  1. Oh heeey! I finally met with Dr Connell in April and it was confirmed I did infact have tuberous breasts - there was a reason why they are so small and (to me) ugly I instantly loved Dr Connell as he was honest and made me feel incredibly comfortable. He took photos to be sent off to Medicare to be covered for Tuberous Breast Deformity. My surgery is in August with my next appointment being late July. I am incredibly excited yet terrified/nervous etc. My questions to you are; - Have you had surgery with Dr Connell for tuberous breasts correction? - Are you happy with the results? - How long did it take for Medicare to approve your case (if it was approved)? - Were you notified that you had been approved? Thanks!
  2. Hi everyone, I had a consultation with Dr Phoon (based in Sydney) from the Park Clinic two days ago and have also been in communication with someone from CosMedi Tour Australia. I am really quite confused on what to do next and I am desperately seeking advice. Dr Phoon was incredibly professional and the entire consultation process was flawless. I was very nervous going in as this is the first time I had ever seen anyone about my breasts (aside from my GP). Dr Phoon spent a lot of time explaining things, was kind and did everything he could to make me feel comfortable. After taking a look at my breasts he told me I had the tuberous breast deformity...I can't say that i'm surprised as I always knew my breasts weren't normal but having it confirmed was bitter sweet. Dr Phoon recommended Mentor implants, 330cc, along with fat grafting to round out my shape. My quote just came through and its close to $17,000. I knew it would be pricey but this is more than I can afford now, although - I fully trust Dr Phoon and his team in regards to their pricing and fees. I am certain I want to go through with this, its just a matter of saving the funds. I also sent through my pictures to CosMedi Tour and I received back a quote of around $8000. The quote I received mentioned the following, but no mention of 'tuberous breasts' - "As you have a tight lower pole (distance from your nipple to breast fold) and very wide set breast tissue, the firmer gel Teardrop implant is recommended to push up your natural breast tissue to provide you with more upper pole fullness. This will create a closer cleavage and more ‘side boob’, whilst maintaining upper pole fullness, due to the dimensions of the implant." I have heard that CosMedi Tour (Sydney) use the Dr's from Park Clinic as their surgeons, so this would be Dr Phoon and Dr Moradi (he was my second choice for consultation). I am now thinking it would be worth going through CosMedi Tour Australia (Sydney) to get my procedure done as they will be using the two surgeons I was interested in anyway. But for the price of $8000 I am a little skeptical...does anyone have any experience with CosMedi Tour? I'd love to go direct with Dr Phoon, I am going to start saving more so that I can do this, but just curious on the price difference. Any help would be so greatly appreciated!
  3. I've struggled for years about the shape of my boobs. They are a floppy triangle shape that curve around the outside and my nipples are far too low and basically face each other. I had always put it down to simply being a late grower or because I lost 30kg (even though they still were misshapen and underdeveloped before I lost weight) but through research I've come to the conclusion that they are tuberous. I'm only 19 and this deformity is causing so much emotional distress and self acceptance/conscious issues that I keep finding myself depressed with how my body looks. I wanted to know if this is more common than I think with other women who have tuberous breasts and if they have found a good, experienced surgeon (in Melbourne) who has given them proper shape and fullness. And who has helped them with medicare claims as well. I've seen some prices go as high as 20K and I have to rely heavily on my parents for financial support, who were completely shocked by the likely 15-20K price range. It would be amazing if I could find ways to help me pay for it. I already know there's medicare but I've read a lot about people also using their private health insurance? I'm desperate at this stage to find a good surgeon who can help with this specific problem and has experience with it so really any tips you have me are really greatly appreciated.
  4. Just wondering how much everyone has paid for tuberous breast surgery and how much you got back from PHI and Medicare. Also any other tips would be appreciated.
  5. Hello, I was wondering if there are any Adelaide ladies who have got their tuberous breast correction from Dr M who would be happy to meet and chat with me>!?
  6. I’m new on here! im booked next month for the op, I have been diagnosed with mild tuberous breasts. They have always bothered me. if you’ve had the correction for tuberous breasts, are you happy with your results? Super nervous! Is it really worth it? im early 20’s petite, they suggest 325cc silicone high profile for me. and on a side note.. if you have had implants for a long period of time, any complications you’ve experienced? How long did you implants last before you had to have them redone? thanks!:)
  7. Hi, So this is my first post but I've had tuberous breast all throughout my life and I'm really ready to do something about them. I have read amazing reviews on Dr M and I feel like he's basically the only way to go for tuberous breast surgery. Just wondering if anyone could share their story with the medicare rebate side of things? Like applying for one and how much they got (if you're comfortable sharing). I really need this as mine are quite badly tuberous so I'm hoping I can get just of extra help in the $$$ side of things. Also can anyone recommend a Adelaide doctor that would be good to go to for tuberous breast enquiries/referral to Dr M? Thanks Ladies!!!! P.S anyone thats had a tuberous breast surgery with Dr M- I would love to hear your stories !!!! thanks
  8. I have been liaising with a cosmetic surgeon in Cairns who does not have any direct experience correcting tuberous breasts, which i've since decided not to go with her because of her inexperience and poor contact and communication with her office ( for example, not having emailed replied to at all or waiting 3 months for contact ect.. ect) I got my photos sent to medicare and waited 8 months for approval ( has anyone else experienced waiting this long for their photo assessments to be approved, or to get word on them?) Nevertheless, it was approved and these are the item numbers i received. 45556 45524 51303 I replied to the email from the surgeons office asking for some clarification around what this all means in the context of money and coverage with private health and never got a reply ( sent on the 3rd of november). This surgeon told me i needed to procedures, the first one to realign and change the nipple on the bigger breast then 3 months later have the implants put itn I am looking into Dr Paul Belt Dr Ellis Choy Dr Miroshnick. I will upload photos at a later stage. I was wondering if anyone could provide some personal experiences or advice around what surgeon to go with, whether or not they required 1 or 2 procedures, and what these medicare numbers mean? also, if you have had 2 procedures, do you pay upfront for everything for the first then get some back, then pay upfront for the second then get some back.. ect ect. I also contacted my private health insurere and they wont give me any information without supplying the name and date of surgery; who the anesthetist is and what hospital ect. ANY information about any of this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks lovely ladies
  9. Is $30k a lot for a tuberous augmentation? I've been reading that it's more around the $20k for a lot of you. I don't even think I'm that severe :/
  10. Hi there, I'm new to cosmetic journey. Im due to have my mild tuberous breasts corrected in January 2018 with dr Ellis Choy in Sydney. My breasts are currently fairly wide set and I'm worried that my implants will sit super wide also. I have a very small and slim chest build. Im 163cm, 50kg, B cup. The measurements we spoke about were 345cc in bigger breast and 390cc in smaller breast, anatomical implants, dual plane placement. I don't want to be too big for my body frame and haven't had my pre op sizers appointment yet, so will try on sizers then. But wanted to get some input from others and maybe even see some before and after pictures from my fellow wide gap ladies!
  11. hey everyone! This is my first post here so I hope I'm doing this right. I just had a phone consultation with Dr. Miroshnik and he told me I had Grade 2 Tuberous Breasts and would need TWO incisions (in each breast) to correct them. One under the crease to insert the implant, and one periareolar incision (around the areola) to correct the puffy/coney-ness of my nipples, and I believe he will also be reducing their size as well. I was just kinda taking it all in during the consultation (and to be honest he seemed a little rushed- my appointment did run 30 minutes late, and it was nearing the end of the day, so I'm sure he was just pressed for time and a bit stressed- as you would be!) I'm sure he has his reasons but it just didn't occur to me to ask WHY at the time! If he was making an incision around the nipple anyway, why not just insert the implant through there? Any other ladies out there that have also been suggested or had two separate incisions for their tuberous correction? Or does anyone have any suggestions as to why he might not insert the implant through the nipple? Thanks in advance!
  12. Hi all. I had an online consultation with Dr Tavakoli recently and was required to send photos. I always knew there was something wrong with my breasts and that I did not like them but I was relieved to find out that there is actually a deformity. I know that might sound strange but it made me feel justified for being so self conscious of them. Anyway, I found this website after doing some research on tuberous breasts and it has been so helpful. I decided to go ahead and book my surgery for early next year. I could not be more confident with my choice in surgeon, i just love his work. He really is the boob master. So I am flying down from Perth to have my surgery. I was planning on having a consultation here locally but I have decided against it. I will be getting anatomical implants, fat grafting and fat scoring??? Has anyone else had this done? Is it more painful then normal breast augmentation? I am very excited but also nervous because this will be my first time having any kind of surgery. Ive never been under anaesthetic eeek. My beautiful mum is coming down with me from perth to look after me and she has been so supportive. She knows how much this means to me. Thanks for reading and Im looking forward to getting to know you all some more
  13. Hi girls, I was wondering if anyone has had their tuberous breasts corrected in Melbourne, and which surgeon did they choose? Please tell me all about your experiences in detail. I am desperate to get mine done, and I have no idea where to start. Thank you!
  14. Hello, im coming up to my June surgery date and and considering cancelling the whole thing I am going to Sydney from Adelaide to have Surgery with Dr M and they have just sent me a quote that totals around $20,000 this is just crazy for me seeing as I could spend this on moving out for travelling. Im going back and forth with the idea that id rather be unhappy forever than pay that amount for something thatll never be perfect (Im a perfectionist) and if they don't turn out as hoped they will continue to disrupt my life. I feel im in between a rock and a hard place in deciding wether to go ahead. My breast have heald me back forever, maybe I should just force myself to live with them. Ps sorry for all this moaning. I need guidance
  15. I've booked in to have my BA with Dr Ellis Choy in April! If anyone else is having surgery around this time I would love to hear from you and share thoughts, advice, feelings! I'm having a mild/moderate tuberous fixed. 34, Mum of 2.
  16. Going to see Szalay at precision clinic in Brisbane tomorrow after seeing a PS last year. I am dubious going to a cosmetic surgeon as I am slightly tuberous. can a cosmetic surgeon lower inframammary folds or score under nipples to reduce puffiness? I have him fix tuberous breasts by just using anatomical implants over muscle and they look great. has anyone had any experience with him? thanks x x
  17. I'm looking for anyone who has had their tube boobs fixed. I hate mine they are so ugly. I'm looking to find someone in adelaide and who you went to and a price. I've been given a price from Dr Tavakoli which was more then I expected. Of course it's my luck it would cost more, would be nice that us who have a deformed breast could get more of a rebate from Medicare. I'm going to find out about Dr M as well.
  18. Hi, First time poster here! I am 26 years old, 174cm with Tuberous Breasts - less than an A cup currently. I have been extremely self conscious about the size and shape of my breasts for years. I have only just been officially diagnosed with Tuberous Breasts and was initially really upset but now I'm feeling relived to finally have a diagnosis. I had a consultation with Dr Luke Stradwick on the Gold Coast and he has suggested 295-370cc tear drop implants placed under the muscle. My only issue is that I have not had kids yet and would like to in the next few years. My chances of being able to breastfeed anyway aren't great but I won't know until it happens. Is there anyone who has been in the same position? Does breastfeeding after an augmention/reconstruction ruin the look of your new boobs?? Any advice and help would be greatly appreciated!
  19. Hey ladies! So I'm now 3 months post op and wanted to share my experience with you all I had always been self conscious about my breasts and always thought of breast augmentation but I wasn't happy with so many other areas of my body that I put it aside until now. I then lost around 10kg, so I decided to get an augmentation to reward myself and be able to feel 100% happy. It wasn't until I started sending my photos so surgeons that I found out I was tuberous. I didn't even know what this meant but now I had an explanation for why I never felt comfortable with my breasts. I contacted Dr Benjiman Norris in March with my concerns and was surprised to get an email back that night from his personal email account. The next day I spoke with Shannon and arranged a consult. My first impression was the practice is beautiful and everyone was lovely. Dr Norris was very genuine, he made me feel at ease and explained my abnormalities as I had never heard of it before. He was very adamant about me not making a rushed decision which is something that I respected. I then took home I sizer so I could have a think about what I would like if I was to proceed. I was really happy with my consult so over the next few days I booked my surgery for early May. Leading up to the surgery I had one more consult so that I could chose my size. There are so many pictures of before and afters on the internet that I was so confused about what size I needed. I initially chose a 370cc and I am so glad that we ended up going with a 445cc after that second consult. On the day of my surgery I was pretty nervous. I suffer from anxiety so I explained this to my anesthetist (Dr Michael Rose) he and his assistant were so reassuring! I actually fainted twice while Dr Norris was marking me (embarrassing!) but Dr Rose was able to give me something to calm my nerves and we got there in the end. For the first few days I felt really tight and looking at my implants they looked so weird. They were far apart and pointy and I was pretty freaked out. I had to wear a stabilizer band as well and I was lucky I had a week off work while everything settled. I took photos every few days so I could compare and they were starting to look more normal every day. The main pain that I experienced wasn't the implants themselves it was more like a weight on my chest. This stayed for around 3 weeks. Mainly painful in the morning when I was getting out of bed but once I had moved around I was ok. Now, 3 months post they are so amazing and I am so happy. It really does show that they are going to be so different to day 1! I had regular check ups with Dr Norris and his nurse to change my dressings and check how I was. I had a scare that I had an infection and Dr Norris replied to my text straight away to reassure me that I was ok. I am really happy with my results and am so thankful to Dr Norris and his team. I have so much more confidence now and I feel like this is the best thing I ever did! My stats were 445cc teardrop
  20. Hi ladies, I am two days out from surgery for tuberous breast correction with Dr Benjamin Norris. I'm having 310cc, under the muscle, textured teardrop implants, moderate profile. I am also having an ariola reduction. I am currently barely an A cup so am hoping that I will reach a C but I'm not so sure... Does anyone know if this will is possible?? I will post an update after my surgery with some photos. Wish me luck
  21. Hey there this is my first post in any forum group - I'm abit nervous but here we go.. I've decided I'm finally brave enough to get a BA, whilst that is the first step it gets more daunting.. As I have a come to learn I've got tuberous breasts.. After lots of research I've found Dr Miroschnik and I love his before and afters! I'm going to book a phone consult with him very soon -- I'd love to hear any feedback from others who've had the pleasure to meet this lovely man. Or anyone who understands the tubular struggles
  22. Hi Gals! Has anyone here applied for item number 45559 and gotten it approved? I would love to hear about girls who have applied for this, whether it was accepted or not - as I am interested in the grade of severity they accept for tuberous breasts. Thanks, Peach <3
  23. My op is on the 15th, ive been dreaming about having 'normal' boobs ever since my boobs started to form as a younger girl. You should know im a little OCD, I want them to be perfect, from hearing from others and looking at pictures I am coming to the realisation I will never have a perfect/normal looking result. Will I still be happy to have my tuberous boobs fixed even if its not like ive dreamed about.... I also am not at my ideal weight and want to loose weight after surgery which is not recommended which also makes me sad. AHHH SO STRESSED AND WORRIED, I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO Am I just freaking out, ive wanted this for 9 years and know im freaking out about it. HALP HAHA
