5 Days Post Op - Worried
« on: June 06, 2007, 06:27:18 PM »
Hey Yall,  First time poster, long time lurker.  Just wanted to say thanks to everyone here.  The advice and insight from everyone is what made me take the leap. 

I had surgery this past Friday.  Healing quite well i suppose, no real pain to speak of.  One thing is bothering me is what i can only describe as an indentation.  Right above my left nipple there's like a crease that doesn't exist on my right side.  I'm worried is some kind of caving that i'm going to have to get revised (NOOOO!!!).  I added some pics and its kind of hard to see but let me know what you think.  I appear to be still quite swollen (I am only 5 days post-op)

Was this Lipo Only?

Lipo is when they only suck out fatty tissue. They do not cut around your areola and I don't see any scars at all or cuts for that matter. Looks like you didn't get excision. You probably will need a revision. Just expect some improvement from this operation, not perfection. I've learned this myself through 2 ops and support from the guys on this forum. Just don't go crazy with the revisions, you may end up with a worse off situation. That's my 2 cents..Good luck. By the way, I see a little crease but that might just be from the compression vest.

I see a little crease too but looks like a combination of compression vest and swelling that may be the culprit.

I'm not a doctor but I think you've simply got a slight pitted edema. It will even out over time. Judge it again after a few more weeks.

What was your reason not to get excision..?

9 days post op should i be worried?
