- 1 Jul 2012
My scaring from the incisions barely visible, it is about 1” long on each breast around he lower edge of the aloe. The stitches were so so fine, I am so impressed.
When considering my recovery, I have been very fast, on the better end of the advice I was given and better. I put this down to, yes a great surgical team, but when the surgery finishes, you have to do the rest. I have followed the postoperative advice to the letter.
I am 63 Kg, 1.8m/ 5’11”. Through pilaties every day I have good core strength. This all helped me carefully moving post operation, so much that it was noted by the nurse I had to care for me for the first 24 hours from discharge. I have a very good diet and take particularly good care of myself.
I look upon my surgery as life enhancing and I am so glad I did it, $7000 well spent. It is my intention to do it all again in a year or 2 to get me to the breast size I have always wanted. My skin can only stretch so far in one go, it is indeed stretching further that I had thought possible and twice as much as surgeons locally to me in Australia had suggested they could manage. I have 400 cc of Saline each side.
Next time I will do the same again, same surgeon and ask him to make them as large as he can safely. I trusted him last time and I have every reason to do so again.

Being transgender, with no breasts, I love boobs and missed having them. I decided to rectify this situation. I have girlfriends who have had “boob jobs”, so I was somewhat aware of what was achievable, and if I was to make any impression on my front, then I needed a specialist surgeon. I did the “net search”, enquired locally as well as the obligatory “Thai Hospital”. I ended up time and time again with my search for XL breast augmentation the same Southern Californian surgeon. Having decided to have a breast augmentation I also decided to go big as I had been wearing my EE false silicone prosthesis 24/7. I wore these right up to the operation. I had at that time been wear these for a year, so that I could as best as I cold be sure I was making the right decision. I am now 1 month post op, I have never had any doubts about my decision or the surgeon I chose.
