Am I Healing ok? TT & BR

Hi, I am three weeks PO today and I realize people heal differently, however mine just seems to look terrible. Every time I go in I am re assured that this happens, it looks worse than it is, it will heal fine and flatten out, it will look great, your doing wonderful!! I?m just really hoping these PA?s (yes I haven?t seen the Dr since the surgery at all) aren?t just good cheerleaders.
A friend of mine knows her plastic surgeon well and messaged him the photos and he said to call and demand a wound vac. Now I feel stuck in a ethical struggle about weather to show I don?t trust them by doing so or by standing by my doctor and his team who I choose because they were highly recommended.
Could you weigh in on my dilemma please? Thank you!
