SECOND TIME Breast Reduction AND SLIM LIPOSUCTION.. Im So HAPPY!! - New York, NY

I had my first reduction 9 years ago. I went from...

I had my first reduction 9 years ago. I went from a DD to a B cup and I was SOO happy. Four years ago I had liposuction to my abs and because of fluctuations in my weight, the fat went to my boobs and my booty because you never really gain fat back in the areas that were lipo suctioned.

On Tuesday May 8th I had my second breast reduction. I was shocked my insurance covered it 100%% because I was only a D cup when I had my consultation. Let me tell you ladies this was by far THE BEST THING i HAVE EVER DONE! My boobs look better now then the first time I had them reduced and im only 3 days post op.

Day 6 This is the first day I feel kind of...

Day 6

This is the first day I feel kind of normal...HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!! Im not going to take my vicodin because I would love to have a nice rum and coke for Mothers Day! ahaha!! My drains should be out by tomorrow ( crossing my fingers ) These things are a pain in the booty! I think after my drains come out I will feel much better. I hate sleeping on my stomach!!

**I also forgot to mention that I had SLIM LIPO when I had my reduction. I have noticed I look smaller in the areas I had lipo suctioned ( upper and lower abs) But still lots of swelling. I have to admitt there is virtually NO pain or discomfort from the slim lipo. I almost forgot I had it because I was so focused on the pain from the reduction.

12:am....Of day 6 I am having a panick...

12:am....Of day 6

I am having a panick attack!!! I HATE these drains!! They should be out by tomorrow, but now Im so nervous about the pain associated with their removal..OMG! Someone please tell me i doesnt hurt :(

Still Day 6....DRAINS REMOVED

I took a Vicodin 2 hours before my appointment because I was scared about the pain.

Went in and gave them my output for the past 24 hours and He decided to take them out...YAY!!! Wait..Yay? Ummmm OMG how much pain are we talking about here???? He snipped a few stitches that were holding the drains in, told me to take a deep breathe as he started pulling this worm from out of my body..OMG!! IT burned and felt crazy odd and hurt a little bit..Nothing unbearable at all. He asked me about nipple sensation, and I told him they are erect since the day of surgery and he said GREAT, and told me I can take a SHOWER but dont get the reduction steri strips too wet.. :) !!! The nurse changed my liposuction steri strips and I was on my way..HAPPY AS HELL!!

Still day 6..About my SLIM LIPO

I have noticed major changes today. Although still swelling, my belly is much smaller and flatter then post op. I still have absolutely no pain from the slim lipo, and no bruising. I think I am going to start massaging my belly tomorrow. SO...So far VERY happy!!

Since my surgery I have lost 5 pounds yay!! BUT now im bored so, im eating like a crazy woman...How soon till I can start power walking ladies???

Last night was FABULOUS!! First shower in almost a week and to be able to lay on my side felt a little bit odd but I did it any way. Im still too sore to wash my hair and blow dry it, so Im going to the salon for a quick visit...Wash and set.

I can tell I ate entirely too much salt yesterday because from my boobs to my belly is very very swollen...Also ladies even though you may get an energy surge PLEASE TAKE IT EASY!! We just had major surgery take atleast the first 2 weeks to really recover please..

Day 9 post op..

Slim lipo:
looks better and BETTER every day!! I switched to a Spanx Higher power panty because my compression garmet was giving me indentations. I have started to notice lumps so I am gradually starting to massage my entire abdomin. Its very uncomfortable to massage the lumpy area's. About 70% of my abdomin is still slightly numb... All in all I am still 100%% HAPPY with slim lipo.
Breast reduction:
My sides where the drains were are still sore. Im pretty sure this is normal so im not worried. I am starting to itch like crazy at times. Can I take a benadryl??? I am in virtually no pain but I get a lightning shocks through my boobs at times and im like...OUCH!!! But it goes away as fast as it comes.

Day 11 post op 1:32 am

Been having throbbing pain in my right breast all day. It started after my shower. This was the first time really getting my steri strips wet. I wrapped my self in saran wrap, but they were soaked when I removed the plastic. A little bit after that the throbbing started...And has not stopped. I took a pain pill and I hope this pain will pass very soon.

Today my abs are swelling like crazy. I don't want to put my original surgical garmet on because it was causing indentations....Ahhhh. Not the best day ever. :(

Almost 2 weeks post op.

I realize the more I do the more pain I have in the evening... I really need to take it easy!
My liposuction steri strips look gross..LOL!! I still feel kinda dirty because I cant scrub my entire body.
Tomorrow I think my PS will be removing the two stitches I had from the drain site. Im a big baby so im not looking forward to that.
I see major changes in my belly! I feel there is almost no fat there. YAY!

2 weeks post op.

Yesterday my PS removed the 2 stitches that were holding the drains in.. he changed my steri strips (OUCH!) amd took the steri strips off my liposuction sites. He told me to start messaging my abs. ONCE again he told me to take it easy and do NOTHING for the next two weeks. This is becoming very hard. I dont feel like I am getting enough help at home. After the first week I was feeling better and it seemed like all the help I recieved stopped. My house looks terrible and its hard for me to sit around and watch it go to hell. Im starting to get very angry as I am expected to jump right back into my old routine. ugh

3 weeks post op...Getting very depressed..

My boobs look like 2 different sizes... my areolas are 2 different sizes. I have an indentation where the drains were. My husband told me I look like Frankenstein lol! Im sure I will need a revision, but I will my insurance cover it? I feel guilty enough for getting this done!! ugh
