Plastic surgery last Thursday



Recommended Posts

So, been awhile since I’ve been on... happy to report everything is good (3 1/2 years out)

Can’t believe I actually did it.... but last week had my eyes fixed up (excess skin on eyelids and bags under eyes) and extra skin on my neck removed. Sorry, can’t remmeber official procedure names.... 3 hour surgery, all good.... never took a pain pill

How long should I expect to look normal? Well, like I didn’t have surgery. Ha

i have little swelling, stictches out Wednesday which is cool. But the incision on my neck is pretty obvious right now

Thanks!

@CTJohn

good for you!! glad you didn't experience any pain.

betcha you look great.

i had my neck done last year - the scar was very

noticeable. dr. gave me free samples of "meladerma" (msp) to

use daily (x2) very thin line to start with - within 10

days line was was basically invisible!! really!! kept using the

"Meladerma" for a while (2-3weeks) looks terrific!

our famous saying on the board in "we are all Different" what

ever you use, you'll look as terrific as me!!:D

btw i have thought of doing my eyes too. who knows,

maybe next year!

good luck

kathy

congrats

Thank you for your well wishes!

I had originally gone for eyes - the extra skin made my lids droopy and I always looked tired. Dr said both could be done at the same time.

Btw. Of course, insurance didn’t cover it, I didn’t even ask Lucky enough to be able to private pay. I asked doc if he could do anything on price since I was doing eyes and neck, and he did eyes for half price. Doesn’t hurt to ask!

I'm getting my eyes done and insurance is picking that up since it will improve my vision. The bags will be on me since that is considered cosmetic. I asked the doc if he could do anything on the price of the bags and he said no. (5K) Glad to see your doctor worked with you. I'm sure you'll look and feel better.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
