Hi All, For years and years I've desperately wanted B/A as I was a small A cup and hated my body. I'm tall and have wide hips so wanted to look womanly and fill out nice clothes etc. I had a few consults, picked Cosmedi Tour and was added to their forum where I saw hundreds of posts from girls immediately after their augmentation saying how they were ALREADY in love!!!! I was so so excited and just knew I'd get the same feeling. I was told in my first ever consult by a very well known PS that he would give me 380cc round unders to help me achieve my dream look. Cosmedi Tour PS, however, said this would never fit my dimensions, look very fake, and increased the risk of CC, rippling, and double bubble so we settled for 330cc mod plus tear drops to give me a natural look while. I was still quite happy with this although really wished I could have gone 375cc tear drops ideally. But I didn't want to take any risks. Leading up to the day of I had these nightmares that I would wake up from the surgery, look in the mirror and see my old boobs on my chest, but be in a lot of pain and have the scars from the surgery and the surgeons telling me 'yes of course we put the implants in, they look great'. So I was clearly nervous the size was going to be way too small. On the day of my surgery I got into my gown and sat in the consult room minutes before hopping on the table and they said they had re-assessed and I was not a good candidate for 330cc either and they brought in 295cc tear drops. I had about 2 minutes to say yes and had no idea what my options were so just said 'Well I'll trust you then, I guess put in the 295's". The surgery went smoothly, I recovered well and got home, was so excited to see the results and had a look straight away, and my worst nightmare had come true. I saw nothing but a little swelling and basically other than that.. my old boobs were still there. Everyone assured me that with time, patience and dropping and fluffiing they will look amazing.. but I don't see how a 175cm tall girl getting under 300cc moderate profile implants will really look that different when all other girls I see with 290's are tiiinyyy girls with slim tiny bodies and they still just look very proportionate. BUT I managed to stay positive, and held up an old bra against my body and saw the difference, I've kept a smile on my face and hoped for the best since then. My B/A was 5 days ago now. Today I can not stop crying. I wish I'd had more time to think and ask for the 345cc high profile implants, as they have the same length and width but a cm more in profile which I have seen on a girl with roughly my stats and they looked amazing, but I never had the time or information to do this and feel like I've made a big mistake. Maybe I could've gone rounds, or over the muscle instead, so I could get a bigger size to make it worth it, who knows!!! I've spent my life's savings on these things and even took out a small loan to make up for what I didn't have. I put all hope of my happiness into them and expected to be thrilled like all the girls on the forum. Instead, I am so sore, in so much pain, can barely see a difference, and broke. I am so upset. I'm not sure if it's because my mum went home today and I am now home alone, or if it is because today is the first day I haven't taken pain medication, or if the way I feel is completely warranted. Anybody who has been through this I would love your advice. What did you do? Did you pay another few thousands and wait for the 1 year to go bigger, or did you deal with it, or did this emotional state pass? Please help Thank you!!!
Hi there! So, I'm hoping this isn't too personal or anything of the sort- but I was wondering if anyone had been undergoing treatment for depression or something similar when they went in for their surgery? I've been suffering with moderate depression (due to a combination of back injury at the time and just being completely overwhelmed by my final year of uni) for just over a year now, and while it's manageable- I'm not 110% better. I'm currently on anti depressants (prozac) and finished seeing my psych a few weeks back. While I'm feeling super confident about my decision to get the surgery (I was looking at getting my breasts done long before the depression hit) I've finally had a surgeon ask for a clearance for surgery letter from my GP. While I have no problem with getting the letter (and luckily I was able to get an appointment for today, so hopefully it all goes well!), is it usual for surgeons to request this? I'm looking at going with Dr Pornthep in Bangkok and he's the first surgeon to ask for such a thing between all the Thailand surgeons I've spoken to and the ones I've seen here in Australia. Once I get this and forward it onto the agency I'm going through, I'll finally be able to get his surgical recommendation which I'm looking forward to reading! Anyway- I was just wondering, did anyone go through something similar and how was your experience? I'm a little worried my doctor won't clear me for it and I hate to think that this depression might hold me back from getting something done that I've wanted for so long. I obviously wanted to be completely honest filling out my assessment sheets, but at the same time- I know this is something I want and have wanted for so, so long.
So it's not almost 5 days post op. I love my new boobs and they're healing really well, not much pain other than i bit of morning pain but I think I'm starting to get a bit of "boobie greed" already.. I got 425cc EHP under the muscle which my surgeon said should give me a D maybe DD from an A. Looking at them and then looking at other peoples post op photos i feek like they're still small though I know they will change heaps in shape over the next month or so I just hope they don't get any smaller! How did everyone else find theirs changed over the months? Good or bad? Am i freaking out for nothing?
