After a Loooong Wait I Know I Made the Right Decision - Denver, CO
When I initially went in for my first consultation...
Feeling and looking MUCH better
Where I'm at...
In my opinion the scars aren't red but very ragged looking- which I am assuming was in part because of my adhesive allergy. So if I did get the dog ears fixed in the future I don't know how they would keep the wound closed.
I like them better than before. They are a more appropriate size and the shape is good aside from the dog tags. I hate the dog tags but fear more horrid visible scars.
My nipples are asymmetrical too. One sags down and one is round. So ya.... They are better in ways but not at all what I imagined. :-/
I'm definitely going to get a consult for laser scar removal to see if I'm a candidate. I suppose as some point when I have the $ (16,000 for this procedure has left me a little strapped) I will talk with Dr.'s about the dog ears. Good luck to all the women on this journey .
After a huge delay following my first scheduled appointment with Dr. Squires he was patient and accommodating even 14 months later. I had a lift and fat transfer done December 2nd 2015 (just yesterday as I write this review) I had two implants from another Dr who originally talked me into implants I did not want , and then a very poor experience with Dr. Swail in Boulder I was refreshed by the attention to detail the ENTIRE office and operation staff exhibited. From displaying large images of my dream breasts in the OR, lavender aromatherapy as I went under, and honoring my "little as possible" ideas when it came to narcotics. The did a tape test over a week prior and we discovered I was allergic to everything outside of the ioban ... this would have saved me weeks of suffering had Dr. Swail had that test in place for my explant. I know its only the first day but I think the incisions look great. I have been on real self for over a year and have seen the progression of healing- and since I take such great care of myself I believe in the best outcomes! I will keep you all updated with pictures! Thank you Dr. Squires for listening to my desires and using your artistic skill set to deliver. I can't wait to see where I am at in 6 months!
