Neck looks awful after thyroidectomy - anyone else?

Hi all, I had a partial thyroidectomy in 2011 and now have what I believe are called "neck bands" so when I smile I have these long muscles/strings on either side of my neck that are very prominent. It looks awful and I'm so embarrassed. Has anyone else out there had anything like this?

No, fortunately you cannot even tell that I had surgery a little less than 2 years ago.

Well mine is more recent (July 2012) but I don't have anything like that (yet). Just a slightly raised red line that goes all the way across my neck.
