    If polyurethane implants were better in any aspect, they would be far more widely used than they are. Plastic surgeons in Australia would get the extra training needed to use them IF they were to give patients better results. There have been a lot of women on here with issues with PU implants, which is alarming considering the percentage of women on the forum with these implants is very low. That’s enough evidence for me. Knowing what we know now I would only ever consider smooth implants unless a highly reputable plastic surgeon specifically recommended something else. I have textured implants and wouldn’t advise women to go for anything other than smooth implants unless recommended by a plastic surgeon.

    Which doctors have you heard this from? In all my research I’ve never heard that you should be able to ‘spin’ your implants. Massage while healing - yes. Anatomicals certainly shouldn’t be spun...

    Considering BA

    If you have a skilled surgeon the scarring under your boob will end up right on the crease. I have to lift my boob to find the scar, and it’s that faint that it’s almost impossible to see.

    Considering BA

    If you want transaxilary incisions that is going to seriously limit which surgeons you can go through. Most won’t do it regardless of the implant size and shape. If this incision is important to you, it will have to be one of the first enquiries you make before you seriously consider any surgeon. Make sure it is something the surgeon does regularly, as if it isn’t, you may end up with suboptimal results.

    Fillers under lips causing bumps

    I had my lips botched by a well known clinic chain. They were badly shaped and I had lumps which weren’t visible but I could feel them. The lumps did go away, however the shape had to be fixed elsewhere.

    Just be careful writing negative reviews, even if honest. There have been cases of women being threatened with legal action both on here and other sites if they didn’t remove their reviews. That’s why it’s hard to get accurate information about surgeons.
  7. I can’t believe I’m saying this, I’ve never said this on here, but maybe it would be best to look at surgery overseas. I really don’t believe there are any surgeons over here who specialise in double eyelid surgery or perform enough of them to do a great revision job. A revision is much more difficult than the original surgery.

    Revision of a Dr Miroshnik BA.

    Her profile said she went with Mark Ashton.

    I don’t think Medicare or private health insurance covers anything cosmetic anymore. It has to be a medical issue such as a rupture now I believe. And even then, it’s limited. It’s upsetting, but I can understand why with the number of revisions people are needing especially women getting botched overseas. I basically mainly upped my private health for when I got implants years ago. Looking at dropping my coverage now 😒

    One side smaller after BA

    Sorry to hear this 😥 Do you think they have finally settled? Or do you think there may be an underlying issue? Would you be willing to undergo revision to correct it?

    That is absolutely horrid that he has said that to so many women but gone back on his word. At least maybe thanks to you ladies, others will be informed before choosing to go with him. I think all surgeons should have their revision policy written out. Especially when it is related to surgical error. I understand that it is hard to prove, but for example most often symmastia is due to surgical error.

    Underwire bras and bikini tops

    Same problem here 🙋🏼‍♀️ The underwire doesn’t sit on my sternum. I think it’s because our boobs are more dense and rounded than natural boobs. I don’t think it’s a settling problem.

    Cold before surgery

    Depending on how close your surgery is I would speak to your surgeon before taking anything. Some surgeons advise you to stop taking all vitamins up to two weeks before surgery. That being said, every surgeon has a different opinion on the topic 🙂 vitamin C will most likely be fine. However, I’ve never found it to be much help with sickness once it has already hit.
  14. Not all surgeons advise to do this. Mine didn’t. I still took my BC. Check with your surgeon 🙂 you could stop now for piece of mind. 13 days is a while to get it out of your system.

    Bony sternum

    As @sabP mentioned, the majority of surgeons recommend to avoid any exercises that isolate chest muscles. I was told not to do push ups. Hope @I HaveBoobscan shed some more light and I would also be asking your surgeon 🙂 congrats on losing the 4kgs and your mummy tummy though!
