Nips and Tuck

So the surgery went off without a hitch. I have knipples! Dare I say it was enjoyable? Well, maybe not enjoyable, but not stressful.

I had all of the same nurses, and anesthesiologist. It was like a cocktail party, except I was lying in a bed in a hideous hospital gown with no cocktail. There was lots of chatting and laughing as they bustled around me doing all of the pre-surgery stuff.

My surgeon came in and drew all over me with his purple marker. He put these stick on faux knipples and then said “Ok, go look and see if you like the placement.”

I had Peter come with me to be my “knipple consultant.”

Dr. B took a long half moon shape of skin from my belly to make the knipples and then gave me a little tummy tuck. BONUS! The scar is almost hip bone to hip bone. It’s crazy. Now, where there used to be that weird loose skin from having babies, it’s TAUT. I still have the stretch marks, but whatever. Hadley is pleased because she says I need the stretch marks to “prove” I had children. She did not want them to be gone. So sweet. I have told her in the past that I’m proud of them because they remind me how strong and powerful my body is to have carried two beautiful babies.

My boobs are all bandaged up and my whole chest is wrapped in saran wrap. It’s itchy as hell. I can shower tonight but the bandages don’t come off until Monday morning at my post op visit.

Here’s to a relaxing weekend and my last surgery being over!

A milestone - yay for the last surgery. I'm glad you have PGP - for knipple consulting and all else he does.
