Hi everyone , I have been so inspired by this site, I'm seriously thinking of having my 250cc implants taken out and not replaced, I was a very small A cup before and I,m 45 years old so quite worried what they will look like, they are over the muscle and don't think they spring back in to shape as well as the under muscle ones do, please tell me yor thoughts

Had surgery today , all went well, breasts look good at the moment, a bit swollen, and still quite big but I know a lot of the fat that they transferred will not survive and i will end up with little boobies
eventually, most of the fat was taken from lower back and that is where all the pain is,it's vey bruised and tender and I'm getting a burning sensation to, I'm clock watching to take my pain killers, that's how sore it is, will upload photo,s soon

Day 8 today, and i am so delighted with my results so far, boobs have shrunk a little but thats to be expected ,went to have dressings taken off with nurse yesterday and everything is healing very well, my scares are barely noticeable already, he,s done a fab job, boobs r still very bruised but not at all painful, my fat donor site is still a bit sore, I still don't know how much fat was put in each boob, I did ask the nurse but she couldn't read docs writing , it was called autologous fat transfer, what ever that is,, if anyone of u ladies goes ahead with this, I highly recommend a belvia bra , u can buy them from boots for 14.99 and it has been a god send, I wear it 24 hours a day and I don't even feel like I,v got anything on, so comfy yet very supportive, I have uploaded new photo, taken today

Thanks for sharing your expericance and photos. Can anyone recommend a specialist doctor (I like the sound of Mehboob ali - as he had expericance with cancer patients not just vanity) but I'm in London. I need removal and fat transfer will have to pay and go private.

Hi Mandy23550, You look great for only 3 weeks out from surgery. I scheduled my fat transfer for March 8th and have been wearing the Brava domes for 10 days now. Wearing them isn't as bad as I thought it would be. I can't wait for the fat transfer but am a little scared about the lipo part of it. I just started a review last night and will be posting pics to it once its approved. I'm sure your results will just keep getting better.

Hi and thankyou , I am very pleased with results, look forward to reading your profile and following your journey, the lipo is very painful to be honest but as far as I'm concerned it was worth it and the most pain is not for to long

They are looking fabulous Mandy, I am seeing him when I come to the UK, be said the type if implants I now have I may have to have lots of breast tissue removed as they are the polyuothane ones that adhere And cause capsular contraction :( I hope not or I need an uplift to:( .. I have to wait and see... I hope I can get away with

What's a brava dome?? Is it a padded bra? I am clueless! :)

Hi rachelle, good luck , I don't really kno what brava is but lots of lady,s talk about it on here but none of the surgeons mentioned it to me and I went to 3 different consultations, mr Ali is very good and he will tell u the truth
  • Reply
The brava dome is like a big heavy plastic type boob that has a silicone rim around it. You put one over each boob hook up the vacume tubbing and connect it to a pump. Once the pump in turned on it creates suction on your boobs to expand them and create new tissue growth, that way more fat can be injected into the breasts with a better chance of survival. I have pics of me wearing mine so as soon as realself gets my review up I will post the pics.

Hello Mandy, this is exactly the procedure I hoped for . Please can you post the full details of your Dr? Was the total cost 2500? , it's hard to find a surgeon who does it all at once... I am keen to see future pictures so keep us updated .. They look fab X Rachelle

Hi rachelle, price was £3700 all in, I don't know why that price came up on my profile, but my doc was mr mahboob Ali , ( honestly that's his name) he works around the midlands , I had mine done in halesowen, if type in his name on google , he comes up and he,s got really good revues , I checked him out b4 I went ahead with procedure, he also works for NHS with cancer patients doing reconstructive surgery to breasts, so far I am pleased with results, I will be posting more pics and update when I have my dressings taken off this week, good luck keep me updated,
