    Consultation with Dr Cooter - Medicare

    That's interesting. I went to Dr Cooter and I'm pretty sure I got a medicare rebate on my consult. However, I remember the first consult was quite expensive, like $240. Consults after that were significantly cheaper though and my follow-up appointments didn't cost anything, even when I returned 2 years later to downsize.

    Revision and smaller implants -advice please

    I completely agree @TheFox I looked so much thinner before I had implants and even downsizing has made me appear a lot slimmer again. And yes, I know what you mean about them making you look healthier and less skeletal. You can be the exact same weight with bones sticking out but if you have some boobs on you, people will say you look great. Take away the boobs and people go 'omg, you're sick!'

    @TheFox It's been 12 months already?! Wow, that's gone fast.

    Revision and smaller implants -advice please

    Hey I recently downsized (5 months ago). I always felt that the implants were too big for me and I didn't like the projection. My skin has tightened up nicely. My surgeon put sutures at the lower borders of the capsule to help support the smaller implant. They look great! I only downsized by 75cc and switched from HP to mod+. Of course, how well they recover depends on your skin elasticity, how much natural droop you have, how long you've had the implants, etc. I found looking at explant and downsize without lift photos on real self gave me an idea of how skin retracts and improves over time.

    Yes, definitely! I'll update tomorrow. I have my 5-week follow up with the PS tomorrow morning.

    Revision and scared (picture included)

    I'm not a surgeon but at first glance, it looks like the boob on the right (in the picture) maybe has CC?

    25 days post op. I think they're looking tighter.

    Revision done!

    Thanks That's all I wanted the fist time around! A subtle enhancement. To me, they're still much larger than my pre-op boobs and I can still make them look big if I want to. How are you going with your decision now?? @JD*
  9. It's so hard to know how you're going to feel! Most people end up wishing they'd gone a little bigger but opinions also change over time. They look smaller initially because they're squashed by the muscle and then as they drop and fluff, they look bigger and some people who complained of being too small end up satisfied. But there are definitely those who feel too big afterwards too (me haha). I think it has a lot to do with your frame and your chest width. My surgeon pushed the biggest size I could go on me because of my height. I think if my chest had've been wider and more appropriate for my height, it might've been fine. I'm 171cm and about 52kg now with an 11cm BWD. I think most people my height have around 13-14cm BWD, which makes a big difference in how you carry the cc's. My underbust only measures 27.5 inches around and therefore, a small number of cc's goes a long way. I lost a whole cup by a 75cc decrease (which I still don't understand coz the math doesn't add up - maybe it's more like 3/4 cup? I've lost). According to many of the surgeons on real self, women who wear a 32 band size only need 100cc per cup size increase (rings true for me). Women who wear a 36 need closer to 200cc per cup. This totally makes sense coz you need more volume to fill the wider chest width. So, your measurements play a big role as well as your goals and the look you're trying to achieve. I know people say that 50cc isn't noticeable and while this may be true for people with a wider chest and more native breast tissue, if you're narrow and skinny with not much of your own tissue, it is noticeable. The difference might not be drastic but it can certainly be the difference between you feeling comfortable or uncomfortable with the size or content versus wishing you'd gone a little bigger. Oh, and my vectras looked awful! They made me rethink getting a BA altogether. Thankfully, they looked much better than that in real life.

    Hi KLJ I had my first BA in 2016, less than 2 years ago. I always felt they were too big for me and what I wanted. I only downsized 3 weeks ago. I'm 171cm and 52kg. My BWD was only about 11cm and I ended up with an implant 11.7cm wide (surgeon said that was the maximum width I could take). So I kept the same width and just changed from HP to mod+.

    Natrelle Inspira Soft Touch Implants

    I don't have these implants but they are a pretty popular choice. The first surgeon I saw was going to use these on me. The surgeon I ended up going with said that Mentor are softer and that's why I chose Mentor. Both are good choices. The Inspira have a higher fill ratio, which makes them less likely to ripple. Mentor are a bit softer but more prone to ripples. There are a few girls on this forum who have them but haven't replied. They probably don't visit this forum anymore coz they're happy with their BA and have moved on! I think they are a good choice. I was going to use these for my revision initially because the surgeon had a 'free set' he could use on me. I didn't do my revision until 6 months later so he used them on someone else. But I would've been totally happy using them. The only reason I went with Mentor again is because I was happy with my first Mentors and figured, why change? I just wanted to decrease the size. Also, the Mentor allowed me to go slightly lower in projection.

    Revision done!

    Thank you. I feel sooo much more comfortable with the size. It's hard to believe that 75cc can make such a big difference but it's quite noticeable to me, even looking at the photos you can see a fairly significant difference. And I still feel like I have plenty of boob! Tried on my 10C bras this morning that I bought last Friday. They're fitting great.

    Cooper's Ligaments and Bras

    Yes, thank you both! I will look at what exercises might be helpful.

    Cooper's Ligaments and Bras

    Yes, I think I will stick with the notion of 'support, support, support!' I taped my nipples up with duck tape last night and this morning I used hypafix to do the same thing. So I think for the next few months I'll use the hypafix and just wait and see. I do need to improve my diet haha.
