  1. Hi Ladies! I'm on the hunt for a surgeon in Brisbane or the Gold Coast who has good results with dual plane placement. After years of breastfeeding I have a mild degree of sagging. Luckily my nipple position is fairly good still so I gather it's referred to as glandular sagging or psuedoptosis. I'm confident I can get away without needing a lift...for now anyway! Can anyone reccommend a good surgeon who has had good results with this type of placement?
  2. I need upper eyelid ptosis surgery. Could someone recommend a a really good Oculoplastic Surgeon / Specialist? I can go anywhere in Australia, but prefer Brisbane if possible. I've had a really bad experience in the past and willing to pay more as long as the surgeon is really good. Thank you for your help.
  3. 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!

    Hey girls, I have my BA booked for December with dr lee from tci, just wanted to hear some of your stories? And what placement and if any of you's had a lowered incision? Or if anyone was more complicated? Thank you's so excited!!
  5. So I have been organising my breast surgery through a company and they have been wonderful. I just got my recommendation back from my dr (overseas in phuket) and its totally the opposite to what I want. I also feel its what everyone says saggier boobs shouldnt get. I know i shouldnt belive everything I read and he is the dr at the end of the day but I cant help feel worried. I also do NOT want a breast lift (im 26 and saggy c from weight fluctuation- pics on my profile) ive seen other girls who are similar to me maybe even saggier and they didnt need one. The recommendation says I may need a lift depending on my measurements on the day. I dont feel thats a decision I want to make ON the day of my surgery (considering I dont want a lift anyway). Im terrified if I go and i 100% need one I will have wasted my time. Sigh im super sad now
  6. After reading so many stories on here and seeing so many fantastic transformations - I'm now becoming more convinced that mine are beyond help. The problem is, I'm not flat chested - I'm currently a 14C with droopy boobs that point to the floor. Unsexy. To date I have lost 16 kilos and obviously plan on losing more before getting surgery.. But it seems like the results I want, aren't possible and it makes me want to cry. I understand that it's always best to seek the advice from your surgeon, but I'm not near that stage yet and already disheartened. I wanted round XHP so I'd finally have boobs with a cleavage and upper pole that has curves and definition. But after looking through realself.com I'm beginning to feel that this isn't achievable, because of having whatever breast tissue I have and the skin elasticity I'm prone to sag no matter what I do and implants will just make it worse. But, if I was to just have a lift, I still won't have the upper pole curves that I really truly desire. I'm not gutsy enough to post a pic of my own, but this is a pic that is kind of similar to mine and I'll also post a pic of the look that I love. I guess the reason I'm posting about this is to try and seek advice from anyone here and perhaps even find someone who was/is in a similar position. Im sorry if this situation has been posted before, I've tried searching under every keyword it could think of.
  7. Hey ladies! First, hello I haven't really posted a whole lot yet, just been stalking the forums Just wondering if anyone has had a BL + BA covered at all by Medicare? I have Grade III breast ptosis, asymmetry and loose skin, and have been told I may be eligible? I had originally looked into O/S surgery, until someone mentioned this to me so I thought I would look into a bit more to see if it is infact covered at all Any info would be fantastic!
