Hi guys ,

New to the forum ( posting anyway ) been lurking for quite some time now lol

I had my op 15 days ago with Dr. Karidis all went very well and I'm very happy

But the last few days ( maybe since vest off through the day ). I feel I've got "slightly" moobie ? No nipple area just don't seem as tight ?

Is this common / normal ? I'm sure it is but I just wanna hear it

Swelling is normal and will slowly subside in the coming months. It can take up to a year sometimes to see the final result.

Also, I would wear your compression vest 24/7 for a month, but that's just me.
My surgery was done on Oct 20th, 2014 by Dr. J. Craig Fielding in Toronto, Ontario.

Welcome to the forum.

Did your Seragen tell you to take off the vest? Because I don't think I would go ahead and take the vest off without being advised to do so by two surgeon. As the other member mentioned earlier, it can take between six months to one year to see the final results. Just be patient.

Post some before and after pics if you don't mind.

Thanks for the replys guys

Sorry let me explain I will wear the vest for 4weeks but my surgeon says 24/7 for 2weeks then a further 2weeks day or night and I've chose night time as for me it's not a problem sleeping with it and I'd prefer the freedom through the day
