Acne breakouts 3 and a half weeks post op



Recommended Posts

Ugh. I saw this video of this girl on youtube. She was saying post-op how shes been breaking out with lots of acne. But all the youtubers were commenting underneath saying no thats not true bla bla bla. So I was not worried much about it. This past week I have been having breakouts all over my forhead and my chin and sides. And I am someone who has never ever suffered acne!!! Has anything similiar happened to you guys?

Please keep us updated, I had my first cystic acne flare right after my first baby and it return when I least wanted it. I haven't had any since my surgery but I'm sure it's waiting in the wings, maybe when I meet with my congressman or another inconvenient time. And yes I do know my congressman, no big whoop, he's not even a chairman of any commited. Just just a waste of space individual like many others.

no - in fact, that's the first time I've heard anyone mention it. But having the surgery can screw up your hormone balance the first few weeks (some people have mood issues - or menstrual issues - at least at first), so maybe it's related to that? Or it could just be coincidental, too.

I would put it down to consequence but I am just not someone who ever broke out at all. Not even during my periods. I really do believe its what tou said about the first few weeks our hormonal balances are completely out of control with the surgery. I hope it is a temporary situation because I miss my clear skin 😣😣

Maybe it's just your germ resistance was down and the natural skin flora attacked you, maybe a minute skin hole, once it got in , it was " Hello Sailor" and you were reaping the whirlwind, don't know if there is a difinative answer for it all!

I am totally expecting a massive acne breakout since i have to stop my birth control for 2 months. And when I talked to my GYN she said that since estrogen is stored in the fat layer just under your skin there are all kinds of hormonal things that can or will happen. So I am expecting all kinds of nonsense.
