Hi Guys,
I had my surgery done last Wednesday (8 days ago) and all went well. I had lipo and excision done, surgery took around 3 hours so the Dr definitely took his time which I am happy with. So far I am extremely happy with the results even though I am just over a week post surgery.
Recovery has been mild, more uncomfortable than painful. Hardest part has been sleeping and getting use to the compression vest.
I have attached a few photos for you all. I would love to hear your thoughts on my results? I will update again once I get the stitches out and have a bare chest.

i Guys,

Now 10 days post op and I have noticed a crater on my left peck.. I won't lie I am freaking out big time. I know it's only early days and most of the feedback on here is to wait it out to see full results, however surely that isn't a good sign? Has anyone experienced this in the past and it has gone away? Would really appreciate some advise from someone whose been through it?

Your results look amazing.  My crater was visible immediately.  I'm wondering if maybe it's just a little scar tissue puckering in your situation.  Maybe it will break up a little and you wont have a crater.  Your pics look fantastic though!

Thanks Clder Mills,

Yes I believe I was freaking out for no reason, it is so early on and I don't believe it was a crater. I think it was from my compression garment and was very minimal. Can only bee seen in certain lighting.
I am still very happy with the results and I'm not stressing over slight imperfections this early on. I should be over the moon with the results this early!!

Thanks for the message, much appreciated.

David.

Hi David,
Your results look fantastic!
This gives me hope that I could some day also have surgery to take care of my gyno.
May I ask who was your Doctor/Surgeon?
Thanks,
Tom

Congrats on the surgery! Hope it all turns out well from here, it looks promising. Think you have a better idea of your results now that it's be a couple months. The one week mark is too premature to base your results, because it will change (did for me, at least).
