  1. I wish I knew about this procedure, especially now that I know I dont heal well. Sounds like a great option.
  2. So sorry.....ironic that we're both from Adelaide, both had our surgeries close to each other and both having ongoing issues that dont seem to fit the 'normal fixes'. If we had used the same surgeon I would have started to wonder, but guess we both have bodies that haven't responded well. Hoping there's light at the end of the tunnel soon for both of us that makes all this worth it.
  3. Firstly I'm really sorry that I havent accepted anyones friend requests or answered any messages. I had been trying to just stay away from everything to do with boobs, try to stop focussing on them while I 'wait and see" if any of my issues resolve so I didn't get so upset all the time. I'm now just over 3 months post op, had to have a redo one side at 3 weeks post op for a double bubble type look. Mainly this can be due to them lowering your crease but mine never was. Anyway, 3 months on and I still have the double bubble look just as before and my other side even has it slightly too. My scars are also still horrible even though I've been using silicon gel twice a day as soon as my stitches healed over. I can feel the edging of the implant quite a lot and rippling when I lean forward. I just sent Dr Harwood more updates and he got me to lift the skin above my nipple to see if the fold disappears which it does. Even though my nipple was still above my crease pre-op, so didnt need a lift at all, apparently this means my skin tone doesn't want to snug the implant and my only options are - 1 - Do nothing - wait and see 2 - Consider a benelli type lift around my areola to take up the slack which the benefit is I can keep my C cup (I dont want to go big plus even with this size I can feel all the edging of the implant) .... it can be done soon BUT the downside he said is that I may be left with bad scarring seen as my crease scars aren't healing well (he's not at all happy with my scars) 3 - Go with a bigger implant which can't be done for quite a while due to waiting for the brazilian implants coating to break down etc. 4- Investigate laser skin tightening for my upper breast but he doesnt know how effective it would be. So there you go, everything from the size, the shape and my scars haven't worked out even close to what I had hoped I know Dr Harwood will look after me and dont think it had anything to do with him as a surgeon or the choice of implants he used on me, just my skin, my body unfortunately. But now I'm left with what to do??? Any advice?? Anyone else ever have these issues where theres a double bubble even though the crease was never lowered? Did going bigger resolve it, benelli lift???
  4. Thanks again girls, I'm meant to update the doctor with photos etc in 2 more weeks so trying to be patient until then because there's obviously also the issue of the re-do breast still not settling in the crease. It's just that things go round and round your head so wanted other's opinions on it and that I'm not going crazy with how different shape I've ended up. I just dont feel like me, which I know sounds stupid because of course I wanted to look better with boobs but still thought I'd be my shaping, just bigger. SeptemberBoobies - wow, you are close, I didnt even see that, all the best with everything, I hope I didnt dampen your excitement and thankyou with your explanations, it does make a lot of sense.
  5. I cant find the website to point you to, but when I was researching BA's I came across the issue of overly sensative nipples and the girl had tried to rough them up so they were less sensitive. The therapist had her stop right away as this only increases your body/nerves response to not like touch. Instead she had her work with silk. When she was in a relaxed mood, to daily lay on her back and just run the silk scarf over her nipple lightly for as long as she could stand without it becoming irritable. Then to progress to having the silk on the mattress and letting her nipple brush over the scarf instead. The concept behind it is to have the nipples touched enough with something that isn't horrible which can help stop your nerves overreacting to touch. Its a bit like tickling your forearm (brushing over lightly) never feels as goose bumpy as if it were your side under your arm .....both touches are soft but the forearm has a lot more contact with things day to day than your side under your arm. So by using the silk which is soft and hopefully not making you flinch, you send different signals to the nerve endings about touch.
  6. thankyou girls and SeptemberBoobies...that makes a lot of sense and a little depressings also. I was deciding between Harwood and Miroshnick and although I think Dr Harwood is fantastic at what he does, now I understand what your saying..... I look at Big Red's results and can see Dr Miroshnik has not placed them central to the nipple but actually brought them in more for her so perhaps would have done the same for me.
  7. Thankyou for taking a look ....it's been like it the whole time really and although my left side settled quicker, my skin seems to shrink wrap around the inner part of the implants and a little on top also so magnifies the jutting out severely from my chest look (actually worse in real life and hard to show in photos). I could understand it if they were still rock hard but they are fairly soft for brazilian so if they are already relaxed, this may be what I'm left with.
  8. Just had a look at your photos for you and I really think it would be because of the very small distance you had between your nipple and breast crease, the implant would almost feel like its bulging out of you as your skin and breast tissue gets used to more weight and the more bulging shape there. You may even be getting slight muscle spasms as it settles. With my right breast that isnt co-operating, (also had the shorter distance from crease to nipple) I actually like it when I feel strange sensations in it, because that to me means 'something' is happening in the settling process.
  9. I feel like I'm going insane but as much as I look at pre-op and post-op results of anyone with similar implant choice to me and also see their before photos, so know their starting point.....I still dont understand why I have a 3 finger width gap when I didnt before? For those that are friends with me would you please give me your opinion? Would you agree by looking at my pre-op shots that you would imagine my results to be closer also? I'm just wondering if the implants I got were just the wrong choice for me because if you look at my pre-op shots, although I'm tiny, my cleavage met in the middle so surely I should remain similar? It's not that I find a close or wide cleavage any better but you have in your head and get used to your natural shaping, then do a lot of research to estimate the results you will get and even got told by the PS I saw here before seeing Dr Harwood that I should end up with a 1 cm gap. I got 270ccHP brazilian teardrops with a width size of 11.1 and my natural breast widths are 11 and 11.5 Thankyou girls xxx
  10. I've altered but not that big a difference, more like what Georgia said...almost like they would swell more. Your one lucky girl though and hopefully they keep growing and you dont need a BA!!
  11. I got 270ccHP and would have been happier with less or moderate profile 240cc to fit the same breast width. For me it was that I wanted to look my best naked and I've always been fine with small boobs, I just wanted them a bit fuller and if I wanted more projection clothed, I'd use bras. I think it all depends on your frame though (I'm fairly boney) and on the side in clothes, mine jutt out more than I would have wanted to tell you the truth and thats without bras. Who knows though, I'm early post-op so they may soften sideways more so gradually coming out from my cleavage instead of seeming to jutt out too severe.
  12. You can FR me....I had 270cc HP furry Brazilians and am now a C cup from an A. They have settled even more than my pics show but sometimes I still find their bigger than I wanted, I guess I just need to get used to them. Jamily, could I FR you please, it's always great to see progress pic of furry brazilians further down the track.
  13. I had the same problem and ended up just wearing my post op bra and then a zip up hoody over the top for a while. Even though I could lift my arms to wash my hair I couldn't strain them for putting a top on so I still found wearing singlet tops or wide neck long sleeve tops that you can step into far easier. Then again the zip up hoody over the top for extra warmth.
  14. I saw them the other day and definately want to try some on. Not sure if anyone else has tried just taking out the wire from bras (that arent designed to be removed)....but I had a cheap pair from cotton on that were gorgeous, I just cut the wire out and they seem to fit and sit really well so going to try it on some others I have before chucking them out.
  15. So glad you found this out before you had your BA. We are all different and nothing is wrong with getting a BA and equally nothing is wrong with having small boobs. The truth is I still only wanted small boobs but needed them fuller due to breastfeeding and ending up with just skin etc. I'm waiting patiently for my 270ccHP implants to settle more but I still dont love them. I wish I went smaller, just to fill me slightly and thats all.
  16. Try not to get caught up too much on cup sizing because someone with a wide breast base may need an E cup but only look like a D cup outwardly. Try to concentrate more on your overall end look of shape etc. Like the other girls have said, they'd be sitting very high right now which will make them look huge to you purely due to shape. The other thing is the boobie blues is a real thing and many of us go through it. I think its the bodies reaction to the anesthetic and also your hormones running overboard getting used to something foreign in your body.
  17. Have you heard of the nuance style furyy brazilians? This is what my surgeon was borderline using for me as I also have a very short distance from my crease to nipple. I ended up with getting away with a normal teardrop as I was only going very small anyway. What is your breast width measurement?
  18. Everyone is different depending on your natural breast tissue and breast width dimensions. If you have a breast width of 14 for example you might get a cup size of a C with 400cc's but a breast width of 11 for example with 400cc's may end up an E. Do you know your height, weight and breast width dimension? I was an A cup beforehand and with 270cc's, I'm measuring a C to D cup but mybreast width is 11 in one and 11.5 in the other with not much natural breast tissue.
  19. Haha.....love what the boys said...such perfect timing right when you needed it. I'm so glad your heard it!! Oh and even more glad you didnt pop out of your bikini although I'm sure those boys wouldn't have minded I'm the same, thought I would finally feel confident having boobs but still at the stage where I just hide them lol.....my aim was to get them done in winter so they'll be more settled for summer, then hopefully I'll feel more confident wearing things that show them rather than hide them.
  20. As far as creams for scaring, you will have to talk to your surgeon first as many want you to use micropore for 6 weeks first, some just have a waterproof dressing for 5 days then nothing but rubbing cream. After the initial healing period when your incision is fully healed and no scabbing or stitches, you can use silicone tape/sheets or gel, vitamin E or bio-oil, rose hip oil etc.....everyone has there preference. Personaly after researching I'm using silicon sheet for day time as its extra padded so helps where my bra sits and silicon gel for night times. A vitamin I would definately recommend is taking probiotics while on your antibiotics (works better if taken at different time of day than the antibiotic) so you dont end up with a yeast infection as Mums2 said (I get one if I'm ever on antibiotics but didnt this time while on probitoics). Other bonus vitamins you can take if you want after your BA are zinc, vitamin C and vitamin E which all assist with your body tissue healing (but you can not take vitamin E before your BA as it can cause probelms with bleeding and only take it after your surgeon says it's ok for after your BA) ***My doctor said I could take vitamin C and zinc before and after my BA aslo so continued this right through for good measure
  21. Hi Girls, I just thought I'd let anyone know thats considering brazilians that I've decided to do regular monthly 'squishiness' albums to show with as much detail as I can how they are sitting cleavage wise, when I lean forward, the softness, how far I can push them in etc etc. Once I'm a few more months, I'll redo some albums to show the progression rather than future girls having to search through monthly albums to compare. My aim isnt to show my boobs off in the best way but to show as real as I can to help others (I'll do other shots to show them off where they look at their best just so I dont feel completely daggy lol) I know I found it extremely hard when I was pre-op as I dont personaly know anyone that had a BA, never seen or felt any in person and there's even less info on brazilians etc so I would madly look at photos and ask questions but camera angles and obviously taking shots of a more flattering nature didn't show me how they moved and looked at awkward angles etc. I thankyou so much to those girls who did show that type of thing, it was so helpful but most weren't brazilians so this is my way of giving back. Also happy to take any requests from anyone wanting to know how they behaved in certain angles and I'll do my best to show it. I know I only had relatively small implants so it will only show from my personal experience but hopefully it will be helpful to some. Oh and just to be safe from internet stalkers, if your a newbie and want to friend request me, I wont accept until I can see you are posting, answering threads, or have your own albums etc....anything to show that your truley actively seeking to get a BA, hope you understand. xxx

    What size?

    I think you'll find if you have photos of the look and sizing your after, once the doctor sees you, he'll work out what sizing will achieve that for you. Everyone is so different and 400cc's in one person will look tiny, but huge in another. Im also 166cm's but 48kg, after breastfeeding etc I was a deflated A cup. I got 270HP and they are plenty big enough for me.
  23. Hi Ladies, I have a zip up post op bra from my surgeon (Marena brand size S) - I like the way it supports me and tends to push my breasts inwards more than the crop tops but it's a zip up and hard to put a top on over as the zip pokes through the fabric. Not to mention I have the smallest size they had and it's still a little big. I thought one that clips up might hide better and didn't know if you can get adjustable ones so I can pull it tighter. Are there any particular brands/styles that anyone found the best?
  24. I'm too early post-op to give you personal experience but some do end up with a bigger change in shape and size, and some just soften but not alter much. In your case I'd say you will get more lower pole and yes, look bigger and fuller than now. Hope I'm not giving too much boring info but the info below might help explaining why. The actual flat base of the implant wont move from where it has first been put, so they dont drop and fluff like other implants but pec muscles, your natural breast tissue and the implant itself alter the eventual shape, size and feel. YOUR BODY'S ROLE - Pec muscles and natural breast tissue Your pec muscles may take longer to let go and relax seen as you are into weights etc and they would be altering the shape a little too. Once they relax, you should get more lower pole as at the moment they are squeezing and holding the shape up. Initially some people get very swollen so they look bigger and actually go smaller once the swelling goes down but after that, as the pec muscles let go your natural breast tissue also gets less tight so can make them feel softer and fuller. THE IMPLANTS ROLE Then there's the implants itself and this is the part this that take up to a year to see final result. The implant coating needs to slowly do its thing and breakdown with your tissue (others have explained it better), then you are left with normal silicone cohesive implants which will start to soften as the coating breaks down. So although the implant itself wont move, all these thing do seem to change the final outcome and besides softness changes, they can appear bigger and fuller as everything relaxes and softens. Not everyone sees a change in size much though because if their pec muscles and breast tissue relaxed early on, then its just the implant softening to wait for.
  25. Loz, I'm in the same situation. I KNOW in my head that most of it has to do with the situation I'm in with life (marriage ending after 20 yrs plus other things) but you have to be kind to yourself and know yourself enough to realise when your sensative...remove anything thats not healthy emotionally. For me, I want to stay here but dont tend to view many photos unless I"m good that day. Same with FB, I deleted it for a while and even after activating it again, I dont post or deliberately dont even look atvery often as it just depresses me seeing everyone get on with their lives, have all these wonderful family moments and I'm still unable to move forward after a year of separation. Again I know in reality that out of all the FB friends, they might only be doing one outing thats great every fortnight and I want happiness for all of them....but times that by the number of friends and it looks like I'm the only one without truely living. I hope you dont leave but it's ok to go quiet for a while and just do whats healthy for you. xxx
