Pulling back the bandages

Here’s a look at one side of my new chest, four days post-op. It’s a little hard to tell what the final result will be judging from this. The tape is covering the stitches around my newly resized areola. The exposed area is quite swollen and is NOT the final size of my nipple. Rather, that’s the areola itself. The nipple size and shape won’t reveal itself until the swelling goes down. The healing is going really well, with very little bruising.

Off in an hour to get my drains taken out!! (Turns out there IS a doctor in today, so I don’t have to wait until tomorrow to get them out.)
