Tummy Tuck Separation

Wound Care

I had my tummy tuck on the 23rd of September so I am 1 month post op today and my incision has been dealing with some separation issues. I am just looking for a second opinion and any ideas or things I should know to help promote healing, my surgeon is on the opposite side of the country and I cannot afford to fly down right now so just looking for some immediate ideas and support. Thanks

Breast reduction

Breast Reduction

I did my breast reduction a week now. My best size was 34HH. Yes I have a small body naturally. My bread size appear smaller than I wanted. During the consultation I said I wanted about DDD. I'm reading the surgeons' responses and I'm terrified. I feel like I lost all of my beauty. I do not like small breasts. You said to wait 6 months to see if I like my new breast. I'll do that but I'm scared.

General Reconstruction

I would be very willing to share every bit of my story , if I were able to find a surgeon to help me. At this point, I have been turned down by every doctor I have ever reached out to. Trying to keep my hopes and spirits up. I belong to a support group for this and there are so many people who have the same request as I do. I thank the dr that has recently tried to help me find someone.

Life saving plastic surgery (bilateral masectomy + nipple graft)

Body Masculinization

I received top surgery from Dr. Samuel Lien in WA and am so thankful I did. Dr. Lien is a kind, skilled surgeon with an eye for anatomy and understanding of diverse body shapes. His bedside manor made me feel respected, safe and comfortable; he was good with my pronouns and is LGBTQ+ friendly too. I feel confident, thrilled with the results and love my chest now!!

The Miseducation of Plastic Surgery

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

Watch Drs. Karen Horton and Jamie Moenster debunk the myths. Plastic surgery isn't always scarless (but we know where to hide and treat them). It isn't vain (taking care of yourself never is). It isn't fake (you'll look like yourself, just refreshed).
