I was told everything goes. My tragus is old so there wasn't an issue with leaving it open. I had a vc filter put in the day before. I planned to go to the piercers to have my tragus taken out when I left the hospital, but they wouldn't even do the filter with the tragus still in. A nurse removed it for me. She did a good job, except the hoop got bent. When I went to the piercers to get the tragus put back in a month later I ended up buying new jewelry.

I was able to leave mine in and tape over them. Just 3 lobe piercings both sides, and an industrial on the right which I put hoops in so nothing would snag the ends.

That one you might...it would be up to the anesthesiologist and nurses. But it should go back in when you wake up easily enough

Oh no!! I didn't even think of having to take out my piercings!! I'll have to go get my septum piercing out because its hard for me to get it out myself.

Ugh! I'll have to go to the piercing place to get the one in my ear out then I guess cuz I can't get it out on my own.

Yes, they all have to be removed. I had to take off my engagement ring. Good thing I took all my piercing out a few years ago lol

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
