Removing Six Dog-ears and a Minor Abnormality in my Belly Button, 22 Months Post Mommy Makeover - Foster City, CA
Hi! I had a mommy makeover on 6 November 2012,...
These show the dog ears and my belly button. I'm still not entirely sure I should do the one on my left breast.
Tomorrow is the day!
Not much to say :). I go in at 7:30 a.m. and should be done with everything by 11:30 a.m. I added knee lipo which should take even less time than the other stuff. The scar revision should be easy work for the doc--I'm much more concerned about the lipo, frankly. Still a little sad that my scars will get longer, but hubby and I really don't like the dog-ears, so off they go! I'm expecting very little pain--so little that I won't notice it over the lipo. I'll tell you guys how right I was afterward, ;).
Please wish me luck!
It's 7:59 am, I've taken my meds and before pics. Waiting for the doctor now. They offered NetFlix while I wait! Whaaa? Swanky :). I was like, I can listen to my music for 15 minutes. Instead I'm here updating. Who needs Netflix?!
the revisions ended up taking a lite longer than we'd expected, but hopefully everything went well :). I'm covered by a compression garment so it'll be a little while before I can post.
it's 3pm and the lidocaine has begunwearing off on my left breast. It burns. Ow! I've already taken roxicodone. Don't know if it's working or not.
Still, it's totally bearable.
Trying my hand at uploading a video.
Getting tired of these bandages.
A little stinging, a lot of itching, and I'm getting tired of these saran-wrap-thpe bandages just trapping the blood. My navel looks great though! I hope the others will look equally great soon.
Oh, I was supposed to get a call from Dr. B's office the day after the procedure to schedule my follow-up appointment, but that call never came. So I have no idea how long I'm supposed to keep these things on.
I'll call tomorrow.
Bad Reaction :(
I thought the itching was healing, but now it's red and swollen where he cleaned me yesterday:(. The itching is also terrible. I'm so glad I'm going to see the doc tomorrow, but it's not till the afternoon. If it gets a lot worse, I'm going to the emergency room. Hoping not to do that though. Huge pain in the butt!
PO Day 25
Everything is looking great! Healing is going well, and the only itching left is in my breast scar revisions on the medial side. So both of the scars in the center are itching, though it's less today. It may be because I took an antihistamine last night (24-hour) for terrible allergies I've been having lately. I feel like it's from this surgery, because I don't normally have allergies like that, but we'll see low long it continues.
Meanwhile, I'm uploading new pics. I'm so pleased! It's not perfect, but it's vastly improved from before and better than I'd expected :):):). Sorry, they're all in random order for some reason.
Had a really good experience! Though they never did give me the before/after pics as promised.
