Hi Sunny106, 

I just had a consult with him yesterday. I found him wonderful and answered all of my questions. I took hubby with me and he really liked him as well. Thinking of booking with him in Feb.. eeeek. It’s really close so I’m freaking out a little bit. I think having a consult with a couple of surgeons is really helpful too.

good luck :)

@MummaJules how exciting abd i know the nerver must have kicked in now but dont worry your in good hands I've heard good things about Mark Lee.  Your day of op you wont be in any pain as you would have had IV drugs but the next day you will probably feel pretty uncomfortable abd your boobs will feel very swollen and tight so if you are allowed to use ice packs then definitely do so as i found they were a big help in the first few days po. Good luck for Thursday

Hi MummaJules I will be thinking and praying tomorrow about your surgery.  My sister in boobs Wanting boobs gave you some great advise.  It will be worth it when you look in the mirror and see those gorgeous new boobs.  I had my revision on January 17, and through the Lovely Ladies on this site their encouraging words and advise made my Pre Op and Po go so well.  God Bless

Hugs & Kisses

That’s really exciting Sunny106, congrats 

Yes, I’m booked in for Thurs, Feb 15th. I had my final consult last week just to check size and go over a couple more questions I had. I was so excited up until about 2 days ago, now I’m just nervous. I can’t believe it’s actually happening. 

Good luck for your surgery tomorrow hun... it'll all be over before you know it and you'll have your lovely new boobs. Take it easy over the first few days/week and be gentle with yourself - we'll all be thinking of you xo

Ahhhh, you ladies are a god send. Thank you so much for your support and advice!! It’s so encouraging to hear from others that have gone through the same thing, especially when I’m over here freaking out about the anaesthetic, that’s my only concern right now. Tbh, I’m not sure if it’s excitement or nerves. I’ve been thinking and wanting new boobs for years and can’t believe the day is finally here :D

I have just arrived at the hospital, will probably be a few hours until I’m in surgery though. I’m sure I’ll be out of it for a few days but will try and keep you posted on how I’m going. 

Thanks for the love ladies xxx

So It’s now Day 1 post op (although not even 24hrs yet) - sorry for the long post.

So, got to the hospital for 6:30am admission. Went through all the appear work and then went to my room to change in the sexy hospital gown, shower cap thing and the compression socks. Met the anaesthetist who was lovely, asked if I had any concerns or questions( which I didn’t cuz we went through it on the phone a few days prior). Then after about 10 mins I got wheeled into the, I guess, pre-op waiting room and was in there for about 45 mins. Had a few nurses come check on me, my details, allergies etc. then Dr Lee came in and marked me up. He was so lovely and went through some post op stuff, asked if I had any question. He was really reassuring and just felt really comfortable with him. Between then and getting into surgery was about 5 mins. The last time I remember looking at the clock it was 8:15am. After they wheeled me into the operating room, I swapped onto the operating table, got hooked up to the IV and was under in I reckon, 2-3 mins of entering the room. It was really quick. 

I then woke up at 9:10am with the nurse next to me. I could talk and see but was still a bit out of it, I tried looking at my boobs and I could see them but then not remember what they looked like, so would look again - I did this a fair bit while trying to wake up, it was so weird. The nurses were great and kept telling me they looked amazing etc etc. and because I was so alert they sent me staight back to my room and brought me some food and water. It was great seeing hubby in the room when I got there, I kept asking if they looked ok, we they too small, were they ok, did they look weird etc. etc. lol.  I couldn’t eat but just nibbled on a few things, water was my main concern cuz I had a really dry mouth. Felt great with no pain, just a little bit of pressure or a really dull ach. If anyone has had kids it’s like the engorged feeling. Dozed off and on for a couple of hours in my room. I asked if the Dr would come in and see me and the nurse said generally he won’t, unless there is something particular he is wanting to discuss. If all went well in surgery he usually won’t come in.

At about 11am the nurse asked me to got to the toilet. I didn’ Feel like I needed to go cuz I had only had a small glass of water or two, but I had had I think a litre of IV fluid. Getting up was different, I couldn’t open the toilet door and the nurse had to help me. I was eventually able to do a wee, but it was hard to go at first, for some reason, it took real concentration to start peeing (sorry if tmi). I think that is due to the anaesthetic or drugs or something. By the time I got back to the bed (maybe 4m away) I was nauseous and had a hot flush. I had to concentrate on not vomiting, it was horrible. Prior to this I was feeling great. Over the next hour these waves of nausea would come and go. Eating more helped settle my tummy which was good. We had to wait for all of my medications to be ready but eventually got dressed and packed up the room. We finally left the hospital at about 12:30pm.

Felt pretty good most of the day- I’ve been eating all day to stop the nausea and it’s working, haven’t eating this much for ages.  My boobs look a little weird at the moment, really high and hard, definitely got frankenboob and they look square. Can’t wait for them to drop and fluff. Also started my meds that afternoon, haven’t needed the hard painkiller yet, just on panadol, anti inflammatories and antibiotics. I rarely take any meds so the panadol is working for now. Managed a bit of a walk around at about 6pm which was good as my legs were feeling funny (still had the leg compression socks on due to not moving much today - advised by the nurse to keep these on). Before sleep last night I took 2 panadol (previously just been having 1 every 4 hours) and slept through from about 10:30pm to 5am being propped up on pillows. I tried lying down completely flat for about an hour, fell asleep but then couldn’t get up. Hubby had to lift me as I was stuck lol. Definitely going to stay propped up on pillows for a few days. 

This morning I was slightly stiff, feeling better than expected though. Had my meds first thing too. Going to try for a shower and get in some fresh clothes. Definitely happy with my results so far, no signs of bruising or incisions bleeding. I’m more sore around my armpits and along the side boob area, it feels more muscle movement that causes discomfort though. Every now and again I do get a gurgling sound, it’s usually when I’m moving around getting up etc. it’s so weird, but not painful.

So far, really happy with my results and coundn’t be happier with Dr Mark Lee.

Stats: I got 450cc HP smooth silicon, 164cm, 63kg, started off as a deflated 12b,

Thank you for sharing your story with us, im glad surgery went well and yes i can relate to the engorged feeling, i was told by my ps to use ice packs and i found they helped heaps. It will take about 3 wks befor the swelling and franken-boob to start to settle and by about day 6 i was sleeping flat on my back,  morning boob is a b! $ch and will last for a good couple of months. Rest up and keep us posted on your recovery ? congrats on the new boobs.

Hi @Sunny106 my first shower was a bit tedious and you will have to gently wash the girls, i tried not to get soap on my dressings as didn't want to risk getting soap in my incisions,  you will have to pat dry the girls to as rubbing is out for a couple of weeks oh and trying to shave you armpits is a new experience ? but you'll get used to it. Best of luck with your recovery and keep me updated o  how you go, PS if you friend request me you will be able to see my pics.

Hi Sunny106, how are you feeling? Hopefully your recovery is going well. Are you happy?

I’m 4 weeks post op now and loving my new girls. I’m sleeping normal although haven’t had the courage to sleep on my side or stomach yet. I’m healing well and very happy with how my scars are looking. They have softened up heaps already. I can’t wait until they’ve fully dropped and fluffed though.
