Surgery booked for February 21st


Recommended Posts

My revision is booked for February 21st, my implants bottomed out quite badly about 12 months ago and finally having them fixed.

my surgeon is going to move my implants completely sub muscular and do deep rib stitching to position them higher and closer together. He is keeping the same implants which are 415cc XHP smooth Natrelle.

the date is coming up very soon so starting to feel pretty nervous!

praying they hold up!

So I had my surgery yesterday!

it was a very stressful morning as my partner accidentally took me to the wrong hospital! So I was about 45 minutes late, then when I got to the front desk I had to pay the fee on arrival which was quoted to be $2400 for a day case for bi lateral remove and replace (I don’t have PHI) but the hospital had $2900 on my paper work! Originally I was doing an overnight stay but changed at last consult and my quote should have been adjusted. Not to mention I received the wrong quotes from the surgery clinic 3 times and had to pester them every time. 

Anyway the admin women at the hospital was absolutely horrible and so rude! I was nearly in tears especially as I was already stressed for arriving late, she did end up charging me the $2400, I apologised for the inconvenience to her but that was my quote! She just stopped speaking to me and rolled her eyes at the nurse who was taking to get my undressed. 

Honestly if I didn’t really like my surgeon I would have gone to another surgery clinic in Brisbane just because of the difficulties I’ve had with the reception staff, not replying to emails and just being generally unhelpful. 

Anyway after that incident the rest of the staff at the hospital were absolutely lovely and I had a great experience. I saw my surgeon before I went under, he drew on my and explained everything he was going to do so I felt really confident going in. 

He ended up doing deep rib sutures and tightening up my pocket as the implants were already under the muscle. I was in a fair bit of pain when I woke up but feeling a lot better today. I was super emotional yesterday when I got home, partly due to the GA and women being rude and just feeling stressed I will get more complications. 

I see my surgeon next week for a post op appointment. I am trying to stay really stil and wearing my post op bra 24/7. Praying this holds up!

Hi, sorry to hear the start of your new boobie journey didn't start off well, there's no need to be rude we are all human and mistakes are made, think she could have handled it better especially since 99% of patients are nervous about the surgery anyways.  Glad it got better by the time you saw your surgeon,  also would have been nice to have tried to clean the betadine and pen marks of you while you were under instead of you trying to rub it off your tender boobies yourself  ( my surgeon cleaned me up in the OR so when i woke up there was no trace of pen marks only a little bit of betadine on spits where they had missed) 

Your new boobs look good what size did you go from and have now and did you change profile.  ??

Hi! I know my partner and I were really confused about the pen marks and betadine, that didn’t happen the last time. 

Im worried they may have rushed me a bit, 

I kept the same implant from the last surgery so they are 415cc smooth round XHP

So I am one week post op today, I’ve been pretty down the past few days. I’ve seen big improvements but I am feeling like they are too big on my frame and will just bottom out again!

my surgeon advised me against going for a smaller implant because I would have excess skin due to the stretching from the bottoming out.
