    A bit concerned

    I have a couple of lumps since my implants and after an ultrasound it turned out to be cysts. Best to get checked out xo

    Silimed Explant

    Hi @joyfulgirl99, apologies it had been a while since I’ve logged on, and I didn’t get any notifications in my emails! Yes I’ve had mine checked out via ultrasound and there is apparently no indication of ALCL. Please be aware that this cancer generally develops after 7 years post implant however. There have so far been over 80 reported cases Australia wide resulting in a few deaths. While the risk is minimal, it is also very real, and I feel the numbers will only increase as time passes for ladies with textured implants. I will be having mine removed this year (8 years post implant) as the risk is not worth it to me. Had I known all those years ago I would have certainly chosen to implant with smooth implants, or not at all! On a tangent and as @Elle Anderson mentioned above, Breast Implant Illness (BII) is another concern and I do have some symptoms of this which I hope explant will alleviate, however they could be totally unrelated to the implants. The PS I consulted with for explant agreed that the Silimends should be removed and also said I have capsular contracture in one breast. @Mona76 if you haven’t had your explant yet, please be aware that in some circumstances (when deemed medically necessary) you can access your superannuation to fund the surgery. I will be doing this for my surgery. Also ladies, if you weren’t already aware Similed implants have been banned for use in Australia since late 2017. Those who implanted with Plastic Surgeons should have been notified pursuant to APS guidelines. As I implanted with a Cosmetic Surgeon I was not informed of the ban/proven ALCL risks.

    @JD* babe you wont need panadol, they will give you/partner a script for all your post op meds, they roughly cost me about $45 from memory, i had amoxycylin (antibiotic) , Cellabrex (Anti inflammatory ) Oxycodone 5mg and a sustained release Oxycodone which was fore night time ooh and you'll need 4 soft gell ice backs for those swollen boobies and rotate them on /off for the first 48 hours , you prob won't need the anti bac gel either its a hospital they will have those things stuck to the walls all over the place😅.

    Best and safe Botox injector in Sydney?

    Hi Girls, So as recommended I went to see Dr Jodlovich for my botox and cheek filler treatments. I'm beyond happy!! He was very professional and gentle with his injecting technique. The results are simply superb. I bumped into him at city cafe near my workplace 2 days later while I was with my colleagues and instead of feeling embarrassed about having cosmetic work done, I felt very comfortable walking over to chat to him and advising my colleagues to see him for all their cosmetic needs.The feeling was empowering as I'm now the group favourite for finding the best cosmetic doctor in Sydney! Thanks again girls for suggesting him to me.

    ‘Cheap’ v normally priced BA

    Cheap isn't always better. It is your body and you are worth spending money on to get a great result...…..not a second rate one. x

    Ha ha, virtual middle finger, I love it!! 😂 You are absolutely right, I trust my surgeon, he was happy that that size would still be in proportion with the rest of my body. I’ve done that much research and am relentlessly looking at boobs that I think my husband is starting to seriously question if I’ve started “batting for the other team”. Thanks @JD*, you’re exactly right about not changing my size to please others, I’m the one that will be living with them, not anyone else.

    Cheek fillers - Recommendations

    Hi Cheeky, I've had to go to a few places around Sydney before I found a practitioner that I felt comfortable enough to trust with doing my lips and cheek fillers. I went to see Dr Ellis Choy at first but found his prices too expensive. I then went to see Dr Steven Liew but was worried that he was always traveling around to conferences and he wouldn't be available for follow up reviews. I then found Dr Tom Jodlovich on RealSelf and was impressed by the good reviews he had on his profile, so I thought I'd see him for a free consultation. I'm so glad I did, as my experience with him from the very beginning has been amazing. He took his time explaining my options in dermal fillers and focused on what I specifically wanted to achieve without trying to upsell me anything, which is so unlike what I experienced in numerous other medispas. He is very gentle and careful with his work and always shows a sincere determination to achieve the best outcomes for his patients. And to top it all off, his prices were on par with laser clinics Australia, so who wouldn't choose to see a specialist cosmetic doctor for the same price? He is definitely the first doctor that I would recommend for your cheek fillers. Hope you have a great experience and feel free to get in touch me if you like. Lots of love, Roses

    Compression Strap!!!!

    I've heard of many girls having to wear the strap and it did help you just have to give it time but yes if it dos'nt work then it may mean another surgery to release the pocket, keeping my fingers crossed that the strap helps.

    @Kit every recovery is diffrent and it all depends on how tight your chest muscles were before surgery the typ of implant, placement ect as how things are going to progress so it may not take 10 months for you but i just wanted to let you know that it is a process and it can take quite a while so don't get discouraged just yet. 😊

    Booked for Surgery 10th August

    @BethM I haven't had mine done yet but I will be getting mine done by him in 3 weeks time 😁 There are a few girls on here who have had their surgery through him and they all spoke so highly of him and seem to Be very happy with their results. Which is why I went to him in the first place. He is a very lovely doctor and I think he is going to do a great job. If you search his name in the forum you can read for yourself what people thought, there are a few discussions about him. Some girls did seem to think he was quite conservative with sizing and seemed to think If you want big you really Had to push him but that definetly wasnt the case with me I just showed him some pictures of what I was after in size and he didn't hesitate to Offer me 450cc, I think he just listens to what you want and also takes into consideration how it will look and just gives an honest opinion on what he thinks will give you what you want but also not making you look ridiculous.. Anyway good luck on your journey and keep us updated on how your consultation goes I don't think you will be disappointed 🤗

    @margaretriver anatomical implants have a textured shell that adhere to the surrounding tissue like velcro to stop them from rotating, the first 6 wks of healing is the most crucial as it is in this time that the implant needs to adhere to your tissues after that you should be fine, on a side note i have a girlfriend in the fitness industry with anatomical overs and hers have not rotated and look as good as when she first had them she is now 7 yrs post op and has had no issues and they are quite soft and have a goid bounce and jiggle to them ( she let me have a good feel when i was in my research phase 😂)

    To tell or not to tell?

    I was very unsure of how my mother would react when i told her i was getting a BA as at the time i was considering traveling interstate to have it done and was needing a travel companion (you need someone to stsy with you for the first 24 hrs if traveling interstate ) hunbby was going to stay home with the kids, when i told her she did ask why and have i looked at all the risks involved and when i told her i had sppnt 5 + years on and off researching she was ok with it, as for telling my dad well i waited until after I'd had the surgery before i told him as he is not as approving, there was a bit or ranting but he eventually got over it, i agree with Pink Butterfly somewhat on this one , you are a grown woman the decision to have a ba/bl is your weather they approve or not but i believe in being honest.

    Thanks so much everyone! I was feeling so lost at the start of week and now I feel more sure on what to do. I found it really weird when I called Dr Maysons office and they were being so pushy with the polyurethane implants. I had called for general information and within the first 5 minutes they were telling me that polyurethane implants were the only way to go. Maybe I will skip Dr Mayson and go and see Dr Moradi and a few others if I find anyone else I like. Thanks again

    @JD* @Chook81 @AS1 @Olivia81 its very normal to have sensitive nipples and it will pass in a few weeks, what i found helped was putting breast pads (the breastfeeding kind) in your bra they have the sticky bit on the back so they wont move around and bunch up in your bra and the soft cotton wool fabric ads a little protection for your nips 😉 an make things a little more bearable

    Thanks so much @Tori14 and @Olivia81. Apologies iv been a bit absent from the thread. I have been really busy getting married and then honeymoon, then got food poisoning when I got home yesterday! But luckily I’m well just in time. Had just today to get the house in order etc. Has been busy! So I probably haven’t had much space to dream or think about surgery until today. Glad you are feeling better Olivia 😀. The initial boxy look I know will annoy me too, but it’s comforting to see from others pics how they soften over time! Just like yours will.

    Hi, i had revision for bottomed out implants with Dr Theo Birch on the Sunshine Coast and he’s done a great job. I live on the coast and really wanted to have my surgery done here but I also consulted with Dr Phil Richardson in Brisbane who I know has a great reputation and was very knowledgeable. I personally preferred Dr Birch overall. Good luck with your revision! I know how stressful it can be X

    Hey @MellieMoo I have my BA done with Kollias around two years ago. I have been happy with the whole process and just like the others have said, so have several others I’ve spoken to. I believe Kollias is very conservative so in my opinion I think he would’ve made the decision which will give you the best option Good luck, very excited for you!

    (This post is my personal experience and everyone has the right to their opinions and informed choices). I am looking at it explanting ASAP due to BII, rupture and discomfort. I was a thin ribby, pigeon-chested, deflated 10B after breastfeeding 3 so I can totally relate. The implants did and still do look amazing. But I am so, SO sick. Full of inflammation and neurological problems, unbelievable fatigue and a list of symptoms as long as my arm. It was not worth it; the money I don’t mind so much, the loss of quality of life is priceless. Can not wait to get these things out and to try to heal my body. I don’t want to scare you. I am sure many women have implants with no/little complications, but this is my experience. Good luck with your decision xx

    MRIs to check implants

    I had to have a mammogram (+ ultrasound) last week due to my GP finding a lump in one of my breasts. I have never had a mammogram before and the medical staff could not have been nicer about the situation. They were so compassionate. I did have to sign a paper about agreeing to the very small chance my implants could rupture due to the mammogram. But I have silicone so I wasn't too worried. Plus I have some amazing women around me who needed to have their breasts checked for their lumps and they both had aggressive cancer leading to mastectomies. So I didn't want to muck around with it. RE rupture, if I thought that I would probably go for ultrasound as my first go to.

    Drug Use After Boob Job

    Oh wow! It’s never too late to do something for yourself hehe were u smaller than a C cup at first and then it “dropped and fluffed” to a c ? Yeah I like to use Molly/MDMA sometimes but that makes the body heat up so I can’t reallg imagine that would be any good considering recent incisions obviously. That’s fine thanks for the honest advice, it’s just something you can’t really bring up to your doctor so you go get advice on forums haha!

    Pain after breast augmentation

    Yep i agree with what @sabP says @Stacyb, i too am a side sleeper and yes my back got very achy slerping on my back but the pillow under your knees helps by taking pressure of your lower back and you could also try a heat /wheat pack to place on your back too, the heat can help ease the ach's and pains. Good news is it's only temporary

    New boobs take 2

    Hi Paddy, so sorry you are going through this too. I am having a hard time getting what the Dr said in regards to fixing it up at an appt and getting it in writing. He said he would only charge me for the operating theatre and new implants. When I got it in writing, they have only quoted the operating theatre charge and sent me the price for replacement at full cost, ($10000) which is not what was discussed while there, when I questioned this I haven’t heard back (it’s been almost a week now) I am considering just not going back there and going somewhere else altogether. Seeing as this is symmastia, which is 100% surgical error, I thought I wouldn’t have any issue getting it fixed up without too much of a hit financially, as before the surgery I was assured that if anything did go wrong he would fix it at minimal cost. If I’m going to have to pay that much I’ll be going somewhere else. Someone that actually will back themselves by having their revision policy in writing. Anyone reading this, who hasn’t had the surgery yet, if your surgeon will not give you their revision policy in writing before your surgery, find another Surgeon.

    @sabP I'll just put my hair in a plait and leave it for a couple days haha. I'll get my partner to take me to my hairdresser who works from home and get her to wash my hair until I'm able to lift my arms up. Around day 3, washing my hair is a must! Yep 18 days to goooo! Just want it to hurry up already. Ooooh can't believe it's nearly been a year already!

    Cheek fillers - Recommendations

    Hey lovelies, Thank you so much for the advice! So upon reading your suggestion, I went to see Dr Jodlovich on Tuesday and I have to say the experience surpassed all my expectations. Dr Jodlovich was very kind and well mannered. He answered all my questions and advised me on the best approach to take for my cheek filler treatment to get my desired results. And the results Day 2 post treatment are phenomenal! A very natural lift and smooth contoured definition to my zygomatic arches that gently smoothes out my nasiolabial folds without any signs of any cosmetic work been done. I thought I would never be able to get these results with dermal fillers alone but now I see their true value in the right capable hands. Thanks again for the recommendation, I probably would have never found Dr Jodlovich if it wasn't for your advice :) Next step in my cosmetic journey - lip fillers

    Awesome! He's very lovely. I got in early thinking he would have a big wait list and thought it would be hard getting an appointment. But had my first consultation Tuesday and he emailed me the quote that night and managed to get In Friday for my second consult surprisingly and booked my surgery date early to make sure I got the date I wanted. Really excited for the surgery day and so happy knowing I'll be in the hands of saint andrews hospital and be able to relax there overnight.

    Silimed Explant

    Hi ladies, I have had my implants for almost 4 years now and lately more and more I have been thinking about getting them removed. I have health issues that have been worsening and I think the implants may be partly to blame. I was especially shocked to learn about one of my favorite YouTubers having hers removed recently: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdrnkhiNF6M and all the health issues that having breast implants caused for her. BII (Breast Implant Illness) is denied to exist by the medical community, but it does seem very real and there are plenty of women who can vouch for it. I think it is worth looking into, especially if you feel your health is not as is should be, despite doing everything to live a healthy lifestyle. I now worry about toxins leaking into my body, and that the silicone capsule is not impermeable like your surgeon may have told you. I shall be conducting more research into this and starting a thread on it soon, as I think everyone should be aware of it. I wish I known about this risk prior my surgery. I too have Silimed Brazilian furries, and my surgeon was Dr Harwood. He is now retired so we can't consult with him.

    Hey it looks like you've had a botched surgery and your surgeon doesn't know what they're doing/talking about. I would recommend you a fantastic doctor: Dr Ellis Choy in Sydney. He is extremely well priced and fantastic at labiaplasty surgeries, amongst others. I had labiaplasty with him and I honestly couldn't have asked for any better. Contact him and he will definitely be able to fix your situation. You can even look him up on this website to see before and after pictures. Good luck to you.

    Surgery anxiety

    Hi! I'm in the exact same boat as you. I'm coming from Melbourne and having surgery with Dr Tav, August 16 and will only be having my consult the day before. I've had a couple of friends go to him and their boobs look AMAZING which is why I decided to go to him and I'm sure yours will look amazing as well! Where did you book for accommodation? I'm not sure where to stay

    May 2016 boobs!

    I've been a little MIA of late! Today marks two weeks post op for me feeling pretty good have started walking everyday which has been nice but am hanging to get back into the gym! Also I am finally starting to get feeling back in my boobs which is good as I was quite numb the first week! Some nasty bruises came out in the last week or so but are slowly getting better.. Do any of you other ladies post op have bruising? Hope everyone is doing well all the best for today @Hannabee92 and the ladies in the coming weeks!! here are some snaps of my progress at day 14

    May 2016 boobs!

    @jolive7 I had a consultation with Dr Phil Richardson in Brisbane a couple of weeks ago. Here are the quotes: Dr Richardson Dr Narupon $11,250 for TT $ 7,020 for TT $ 3,500 for BL $ 7,760 for BL & BA $11,350 for BA TOTAL $26,100 TOTAL $14,780 BIG difference! On top of Dr Narupon's fees I also have to pay for airfares ($800) and accommodation ($1,400), plus a small commission to Beauty Abroad for their assistance. I thought the accommodation was a bit on the high side, but I do have the hotel room all to myself and if hubby wanted to come it would still only be $1,400 for the both of us. So all up, a saving of $10K which makes for some u-beaut spending money while in Phuket! @kg95 I had my rice-ettes shoved into a tight sports bra which didn't really do them any justice. Sure did feel funny having something sticking out of my chest!
