3 Months Post-Op Progress Pics!

Hello! Hello!

I can't believe it's been three months! I had a tummy tuck with lipo, and a breast lift with small augmentation on 7/21. My progress has been going great. My tummy tuck...I'm just over the moon with. My breasts...still haven't fully dropped.

My doctor and I both thought I may have to have a small in-office procedure to address one side of my tummy sticking out more than the other (tuck it in a bit more). Well, the good news is that it has completely corrected itself! My scar is a lot smoother now and (though still red), feeling just like normal skin now.

My breasts are a bit slower to progress and I am wondering if maybe my implant may have been too small. My amazing awesome doctor also has an in-office way to correct it (all free of course) if it doesn't fix itself by 6 months. I'm hoping (if my tummy is any indicator) it's just taking my body longer than normal to get my results.

Everything is going really well. I'm just really now hoping the feeling in my nipples returns at some point. They're pretty much numb now but I have hears it can sometimes take a year or more for those nerves to rebuild. Any post BA/BL ladies can provide insight if you lost nipple sensation, how long it took to gain back?

Now, without further ado, my most recent progress pics. Don't mind the shapewear indents as usual. Also (I know I say this like every update) but can I say how much I LOVE my waist AND am so happy that when he pulled my tummy up, he basically completely got rid of my saggy inner thighs!

With undies. Scar completely hidden. Kept my natural belly button!!! Who knew it existed under all that loose skin?

Another to showcase my scar. Totally flat - just still red. I'm very fair skinned so this is to be expected for a while. :P Breast scars are becoming more and more invisible.

Thank you! Shopping is amazing! I can't believe I don't have to consider my belly bulge and can wear tight clothes and tucked in shirts! I'm going broke shopping! Hahaha! ;)

You must be so thrilled with your tummy! It looks awesome. Especially when you were concerned immediately post-op! Woo!

And your breast scars are looking superb. Sorry about the weird not dropping thing. That must be a bit annoying for bras right now. But it'll get sorted out it sounds like. Either with time or tweaking!

Thank you! I am really hoping it does correct itself. They did tell me it takes up to 6 months for a full result and it definitely seems I'm in the "slow but steady" camp.

I absolutely love my tummy. I didn't think it was possible for it to look how it does (and for my waist-line to be as-defined) without a fleur-de-lis, but my surgeon did an amazing job. You can actually even see ab muscles in the pics (kinda, sorta!).

I have my breast surgery next Friday, I was very pleased to see that your scars are practically gone. How did you post your pictures? I've been trying to post pictures of my TT. You look great. Did you have implants? I'm looking forward to my surgery.

Good luck with your upcoming surgery!!! He made the incisions on my breasts so super thin that they are definitely starting to fade 3 months out. I did opt to have very small implants but in (I think like 250ccs in one and 285ccs in the other - to even out asymetry), because I wanted to remain a larger size, without looking like a capital letter "P." I was advised without implants I would be a small C. Getting the little ones in, then keeping the rest of my breast tissue has me in a Victoria's Secret 34DDD.

I had to add the photos to my Photo Album first, then do the "Add Photo" link above the text box. Can't wait to see your pics!!

You don't look like a 34DDD, you look smaller. Are you happy with your size. I'm a 40C, I'm hoping for smaller. Thank you for your best wishes. I'm s little nervous. ?
