  1. Hi ladies, I have just had a consultation with a surgeon who says I am borderline lift but he would prefer not to do it as I am young and have not yet had kids and I can still have the lift further down the track if I'm unhappy. The vectra imaging showed images with lower sitting breasts than I'd ideally like but I would like to avoid the two procedures in one operation and additional scarring that comes with a lift if possible. Is there anyone on here that was borderline and went ahead with the BA only and are you happy with your results? Thanks!
  2. Hi there! Long time lurker but first time poster (I apologise for the length!)- I've finally decided it's time to start looking into getting a BA given I've lost over 45kilos and my breasts aren't really doing it for me anymore. I've gone from a full D to a relatively saggy B cup and I'm looking to restore some volume and look proportionate again (either aiming for a full C or small D ideally?). I've been informed by a few surgeons at this point (via emails and from photo assessments) that I'm a borderline case and have ptosis of the breast with quite a bit of skin sitting at the top due to the weight loss. While I understand that ultimately, a lift is probably going to be my best friend- I'm only 20 years old and I'm not sure if I want to do such a big surgery at this age. I'm quite aware that pregnancy has a high chance of undoing the work of a lift, and I'd hate to go through the recovery and healing of the scars just to have to do it again 8 to 10 years down the track when I'm done having children (plus I have concerns about breast feeding). I feel like with a breast augmentation, it'll at least help with my confidence for the time being and I can always look at getting a lift later down the track and revise the implants. I'm after a more natural look and don't mind my breast sitting a little low if they're going to be fuller. My nipples are currently above the IMF, and as such I feel I'll be able to go with implants without making it much worse? So far I've been in contact with a few different surgeons and had quite a bit of advice on the realself pages. I've had Dr Narupon from PIAC recommend either tear drop or round implants placed sub glandular or dual plane in order to avoid doing a lift, and so far quite a few surgeons have agreed with this. While I'd love to go with Narupon, I'm concerned about travelling on my own next year and during my uni semester (I'm doing this as a 21st gift to myself). My partner won't be able to come with me due to having his own uni degree to focus on, and as such I'd probably like to stay closer to home if possible. I've got my first in person consultation this Thursday with surgeons from the breast academy, and then the following week will be meeting with Dr Terrance Scamp to hear his opinion after he got back to me on Realself. As of the current moment I've been in contact with: - Dr Harwood - recommended a lift due to having tuberous breast? Only surgeon to say this about my breast shape, have mentioned to a few others who disagree? (Have now booked a consult with him to check in person next monday) - Dr Szalay - recommended implants but suggested I may need to go larger then my small D limit, which I'm contemplating? - Dr Veerawat through Cosmeditour - waiting on a reply - Dr Narupon - recommended either round or teardrop implants placed sub glandular or dual plane to avoid lift - Dr Thanakom - recommended tear drop implants placed sub glandular or dual plane to avoid lift - TCI southport - rejected based off photos, suggested a lift - TCI parramatta (would be willing to travel) - Dr Duong said that while they recommend a lift (based off photos), they'd still proceed with implants as long as I cleared the in person consultation and would be happy with a 'less optimal' result. - The Breast Academy - Sent in photos, they decided that they couldn't make a decision based off these alone and have decided to bring me in for a free quick in person consultation this Thursday. - The Breast Institute - Sent photos, believe to be 'too difficult' of a case. Suggest lift. (Really unimpressed with these people, very abrupt and rude) - Dr Scamp - meeting for an in person consultation in a week, has suggested implants alone based off my goal images and my own photos. - Update: Have contacted Dr Ali Hussain. Has said he's happy to help and will contact me soon. I was just wondering if anybody else has been a borderline case and opted to just go with implants for the time being? I'd love to hear about your experiences! I'm going to try and figure out how to upload some pictures onto here (edit: Have now got an album!) , but I'd really appreciate any feedback I can get!
  3. I just wanted to see some ladies results who were told they needed a lift but didn't but got implants anyway! Im scared ill be told i need a lift and i refuse to have one at my age id just rather large implants so if anyone on here has had the same worry please let me know :)
  4. Hi All, I'm only new to this Site and am so glad I found it! I recently booked my BA with Dr Tang at TCI and since I live in QLD, am flying down for the procedure. When I sent in my pics, they called me telling me I am borderline, particularly in my right breast. When I look at my breasts, yes I do see a little bit of droop but not much and I was just wondering, has anyone been told they were borderline and your before pics looked like mine? If so did you just get implants? And how did they turn out? Do you think I'll be fine with just implants? I feel as though I am a very mild case of borderline, or is that me just reassuring myself?
  5. Hey ladies Thought I'd share this link especially for those of u that are in the borderline lift http://www.feelyoungercollagen.com/tag/lift/ This def helped me with my decision when I was told I was borderline so have a read through and scroll down to the diagram it will give you a good idea of where you are at with uR boobs.
  6. So I was told I was borederline lift. Which at the time I didn't think too hard bout it and was told I should be able to get away with it. But it's 3 mths post op now and I have been doing a lot of starring at the mirror ever since I got boobs and now understand how un perky and how close my aerola is to the bottom of my boobs. Has anyone been in this situation did u just ignore it and be happy you have bigger boobs? They are ok hidden in clothes n bras but when I stare at them naked im not 100% happy with them or is it too soon to get huffy bout my boobs? I'm due for my three mth appointment. I will mention it to my surgeon but if he works on me Again will he expect me to pay for surgery all over again including the lift? or pay the difference thAt I would have paid originally for lift plus BA? I don't have kids and hoping maybe one day in the next few yrs to have a baby (maybe since I'm in my 30s n the clock is ticking away)... would that mean since they are already close to the bottom they will be worse after hVing a baby? I Def don't plan to breastfeed so not sure if that will have a positive effect on the boobs.
  7. Hi ladies, Been awhile since I've posted. Feeling really sad about my boobs they haven't settled they still look rectangular and torpedo from the side and my areola and nips are so low and pointing downwards... I can't stand to look at them naked and wish they were round like everyone else whose had BA. I went to my check up last Thursday and was given the strap to wear to bed and surgeon said we will discuss next mth mid October with what to do next. I have a feeling it will be a revision
  8. Hi im 23 years old and booked in with Dr Nguyen on the 13th October for BA. I have just been advised by my photos that i am borderline to needing a lift however Dr Nguyen will still go ahead. I lost 50kg in the past and now have a very small frame and i have also had 2 children so i have some loose skin! I am just wondering if any one has been advised this in the past and gone ahead with the BA without the lift?
