Show and Tell

 

This post is strictly photos showing the compression binder and at the very bottom of the post is the final result immediately after the binder was removed.  (6 days post surgery)  Please be aware that the last photo does show the nipple graphs and the incisions although the incisions are  covered with surgical tape.

This is the effects of the binder on Laine’s skin.  This photo was taken after I had been holding the elastic up off of him, allowing his skin to breathe for aprox. 10 minutes.  I could only give him this reprieve in certain areas of his back of course, as to not compromise his front chest area.   IMG_2625

 

The Big Reveal.  This photo was taken only moments after the compression binder and the gauze were removed.  You can still see the Dr.’s markings on his skin and slight swelling and bruising.  The tape will fall off within 2 weeks and the nipples will heal within 2-3 weeks.  IMG_2629

  1. What a success! I’m so proud of Laine and the courage to get what he wants in life. Every day with the support of your loving peeps and family, you will get there and get what you have planned as a lifetime goal. Congrats!
