Doesn't Look How I Thought - Minneapolis, MN

I dont look any different just bigger boobs......

i dont look any different just bigger boobs....went from 38b-c to a 38dd, after a wisefull lift, extended tummy tuck 5 pounds was removed from middle. lipo was done to hips and one thigh. i dont have any bruising on hips, just a small bruise on my left thigh.


my tummy looks very puffy espacially up by ribs, my shape is squared not hourglass look, my butt looks old and cellultite full i paid 20 thousand dollars and im not happy

2weeks im feeling pretty good...............i had a little trouble with my belly button it was black had to use nitro cream and one little patch under my boob,........but they came back woohoo.....ive had severe swelling in my legs and feet lost feeling in one toe, my PS dosent seem concerned, which bothers me ! when someone has surgery and their ankles swell up the size of their claves theres something going on ....ya think?

Im 3 weeks PO and what a emotional ride it has...

im 3 weeks PO and what a emotional ride it has been! i thought i would look better then i do....
for some reason i have swelled up around my ribcage area it is huge i cant even see my tummy bellybutton even unless i look in a mirror, my PA said theres nothing right now he can do. i never had this shape before, its like some fat settled up there during the surgery and im stuck with it. i guess i was thinking no more muffintop...anywhere! oh well............my belly button dident want to tale i had to use nitro cream and also under my right breast theres a dead patch its black, as is my belly button........when they took out my drains, i dont want to freak anyone out, but be prepared! it hurts like hell!!! the inside of my drains looked like a long sprinkler full of holes its much larger inside then the holes they are ripped out through.............i have what ive seen referred to as dogears which is not corrected under this 20 thousand dollars i just paid bums me out
i hope nobody else is having troubles...........ttl

5 weeks post op now, the girls are dropping finally everyday they seem softer i have sharp stinging pains still which is nerves and is normal. the incisions under my boobs are quite extensive, from the inside of my cleavage all the way around to under my arm which is very sore from my arms and clothes rubbing along the area. my implants are 450 med. profile cohesive silicone under the muscle with a full wise breast lift i have been using vitamin e oil, zinc oxide cream, triple anti biotic cream, mederma cream mixed together for my tummy scar and the girls the zinc really seems to protect the area and feels very soothing, i also use a bur n cream that seems to reduce the pain alot. well its been 5 weeks now and my hips and butt are still very sore alot of swelling yet, i have these hard huge bumps across my hips and butt and they hurt bad...i have had 2 massage treatments so far to break up scar tissue that lipo suction leaves behind, the massage is helping thankfully. now as for my tummy i am a little bummed the outcome wasent what i had expected it seems that fat or whatever it is sifted upwards to my rib cage area its huge theres even a roll whan i sit down there, i cant see over it so i look very heavy now on top and with the new girls i look fat. i have a completely distorted shape i am not happy about i was so excited to have curves again ..im still a barrel shape 20 grand and a butt load of pain later how depressing ...my PS made a comment the week after surgery that in a year or so he could try lipo on my upper tummy for a fee, however i dont know what to think or how to dress now i cry alot these days and i thought those days of hiding my body were going to be over , worse yet my comfort clothes i once hid in dont look right either with my big boobs i look so odd
my self asteem is about shot .....
