    Hi Ladies,
    Just thought I'd post to let you all know I got my 420's upgraded to 620's yesterday with Dr Birch at the Breast Institute.
    My original implants were done with Dr Broadhurt at the breast institute.
    Everything is doing awesome and played out the same as the first op.
    Recovery is much easier this time and I woke up in less pain.
    i am only using Panadol alternating with Neurophen every 4 hours but I almost feel like I don't need it.
    I have some swelling thought the center of my breasts and down the sides of my breasts just like the first time but not as bad.
    Dr Birch also bought in my cleavage as this is what I wanted and it already looks great!
    He is fantastic to deal with and look good in a suit too may I add.
    I will post some pics when I go for my first shower tomorrow.

    Dr R told me might take up to 12 months to get feeling back. My numbness has improved but lower pole still numb at five months post op on both sides,  one more than the other.

    Both mine are numb from the nipple down. I'm glad i'd read that this was normal before my surgery or I'd be freaking out. I think they are slowly getting some feeling back

    Nerve regeneration can take months. I found feeling came back around the 4th to 5th month mark. Everyone is different with healing. Three weeks post op is very early days. I know it's hard to not stress, but just remember that your body is currently doing massive amounts of healing. Try to be patient. x

    I'm only 3.5 weeks post op but wish I went bigger. I'm hoping they fluff more over time but I never had square boob post op and I'm not seeing massive differences in my progress photos (in comparison to the pics on the d&f thread).

    sorry your having to go through all this. 
     
    I had a similar experience with them a few years back and had to fight tooth and nail with them to get refunded as I had heard quite a few other girls having similar issues and I didn't want to risk going over there.
     
    anyhow can you contact the medical board, ombudsman, or perhaps even go to the hospital where it was done and keep everything in writing if possible. also try speaking with a no win no fee lawyer they might be able to help you as well. even though your insurance may lapse they still have a duty of care to follow up with the revision if you've already contacted them in regard to this and you can prove they've been sly and not responding or willing to Co operate. 
     
    I hope you et some answers asap.

    I had a secret Pinterest board called "titspiration" where I pinned all the looks I liked and some I didn't. Including ones from his portfolio online. I think that helps articulate more clearly what you're after and definitely helped with me as it made it very clear I would be disappointed with results if I didn't have a lift. 
    He was pretty open on sizing with me too. Telling me he would let me know if what I was thinking was either going to be too big or too small for my body which was good. 
    If you consult with him at his rooms in The Valley you can do the Vectra too which is really helpful (and is what made me switch from the original 335cc I was going for to the 390cc I ended up with).

    I'm in the same boat as the girls above. Had surgery with Dr.R at Northlakes on the 19th - looking and feeling great! Couldn't be happier.
    I curiously asked him about Brazilions as I wanted to know what they were - he is not keen on them, il tell you that much haha!
    I can't fault his professionalism or willingness to answer any of my questions! My first consult he was a little distant and vague, but I went back for a second to clear up any questions and felt completely at ease and 100% satisfied with my choice.
    good luck!

    Hi Meg. I had mine though TBI and was lucky enough to get DR Richardson. I only had one consult with him and felt like I was in great hands so booked straight away. I had my BA done on the 19th Dec and was lucky enough to have it at North Lakes I could not fault any of it.  The girls at TBI are amazing. I was to have my follow up appoitment with DR R on wednesday but there was a family matter so I went over to his private rooms and his nurse saw me and answered all of my questions and changed my dressings. It is only early days for me but I couldnt be happier. Good luck with it all

    May i suggest going through Dr R surgery Brisbane plastic and cosmetic surgery. .you will only see him and he will do thw surgery ..he is priced from $8500 ? 
    I seen him at my consult but Dr B did my post op appointment as Dr was in an emergency family situation.

    I secretly wondered this too! I'm actually feeling so great at the moment - I was horrified to find myself on my stomach the other night even! I quickly turned myself over, but sleeping is proving much easier - I'm sleeping flat and on my back and side with ease! 
    I was concerned with my numb / sore nipples though - so whilst I feel for you, glad I'm not the only one haha!

    It's so funny how instructions vary depending on the surgeon!
    I've to change my tape every week for the first 6 weeks. It's my least favourite thing to do. I hate it. I'm always worried my nipple is going to come off with the tape :(

    Dr B told me leave this new tape on for another week then don't need anything else too. Seems early but I guess he knows what's he's talking about! I might email next week just to double check what else would be acceptable to do either tape or creams

    I can't help much in this regard i'm sorry but just wanted to point out how different my instructions are and it's worrying me… i had Dr Broadhurst and he put on some papery-feeling tape at my 5 day postop appointment (couldn't get exactly a week as i was travelling) and he said leaver hat on for one week then remove and that's it… no more…. and can put on scar treatment such as silicone??? Does that not seem WAY too early compared to what everyone else of here is saying! Stressing me a bit! All these things you never think of before hand haha
