  1. Hello everyone, I'm scheduled to have my breast implants removed. We decided to get a lift at the same time as explant but unfortunately due to my partner being off work for his own surgery, we can't get finance for the amount needed to explant and lift. At the time of I consulted with a surgeon I was breastfeeding and the second time I was almost finished weaning. So since stopping and having my milk dry up, my breasts have changed again! I just wanted some opinions on whether or not I could get away without lifting? Will they look ok without it? I was a B cup before implants and a DD now with silicone subglandular implants. I'm worried about significant sagging and loose skin especially after having and feeding 3 children since getting the implants. I don't want to have to cancel the date because of painful contracture, these things need to come out.. but I don't want to go ahead and explant only if I'll need to pay and go under for surgery again to lift if I end up looking a mess. Anyway, I would appreciate some input. Thank you!
  2. I’m new on here! im booked next month for the op, I have been diagnosed with mild tuberous breasts. They have always bothered me. if you’ve had the correction for tuberous breasts, are you happy with your results? Super nervous! Is it really worth it? im early 20’s petite, they suggest 325cc silicone high profile for me. and on a side note.. if you have had implants for a long period of time, any complications you’ve experienced? How long did you implants last before you had to have them redone? thanks!:)
  3. Hey guys I'm 172cm, around 57kg and currently wearing around a 34A cup. My left breast is slightly smaller than my right and the nipple is also a bit different (slightly inverted and smaller areola). I'm booked in for a BA on November 14, so very soon! My surgeon has recommended 250cc subglandular to achieve a C cup and balance me out, as I am very petite but with broader hips. It's been difficult finding photos of girls getting implants as small as mine. I realise they are small, but when I wear the sizers I feel like they look huge! Can anyone relate/does anyone have photos or stories of a similar journey? Regarding the asymmetry, I'm getting the same sized implants in both breasts as my surgeon says that often times the smaller one "catches up" over time, and if not, the difference in size will be much less noticeable with larger breasts. Very keen to chat to people with similar experiences! Feel free to PM me as well
  4. sorry to clog up the forums but iv learnt some new stuff i wanted to share with everyone. If your interested in reducing the incision scars from surgery then something thats been a big hit in the USA is Hydrocolloid dressings. Yes in these forums i tend to talk alot about the USA but i find alot of advancment in plastic surgery procedures, soon (2-5 yrs later) end up mainstream in plastic surgery and adopted worldwide. I think these new dressings are going to be one of them, and so far their are lots of satisfied girls in the USA who cant even see their incision lines anymore. the whole area on the dressing is adhesive so it prevents tension from the skin putting pressure on the incision line and keeps the incison close together. It uses a method of healing known as "moist healing" ... sounds dangerous but it pretty much takes the place of a scab over a wound, so the inside if the wound focuses on the mending of damaged tissue, and the body doesnt produce to much collegan in the area which contributes to keloids and larger scaring. "Scarring is a natural process that happens when the skin repairs itself, for example from a cut or an abrasion. They occur when the outer layer of the skin, the epidermis is cut and the injury extends to the dermis. The organism is not able to replace the destroyed, highly specialised tissue in the same way. Instead, the wound is “repaired” with connective tissue: In order to heal this wound or injury, the body produces a larger quantity of collagen to repair the broken and damaged skin tissue. Collagen serves to ‘bind’ the broken skin together, helping to close and heal the area. Even after the wound has healed the body continues to direct collagen to the site resulting in changes to the size and shape over time. The resulting scar does not have good blood circulation, is sometimes uneven and is less elastic. Scars can sometimes be raised areas (hypertrophic scars) or have a sunken appearance, depending on the damage done to underlying layers of skin and tissue. Also, variations in colour are possible. How to best treat a wound and prevent scarring Leaving wounds uncovered or using standard plasters and bandages usually leads into formation of a scab which can lead to unsightly scars. Nowadays there is a lot can you do to ensure fast and speedy recovery if you have suffered from an impairment to your skin – all thanks to new technologies and medical insights. Be smart and make the best of these scientific insights In order for your wound to form new skin tissue, new cells need to form. Cell growth though, thrives on moist conditions! The principle aim of moist wound therapy is to create and maintain those optimal moist conditions for your skin to renew itself. The best way to treat a wound is to keep it covered with a plaster that provides moist wound healing conditions at all times, meanwhile sealing the wound from outside bacterias with its waterproof adhesive to the skin. It will speed up the repair of your skin. It will prevent scabs from forming. Because it will keep your wound supple. Because it will reduce the risk of scarring and ensure beautiful healing. Because it is skin friendly.

  7. Hello Everyone and a big big thank you to everyone who shares their experiences here! It's so helpful!! My15 year old saline implants have started to play up due to back to back babies/nursing and dramatic fat loss. This has caused the port on one side to rub and become painful at various times. Ive had ultrasound/mammogram and consulted with Tony Connel who confirmed they should come out fairly soon. I have total faith in him and his expertise. Im in two minds as to whether I really want new implants as it seems saline is not used too often any longer. I'm not convinced there is enough data available on the safety of cohesive silicone and at 41 and having had no major issue yet from my current set, I just don't want to take the risk. Im 5'7 and 54kg so I have little body fat (particularly on my upper body) so an Explant only will leave me looking pretty sad. My current size has me at a 10DD. I have no sagging, which is unbelievable given I've fed 5 babies!!! But as mentioned I've lost volume at the top and my pockets allow for quite a bit of movement. So I'm wondering if anyone has had a similar decision to make or knows of a WA surgeon who uses saline still? Or any recommendations/advice? Any info will help! Xx
  8. Hi ladies! I am booked in for my BA 3 weeks from now. I am 173cm tall (5ft9) and about 72kg (160lbs) My surgeon suggested the 450cc extra/ultra high profile implants. I'm just concerned that they will be too narrow for my chest? She didn't measure my BWD and I did at home (although no guarantee its correct) and I ended up with 14cm. My surgeon did make a remark that I had a wide chest so I'm wondering why she chose UHP? Does anyone with a BWD similar to mine have UHP implants? I am thinking of going for 450cc HP round silicone overs (mentor) implants. Do you think that would be better then the UHP? Or do you think I should be going up in cc's abit more since I am lowering the profile? I wear a 34B bra, what size do you think those implants would get me to?
  9. Hey! Thought you all may be interested in this fun video. The guy drives over a saline & silicone implant to see what happens! I found it quite interesting hahaha
  10. Hi everyone. Finally gathered enough courage to go for the BA procedure, sitting at a small A cup with signs of tuberous symptoms (knocked back by TCI based on this reason). I've done plenty of research. I've asked around. I've talked to doctor friends, friends who have gotten BA done. And this is probably half of my problem as I am confused with so many options. Ideally I would like to go to a C full cup (im 5'5 at 62 kgs) silicone gel, round, over the muscle, preferably armpit incision or infra-mammary. Really looking at most painless (isn't everybody) and currently have these doctors shortlisted. My best bet is to for with a plastic/cosmetic specialist due to the "tubular" knock back. Dr Stephen Chan Dr Cary Kailis Dr Mark Hanikeri Dr Robert Goldman Dr Chris Allen Looking at advice for the most pain/cost effective-with great post op care advice/reviews on doctors or any other suggestions. I'm trying not to feel terrified of the procedure/pain. So any advice is highly appreciated. Many thanks in advance ladies! Lastly, generally speaking-how long after consultation can you book in for surgery?
  11. hi, I am 3 years post-op now and still unhappy with my scars. I have added my pictures so you can see what I am dealing with and hopefully some of you can give me some tips, ideas and recommendations. I have been using bio oil for some time now, but want something a bit more invasive to get better results. I am 3 years post-op, and YES I probably should have done something more invasive at the time when the scars where 'fresh' but I am a goose, and didn't do anything! Would love to hear from anyone who can recommend a good product or treatment
  12. Hi ladies Has anyone tried any of the above silicone gels for assisting scars to dissappear? ?? Which is better??
  13. Hi every one so it's official my surgical fee. Implant costs and hospital free are all paid for!!! I have booked in for the 30th of October (2014) with dr Darren Molony through Adelaide plastic associates! My stats are 163cm tall, 64kg and currently a 12B. I'm having high profile 375cc silicone textured round implants under the muscle! I'm so freaking excited I'm hoping to post before and after pictures to show the results and help any other ladies out there with similar stats to me dr Darren Molony was very understanding, honest and patient with me, so ATM the idea of the surgery doesn't bother me at all because I feel I'm in safe hands Any advice for a new BA girl through her recovery such as what I should but before hand and how I should cope with the pain?????
  14. Hi Ladies I know It has been discussed at length somewhere else. I am 4 weeks post now and rubbing the following into my boobies. Jojoba Oil Argan Oil Rosehip Oil Bio-Oil Bepanthen (specifically on the incisions after oiling) I like it especially before putting a bra on. I have read on the American forums a lot of talk about Silicone sheets or Silicone gels which are apparently THE BEST. These sheets are about $100. The gels vary in price. Has anyone used them? Also, does anyone else massage the scar??
  15. Hi all, I can't decide what size I want ... I am a small B and I want a D! When I try the implants I'm thinking 350cc but everyone says go up a size because ull be disappointed, so 375cc.. But I'm scared they won't look nice if they are too big... I'm 165cm and 50kgs! Arrghh this is so hard !!
  16. I know there are heaps of girls out there who love the fake look (and damn, does it look good sometimes!) but I'm wondering if there are many girls who have gone from a super small size and opted for something more natural and less obvious? I'm an empty 10A and only want to go up to a C-cup MAX. I also love the tear drop shape where the bottom is fuller and the breast slopes down a bit. Is there anyone out there who can give me some advice, experience or info on this size of implants? Thanks
