  1. I was always painfully insecure of my breast size growing up which was less than an A-Cup. I saved my money and in 2012 at the age of 22 I underwent a sub-muscular breast augmentation to become more proportionate at 34B.3 Months Post-Op, after removing the surgical bra, I noticed a severe dent that spanned across the middle of my breasts anytime I moved. I consulted with my surgeon at my final post-op and he told me that this was normal, and would resolve itself once the implants settled. I was instructed to allow one year and it should be fine.A year came and went and the issue was no less severe. Before going to him again, I consulted with three other surgeons. Each surgeon told me that this was a severe case of muscle flex deformity. It can be a common issue that occurs just under the breast, but because my surgeon had placed the implants too low- the dents went into the direct middle of my breasts. I was told this occurs because tissue adheres to the incision site of the chest wall, and pulls anytime you flex (which, by the way, happens basically whenever you move).I was told by each surgeon that it would never self correct and that the only way to correct it would be to re-do the entire surgery which would cost between $6000 and $8000.I went back to my surgeon and he said to me "I will only do revisions within a year. You should've said something sooner".I was furious, and devastated.He clearly knew this would never correct itself, and was only protecting himself. I sought legal advice but due to the time that had passed I had no grounds to take action.My breasts are so poorly done that I was considered to be on the show Botched, but did not feel comfortable being broadcasted to everyone being so deformed and opted not to go forth.I am now 30. I have spent all of my 20s completely ashamed and feeling deformed. It has impacted my self esteem. My relationships, and obviously was a complete loss of almost $7000.Being 9 years in, I am now noticing that the left implant is also now sitting lower.I no longer want to be like this any longer. I can't spend all of my 30s looking like this also. My original surgeon, Dr. Bruce J Cusenz, has since passed.I've started a gofundme. I realize this is no one's responsibility but my own. But I decided to swallow my pride and ask for help in hopes of feeling normal again. https://www.gofundme.com/f/breast-augmentation-revision-needed?teamInvite=NpmpVILuL9TVswMdsBLuiQBOeBoKnaFEf91fe1kcDHoZz0CmUq84gSLM6DBuMrUQ Thanks to all for listening
  2. Hi I'm looking at getting some recomendations on breast augmentation. Been doing a bit of research into Cosmeditour but they're in Sydney and the Goldcoast and im in Melbourne. Any recommendations for Victoria surgeons? and has anyone used Cosmeditour who also lives in Melbourne? Thanks
  3. Feeling a bit crappy today...2 weeks post op from my breast lift and augmentation and struggling bit with pain. Wondering how long it's going to take to turn the corner? First week seemed easier to handle (lots of pain meds) but this 2nd week has been a struggle...by the end of the day my chest is aching and I need to lay down. I don't think I've been doing too much but I'm not sure. I don't work and my husband is at home with me taking care of kids etc I am just pottering around really. My next check up with Drs is Friday...how much longer till pain starts to subside without pain meds?????
  4. The day has finally arrived, I'm admitted & waiting to go for surgery. Trying hard to relax before going in.....want to be on the other side of procedure and recovering....wish me luck!!
  5. Hi, I had a breast lift recently done and came out amazing even tho my breast is little bit smaller than before (less to carry so not complaining ). One thing I have found during my pre-op researches and watching million of videos was Implant illness. Some women do have symptoms either mental or physical health problems and it's quite a thing they talk about these days. Has anyone ever noticed a difference in health or moods after Augmentation?
  6. Hi, I’m wanting to get a BA this year having recently moved to Adelaide I was hoping you can advise which Dr’s you went with and if you would recommend them. Obviously the same for if you wouldn’t recommend them. Thank you
  7. 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!
  8. 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 consult was quoted to take 2 hours and 30 mins seems so short in comparison considering this is life changing surgery! Looking for any help possible
  9. I have just booked in to have my bilateral Breast Augmentation and right side Mastopexy in March 2019. I am yet to choose my implant size. I am hoping to hear from any of you lovelies who have been through these procedures. My left breast is currently a perky B cup and my right is a saggy D cup. I am 35 years old weight around 72kgs and am a size 12. I have had three children. I would love to see any before and after pics as I struggle to find any decent pics online and would love to hear how the procedures were done (one or two surgeries?) and your before and after stats (which doctor, how many CCs in each breast etc)
  10. Hi Ladies, I'm in desperate need of some advice as to whom would be the best surgeon in Brisbane or Gold Coast that you would recommend and possibly have some before and afters for me to see? The surgeons I have as picks at the moment are: - Dr Sharp (Greenslopes) - Dr Paul Belt - Dr Daniel Fleming - Dr Richardson These surgeons are all in Brisbane so I'm hoping someone could help me in deciding whom would be best to proceed with or whom not to proceed with? Any help id be ever so grateful!!! Thanks in advance !!!!!
  11. 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!:)
  12. I am scared of going too big and scared of going too small. I don't want anyone to notice, but I want to notice! I have a BWD of 12.5cm and starting with a deflated b cup after breastfeeding two babies. I have decided on Motiva Ergonomix round unders, but can't decide between: Mini - 310/290 cc Demi - 380/360 cc I would love to see some photos of people that started out with similar stats to me, and how their augmentation looks and what they used to get those results. Please!!
  13. Hi, I'm new here but please please help, Im having a panic attack. My surgery is next week and I started reading about BWD and such but I chose my implant as 385cc high profile saline. I just measured my breast width and it's like 15cm. I don't remember how much the surgeon said they were for me, I stated that I really didn't want the two tennis ball look but im looking up implant sizes and the implant width is 11.4cm. Is that way way too small for me?!?! Im 160cm and about 55kg. If anyone has similar experiences with similar measurements, please help!!!!! or anyone with any input I would really really appreciate it.
  14. Hi all, new to this forum and please forgive me if this has been asked before (having slight noob problems navigating this page atm). I really would not like to travel for my breast augmentation as I would be going it alone in such a case. The problem is I live in Cairns and the only plastic surgeon here (that I have been able to find) is Dr Isolde Hertess. She has had numerous allegations against her for botched surgery in the past. Very scary to read. However in recent years I have not heard much either way and she is still practicing. I would love to know if anyone has *recent* experience with this doctor. Please I would appreciate any info so much.
  15. Okay, so I have now widened my list of surgeons instead of narrowing it!! I am tossing up between these surgeons: Dr Miroshnik, Dr Steven Liew, Dr Steve Merten, Dr Moradi. I want a really really natural looking breast. I am currently a AA and am 175cm tall and 57kg. I just don't want big fake boobs! has anyone had or know of anyone who has had BA's with these surgeons who might be similar to myself?? Thanks
  16. Hey gorgeous ladies ?... I'm booked in to have a breast aug with Dr Edmund Ek after feeding two babies for a year each. I went from a B cup to a sad looking A cup! Just wondering if anyone has any tips or advice? Did you travel to Dr Edmund? I'm flying from tassie so a bit nervous! How long before you were allowed to fly home? Were you happy with your surgery? If anyone has any photos I'd love to see them. Thanks heaps ??
  17. Girls who have had their breast implants done in Melbourne hoping you can share your reviews / before and afters need all the help I can get!
  18. Hi everyone, I use to have very large natural 8F boobs. I stopped taking the pill, lost a bit of weight, and now have saggy, wide-set 8D-DD breasts (i.e. they're quite far apart on my chest). They look good in a bra, but as soon as they come out of a bra they drop considerably down and to the side. I still have quite a bit of tissue there, but it's not sitting as high or as close together as I would like. I've had three consultations with two surgeons in Melbourne. The first said I didn't need an augmentation, but a lift should do the trick. The second said a lift won't give me the look I want (which is fullness in the middle of my chest), and suggested a slight reduction in the breast tissue alongside a lift, plus an implant. I agree - I want the implant. However the whole thing seems incredibly complex, and there's a good chance it will need to be undertaken in two stages. So I'm wondering, has anyone here had this procedure? I really need advice from someone who has also gone through this kind of surgery. I would LOVE to know who your surgeon was, how you went about the surgery, and how much it cost. Thanks SO much!
  19. Hi there, I was wondering about whether I will need a lift as well as implants. I am a 27 year old with a 32D natural breast which is not my preferred shape, and I am looking to augment these using implants to achieve a natural, yet fuller 32D or DD. i hate the way my breasts sag but have been told that an implant could lift them? I just lost 10kg so my boobs are like sagging pancakes!! Also, any recommendations for surgeons in Sydney? Preferably East or North side, but I am willing to travel. I have booked in a consultation with Dr Bezik in Bondi and am looking at Dr Miroshnik but his prices are extortionate?!? Also, if I was to get the lift would I likely lose all feeling in my nipples? Any advice or or similar experiences would be amazing ! Thank you in advance, D
  20. Hiya Ladies, I'm booked in for my Unilateral Breast Augmentation in August with Dr Richardson. I was just wondering what other people's experience with him and correcting the tuberous breast situation. I've read on here a few things about his work not turning out so well and ladies haven't been as pleased with him because after they dropped they were very low. Can anyone share with me their experience if they've been in a similar situation please? I'm beginning to have second thoughts :S
  21. I've been told by three surgeons that I am borderline lift, but none of them pushed for it. Does anyone have before and afters of just getting augmentation? I have seen several women say that he fantastic results from augmentation alone but none had posted befores! Help appreciated!
  22. Just received news back from TCI after sending through my photos saying I am borderline. I am wanting a BA due to my asymmetry issue as there is a full cup size difference. They mentioned in my email that BA alone will fill the breasts to provide a fuller look in a bra, however existing soft breast tissue may remain loose and hang off the implant. This may create a long-breasted appearance and low positioned nipples as well as the implant remaining high. They said with existing soft breast tissue that I my asymmetry can be accentuated. I am wondering if there is anyone out there who has gone through with just the BA from the same background as myself.
  23. 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!
  24. Hi all, Firstly let me start with wishing you all a happy and healthy 2017. As most can tell, I'm a new member here, however am a long time viewer. A brief history of mine: I'm male, live in Sydney, was diagnosed with Diabetes (Type 1) some 22 years ago; had gastric sleeve surgery 4 years ago...which lead to a decent amount of weight loss (70+kgs). Wasn't always overweight, but was so for around 5-6 years. Height is 183cm, and I weigh 87kg, with no weight gain since surgery. As you can probably imagine, with significant weight loss comes the dreaded loose skin. I haven't had too much of that at all, in fact, my body has held up pretty well - with clothes on, I look pretty good. However, when I bend over I get a little bit of sag in the belly area - which didn't concern me too much. My main concern is the buttocks area, which has kind of left me feeling devastated. I now have no bum, sort of. It sags. Just talking about it depresses me. It has had an impact on life socially - I should probably mention I'm of the gay persuasion, and I find the community is a little vain, I haven't been 'involved' with anyone for 4 years, which is all my doing - having no confidence with my body is the issue. I mentioned my body issues with my gastric sleeve surgeon, and mentioned that I was interested in both a TT and some sort of buttocks procedure - he happily referred me to a surgeon in Sydney - one with whom he has a great respect for: Dr Steve Merten. I've read reviews on this doctor and he seems to be a leader in this field - however I'm concerned that, although he is obviously gifted in this field, he doesn't perform any sort of buttocks surgery -he's not back in the office until later this month, was hoping to get the down low before I make an appointment only to discover he doesn't perform the surgery that I need... Naturally, at this stage of the game, I'm full of questions... - Does anyone know of a surgeon in Sydney that performs both a TT as well as Buttocks Augmentation? - Are surgeons likely to perform these procedures separately? - Any other diabetics out there who've had a TT? (I'm using an insulin pump, so curious to know where you had your pump cannula placed during recovery) - Any advice on buttocks procedures - there is a ton of info out there from a female perspective but little from a male's POV - some people who have had implants feel as though they're sitting on cushions whenever they sit; are there still issues with implants leaking (I don't really want to walking around feeling like I have to take extra care each time I sit, or roll around with my dog etc...); anyone had a Brazilian butt lift? Keen to know how long the procedure lasted (especially if you're male). Any assistance, advice or suggestions will be taken on board. Thank-you all!
  25. Hello, does anyone know of a surgeon in Perth who does fat transfer to breast? I want a more natural approach to plump up my boobs after breastfeeding cheers
