I had a call from my surgeon's insurance coordinator today. She told me that they have the authorization to perform the revision to my top surgery (performed last July). I had braced myself to have to put up a fight to get it covered so this was very welcome news. I think living in California really works in my favor regarding trans medical care.

Next step, my chart was handed off to the scheduler. Considering the times we are in now I am under no delusion that I will get scheduled very quickly. I'd be surprised if I get a date within the timeframe of this initial approval, probably will have to seek a renewal. At least I'm approved and I didn't have to do battle with the insurance company. Large victory!

Hi Perry,

That is absolutely fantabulous news!!! Congratulations!! Hopefully everything will go off without a hitch.

I didn't even know you were in need of a revision. Hopefully whatever is wrong doesn't cause you any pain, and won't cause you too many problems until they can get it fixed for you.

xoxo

Thanks Linde & Lexxi!

No pain [member=9]Lexxi[/member], this procedure will take care of the “dog ears” on the sides. Extra skin & tissue that he will excise and stitch back together. Just weird looking and feeling right now.

Happy for this victory, and for you Perry.
I like the steady tone when you post. 
No doubt you look forward to losing the weirdness you describe.

You are welcome Perry
Would those "dog ears" be the leftovers of the dreaded underarm fat, with which many women, including me, are fighting on a daily base?

Thank you Katie & Maddie!

Yes, Linde, that is exactly what the dog ears are.

Thanks, I think I hate them as much as you do.  At least one point in which us trans people are in the identical boat!

Glad to hear it Perry. I remember when you looking forward to having the surgery. Do they put you under? Is that necessary?

Thanks Moni!

Yep, my surgeon does it in the hospital or at a surgical center. I watched a Youtube animated video from a different surgeon. Procedure is to cut a football shaped incision, remove the extra and sew it back up. I've heard that surgeons can do them in the office with lipo if they are small and they have that set up in house. Mine are not so small, damn side boob!
