  1. I just wanted to update on my journey and say that I'm now feeling fantastic about everything. I do have a slightly larger gap than before but it's not much bigger and they are coming together as the muscle relaxes. Also, I used to feel my boobs touched too much when I wore a push-up, so this may be a good thing! I've noticed a lot of difference in the past few weeks. I'm loving my silhouette in clothes and dresses. When I downsized to my 275cc implants, I stopped wearing dresses because I didn't feel attractive in them anymore. Well..... let me tell you. I spent $1500 on new dresses in 4 days
  2. I'm so sorry to hear your story. I can't imagine how much this must have affected you in relationships at such a young age, especially when the whole reason you got a BA was because you were insecure about your chest! It was so wrong of your surgeon not to correct this and waive his surgeon's fee. Understandably, hospital fees and anaesthetics fees can't be waived but this was his error and he should've worked with you to correct it. Are you working at the moment? Do you have children? What is your situation? Obviously, if you had the means to fix this I understand you would. I hope somebody c
  3. I swear to god there was a reply here from TheFox that I couldn't respond to while the site was down! I'm sorry!
  4. Hey! I haven't been to Dr Donna but I know that a number of girls on here have and he isn't afraid to go large if that's the look you're after! I've only heard good things about him but unfortunately, can't speak from experience! His before and afters look great and he's also reasonably priced. I can't see why he wouldn't want to work with interstate patients! It's just a matter of you getting yourself there and staying long enough for follow-up. I don't know if he'd require you to come back at 5 or 6 weeks? Maybe that's something one of the other girls can help you with. All the best!
  5. Thanks for your reply Kit! I actually decided to measure myself with an online calculator (68cm underbust and 89cm bust), which makes me a 10D. I actually found that the bombshell website had a chart for different international bra sizes and what size should fit. According to that, a small should fit in their style. Very helpful!
  6. So I love ordering gym clothes online from places like Ryderwear, Echt, Bombshell, etc. I've never ordered any sports bras though as I was waiting til I had my revision. I was just wondering how many of you girls go with sizing with your implants. Do you find that if your band size fits a small, you're still able to stretch the material enough for it to fit your assets comfortably? Alternatively, if you move up to a medium, is the band really loose. I have a very narrow underbust and I'm concerned about going up in bigger sizes and having no support underneath. Also, I know there is huge varia
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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 tim
  11. 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 wan
  12. 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.
  13. 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 re
  14. 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!
  15. 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!
  16. 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 ?
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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 u
  20. 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
  21. 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!
  22. Hey, I'm just wondering what the best medical insurance company is that may assist with costs of cosmetic surgery, whether it be BA or rhinoplasty, etc. I may be getting a BA revision in the next 12 months and am also considering rhinoplasty. Now that I'm finally working again, I figure I can plan ahead and pay into something that may be able to give back in terms of what I want.
  23. 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.
  24. 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!'
  25. @TheFox It's been 12 months already?! Wow, that's gone fast.
