Hi, With my consult TOMORROW and surgery in just 36 days, I am SO excited. The only thing that concerns me is that my surgeon prefers to use Eurosilicon, has anybody had those implants before? I have mainly been researching Mentor & Allergan so I am very confident in those particular two. I did email the institute and ask if I would have a choice even though he prefers to use Eurosilicon. So do I stick to the ones I have researched or go with whatever he prefers? Also if anybody has also been to DR. Andrew Greensmith or Melbourne institute of plastic surgery? Ps. Eurosilicon isn't FDA approved - isn't even allowed in the USA. There are a small amount of negatively sided articles online about them. Any advice would be great. Thanks so much, xoxo
Hi everyone! Just a quick note to let everyone know I have my BA today with Dr Victor Lee at The Cosmetic Institute Bondi Junction, and I wanted to share my experience because right now, I couldn't be happier! Things started well from the get go when I got a call from Amy, one of the Cosmetic Consultants, asking if I could come in early as they were running ahead of schedule, so I ended up getting to the clinic about 20 minutes before I was due in. The girls at reception were lovely, and so was everyone else I dealt with - the cosmetic consultants, the nurses, the anaesthetist, and of course, Dr Lee himself. Everyone was so friendly and kind, and I felt very much ease - I didn't feel stressed about the procedure at all. If anything, I was more stressed in the lead up making sure end of month went well (I work in sales) and making sure my apartment was tidy lol! After being checked in, I got changed into my gown, hair net and boots (so sexy lol!) in the pre-op room. I then saw the nurse to confirm paperwork; one of the cosmetic consultants to take pre-op pictures; Dr Lee to confirm my implant size (220cc still the largest I could go!); and then finally the anaesthetise, so that should could put the catheter in. I was then led into the theatre room and laid down on the operating table. The twilight anaesthetic worked so quick - I remember a bit of stinging in my hand when it was being administered, and then the next thing I knew I was being gently woken up by one of the nurses. I felt a tiny bit groggy, but the nurses took good care of me. They helped me to get dressed, and then gave me some water, a lollipop and biscuits to help me wake up. I can;t stress enough how kind and friendly the nurses were - I feel bad that I've forgotten the name of one of the nurses, but I remember it was Chloe who wheeled me out to my friends car. I'm only about 3 hours post op - no real pain as such, just a bit of tightness in my chest and some tenderness in my sides. I've already had a sneak peek at m new assets, and I love them already! They're sitting bit high, which is to be expected of course, but they are definitely the perfect size for me, and they have a beautiful shape already. I can see already that they will be absolutely AMAZING when they drop and fluff! Dr Lee's judgement was spot on, as well as his artistic ability! I am so very pleased right now! I will post progress pics soon
okay where do I start.... I had my operation on 27th December so just 5 weeks ago.... directly after the op I could smell a medical smell coming from my boobs.. I thought it was the dressing and antiseptic solution... I wasn't worried... but now 5 weeks after I still can smell it!!( I wash myself thoroughly twice a day, more if I go to the gym!!) I was doing my yoga on saturday and my head was tuck in my chest and there is it again the medical smell!!! I never smell anything like it!!! so so so weird.... I google it and on breast implant forum some people say it is the GA... but why only my boobs does have that smell and not my whole body?? doesn't make sense to me if it was GA.. is it the silicon I can smell thru my skin??? arghhh!!
