This is a procedure I have been looking into...
Less than 24 hours
8 days post op
Now that I'm 8 days post op. I noticed that there are sutures around the base of the nipple (making them look like gumballs, lol) and I actually can't find an incision mark. I think he went in at the tip, which is awesome because then there's no scar.
I tried to shower again at 8 days post op, I was fine until I had to clean the nipple... I'm not normally bothered by that kind of stuff. I guess because its on me it different.
I'll update again when the sutures have dissolved or there's a change in the way they look.
2 week post op
Also, I'm nervous to wear a bra and have pressure on them (even though I'm told its fine), so I used medula breast shells. I separated them and used the doom section over nipples in by bra to maintain a space there and keep them erect.
I've discovered that when I have to wipe away dead skin and actually look at how raw the nipple is, it makes me nauseous and light headed. Weird because I have a strong stomach.
The pain wasn't too bad. At times it was a moderate, pulling, aching pain. But mostly dull throbbing.
When I got cold and they became erect, I surprisingly didn't hurt. Which was good lol.
It doesn't hurt anymore which, so now I'm just waiting for it to heal more.
Dr. Brown answered every question I had about this procedure before and after it was done. He was very reassuring and even say me earlier than scheduled to make sure everything was healing well. I would recommend him to any one and I will be going back to him for any future procedures.
