Breast Lift + Autoaugmentation. Will it stay like this? :'(
Bariatric, Gastric Bypass, Weight Loss Surgery

I lost massive weight and had a Breast lift with autoaugmentation on March 28th. Surgeon had to make incisions to my sides because my breasts had loose skin there, below the armpits. The new shape of the breasts looks good, but I am horrified by the scars. I have experience with scars because I had a tt last year. I know that my scars get swollen, red, thick at first and the surrounding stretch marks get swollen and that eventually goes away, but the incisions on my sides have created folds on my armpits and back. This did not happen with my tt and I look pretty good now, after 11 months. I don't know if it will also subside and go down, back into place and flat. I am heartbroken, feeling like my surgeon mutilated me and I helped by making the decision to have this surgery. :cry: Please, help with advice! Anyone with experience, with similar skin after massive weight loss?

Here's a link to pictures of my recent surgery and of my tt before and after (for reference); please forgive my hairy armpits!! (can't shave for now): https://s1.postimg.org/3ures8wz3/comp.jpg
