I first met Dr. Ku when I got my mommy makeover...
The staff in the office are so polite and informative, they truly are great, they helped make my experience wonderful. The surgery went smooth, I healed so quickly and well. I really think that is in part to the fact that Dr Ku is so involved in the recovery. He followed up so frequently and took care of my wounds early on to make sure that the recovery was clean and smooth.
I think Dr. Ku is the best plastic surgeon.. Not only in the inland empire, but in southern California. ( And I went to consultations in San Diego county, Orange County and in Beverly Hills)
More about my thighs...
When I went in to Dr. Ku for my thighs he addressed my concern of having the typical thigh scar (vertical down the inner thigh). I did not want that, I have young kids and I wanted to feel comfortable taking them to the beach etc. So he suggested that we can do it more in the groin area. I was so excited, and knowing the outcomes of my mommy makeover I knew he would be able to deliver the results I wanted.
After surgery I had three drains. One for each thigh and then one for my mons pubis fix. I did not feel any pain really after waking up, just soreness, but nothing like getting my abs sewed back together.
The hardest part about the recovery was keeping the inner thigh inicions in the groin dry. When you have to urinate and sit on the toilet the urine tends to touch or get on the bandages there, making it difiicult. My solution was to stand pee in the shower and rinse it down the shower and use baby wipes.. It worked out well. I also used sanitary napkins or maxi pads to cover my incisions instead of the bandages they sent me home with. I personally feel like the maxi pads wick out the moisture better (that's what pads are known for!) and help to keep it dry in that area. Also the long over night pads really helped me change them quickly and frequently helping with keeping the area clean.
I was sealed up quickly and at my 10 day check up the doctor said I was healing quickly and really well.
It has been about 4 weeks now, I feel pretty good, the only thing I noticed is that if I am on my feet for a long time or moving around a lot I need to wear a spanx or garment like that (the shorts kind) or I get swollen and a little sore.
I am really excited to see what I feel like in another month. I will keep the post posted!
Dr. Ku is suck a great doctor, I took my mom along with me when I was getting my consults and followups, and she thought he was just as great as I did. She fully trusted hi to take care of me, her daughter.. And she can't wait to become a patient too.
