First of all my sister and I traveled 4 hrs. to Clayton, Mo. for the procedure in Oct. of 2007.
We were told we could return to Kansas City the next day, I asked if I could drive, and I was informed I could, no big deal. We were not informed YOU NEED someone taking care of you, because you are so drug up the first 48 to 72 HRS.
Thank God we decided to travel by train, the next day after surgery, we went for a post op appointment, the DR. said we were OK to travel and sent us off. This was dangerous, as we both just remember bit and pices of the trip, I don't even remember where my sister was sitting on the train, or if she even was on the train, we were literally passed out.
You also look swollen (operated) for at least 3 to 4 weeks you should see my co-workers looks, and lumps like peas in your cheeks for at least 3 months.
My scars are not so bad, but my sisters scars seem to move away from the ear line to the center of her chick as time goes by,it is just getting worse!!, and these are no little scars, they are wide and wrinkle, as if she was burned. She will definetely need to go to a REAL Plastic Surgeon if she ever wants to look normal....
One thing is to Sag...another is to get these horrible scars.
