Hello, just wondering if anyone has had great experience with any doctors in Brisbane in regards to lipo? I have been in contact with Ashbury Cosmetics, as I have seen their before and after gallery and was impressed. Does anyone recommend them, or any other clinics. Thank you for your time. Nasrin.
Heyya there, I'm 24 and wanting recommendations on a surgeon based in either Sydney or Canberra who is good with sculpting thighs, especially inner thighs and knees. I had started gaining weight a little before my 23rd birthday due to antidepressant medication and a LOT of excess chocolate (I made it as a hobby but gave it up because I'd much rather have a nice body), but at my biggest I was only a little bit chubby for a young adult (although I did end up with very large breasts, went from a C-cup to over an F-cup) , but have been and still am losing naturally since I stopped the medication and have cut down on sugary things. I plan to have liposuction done after my weight stabilises (I've actually wanted my thighs done since I was a teenager) ; and am using the time until then to do the necessary research. When I am eating healthy and exercising my weight tends to sit around the lower end of the "healthy" range for my height, and I am quite small-boned. A lot of the fat I do have at my natural size, however, is on my inner thighs (and the backs of them as well to a certain extent) and is very embarrassing, and I feel they are out of proportion with how thin my arms, waist, neck and lower legs tend to be. I also have fatty deposits just above my knees which gives them a rather rounded, "pudgy" appearance. The inside of my knees are probably the worst area, especially as the fat seems to "jut out" above my lower legs (which have always been thin although I have recently gained some muscle in my calves from playing drums) I'm looking for a surgeon who can first and foremost respect my own sense of aesthetics, I don't need my thighs to be "balanced" with my breasts as I would prefer to be a more "tomboyish" B-cup anyway; I don't care for having an "hourglass" figure at all, especially an exaggerated one. Thighs are first priority and it's more important that they are "balanced" with my slender arms and waist. It is a given that the surgeon is reputable with a high success rate. Scars are not an issue ( I already have very shallow scars on my thighs and am hoping THEY are still willing to work on me despite this) If they can safely remove a substantial amount from the problem areas that would be the best. Ideally I'd like have enough removed, that if I were to buy a pair of shorts or pants that fit properly around the hips and bum, they wouldn't be quite as "filled out" in the legs anymore. I'm hoping that is realistic and medically safe. Does anyone have any recommendations? Has anyone had a successful outcome on such a procedure before? And importantly, who should I steer clear of? Thanks in advance
Hi lovely ladies, Well, after a few years after my lipo with Dr Konrat I feel I really should give feedback.. The procedure was about 3 years ago - on my inner and outer thighs, plus buttocks. First up, the consult was fine, I had done stacks of research so to be honest there wasn't really any surprises.. The overall cost came out at about $5500. The staff were all pleasant, as was the Doc. The surgery was done at their clinic in Annerley, arrived early that morning, had my sanitizing wipe down, etc. This is where things start to go bad..painkillers were in tablet form. I remember the majority of it. And I most certainly remember the pain. It was excruciating. (FYI - A few medical practitioners have commented (separately, unrelated) on my high pain threshold.. I was given additional painlkillers half way through as I was shaking so badly with the shock. I could tell the nurse assisting was not comfortable with the situation. My hand was held and she was a good as she could be, but.. Dr Konrat mentioned at the end that they should have done the procedure under general. No sh!t. Bit late though, at my expense. After that, again everyone was pleasant and I was oh so pleased to go home! I managed to shower myself the following day, but it took about 45 min to slowly maneuver around as I could barely shuffle, nealy passing out a few times, had to take a step ladder in so I didn't topple over. The bruising was spectacular, very pretty colours starting out deep purple over the majority of my thighs and under my but crease. Eventually they went through the rainbow and faded properly after about 3-4 weeks. I wore the compression garment non stop for over a month, and part time for longer. The results distracted me from the severe discomfort, but I was sorely disappointed seeing that not more was removed - I went down maybe 1 size at the most (10 to an 8.5) I walked everyday - for the first week I could barely go down the 3 flights of stairs in my building, and shuffled so badly that people looked on in concern. I had to sleep on my back with a pillow under my legs - I'm a side -sleeper usually but there was no chance at that. 10 days later I had to go back to work, and I was still very obviously walking in pain, which is awkward to say the least when you don't want an issue to be made, or anyone to really know. It's private ya know..anyways So, not a great experience. And once all the swelling had gone, etc I found that the inner thighs were 'uneven' differing from each other in shape..ditto outer thigh. I have finally decided to have the same procedure done - again - properly this time I hope! Hope this helps someone..and goodluck.
