  1. My upper back pain was the WORST after my surgery! It was constant and just awful. I think it settled around week 3 or 4. Doing lots of stretches including pec stretches helped. I think it’s just because your back isn’t used to carrying weight on the front.
  2. I am glad that you will write a review @Stemschicky. I think it is so important that both the public and the surgeon themselves get access to honest feedback. Have you considered putting in a formal complaint regarding your poor outcome and subsequent treatment by the clinic? I also think that this is important as it means that they can’t just ‘brush you under the rug’ and ignore the situation. Especially as you don’t feel confident to return there.
  3. I got a fitting at 6 weeks and spent lots of money on beautiful bras but unfortunately they didn’t fit and felt uncomfortable as I dropped and fluffed further. I’d get a fitting at 6 weeks but maybe not buy too many bras (I know it’s very tempting!!) because that may not be your final size. My breasts are still changing subtlety at 6 month post op!
  4. That’s so strange that it appeared to rotate and then went back again! Especially at 12 months post op. I thought anatomicals kind of adhered to the tissue around them (due to the texture) and therefore didn’t move around much. Does it feel completely back to normal now?
  5. Hi @elleg, I’m sorry to hear you are having problems 😞 I am curious to know if there is anything you feel contributed to the recent changes in your breast positioning? I had the same surgeon as you and I’m keen to know if I need to be extra careful with anything!!
  6. @Stemschicky this is so disappointing to hear. I have the same surgeon as you and he definitely said to me verbally that if anything went wrong it would be fixed at minimal cost to me. I am so sorry you are going through this. Very good advice to get the surgeon’s revision policy in writing!
  7. I had my BA 5 months ago, 375cc below the muscle, Dr Sam Cunneen. I have a pretty good pain threshold (had 2 kids naturally without drugs). I had no nausea and minimal pain for the first few days, more like discomfort and tightness. I could move my arms pretty well. When the bruising and swelling came out on Day 3 it was more painful, not so much on the boobs but all the way around the ribs. Then I had severe constant back pain in the thoracic area, I think from my body adjusting to the weight change on my chest. The back pain was awful as nothing relieved it but I think by the 3 week mark it was starting to ease. The process was a little challenging but definitely worth it!
  8. Good luck today @JD*!!! Thinking of you x
  9. I could shower from the day after surgery and had no restrictions regarding arm movement so I washed my hair on day 2 or 3 can’t remember exactly! I was a bit stiff but had no trouble doing it. Using the hairdryer was tricky though. Ask your surgeon for his specific recommendations on washing and arm movements but I believe that most favour an active recovery 😊
  10. Hi 👋🏼 I’m 3 months post-op now and very happy having been completely flat before (after breast feeding 2 kids for 2 yrs each). Its amazing to have boobs! Work is great too at the moment, I just bought a business and it’s so nice to be working for myself. Last day of school today so have the kids on holidays for 2 weeks, it’s going to be intense! They are 6.5 and 4.
  11. My boobs were really sore to touch for the first 3 weeks but I could hug my kids properly from 2 weeks. My 3yo is very physical so I wasn’t comfortable to hug him properly before 2 weeks. My 6yo understood to be gentle so she was fine to have gentle hugs after about a week.
  12. I don’t even notice mine at all when I’m lying on my back now (I’m 7 weeks post op). They are still firm in general but definitely not hard. They are softening up more every week.
  13. For me, I was struggling until exactly 3 weeks post op. The first 2 weeks it was the swelling and boob area that was bothersome and the 3rd week it was horrible middle back pain!! After 3 weeks I felt so much better but had tightness and mild pain for another week after that. I know that by 5 weeks I was feeling great! I hear you, it felt like it took so long to feel good again! Are you week 4 now? Thanks 😊 they have dropped and fluffed sooo much already! Here is a pic of 2 weeks vs 5 weeks and they are even better now at 6 weeks, just can’t be bothered doing another collage 😂😂
  14. Thanks! I love mine at 6 weeks regardless but would be cool to be able to squish them together in the months to come
