    JustRight4Me got a reaction from ayesha79 in Push up bra for larger cup size   
    I'm not sure how many months PO you are but I think some surgeons recommend not wearing push-up bras for at least 6 months. If you're over 6 months PO then no worries, though I think you'll have trouble finding them for larger boobs.
    I'd go to decent bra shop and ask what options there are for larger breasts. It may be that you don't need a push up bra but one that has the right structure to form cleavage. Good luck!

    Get the best sports bra possible if you choose to run. It's hard to avoid bounce and sadly bounce will cause boobs to go south, real or not
    I chose to go no bigger than 400cc as I am fairly active in marital arts and anything bigger would get in the way.

    You need to ask your surgeon first just in case.
    Is it a beginners class or more advanced class that involves contact?
    If beginners, you may just be learning the basics so as long as you have a good supportive sports bra, I don't see why not. It would be more the bouncing around that would be the issue. If the classes involve striking/kicking, I'd ask the people running the classes if they prefer that women wear protection anyway.
    I do a semi-contact martial arts and I think I went back to it fully after 4/5 months. I wear chest armour however if sparring.

    JustRight4Me got a reaction from leany in Bottoming out or dropping?   
    I think bottoming out happens much later (months/years) on when the implant is clearly falling under the natural breast's crease. Your breasts are just dropping at a different rate. It's hard not to worry but assess how things go towards the 6 months mark when things settle more

    JustRight4Me got a reaction from mycosmeticjourney in 1 year post op and saggy :(   
    It's hard to know without pre-op photos but if your breasts sat low in the beginning then the implants may have just followed the natural progression of going south. Having said that, I don't think they look saggy.
    They look lovely! They look remarkably natural although I appreciate that's not the look you were after.
    If your nipples started pointing downwards then I think it's worth addressing surgically again.
    However, if you can avoid a lift (especially before starting a family), I think that would be good. I suppose a larger high profile implant may hike the girls up again but if you're perhaps genetically predisposed to lower lying boobs, I'm not sure how long they'd hold for?
    I'd have a chat with a surgeon to see what your options are.

    Same - I thought I would need Mods with a BWD of 15cm but I got given HPs with about 13cm width and they are perfect. Every woman is different so I wouldn't focus on those numbers too much. HPs on me now make sense as I had some breast tissue to work with and I wanted cleavage over side-boob.
    It may be a good idea to see one more surgeon anyway.

    JustRight4Me got a reaction from Ange40 in Mark lee girls- recovery time   
    I can only go by my personal experience with Mark Lee, but I found the pain manageable and yes, I think he is known to be a skilled surgeon who can therefore minimise pain. 
    Having said that, everyone is different. I do have a high threshold for pain and I tend to get on with things. I had to do the school drop off/pick up and then some, pretty much within 24 hours of surgery which I could quite comfortably. I made sure I rested well however whenever I could.
    You are best to have a contingency plan just in case. My kids are older so they could help themselves mostly but I probably would have enjoyed having help if they were all younger than 7.
    Just do as much as you can to ensure your recovery is smooth. Sleep when you can. Drink lots of water and eat well. I think you'll be fine tho!

    JustRight4Me got a reaction from Pennylane6 in Perth breast augmentation   
    There are many posts on Perth plastic surgeons so I'd do a search for each. I'd also research what look you want to achieve and the types of implants. Tony Connell is well regarded but will only use teardrop/anatomical implants whereas my surgeon Mark Lee (highly recommended) will only use rounds as he's mindful of rotation, particularly in active women (me). I think Dr Kailis is actually a plastic surgeon but only operates on Saturdays at his reduced rate. His price is only for straightforward cases under a certain size I believe? All other plastic surgeons in Perth also seem to have good feedback. In fact, we pay more in average in Perth but we don't seem to have cowboys

    JustRight4Me got a reaction from RH4K in Anyone else with a similar bwd 14cm   
    I have similar stats and 400cc took me from 12B to 12DD. If you have natural breast tissue that puts you in a D cup, then I would think that you'll end up bigger than DD. If you don't have much breast tissue and it's mostly skin then the 390 should hopefully fill you out without going too big in cup size. I think the size sounds pretty good for your BWD though otherwise.

    I think the implants you got look great on you! Given your height you wouldn't have wanted less than 400. You probably could have gone to 500 without it seeming too big too. However, as you're slim, I think it's good to be cautious and go with 400.

    I usually buy off the rack and move on with any sort of clothes but I chose to have a fitting at Myer 8 weeks PO.
    The lady was pretty used to seeing augmented boobs so she was really helpful. She explained why some bras won't sit well for the first six months (boobs too high etc.), and that some will never ever fit well. It has saved me buying bras that aren't going to work for me.

    Ignore your mother. Some women of a particular generation don't feel it's right to change your body and a whole host of other old-fashioned ideas. You're a modern woman living in modern times. It doesn't matter who does or doesn't see your new boobs. You'll enjoy the confidence you get from them and feel far from fake. I'm not sure what size you're going to but for most part, people won't really notice. I went to 400HP and with clothes on, no one has picked that I had a BA.
    You're entitled to do things that make you feel good. I don't believe in being like the previous generation of women and putting themselves last.

    JustRight4Me got a reaction from anna6 in Round vs teardrop debate   
    I think if you're a fairly standard case then rounds are a good option. Teardrops work best for specific breast types from what I understand.
    Either way, my PS (Mark Lee as well) suggested rounds purely because I am an active person (martial arts) and he didn't want to take the risk of rotation occurring. I think the risk is minimal for regular women (though someone recently on here has to have her teardrops corrected/removed due to rotation?) but I didn't want any remote possibility of rotation happening to me.
    Please also keep in mind that although round implants are of course round, whey they are placed on the chest wall and under the muscle, they don't end up perfectly round inside.

    JustRight4Me reacted to Madsamuffin in 560cc or 615cc HELP!!!   
    It sounds like your bwd is quite large so it's probably spot on - just trust your surgeon! Honestly, they do this stuff every day. 
    That being said, I personally don't buy into this 'Go the biggest you possibly can' thing. That all depends on your personality and the look you're after. I wanted natural and I also wanted to be able to hide them when I wanted to. The biggest I could go was 450 despite being tall and a size 14, but they look proportionate on me (weird, cos I'm quite big, but smaller girls can handle more CCs!). On me, 615 would have been not at all what I was after. 
    But your surgeon has suggested those CCs for you so trust him - they know what they're on about :-P
    Good luck, girl.

    JustRight4Me got a reaction from JStar in My BA with Dr Mark Lee   
    I thought I'd post this as a separate topic in case Perth ladies are searching for post-op feedback etc. 
    Anyway, I had my BA yesterday with Mark Lee (at SJOG Subi) and so far I am super happy. Thanks to this Forum, I know not to be worried about how my boobs look right now but I'm rather happy with the results so far too. I went from a small 12B to what I think is going to be a D. Just happy to have volume up top again!
    I had been considering a BA for at least the last two years but it was never the right time. I worried about the downtime as well even having a GA for a non-essential procedure. Finally after Christmas last year, I decided to do it but had to wait until all the PS offices came back from holidays. I have quite a few friends with implants so went with some recommendations. One surgeon was retiring this year so that ruled him out. I made an appointment with Dr Tony Connell and Dr Mark Lee for January. I had to cancel Tony Connell's consult (clashed with staycation with my kids) and was told by his office that the next appointment was early March!! I wanted to get my BA sooner than that! I think I secretly didn't mind as I was happy with Mark Lee's reviews anyway.
    My consult with Mark Lee went well. He's a lovely person and you feel confident in his abilities as a surgeon. The consult isn't long but he'll move you through the process efficiently and fully. He took into account my lifestyle (I'm into fitness and train in martial arts) as well as as my physique (169cm, 65kg, broad shoulders) to arrive at the right implant size. He suggested 375cc initially but I asked to bump it up to 400cc. I later went into the office again to play around with sizers and while 450cc was tempting, I stuck to 400cc. 500cc would have given me a more dramatic change but a significant lifestyle change too, which I didn't want.
    I was able to book my BA in fairly fast. I had some funds set aside and needless to say, hubby was excited so he happily parted with some coins too. Before I knew it, it was the day of the surgey
    I deliberately chose Wednesday as I had read that the anaesthetist who works on that day is amazing, and she was! Jenny Morgan is so down-to-earth and put me at ease even over the pre-op phone call. I'm sure the other anaesthetists are more than competent too but I'm glad I went for Wednesday
    The hospital staff was lovely and I never felt like I was out of the loop. I didn't have a huge wait (admitted at 11am, then taken away to pre-op area by 1:30pm). Mark saw me to say hello and make markings, then by 2pm, I was prepped by Jenny. All I remember is having small talk with her while monitors were stuck on me, then that was that. I woke up in recovery feeling drowsy, a little tight in the chest but pretty much no pain! I felt my chest and to be honest, I didn't think they seemed bigger LOL I now know it's because everything is so high and flat against my chest.
    I was then returned to my room where I had some food finally and rested. I was explained to by the nurse earlier in the morning that I may feel like I've done 1000 press ups in terms of pain but for most of the time, I was pretty comfortable other than the tightness. Once the local anaesthetic wore off later in the evening, I started to feel that muscle soreness but it was manageable. In fact, I ended up making hubby a coffee (the poor love was exhausted from being Mr Mom...) and did some minor tidying. I didn't feel that I couldn't move around or be 'normal'.
    I slept OK, propped up on pillows. I toss and turn a lot and prefer side sleeping so it was a challenge. When I woke up, I felt like I did those 1000 press ups but it wasn't like I couldn't get out of bed and do things. I have a lot of bruising as I had some armpit breast tissues snipped but otherwise it's looking good! I helped get the kids ready and made myself some green juice.
    In terms of meds, I took a Panadol Osteo and another pain killer before bed and did the same this morning. Depending on how I go after tomorrow, I will ease off on the stronger stuff and stick to Panadol Osteo. I have some anti-inflammatories and antibiotics to take as well.
    I'm on an anti-inflammatory diet for the next couple of weeks to try and get the swelling down. Lots of pineapple, black tea and Omega 3  I'll report back about whether that helps or not and I'll load some photos to my profile. So far so good anyway. I'm sure I'll have some challenging moments ahead but to be honest, I like keeping busy so hoping to take focus away from any pain or discomfort.
    Good luck to everyone else booked in for surgery  Feel free to ask me any questions.

    I hope you get well soon I'm not sure how old your kids are but I think you should be OK going on your own if you feel confident to do so. It would be cheaper to stay in Sydney on your own and hire a nurse or carer than to get the whole family down from the sounds of it! Just depends if you felt you wanted someone close to you around rather than a stranger I guess? 
    I think you shouldn't rule out surgery in November if you're fit for it. Recovery from BA isn't so bad and heck, a week in Sydney without the family?
    I read about so many great surgeons in Brisbane too so that's another option. 
    Either way, I'm sure it'll work out
