  1. I recently saw 925cc motiva implants by Dr Rahdon in Geelong
  2. Hi UnrealBoobies, I can see from her profile that she had her implants done by Dr Tang from The Cosmetic Institute which are no longer operational. I believe Dr Tang may practice surgery at another clinic now. You can usually find more information such as surgeon and implant details by clicking on the members name and viewing their profile. I hope that helps you on you journey and good luck
  3. Polyurethane coated implants have been linked to an increase in the chances of ALCL - I understand last year they were banned in Australia and cannot be used without special authorisation
  4. yes of course, you probably have seen someone who has had a drastic change with plastic surgery but you just didn't know it because we only ever notice the bad looking results out in the real world. There are so many incredible transformations that look completely natural
  5. you might find that this is more likely possible with multiple surgeries. Cosmos clinic just posted one on their live surgery Instagram page yesterday which took the patient up several cup sizes but the real test is how much fat survives. Might be worth a look
  6. how did you go at your consultation?
  7. sorry to hear that - i hope you are able to find another surgeon who can give you the results you desire
  8. Hi Leese88 I haven't had surgery with Peter Callan personally, but I have had the pleasure of attending conferences in which he has lectured along with other renowned surgeons around the world. He definitely has a keen interest in rhinoplasty and I have seen some really great before and after images that he has shown at these conferences and some on his profile here. It would be worthwhile having a consultation with him as I think you will find him very honest and easy to talk to. You will have the opportunity to see more images of his work too and ask important questions like his complication rate, what happens in the case of a revision being required etc etc
  9. I am glad i am not the only one resorting to cutting our kids hair. I found this tutorial quite helpful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCQPSh_Ld4g
  10. We did read that - thankfully most Plastic Surgeons have done the responsible thing and postponed elective surgery in line with the shutdown
  11. I would get in contact with AHPRA for clarification on this https://www.ahpra.gov.au It is common practice for medical practitioners to take a deposit for a procedure in order to secure a procedure date, however, a patient may not be suitable for the procedure and in this instance, you should receive your money back. It would be incredibly disappointed if this wasn't the case.
  12. Check with your surgeon but this should be plenty of time to recover.
  13. Hi there, I have seen some fantastic results from Dr Alex Phoon for this surgery.
  14. who is your surgeon? A lot of surgeons do a nicotine test before surgery particularly for procedures such as a mummy makeover. You run the risk of considerably compromising your surgery results as smoking can cause delayed wound healing, necrosis of the healing tissue etc. You definitely can quit smoking, believe me many of us have been through it ourselves. Would you consider hypnosis? I know some ,people who have had success with this method. I can tell you, once you make it to the two week mark, it will become much easier. I would even consider patches or NRT until the end of the month and then go cold turkey
  15. We haven't had many people on the forum that have had fat transfers for breast augmentation as a stand alone procedure.
  16. That advice depends on your surgeon, some surgeons recommend no surgical bras at all, other recommend 6 weeks, some recommend calvin klein crops etc. The best time for breast surgery is when you have the most time to recover, i.e. school holidays or right before long weekends etc are very popular because you dont need to worry about taking extra time off work, getting kids to school and usually have more help on hand.
  17. I think it depends on if you drive a manual car or not, and whether or not you are on pain medication. Some medication makes it unsafe to drive.
  18. Cupcake this is incorrect. ALL textured implants are linked to ALCL - there has been no reported cases of ALCL with smooth implants. The risk for macro textured implants is significantly higher than micro textured implants though. The numbers keep changing but it is roughly 1: 4000 compared to 1:60,000 for micro textured (https://plasticsurgery.org.au/protecting-patient-safety/bia-alcl/) Ive also seen numbers such as 1:2000 for macro and 1:86000 for macro - i think there is issues with the statistics because of the different brands - you can find more info on the TGA website https://www.tga.gov.au/breast-implant-associated-cancer-or-bia-alcl https://www.tga.gov.au/alert/breast-implants-and-anaplastic-large-cell-lymphoma
  19. Dr Tavakoli did Pia Muehkenbeck's breast augmentation and I believe they are much bigger than a C-D cup. She has 475cc anatomical implants, so even though you think this is a C-D Cup, you might actually be describing more of the DD fuller look. Definitely bring pictures to your consult to show what look you are after. Sam Cunneen and Guy Watts both have lots of reviews on here, try searching in the search bar or view their profiles in the surgeon directory
  20. I think you should investigate what 'recovered' means. Often rapid recovery or flash recovery for breast augmentation refers to things like being able to lift your arms above your head, begin movements and exercises sooner, lack of drains and full mobility etc You may be still recovering from the effects of anaesthesia at 24 hours post op. I think a good indication fo 'recovered' is when you are cleared to drive a car. best of luck
  21. If you are Melbourne based I highly recommend She Science https://shescience.com.au/ https://shescience.com.au/collections/all/products/active-d-classic this bra will lock them down nice and tight - can recommend
  22. You look great and this bikini looks fantastic. You definitely do not look like you have them out there.
  23. Amazing, I am sure you look fantastic. I had a friend who had a similar cut and it suited her so well
  24. oooh im late...what did you choose. I think if you have the facial structure you could pull off the above look but id be tempted to stick it out as you have come this far growing it
