  1. I've struggled for years about the shape of my boobs. They are a floppy triangle shape that curve around the outside and my nipples are far too low and basically face each other. I had always put it down to simply being a late grower or because I lost 30kg (even though they still were misshapen and underdeveloped before I lost weight) but through research I've come to the conclusion that they are tuberous. I'm only 19 and this deformity is causing so much emotional distress and self acceptance/conscious issues that I keep finding myself depressed with how my body looks. I wanted to know if this is more common than I think with other women who have tuberous breasts and if they have found a good, experienced surgeon (in Melbourne) who has given them proper shape and fullness. And who has helped them with medicare claims as well. I've seen some prices go as high as 20K and I have to rely heavily on my parents for financial support, who were completely shocked by the likely 15-20K price range. It would be amazing if I could find ways to help me pay for it. I already know there's medicare but I've read a lot about people also using their private health insurance? I'm desperate at this stage to find a good surgeon who can help with this specific problem and has experience with it so really any tips you have me are really greatly appreciated.
  2. Hi I’ve been considering Breast augmentation for a VERY long time and I’ve finally starting doing my research. So I’m interested in the polyurethane foam implants (if they’re an option for me of course), i live in Melbourne and would like to have it done close. I’ve found Dr George Mayson and Dr Patrick Tansley who offer these types of implants but I was wondering if anyone else has had experience in Melbourne with any one else who offers the “furry Brazilians”? thanks 😊

    Breast Enlargement

    Hey ladies I am new to this! I am 23 and looking at getting breast implants. Wanting advice on the best surgeons(not over priced), and if to stay in Melbourne where I live or travel to Sydney/GC. Have many people had dealings with CosMediTour as I've seen they're roughly $6000. Any advice would be appreciated 😍

    Dr Daniel Lanzer

    I am looking into liposuction of the banana rolls (under the bum around up into the hip) and thighs. I was very interested in Dr T & Dr M in Sydney however one never got back to me and one only offers lipo with other surgery (BA). Reviews of Dr Lanzer all comment on his bedside mannor. I'm not phased by a blunt dr. I am more interested in the quality of work. Has anyone had recent experience with Dr Lanzer and can detail if they are happy with the end results? I am happy with his prices over phone consultation but really want to be set on the 'after' stories. Thank you in advance!
  5. I can't find many reviews on Dr Morris Ritz here, can anybody tell me a little about him? also any other reputable surgeons in Melbourne. TIA
  6. Hi guys, I am looking for some recommendations to a plastic surgeon in Melbourne for a Breast Lift and Reduction. I was first interested in Dr. Tavkoli in Sydney but would need to stay 10-14days in Sydney after the surgery and that's just not practical for me as I have 2 young children All suggestions welcome Thanks Renee
  7. Whilst this doctor advertises rhinoplasties, he is an ENT. He introduced me to one of his post op clients during my consultation to prove that enlarging a nose instead of refining it creates a better outcome. Well unfortunately it proved the opposite and I would definitely keep your $240 consultation fee and save your money for actual plastic surgeons unless you intend to thicken up and enlarge your nose, not to mention also be ridiculed by the rude reception staff, who freely interject their opinions on what should be done. Easily the strangest consultation I have ever had. I will be consulting with only plastic surgeons from now on!

    Mark Ashton girls

    Hey y’all I’m 5 days post op after surgery with Mark Ashton starting with a small B 179cm 58kgs having 295cc moderate prof plus anatomicals under the muscle- I know he does things very differently to most other surgeons so our recovery is definitely different and I was wondering if there’s any gals out there who have gone through him before ? Currently braless, strapless, starting to freak out that I’ve gone too small and low key freaking out that everyone else got so much more info from their surgeons about post op care Regardless of all this worry I really love mark, his team and have full faith in him :-)
  9. Hey Ladies, i am trying to look for a Melbourne based surgeon for a breast lift. Does anyone have any recommendations on any who they have been too and are at a relatively good price? Thanks!

    Post Op Bra vs NO Post Op bra

    I have my final consult with Mark Ashton tomorrow, I spoke on the phone to his receptionist today and she told me that I will not be using a post op bra or ANY bra for the first 6 weeks of my recovery- opposite to everything I've heard, I then asked about massaging and she told me that he does not encourage any massaging... he's so highly reputed and I trust him with the surgery but this sounds odd?! anybody else have any similar experiences? stats: 22, 180cm, 57kgs, 240cc-270cc? anatomical mentors under the muscle Surgery date: 30th October PS: Mark Ashton
  11. Hello! I am having a Breast Reduction with Mr Tim Brown next month. I've seen a lot of ladies who have had BA's with Tim, and would LOVE to read some Reduction experiences. Has anyone here underwent a Reduction with Tim? Also, if anyone reading this is either booked with Tim or considering him I'm happy to share my experience. I've noticed there really isn't any reviews on reductions specifically. I know what it's like to be in the crazy research phase lol, so happy to help! So far, it has been wonderful. Tim, his nurses and practice staff have made me feel so at ease. Just counting down to the big day now! Thank you
  12. 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

    Melbourne Plastic Surgeon Injectors

    Hi girls, I'm hoping someone can recommend a good plastic surgeon who is also a cosmetic injector that I can see in Melbourne. I do like them to be plastics, I just like their level of training, experience and ability the most and don't mind paying for that. I have tried a fair few of the Melbourne guys with varying results. I'm sure there must be someone great out there that I haven't thought of. I'm mainly wanting filler in my cheeks and on going botox to forehead, masseurs, and lip filler. Definitely going to have more surgery down the track, I like having one "go to man" if that makes sense. I am super particular in technique and know exactly what I want and how it should be done, and only one surgeon was a fantastic injector but I can't see him anymore unfortunately . Please help! Leighton xx

  17. Hi Girls, Just posting to see if there are any other girls booked for their BA op in April/May? I've booked in my op for 13th April with Dr Mansoor. Shout out if you're booked in for April/May! x
  18. Hi All. Im 8 days Post Op from having a Septorhinoplasty with Dr Andrew Greensmith. I wanted to write on the forum as I know I searched these things regularly when trying to pick a surgeon. I had a consult with another Melb Plastic Surgeon, who is very well known - although I didn't like how I was treated by him/his staff and it was just off putting completely. I thought i'd never get my nose done... I was expressing this to a friend, who had another friend recently have Septorhinoplasty with Dr Greensmith & put us in touch. We got in touch and discussed everything regarding the surgery - She was SO happy! I left our catch up googling Dr Greensmith and calling his office before I even got to my car. I had to wait around 6 weeks for a consult. It was WELL worth it!!! Dr Greensmith made me feel so very welcome and listened to what I wanted & was able to actually take on board what I wanted and also telling me what is realistically possible and any issues that could arise if we over did it etc. I found this really comfortating that he was caring about what any changes would do structurally, not just accepting my aesthetic wishlist. (The other Dr did this & didn't offer feedback). He was also able to tell I had breathing problems from a young age, just by looking at me. He looked in, up and all around my nose. (The other Dr just manipulated pics and never looked in my nose once) Turns out I had a deviated septum - so he would perform a Septorhinoplasty. I left feeling so much happier. Like you, I would look up reviews regularly. I was unable to have the surgery for 6months due to other life commitments. I booked in, and asked to have another consult as it has been so long since I seen the Dr. Again, the consult was great. I felt at ease. He never made me feel rushed, or that he had to be somewhere else. Surgery day- The Dr came in to see me before surgery, as did the aneasethist. I don't remember much. I stayed in overnight and wore a compression garment on my legs - great idea! I had minimal bruising, if u could even call it that, and I usually bruise like a peach! I think it was the surgeons great technique. I wasn't in pain at all. I took one pain tablet the entire time of recovery. I just got my cast off yesterday! It's FANTASTIC!!! I had a very European looking nose- think hump at the very top. I also liked how I looked from the front and didn't want to not be 'me' anymore. The Dr did such a great job! I have a straight beautiful side profile (albeit lots of swelling still) and still look like me. I am so happy I chose him. If you can, please book in for a consult with him and you will understand. I know he has limited before & after pics on his website, however you'd also struggle to find a bad review anywhere of him.

    Initial BA consult questions

    I'm booked for my initial consultation with Dr greensmith on 13th June and want to be prepared with the right questions and avoid the feeling of "I should have asked that". What were some of the essential questions you ladies asked?
  20. 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!
  21. Hi all, I'm from Melbourne wanting to get botox for between my brows but have no idea where to go and am scared of the possible side effects .... the internet is full of horror stories. ANY help or experience or links would be excellent. If it helps..im 27 and have had nothing done previously. I booked appointments but chickened out as I am scared! Thank you to anyone who/if replies! Cheers

    Dr Graeme Southwick Rhinoplasty

    I've noticed Dr Southwick has a LOT of good reviews but it is almost impossible to find any before/after photos of his work. I'm booked for mid May as I've done quite a bit of research and fairly confident he is the best I've found (probably explains his hefty price of $14K *ouch*) but it would definitely help ease my nerves to see his work Has anyone seen/booked in with him?

    Post op help Melbourne- HELP!

    Hi everyone! So I am traveling to Melbourne for my BA in June. I have my mum coming with me to look after me post op. Unfortunately her flight doesn't get in till 6pm on my day of surgery and I'm likely to be discharged around lunch/mid afternoon. Does anyone in the Melbourne area know of private nurses or carers that could take me back to my hotel and stay with me until my mum arrives? Or even nursing students or anything like that? Thanks! Sarah
  24. Hi ladies, I'm interested in recommendations and experiences of ladies who have had liposuction in Melbourne - names which I'm particularly interested in are Dr Gavin Chan, Dr David Topchian, Dr Bruce Fox, and the surgeons at the Avenue. I'm 24 y.o., 165cm, and ~63kg (size 8 but very pear-shaped). I've had one consultation so far for liposuction of abdo, thighs, and calves, and would love to hear firsthand advice - there aren't many recent posts that I can find! Thank you in advance! <3
