  1. Thank you ladies for all your advice. I just realised in the early hours of the morning that I didn't give any stats. Silly me! I was a B cup previously and my surgeon believes I am now a DD. I got 435cc Brazilian unders. Now I know this sounds big (and it is definitely an improvement from the original chest-puppies) they really aren't noticable at all. I will take some photos with and without clothes and show you what I mean.
  2. Hi Girls, I'm probably going to sound like a spoilt little brat, so I just want to say that I am completely aware of it and don't mean to come across so ungrateful. I'm just having a bit of moment. So it will be 6 weeks tomorrow since I had my B.A. I am happy I had it done and very grateful for the improvement. I couldn't ask for a better surgeon or a better recovery. Everything was a breeze. But over the past couple of weeks I can't help thinking 'Is this it?' I really don't feel they are big enough in size - even though I chose the maximum size recommended for my body type. You really can't tell at all that there is any improvement when I wear clothes. Even all my work uniforms still fit me fine! Not too snug or stretched in the breast area. I've even had people say to me 'Oh? You've had them done? I would never have noticed unless you told me.' There are moments when I want to cry because I'm just not looking like the way I envisioned. I don't feel like the buxom babe I thought I would look like. All I can think to myself is that if invasive cosmetic surgery isn't fixing me, then what will? I'm sorry for the whinge, but I really do feel so depressed about this. I'm forever going to be a 'plain-Jane'. Nothing special, nothing sexy.
  3. Thanks ladies It's taken forever, but I have finally posted some after pics for you to see Im on day 13 now and I feel fabulous. I had my check up with Dr Harwood on Monday and he said everything was perfect. No need for any painkillers, I've been just as active and at the gym like before the op (no upper body weights though) and feel great. Thanks again to all you lovely ladies who shared their experiences and helped me through everything.
  4. Hi I've seen ur only 2 days post op! Would love to follow ur progress if u don't mind accepting FR? What size, type & placement did you get? Hope ur not in too much pain! :)

  5. Hello ladies, So today was boobie day. I couldn't believe it. After 5 months from my first consultation with Dr Kim Harwood I was back there again today waiting for it to really begin. I would love to share my story with you all as there have been so many ladies whose stories have given me comfort and confidence and I think it would be awesome to do the same for someone else. So naturally I had not a wink of sleep on Thursday night. I tossed and turned with my feelings ranging from excitement to nervousness to doubt and even fright. But I kept remembering that this procedure has been on my wish list for years and I wasn't going to back out now. In the morning I had a nice, long hot shower and scrubbed myself with the antibacterial soap the clinic had given me. I was allowed to wear a bit of make up and thought it would be a good idea to do so, as I would rather not scare the nurses so early in the morning and also because I'm a spazaholic, my partner and I arrived at the clinic a half hour early. Luckily Kim was already there and he let us in and told us he would be with me in just a moment. Now, I can't be 100% sure, but I think BeeNew walked in about 10 mins after me! BeeNew, if that was you I apologize for not saying hello. It's incredible what nerves can do to you! Kim went over all my post op drugs with me, signed the concent form etc. and made sure I fully understood what was about to happen. During the whole time he was so caring, thoughtful and told me that he was going to look after me. My hands were cold and clammy and he held onto them while telling me he would look after me the same way he did his daughter when she got hers done. I now started to feel rather excited and the nerves subsided a wee bit. Margaret then introduced herself to me and we headed into another room to try on post op bras. She then asked me to get changed into some very sexy surgical attire (it was hideous hahaha) and made me wear little blue booties. My partner came in to see me and just laughed saying 'how do you all expect me to keep my hands off her?' yes, he thinks he's a comedian my man Soon after that a nurse called me into the actual surgery room. I'm not going to sugar-coat it, but this was when I started to get quite scared. Kim came over to me and said that he was going to take some photos and draw me up. I think he has said this to a few girls before, but he told my partner "Measure twice, cut once." Everyone had a bit of a chuckle. Kim must have sensed that I was starting to stress a bit so he held both my hands and told me everything was going to be fine. He said he was so confident in my size choice as it fit beautifully and there was no need to make a second crease etc. After the pictures were taken, I was escorted to the bed where I was going to be operated on. I lay down with my left arm outstretched and Dr Kim gave me some anti nausea meds while the nurses hooked me up to all kinds of monitors. I started to feel a bit shakey so Kim said 'I'm going to give you a glass of wine which will end up feeling like three." Oh. My. Gosh. That stuff was brilliant. I didn't get all head-spinny like he suggested, but was calm and relaxed and just wanted to shut my eyes and sleep. All the while I had Dr Kim holding my hand and my partner stroking my hair. The last thing I remember was my partner saying 'I love you Kelly...' and off into la-la land I went. I then awoke in recovery. Fully dressed with biscuits and a cup of tea waiting for me. Apparently I was able to tell them I wanted white with one but I can't remember that I can't believe how incredible it was to wake up with no pain, not one bit! And when I did wake up and was coherent, there was my man sitting to my left with a get well teddy bear, and Dr Harwood on my right stroking my forehead. I nearly cried with happiness. After a half hour nap I told the nurse I felt great and they let me go home. I've spent most of the afternoon sleeping, keeping up my meds and drinking lots of water. There is a heavy sensation on my chest definitely, but not bad enough to make me cry or regret my decision. I don't think I could've asked for a better experience, or a better surgeon. Dr Kim Harwood is beyond fabulous and I would have no hesitation recommending him to anyone looking for a BA. I can't wait to post some pics on here and show you girls his marvellous work. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my story (sorry for the length, I'm a Gemini who loves a good chat haha). I look forward to posting more of my post op experiences with you soon. KA xoxo
  6. Hi ladies, Well, as you can see from my ticker below, tomorrow is BOOBIE DAY! :D When I first joined this forum, I never expected how valuable and comforting all your advice, opinions, experiences and stories would be. It really has been a blessing to have access to such a wealth of knowledge for my upcoming BA. I have quite a busy evening planned tonight (obviously to keep my mind off things and hopefully get some decent sleep!) so I wanted to say thank you if I don't get the chance to post later on or tomorrow morning. Every single person who has shared their views and experiences has made a difference in my journey. You have given me confidence and the belief that I will be OK. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to personally respond to my posts, to the friend requests and for those of you who have shared your stories for me to trawl over like a boobie stalker hahaha. You have helped one very scared and nervous girl become a confident and self-assured individual. I can't wait to post a good ol' novel of my experience and hopefully help others in their journey to Boobieville:o Thank you very much ladies. See you on the other side xoxo
  7. That's awesome! Fillers and botox is next on my list after the boobies I figure 'What the hell! You only get one body, better make the most of it!' I hope it all goes well for you xo
  8. Thanks BreastsToBe, so you are one of Dr Harwoods girls as well? It's so good to hear stories from his patients So you really did just 'go to sleep'? You weren't awake or anything? I'm afraid of being partially awake and knowing what's going on!
  9. Thanks so much ladies. Your advice has been very helpful. Katems22 - I'm having 435cc Round Brazilians XHP under the muscle
  10. Thanks Bookedin. I'm so scared. I feel like I'm about to poop myself and spew at the same time (TMI I know...)
  11. Thanks KristyKiana and Katems22. I seriously feel as though my stomach is about to turn inside out with anxiety. If I'm feeling this way now, what will I be like on Friday?!
  12. Hi Ladies, I can't believe my time is nearly here! On Friday morning at 7am I go in to see Dr Harwood and will walk out (hopefully!) with my brand new 'girls'. I remember when I had 3 months to go, and now it's 3 days! I know that it is completely normal to be nervous, but I seriously feel like I'm panicking all the time. It has reached a point that when I wake up, I automatically have butterflies and I think '5 more sleeps...4 more sleeps...3 more sleeps...' I can barely stomach anything during the day and I know this is probably not the best way to be taking care of myself pre-op. I am having a terrible time getting to sleep at night as I think about all the pain and discomfort I am likely to experience. Then I start having all the 'What if?' scenarios and start stressing that everything that can go wrong, will go wrong with me. I would really appreciate it if I could have just a few words of wisdom from all the Boobie-Queens out there. Please - any words of advice? Thanks xoxo
  13. Hi BeeNew, congratulations on the new 'girls' I'm very happy to hear that you are doing well, especially after the little scare in the surgery. I think that experience just goes to show how well Dr Harwood and his team managed the situation, and that they are prepared to look after their patients. I am scheduled in with Dr Harwood for next Friday and have been trawling this forum like a stalker hahaha looking for stories on other girls' experiences with him. Your story has really put me at ease and made me feel a lot better about what's to come. I hope you don't mind but I've sent you a friend request Please keep us updated with your recovery progress - would love to hear how you are doing. Take care of yourself lovely xo
  14. Omg ladies! I must say your replies have certainly opened my eyes to the possible pain I could experience. Better going in prepared I reckon. Eeeekkkkk!!
  15. Hey ladies, I have read a lot of posts about the misfortune of dreaded 'morning boob', but I can't seem to track down any info on what it actually FEELS like? I'm 22 sleeps away from my BA (I can't work out how to add a ticker thing at the bottom of my signature so I just update you all in my posts lol) and I am starting to get a little more nervous everyday. I would just like to have some idea on what to expect pain wise. Is the site of your incision painful? Is it the muscle? Oh my...I'm freaking myself out by just writing it lol! I apologies if someone has already written about this before, I just can't seem to find any info on it. Thanks ladies - I always appreciated your helpful info K.A 1988 xx
