    Rotation 😟

    This is most likely the route I will take too. From textured anatomicals to round smooth and a smaller size.

    Just saw your pics @elleg there is definitely a big difference between the 2 of them

    @elleg I don’t think anything is covered by Medicare or private health anymore, I think a lot of those things that were able to be claimed were dropped in Oct this year. I’ve searched high and low and a lot of private health now won’t insure for anything to do with cosmetic surgery unless it was medically needed. I don’t know if they class revisions as a medical thing or a cosmetic thing, hopefully someone who knows can fill us in? I’ve never been comfortable with mine, I think it due to their size, I have always had aches and pains, and I remember the feeling of the skin coming away which was painful, but was told it’s normal to have aches and pains after surgery so I didn’t worry too much about it, thinking it would all settle down.

    I won’t be going back now. The trust is completely gone. I would be so scared that I would end up botched again. Pretty sure @I HaveBoobs thinks hers may be rotating as well 😢

    I know! I think a lot of people who do have complications are too embarrassed to talk about it. I was so disappointed with how it ended up! This was my experience when I went to talk to him about a revision: When I went back to talk about it (was only a few of weeks ago) he said in his consult room that he would fix it and put smaller implants in at minimal cost (2 surgeries over 3 months to let the skin reattach to the sternum) when we went out to Jo he told her (actually he whispered to her because the waiting room was full) to give me a quote for the procedure. Jo said she would email it to me by the end of the week. The end of the week came and went so I emailed her and asked her if she had perhaps forgotten all about it and if she had managed to get the quote sorted. The reply and I quote was “No” that’s it, no Hi, no sorry nothing, just NO. I did eventually get the quote a few days later, and the only thing that was on it was the removal, which was still $1500 and had a Medicare number attached. When I asked about the rest of the procedure (reimplanting smaller implants) she sent me a photocopy of the pricing list that gets handed to you when you book your initial appt, so they want me to pay the full price for his mistake. I replied asking for her to please speak to Sam as that is not what was discussed while I was there and to clarify the pricing, I haven’t heard back yet and that was over A week ago. I hope you have more luck as you may not need new implants, just going in and putting it back to where it’s meant to be. May be an easier fix than mine!

    Oh no! I think we had the same surgeon too and I’m almost 12 months too and having issues (issues that were very obvious early on) and getting nowhere with him. I’ve booked in with Tony Connell instead. You are now the 3rd person this week that has developed issues 1 year Po with him!

    When I rang I could have got an Jan appt, so I don’t think the wait is too long, I only chose Feb as I have so much on with family coming over in Jan.

    I think that is a very good idea. I wish more people would talk about bad experiences as only hearing the good all of the time puts people into a false sense of security. I have read that 20-30% of surgeries need revision within 12 months, which is actually quite shocking.

    I have made a new album for those who may be concerned about Symmastia and what it looks like.

    I’ve made an appointment with Dr Connell for Feb next year, which really isn’t that far away now, I could have had a January appt but I want to get past all the new year madness before I even think about starting this journey again.

    From everything I’ve read Tony Connell is the best option for revision in Perth

    Tony Connell reviews

    @BunnyHop wow! The treatment you have received from Tony in regards to revision is miles apart from what I have just had to deal with (symmastia with another Perth surgeon). You’ve just convinced me to pick up the phone and make that appointment.

    Just an update: I have still had no reply. I don’t feel I should have to keep asking for clarification on the quotes and I feel this is a tactic on their part for us not to bother. The disappointment is real! So my options are now going with the consummate professionals which I wish I had done in the first place! Im looking at now most likely twice to three times the amount of money that I “thought” I would be paying for this. Any suggestions on Revision specialists, from research the only surgeon I should even consider in Perth is Tony Connel or spend the money and travel to see Dr Tav in Sydney! Does anyone here have any experience with Dr Tony Connel?

    I would also like to know, I need to have it fixed and figured I would go with the best there is this time
