terrible scars after long awaited lift- 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 .
Don’t know how to change 5star review I left B4. Got a lift, lipo and fat transfer. Said I had adhesive allergies, he tested several adhesives on me before he surgery - including dermabond - I reacted to them ALL - he used dermabond anyway- horrible scarring. Spent 3k on Laser to decrease scars over the last two years. Look at my profile to see how Freddy-Crugar-ish I looked right after. He offered to take care of dog ears but said it would only lengthen the scar towards my sternum. No thanks. I feel self conscious every time I get undressed in front of my husband - 16k for that? He never asked to take “after” pictures. Obviously my results weren’t good promotion for his portfolio.
