  1. Hi girls, I've just booked my BA with Dr. Kwok at the Cosmetic Institute for mid-July. I've seen pictures of his work and I am confident that I've made the right decision! I'm a little nervous at the moment because I'm still deciding if I want to go for a D or a DD cup (I'm barely an A cup at the moment!) . I'm travelling all the way from Melbourne and thought I'd better make the most of it. Anybody have any reviews on Dr. Kwok? From what I've seen so far, people have been generally very positive about him. I'm very new to all of this and would love any recommendations, tips or any bit of information that would make me less nervous!
  2. Hi ladies, I live in Melbourne & am wondering where is the best place to get breast augmentation done? I've being doing lots of research but would love to know prices especially at the Victorian Cosmetic Institute. Also if anyone has being to the cosmetic institute in Queensland or Sydney please leave a review! I am happy to travel insterstate but need help and reviews! Thanks.
  3. Hi Ladies, I am booked in with Dr Lee on February 20th and I'm getting pretty excited. I'm just tossing up sizes, I am currently a 8B and I'm quite a small person... Like I'm 22 and weigh 45kg.. so you can imagine. I have had my consult with Dr Lee and I cant decide what size I want. its a Toss up between 365cc & 385cc. I'm worried about if I go 365cc that they may be too small cause I know you can loose size after an amount of time or if I go 385cc and they are too big.. Both Dr lee and the girls at TCI say there is barely any difference in size and that if I'm worried about too small then pick 385cc... but I'm very tiny and I don't wanna look like an idiot if they're massive. also 385cc is the biggest Dr Lee will allow me to go, which also freaks me out about size. I have tried the bra on with implants in but its hard to judge Do you girls have any before and after photos with either 385cc or 365cc for me to see? If you are also a very little girl that would give me a better idea of if they will look too big. Thank you xx
  4. Hi ladies I'm a Perth girl considering heading to Sydney for BA surgery with the cosmetic institute. I'm estimating my costs including accommodation and flights to be around 8k. Surgery here in Perth is very expensive, but if anyone has any insight on cheap surgery in Perth, that would be great. I'm not looking to get extremely large breast. I'm a very small frame and tall, I personally don't like the very fake look, so attempting to avoid that. I currently only have an 8a cup, and I'm not symmetrical. I'm looking for my end result to be a C cup. If any ladies who are happy to share before and after photos of small implants from TCI would be greatly appreciated. Or anyone in general who can recommended a great cheap surgeon who did a smaller BA. Thank you
  5. Hi all, I have my phone consultation with Dr Miroshnik next week for a Breast augmentation. I'm so excited, as well as very very nervous. I am 100% sure that i want to go ahead with the surgery with him from looking at his reviews and all the photos on his page. I'm 22, 5ft 1 and weigh 50kgs, - my cup size is (i think) in between an a and a b - i don't really fill out any bras, even with a push up- which i hate. I've wanted to get my breasts enhanced since i was 16 and have finally decided to do it! Initially, i was going to go with the cosmetic institute (had booked my surgery date and everything) but... it just felt too rushed (everything) from speaking with them over the phone, to booking the surgery and surgeon. the only reason why i wanted to go with them was... - i liked some of the 'natural' looks that had been produced, the price and the fact that its located in australia. i cancelled it pretty much last minute, as my gut feeling was a no. Also, it sounds more like a simple transaction for them. Patients in, patients out. Where the patients that have seen Dr M have all said it was extremely welcoming, not rushed etc. A few month had passed after i cancelled with TCI, and i discovered Dr Miroshnik on facebook. His work was/is amazing! - so then i followed him on all social media after reading reviews i found out that he charges between 10k - 14k (not sure if that included hospital/anaesthetic fees) which was over double of what i had saved for TCI and then i needed to think about flight costs (melb to sydney) and accomodation costs. - i found out that Dr Miroshnik offers corporate fees with QUEST bondi junction (so that's a huge help) i also looked into AirbNb, but it was still so expensive. I'm going to be taking out a partial loan to help pay for this surgery, i just really want it done, and done to the exact way i want - where it compliments my body as well. Just a few questions for past patients or current patients. - Where did you stay? - How long did it take for you to recover? - Under the muscle or over the muscle? - Where will the incision be? - What foods did you eat prior and post op? - Any general information that you could pass on? Thank you T
  6. Hi there Has anyone on here had Eyelid rejuvenation at The Cosmetic Institute in Sydney? Any feedback, photos, preferred surgeon? Thanks!!
  7. Hi Everyone! My name is Samantha and ive just joined the forum! so if i ask any questions that have already been answered before on this site, sorry! Im 155cm tall, i weigh just under 45kgs and im 23 with a empty 10B I've been wanting to have BA for years now and ive just decided that enough is enough and its time to jump in and get my dream boobs finally. Im going to bali in the next few months and am 100% sure i need them done before i go (getting pretty sick of looking like a 12yo boy in all my photos) So has anybody got any feedback on MAC? I've read all the good reviews but find it a little difficult to believe there is not one bad review and why! I have a couple thousand saved up but need to finance the rest (cannot wait till i save it, itll take way too long) Tossing up between Dr Ali, Dr Tand or Dr Val. Any pro's/con's? Really starting to feel a little light headed from all the information, my partner is very worried and i need all the info i can get to calm him down a little
  8. Hi, I'm new to this site this is my first post. I'm booked in to TCI in December for my consult with Dr Dash and then my surgery is in January. My BMI is currently to high for the surgery as advised by TCI, even though I am a heathly 23 year old female. There is 4 weeks in between my consult and my surgery giving me more time to lose those extra kgs, my question is do I need to be at my goal weight for the consult? Or just for the surgery? Has anyone else had a problem? Do they still operate if your BMI is higher than 25? Thankyou in advance
  9. Looking into getting a Ba in early 2016 but not sure on where to go in the Brisbane region! I have saw first hand work from tci and the work was flawless I had no idea the breasts were even fake! And I've seen some from cosmeditour (they were Thailand though) but they were also awesome and I'm wanting to know people's experiences on both companies or any other ones as well please and thank you
  10. Hi, im looking at getting my BA hopefully this year but im having trouble deciding what dr to go to. Iv been researching ALOT of research and i love the look of all dr kwok's patients but i also know a few girls personally who have been to dr richardson and they look good too 😕 im so torn. I would have gone to dr kwok hands down if it weren't for the cosmetic institute being all over aca this passed few weeks 😔 But i did notice the people who had issues were in nsw where im in qld so i would be going to the goldcoast hospital to have mine done. Has anyone had their BA with either surgeon? If so would you recommend? Any feedback will be very appreciated Thanks 😊
  11. I had my surgery on the 1st of April 2015 at Parramatta by Dr Dash. I was a b cup and wanted to go 615cc and dr Dash aggreded to go 615cc everything was good at the consultation. Come the day of surgery as dr dash said we can't do 615cc so he suggested 420cc which I was not happy with so we argued to get to 525cc which he refused to go any bigger. Out of frustration I just agreeded. A week after surgery for my follow up dr dash did not do my stitches properly they were hanging out and they were not done properly sever pain fro my stitches. I am now 6months post op my extra high profile implants are not that high and they sag when I bend over I have numbness in my nipples and back constantly and one boob has a dramatic difference in size to the other. I am not very happy they are way to small defiantly getting another boob job in the future but not from the cosmetic institute bad experience and when ever I want to talk to him he allways has an excuse to not ever discuss the situation with him. has any body else had bad experiences?
  12. I have received my email from TCI confirming my surgery in two weeks and they say that if at any point and time they feel is necessary they can cancel the surgery if it is going to effect your physical or mental health ..... I suffer from anxiety which they are not letting me take my herbal medication for the next 4 weeks so I won't be very happy if they make the decision not to operate because of my anxiety when I have already let them know and said it will be fine . Has anyone heard of there surgery being cancelled due to anxiety, as I do get nauseas with my anxiety? Thank you !
  13. Hi Ladies! I'm not sure if anyone is already familiar but I have a few amazing sites for holiday rentals in Australia if you are looking for somewhere to stay during your surgery: www.stayz.com.au www.airbnb.com.au www.homeaway.com.au Rather than a hotel you save a lot of costs and can rent out your own apartment during your stay! There are some breath taking places available. I am travelling to The Cosmetic Institute later this year and have come across so many gorgeous places in Bondi and my friend and I will definitely be going with one of these places when we book I just thought the alternative for hotels was way too good not to share. Hopefully this helps some of you x
  14. Hi ladies Has anyone travelled interstate to have BA at TCI without any friends/family members? I may be travelling alonw and am looking to find out if others have done the same. In particular I'd like to know what you did for immediate aftercare (i.e. getting back to the hotel and the first 10 hours). Thanks in advance
  15. hi ladies, i have seen alot of positive feedback for the cosmetic institute lately, but the question is what are the negatives? Has anyone got any bad feedback for us to be aware of for TCI in Sydney!? Any one had issues with their results? Would love to know, as i am booked in to get mine with Dr Tang in July. Thank you x

  17. Hi Ladies, I have my surgery booked in for the end of March, my surgeon is Dr Lee. I just wanted to see what other peoples past experiences are with him, are you happy with your results, how are your incision scars ect ect. Many thanks in advance !
  18. Well ladies I'm home! Stuck with the 420cc XHP, as dr kwok said i sould get a lovely round look from them, but at the last minute switched from under the muscle to a dial plane placement to give me a bit of a mini lift Arrived at tci bondi arounf 12, there was a bit of a wait for my room to be ready, then got changed into the lovely surgical gown, booties and hairnet and had my preop photos taken, then wrapped the heated blanket around me and watched dr phil. Lol. There was about a half hr wait before the aenthetist came to see me (still no nerves at this point, just hungry!) she did her thing with the canula, then Dr kwok came indouble checkec I was happy size wise, drew on me... Haha, not something I'm used to! Got me to lift my arms, asked if I'd lost weight since our last appointment and suggested that dual plane would give me a better result and would give the girls a bit of extra lift..... Signed my life away, took out the CC warrantee. Then a few minutes more wait and the anethetist came back took me to the surgery room, a few jokes were made by the nurses, that they were my surgeons for the day.. Lol, asked if it was too late to change my mind if they wrre doing it! Then they did all the prelim checks "do you know what you are having done etc" Dr kwok asked if i wanted any type of music in particular, i said no and he ended up putting on george michaels carlesss whisper which cracked everyone up. On went the gas mask and i was out like a light. Woke up in recovery, they got me dressed , transfered me to a chair, gave me some cookies a lollipop and water, the hubby came in with the meds and they ran through the post op instructions. I didn't feel any nausea and it reaaly just did feel like someone was pushing down on my chest, no pain as such at that point. Home in bed now and will be taking my first dose of meds in a few minutes, but still only mild pain and even the pushing feeling is a lot less already. Snuck a peek from the top and OMG I have boobs lol, they look pretty round already from what i can see . Hubby is omg they are big! Lol
  19. Hey guys, I'm new here but it seemed like a good place to do my research! I've put down $2,000.00 for my surgery with Dr Tang, and I'm trying to gather as much info as I can! Can anybody walk me through the whole twilight sedation thing, I'm currently having (irrational!) paranoia about this! Also I'd love to hear from anyone who has gotten implants after children due to that dreaded breast feeding boob deflation
  20. Hi everyone! I'm really new to this forum and just want a bit of advice from those who may have already had a breast augmentation (especially those who went through TCI in Sydney!). I was very excited to hear about The Cosmetic Institute recently after wanting implants for a few years. I sent off my photos for review by their surgical team over the weekend, and I heard back today that I am a candidate for surgery (yay!), but Dr Tang mentioned that my breasts are set quite wide apart and will continue to do so after augmentation. I'm hoping someone else was told something similar and might have post-surgery photos so I can see what their outcome was, because I'm finding it difficult to imagine what bigger breasts would look like set kind of far apart! I've attached a front facing photo in case people have similar before shots to mine (excuse the dodgy nipple covers! ) At the moment I'm an A-B cup and am wanting to go to a D-DD to balance out my figure as I have very wide hips. I'm around 175cm and about 70kg but pretty much all that weight is on my bottom half and I plan on losing some before having surgery in July 2015. Any thoughts/comments/advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
  21. Hi ladies, For those who travels interstate for their breast augmentation, i know we are told that you have follow ups with your local GP. Just wondering... is this recommended, necessary or if required? Did you do it? Booked in for March, can not wait!!!
  22. Hello ladies! I've just signed up as I have decided to have a boob job. I'm still in the early stages of researching so I am hoping being on here will help! Firstly, I am after some feedback on 'the Cosmetic Institute' in Sydney? Thanks in advance!!
  23. I am considering travelling from Perth to Sydney for my BA at TCI. I have a million questions and I'd love to hear from TCI girls about your experiences. Should I pay extra for Dr Dona being a plastic surgeon, or are the cosmetic surgeons adequate considering its a simple procedure? If so, which surgeon did you choose and why? I'm wanting anatomical implants but havent seen one before/after from TCI using tear drops, has anyone had teardrops? Also, every surgeon seems to have different methods for after surgery...what happens at TCI do you wake up bandaged/when are you told to massage etc. I'm hoping for surgery on Friday and to fly home on Monday, any advice?
  24. Hi guys, I live in Brisbane and am considering booking a consultation with Dr Tang at The Cosmetic Institute in Sydney. From the moment I started researching BAs, Dr Tang (and TCI's) reputation and results have stood out to me. It doesn't hurt that their price is totally reasonable either. My problem is that after sending them pictures of my breasts, they have told me that I'm suitable for the procedure yet haven't managed to answer a single question I've asked them? Am I reading too much into this and I should just book the consultation and ask my questions there? I would have expected since I will be forking out hundreds of dollars in flights, accommodation and consultation fees just to meet them, that they'd be able to reassure me I'm choosing the right company by answering some questions. Has anyone else had a similar experience? And should I just book the flights and consultation and see how it goes? Thanks in advance!! :-) Tan
  25. Hey Everyone, So so so sorry its a late story but i though after all the support the forum gave me i better get onto it and write a story that will hopefully be helpful to someone else I flew to Sydney from New Zealand on the 7th May 2014 and had my consut the day i arrived at tci in Paramatta with Dr Tang whom is absolutely lovely. I decided on 525cc XHP round textured silicone placed under the muscle. i was also given the choice of 470 XHP but decided that i would rather go the bigger one as then i couldn't be disappointed on the final size I then met the lovely mink who also put my nerves at ease and explained to me how the post op care would be and what i would feel ect Admission time was 2pm - Thursday 8th May and i was to begin fasting from 7:30am I woke up at 6.30am on op day and had a pot of yogurt and a small glass of juice so i wasnt too hungry waiting till 2pm I had my friend who met me in sydney and also my partner to look after I arrived at TCI about 10 mins before i was due for admission and sat in the reception area for less than 5 mins while i filled out the last of my forms and signed my life away then i was taken through to the pre op room which was lovely and warm and put on a gown and slippers ( i was allowed to keep my undies on) and i also left my tongue and ear piercings in. The nurse came to visit me and asked a few questions then the anesthetist came to talk to me about the twilight anesthetic which i was terrified about waking up; he was lovely and reassured me i would be waking up. Then i met Dr Tang again and made double sure on sizes and then he drew on me and took some photos then i walked through to theater. Im shocking with needles and the team were great at distracting me while i was lying on the table having the canular put in (i didnt even feel it go in!!) talking away and then i felt cold fluid going through my arm and lights out. (i also had massagers on my legs to help the circulation while under the anesthetic) Woke up in recovery shivering uncontrollably it was horrible. but i had a heated blanket with me that i got to take back to the motel and after being fed a couple of bikkies i felt a bit better. i was in alot of pain and was complaining to the nurse who was trying to convince me i wasnt until another nurse came over and then i was changed into a symastia bra to help push down on my sternum. My partner and friend arrived and i was taken back to the motel where i slept for a while and then woke up starving so my friend went to get me some dinner 1 week check: I had my one week check up at TCI as i stayed in Sydney for 2 weeks as my mum was paranoid about blood clots as she had DVT from the pill. They were impressed with the incisions and changed the steri strips and i was on my way 6 Week checkup: My GP at home had a look i told him i was worried about the symastia (uniboob) and he had a look and touch and said i was fine and to stop worrying he also had a look at my scars and said wow how did they fit anything in the tiny incision he was very impressed. I am now 8 and a bit weeks PO and im still in the symastia bra, i cant wait to take it off ( hopefully at 9 weeks when i send pics through to tci) but it has become my safety blanket. I have had a great experiance so far with tci and cant wait for the final results to show, the nurse nicole has been excellent and kept in contact with me checking on my progress and updating my pics to let me know when i can take off the symastia bra safely. Any questions feel free to mail me or post below and im happy to answer, photos are all on my phone so i cant upload at the moment
