  1. Going to see Szalay at precision clinic in Brisbane tomorrow after seeing a PS last year. I am dubious going to a cosmetic surgeon as I am slightly tuberous. can a cosmetic surgeon lower inframammary folds or score under nipples to reduce puffiness? I have him fix tuberous breasts by just using anatomical implants over muscle and they look great. has anyone had any experience with him? thanks x x
  2. Jess they're looking amazing!! I was wondering how much Richardson charges for tuberous breasts/all up how much it was that you paid? Was it easy to apply for the rebate from medicare? I was all set to go with Raja Sawhney last year but chickened out and now I am starting the process all over again! Thanks! Feel free to private message me x
  3. I think it depends on the surgeon's policies and the incision site. Will definitely need to go if you get periariola for instance My friend had a crease incision and had to remove hers though, so be wary that it might occur. I'm really hoping that with plastic bars I'll be able to keep mine in.
  4. Yes please, alright if i follow you Comtom? It's so hard looking at normal BAs and having to imagine how they'd turn out with a tuberous breast.
  5. Did some quick calculations and it seems like I will be able to afford a BA as early as Feb next year! However, I don't have private health cover and I know little about what they include when you choose to have a surgery and whether it's worth it (or cheaper) to have it before surgery. What is covered by PH if you get a BA? surgical costs or anaethetists? Does having insurance cover you in any damages or problems should they occur? How much is it and did you have to have it for a year before making a claim? What category do BAs go under so I can make sure that I would be covered should I get PH? I may be eligible for medicare items, does that change anything? Sorry for the spam of questions but googling didn't help me very much and I don't know anyone who has been through anything similar. If anyone has any advice or recommendations of providers I would be very grateful. Thanks so much <3
  6. They look amazing Em!! So happy for you, hope there's not too much pain. Did you end up with 350ccs?
  7. The Vectra images are infamous for showing wide wide cleavage gaps, as they project from the nipple direction and don't take into account that the rib wall is pretty much straight, and that's what the implant will be sitting on. They are just a computer generated image after all so I wouldn't stress and if that's the biggest size you can fit in then I'm sure they'll still look perfect and be an improvement in size to what you have atm! All the best for November <3
  8. Hey Jehllie, realised that I added you on IG witihout messaging you here first >.< Sorry. I'm K_Tasha, would love to see how your progress is doing! they look so amazing and it gives me so much hope for my boobies x
  9. Hey Cupcake, any chance you had nipple piercings that you were allowed to keep in?
  10. Well I'm after slightly smaller boobs than that and have been recommended 235-270cc, so that sounds about right but as above it all depends on your frame. I'm 33" bust/ 28" (27 when thin) waist/ 35" hip and 168cm. If you're after a natural look I would say go with the smaller option, you can always wear a padded bra, bralets look better with smaller boobs and larger implants are much more likely to look fake on a thin frame (which it looks like you have if your dp is you). you can always upsize but if they're too big/fake looking the skin might stretch out and not recover if you change to smaller ones. Just my two cents, but then again, I have not had a BA yet or experienced the boob greed.
  11. Hey MandyS, hope the strap and massage has helped, how are you going now?
  12. Thanks Aljen, it might be worth saying that I am only getting small implants (275cc) under the muscle too, glad that someone with small implants has commented as I know a fair few here have much bigger ones I think if I had 350cc+ I wouldn't think of wearing anything less than a crop. A fair array of answers, so I guess as always depends on the person Thanks everyone for replying. I need to invest in some more crops, I had no idea that they existed until a few weeks ago and now I live in them, so much more comfortable than bras!
  13. Have read some posts where ladies have had a BA and now need to wear a bra every day as they experience pain without or some other reason... was wondering if it was to do with size or placement or age? I hate bras and only wear them to hide my pointy boobs, I'm a bit scared that if I get a BA I'll be bound to one forever, even with nice boobs Does anyone here go braless every once in a while/every day? is it okay to do so if you have sub-muscular placement? (I know it's not recommended with overs as there's no support) Those who do skip bras have you noticed any excessive drooping? thanks guys, would love to hear your experiences x x
  14. Have only had two consults and have made no moves to book a surgery yet (still deciding) but I would definitely recommend talking to Dr Sawhney on the GC, he is a lovely down to earth guy who I found quite easy to talk to and feel comfortable around. He measures everything by hand also and gives you in depth explanations as to what he would do in the surgery to best suit you. Best of luck!
  15. Thanks for your story Chloe, and I'm glad it turned out so well for you despite the rough road. I'm still quite tempted to get them done at some point but it's so hard to justify spending the money when 11k could go towards a house deposit I think I may get a consult with Dr Theile, he was on my lists as potential surgeons and it sounds like you had a great experience with him. My claim with Sawhney went to medicare, not sure if has been approved yet but it was going to take 3k off the price of the surgery. I'm just so scared of having to go through multiple surgeries should anything go wrong; half the time I feel like I can deal with my boobs but during summer especially I just wish that I didn't have to constantly wear a bra to have a 'normal' shape and that I could find bikinis that I could fill. EDIT: Would you mind telling me what size you got also? I saw in a previous comment you said 'small round', and I was wondering if you stuck with it or ended up with large boobs I have only really seen stories where girls put in high CCs and ended up as a D, and while they look great on them I don't think I'd want more than a C on my frame, I like skimpy tops and not needing to wear bras. I am an A/B and have been recommended 270cc .
  16. Hey Laydee, I'm pretty worried that after the surgery I'll be still conically shaped but just with bigger boobs :c I guess that's where the anatomical under muscle placement comes in to try to force some lower pole. Is there anything they can do to reduce puffy nipples? My areolas aren't too big and my PS said that there's no point messing with them until after I've finished with kids and if then i want them reduced i can if/when i get my probably saggy implants lifted :P. Do you mind adding me to your gallery? I've been reading your BA journey and would love to see how they turned out!
  17. Thanks so much, I'm not expecting them to be a life changer and have pretty good self image with my natural body; which is what is halting me from getting them done I know they could be so much worse and for that I'm thankful. Had a bit of a revelation today, I think this research has driven me into a bit of an obsessive frenzy. Instead of focusing on learning a new language and training for dance like I set out to do this half of the year I've spent most of it reading horror stories of surgery and staring at boobs, others and my own and picking physical faults on everyone. I feel like it's a bit toxic for me Now that I know what BA's are all about I think I may go awol here until the end of the year and see how I feel when I have a (hopefully) rockin' and healthy body and mind. Thanks for the support x x
  18. Still deciding whether plastic surgery is something I want to commit to for the rest of my life.. I'm also in the process of getting healthier and was planning to reevaluate how I feel about my body when I'm down another 5-10kgs and as fit as I want to be I know it won't do anything for my boobs but if I'm leaner then I may feel like I no longer need to balance out my bottom half. I was planning to wait until late next year during uni holidays so I can save in between and also have a good amount of time for them to recover before needing to deal with fulltime work/study (luckily I get the choice to do this). What is the etiquette for booking? Do most people just book for the next available surgery date? Thanks so much for the references, I'll search them up now Also, just FR'd you if that's okay
  19. Hi Sam, which organisation or university? Can we see a link to the study profile?
  20. Thanks for the FR, it's so awesome to be able to talk to people in the same boat. You definitely had more boob than me pre-implant so the risk of double bubble must increase the less tissue you have. I'm scared of having the same shaped boobs after the surgery but just bigger.. but i guess that's less likely to happen with anatomical implants. I'm also scared of getting boob greed but I love having small boobs currently.
  21. haha, I feel like a child I am so excited. It's still a huge decision whether to go through with it or not and the possibility of it going wrong or one not dropping etc post op makes me so unsure. He recommended scoring on one or both sides (can't remember), he believed that he could get the best control from inframammary incisions. He said he could reduce one nipple if I really wanted to make them even but then I would have the scars on one side and as I want to breastfeed in the future there's little point. He can always fix it up if I end up getting a lift or another surgery after kids; Slight asymmetry is natural and does not bother me in the slightest Did you end up with double bubble? Is it something that can develop over time or does it settle in quite quickly post op? Did you have different sized implants put in? He put down 235 and 275cc as he felt like overall the consequences of putting in different sizes would be less than reducing one... What are the consequences of asymmetrical implants? I forgot to ask him to explain. Thanks <3
  22. Glitter Gal what cc did you have put in? Not sure if it's the angle but it's looks like you fluffed up like crazy! they look great From how everyone else's here has d and f'd since day 6 I think you're going to be fine! Do you mind if I FR you? I'm getting dual plane and slightly tuberous as well but was recommended 270ccs and now I'm worried about size... I'd love to hear updates Did your surgeon talk about risk of double bubble with tuberousness at all? What is test drop? same as radial scoring?
  23. Had a consult with Dr Sawhney yesterday about a BA for my mildly tuberous breasts. He was incredibly understanding and took the time to hear what I wanted to achieve. He said that he could see that I had done the research and openly discussed the finer points of the surgery with me and what he would exactly be doing in my surgery. He took into account my whole body shape and chest structure before recommending the implant. All of these things I did not experience with my first PS. He recommended 275cc anatomicals dual placement which is exactly what I was hoping for, he would go to 350cc if I wanted but warned me that with increased size increases my risk of double bubble (cheers for the heads up) but he could fix it with fat grafts if it occurs (he is the most experienced surgeon for fat grafts in Australia). Does anyone here have any good or bad reviews of Dr S? Any post op girls I would love to see your results, especially if you were tuberous. He does most of his work on mastoplexy patients so they may not be on here but I was very impressed with his honesty. thanks guys
  24. If the realself article doesn't explain I believe that unders and dual plane are the same but dual plane placement cuts the bottom muscle fibres of the pectoralis major so that the implant is free to drop below the muscle. This is an incredibly thorough article on all things BA and the current research and procedures. http://clinicalgate.com/breast-augmentation-3/
