  1. Whether you choose here in Aus or overseas in Thailand it all boils down to the right doctor. Thailand hospitals (fully accredited international) are as clean if not cleaner than here in Australia. If you have the op in Thailnd they do not recommend you fly before 10 days post op (or no warranty cover) so that is prob another reason the didnt recommend you have the op here then fly to Thailand in 6 days. I personally agree with the earlier comment you wont be able to enjoy Thailand anywhere near as much if you go too soon after your BA so if you have it here split your holidays up into one week at a time, if you cant then i would recommend you go on your holiday then come back and have the BA.
  2. Has anyone had or heard any stories on Lipo dissolve. Its injections into the fatty areas and they swell up considerably for the next 4 days then it all goes back to normal and in 12 weeks the difference is amazing. From the stories on the net its extremely painful but everyone still says you get great results with out have Liposuction. Im thinking of having it on my tummy and maybe thighs.
  3. Mine are under the arm and are a light shade of pink. You can def tell they are a scar but they are in a crease so don't stand out too much. Prob take about 6months I recon.... But that's just a guess
  4. Would love to hear how it all went and to see your before and after photos... Hope all is going great with your recovery ......
  5. Yes Ive been watching for an update too...hope all is well ......
  6. That's fantastic news. I hope everything just keeps getting better and better from now on. Luckily she went to the hospital when she did and didn't leave it any longer.....
  7. It's hard MADELEINE to wait patiently for them to settle. I'm 10 weeks also and are still wearing a sports bra 24/7 from Dr's instructions and mine have only started to change to a nice round shape in the last week or so and I have only cheated about 3 times and wore a BNT cotton underwire free bra for a couple of hours lol.... But I am going to go to Cotton On next couple of days and get the lace one that Starbright had on it is sooo pretty and looks comfy too.... And I only have 2 more weeks till its pretty bra time woo hoo
  8. Gosh Boobs Please I hope your friend is ok.... Fingers crossed all has gone well over the weekend. I am also a Bangkok girl and had heard it was hard to see a Dr here to correct any problems so I'm glad she has got some help. Can I just ask though if someone does have to have an explant for 6 months does that mean they would take both out so that you were even .....
  9. The co-ordinator from the hospital offered the pick up service otherwise I wouldnt have known about it either. They did give me 4-5 hotel suggestions in the local area but I stayed in the city (googled 22 min away but allow an hour min for bumper to bumper traffic lol) cause I could walk to the shopping district, restaurants and market. I stayed at Evergreen Place and had a 2 room suite (cheapest room) and it was $64. a night.(brekkie incl) I loved the hospital the professionalism, cleanliness (yep better than here and I work in the medical industry !!) and the whole caring/personalization treatment you receive. Two of my friends are thinking of going next year now after seeing my photos of the hospital and my stories. Dr Pramote may be a bit extreme with his recovery advice (3 mths 24/7 in a sports bra) but that also may have to do with my age (50) but the results are fantastic. I honestly did not think I would feel this good about myself, I finally feel in proportion and Im amazed I actually dont hate my legs anymore Im starting to believe everyone who said there not That big ha ha...... Good luck girls with everything....Oh the only thing I will pass on is after the op ask for strong pain relief in injection form as I was in extreme pain but they only gave me panadol/nurofen (which they classed as strong !! ) for the first 9 hours cause I didnt complain and they thought I was ok. (2 pethidine shots later I was fine ha ha). Even though they give you pain relief to take home I would recommend taking a tablet called Mersyndol Forte (prescription only / muscle relaxant) as they were the best pain relief for the first 2 days (then only needed panadol) and they dont tend to constipate you either like the heavier drugs...........
  10. Hi Ace80 I went to see Dr Stubbs www.drstubbs.com.au/‎ in Williamstown There are 2 types of procedures Refractive Surgery (lens replacement) or CK Treatment (non surgical). He does have a gap to pay from medicare but Im sure it was minimal. Two of my work collegues have had the lens replacement done and are extremely happy (one had astigmatism). Hope this helps.
  11. I'm still numb about a quarter on the bottom of both boobies.... Someone on here once said that can last 12 months or may never come back !!!!! ... I am Still wearing sports bras (boring to the max) 24/7 till my three months is up and even when I cheat for a couple hours / a day I get a bit sore or the guilt sets in lol But I must admit I am really pleased with the round /side boob shape they have become even if its taken a lot longer than most of the lovely ladies here and do look forward to sleeping free or wearing pretty bras for a change ....
  12. Instead of having contact lens implanted go to an ophthalmologist (eye specialist) and ask if you are a candidate for plasma replacement. Its around $2000. per eye and they remove the existing plasma from behind the eye and replace it with a false one, then you never wear glasses again. 2 of my work collegues have had it one in her 40's and the other in her late 50's. I wear contacts too but cant have the op for atleast another 7+ years cause my eyesight problems are age related only and my distance is only a +1 magnafied and my close is a +3.5 so when they get some what closer in gap I can have the op. It works better on ppl who have a stigmatism he said.
  13. Welcome danielleb820 & Zoey-lea you will love this site and it will become your bible once you have had ur BA.... No matter how silly you think the question is there is always a reasonable answer here ha ha..... And I don't know how many times my mind has been put at ease here quicker than an answer from the Dr lol.....
  14. Thanks girls ..... Looks like my new BFF (Tri pillow) gets to leave the room for a massage ha ha
  15. Hi this is prob a silly question but does anyone know how long after ur BA is it ok to lie flat on ur tummy. I'm in Bali and tried to sun bake but felt like I was putting too much pressure on them and they would burst ha ha... Luck I brought my Lilo for the pool as that's fine but too scared to have a full massage...
  16. I was numb on the bottom half of both boobies but now its reduced to about a quarter. Its just the very bottom part. And yes I had the extra sensitive nipples for about a week where they were so sore to even brush your arm past but all has settled there too. ( but Im like jessk217 they are more sensitive than before win win ha ha)
  17. Yep botox is the way to go.....I had my forehead and crows feet done 3 days ago cause Im off to Bali tomorrow for 3 weeks and nothing worse that white creases showing when its sunset time and you stop squinting bahahaa ooooh make that today its after midnight woo hoo..
  18. I took photocopies of mumoffive's boobies as well as all her ba info as we had almost same stats pre ba and her final look was exactly what I was looking for and although I have got a very similar look we have completely different cc's (hers 325 / mine 340) and mod profile / High profile so that just goes to show no 2 ppl are the same. Take the photos with you they are a great help to guide your ps but he will tell you in the end what you can or can not have.....oh and follow all the girls advise on here if you get a choice between two sizes Always pick the larger one ha ha
  19. Dont stress too much I have double bubble on my right boob. I was pre warned this can happen in anyone but especially as I was right on the cusp of having straight implants and the whole lift re allign as I was right on the 2 inch droop. After my op I had a sneak look at 2 days (instead of 3) and I can tell you I was back at the hospital on day 3 as I had an absolute flip seeing how deformed it looked. My Dr basically said I told you this could happen and dont worry it will all change when the muscle relaxes and you will hardly tell but we did decide to use thick rolled gauze in the bottom of my bra to help reduce the swelling quicker and to help raise the implant. (suposidly for 3 months). I left there no way believing him but plotting my revision surgery back here in Aus and when I went back to see him on day 7 I could not believe the change (for the better) there was, yes I got an I Told You So from him !!!! and I only used the gauze for about 3 weeks and now you can hardly see the muscle line and although the implant sits slightly lower on the right side they are just starting to drop and going rounder at the bottom and looking the same. Look at my photo with the black n white bather top on and you can actually see the right muscle line higher than the left. (my girlfriends said if I didnt tell them they wouldnt have know) now they are both even after a month and couple days....def get a second opinion from your ps though for peace of mind
  20. Aww grippster Im so sorry to hear your in pain with your scar. You might find the PS cant re-stitch the outside because if you have a hole under the skin then it has to heal from the inside out.... You dont want this to get any bigger though or they will start packing it to keep it dry and infection free...The aim is to keep it as dry and clean as possible so the waterproof is not necessary the best way to go as it keeps water out but also keeps your wound damp if there is any leaking on the inside too (and infections love warm damp areas). We use pad like dressings (sterilized) at work too on weeping sores as they are very absorbent. Ask your surgeon about a "silver" dressing (Acticoat), it goes on the wound and heals really quick and to get the best results from it is to leave it on for 5 days at a time. We use it on mild to sever wounds and get the best results. Hope all goes well tomorrow...xx
  21. They are def very comfortable...There is no breaking in bit either comfy from the start.....
  22. Ha Ha what the girls say is right...what looks big on the hanger isint as big on the body. I just had my first try on of Bras and every D she gave me i put back and got the C as they looked huge, but I had to eat my words and I was trying a C or a D depending on the bra. I ended up with two (same bra diff colors) in a C (more cleavage) but the D fitted just as comfortable.
  23. Just think before you do things cause its the everyday things you dont even think of till your doing them like when I tried to get the wet towels out of the washing machine.....(Didnt realise towels got so heavy lol) or shaking out the doona....its only for a short while lap it up I say
  24. I agree I wouldnt wear an under wire just yet. I just bought 2 extremely comfortable cotton bras from Bras n things and they come with a removable under wire. (the only bra in the shop with removable wires) They dont look the most prettiest but they give you an amazing full lift look shape, low cut front and back and I tried them on with and with out the wire and they looked exactly the same. I am going to use them for dresses in Bali and then put the wires in after my 12 weeks (Im guessing the wire help keep the shape long term). They were about $45. each and come in pink and grey colors. The code is Code: CCC205SHO Dont go by the picture or by the bra on the hanger cause I wouldnt give it a second look either but she insisted I try it on and I bought it in both colors for comfort to get me thru next 6 weeks.... Worth a look anyway...
  25. Im with you katems22.... I wore a black jumper to work the other day and thought gee they look small then same get in the shower (cause thats the only time they get freedom !!! ) and look at them and go Nope not small...glad I didnt go bigger def in proportion for my age ha ha....
