  1. Oh no hun that’s terrible! They will reasses the wound once the infection has cleared up. How long is the “hole”? Hoping for quick recovery!! Yes
  2. They look ahmazing!!!! go for it!!!
  3. Oh Nic, they look better already! Lightening can’t strike twice so I’m sure you will have a smooth recovery this time around. Enjoy resting up if you can and looking forward to this all being behind you in a few weeks when you will be rocking that bikini at the beach! Xxx
  4. Oh no hun! How devastating! Wishing you the speediest of recoveries! Hang in there xx
  5. Hang in there. It’s funny as we all feel we should bounce back quicker than we do as we are all pretty active people! Rest up while you can, as others have said, it’s still early and your surgery was significant. It took ages for my body to metabolise the drugs too. I looked pregnant for s solid 10 days! We are all so different in the end xx
  6. Hi @GlissmI’m starting to move around to the boobs looking good close together- I’ve noticed a couple of older women with them closer, they look softer and less bolt on, so to me, they look younger. I do love my boobs, so glad I got it done, should have done it 5 years ago rather than over think things as my daughter is fine with it and my sons haven’t noticed (not that they commenting or asking hubby about anyway)! i am so hoping you get progress soon! Would be ***** to go through this and then still have to have a revision- crossing everything they behave for you!!
  7. @Nic#460cc your girls look great! Your Left does look like it’s starting to drop ? glad the endone is keeping your comfy! Are you back st work? @Glissmyou must be beside yourself! I know I would be! Your PS did say it will take some time tho, and others on here have said the same...try and keep positive? Must be so hard. I would be stressing too so I get it! im doing well. I love them! Think they might be bit close together but hubby says I’m picky and doesn’t understand why took close together isn’t good as he thinks they are perfect! That’s s relief tho I guess too as was worried they would feel n look fake but they def don’t!!
  8. That’s so interesting @Glissm! I haven’t told anyone as don’t want the judgement and also didn’t want them talking me out of it- I discussed it with 2 close gf 6 years ago and they told me I needed to embrace my post baby body so I felt guilty that I wasn’t doing that! It’s all so fraught! I think my other close gf will see/notice come summer tho! ?
  9. Oh no @Glissmthat strap sounds s h I t ? ? ? lets hope the right boob falls into line quick sticks!! I would hate the set back too but least they onto it pronto and sounds routine-ish to correct- just a massive pain to you ? yes maybe a qrt will be ok. I will ask PS n see what they say. I get to sleep on my side tonight! Yay! Hope it helps with my exhaustion from this cold now too! boob pain def worse with movement/brushing teeth etc. does feel like s bubble but not squelchy- lets just hope that’s what it is- might go on a search! As an aside qn- have you told ppl you got a BA? Only my hubby and daughter knows...
  10. Following with you @Glissm- no device but hopefully someone here does! Xx
  11. Oh no @Glissm! Feel free to send me a pic ? I’m sure your PS has dealt with this before- I was told too I had some chest assymetry when my Ps Was measuring me ahead of op. How weird was it to see yourself on vid??? im still getting that yukky movement feeling bottom of my right boob. Not as painful tho so hoping it’s just going to get better. I took a pic today and couldn’t really see much difference from last week. They feel like full boobs to me so not sure if that will change?? ta for advice about netball. It’s not that important to me but I would love to play even just for a qrt!
  12. Ha @Glissm! I was so impressed with some of the changes over time! Incredible!! Wonder how mine will change... thats interesting about fluid hey. I guess I thought it would be gone by now. My boobs tender to touch. Not enjoying sleeping on my back but yes 6 weeks seems to be magic number. qn- I’m in a netball grand final - 4 days short of 6wpo- would u play or not?!!
  13. Hi girls! So glad you’re both doing well @Glissmand @simply_me! i called nurse today about my localised pain/movement feeling and she said most likely fluid that will eventually be absorbed. Said I might hear squelching/bubble noises too (I’m not) I forgot to ask if I can sleep on my side yet- I have a cold and desperate to roll over! What have you been told? im enjoying looking at the D n F thread- you guys looked??
  14. Love this thread! Would love more recent pics as I’m not even 3wpo (overs) and love seeing how everyone’s change over time! Thanks to everyone whose posted! ??
  15. How are our post op girls going? @Glissm @simply_me? ive still got this funny movement type feeling in my right boob. Going to call for peace of mind tmw. It’s slightly painful but more weird feeling. My left boob feels completely normal. It was a smaller implant so maybe that’s why, plus I’m right hazarded. I think I’m just anxious to be feeling like I haven’t had surgery, when I actually have (!) so need to be patient. Not even 3wpo yet...! I do feel “jiggling” sometimes on my right when I brush my teeeh...paranoid that’s too early!! Gosh I sound psycho! ? hope you’re all doing well xx
  16. Hi @cheetah, thanks for the reply! I’m 2wpo now! Saw Dr Cooter- subfascial anatomicals-345/390 to correct assymetry! Feel like they are a good size for my shape- I feel like it’s been corrective/restorative surgery. Should have done years ago!
  17. @simply_me I’ve been juggling with this too. I feel they need more support so went tighter but it left indentations too! I think it’s mesnt to be firm but comfy. U might just want to loosen at night but firmer during day/active??
  18. Hi @Nic#460cc! I’m happy to share a pic- send me a PM? I was a deflated B- prob an A...think I’m DD at the moment. Was able to take dressings off today and started applying a scar cream PS sent home. Scar is longer than I imagined but tucked right under fold. Im having still wound pain, especially on right side. Was quite intense this am. The morning boob has subsided tho which is good. I’m also experiencing this weird feeling of noticing a bag strap draped over my shoulder and touching my breast- usually, with all the padding, I wouldn’t have felt anything!! I’m also on high beam all the time too- again, usually the padding hides it! ?? hope everyone else going well!
  19. Hi @MellieMoo! I didn’t go with Dr Kollias in the end but had a consult where he recommended overs to me too. The surgeon I did go with also recommended overs (just different implant type) but u had read as long as you have greater than 2cm of breast tissue, That’s sufficient to cover them. I had 3.5. Dr K didn’t measure me specifically, just did a pinch test. I’ve got overs - 2wpo and can’t see the outline. I think if u can have them u should, I really wanted to avoid breast animation, plus wanted a smoother recovery. Initially post op it’s not been great but overs will have you returning to your preop lifestyle quicker. If you’re concerned you should get a second opinion. I was booked in with Dr K but cancelled after a second opinion but not due to anything he said or recommended. There are others that have used him on here and love him too and I think you will get great care and great outcome with him as equal to what any other reputable PS. He is also about $2k cheaper than PS I saw (dr cooter). Good luck. Pm me of you have any qns! ?
  20. @simply_me I read other girls walking after a week so thought I would go for it. Don’t feel like there’s much movement of boobs with the bra, but helps with my mental wellbeing! I can’t really not work, trying to make adaptations which are helping- used my left arm more today do that’s something! How are you feeling today? I binged Working Mums on Netflix- 2 seasons- u might like it if that’s your lifestyle! Definitely relatable!
  21. Hi girls! @simply_meI was so sick and had same clammy stuff. I was on antibiotics for 10 days so that wound have impacted it. I reckon I’ve put weight on too. My stomach is still so bloated but it is improving. I am only walking 6kn/hr on treadmill so nothing strenuous- weather too rubbish to go outside- so I’m figuring that’s ok. I think my job may be mire physical too as I am noticing pain in right side last 2 days- I’m tight handed so figured that makes sense. And just so washed out! I’m officially 2wpo tmw so feeling better each day. I’m glad I got them done in winter- can recover under layers!
  22. Thanh’s @Kit! Was bit sore and just tired today. Also feel like there is a small part of my boob that feels weird from the inside. Like a fluttery or pocket kind of feeling. Could be stitches?? Did you get weird sensations? Nothing looks unusual to indirect them so trying not to worry! how are our post op girls going today?! ???
  23. This is interesting! I’m in some American compression bra- says 36d on it- nurse says too that don’t really worry about the size. Mine has 4 rows of hooks to bring in as swelling goes down. If anything I’m hoping mine go a bit smaller! My PS did warn me that it was a fine line between the size I probably wanted and “filling “ the envelope! I didnt want mine over-stuffed ?
  24. @Glissmsounds like you are doing so well! I was sick/bloated gross for a full week. I feel good now that I’m back on treadmill walking it off and getting some increased movement each day. First day out today and nooone noticed although I think one guy was looking at them but I could be just paranoid! Supper cold her at the moment so I have heaps of layers on!! thanks for letting me know about your sleeping instructions @Kit- will persist on bank but longer. Read forums and lots of different advice. As I’m sub facial I wonder if I need to be more careful until scar tissue forms to hold them in.... im back to work tmw, first client cancelled so least a slower start! Hopefully I’m not too exhausted or sore by the end of the day!!! sleep well! ?
