Found this site today & was happy to read so many positive stories :)
I have 36 F boobs, which have alway's hurt my back etc, but 6 years ago i was in a fire which left me with multiple injuries & 6 fractured vertibrae in my Thorasic area of my spine, this injury has been the one that's left me with daily chronic pain. I tried 3 times through my Doctor & the Hospital, yet even though i deal with chronic pain they say my breasts aren't big enough for surgery?!
Luckily my Dad, who Lives in Kuala Lumpur, can help me to get the procedure! I am soooo excited, but scared too...the thought of more pain is not appealing, but it's a positive pain this time :)
My op is on the 15th Dec at Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital in Bangkok. Dr Thiti is doing the procedure.
I've been to Thailand before & a good friend is coming with me, we've got about a month after the op, there's a few things that i hope some of you can help me out with please :)
I'm due to stay in the hosp for 2 nights then my liason at the hosp Kate, who's been really helpful said i should be able to leave Bangkok after 10 days. I really hope this is the case, as my Dad is letting me & my friend stay in his beach house in Koh Chang! The thing is, i love to sunbathe & party etc, but i've been informed not to smoke, drink or do much for at least 3 weeks after surgery. Can anyone who has or is in a similar situation please let me know, would i be able to sunbathe? to an extent of course! What can i do to look after the scars as best as possible? I've heard about silicone tape that helps? It will be New Year & i'm 33 so i like to party lol, to what extent can i party, especially on a party island like Koh Chang? How much movement do you get with your arms? Will my mate have to wash, brush my hair etc?
Also i am not getting an uplift, i'd like one, but it's too expensive. My boobs are big & sag but i'm really worried after all the planning etc, they won't look nice & pert lol...I'm going from 36 F to a C cup i think....
Basically anyone that can relate to my situation, please help!!
Cheers guys. Happy healing!
Hi guy's, Found this site today & was happy...
Hi guy's, im new to this site today & still...
Any tips on the way around this site would be appreciated lol, e.g. i can't find my post in the breast reduction forum?
Will add pics also, if anyone has similar size, shape, can you please let me know if your breasts were perky & lifted without the need of an uplift!
I'm due to get my reduction on the 15th Dec in...
I'm nervous about so much, e.g do you have to stop taking the pill? My contact at the hosp said i could carry on taking antidepressants, but i havn't mentioned that i take precribed pain killers..(due to a bad accident) I'm scared i can't take them too?!
Is it worth getting the silicone strips? Can i have one or two drinks in the weeks up to the op? As i'll be in Thailand with family etc!Sorry to unload like this but if anyone can help with my questions that would be amazing!
How long until you get your stitches out? x
Hi ladies! Hope everone is either healing well, or...
II get my BR on the 15th Dec, i'm worried about how long it will be before i can fly...short flight, as i'm getting the op in Bangkok & travelling to Koh Chang, about an hours flight, but a bit of travel either side. Luckily one of my best friends will be with me & he will help with all the bags etc. I just hope i'll be fit enough for the journey! I'm 33 36F & pretty healthy....the thought of relief from chronic back pain makes the rest seem worthwile! I hope to travel 10 days after surgery....would be great to get some advice from ladies that have undergone the op.
Hello ladies! I hope you are all healing well :)...
Next week i leave Scotland to spend a few weeks withmy Dad in KL then off to Bangkok for the BR. Gulp!
So been stopped smoking for 9 days! Yay! Finding it not too bad, but stopped drinking & being around smokey atmospheres, so think that helps!
I will be getting all of my 'supplies' this week, as i want to make sure i'm prepared before i head off. So far i will be getting, Bio Oil for scarring, Arnica tablets, Senokot, & lots of books, DVD's etc....please give me any tips on what else i could take that will help for post op recovery. I will be spending Christmas in Bangkok & it will be 10 days post op by then, already i'm feeling a bit sad that i won't be with family, but i know i have to make the most of it. Any feedback on that would be much appreciated ladies :)
Healing hugs x
Hello ladies :) Hope everyone is healing well or...
Hope everyone is healing well or for ladies waiting for their BR like me, hope your all ok & not too nervous!
Fly to Kuala Lumpur next week, so have got as much things here in Scotland before i leave, thank you to all who have given me great advice on what to get!
I got Arnica, Hibiscrub, Senokot & Bio Oil..am i missing anything lol
For you ladies that are looking for a post op bra, i have found the Z bra, it's a sports bra that is geared toward women in our situation for use after BR. I found it at - underthetop.com hope that helps.
2 weeks stopped smoking this weekend, yay!
Wee question, i take the pill, but i'm unsure about stopping as i don't want to have even more sensitive breasts at period time! Any advice on if it's ok to carry on with it? x x
So ladies, tomorrow is surgery day!! I arrived in...
I have everything arranged that i can think of, hosp bag packed...transfer from hotel to hosp & de-fuzzed & waxed!
The only thing i wish for is my family & friends to be here, but my Dad & friend from back home are with me, so i will be fine.
Hope all the ladies that are in the same boat as me are coping ok & the ladies that are post op are healing well.
Please feel free to give any advice on things that helped you on surgery day.
Will update soon! x x
Hello my friends! Hope your'e all healing well...
Finally managed to upload pics, 1 day after op & 4 days after op
Any feedback would be welcomed :) x
Hello ladies! Hope everyone is recovering well...
I'ts day 9 po, & feeling better since getting stitches out, although my girls are still very tender & quite sore esp under the breast where the incision was. Is this common?
Any advice on what could ease the tenderness would be great. I have added a couple new pics,
My PS & i discussed before surgery that i would like them to be as perky as poss, & he used a techique similar to the vertical, which leaves about an inch scar under the breats, this type of op he chose to perform as he said it would keep the girls fuller & perkier than the anchor. I also asked him to make sure my nipples were high up, as i want to be able to go bra less as much as possible when i'm fully healed, due to my back injury.
They will drop & become closer together in 3-4 weeks.
Any feedback on the girls would be much appreciated.
Merry Christmas & i'm sure will all enjoy our new 'prezzies' lol
Healing hugs xx
Hi Ladies, hope you are all enjoying your new xmas...
I have now left Bangkok & am traveling to Koh Chang Island...an hours flight away, to rest for a couple of weeks before heading home.
I am 2 weeks po tomorrow & wanted to post new pics, as my poor friend i'm with has been hearing all about how i think i have wound separation, infection, you name it i think i have it!!
I wanted to ask my friends on here, as i know you have all been through the same situation.
My nipples have the 'ruffled' effect as my ps said this would happen due to the technique he used for minimal scarring below the breasts & maximum perkiness.
I am unsure if i can get comp access where i'm heading, if anyone has any hints or feels there may be something wrong, please feel free to call or txt me on - 00660800749365
I'm hoping to get internet access at the condo, but if not your opinions mean the world to me & would be great to get some piece of mind!
Hello ladies, & Happy New Year to all of my...
So it's 19 day's po, feeling good...been applying palmers oil, sparingly, to my nipple area & scars, as they were becoming quite dry & on the great advice of Collete, it seems to help.
I have been feeling quite poorly the past few day's...not sure if it's my body's way of telling me to take it more easy, not that i could on the beautiful Island of Koh Chang! :)
How are all you po ladies feeling? Thinking of you all & sending big healing hugs x x
I have uploaded new pics taken today x
Hi Ladies, i hope everyone is well x Quick...

Any advice / feedback from my friends on here would be much appreciated x x
