The stitches came out yesterday on my back flexEM install, and the (slight) swelling is gone. Now I’m touching this thing and I can feel it as if I was touching it through the pastic baggie it came in: I can feel all the features on its surface very well. And when I fold the skin around the edge, it sticks out very visibly and the skin forms a thin white edge.
My installer specifically told me he had “installed it as close to the surface as possible to prevent migration in the fat of my back”. Well he sure wasn’t kidding: It really is very close. It’s fine and all, but I’m wondering if you can install an implant so shallow that it will get rejected at some point, or something else would make it inviable there in the long-term. I doubt my body would manage to eject something as large as a flexEM without some major skin drama, but I’m curious all the same.
