Would lovw to hear if anyone else have gone through this.

    Furry Brazilians melbourne

    I had my furries done with Dr mayson 4 years ago. ALCL was public knowledge from the TGA and he did not advise me of this. I adid ask about cancer and he said there are no links. Great response ay. Anyway I had mine for 4 years and in all that time one side was always sore and sat higher than the other. It had gotten much worse over the 4 years. Mayson would not hear of Capsular Contracture as he says he has never had one case in 8 years. Other surgeons have said that is not correct. 2 surgeons thought I had capsular contracture in the sore one and also that dr mayson had not released the muscle properly when inserting the implants meaning the muscle was pushing down on the implants making it sit higher. Everytime I have had a problem the ladies that answers the phone want to charge me for a consult, even when I called t get an explanation on why I had not been alerted that my silimed furries had been banned only a little while after I had put them in. How on earth can a surgeon not advise of these things. Anyway I have explanted them now and back to square one with scars to match and a bit concave too. The right side did get softer as the years went by but still they felt so unatural in my body and I could feel them if I tried to do exersice. I would advise against implants and look into fat grafting. Yes it may be much more expensive in the beginning but implants have issues and needs to be removed and new ones put in every 10 years at least and that is if you don't have problems. Also some people get the BII illness. Look into this and do the research as there are ladies all over the world sick from their implants. oh and I am about to consult with Tansley on Thursday re. Fat grafting.

    Dr Simone Matousek Fat Transfer to Breast

    Hi, did you end up getting fat transfer? I had my implants removed 3 weeks ago and wanting to do ft within 6 months. I find it difficult to decide on surgeon.
  8. I got a 2nd opinion today from dr choy in sydney. He believes I have capsular contrscture and that my original surgeon did not release that muscle correctly when implanting which is why I have had pain for 4 years and the breast sitting higher than the other. He did not want to do a fat transfer same time as explanting and did not think I needed a lift either. He did keep saying I would look worse after explanting and that I would most likely be concaved. The surgeon in brisbane will do all 3 at once and the lift is to compresd my tissue so he has more to work with for FT. I sm confused as what to do.
  9. HI again Thanks for the info. I am trying to decipher between the different techniques here in Australia and by Dr Bednar in Charlotte USA. He puts alot in, sometimes up to 600cc's (30% is fluid) and gets amazing results. I am part of his facebook group and the ladies there have the fat still after more than 2 years and one 7 yrs+. I have consulted with Dr Chin in Brisbane and he says he can get me to a B cup (no guarantees) in one transfer of 75cc to each breast. He said he will try and out more in but it depends on breast tissue. Did you consult with him? Trying to get everyones experience so I don't need to consult more than 2-3 doctors. I am in Sydney and consulting with Dr ellis Choy on Friday. If you want to pm that fine. Then you can see my pre implant and post photos.
  10. Thanks vlinder. Can I ask who was your surgeon? what size did you start out with and what are you now? How much did your body absorp each time? Thanks again I believe they are causing a few issues in my body and to be honest I have never loved that fake look. Don't get me wrong I love them when wearing clothes that covers them but when naked, in small tank tops I don't love them. I literally hide them away as I think they make me top heavy and I have never worn a bikini since having them. Only the bathers that have a high neck. Also one side has always been sore and it keeps getting worse. I have also got lumps in that breast since getting them which are benign but I am over having biopsies and ultrasounds plus have no upper body strength at all anymore as they make working out very hard.

    Back under the knife again!

    how did you go? which doc are you using? can I ask how many sizes you went up after fat tramsfer? Have you got pics at all? I need my implants removed as I believe they can/are making me sick. I was flat as a board before though so hoping I could get to a b cup
  14. Windering if there are others out there that have one side sore. My left has always bedn sore and numb at the sane time. Its now over 2 years PO and it has never settled. Off course I am freaked out after all the Breast Illness talk recently.

    One side always sore, numb. 2 years PO

    how long have you had yours?
  17. I know I have asked the question about excersize after BA. My surgeon said never to do push ups and newer to use rowing machine. I went to the gym (crossfit) first time today (6 week post op) and my trainer didn't understand why I couldn't use the rower so I tried and it didn't hurt. I did row 1000m (slowly) and there was no pain at all but I could feel the pec muscle flex a bit each time I pulled but nothing like the feeling you would get trying to do a push up. I am a bit sore now a few hrs after. So what have you been told by your surgeon? Do you use the rower and does it bother you?
  18. HI I have had my furries for over 2 years now and since I had them my left boob has never recovered properly. I am numb in more than half the breast and it feels harder than the other. I think that breast was originally a bit smaller so it sits a bit higher than the other now. I have a constant aching feeling which I ignore most of the time and I guess a bit of burning sensation. I think it is mostly the scar area but its hard to really know as I am numb but sore at the same time if that makes sense. In this particular breast I can also feel the muscle pulling when I do hard labour or try and work out. The other breast feels completely normal. It is not a new feeling. It has been there from day 1 and I guess I was hoping it would go away but it seems it never will. I wish now I would have gone for the smaller implant but I listened to my dc and choose the bigger one. The Doctor has checked them and he is confident there is no contracture. Have anyone had these issues. I guess I am nervous of implant illness.

    Deeply regret breast augmentation

    HI I just saw your comment about fat transfer! Where do you get this done? I remember looking into it years ago and I was told it would not last.

    Breast Implant Illness

    Can I ask how tired you feel? I have had mine for over 2 years too and saw the article mentioned above too and freaked out. I have had a hard few years after I got them but we do also have 3 small kids and we lived through a renovation so the stress and a small mental breakdown I suffered I put down to all that. I do feel fine normally but I feel like my memory has gotten so bad and I find it hard to find words when I speak. I put that down to being a home mum that hasn't exercised my brain enough. I was just wondering if you could explain a usual day and how you feel so I can compare. It is a bit stressful to read the article and knowing that I may have to get them removed one day.

    Breast Lump at 5 Months Post Op

    Hi I posted about my lumps a few weeks ago. I had my biopsy and it came back benign but they recommended a core biopsy as the lump looked strange on the scan so back I went. That one hurt... a lot! But it was benign as well. Phew.
  22. HI I had my surgery in August last year and ever since my left breast has always felt tight and sore in the pec muscle. The breast itself does get a bit sore sometimes when I have done exercise and the whole breast has been numb since surgery. It drives me a bit crazy. I had my 6 month check up and forgot to ask about the numbness. Just called him and waiting for his call back tomorrow. Just wondering if anyone are experiencing the same? Last night I also found a small lump in my left breast. It sort of moves around a bit when I touch it and it is very hard. I am a bit freaked out right now. I am seeing my GP on Wed. Anyone experience this??
  23. Hi I went today to have the scan and they could not see what it was so going for biopsy on thur. The other side had lots of cysts but this one they could not see what was. Freaked out but trying to be calm.
