So I said I needed to show the #fatgrafting
as its healing, and honestly this stressed me more than sharing anything else to do with my #prophylacticmastectomy
We have this idea that #liposuction
leaves the patient like super pretty and smooth. Well. I did. I’m learning still I guess. I’m kind of hardheaded and slow on the uptake sometimes.
And I am fairly smooth. It just also kinda hollows you out. And, when combined with a nearly thirty (!!!!!) pound weight loss, there’s some something I don’t love because it’s totally new ground for me.
Yes. I’ve had four kids. Yes. I’m nearly forty years old. Yes I’ve had four c-sections.
None of that is something my brain wants to party with so seeing something I didn’t anticipate and have never dealt with is an adjustment.
Next session we will probably use the same site. I dunno. I assume so. I trust him and his judgment.
I’m not UNhappy by any stretch I’m just...adjusting.
Also - yay for a cute bra! But it did highlight how much my right #foob
is looking forward to her date with new cushion.
Dr. Nichols and the folks @mmspearlplasticsurgery
have been AMAZING dealing with my neurotic tendencies, and I’m absolutely thrilled that Dr. Tollefson (my #mastectomy
surgeon) told me to meet with Dr. Nichols. He’s done a great job of keeping my natural hard charging personality reined in a bit. Though I’m pretty sure when I leave he has to 🤦♂️💆♂️🙇♂️ for a minute or ten 😂
