Recommended Posts

How soon could you shave your pits/use deodorant after an arm lift? How soon could you resume arm exercises?

Bonus: no Hair growth in arm pit region post surgery. Ditto clean lines following LBL and thigh lift in pubic region where hair does grow up to incision line. Arms - no hair. This was expected for me. As for deodorant - 3 weeks As I do not use anti-perspirant I can not speak to that. 🌼🌼

Whoops - arm exercise was 6 weeks to prevent pulling on skin and increasing scar - arm skin is sooo thin. Also I use the silicone scar tape rather than a topical cream. For about 5 months. Arm scars were the ones I hoped to minimize.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
