    Hi Cosmetic, thanks for your post.  Do you know of anyone personally? or did you read something on another site?  I need as much infomation as possible and I'm hoping you could expand on this.

    Hi

    Not sure how this popped up but I can confirm I did not have a good experience with Cosmos.  Really sloppy work! Careless! 


  2. This is an interesting topic.

    I decided to weigh myself now over a year since lipo and i gained 4kg!! Im shocked. Ivd not eaten differently and i eork out a lot. Yes ive gained muscle but surrly not 4kg weight gain. My vlothes still fit too! Im so confused! Anyone er else?? Mskes me think perhaps the body really fights to gain weight after lipo or sonething?? 

    Before lipo i was 61kg

    After lipo 58kg

    Now 62kg

    Holy cow!!

    So it has been almost four years since my first breast augmentation with Dr David Chin from Advanced Plastic Surgery in Brisbane. I was initially (mostly) satisfied with the results, but had my suspicions about uneven pockets - and the remaining asymmetry. As they’ve settled over the years, I’ve noticed them looking more and more uneven, and very wide set. 

    I’ve also had a lot of problems with breast animation while training, and discomfort with a ‘pulling/tugging’ sensation, particularly in my left breast. I  finally decided to take the plunge and look into revision. Unfortunately, having moved to the UAE, I was unable to consult with Dr Chin again - but I doubt he would have been easy to convince to perform a revision, as when I brought up my concerns initially after surgery, he dismissed them quickly, and showed me images of my ‘befores’ - saying that it was an improvement. I decided to speak to a surgeon here instead. 

    The surgeon here advised me to get an MRI, as she suspected a capsular contracture, but after viewing the images it showed the pockets cut very uneven (one an inch and a half higher than the other), and too small for the implants - causing rippling, and she says likely the discomfort and animation, too. 

    I decided to also look into options for surgery in Thailand, as I’ve read a lot of ladies have had better luck with their revisions there, and am in the process of booking with Dr Sanguan at PPSI around mid-August (in just a few weeks). It works out around the same price for me and my family to travel to Thailand and have a break away together, as well as get the surgery done, so it seemed like a feasible option. Plus, I’ve read excellent reviews about Dr Sanguan, and see that he is the head of the Plastic Surgery Hospital there. 

    I feel positive about the results, and my husband was able to get some leave, so him and daughter will join me around 2-3 days after the surgery, and we can enjoy a little time together then, but I am just a little nervous about traveling there alone for the surgery and being away from my family for those few days until they arrive. 

    If anyone is traveling to Phuket at the same time, or if anyone has any positive experiences to share about their surgery in Thailand, I’d love to hear from you . 

    Anyway, I’ll update progress in this thread, and it might help someone else in the future, too 😊

    I've seen another very bad surgery from Dr Chin. I wish you good luck with your revision!

    A gf of mine saw Lanzer and the results are really good. He did a great job and she got whole body including double chin for 10k. I was going to go in for secondary lipo (I had an awesome Lipo Job done in Sydney years prior) but I wasn’t keen after our joint consult. 

    A few things to note: 

    - apparently nurses do most of the work with Lanzer allegedly popping in every now and again. This is second hand info but apparently that’s why it’s so cheap. 

    - your initial consult will be with his creepy assistant. He made me so uncomfortable and was the reason I didn’t go ahead. No medical quals yet asked to see what areas I wanted to get worked on. I politely declined and stayed fully dressed. 

    - you’ll be a day clinic which didn’t impress me. When I picked up my friend, she was dehydrated, and not in a great way. Take a friend who knows Lipo, is strong enough to demand you’re hydrated & ok before leaving, and you’ll be fine. 

    - the Lipo is extremely aggressive. She had parts of her body she couldn’t feel for ages. I never had this- and am not a medical professional so don’t know the reason. She looks great though. 

    Having said all that, he is extremely cost effective and the results are great. Hope this has 

    please be careful with this guy.  I know of someone who was very botched by Daniel Lanzer. I am only writing this in the hope it may help someone.

    I am looking into liposuction of the banana rolls (under the bum around up into the hip) and thighs.

    I was very interested in Dr T & Dr M in Sydney however one never got back to me and one only offers lipo with other surgery (BA).

     

    Reviews of Dr Lanzer all comment on his bedside mannor. I'm not phased by a blunt dr. I am more interested in the quality of work.

     

    Has anyone had recent experience with Dr Lanzer and can detail if they are happy with the end results? 

    I am happy with his prices over phone consultation but really want to be set on the 'after' stories. 

    Thank you in advance! 

    Please be careful

    Hi Amy

    Who was your lipo surgeon in Sydney?


  6. Ok i need to go and see Dr Widdowson. He did your TT right? I have very little loose skin and been told i cant have full TT. Im also athletic and chose lipo but unfortunately i was left with a small dent that im hoping can get fixed with a mini TT which seems to be what you had.. i also have some muscle separation. Im just so confused with all the choice of surgeons..!

    Totally agree @Maria80 we all need to make informed choices and do our research. However, I do believe in evidence based research and not  anecdotal stories. At this point in time there is no medical evidence supporting the notion of implant illness. 

    If you look a bit further there are studies to support this and doctors who very much believe in it. However I wont post links etc here as I'm worried about getting into trouble. In fact I'm going to leave this site now.  All the best

    I agree with @LaurenT your breast appears that it may be tuberous - again I am no expert, but I would strongly recommend you have a consultation with a plastic surgeon for further advice (and definitely not a cosmetic surgeon - they have nowhere near the expertise, nor are they accredited). Silicone is preferable to saline and is quite safe and feels far more natural than saline.

    The lady above @Maria80 warns everyone about implant illness - however, in spite of a number of social media posts on the topic, there is no actual scientific evidence in support of that. There are small risks and again you really need to speak with an accredited and qualified plastic surgeon as they can discuss your individual case, your best options and how much it will cost you.

    Here's the link on this forum for more information on tuberous breasts https://cosmeticjourney.com/forum/forum/85-tuberous-breast-correction/

    Hi

    No need to be like that. All i said was for her to do her own research. Not to believein it. At least if she does her own research she can make an informed decision. All the best 


  9. For boobs I would only ever go with a PS butfor lipo I would be fine using an experienced CS as the best in the industry for lipo are iften CS not PS. I read every review I can find and look at phitos etc but unfortunately so many fake reviews these days. I would love it if a friend recommend soneone but I seem to know no one whos done plastic surgery haha.. so for me it's the reviews, the experience in that particular procedure, pictures and the feel I get at the consultation. Because at the end of the day I need tp be confident that my surgeon will be there for aftercare or complications as well and not only take my.money and leave me


  10. I don't know about thailand sorry but im the same, def don't want implants and want either FAt grafting or only lift (but not implants). Australia is really behind with this..in the US, europe and Asia this has been done for about 20 years successfully. You will find the best surgeons in the US and dr Bednar in NC will charge around 10000USD I believe. He does free skype consultations if you book through realself

    @Maria80 i am not disputing anything about fat grafting to the breasts, I am actually having this procedure done as part of my reaugmentation. 
    What i was merely trying to point out is that neither claims have been backed up by scientific evidence yet you choose to believe one claim over the other. 
    Breast implants are also used on cancer patients as part of their reconstruction - to apply your logic to the argument, if breast implants made women sick, why on earth would they use them in cancer patient???

    FYI, not everyone who has them removed will be left with empty saggy bags of skin, I certainly am not.

    - Yes, thats true! implants are also used on breast cancer patients. Very true. And yes, I agree with what you are saying.

    - In regards to one of the other comments. FT is only done in modest amounts bc more of the fat will survive that way. That is why you can not get say 3 cup sizes increase in one session

    - I guess I believe it because I have seen so many women who are very sick. I can't believe it would just be all in their head. surely.

    - You are lucky you arent left with empty bags then. Ive seen so many pictures of women who remove their implants and are looking very disformed. I guess it depends on the person, their body etc for sure. All the best to you
     

    Please anyone who is considering implants, look up some of the BII groups on FB. Do your research at least and then decide! all the best

    Keep in mind that FT is not a one off procedure as 50% loss of volume occurs .

    Next month i will have my 3de procedure for  that reason.

    That depends on each and every person and surgeon. You may loose 50% or you may loose a ot less, I have seen women who have retained 70% or more.  I guess for me I am happy with 0.5 to 1 cup size increase. So nothing very dramatic. All the best.

    im not disputing that fat grafting is and has been done to the beast, in fact, it is part of my reconstructive operative plan along with ADM. Im simply saying that fat transfer to the breasts has been claimed to have a link with cancer.
    Most surgeons who perfom fat grafting to the breast here will only do so subdermal and not into the breast pocket itself and usually only modest amounts are transferred.
    I doubt fat transfer as a stand alone breast augmentation technique will ever replace implants as there is too many variables, it is time consuming and does not always have a high success rate.

    Anyway, I digress. There is no scientifically proven connection between breast implants and autoimmune disease or breast implant related illness.

     

    I also distress, theres no scientifically proven connection between FT and breast cancer. Look into it. Why on earth would FT have been used on breast cancer patients for ages to fix their breast, if it would cause them more cancer. 

    Not everyone will get sick from implants.. but some will. I guess depends if you want to take the risk or not. Plus the ongoing cost of replacing them, plus risk of rupture, flipping etc etc. And once you DO decide to get rid of them, you are left with empty bags of skin.

    I have done enough research myself to know breast implant illness does happen, not to mention the close friends I know who have suffered. But anyway. Not at all here to argue. Each to their own and some people willl be fine with implants. I could be one of them, but I don't want to find out. In the states FT is an extremely popular procedure nowdays.. i think more and more women will opt for this option plus you get wonderful results with the RIGHT surgeon, not as extreme as with the implants but a more natural look. Plus the added bonus of liposuction.

    Nagor breast implants

    fat grafting as a stand alone way to augment the breast has until recently been uninsurable by the medico insurane companies because of a supposed correlation between breast cancer and fat grafting the breast.
     

    This is an ever evolving space. Until recently, they did not know the correlation between textured implants and a significantly increased incidence of ALCL. Maybe one day they will find a proven correlation between breast implants and related illnesses but for now, it seems to be to me at least, as about as real as immunisations causing autism.

    its been done for 20 so years in other parts of the world. It is now insured in Australia as no correlation btw cancer and FT to breast.

    In fact, FT to breast has been done for a long time to breast cancer survivors as reconstructive surgery


  14. I know a lot of ladies who have had their implants removed because of Breast Implant Illness. It is real. Although some surgeons do not believe in it.. well implants make a lot of money ;)  honestly I believe they will be banned one day. go on BII group on Facebook.. if you want some info. Id never get implants. Thats just me. I am getting Fat transfer instead. And a lot of people on here will disagree with me because they don't want to believe it because we all want to look good
