My 2 styloids were removed on Saturday. Follows their picture and scar. Both bones around 4.5 cm each. The surgery was uneventful and I'm still recovering. The neck is swollen (third day). The surgeon, Dr. Romualdo S. L. Tiago, is brazilian expert in this area. He tried to leave scars as possible hidden. I would also comment that anesthesia was excellent. Currently anesthetic drugs have greatly improved. I slept and woke up quietly.
