  1. Dr Tav is crazily expensive for redo! That's a pity that he can't reduce his fee if you had his original surgery with him. I wanted to consider him for my redo, but $1,000 for a consultation alone is just insane.
  2. I have an appointment with Dr M in just over 2 weeks, and after reading a few reviews over the last few months I have huge doubts about going with this surgeon. Problem is... he made me pay a non-refundable $495 for the privilege of booking a consult with him. Has anyone managed to cancel and actually get this money back?
  3. I feel sometimes like there are no decent breast surgeons in Oz. I had my BA with someone in Melbourne who is supposed to be the best, and he just didn't listen to what I wanted and gave me unnatural results. It feels like we are so far behind here sometimes.
  4. I'd also like to know if this is Dr M? I have a consult with him in 2 weeks (which I paid a non-refundable $495 for... this is INSANE, considering he would easily refill the appointment if I cancelled. It's enough to turn me off!!) Anyway, I just have a bad feeling about it. Please let me know if this was your surgeon?
  5. Hmmm this is strange. On Realself he has 73 reviews, but almost all of them are from people with just that 1 review and no other account activity... so are they all fake? It's just so weird that zero of his patients are on this site.
  6. Hi Girl1999, yes I've got photos - you should have access now to see them. They haven't really changed much since then. The PS who recommended going down to 205cc said I wouldn't need any pocket work or stitching (and that this can cause puckering). I'll be downsizing to rounds so that implant rotation isn't a factor. I came across quite a few people on another forum who downsized significantly without pocket work and said that everything tightened up by itself after a few weeks, but I still don't have many before and afters.
  7. I am planning on having revision surgery to downsize my 260cc implants. The PS I consulted with recently recommended going down to 205cc Motiva Ergonomix low profile implants, but this will only reduce the diameter by about 0.5cm and I just don't think it will be small enough for me. Has anyone downsized their implants to a similar size? Did you need pocket work or a lift? Were you happy with your results. I would love to see some before and afters if anyone is able to share! I'm 53kg and about 160cm, so quite a petite frame.
  8. Anyone? Lol I don't know whether it's a good or bad thing that none of his patients are on here!!!
  9. Hi, has anyone gone with Dr Steve Merten for their BA or revision? I'm having so much trouble finding active members who can give me feedback. I'm booked in with him for a consultation next month, but would love to hear from actual patients.
  10. Hi TheFox, sorry you had to have them removed. Did your original surgeon to the explant? I'd be very interested to see your before and after pics once you've had a chance to upload them.
  11. Hi girlygirl I understand you obsessing, as I hate(d) mine as well as went through a stage of being super depressed about them. But honestly, yours aren't bad!! Lots of girls would be very happy with a result like that. Have you considered seeing a psychologist about it? Not saying you're crazy, but she could give you some practical strategies on how to move past this. Maybe it could also help to get a second or third opinion from other surgeons?
  12. Hi ladies, I've been researching a lot about getting revision surgery. Essentially I want to downsize from 260cc round implants to maybe 220cc anatomicals... I realise it's not much of a size difference, but I think changing to anatomicals will improve the shape a lot (currently too much upper pole and way too wide/high for me). I'm after a really natural result! I've been told this is quite difficult surgery, as there is a high risk of the smaller anatomical implant rotating. It seems like Dr Miroshnik is one of the best, although I didn't like some of the photos I saw on his website for revision patients. I'm just wondering if any of you ladies have been to him for revision? Were you happy with the results? If anyone would be comfortable sharing their before/after pics with me I'd really appreciate it!! Thank you
  13. Pity I'll be in Melbourne on the 23rd. I'll keep an eye on this post in case it is rescheduled
  14. Yes my surgeon said that because of my age (35), he would highly recommend having babies first. He prefers his patients to wait 12 months after surgery to get pregnant, otherwise you don't know if changes to the breast are surgery-related or pregnancy-related. The part that made me undecided is that I actually want to downsize slightly... and I thought I would get less stretching during pregnancy with the smaller implants. Also I'm so unhappy with my current result that I just wanted to have it fixed and get on with everything else! But putting babies on hold a year sounded crazy. And this way I can see what happens to my boobs during pregnancy, and potentially have one less surgery.
  15. Well after seeing Tony again and doing a lot of thinking, I've decided to wait. I don't want to put my life on hold because of my boobs! Trying now to get pregnant, so we'll see what happens!
