    Furry Brazilians melbourne

    Well, I am a positive advocate for these implants. I had mine done by Dr Tansley (but in Brisbane) & he was the most amazing surgeon I've ever experienced. He was doing revision surgery for me due to my Mentors rupturing. I have had furries for almost 4 years now & have not had a single issue. Mine are soft & supple & feel just as natural as my mentors did. They sit the same & look virtually identical to what they did with my mentor textured implants. I am a big weights person at the gym & have also had no problems in that regard. The above statement that only cosmetic surgeons use them is incorrect. Dr Tansley is a Cambrige trained Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon who is highly experienced not just in using PU implants but in general & reconstructive surgery as well. It is true that they are not commonly used but that is due to the steep learning curve & additional training required to use them. Most surgeons get enough business with what they already offer, they dont feel the need to get the extra training. And that is fine. Dr Tansley is also on the Board that is researching ALCL & its links to textured implants, so he is a good one to chat to if you have concerns around that issue, even if you dont use him as your surgeon. And yes, these implants are not for everyone. But no implants is. Every single implant type out there has had people who have experienced negative outcomes with them, whether it be CC or anything else. Every implant type has the risk of complications. Not a single one is 100% risk free. There is also no evidence at all to say that PU are worse.
  2. I have Polytech German implants & absolutely adore them. Dr Patrick Tansley in Brisbane (he also has a practice in Melb - both called North East Plastic Surgery) did my surgery & I am almost 4 yrs down the track & have not had a single issue with them. I have & always will be a big supporter of these implants. They aren't for everyone but serve their purpose for those that do get them. I will get them again if I ever have to go down that track again in the future. I think you dont hear much about them anymore because they are no longer "new" & the controversy around the silimed brand has gone away. You can definitely still get PU implants but only the Polytech brand. You'd just need to ask around to see who does them. I know there are a few Surgeons that use them.
  3. Dr Patrick Tansley is an exceptional Brisbane based surgeon. He did my replacement 3 yrs ago & I cant recommend him highly enough. 😊

    Boob greed

    Absolutely!! My first time round I got 375cc HP. While they were still all swollen, I was ecstatic with their size. Once they settled, I would always look at them & think they look great but just that little bit bigger would be even better! 😊
  5. I second Dr Patrick Tansley. I had a implant replacement with him almost 3 yrs ago now due to a rupture & he was absolutely bloody brilliant. He is cambridge trained Plastic & Reconstructive surgeon so will definitely have the knowledge you need to fix any issues you may have. I can not recommend him highly enough. Feel free to PM me if you would like to discuss him more. 😊

    Brisbane PLASTIC surgeons

    He is Plastic, he is a British trained plastic & reconstructive surgeon. I haven't spoken to him for a few months, so I'm not 100% sure if he has sorted his equivalent registration in Aus.

    The use of drainage tubes post op...

    First surgery I didn't have them. Revision surgery I did. I was fine both times. The surgeon said he doesn't normally use them for first up surgeries but because my revision was for a rupture & he had to take the pocket out, it was a bit more traumatic on the body so he liked to use drains to make sure no fluid builds up. I actually found them a little entertaining. I hooked them up to a coat hanger & was carrying that around with me everywhere. Gave the post op nurses a good chuckle. Apparently they had never seen anyone do that before. I thought it was just logical. 😊

    Hair Straightening Products

    Yes!!! That's the Aldi stuff I use! It is amazing! I use the mask as well & stock up when it is in the store because it isn't a permanent line. I honestly think the Aldi version is better than the Organix version. I've used that too & it is nowhere near as nourishing as the Aldi one. I seriously swear by the Aldi one now & recommend it to everyone! Lol, even strangers in the store!! 😝

    Hair Straightening Products

    Believe it or not, I have been using the Aldi Argan Oil shampoo & conditioner for months now & my hair has never been softer! And I have used many salon only products including L'Oréal Professional, Kerastase, Joico etc & seriously the Aldi products are even better & WAY cheaper! I also use argan oil on my hair after I wash it. When I straighten it, I use a kerastase heat protector & then a little argan oil after to take any frizz. I have very thick & curly hair, so I use the GHD Eclipse straightener which is designed for Afro/extremely coarse hair & it works a treat. I also use an argan oil treatment mask twice a week. My hair has never been in better condition & Im saving heaps! 😊
