  1. Apparently not, those tests came back normal too!
  2. Thank you! Yeah, it’s hard to know what to do. Looking forward to booking a consult 🙂
  3. I’m almost ten years post op. I haven’t had ‘settling’ pain formany years 🙂
  4. So my mri results show no rupture. So there is no reason they can see for the pain 😕 Double edged sword
  5. Dr appointment tomorrow to get the mri results! Also getting blood tests done as my psych thinks my thyroid looks different.😬
  6. Yep, I’m planning to as long as there’s nothing preventing it. It’s kind of funny in a way, I actually wanted to get them replaced this year anyway! Thinking of going a bit smaller but with a higher profile. I’ll update again after I get the mri results. The next thing will be finding a surgeon to do the replacement...
  7. Hi, so it seems that both May have ruptured but are still contained in the implant pocket. I’m now booked in for an MRI on Tuesday to confirm, as apparently ultrasounds can have a high percentage of high positives with this. I think it’s accurate though because of the pain I feel o relieved just knowing what’s going on!
  8. Hi everyone, in the last couple of weeks I’ve been getting a sharp and burning pain around the edges of what I think may be the implant pockets. Both breasts, in the cleavage and near the underarm. I had my implants done about 9 years ago and have had an ultrasound, but waiting for the results is stressing me out. Just wondering if anyone else has seen or experienced this? Thank you so my Dr’s office called me today to schedule a follow up regarding my results.... originally my Dr said I should be able to call for results if everything is ok. Now I’m really stressing 😭
  9. Hi, Almost ten years ago I got 350cc moderate plus profile round implants. They were beautiful! I’ve since had a baby and put on a little weight. They still look good, but I’m thinking of going for a smaller implant but with more projection. Has anyone done this and had good results? Thank you everyone 🙂
  10. I got 1ml of filler around four weeks ago. I got some bruising and could feel some small lumps in my lips too. I brought a small ice pack with me to my appointment and applied it on the way home and on and off afterwards for the next couple of hours. The swelling was so much less than the first time I ever tried fillers! So that’s a tip I would recommend. A majority of my swelling went down over the first two weeks. The bruising went in a few days. Arnica cream is really good for helping to get rid of bruising too. Also, I don not feel any of the lumps that were there earlier. It takes at least a few days if you’ve got a lot of swelling.
  11. So the G5 massage was different! It didn’t hurt at all, and they start on the lowest setting and work up over the course of treatments. A little tip, make sure you wear your compression garment for the appointment. I had worn mine, but apparently someone hasn’t in the past and it can make the experience quite uncomfortable. You wear the garment during the G5. I was advised not to do my home massage the next day because of the swelling the G5 can cause. I did feel a little more tender for the rest of the day, but nothing bad, just that you knew something had been done. The last couple of days has seen the biggest reduction in pain and stiffness for me. I’ve got more of an itch sort of feeling on my legs than anything, and practically no pain apart from a slight bruised feeling when I touch my body.
  12. Day five post op and I had my follow up appointment today. Everythung ud looking great. Dr Chen is even surprised with how flat and small I’m looking. He’s advised me on how to massage the areas to reduce swelling and to discourage lumps and scar tissue. It was a bit scary to do it to begin with, but I got used to the pain, it wasn’t too bad I’m also booked in for my first G5 massage at the Indooroopilly clinic on Thursday, which also helps to get the best results. Still very happy
  13. I think he does, I’ll double check though. Day 2 post op and I’ve taken off the combine dressings as all the oozing stopped in the first 24 hours. I was so happy to have a shower but it totally wiped me out. Some areas are painful to touch and others are numb. I’m still happy with how flat my stomach looks too!! It says laser lipo on his site, not sure if it’s the same though? Something about skin tightening
  14. So I had my lipo done yesterday. The clinic was nice and the staff very friendly. An RN went through the paperwork with me, then I took 2 diazepam and got changed into the surgical gown and stuff. in the surgery, I got painted with betadine, lay down on the bed and Dr Chen placed the IV cannula. I didn’t feel a thing! After he started giving me the sedatives I really don’t remember much, just noticing a bit of pain every now and then, I’m guessing it was injecting the local anaesthetic. Then I was waking up and the nurse helped me out on the compression garment. They called my husband an hour before I was due out so he could be there when I was finished. I left with a bag of dressings for when mine soak through. i slept so much when I got home. Then when the local wore off... omg!! The pain! It’s hard getting up and down and also going to the loo. Rught sway though, I can see my silhouette is much slimmer and my belly is much flatter 🙂 i have my follow up appointment on Monday
  15. So I’m getting lipo for the very first time on 16th May with Dr Chen at Ashbury. I haven’t seen too many topics for lipo around Brisbane over the last few years, so I thought I’d add my story in the hopes it will help someone else looking to take the journey. I’ll update as I progress. So to start, I had a consult with Dr Chen in March. He is lovely and friendly to talk to. He also wanted to give me a realistic expectation of what the lipo can achieve. He let me know that because I’d had a child I won’t get a flat stomach. I’m not too worried about that as I’ve never had a flat stomach no matter how slim I’ve been! I’ll backtrack a little to add that I’m getting upper and lower abdo, inner and outer thighs, hips and that little area under the bum cheeks 😁 So yeah, one week until it happens! I don’t think the wait between consult and surgery day is too long, I chose May as it worked better for me.
