    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 😛

    Roll call - Surgery Dates for 2018!

    For me, I was struggling until exactly 3 weeks post op. The first 2 weeks it was the swelling and boob area that was bothersome and the 3rd week it was horrible middle back pain!! After 3 weeks I felt so much better but had tightness and mild pain for another week after that. I know that by 5 weeks I was feeling great! I hear you, it felt like it took so long to feel good again! Are you week 4 now? Thanks 😊 they have dropped and fluffed sooo much already! Here is a pic of 2 weeks vs 5 weeks and they are even better now at 6 weeks, just can’t be bothered doing another collage 😂😂

    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.

    Do they feel like yours?

    My boobs feel as big as part of me as my arms, legs or head. To me they’ve never felt foreign. I never look down and think there’s my fake tiddies. Always just, wow nice tiddies self.

    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.

    Unsure about sizing :(

    http://www.abc.net.au/4corners/beautys-new-normal/10115838 I really advise watching the four corners program. It speaks a lot about people choosing budget surgery with cosmetic surgeons and then complaining that they are botched. (Wonder why) Whilst it’s your choice to put your body and life into someone’s untrained hands.... don’t you think after experiencing the issues you have that you would make a wise decision and do it the right way and seek someone who has experience? Once upon a time I was naive too, cheap surgery sounds good right? WRONG. Now I actually value my life..... and breasts. You should too. A plastic surgeon can help you with sizing to ensure your desired outcome.

    All done and recovery is ok so far. No really pain at all just tightness and muscle soreness like I’ve done a mega weights workout, I’m hoping they don’t change size too much though as the swelling goes down. Bit concerned I’m not going to make my c cup dream 🤗 so happy to be on the other side!!

    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!

    Hi everyone, I'm booked in with Dr T in Sydney for the 17th of September. I'm so excited as I've wanted this secretly for a long time, but never had the guts to do this until now as I was afraid of what the people around me would think. But I've come to realise that it's my body and I can do whatever I want with it as long as I'm happy! So grateful to have found this forum full of information to make this journey a lot less scary.

    Survey for girls with anatomicals.

    I found by 9 months post op my boobs finally had some jiggle and were softening. I then noticed another change at 18 months post op. I am now 4 years post op and they are more squishy. But they will never be like natural boobs...…..cos they are fake. They are still firmer than natural boobs...…….but my husband never complains about them.

    Documenting my BA journey

    @Moderator Honestly, why isn't this (or similar) accounts banned yet? They seem to be nothing more than shill accounts with them making irrelevant comments on posts (this thread is to document MY journey..) and they ALL always have the same template of mentioning them having their surgery in that particular country by Dr Firstname Lastname and about how good he is?? In particular, the 3 users who have shilled about this particular doctor @ravishingurl29, @annie23 and @Lemonadeforshades all have literally only made accounts to post about the Dr once and were never online again. As for @heartofgold9, @caringmom45 and @dignamom42, literally EVERY SINGLE COMMENT of theirs has the doctor's full name and location inserted somewhere in their comments. Not to mention, ALL three accounts have used the phrase "my good doctor/surgeon + Dr Firstname Lastname". Mods, please ban these accounts. A good doctor will build a reputation on their own through their patients, not through disgusting business practices like these.

    ‘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

    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.

    Hello Everyone! I've recently had two consultations with Dr Kollias in Adelaide and have booked my surgery the 1st of December!! Whoop Whoops!
  42. 4 points
    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.

    Documenting my BA journey

    20th July 2018: Hi all! I'm making this post to document my BA journey. I'm in my early 20s and have been wanting a BA for a couple of years now. I'm 162cm and 57kg, have never been pregnant and no intention in the future. I'm measured at a 30D/32C but I have never felt like my size. I very severely lack upper pole fullness and my sternum protrudes out a fair bit. Hoping to go up around 2 cup sizes, around 300-400cc but haven't formally decided. Most likely going for round Mentor unders. Thanks for reading! So far the Drs I have consulted with (via email/messaging) are as follow: Bangkok Plastic Surgery - Dr Pichet Rodchareon Bumrungrad International Hospital - No Drs assigned yet but I will be asking for Dr Teerasit (Sripan) Sripanidkulchai Preecha Aesthetic Institute (PAI) - No Drs assigned yet but they have 2 for me to choose from - Dr.Burin Wangjiraniran and Dr.Sutin Khobunsongserm Masterpiece Clinic - They assigned me Dr Wutthiwat Anupansawang but I heard from a friend who had good experience with Dr Somboon Waiprib. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Email consultation with Bangkok Plastic Surgery (Dr Pichet Rodchareon) The good: Lowest price quoted amongst all I've consulted (this is quite a huge factor for me unfortunately) Dr replies to emails fast, although can sound a little short at times Pics he's sent of other patients look really good Seems to have a fair bit of good reviews for BAs He will do revisions for free if you are unhappy with results The bad: Claims to be board certified but when I asked him which board he was certified under, he just said that he's been doing this for 28 years Style of photography for his previous work is inconsistent (= can't really verify if they're done by him?) Patient will be made to sign a T&C form which states that he will not be liable for any danger/disfigurement/damage and that we will not be allowed to take legal action if we are unhappy with his work (is this common??) When I asked if there were previous patients who have come back for a revision + why a correction was needed, he just said 'least' Email consultation with Bumrungrad International Hospital (Dr Komwit Kaewchaijaroenkit) Heard many good reviews about this hospital and decided to email them but unfortunately they were way out of my budget at over 2x my budget without accounting for the long list of (compulsory) add-ons that the quoted price does not cover. Email consultation with PAI Unfortunately also around 2x my budget so I'll have to give them a pass Email consultation with Masterpiece Clinic (Dr Wutthiwat Anupansawang) The good: Reasonably priced Results from the few photos they've sent me of other patients look pretty good Was recommended by an acquaintance The bad: They are sparse in replies and sometimes require prompting (this is reallllly annoying..) Unable to show me the scars from previous patients Update: after I sent them all my pictures and more follow up questions, they completely stopped replying my messages --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 22nd July 2018: Just booked my flights and have my surgery scheduled on the 20th of August with Dr Pichet Rodchareon...I'm a bundle of nerves! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 26th July 2018: Paid my deposit and have my flights and accommodation booked for surgery on the 20th of August by Dr Pichet Rodchareon. I'm pretty sure reality hasn't sunk in yet since I don't feel the full jitters, but I'm sure it will come in time! Have my boyfriend going on the trip together to help take care of me, yay! Dreading what it will be like when I come back though My parents don't know and I do not intend to let them know about my surgery but I might be in the midst of moving house so if I can't carry all the heavy boxes...they're going to be suspicious since I used to be pretty athletic and can carry all the heavy stuff. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 31st July 2018: So it's approximately 20 days to my surgery and I've started some pre-op preparations. Hopefully this checklist will be helpful for someone! ✓ Travel neck pillow ✓ Download shows on Netflix ✓ Bought 4 post-op bras (I can't do laundry that often) ✓ Button/zip tops and pajamas ✓ Educate my bf on how to dry, blow and comb my hair lol (he hasn't mastered the tying part so I think I would probably twin french braid my hair going into surgery so I don't have to worry about it and can sleep comfortably) ✓ Hot water bottle for lower back aches ✓ Ice bag Didn't need it, plus it was kind of impossible to ice them while I was wearing the bra ✓ Bio oil for scars after they heal ✓ Small water bottle with a straw ✓ Retainers for my nostril piercings ✓ Bed wedge pillow ✓ Facial sponge - for when you cannot have a proper shower, having a wet sponge to wipe down your face is really helpful --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 20th August 2018: Day of surgery! Driver provided by the clinic arrived at my Airbnb 10 minutes before scheduled time and I was booked into the clinic at 7am. When I reached the clinic, a nurse led me to a room to explain and sign some forms. She was holding a stack of printed emails between Dr Pichet and I with all the pictures included - impressive! Dr came in and explained about the negative review I mentioned in the Roll Call topic to reassure me. He was also clear and honest with what I can expect (unfortunately, my ultimate wish boobs in my album would have required me to go up to 400-500cc). He recommended me to go for 275 or 300cc based on another set of wish photos I showed him. After much consideration and trying on the implants, I went for 300cc smooth round Mentor implants unders with infra-mammary incisions. I then paid the remainder of the surgery cost and then went to take a shower in the bathroom with antibacterial soap that was provided and got changed into the hospital gown. I was then led into my recovery room and had my measurements taken and marked by the nurse. Then, I was whisked off to the operating theatre. To be honest, I hadn't really felt true nervousness until I was lying on the operating bed and they were putting the needle through my hand to administer the GA. But I had little time to feel nervous because the last thing I remember was hearing the anaesthesiologist tell me that I was going to fall asleep in a few minutes and then I was out. Around 10am, I woke up groaning and crying in pain. According to my bf, 3 syringes of morphine were administered intravenously to me. I remember my throat hurting like crazy and it was so dry but I couldn't have water for the next 20 minutes. I was wrapped up tightly in bandages (no bra) and my back/chest/armpit area was SO sore, it hurt to move. I then continued to sleep and woke up around 1.30pm so I could eat and take my meds. More sleeping afterwards and I stayed overnight at the clinic with 24hr nursing service. Needed assistance getting up and lying down on the bed. No showering. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 21st August 2018: 1DPO Still very sore, woke up crying in pain a couple of times. My chest muscles kept contracting which made it very painful - it was really hard to try and relax them! I got out from my bandages and into a post op bra + bandages. Felt a lot of sloshing when I walked which made me very nauseous. I can walk slowly, unassisted but still need a lot of help getting in and out of bed. Checked out of the clinic in the morning after they took my blood pressure, temperature and heart rate. Went back to my Airbnb feeling in better spirits so I walked out with the bf to buy food but apparently it was too much for me to take since I felt extremely weak afterwards and night time was absolute hell. I felt immense pain and contraction in my chest area and it was impossible to find a comfortable position to sleep in (no reclining bed in Airbnb). I was waking up every 2-3 hours due to the pain and I messaged the nurse and she told me she would ask the driver to pick me up at 8 in the morning to come back to the clinic for a check. Could only shower myself from chest down. Needed assistance in wearing clothes. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 22nd August 2018: 2DPO Took an ibuprofen at around 6am and by the time I woke up at 7.30am, the pain had basically subsided almost fully. I went to the clinic anyway and had IV morphine administered. Checked out of the clinic at around 11.30am and was in much better spirits and appetite. Spent the entire day watching shows and napping. I messaged the nurse in the evening to let her know that I haven't had a BM since 18th Aug and she advised me to drink some prune juice. Couldn't find any so I ate some dried prunes before bed. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 23rd August 2018: 3DPO Woke up at around 1.30am for a very small BM and I still felt extremely bloated and uncomfortable. Woke up in the morning in good spirits as well and I'm beginning to be able to get out of bed without assistance sometimes - all the previous times have been spent sleeping upright btw. Still no proper BM so I ate a banana. The nurse very kindly bought a bottle of prune juice and delivered it to my apartment. Top notch service, I'm honestly very impressed and grateful! Spent most of the day staying home to watch TV but decided to go out at night for dinner and a bit of shopping. Finally managed a proper BM! Could only shower myself from chest down. Needed assistance in wearing clothes. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 24th August 2018: 4DPO Went back to the clinic at 9am for a final check to remove my bandages. Had to wear a strap to assist my boobs in dropping and keeping my cleavage together. Nurses taught me how to take care of my wound and they sent me back with a full bag of medical supplies so I don't have to buy my own! Spent the day walking around Bangkok and then the clinic arranged for a driver to send us to the airport for our flight. Could finally have a proper shower but I didn't wash my hair since I didn't think I was able to - went to a salon instead to have a hair wash and had my hair put up in braids so I didn't have to deal with it for the next few days. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 25th August 2018: 5DPO Just some final thoughts - I'm very glad the surgery was a success, I think my boobs look fantastic already and I'm so in love with them! I think that it was very necessary for me to have my bf help me throughout the initial recovery phase and I can't imagine how bad I would have it if it wasn't for his help. I've also relooked at my pre-op checklist and highlighted/cancelled out some stuff on the list - hopefully someone finds it useful! If given another chance, I would still pick Dr Pichet. He was very kind and warm, as with his team of nurses. All of them could speak English, were extremely professional and would readily assist me if I needed help. They also had a 24hr standby nurse I could text if I needed help after I was out of the clinic and I was very touched that they went out of their way to buy me the prune juice for my constipation. Dr Pichet quoted a very competitive price which covered a lot of things including a post op bra, medication + supplies, chauffeurs to/fro the clinic, airport pickup/drop off and a stay in the clinic, just to name a few. I have read some reviews saying that he didn't just see his patients as a cash cow and after being under his care, I definitely agree with the reviewer. Very genuine and friendly guy. Overall, I am extremely happy and satisfied with my surgery experience

    Boob job blahs

    It does take time for the implants to soften. I have unders so it did take longer than say overs to not be so tight and hard feeling. It took my hubby quite a few months to play with my boobs. He said his main worry was that he might hurt me. But I also suspected that it was because my boobs were fake and still hard. I am now 4 years post op and my boobs have softened heaps. They will never be like real boobs because they are fake. They are firm as the ladies are saying above, but my hubby loves them. I agree with the ladies in saying to ask your husband as to why he is refraining from touching or playing with your boobs. Maybe he is waiting for you to heal a little more but soft touching from him may give you both the confidence to know that your boobs won't "break".

    Roll call - Surgery Dates for 2018!

    Went to bras and things yesterday to ‘just see what size I am’. Previously I was a 10A so took in 10C,D and 12C,, all too small. Turns out I’m a 12 DD at the moment 😀😁

    Hi all, I slept ok last night in approx 1 hour blocks with walking around in between to stretch and take meds. I’m definitely sore today but keeping on top of the meds so it’s not too bad. Had a shower which was nice and a peek at the new girls! Boy was it nice to get that bra off! They are very swollen in the upper pole and into my armpits which is to be expected but I think the size and shape are going to be great once the swelling goes down.

    The top is six weeks the bottom is 4 months. Unfortunately I do not feel like they have gotten any bigger, they have just dropped and with the dropping my upper pole is gone which I miss and they look a lot more "natural" which to be honest isn't a look I cared for. I am really hoping they get bigger with more fluffing cause right now I am disappointed with how small they turned out compared to what I wanted :(
