    How long till our new boobs feel natural?

    I don't think so. I think what Viv meant is that when someone hugs you hard, it kind of pushes your boob back into your chest, and because it is an implant not super squishy breast tissue, you can feel it. (It might also be because many girls have super sensitive or numb nipples after BA too). I think the person with the BA would feel it, but the person doing the hugging wouldn't. (Source: I just tried to hug myself and it felt normal in my arms to hug me, but I felt the hug in my boobs - both the implant and my super sensitive nipple...LOL :-))

    Thank you all heaps for being such good support. I feel a bit bad for venting all of that - so, thankyou for just understanding. Xoxoxoxooxox. (And also understanding my partially illiterate midnight post. I had a proper teary-meltdown, which I think used the rest of my energy for the day because I passed out after. I also woke up with no pain this morning (YAY!). My husband was hovering ready to help me up, he had a coffee already made for me, and was collecting the mountain of tissues I'd surrounded myself with the night before. I feel fortunate to have him - but also part of me feels cranky because I like to do things on my own, and don't like it when people fuss over me. But yes, I should just enjoy it. Some people pay money for this type of thing! :-p I love him. Now there are just two nights to get through before the drains are gone! And only 4 days until I should be allowed to drive again - independence! Thanks again, girls. You are all wonderful! Xoxoxoxox

    BA tomorrow!

    So my BA is tomorrow with Dr Kevin Ho from the breast clinic, and I'm so excited! I think I have everything ready for when I get back to the hotel. Me and my sister's surgeries are tomorrow in the afternoon so I'm not looking forward to being hungry all day at the conduct today he suggested that I get 290cc which I'm pretty happy about. I didn't want to get really big boobs because I'm really thin (163cm, 48kg) so he said this should take me up to a generous C cup, yay! I originally wanted to end up with Ds, but he said I would look too fake and top heavy so I trust his judgement. We decided on textured anatomicals, which was what I thought I'd be getting so at least I was right about something! He said that when I woke up i would be in my post op bra as well as a white band around the top of my chest which will prevent the implants from turning while they healed, which is something I don't think other girls had to do. I have to keep the band on for 2 weeks 24/7, has anyone else had to do this and how did you hide the band under clothes? Yay so excited

    Feeling grumpy!

    I'm about 7 weeks post op now and I'm still in a bit of pain. Every now and then my incisions and muscles around the incisions ache and I'm still so cautious with every day activities. I'm starting to get so exhausted and it's really getting me down! Still have to sleep on my back and I haven't had a full sleep since before surgery which I think is adding to the emotions. One boobs being stubborn, it's smaller and still squarish and I'm starting to get boob greed! Thinking maybe I should have gone bigger. Apart from all the complaining I really am so happy with them. They are pretty amazing and I'm so inlove, I'm just exhausted and getting over the dull but constant pain. How long until you felt completely normal again? I feel like my first few weeks were a lot easier. I hate being negative and I really do love my girls and appreciate what I've got and how easy I've had it compared to some, but it does feel good to vent sometimes and I haven't vented for a while. Hope everyone is doing well!

    I am 2 weeks from having my BA and when I walked my kids into school this morning, I realised that I didn't even think about the size of my chest. I have gone from a AA cup to a C cup so a big change for me. When I have been out with the kids, or ducked to the shops, I have been quietly stressing if I bumped into anybody I knew and if they would say anything. I know that sounds silly but I am a bit private about things! Anyway, my breasts are still healing but I am beginning to accept they are a part of me now. I think it all takes time.

    I think there's far more risk of coming to harm from watching some non-qualified person's youtube video than following a surgeon's instructions! :-)

    I would probably be very careful not to go outside what your surgeon recommends, if you want increased cleavage then discuss it with your surgeon prior to surgery, they should be able to help you get your desired look (as long as it's within reason). Personally, I certainly would not want to risk the time, money and all else invested into my new boobies, or possible complications - you mentioned uniboob, I imagine it would increase the risk of it too- on a video I watched on youtube.

    How to 'lift' your bum?

    I've noticed my butt heading south too. I did the 30 day squat challenge and just that had my butt looking better. It is just using own body weight but you get up to 250 squats and a good burn. Does get very boring though. I'm waiting for our finance to recover from the BA expense to get the gym membership happening again.

    How to 'lift' your bum?

    If it's not hurting its not working lol Ur muscles need to rip and repair themselves with protein in Ur diet for them to grown and hence look toned

    How to 'lift' your bum?

    Nope you need the weights/resistance to build muscle. And doing it every day doesn't help, your muscles grow while they are recovering not while you are actually doing the exercises, so you should be going heavy then having 2 or 3 days between leg/bum days. i do lower body twice a week. I do a lot of what Mrs- B posted. I do a few variations of squats too. Also single leg dead lifts are good (if you have the balance lol) and donkey kicks with ankle weights.

    Youthful skin. Best procedures?

    Noooooo stay away from Sculptra, Radiesse, Aquamid any of those semi/perm fillers..... I would start with incorporating a Vit C & E cream in the morning and a Retinol (vit A) at night. Regular micros and peels to keep your skin in condition and when you're ready Botox as preventative

    Last year, after a long time researching breast augmentation and consulting with a number of well reputable surgeons, I went through with my first breast augmentation with Craig Rubinstein. My consult with him and his nurse were really thorough which is ultimately why I went with him. I will note, unbeknown to me prior to my consults (because I think I had a good rack, albeit small and deflated from exercise), I had a small amount of droop and one nipple was a little lower than the other. But three surgeons all told me I didn’t need a lift. I ended up getting my implants completely under the muscle, crease incision. As expected after being aware Craig’s work normally takes a bit longer to drop, my implants sat very high and square for a while after surgery, which I was initially fine with because I understood things take time. However as the months went on, there was only a small amount of movement downwards, but not nearly enough. I expressed my concern at the 3-6 month time points, to be told that they were perfect and to wait until 12 months before we would consider doing anything. It was a pretty tough time for me, I was upset that I had spent so much money and was embarrassed to show off my result when everyone else I knew had gotten a nice result. Having to wait 12 months was frustrating to say the least. Anyway, at my 12 month appointment I was feeling pretty defeated and felt like maybe I just had bad boobs and I would never get great boobs. At this stage my main problem was that I had around 80% of my implant above the nipple and 20% below, I didn’t even feel like there was any implant below my nipple and my nipples pointed down. Above my nipple was not a natural slope at all, it was very square. It also looked like my nipples had slipped off my boob, and when I lent forward my boobs were triangles and not round with the implant sitting tight against my chest and my tissue just hanging off it the implant. I was told they were perfect again, and then we discussed what options I had after I made it very clear my result was really upsetting me and that I didn’t want to wait any longer for things to settle and drop down. It wasn’t really clear what my best option was, and how much improvement I could get. But Craig did say that he would fix it, this is not in doubt. However I wasn’t feeling very confident going ahead again without seeking further opinions, so I consulted with Mark Ashton. The difference in processes between the two clinics is a huge contrast. Automatically there was acknowledgement that something was not right, which was really validating because up until then I felt like a whinger always having to say what I felt was not right rather than have someone say yep I can see what you mean. Instead of me having to verbalise what I specifically didn’t like which is what had always happened prior to seeing Mark, Mark suggested what the problem was straight away (which was spot on) and said that he could fix it and if he didn’t get it perfect first time he would keep trying until he did. I booked surgery right then and there, I just felt completely safe and validated for how I had been feeling for the 14 months prior to that. Karen in reception was fantastic and worked me into surgery as soon as she could so that we could sort it all out. Come surgery day, I got taken away for surgery around 2:45pm, and the nurse suggested I would probably be back in a couple hours. I met Mark in the pre op room, who drew me up and took some photos and said he would try and lower my fold around 1cm each side and again reassured me that he would fix me. The anaesthesiologist came and put my cannula in, and then I got wheeled into the room and was out like a light very soon after. I am pretty sure I woke in recovery shaking because I was freezing (vague foggy memory of that, may not be correct though) Stayed in there for a while, and then was wheeled back into my room where I was greeted by my loved ones. It was now night time, and by the time I got back into my room it was 6:30pm so surgery went a fair bit longer than the nurse indicated it would. I had drains in both breasts as well which I was not expecting for a revision, and they had to be emptied a few times. Straight away you could see a substantial difference in the appearance of them, even though Mark told me the next morning not to worry yet they still need time to settle and will continue to improve. I saw his nurse a week later to change my dressings, and then saw him at the 2 and 4 week time point. When I went into the office following surgery for my first post-op time point the receptionists were asking how I was feeling because Mark had to do some extra work to get the implants to sit nicely, and said I would be feeling pretty sore. Which, I certainly was, but it was managed with panadol and a cheeky panadeine forte a couple of times. Mark said my implants were initially completely under the muscle, so he switched to a dual plane placement and released everything, lowered both my folds, and also performed a capsulectomy. He kept the same implants. At the two week time point, I was thrilled with my result but Mark wasn’t because they weren’t perfect (his words!!) so he put me in the strap which I had to wear religiously for two weeks to push one implant down and suggested a small benelli may be called for if at the 4 weeks post-op time point my nipples weren’t even. The strap seemed to have worked, because at the 4 week post-op time point things were much better so we ditched the strap to avoid making the other implant drop too much and then letting things settle for a month to see if we should use the strap to try and push the higher implant down 4mm. I am now around 6 weeks post-op and back to my regular activities and loving my new job, my nipples are in the middle of my boobs not falling off my boobs, and my boobs seem bigger now that I have implant and my breast tissue in the same spot! I also have a natural slope above my nipple. Mistakes happen and things can sometimes not settle as expected because we are dealing with human bodies, but it’s how you fix the less than desirable situation and how you treat people that matters. I am so glad that I have gone through this revision and finally have the result I wanted to begin with!

    Feeling grumpy!

    Funnily enough my lump side has been trouble free! And that's the side we were most worried about! It's slightly bigger but always has been. I was told at my last app my opposite side had to have a pocket created and so I think that's why it's mucking up more. Hopefully it doesn't take too much longer to behave because I don't want to have it manually fixed I don't think it's that bad anyways Aw thankyou! :)

    *don't get me wrong, mine don't feel soft, or 'natural feeling' yet - they just feel like they're in their right place. Like despite the emotions and occasional discomfort I've taken ownership of them already :-)
  24. 1 point
    For me it's something that just happens over time. Every now and then I still catch myself in the edge of a mirror or bump them and it takes me a second to realise. They had softened a lot and for the most part then feel very natural.

    Vivian I whole heartedly agree. I cant yet lay flat on my stomach as they feel odd and too firm. They are not nearly as soft as I expected them to be. Im 4 months post op. Dont get me wrong I wouldn't trade them for anything. They dont feel foreign but I definitely know they are there at times.

    Do I wait?

    3 weeks is still so early post op there could be lot of changes still to come! My personal experience was they didn't fill out to size until around 6 weeks and then even after that keep changing. That said, if you feel that you'd benefit from talking to your surgeon then by all means call him! He probably already has an idea of what results you should expect so may be able to reassure you or confirm they aren't going to change from now (though I think they probably are still changing!)

    I agree with rockmelonmumma. Way too risky to go against your surgeons advise. If this was a good solution for more cleavage then your ps would already be telling you to do it not some random in YouTube.

    I just asked my ps this one and he said that yes even though the swelling disappears with the settling of the implant you more inclined to notice that they appear bigger and I defiantly won't loose any size during the healing process.

Wish I had lost the last couple of kilos before surgery. If I get a quiet moment in the next few days I'll take my before shots. Funny how I'm ok with sharing my pics on this forum yet I'd be devastated if anyone I knew saw them eeek!

    Have a read of my post from yesterday - Rubie's boobies - 12 weeks post op. I could bow down to him for the rest of my life LOL - super, super happy He did hubby's lower blepharoplasty (ie lower eyelids) the week after he did my boobs - we thought it looked shocking at the start, thinking that he must have only been a boob man, but his eyes came good around the same time as my boobs, and he couldn't be happier with his results either. Good luck with your TT, and make sure you let us know how you go xx

    How to 'lift' your bum?

    In order to do lunges and squats you must work the other muscles in your legs not just your bum so yes Ur leg muscles will also tone up. But you won't get get muscly big like a guy would unless Ur taking supplements. Women dont have enough testosterone to create a big muscly body so in order to look toned u also need cardio to lose body fat percentage. So that's y I say lift as hard as u can because no matter how hard u go Ur not going to look bulky..

    Rhinoplasty surgery advice!!!

    Hi Kat I am based in Sydney and think I am using Dr Pincock who is based here. I am having a consult in a few weeks but all the feedback I've seen is great, as well as speaking directly to a couple of his patients who are all really happy. I am going to have the following bits and bobs for after my surgery and at home, that you might want to take with you: Clothes that open to the front (not over the head) for after surgery...or that you can pull up from your legs - so you can avoid your face/nose Some people swear by Electromagnetic patch (Google Actipatch) Ice/heat packs (ice initially then warm compresses) Snacks (Nail Polish remover - you will need clear nails for the anesthetist) Arnica Vit C Bromlain Pillow/bed wedge to help keep me from rolling/upright during the initial healing phase Some good make up to help cover the black eyes Don't forget to check with your surgeon about any nasal douching etc and if you need to supply anything yourself That's it for now but I will see if there is anything to add
