So it has been almost four years since my first breast augmentation with Dr David Chin from Advanced Plastic Surgery in Brisbane. I was initially (mostly) satisfied with the results, but had my suspicions about uneven pockets - and the remaining asymmetry. As they’ve settled over the years, I’ve noticed them looking more and more uneven, and very wide set. 

I’ve also had a lot of problems with breast animation while training, and discomfort with a ‘pulling/tugging’ sensation, particularly in my left breast. I  finally decided to take the plunge and look into revision. Unfortunately, having moved to the UAE, I was unable to consult with Dr Chin again - but I doubt he would have been easy to convince to perform a revision, as when I brought up my concerns initially after surgery, he dismissed them quickly, and showed me images of my ‘befores’ - saying that it was an improvement. I decided to speak to a surgeon here instead. 

The surgeon here advised me to get an MRI, as she suspected a capsular contracture, but after viewing the images it showed the pockets cut very uneven (one an inch and a half higher than the other), and too small for the implants - causing rippling, and she says likely the discomfort and animation, too. 

I decided to also look into options for surgery in Thailand, as I’ve read a lot of ladies have had better luck with their revisions there, and am in the process of booking with Dr Sanguan at PPSI around mid-August (in just a few weeks). It works out around the same price for me and my family to travel to Thailand and have a break away together, as well as get the surgery done, so it seemed like a feasible option. Plus, I’ve read excellent reviews about Dr Sanguan, and see that he is the head of the Plastic Surgery Hospital there. 

I feel positive about the results, and my husband was able to get some leave, so him and daughter will join me around 2-3 days after the surgery, and we can enjoy a little time together then, but I am just a little nervous about traveling there alone for the surgery and being away from my family for those few days until they arrive. 

If anyone is traveling to Phuket at the same time, or if anyone has any positive experiences to share about their surgery in Thailand, I’d love to hear from you . 

Anyway, I’ll update progress in this thread, and it might help someone else in the future, too ?

I've seen another very bad surgery from Dr Chin. I wish you good luck with your revision!

@rockmelonmamma i am very sorry to hear about your first surgery,  it can be very distressing knowing you have spent all that money and put your trust in your surgeon only to find that they did not do the surgery properly the first time. I hope things have gone well with your revision in Bangkok and i bet your new boobs look awesome.  Please let us know how you went.
