    2 week post op pic

    Because I can’t upload it to my avatar and am useless at technology I will post it here. 2 weeks post op today. Tried on my old bikini top. Size 16 from Target. Filling it out so much better with my new implants. Opinions - would the top be ok to wear in public with high waisted bikini bottoms? As I will be with my kids. I’m having so much trouble finding a more covered up option without underwire. Even the crop Top style options I liked yesterday had underwire in them.

    Anatomical concerns

    Hi Panda, have you you read any of my threads? I had 10 year old textured anatomical implants pain and swelling in left. Fluid was drained out twice and came back negative. I just had my implants replaced Tuesday to rounds. My surgeon wrote me an ultrasound referral without seeing me. If your surgeon won’t I’m sure your gp would be happy to write one and then depending on your results refer you either back to your original surgeon or to another. I had a little bit of capsular contracture in both breast as well as double capsule in both. My left had also rotated inwards.

    Please do not lift your little one if your post op instructions say not to. I have been doing nappy changes on the floor. At bath time my 6 year old carefully lifts her nearly 2 year old brother in and then out of the bath. For nap time could you get one of those kids fold out sofas? My boy is in a toddler bed as he was climbing out of his cot a few months ago and we were scared he could hurt himself. My instructions were nothing over 2kgs for 6 weeks. I’m 3.5 weeks post revision. I will be honest I have lifted my 12.5kg son when I’ve had no choice. We were alone and he climbs in and out of his car seat but he fell asleep and he was having trouble waking I tried but he was just too tired. Apart from that I’ve followed the rules. I’m not sure how old your kids are but is the older one able to help?

    Hey @MellieMoo There's a couple of threads on the forum re what to expect. Pre-op is fairly straightforward and your surgeon will advise what you need to do prior to arriving for your surgery. Post-op, pack your post-op bra and a button up loose fitting top and shorts or trackies to slip into. If you have long hair braid it as it might be a few days before you can wash your hair, unless your partner or a friend can help you. The surgeon will give you your post-op instructions and you need to follow them. They differ a bit from surgeon to surgeon. You can't lift anything for the first two weeks and definitely not a little one out of the cot. If your partner can't help, is there anyone else who can help you? Or get your little one to put their arms around your neck and legs around your waist, rather than you lifting them. Rest and recuperate and take it really easy and be gentle with yourself. Recovery differs from person to person. Some struggle and some cruise through. I was lucky to cruise through and I hope you do too :) Maybe have some pre-prepared meals you can take out of the freezer, it'll be hard to cut up veggies and things for a couple of weeks. You also can't lift your arms above your head for the first week or so. For me driving was out for the first week. In your other post you ask about what to say to your 4 year old. Not a lot really, just say mummy had an operation and they need to be gentle with you. They may not notice your boobs or they might - it's up to you how much you tell them. You could say mummy needed to get her boobs fixed after breastfeeding or something like that. Simple and not too complicated. Good luck with your surgery, we'll be thinking of you and keep us posted as to how you go xoxox

    Sports bra recommendations

    I like Berlie high impact sports bra for running it really holds the girls in place and for a bit of extra support i sometimes put a soft cup crop over the top if im doing HITT as for T shirt bras i can't go past the body bliss contour bras (Bras n Things ) they are so comfrey and come in a variety of colours ans they even have lacy options, i have one in every colour 😂

    Sizing ladies!

    Amazing! Very kind man and super confident with what he is talking about. Everything he recommended is what I was already thinking so felt confident with him ☺️ Thank you so much for the recommendation! I have no idea what breast size I am as I have barely anything and always felt too insecure to get sized professionally. I think almost a b cup but I emphasise the ALMOST part. I was wanting to go up to a D so that is exciting you got there with the same cc! Are you happy with the size? Anything you would suggest for picking the size/implant? I want to get more volume at the top of the breast, compact and good side profile. ☺️ Are you happy with the overall volume and profile with that size? I am almost a b cup and have minimum breast tissue to work with. 😊

    Sizing ladies!

    Hey @Sandy_ I have 375cc. However, I have anatomical, dual plane, moderate plus profile. So even though I have the same cc's that have been recommended for you, mine probably look quite different. It also depends on how much breast tissue you have to start with and your overall physical anatomy. I went from a 12AA to a 12DD.

    Recovery starts

    Oh and both had a bit of capsular contracture. I just got my first proper look an hour ago. The first thing I did in recovery was take a look and then keep sneaking looks. Then when I first got up for my first wee my surgical bra was put on so standing up I had only seen my boobs in the bra. They are perfect! I’m so pleased I just wish I wasn’t bloated so I had a flat tummy to go with my new boobs but my tummy will go down. While it was very sudden needing my revision in a hurry it went well, the pain has been managed well and I already love my results.

    Sports bra recommendations

    Funny I’ve just read the recommendations on sports bras. I went bra shopping and bought 2 x sexy lacy wirefree bras (I can’t believe sexy wirefree exists!). I tried on the Berlei sports bra (unsure which exact one) and it was incredible. I jumped up and down in the fitting room and my boobs didn’t go anywhere. Unfortunately it does have underwire in it and until I see my surgeon in January I’m not allowed to wear wired bras but once I’m cleared I will be buying it. I got 2 x Lorna Jane high neck bras which I wear over a crop. Fairly supportive for the treadmill, etc but looks like I’m not going to be running until mid January. Also if you are in Perth I highly recommend Hidden Lace in Subiaco. Yes a lot of the stuff is expensive $90 bras but the ones I chose were on sale for $39.95 each. They are very good at fitting. One of the bras I tried was not sitting in between my cleavage but on top of it. My fitter straight out said it wasn’t a good fit. They also sell post surgical bras for those who are pre op. That’s where I got mine.

    I'm with @I HaveBoobs on the Berlei sports bras, they are the best at keeping the girls in place with minimal/no movement. I run a lot, so needed a good sports bra or three!! I wore my compression bra at night for a bit longer than recommended, then swapped to crop tops. I still wear a crop bra/top to bed most nights as I like that little bit of support - I'm almost 2 years post-op

    I second the body bliss contour bras from bras n things! I recently bought one black and one beige. as for sports bras I just bought one from Lorna Jane.... one of their high impact crops (no underwire) kind of expensive but figured I’ve spent that much on them already why not invest in some good quality bras!

    @Cupcake85 wow your new boobies look amazing for 2 wpo, Dr Connell is a very talented surgeon. I think the bikini top looks great , enough covered but enough exposed 😘 if you know what I mean. As for high waisted bottoms hwve you tried Big W or K Mart or even Best N Less. I wandered into Cotton on the other day and tried a bathers crop top on and pissed myself laughing as it barley covered my nipples 😂 ( wish I'd taken a photo it was so funny) so safe to say Cotton on is definitely not designed for fake boobies 😂

    2 week post op pic

    Thank you for your kind words. I feel like in some clothes my boobs stand out as fake or even too big but I’m very happy regardless. It’s just weird how certain clothes can really change your look and how they can get lost in some things. I think mine still have a lot more changing to do but being a revision it “may” happen quicker because the pockets were already there. I was hoping for a crop style bikini top but all the ones I’ve seen have clip up backs so I’d need either an 8 or 10 which won’t cover properly or even worse squash and flatten me. Oh well. Will keep looking on eBay in the meantime so I can order separates.

    Wirefree bra help

    Sorry no suggestions for no underwire bras! I’ve just been measured at bra n things and wearing a 12E. 10F fit too but felt the band maybe a little tight and didn’t want to risk back fat in tight tops! Im actually a size 8 in most clothes but just broad around the ribs!! only bought 2 underwire t shirt bras (one black one beige) to start with.... but still wearing the post op bra around at home and to bed. My PS actually wants me to continue to wear the strap for another 6 weeks and I’m assuming that’s with the post op bra ( not underwire!?!) might msg him in the morning to double check cos he cleared me to wear bras and then in the last min of the consult said it’s probably a good idea to keep wearing the strap! I hate that bloody strap! I find the post op bras very comfortable but that strap isn’t!!

    Safest textured implants

    Thank you so much for replying, this is exactly what I thought , I don’t want to go completely smooth coz of those risks too , micro textured might be just what I’m looking for x

    Safest textured implants

    Hi and I hope you are still active. I haven’t been on the forum as often as I used to be so don’t always see things. I had a revision recently and I have Allergan/Natrelle micro textured rounds. The micro textured have not been linked to breast implant associated large cell lymphoma whereas the macro textured (which is what I previously had) have been linked. Not only do smooth implants have a higher risk of bottoming out there is a higher rate of capsular contracture also. I originally wanted to replace with smooth implants however I trust my plastic surgeon.

    Sizing ladies!

    Hey ladies, Just had my first consult today with Dr. kollias in Adelaide. He recommended me 375cc, round, high profile implants, dual plane. I liked the look too in my sports bra but have zero idea what they will look like nude. Anyone have similar sizing want to give me a look 😅 or what size did you get with pictures?

    Sizing ladies!

    Hi watergirl, I am sorry to hear you got breast implant illness. I have been investigating this. Even talked with my surgeon on the risks. I am finding it hard to really understand as the symptoms are very vague ( I could easily list several symptoms on the list that I have on and off due to my own hormone fluctuations ). I know tonnes of people who have implants for years with no issues. I know that in 10 years I will have to have a check and maybe another surgery anyway - so if there are health concerns i’ll take them out. Its easy to say do as I say, not what I do. Implants have been around for a long time and only in recent years with social media, people are doing their own anecdotal research. It’s just not enough for me to feel I shouldn’t get them. I am not getting textured as they have been proven to cause cancer by medical research. Thanks

    Update on fluid

    Hi and thanks for your comment. Everything went great and my recovery has been fairly easy with minimal discomfort. The only problem is I can’t stop spending money on new tops as there’s a sale on and I can’t help myself as the prices are so good and I keep finding cute things. Hubby and my wallets are going to be in trouble once I’m cleared for bras and bikinis.

    Hi @Sandy_ I got 385cc round, high profile, sub fascial with Kollias over two years ago. I was a 12C but following two children I was super-deflated! I’m a 12D and they’re a huge improvement on what I had prior however given my height 174cm and broad shoulders I def could’ve gone bigger. Kollias is quite conservative so i guess if you want bigger you’ll need to push a bit. He’s a great surgeon tho & there are plenty of Adelaide girls on who with good reviews. I don’t log on often but pretty sure there are pics on my profile.

    Phases of Healing following BA

    Hey Girls I found this info on another message board/forum and thought it would be helpful for those wondering what the healing process involves. I wish I had this earlier. I'm a little behind (probably due to my age). Don't take this as gospel, just a guide. Hope it helps Bec Phase 1. 0-3 Days Post Op - Soreness on sides, ribs, sternum, and maybe back muscles. Swelling, tightness, shiny skin. Square-boob/highness of implants. In/out of it depending on pain medication being taken. Sleep is best in recliner or with a wedge to avoid swelling overnight and back pain. Almost everyone needs to sleep on their back only. Phase 2. 3 Days - 2 Weeks - Moodiness (also related to meds). Sore to raise arms/reach/lift anything (follow PS instructions carefully to avoid Hematomas). Ribs/sternum/sides still sore and/or swollen. May have burning/itching feeling on breasts as nerves wake up. Still very difficult to sleep on sides without pain/discomfort. "Morning Boob" begins. Implants start to move a little, but still sit very high. Phase 3. 2 Weeks - 3 Weeks - Comfort setting in as soreness dissipates. Nipples very sensitive, swollen, hard. Sunburn feeling on breasts more common. May begin lifting/reaching but no overextending abilities (if it hurts, don't do it - as always, follow PS advice closely). "Morning Boob" continues. Most are wearing sports bras by now and may be wearing wireless already. Some people have massages, some don't - depends on PS. Shopping is awesome! First sizing will be larger than pre-op but not yet what size will prevail - be patient . D&F is starting but one will more than likely drop faster than the other. Also swelling will subside uneven as well, so one side may look larger than other side temporarily (besides normal, that is). LOTS of changes going on during this time in looks - don't panic! Phase 4. 3 Weeks - 6 Weeks - Boobs feel a lot more comfortable now. Soreness is almost gone, incisions look pink/purple and are a little raised. Implants are starting their descent and feel softer and move around more. Able to sleep on sides without much discomfort, although "Morning Boob" still evident (not as bad, though). May have soreness along sides, air bubbles, or other weird noises happening - these are generally OK. Activities return to normal. Phase 5. 6 Weeks - 3 Months - Most healing is done and tenderness gone away. Scar gels/creams can be used. Exercising can begin again. Probably being instructed by PS to wear wire bra now (maybe 24 hours at a time). D&F slows and gets to where it's going. Boobs look and feel great! Morning boob fades away and becomes non-existent. Dropping progresses much more noticeably now and fluffing begins. Bra sizes begin to change as well, so don't overindulge just yet. Exercise can resume as usual, although will notice different feelings when working on peck muscles. This discomfort may be strong, and you may wish to avoid it. Also, you may find that the space between breasts is more oily than in the past. Phase 6.3 - 6 Months - Fluffing continues but bra size shouldn't change much more. The softness will increase as will comfortability. The scar tissue is still dark, but softer and not as sore. Sleeping can be done in any comfortable position and any bra usually can be worn.

    Dr Michael Higgs Parkside cosmetic

    Hi Girls, I have also been left high and dry by Dr. Higgs from Parkside. So I got my lift & enlargement done, then a revision because the nipple placement and scars were pretty off. I was also left with one bigger boob than the other, which he was supposed to correct. I woke from the op discovering he hadn't corrected the size as 'it didn't look bad on the table'. After the second op, it was apparent that I needed a 2nd revision/3rd op. So this time he put in different stitches (purse) for a better result with my scars. The nipples were okish now, but instead of taking tissue to fix the size issue, he only took skin. So now I STILL have one boob at least a cup bigger than the other because skin stretches! - very noticeable with fake boobs! I am so limited with what I can wear and now my nipples have stretched really big. So I too discovered that Dr. Higgs was closing his doors. However, before I was aware of this, he agreed that I'd need ANOTHER surgery, but that I needed to wait about 6 months. Fast forward 6 months and I call the surgery to arrange something and I am told he is no longer operating. They send my notes to Waverley house, I sign a disclosure and then I am told that all surgeries, consults and whatever are now at my cost! I email Dr. Higgs to ask about his surgery/insurance/promise about revisions being covered by him and they send me the details to his lawyer :/ I am at a loss of what to do.

    Hello all, I have been a cosmeticjourney and I have read with interest the experiences of other ladies here and their facelift successes. My facelift decision was no different. As I have plan to go to Thailand on my holiday and I heard a lot about high quality plastic surgery there. So, I studied cosmeticjourney stories was surprised and delighted. Choosing a Dr. was a concern for me. I wanted someone who specialized in facelift. After tried for searching about specialist doctor. I found The SIB clinic and Dr.Darin is the surgeon there. Then, I had my consultation appointment with Dr. Darin in May and liked her immediately. She answered all my questions and showed me some of her patient before and after pictures. At that appointment I decided that she would do the procedure. I was shown a picture that described the procedure and what to expect. Everyone at The SIB clinic are so helpful and having service mind. They are always there for help me. Like so many ladies on cosmeticjourney I am excited and nervous but honestly, the excitement overpowers the nerves. After done the operation, It was so amazing I feel like I am being youthful again. Thanks!

    I had Vaser Liposcution at Cosmos Clinic in 2013. These are my diary entries that I wanted to share with you About me: I’m 21 years old and have always struggled with my weight. I was a very chubby and unhappy child and that carried on throughout my teen years until I hit about 16. I lost most of my excess blubber a very unhealthy way through starving myself and excess exercise. Although I did this, I was still miserable and it wasn’t an easy thing to keep up and I was still never able to loose my belly fat! I put about 10kg of weight back on a year later mostly on my inner thighs and abdomen. I now live a very healthy lifestyle through dieting and training but my belly/thigh fat still remains so I decided enough was enough and it was time for me to enjoy my body when I was still young. After months of research I called Cosmos clinic in double bay to make an apt. Consultation: 6/11/13 From the moment I walked through the doors at cosmos I felt so comfortable and at home. The nurse, Laura, took me into a room and talked with me for over an hour about Vaser liposuction. She was so friendly and answered all my neurotic questions! Dr. Ajaka came in shortly after and was just as kind and friendly as Laura was. I could tell he knew what he was talking about from the second he opened his mouth. He was very realistic about my results and assured me that I was in the best care. I’m going to be getting my lower abdomen, upper abdomen (as well as some high def on those areas) my inner and outer thighs and my lower back. We scheduled my Vaser date for 2/12/13. The day before: 1/12/13 I am so excited but right now my nerves are taking over the excitement. I have spent every night on my laptop doing research, reading blogs, reviews, looking at photos etc. I’m not very nervous about the after pain to be honest, as I know that it just means I’m healing and my body is recovering but what I am most nervous about is the pain during which not many people talk about on the blogs. I’m fine with pain when I’m recovering but just not with pain during a procedure – I have severe needle phobia! I’m probably driving Laura crazy as I have emailed her so many times about pain management but she insists that its completely normal to be nervous and has answered all of my queries. I’m going to have twilight sedation for the procedure as well as P****rox when I need it (The green whistle) and Happy Gas so I should probably stop being so paranoid! They have given me a relaxation tablet to take tonight so when I arrive at cosmos tomorrow morning at 7am I will be chilled out. The Day of: 2/12/13 6:30am: Right now I’m actually feeling pretty chilled. I have to be there by 7am and we are starting around 8am. I’m not sure if I’m chilled because of the tablet they gave me last night? Or this is just the calm before the storm... (Lets hope for the first option) My issue is that I’m a nervous crier so the last thing I want to do is start blubbering away and look like a small infant… Well I guess the next time I blog will be this afternoon when I get home from the surgery and I’ll upload pics then. (I apologies if this blog is far to detailed and in depth but I just want everyone reading this to know my full experience, not just the happy or unhappy snippets of it!) All Over! It’s officially done! I think it took approx. 4 hrs. and the whole time I was relatively comfortable. Time flies insanely quickly when you’re under twilight sedation, which I was. All the nurses, including Dr. Ajaka were so friendly and made me laugh and forget about anything I was worried about. The local anesthetic stings a bit when they put it in but I was also sucking on happy gas so it was almost like I didn’t care about the pain? (which was very minimal anyway) I remember saying ouch a few times but every time I said it they stopped immediately and put in more sedation, which made me really at ease. There were parts that I would call uncomfortable rather than painful to the vibrating form the vaser cannula, which would have been more likely to make me laugh than cry. When I look back at it I only remember snippets and it seems to have been more like a dream then reality. After it was done I had my garments put on which made me feel really supportive and walked to recovery where I snoozed for about 2hrs. Not going to lie, as the local was wearing off I was in quite a bit of pain but it was always bearable pain, nothing crazy intense. When I got home I went straight to bed, took 2 pa****ene f***es, had something small to eat and drink, which made me feel a lot better Night/Day One 2 Dec 2013, Day of treatment Ouchy…Very uncomfortable! I felt like a fish out of water just flapping around trying to get comfy and every time I moved it felt like my skin was stretching. Also I leaked like a tap… light colored blood all over my garment as mine is skin color and all over everywhere I sat. Yuck, very off putting. It was a very bad idea of mine to sleep when I got home from the procedure straight away at 5pm (even though that It was all I felt like doing) because I was then wide awake by midnight which wasn’t fun. I just lay there and listen to relaxing earthy music which really helped and relaxed me so I suggest that to anyone in the same position. I’m about to go for my first shower which I am super nervous about to see how I look and also I hope I don’t faint. I’ll also post pictures after ? The marathon shower event 2 Dec 2013, Day of treatment Just took off all my gear standing up.. not a good idea at all. My mum took it off me and everything started to go blurry and I couldn’t hear myself or what she was saying out loud which was not a nice experience. I then lay flat on the back in bed and took the rest off and felt a whole lot better. I was nervous to look in the mirror incase I would hate what I would see but I loved it! There was hardly any bruising which was great and my tummy had tightened up dramatically and my back looked so smooth. I was very swollen though and the drains in my lower abs really freaked me out. Even though I didn’t get my arms done I felt so lethargic when washing my hair and soaping myself so it did feel nice to get back in bed and just have a chill out. At 4:30pm I have my after care massage, which I am very nervous about. Pain 2 Dec 2013, It hurts a lot when I stand up from sitting or sit down from standing but once I’ve actually started moving around I feel fine and once I have found a comfy seated position I feel fine too. Just had my lymphatic massage and it felt very strange.. some areas were numb on my stomach so it felt really weird when she rubbed them. She also told me that they took out 1.5L of fat from the belly…wow…Allot more than both doctor and me expected! I feel pretty nauseous from all the meds though which isn’t good but I’m praying I have good nights sleep tonight! Oh the Itching! 3 Dec 2013, I’m very close to ripping my skin out because I’m so damn itchy! Has anyone else experienced this? I honestly would rather be in pain than itch, its thatttt annoying.. (rant over) So last nights sleep was better than the one before and I can now sleep on both sides too! Yay! I’m still a bit sore but I feel better and more energized than I did yesterday and I could actually enjoy my shower this morning instead of feeling like I was going to pass out. Most of my leaking has subsided apart from the drains in my front, which still really freak me out. I’ve stopped taking pa****ene f***e and moved down to just normal pannadol as the codeine was really blocking me up inside which has made me feel super uncomfortable and even more bloated than I should be which isn’t good. Nothing more to report from today! Day Three 4 Dec 2013, Its so strange that its only been three days since my procedure, it feels like its been weeks. The pain is almost non-existent which is great but the itching is still frustrating but power of the mind is a strong thing and when I don’t think about the itching, it goes away after a while. My massages are getting more and more intense as they are starting to put more pressure on the areas that they are massaging which can be really uncomfortable at times but I know that it has to be done. The drains are now coming out in two days as I’m still leaking a lot from them due to the vaser hi deff on the abs and I’m still really nervous about that but I’m trying not to think about it to much until I have to! Day Four: 6 Dec 2013, My feet and ankles are so swollen! I got a bit scared at first that something was terribly wrong but the nurse says its totally normal! The drains are out! 6 Dec 2013, So I went into the clinic for my massage and for the drains to be removed and I was literally sweating bullets. I was so nervous and anxious about the whole idea of these long straws being pulled out of me. I feel like a total idiot now because I did not feel a thing… I was hyperventilating the whole time and I asked the nurse to pull them out ‘really slowly’ and just after I finished saying that she laughed at me and said ‘They’re already out..’ So now I feel really good because over the past five days I’ve just been nervous about this so now when I take off my garments I don’t have to feel disgusted by them and I can just concentrate on my body healing and my progress! Day Seven Pictures 8 Dec 2013 Day Fourteen (Week 2): 15 Dec 2013, I’m feeling really great overall but I wish I did this in Winter due to the un-comfort of wearing all my gear in the Australian summer.. The itching has pretty much stopped (thanks to DermAid Soft cream) but sleeping has been pretty tough with the black corset on. But good news now is that from today I only have to wear it for 12hrs for two weeks instead of 24 hours, which will make sleeping a hell of a lot easier. I have found it difficult to find clothing to wear with the corset on as it comes right up to my armpits which makes wearing sleeveless maxi dresses a no-no so I have to settle for the t-shirt style and look very ‘heavy’. For the past two days every morning I’ve been going for a 20minute swim which has made me feel amazing just to get out of the suit and do some light exercise. I find that in the morning my body looks good but in the afternoon I swell up quite a lot (almost back to my old shape), which can be pretty unsettling at times. Overall I’ve been super happy with how I look at this point (even though I still have a long way to go) but I still think that my inner thighs are quite swollen as I haven’t seen much change but I’m trying not to get upset about it as its only week two. I’ve noticed that I feel a lot more confident already with how I look and I can’t wait to see the improvement in the next few weeks. Day Twenty-Two (Week 3): 25 Dec 2013, I probably didn’t pick the best night in the world to blog as I’ve just indulged in a three course Christmas dinner and am now the size of two small houses… But apart from that, everything is going pretty good apart form the bloating. Everything looks all nice and flat and pretty in the morning but right after I eat a meal, even if it’s a small bowl of cereal, I get really bloated which can be pretty off putting and upsetting. Does this happen to anyone else?? I am also starting to get a few lumps and bumps under my skin, especially where they did the High Deff, but that doesn’t bother me too much apart from the fact that they are very tender to touch and especially massage. I know I shouldn’t be too worried about the bloating/swelling as I’m only three weeks in but patience has never been my strongest quality. I’ve been doing a few incline walks on the treadmill which has made me feel good but it has also drawn to my attention how much of my cardio fitness I have lost which makes me very sad… Overall though, everything is going quite well. I actually much prefer leaving my garment on than taking it off (I know that sounds strange) as when its on, although its uncomfortable, I feel really supported by it and when its off I tend to get a bit light headed and feel pretty icky. Week three pics 25 Dec 2013 Week Four: 29 Dec 2013, Just did my first training session after a month… Boy it was hard but I feel great now! My body is looking and feeling quite lumpy and bumpy which isn't fun but I'm still massaging everyday so hopefully it will all go away soon! Week Five: 5 Jan 2014, I can’t believe it’s been five weeks! Time is just racing by and only more week left before I don’t have to wear the spanx (yay). Everything is going pretty good, there is no real pain unless someone pokes or prods me in sensitive areas (my sides are super sensitive still). The one thing that does annoy me still, is my yo-yo swelling. Everything looks really good and flat in the mornings but as the day progresses my swelling increases, which can be quite disheartening at the end of the night when I feel like a balloon. I’m still trying to not be upset as it’s only been five weeks and the true results are seen after a few months. I’ve been training everyday this week which has been really tough as my fitness has really taken a beating from a four week rest but I’m still pushing on as I know it’s going to benefit my results. I can’t even express how much this whole experience has helped my confidence levels - its insane. I no longer have to worry about a bulging belly when I wear tight fit clothing or feel crappy when I look at myself in the mirror, its helped finally after 21 years feel really good about myself which is awesome. Week Six: 12 Jan 2014, I made it!! Six weeks down, which means I don’t have to wear any more gear and I have my photos take today at the clinic. Dr. Ajaka has asked me if I want to do PRP injections for my scar tissue but I don’t think I want to.. I’ve already been traumatized enough by the fear of needles!! and the scar tissue really doesn’t bother me that much and I know it will go away (Its already started to fade anyway) I’m super happy with the results so far and I know that my body will keep changing and shrinking for a few more weeks! For anyone reading this and considering doing Vaser, I’ll tell you now that Vaser liposuction does not have an easy recovery - yes it does hurt, yes the spanx and corset is very annoying, and yes its frustrating how much your body bloats and gets lumpy and bumpy but boy is it worth it. Not only have I changed physically, by mentally I am so much stronger and more confident within myself. I look in the mirror and I love what I see. I know my body isn’t perfect, far from it, but this has given me the platform to allow myself to train harder, eat healthier and just enjoy life more. I now train six times a week including person training, spin classes and Pilates and before when I would train I wouldn’t see results so I would think – why do I bother? But now that I have this body I can see the improvements everyday and it makes me so happy. So anyone considering it, from my experience, it’s very worth it but you need to know that it’s not an excuse to be lazy after, it’s a springboard to a healthier happier lifestyle.

    dears, thanks a lot for your answers, yes they are textured, not anatomic but round, Arion implants. well, point is that they dont///melt eachother, my natural old breast is down, soft as before surgery while the up part of breast is hard like a rock and mainly these 2 totally different textures dont mix eachother, they are independent and therefore the look of breast looks horrible. i will try to upload some picts, from my phone and let you girls judge as well. i just want the 3 months to pass and then have a surgery and remove them. they are horrible, uncomfortable, i am horrified everytime i see them...the worst time of my life, this is what i did with this implants
