So yesterday morning I had my consult and surgery with Dr Boonchai. It was such a pleasant experience and he is so lovely! Of course a bit clinical in his approach but does have a little bit of a giggle here and then and he definitely makes sure you know all that you need to. i decided upon 350s textured, round, unders and endoscopic transaxillary (through the armpit). I didn't want my boobs to have scars on them and Dr B said he can achieve better placement! Although it is longer recover especially combined with under the muscle, he said it's the scar that will be more important. Trying on the sizers were fun! I have a very small diameter so even 325 was pushing it but he gave me 350cc to try on and they were so much better than I chose them even though he said there would be a little bit of a risk. My boobs are also uneven so that means 325 in my bigger boob and 350 in my smaller boob. The nurses were so lovely and sweet. However in the operating room I was waiting on the table for a while, doctor wasn't in yet then one of the ladies said to take a deep breathe which I didn't understand what for until I realise it was the anaesthetic! I little warning would have been appreciated but I'm not really bothered Got back to my room and just in and out of sleep for the whole day. I tried to drink and eat but would vomit each and every time. My chest also felt like someone was sitting on it, breathing is a little bit difficult and you don't realise how much you use your chest muscles! Crazy. My boyfriend had to take me to the bathroom and feed me etc. Today is my 2nd day post op and I feel better but still really really sore. I had my drains removed and I was expecting it to be really painful as many of you girls said but not at all! I got to go home and just chilling in my room with room service and my boyfriend. He's been super good, I've also cried a few times but I'm not sure why. Also a few tips, if you have acrylics it might be better to get them removed in Australia. I went to Jungcylon and at a proper 'salon' it was going to cost 40/50 aud. in Australia, it costs about $20 so I found somewhere else that removed them for much cheaper but I was literally there for 2+ hours with her wrapping my nails in nail polish remover and tin foil and trying to scrape it off! Get a really good back massage because of all the sleeping up right you're going to be doing! And i recommend buying a posture support pillow from Target, costs lik $10 and it's the best thing ever! P.S I know it's only 2 days post op but... My boobs are really high and pointy and I know they're swollen but I'm wondering with D+F they will get bigger? Or I dunno! And had dr B ever measured you as a cup size when you tried on your sizers and you ended up being much smaller? Thank you ladies! I'll keep you up to date on my progress x
Hi ladies, I'm 9 days post-op, 250cc dual-plane transax. Yesterday my surgeon took my stitches out and told me to begin massaging the scars and the hard tissue behind to 'dissolve' it. It feels soooo strange to be poking my fingers around in my delicate scars. Can any of you ladies who have had transax advise? How long did it take before your scars flattened out? Any massage tips? How long before you had full movement in your arms again? The idea of going to yoga and doing a downward dog literally terrifies me... Thanks in advance
Hi, Just wondering what your thoughts are on these 2 different types of incisions? Initially I really wanted the endoscopic armpit incision as it has less visible scarring but from what I have been reading maybe the breast fold incision is better due to; Symmetry Silicon gel needs longer incision length I'd imagine the armpit one might hurt more? Scar is easier to manage as it's not going to get all sweaty and hair growing through it... ew? Seems like it could get infected easier? Breast fold is also cheaper Would love to hear your thoughts about this or let me know how your scars have healed. I'm thinking about getting 350cc, under the muscle, textured silicon gel. ALSO if you're heading to Phuket in July I will be having my surgery on the 6th and would love to hear from you
