    Nipple Sensitivity LOST after BL?????

    Hey gal. It's hard to tell for me in these early stages but my sensation appears intact so far! Because of the complex incisions of the lift and augmentation procedure, it is likely sensation will be affected in some way at least initially. Immediately post op and up until two weeks I was essentially numb. At week three I know have sensation again but it does feel a little different. I.e., uncomfortable in the shower with the hot water and if bras graze them the wrong way. I am not too worried myself as I was never incredibly sensitive anyway, but I understand it's definitely important for some women. My advice is not to panic initially if you are numb or hypersensitive, as nerves take a long time (approximately 30 days or longer) to regenerate fully. There will be inflammation and swelling at the site which will impact sensation as well. Hope that helps somewhat. I feel pretty confident mine will be near normal once they've settled.

    Needing info ladies.. Lift n implants..

    Hey hun. I didn't reply initially because my stats are different (163cm/59kg/BWD 11cm). To give you an idea, my lift + implants took me from a small 10c to a 10DD or thereabouts, and my implants were 330cc which are considered small-average implants. From your stats it sounds like you could easily carry an implant above 400cc but it depends on your breast width diameter/ chest circumference, the look you want to achieve and the opinion of your surgeon. He or she will let you know at your consult, it's always best to confirm with them Feel free to friend me also I have some pics.

    My Teeth Update

    Wow- even for temporaries those look fantastic! Hard to see without viewing the whole face but totally get de-identifying. That sounds like such a long, uncomfortable process. I'm doing invisalign right now and the filing back/ shaping part is awful! Not necessarily painful jut a really uncomfortable sensation. Adding strong bleach to the process has been a nightmare and to be honest, worse than the pain of my boob job haha. They look like they will be amazing when complete. Can I ask how much it's setting you back?

    @Ellabella1 I have no experience with Cosmeditour but I had a lift + augmentation with Dr Richardson and the results are excellent. Nothing but positive reviews here that I have read. if you have a significant asymmetry he will definitely work to correct that and a decent amount of girls will have different sized implants to even them out. Don't worry, he definitely knows what he's doing!

    Post Surgery Bra / Compression Bra

    It's really tricky hey! I've read a few conversations on here that sizing can be tough to get right especially since your boobs will change so much in the early stages. My nurse provided me with one at the first post op appointment- the brand was Design Veronique (I think that's the brand name) and it was specific for my procedure. The sizing just went by band size and I ended up with a small. In Lorna Jane bras (which some girls use post op) I haven't changed size. I'm 163cm/59kg/ BWD 11cm with 330cc implants. I wore an XS in crops before and am now a S. I don't know if that helps haha everyone will be different. I am finding post op that I can wear the same crops I had before but obviously fill them out a lot differently and they are more "compressive" lol.
  6. Hey hun, I'm no expert but I am in the medical field myself and would recommend you have that looked at by a doctor as soon as you can. Some girls have a problem called "spitting stitches", I'm not sure if that's the problem here but it does need to be monitored. Because it's open there's no barrier to infection and the breast tissue is vulnerable at the moment. Are you still on the antibiotics? Can't give any specific advice of course but definitely see someone qualified when you can to have the stitches dealt with or at least the wound covered to prevent infection occurring. Re: the lift, I had one too so I definitely relate to the worries about re-sagging. The post op bra i was given by my nurse is by the brand "Design Veronique" (they have a website) and has adjustable velcro straps. It is very supportive and relatively comfortable. When I am active (i.e., walking for exercise etc) I wear that with a stretchy crop over the top for extra compression/support. Hope that helps, good luck and I hope your wound issue resolves soon! Edit to say: I didn't see the above replies when I wrote mine so I'm sorry if my advice was repetitive!

    Totally relate to all of this! Driving has been harder than expected and involves a surprising amount of pectoral muscle use! I started driving after 1 week but only just down the road to the shops. I wouldn't have been ok to do longer drives and tbh the seatbelt is still uncomfortable and i often hold it away from my chest (which is clearly not super safe). Checking blind spots and changing gears is also tricky, but getting easier. I was absolutely exhausted toward the day 10 post op mark. Like four hour sleeps during the day kind of tired. It helped me to take it down a notch and just let my body rest. It's putting so much energy into healing wounds/ getting rid of inflammation etc, so totally understandable you are feeling tired! On my day 10 post op I headed out and literally tripped down the stairs ! I was absolutely horrified afterwards and caught myself with my hands outstretched so a really bad position. Luckily everything was ok but it was really scary and I was so worried I'd done damage. And yeah, like you I was/am still a bit tight and swollen but really noticed a difference once I resumed proper walking (~ 5ks) day 12 post op . That really seemed to help them to drop into position more. If you have a look at my album you can see a huge difference. Totally normal for there to be variation between individuals though, and I had a lift as well so I guess they might drop quicker? Looking forward to seeing photos of everyones progress

    Calling girls with similar measurements to mine

    I'm 5"4, 59kg so a bit bigger than you but same bwd (11cm) and I got 330cc round high profile under the muscle (Dr Richardson). I'm two weeks post op tomorrow. I went with the size my PS recommended (he wouldn't go larger) and they are a perfect size for me. I imagine once they have settled they will look natural enough but with the round high profile I didn't necessarily want *too* natural if that makes sense. I'm guessing my post op size will be a 10 D/DD , I started with a small 10c. Absolutely love them, wouldn't want any larger or smaller. In tops they can look quite modest or really cleavagey depending on the bra/ cut of the shirt etc. Hope that helps, feel free to message!

    @LauraJane I had my lift and augmentation done with Dr Richardson and he has been brilliant. i am just over 1 week post op now, and am over the moon with the results so far. He and his team are incredibly professional and provide excellent care. My result is exactly what I was after- shape, size, position, everything. He will give you the look you are after, whether it's quite natural/modest or big and "out there" (within the limits of your measurements of course). I would highly recommend you consult with him! Although I am sure there are loads of excellent surgeons in Bris. Have also heard really good things about Dr Andrew Broadhurst.

    Concerned breasts are are to round

    I think they look fantastic and I'm actually super jealous! Mine are 330cc and look nowhere near that big. 3 weeks is early days so don't stress too much yet, they have plenty of changing to do over the months. Did you get rounds or teardrops? I actually thought they were teardrop implants looking at them- very natural shape!

    Calling all Dr Richardson girls

    With the symmastia and double bubble risk, Dr R will select the implant size with the least risk of this occurring and it sounds like 330/360 is perfect. I wouldn't worry too much about the Vectra imaging, it's nice to get a guesstimate of what you'll end up with but most girls say their final result looks way different. Mine look way different from the sizers as well (obviously haha). I'm similar to you but a bit bigger, 5"4 and 59kg, size 6/8 on top previously. Had a little bit of breast tissue to begin with (around a small 10c). Breast width distance 11cm so I'm quite narrow across the top. I have some photos in my gallery , just got the tape off yesterday you're welcome to take a look- just friend request me. I'll upload more as I go along, only day 6 at the moment so they're still looking a bit strange haha but I love them. Dr R was *spot on* with the size recommendation.

    Calling all Dr Richardson girls

    I hope I didn't make him sound grumpy or withdrawn ahah- he is really nice and such a gentleman, just not as chatty as some doctors I know . Not sure of your stats/measurements but 330/360s are a great size! I secretly wanted the 360's but it was a no go for me, he wouldn't do any bigger with my BWD. I love my 330's and on my frame they are full but I wouldn't say big. He does spend a lot of time detailing the risks which is good and exactly what he should be doing- but don't let them freak you out too much, a lot of them are very small risks and only happen rarely. What do you think you will go with? Did you try the sizers with the sports bra?

    Botox area points for crows feet

    @Sonski it kind of made my brows spring up toward the end so the overall effect was lifted. Because with me the muscle in that area usually has a downward pull, injecting it had the effect of relaxing and therefore allowing the skin to lift a little and the edge of the brow. It was great haha- I looked really refreshed. I do have very full cheeks naturally though, which aid in pushing everything up. My injector is awesome and gives really effective but subtle results- nobody noticed I looked different until I told them. Hope you love yours! I am a bit obsessed and thinking of getting some to get rid of the smile lines soon!

    Calling all Dr Richardson girls

    @Wandering Fairy this is so exciting! Make sure you get all your questions and concerned addressed. It will be fun playing with sizes and choosing your new look! I had my post op appointment today, bandages off and am thrilled with how mine look so far. he has done a spectacular job.
