    If you have the recalled textured allergen natrelle implants, there is no action needed to be taken apart from looking out for ALCL symptoms. I believe they only have been recalled from further surgeries if that makes sense.
  2. I don’t have any advice, sorry. I’m hoping to get the same procedure done soon. Hoping it all works out for you and someone else can offer advice. What product did they inject? Can you please keep me updated as this has made me a little nervous. How bruised and swollen were you? I got my lips done about 2 years ago and I was SOOOO swollen and bruised. However, the time before that I didn’t bruise or swell at all. I’m unsure if it’s the injectors fault...
  3. Dr Layt is seriously one of the best in the business. He’s very quirky and a little cocky (he has every right to be). He does many corrections on overseas surgery and cheap cosmetic jobs over here.
  4. No worries ? all the best!
  5. I’ve never told any doctors. I had a cesarean this year and they asked if I had any metal implants and I said no. I didn’t tell them about my boobs either. I worried afterwards but everything was fine.
  6. Hi Guys, Looking for recommendations on injectors in either Brisbane or Gold Coast. I’m wanting my lips done, cheeks and possible anti wrinkle in forehead. The first and last time I had my lips and cheeks done at a LCA clinic I wasn’t very happy. This was at the beginning of last year. My lips still aren’t great, so I really want to find somewhere great. Thank you ?
  7. Thanks for sharing that! It really does pay to see a plastic surgeon.
  8. Great info thank you @TheFox. I think I would definitely go with smooth. I’m just worried that I can spend all the time in the world picking the safest implant and still wind up with CC, bottoming out or any of the other complications that are possible. I guess it’s just the risk we decide to take.
  9. I have allergan Natrelles and was advised early this year that they are one of the higher risk implants with ALCL. I’m breastfeeding at the moment and will be getting them removed when I can. I’m unsure whether I should replace them. It's tough to decide if the risks are worth it. How do I know the ones I replace them with won’t have other issues down the track.
  10. Which brand of implants do you have? I’m thinking of doing the opposite. I’m thinking of swapping rounds for teardrops.
  11. Teardrops look so natural. I personally think the smaller natural look is more ‘in’ now than an augmented look. I don’t like upper pole fullness anymore. With that being said my rounds still looked really natural. No one ever asked if they were fake. Dr Layt would never do the ‘bolt on’ look.
  12. The vectra imagine is VERY inaccurate. I’d personally go teardrop if I had my time again. But it sounds like the rounds would suit the look you’re going for.
  13. I went from a 12b to a 12dd. I don’t really have photos and can’t take any now. I’m currently breastfeeding. I’ll definitely be seeing Dr Layt for my revision when I’ve finished having kids.
  14. Pain can be associated with rupture or capsular contracture. Does the shape seem any different? Hope you get answers soon and hope it’s not bad news.
  15. I’m 166cm and 60kgs and went 385cc round as recommended by Dr Layt. I would definitely trust his recommendations. He is an artist ?
  16. I had sensitive nipples, to the point I would hate my partner touching them. Breast feeding is going to hurt like a b*tch regardless in the beginning. Like @sabP said, they toughen up and you get used to it after a few weeks. I say this all as I have my baby attached ?
  17. You can definitely still breast feed after a BA. I wouldn’t even consider having a BA if you are planning on having children in the next 5 years. Unless the cost of revision (often substantially more than the original surgery) is disposable income ?
  18. Allergan textures such as the natrelle. Mine are the ones banned in the UK ?
  19. I had dual plane, 385cc implants done by Dr Layt. My recovery period was a couple of days. The anaesthetic made me ill for two days. I couldn’t keep down pain meds for 24 hours so ended up going without them. The worst part was getting a good sleep and being comfortable at night time. Pain wasn’t really pain, just uncomfortable. My pain threshold is really bad, I’m a big sook but somehow managed to deal with a BA easily. Everyone is different. I could lift my arms the following day. Hope that helps.
  20. I definitely agree with you, a kit would be great. I feel like I want to try the range but there’s so many products I wouldn’t know what I need or where to begin.
  21. My surgeon gave me a massive role of the silicone scar tape in my take home care pack. My partner can’t even find my scars ? I’m sure as long as you get a good product they will all work really well.
  22. Wait and see what happens on Monday. It’s hard, but don’t think about what ‘might’ happen. Fingers crossed your surgeon is understanding and confident in fixing your boobs.
  23. Symmastia that occurs such a short time after surgery is most likely due to surgical error. I really hope your surgeon is helpful fixing the issue and you’re not left too much out of pocket.
