74. post op exchange pictures

i am so happy with my results so far. i feel like one of the lucky ones that says their outcomes from reconstruction is phenomenal. i always hoped for an amazing outcome, and i can't believe that i got it! and yet i can believe it, because i had such confidence in my plastic surgeon to do an amazing job!

you can see the potential in these photos despite the ugly drains (which are now out), scars, and bruising. i am so excited to see how the breasts will improve over the next few months as the healing and settling continues. in fact, these pics are already 4 days old, and there is already a remarkable improvement!!!


  1. Wow Rach they look amazing!! I am jealous how close together they are, mine have a space between them in the centre of my chest...I think its just because I am broad across the shoulders, and chest. But, that's ok!! I am very happy!
    But, your results are looking amazing, I cannot wait to see how things change in the months to come! :)

  2. Hi Rach. You look great. I am so happy for your outcome and I so proud of your bravado. This is a really big chapter in your life and it's now done. I'm so glad to hear that everything is falling in place in your life. This is your time girl! Enjoy every moment of it. Love you and can't wait to see you on the 19th. Love Tante Ali.

  3. Wow - I mean, really...WOW! Way back when I first found out I was BRCA1+ and I found out that I'd be having a double mastectomy, this sure isn't the image that came to my mind. I do wish my results had been as good as yours! Well, maybe after my next surgery - we'll have to get together and compare! heehee
    Congrats on being freaking done! Whewhoo!
