Depressed a Week out

I had a medial thigh lift, lipo , and fat grafting...

I had a medial thigh lift, lipo , and fat grafting to the buttocks. These scars are a week out. I am disappointed and getting depressed. The doctor was saying how well u looked but I don't feel like that. These scars are nasty. I've had a tummy tuck and my breast done and scars are thin, flat, and to the skin not meaty and buckled looking like this?I was told to use bacitracin ointment on the scars. Please help
It takes a lot of time to heal I was like that to and my scars were doing ok but in the back it was just not closing good try not to move a lot rest please

3 weeks post-opt scars

I hope these scars close and start to look better. The left side is stinging and burning...bad pain meds does not help.
You must wear that garment ,, the garment is to reduce swelling its called compression , without it at early stages you will balloon. Like I say if it rubs just get some gauges , there white square light material dab beta dine on them and place over the top then wear garment to hold in place use tape but cut 2 pieces and place each end, don't use one strip as this puts pressure onto the scar ,, I've found a gem of body washes by imperial leather cucumber and aloe Vera,,, it's a clear gel with no perfumes has lots of healing properties in it and is only cheap,, buy this , if your doc has given ointment use it lightly and don't add any more oils to it,, beta dine is a brown liquid and brilliant for scars at an early stage,,, stop thinking creams ,,, all you need to do is squirt beta dine on a gauze and apply !

2Muchmaintenance, my scars look like yours and my left side is worse also. The right side is thin and healing well and the left side is raised and swollen and meaty looking. i still use the bacitracin 2 times a day and i started wearing spanx on thursday. I have another endermology treatment next week. I am still VERY swollen

scar updates

I'n not that thrilled with these scars. I had an appt yesterday with my ps. He took pictures told me I great I look. When I expressed concern with the healing of the scars his response is, "oh you just wait" it's going to look much better. One scar is raised and puffy actually two scars are like that. This man does not acknowledge my feelings and he doesn't recommend anything. He just tells me to message with vitamin e oil. This is totally unacceptable then he asked to see me in 3 months. I am five weeks out from surgery. If any measure needs to be taken as far as improving the scars, is that to late? Shouldn't I be treating the scars now instead of three minths from here? I can't take it anymore. I have scheduled an appointment with my dermatologist.

not thrilled

Scars 5 weeks post opt
I am scheduled to have my TL procedure on October 24, 2013. I am excited yet nervous. I have had my tummy done already where they took off 18.4 pounds. I am looking for anyone to give me any pointers or advice that I may have overlooked and just plain forgotten about. I have been told I will have to wear a compression garment after surgery however, how does one go to the bathroom with this thing on?? Is it hard to take off and put on??? I would think that it would rub and irritate the incision. I was also told that my incision will be form my vagina to my knee. If anyone can help me or would be willing to be a new friend.. please email me ! Looking so forward to getting this done!!!!

why is the left side still raised?

Can someone answer this for me. I am starting to think my ps hit my lymph node. When I massage it feels like swollen balls beneath the cut.
