    Super Frustrated...

    I had surgery 2.5 years ago. Lost 130+ lbs and was doing great. Then came the Depo Shot....... The first two shots didn't seem to effect me the third one made me bloat immediately and gain 15 lbs without doing anything. I have been off them since June but my body is still not back to normal. Went to a hormone dr this week to see if he can fix. Super frustrating!

    Bras post lift

    The post op bra doesn't have a tag in it. They just asked me my band size and I woke up after surgery with it on. Sorry I'm not more help. Most plastic surgeons supply garment for immediately after surgery. They supplied me a binder for the 360 lift also.

    Bras post lift

    I had a lift two weeks ago. The doctor put me in a bra immediately after surgery. I was told to wear it until 1 week post op visit then I could go to Fruit of the Loom sports bra from Walmart with front eye and hook closure.

    Sex after 360 lift

    Thanks for the info. I'm 4 weeks tomorrow from 360 lift. And 2 weeks from boob lift as dr wouldn't do together. Didn't think about pulling on skin etc. great points. Lol maybe bf will have to wait another week or two. Maybe third base can work ????
  10. I'm almost 4 weeks post 360 lift. My normal jeans fit and can get in the tighter ones in my closet. Hoping when swelling goes down I go down a size.
  11. Set my dates for Dec 8th for 360 degree Tummy tuck and Dec 23rd for Breast Lift. Have questions about healing. Dr was really on me about VGS patients not eating enough and helaing poorly. So want tips on what anyone on here did to ensure you heal good. etc....

    Just a update. Got drains out from 360 lower body life. Then had boob lift yesterday. Never realized how much reaching for stuff pulls on your boobs. Ouch! Lol. Everything looks great. Soooooo happy.

    Went for post op check today. Things look good. Dr left drains in. He said when I only get 30ml out of them per day he will take them out.

    Got plastic surgery dates....

    doctor wouldnt do them at the same time. Said with the 360 lower lift I would have so much time in surgery. He wanted me to wait longer but with work I convinced him to do after two weeks.
  23. Do you see the new skinnier you? I go shopping and pick up a shirt and think "oh that looks too small" then I try it on and its big. How long did it take for your brain to catch up with your body? LOL

    Horseback riding post-op

    I had surgery at the end of April last year and was back exercising my barrel horse as soon as I could lift my saddle. I think it was 8 weeks before I could lift 40 lbs.
