  1. Thanks. I haven't needed to take it again but I will check with them in case I do. How are you going now after your breast implant illness post explant?
  2. I think you need to remind yourself that 415cc is not a massive implant. It's not 'small' but it's by no means a ridiculous size! It's only 40cc more than what I have. I'm not sure of the dimensions of your particular implant but even with the XHP, the projection is probably only a cm more than mine at MOST. I know it's always easy for someone else to say ( I've been there and ignored the words of others trying to make me see sense 😛 ) but you do look great. They look nice and full but definitely not crazy. And since the bottoming out has been corrected, you are looking fabulous. I think your surgeon was right to warn you about possible excess skin and a less than ideal shape if you went smaller. This is what happened to me. Although they looked 'ok', the were definitely less perky and youthful looking simply because they'd been stretched to a larger size previously. So there's a very real chance that if you went smaller again, you'd be unhappy with the shape and appearance and be wanting another revision. 😕 Something I find helpful is to find women whose bodies you admire who have full boobies (created by implants) and are also very fit with an amazing figure. I find it helps me embrace a more voluptuous frame and aspire to make my booty and thighs match my new bust. I'm obsessed with Drea Thomas at the moment. She's a model for Bombshell Sportswear. I follow her on insta and she is a total babe! Definite body goals for when I'm able to start working out again! She's super lean with a snatched waist but curves in all the right places. Boobie and booty G O A L S. 😂
  3. So I had my BA revision on Thursday. Went larger and switched from above muscle to under the muscle due to visible rippling in the cleavage. I had HORRIBLE muscle spasms in my right pec Thursday night that kept waking me from sleep and were particularly worse after I'd tried to move or reposition myself. I mean, this isn't unexpected given I'd just had a huge foreign body shoved under there. I called out a home GP Friday night who prescribed some diazepam (valium) for the spasms. I'm just wondering if many Australian surgeons commonly prescribe this in the post-operative period to assist with muscle relaxation. I know some US surgeons do but I haven't heard of many here in Australia prescribing it. Just curious.
  4. It definitely is crazy how our mind can play tricks on us! I think you look fantastic, by the way! I'm sorry you had to go through such an ordeal with your surgeries to get to where you are now. I can relate to the unsupportive partner thing! (I read some of your old posts). My partner didn't want me to get a BA in the first place but accepted it. But now that I've gone under the knife for a 3rd time (purely for size/aesthetics), he's not impressed at all. He's been doing a great job looking after me but he's still not happy with the whole situation. I was tempted to try and go larger this time, maybe switch to an extra high profile and aim for 400-450cc. But given that I downsized in the first place because I felt too large, I knew in the pit of my stomach this was not a wise idea and my surgeon did too. He ordered the 375 and 400s and on the day, said the 400s didn't fit anyway. My BWD is very narrow so I wasn't surprised by this and he doesn't commonly use XHP implants so he didn't even recommend this as an option. I think I'm most surprised at how much of a difference 75cc and a profile change made in me. My mum and sister both said my second implants were MUCH smaller and my mum thought I'd removed them completely!! 😱 I just really hope things go smoothly and there are no complications this time around. If they look very similar to the first set, I'll be thrilled and able to get on with my life. I'm annoyed that I have to take so long off the gym. I never used to go to the gym at all but got myself a personal trainer 4 months ago and started strength training (I wanted a butt after being a prototypical skinny white chic my whole life 😛 ). I came such a long way in terms of strength and I'm so sad that I'm gonna be starting from scratch again!! My body size didn't change a whole lot but my composition did and my legs and butt were looking good . I built quite a bit of muscle in my legs and and really leaned down in my waist and hips. Super keen to get back into it again but know I need to be careful and not push it. Anyone have any tips/suggestions for easing back into the gym. I've put my membership on hold for a month and was going to start back with some light cardio and maybe lower body leg press/hip abductor stuff. Any advice? Suggestions?
  5. Thanks guys. I'm surprisingly not in as much pain as I thought I would be going under the muscle. The first night wasn't fun and I was having horrible muscle spasms! I got the GP to prescribe some diazepam to help with that and it's made a difference. Also, I've been sleeping so much because of the endone, which is a good thing. I figure the more I sleep, the better and quicker I heal so no complaints there! I'll keep you updated. I can't wait to go bra shopping and dress shopping again. I really miss how they looked in dresses the first time around. @I HaveBoobs Sorry to hear you're wanting a revision! But congrats on the weight loss. That's awesome
  6. It's a shame it's such a process, isn't it?! If only we could try the implants out in our body like we try on a dress, it would make things much easier. I'm so sorry to hear about the CC. That's one of my worst fears! Of course he woke up when you tried to take his toy 😂 hahaha. Always the way. Thank you. Definitely plan on resting. I started getting horrible spasms in my right breast this morning. My pecs are freaking out.
  7. So I had my initial BA in 2016 and had 350cc subfascial. I was initially really happy and thought they looked great. Over time I began to feel they were too big for my frame and in particular, had too much upper pole fullness. In hindsight, I just hadn't mentally adjusted to having boobs. I'd always been very tall and skinny with A-cups and now I was noticing other women checking my boobs out! So... in 2018, I downsized to 275cc mod+. This doesn't sound like a big drop but it was pretty significant on my build. I'd dropped 1.2cm in projection, which meant they disappeared in clothes. I really looked like I hadn't had anything done! For the first month or 2, I thought this was great. However, the shape was affected a bit as I'd been larger and my nipples sat a little lower on my chest. They just looked flatter and even slightly droopy. I by no means needed a lift but they didn't look as perky as before. I thought that by downsizing I'd be able to push them up and play them up with padded bras, which I could. But they didn't look as good as I'd pictured. The shape just wasn't as good and I didn't really like how they looked in push-ups at all. 😕 Looking back at photos of my 350s, I realised what everybody else had tried to tell me the whole time. They were not too big at all and they looked much better in clothes and dresses than my current 275s. Ughhhh. It's amazing how much your own mind can mess with you because I honestly believed I looked huge with the 350s and that wasn't the case at all. 😳 So I decided to go for another consult at the end of last year and see if I could return to my previous size. The surgeon noticed I had some pretty significant rippling in my cleavage and we decided to go below the muscle (dual plane) this time around. He's since changed to motiva implants due to the concerns surrounding certain implants and ALCL. So we decided on 375cc full profile, which is basically the same dimensions as my previous implants just slightly more volume. I had my surgery today and everything went well. I'm now typing this because it's 3am and I can't sleep. 🙄 I feel very tight in the chest this time around given my previous implants were overs. 😩 The nurse said they look a lot better than the 275s did in terms of shape and the muscle coverage has created a nicer slope. I really hope I'm happy with the overall outcome and there is no more surgery in the near future. I think my fiance' would kill me! 😂 I'll keep you updated. PS. These damn drains are a pain in the butt!
  8. They are looking a lot better after a week. Still a little more than I would like but I've read that some people feel it takes 2 weeks for them to look good. The bruising has gone now so that makes a big difference!
  9. It didn't hurt as much as I expected! I think my nurse did a really good job of numbing me beforehand. She put the numbing cream on a good 10-15 minutes before she injected. She did my anti-wrinkle stuff first while the numbing cream worked it's magic. The initial prick was a little painful but not too bad at all, no worse than the dysport/botox. It's more just a strange feeling coz you can feel something is going into your lip and it feels tight. I think if the numbing cream hadn't had time to work properly it might be pretty painful though!
  10. Hey, so I finally bit the bullet and got lip filler on Saturday. Just 1ml. More in the top than the bottom as I basically had no upper lip. I'm pretty bruised and swollen, which I've read is normal. I have a few lumpy bits in my top lip that I can feel but not see. I'm just wondering how long before I can expect them to look 'good' or at least decent. Coz at the moment I definitely look much worse than my before pic 😆
  11. Absolutely. I do think now after having lived with both that I preferred the 350 though. I'm in no hurry to go back under the knife just yet. I'll give it some time and if I still feel this way in 6 months, maybe I will.
  12. You totally have a point and I agree. I've decided not to rush into anything. I'm not unhappy with the 275's. I do actually think they look great. And you're right. Trying to be perfect is impossible. I guess I am a bit of a perfectionist and having no control over something like this is hard! It's not like you can spend a few days trying out all the different sizes and shapes in your body until you find what you like best and then go ahead with the surgery. Now that I've started work I'm a lot busier and have a lot less time to criticise myself in front of the mirror so that's probably a good thing. I think I'm just gonna sit on it for now. x
  13. I'll probably go back to the same surgeon. I think they were actually perfect first time around. I'm in 2 minds about going any bigger than that. I wear size 6/8 in clothes and with my 350's they would only just fit around my boobs in dresses so I think any bigger than that and I'd have problems. But at the same time I'm like, maybe a little bit bigger would be nice? And to go through 2 surgeries to end up exactly where I started makes me feel like it was all a waste of money (which it is). But at the same time, I want to go with what I'm gonna be happy with long term and I don't want to end up feeling too big again. I think the 350's were perfect. I should've left them alone! Haha.
  14. I had my implants reduced form 350cc HP last year to 275cc Mod+. I was super happy initially coz I'd felt 'heavy' with my 350's and felt like my old, slim self with my 275's. Despite what a lot of people might say, 75cc was definitely a significant difference for me. However, I now feel like my boobs looked great before and I was being overly critical and maybe just not used to having a fuller figure. I'm a very stubborn person and it's very hard for me to accept something (other people's opinions) unless I can see/learn for myself. I'm now working full-time and considering a revision again. I either want to go back to the 350cc HP or even go for something 'slightly' larger. I'm looking into ultra HP but I'm worried. Not a lot of surgeons seem to use ultra HP. Has anybody had ultra HP that is willing to share pics? I'm really struggling to know what is the right choice for me. There is part of me that really admires something more voluptuous but I'm also afraid I may feel uncomfortable again 😕
  15. I'm actually really happy with my downsize but every now and then I miss my bigger implants. I'd say 90% of the time I'm happy. I don't know if I'd actually bother with a revision to increase the size again, especially seeing as I felt 'top heavy' with the 350's. I wish I could just swap between the 2 sizes when the occasion called for it haha. But I am looking into getting private health cover and I figure a future surgery is a possibility so want to get myself the best cover!
