  1. I would contact the nurse/PS for sure when you can. I think they will ask you if it feels warm and does it look red around there so have a look to see and decide if your incision feels warm
  2. Hi Bronte- I am 44kg and 164cm. I have a pretty tiny build and look petite and skinny. I was measuring a 6C (28C) before- which is similar to 8B in cup size to put it into perspective so even though it sounded like a C cup would be a decent size- it wasn't. I had 350 HP unders, anatomical. At 6 weeks post op I have been professionally fitted in 2 bra shops and I am wearing a 6G bra size. They do look big on me but I am skinny. I do love them and I wanted as big as he would give me.
  3. Any recommendations on 6FF bras 4 week post op bras would be appreciated
  4. I am 4 weeks post op and have been told by the nurse now to take off my compression strap, wear a underwired, no padded, non push up bra daytime and my carefix Anna bra at night time (no underwire). I have been sized at a 6FF and the only shop I found today with the size wouldn't sell one to me saying I was too soon post op for underwired and made my buy the Freya Active Soft Cup 4001, non underwired sports bra! I have asked the nurse to ask my PS what to do. Wishing I has asked my PS what to do at my 4 week post op now when I saw him but forgot in a panic then just asked the nurse. I have read most girls on here don't wear wires for 6 weeks so im panicking. I do want my boobs to come in a bit closer together and have read on a leaflet they gave me to wear a plunge with low underwire for this. Also what about the D&F process. Does this mean they have D&F'd or that the bra doesn't affect this?
  5. Hey- I went with Dr Tavakoli 3.5 weeks ago. I also didnt want to too natural look. He said to me straight away anatomicals- I think because I was tiny he said they would give me the shelf look which would look really fake on me. I do have a tiny frame - 44kg and 5 foot 3. He did say last week my HP anatomicals would look round on me anyway.
  6. I have been told to massage and I have textured implants. I have to kinda prod my boobs three times a day for 5 minutes. Do more if I can. I think the nurse said it was to help them soften up and they have done loads since the first 2 weeks. I am 3.5 weeks now
  7. Miss Little That story you told- I felt so sorry for you but it was like some comedy sketch that you were in... you know when something just keeps going wrong for someone. You poor thing! For the record I am wearing the Carefix PO Anna bra, its seamless and im finding it pretty comfortable. Dr Tavakoli told me to get this one. I havw to wear it 24/7 so it must be comfy if im not complaining. it feels really tight but that is just a standard feeling im used to know. Just happy to see that back of the tight muscle stretchy pains I was feeling last week. Im not having to walk around clutching my chest anymore like im about to have a heart attack!
  8. Hi New Life For the first 2 weeks I was told to wear the compression strap for 2 weeks 24/7- No bra. I only took this off to shower and wore it all other times. It was hard trying to hide the nipples! At my 2 week post op appointment he said my boobs need to drop further so I was instructed to wear the compression strap and then my Anna compression bra over the top- 24/7. He said I can take it off to shower and I can take a break but for the best results to take it as much as possible. Im pretty persistent and like a good challenge and seeing as im a bit of a perfectionist i am going to wear it 24/7 (apart from the shower). Hope this helps. I thought whats a month of discomfort (hoping I can take it off at my next 2 week appintment!) for a great pair of boobies. Im kinda just thinking uncomfortable is the new comfortable :/ Hope this helps
  9. GOOD Luck Boobsneeded! I know the excitement you must feel! I went for my 2 week post op (2 days early) today and was told everything is going well BUT I need to wear my stabiliser for another 2 weeks AND the compression bra too. Arrr! I was hoping I could have it off today but no... not this week, or next week. I am a little grateful I can wear the bra now though. My nipples were always on full beam and were hurting loads so at least I can keep them warm and hidden (relatively) now My boobs are still really hard too (day 12) they are a tiny weeny bit softer than the start but I am allowed to massage them now and have to rub my scar too because my scar tissue around the incision is starting to build. I have to pull my boobs together as much as I can too which doesn't feel very nice. All for the love of boobs though
  10. I did the same thing really- I just booked everything in a big rush all excited and didnt even get any comparison quotes. I cant see there being much of a difference. Its so easy to book everything in a hurry!
  11. HI Candice- Your stats are pretty similar to mine. I'm 162cm and 44kg with a 8B bra size initially. I asked for a DD but my PS said he would go for a D. I have no idea what size I will be as im only 9 days post op but I did want to go the biggest I could go and stated I wanted to be at least a D. I can let you know when I get measured what size i am. My PS went for anatomicals as he said they would suit me better and he put in 350cc. I wanted mine to look a little fake and not too natural also- did you want a natural look or a bit more augmented? Its good to have an idea the look you want to go for- I put together the specific look I wanted and was then able to show this to my PS for him to decide what implant would get this look for me
  12. Hi Newlife- I soo agree with the Day 3 thing. I was totally fooled at Day 2. I do think it gets better though with Day 3 being the worst. I'm on Day 9 now and I must admit progress is slow. I feel a little better each day but i'm surprised at how slow I am recovering. I was meant to be in work on Friday but I walk around quite a bit in my job and I would have had to have driven - there was no way I was up to it. I think on Monday (Day11) if I didnt have to drive and if I was in for a few hours and I worked in an office I would have more of a chance of thinking I was going to be in. Not sure if I will be fit for work on Monday but fingers crossed I pick up over the weekend. I have my post op appointment with the surgeon on Tuesday (Day 12) so really really hoping I will be ok to drive then. How are you walking and do you have someone to carry your bag for you? Maybe if not you should ask for assistance prior from the airport. Hope your flight isn't too bad- can you have an endone on the plane when you get on or is it not advised... maybe ask your PS? If you're not feeling up for work I would call in sick- I feel really bad asking for more time off but I didnt really have an option.
  13. Hi Ciara- yes I felt really good on day 2 and even went out for a long walk then it hit me on day 3/4 and I had felt worse since then. I only take endone when I feel I need to so I didnt take it if I felt I could last without it. I am on day 8 now but had to take one endone yesterday in the evening because I was uncomfortable for a between about 4-8pm then when I stretched my arm a little too far and hurt myself I just wanted to relax. Within half an hour it helped. I was meant to go back to work today (day 8) but there was no way I could go back. Everybodys different and some girls have gone back within the first week but I think im one of the slower recovery ones. My arms and easily tiredness are still limiting me and Im having to take it easy a lot. I go out for a light walk each day and it feels easier as the week is progressing. I still struggle getting dressed, I cant lift my arms above my head and wouldnt be able to open a car door yet- just to give you an idea of what its like for the slower ones. Hoping you have a speedy recovery> all for the love of boobies
  14. HEY DELICIOUS- I dont think I thought about it as major surgery but Iguess its a pretty big operation in term sof where it is on your body too- we use our core constantly and I have been so limited to what I can do in these first seven days- I totally didnt realise Id be like this. Im getting better each day though and today my walk was a little bit easier than yesterday. Im still real slow in the shower but managed to wash my hair on my own without any help today I still cant wash pans but I think thats a good thing for now Nadine you're funny! Cant believe she was guessing that and she still doenst know I feel a tiny bit better each day. Ive had to call work and tell them Ill never make it in tomorrow. They were totally fine with it. Theres no way I can drive so soon. Hopefully I'll be feeling up to it on Monday. Mona- hope your days at work havent been to hard on you- have you managed ok for the last 2 days? I still have the tight feeling in between my boobs but its easing a little each days and now I kind of know how to work with my body to reduce the pain. Mona when do you think you will be ok with driving. Thanks Rosie! Think ill walk to the DRs tomorrow to get a certificate as hes only round the corner. Do you think its ok to just get one off the GP rather than my PS?
  15. Maybe they will! Im checking every day(naturally) to see the update Can I send you a FR Bunny- would love to see your 570s- for future reference ;D
  16. Good Luck for the girls todaY- Little miss i think I did the same as you- I overdid it on Day 2 thinking I was much better than I was and paid for it the next day. Day 5 - 7 I have been taking ti much more easier on myself. It does get a little better each day though I have told them I wont make it into work tomorrow so I dont have to worry about going back until Monday ... yay hehe Delicious I told my boyfriend to stay away from my nipples too! He finds it hard to believe they can be so sensitive but he cant seem to feel my pain x
  17. I was told not to wear a post op bra- you have to buy one before surgery which they will give you information about- which one to get etc. You take it along with you on the day and you might wake up with it on I read in the information. I woke up wearing a stabiliser. Its a strap that they put across the top of your boobs to help bring them down. I had read that I might wear the post op bra during the night time but I was told to wear the stabiliser 24/7 and just take it off to shower. I go back for my next post op 12 days after surgery so they might tell me to take the stabiliser off then- I dont know yet. I had so many questions I didnt ask then have been getting help from here and asking Abby in the clinic lots too when im unsure about something
  18. Lindat- Good results on your post op- what was the rash? x
  19. Hey congrats Littlemiss! I had a shower the following day- I took the shower out of the holder though and kind of did a bit of my body at a time, avoiding my boobs really. I got my boyfriend to help me. He went out yesterday and forgot to take the shower down from the holder and I had to struggle for 10 minutes to get it down and got wet in the process- naughty boyfriend Hope you are getting plenty of rest x
  20. I want my new nipples to stay- I love them
  21. Not had the itchy boob thing but I guess there is plenty of time for that! I actually had a reply from my supervisor today saying take as much time as I need to recover and dont be worrying about rushing back which has put my mind at ease a little. At least I can relax and know that I dont have to go into work on Friday if I dont feel up to it The mornings are the worst I agree- did anybody else have orders to sleep sat up for 3 weeks? Its not too bad now but not looking forward to a night on the couch when im in work in the morning. Jmac Im chilling out as ordered and its weird- when my boyfriend comes home there is a sink full of dishes for him to do and I feel bad! Somehow I manage to fill the sink just after one day on my own :/
  22. Just make sure you take your pain meds with you to the party! I dont think you can drink for a while post op too. Dr Tavakoli has a super reputation and I really admire his work so you're in safe hands. People have travelled interstate to go with him My boyfriend came through to see the nurse with me and when I went through to the pre op room he came with me then too so I think thats standard. I heard others near by with people sat with them too which was comforting. I actually ended up falling asleep in the bed as I was nearer the the afternoon in te day and I think all of the excitement tired me out. Then he was there when I woke up for the second time after surgery and stayed with me until they discharged me. Thats prefect that you have your boyfriend and mum there. I had my boyfriend there with me until day 3 post op and he was such a big help. Im sure they would love to be your nurse for a few days. Dont worry
  23. Mona- How did you manage back at work on day5... was it a struggle or was it pretty breezy? Do you think you could have driven? Good luck for your post op appointment Lindat- is it near to you? x
  24. Hi- I totally agree with Toasty- Little things I took for granted like walking have been tiring me out. Im on day 5 and im walking very slowly like grandma for about 5 minutes then having to sit down. I am slow showering and doing things like making food, dressing, etc. Some of the girls have recovered way quicker than me though so im one of the slower ones. Its all about how you feel in yourself and if the pain is limiting you. I wont be able to drive on the 8th day I dont think as Im still struggling shutting the passenger door. I went to East Sydney Private. There is only one needle to take and my anaesthetist was so much he made me feel really relaxed- Dr Lee if you have him and he introduces himself before to let you know what hes there to do and what will happen when youre under- he'll also tell you what you'll feel like afterwards. I didnt stay overnight as I lived nearby- will you have someone with you after surgery?
  25. Theres hope for high beam after all! Mine are really sore today- did anybody else have sore to touch nipples?
