I also was surprised at the lack of discomfort. The only pain I had was a HUGE headache…the surgery was long. I believe that was from the anesthesia. Even the very wide incision across my belly where they harvest the skin (and some blubber…lol) from was pain free. I thought for sure it would be a lot more difficult than it was. Of course having the perfect doctor (plastic surgeon) helped. I went into this confident that the outcome would be great and it is.

I had this done in 2000, called tram flap surgery then. Also had a reduction on the remaining breat. They must do it differently now. My pain was terrible.
