    sabP got a reaction from McEva in Perth ladies! Watts/Connell/Cunneen....HELP!   
    Hey @Bec217 I started walking from day one, slowly!! I went back to running at week 6 when I was able to wear a really good supportive sports bra. The gym I left for a while longer to make sure I was fully healed. Dancing also at 6 weeks.  I recovered pretty well, but you do have to give yourself time to heal and pace yourself and follow the instructions of your surgeon as they all give different advice

    If you have the recalled textured allergen natrelle implants, there is no action needed to be taken apart from looking out for ALCL symptoms. I believe they only have been recalled from further surgeries if that makes sense.

    @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.

    Hey @RKN Dr Kollias is highly recommended. Please don't go on cost, this is major surgery and you want the absolute best. Even if it means saving for a bit longer... Plastic surgery is not something your should skimp on. xo

    sabP reacted to Elena Siberia in Breast is too low / uneven nipples / - revision?   
    I'm sorry to hear you had to go through so many surgeries. I hope you are happy with the result now.. 
    I don't want to do a lift as I don't want to touch my nipples. That's why tightening the pockets seems like a perfect option for me. And I guess since dr Dona has been understanding about my issue and offered a revision with a big discount that's something to consider.. However one of my friends said that if he messed it up once he will do it again and suggests I go to a different specialist. That would cost me as a full new surgery though
    You are right, the breasts are positioned quite low because I wanted a natural look. To be honest with you once it's been done I realised that it might have not been the best approach as sometimes I feel as if my breasts look saggy not to mention the nipple issue. Anyways, that's why I feel like lifting them higher up would be a great solution for me as it would tackle 2 issues at the same time. 
    As for the breast lift, I was told I didn't need one and I was warned about the nipples asymmetry. I just didn't expect one of my nipples to be so high up it's almost like it's not a part of the boob.. Because the original asymmetry was extremely minor. I definitely believe that it should have been predicted by the surgeon as I can't know what outcome I will have exactly.

    sabP got a reaction from Cupcake85 in Breast is too low / uneven nipples / - revision?   
    My surgeon discussed my nipples prior to surgery as they were low. He talked about the position of the implants (anatomical) and the pockets and how he would position them so that the nipples were more central, which they are.
    Your breasts seem to be positioned quite low, which seems to have 'flicked' the nipples upwards. Did your surgeon recommend a breast lift? I know you said you had nothing much to start with and nor did I, but sometimes even with smaller breasts, they may require a lift at the time of augmentation.
    That being said, Dr Dona is reputable and so a revision would be worth considering. Do any bra's have the same effect as when you hold your breasts up?
    Good luck with your decision and I hope it can be rectified xo

    sabP got a reaction from I HaveBoobs in Boob job, what to be careful for   
    Hey hun, you need to relax and just give yourself time to heal and recover. If you incision site is clean you will not have an infecttion, if you are concerned call your surgeon for an appointment. Usually you will have a follow-up around 7 days after surgery and they will check all is well.

    Capsular contracture is a risk that we all take. Just be aware of your breast health and deal with anything IF it comes up. Stop worrying yourself sick over nothing. Take care xo

    sabP reacted to Moderator in Help!!! Nicotine test before surgery   
    who is your surgeon?
    A lot of surgeons do a nicotine test before surgery particularly for procedures such as a mummy makeover. You run the risk of considerably compromising your surgery results as smoking can cause delayed wound healing, necrosis of the healing tissue etc.
    You definitely can quit smoking, believe me many of us have been through it ourselves. Would you consider hypnosis? I know some ,people who have had success with this method.
    I can tell you, once you make it to the two week mark, it will become much easier. I would even consider patches or NRT until the end of the month and then go cold turkey

    Good luck with your upcoming surgery @BethM The drop and fluff can take a while. What type of implants are you getting? Rounds/smooth usually D & F faster than anatomical implants. However, you should notice significant change from the 6 week mark (that's usually when it's best to go bra shopping!!) And they can continue to change for several months unti they settle into their final state  xo

    sabP reacted to I HaveBoobs in Rapid Recovery Technique   
    Hi @Rose2019 i would have to agree with the above comments, although i myself did have a pretty easy recovery i had full use of my arms right after surgery but had restrictions on lifting anything heavey , over reaching and driving , i had little to no pain and came out of the anesthetic very easily but some people are not so lucky,  while i didn't technically have rapid recovery my first 2-3 weeks were fairly  easy but i did take that time to rest and recover as like mentioned above it is major surgery.  You also mention you have little ones, you will have lifting restrictions even with a supposedly rapid recovery so picking up your little ones will be very hard for the first week at least so i reccomend you have someone who can help you for that first week.

    sabP reacted to CJ- in Extreme back pain and depression   
    @I HaveBoobs yes it was more upper back pain. I’ve never had a pinched nerve so maybe that was it. I’ve never really been hurt before in terms of broken bone or sprained ankles so I didn’t realise my pain threshold was so low. I told my sister who has kids that I was never giving birth even though I love kids but once the pain subsided I was like hmm maybe I could handle it... ? the memories of the pain fades when there’s something to enjoy after. I’m loving my new boobies ?

    Hey @CJ I returned to work at the 3 week mark, but my job does not include heavy lifting. Can you ask your manager to have lighter duties for a couple more weeks? You can say it's due to a short term medical condition. You can get your surgeon or gp to write a supportive med certificate without disclosing your BA xo

    sabP reacted to APerth in Perth ladies! Watts/Connell/Cunneen....HELP!   
    Hi ladies,
    I went with connell for breast implant replacement because mine was done overseas 4 years ago and it rotated. 6 days post op today and I opened my surgical bra for the first time because my body is still very sore from the abdominoplasty with muscle repair and looked in the mirror... I'm a happy girl.
    I was supposed to see Connell 4 years ago but went to South Korea instead. And then last year I shopped around seeing dr Cunneen as well. Dr Connell's experience won me over eventhough he doesn't have that flashy insta page to show off his work. If you want to see pics just send me a PM and I'll send you my 6 days post op pic.
    Initialy he suggested 330cc round microtextured implant in my right side for starter point because my vectra image showed that I'm 40cc asymmetric, and the he'd go from there wether to put smaller,same or larger implant in the left side. But during our last consult he asked me if I'd rather wake up too small or too big, I said too small. He then changed his plan and started with 240cc.
    My old implant was teardrop macro textured implant and even from day 1 I felt it didn't suit my body type and I never got the shape that I wanted. It ended up never fully drop because it rotated and didn't fill my already stretched pocket from breastfeeding 3 kids plus another last stretch after I got the implant with my 4th baby. 
    Very happy with dr Connell and his judgement and his taste. I trusted him fully and didn't even try sizer, I only said I want something natural to fill these pockets,nothing too big or extravagant, and most importantly I want a very nice shape. All the best for you and your upcoming surgery.
