My after pics are the next day had surgery on July 30 in the early AM it was like a 7 hour procedure and the pics were taken the next morning after the doc took off dressings. I was back to work at 3 weeks out I have an open area under my right breast that is healing well but other than that doing fine.
Is it open because the incision reopened (this sounds dumb but I don't want to assume) and how was that treated? I ask because I had a TT incision reopen and had to pack it so I am always interested how others' are treated. Thank you.

2 months out

Here are some updated photos as of today still have a wound

Congratulations! I am so happy for you! Your before and after photos are amazing. Yes, you do look younger! Glad to hear the worst part of the pain is over. Praying that the wound heals soon as these can be stubborn. I can't believe you were back to work so soon. Looking forward to your updates! (Have you seen @jenniferhammond88? She just had her arms and breasts done too...but with implants. You're lucky you didn't need implants!)

Also, thanks for posting your photos. It is very hard to find images of breast lifts without implants.

Please let me know what you experience during the revision in the office to remove that skin. I may have dome in office revisions and I am wondering what it feels like, how long it takes, if you can see everything that is going on, etc. Thanks and good luck with your revision.

Revision

Well I went for revision in doctor office yesterday. It was an experience prior to the revision upper arm measured 16 in on both after revision with all swelling 15 inches I was numbed with lidocan I felt some if the cutting and suturing but it was all well my arms look more toned after the swelling goes down they should be about 13 inch around now I could have seen it all but did not look. At the begging my arms measured 32 inch around to probably about 13 in. That's 19 inches of fat and skin!!!! Sure am glad

Good to hear about your revision, I have heard it's not uncommon at all to need some sort of revision on the arms many times even having two surgeries. Looks like I will need some sort of revision too. I had a small area at the bottom of both arms that had some bunching or "pulled thread" looking area. So I will either have a in office redo or when I go in for my LBL had them redone. I most likely will go for the quick fix and another go around of healing doesn't sound too good...

Wow, amazing to me that they can remove so much tissue in the office with only a local anesthetic. How long did it take? Could you see what was going on? It did not freak you out? I am planning for in-office revisions in March and I want to know from the patient perspective what the experience is like. Your arm transformation is amazing! Enjoy!!!

100lbs lost! That's inspirational! I tryna lose weight myself. So far I lost about 40 to 50lbs (not sure what my starting weight was). If I was to go by the outdated BMI chart, I would have about 140lbs to go before I get to a so-called "healthy" weight. But realistically, I plan to lose about 90lbs before I seek surgery, and about a 105lbs to go to get to MY goal weight. And I'm doing it all on my own - and for the first time in my life, I actually BELIEVE I can do it! :)
