Going to Guadalajara for my surgery booked through gosculptura has anyone else been there my surgeon is dr Cardenas and I will be staying at the rest and recover after. My other question is I can hire a nurse should I do so after I am released from the hospital 2 days after op it is arranged through the recovery place and I will be traveling alone

Getting all my supplies ready for the surgery I leave next week for my vacation so want to make sure I have everything ready for my trip on October 15th. I am not nervous about the breast lift but am scared of the tummy tuck and lipo I hear that lipo is very painful and takes a long time to heal. I am travelling alone and will have a nurse come to the recovery center to help me out for a few days this is arranged through the recovery center and is really cheap $62 for 12 hours if anyone else is going to rest and recover in Guadalajara or has been i would love to hear from you it would be nice and wishful thinking if someone is there at the same time as me. Citymom I am excited to hear about how your surgeries go as you are having it done 3 weeks before me :). Can anyone recommend a good scar cream and what suppliments i should take

ok so now im confused I am not sure if its a reduction and lift or a lift i need I'm a 34DDD I thought a lift would give me a full 34D cup which I would be happy with but I have red that my breasts will sag within a year if I only get a lift anyone with larger breasts just done the lift I have posted my question to the doctors so hopefully I should know which way to go

Sleeping ok I have been taking sleeping tablets I was very swollen today but am starting to see great results my surgery lasted 7 hours the first night was a bit rough but is getting better daily. My drains come out Monday and i will see my surgeon then i am curious to know how much skin and fat was removed I'm having a total of 3 ultrasounds to help with the healing next week never heard of this but it's supposed to help with the swelling and healing. I hate the daily shot I have to give myself to stop me from getting dvt but I know it's important

Rough day today very sore and swollen around my hips (lipo area) and my tt scar I have been in pain all day I've taken the pain meds prescribed by my dr and a couple of Tylenol too. I'm hoping for a good nights rest. The good new is my breast have evened out and starting to look great. I see my ps tomorrow to have the drain removed but not sure if they will as I am still losing fluid 150 a day but it's the clear stuff I will let you know tomorrow

15 days post op I now have a very small hole which is draining clear yellow fluid (started 2 days ago) I called my drs office and my ps said its a Seroma that's draining and it should take 3-5 days before it stops I guess it's better out than in and my swelling has gone down immensely since this happened and my pain is nearly gone I am down to 154 lbs I was 163 lbs post op he's put me on antibiotics and diuretics to make sure nothing gets infected and the seroma drains. I'm feeling much better and have gone back to work
