    Hi @MellieMoo im only just approaching 3 months post op so still wearing a compression bra. I may not have a fitting until I see Kollias for my 3 mth check up in a couple of weeks - so am unsure of my cup size. Think I would say they were a D, they don't look much bigger than that to me. I was a deflated C beforehand due to breastfeeding two children. I was recommended both 365cc by Kollias and Moore (APSA) but pushed Kollias for more although only went to 385cc and I wish I went to at least 400cc as I tried on sizers at APSA which was really good to give me an accurate opinion on size. Def get two consultations regardless and get one from someone like Cooter or Moore (or someone at APSA) so you can try decent sizers on. I'm 41 so Kollias would prob be even more conservative with me going to large even though I'm tall with broad shoulders and could pull it off however I think if you're younger say I'm your 20's and pushed for bigger he'd go with it. At the end of the day he will guide you to what he feels will be best for your body but it's your money so you need to get what you want. I'm not unhappy with mine and it is very early days however I def think I should've had 400cc min. And I'm not saying that to be greedy, I just feel like my boobs were fuller when I breastfed my firstborn than what they are now!!! So they don't feel like a huge size difference however they look 100% better!!

    Hi @melliemoo, I had my BA with Kollias in January and I'm very happy. I also had a consult with APSA but chose Kollias based on price and I felt much more comfortable with him. Dr Cooter also has a good reputation. Kollias charged just over $9k for my surgery which included an overnight stay in St Andrews. You won't find any web info on Kollias BA surgeries as he doesn't promote it. He's an endocrinologist and his main work is related to cancer, breast lumps, breast reconstruction and mastectomies etc. Hes a really lovely guy. He does more of a natural look tho so if you're looking for really large implants you'll possibly have to beg!!! 😂 His initial consult is approx $230 from memory then you don't pay for further consults.

    Thanks @BoobsCD maybe I've been looking at them too much and have become too used to the size already!!! I'm 174cm and has 385cc HP rounds and have felt all along that I could've had at least 400 min but surgeon wasn't keen. Anyway just need to be patient...they are 100% better than what was!!! Mine are raised too at 3 weeks and I would say this is completely normal. The skin has been cut so it'll take time for the swelling to go down and heal. Not sure how long the incision would need to be, I'm guessing just big enough to put implant inside....are you worried about yours??

    Does anyone in the Jan group have slightly different sized breasts but not enough to warrant different sized implants?? My left is naturally bigger than my right which I mentioned to my surgeon in my first & second consult however he said it's not enough to warrant a larger implant in the right however it's all I can notice when I look at my boobs!!! I'm only 3 weeks post-op and they're settling at different rates, as they do, so I'm hoping it will even out more....

    Yes @Belindajp I'm three weeks post-op tomorrow and have been experiencing a shooting pain in my left breast. Not super painful but def makes me press the spot where it's happening.... weird. I was calm throughout the lead-up and right up until I was given my anaesthesia @Maria I think because it's something i've been thinking about for a long time. However I woke up teary from my anaesthetic so I think deep down there was a small fear of not waking up and leaving my two young children without a mum! Good luck tomorrow, you'll be so happy with it's over & you have new boobs!

    Don't worry - the boob lady came over today and I've got an $85 compression bra now too! So I've spend $60 on the other two plus this one!!! I wear the stretchier one at night. As much as the compression bra is tight and restrictive my boobs don't ache wearing it but they did with the other so you're prob better off. I give myself a 1/2-1 hour without the bra each day anyway....they need a break sometimes! I'm going to ring Kollias office tomorrow because I swear he said 3 months for this bra 😱😱😱

    I struggled with this too @Theloveofa drink heaps of water, pear juice is really good and easier to drink than prune juice 😝 also I don't take this but others have had luck with Coloxyl & Senna tablets, Fybogel sachets are good but need to drink plenty of water too. Tinned peaches are also good to help get things moving! Good luck!

    The ones that the 'boob lady' sells whilst in hospital is fine @coconut87 both @NMAdel and I bought two - a black and nude/skin colour. They're not a compression bra as such, more of a auppprt bra. They were $30 each so super cheap. Not sure what the racer baxk may do to your boobs, might be a little too supportive perhaps? These bras have hook & eye to so they up at the front so if you're wearing say a low singlet your can unclip a couple for a while if you really want. I'm wondering if the racer back may be hard to put on as well as I needed help for the first couple of days.....anyway worth asking if you really want to wear the pink one - which you prob do after paying for it!!! Only two more sleeps for you 💃💃💃
