Best thing ever done!!

Hi guy's,
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, im new to this site today & still trying to suss it out! Can you guy's read my info?

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!

Cheers x

I'm due to get my reduction on the 15th Dec in Thailand. I'm a 34 F 33 & 10 stone, i wan't to go to a C,
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...

Hi ladies! Hope everone is either healing well, or for women like me, feeling ok & not too nervous about surgery...like myself lo!
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.
Cheers x

Hello ladies! I hope you are all healing well :)...

Hello ladies! I hope you are all healing well :) or for those of you awaiting your BR like me, i hope your trying not to worry too much!
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 :)

Hello ladies :)
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 Bangkok feeling mega nervous & stressing about everything! Now i am strangely calm (ish) lol
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...

Hello my friends! Hope your'e all healing well & for those of you waiting for BR, try to stay calm. Waiting truly is the hardest part!
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...

Hello ladies! Hope everyone is recovering well & those with upcoming BR, best of luck :)
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

Hi Ladies, hope you are all enjoying your new xmas...

Hi Ladies, hope you are all enjoying your new xmas 'prezzies'!
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!
Healing hugs

Hello ladies, & Happy New Year to all of my friends on here...2013 IS OUR YEAR!!
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...

Hi Lexi, I am thinking of going to Thailand for BR surgery can you tell me how you chose your PS and what hospital did he use for the surgery and anything else that could help by the way your boobs look great thanks in advance

Hey haelgirl, i had my BR op at Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital in Bangkok. Dr Thiti did the procedure. He was excellent, listened to all my concerns etc & all the staff were very attentive & the hospital was more like a hotel! I recovered really well & had very little pain afterwards, more discomfort than anything. I'm now 4 months on & the scars are barely visible! Best of luck! x

Hey honey! whats it like being home? the boobies will drop and continue to change shape for up to a year so no panicking! you look great. xxxxx

Helloooo! How ya doin hun? Guess i got a shock as didn't expect the girls to semi sag so quick!! How long until your swelling had noticeably gone down? I'm a D & v happy with it, but just last thing i want is saggy / sweaty girls again!! Not home until Fri, looking forward to seeing everyone but not the cold lol! Was gutted when all my pics disapeared from my profile :( Was great to be able to look at this journey i've been on! Anyway, enough moaning lol! How are you m'dear? How's all with you? xxx

I noticed that too. So different from the first few weeks post op. Mine are still small and perky just a bit softer. Last night when I was power walking I noticed the bounce felt so much better than the pre-op BOUNCE! LOL
  • Reply
Hey CC, that is def something that is worrying me! When i saw my surgeon on the 12th for our last app, he assured me they would stay perky & the nipples would still be high, but that the breast needs to transform fuller on the underside, which i'm guessing is the sagging feeling!! x x
  • Reply
That sounds about right. The girls are perky, just softer and fuller on the underside but looking up not down at my knees...
  • Reply
I found that once the swelling went away they started to sag a little more than I would have liked! I liked them swollen and HIGH on my chest! Mine are so small now though that even the wee bit they sag is nothing I just want firm VERY perky titties! Welcome home but boo to being outta the warm and into the cold!
  • Reply
Hey CC, & sorry to Colette above..i got the names mixed up lol! I too am worried about the sagging, after all we have gone through more pain & guess i wanted to keep my po high on my chest boobies too! But i guess as i'm a D there is more chance of sagging, but hopefully, there is still swelling! Not home yet, 17th not lookin forward the cold lol x x
  • Reply
Lexi, You are looking fabulous! You're healing so well...happy for you!
  • Reply
Thanks Colette! I've started using bio oil & gently massaging them, it seems to help when they feel tender / sore! How are you doing hun? x x
  • Reply
Doing great.. swelling virtually gone, just working on the scar treatment. I do notice that when I missed the silicone treatment for a day I started to itch... Every day I enjoy looking at the girls smiling back at me! What a wonderful present I gave myself. Hope you're doing well. XO

Wow, Lexi, Your pictures look great! You already look nice and rounded. I look like I have a shoebox on. LOL

Thanks Bella! Thats really nice of you, tbh was a bit worried the righty is healing better than the lefty! You don't look like you have a shoe box on lol! Cheers for the advice on the Bio Oil, expensive, but worth it! :) x

My PS recommends Bio Oil, so Im sure it's fine. Just keep an eye out for redness. Glad you are doing so well!
