  1. I did not get enbloc, my implant was taken out and the capsule were sent off for pathology testing in case of ALCL
  2. my dominant side took longer to drop but they were never 100% even but they werent to begin with
  3. There is no surgeon in the world I would trust more with my breasts than Dr Tavakoli. I have been lucky enough to film in theatre with him for this website several times and he has an exceptional attention to detail, is extremely fussy and is an absolute perfectionist. As for implant sizing, he will recommend a size range suitable for you during your consultation and you will have the opportunity to try on sizers in the office. You make a decision on which sizes you would like. During surgery, he will use implant sizers to find the most suitable implant size for your frame and I have been in theatre with him before where the patient gave him a printout of her "wish boobs" which I witnessed him referring back to before deciding on the right implant. My understanding is the implant sizers are not just to decide on the best size but also the best projection and shape for your breast footprint i.e. tall, oval, round base etc He is not as expensive as people seem to think, last time i checked it was around $14,000.
  4. I had my implants and capsule removed by Professor Mark Ashton. He was great and I was lucky that most of my costs where covered by my Private health insurance as I had late onset seroma (suspected ALCL) and they had to come out for a time. Its been two years since explant and I will be seeing Dr Tavakoli for my next augmentation as I hate the way my breast look naked and I personally think he does an incredible mini boob job which im hoping to achieve
  5. I can guarantee no such service exists - in fact only a matter of a few weeks ago, Google was held in contempt of court for failing to remove defamatory reviews after a court issued an injunction - https://www.theaustralian.com.au/nation/google-on-contempt-charge-over-reviews/news-story/a91b54fb41c5578acfbeba5387eb4969 I seriously doubt businesses would take the very expensive route of court injunctions if there was a service that could hide them. I suspect your genuine review may not have shown because it was flagged by your IP address or contained a link to an external website etc
  6. So tomorrow is the day. I had my pre surgical appointment at Cosmos clinic today. I was sized up for my post op garment which is like shorts that come up around your shoulders with straps. Way better than any spanx ive ever worn - gives you some serious kim kardashian curves without any surgery lol I also have to wear a binder with a board that goes under it so that it helps the skin and tissue settle flat. Ill post some pictures on this thread tomorrow when I am wearing it. Very very excited for tomorrow
  7. omg without giving anything away - the long night battle of winterfell - wowwwww
  8. im pretty keen on the motiva implants, lots of surgeons use them. I do beleive they are much softer than the mentor anatomical implants. You should speak to a surgeon who does lots of both types of implants. I always believe that the surgeons who are not tied to one implant brand or type offer great advise. There are trade offs with all implants, its best to workout what factors are important for you. Its worth noting that Mentor anatomical implants have been around for a long time and are well researched. I remember all the positive fandom around brazilian poly implants when I had my surgery many years ago and how they were amazing implants with no capsular contracture, very safe etc and now we know they are actually associated with the highest incidence of ALCL
  9. just putting it out there and i know its so off topic but im so excited for game of thrones season 8 tomorrow
  10. You may get more of a wow factor with higher profile anatomical implants over rounds as the anatomical implants are form stable and keep their shape. Rounds tend to be more cohesive. Abby Dowse has anatomical implants and they have heaps of upper pole https://www.instagram.com/p/BwEPW_fDB9O/
  11. the risk with the mentor implants is around 1:86000 which to me is an acceptable risk. It is important to be aware of ALCL and know what to look for because early treatment is simply removing the implant and capsule.
  12. These implants where removed for reasons unrelated to ALCL. I believe it was many years ago now that they were removed from market here and it had to do with a possible contamination during the process of making them. My experience is also like Jugs, I had rounds and wanted to change to anatomical.
  13. Hey everyone, I wanted to share in here the podcast that I was featured on this week on Inside Aesthetics as part of my role here at Cosmetic Journey. You can listen to it here: Spotify: iTunes: We talk about the work we do here at Cosmetic Journey and discussed things like social media in plastic surgery, regulator censorship, procedures and more. Would love to know what you think of it
  14. Agree, I would not have an issue having Mentor textured implants inserted the risk is around 1:56000 however im worried about the risk of rotation since im sure my pocket is a hot mess. Im going to go with Motiva mini or demi implants - they are considered a smooth implant
  15. Hey Sheba, I had my moderate profile implants removed 18 months ago and am now planning on getting Motiva Demi (moderate) put in, in a much smaller size. They will be the same projection but narrower
  16. I can recommend Dr Layt or Dr Stradwick for revision surgery in QLD. They are both very good surgeons. Dr Cheng would be another choice to look into
  17. Hi Jen, I would highly recommend seeing a plastic surgeon in your area for a consult to remove them.. Depending on what state you are in, we could give you recommendations. I had mine removed by Professor Mark Ashton in Melbourne and was very happy with the care and results he gave me. There isnt a whole lot that can be done for the appearance post op except for perhaps opting for a breast lift or seeing a plastic surgeon like Dr Tavakoli who does lots of fat grafting on the breasts for explant patients.
  18. Is that recommended due to the risk of damaging your current implants during the fat grafting process? Why did he think fat grafting would be better rather than an implant? My understanding is that implants are more predictable than fat and fat grafting is a good adjunct in small amounts to disguise or conceal small defects in the breast or chest wall - very few surgeons use it for size
  19. Hey guys, Im really excited. I had my consult with Dr Joseph Ajaka from Cosmos Clinic in Double Bay sydney this week and have booked for lipo and skin tightening for 2nd May. Ive pretty thin but have a teeny pocket of fat below my belly button and some loose skin there after having kids - its not enough to get a tummy tuck nor do i want those scars so we are hopeful that the vaser will help tighten the skin back up. I was told I could expect around 50% tightening so if thats the case ill be stocked. Ill add pictures on here later but im really excited
  20. how are you going vlinder, are you happy with your fat grafting now
  21. Im thinking about getting vaser lipo on my lower tummy at cosmos clinic with Dr Joseph Ajaka. I have seen some really amazing results on his instagram page of people who i would have thought for sure would need a tummy tuck but they amount of skin tightening they got from the vaser was amazing. I have very little fat on my abdomen but some loose skin just below my belly button from having kids. Has anyone had vaser at cosmos and how did it go with recovery and also skin tightening. https://www.instagram.com/p/BscluzAnDeJ/
  22. I cant wait for this procedure to be developed more and become more readily available.
  23. you are in great hands. Dr Tavakoli is really great at what he does and no drains
