Name of Surgeon and Date of Surgery




  1. So let me start off by saying I’m getting a revision done no matter what. I’m coming here as a last resort because every time I ask on reddit people say I’m crazy or that my nose looks fine but I know for a fact it really doesn’t because in reality it looks worse in every day life than in pictures. I got my rhinoplasty in April 2019 I believe? I was 18 years old and had no real experience with any kind of surgery, let alone a cosmetic one. Thinking back, I probably should’ve researched more and should’ve been more assertive about what I wanted, but when the doctor edited my nose to

  3. Hi guys, This is my first post here, and I'm looking for some general opinions & feedback. I'm planning to get chin surgery & rhinoplasty combined, but I'm not entireley sure about which option I'll be going with yet: Sliding Genioplasty, or Implant? I've been researching both for quite a long time now, and been given conflicting information by the various doctors I've contacted about it. Some are saying Genioplasty, for it's benefits of controlling projection and/or length, while others are saying Implant for it's easier operation, cost saving, and acheiving more
  4. Hi all, I'm a long time browser of the site and a first-time poster. Ive been interested in augmentation surgery for years now and I finally feel ready to make a move forward in my journey. I've called a few clinics and have found Dr Mayson, Dr Hunt and Dr Moradi to be in my top 3. I haven't booked in a consult with either of these Dr's yet as I am so unsure! Does anyone have experience with these Dr's? I'm leaning towards Dr Moradi because his staff seem so helpful and his work looks amazing but I was a little concerned that his consult time was only 30 mins in length? Dr Mayson's c
  5. Just wondering if this is normal , I'm 5 weeks post op and my sternum is still quite raised/swollen it's still a little tender but not painful or anything like that but I would have thought by now that all the swelling would be gone.
  6. ** rewritten here because I originally posted this in the wrong section ** Hi lovely ladies (and Mums in particular) I have recently had breast augmentation surgery and am very happy with everything 'up there'. As a mum of two children with no plans to have more I am now considering having other areas of my post-baby body corrected, I had two caesareans! Namely, hips, bottom and stomach - I would like to look at liposuction. Or is it liposculpture? Can anyone here explain the difference between the two and, if you had it, where you went (Sydney NSW preferably), why you chose tha
  7. Ok ladies I was just wondering if any of you were told that you would need a lift as well with implants and how many of you could do it in one surgery? I have my consult with dr eddy dona in October and have booked the surgery for November but I'm so worried I won't be able to have the size I want and will just have scars please help
  8. Hi there, I'm 34 years old girl based in Adelaide SA - no children. Surgery - BOTH Majora & Minora I have been bothered by my lifetime of discomfort/pain whilst sitting, standing, walking, riding bicycles - it gets stuck 'down there', chaffing and removing my underwear hurts! Don't get me started on the attempts to tuck it in and the toilet paper issues... ? Its absolutely embarrassing to see the bulge & outline in my workout pants - I'm restricted to selected Lorna Jane pants. All can see everything through my bikini bottoms - I have about 15 pairs in effort to find a
  9. Hi all, I'm all new at this forum and have been seeing some great feedback. I've just booked my BA consult with Dr Miroshnik and after enquiring by email the standard wait was 4-6 weeks to get an appointment which I was happy with. I called to book in and the earliest was 12 weeks! So if you're looking to get into Dr M I'd book in for a consult sooner rather than later.. I'm excited though! Dr M looks like he produces some AMAZING results and does just what I'm looking for in the 'Natural Look' BA. If anyone has booked in or has had a BA with Dr M I would love to know your experien
  10. I'm 31, 163cm 59kg and currently 12B. I've been considering implants for quite some time and now that I'm finished having children I'm almost ready. Just a few things I need advice on, from people who've been through this. Basically I'm worried about recovery time. I have 2 children (1 and 5) who need me to carry/lift them. Also I'm worried about all the house duties that require my attention, particularly hanging out washing. I plan to have surgery when I have 4 weeks off work, so am not too worried about the work side of things. It's all the home duties that I'm concerned about. I will also
  11. Hey! So I'm completely new to this but I'd really appreciate you ladies recommendations and advice when it comes to breast augmentations. Just wanting recommendations of surgeons in South Australia, or any interstate if they are worth travelling to I'm also wanting advice on the difficulties you've and I may face, how to chose my size, shape and placement of my new boobis. I'm currently a 10B and hoping for a D or full C cup as im a small build (159cm and 47kg) Thanks in Advance ladies ??

  13. Hi girls! Just wondering if there are any girls who have had a breast augmentation by Mark Ashton? what look were you after and did you achieve that look? any comments on the experience etc? I'm 168cm, 50kg, flat as a pancake 8A cup and hoping for a natural look after ba. I've got my consultation with him this week :-)
  14. Hi everyone!! I'm just a little anxious about everything... I had my first consultation with my surgeon in Perth today and I am about 170cm, 62kg, with an A/B cup at the moment... I think he said by BWD is about 13cm. Was playing around with implant sizes, and I thought I was quite happy with the 385cc implant size he had in his office of a different brand, but then said that the 415cc of the natrelle allergan silicon textured 415cc was going to essentially look the same (didnt have an example in his office of the 415cc) and that I have broad enough shoulders and am curvy enough around the hip
  15. hey everyone :-) Ive been researching for years about rhinoplasty and I've finally decided to bite the bullet and book a consolation to get the ball rolling. yippee. Only problem is i can't decide onna surgeon? Any advice would be very much appreciated! It would be a reduction rhinoplasty I've narrowed it down to dr Mirosnik in Sydney and Dr Hunt from Sydney/Wollongong. Im 7 hours from sydney and dr Mirosnik has told me i would need to stay in Sydney 7 days and return at 14 to have the splint removed. Dr Hunt has said stay 1x day and return at 7 days post op to have the splint removed. The
  16. So I'm booked in for septo-rhinoplasty this week with Ian Carlisle, has anyone on this forum had rhinoplasty with him? What was your experience like & are you happy with your new nose? I'm having my bump removed, tip lifted and more defined, and a graft put in the tip as my columella is retracted. The main things I'm nervous/concerned about are that I don't know what to expect in terms of recovery and it I'll be in a lot of pain or discomfort, & I'm worried my splint will come off & I won't like my new nose I'm aware that it takes a few months for swelling to go down. Does anyone
  17. Hi ladies! I am new here and I am currently getting my deposit together so I can book my BA with The Cosmetic Institute. I am hoping for a full C/small D cup on my petite frame and most likely going to go with moderate profile. So excited!!! Has anyone used the Lorna Jane seamless bras for post op? the ones with the boob cups in each side, not just a regular sports bra.I seen them in store today and I'm about to start getting prepared for my surgery so I was wondering if anyone would know how the support is in these bras etc? They are a lot cheaper than most of the Post-Op bras I have
  18. Hi guys I am trying to get approved for a loan before August as I originally planned to have my BA done in August... now it's looking as though I might need to wait a bit longer but I'm feeling so impatient. I have banked with CBA for over 10 years and I already have a variable rate personal loan which has around 4 years left on it. I now want to have my loan changed to a fixed rate as I'm getting charged 16.9% interest! And would like to use the extra funds to pay for part of my breast augmentation and a few other personal things. I have never really had any savings but if I do I
  19. Hi I am new here but am trying to find info in BA i am just starting my research and man is it an overload but i am still trying to decide between choosing to have my procedure here in Australia or overseas with one of the medical agencies i have seen all over the internet. As you all know this is not a decision to make lightly so i am looking for as much information and feedback as possible. the Good, the bad and the ugly if you have any feedback on any part of your experience at all no matter how big or small please share it with me. Thanks
  20. Hi guys, I’m new to this forum so sorry if these questions have already been answered. I would just like to know some personal experiences of any one who had a breast augmentation at tci parra with dr Duong. Things like pain after surgery, what anaesthetics they used ect. I am from Brisbane so I will be travelling down, what are some good places to stay close to the clinic? How far away was your consult from the day you booked it? Also, if anyone has used Maccredit or a loan for this procedure could you please give me some advice and feedback Thanks heaps!
  21. Hi, I'm new to this forum and signed up because I need some opinions on sizing My breast augmentation is booked in for January the 19th 2015, so it's a 7 week countdown now woooo! I'm very excited, but my indecision on the size is stressing me a little. My surgeon was kind enough to order both sizes while I decide. I should preface this with some stats... I'm currently an A cup 172cm tall and my weight is roughly 70kgs I am not seeking big boobs really, I just want them to be in proportion with my body. I also want them to look as natural as possible, so I am going with anatomic
  22. Hi ladies! I booked in my BA 6 months ago for the 3rd of October. I now have a charity ball to attend the weekend after and a wedding 2 weekends after. I am freaking out that I will be a walking zombie or be in too much pain to attend. I know everyone's experiences and pain thresholds are different but I was hoping for a few opinions. It would be great to know how people where feeling at the 1 week and 2 week stages (eg 1-10 pain). Unfortunately I am unable to move my op date due to work annual leave restrictions.
  23. Hi guys So i am 11 days pre op. Im going in in the 29th September to have 335cc anatomical textured 'Natrelle' implants under the muscles. Im soooooo excited! I have just finished organising time off work. I work 2 jobs: first job - CLEANER. I have organised to take 2 full weeks off. Im a little worried that won't be enough but there is no way i can afford to take anymore than that.. Any thoughts on this from people that work a fairly physical job? Second job - BASS PLAYER IN A BAND. So this job i play every weekend in a rock covers band. Usually for about 3 hours each gig with
  24. Hi Ladies, I'm looking into getting my breasts done and have heard such great things about Dr Phil Richardson. Just wondering if some of you could give me some information on him, how your procedures went, good and bad, pain, cost, etc. And any women that can recommend any other doctors, I'm from Brisbane so any information would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
  25. Hi. I am planning on getting a breast augmentation later this year. I am 163cm and 48kg with 10A bra size. I am after a full 10C. But I know it's hard to predict bra size outcome. I am just wondering if there's anyone out there with similar specs that could tell me what CCs you got and what bra size you end up being. We're you happy with the size post op? Or wish you gone bigger or smaller
