2 Weeks Post-op
So it's been 2 weeks now. Pain is minimal on the breasts and belly. However, on my flanks where the lipo was done hurts pretty good. Swelling has really started to set in and in the evenings is much worse. I had the belly running suture removed this week at Dr. Byrd's office. They said everything looks good and the swelling is normal and should be half gone at the 3 month mark. I have to keep reminding my self of this because seeing the tummy right after surgery and now, there is quite a bit of difference. I feel like it's sticking out again. I just keep telling myself, "it's just the swelling," and try to stay away from salty foods.
Bust = 40" was 41.5"
Chest = 36.5" was 37"
Waist = 34" was 36"
Belly button = 34.5" was 39.25" WOW-WEE!!!!
Hips = 40" was 39.5" (?, swelling maybe)
Overall I am very happy and would do it again in a heartbeat! I have already bought a few new shirts and am thrilled that I can try on anything that I think is cute and not what I think will hide my belly. This is totally going to change the way I dress. I feel young and I want to dress young and hip!
I'll post more post-op pictures in another week or so. We will see how the swelling is...going down I hope!
