    Dr Kollias and teardrop implants

    I have teardrops for 4.5 years done by a different surgeon. I have had no problems and I also followed everything my surgeon said eg I am never allowed again to do chin ups to ensure I don't rip the pocket. I still do chest exercises at the gym but I don't do heavy weights for them. It took a year for them to drop and fluff. I could not get rounds due to having a bony chest + having hardly any breast tissue to begin with. I was a 10AA and now a 10C. I got 270cc under the muscle.

    Sooooo.... Revision.... Again

    Just to play the Devil's advocate...……….what do you really think is going on underneath with your decision to have another revision and to go back to the original size you had? Is it really about the sizing? From what you are writing, you weren't happy at 350 and now you are not happy at 275. But you may be happy at 350? I suspect you won't be happy at 350 again. Are you putting pressure on yourself to be "perfect"? Maybe you are already perfect and amazing and sexy and strong and courageous. x

    BA Before Kids?

    You are very young so I assume you don't want children for quite a while yet. If having a BA is something you strongly want, then perhaps go for a few consults with plastic surgeons to gain an idea of cost etc. Also after having children, your body as well as breasts change a lot...…...so you would have to be prepared for a possible revision down the track. In saying that, implants are not a lifetime device. So if you get them in your early twenties, you may be up for quite a few revisions over the course of your lifetime. I got my implants at 39 years of age after having all of my kids. If a BA is your dream and you are aware of all of the pros and cons that come with it, then go for it.

    Considering BA

    My advice would be to go for a few consults with different plastic surgeons. Please don't think that a cheap "competitive" price will give you great boobs. A plastic surgeon has experience + medical knowledge to give you a good result. I did go through a cosmetic surgeon years ago with my BA - he is retired now. He did a wonderful job and I am not unhappy at all. But whenever I need to upgrade, I would definitely be seeing a plastic surgeon. Good luck with it all.

    Body Transformation

    I know that you are looking for advice about surgery. But also don't forget that anything to do with the body is 80% nutrition. A healthy clean diet suited to your body and your body's needs would be a strong foundation in getting back to "you". It would also help to kickstart your metabolism. A good PT who has rehab experience would be a great asset too. Also getting a indepth blood test done to check thyroid, iron, cortisol levels etc may help to see if there are other indicators contributing to the weight gain. I personally always see surgery as a last resort...…. but that is probably due to my body not coping with surgery. Lastly, be kind to yourself and just take each day as it comes. There are always ladies on the forum here to listen to you if you just need someone to talk to. x

    How long did it take you..?

    I had my BA 4 years ago with Dr. Harwood who has retired now. I got 270cc under the muscle and I got teardrops. It doesn't matter what operation I have, I always feel very ill and vomit for the first 3 days after anaesthetic. I stopped taking my painkillers on day 3 after my BA because my husband was going back to work and I needed to be lucid for the kids. I found day 5 I felt human again and I drove a very short distance to take my kids to a park. I only lasted an hour and a half as I was so tired. The first week was the hardest for me. I went back to work after having 2 weeks off. I am a domestic cleaner and I did find the first week back at work a little difficult. But I was fine. I have no regrets about my BA.

    Underwire bras and bikini tops

    I am 4 years post op and I do find most bras don't quite fit my boobs nicely. Someone needs to come up with a line of bras for augmented breasts!

    Showering after surgery

    For the 1st 3 days, I had a small bath because I couldn't get my incisions wet. I was also quite dizzy after the anaesthetic - my body does not deal well with either twilight or general - so standing in the shower was a no go for while.
