  1. Given that it is photo-shopped it is difficult to know if the look can be replicated by fillers.
  2. That's great, well done! Sounds like the wallet will be in for a beating with all your new clothes
  3. It sounds like you need to put some financial distance between you and your parents as soon as you can. Paying off the loan with your parents as soon as possible would go a long way into establishing financial distance. I don't know the situation with the renting from your parents, but if it's at a reduced rate because you are their daughter they will always have (and attempt to exert) perceived financial control over you. I imagine your father would have had the same reaction if instead of the cosmetic surgery you were intending to go on a luxury overseas holiday or were wanting to buy a luxury car.
  4. I remember your original posts. It is wonderful that you sought help and even more wonderful that it has helped you. I hope your book writing goes well, it is good that you can share your story. I am pleased you didn't have unnecessary surgery on your face because of spiteful and hurtful words from internet strangers. You actually have a lovely face with a great smile. Keep up the great work!
  5. Is that even legal? Illness or injury in the context of personal leave isn't what people think it is. If you are unable to work due to having elective surgery you are entitled to personal leave. I had eyelid surgery, entirely elective, I had one week personal leave (could have been two I can't remember). If your surgery was fairly recent I would be contacting fairwork australia or your union to ensure the annual leave is reversed and personal leave used. This covers of on elective surgery: http://workplaceohs.com.au/legislation/employment-workplace-relations/q-a/can-personal-leave-be-used-for-medical-appointments#.W2_8HugzbIU This is a bit older but still the same: http://career-advice.careerone.com.au/in-the-workplace/workplace-issues/sick-leave-or-annual-leave-20090729/article.aspx It also ties in with this: https://www.fairwork.gov.au/leave/sick-and-carers-leave/paid-sick-and-carers-leave/notice-and-medical-certificates Attending medical appointments and elective surgery Medical appointments and elective surgeries that are pre-arranged can only be covered by sick leave if an employee is not able to work because of a personal illness or injury. It will depend on each individual circumstance. An employer can ask for evidence from an employee to confirm that they were unfit for work. This can help decide if an employee should be paid sick leave or be paid a different type of leave or entitlement.
  6. People come and go from forums all the time, life and other activities take over, they have over things to do. Can't presume/assume anything, particularly can't assume that Shellymee moved on and didn't post photos because something bad happened in surgery or with the surgery results. And I certainly wouldn't be reluctant to progress my own surgery because someone doesn't post on a forum anymore or didn't post photos.

    What does your doctor think it is? ycreams you have tried are they over the counter or prescribed by your doctor?
  8. Hi You may get more of a response if you ask for information about a particular surgeon(s) rather than a clinic. You may also find some information from the reviews tab on the top of the page, its the fifth tab along.
  9. If you search for Lanzer in the search box on the top right hand side, you will find all the posts where Lanzer is mentioned.
  10. Hi Mel, thanks for responding. You are brave to come out with your story, particularly knowing what some people (including the likes of me) would likely say or question. It's clear from your outcome (and others) that the surgeon had no ethics nor the skill to do your surgery. It's great that you made recovery from the bad outcome and have moved on from it.
  11. From the article copies it is apparent there are issues around Dr Mooney's surgeries/actions, but I don't understand why anyone go would through surgery without properly consulting with the doctor/specialist at all?
  12. I assume you are responding to Diana..but you did get me thinking. I have good health insurance which includes weight loss procedures and while I pefer a non surgical approach for weight loss (the ESG not covered by medicare or health insurance), if my preferred surgeon recommends one of the surgical approaches as the best option for me I will probably opt for the recommendation, and I will finally get some use of my health insurance. Good luck with your application! Sounds like you are going for it at the right time. The government review on early release of super on compassionate grounds (including weight loss surgery) is due soon. I suspect there will be some tightening up of the guidelines.
  13. SIPS bypass looks interesting, I hope it goes well for you. The drawcard for the ESG was the fact it is non-surgical and only a day visit to the hospital (though some surgeons prefer to keep you in overnight).
  14. Only two reviews on the link below, one I recognise one from Destination Beauty https://www.whatclinic.com/bariatric-surgery/thailand/bangkok/thailand-gastric-sleeve-center I get the emails from Destination Beauty too, lately there have been quite a few promotions for weight loss surgery. Weight loss surgery is expensive in Thailand compared to other cosmetic surgery in Thailand, but the package from Destination does include hospital charges plus other accommodation and with airfares would still be cheaper than in Australia (without private health insurance). I have been looking at endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty which is fairly new to Australia and not covered by medicare so therefore no health fund rebate.
