Surgery Prep Electrolysis Experiences?

Recommended Posts

Beverly

Hi all,

 

I'm about to start electrolysis on the bottom surgery area, and the painful experience with my face does not give me comfort thinking about this down there. What were you post-op sisters' experiences like? Is it as much torture as the face? Did you apply numbing lotion beforehand? How many hours/sessions did you spend completing removal? What advise do you offer? It's not that I'm nervous about it. I just want to be prepared. Thanks.

Hi Beverly, here is my experience "down there". Everyone is different, so what worked for me may not apply to others, having said that, I was a patient of Dr Bowers, her wait queue was 18 months, I plucked the recommended areas for at least 2 years before  my GCS. This was ample time to see where I would need to repeat, and so forth, by the time I reached my date, I was clear, and Dr Bowers took care of what little may have been unseen and untouched by me, but I can tell you it worked ! I am 2 and a half years post op, with no issues down there. I consider myself one of the lucky ones. I had a very nice outcome, without electrolysis. Dr Bowers says "hair removal" is not required on her web page, each surgeon has their own recommendations however. That's my experience.

 

I hope you have successful outcome Beverly, that's what matters, getting to the other side and being happy with your results.

 

Hugs

I didn’t use anything. None of it hurt any more then the lip and chin area of the face. Also keep in mind that the surgeon performing your GCS will scrape out any remaining follicles during the procedure. So it isn’t 100% critical if you find it too painful.

Well I have never posted here until now, so with that I say Hi to all reading this post. I had a very different way of removing the hair  for my HRS ordeal with the High dollar doctors of Beverly Hills. My wondering of the hair removal were answered by me going to the office of my doctor and  laying down on a exaime table and turning my head and seeing a nurse bring in a tray with 12 needles all full of a Lidocaine  mixture to  numb all of the area down and around the penis and ball bag. Now if you don't think that's  enough to make  you want to get up and run Wow.! But after the first injection I felt no more of the next 11 shots after which I was lead to another room and  laid down legs spread and music videos on a 5foot TV screen above my head on the ceiling  with ear bubs having electrolysis for 4 hours now this was just another way some doctors do it here in Calif.  I had to go through this  4 times in 4 months once a month healing was a week but it wasn't bad at all mostly etching so this  was it. Now maybe I should  tell you i am 68 years old and 38 of these years I have lived as me a female with gender birth papers  to match so it's all worth it in the end hope you follow your heart and it will be OK.

My surgeon is one of those Beverly Hills Surgeons. This is exactly Dr Sinclair's MO and my response is when!!! 4 hours and done is way better than 2 hours a month.

Great info thank you.

      The movement has informed some of my work as well. Welcome. TA

      Welcome secondlook! You're among friends here! TA

      I'd like that. And could use an adventure for a change.   Jackie, that's funny about the pants, since I tend to spend much of my studio time in a t-shirt and panties.   TA

      It's a thought. But I'd really have to relocate to Maine. Although the West coast is also appealing. I spent 3 years in San Francisco. TA

      I am going to drop some hints to make sure he isn't playing with my heart. I might ask him this week or next week to have sushi like he wanted. (And it's cheap >:D)    Also I will keep you all posted!
    • ToniTone
      It seems pretty clear he likes you. And you like him. I agree with A Dillon, y'all should just try going out! Just a casual coffee or lunch. Take it slow, you know?   Anyway, this is too cute! Please keep us posted 💕   ~Toni
    • BEAN_CHILD
      wow thank you guys so much!
    • ToniTone
      Oooooo both y'alls poems are deep and brooding, and they have a nice flow. I love it!
    • luke_b
      same here as Aidan, friends are always welcome!
    • Aidan5
      Since here soon he is going to be moving near me, we plan on hanging at the park, he made me shake on it, how cute
    • Aidan5
      oH I forgot to mention!!!   On the bus ride we pass by a mall and he saw a Trappers, (A sushi place) and he asked me if I wanted to go there with him,  "That will be our first date."    ANd earlier he was saying "Haha when you joke around flirting because you are afraid of being rejected"
    • A. Dillon
      Listen: this is not hints, this is essentially asking you out. You should say something!! He is scheduling a kiss with you, kind of very much implying that you will be dating. Cuddling, hand holding, this all sounds like you're already dating! I think that maybe you should suggest going somewhere with him, like a date of sorts. That way you can get to know each other in a more open environment, and will really have a chance to talk about life and stuff. If your parents would let you, being able to just go to lunch with him alone or something like that would be great.

      Yea,i kind of like the movement,just the idea of having magic just casually appear as part of reality kind of fits my life as i am also schizoaffective,so its like a theme for me,plus whenever i think of the idea in film i think of my neighbor totoro which i also love, i dont know thats just how i understand it anyway from what little i know, so thanks tammy!
