He’d Like Me To Powder My Nipples

As I left for Santa Barbara last week I stopped along the way for a boob check with my plastic surgeon.  For my new readers, I had breast reduction surgery last June at the urging of my shoulder/orthopedic surgeon.  If you're a new reader I'll just have to sum up the whole story like this:  Car Accident.

Anyway, last week was my final "post-surgery" check-up.  I'm slightly disappointed because I love the plastic surgeon's office.  The people who work there are so nice.  The people who come in as patients are so fun to write about.  I'd like to hang out there entirely for writing purposes.

I had to wait around for quite awhile because the doc was in a "consult" with a new patient and "it lasted a lot longer than expected."  Do you know what that means?  It means someone made an appointment to come in for a nose job and really wanted to ask about having their entire body nipped and tucked.  

Fine.  I hung out and talked with the staff while I waited.

Eventually I found myself bare chested in front of the doc.  He looked at me and smiled and said, "You're a very interesting person."

Okaaaaaaaaay …?

I'm glad he thinks so, I guess.

Maybe he could mention it to my family?

Perhaps I could even cover up my boobs while we discuss it?

Doc is very interested in my writing.  He's also very interested in the Internet.  He's also very interested in marketing his practice on the Internet.

Let's leave it at that for now.

In any case, he suggested I begin powdering my breasts with this:

This is a sunscreen powder with a SPF rating of 30.  The rays of the sun can go right through clothing.  (I already knew this due to my very scary run in with melanoma a few years back.)  The doc informed me I should powder my breasts with this each day to prevent scars from forming on the thin surgical lines he left behind.  

What lines?  They're pretty much gone already!

The sun's rays can really increase scarring though and I have enough scars on my body already without adding to them. 

I love the idea of a powder sunscreen.  It isn't sticky.  It isn't greasy.  I don't feel like I have sunscreen on.  It's water resistant.  I used it on my face, neck, and yes, breasts when I was in Santa Barbara.  It works.  I'm fair skinned and I didn't get the least bit sunburned with it on.

For those of you who are interested, it's made by Colorescience and I think it needs to be purchased through a doctor (dermatologist or plastic surgeon).

However, the sunscreen is really not the point of my story.  (Forgive me for getting sidetracked, but it's kind of a cool product.)

The point is, the doc wants me to powder my breasts each morning.

My breasts with my now bionic nipples.

My bionic, hyper-sensitive, send-me-over-the-edge-into-total-ecstasy nipples will be interacting with this brush every day.

Do you suppose I should send my doctor a thank you note?

    Not only is this really interesting and enlightening, but I got a little excited at the thought of using this product. Does that make me sketchy and weird?

    I’m not gonna lie, this post was way less sexual than the title led me to believe.. and I was slightly disappointed until you started talking about your bionic, hyper-sensitive nipples. Haha, but yes.. this powder sunscreen is a good idea.

    Wonder Twins! i like that one. LOL. You crack me up with these posts. This one literally made me laugh out at my desk.
    Bare Escentuals sells powder sunscreen in a brush too. I own it and it works great. And you can buy it in skin tones so it doubles as a face powder. Anyway, just thought youd like to know. It’s SPF 30 too.

    *sigh* Again, I am plunged into the depths of envious despair, confronted with your bionic, hyper-sensitive, send-me-over-the-edge-into-total-ecstasy nipples.
    Well, considering what you’ve been through, I believe you deserve SOME sort of compensation.
    But…damn.
    Just…damn.

    I think you need to transfer the Torturer’s name to this guy.
    And I want some of that! It’s kind of like a turkey baster, isn’t it?

    I haven’t really read about your Dr and your breast reducing experience too much yet, and I must go back and do that : ) I just know you had oodles of great stories to share. And man, oh man! I love a great story : )
    Nipple brushing? Not so much : )

    Just a teeny-tiny question. I guess it’s the scientist in me that just needs to know — how did they get to be super-sensative? Does breast reduction do that?
