Surgery/ Procedure

Name of Surgeon and Date of Surgery




  1. Hi Ladies! First timer undergoing surgery here, so I’m super excited and nervous on my way to the hospital right now! :$ Im currently a deflated 10C and will be getting the 425CC Motiva Ergonomix Demi, I would love to see D&F pics / post-op scar pics & start this journey with anyone getting them done this month as well! My main concern is with scarring — what products would you recommend and any post-op tips, (scar management products I should get/recovery bra recommendations) would be greatly appreciated! Thanks ! x
  2. I'm 59...still, in 2 days I'll be 60, and, this is my 60th birthday present to myself. I knew I was going to have a face lift one day, and last year I thought now is the time, so I started researching. I read many reviews and watched many Youtube videos. Thailand seemed like my best option in terms of reputation and expense. However, when contacting places like Destination Beauty and Cosmeditour, and after considering several doctors I always had the feeling that it might not be reliable or safe, although the reviews were always good. So, I decided to do it at home in Sydney. I did my res
  3. Hey girls! This is my first post; just looking for some advice on multiple things to do with the surgery. I've planned the BA at the beginning of my travels for at least 6 months. We're going to Thailand, Dubai, then travelling around Europe. I know and understand the recovery time and the process of a BA and will be taking time in Thailand and Dubai particularly to relax and recover for a few weeks to begin with and have a very supportive boyfriend to help me throughout. I've booked my BA with Dr. Veerawat in Phuket in February. From the online consultation, I've discovered my breasts a
  4. Hello lovelies! I am booked in for a bilateral mastopexy and breast augmentation on March the 7th 2019 YAY! My husband and I are just working out how much time he will need to take off to help me with my recovery? Like how long until I will be able to get myself in and out of bed or anything else that I just won’t be able to manage on my own? Like a few days... or weeks...etc? We plan on getting his parents to help with our three kids but how long will I need help with the really up close and personal stuff for me? Tanks in advance gals xx
  5. 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
  6. Hi Ladies, just wanting to hear recovery stories of full anchor lift with implants. I am booked for 4 weeks time and just wanting to get my head around what the first few weeks post op will be like. My surgeon highly recommends an “active recovery” and suggests back to all normal daily activities (other than lifting anything heavier than 5kg) from the day after surgery. Is this practical? I have three kids aged 8,6 and 18mth and am just trying to determine how much help I’ll have. For the first 5 days I’ll have my mother in law and husband on hand to help but after that I will
  7. I had my surgery this AM and omg my stomach is killing me. It feels like I ate thanksgiving dinner and then some. I have had a tooooon of water, collage, and some fiber filled snack. Is this normal? I’m not even 24 hours in.
  8. Hey ladies I am hoping to have lipo surgery on my stomach and thighs I live in Cambodia, so I am thinking to have my procedure in Bangkok, as I understand that the surgeons there are very experienced and it's a short flight for me, plus I've visited Bangkok numerous times and know the city Can you please share your own lipo experiences with me? surgeon recommendation Hospital recommendation can I expect scarring afterwards? What was your recovery time? I don't particularly want to use an agent / company, as my partner will be escorting me and staying wi
  9. Hey everyone, I had my surgery on Wednesday and am so happy and relieved that I had it done! I've noticed straight away though, that my left breast is more numb, and now and then I feel a bubbling sensation in it; the right breast is fine, other than the standard pain that is controlled with pain killers. I'm also wearing a stabiliser to help them drop and push them inwards (I had naturally wide-set breasts). Side note - I had fat grafting done to create cleavage, as my sternum was quite high and wide. Has anyone else experienced this sort of bubbling sensation?
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Hi all! Ive just started a new job relatively recently as a store person on a mine site. This involves lifting heavy objects, unpacking boxes, lots of walking etc... My BA is booked for the 5th of October (under the muscle) as I work shift work I'm not required to return until the 11th as I'm on days off. Please bear in mind I work 14 days on and 7 days off. My current options I'm throwing around are. - Get put on light duties for the following 3 + weeks and work from the Wednesday (the 11th) 7 days post op (get a medical certificate) - Get a medical certifi
  13. Hey ladies, I was just wondering if i could get an indepth look into how you felt the first few days and the first few weeks after surgery! Eg. How you felt The first few days, the first few weeks, when were you able to lift your kids, drive a car, go swimming, wear a post op bra ect ect! The more information the better ??
  14. 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
  15. Hello there Ladies (& Gents i guess!) I finally made the plunge and had a small reduction / lift (mainly removal of excess skin) in August 2015. WOOOHOO, BEST thing i have ever done!! Good-bye saggy boobs Right from the get go my recovery has been slow, bruised a lot more than 'normal' etc. I feel fine, have had no bad pain or infections etc. I have been taking it easy and doing as I am told in terms of limitations with returning to exercise etc. I have anchor + lollipop scars However! A month post op i had a small 'split' just under the nipple when i was in Bali for a wedding (wors

  18. 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
  19. Hi Everyone, I'm booked in for an abdominoplasty and brachioplasty with Dr Michelle Lodge on Friday 23 October 2015 at Calvary North Adelaide. I'm 28 and haven't had kids yet but plan to in the future (if Mr Right shows up) after having lost over 65kg with the assistance of Lapband surgery in 2011 and working out tirelessly at the gym there was just too much skin that couldn't be toned! I've gone through the forums and it seems that there are so many extremes with regards to the procedure and recovery. Has anyone had these two procedures together? Has anyone had their surgery with Dr Lodge?
  20. I'm 31, 163cm 59kg and currently 12B. I've been considering implants for quite some time and now that I'm finished having children I'm almost ready. Just a few things I need advice on, from people who've been through this. Basically I'm worried about recovery time. I have 2 children (1 and 5) who need me to carry/lift them. Also I'm worried about all the house duties that require my attention, particularly hanging out washing. I plan to have surgery when I have 4 weeks off work, so am not too worried about the work side of things. It's all the home duties that I'm concerned about. I will also
  21. How many of you felt or got sick after surgery? I'm super phobic about it. If you did get or feel sick, was it the medication or pain that caused it? Any anti nausea meds that worked for you?
  22. In May I went and had a consult with Dr Tavakoli, I was welcomed and made feel,comfortable Jen had answered all my questions via email. I attended the consult and knew I didn't need to see another Dr I had found my guy. Looked at them and knew what would suit me talked me through that just a lift by its self was beneficial to me and we can discuss implants after I'm healed. Due to some unforeseen circumstance I had to change surgery dates around and this was never an issue Jen just accommodated my needs. The 3rd of November I come for pre op consult all questions were answered and I was ready
  23. I'm two weeks away from surgery, already writing up my list to make sure I don't forget anything. I know theres other lists on this site of things to take but I though i'd start a newer thread with the 5 things everyone found most useful to them during recovery ?
  24. So I'm booked in for septo-rhinoplasty this week with Ian Carlisle, has anyone on this forum had rhinoplasty with him? What was your experience like & are you happy with your new nose? I'm having my bump removed, tip lifted and more defined, and a graft put in the tip as my columella is retracted. The main things I'm nervous/concerned about are that I don't know what to expect in terms of recovery and it I'll be in a lot of pain or discomfort, & I'm worried my splint will come off & I won't like my new nose I'm aware that it takes a few months for swelling to go down. Does anyone
