  1. Hi ladies, my surgeon suggested bio oil for itching and helping with healing if the scar and it works a treat! I am 3.5 weeks post off tt (extended mini) and BR
  2. Hi everyone, Today is day 4 after my breast reduction and mini tummy tuck. Everything went really well, I am loving my small boobs and my tummy and I have a c cup now instead of a E. I will post some pics later- all went really well, except I had a reaction to the endone on day 2 which lead to a massive headache and vomiting. Once my drugs were pared back to panadol/ panadiene forte I have been great. Great to the point that I have to be careful not to overdo things. Have had some pressure on,my chest yesterday and today, otherwise I barely have had any discomfort at all. I was expec
  3. Hi JJMelb, my weight is 69 kilos and I am 158cm. So I am not tiny and the 5 kilos above my recommended Bmi weight.
  4. JJmelb my surgeon won't do it either, he reckons I just need to lose about another 5 kilos and it will go. I carry all of my weight in my hips and tummy so it is infuriating that I can't lose the last 5 kilos and he won't lipo them. He said given I am also having a BR it just increases the risk that much more ?... I have tried exercise and high protein low carb and have lost 8 kilos but can't lose 5 kilos as my body always plateaus at 69 kilos. Also tried calorie counting and have between 1200-1400 calories max per day. So flipping annoying.
  5. Thanks everyone, the anesthetist has offered the gas first so I am going to definitely give that a crack! Lol thank gosh I feel better today. 9 sleeps whoo hoo !
  6. Best of luck- I hope all of your boobie dreams come true!
  7. So I had my consult with my anesthetist today. Up until this point I have not stressed one single bit. When she started talking to me about my cannula I had a panic attack as needles are my phobia. She was awesome and offered my angel cream and gas to settle me down. It seriously took me over an hour to stop shaking and I felt like I was going to vomit. All this just from talking about it. Luckily only 10 sleeps to go! She is also giving me a pain pump for the first 24 hours yay!
  8. Hi everyone, can totally agree with starting to stress. Evie you and I get ours done the same day but I am decreasing mine instead ? , also having a mini TT. Bag 80% packet.... We are nearly there!
  9. I know some of you are on the post op side and I thought I would set this up to share experiences.
  10. Hi August ladies, i am going to set up a new thread August ladies on the Post Op side to share experiences.
  11. Having mine done in Hobart - cant wait. I see all of these gorgeous lingerie sets and can't wait to go shopping!
  12. Thanks Danijade, When are you? What are you having done? Soooo exciting !
  13. I am having a breast reduction and mini TT in just under two weeks so I am loosely starting to put a bag together as I have to travel for work to days prior to my surgery. What do I need to take, I remember seeing posts here about bags but I cant find them now. Also is there a trick to posting pics of my befores?
  14. I was wondering this too as I am back to work 2 weeks after br and mini tt and then have to fly interstate. Should be fine though I reckon.
  15. So excited to see how everyone went! I am not for 13 days yet lol, but Monday i have my pre anetheticnconsultation... Makes itnseem so real. So happy for those that have been already- hope all of yourndreams come true xxx
  16. Hi Kas77, If you are looking for a great surgeon, my surgeon in Hobart is great. He is head of plastic surgery at the Public Hospital here and he is the guy that all nurses recommend. I know Hobart isn't on your radar, but I am having BR, BL and Mini TT and my out of pockets are only $3,800 with PHI, I realise you still have the costs of implants to contend with but it might be worth a call to his practice. His name is Frank Kimble. Hopefully that helps. Best of luck
  17. Thanks Jaddles, I am not nervous at all yet just super excited. They might kick in a day or two before ?Thanks for the advice- much appreciated .
  18. After two years pondering, 11 months waiting for PHI to kick in my breast reduction is 23 days away. I am also have a mini tt to remove done tummy skin. I have arranged for my mum to come and stay for 5 days to take the pressure off my hubby for when I am in hospital and directly after to recover. Question to those who have been before-?what are your top 3 suggestions for taking to hospital/ tips for afterwards. Thanks again, you guys are awesome! I look forward to sharing my experiences with others once I am done ?.... 23 sleeps whoo hoo !!
  19. Hey ladies, not long now ! I have about 24 days to go ! Can't wait I can't wait to feel brand new!
  20. Musey, Congrats on your choice to have a BR. I am having one myself in August along with a mini TT... so look forward to hearing how you go. There is heaps of great info on here from people who have experience. Cheers
  21. Hi, I have made another appointment at my ps to see if he is doing lipo on my sides as well as part of my mini TT . Can anyone give me their experiences. Thanks muchly !
  22. Hi everyone, Wow i wish mine was that quick. It took me 3 months to get into the surgeon and then after my consult another 4 months before surgery. Still it has given my time to lose weight and tone up, so far down 7.5 kilos.
  23. Our numbers are getting up there yay!
