Count down to surgery #2


In about 12 hours I’ll be heading to the hospital to check in for my implant surgery and fat grafting procedure.  As you can see from the picture below, the expanders are crooked and boxy.  It feels like there are baseballs under my skin, that’s how hard they are in some places.

Here is a close up to see why fat grafting is necessary.

The fat will help create a slope, and hide my bones.  It’s unnatural to see half your ribs when you aren’t flat chested!  And there is a pretty big divot on the right side below my collar-bone.

Finally, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  This is not a cosmetic procedure.  It is reconstruction to try to create a natural looking breast, not an enhanced breast.  My chest now consists of two gigantic scars, so anyone who thinks I’m getting a free boob job can seriously just piss off after looking at this picture below.
