  1. @MellieMoo my eldest is 8 and to be honest she hasnt mentioned anything lol so i dont really have advice, when i went to hospital i got her watched so she didnt no where i went and when i didnt come home her dad just told her i was having a break, i dont no if she hasnt noticed or just hasnt felt comfortable asking questions lol.. id say just tell your daughter what ever your comfortable with, if u dont mind her knowing just tell her your getting your boobs fixed haha if u prefer her not to no then u could probably tell her anything and she will believe it, if she says your boobs are bigger just act shocked and agree oh wow your right they do look bigger maybe its my magic bra haha nah i duno i didnt want my daughter to no for 2 reasons, one being there were certain people i didnt want to no like my inlaws as they wouldnt understand or be ok with it due to being very relgious people and i didnt want her to be put in a position to lie or feel like she has to hide things and the other because i didnt want to promote this type of thing i dont want her to feel like you have to alter your body, not saying id be against it if she ever wanted to do the same thing one day just dont want the idea stemming from me hahaha.
  2. @Sandy_ thats awesome your very welcome good luck with it all your in great hands and im sure you will not be disappointed ?
  3. @Sandy_ this isnt really relivent to your question just wondering how your consult went and what you thought of dr kollias?
  4. @Sandy_ haha yeah thats understandable i felt bit nervous only having word of mouth to go by but once i met him i felt so much more at ease and im glad i went with him no regrets at all. This is the number to his office 0882150123
  5. @Sandy_ I dont have any knowledge on Dr Lam but I am in Adelaide myself and recently had my BA done by Dr Kollias, you will not find alot about him online he doesnt promote his work and his main focus is on cancer patients, he gets plenty of business just through word of mouth other people recommending him etc but if you search his name on this forum there are lots of girls who have gone through him and recommend him, which is how i discovered him too. His price is very competitive for a plastic surgeon and his work is truely amazing i couldnt be happier with my results. If you are set on Dr Lam though thats completely fine just thought id let you know about him as another option if you decide to look at others ?
  6. @I HaveBoobs i could be completely wrong here but isnt that how capsular contraction is caused when scar tissue is formed in or around the capsule?
  7. @Glissm yeah i could imagine that would be fustrating but i guess on bright side we both still in the very early stages of our journey with so many more changes to come over the months its hard to be patient but as i keep reading its a long process lol, my fingers are crossed for you that your stubborn side doesnt stay that way for too much longer and starts dropping soon.
  8. @Glissm thanks lol yeah ive been reading same things.. mine were quite firmish with slight softness until just recently now got quite soft in what seems like overnight but still got firm look if that makes sense and even tho its softer still got a firm type feel just curious how close to natural feel and look i can expect i no i got to be realistic cause they not real but im hoping its close lol guess time will tell.. Hopefully your other one catches up soon apparently its quite common for them to drop at different rates fortunetly for me so far they seem level but im sure it could change since my dropping prob hasnt really started yet lol
  9. So im currently 1 month post op, i have mentor cohensive 1 round smooth implants placed in dual plane position ive noticed they seemed to have softened a fair bit in what seems like over night but still not as soft as im hoping for, how soon can i expect them to be at the softest they going to get or would i already be there and how long did it take everyone else to get to their softness. Thanks
  10. @RKN yes I am very happy I didn't expect to like them as much as I do this early as I never liked the look of fresh done BAs, I realised I always liked them after the D&F process but he definetly exceeded my expectations
  11. @RKN i had same placement as Kit but my recovery was alot smoother then hers and no where near as painful as i was anticipating. My right side was basically pain free from moment I woke up and had great movement my left was little more sore and movement on that side more restricted, day two was little more sorer but still not that bad didn't need help doing anything for myself thankfully lol.. laying down and getting up was little challenging for few days but if your proped up enough makes it easier.. I am very happy with my results but still early days so won't know for sure until they drop and fluff and I can see my final result but with how its going so far I'm confident I will be happy.
  12. @RKN I had my surgery with Dr kollias almost 3 weeks ago I think his amazing and price very reasonable for a reputable plastic surgeon.. I got smooth round implants placed under muscle and cost me approx 9500 which includes night stay in hospital.. recommend him 100% very respectable surgeon lots of girls on here who have gone with him love their results and never hear anything but great things about him. Good luck with your choices
  13. @Kit oh damn wow that's what I'm worried about.. I am feeling better tho right side still not great but not as bad as it was so hopefully no permanent damage happening... sometimes it feels like something hard is poking out the side of my breast and I actually go to feel if there is anything like implant poking out or something lol but there isn't.. I think my incisions ache too so much different pains going on here to pin point it all lol stressful times ? I have been trying to take it more easy trying to avoid lifting kids as much as possible it's just hard but I guess i knew it was going to be should of thought it out more realistically and done it at a time my partner could of been home longer or my eldest was on school holidays.. but my partner kept insisting it would be fine i should of listened to myself haha.. Just annoying because I felt bad enough spending this sort of money on myself when I have 3 kids to provide for and really don't wana end up messing it up and then realising I basically threw the money away on nothing lol want it to at least be worth it.
  14. @I HaveBoobs nah not harsh at all lol I know your right thanks for that I will definitely take your advise ?
  15. @I HaveBoobs thanks for that yeah my right side is what bothering me more just doesn't feel right feels like implant gona fall out lol and very strong pulling down pressure type feeling when I move my arm out or lay down and through the day just aches wouldn't be so concerned if pain was like this whole time just concerns me my right side was my better painfree side now it's the worse side lol... I did say I thought it could of been from tightening my surgical bra but then I forgot I actually loosened it during night to see if it helped but when I woke in morning actually felt worse and tightening it up again actually relieved it... I no I'm probably doing too much to soon but don't have much choice unfortunately 6 weeks of no lifting with 2 young kids isn't very practical lol just hope I haven't damaged anything when i told my surgeon I had younger kids at home he said u shouldn't lift for 6 weeks but try go four weeks and see how you feel but then also assured me lifting them won't damage anything it will just hurt and could cause me to drop them lol but lifting them doesn't actually hurt at all it's more stretching out for stuff or trying cut hard things when making dinner that causes me pain lol... aches and stuff not so concerning more just unsure if the weird pressure feeling is Normal or not... thanks for your advice with the lifting I'll try take it bit more easy next few days and hopefully it improves I think I'm just paranoid cause it wasn't a cheap procedure and I just keep panicking that I'm going to mess it up and end up paying all this money for nothing lol
  16. Hey girls so I'm.currenrly just over 2 weeks post op, my recovery has been pretty good but I have noticed last couple of days my pain has slightly increased my boobs have an achy burning feeling around the sides and underneath and tender to touch but can actually relieve it if I cup my cold hand around it for a few seconds underneath also feels very heavy mainly the right side, just wanted to no if this type of pain is Normal best way I can describe it is feeling like when your breastfeeding and your breasts are aching cause they really full with milk. I was starting to worry I've damaged something or just been doing to much as I've got to run around after a toddler and a baby all day but now I'm wondering if it could be From tightening my bra up. Maybe I'm just being paranoid cause when I look at them they look fine
  17. @Nic#460cc they look amazing already.. glad everything went well.. wishing you a speedy recovery ?
  18. @Nic#460cc good luck dw I was nervous too just try relax it will be over before you no it ?
  19. Hi @I HaveBoobs I don't have any experience or advice just didn't wana read and run without sending you some wishes, hope that it's nothing serious I can't see the lump in the photo but I would be getting checked best of luck
  20. @I HaveBoobs thank you very much when I tried a couple days ago it was very uncomfortable straight away so moved it back, then I tried again yesterday and I was comfortable for most the day but then towards the end started feeling pain all under my breasts so moved it back might give it a couple more days then try again..
  21. @margaretriver aww dw I keep getting same type of paranoia couple times I've over stretched to reach something and really hurt myself then panicking whether ive ruined something lol and couple times I got this weird slightly painful pop feeling in my breast like muscle snapping in place or something lol only happened a couple times not sure if it's normal or not i duno maybe is a spazam seems to happen when my chest tenses but not letting myself get overly concerned.. besides that I'm doing great the recovery is know where near as bad as I was expecting I'm already lifting my 12kg 11month old with no issues at all and I'm only just over 1 week po, but I don't make habit of doing it often only when I need too lol my 2 yr old I haven't been confident to lift yet but I probably could.. today is the first day I'm going to be completely on my own as my partner heads back to work and my 8 year old back to school so not sure how I'm going to go with putting them down to nap etc... my breasts are slowly softening they seem to feel alot softer when I bend down not sure why lol my breasts were very different too I think that's normal, from the moment I woke up from surgery my right side has been basically pain free, but my left was alot worse, now they both basically pain free only time I feel pain now is if I over stretch to do some thing and getting in and out of bed oh yes and after sleeping and getting up in morning which is what i think they refer to as morning boob lol..
  22. Hey girls I'm now 1 week post op and my compression bra has two levels of tightness ive been wearing my compression bra on the loosest clip, now decided to put it on the tighest one, it does feel a little restraining is this something I should of done or should I just stick to the looser one
  23. @cheetah haha oh no worries that's fine lol nice of you to take the time to reply to such an old message lol I was new on the forum back then and didn't realise your meant to tag a person for them to get notified of the response lol.. but yes I am very happy and judging size with my eyes I think sizing is great but I did get disappointed when I got measured up for a surgical bra and it was only a 34B but girls rekon not to take notice once I start the D&F process I should get the D I was hoping for, any chance u can shed any light on this, was your surgical bra smaller then the bra sizes you finished up with or should I not count on them changing lol wouldn't think after getting 450cc id end up a B lol I thought at very least at least a large C haha
  24. @MellieMoo I just had surgery with Dr Kollias last week, I didn't get overs but I did get 450cc round dual plane and I am extremely happy with my results as are so many other girls that have used him, I understand your concern but i don't think you would be disappointed with him at all he really knows his stuff and I haven't came across anyone with a negative thing to say, he wouldnt recommend it if he didnt think he could give you amazing results. Just to ease any doubts you have get a second or even third opinion I think you will find the recommendations very similar if you see reputable surgoens, which will hopefully ease your nerves and if they are the same I'd definetly stick to Dr kollias not because he is cheaper but just because his work is truely amazing the lower price is just a bonus. I could not speak highly enough of him, when other girls said same thing i had my doubts and thought maybe they just overly excited but now ive done mine i can definetly say the same.. His price also includes a night stay in hospital where the staff are absolutely amazing, worth every dollar. A nurse there was telling me how she thinks Dr Kollias must be a real boob man as his work is always fantastic and how she had a niece who travelled to Sydney and paid 19k to get hers done and they are no where near as good as what Dr Kollias does.
  25. @margaretriver yeah that makes sense.. oh wow your exercising early lol that's great maybe I'll be able to start sooner if I start off slow like that too... weight gain sucks but nice to no I'm not only one so must just be surgery side effect which makes me feel better then just thinking I gained that kind of weight from nothing lol... Maybe you need more time off work or need to speak to them about doing lighter work if it's causing you issues last thing u wana do is go backwards in recovery
