    HarpersBizzar got a reaction from Kazmack in Travelling alone...   
    I'm having my ba in Syd so not a lot of help but I do work in travel so if you're not going to book your flights etc though a travel agent I'd just make sure that the hotel you choose has 24hr room service and a round the clock concierge incase you need anything through the night. Make sure they do a daily linen and towel change as after your op you'd want everything to be really clean. Somewhere that offers free wi-fi too so that you can keep in touch with hubby. I think that a hotel with a pool would be good too as even though you won't be able to swim at least you can relax outside on the lounges and not have to stay in your room all the time. Some lower priced hotels don't alway offer these services so make sure you don't just shop by price. Also I'd prebook your transfers. Private car transfers in Phuket from airport to hotel and back are not much more than shared ones and that way you don't need to share with anyone else or stop at multiple hotels on your way to and from. Having a driver to meet you at the airport/hotel and carry your bags is great and that way you don't have to haggle over prices and everything is already taken care of. 
    As jinx369 mentioned the Thai people are lovely and very accommodating.
    Good luck

    HarpersBizzar got a reaction from Needboobs in My BA with Dr Miroshnik   
    Hi ladies,
    today is day 3 post op for me so I thought I'd share my journey so far. Just a warning this is an essay
    To be perfectly honest getting a boob job was never something I had ever considered. I have always had small boobs but they were full and perky and I had always told myself I would rather have small real boobs than big fake ones. I also tried to make myself feel better about small boobs by telling myself that when I got hit on by a guy at least I knew it wasn't because of my boobs! 
    I had heard that after you have babies your boobs shrink but I thought I would not fall into that category as I didn't see how they could possible get any smaller......how wrong I was about that one!! After having two bubs and breastfeeding both my boobs not only shrunk but they sagged and became deflated. The only things that got bigger were my nipples. Yuck! 
    A friend of mine who had similar boobs to my pre baby ones got a boob job while she was back in the US visiting family and they were amazing. Not large she got 265cc rounds unders but I thought they looked great and just what I wanted mine to look like. For me knowing someone who had such natural looking implants really changed my views and I started to think that maybe it was an option I would consider. I finished breastfeeding my baby in Feb this year and within a month got to see the true results of what my boobs would be looking like for the rest of my life. I hated them so much; even to the point where I didn't want my husband to look at them or touch them and I started wanting to have the lights off when we had "playtime". I decided that this was no way to live so I started to entertain the idea of getting a BA. I spent the next 6 months doing research. I started with all of the medical side of things first like the different types of implants you can get, how they are put in, side effects, horror stories, long term effects, longevity etc. Then I stated to look at where to get them done. I heard a lot about Thailand as I know they are well known for trans-gender surgery so have surgeons with great skill and reputations. My only reservation with Thailand was that I knew you needed follow up appointments which wouldn't be done face to face and also if there were any complications I would prob need to head back overseas or pay for a surgeon here to fix any issues. Also I have a friend from Thailand who is a nurse and she mentioned that all the Thai's are heading to Korea for their work now so I decided that was too much hassle to save a few thousand dollars. 
    I then started  to research here in Sydney. For me the choice between a Cosmetic surgeon and a Plastic Surgeon was a pretty simple one. If I was going to get this done I was happy to pay for someone I considered to be an expert in the field of Plastic Surgery. Google became my best friend and that is how I stumbled across this forum. The info on here is amazing and I loved reading everyones stories and searching all sorts of info to help me make my choice. Once I found a few surgeons I liked the sound of I started to check out their websites, instagram and facebook accounts. Their credentials and reviews were all great so it really came down to who's work I liked the best. Because I wanted to look as natural as possible and not go too large Dr Miroshniks pics appealed to me the most. I rung and booked a consult for Sept. He was great, had such an easy manner and was very matter of fact. Made jokes and put me at ease. Basically as soon as I took my top off he said "this is what we need to do and don't worry I'll make you look amazing" To me he seemed so experienced and knowledgeable. I went home and chatted to my husband and paid my deposit the next day. I booked for Dec as I knew my hubby would be off for two weeks to help look after the kids.
    Basically between Sept and Dec I became obsessed with this site, looking up as much as I could, reading loads of stories and going through a few emotions of whether I was doing the right thing or not. Everyone I told was really supportive and the only ones who had reservations were those concerned about that fact I was having surgery which always carries risks.  I had a freak out on Thursday when I received the call from the hospital to tell me what time I had to be there the following day as I think that was when reality actually kicked in. I had to be at the hospital at 8 for a 9am surgery which I was happy about as there would be no waiting around all day. I went to the East Sydney Private Hospital and I cannot speak highly enough of the staff there. Everyone I encountered was so friendly, joked with me made sure I was feeling ok every step of the way and I knew that I was going to be in great hands. Dr M came in to measure me up and he caught me eyeing off his coffee and joked that it was a bit mean of him to bring it in so he'd put it on the other side of the room so I wouldn't try and steal it! We just chatted about stuff while he drew some artwork on my chest. They all seemed very good at keeping me distracted from what was actually going on. He gave me a wink as he left the room and said "don't be nervous everything will be fine" The anaesthetist Dr DaSilva came in next to chat  about his side of things and again he was very professional and friendly. I was taken into the theatre which was a bit daunting as I haven't had surgery before. I lay down on the bed and they chatted to me about Christmas while putting the cannula in my arm and the next thing I knew I was waking up to someone calling my name. I was very groggy and just wanted to sleep and could feel a tight sensation on my chest. Once I was a bit more with it the nurses put on my sexy new bra, got me dressed and moved me to the recovery area where I demolished the food they gave me; yoghurt, crackers and cheese, chocolate cake, a bottle of water and a coffee. Dr M came to visit to tell me all went well and I just hung out till hubby came to collect me. We stopped at the chemist on the way home to collect my cocktail of drugs and then headed home. The pain was fine as I still had the local active so it wasn't until later on that I felt a bit more tender. The pain has def not been as bad as I expected. I feel like I have engorged Milk boobs and like someone has punched me in the ribs and I am surprised that I have pain below my ribs in the spot between ribs and belly button but with the meds its totally manageable. Have heard some bubble noises in my left boob but I know that's just a bit of fluid moving around.  My boobs are high, hard and swollen. They seem huge to me but I know they will become smaller so I am very happy with the size (I chose 295cc dual plane anatomicals). Sleeping is a pain as I'm a tummy sleeper but the endone and vallium knock me out so I can deal with that. Not sure how my back will be after two weeks of sleeping like this but I'll deal with that when I need to. Have been doing my exercises and icing my boobs and am much more mobile than I thought. My biggest concern was dealing with my kids. My 4 year old is great as I can explain that mummy has a sore back and shoulders and he needs to be very gentle with me. (he's been stroking my back before I go to bed which is nice)  My little one doesn't understand why I cant carry him or cuddle him so that's a little hard but he's been getting extra attention from his dad so that makes up for it. Had a bowel movement today Yah! Senokot, Baked Beans and a coffee seemed to do the trick!   Overall I have had an amazing experience and would recommend it to anyone. I am so happy with my choice of Dr Miroshnik and can't wait to see my end results sometime in the next  9-12 months. I have boobs YAAAAHHHHHHH!!! I have some pics of day of surgery in my gallery if anyone would like to have a look. If you made it to the end of this essay thanks for reading my story

    HarpersBizzar got a reaction from kittykat74 in 6 weeks PO- pain, pulling, dropping?   
    I'm just over 6 weeks post op and my left is bigger than my right at the moment and it has dropped a lot quicker too. I've had a lot more stingy sensations this week around the incision site but I put this down to the fact that because I've been feeling better I'm doing more. I did two days of spring cleaning and lifting and moving stuff and found that by boobs were tight and sore by the end of it. I've been wearing my po bra at night again to give them a bit of a rest and thus has helped heaps. I'm sleeping on my side now but have a pillow to prop my boobs if I need it as the past couple of days there has been a bit of a pull on feeling. I think you're prob were you need to be in the healing process as you sound similar to me. It def seems like a roller coaster. Just when you feel like it's going well something changes and then changes again. I guess when they say it's a 12 month healing process they mean it

I think that a hotel with a pool would be good too as even though you won't be able to swim at least you can relax outside on the lounges and not have to stay in your room all the time. Some lower priced hotels don't alway offer these services so make sure you don't just shop by price. Also I'd prebook your transfers. Private car transfers in Phuket from airport to hotel and back are not much more than shared ones and that way you don't need to share with anyone else or stop at multiple hotels on your way to and from. Having a driver to meet you at the airport/hotel and carry your bags is great and that way you don't have to haggle over prices and everything is already taken care of. 
    As jinx369 mentioned the Thai people are lovely and very accommodating.

Everyone I encountered was so friendly, joked with me made sure I was feeling ok every step of the way and I knew that I was going to be in great hands. Dr M came in to measure me up and he caught me eyeing off his coffee and joked that it was a bit mean of him to bring it in so he'd put it on the other side of the room so I wouldn't try and steal it! We just chatted about stuff while he drew some artwork on my chest. They all seemed very good at keeping me distracted from what was actually going on. He gave me a wink as he left the room and said "don't be nervous everything will be fine" The anaesthetist Dr DaSilva came in next to chat  about his side of things and again he was very professional and friendly. I was taken into the theatre which was a bit daunting as I haven't had surgery before. I lay down on the bed and they chatted to me about Christmas while putting the cannula in my arm and the next thing I knew I was waking up to someone calling my name. I was very groggy and just wanted to sleep and could feel a tight sensation on my chest. Once I was a bit more with it the nurses put on my sexy new bra, got me dressed and moved me to the recovery area where I demolished the food they gave me; yoghurt, crackers and cheese, chocolate cake, a bottle of water and a coffee. Dr M came to visit to tell me all went well and I just hung out till hubby came to collect me. We stopped at the chemist on the way home to collect my cocktail of drugs and then headed home. The pain was fine as I still had the local active so it wasn't until later on that I felt a bit more tender. The pain has def not been as bad as I expected. I feel like I have engorged Milk boobs and like someone has punched me in the ribs and I am surprised that I have pain below my ribs in the spot between ribs and belly button but with the meds its totally manageable. Have heard some bubble noises in my left boob but I know that's just a bit of fluid moving around.  My boobs are high, hard and swollen. They seem huge to me but I know they will become smaller so I am very happy with the size (I chose 295cc dual plane anatomicals). Sleeping is a pain as I'm a tummy sleeper but the endone and vallium knock me out so I can deal with that. Not sure how my back will be after two weeks of sleeping like this but I'll deal with that when I need to. Have been doing my exercises and icing my boobs and am much more mobile than I thought. My biggest concern was dealing with my kids. My 4 year old is great as I can explain that mummy has a sore back and shoulders and he needs to be very gentle with me. (he's been stroking my back before I go to bed which is nice)  My little one doesn't understand why I cant carry him or cuddle him so that's a little hard but he's been getting extra attention from his dad so that makes up for it. Had a bowel movement today Yah! Senokot, Baked Beans and a coffee seemed to do the trick!   Overall I have had an amazing experience and would recommend it to anyone. I am so happy with my choice of Dr Miroshnik and can't wait to see my end results sometime in the next  9-12 months. I have boobs YAAAAHHHHHHH!!! I have some pics of day of surgery in my gallery if anyone would like to have a look. If you made it to the end of this essay thanks for reading my story

    HarpersBizzar reacted to Msmelbournian in Went for my first bra fitting! Had to share!   
    Hi everyone simply had to share! 
    I  started out as as 10AA and am very narrow in the torso so was limited by my BWD (about 10.6cm). 
    I had hoped to get to a smallish C and look completely natural. I had 300cc teardrop unders. 
    9 weeks post op now. And decided it was time to get some proper bras so went and got fitted. And omgggg I measured a 10DD!!!!! The bras fit perfectly and look gorgeous - and all in different brands so the size is definitely right and consistent. Got myself a haul of pleasure state, loveable, and heidi klum. 
    So so so happy!! I don't look massive or anything and am proportionate, but OMG to a flat chested person previously I always thought a D would masssssive!!! 
    Lol just goes to show, it just depends on your frame and the ccs don't necessarily dictate cup size   yay!

    HarpersBizzar got a reaction from Kkk in My BA with Dr Miroshnik   
    Hi ladies,
    today is day 3 post op for me so I thought I'd share my journey so far. Just a warning this is an essay
    To be perfectly honest getting a boob job was never something I had ever considered. I have always had small boobs but they were full and perky and I had always told myself I would rather have small real boobs than big fake ones. I also tried to make myself feel better about small boobs by telling myself that when I got hit on by a guy at least I knew it wasn't because of my boobs! 
    I had heard that after you have babies your boobs shrink but I thought I would not fall into that category as I didn't see how they could possible get any smaller......how wrong I was about that one!! After having two bubs and breastfeeding both my boobs not only shrunk but they sagged and became deflated. The only things that got bigger were my nipples. Yuck! 
    A friend of mine who had similar boobs to my pre baby ones got a boob job while she was back in the US visiting family and they were amazing. Not large she got 265cc rounds unders but I thought they looked great and just what I wanted mine to look like. For me knowing someone who had such natural looking implants really changed my views and I started to think that maybe it was an option I would consider. I finished breastfeeding my baby in Feb this year and within a month got to see the true results of what my boobs would be looking like for the rest of my life. I hated them so much; even to the point where I didn't want my husband to look at them or touch them and I started wanting to have the lights off when we had "playtime". I decided that this was no way to live so I started to entertain the idea of getting a BA. I spent the next 6 months doing research. I started with all of the medical side of things first like the different types of implants you can get, how they are put in, side effects, horror stories, long term effects, longevity etc. Then I stated to look at where to get them done. I heard a lot about Thailand as I know they are well known for trans-gender surgery so have surgeons with great skill and reputations. My only reservation with Thailand was that I knew you needed follow up appointments which wouldn't be done face to face and also if there were any complications I would prob need to head back overseas or pay for a surgeon here to fix any issues. Also I have a friend from Thailand who is a nurse and she mentioned that all the Thai's are heading to Korea for their work now so I decided that was too much hassle to save a few thousand dollars. 
    I then started  to research here in Sydney. For me the choice between a Cosmetic surgeon and a Plastic Surgeon was a pretty simple one. If I was going to get this done I was happy to pay for someone I considered to be an expert in the field of Plastic Surgery. Google became my best friend and that is how I stumbled across this forum. The info on here is amazing and I loved reading everyones stories and searching all sorts of info to help me make my choice. Once I found a few surgeons I liked the sound of I started to check out their websites, instagram and facebook accounts. Their credentials and reviews were all great so it really came down to who's work I liked the best. Because I wanted to look as natural as possible and not go too large Dr Miroshniks pics appealed to me the most. I rung and booked a consult for Sept. He was great, had such an easy manner and was very matter of fact. Made jokes and put me at ease. Basically as soon as I took my top off he said "this is what we need to do and don't worry I'll make you look amazing" To me he seemed so experienced and knowledgeable. I went home and chatted to my husband and paid my deposit the next day. I booked for Dec as I knew my hubby would be off for two weeks to help look after the kids.
    Basically between Sept and Dec I became obsessed with this site, looking up as much as I could, reading loads of stories and going through a few emotions of whether I was doing the right thing or not. Everyone I told was really supportive and the only ones who had reservations were those concerned about that fact I was having surgery which always carries risks.  I had a freak out on Thursday when I received the call from the hospital to tell me what time I had to be there the following day as I think that was when reality actually kicked in. I had to be at the hospital at 8 for a 9am surgery which I was happy about as there would be no waiting around all day. I went to the East Sydney Private Hospital and I cannot speak highly enough of the staff there.

    agree with Rosie, it really depends on the look you're after. I only wanted a c cup (I was an A cup prior) and even though I'm still quite small compared to most on here (I got 285cc), I'm loving the fact that I can look decent in clothes without the help of a heavily padded bra. Swimmers are no longer my enemy ?. So just make sure you have a good PS and know in your mind the result you want - you'll be fine!

    I agree with the girls above. There are so many surgeons with great reps. it's hard to choose. A big part of my decision was looking at before/after pics on the website, Facebook and Instagram pages of the surgeons I felt were top in their field from what I'd read. In the end I chose based on who's work looked closest to the boobs what I wanted to have.

    HarpersBizzar reacted to prue in 6 weeks PO- pain, pulling, dropping?   
    i saw the ps today and he said its most likely that i damaged the capsule that the body makes around the implant when healing. The capsule is scar tissue and so he said it is bigger and firmer because it is swollen and now needs more healing time. But he also said that i had the same amount of breast tissue so i should even out but it is still early days and still so much dropping to do.  No the bigger tight one on me was because its swollen. But funningly enough i had the vectra take a picture and the right one which has less profile than the left is bigger in roundness and softer which means it is settling faster. I know it is so hard to be patient and it is a mental thing too but i was healing well until i hurt myself and now its put my healing behind so try to be patient its a big change your chest has to go through and you are still super early days

    I started freaking out the other day t two weeks PO because I had been relatively pain free for  few days, and then suddenly out of nowhere both breasts were really tender and sore. Then it hit me............my period! OOOOh yeah,they used get  bit sore before my period pre-op, but they are way more out there now, more easily bumped/rubbed and have just been stretched and pulled and cut.I'm such  doofus sometimes.

    HarpersBizzar reacted to overthinkingit in 6 weeks PO- pain, pulling, dropping?   
    I found my healing was a real roller coaster. Week 1 was pretty easy, week 2 was not so fun, week 3 was great, week 4 was ok then week 5 and 6 were horrible, 7 was pretty good, 8 I had no pain, 9 I over did it at the gym and was sore for a couple of days. 
    My left one was more sore, bigger, harder and higher then my right until about 5 weeks then they swapped and the right one gave me hell.  
    It was just after my 8 week appointment that they seemed to soften and look like they were a proper matching pair. Before then I was like they are better then having nothing but I didn't love them. Now every time I look down or touch them I am like wow! 
    6 weeks seems like a long time but the healing process is really slow, I think you will notice they are a lot different over the next month.

    I'm 5 weeks post op from a tummy tuck. I'm feeling great overall, I can finally sleep on my sides and lie completely flat which is such a relief after 3 weeks of being unable to. 
     
    My my swelling goes down more each week and my bruises have nearly faded completely. I still swell like crazy at random times of the day, sometimes after my usual morning walk, other times when I've been sitting at a desk for too long. When it swells it's so hard to stand up straight  But it happens less and less as each week progresses. My scar is healing nicely but it's very red/dark at the moment. I've got no soreness or pain, I'm just less flexible ATM. Can't wait to exercise and go back to dance class. 6 weeks til I can go back!

    HarpersBizzar reacted to Joadster in Joadster's BA Journey   
    Hi Ladies... Hope I don't repeat myself too much from all the other posts I've submitted, but just wanted to write about my recent experience of my long awaited BA.
    After 18 months of researching surgeons for my long awaited BA, it was glaringly obvious that Dr M was the man for the job. I read so many great reviews prior to this forum changing, and continued to read both his reviews and looked at every photo I could find hahaha. My surgery wasn't quite as straight forward as a regular BA due to already having a nipple reduction and then a breast lift almost 18 months prior. I'd spoken to a couple of surgeons prior but didn't feel right. Finally I made the call and arranged to send off my photos and await my phone consult with Dr M. After doing so much research, I knew what I wanted, just not the size. I was amazed how at ease I was talking to Dr M. Everything I knew I wanted eg, teardrops, a natural look, dual plane, etc was the recommendations he had for me immediately. This alone gave me great confidence. A few weeks later I was booked for surgery. 
    I had a consult with Dr M in his Bondi office and surgery to be the following day at The East Sydney Hospital. My partner and I flew to Sydney, and turned up at Dr M's clinic. It was so lovely. Staff were polite and happy. I sat there both excited and anxious as to whether I was making the right decision. Finally Dr M called me into his room. They had all just came back from the festive break so Dr M said it was a bit frantic lol. I had in mind the look I wanted but this was not really an option. It really had more to do with my measurements and what would look right. In hindsight I can see now that I may think I want a certain size but when that size has to fit In my personal breast pocket it's not necessarily right for me. I had in mind under 300's but like Dr M said, he could give me smaller implants, but they'd be all at the front with no side boob. To have a full breast I would need between 375- 440cc... This just put me in an absolute spin because I didn't want big boobs, just full ones lol. I wore the sizers and looked in his mirror and thought omg!!! They're huuuuuuuge!!! Hahaha. Dr M told me to wear them for a while as he wrote all his numbers and diagrams down and I must admit I was a little more comfortable with the size after checking myself out for ten minutes lol... I asked my partner if he thought they looked too big and both he and Dr M laughed. Apparently this is impossible in a mans eye lol. I agreed to the lower 375cc, got dressed and was then introduced to Tara who finalised all the paperwork for surgery and told me that the hospital would call to give me the time if arrival and time to fast. My head was doing head miles in and off all night. Finally I got to sleep but then woke at 4:00am stark raving mad!! Am I making the right decision? Are they too big? Am I doing this for me? If I'm going to pull out, it better be now!! Hahahaha omg!!! Thank God for ladies on this site that got me through!!
    Spent all morning sight seeing to keep my mind occupied. Went back to our Hotel which was literally across the road from the hospital. Had a rest for an hour and then walked across for my new boobies! Was only waiting in the waiting room a short time when the nurse came to get me. Gave me my sexy tie up nighty with a waffle dressing gown, theatre slip ones and my red hair hat lol. Gave me a bed and took all my obs. Soon after Nurse Emily came to take me to a private room. She was wonderful and made me feel so confident that I was in the hands of an amazing team! She put a heater hose under my blanket as I rested on a big leather recliner... Wasn't long and the anethatist came in and told me all that he'd be doing. He was lovely too! The heater hose made me so warm and relaxed that I fell asleep! I couldn't believe it lol... Then gorgeous Dr M arrived. A quick recap of what was happening and he then made is artwork all over me lol... Felt like a pattern lol. Then in I went where they made me super comfy and within moments I was out to it. 
    Woke up in recovery with a bit of pain and the nurse came over immediately with pain relief. I had my first quick glance at my new girls and it was soooooo emotional!! I had tears in my eyes of happiness!! It was love at first sight!!! Hahahaha I was soooooo happy! I was given a little bit more pain relief and had a rest until I woke again. Dr M came in and told me that all went well and he was happy. I couldn't help but giggle and said I had a quick look and I'm VERY happy with them! Hahaha... I had a male nurse who was absolutely lovely!! He made me a cup of coffee exactly how I liked it, got me some wonderful gluten free food and put on my first big bra hahaha. I couldn't stop looking down at my new boobies. I was so excited for my man to come in lol. Next minute in walked Vic with a smile from ear to ear!! He could not believe that I was sitting up all alert and smiling and eating lol. He had gotten himself prepared for me to be crying and hardly unable to move lol. He was so happy that I was so happy. Then I showed him my new girls and I think he fell in love with me all over again hahaha!!, Next minute my daughter calls me on FaceTime lol... The male nurse saw me holding up my phone and said "Are you taking selfies already!!!" Hahahahaha... Everyone in the room heard my daughter and was laughing at how amazed she was that I just woke from getting boobies, was sitting up and laughing getting ready to leave in the next ten minutes lol. A few ppl in the room were all joining in on the conversation and laughing hahahaha it was so cool! Finally we just walked across the road to our hotel. I was so comfy with lots of pillows. Had a rest and actually went downstairs for dinner. Had a good night sleep and then went down for a huge buffet brekky the next morning. My mother and sister in law visited me at the Hotel the day after surgery and we all went out for lunch. I was very tired after that and just rested.  Major swelling on my sides under my armpits right down to the bottom of my ribs but that only lasted a couple of days. Of course my boobs are very swollen, odd shaped and high but I couldn't care less!! Just looking forward to the recovery process now. I'm so happy, we had a huge sight seeing day and night yesterday over Sydney. What a wonderful experience it all was. The only negative I can think of was not getting a very very strong laxatives as the anaesthetic and pain meds made me extremely constipated. Apart from that, from day 1 I could shower myself, brush my hair, dress myself and see all the sights of Sydney as long as I took it easy and walked slowly, no power walking hahahaha I might add Before surgery I ate gluten, sugar and dairy free! Whilst in Sydney I ate Buffet Breakfasts, Indian, Italian, Brazilian you name it, cakes, biscuits etc lol... Hence with new boobs, swelling, and my naughty diet I have gained 4kg!! Lol 
    if you have read all of my story I am totally amazed, but this has been one of the best experiences of my life with absolutely no regret <3
    Thank you to all of the ladies who supported me through it all <3
