Had ffs with Di Maggio 9 months ago
« on: April 19, 2018, 01:57:05 am »
Sorry, it's been awhile so I don't have my original screen name, I think I deleted it.  Anyway, I figure if anyone is interested in an update and the post surgery healing, here it is.

Sensation - other than the top of my head and the sides of my face near the ears, most of the sensation returned.  The biggest issue is that it feels like all the wires are crossed and when I scratch my eye, I might feel it on my forehead, etc.

Healing - the scars are mostly invisible but some of the biggest scars are in areas that are not so obvious such as the back of the ear and neck/head area.  There seems to be some thick scar tissues that feels kinda eck...

Swelling - most of the swelling is gone but I still have swelling in my nose and cheeks, especially in the morning.  I find that a light jog and a bit of sweat will usually get rid of some of the swelling temporarily.

Pain - pretty much zero pain but there is an area near my left ear where slightly pulling around or near it causes extreme sharp pain.  It feels almost like they left a weird piece of something in there.  I haven't gotten it checked out yet but I will soon.

Overall satisfaction - I will probably say that I'm around a 8.0 in satisfaction.  The middle of my forhead has a slight divot that is visible in certain light and even though they did a great job with the bridge and top of the nose, they didn't touch the nose tip and I will probably get specialized rhinoplasty for it.

Hello justarandomname2, welcome (or welcome back) to Susan's.  Since this was your first post with this account I'll provide navigational links and site requirements.

Things that you should read


I think your previous account was Justarandomname without the "2" added.  A previous FFS post from that account is here: Recently had ffs and just wanted to share my experience (please correct me if that wasn't your post).

All links need to follow Susan's guidelines provided above, and Imgur is showing your links as invalid.  Also the Imgur links you provided last year do not work.

Hi Kendra!

Yes, that was me.  Sorry, I posted the pictures and took it down since I feel like the photo came out pretty ugly but here it is anyway.  I took this on my webcam.  I don't have any make up on and the lighting is bad (that's my excuse, lol)

Wow you look amazing, girl!  I had ffs back feb 14 2017, so a little over 1 year 2 months.  I still have numbness lower left jaw and my ears are poking me daily (some numb there too).   Top of head healed amazingly fast.

I think you look great :) Glad it turned out so well for you.  I too am at a 8.0 for Dr. Cardenas.  Overall improvement though from 'before'.  Before I just looked sorta.. meh. Ugly?  Just not good. Now I do.

Thank you Doreen, glad that you are happy with your ffs!  If I may ask, how take you to notice all of the swelling finally going down?  I feel like I still have a bit of swelling in certain areas.

8 months to a year for it to be almost all gone.  I still have some annoying racoony bruising around the eyes though.  The jaw was the worst part, it was sore forever.. still is tender.

Thank you V M, I'm a bit too shy to post my photos up in the "You Look Fabulous Darling" thread so I'll have to hide in my corner and let everyone else be fab! =)

Wow!  An amazing change - you look great!

Wow, I never had any bruising or pain past the first month but the swelling and lack of sensation is annoying.
