Unsure about sizing :(


Recommended Posts

Okay here goes, I had implants in the past, but had them removed 5 years ago due to capsular whatever it is called but also the fact that the surgery was a disaster from day 1 with me having two completely different breasts that were embarassing to say the least. I had those implants for 10 years, 220 and 250 cc low profile ones,  2.9cm projection and they gotten me from a flat A to a large B sorta small C.

Anyway out they went 5 years ago, through the public system here, and me ending up again with a disaster, as they took too much from my right breast (capsule removed and removed some tissue). So although they did recover very well and fluffed up again and arent saggy empty bags, they are two different sizes and also uneven because of the mess up. They fluctuate in size all the time depending on my  hormonal status and meh I'm really over it. Sometimes a flat chested A up to a medium B Cup it really depends. I have attached a photo of today, that shows the f@%% up clearly, and the size is more on the bigger side atm they sometimes shrink a lot down

I did see Dr. Chinsee last Friday, and he is really nice and I am going to go with him for surgery. I want even breasts and I want to feel sexy and feminine. I said to him I do not want bolt on look, as in high profile narrow diameter planted on the chest, I do like my  natural side boob I have despite being small chested but more filled out and more breast like.

I am 56 kg and 5.2" high, more of a petite bone structure with a bit of a apple butt to go with it. So not totally curveless hahaha. We did end up with 300 something moderate for the left and 340 something higher profile for the right to balance out the size but also the indent I have in my chest on that side. But now I am unsure if i should perhaps go a bit bigger ?

I am sorry to hear of the journey you have been through with your breasts. RE size, I guess it is down to personal choice. You have been a small C cup in the past with your prior implants. So you know what that size feels like + looks like on your frame. If you were happy being a C cup, then go with the sizing Dr. Chinsee has suggested. Or if bigger boobs are what you want, I would go bigger. Keep us posted with how you go. :)

Hey hun, sorry to hear you've had such a tough time. I agree with @pink butterfly re size, it's your personal choice, but those sizes should definitely give you a C cup. Is Dr Chinsee a qualified plastic surgeon? As opposed to a cosmetic surgeon, who does not have the same skill-set or qualifications. As in your right breast will need a bit of work and you need someone with top notch skills.

You may find even after this BA that your breasts will not be identical. As we all say on here, our breasts are not twins they are sisters, so may still end up looking a little different. I really feel you need to talk about this with your surgeon and be prepared psychologically. From how I read what you are saying you want them to be the same, but in reality they may never be exactly the same. However, an experienced and qualified plastic surgeon can get you the best outcome given your circumstances. xo

I really advise watching the four corners program. It speaks a lot about people choosing budget surgery with cosmetic surgeons and then complaining that they are botched. (Wonder why)

Whilst it’s your choice to put your body and life into someone’s untrained hands.... don’t you think after experiencing the issues you have that you would make a wise decision and do it the right way and seek someone who has experience?

Once upon a time I was naive too, cheap surgery sounds good right? WRONG. 

Now I actually value my life..... and breasts. You should too.

A plastic surgeon can help you with sizing to ensure your desired outcome.

Hi Mannie,

I am so sorry to hear about your experience. 

I was a flat A and I when to a full C cup with 225cc low profile conical implants, they deliver as much volume as around 250cc anatomical. I am also a small frame, being 5"2, and you have more to work with at the moment than I had. I just hope Dr Chinsee is able to correct the asymmetry. 

As for a plastic vs cosmetic surgeon, one is not necessarily 'better' than the other, it really depends what they chose as their specialty area and how many breast augmentations they have performed. I personally went with a cosmetic surgeon and he gave me great results.

All the best xx

Just because you had an okay result with a cosmetic surgeon does not mean you should be recommending them over a PS and stating one isn’t better than the other. Because that is a load of BS. 

If you are happy to put your body into untrained hands - that’s fine. But don’t mislead people and pretend there’s no difference. Jesus. 

Sure, people may get a nice result with a GP (cosmetic surgeon). But they aren’t trained as a plastic surgeon is. Otherwise they would have the same title (duh)

So please actually do your research before telling us all your wrong info. Thanks :)

There is no need to be rude :)

Dr Harwood actually gave me an excellent result, he certainly wasn't untrained. I know a few ladies here also went with him including @pink butterfly and @BreastsToBe

I'm not saying there is no difference between the two. I think it is you that needs to do your research before stating that cosmetic surgeons are to be completely dismissed: https://www.americanboardcosmeticsurgery.org/patient-resources/cosmetic-surgery-vs-plastic-surgery/

A plastic surgeon is technically also known as a reconstructive surgeon. They can treat burn victims and those with congenital defects such as cleft palate. But a plastic surgeon can also go through their entire training without performing a breast augmentation, because this is a cosmetic surgery and not a reconstructive one. 

I am aware that anyone with a medical degree can call themselves a cosmetic surgeon, and that is why they have gained a bad reputation, because there is little to no regulation of the cosmetic industry in Australia. But there are genuine cosmetic surgeons out there with extensive training and experience. I would rather go to a cosmetic surgeon that has performed 1000 successful BAs than a plastic surgeon that has done 10 in their entire career.

I’m not having a cosmetic surgeon vs plastic surgeon debate with you. You’ve clearly convinced yourself cosmetic surgeons are something they aren’t. 

It’s as clear as day what the two are. Unfortunately there’s some people who just can’t differentiate between both. 

Good luck with your cosmetic surgeons. I hope we don’t see you on the news complaining they botched you.

I really hope no one takes your CS recommendation seriously. 

That's fine. I understand why you are not inclined to trust the title of 'cosmetic surgeon', and I am well aware of the unscrupulous people out there calling themselves that and botching their patients. Because my procedure did not involve a reconstructive element, it was purely cosmetic, I didn't feel I needed a plastic surgeon in that particular case, not that I was selecting against them. 

There definitely needs to be tightening of the regulations surrounding cosmetic surgery and who can perform it, if that means the title of 'cosmetic surgeon' is banned then so be it. I would be much more wary of the title now then a few years ago when I had my procedure. I am not trying to encourage people to go to a cosmetic surgeon as such, but simply to do thorough research on who they do entrust their body and health too. I take it as seriously as you do.

There are plenty of talented cosmetic surgeons around. For each good cosmetic surgeon there are probably 10 terrible ones. The main issue here is a cosmetic surgeon should not be recommended for someone undergoing not only a revision, but a revision with previous complications. 

I whole-heartedly agree :) I was just saying who I went with in my case, which was a straight-forward BA. I see why that recommendation may not have been helpful.
