Underarm caved in!

So I decided to attempt to shave my armpits today then quickly realized they were caved in and being used by my implants lol. I had to practically dig the shaving cream out! Decided not to put a razor anywhere in the 'armpit' cave! Anyone else had this happen?

I haven't had it happen and I'm sure everything is perfectly normal. I'm just dying laughing here imagining this big sunken armpit hole with an implant overtaken it. Not trying to make fun of your situation but I just have a funny mental image. I'm sure as soon as they drop you'll get your armpit back.

Yup, I'm always embarrassed of my progress pictures because of all the armpit hair that I can't get to. It's been eight weeks and no better....

Oh, yes, I had the same thing! It was so annoying because I shave every day; I hate that stubbly feeling. My armpits were so concave, I was afraid I was going to cut myself. I gave up shaving--for like a week. Drove me crazy, but I had no other choice!

I also figured, no one should be looking at my armpits, anyway!

Same here I always have stubbly armpits in my pictures. Loads of ladies say their armpits just totally disappear after surgery, it's normal and like everything else it gets better with time and patience HTH

LoL!!! Yes! Same problem here! But I have been shaving every day faithfully since Day 4 or else the stubble annoys the crap outta me.

I walk my hands up the shower wall & then prop the elbow of the arm you are shaving on the shower wall & get your razor and instead of shaving up and down, shave side to side, like into & out of the cave! Sometimes I miss hairs in the back of the 'cave' and I have to redo it again!

I've got the exact same problem. It's the strangest thing. The first time I tried to shave I couldn't figure out what the heck was going on. I should have known it's from my boobs that seem to have taken over every available surface near them. I hope it gets better.

I would love to receive a message with a FR. Thanks!

same here - no way would I attempt to use my razor on them!! I have a "body shaver" (for bikini area) thats battery and does NOT cut ever... so I used it - and even then would miss the "cave" area. I then had to borrow DH's small/narrow razor to get that part.

5 weeks PO was sized a 34DD (at 3 places, Nordstroms, VS and Dillards - all 3 said 34DD)
3 months PO - went back to Nordstroms and was sized a 34DDD

I let the PS decide during the surgery what will be best for my body! So happy he put in 550cc silicone under muscle

I have transax incisions with dissolvable sutures. Paperwork says it usually takes two weeks for them to dissolve so I will have a forrest growing before I get a razor any wear near my pits. Thankfully I waxed them a week before surgery so the hairs are at a minimum at this point.

Mine are the same! It is driving me nuts!! my mom thought it was weird because it didn't happen to her...hers are over the muscle though so maybe that makes a difference. I am glad you posted because I thought maybe my PS did something wrong...

HAHAHA! Yes I remember this. It was awful. I had my bf help me shave it but he was awful at it... I guess since guys don't have to shave there? It looked like someone did a hack job on my armpit hair for about a month. Now that my implants have settled in though I am able to finally reach it. Thank goodness!
