  1. Day surgery but I needed my husband to help me with everything in the first 3 days - bathing, going to the toilet etc. I have had laparoscopies etc and my body does not cope with anaesthetic. I had under the muscle and even though the painkillers helped, I still was very uncomfortable. On the 5th day, I really turned a corner and began to feel human again.
  2. I have textured Silimed implants which are now no longer used here in Australia. I also got my implants 5 years ago. I just have had a mammogram + ultrasound and the implants are fine. I understand there are risks with this implant but at this stage I cannot afford to replace them. I will just keep a close look out on my health.
  3. Don't listen to strangers who sit behind a computer and like to criticise others. I think your nose looks fine and quite masculine. But if it really bothers you, then I would suggest to go and see a few reputable plastic surgeons who can give you proper advice.
  4. 6 weeks post op is early days! It can take up to a year for the D & F process to finish. You would still have some swelling and the muscles would still be tight after surgery. Try to give it time. x
  5. I went with some pictures I found off the net of what kind of boobs I would like. The surgeon did say my anatomy would determine what he could do. But we were in agreement with a teardrop implant as I wanted the natural look and I didn't have much breast tissue to start off with. I asked about sizing and what would suit me. I asked how much time I would need off from work. I asked how long the implant would last and the percentage of rotation with a teardrop implant. I did take a friend with me for support. Five years on and I have no regrets. All the best for your consult.
  6. I started off as a 10AA cup (aka flatter than flat!). I got 270cc under the muscle which took me to a small C cup. So if you are starting off with not much breast tissue then I would say yes.
  7. I am 44 years old and I use The Ordinary's product which is the caffeine eye solution. I also use The Body Shop's vitamin C serum + Neutragena's eye wrinkle cream. I also use a face primer + eye primer before I wear makeup and it does make a big difference to the skin. I haven't gone down the cosmetic surgery track for eyes. I also ensure I drink plenty of water during the day as well as having a nutritious diet to help with the skin. I also use a collagen powder in my daily Nutribullet. I am still getting wrinkles of course...…..but I find with my dry skin I have to work harder with helping it stay hydrated. Hope that helps a bit.
  8. My question to myself when I was so scared and unsure was "If I get to the end of my life, would I have regrets about not getting my boobs done?". I then knew the answer. Everything in life is scary...…...particularly having kids...…..getting married...…..driving in the car every day. You have done your research, you have seen 6 surgeons and you have obviously been really sensible gaining all the information you need in order to make the best decision for your body. As you said, no one can make this decision for you. Maybe you just need more time and that's okay too. For me, I got sick of feeling like sh!t and that in the end outweighed the fear.
  9. I had the exact same feelings as you prior to surgery and I also had researched having a BA for many years. But after breastfeeding 3 kids and having 10AA cup boobs on a skinny body, I felt like crap. In the end, I made the decision to go ahead and so at the age of 39, I got implants. I went for a natural look with teardrops under the muscle and am now a 10C cup. I have had my implants for nearly 5 years, and I have absolutely no regrets. Life is too short to feel like crap. Plus my kids have a happy and confident Mum. x
  10. I had to have a mammogram (+ ultrasound) last week due to my GP finding a lump in one of my breasts. I have never had a mammogram before and the medical staff could not have been nicer about the situation. They were so compassionate. I did have to sign a paper about agreeing to the very small chance my implants could rupture due to the mammogram. But I have silicone so I wasn't too worried. Plus I have some amazing women around me who needed to have their breasts checked for their lumps and they both had aggressive cancer leading to mastectomies. So I didn't want to muck around with it. RE rupture, if I thought that I would probably go for ultrasound as my first go to.
  11. My surgeon has said I am a small C cup. I didn't want to go too big as I have a small frame and am unfortunately not curvy. I am happy with my sizing.
  12. I got 270cc high profile. That took me from a 10AA cup to a 10C cup. I got my implants at the age of 39...…….you have youth on your side with being 20 years old and healing more quickly. I have had my implants now for nearly 5 years and have no regrets.
  13. Did you get over the muscle? That is supposed to be a quicker and easier healing process than under the muscle which is what I had. I am a gym junkie + work as a domestic cleaner but even I found the healing process difficult. But I also find my body does not cope with anaesthesia so that would be an added factor in the healing too. As you say, every one is different with how their body copes with surgery + the healing process. It's great you are feeling so good!
  14. Your body is doing a lot of healing. I went back to work after having 2 weeks off, and that first week back at work really knocked me around. I didn't touch alcohol for a few weeks mainly because I wasn't craving it. At the moment, my advice to you is to make the best and healthiest choices to give your body a chance to heal. Maybe leave the alcohol and drugs for another month? Or as you said leave it for a couple of weeks but maybe go lightly with it first?
  15. Good luck with it all. Let us know how you go. x
