I had a lot of excess skin after massive weight...
I had a breast lift, full anchor cut. I also had a tummy tuck, hip to hip scar placement. I was prepared to do lipo, but my surgeon did not feel it would enhance my results, as I really had mostly skin, little fat, so we decided against it.
Immediately after surgery, I was elated with the removal of skin and felt so shapely. But multiple complications such as seromas and opened wounds really put a damper on things.
I am somewhat happy with the results but I am considering revisions. The reasons I am unhappy are that my breasts are uneven. The right breast should have been reduced in size to match my left breast. I also really would have liked my breasts perkier, so I am considering reduction or implants.
I also feel that I have a dog ear on the right side and possibly a permanent seroma pocket on the left, so I am going to be evaluated if further surgery will improve my TT results.
I also scarred very badly, which has never happened before to me in other surgeries. Not sure what went wrong, but my scars are very wide on the TT incisions. The vertical scars on my breasts are also wider than I hoped. And the shape of my right areola really spread strangely.
Feeling better about surgery outcome
My surgeon was very kind and knowledgeable. His nurse Patty was awesome, caring and attentive. I had an overall great experience in MX, except for my personal homesickness and loneliness. The clinic was clean and modern and my treatment was top notch. Complications once I went home made it difficult to be so far from my surgeon, so I had to seek out a local surgeon for follow up care. Overall, I feel my results could have been better, but I'm not sure if it is just the way I healed.
