Plastic Surgery -it ain’t pretty 

attention – graphic surgical pic ahead , leave now if you don’t like this kinda stuff 
As you all know , I am 5 years post op bypass revision , I lost a ton of weight and I had a tummy tuck to get rid of excess skin. Well that tuck left me with “dog ears” which are basically little floppy pieces of skin where the cuts end on hip to hip scars. 

   
   
Are they a big deal? Kind of because they are visible and stick out which makes me uncomfortable . My plastic surgeon is amazing and my tuck scar blended nicely so I knew we had to fix this . 

I went in yesterday for what I thought was just a little freezing and a nip and tuck – 2 hours later and a whole lotta stitches later I left bandaged up 

   
 
I had no idea the extent of the incision until tonight when I was able to shower , remove the dressings and check it out – HERE COMES THE GROSS PICS – LOOK AWAY NOW if you don’t like stitches 

   
 
These pics don really do it justice by the right hip incision is 5 inches and the left is 4.5 . 

I feel great and will not run until I feel 100% and am looking great to just modified workouts . 

12 days and the stitches come out .
