  1. 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.
  2. Oh Cornflakegirl I am sorry to hear your boobs have bottomed out. The BA journey is not always easy for some ladies. My heart goes out to you. Keep us posted with your journey.
  3. Sorry to hear this Stemschicky. That is a tough journey to be on and as you said it has only been a year since your initial surgery. I truly hope everything works out for you. Definitely touch base here and let us help you here on those rough days where you have had enough of things. x
  4. 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.
  5. Time flies hey! One year beautiful boobs anniversary! It's a bit of a journey with the healing process but I am glad you feel great one year on. x
  6. Oh you poor thing! It must be hard with one healed boob and another boob on the healing journey. Just think in a month's time, you will be much further along and the swelling would have greatly reduced. I am thinking of you. x
  7. Cheap isn't always better. It is your body and you are worth spending money on to get a great result...…..not a second rate one. x
  8. @donatella works as an injector and always gives grounded advice on this forum. Hopefully she can give you some insight as to what to do next.
  9. Good for you that you feel amazing! If you find anything that works on the neck, please let me know! I am 43 years old and the ol' turkey neck is beginning! I am using at home dermal rolling + Retinol A cream. But I am always on the look out for something else. I don't want to go down the surgery track.
  10. I didn't have a choice to get overs as my chest is too bony and I don't have a lot of breast tissue to start off with. So I had to get unders.
  11. If you are that itchy I would contact your surgeon. Your skin may be having a reaction to the tape.
  12. I am so sorry to hear you are going through this. x
  13. That is exciting! Keep us posted. x
  14. RE arms, you would need to focus on your triceps, biceps and deltoids. Any time that you use free weights or weighted machines, you should always engage your core first. This will help with maintaining your abs and back but it will also assist you with good balance to ensure your form is correct. A good PT should work with you to put together a safe programme for your body goals.
  15. You are 26 years old and an adult. I agree with the ^^…………..pay off all of your debts re loans and find another rental so that you are not financially connected to your parents. Then start saving for the BA. You will feel so good when the time comes for your BA surgery and you have got there financially yourself without any help from your parents. You can do this! x
  16. Could you go for another consult before surgery? As you said, your breasts have changed again with the breastmilk now dried up. You may be better off to delay surgery and save up more $$ to ensure everything is done right. Let us know how you go. x
  17. If I had to upgrade or revise a few years ago, I would have been like yourself and gone for what I know which is the furry Brazilians.....which is what I have currently. I am 4 years post op and very happy with the outcome. They look natural to me...…...and to my husband. But with the controversy with them now, if I had to have a revision soon I personally would be researching other brands of implants and seeing what the plastic surgeons recommend for me. It's your body and you have a right to what you think is best...…...but I would advise you to also look at other implants.
  18. You may find if you invest in a good dentist and orthodontic specialist, your overbite can be changed which would then affect the shape of your face. Good luck with it all.
  19. I only had a straight forward BA done a few years ago, and I definitely wasn't back into normal activities for the first 5 days. On the 5th day, I drove only a short distance when I took my kids to the park. We stayed for an hour and I was ready to go home by then. I took 2 weeks off work. I know that everyone heals differently but you wouldn't want to over do things and hurt yourself. "Go slowly" may be your best approach and don't expect too much of yourself during that 1st week of healing. All the best with your surgery. x
  20. I think you look fine. But if it bothers you, why don't you see a professional make up artist who can teach you how to contour your face with makeup?
  21. That is awesome with your upcoming surgery. Remember to eat light so that the body puts its energy into healing you rather than into the digestive process. I halved the size of my meals once I felt like eating properly again. I am a gym junkie too so I understand the difficult mental battle when exercise can't be done. On day 5 after surgery, I went for a slow walk. Then each day I gained more energy to walk faster. I made a fitness plan with my surgeon about when to go back to exercise and when I could do that. This really helped my mind so that every little bit of exercise I was allowed to do felt like great achievable goal.
