So the stitches came out today, which is great. The first thing the doctor said to me was, "Feeling lighter since we removed nearly 2kg off your chest?"

And yes, actually I am. :-)

I need to keep wearing surgical tape over the wounds for the next 6 weeks, which is when the next checkup is due, but they're feeling much less Frankenboobish. I'll take a pic of them in the raw sometime next week, when I need to replace the tape (each application lasts about a week - I just shower over the top of it).

The only minor thing is that I still have slightly lumpy areas under my arms where they did the liposuction. Apparently I have fairly tough subcutaneous tissue (that wasn't quite the way the doctor put it), and it doesn't drain fluid as readily as usual. The lumps aren't spongy; they're more that tight feeling you get when you've banged something and it's come up in a bump. Apparently they'll resolve themselves over the ensuing weeks.

I also got about $1500 back from Medicare for the treatment, and a few hundred bucks from my health insurance - my insurance only covers hospital stays, so anything I got was just fine. Also, it's apparently over some threshold where I can claim it on my tax this year as well. Seriously, WTF?, but I'm not going to quibble. :-)
