Surgery/ Procedure

Name of Surgeon and Date of Surgery




  1. I got implants in the first place to "lift" sagging breasts. They were over the muscle and looked great for a year or two until they made the sagging look worse. Then I got capsular contracture, and over time the implants shape got slightly distorted. In the meantime, I put on a decent amount of weight. My implants were modest to begin with, so now they were on the small side in proportion to my body. I decided I needed a revision and underwent the lift I should have had the first time around. My doctor wasn't clear about how involved the surgery would be, and I was under the misapp
  2. Hello, I'm not sure how many people are from Australia on here. I am looking for recommendations for Drs in Brisbane from people that have used them personally for breast lift and augmentation. Many thanks
  3. Hi Ladies, just wanting to hear recovery stories of full anchor lift with implants. I am booked for 4 weeks time and just wanting to get my head around what the first few weeks post op will be like. My surgeon highly recommends an “active recovery” and suggests back to all normal daily activities (other than lifting anything heavier than 5kg) from the day after surgery. Is this practical? I have three kids aged 8,6 and 18mth and am just trying to determine how much help I’ll have. For the first 5 days I’ll have my mother in law and husband on hand to help but after that I will
  4. Hi ladies, has anyone had a lift with implants wihh dr Tavakoli and gone back for a revision? I had my surgery in 2011, I believe I will need a another lift and have my implants changed. Questions; did you have fat grafting? Internal bra good results consult with anyone else cost for revision if anyone would be able to tell me their experiences. Many thanks Taryn xx
  5. I have had 'furry' Brazilian (Polyurethane) implants since Dec 2012 - 330cc under the muscle, high profile. Over time I have experienced a long list of symptoms such as chronic fatigue, digestive issues & food intolerances, cognitive impairment, joint & muscle pain, environmental allergies, skin issues, EMF sensitivity.. Just to name a few. I've been told I have heavy metals, adrenal fatigue, candida, SIBO, EBV and more recently Lyme Disease. My health has slowly deteriorated and my implants are so painful. After Crystal Hefner sharing her story, doing some research and finding a Breas
  6. Both my implants have ruptured and I need to have them removed. I am researching everything to find the right surgeon as my initial surgeon has retired (not that it matters because I wouldn’t go back to him anyway!). I obviously need the damaged implants removed, I have cc in one breast and my implants have migrated under my arm pits - so I need the pocket created under my arm closed etc. I also may need a lift but hoping to avoid. I have seen dr Tony Connell twice (prior to rupture occurring) and he was lovely. He talked through everything with me and gave me his recommendations. He does rec
  7. Hi Everyone, Currently a size 12G/14F and wanting to get a reduction back to what i was before i had kids 12DD so that i can walk into any store and actually buy a bra. Anyways do i go a reduction and a lift or a reduction with implants (if that is even possible). Let me know your stories please? Thanks Lou
  8. Hi everyone! I'm booked in with Dr. Edmund Ek on the 28th/9 (only 16 days to go, wooo ) to get lipo to my upper and lower abdomen, outer thighs and flanks, teardrop 325-350cc textured implants and an areola lift. I'm 23 with no kids and approx 80kg. Boob wise leftie is a C and rightie is a D/DD. Does anyone have the same surgery date as me? Or is anyone booked with Dr. Ek? If so I would love to read about your experience and/or see before and after pics! It's close to 1.30am and yet again I've spent hours on my phone googling pictures and stories.. I think that I've been running
  9. Hey ladies, I have decided I want to do some research into having a mini tummy tuck added to my surgery, I am on the hunt for a good Melbourne surgeon for BA BL and mini TT, any recommendations would be appreciated, any pics aswell! Thank you! Xxx
  10. 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
  11. 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 consultati
  12. Hi girls, I was wondering if anyone has had their tuberous breasts corrected in Melbourne, and which surgeon did they choose? Please tell me all about your experiences in detail. I am desperate to get mine done, and I have no idea where to start. Thank you!
  13. 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!
  14. 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
  15. Hi ladies. I was really hoping to get back to the gym this week and burn of some holiday slackness, as well as a general overall not having done a lot since surgery slackness; however I found a little wound/hole/split stitch at the join of my aerola in my lift. Contacted my surgeon and searched similar topics on here and am following the betadine, dry with hair dryer and cover with band aid. But, boo, am bummed ? going to have to wait longer to get a proper sweat ? on. Others whom had similar, approx how long did you take to heal and for you to get back to normal routine? My surgeo
  16. Hi ladies, I've been considering implants since losing 50 kgs in the past two years. I'm only 25 now and have no children yet (they're definitely in the plans for the future though). I was an E cup prior to weightloss and I am now a very deflated B/C cup. I don't own, nor can I find a bra that fits me perfectly now as my breasts are mainly just loose skin! Anyway, I met with a surgeon last year who recommended a lift with implants. I didn't go ahead with it as it is out of my budget at the time and I also wasn't entirely sure he was the surgeon for me. Is it worth having these
  17. Hi Everyone After losing 45kgs (10kg still to go) im wanting to get a breast lift with implants and a tummy tuck (Mummy Makeover) when the time comes. Im looking into the following surgeons and wondering if anyone can offer reviews Dr Miroshnik Sydney Dr Moradi Sydney Dr Jeremy Hunt Sydney
  18. Hi girls, really need some advice. I am so confused as there is so much information I've read. i was originally thinking of going to Phuket for a breast reduction or lift and implants. i have reasearched DR Veerawat and really like what I've read and the photos I've seen. I was quoted around the $9000-$11000 mark for surgery which I thought was brilliant. I'm now confused as DR Dilip on the GC can do the same surgery for the same price, however I've read to stay away from him and give me info on why to not go with him? can anyone recommend a brilliant surgeon who can d
  19. I cannot speak highly enough of Dr David Chin.. What an absolutely fantastic Plastic Surgeon. From the very beginning he has been honest, easy to talk to and listened to exactly what I wanted from my breast surgery. I am so happy that I chose him to be my PS and if anyone is looking for someone in Brisbane, go and have a consultation with him. I had several consultations and I knew as soon as I met Dr Chin he would do my surgery.. I am absolutely over the moon with my results and my pre & post op care
  20. Help! I am looking for recommendations of surgeons in Perth (will consider anywhere in Australia if the surgeon is worth traveling for) for a lift WITHOUT mastopexy, implants only. I know it's not always possible to achieve the results of a lift without a mastopexy but as I'm prone to keloid scarring it's not a road I want to go down. If anyone has any recommendations i would love to hear them. Thanks for reading
  21. Hey everyone! It's been a little while since I last posted, but finally my surgery date is getting closer! While originally I was meant to be going overseas, due to complications I've now decided to stay closer to home. Today I had a consultation with Dr Rizk from Inspire Cosmetics in Brisbane, and the experience was amazing! I got along with him incredibly well and really felt like he was determined to give me the best possible outcome. We had a long consultation where we discussed the potential directions we could go in order to achieve my desired outcome, and based off the photos I br
  22. Hi All Are any of you planning removal and lift with no replacement of implant in the new year? Have any of you had this procedure and are happy to share your story? I'm planning to do this early next year and say goodbye to my 12 year old implants (425cc over muscle) for good. Excited but also a bit daunted! It would be lovely to connect with others doing this and share the journey. My story so far: After breastfeeding 2 babies I had small flat pancakes. My original PO suggested a lift with implants but I didn't want a lift at that time. So, I had large sub glandular implant to fill out my d
  23. I'm sure others would find this helpful as it's hard to find these kind of stats even though each person is different
  24. Hi all I've been looking for surgeons to have a revision breast lift and remove and replace, I have a doctor in mind but I'm still shopping around. I've been looking at photos from Dr Alex Phoon and the results look amazing! I'm now considering the above procedures also paired with a tummy tuck (I'm not sure if that still qualifies as a mummy makeover). I'm wondering if anyone has an experience they can share? His reviews are fantastic and I can't find a bad word about him anywhere, but I'd love to actually talk to someone and ask some questions. Thank you in advance
  25. some of you lovely ladies might be able to offer some advice: I had a Breast Lift in May 2015 & am really happy with the results - my breasts are much perkier. However, the last couple of months, i feel like i have lost some upper pole fullness & they feel quite deflated, which is making my areola appear higher on my breast & poke out of bras etc.. I also feel like my areolas are too large for my current breast size. I had a consultation with my Surgeon yesterday & he is recommending either a lift revision which will tighten things up and reduce areola s
