Surgery went well!

I guess my plastic surgeon managed to achieve the desired look without using cadavier tissue. I say I guess because...

1. The nurses weren't sure and my mom said the dr. hadn't said anything to her about having to use it.
2. I haven't really had a good look yet to know if it was my desired look.

My restrictions for the next six weeks are no lifting, pushing, pulling anything heavier than 10 lbs. and no lifting my arm up above my head when getting dressed, so I don't pull the internal stitches out. Talk about annoying restrictions!

The absolute best part of the day was waking up in recovery and finding out she didn't put a drain in!!!!!! Hallelujah!!!!

Right now I am queasy, tired, and more sore than I had anticipated, but I'm sure it will get better soon.

Hope you enjoy the picture of me in my sexy postop bra! ;)

Erika's surgery went well too. Her plastic surgeon ended up only working on her scars and decided to wait another 3 months to do the hair transplant to make an eyebrow. I'm sure that must be frustrating for her, but it is better for the end result.

That's about it for an update. I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and tons of fun black friday shopping!


  1. I'm so glad it went well Beth! Take it easy and know we are all thinking about you!

  2. Thanks Christine. I slept a good bit today, so I am definitely resting.
