Sixty-two days later my double chin had shrunk. Miraculously, a jawline had formed. My face matched my new body! My wife cried. We couldn’t believe it. 

I emailed a photo to my dad. The Subject line read:  I DID SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
