  1. I can highly recommend Dr Howard Webster in Melbourne for a lower face lift - he is really gifted particularly with facial surgery and he also has a very good record when it comes to patient satisfaction.

    Veneers

    HI Sasha, I had my veneers done here in Melbourne with Dr Dee - Ive written a thread about my experience, I cannot fault my experience at all. Veneers were the best thing I ever did and like you, my teeth were very healthy and straight so it was also a luxury. For me though, this made me more selective and careful when choosing who to go with as I did not want to regret doing them or end up with a result that was not as good as my original teeth. You can read about my experience and see pictures here:
  3. I really enjoy KX Pilates but due to the carona virus restrictions they are closed for the time being. I have looked at buying my own reformer for home but they are soooo expensive
  4. not me although I should be. We tried to make slime last night and it was a massive fail. How do you fail at making slime??? I am quite proud of my sourdough starter that I have bubbling along quite nicely - almost ready to give it a go and make my first loaf
  5. there is a green tea eye cream from Innisfree that I really like
  6. Hi Ritawaythe, I had invisalign and it was one of the best things I ever did. My teeth were already pretty great, but I had some minor aesthetic issues I wanted to address. As part of the Invisalign process you are required to have a mouth x ray and 3D imaging of your teeth. From this we were able to address some issues that I didn't even know existed. I paid extra money for AcceleDent which was about $1500 for a device you use every day. It means you are allowed to change your retainers every week rather than every fortnight. For me this was the biggest waste of money. For sta
  7. "Non-urgent elective surgeries in Australia's public and private hospitals will be banned from midnight in a bid to preserve the healthcare system to respond to the coronavirus pandemic." Such an awful crisis the world is going through. Has anyone had their surgery cancelled? What happens next? Have you been given a new date or do you need to rebook entirely
  8. You should consider looking into Dr Matthew Peters. he heads up a breast clinic in brisbane and does lots of reconstructive breast work.
  9. This is very commonly given immediately prior to surgery so that your pectoralis muscles are relaxed during surgery. I do know many patients who have also been prescribed limited doses of this post op to manage issues such as what you have described. I would be inclined to contact my surgeon and let them know of the pain/issues so they can assess you and advise on whether or not they wish for you to continue to take the muscle relaxant.
  10. She looks excellent, so much younger and fresh faced. Her heavy lids were hereditary rather than caused by ageing so it definitely enhanced her features.
  11. I can definitely recommend Prof Mark Ashton for both of these procedures. My bestie had her breasts done (very complicated, tuberous breasts requiring a lift and implants) along with blepharoplasty. You can see her results on her review here https://cosmeticjourney.com/review/clinician/mark-ashton/20/
  12. I suspect he is doing more rounds now because of the ALCL link with textured implants. I also didnt think medicare provided an item number for revision after 2018 except in the case of removal without new implants
  13. Hi there, As a TCI patient you would have had Nagor Impleo implants which are much better than the Nagor GFX implants I had. Donatella and I both had these implants and both had ruptures. My rupture was a gel bleed which caused very uncomfortable inflammation. I asked to keep the implants after explant and the side that was inflamed had air bubbles inside the implant and it burst in my hand when I gave it a soft squeeze. My preference for implants now is Mentor CPG anatomical as they have a very proven track record and long history so the longer term complications are well resear
  14. I havent had any experience with Dr Dona but he has many happy patietns on this site and is on the affordable side. I had a rupture and took advice from Dr Tavakoli and can highly recommend. He is on the more expensive side, but well worth it in my opinion.
