    Roll call - Surgery Dates for 2018!

    OK my update 😊 All went very well, I had a BL & BA which I was nervous about, but I'm thrilled with the results!!! They are sitting nice and high and much fuller. I'm feeling a bit tight, which is to be expected, but on the whole I'm doing great 😍 I'm still in hospital but will be allowed home @ 5pm, which is nice as I get to rest up a bit more before heading home.

    Roll call - Surgery Dates for 2018!

    Hi everyone thought I would stop by for an update. I’m 9 weeks post op and love my boobies! I’ve gone from a 10C to a 10E with 455cc ultra high profile overs. Love the size and shape. My main worry when I got them was that my bwd (13.5cm and 14cm) was too wide for ultras (10.4cm or there abouts) My surgeon explained my own tissue would fill up the sides and they would be close together. Even without a bra now there is less than a pinky space between. My advice always trust your surgeon, they know the best and do want to give you the best result. Here’s a some bikini pics 😛

    My experience with Dr. Revis!

    So I have returned from having my breast revision done 3 weeks ago by Dr. Revis over in the US. Let me tell you, he did the most AMAZING job, completely exceeded my expectations. After going to consults with 4 other PS in Sydney I still didn't feel 100% with any of them. I nearly booked in with Steven Liew but at the last minute, looked into Dr. Revis. I put the idea to my partner and once he was on board that was it. I emailed Dr. Revis a long email with photos about my complications, fears and what I'd ultimately like to acheive. He responded within a few hours, and it was so extensive and detailed. I was so so impressed, even though he was so far away, I thought he was better than any surgeon here in Sydney. He quoted me $10750, which was around $14000 AUD. This included everything, so doctors fee, hospital, garment, anesthetist etc. He did a bilateral capsulectomy, internal bra with permanent sutures, implant exchange from 375cc furry Brazilians to 800cc Mentor smooth high profile silicone and a donut mastopexy. So a lot of work, but as soon as I met him I knew he was the doctor for me. All I wanted since the moment I had my first breast augmentation all those years ago was nice cleavage. I have always been told that I would never be able to have cleavage due to me having a very wide gap, but Dr Revis said he could give me to 1 finger gap I wanted. And he did!! I still can't believe it. We went on holiday to LA, Las Vegas then finally ended the trip in Miami where I had the surgery. Recovery was amazing as I was sitting poolside in the sun. I had my pre op on the Thursday, surgery on Friday then post op the following Tuesday. After the post op we flew straight back to Sydney. Once your finished surgery you are given his mobile to call anytime of day. You can also email him and he is guaranteed to respond within 1 hour (not even a joke). He is a man who lives and breathes his job. The pain wasn't as bad compared to my first augmentation, even with the internal bra. I have started massage and using the scar treatment. He has made them look perfect and there will be hardly any scarring. I cannot stop looking at them. I know alot of the girls on here talk about going to see him, and I have to tell you... It's 110% worth it. I finally have the boobies I have always wanted.

    Roll call - Surgery Dates for 2018!

    Just an update on me.. So I've started my RC treatment with the specialist yesterday, second treatment in Nov and my last in May. Today I spoke to my specialist and he said having breast surgery in Dec shouldn't be a problem (yaye). I need to see my surgeon next Tues to let him know what's happening regarding my dental work and get an all clear before booking surgery date. Should be ok though. Being 5mths after surgery, I'll just take ABs prior to my last treatment.

    Roll call - Surgery Dates for 2018!

    Thanks ladies! Made it out of surgery yesterday at about 5.30pm. Have been dozing for about an hour at a time through the night. The pain is just like so many have described - more like tender with a bit of pressure. Just got to have a peek when the nurses came to check my nipples (possible side affect of BA and BL can be impact on nipple blood supply, necrosis etc .. but all fine here!) Ended up going for smooth Mod Plus Profile, Mentor Rounds. 250cc R, 275cc L (bit of asymmetry before). For now just snacking on dry crackers and relaxing in hospital, got another night in hospital then out on Xmas Day! 😊😊 Will put photos up when able soon!

    Congrats @Ezza98 @JD* and @Olivia81 first week almost over now? How are you feeling? I bet they would be looking so different already to how they started! This time next week I will have boobs... feeling poor as the funds have officially departed my bank account and Xmas shopping isn't helping either! 😅 But I'll get the best present of all next week hehehe Has anyone else had heaps of weird dreams leading up to the surgery? I've had at least 3 dreams now where it's surgery day, and I wake up from surgery and I feel my boobs and they haven't changed, I still have one bigger and one super flat!! and the doctor is like, no that's it they're done and I'm super disappointed and confused haha. Then I wake up and am relieved it wasn't real life 😅 I've also had a dream where I am awake during surgery telling the surgeon 'no that's too small put the bigger one in instead' hahaha. Getting super impatient now! Not just for boobs but also for an early break up from work for Xmas woohoo Goodluck for tomorrow @The_bright_side!!

So happy with wat i have now. Will get to take bra off tomoro which is exciting. It's amazing to have gone from nothing to something. So happy to have something now.

    So I made it out the other side!! Yay!! Surgery went well. I went in about 11.30 and woke up in recovery at 2. Yesterday I was pretty groggy from the general and chest felt heavy to breath. Amazing how I can breathe much easier and more freely this morning already. No pain as such, just tightness and a little discomfort. Hamish was great. I was pretty nervous going in and his bedside manner was so lovely and he really put me at ease. Not exactly sure with what I ended up having but they do look a little bigger than I thought. However I can see that there is a lot of swelling and they are sitting very high so once the swelling goes and they drop I think they will be amazing.

    New boobs take 2

    Hello every one, this is a very similar post to another thread I've just found so I'm sorry to repeat my self. I am so sorry to hear of your problems and anger. There has clearly been a number of communication break downs, mainly on my end of things. While I can't comment on specifics I would like to emphasize to all of you that if complications occur I am desperate to fix them. Cost is now a big problem because until the end of last year it was easy using Medicare and insurance to do any alterations for free. Now things have changed with a new set of criteria making revisions completely unfunded. There has obviously been issues with some quotes and if you would like to contact my rooms I would love to see you too make things right. I personally get very upset by any complications, but the thought that my patients would think I don't care is even more terrible. I understand if you have lost trust and choose to see another surgeon if you feel you have been badly treated and can only profusely apologise and explain I had no idea of your concerns until I read this forum. Dr Sam Cunneen

    Sooooo.... Revision.... Again

    I would seriously question the integrity of any surgeon who re-operated on you in such short time given the history of your complaints of being too big, now too small. Please spend the money on a good mental health plan and work out what is really bothering you before putting your body through another surgery.

    Big day tomorrow!

    Thanks ladies, I've finally done it! I've been home and resting for a few hours now. Pain is not that bad just really tight and a bit hard to breathe deeply because it feels like someones pressing on my sternum. There's a bit of an ache in my middle back below my shoulder blades which I wasn't expecting but otherwise I'm feeling pretty good. My surgeon made me feel so comfortable and the day surgery staff were beautiful. It's been an awesome experience so far. I will post before and after pics in a couple of days. 🙂

    Hey @sabP Thanks for thinking of me! I'm officially cold free which eased up yesterday and today I feel great besides a tired jaw which I had all week due to stress, even though I don't feel stressed (probably in my sleep due to clenching). Other than that, I don't know how I feel right now about the surgery until tomorrow morning when I wake up from 530 when it feels 100% real! 😯 I'll be sure to update everyone. My admission is at 7am, so I should be in theatre around 9.

    How did work colleagues react?

    @Frankie* I own the business so can take the rest of the year off the tools but still in the office managing everyone. Doc said 3 weeks and I can go back to work...I am assuming hes never done a 9 hour day pushing a trowel around 😂 As @I HaveBoobs said, blokes will notice but hopefully their gentlemen about it and notice but dont behave like immature douchebags. It made me smile imagining you showing up like ‘what...oh yea my boobs are huge now, no biggie’ hahah Just own it baby and dont let any negative nellys make you feel bad, their just jelly!

    I made it wooo! I’m feeling ok and all taped up. We went for 455cc UHP overs and from what I can see under all this tape they are looking good so far. I love feeling all this fullness up the top. I think I’ll be taped up for a few days then they’ll fit me for my bra. Can’t wait! I made the hubby take me to McDonald’s drive through on the way home for a big burger and fries- I was sooo hungry. Just chilling and watching Netflix now 😊 Will keep you lovelies updated!

    My journey back in time

    I'm 59...still, in 2 days I'll be 60, and, this is my 60th birthday present to myself. I knew I was going to have a face lift one day, and last year I thought now is the time, so I started researching. I read many reviews and watched many Youtube videos. Thailand seemed like my best option in terms of reputation and expense. However, when contacting places like Destination Beauty and Cosmeditour, and after considering several doctors I always had the feeling that it might not be reliable or safe, although the reviews were always good. So, I decided to do it at home in Sydney. I did my research, picked a reputable surgeon and went for a consultation. Well, a face lift was just going to be way too expensive, around 30K all inclusive but only an estimate, which never means less. So, I settled on having just the lower eyelids done, day surgery under general anaesthetic and ended up paying 10K total after the hospital sent me another bill for $1000 extra because the doctor took longer than expected. Anyway, 6 months later my eye bags were looking much better except for more crows feet at the sides (see images), so then the neck and jowls were still hanging there. I started researching Thailand again, knowing it was the only option unless I wanted to go with a cheaper, less experienced, accredited Sydney Doctor, who would charge 20K total. I came across Dr Chartchai's name here and in the Realself forums, and whenever his name came up people said he was highly regarded in the field, and is well known for the great work he does, and because of this he does charge more. I narrowed my research down to focussing just on him and was happy with what I found out. I decided this is my surgeon. I sent an email to the hospital with my photos and I also contacted Bodyline Patient Care - a company connected with Dr Chartchai. The quote came back as 420,000 bahts, which is roughly $19000 Australian, and so it was affordable, and I had the confidence I wanted in a surgeon. Janese of Bodyline Patient Care contacted me, and she led me through the whole procedure from start to finish. There was no need for me to think. She still rings me now. She's an Aussie and that does help. Surgery took 7 hours I am told, they do a full health check before it (unlike in Sydney), all the staff at Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital were so nice. I had to shower with antiseptic cleanser before the operation (unlike in Sydney).The anaesthetist gave me gas to sleep before doing anything (unlike in Sydney where the needle was put into a vein in my hand while I was awake). After surgery I woke feeling very very drowsy and thirsty and couldn't talk. Janese was there to put a straw to my mouth and reassure me that all was good. Then I dosed off, woke up and Janese was there to spoon feed me some soup. I dosed off again and when I woke at 3 AM Janese was still there, and she told me she would go home now and come back later. At breakfast she was there, and by now I could sit up and eat some scrambled eggs (yummy) and juice. I didn't feel like any of the other food on the tray since it's not easy to eat, and this goes on for about 3 or 4 days, just soft foods. After the usual check ups through the day I had my shower (keeping head dry) and then at 2 pm I was discharged. Janese took me to Starbucks for coffee and cake, and then we got a taxi to the hotel. The Windsor Hotel, executive suite, all booked through Bodyline was a real treat. I had a beautiful view from the 31st floor, access to the executive dining room on the 32nd floor which looks over Bangkok city, and this is where I had breakfast, evening drinks and snacks, all inclusive. I had a nurse, Marie, from Bodyline stay with me the first night to give me ice packs and make sure I was comfortable. Janese took me to breakfast the next morning. On the 4th day we went out shopping, and then the shopping and tourism part of the experience continued until I left Thailand 2 weeks after arriving. I had fun. Janese knows Thailand very well, having worked there for 15 years with Bodyline Patient Care. Dr Chartchai turned out to be all I expected, and I think it's due to him and his skills that I am not in any discomfort and I can hardly tell where the scars are. How did my family react when I told them I was getting a facelift in Bangkok? They were very supportive, and had no issues with medical tourism. My sister came over a week after my surgery, and also got a little work on her eye area. Dr Chartchai made time for her. My sister and I have concluded that the medical standards and care at major hospitals like Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital, are better than in Sydney. My huge private room with large screen TV and ensuite was more like a hotel room. It was also dead quiet and the nurses all have soft shoes and you don't hear them walking in. Dr Chatchai is very busy, therefore consultations are short, and he doesn't show you before and after images of his patients because he doesn't have to. If you don't choose him he has enough patients already. He doesn't need to compete or advertise. His website provides useful information, but no before and after images. I was fine with this. I am now 17 days post, and back home again, feeling good, although swollen and numb. I was always a little afraid of a facelift, but the lower eyelid surgery and recovery was worse in all ways. I can honestly say in my case there is nothing to having a facelift - no pain, hardly any discomfort so far, and my stay in Thailand was actually fun. I'm planning my next trip to Bangkok - a tummy tuck. I'll be using Dr Chartchai and Janese's services again. Now, about medical tourism. I have read this and agreed with it at the time 'surgery and tourism should never be in the same sentence'. Now I know different. I haven't seen many photos or read much about the holiday experience of medical tourism, so I've posted some images of my time there. Janese organised all our outings, and Marie, the nurse, came along too. When my sister and I went shopping with Marie as our guide, she insisted on carrying all our bags as we were her patients, and she patiently waited for us to choose clothes at MBK, and gave her advice on what to buy.

    Thank you everyone and that is very interesting to hear. I didn’t realise day surgery was so popular for augmentations. For some reason it makes me very anxious even though I have had other day surgery procedures (medical reasons) before. I have decided that an overnight stay will be best for me and not so much pressure on my husband with the kids.

    Yesterday was surgery day for me and wow that came up quick! I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who posts on this forum and who has shared their journey. I haven’t posted much myself cause I’ve found all the info I’ve ever needed was already there with a quick search. The biggest help were the post op photos and comments saying that how they look straight away is not how they stay. I’ve gone under the muscle and without that knowledge I would have been so disappointed with how they look right now. But I know that through the d&f process they are going to keep looking better and better. So thanks again everyone xx

    Drug Use After Boob Job

    I'll second the wait a few more weeks before you have a drink or a smoke (no judgment honestly ) but did you know that alcohol dilates your blood vessels and thins the blood which can lead to a hematoma (intern bleeding ) , i know you feel good at the moment and believe me when i say i did i had no pist op pain had full use of my arms ect ect, but you just had major surgery and your incisions are not yet healed, ask yourself this question do you really want to risk $8-10 K you sust spent on your perfect set of boobs . Whats a few more weeks to allow your body the best chance to heal , and to add if your smoking pot (or be using something else ) but you are putting toxins i your body while it is working very hsrd to repair the damage/trauma caused to it by having syrgery and it reduces the oxygen in your blood cells that is needed for new tissue growth. Not trying to preach just stating the facts ☺☺

    Drug Use After Boob Job

    Your body is doing a lot of healing. I went back to work after having 2 weeks off, and that first week back at work really knocked me around. I didn't touch alcohol for a few weeks mainly because I wasn't craving it. At the moment, my advice to you is to make the best and healthiest choices to give your body a chance to heal. Maybe leave the alcohol and drugs for another month? Or as you said leave it for a couple of weeks but maybe go lightly with it first?

    12 mpo today

    Well i can't believe it's been 12 months (1 year today ) that i had my breast augmentation, its been a roller-coaster of emotions during the recovery from omg they are huge to i should have gone bigger to they look different from each other , one is dropping faster, I'm not sure i like them or the shape to I'm starting to like them and now finally at 1 yr po i can say i love them, i still have days when i look at them and say my left one looks bigger and sits a little lower but they are 100 times better than what i started with. Ladies we are our own worst critics and it really dose take a year to see your final results and i believe that i may still have some changes to come given not significant changes but more subtle, trust the process the changes are amazing to see so take weekly photos . For my gallery friends my 1 yr pics are up.

    Thanks @AS1 and @JD* recovery is going so well. The main thing that is bothering me is I feel like the band underneath on my post op bra is too tight and digging into me. The top feels really firm and comfy but I'm going to call the nurse today and ask how firm it should be at the bottom 😬 The hardest thing is just getting up from leaning too far back at night because it's all chest muscles to move forward. The pain is so bearable though because I have amazing boobs now 👯 I already feel like I got my perfect size. Unbelievably happy 😊

    Thanks @Frankie* 😀 I am feeling very ready. I've wanted this for almost 20 years, since I realised I wasn't going to be blessed with boobs and then having kids made it worse haha. All the information I've found here has helped so much, the lists of things I'll need to have and do to prepare in the days and weeks leading up and afterwards that I would never have thought of especially. I'm getting 295cc and 315cc Motiva full plus, round, textured, gel implants, placed under the muscle. I'm so excited that I'll never walk out of a shop crying again because none of the bras I tried were small enough 😁

    How did work colleagues react?

    Hi @Frankie* i work in a hair salon part time and the rest a fitness instructor and PT i told the girls i work with in the salon as we are all pretty close (good friends ) that i was having my boobs done so they didn't really overly react when i got back to work except to say that they looked good and in proportion, the Gym i work at well a few people knew mainly my group Fitness manager and my PT manager and some of my work colleagues, when i returned after taking my recovery break a male member had asked me if i had "a little work done" and i said yes can you tell 😅 he said oh yes and winked at me , it didn't bother me as i know him quite well (he has been a member for years) but i guess it's how you dress them when im in the salon i kinda dress them down so it dos'nt look obvious that I've had them done but in my gym gear is another story its a bit hard to dress them down, i have had a few stares from new male members but like i said it dos'nt really bother me (i paid good money for my boobs and didnt want to have to hide them all the time )

    ‘Cheap’ v normally priced BA

    Hey hun... the difference is as you state "cosmetic sugeon" as opposed to a qualified, skilled and trained plastic surgeon. A cosmetic surgeon is literally a GP with a scalpel and you get what you pay for. The majority of girls who have problems have primarily been to cosmetic surgeons (disclaimer - some also have problems after plastic surgeons, nothing is perfect, but things are less likely to go wrong when you go with a reputable plastic surgeon). This is surgery and it is your body - don't go cheap, if you don't have the $$, save a bit longer and choose a good plastic surgeon xo

    Hi Girls, I've been seeing Dr Tom Jodlovich for both my lip filler and anti wrinkle treatments now for over a year with exceptional results every time. Having being to other doctors who have rushed through the treatments, Dr Tom takes his time to understand what results you want to achieve and spends all the time need to achieve it. I can recommend him to everyone as the best injector in Sydney. Hope this answers your questions and leads to your desired results Cheers, V.C

    Negativity around BA?

    You have to remember that some people just love the attention. Or also take to the media when they haven’t done their research and things go badly. The media is rubbish.

    3DPO today ladies and all seems ok. I have stopped panadol and nurofen, went for a walk with husband and three kids to the park today. Able to pretty much do most things other than lift my little ones. Boobs feel a little itchy so I’m guess that is either skin stretching or incisions healing. I see Hamish on Monday to have dressings removed. I’m a little nervous about removing dressings, hopefully it isn’t painful!! I get a little squirmish! Shape is looking really good! I feel like my boobs are back to how they were pre breastfeeding 3 bubbas!

    Thanks girls. I phoned Miroshnik's rooms but it's impossible to get any help over the phone. The girls have such attitude!! Very disappointing and surprising, I imagine he would lose a lot of prospective patients due to the unwelcoming and unhelpful receptionists. I have tried explaining that I just have a few questions and is there anyone I can discuss them with before booking a date and paying a deposit and committing to surgery, but they are very "computer says no" and just say if you have more questions you'll need to discuss them with Dr M, and pay another $250, and he's not available until November.... by which time the December date I want will be gone. It makes me concerned that I am just a number there. Rapport is important to me, particularly because I'd be flying up from Melbourne for the surgery. I want to feel taken care of and this experience now makes me suspect that after surgery, especially once I'm back in Melbourne, I'll be very much on my own and if I ring with questions, who will help me? He doesn't seem to have a patient coordinator or anyone on staff who can assist patients. So disappointing because I do think he gets beautiful results but I want a good experience and I want to feel like they will look after me - especially when you're willing to pay such a premium. I'm definitely leaning towards Rastogi now because when I call, you get to speak straight away with the patient coordinator, who remembers my name (the Miroshnik girls don't seem to remember who I am even though I flew all the way up for a consult just last week) and she put me through to speak to the nurse, who was lovely and spoke to me for ages about all my questions and concerns. Rastogi himself even called me quickly for a chat about some questions about ALCL. It only took 10 mins of his time but made me feel so much more like he actually cares.

    @JD* that’s great news. It will be here and over before you know it. I still can’t believe my surgery is done. Spoke to Hamish this morning, we went with 275cc Mentor rounds. He said everything went great and I’m really happy with the outcome so far. Managing with panadol and nurofen but it’s more discomfort than pain. I had to come home with a drain still in my right boob and going to GP tomorrow to have it removed. Will keep you posted on recovery but so far so good. I’ve managed to have a shower, did my own hair and got dressed unassisted. I think Hamish is spot on with the active recovery. Nurses all encouraged me to be up and about and moving arms up etc as soon as possible.

    Thanks everyone 😁 Just had my consult with Dr T, and I'm getting what I wanted, motiva ergonomix 😁 he's going to try 3 sizes on me 380, 410 and 440 HP in surgery, but reassured me that he will do his best to fit in the 440 since he knows I love big boobs lol. I'm super happy, the 400cc sizer looks really good so if he gets to 440 in surgery I will have the look I want 😍 I cannot wait for monday now!
