  1. Hi, I have been researching this for a while and am quite desperate to have a BR, lift and TT. I have been told by my health fund, HCF, that they will not pay for the theatre, hospital or anaesthetists fees as the TT is not medically necessary but the BR is. Has anyone else had this problem and is there a solution as I do not want to have 2 surgeries?
  2. Hello there Ladies (& Gents i guess!) I finally made the plunge and had a small reduction / lift (mainly removal of excess skin) in August 2015. WOOOHOO, BEST thing i have ever done!! Good-bye saggy boobs Right from the get go my recovery has been slow, bruised a lot more than 'normal' etc. I feel fine, have had no bad pain or infections etc. I have been taking it easy and doing as I am told in terms of limitations with returning to exercise etc. I have anchor + lollipop scars However! A month post op i had a small 'split' just under the nipple when i was in Bali for a wedding (worst timing) - there was no pain and I got stitched back up when I returned to Perth. At this stage i was still on weekly visits to the surgeons room since i was recovering slow, but the skin still hasnt fully headed back together even now the stitches are dissolved.... I also have a patch under one of my breasts near the junction of the scars which is almost like it is 'dead' it isnt on the actual scar that it all healed fine. After all of this going on and carefully monitoring by my surgeon he has suggested i go back into surgery to have these bits removed. He said it is likely it has occurred due to blood supply to the area (cant remember if those are his exact words) - and a number of other stressors my bodys been though in the past year. Has anyone had a similar experience with recovery? or any tips?! Feeling a little disheartened i need to go under the knife again xox
  3. Hey all.... has anyone heard of a Dr Sean Nicklin at Randwick? my 20 year old twin cousins with 10j (!!!!) are looking to get a BR and their mum got them a consult with this chap, but I can not find a SINGLE review or before/after picture for his work....which makes me a little suss! i want them to go to my guy Dr Miroshnik, but because there are two of them, that is a very hefty price. This chap does reconstructions, but IMO that doesn't mean he will do a good reduction. Anyone have any input here??
  4. So yesterday was the day! I had 660g from the left breast removed and 620 from the right and am already so happy with the results! still got the drains in and not enjoying that- am finding I have sharp pinchy pains where they're entered and can't wait to get them out. Swelling as started today, will see if I'm allowed to start icing. im surprised at how much mobility I have?! It's achy but I don't feel restricted in my arm movement at all, which considering what my surgeon told me I was expecting to be moving like a t-rex! Blood pressure is low- 91/40 which is even low for me so nearly passed out when I went to the bathroom. Anyone got any tips for recovery and how to speed it along? More than happy to stay another night in (they're looking at tomorrow morning for discharge) also how painful is it when they remove the drains?! Eek!
  5. Hi All... just wanted to post about my experience so far with my saggy boob journey. I breastfed for 2 years and went up to a 10i cup which then deflated to an empty and sad 10f-g (photos of before and after in my profile). I was hoping to have a small implant put in to fill them up and avoid the anchor scar of the BL so booked consults with Dr Tavakoli and Dr Miroshnik and also Dr ****** (advertised as cheapest implants in sydney) My first was with Dr T who was so kind, empathetic and professional and he told me my tissue would not hold an implant well and that in a year or so they would drop again, he suggested I get a second opinion with Dr m. He also said there were plenty of surgeons who would do the implant with no concern as to how they would look in a year.I then booked a consult with Dr M. Dr T was wonderful and I felt he would be an incredible choice for surgery. In the mean time I saw Dr B, who immediately agreed to do the implants. I decided straight away not to go with him.He did not have the knowledge or the professional manner that Dr T did. Then i had my consult with Dr M who said the exact same thing as Dr T, both said for my own benefit I should not get an implant. I was so sad as I was terrified of having badly shaped breasts from a lift with the addition of scars. Anyway, I booked in with Dr M as his before/after shots showed the most work like mine and i figured i couldnt hate my boobs anymore than i already did, so i went for it. I had my surgery 2 days ago. I can not even explain how happy i am with the results. I had very very difficult boobs to work with, so saggy and stretch marks and terrible collagen, I thought he could only get an ok result, but they are AMAZING! seriously! I can not believe they are actually my boobs! Granted they are still swollen so they look like they have implants in them, but the shape is so round and perfect and he kept so much of my tissue (as requested by me) so they are not too small. Anyone looking at a BL or BR could do no better than going to him in my very well researched opinion (and i am a nurse so i am extra fussy!). He was professional, kind, empathetic and an absolute artist. So feel free to friend request me to have a sticky beak at the pics if you are interested in his work because if I had have seen these before afters at the start it would have saved me a lot of time researching everyone else! haha Yay for boobies!
  6. Hey all....so can anyone that had a BL without implants tell me if their boobies got smaller many months after surgery? I mean, when did all of the swelling go down? I had my surgery 2.5 weeks ago and feel as though the swelling has completely gone and am happy with my 10DD size, but I am wondering over the next few months if they will get smaller??
