Yep. Today is the day. I am getting my scar revision!!
While I have been enjoying my new tummy, I've felt that it wasn't quite perfect.
It has some puffy parts down by the scar. And the scar is waaaay higher on my right than it is on my left. It's so high that it sticks up out of my pants, and creates a weird little one sided muffin top. So NOT attractive!! It also makes it impossible to wear a bikini!! And we can't be having that!!! How am I supposed to prance around in a bikini with that chunk stickin up out of it??
See? You can see that the skin above the scar puffs out. It shouldn't. It should lay flat and be all pretty.
See how the right side of my scar is definitely higher than the left? And you can see the folds it makes. It's really weird. And that extra little chunk of skin barely has any feeling.
Actually, I don't have a lot of feeling at all on my stomach. It's fine. I'm used to it, I lost most feeling anyways when the twins stretched my skin so thin.
So, anyways.... Luckily my plastic surgeon (Who is a doll!! I just LOVE her!) wants perfection as much as I do! And she will be fixing all this for me today.
The surgery should take about an hour. I wont have to have drains this time. YAY! And I can go straight home. We won't have to stay the night anywhere. (My plastic surgeon is 2 hours away from me.) My doctor assures me that this recovery isn't anything like the 1st one. (Thank God!!) She said it should take about 2 weeks to heal and then I will have a perfect tummy!!
I'll take pics and post them as soon as I can! Let's hope I'm not as dopey this time around as I was last time.... Be on the lookout for loopy Tweets!
