Hi there! I wanted some advice and didn't know who to turn to, so here goes! I've made a tentative booking to have a breast augmentation in December this year (in about 7 weeks), and need to make my final decision by next week. This is something I have really wanted to do (since I was 18 - I'm 27 now), and I'm excited, however at times I feel waves of anxiety about: post-op pain, possible further surgery after kids, life after the boob job, etc. I want to know if anyone else was feeling the same, how they overcame these feelings, and how they feel now that they've gone through with their operation?
Today I had a wonderful consultation with Dr Ellis Choy in Sydney. i felt so comfortable and knew within the first 10 mins that he would be my surgeon. My breasts are slightly saggy and he said I am boarder line but will get great, natural and full results from a BA alone. He has recommended overs and I just wanted to hear from some girls whom have recently had overs- with photos if possible. Also, I have had anxiety disorder from around 3 years. I've gotten better at managing it but obviously surgery brings a lot of anxiety out- anyone else had a BA that could give me some tips? I'm worried my surgery day will come and I will panic and not go into surgery clear minded if that makes sense thanks girls!
Hey im new to the plastic surgery forum and am an interstate patient from perth , travelling to Sydney to have a BA at TCI Bondi wih DR lee . Was wondering if anyone has any reviews and if he is good with his clients , and caring ? He has no photos on the TCI websit when all the other doctors have before and afters? i suffer from anxiety and have to stop taking all of my herbal remembered two weeks before my surgery and two weeks after surgery, is there any reassuring words or any tips to keep the anxiety levels down at the time, I feel great atm but I once I go into the room on the day I have no idea how I'm going to react! Thank you in advance ?
Sorry girls... Bit of a story... I was due to have augmentation on 29 April at a clinic in Cairns (where I live, was going here for convenience due to no one to care for 15 yr old daughter if I went interstate)however, I have cancelled due to the clinic increasing their 'all-inclusive' price each time I spoke with them. I borrowed the amount specified for their 'package' and could not afford the extra costs they were advising everytime I spoke to them. In the end I told them that I felt mislead as none of these 'extra' costs were explained during consult. Anyway... so no new boobies for me yet. I am now looking into going to Sydney, to see either Dr Lim (his work is amazing!) or TCI. I have sent emails and photo's to both. Now I wait to see who is able to assist me with my saggy-baggy, deflated, droopy not-so-fun-bags! I will be making a holiday out of it for myself, hubby and daughter, and the cost to do that will be less than what I was going to be required to fork out to have them done here! So a holiday for the fam and new boobies for me! Win Win! Since I cancelled my surgey here though, I have been second guessing whether getting them done is appropriate for a nearly 39 yr old mum of three late teens. Ever since I was a late teen myself I always wanted bigger, nicer looking boobs. I wasn't blessed. God gave me a big bum instead! So I have felt out of proportion for most of my life. And wished that one day I could get my boobs done. That day is coming... later rather than sooner now though. And I am so anxious that I won't be able to acheive the look I really want, without a lift, which I don't want, nor can I afford. I was told by the clinic here that if I went anatomical, a lift wouldn't be necessary; but of course the teardrops are more expensive, and I find this out only after booking my surgery! Grrrr. Dr Lim does anatomical for under $10k, which is a good price for me; better than nearly $14k here. And his work and finished product all look AMAZING! I know TCI only do round, but wonder if they can work miracles, as I have only ever read good things about them. I am also concerned that anatomical may make me look even more saggy, and drag my breasts down further. I am feeling really confused... anxious... worried... 'deflated' (no pun intended)... and just a little bit sick, really. Any advice from you lovely girlies out there, for an old worried mum like me?!
