    Chinchilla got a reaction from teardrop in Revision cost / Dr Tavakoli   
    I had a revision with Dr  just over 18 months ago, pretty much implant size and shape change with extra things done including internal bra and an overnight hospital stay, and all up before my health fund rebate it was close to $16k. 
    Hope this helps.

    Chinchilla got a reaction from teardrop in Training in the gym   
    I had to have a revision as my first set of implants got a dent in the cleavage and pushed out to the side from exercising. I never did weights for my chest only dips and knee push ups but I was unlucky. I even had movement when just washing my hands.
    I had dual plane rounds in the first time. I am so concerned now that I don't do anything that moves my chest muscles at all. It won't happen to everyone but it can happen.

    @Wanting boobs when washing hands I had a little bit of flexion but when doing dips / push ups it was full flex distortion. Here's a pic of 1 - the dents, 2 & 3 - the flex distortion and 4 - my current set of implants with no dents / flex movement. 
    While it is something to be aware of, it's not a given it will happen to everyone. If you don't have a lot ofmovement you should be ok, most girls will feel the implant when doing chest exercises but not have issues. Mine would move out to the side about 1-2 inches when doing dips.

    Chinchilla got a reaction from I HaveBoobs in BA and remedial massage   
    With my first BA I had a massage (I think) around the 3 month mark. I told my masseuse I'd had them done and she gave me a towel to roll up and put above my boobs, under the front of the shoulders when on my stomach to take the pressure off them. If you either tell them, or ask for a towel to do this it really makes it that much more comfy. I ask for a towel each time now when I get one.

    A great bra works but I always double bra for any running and intense jumping exercises and you should be good. I've got 545cc (also had 390cc) and run/sprint, box jumps, burpees without any issues.

    Hey @Honeycakes
    Lovely to hear from you....and so glad to hear that you are doing well and loving your girls! They do look amazing so I don't blame you
    I'm doing good as well. Loving the fact that I fill out a bikini and bra now, which I was never ever able to do pre BA. I do, however, still wish that I've gone bigger and hp's, but that boat has truly sailed so I have to get myself to stop obsessing about that now. The fact that I'm not 100% happy with my size is definitely weighing me down and stopping me from really embracing my new assets and enjoying them. I realise that I should be enjoying them WAY more and be SO much happier, but I'm not. I just look at them on occasion and think "meh"...."whatever", which is not how it's supposed to be. So I need to get over it and make the mind switch.
    Hope all you Oct 16 ladies are doing very well!

    Chinchilla got a reaction from LaurenT in Best lip balm or moisturiser   
    Here's another one to add to the list. I read a review on it months ago and have been looking for it ever since and this week I stumbled across it at my local Priceline. It's only $4.99 and in a few days it's done magic for my lips that were so dry they were cracked and bleeding. It's more of a menthol / tingly type but I think it's great for its purpose. 
    I've also been trying the By Terry over the past few weeks but don't really notice any difference to my burts bees in terms of moisture level.

    @Mrs Freckles I can understand the clothing claustrophobia but my personal thoughts are that you pay so much for new girls that I don't want to risk any damage to them. My mind also goes back to the old sports bra ad (perhaps berlei) about a b cup bouncing up to 10cm in a non supportive bra when running. Perhaps I'm super protective having had a revision due to exercise damage (dent in cleavage from chest work) and I don't want my girls moving a millimetre ?
    Good luck with your decisions! x

    Thanks girls, thinking about it some more I guess I could be happy to bra and crop top while running. What ever will be best for the new girls, I definitely do not want to be back under the knife anytime soon after this BA (thanks for that realisation).
    I'm the kind of girl who de-bra's as soon as I walk in the door. So I know I have some changes to make. I am looking at 400 or 425s but keep freaking out they will be huge on me and my lifestyle, like I said I wish I had that crystal ball !!

    I wear tigerlily, seafolly, C&M , Zimmermann and Victoria Secrets bikinis. I also tend to find the triangle do make them look faker but they tend to fit better. I am a size 8 but find I need a 10 or even 12 in bikini tops now and the ones with tie up backs are always a better fit. Perhaps try buying off the iconic - you can always order 1-2 sizes of the same style and they have 100 day returns.

    Chinchilla got a reaction from iDream_of_CeeCees in Revision from overs to unders - rippling   
    Hi! I have unders and have rippling - probably not what you want to hear but as you probably know the amount of rippling is relative to the size of implants and fat/tissue. Are you looking at going bigger or smaller? Where is your rippling? 
    I had a revision last year and went from 390cc - with which I had rippling on the outer sides to 545cc with Flex HD which has hidden the outer rippling but I now have it in my cleavage. My dr did say the bigger the implants I have on me, the worse it would be as I have no tissue. I enquired about fat grafting and he advised you need a good fat cell to take it from because they need the inner fat to graft and I don't have that. He told me my realistic options were to go smaller implants (no! - I love my new size) or put on a little extra weight. I put on a little with the exercise restrictions of the BA and holiday time and while it was better, I'm not happy with the weight so trying to lean up again - therefore heading back to the rippling.
    Could you enquire about the flex HD? It's a strip of cadaver skin (off putting I know) that is sewn in to thicken the skin. It's worked great on my side rippling. 
    My revision was well over $15k so I can't help you with a recommendation but I also got an internal bra with it that put the price up.

    Chinchilla got a reaction from iDream_of_CeeCees in Revision from overs to unders - rippling   
    It's always such a hard thing to go through and we trust our surgeons. 
    I know Dr Dona does revisions and I believe they may be around the $10k mark so perhaps have a look into him. 
    I know I sound like all drs but they will continue to change over the next 4 months for you. They say you can hold onto swelling and drop for up to 12 months. Maybe hold tight and see how the size difference goes in that time. 
    I know I love my exercise too - so I understand your dilemma. Ultimately though I think of you have the rippling now where you have it, it may not improve with unders. 
    It sounds like you had enough tissue but we know as women the first place we lose fat is from our boobs. 
    Have you raised the revision option with your surgeon and ask about costs etc?

    Chinchilla got a reaction from mycosmeticjourney in 525cc girls   
    Hi Ella, I went from 390cc to 545cc so a very similar jump to you, although I went from round to teardrop. 
    I found at the start the swelling didn't make them look that much larger but as it went down they started to look bigger to me. I also went up at least a cup size in bras - was an 8E now spilling out of 8F and ordered some 8Gs to try. 
    Now 6 months later I feel they do look a lot bigger than my first set on me but maybe it's because they are wider and taller but I do also notice it in the projection. In clothes I can see it and naked. 
    In order to have a massive difference you would need to do a huge size change but there is still a difference in 150cc+ particularly if you are on the smaller side. 
    Wait for the releasing and settling to happen and you will notice some changes - maybe not as much as you want but there will be some.

    Chinchilla got a reaction from Kismet in Anatomicals..why pick them   
    I had rounds and changed to anatomical last October. I went with them this revision as I have a long torso and found with the round that I had no real upper pole. I went from flat bony chest to round implants. My new ones are tall implants and I feel they give me a better look. 
    My round ones did create a slope but I lost the upper part.  
    I should also comment on rotation as I'm a very active person - Kayla Itsines/functional training twice a week, Body Attack 3 times a week, running and stand up paddling plus more - and my surgeon knew how active I am and he suggested the anatomical, so I guess if it was a big risk he would have said go with round. I do ensure they are well strapped at the gym (double bra for body attack) so I hope this reduces the risk.

    This is day 2 and still very swollen and tight but give it a few weeks and they will be perfect ??
    most pain the first 24 hours and some pain when I first stand up but well maintained with pain relief.  I can tell I am going to love love these!! 
    Less pain then my first BA but same if not more from my last revision but purely because of the size they are definitely exactly what I want ??
