  1. Hi Honeycakes. It definitely is better having someone with you. I could do most things, but after surgery the max suggested weight you can lift is 500 grams, so you would definitely need someone to carry your bags. A shame you can't have a friend or family look after your children while you and your hubby go down.
  2. I haven't has this done, but when I researched the fat transfer I read that it is a short term solution as 'apparently' the body will eventually absorb the fat resulting in it having to be done a few times over the course of my life. This is only what I read. Perhaps there are techniques where this doesn't happen. But definitely raises a question ?
  3. Hahahaha.. We just cracked up hahahaha
  4. I'm probably a little biased because Dr M was my surgeon. With such a huge decision, I think the surgeon and your current health plays the most important roles for this surgery. Dr M is a really lovely, professional person, but much more importantly, he is very particular and a complete perfectionist. My scars are only 5 weeks old and are amazing!! With the tape he gave me to put on after 8 weeks, I believe I will be hard strapped seeing the scars. Of course there are many skilled surgeons, but I have followed this man for a long time before making my decision. Perhaps it's worth just biting the bullet for this one time and make it happen. Whatever it takes, even if you have to wait, so be it... It's worth waiting for <3
  5. Hi BoobTube... This surprises me as usually the Dr M team are really helpful. In regards to Dr M seeing your boobs in the consult, he will be looking at your actual boobs, not your photo. He needs to see them in person as he can't get a fully true picture until he has actually seen you. Perhaps you can book your surgery now and leave the required $1000 deposit and then take it from there. Im im pretty sure Dr M just quotes between $12k to $12500 for a BA... Unless you need a lift or something else?
  6. Hahaha, you look fantastic! Jees from where we've all come from pre surgery... Jealousy is actually a compliment lol. I took my girls for their debut on Saturday and what a hilarious day it was... There's guys that just flat out stare, look away, stare, look away hahaha.. Then there's those who look down super quick and look back at your eyes... One lady just flat out said "Hey you've got great boobs", and let me know that she's never said that to a woman before and burst out laughing lol. Then there's catching the guys looking as they quickly save themselves by turning their head hahahaha. Both my partner and I are having a ball with all the attention lol. If I'm in a conservative setting I'd probably be a little restrictive but apart from that I just want to wear flattering clothes. I certainly won't be hiding my $12,500 assets lol
  7. Letting the girls out to visit some friends today! Feeling proud!! Hahaha
  8. For just sitting around to be comfy I've been wearing those Aah Bras. They're awesome!! So comfy and pretty supportive
  9. Hi Mkav, I'm almost cringeing at one of the self righteous responses you got to your question. Usually you can ask questions on this forum and get factual non judgemental responses. The simple answer to your question is no, they don't cover for BA's for emotional reasons. I hope you don't feel deterred to ask any questions in the future. ?
  10. I had a nipple reduction and areola reduction a year before my Breast lift. Healing was very fast and didn't have any pain at all.
  11. Hahahahaha!! Well have been reading the "Health Debate" and must admit it's been a great read lol. Both will intelligent, feasible arguments. I must admit, I am not a frequent visitor of most westernised medicines and procedures, and am definitely a huge believer in treating the cause rather than the symptoms. Of course to be real, there may be incidents out of my control that may happen, but apart from cosmetic surgery, I am very happy to say that I have never needed health insurance for my 48 years on this planet. The only reason I am looking now is because I have knowingly put my body at risk. I have not made a concrete decision at this time, but applaud you both for being so passionate about your beliefs. It is only by these kinds of conversations can anybody make an informed choice xxx
  12. 3 and a half weeks PO... I'm so happy to have boobies!!!
  13. Oh ok, that's so good!! Will check that out too! Thanks Rachael :))))
  14. @ Shezi.... Hahaha you're a crack up! Good to have the bedroom bliss going on lol. I'm loving cross over style tops and definitely V necks. Tops that just fall over the waterfall look ridiculous hahaha. Yep! I hear you with the belly going on lol. Glad to be on track. In regard to soreness, I'm right handed. I've been trying to use my left arm more thinking it's because I'm not using it as often, but who knows! Lol. Hahahaha your comment about surgeons advice cracked me up! It's like you were reading my mind. One lady posted that her surgeon said go barbless during the day to assist with d & f, so straight away I took mine off, but was too sore and had to get back to doing what I was told lol. With health cover, probably will just open a savings account. Thinking I will actually save more that way. If any revision procedure has a Medicare number, I'll be able to claim some back anyway. I'm pretty sure my implants have warranty anyway. I was given some silicon tape to reduce scarring but I'm not allowed to put it on until 8 weeks po.... Just another advice difference lol.. Im im loving the V neck and crossover styles too. I don't even know the shop I bought them from lol, but thinking of just looking online.
  15. Funny you should say that Harper because my original surgeon said the same thing. A savings account for the girls makes perfect sense. I could at least open it with the current cost of the hospital fee and take it from there. Calculating as per you @ L I would be paying almost $12k at 10 years which is what the surgery is anyway. Thanks ladies xox
  16. 3 and a half weeks PO :-) Loving my boobies... Getting a lot more game wearing crossover tops which accentuates the girls lol. Finally nipped my eating binge in the bud and am back to healthy eating. Having to rediscover fashion as a lot of style clothing that I used to wear just make me look fat lol. My left girl is a fair bit more tender than the right but they really are healing nicely. I see our surgeons all have differences on post surgery. I was allowed to wear a soft bra during the day, but am advised to wear my surgical bra to bed for 10 to 12 weeks. Hahaha Shezi I'm waiting for the d & f too! I love having boobies soooo much. Am trying to find health cover that will cover any revision surgery if needed. I put up a post but haven't heard anything yet. So looking forward to getting back into walking, boxing, kayaking, paddle boarding etc. going a bit stir crazy at the moment. Surgeon said not to raise my heart rate over 100bpm for six weeks. Being of an obsessive nature lol, this is a death defying act!! Would like to be a little bit more comfortable, but it's happening slowly but surely :-)
  17. Had my BA a few weeks ago and am looking at have some more surgery at a later date for a couple of revisions to my TT. I also want to be covered for any ruptures or cc for the future. Anyone who has joined AFTER their surgery, please let me know who your with along with the approx monthly payments please :-)) Thanks in advance xox
  18. Hahahaha I had that along with squelching sounds hahahaha... It only lasts about a week lol
  19. Haha Hi Karajd88... Morning boob is when you wake up with full, hard boobs. They are quite sore, but as soon as you start moving around a bit, it settles. I think the level of being uncomfortable differs between each persons experience ?
  20. Freaking out a bit here. Sometimes when I look down, putting my chin to my chest there is this puckering going on from my boobs to my neck in a diagonal line on both sides!! Is this normal? God, I hope that changes when they drop. Will be looking like a freak!
  21. Absolutely!! I've had to change many things that I used to wear! I agree with Rachy ? My naked body now looks better than with clothing lol. Mind you I've put a few kg on since stopping my exercise regime one month prior to surgery.
