I am one week post op from fat transfer to both...

I am one week post op from fat transfer to both buttocks and breasts. After having my implants removed a year and a half ago I started to consider fat transfer to the breasts. I actually quite liked my breasts after explantation; they were just a little deflated looking at the top. What bothered me more was the fat on my inner thighs and knees. I tried for a long time to accept myself and was able to feel good about myself as a whole, but I was unable to genuinely feel sexy. (Which is pretty sad; don't even get me started on how terrible our culture is for making women need to hack themselves up to feel sexy.)

So, eventually, even though my husband (and I) are pretty against plastic surgery, I decided to have lipo and figured I might as well use the fat. My butt and breasts were both starting to sag so I had my doctor put some fat in both areas.

9 days post op

The right breast is higher because there is a lot of fat necrosis in the breast and I think it's keeping it from falling and softening like the left one has. Plus the left one already drooped a bit more than the right. Massing the lumpiness and doing occasional warm compresses and hoping those lumps soften up and that I don't end up with totally different looking breasts. :/ My legs don't look much different at this point but there is a lot of swelling so I know they will look thinner in time.

Four weeks post op

I meant to post at three weeks but I had family in town so it just didn't happen. The lumpiness in my breast is softening and they are much better matched now. They are exactky the size I want them to be now, so I am hoping I keep most of what I have! Soooo happy with my results. The pics I take are really unflattering lol, I look pretty freakin hot in person! Haha. Going to do a lot of squats now to help fill up some of my looser skin. It's not super loose or anything but I think it would be better if I built some bigger muscles there. So I did some squats this morning! Feeling almost back to normal. At two weeks I felt a lot better. Those first two weeks were absolute he'll trying not to let on either my boobs or my butt. Sorry I still haven't shaved yet since before the surgery in my pics. Taking care of that today! Lol.

Lumps and unevenness

Two years after seeing her one of my breasts is smaller than the other and they both have hard lumps of fat necrosis. I dread the day I start having mammograms and the confusion those lumps will cause. Also, the fat died on my right butt cheek so I was left with a lopsided butt too. Her technique has not been perfected. Likely because she is not a board certified plastic surgeon. I went on to have BBL done by a board certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills and was much more satisfied with his work. None of the fat he transferred got lumpy or died.

Dr. Jane Chung is not a board certified plastic surgeon. Her technique caused much of the fat to either reabsorb or cause lumps.
