Gynecomastia & Lipo Thursday Sep 23

Gynecomastia & Lipo Thursday Sep 23

Postby LivingMyLife30 » Sun Sep 19, 2010 5:42 pm

I can't believe this Thursday I will finally be having the surgery I have long dreamed of. I am having treatment of bilateral gynecomastia, liposuction of the abdomen, bilateral flanks, bilateral medial thighs and the suprapubic area. I have both Stage I & II garments as my PS instructed me to purchase both. He said I will reach the 5,000 cc mark. I hope the results are what I am hoping for. I think 5,000 cc's is a lot, but I haven't found any pictures that give me the kind of result that will produce. I just can't wait. I think I will be so happy with the outcome. The PS and his staff have been so very wonderful. They really are great. Any tips on recovery or other experiences out there?

Hey LivingMyLife30!

Yesterday was the big day! How are you feeling? A bit groggy and sore?

Glad to hear that you have your garments are ready to go, that should help a lot with the swelling that will occur. There are a few others things you can do for yourself to make the recovery go a little bit more comfortably.

1) Get yourself propped up comfortably in your recovery place. As we know gravity pulls down, and you're having alot of surgery to your upper half. Make sure you are propped up in bed with either a bunch of pillows, or a wedge pillow like this one: Memory Foam Bed Wedge Pillow : http://bit.ly/ct4nej

At the very least, get some pillows so that the swelling goes downward and you can relax and still watch tv or read books while waiting to be fully mobile again.

2) Supplements to help with swelling and bruising like : Make Me Heal Plastic Surgery Healing Supplements & Vitamins - Post-Op Formula (w/Bromelain) - 30 Day This formula helps people such as yourself accelerate healing and obtain better cosmetic results following plastic surgery by providing all the vital healing supplements, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids that have been shown to be vital for recovery from surgery. You can check it out here: : http//bit.ly/aO7k7Y

3) Cold Compresses- Using cold compresses can help you with the discomfort or soreness you may feel, and also help the swelling go down. You can find a Cold & Hot Deluxe Compress (11"x14") can be found here: http://bit.ly/caKMyj

4) Worried about any scarring? You should check into a scar reduction cream or silicone sheeting to help minimize the appearance of the scars. Im not sure what kind of incisions you will have but silicone sheeting can great reduce the redness of the scar and help flatten it out so it flush with the skin. I'm going to direct you to our scar reduction store so you can check out the different shapes and sizes available. : http://www.makemeheal.com/mmh/product/s ... &catid=543

But I do have to mention that if you are looking for a a good scar cream, I'd have to suggest : Scar Esthetique Healing & Reduction Cream (w/Silicone, Arnica, Antioxidants, Copper Peptides, Co-Q10 which can be viewed here: http://bit.ly/8XqyCH

And last but not least.....make sure youve got everything to keep yourself occupied and connected whereever you are resting. By this, I mean, have your cell phone and charger near, the remote, books, snacks, water, medications, and numbers of people you need to keep in contact with!

I hope you have a great recovery! Please let us know how you are doing! Your posts are sure to help others! :)
