Thank you for the question but you will find that online consultants will not be able to be very helpful to you. It sounds like you need to spend more time with your plastic surgeon  gaining an understanding of the planned procedure,  timing of the planned procedure and any other issues/questions that you may have.

 I would suggest that you call your plastic surgeon's office and request this additional time.

 Best wishes for a long term outcome that you are very pleased with.
