  1. Past hour
  2. Today
  3. Thanks ladies, reassurance from others who have been through this is great. I actually didn’t look into what to expect after the procedure so I have been a bit worried, hearing it’s normal is awesome. I went for a small walk today and have been doing a few laps of the apartment. Im hoping I sleep better tonight. My youngest has come down with gastro so we are having to extend our time in the city. Sad I’m not there for him but also grateful for extra recovery time before heading home.
  4. @Renee369 I used to think I was as well but this site has shown me there's a lot like us out there! He recommended them two different stages because if he did it all in one then my nipples would stretch over the implants and become massive! So he decided to firstly reduce them and do a lift so that it all heals properly and then possibly 8 months later do the implants so it won't be all stretched and they will be a normal size. I haven't had my procedure yet and finances are all getting sorted still with the private health fund and such but at the moment it's around the same price that Dr Tav said to you. However just seeing Dr M's outcomes on his website, it makes me so happy to pay it rather than spending 10k at a normal place and not being happy at all with the results and then needing another one!
  5. Bummer about the TV! Oh the post op fluid was horrible, I had fluid from my collar bones all the way down to my pubic bone. If I touched my skin, I could feel it squelching it was so gross 🤢 I think mine was completely gone after 2 weeks.

    Headaches and dizziness post op

    Hi love this is all very normal after surgery, some people react better than others the numbness is also very normal and it will return in time but when i cannot tell you as its different fir everyone. At about 3 days i had some brusing come up and by day 5 it was half way down the sides of my ribcage i also had terrible bloat right down to my pubic bone all of which is very normal , if your not feeling to dizzy try to get up and move around bit and drink lots of water to help flush the bloat which is all the excess fluid they give you during the op.
  7. Hey lovely - your symptoms are totally normal. The dizziness, nausea and headache could be from your meds and the headache may be made worse from sleeping upright and strain on your neck - it really should not last long. The symptoms will pass, by day 6 or 7 you will start to feel human again. The stomach swelling is fluid retention and again will pass in a week or two. The no feeling in your boobs is also totally normal - your nerves have been severed, thus lack of feeling, they will regenerate and you will get "zingers" sort of little, sharp pains like electrical zips as the nerves regrow and reconnect and then feeling comes back in your boobs. It can be tough in the early days, but hang in there and I swear it will get better and you will feel far better by the end of the first week. Plus we are here whenever you need reassurance. love and hugs to you xo
  8. I had my ba on Tuesday afternoon and today I’m still feeling dizzy, nauseous and have a killer headache, I’m wondering if that’s normal at this stage of recovery. My stomach is really swollen with fluid also and I have next to no feeling on the lower half of my boobs and nipples. I was expecting pain and swelling around my chest but not these other symptoms. What other post op recovery symptoms can I expect and how long will the headaches last for? Happy to be on the other side but I didn’t appreciate what a experience it would be! 🙏

    Lets talk...

    Agree completely with the ladies above! Before and after pics definitely help with the low days. I havnt seen your pics but i believe mummak has exactly the right advice. When i look at before pics i realize how much bigger i am now!
  11. @BAM The bloating is horrible,,, I worked so hard to have a flat stomach before the op and didn’t realise the swelling would be like that. It will go down,, mine took about 10 days. I hated day 2-5 physically and emotionally but day 6 woke a different person (albeit tired from upright sleeping). I didn’t get good sleep until about day 17 when I could comfortably sleep on my side. Every journey is so different.
  12. Hello everyone, I am researching for Rhinoplasty surgeon in melbourne. I am Asian, my aim is to have higher bridge nose between my eyes. I have booked in a consultation with Dr Douglas McManamny. Does anyone here has any experience with rhinoplasty procedure? I would really hope hear your stories, experience and recommendation of surgeons, post op support. Thanks Heaps in advance xx
  13. @Mumma-K I wish I had some good tv action, I’m from out of town and our Airbnb only has regular tv - argh - I thought it had some Netflix or Fox when I booked it , tv has been limited to morning shows and house hunters 😳 nevermind. Did anyone else have fluid in their stomach? I haven’t bloated as such but my whole stomach has grown at least 2 sizes with fluid, it’s like jelly!!
  14. Aww hun, day 3 and 4 were the worst for me in the early days. The swelling is insane and that along with the bruising is so uncomfortable!! I did remain upright but only because it was comfortable for me. Sam told me on the day of surgery that getting sleep was more important than the position you sleep in so if you are more comfortable sleeping flat then I would. I didn’t get any side effects from the strong meds (except constipation 😫). Are you drinking enough water? Or the headache might be coming from your neck due to the sleeping position. Hang in there, you are in a difficult phase right now but it will get better! Get a really good show to watch and distract yourself. I binged watched A Handmaids Tale when I was recovering and it was really addictive. Totally took my mind off the discomfort xo

    Revision cost / Dr Tavakoli

    I know these guys are the best in the business but you wouldn’t think the prices would jump up so much with all the budget boob job places popping up...
  17. Wow today day 2 or is it 3 post op is quiet uncomfortable!! So much swelling and I have a headache, not sure if that’s the result of the painkillers or my upright sleeping position. Ladies who have been there done that, is it ok to sleep flatter and did tapendol give you any side effects? I was great yesterday the day after my surgery (it was moved forward a day) but today is less friendly 🤒😊 Thanks xx

    @Ss84 Sorry to hear how you feel about your boobs but honestly, they look awesome! Are you unhappy with the projection rather than size? Hopefully these feelings will go away as I believe it's a normal process emotionally and mentally no matter how many weeks, months it has been since surgery. Prior to surgery, it's just so hard to predict how your boobs will turn out afterwards. You either end up happy, not happy or inbetween. Can't win. If I was to ever feel like that, I would look back at my pre op photos which would make me feel a lot better knowing I have better boobs than before. Chin up hun, you're not alone with these feelings of doubt. In my eyes, they look fantastic on you

    Cleavage gap

    I can't help at all, but I'm curious! Why are you after the gap? To me, yours look FANTASTIC and are actually the exact look I want to go for. If you don't mind sharing what was your size pre-op and how many ccs did you go for?

    Lets talk...

    @Ss84 sorry to hear you are still so unhappy with your size, it’s so much to go through to be unsatisfied afterwards 😞 for what it’s worth, I think your boobs look absolutely gorgeous but I know that doesn’t mean much when you aren’t happy with them yourself. I’m early days (only 3 weeks PO) and I do have fleeting moments of ‘maybe I should have gone bigger’ but then I look at my before pics and realise how far I’ve actually come. For me, it’s really important to keep looking at these things in perspective - my preop boobs were completely flat and I was so so desperately unhappy with them. So I am thrilled to have new boobs! I love making before and after collages which really drives home how much better I look now! If you want to see the transformation, send me a FR. Sorry, I know this won’t help the girls wanting to go bigger but thought I’d share my perspective with the group. Who knows, I’ll probably go bigger when I’m due for a revision 😜

    BA + Lift with CosMediTour Australia

    Thanks for your response! @Ezza98 Its nice to know I’m not the only one out there with them haha. I just did some research on Dr. and his work looks to be great! Why did he recommend the lift and BA at different stages? I will get in contact with him/ his team and book in a consultation. Im also going to get my GP to have a look and see if they refer me to anyone in particular. Do you mind me asking how much the procedure was for you? Thanks!

    Oh hunny I'm sorry you feel this way, but your only 3 mpo and all the swelling has gone now so maybe give it a bit more time as you have only just begun to D&F , i know it's something that gets said quite a lot and it probably dosn't make you feel any better but fingers crossed that in another 6-12 wks they will fluff some more , just looked at your post op pics and i think they look great by the way. 😘

    Lets talk...

    I completely understand how you feel and as the other ladies have said, perhaps your friends are jealous?! Im 12 weeks post op and I'm so unhappy with the size of my boobs that I completely regret ever having them done. I feel like I've wasted 12k. I can't even discuss this with my hubby as he gets annoyed at the thought we'd spent this money and I'm not satisfied. We live and learn! Do what makes you happy and if getting a revision will do that, I say go for it!
