Explant with Lollipop Lift - Toronto, ON

Hi ladies, Im 3 days po from having my 265cc over...

Hi ladies, Im 3 days po from having my 265cc over the muscle cohesive gels removed and a lollipop lift was also performed.
The pain has been more than I expected, but I'm taking percocet every 4 hours and it's manageable. I was waiting 6 hours and tried to cut my perc in half, well, I don't recommend that! You heal better when you are comfortable.
This compression sports bra is digging into my shoulders and is really uncomfy! I've taken a peek and my boobs are nice and perky, but I'm definitely afraid as to the nightmare I can't see under the dressings. I get to shower today! Yaaaay! Which may be difficult bc I can't lift my arms above my head. May need my husband for that. How the heck am I going to brush my hair too? It's long, and so far it's been in a bun on top of my head.
Anyway, day 3 much better than day 2. I slept through the night, which makes all the difference in the world. I'd just like to say, that I look so much better without my huge 34 DD's. I've missed my B's. My follow up appt is Wed, and I think the bandages come off *eeeeek*

1week po

Hi ladies,
Still having pain and napping in the afternoon. I'm hoping to be back to my normal routine soon.
My po appt went really well! I was afraid to look down when the tape dressings were changed, but I did and they look so good! Bruised and still a bit swollen but not raw hamburgery from the lift like I thought. I'm so glad I did this.

Hey, I'm doing pretty good. I still have throbbing pain in my left and swelling. I get my stitches out thurs. I have tape-like dressing covering my incisions so I have no idea how it looks right now. At my 1 week po I saw them and I was in awe at how well everything is healing. I hate this sports bra and I want to burn it! Lol I feel much lighter and look so much better without my huge boobs! No regrets!

Thanks so much! I also downsized before my explant. I'm really happy I actually took the plunge. I'm very sore right now, I must've over done it.

Im sure your sore and surgery takes a toll on one's body! I always get easily tired after surgery, take plenty of naps and no lifting!!! You really do look great!! High tight perky boobs I know you love them!!!

Congrats on your explant. There's no way I could return to work 1 week po. I'm still pretty sore 5 days po. I go back to the dr tomorrow for my follow up. Hopefully I'll be able to take Advil. I hate narcotics.

I had that lift when I had my BA and it was painful for the first few days. You should start feeling better soon. I actually went back to work at day 10 and felt ok just tired. Glad you're happy with the explant tho.

I've tapered the Percocet to 1/2 a tab every 6-7 hours. Though right now I'm feeling quite uncomfy. I did feel much better today though. :)

Congrats on getting explanted!

How did the shower go? Did you feel a millions times better afterwards?

Thanks! The shower was lovely! However, I was so exhausted afterwards, I fell asleep on the couch for 2 hours.
