I haven't had the bandages off yet (and won't for another 2 days), but the chest incision appears to be lateral, placed about one inch below the clavicle, and about 3 inches in length. The neck incision varies from what I've been told, because the surgeon looks to "hide" it in a crease about a thrid of the way up the neck. The neck incision is slightly shorter than the chest. Right now I'm experiencing some numbness on the left side of the neck, so I'll be making a call to the doctor in the morning.

Thanks for the support.
