    G88 got a reaction from arahia in Implant Removal due to possible mentor recall   
    For the past year, I have been thinking of getting an implant removal. I haven't had any complications so far, but I've found living with implants annoying. Also, the articles on BII and Lymphoma diseases have created massive anxiety for me. I reached out to my surgeon and the secretary passed on a clinician's letter to say the Therapeutic Goods Administration have proposed to recall Mentor Textured Implants, which incidentally I have. Just thought I give a heads up to others! 
    The TGA has informed MENTOR® of a “Notice of Proposal to Suspend” (Notice) for a period of six (6) months relating to the following products: 
     
    • MENTOR® SILTEX® Cohesive I / 354-4400 (ARTG 110588)  
    • MENTOR® SILTEX® CPG 334-1304 (ARTG 110589)  
    • MENTOR® SILTEX® Contour Profile Becker 35 Expander 324-1305 (ARTG 110592)  
    • MENTOR® SILTEX® Round Becker 25 Expander 354-8000 (ARTG 130678)  
    • MENTOR® SILTEX® Cohesive II / 324-4350 (ARTG 119809)
    • CPX4 Breast Tissue Expander (ARTG 226977)
    • CPX4 Breast Tissue Expander with Suture Tabs (ARTG 226982)

    Hi Ladies,

    I just had my surgery with Dr. Rizk (back in Mid Dec). Really pleased with the results. He is no longer with Inspire Cosmetics, and has a practice in Burwood. I personally chose him over the other Inspire Cosmetics surgeons because he is a plastic surgeon as opposed to a cosmetic surgeon ( not all the surgeons at inspire are plastics) He is really good at what he does - and he also listens   He was encouraging me to go 400cc, but I was really nervous and said that having small breasts all my life, I just wanted a moderate change as I have a pretty active lifestyle and couldn't imagine having bigger boobs. He listened and then gave me 325 and 350cc. So pleased with them!

    G88 got a reaction from excited_much in Who misses their small boobs??   
    I do, sometimes.

    I mostly miss the clothing. I did get a modest size 325 and 350cc - which bumped me from a B to C cup. But choosing my clothes is becoming a bit of a challenge. Anything with a high neckline makes me look 'matronly'. I'm also not used to the staring and gawking of the opposite sex (although, I do enjoy my husband ) . Pretty uncomfortable to me!

    G88 got a reaction from Suzie 8f in Price Listings for BA's in Sydney   
    Hi guys,

    I just got a BA done in December! Really pleased with my surgeon (Dr Joseph Rizk in Burwood). I found the researching part a little difficult, but now that I'm on the other side, I wanted to help out other interested ladies. I wanted to post up the different price points that I was generally quoted by different surgeons. Please don't take this as gospel - if you are truly interested in a particular surgeon ask them directly because the price might change. This was quoted during Nov - Dec 2016 for a standard breast augmentation on a 20 something, healthy woman with no issues. Obviously prices change but here are the prices and some very general remarks about the surgeon. All this information was either quoted to me via email, phone or by their website. Hopefully, it'll give you a place to start! Happy hunting!

    I've heard that Dr. Rizk is no longer associated with Inspire Cosmetics and Dr Kohout has been performing surgeries in their Sydney clinic. I'm based in Melbourne and have asked for a consult with Dr. Kohout but unfortunately I can't travel to Sydney.

    Yeah, I've been eyeing Inspire Cosmetics as well for my lipo but when I go their online brochure, it doesn't say much about their surgeons. I'd really appreciate some insights here.
