Surgery/ Procedure

Name of Surgeon and Date of Surgery




  1. Hey Girls I found this info on another message board/forum and thought it would be helpful for those wondering what the healing process involves. I wish I had this earlier. I'm a little behind (probably due to my age). Don't take this as gospel, just a guide. Hope it helps Bec Phase 1. 0-3 Days Post Op - Soreness on sides, ribs, sternum, and maybe back muscles. Swelling, tightness, shiny skin. Square-boob/highness of implants. In/out of it depending on pain medication being taken. Sleep is best in recliner or with a wedge to avoid swelling overnight and back pain. Almost everyone ne
  2. Hello Ladies ! I had a breast lift/aug ten days ago. Finally got my dressings changed and the GP placed Hypafix tape on my incision line. There is no issues with the wound. however, since the change it has been itchy! is this a normal recovery process? Also , how long do you keep the incisions line covered with tape? Thanks in advance for any advise
  3. Hey boobie-mates... I ventured out to go swimwear shopping today. Yeah I know, it's the end of summer, but hey everything is on sale atm!! So, I used to absolutely HATE swimwear shopping pre-op, even more than hating bra shopping. I never could fit into any decent or sexy swimwear with my previous AAA's. I'd try on sth and it would always flop in the boobie dept and just look terrible and you really cannot wear your chicken fillets to the pool or beach (unless you are purely lounging on the sand and not actually going in the water & even then you're always worried they'll slither out!!) -
  4. I am now Day 5 post op everything’s going well although I’m starting to get really bad back pain from having hunched shoulders. I am somebody who normally has really good posture and it’s been really hard to adjust being hunched and sleeping upright as well. I feel like if I push my shoulders back my muscles get too tight like I’m not supposed to. What should I do about this did anyone use special exercises? Also my boyfriend of 4 years is struggling to adjust to the new me and it’s giving me stress. Did anyone else have these problems? I need some reassurance.
  5. I am day 4 post op already sick and tired of the compression bra it is so tight and really hard to breathe. I am talking so slowly because it’s that tight. Anyone else struggle with this? It gives me more discomfort than the surgery itself.
  6. 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
  7. Hi all, I am one week post op. I got 330cc mentor teardrop under the muscle, starting at a small a and hoping for a mid range C. I am a lot bigger than I expected and am wondering if I will find any reduction in the size in the next few weeks? 60 kg 172cm
  8. Hi I am a week post op, going for my follow up appointment with dr layt tomorrow. I have been quite anxious the past week as I haven't been wearing the bra only the strap as instructed by dr layt. Has anyone had their Breast Aug done by dr layt or have to wear the strap? How long did yours take to "drop" and settle, I know it is only 1 week just wanting to know how others went and what to expect! thanks
  9. Hey ladies, looking for some suggestions for post op bras for right after I get the new additions. I have 2 zip front bras but don't know if they'll be the right compression bras for right after op. Thamks x
  10. Hi Ladies, I am at the very early stages of BA. I have decided I am going to get it done in Melb, however I am still unsure about a surgeon. I want a qualified Plastic and Cosmetic surgeon I want a hospital rather than a Day Hospital so I can stay overnight. I want to feel confident that he will do want and care about how I will look rather than "bolting" on some boobs! I know they are uncomfortable but possibly a Dr that uses drains. I think Mark Ashton does but is there anyone else? Lastly I live 5 hrs from Melb so without compromising my health I want the
  11. Hi ladies ? I had BA on 1 July and have tape on my incision (under crease incision), and my tape is due to be removed end of this week - so I'm nearly 2 weeks post BA. once my tape comes off I can start using my strataderm cream for my scars, BUT would you suggest covering scars with bandaids prior to get a spray tan? I don't want that substances getting into scars while they are fresh. But I really want (NEED) a tan lol
  12. I am currently in my 3rd day post op and thought I would share my experience, because as we all know everyone's experience is different & I have had friends who went out for dinner the day of surgery and others who were bed bound the whole week. So here is mine, feel free to ask any questions as I am only day 3 so who knows what tomorrow may bring! The week of the surgery I came down with a cold and was freaking out that my surgery would be cancelled so was quite a bit stressed but after trying every home remedy I could find on google including eating raw garlic and drinking apple cider vi
  13. Hi girls! Just wondering if any of you have gone to the Chiropractor to adjust your back at 4 weeks post op? I accidentally went and forgot to ask my surgeon if I was able to because I didn't think anything of it and didn't think if would effect my Post Op recovery. And when I called to ask, the nurse said that it's still too early as I'm still in the recovery process etc. Now I'm worried if I've stuffed my new breasts because I've had my back adjusted. I'm hoping that they wont end up lop sided or something horrible. Eeeek! I'm freaking out! xx
  14. Hi all! Just thought Id spread the love...these crops are amazing, zip at the front and ON SALE! woo hoo! http://www.lornajane.com.au/091532/Legend-Support-Bra
  15. I'm just starting to ease my way back into exercise with light cardio and when they say 'don't raise your heart rate' does anyone know what a safe heart level rate is?
  16. Hi guys, was wondering if anyone can share their experiences from their operations to up to 2 weeks post op, and how their recovery went. Was there anything that helped you recover faster? Im having a BL and BA in the new year and was worried about what to expect. Especially in regards to what you can and cant do? Thanks
  17. I'm having surgery with dr Ali soon and I was just wondering how long he had you girls with overs wearing the post op bra for? I saw that a girl was told she could wear normal bras after 2 weeks. also, any feed back or photos of your work would be awesome too! It's really hard to find many photos of his work thanks girls
  18. **ESSAY ALERT** Hey girls! So I've been meaning to write a review for my BA experience for a while and I'm getting up to a month post op now so thought I'd get on with it! I can't find a review section for my surgeon but still wanted to write my experience in case it helps others whether they go with my surgeon or not!!So I had my surgery on 13th August 2015 at St John of God in Geelong and my surgeon was Dr Richard Rahdon. I wanted surgery because I lost a considerable amount of weight- around 42kgs- and the first place my weight went from was my boobs which was a bit devastating!! I am from
  19. I have surgery booked in with Mark ashton, really want to see some more photos of people who have gone with him as theres only a few I can find. Either augmentation, lift or both, or from people who have over the muscle, silicone, 310-400cc high profile as that is similar to what i'll be having done ??
  20. Packing List Random items . Boomerang (v) pillow/ask hotel for extra pillows · Travel pillow · Travel blanket if you’re with a budget airline · Bendy Straws · Dry shampoo · Laxatives . Throat lozenges (for sore throat because of tube) · Personal items (makeup deodorant and toiletries) · Panadol and nurofen · Movies/hard drive with walking dead downloaded hahaha♥ · Laptop/ipad/phone & chargers · Travel power converter (apparently really heap to buy over there) · Ice pack/ hot water bottle (stays warmer for longer than wheat pack) · hand sanitizer · Lip balm
  21. I'm 8 months post and haven't been wearing a bra to bed since about 2 months after. Just wondering how many people, if any wear a bra to bed still?
  22. I understand that there is swelling post op. I had the swelling on my sides then it migrated to my belly, and now it's at my Vagina! Even the lips of my Vagina is freakin swollen! I'm freaking out! Please tell me that this is also normal?!
  23. Ahhhhhhh! I can barely sleep my incision sites are so itchy! I know this is part of the healing process but seriously I don't know what to do with myself its that irritable! This has been way worse than any pain has for me since my BL. Does/did anyone have this to the same extent? It's just I've not read much about it on here. I'm taking Cetirizine daily to try and help and I'm applying Baclofen cream regularly. By the way everything looks normal - there's no redness, swelling etc.. Any ideas would be much appreciated, thanks Danni x
  24. Hi girls, I had my BL yesterday and definitely feeling the pain and discomfort today although it is manageable. I have dressings on and I have a surgical stretchy double bandage on top. I have heard everyone talking about surgical bras on here but I have this bandage on instead which seems to be doing the job. I have a follow up appointment in 1 week with my surgeon. I'm guessing everything has to stay exactly where it is until then? I have had a look this morning underneath and I've had some bloody ooze from one side but it is all dried now which is good. I love having this forum to chat w
  25. Hi ladies Has anyone travelled interstate to have BA at TCI without any friends/family members? I may be travelling alonw and am looking to find out if others have done the same. In particular I'd like to know what you did for immediate aftercare (i.e. getting back to the hotel and the first 10 hours). Thanks in advance
