  1. Mentor are slightly firmer according to my surgeon - allergan more nautral
  2. I back what missSJ said! I'm also a Mark girl, so call me bias but another girl on the forum livkat had a few BA's which were un successful and went to mark and he fixed them right up!! I also had a slight issue with my breasts, I had a short crease to nipple distance and Mark made my boobs look great. I also saw Craig, and I thoguht he was great but I felt more confident and flexible with my decision! As missSJ said it will just feel right
  3. The problem with ladies getting there boobs done is they have unrealistic expectations. At the end of the day you're boobs are only going to be as good as the boobs you have pre op, 'just improved', if that makes sense. Perhaps thats why your friend had an undesirable outcome in your eyes. Either way, if you are looking for a more natural look i'd book in with Craig. I did see him and would have gone to him had I not found Mark. I just found Craig a little too conservative size wise - still a great surgeon - many girls on the forum have fantastic results. I know you mentioned issues about money and travel but like sezzy mentioned at the end of the day putting it into perspective its worth it. Trust me, I jumped at the thought of thailand surgery for around 5k! Then I changed my mind to stay in Aus (mainly for post op care reasons), found Dr. Harwood (who has AWESOME results) but I am based in melbs and he is bris, really the reason I considered travelling there was because he has an all inclusive package for 9,500. But then I decided to put money aside as a factor. I ended up spending close to $14k and I couldn't be happier. I know I have had top quality treatment and surgery! At the end of the day it is your decision, but you need to be confident in it and your surgeon
  4. Firstly, I think it is important to book another consultation or two. Popular Melbourne surgeons on this forum are: - Hamish Farrow - Craig Rubinstein - Mark Ashton (who was my surgeon) - Tim Brown Generally they say that for people with more breast tissue overs are suitable, although, your cup size and your weight (you're teeny tiny) makes me wonder. Are your boobs deflated, so to speak? Sometimes thats when surgeons use overs to really fill out the deflated breast. I'm no surgeon though of course, but thats why I would suggest another consultation just so you can compare the two. I have textured unders and I chose them because they are more firm, and don't move as naturally (like smooths). I think another consult would be the way to go like I said to compare! Good luck x
  5. Massage really comes down to the surgeons preference. I have textured and LOVE them. My surgeon described it like this: when lying down do you want your boobs to have a natural sag to the sides (smooth) or do you want them to be quite firm and not move (textured). Aparently there is also a lower risk of CC but I don't even know what the statistics are with that, hence why that wasnt my deciding factor in getting textured. I wanted perky, firm boobs!
  6. Hi Ladies, I actually deleted my photos due to the spam on the forum!! I have to re-add some for you all to see but basically I am thrilled with my results
  7. Wow! That is a realy shock because I found the nurses to be amazing!! I even wrote them a thank you letter as they were all so caring and accomodating. That is SO rude!! And even the wait time is comes as a suprise, I waited less than an hour before I was on the operating table. Sounds like a very off day! Good on your for complaining, I would have probably told her where to go if she kept probing me with those sorts of questions. Probably jealous that you were going to get some amazing new boobs from the amazing Mark
  8. Well I got 400's and I'm measuring an E!! 750's would be measuring wayyyy bigger than E! I started with a B cup
  9. Most of the girls on this forum have had their procedures done without any assitance from medicare/private health due to the fact that a straight BA is not covered. Personally, if I could have been covered and had to wait I would. I guess it depends on your financial situation as well
  10. Its all very technical and thats when a surgeon knows what to advise you best but like I said it never hurts to get a couple of consults which you have and it is a good thing if they are all consistent! In my experience though: 1st consult: 275cc 2nd consult: 345cc 3rd consult: 350cc 4th consult: UP TO ME! and I got 400's Its amazing how opinions differ! x
  11. I was told by a Thai surgeon I was also mildy tuberous and 275 would be the max I could go plus I have a rib tattoo which the surgeon thought I would avoid distorting with a smaller implant. Ended up staying in aus and got 400cc without any issues! Always pays to get a second or third opinion. In my following 3 consults in aus all the surgeons I saw said that I am not tuberous at all but I have a short crease to nipple distance! I was so relieved as I was feeling like I imagine you are now x
  12. So the profile basically means how much projection you have side on, how much they 'stick out' I guess you could say! For example a 400cc Mentor High Profile implant has a diameter of 12.2cm with 5cm of projection. In comparison, a 400cc Mentor Moderate profile implant has a diameter of 14.5cm and 3.2cm projection. So you could go right up to a 650cc implant before you start going over the moderate profile diameter!! Therefore, you can get a high profile implant with a larger volume as the diameter/base of the implant is narrow compared to a moderate profile implant. So having said you have a narrow chest this is probably why you'd be better off going for the High Profile implant as you can have more volume without going too wide in diameter. If you are getting mentor implants you can get the mentor implant dimensions here: http://www.implantinfo.com/breast_implants/breast_implant_dimensions_mentor.aspx Even just google implant profiles and you will be able to get a better idea by comparing each implant profile
  13. That is so strange, no I didn't have a breast lift. I actually sent in my details along with my referal prior to my consultation. Then just took the invoice into medicare after I had my consultation. I also paid just over $13,000. I got Mentor round implants I do know the teardrops are more expensive. Even my second consult I got a rebate for, it was only $70 that consult. I assume something has changed since then, how bizarre. Perhaps just mention you know a couple of other girls who recieved rebates on their consults and wanted to know why consults are no longer rebatable.
  14. Trust me I was counting down from 6 months - it FLYS! I think the funnest part is counting down and anticipating the day choosing size etc Well after I decided I wouldnt get in done in Thailand I thought if I was going to travel overseas I could do interstate. Dr. Harwood was appealing because of all the great reviews on the website and his survery is $9,500 which is cheap for it done here!! I then went to 2 other consults (Craig and Mark) and figured i'd much prefer to stay local and the price should not be considered when it comes to quality. I don't have family in brissy but I pretty much looked after myself during my BA anyway so I chose Mark and I couldnt be happier!
  15. Thats what I did. I booked all my consults then made an appointment to see my GP for refferals. My first consult was actually in Thailand, then a phone consult with Dr. Harwood. Then I went and saw Craig, then Mark, and had a booking for Tim Brown but canceled because I was so happy with Mark and also I heard Tim doesnt do unders. I know Mark is getting busy now (and I imagine other surgeons would be too) as he trys to see everyone (post op's mainly) before the christmas holiday period plus he goes away. Just give one a call and book the first one then work around that, mine were spaced out over a month
