  1. The following is my BA experience...hope it helps someone else wondering what to expect, just like I was when I came across this incredible forum I will apologise upfront that this will be extremely long... I was due at the Hurstville Surgery Centre at 8.30am on Friday, 10th January. I live on the central coast and had decided to get the train down (thanks for the idea Merlin) so I could just chill listening to music and then my husband could come to collect me leaving our two little ones with a friend. Did I get to bed early to get a good night's sleep? No! I was still packing my bag at 11pm lol Then once I got into bed I set my alarm for 5.30am and then promptly woke my sleeping husband for one last hoorah...well who knows how long I'd have to wait afterwards right!? So, got to sleep around midnight and woke at 5am. Felt so calm and happy during the train trip. Arrived at the hospital and it was a ghost town. Just me and the male receptionist. Lucky if I waited 5mins before a lovely nurse came to collect me. Went through my forms, took my temp and BP and got my ID tags for wrist and ankle. Then she led me to my waiting room on the ward where I changed into the sexy gown, booties and cap (just left knickers on). Idled away the time texting my husband, close friends and family. Suddenly it was time to get wheeled into the room just outside the operating theatre. Dr Rastogi was still finishing up with his first patient. Turns out the hospital had only reopened the day before and it was just Dr Rastogi in that day with 3 BA's to do. I was the middle one. Because it was so quiet the nurse told me that my husband could come in with me as soon as I was awake. Next I met Andrew, the anaesthetist, who was lovely. He explained what he would do and what post-op meds I would take followed by a bit of general chit chat. I started to get a little bit nervous in the next 5-10mins and then Dr Rastogi walked through the theatre doors with his warm gentle smile and I immediately felt calm again. I asked him some more questions and he really does make you feel like he has all the time in the world for you. He took some pre-op photos and remeasured my BWD. We had chosen 400cc XHP in my consult, but also ordered 360cc XHP as a backup. After remeasuring me he said he was going to use the 360's as I didn't have much leeway widthways and the implants tend to expand a little once they settle. This may not be an issue for some people, but as I have very little natural breast tissue and was concerned about implant detection on the sides (particularly as I was getting brazilians), he opted for the narrower of the two implants. FYI - my BWD is 12.9 and the implants were 12.3 and 12.8cm respectively. I told him I trusted him and, as the sizes are quite similar, I just wanted whichever one would be best for me. Andrew came back out and injected into my left arm (elbow crease) and then directed me to walk in to theatre. I think there were 5 or 6 people. I hopped on the bed under a warm inflatable blanket thing. There were two bright lights up above, but they were multiple colours (they reminded me of a rainbow) and a good song was playing. Everyone seemed happy and I remember feeling like I was smiling like a Cheshire Cat, but I couldn't get the smile off my face (I tried!). Then Andrew helped me take my left arm out of my gown so he could get a line in and Dr Rastogi helped me take my right arm out of my gown. I was unsure where I was supposed to lay that arm...he grabbed my hand in both of his and said this hand is for me. He smiled at me and I smiled back and then I started waking up in recovery. I hadn't even realised the anaesthetist had obviously already given me something!! I have no idea what I was saying to the two nurses...think I was asking if I'd been snoring and then talking about my favourite breakfast haha I was struggling to stay awake, but felt fine besides that. They moved me to a reclining chair and then my husband came in. I thought it was around 1.30pm. They mentioned getting me a sandwich and I told them I'm GF (they'd forgotten to check my dietary requirements). I then asked where the bathroom was and walked off to go pee. All of the nurses were so lovely and one of them raided her own locker to find something I could eat I had some cheese on a couple of corn thins, a piece of chicken out of a sandwich and an apple juice. Dr Rastogi then came to check on me and said they would go through lots of changes and softening up over the next three months, but said they should look pretty decent in a couple of weeks. He then asked if he could take a look and said actually they look pretty good now lol My husband quickly concurred with that statement after he left Then I got dressed and we left. It was already at least 3pm somehow. I used a pillow for the drive home (thank you Libby) and we were back on the coast before I knew it. I have had no pain besides a bit of a sore back on Saturday. I haven't taken any of the panadeine forte prescribed. I have an antibiotic twice daily, an anti inflammatory, Valium before bed (which doesn't seem to do anything?) and panadol 2-3 times per day. I took my tape off my incisions in the shower on Sunday morning and this morning (Tuesday) is the first time that it feels a little tender (on LHS - maybe some numbness is starting to subside?). I have some swelling and a bloated tummy, but haven't had any bruising yet. My incisions look a little red and feel a bit bumpy in parts. I am allowed to reach arms above head, wash my hair etc. I can only wear a singlet/bandeau for the first three weeks, then softcup bras. I am comfortable on my back (I am a tummy sleeper), but is not easy to fall asleep in that position. Bit of pressure on my chest when I wake up in the morning. Only negative thing (besides that boobs are numb and warm, so feel weird) is I get a bit lightheaded and weak every now and then - eat some Vegemite toast and lie down and all good. Well that's all I can think of (thank god you say if you're still with me!). I am prone to anxiety and quite an indecisive person (what if this, what if that), but I can honestly say that I felt excited about my decision the whole morning and right before I went into theatre I thought "Let's do this!!". So my advice is do your research and make sure this is what you really want and you won't look back. Thank you to everyone that has helped me during this journey (particularly M10972). There are many on here that I have never communicated directly with, but have been kind enough to provide their stories, issues, concerns on here for others to read. This forum has helped me so much and I wish everyone who takes the plunge in the future a positive experience like I've had so far and a speedy recovery xox
  2. Hi Dolls, I am in the process of organising consultations with Dr Rastogi, Dr Kahout and Dr Phoon. I'm extremely excited and nervous at the same time. I have been referred to Dr Rastogi and Dr Kahout by friends who have had BA done, most are happy with their results but one girlfriend isn't. I understand everyone is different and will react differently etc. I was wanting some your personal experiences re: these doctors if you have had a BA done. I am 5'8, mother of 4 which were all breastfeed for min. 14 months. Any feedback or advice would be greatly appreciated.
  3. I want to tell everyone my experience with Dr Rastogi. This isnt to bad mouth anyone - but people have urged me to tell my story so it doesnt happen to anyone else. I want to start by stating that with the overall finishrd product, im very happy. My problem is with the treatment and the aftercare after that I received once the surgery had received my $15'000. When I initially called Dr Rastogi's office, the girl was so lovely and helpful - she booked my consult on the following Tuesday and they had a surgery cancelation on the Friday so I put a deposit on the spot. They sent the hospital papers express post and we started the process. I went to Dr Rastogi's office on the Tuesday and the whole experience was amazing. Everyone was lovely and informative. Dr Rastogi listened to all my lifestyle factors, all my concerns and took the time to personalise the implant shape, the angle and address all my partners concerns. I left without a doubt in my mind that Dr Rastogi was the right surgeon and I was making the right decision. The morning of my surgery I was awake at 3am because I was too excited to sleep. We got to the hospital early and soon I was in a gown and waiting. The hospital didnt have an admission paper they were meant to have, but they assured me Dr Rastogi always carries the original and is meticulous with paperwork. Before I knew it I was in with Rastogi chatting away awhile he marked my breasts. He calmed my nerves and then took me to the next room where the lovely team put me to sleep. I woke up and was ready to pee - and was sitting in the discharge chair ready to go. unfortuantely I suddenly got intense pains and had to be readmitted and given meds. Dr Rastogi came down and addressed my concerns again and I was ready to go. I received a few texts and a Sunday call from Rastogi which I thought was really nice. on the monday I chose to return to work. I was still a little out of it but I felt ok. I called Dr Rastogi's office to get a follow up appointment. I spoke to the rudest woman. She spoke to me like I was an idiot - i am an executive assistant for a top cosmetic dentist and understand the ins and outs of "reception" work. She rudely told me I was given a follow up appointment already next Monday - when I said mondays were impossible - she told me Tuesdays are only for new consults. When I rebuttled it, she said Dr Rastogi would step out while his consultation undressed to see me and would then need to go back in - I was allowed THREE minutes of his time. I hung up the phone and balled my eyes out. I felt so worthless that now my surgery was done - i was of no importance. I asked my partner to call the surgery for me. Elle called me back and soothed my concerns and said I would have Rastogi for a full hour or as long as I needed on Tuesday at 9am and was so sorry for whoever I spoke to before. over the week I was developing severe pain on my right hand side and none on my left. I started getting small fevers and thought my breasts were starting to look different. On the monday before my follow up I received a text asking me to confirm my appointment with Helen- when I called and asked them who Helen was and why I wasnt with Dr Rastogi like promised, they told me that because I wasnt a consult I had to be put im the nurses collum but I would definitely be seeing Dr Rastogi. I text him and got no response. I remember sitting at dinner that night and couldnt stop crying. I felt so belittled and depressed - my partner and family couldnt console me. I went and saw my girl friend who is a nurse and she confirmed that all my symptoms were consistant with an infection. On Tuesday I arrived just before 9am, another woman was in the waiting room aswell. At 9:20am I was brought into a consult room by a nurse. She told me the extreme pain on my right side was just fluid - when I asked if I needed more antibiotics for the fluid on my ribs she said to wait for the doctor. At 9:30am she left the room. At 9:45am Rastogi popped his head in and apologised that he wouldnt be long - he didnt know I was there. By 10am I had had enough, i got changed and left the surgery - everyone saw me leave and no one called to check if I was ok. I called the office and spoke to a nurse - i was so angry and hurt - she returned my concerns with more rudeness and told me the Doctor would call me at 12pm. By 2pm I had run out of patience and got my partner to call again. He was promised a return call by end of day. 6pm came and nothing. I gave him the after surgery mobile amd he called and spoke to Rastogi who eventually returned my call - dismissed my concerns, said that he doubted it was fluid and to send him photos and my temperature and to book in for a follow up when I could. And ended noting to be polite to his staff. I got off the phone, sent all photos - nothing. easter long weekend i went to Noosa and woke on easter Sunday in intense pain. My left breast was so hot, it was almost double the size, my nipple was pointing noticibly to the left, the incision had come off my chest to half way up the breast and was bright red - my right was healed and purple by this stage. I have never been so worried in my life - at 7am i inundated the doctor with texts and photos begging him to help me. 3 hours later a very shakey voiced Rastogi called me and tried to tell me that I shouldnt be so worried and if I could find the nearest chemist he would fax a script for oral antibiotics - i suggested adding an antisceptic ointment for the inflamed incision. He sent the script to Noosa and I began taking the antibiotics immediately - by the next day there was signs of improvement. Tuesday I went in to see Dr Rastogi and he said he wasn't 100% sure if it was infection but gave me a double repeat of antibiotics to be safe. Update: I have since had a follow appointment with Dr Rastogi. We are unable to conclude why an infection may of occured, and if it did it was a minor one because it responded rapidly to antibiotics. My breasts have healed well and have entered their second stage of softening. I have no more pain but have not gained feeling back in the bottom of my left breast.
  4. Hi ladies, this is my 1st forum, but I really wanted to hear your views on this. I am due to have a BA with Anoop Rastogi who appears to have a very good reputation from the chatter I've seen on line (and I really liked him when I met him in person) however I am getting lots of pressure from friends/family about the fact he's a cosmetic surgeon, not a plastic surgeon. So I have 2 key questions - 1) Cosmetic vs Plastic Surgeon? 2) Anoop Rastogi vs Michael Miroshnik? Thanks for sharing your views and experiences. KK
  5. Hi Everyone I wanted to detail my recount or should I say experience with the renowned Dr Rastogi, this is a long one because I wanted to add the emotional and physical aspect to it. Perhaps to benefit those who plan to have a consult or go ahead with BA booking with Dr Rastogi. PLUS there isn’t much info on him here. Here it goes! Deciding on which surgeon Whether Plastic or Cosmetic surgeon did not matter to me. What mattered most was reputation and results. My sister directed me to Dr Rastogi as she had seen some of his work via past artistic calendar pics and the fact he is all over the cosmetic surgery magazines. She also had her BA done 5 years ago but couldn’t afford to have it done with Dr Rastogi, so you could say she is living the experience and results through me haha. I’m sure we’ve all seen his before and after pics on his website. FLAWLESS the exact look I am after. I booked my consult with him for early February. I booked my second consult with Dr George Mayson, you know just to get a second opinion. I found the consult with Dr Mayson very informative, going through the risks, type of implants, showing him my breasts so he could see what he could work with etc. I knew about 95% of what he was telling me anyway as I had researched the risks extensively, nonetheless I spent an hour listening to him talk. He also got to know me by, asking questions off a template i.e. what’s your age, where do you live, what is your occupation. I really wanted him to recommend an implant size for me (given I paid $200 or $250 for the consult) – but the consult was more so shaped around being informative. I left with the impression I was to make a BA booking THEN attend a second consult to chose a size. I wanted to speak up and ask but it seemed my time was up with him. Lovely man, nothing negative stemmed from the consult. I left feeling good and also left thinking that he’s costs will be about $3K cheaper in total costs than Dr Rastogi price (sorry just being honest here, no sugar coating). Arrived at Dr Rastogi’s office February 12th, the nurse took me into a room to watch a 15-minute video on the risks of BA and you have to initial on the piece of paper that you acknowledged the risks. After that, I was taken into Dr Rastogi room and oh my what a handsome charming man this fella is! Haha Besides that and on a serious note, I found conversing with him very easy, he made eye contact, he really sat there to understand why I wanted BA and took the time to get to know me. His demeanor is charming and I felt instantly …YUP this is the doc for me! After speaking for about 10 mins I was straight up and confessed that I had already paid a deposit for surgery on the 28th of March – yes I have that much faith in him! He left the room to allow me to undress, funny enough he told me to knock when I was done. But I felt weird and awkward doing that so I when I was done taking off my top which took a split second. I waited for HIM to knock instead haha. ‘Yes sir you may come back into your own office’. Anyway so you stand there straight and he writes and draws on this template sheet. He assures me he is not critising me, more so noting my shape and that my left breast crease was higher. His recommendation was 230cc HP Brazilians. Which would take me to a I think medium B, his recommendation is based on the size that is the safest and poses less risks, yet giving me an elegant natural shape. We used the framed pictures he has up in his office as a reference of size and type of look I was after. I really thought I wanted that natural B Cup shape but just being there with him and thinking ‘ this is really going to happen!’. I asked him if I could go bigger to a C-Cup. He measured me for the 270cc and noted that it may be a bit of a stretch considering my left breast nipple to crease length was short. Anyway he said he would order the two sizes for the day and decision would take place then. Importantly he said he understood that I wanted a look that would still allow ‘people to take me seriously’ HAHAHAHA love it. Spot on. From the day of consult to BA day – it was GRUELLING emotionally! Is the size implant 270cc going to be too small? I saw pics of someone with 250cc and she is a 10DD! What?! Saw 270cc on another girl and she looks like a small C. Another girl with 315cc and her boobs where exactly what I wanted. WHAT IS MINE GOING TO BE??? Also what if my boobs turn out wonky? What if my scar keloids? I even questioned why I was even doing this procedure, I mean sometimes my boobs don’t look too bad…… in a padded bra that is!! Who am I kidding I must have this surgery haha! 28th March BA day, everyone at hospital was lovely. Even the nurses were telling me how lovely and good Dr Rastogi is. I had my boyfriend come with me this time and I saw him smile when the nurse said this. Throughout the waiting period up until today he was the one always reminding me not to stress ‘ Hun you have the best person to do your surgery’. Mind at ease! Dr Rastogi came in after to draft me up. I quickly took out my phone and showed him Misha’s post op 2-month photo (she is one of the members on this forum). I had told him I really liked her shape but I am realistic that I would not have her size. He said it was possible. Next thing you know I am laying in theatre, Dr Rastogi attempts to make small talk with me, but I can't reply because I am out! Woke up pain-free, just in and out of sleep. Dr Rastogi came to see me and noted a bit of bruising on my top right chest, just above my breast. Says he has never seen that before. I hardly remember our conversation to be honest other than that he wanted me to remove the surgical incision tapes in 2 days and that he had one more patient to operate on. All I wanted to do was stuff that ham and cheese sandwich in my mouth. I got up myself from the recliner couch, walked to the bathroom and got myself dressed. Went home. The end. I expected painful days post-op, but the most pain I experienced has been the swelling that heads south towards your ribs. When you walk you can feel the swelling move/jiggle with you. Such an awful pain. Other than that, using my arms was fine. I was chopping coriander, setting the dinner table etc. Just couldn’t do the heavy things like opening or closing the car door. The pain and even breast transforming improved for me at day 9, I mean each day got easier, but day 9 began to be a peace of cake. The only weird sensations that still remain is the middle cleavage section is still swollen and sensitive to touch. Left breast side boob not as prominent as the right side, 50% loss of sensation on the left breast, including nipple. Funny enough, last night I walked out to the servo to grab a drink. I wore a singlet and jumper out, only to notice that my right nipple was saying HELLO to the cashier guy, whilst the left nipple was being shy. I realized it is not only loss of sensation, but the left nipple doesn’t even know when its cold too! Haha Anyway I hope it all comes back in time. Feed back from family and close friends is that my new assets are a tad too big. Length-wise. Too round as well. I love honesty and I appreciate it, but this time I have to admit it, it cut me up inside to hear this. BA is not only a physically changing transformation, there is also emotions attached to it. Emotions I didn’t expect to go through. My response to them is ‘ HELLLO I AM DAY 9 give me a break!’. Secretly I am hoping they start to look more natural and teardrop shaped. I have a little doubt though because some of the girls who I’ve seen on this forum with teardrop implants, post-op day 1 too, their breast already have a natural shape to it, including the swelling. From day 1 mine have been round, I don’t see the tear drop resemblance. I am happy either way, not so sure about my family though (by family I am speaking of my sister and mum). Having said all this, experience emotion has been 5/10 (it was challenging for me). Dr Rastogi himself and his work 9.5/10. The 0.5 will come when my left breast starts having the same side boob as the right… I KID! He is great! Whether I made the right decision to go head with BA 10/10 How helpful the members of the forum have been 11/10! Special thumbs up to Jamily, Bex31 and Gloria for the early prep talk days when I first joined seeking feedback on Dr R J Xxx Ok So I drafted that up last night but decided to add a bit more to it as I had my 10-day Post-Op consult with Dr Rastogi today 8th April 2013. What to expect? The nurse will take you into his office, ask you to wear a gown so you are only in your undies and shoes. She asks you if there have been any problems recovering etc. I tell her my only issue is the left breast not yet round as the right. Not really an issue, just a progress update I guess. Dr Rastogi comes in and assures me that my upper pole will straighten, swelling between the breasts is quite significant and I should expect that to go down too. Left breast will round out more and cleavage will come in. If anything my lower pole will get bigger. I also learnt that I had DUAL-PLACEMENT. So my implants are not completely under the muscle. Only about ¼ of the implant is covered by the top muscles. This is done this way as my pre-breast had nil tissue at the top so under the muscle for the top part of the implant made sense. The rest of the implant is not under anything. I feel the implants have already softened, more at the top than bottom though. I am seeing him again for a 12-week post up in July. Fingers crossed by then I have the results I’ve been longing for! Xxx
  6. Hi everyone, (sydney based) This is a long read, but Im very nervous and want to make sure I make the right decisions! I have wanted BA for a VERY long time! I'm almost 21 and would love to get myself a nice set of boobs for my 21st! I do however, need to get back down to my goal weight of 58kg, Im currently 70kg so it may take a while, but once i get 5kg off that weight I will be going to a consultation. I'm currently a 12a and am 164 cm tall. Because I have pretty much no boobs they are a little far apart and Im scared I wont get clevage if i get a BA. I want a NATURAL look and FEEL! (if possible) but I want to go as big as it can while still looking real, because I figure if I outlay all that money I may aswell go all out! (the ZOO magazine look just is not for me) I have SO many questions!!So if you can answer ANY, please go ahead!! 1. What kind of impants FEEL the most real? (Do ANY implants even feel close to real?) 2. How long after surgery until you can start wearing normal bras and parading them around? 3. Do brazillian implants really not move? 4. What are the major differences with real boobs vs fake boobs? I like Dr Rastogi but after reading things about brazillian impants being rock hard and not moving im going off the idea of him. I saw a girl who was over the moon with Dr Miroshnik and I researched his work and loved it And everyone on here raves about Dr Dona and the TCI but I see their before and after shots and just really hate them... if anyone can help change my opinion on that that would be great as this option is much cheaper than my first two! If you can give me advice on the 3 (or recommend your own!!) suregons and let me know how real they feel and look and how the service was, that would be much appreciated!! Thank you so much in advance!
  7. Hi I've been reading various posts on this wonderful forum trying to gather info and thought I should introduce myself... I have always wished my boobs were a 10C and was holding out hope of ending up bigger after babies - sadly not the case lol. I went from a small 10B to a 10A the year prior to getting my baby boy (the downside of a newfound love of running!). Loved having milk boobs but alas they didn't care to stick around ;( I have now finished breastfeeding bub #2, back to a (slightly smaller, less firm) 10A and ready to take the plunge. I have decided to get brazilians (I think!), probably teardrop pending surgeon advice and I want to look like a C cup. Would love to hear from anyone that has (or is getting) brazilians and went for a natural looking result. Also did you get dual plane or unders? Was wondering if there is a difference between the 2 placements with how firm the lower half of breasts feel over time? Was your final size (not bra size) different to what you expected? Any other advice is appreciated and would be very grateful if anyone is willing to share their pics I am booked for a consult with Dr Rastogi next month. Any reviews would be great. M10972 has been kind enough to answer lots of my Q's already and has great results, but think I should stop bugging her and share my Q's around lol TIA Sapphire
  8. This is my first post in the forum, after obsessing over it for months and months! It has helped me so much in getting to this point, my surgery for a BA with Dr Rastogi is booked in for tomorrow! In less than 24hrs I'll be in the hospital, perhaps even on the operating table! I'm currently a 12B, and am hoping for D/DD. Dr Rastogi and I have decided to go with Silimed Natural Furry Brazilian implants, with a submuscular dual placement. I'm a PT, very active in the gym, lifting weights regularly, so it's important for me that my implants cater for this. I am not nervous at all! I know I couldn't possibly have picked a better surgeon, take a look at his website, he is well known for his beautiful, natural looking work. I had done alot of research into various surgeons, had another consultation with a surgeon in Melbourne (where I'm from, Rastogi is in Sydney), looked into overseas surgery, but within 5 minutes of my consult with Dr. R, I knew he was my surgeon. His attention to detail is flawless, and he really looks at your body and considers exactly what it is YOU, as an individual will need, then makes all his choices from there. Which of course is the way it should be with all surgeons for such an important surgery, but sadly isn't from my experience with others. I have always been conscious of the fact that I am bottom heavy, carry all my weight on my thighs, and the Dr spoke about how he would position the implants to balance this out. I will post again as soon as I am out of surgery, and up for typing!! Would love to provide as much information as possible for others considering BA
