“Alright… It’s still early days but a lot of you have been asking to see my progress so I thought I would do an update.
164cm tall, 59kg weight (now less 1kg
200gm of skin from each breast and 600gm from stomach. My surgeon was Dr Angkana
I was supposed to have a breast reduction and lift but only needed the lift as I had so much excess skin. Just removing the skin was estimated to reduce me three to four cup sizes.
Extended tummy tuck which I was initially quoted for lipo on upper abdo and love handles but that wasn’t needed as there was no fat there to take. It was suggested during my consult to perhaps add on a mons lift but looking at myself I’m glad I declined as I don’t think I needed it.
I was up and walking the day after surgery and the second day I was allowed to leave the ward (but not the hospital).
Emotions ran high today – day 2 post op – but overall I feel I’m doing really well and that my recovery will be smooth. I’m loving my new body and I’m looking forward to my breasts settling into their new shape. What do they say? Drop and fluff? Or does that only apply to an augmentation?
I’ve been in compression garments already to help reduce the swelling. The binder is uncomfortable, the bra is fine. I’m hoping the bodysuit will be much nicer than the binder. I have feeling in one nipple already, yay! The other is numb and so is my belly. I can’t wait to have the drains out!!
Any questions, please ask!” – Laura
