  1. So happy for you! Yes I’m still loving mine. I just don’t think about them anymore which is what I wanted! They are the boobs I always thought I should have had!! Yours are looking great ?? hope the healing continuing fine!
  2. Wow. Haven’t been on here for ages so just catching up but saw you posted pics! So glad you finally got there and they look awesome!! Who did your surgery in the end?? Congratulations!!!
  3. I had dual plane and tgey only looked really odd for the first maybe 5days when I had frankenboob and they were square. I wore a dress that dad a scoop neck but not low cut and wideish straps. It was black tie so I wore navy and no one noticed anything. I am not a hugger and ly friends know this so don't try so that wasn't an issue for me. As far as looks go I would think by then you would be fine. I
  4. Depends on what you want to do on the formal night probably. I went to a wedding at about two weeks post op and was fine. But, I didn't drink, wore a dress I could wear a post op bra in, and didn't dance. If you going to take it easy should be fine but no physical activity for six weeks includes dancing etc.
  5. To get a ride home from hospital, that was all the help I had and all that I needed. good luck!
  6. Everyone is different from what I hear. I am 12 months post op and only just got feeling back in left nipple a couple of weeks ago, right one was much earlier. My left breast is still numb in a couple of patches underneath.
  7. Totally fine - just don't use banisters as will hurt to put wait on if lean on banisters.
  8. I thought about getting Brazilians but decided they weren't right for me as I was flat chested and didn't think I would get a natural look but would look bolted on. If you are thinking about Brazilians I would consider having a consult with someone who doesn't just do Brazilians so you can find out if right for you. I went through TBI as well, shame they closing. I had Phil Richardson, last I heard he had dropped his price to about $8,500.
  9. 77% correct, clothed ones are hard!
  10. There was another patient on this forum of Dr M's who had an internal bra and had a really rough recovery. If you search for the thread called "my recovery" by Maisie F you can read her story (sorry not sure how to link it). So you are not alone but you might be in for a slower recovery than a straight BA. Hang in there, hopefully each day is better than the last xx
  11. I wouldn't beat yourself up. Wouldn't even occur to me to be careful after so long. I've been training completely normally since 5months post op. Hope you are better now and it was just some normal muscle strain rather than anythibg BA specific?? What did the doc say?
  12. i don't know if it's the best idea not to take it as prescribed. Pain meds work best when keep ahead of the pain so are much less effective if try and save them by extending the gap between taking them. If pain not better speak to surgeon tomorrow. Hope you feel better soon.
  13. Maybe a topic could be created called "spam" so all the spam goes there and doesn't fill up the forum!! ?? The main thing that has reduced my use of this forum is all the spam.
  14. I had a cold when I had my surgery, they checked my temp and asked if coughing up yellow (chest infection) and said good to go. It was anaethetists call. It wasn't that fun coughing while recovering but I was glad they went ahead and the codeine in the pain meds helps a cough anyway.
  15. I think you look amazing! You have really awesome natural result! Your nipples look pretty even so is that why ps says dropped? But I can see one looks "fuller" underneath. What did they look like pre op? I assume they should look the same now just bigger??
  16. Not a TCI patient but just wanted to say sorry you had crap experience. How is the recovery going now? I hope you end up with a great outcome!!
  17. This is with the actual sizers in blue is post op - green with sizers - they still look bigger than how ultimately turned out ...
  18. Top pic is rice sizers made up to 300cc, bottom pic is 360cc implants. Rice sizers look so much bigger than when they are in IMO.
  19. I got a certificate from surgeon - they don't even use company name or anything so it says nothing about it being plastic surgery. He asked what kind of work I did and then gave me a certificate for a week and said shouldn't do some of my duties for another week or so (lifting heavy stuff).
  20. Pleased to hear @oct16 look forward to hearing about your trip and how it all goes!
  21. I had surgery in August and my feet were freezing, worst part of the whole day was my cold feet (wore thongs in Brisbane) so definitely go the uggs! I rocked up in track pants and a hoodie so why not got the whole hog!!
  22. I went through the breast institute so they had a compression bra rather than the lorna Jane one which I preferred as felt needed that compression!
  23. I'm now a 10dd but they not huge, don't get in the way of training. I was worried that cleans etc would be different/hard but you just automatically adapt and I've never hit the girls. You might laugh about going back to just benching the bar but when I started to build strength back up at 6 weeks post op I wasn't even benching the bar - spent 4 weeks lying on floor (to restrict rom to a safe level) benching Dumbbells and started with 5kg! Gradually increasing until at 10 weeks post op I was benching a 15kg bar and then slowly built back up again from then (My 1rm preop was 55kg). I use a close grip on the bar to be less impact on chest - same with push ups. It feels frustrating and slow at the time but worth it to take it slow! Took me 5 months to get back to lifting what I was pre-op. Another couple months for pull up strength to return. 10 months post op and I am back to training like normal and stronger than pre-op.
  24. Mine are still fairly hard at 10 months post op but still have some softening to do. I started very flat though so I think mine are slow to D&F and will probably never feel completely "natural" due to that. The more tissue you have / have breastfed seems to help them be softer - no complaints from the boys though and I am certainly used to them.
  25. I have the nagor 360cc HP (through Phil Richardson) I was initially tossing up between 300 and 330 but went 360 to achieve that look. I also told Phil I wanted full C/ small D look which is what I got. I am 173cm tAll, size 8-10, same BWD as you but started from flat. I can see what you mean with wanting the wider base - I take it you are looking for side boob? But I would go the bigger if it was me - I seriously don't think the difference in those two sizes would make you either too big or too small but at the end of the day you have to think if you would be more disappointed if they end up too small or too big and make your choice from there I think. I also borrowed sizers and wore them for a weekend tried them on with lots of stuff which helped me get used to the size and to make my choice. Good luck!
