  1. Large Pores

    So I've just signed up to have some skin treatments with Laser Clinics. My skin isn't too bad. I'm pretty lucky in that I don't have a lot of lines yet, just a bit of a frown line between my brows which I've started getting botox for. My skin is a bit more on the oily side so that's good for wrinkles but i have pretty large pores on my forehead and cheeks, which I HATE. I went and had a consult with laser clinics and they've recommended starting with something called 'Skin Fit', which is a treatment package that includes 2 microdermabrasion sessions, 2 mild-moderate face peels and 2 sessions of yellow LED. It also included a cleanser, a hyaluronic acid cream and a sunscreen/primer. So, I'm gonna see how that goes and see what parts of that I like. I went in with the intention of getting the derma pen treatment but the woman said I don't need that and it would be overkill. What treatments have you guys tried for large pores?
  2. Wide gap

    You are right in that subfascial placement can help narrow the gap. Having them placed under the muscle or dual plane can accentuate the gap but it depends on how developed your muscles are and how much muscle release your surgeon performs. Also, having a wider implant will help close the space between. I'm so sorry that you have CC. That must be awful!
  3. Wide gap

    Have you always had a large gap or is it much more pronounced now due to the capsular contracture?
  4. OMG I am getting veneers

    Looking great already! You are absolutely beautiful anyway, might I add!
  5. saline or silicone

    Silicone is quite safe these days. Of course there are always risks. In terms of appearance and feel though, silicone wins hands down, especially if you don't have much of your own tissue to start with.
  6. BA in Adelaide under $10,000

    7 pets?!!! I'm so jealous! I have 2 dogs and want another but my fiancé' said no. There are 2 surgeons in Adelaide who are spoken very highly of, Dr Cooter and Dr Kollias. I had my surgery done 18 months ago by Dr Cooter. I've had no complications and he did a fantastic job. From memory, Dr Cooter was about $1k dearer than Dr Kollias but both were very reasonably priced, especially compared to APSA.
  7. Hi there - firstly thanks for sharing so much and for helping so many people on this site as a result. I am new on here and I am considering Glamsmile. I actually have an appointment with Yvonne King in 2 weeks time. You mentioned in one of your responses to a thread about Glamsmile, that you had a gallery of photos of your Glamsmile results. I can't find this particular gallery anywhere on here. Is it still available? How do I access it? I am really interested to see your photos as you seem so happy and positive about your results. Let me know! Belinda 

  8. OMG I am getting veneers

    Mine were quite bulky and long! But that's because my jaw is out of whack and they tried to compensate for that with my first wax-up! But other than that, they looked pretty good! They were literally a mould of my wax-up and just made of a plastic type stuff (similar to what's in fillings). I recommend seeing your doctor and getting some good pain relief beforehand. Something codeine-based like panadeine forte or panadeine extra will do wonders for pain control. They can be quite sensitive afterwards when the anaesthetic wears off. You can't buy any codeine-based products over the counter anymore (as of start of Feb) so it's good if you're prepared!
  9. OMG I am getting veneers

    How exciting! I'd never heard of this guy until now. I did my 20 at once and it was definitely an ordeal Mind you, I had to travel to QLD to have it done (took 2 weeks) and the lab that designs the veneers is literally 15 minutes from the dental clinic so it was easy to send them back and make adjustments. The grinding can get uncomfortable, I won't lie. Mind you, I had 6 crowns (on top) and 14 veneers so a bit more grinding on top for me. My advice is to just put your hand up once the anaesthetic starts to wear off (mine did ). I tried to be brave the first session and just deal with it but if you just speak up, the dentist will numb you again and you'll be comfortable. It's a long time in the chair. And I will warn you, if you see your face with ground down teeth, you will feel like the ugliest person ever. I wasn't going to look but I caved and did. Ugh!! Not pretty. But so worth it in the end. I went the second whitest shade and the dentist also used a white cement to block out some of the darkness underneath (apparently my dentin was quite dark). They are definitely white enough for me!! I was almost going to go with BL3 but my dentist recommended BL2 with white cement and then added some minor gingival staining to give them a bit more of a natural look. That's another thing to understand, you can use a clear cement, which lets more of your natural colour show through so when you look at 2 photos of BL2 shade, they can be different colours. If I didn't have to travel for mine, I would've broken up the experience also. My top teeth were very sensitive to cold foods for about 4 months (but I had crowns on these) but are fine now. I slept a lot after being in the chair. The anaesthetic, although local, seemed to knock me about. Even the fitting of the permanents can be quite painful afterwards. Good luck! I look forward to seeing your new smile.
  10. Adjusting to new boobs!!!

    It's definitely an adjustment!! Also, you've just had surgery so you don't even know what the 'new you' looks like yet! That'll take months so your bf needs to shut-up . You're probably stressed and emotional enough and dealing with the pain on top of that, so expect to feel a little uncertain at first. I remember living in my pj's for the first week coz I just thought I looked FAT in everything. It didn't help that they were taped straight ahead like torpedoes and overs look a lot more swollen initially coz the muscle isn't compressing them down . If you have unders, that's probably why you're finding it hard to stand properly right now. Your muscles have been stretched! By hunching you give your pecs a bit of relief. In time, once everything heals, you'll be back to your old self, only better.
  11. Rippling of silicone Implants

    I can feel rippling in my cleavage and ever so slightly I can see it at some angles. But in clothing and bras, even where there is the tiniest bit of pressure against them, it disappears completely. I can feel the edge of my implants in my cleavage area if i try but can't get my fingers under them. It doesn't bother me because you would have to be looking for it to notice and it's only when naked anyway. I wouldn't worry about it unless it becomes very visible.
  12. Options after Braces

    Hmm.. I don't know that jaw surgery would work in this case. Your bite is now perfect according to your dentist. I think you should consider what your dentist said about the muscles you're using to smile. I can show all of my teeth if I wish but when I 'smile' properly, my bottom teeth don't show. However, everybody's smile is different. I show ALL of my top teeth when I smile, right up to the gum line. Some people only show part of their top teeth and also part of their bottom teeth. If people are commenting that you 'don't smile properly', you might actually be doing something weird with your muscles, similar to when people say 'show me your teeth'. You can pull your bottom lip down when you smile or you can leave it completely lifted over your bottom teeth. Maybe that's what you're doing? I'd try practicing smiling in front of a mirror and see if there is anything you can change with the muscles you're using first.
  13. Worried about size choice!! 6 weeks P/op

    My sister had 450cc implants put in a few years ago. Initially, she hated them. But after they settled and her muscles relaxed and let the implants fluff out and take on a better shape, she loves them! Are your implants under the muscle? Because if they are, they will take a lot longer to settle because the muscles are compressing them and everything is super tight. I think you just need to give it time. <3
  14. Breast implant revision - smaller implants

    Hi Honeylove. I'm sorry you're feeling this way I went through a period where I felt mine were too large also. Did you have round or teardrop implants? I discussed the possibility of revision with my surgeon and he was fantastic. Had I decided to go ahead with it, it would've been about 1/3 of the price of the initial augmentation. But this was because of several factors, one being that he'd been offered a free set of implants from Allergan (a new textured implant) so he was able to waive the costs of replacement implants for me. However, you still need to pay a theatre fee, anaesthetist's fee and the surgeon's fee (at his/her discretion) so this all comes into play. If you have private health, you may be in a better position to have those fees reduced. Generally, if you return to the same surgeon and express your discomfort, he should try to help you achieve your desired result and the cost shouldn't be as much as the first time, but this depends on the surgeon and reasons for wanting a revision.
  15. Braces removal - why did no one tell me

    Seriously?? I don't remember mine being painful at all! They were painful after they were first put on and when they were tightened each month but removing them was a real non-event for me.
