    Holly got a reaction from Emjai101 in Too big for me? Advice please   
    Hi @Gold.KC you know you best. If you want small boobs, get small boob. I originally wanted 200cc just enough to be a b cup. I love the look of little boobs. My surgeon talked me up to 300cc which has me fitting C - DD depending on the bra. They look great and are a good size on my body, but for me in my mind and what I like, they are too big. I wish I stuck to my guns and will be looking into a revision to down size in the next couple of years. Just keep in mind your motivation for wanting them small. Is it just cause you don't want people to know, or because that's the look you like?

    Holly got a reaction from LookingforDD in My experience with Transaxillary vs Inframammary incision   
    Thanks for starting this thread. I am getting BA in 2 days and am getting the armpit incision and i have definitely noticed that its not common so its really great to hear from someone who has done both, that said i scar extremely bad which is why i put so much thought into my incision type, I have a few friends who have had BA and 4 of them have awfully bad scaring (not that you can see it as it sits in the fold) but the two girls that went armpit i struggle to find any scar even tho i know its there somewhere. that said there are also some who have very little scaring in the inframammary fold but i always just put that down to great healing in there bodies... lucky them. Thanks again

    @liz_irvine I have not yet had rhinoplasty but am looking to have it done this year. Hardest part for me is finding the right facial surgeon. It's a scary choice, especially because my nose only needs minor changes.

    Holly reacted to BA-finally in Tubal ligation   
    I had the mirena and I bled non stop for 4 months before telling the doctor to cut it out or I would do it myself (he told me every month to just give it one more month)
    i know for a fact I couldn't handle any more children mentally for a start but many many other reasons as well
    i had a scare 2 months ago and I was ready to book in to have it dealt with there was no second thoughts about it I wasn't going to be having another baby
    there are people who are trying to do the responsible thing by not being another child into the world for whatever reason and they won't operate, yet there are other people who seem to pop out kids wildly nilly whether they can provide/handle them or not
    and also what about all these elective procedures that people get that with all possibility may want reversed or regret the decision or whatever yet surgeons do them with out a worry because well they want it and they are going to pay for it
    i want to do the responsible thing grrr 
    sorry for the vent lol if I find anyone that will do it I will let you know haha though after talking to you I'm having serious doubts lol

    Hi Rallen
    I have 300's in both sides, but full under, so I lost around 10-20% of the "look" of the size of the implant, if that makes sense haha. the only pics I have up are pretty much in the first month post op and some pre op ones, but I will put some new ones up today. Also I started at AA and can wear anything from a C to a DD depending on the make now.

    Holly got a reaction from Cupcake85 in Vegetarian/vegan diet   
    Hi @Cupcake85. I'm glad to hear you have been going well with your new vegan diet. I have been vegetarian for ~17 years now and love it. I feel fantastic and over the last few years have noticed a lot more places offering vegetarian food on their menus. Have you felt sharper in the mind since you stopped eating animal products? I guess I cant remember ever feeling different then I do now, but many friends that have gone vegan rave about how much sharper their minds are. One thing to keep an eye on is your iron levels. I'm not saying you should start taking iron tablets, as it is important not to take them unless advised by your Dr. but do get tested regularly. I was tested for the first time since 2005 late last year and my ferritin was at 5 which is very low. Luckily I didn't have any of the negative side effects of the anemia but most people feel very unwell with low iron.
    To answer your original questions. t was easy to stop eating meat. Even though I don't remember what it taste like anymore, and I don't want to eat it at all, occasionally I crave chicken haha. My body must be craving protein.

    Holly got a reaction from lilyarmstrong2016 in My Fraxel experience   
    Hi all.
    7 days ago I had my first Fraxel treatment. I have finally finished peeling, so felt it was a good time to write a post on my journey so far.
    Just to start I stole this quote about Fraxel from aboutfaceskincare.com to give a quick run down of what Fraxel is and what it can help with… "Fraxel Laser Skin Resurfacing is an amazing laser treatment that is effectively changes the texture of all skin types and colors. Fraxel Laser Skin Resurfacing is FDA-approved, and uses fractional laser technology to help restore your skin to its original, perfect texture and achieves smoother, fresher, younger looking skin, improved tone and texture, smaller pores, erasing of unwanted brown spots, acne scars, and surgical scars, and reduces fine line lines and wrinkles."
    Fraxel was initially suggested to me by my dermatologist to help reduce the look of some scars that I have on my leg. I decided to hold off on starting treatment on my leg scars until I would also benefit from a treatment on my face. Doing this meant that I could combine the treatments and effectively cut down the over all cost, as treating two areas at the same time worked out significantly cheaper then treating them at separate times.
    Over the last 6 months I became very unhappy with the skin texture on my nose and cheeks, I later came to learn that I had dozens of milia building across my nose and cheeks, and it was at this time I decided to go ahead with treatment. 
     
    PRE TREATMENT:
    There was not much that I had to do (or not do) in the lead up to my appointment. The nurse did suggest that stop the L-lactic cleanser and retinol I use 48 hours prior. I also assumed that I should follow the same instructions I have for laser hair removal, but this was purely an assumption, it was never told to me by the nurse or dermatologist.
    I was instructed to arrive 1 hour early for my appointment to have a numbing gel applied to my skin. It is important to be on time as you do need the full hour with the numbing gel! Be sure to eat some food prior to your appointment as you will be in the office for a while. 
     
    APPOINTMENT:
    When I arrived for my appointment I was taken by my nurse into her office. We briefly went over what was going to happen, signed the treatment sheet and took some before pictures. I was then lead to a private waiting area with comfortable recliners to have my numbing gel applied. The gel was as to be expected, cold and gooey. The gel is rubbed up into your hair line so do make sure you have your hair up and out of the way. The numbing began to take effect very quickly, and although only a small amount got on my lips they too became very numb.
    After sitting with the numbing gel on my face and leg for around 1hr 15mins I was taken by my nurse to the treatment room. The treatment room had a surgical look and feel to it, it had the laser machine to one side of a bed, which I was instructed to lay on. My nurse was very kind and asked if I was ready to begin, which of course I answered YES!!! haha. She also made sure she talked me through everything that she was doing as she was doing it. 
    Ok onto the actual treatment. The laser has to pass over the skin in all directions. First the nurse went in vertical lines down my face, then horizontal, then diagonal in both directions, so a total of 4 passes over the skin. With the first pass over the skin I felt little to no sensation, the second pass over was slightly warm and a little uncomfortable in some areas, each additional pass over became more uncomfortable and in some places outright painful! I had no pain on the scars on my leg. On my Face I was treated with the weaker 1550 laser and on my leg I was treated with the stronger 1927 laser. When both treatments were completed the nurse applied a topical steroid to my face (usually she would use moisturiser but I am prone to eczema on my face so steroids were used) and QV intense moisturiser on my leg. I was then given my post procedure instructions as well as some cetaphil cleanser, QV intensive moisturiser and a tube of Sun Sense daily face tinted 50+ moisturiser. I also chose to buy a can of La Roche-Posay thermal spring water to spray my face with between moisturising. By the time I was lead out to pay my face was in agony! like someone had thrown acid on it. My face was also swollen by this stage and I was very grateful for my earlier water spray purchase! I forgot to take a wide brim hat with me to wear when I left so my friend got me a towel she had in the car to cover my face with while we drove home, as it is important to keep the treated skin out of the sun. Not to mention I was in so much pain I can not imagine letting the sun intensify the burning sensation I was already feeling. 
     
    IMMEDIATELY POST TREATMENT:
    Immediately following the treatment I went straight to my friends house and hid in the darkest, coolest room. My face was in A LOT of pain. I got a damp cloth and laid it over the face, which did help soothe the burning. Within 2 hours the pain began to lessen and was completely resolved within 3 hours, although swelling remained. My face looked very sunburnt with a matte appearance, if you looked closely you could see the lines from the laser. Later that night under the safety of darkness I had to fly home. The 5 and a half hour flight were made easier with some nurofen and a valium (not provided by the clinic) haha. Sleeping on the back is best post treatment as you need to keep the face thick with the QV intensive.
     
    DAYS FOLLOWING TREATMENT:
    I was advised to stay indoors and avoid as much light as possible for the first 7 days, sunscreen can be applied from day 3 but not before that. I also had to keep the skin slathered in QV intensive as the lasered skin was very dry. All exercise is to be avoided for a minimum for 4 days. After 4 days I could return to mild exercise but noting that would cause the face to get flushed, this included downward positions in yoga. after 1 week I can return to light weights and at 3 weeks full exercises can be resumed. My understanding is that this helps limit the chance of hyper-pigmentation.
    Over the course of the 7 days my skin went from looking very red, to bronze, to dirty brown, then my now fresh baby skin. During this time the matte layered skin slowly peeled off. It is advised not to pick or rub the skin but to let it come off in its own time. As the laser works as an exfoliator it can cause any underlying pimples that have yet to surface to pop up sooner, of course I was told not to try and pop these. In my experience the pimples are healing quicker then usually.
     
    RESULTS SO FAR:
    It is still very early and the skin will continue to improve over the next few months, but so far my skin looks very fresh! The colour is much more even then it was prior and most of the milia have disappeared. The skin over the scars is still peeling away but the scars do seem flatter. I do require another 3 or 4 treatments on my leg and another treatment on my nose which will be spaced 4 weeks apart, I was aware of this prior to beginning the first treatment.
     
    COST: $960 (1 treatment 2 areas)
    TOTAL TREATMENT TIME: 1hr 45mins
    TOTAL RECOVERY TIME: 7 days, could return to work on day 3 if you work indoors and don’t mind looking like Freddie Kruger.
     
    Pics will be available to gallery friends, I will include pics from each day over the last 7 as well as some pics during the treatment.
