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!
I need to have a BCC cut out of my nostril and I am nervous about the outcome. I want the surgeon who does it to be an artist who can reconstruct my nostril so it looks the same. Does anyone have any reviews for nose work for Dr. Ravi Mahajani and Dr. Shiby Ninan. Darwin is so small I'm wondering if I should go to Sydney where the doctors might have more experience with noses. It's hard to find reviews on these two for nose surgery, maybe because Darwin is so small they haven't done many.
Hi all This is my first post on here. Last year I tested positive for the BRCA1 (breast cancer mutation) gene, which means I have up to an 87% chance of developing breast cancer in my lifetime. To prevent getting the dreaded C-word, I elected to undergo a nipple-sparing bilateral breast mastectomy which I had done last week. During the same surgery, my fantastic PS also inserted tissue expanders as part of the first phase of reconstruction with the idea being that the expanders will eventually be exchanged for breast implants. I was wondering whether anyone on this forum has had this procedure done? I've got so many questions running through my mind and was hoping that someone may be able to share their experiences? - When should I expect the pain to ease up? It is officially "day 5" today and I am in agony, especially when I move. I am taking Tramal and Endone. - I'm going to see my PS this week for my first "expansion" - is this very painful? How does it compare to the post surgery pain? - Did your nipple sensation return, and if so, how long did it take? Right now I can't feel them. Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing back. x
I recently created a set of pre-op and predictive post-op 3D sculpted models for a patient to forcast the outcome of his rhinoplasty and jaw reconstruction. These physical models were carved from a block of material using a computer controlled machine. This was all done in conjunction with the surgeon before the surgery had taken place. The patient was able to view the two sculpted models together with photo-realistic 3D computer images in order to gain the closest experience to actually meeting himself after surgery The patient's response was that it was invaluable to be able to touch, feel and see the outcome in 3D before committing to surgery. What are people’s thoughts about this? If you are considering facial cosmetic or reconstructive surgery how much would you value a before and after 3 dimensional sculpture to help make your decision before committing to surgery?
