Tattoo’s are healing well. Feb. 25, 2017. Week 17 Day 117

My tattoo’s are healing nicely.  Since there is no feeling I can not tell if they are itching.  Some of the tattoo flaked off the first night so I probably will have to have them touched up but I am so happy with the results.  18 weeks ago I would have never thought that I would be so pleased with the results.  I catch myself looking at them and forgetting that they are not my original breasts.  My new girls are wonderful.

I will have the rest of stage 2 hopefully the middle of June.  Just a little off the side, remove the wound scar and lipo the missplaced fat on my tummy.

I do hope that this blog has helped others who are going through this same procedure or thinking of it.  If you are around the Dallas, Ft Worth area I would highly recommend Dr Jennifer Snow and the wonderful Dr Nabil Habash.  I could not have had a better team.

Well enough gushing about all of this.  The pictures below show several days of the tattoo healing.  Next week I will post the totally healed girls and probably not post again until the middle of June.  Not much changes right now so I will sign off for now.  Thank you everyone who has been keeping up with this blog or just looking at it by chance.

Wound is all healed. Jan 17, 2017. Week 12 Day 78

All of my wounds are all healed.  I have been in Florida visiting my daughter and I have not been able to post.  It is nice to not have the twice a day routine to care for my wounds.   I have an appt. today to be released for work.  It will be nice to get back to work.  I have missed it.  I find out today when I get my 3D tattoos and when exactly stage 2 will take place.  I will post pictures tonight.

I am released to go back to work or at least take my physical and lift the required 55 lbs in order to go back to work.  So excited.  I do not think that I will be a good retired person.  I did not like staying at home.  I missed working.  Maybe being healthy and able to do things when I retire will make it better.  Well I have 5 more years to think about retiring so things could change.  Dr Habash would still like to do a stage 2 revision this summer.  I will point out on one of the photos below the things he would like to do to make the new girls look better, my stomach also.

I get my 3D tattoos on Feb 15 and I am looking forward to it so they will actually look like breasts.  The feel of them is unbelievable.  I can not tell the difference at all between the original and the new ones.  Of course the new ones are smaller and with the stage 2 revision they will be smaller on the sides also.  My stomach will be lipo-suctioned so my stomach will be more uniform.  My small FUPA will also be gone.  I wish I had known about this gene years ago and I would have had this done at a younger age.

So excited to be heading to the last leg of this journey.  It has all been worth it, even the wound care.  I think about the wound and why it happened.  I hope because I have blogged about it, other people going through it can realize that it is only a temporary set back on the road to recovery.

I am posting the wound care photos at the end, in the date order from my last post, to show the progress of healing.

I will not be posting until the day before the tattoos, Feb. 15, 2017,  There should not be any changes between now and then.

Have a great day and if there are any comments please post them.

The 2nd stage procedure on my breasts will be the removal of the side fat on both breasts and a small uplift on both, which will remove the scar from the wounds and also make them more rounded.

Below are the wound pictures from Jan 6 to Jan 17. There are quite a few, but I wanted to show the actual healing process.
