good luck man, i just had mine last week! im excited for the swelling to go down, but prepare yourself for that. first it looks great, then gets worse before it goes to what it'll look like when its normal. what are you having done?

Yes, me as well, my surgery was almost 2 years ago with Haugruud.  I had the surgery, then swelling in the right side and he had to reopend and remove material.  Then it swelled again and he had to remove fluid with a syringe about 3 times.  After about a year, there was still puffyness, so he said he could inject some cortisol which would break down the enzymes of the tissue.   This was the last procedure I had with him and my chest now looks really good.  It was a long process but Haugruud is a great doctor who really cares about your results and you being satisfied.
I just referred my brother to him as he had the surgery done about 5 years ago from another doctor who just gave him liposuction!!!  I just found this out recently and could not believe it-his gyno was much worse than mine and the idiot doctor just sucked out fat-did not cut out any breast tissue, which is why he is seeing Haugrud now.  I am just glad that he did not have to pay for that surgery.

hey titsrntcool.....thanks for posting!!  how long after your first surgery did you get your second? I have a feeling ill have to do a re-surgery as well. I had the fluid removed as well, just once a week after i took off the bandages.
can you explain how the cortisol injection worked? did you notice the scar tissue get flat right away?
how long do you have to wait to get cortisol injections?
did you notice any side effects at all?

sorry about the interview here lol, im just really curious about what to do next. Im not happy with the amount of scar tissue build up inside. I have my next consult with him in 6 days. Its now been 3 months post op

Thanks!!

Hi,

Is this something that is covered through Alberta Health Care?

Also do you need a referral to see these doctors or can you just call them up for a consulation?

Thanks for the info. I just found out about this stuff tonight, so I'm anxious to learn anything I can and hopefully get this done if it doesn't break the bank.
