    Shayne got a reaction from LooLoo in BL & BA ladies   
    I am 9 weeks post op BA and BL. I had loads of excess skin and both procedures were done at the one time. Before my surgery I didn't see too many after pics that I thought 'wow they look great!' so I went in thinking that anything would be an improvement on what I had but I wasn't expecting beautiful, round boobs that you would typically see with just a BA. Well I can honestly say, I have beautiful, round, gorgeous boobs with quite minimal scarring even though I had a lollipop lift. I am so happy. Go for it. With a good surgeon who is confident with their work, you will be super happy!

    Hi Tegs033, I really hope my next consults are better.. I like the sound of $14k more than $21k although I'm sure Dr T is worth every cent.. I'll definitely look into the Medicare rebate.. Money back would be fantastic. I don't have my consultation with Dr Moko (on the Gold Coast) until March 9th and it feels like time is going backwards. Now that I've decided I'm going ahead with the surgery I want them yesterday, lol..  I'm still a bit wow, can I really get these! I'm so use to putting myself second. After talking to some of the girls I think I'll see if I can have an over the phone consult with Dr Miroshnik aswell.
    Thanks so much for the feedback hun. I love hearing about other womans experiences, it's all very exciting!. x
    ..I'll have a sticky at Dr Donas pics and reviews too.. xx
    Ooh thanks Shayne! Your really lucky! I'll add him to my 100 page Reflex folder of fave Plastic Surgeons to check out and study over, Hahaha.. Just slightly ocd.. There are so many out there and so much to take in, so recommendations are great. I'd rather go on other people's experiences to narrow the list down.. xx

    @Kimi G my surgeon was Dr Robert Goldman. He is from Perth but does monthly visits to Cairns which is where I live. I am more than happy with my results. ?

    I had a lollipop lift and BA in December 2015. With Medicare and private health rebate, it came to just over $10,000. I was initially quoted $17,000 but it didn't end up being that much even before the rebates. My procedure was 4.5 hours so it wasn't just a straightforward surgery.

    Hi caro82. We are really lucky to have some great surgeons in Perth! If you prefer to opt for a Plastic Surgeon, then Dr Anh Nguyen is wonderful. Other Cosmetic Surgeons you might like to see are Cary Kailis or Robert Goldman.

    Shayne reacted to rattlie in Disappointed, was told breast lift without implants   
    just because a PS tells you he can't do what you want does'nt mean you should keep going to different surgeons until u find one that will, if your PS is highly recommended and has all the right qualifications he is probably just recommending what he thinks is safe for you long term health.
    By all means have more consults for your own peace of mind, i was dissapointed when my chosen PS would'nt give me the size implants i wanted, i could of shopped around and found another PS to do it but my PS was highly qualified and explained the risks of what i was asking and i trusted him.
    when a PS is happy to refuse to do something they think is not in your best interests as opposed to just doing what u want to get a 'sale' is a good sign in imo x

    Shayne got a reaction from Jade01 in Pre approval for item numbers   
    I had a BL and BA and I was able to claim. My BL was classed as a reduction as I did have breast tissue and skin removed which is why it was considered a medical condition. (4.5 hour op). I was given item numbers by my surgeon. I didn't get any pre approval from Medicare. I also budgeted for 17,000 which was my initial quote as my private health fund wasn't wanting to commit to any rebates despite me giving them item numbers. On my admission, I only paid the $500 excess. I did pre pay my surgeon's fee and the anethetist's fee. I waited until after my surgery to receive my final receipts from the surgeon and anethetist. I completed a two way claim form through Medicare (download online) and submitted this form with the receipts to Medicare. That afternoon I received the rebate from Medicare and a couple of days later, I received the rebate from my private health insurer. It was very quick and easy. I paid for my implants myself and submitted my receipt to my private health directly. I am still waiting for this to be paid in full but I am confident it will be. My surgery wouldn't have been 17,000 anyway as I was quoted a little higher but it ended up coming in at under $10,000. ? Hope this helps.

    Vee, if what you are having done is purely cosmetic then Medicare and private health will not cover anything. In some cases, reductions, lifts and tummy tucks will be covered.

    @Colleena what do you mean by Cardio? I assume you are not running so just wondered what your exercise may entail at this time. I am just walking and cycling and generally trying not to elevate my heart rate. Keen to hear what program you are following ?

    I am 4 weeks post op and I am back to walking and cycling on a stationary bike (no resistance). I am however still sore and sensitive. At times I feel like I am sunburnt and my boobs are sore to touch. I am only sleeping in my  carefix bra now as it just isn't giving me enough support during the day as my boobs were constantly feeling sore. I am now wearing a wire free Berlei sports bra which has reduced the soreness significantly. I am not yet able to stretch my arms fully which is difficult when trying to hang washing. Sleeping is difficult as I am still laying on my back, propped up on pillows. Seeing my surgeon on Wednesday so I am keen to discuss how things are going at my visit. People keep asking if I am frustrated at not being back into exercising fully and I am honestly not, as I know my body is just not ready.

    Not trying to be rude but from post op experience I wouldn't recommend a Lorna Jane Bra, I honestly couldn't think of anything worse than putting one on like this post op. You would be better off with a proper post op surgery bra such as Carefix etc. 
    goodluck. xx

    Shayne reacted to imperfectly_lou in Too much too soon??   
    My understanding is that you shouldn't swim in a pool or at the beach for at least 4-6 weeks to ensure the incisions are healed and you don't risk an infection. Did your surgeon give you instructions about swimming? It's great you are feeling so well but it's best to be sensible. You could risk bleeding, implant displacement or infection doing too much too soon.

    Hi Everyone, hope recovery is going well for you all. Day 19 and continuing to do well. Have started walking agin over the last 3 days which has been great. I ended up buying a Berlei wire free bra to walk in. I just didn't feel my post op bra gave me enough support. Wore it for the first time today and I felt much more supported. Managed to get my size from Myer at a sale price ?. My main struggle at the moment is sleeping on my back, which is what I said in my last post I think. Need to just persist with it and will speak to my surgeon at my 4 week check. Again, hope you are all doing well.xo

    Shayne got a reaction from thesinglemumma in BA in Cairns   
    Yes I did and I am very happy so far. My surgery went for 4 hours at the Cairns central day surgery. When in recovery though, I developed a haematoma which Dr Goldman picked up straight away and this was removed in another 30min procedure. I ended up staying the night at the cairns private. It wasn't a hassle at all and all staff were very professional and I was well looked after. I went and saw Dr Goldman, day 2 post op for a quick follow up. He phoned me after about a week to see how I was going. The nurses at the day surgery removed my dressings 10 days post op. I will see Dr Goldman again on 6th of Jan. My op was not straight forward by any means and so far things are looking good, keeping in mind it will be 9-12 months before I see the final results. I would recommend Dr Goldman without hesitation.
