The healing process continues and it’s been nearly 3 years since my chest surgery with Dr. Brownstein. The scars continue to fade. Photos were taken on 9 May, 2011.

Over a year later…

Here are a few pics taken about 1 year and 2 months after my chest surgery. (Click on each photo for larger view.)

Below are pictures taken on June 7, 2009 – approximately 9 months ago. I got spray-tanned for a Vegas trip! I still put a lot of sunscreen on the scars to be safe and kept a tanktop on when I was sitting out in the sun. It’s best to stay out of direct sunlight for 6-12 months after surgery. I will always put sunscreen on the scars because I definitely don’t want them to get darker.

Below are chest pics taken on March 20. 2009. Not to be too gross, but you can see an ingrown hair in one of the nipple close-ups. (It was in my right nipple for several days and then worked itself out.)
