5 weeks!!

Today im exactly 5 weeks im doing very well with still some swelling and a bit of soreness but doing great!!..I wore a bathing suit yesterday and I felt kind of weird but I loved scars are doing great also most of it looks like a scrath but on the sides I dide have some puckering but with the silicone strips they have almost totally flattened out it just looksva bit darker but im only 5 weeks so im pretty sure the will lighten up a bit. Hope everyone is doing well!! By the way I dont think my boobs look to big at all im very happy how they go with my body.

Doing very well

Thank you luvmy3js I love my new body very happy I actually had the chance to do this!! I see many woman that have the incision kind of high and mines is not all all you can only see it from the sides the rest if the scar looks like a scratch so that makes me even happier..yes I still wear the binder but just at night and my sports bras 27/7
