    Serena90 got a reaction from I HaveBoobs in Do they feel like yours?   
    Mine absolutely felt weird and foreign to me at first and for quite a long time I'd say! Especially in the beginning when you're checking them all the time, getting used to the extra weight/shape, changing silistrips and constantly checking the scars. A few years later and I often totally forget I have breast implants though.

    I know I'm a little late, but Jen from LCA Drummoyne is a great person to go to. My hair dresser goes there and his lips are amazing. I'd go to her too if it wasn't for me visiting Gold Coast on the regular and getting them done up there

    I think the price of products has come down a lot and a lot of places offering 1ml Juvederm as low as $350.  The Ultra Plus is great but if you just want a natural enhancement then the Ultra is a great product and will cost less.  I have the husband issue all the time and if you find an injector who has a lot of before and afters of the look you're after hopefully you can show him that lips these days are done to be full and natural rather then large and disproportionate.  Unfortunately nothing is permanently in the Juvederm range and all fillers will require retreat at 6-12 months.
    Good Luck

    Just give it time - trust me!!! Your boobs are going to look so different.
    I wanted to go with a bigger implant after reading through stuff on here and in my last consult, I talked with my surgeon about going bigger. He and my mum THANKFULLY talked me out of it. I don't know why your surgeon said you weren't the right candidate for 330cc but for me, I have not a lot of natural tissue + really tight skin/muscles from years of competitive gymnastics. Trust in your surgeon as they really do know their stuff. In the days following the surgery, I kept freaking out, waking up thinking I'd made a horrible mistake etc. and over time my boobs changed so much.
    I think you're going to be really happy with your result, just give it some time. It's actually crazy how much they change - just looked back over my old post surgery day photos and my boobs look so tiny and weird compared to how they look now.
    They're going to look awesome, have faith!

    Hey everyone,
    So I had my procedure in February 2015 (wow ages ago now!) and never wanted to tell people.
    I got modest sized implants and went to loads of effort to pre-prepare before the op by using these big silicone breast forms and wearing them under all of my clothes really, really far in advance. I was never one to have bikini photos or any photos of me wearing anything revealing etc. on Facebook as I was always so conscious about my lack of chest...
    Anyway I told a handful of friends (big mistake) and long story short, a couple of my friends ended up telling at least one other person that I'm aware of. They may have even told other people... but I don't really know.
    I'm SUPER happy with how my boobs turned out - they look incredibly natural and I'm really happy with the size (wearing a 10D bra). They don't look too big, they're just perfect for my frame. My now longterm partner who I met not long after the surgery also didn't know they were fake until I told him. I told him as I was really paranoid he was going to guess. He was really surprised when he found out but and said he never would have guessed...
    BUT I'm now really paranoid about whether people know... whether people are going to ask me... I'm always questioning what I wear as I now don't know who knows etc. Really awkwardly, not long after my surgery, a friend of a friend actually asked one of my friends whether I'd had the surgery, and I'm guessing it was because they'd heard it on grapevine through the couple of friends who had told someone else. I never wanted to tell anyone - I worry about what some people will think about me having had the surgery and also I'm just a pretty private person. I'm not someone who tells everyone close details of my life and the main thing that concerns me is I don't want to be known as "that girl with the boob job" or have this part of me be a massive part of my identity - which is why I went to such great lengths to keep the procedure secret (obviously shouldn't have told my close friends) and keep the size/shape to a really natural look.
    Anyway I'm just feeling really anxious about the whole thing and am probably making it into a bigger deal than I should. I don't think I need to go as far as suddenly "coming out" to people and doing a Facebook status declaring that I have fake boobs haha but maybe I should stop worrying about what I wear and if people do ask (no one ever has asked me yet), maybe I should just tell the truth? 
    What would you guys do in my position? I'd love some honest opinions please.

    So true elleg. Some people are probably curious as they're wanting to do it themselves! That's so brave of that woman. I wonder how I can be more like that hehe.
    Omg what a nasty person! It's crazy how some people just don't show any tact at all with things like this... I would NEVER ask someone... especially not like that and not someone I don't know super well. I guess that's why I get shocked when people are like that and I am super nervous about being on the receiving end of that. That's so great that you're happy now though and don't care what people think anymore!!! I really need to get to that stage haha!!!  
    I couldn't agree more... I don't like that phrase at all either because it does sound so belittling.

    When I first had my surgery I told NOONE! I lived in a small country town, I was a farmers wife and no one in my community had plastic surgery.  when I got home from surgery I didn't even want to leave the house because I was so paranoid someone would notice.
    I took my kids to playgroup one day and one of the other mums maliciously said "Did you get your tits done?". I was so mortified I wanted to die.
    Long story short, since people found out and I stopped having fucks to give, I've been so much happier. Im not completely honest about my procedures I've had done and its made my life a lot easier. I'm not ashamed and now embrace it. Plastic surgery isnt such a taboo topic now compared to what it was 3 years ago

    I have been open to my close family and selected friends but otherwise don't feel the need to publicly advertise it.
    If someone approached me with respect I'd happily tell them about it. Still uneasy about the chance/time when a nosy random person will come up to ask. I HATE the phrase "are they fake tits" it just sounds so belittling in my eyes. I feel like saying well yes and no. I have had a augmentation but they are apart of my body, not balls glued on top of my skin!
    Just a silly personal thing I guess ?

    Ive been on the other side of this- me and a friend were talking at an engagement party about getting them done and another lady piped up and said she had hers done! So of course we bombarded her with lots of questions ? it was actually an icebreaker to talk to someone we didnt know that well  and get some good info at the same time! 
    Most women are curious and want to ask about them, sometimes because they are considering it aswell. 
    For me i have only told the people i had to because they would absolutley notice. Im surprised at how secretive i have been about it though- usually im pretty forth coming with anything. After my surgery i will probably just tell people if they ask-

    I actually sold quite a lot on eBay! I had a lot of really expensive ones from nice designers as spending money on lingerie was how I made myself feel better about my lack of boobs, pre op haha.
    The rest that didn't sell or weren't new enough to sell, I gave to one of my friends! She was super stoked and still cracks jokes about how she hasn't had to buy new bras ever.

    Fair enough, everyone has their own opinions  I love her lips front on but not side on. I personally don't like the filler sitting above the lips. I was hoping someone could tell me whether or not it's avoidable or it just comes with the lip fillers.

    Serena90 got a reaction from Kaleidoscope_Eyes in Does a (large) BA make you look fat?   
    That's how I feel too! And it's hard to explain, cuz my implants are not very big...I think for me it was just the adjustment from having nothing there and also because I've always been a very thin person. I feel like I can't get away with having any excess flesh on me now and toning up is something I'm really working on at the moment. Whereas before my surgery, I think I looked very thin more easily!
    I think if you're naturally a small framed/thin person to start with, having really big implants could make you feel big. I've always been a very small person and did competitive sport for years in a type of sport where I had to have a tiny physique. Sometimes my boobs do make me feel a little bigger even though my implants are really modestly sized. 
    Close to my surgery, I also started thinking about whether I should be going bigger but I'm glad my mum and surgeon talked me out of it. I had already upsized a bit from the original plan and after reading about people regretting not going bigger, I started thinking I should too.
    It all comes down to the look you want. For me, having something proportional to my body and not too noticeable was the aim of the game. I wanted to still be able to dress the same as I always have but also feel confident/sexy when wearing a bikini or something low cut. For others, having a big look with wow-factor is the goal. It really depends on each individual person.  I think it all just depends on your figure to begin with, and what is proportional for you.

    Serena90 reacted to Kaleidoscope_Eyes in Does a (large) BA make you look fat?   
    I think this was the point I was trying to get across when I was saying I felt 'fat' with my implants. Prior to having them in, I looked very thin and waif-like and with them, I feel that I look a lot heavier. I know I don't look 'fat' as such but I definitely don't feel I look as thin and lean as I actually am. 
    Edit: I'm getting over those thoughts though because I think I'm seeing something that other people aren't. Also, I believe a lot of my fear of looking 'fat' stems from my earlier struggles with an eating disorder and I think it's just a bit of lingering body dysmorphia that's making me think that way. Unfortunately, I don't think eating disorders ever completely leave you. You're always in remission and although I'm healthy and eat well now, sometimes the old thinking returns. 90% of the time, I think I look hot with my new assets and I'm really happy. It's just that 10% of the time where I have to fight with myself and not let those old thoughts resurface. 
    As said before, I don't think a BA will make you look fat unless you actually are fat. If you're quite muscular and go for a very large implant, looser clothes may make you look heavier but if you learn to dress them, you won't look fat. Go for things that are more fitted at the waist.

    Leave on overnight - you need a minimum 8 hours without showering to get the darkest colour. 
    I do 3x layers of dark, with one hour in between layers (no showering). Then leave for minimum 8-10hrs. 
    Im actually surprised it even does anything after an hour tbh.

    horrible horrible experience as I had a severe reaction to the anaesthetics and didnt think I'd make it through... Mark and the team at Epworth were so incredible... especially the nurses after I woke up, so helpful and reassuring during a traumatic experience.

    I’m actually so impressed with mine that I have no shame telling people. I don’t go around telling people but I had to take time off Uni placement so had to tell my fellow students. All my family know as do my good friends. It’s what you’re comfortable with, there’s no right or wrong with this one ?

    Serena90 reacted to pink butterfly in Telling people post procedure   
    I got mine done 3 years ago and I didn't want many people knowing as I too felt it was a private thing. After a while, I felt a little more comfortable telling a few more people if it came up in conversation re plastic surgery. I never felt any judgement from those people which is why I opened up to them. But I feel no shame in my decision. I have walked a bit of a tough path in life and I felt getting a BA done was a gift I gave to myself for surviving my journey. I feel my boobs are now part of me so I don't feel I have to justify to anyone about my decision to get surgery done. I am in my 40's and I have found over the past few years that I feel more strongly about walking on my path....and those who judge me don't know me........and they are not worth my energy. I think you should be proud of your body. Plus you know in your heart why you originally made the decision to get a BA done......and you shouldn't have to explain that to anyone. The one thing I have learnt in life is that there will ALWAYS be people who judge us no matter what we do. Keep your head high and be proud of who you are. x

    Absolutely  I came out to one of my friends a few months ago. We'd only really started to become friends this year and I'd noticed her checking out my boobies throughout our uni placement. So I just brought it up in conversation. I was talking about dresses I ordered online and asked her if she had much experience with the sizing of those cheaper online Asian stores, etc. She replied with something along the lines of me being tiny and being fine and then added, 'although I'm not sure they're so forgiving with the bust' and I was like 'yeah, that's what I was worried about! It never used to be a problem but I had a boob job last year, blah blah....'. It was such a natural conversation. Not awkward at all. And she was honest and said 'I had wondered if you looked fuller! I'd never noticed you as being busty before but thought maybe I had just hadn't paid much attention before'. Honestly, no big deal, and I felt better coming out with it rather than thinking 'is she looking at me wondering if they're fake?' And even when it comes to people who want to judge and criticise seriously, not that I've had that experience), I'd rather be open about it than have them speculate behind my back and use it against me because they think I'm ashamed or something. If you're open and comfortable, nobody can hurt you with it, because you don't care. Yeah, I had a boob job, don't they look great?
