  1. Dr Szalay review & Dr Cheng

    Hi, Week 4 is good thanks, just very sensitive. I think one side has dropped more than the other but I had one side a bit bigger to start off with so just waiting to see how it goes. Scars are still a bit red/pink but look like they are healing good. Yep, still feeling quite full on top and out there so I am hoping a bit of the upper fullness goes away (but not all of it ). x
  2. Dr Szalay review & Dr Cheng

    How exciting @Aqua85 ! I hope you have a great recovery. I am now 4wpo from Dr Cheng and the aftercare has been great, no drama at all ringing up and going in if you have any questions/concerns. Now hurry up the next few months so we see what the girls end up looking like, and just in time for Summer too. I bet you're looking fwd to your appt on Friday, I was like WOW 8-) x
  3. Feelings of regret

    Hi, I am not 100% but I think you should be wearing a supportive bra/crop for at least a few weeks (when I think of a bralette I think lacey and not supportive?). I received two post op surgical bras. But I also bought a two-pack from K-Mart (with the zip up the front) which have been great. I wear them 24/7. As for the pain/feelings I can not help. Mine do not feel like they move or could fall out. Also, keep being mindful of not over stretching and lifting arms above head etc be gentle on yourself, something which I need to do more of! Mine are dual plane, did you go over? I have no idea I am just wondering if overs move different to under. Hopefully some one might be able to help you more. But definitely don't feel embarrassed to contact the clinic again, that is what they are there for. x
  4. Implants and running

    Hi, I am now 4wpo too. I went for a 5km power walk Saturday and I was so tempted to break into a run as I am feeling good now but I had to remind myself I am still very much healing. I have also been going to the gym and doing the stationery bike but that is about it until I get clearance. I can't wait until I get sized, I am sure it will be a lovely surprise to know what I am now :-) I am still wearing all my boring post op bra's 24/7 so looking fwd to buying some sports bra's/crops and something a bit more exciting x
  5. Feelings of regret

    Hi @Mochi, I hope you are feeling a bit better today. I just wanted to say hang in there and it should get better soon. It is still very early days and it is a real shock to the body/mind the first two weeks. And when you are limited in what you can do and how you move and how you feel you really wish you were how you were before surgery. The first two weeks were hard for me, I think I had post op blues (if that is a thing?). When I thought about my boobs all I could think of were these foreign things which I could not remove and I craved my independence and mobility I had prior to surgery. I visited my GP 2wpo to get more sick leave and I almost burst into tears as I felt down and questioned what I did. I am nearly 4wpo now and the blues have definitely lifted and I am actually feeling joy and a bit more confidence with my boobs when I check myself out in the mirror. I also feel so much better now I am moving a lot more freely and not so reliant on other people. xx
  6. Boobs in July 😆

    Hi all, I hope everyone has been recovering well. All good here, nearly 4 wpo and in general I am feeling pretty good and probably doing more than I should be. Definitely not any pain but maybe it is just sensitivity, the girls just don't feel 100%. Still a patch of numbness on the lower boobs. The muscle is slowly stretching, initially I couldn't shave under my arms properly as the muscle was so tight but shaving is getting easier as the underarm opens up. The incisions ache a bit on waking up and I am still only sleeping on my back which has been quite easy considering I was a side/tummy sleeper. My boobs still look stuck on/tight I guess so I am really looking forward to them softening up and doing this D&F that the girls talk about :-) All the best x PS: Only tried bathers on for the first time last night and a pair that did not fit me up top are now a perfect fit, looking forward to Summer ;-)

    Yay @BunnyHop :-) Glad the girls are looking good. I hope you heal well.

    Hello everyone, I hope everyone is going good. Thanks Lovejugs for the encouraging words. I had my nurse check up and she seemed happy enough and happy that anti-b's were started soon enough to stop anything further developing. But I have to go back in again next week for another check up and this time my PS will be there for him to have a look at it too. I have to leave that side untaped now but still taping my good side. Sorry I didn't mean to compare (guess it's hard not to on a site like this), yours looked good and were sitting where I hope mine will one day. At the moment I feel like I could eat my dinner off mine, haha. But yes time will tell!! x Hello everyone, I hope everyone is going good. Thanks Lovejugs for the encouraging words.

I guess you know what you are in for this time, which is probably a good thing, haha. I hope you are happy with the size :-) size was really tricky for me but I think I will be happy when everything settles. x

    Hi everyone, @lovejugs I am glad to hear you are feeling good at 5dpo. Did you get anatomicals, just wondering? As mine are sitting really high up on my chest compared to your photos :-) 11 dpo today. Yesterday was my first tape change by myself so my first time getting to look at my incisions. My right side looked normal but my left side did not look too great so I phoned up the clinic and emailed through some photos. I spoke to the nurse who phoned me back and they were going to get me to come in for a check up that afternoon and then it sounded like they were going to let me go through the weekend as I was in no pain and there was no redness as such (the incision looks a bit 'angry' and gapey) but the nurse got my PS to look over my photos. So as a precaution they told me to get my repeat for antibiotics and being a Friday as well, so I am now on another round of them. I have an appt Tues for the nurse to check the incision site. I am glad I am back on them as later that night it felt a bit of burning which has gone and today I had the slightest of temps but it has gone back down. Gah, I was not expecting that as I am really clean so not sure how the infection (if it is one) started and the other side is fine?? Otherwise everything is starting to feel better, tightness in the chest is gone, any discomfort seemed really minimal/to none today. My shower felt so much better today, normally my boobs feel like they are about to contract and burst. Still having trouble trying to shave under my arms, maybe I need to do more exercises/arm movements to loosen that muscle/ligament part up. I hope everyone else is doing better than me, haha x

    Welcome @sweet_suga! Good thing for you I guess is you can read what we are all going through and get a bit of a heads up on what to expect :-) How are you @lovejugs? I got a bottle of high potency vit C and I am taking liquid Collagen (been taking that one for some time) hopefully they aid my incision site and healing??? 1 week po here and I am a tiny bit sore under the underarms/into the chest region area. The tightness has definitely settled and breathing is a lot less laboured. I went for a small walk yesterday and definitely not walking as fast as I use to and got fatigued quite easily. My left boob squelches. If I move my arm in a certain way you can hear the fluid squelch sometimes. I have read others have had that so I am not too concerned, I just hope the fluid goes away soon. Otherwise feeling so much better at 1 week po but definitely not at the stage where they feel like a part of me. xx
  11. Hi @iDream_of_CeeCees, Good luck with your decision! I would definitely ask to go in and try on sizes again, take photos on your phone from different angles and of the different sizes. I know every PS will be slightly different. But I went in twice to try on sizes. And the assistant there, who was so helpful, said if I am having any concerns over sizes I could let them know and come in and try on again and even if my PS was not there she would assist me. I had surgery on the Tuesday and I had up until the Friday before to change my mind on my size. Although my PS did say he had some in storage as well. x

    Hi everyone, I think day 4 has probably been the worst for me, not pain, just the tightness and stiffness, but feeling better again today, just a bit tight to breathe. And I am missing the freedom I had pre-op. I haven't taken Endone since day 2 or 3 and only at night as I thought it would help me sleep, nope. And I use pandadol if needed. I am happy with the size but I know it is swelling as well so the size will go down somewhat but hopefully not too much, I am really looking fwd for them to soften. My bloating has started to go down, yay. Just feeling really lazy with my lack of activity. Good luck for tomorrow @lovejugs x Looking great @Jenny1002 they look like they coming along nicely. 5 dpo here and yes my under breast part is still numb too. Haha, walking like a penguin, yeah I guess you wouldn't want to keep knocking them, ouch. No side boob here so I get outta that one :-) I hope your recovery keeps going great!
  13. Boobs in July 😆

    Finally got around to my photos before my shower. But omg, I was so happy to put my post-op bra back on. They felt so tight and stiff, like they were about to burst, without the support of the bra!
  14. Boobs in July 😆

    Well I had my post-op appt this morning and had my big reveal. Everyone there was very happy that I was so spritely and coping with the surgery so well, others apparently are not as lucky. ....Well I am pretty happy so far, they don't look as bad as I thought they were going to, actually I couldn't stop looking at them, lol. Some bruising and a lot of fluid has tracked down to my abdomen which makes me feel a bit queasy (just knowing it is all there). You can see the pockets of fluid there and jiggle it, ugh. But it is all normal and the body will do its thing and get rid of it. I got one post-op bra and they gave me another type of bra as well. Come the weekend I can go to sleeping flat. I have to change my tapes once a week until 6 weeks, and I can now shower instead of sponge bath. I haven't taken any photos yet as it is too bloody cold here in Brisbane, of all places. But I will get around to putting some before/afters up. Good luck to everyone that has surgery coming up xx

    All the best for today @Bonny6! Although you would be in recovery right now. Let us know how you went when you are up to it :-) x
