  1. Hey there, I had surgery with dr Greensmith a year ago, you will be in great hands. In regards to having a person to accompany you home, this is a must. I’m a theatre nurse myself and legally we are not allowed to let you go home alone due to having an anaesthetic, you are more prone to injury (falling etc). The admissions nurse will also make sure you have someone as this is a requirement for surgery, not having a person could potientally result in your surgery being cancelled as if anything were to happen the hospital would be liable. This person will also have to sign a document saying they understand the discharge instructions they have given you as well as they will be taking care of you overnight due to the risks of potiental injury from the anaesthetic. Also I had drains in for 24 hours, I think he does this for most patients and they can be hard to hide, if your planning to keep it secret from your room mate, just a heads up. hope it all goes well
  2. Hey there! I also went to Andrew Greensmith and am 1 year post op I think I paid around $7200, maybe a little more, but I did get some extras such as sizers and a Keller funnel (helps get the implant in through a smaller incision) you will be in good hands, I’m a scrub nurse myself and knew the nurses in my theatre on the day. Although I have not worked with him myself, my nurse friends had told me that Andrew Greensmith is very good at what he does. It’s also a great price for a plastic surgeon. I often tell plastic surgeons I work with the price I paid and they are quite amazed they are able to offer such a low price for a plastic surgeon. hope I have helped
  3. I'd say 22 as this is around the age where woman start to stop developing in the boob area, though if she was at least 18 and wanted to do it I wouldn't stop her, but would prefer her to wait
  4. I reccomend dr Andrew Greensmith in Melbourne at Melbourne institute of plastic surgery
  5. I had a ba with Andrew Greensmith in December 2016, can not reccomend him enough. He is a fully qualified plastic surgeon and did an amazing job! Very professional and honest. Very happy with my results !
  6. I'm so happy I wanted the round augmented but somewhat natural look lol, they are perfect! And can only get better
  7. Hey guys I'm 2 weeks post op today! Here's a photo from day one (bottom) and 2 weeks (top) soooo happy And here is also a photo of one of my incisions 2 weeks post op, sorry still a little dry blood there
  8. Hey there @AED I had my ba last Thursday with your Brest/Melbourne institute of plastic surgery with dr Andrew Greensmith I highly reccomend them as they all are proper plastic surgeons, not just cosmetic, the difference being a cosmetic surgeon is usually they usually were/are a gp who went and did a shorter corse/certificate to become a cosmetic surgeon whereas a plastic surgeon has studied an intense degree in surgery and has specialised in plastics and reconstructive surgery, usually having more qualifications and experience. I myself am a theatre nurse who assists in surgery, and therefore was extremely picky in who I chose, I'd personally say do not go overseas, it's a gamble and so many people come back with botched jobs and need to get them fixed up in Australia anyways, your breast/ Melbourne institute is trying to stop this by offering the affordable ba here in Melbourne, at my consult my dr told me if I was getting this done a year ago before they started offering their new deal it would have cost me double! Ive had an amazing experience so far with my ba and my boobs have looked amazing since day one! A lot of the nurses who were in my operation I also work with so I knew that on the day surgery I was in excellent hands! I don't know about mr ritz but Andrew Greensmith used a Keller funnel and sizes, this was only around an extra $250 the keller funel is an no touch technique insertion which reduces the risk of infection as the implant is not being handled - also it enables the incision to be smaller, around 2cms. The sizers are put in before the implant to ensure the size he puts in is appropriate and closest to your desired size/ look. I found this very helpful as I had a slight difference in size of my boobs so he said to me he will try both 350 and 325 to see which one evens the smaller one out with the bigger one and now I have the same size all the team are very supportive and are great to deal with! Hope I have helped.
  9. @kelly1992 I can notice the swelling still, I hope it goes down for you soon! Looks like it would be annoying. i feel fine I have no more pain but still numb in my underboob and nipples, I feel more uncomfortable when going to bed due to having to slee upright, sometimes the compression bra gets annoying so I release it for a little bit or undo the lower 2 clips and it feels better. Can't wait to have a proper shower though ! I still have my dressings on so I'm waiting untill I get them off, just sponge bathing etc untill then. I'm feeling prettt stinky too as I was supposed to receive 2 bras but only got one and when I called to enquire about just buying another they said they have to speak to my surgeon about which bra or something like that, he just went on holidays lol, but tomorrow I am going to buy a post op bra from target just to wear while I put this bra in the wash, I think it's the quickest way i am going to get a bra at the moment lol I am also going to buy a pet hose thing to use in the bathtub to better wash as I don't have a removeable shower head
  10. So I have a little bit of bruising but i can't believe how much they have changed already, here's a pic 4 days post op - mind the nipples this was also taken on a weird angle
  11. Hey there I'm feeling good but just sore, I think I've been over doing it, over not being able to sleep properly! my surgeon uses drains for 24 hours and he prefers the fluid to be out then sitting around the implant to prevent infection which makes sense, he also used a Keller funnel for non touch technique i guess other surgeons don't feel they need to use them it really comes down to surgeon preferences
  12. Hey did anyone else have numb nipples and underboob for a few days post op?
  13. @kelly1992 I get them removed tomorrow at 10am
  14. I feel amazing ! No pain just slight tightness, I'm able to walk around, go to the toilet etc, I want to go down the superkarket but I have 2 drains in so I better not haha, I didn't have any pain relief in recovery as it was so much better then I expected, I'm so amazed considering I got under the muscle. I am trying to not over do it though, just amazed I can do things I thought I wouldn't be able to Ladies who said they could feel fluid and hear it, maybe it's this, these are my drains at the moment, could explain it?
  15. @kelly1992 they look amazing already! Who did u go with?? @DrMGirl2017 hope everything is going well for u x
