  1. @RKN hi ya! Yes you are correct In saying that surgery was about $9500 - $10000 (hospital stay overnight, Kollias surgery, anaesthetic fees and implants) Dr Kollias is actually quite comparable regarding cost. I had straight forward surgery, high round profile 450cc under the muscle. As @sabP mentioned though, he really is an AMAzING Plastic Surgeon and couldn’t recommend him high enough ? I’m 3 months post op and very happy with my results. Good luck on your decision whichever way you decide to go.
  2. Sorry @CJ- haven't been on here much lately. But in relation to your question, Yes they are! Iv been putting bio oil on mine as per my PS but Iv been a bit naughty lifting my son and think Iv overdone it a bit. Hope I haven't done any damage. I do think it will take a while before they will soften and lighten unfortunately. How are you going, did you get a second opinion?
  3. I'm sorry to hear Hun, you should be happy, especially after spending a lot of money like you said. I know the process is overwhelming and if I hadn't joined this forum and pre-read a lot of info before proceeding I would be wandering what is happening! The body is a mavellous wonderful thing with its healing capabilities, it really just does take time. From what I see and read it can take anywhere from 3-12 months for them to be fully settled in. So maybe they are looking square as hey shift down? (One of mine is currently higher than the other, so hoping it descends soon) still, in saying that, you shouldn't have to feel the way you are. Try and discuss this with your PS if you can, even if it's easier in an email perhaps if your too shy to discuss in person. I guess you could always have a consult and get a second opinion with another PS for peace of mind otherwise? Then you will at least know if it's normal and have an idea if they will settle over time? I know it's more money but at least you will feel better knowing. Have you put a thread on the forum to see if anyone has experienced anything similar? sending you lots of hugs.. Let me know how you go
  4. Hi ya @CJ- I'm doing well, I'm 5 weeks post-op now and finally feeling back to my normal self (with bigger boobies of course lol) My hubby keeps asking if I'm happy and I guess I am, I'm just waiting for the process of D & F to take place as I'm a bit sad they aren't a bigger i do have a wider cleavage as my PS said I would get compared to if I went over the muscle but they still come together nicely in a bra. What are you finding feels/looks weird? I did have a fair bit of swelling in my cleavage area which I was worried about but its seemed to have settled and disappeared now. Are you still on medication and are you sleeping upright/elevated still? ( I read that if you lay flat you will still encounter swelling) not sure how long for though?? i think if your still having discomfort you should bring it up to him again, you shouldnt have to suffer. The only pain I guess I experience now is the "zingers" they say it's like a sunburn feeling which I feel is correct. It's the nerves adjusting I believe. It's been hanging about awhile now. Hope you can get some relief and the swelling settles for you. Maybe ask your PS if OK to take neurofen zavance, as its anti-inflammatory it may help with the swelling?? Good luck hun, let me know how you go!
  5. Thank so much @BethM! What size did Dr Kollias recommend and what size are you hoping to achieve? He really does know his stuff, I know it's hard when you have your mind set on size as I initially wanted at least 500cc but I think Dr Kollias allows you to go to the maximum without compromising the end result. I got 450cc and fitted as D cup already, so hopefully with a bit of D &F Il get a bit more ? Overall I'm pretty happy as I was a large A before ? So finally had my surgery on Saturday! @Kit @Cupcake85 @I HaveBoobs @sabP All went really well ? Had a compression bra fitted (36D) and feeling a lot of pressure on the chest which I'm sure is to be expected. Taking panadol for the pain but wishing I took them up on the offer of stronger meds now I'm home as having trouble sleeping on my back and not resting as much as I probably should. Overall I'm pretty impressed as I thought I would be in much more pain and limited as to what I can do. Dr Kollias was AMAZING and the service and care from staff at St Andrews hospital was incredible ? I'm only at Day 2 but very happy so far with my results, can't wait for the D & F as my boobs feel like they are currently sitting near my throat lol ? I think the first few weeks will be the hardest but can't wait for the 6week home run and look forward to shopping and trying on new bras and bikinis ??

  7. Hi @BethM, im actually booked in for surgery 26/10, only 4 more sleeps ? Im also having 450cc dual plane smooth high profile. 14th Dec isn't far away now! Feel free to message me anytime, I'm not on here too often but will try to get back to you with any questions ? Thanks @I HaveBoobs @Cupcake85 @Kit hubby has 1 week off so better than nothing lol ? I will be taking full advantage and resting. My lil ones are 1.5yrs and the other just turned 4yrs. She loves to help but don't think she will be lifting him anytime soon.. hahaha ? Really appreciate all the amazing advice from all you ladies! 4 more sleeps ? Will keep you posted!! ? MM
  8. Yay @Crystal_ how exciting! Where are you located? im in Adelaide and booked 26/10! p.s my birthday is the 25/10 ? Hehe
  9. Yay Yay! Congratulations! So happy for you and glad to hear it all went well ? Good luck with the D &F, look forward to hearing about your process. 1wk and 6 days to go for mine ?
  10. Thanks so much @sabP i do have family in Adelaide but they are 1.5hrs away from me and have their hands full with little ones also. I really appreciate you taking the time to reply, I didn't even think about the button up tops, great idea! here's hoping to a speedy recovery. MM
  11. Hi all, i have a very enquisitive 4yr who is bound to ask questions about me being in hospital and post op surgery ( mummy has bigger boobies lol) just wandering if anyone else has any advice or experience on what they told their lil ones thanks in advance ?
  12. Hi everyone, i have surgery booked with Dr Kollias in 2 weeks and was hoping for some info on what to expect pre and post op and also any advice for recovery? i have 2 lil ones and my hubby works away so concerned about the lifting my lil one in the cot ? How long am I suppose to wait before lifting? also and advice on post op recovery thanks in advance ?
  13. Hi @DDaa 'When is your surgery booked? Mine is in 2 weeks, getting nervous now M
  14. Hi @RKN, I have booked surgery with Dr Kollias for 26th October ? I have had 2 consultations now and I just felt really comfortable with him. He explained everything in full but I was a lil unsure about whether I wanted to go over or under muscle so I had a second consult at no charge and we discussed both in full and decided on dual plane 450cc smooth round High profile. Dr.K was very responsive to my emails and I never felt like I was rushed at my appointments. He doesn't promote his work coz his priorities are cancer patients (something I admired) but he did show me photos of his work and they look amazing! Im yet to have my surgery as I mentioned but I am pretty excited as I have a lot of confidence in him as per a lot of other girls on this forum. As the other girls mentioned, the surgery is a competitive price at $9'500 which includes overnight stay in hospital. Let me know how you go! When are you thinking of having surgery? MM
  15. @Kit he mentioned the pros and cons to both but suggested overs due to me liking to excercise and the fact my pinch test was at 3 so said I had enough tissue to do overs. It wasn't till after the consult I started to question what I actually wanted. I probably should of researched a bit more and and spoke with others prior to my appt. I do have another consult appt booked, so il be able to discuss a bit more with him then. Thanks so much for all your input. I love this forum, it's so nice to be able to chat to people that have actually been through the process already and can give an honest opinion ?
  16. Hi @Kit i guess I was just concerned about the higher risk for capsular contracture with overs, Compared to dual, the rippling and also the fact that overs can look more "fake" than natural.
  17. Hi ladies, I'm booked to have surgery with Dr Kollias in October and he has recommended 450cc round high profile over the muscle (subfascial) Has anyone recently had surgery with Dr Kollias and had subfascial/overs?? Never considered overs and concerned about the after effects? any help would be appreciated thanks in advance ?
  18. Hi ya! Like yourself I have been on this forum for a lil while now waiting for the right time to have my surgery and I finally had my consultation today ? Im based Adelaide and had my consult with Dr Kollias today, he was lovely. He recommended Mentor smooth round, high profile, on top of muscle 450cc. I'm 5'4 and 71kg. im booking my surgery tomorrow for 26th Oct. ? Finally happening! look forward to following your journey
  19. Thanks so much @JD* I have two children too so it definitely would be more practical to have the surgery here in Adelaide. I will definitely love to stay in contact and ask a few questions. I will PM you as they come to me lol ? Thanks so much @I HaveBoobs
  20. Hi everyone, iv been researching a lot about having implants in Adelaide but unable to find much information or before and after pics. Iv found a lot of people recommend either Dr Kollias or Dr Cooter. Has anyone had recent implants with either of the surgeons above or booked in this year?? My other option was to fly to Sydney to have surgery with Dr Tavakoli (his work looks amazing!!!) but it will cost $14K plus travel, accommodation and then 3 follow up appointments that I would need to fly back for. So gets quite pricey. Obviously more practical and cost effective to get done in Adelaide but it’s so hard when there is nothing to go on. I wish there were more info on Adelaide surgeons please help!! Thanks
  21. Thank you so much @cheetah. Really appreciate your feedback, definitely helps when you have no idea where to start.. lol ?
  22. Hi ya @maram! Thanks so much for the reply ? It's great to hear from someone whom has visited both Surgeons recently. Do you mind if I ask who you ended up booking with and what size and type? Also your stats?? You can inbox if you prefer, I'd love to follow your progress if you wouldn't mind?? ? Thanks, MM
  23. Thanks @Boobies4LYF @Postgastricsleeze and @ayesha79 really appreciate your feedback! I'm assuming that anything above 500cc will be big enough. I'm currently large A to Small B cup and had a baby recently so not as perky after breastfeeding. Hopefully I can find an Adelaide Surgeons that is willing to do 500c coz from what Iv heard, most Surgeons are a bit on the conservative side and most girls wish they went bigger! My consult isn't until August, so plenty of time to procrastinate.. lol ? MM
  24. Hi ya @cheetah thanks for the reply! Yes Iv spoken to a couple of girls now who have said the same thing, he is conservative! Can I ask how many cc you went and what size cup you are now compared to your initial stats? Thanks in advance, MM
  25. Just after people's opinion on round or teardrop and an idea of size? im 175cm, 70kg Would like to go quite large but wondering what size others had around the same stats Thanks, MM
