  1. Sure will. I meet Dr Love in just over 3 weeks time then I can look at booking in a date for surgery! So excited.
  2. I had my consult with Dr Connell yesterday who was my revision surgeon 10 years ago. He confirmed what I have been suspecting and that’s that I have lateral displacement but he threw me for a loop when he told me I had double bubble. He has suggested Areola reduction, scar revision to stepladder and vertical scar and replace 360cc teardrop implants to 380 or 450cc rounds. Best part is private health insurance will cover everything including his fees as he is only charging me the scheduled fee. He truly is an amazing man and surgeon. My revision will only cost me $500 which is my hospital excess. Next month I meet with his colleague Dr Love to discuss 360 body lift, thigh and arm reduction (excess skin not fat). I will be having my boobs done this year and if financially possible my thighs at the same time. Then next year the 360 body lift and arms.
  3. Thank you @Moderator this is another reason I'm also confused. Sometimes I can pick whether a woman has rounds or anatomicals but then other times I either get it wrong or genuinely can't decide. Think I will just show my surgeon goal pics and see what he says.
  4. With anatomical implants which is what I currently have when lying down they spread apart a bit however they still stay standing up if that makes sense projection wise. If I was to switch to textured rounds would these also do the same since the textured adheres to the muscles and breast tissue? Or do they flatten out as they aren't quite as cohesive I found when I examined them years ago in a consult? Having a really hard time deciding which implants would suit me better and the look I'd like to achieve. I like a rounded shape but not completely bolted on looking (please don't take offence I like all boobs but it's just not the look for me). I like when the cleavage area and upper pole is rounded However side on topless there's a slight sloped look. Sorry if I'm not explaining myself too well. I just feel my surgeon who did my revision and who I have an upcoming consult with will try to recommend anatomicals again as they are his preference and in a year he said he had only inserted 3 sets of round implants as it was the patient requests. Trying to be as informed as possible with the differences between the 2 types of implants.

  6. My redo surgeon sent me a referral to have an ultrasound done but I've just not had the time or money to go. I've read elsewhere that MRIs can give false positive results for rupture. I did have an ultrasound on both boobs going back a few years as I was getting some weird pain but apart from showing a lump in my breast there was nothing wrong with my implants. I chose to have a biopsy (fine needle aspiration) done on the lump to be safe and luckily the lump was benign.
  7. So today I made my goal weight! 55.1kgs so 100 grams off. Total loss of 63kgs which is an entire person. Just wanted to share as I'm so happy and proud of myself.
  8. I will be doing the body lift and boobs at the same time. If same to also do thighs I will but if not they will have to wait for another time. No it's not with him. The surgeon I had a bad experience with is now retired.
  9. Dr Robert Love for the 360 body lift, thighs and possibly arms. Dr Tony Connell for boobs - he did my revision after another Perth plastic surgeon gave me terrible results, I suffered complications and he denied anything was wrong. I don't think I trust anyone else to do my lift or replacement of implants especially since I've experienced how it can go wrong even with a plastic surgeon.
  10. I just wanted to report that I have now lost 61kgs and am only 2.1kgs off the goal weight I set myself. Having weight loss surgery was the best thing I've ever done for myself. I just couldn't Lose the weight without help or worse would yoyo the exact same 2kgs. I have 2 x consults the first in late February and the other early March. I'm wanting 360 body lift, thigh lift with lipo, breast lift and replacement of implants. While happy now having the plastic surgery part of it done will really complete my transformation. It feels amazing to be able to do things I couldn't do before such as spend a day walking around the zoo and I absolutely love that I can not only walk into any shop I want but can wear clothes I want to actually wear and not just wear something because it's the least ugly thing big enough to fit me.
  11. I had mine done before kids as having children wasn't on the cards but I did tell my surgeon I may change my mind one day. I've got sagging but that happened during pregnancy. I struggled to breastfeed and had to top up due to supply issues and my son having upper lip and tongue ties. I'm having a revision hopefully this year with other work as I've lost over 50kgs. Keep in mind also just because you can breastfeed one baby doesn't mean you will be successful with others. My mum who is all natural exclusively breastfeed me for 18 months. She fed my brother for 5 months but had to top up as he had bad reflux and would power chuck. With my sister she struggled to breastfeed but don't remember exactly how many months she did. So many factors. When are you planning to have kids? My surgeon said if it's within 12 months of the surgery to wait.
  12. Where is the excess weight? If it's all over lipo won't help and you would be better off trying to lose weight. If it's stubborn areas then lipo may be the answer. I can't help with info as it's not something I've looked into personally. I had weight loss surgery in May this year and have lost 54.1kgs and am so close to my goal weight now with 9kgs left to lose. Not saying you need weight loss surgery just sharing what has worked for me but I had a lot to lose. Agree with Pinkbutterfly about checking thyroid, etc. Mine being out of whack due to Hashimoto's Disease was the start of my weight issues. Also where are you located? That would help others to recommend a surgeon 😄
  13. Just wanted to update as it's been awhile. 52.1kgs gone and only 11kgs to get to my goal weight. I'm now a size 10 - 12 depending on the make of the clothes. I weigh less than what I did before I had my first child which is exciting. Im 6kgs off weighing what I did when I first met my husband. Life is good. I'm wearing things and shopping at places I never thought were possible and I'm full of confidence. I can't wait to see how I feel about myself after the 360 body lift and breast revision. It will complete my transformation.
  14. March was the earliest I could get in. They close next week so I'd ring asap before they close for the year.
  15. Dr Tony Connell is amazing. He did my revision 8 years ago. Stemschicky I was actually booked in with your surgeon but think I will cancel my consult. I'm booked with Tony for March (consult) for boobs and with Dr Robert Love for February for 360 body lift. They can work together to do a combined procedure I was told. After your experience I don't think I can trust anyone else with my boobs apart from Tony.
  16. Is he a plastic or cosmetic surgeon? If plastic you will get a rebate from Medicare.
  17. I have damage to my right nipple, it's either hyper sensitive to the point of pain or numb. I expected it to be unbearable but surprisingly it wasn't very painful. I felt the needle it was uncomfortable but not horrible. All good the left will be easy. Nope! The left was way more painful. Yesterday I had them stretched to the correct gauge (14 gauge) as they were pierced at 16 gauge which is incorrect (I should have researched more). The right was more painful being stretched than what it was being pierced with the needle. The left was painful too. I've been told they take 1 year to be fully healed. I'm wearing nursing pads in my bras in case I get some bleeding and to stop rubbing. I'm going braless at night which I never do so they aren't squished in a bra 24/7. I have my consult Wednesday and the ps isn't going to be happy. I asked about nipple piercings and was told he prefers I not have them done pre revision However was told I may not be able to get them pierced post surgery. I've wanted them done for ages and after losing over 40kgs and having less than 20kgs left to lose I feel a lot more body positive even though I feel I'm a bit saggy. I'm also impatient so thought bugger it I'm having them done. Yes I still want a revision but the piercings has changed how I feel about my boobs.
  18. Not sure yet @TheFox as they're still healing so strictly hands off and no saliva or other bodily fluids. I've got barbells but in a few weeks time I'd love to switch them for nipple clickers. Think similar to a septum clicker but unlike septums where the jewellery that goes through the hole can either be curved or straight, nipple clickers are all straight from what I've seen. Yes they do correct inverted nips unless they are grade 3 inverted in which case surgery is the only option.
  19. Just wondering if anyone has their nipples pierced and if so what type of jewellery do you wear eg barbell, clicker, etc? Do you find your jewellery type comfortable, do bras rub or catch certain styles and can you see it through bras? If you don't want to answer here feel free to send me a pm. Thanks
  20. Booked in for early November with Dr Sam Cunneen for my consult. I'm having - 360 body lift, breast lift with replacement of implants, arm lift, thigh lift with lipo. It will have to be 2 lots of surgery. I know he does the vectra scan which will be good to see the excess skin gone. Very excited!
  21. It doesn't sound like Dr M is a good fit for you. Keep researching. I know you said you have had 6 consults, if need be have more. I know it gets expensive but this is your body. It's not like hair where if you get a bad cut it will grow back. I'm in your position where I don't know which surgeon to go with. I plan on consulting with one (I'm in Perth) based on his breast results and also the fact he does the 360 body lift which I need after a huge weight loss (still have 23.7kgs left to lose before surgery). It's a tough choice. I will say listen to your gut feeling. If you haven't consulted with him yet Dr T does a lot of mini boob jobs. Also Dr Dona is amazing. Yes he's known for going big but he does plenty of average sizes too.
  22. I'm 39.6kgs down. Size 14 everywhere including Ice Design. I bought more amazing jeans yesterday, ok 2 x jeans hehe. And a top/dress and more work pants. I went platinum blonde/grey and I've had my bob chopped off into a pixie cut. I feel like a new person!
  23. Best bet would be to consult with a plastic surgeon. 60kgs is a good weight depending on height. It's recommended to be at goal weight before having plastics done which it sounds like you are so well done. They can lipo the stubborn lower belly fat and if necessary tighten your ab muscles.
  24. I just wanted to update that I'm down 33.5kgs and in size 14s including jeans from Valley Girl. I have 29.8kgs to go and I feel incredible. To be able to do fun things as a family like visit the zoo, go to the city, etc and not be in agony just from walking is a major health benefit.
  25. 45% of my excess weight is gone and I'm getting even closer to my goal weight. So I'm wanting 360 body lift, breast lift with replacement of implants and arms done. First question can anyone share consult fee for Dr Sam Cunneen? Second question can you have the Vectra scan done if you already have implants? I'm going to try to book in for September/October for my consult.
