How long before you saw final results?

I'm 4 months post op & I still feel some minimal discomfort at times. At first I was perfectly fine. I feel like there are days (mainly if I'm siting all day) where some swelling may occur & then there's other days where I'm fine. Other than that, I look fine downstairs! :) So girls, what was your recovery like and when did you see FINAL results? I hear it can take up to 6 months at times. I'm still so "gentle" down there too!

I am only 8 days post OP and sifting through all of these blogs leads me to believe I have a long way to go! That being said, I could finally walk like a human on day 5 and swelling has gone down. I am concerned she may not have taken off as much as I'd like on the right side; however she also did most of the surgery on this side so perhaps its still swollen? How long did it take for you to get an idea of how the final result would look? Thanks for your advice in advance!

You are still very early in the game, so I wouldn't be concerned with any swelling or unevenness. To begin with, I had minimal swelling & bruising. In a sense, I healed fairly quickly but still can experience sensitivity in certain areas. If more was performed on one side, then it's likely that you have more swelling on that side as well. I've learned that the worst thing you can do is look in a mirror all the time and over-analyze it, lol It just makes the process more frustrating! Hang in there and keep us posted on your results! :)

I am 8 days post op and much of the swelling has reduced but there's still soreness and funkiness. I am concerned not enough was taken off the right side; however i realize i may still be swollen... Anxious to see the final result, whenever that is!
