No Longer Flat As a Pancake! - Thailand

Hi girls! You can just call me B, I'm 23yrs old,...

Hi girls! You can just call me B, I'm 23yrs old, 170cm tall, 50kg and live in Australia!
I am currently at 3 months post op, and are absolutely loving my new assets!!! My breast surgery stats are below:

Went from not being able to fill an A cup (probably AA cup) to filling a small C cup
320CC
High Profile
Silicone
Tear-drop
Dual-plane (both under & over the muscle)
Incision under the breast fold
$5,000

In Australia, the cost of breast augmentation ranges between $10,000-$12,000. For me, having recently graduated from university, I wasn't able to even consider being able to save up that much money, and I had no intentions on getting a loan for them. So, after meeting a girl at my new job who told me about a company in Austalia that organises a group of girls to go over to Thailand and get surgery over there together (and only $3,500-$5,000)!!

After paying the management fee, buying flights to Thailand and booking accommodation in Phuket, it was all ready to go! All I had to do was get the courage to jump on the plane and go through with the whole experience.

Looking back on it now, I can't believe I actually did it and went through with it! After three months, they had definitely dropped, softened and look more natural now. I can actually fill dresses now, show off cleavage, wear swimmers without being self-conscious that others are starring at a flat chest, and go around not wearing a bra and not caring!! It was definitely worth it in the end, and am recommending it to any of my flat friends who are wanting to change their lives as well =D

1year & 4months post op

Can't believe I've had these gorgeous puppies for boobs for over a year now. I've had no dramas at all and love to get them out in swimmers on the beach. I don't feel like they look fake at all - more like beautifully perky boobs! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about Thailand, Somnio or my surgeon Dr V! :)

Over 1yr post op pics

Just to show what these babies looked like when they dropped and how they look now, which is still perky! :)

Two years post op!

I am officially 2years post op as of tomorrow! Couldn't be happier with my decision back in 2012. Look and feel fantastic in swimmers, dresses (especially without having to wear a bra) lingerie, and bras like in the pic attached. They're so much apart of me now that I can't even remember the pancake life before :P Good luck to anyone about to embark on the same journey as me. Glad we have RealSelf to support each other in your decisions :)

Hi nice photos! Was wondering where you got your bikini on your last photo- black with the pink accent? Those r super cute!! Thanks!

Great decision hun, they look great. I live in Australia too, got them done by Dr Dona (paid $8,800 - which is not too bad) but my 2nd option was Thailand. There are so many reviews and references that I'd have felt confident too. I'll get one of my gf to research the company u r talking about, as she definitely wants to go to Thailand to get her boobies. Well done and congrats on your 2nd Year post op milestone!

i want to know how are your wounds? does it leave bad scarring? does the silicone inside feels soft like real breasts?
  • Reply
Hi ccwxy, I get bad scarring anyway so I knew my scars would fade slowly and they have. Unfortunately there's not much point researching scar recovery because each person recovers at a different rate. As for the feeling of them, they will always feel harder and less normal than any natural breast, that's a given. They do soften over time, don't think they feel like rocks forever! :)

Hello. May I know how long your doctor took to get back to you with his recommendations after you've sent him your photos?
  • Reply
Hu xxxxy I went through Somnio so they were the 'middle man' between the doc & me. Took over a week perhaps.. I'm sure you already have your recommendations by now :) Good luck! Any other questions let me know :)

Thank you for the reply! may I know why you chose tear drop over round and why dual plane over sub muscular? Were they the only recommendation by the doctor? Cause he recommended me either round or tear drop and either dual plane or submuscular placement. A lot of his patients seem to go for tear drop and dual plane. I actually prefer round and submuscular so I was wondering if you had a choice or if those were the only recommendations. :)
  • Reply
Hi xxxxy, I didn't choose those myself. When Dr V recommends either options, it means that he needs to assess you during your consult because you can only recommend so much from a few photos. If you prefer round yet in the consult he strongly recommends tear drop, will you go against your surgeons suggestion? Most likely not. They know what is best and what will look better for you in the long run. So experienced, you know you're in safe capable hands so you can't really prepare much else before the consult except maybe bring a few photos in of what you want to aim for :) Good luck!

Hi B! I'm considering going to Dr V for my breast augment revision. Are you still happy with yours?
  • Reply
B your post/page was my decision maker on getting my B.A. I had researched loads about PIAC but when I found your post I knew it was safe. Your weight/height was exactly the same as me so I could see an outcome. I had mine done by dr V In January this year and I could not be happier with them, I got 375cc round (preferred look) & dual plane.I was told they would be a big b or small c, they are measuring 34dd europe 10dd Australia or 75e Thailand.Best decision I ever made. Dr V is an expert and the hospital is amazing. I didn't use any agencies and had no problem, I had no pain after and had perfect range of movement, I was on the beach the day after. If anyone wants extra info I'm happy to help.

I also paid 130,000 thb for mine and was quoted 160,000 for tear drop, that's PIAC prices.

Hi Gem.ire, your reply is very helpful to someone like me. I have heard only good reviews of Dr V and i think yours is the clincher. :)
  • Reply
I honestly can't say a bad word about any of my experience, the part being wheeled into the surgery was daunting but also exciting, before I knew it I was awake with mountains on my chest :-) never been happier xxx

I am also going with Dr V in September. It's good being able to read other's experiences. Thank you, your reply has made me feel even more confident that I have chosen the right Dr. Was there anything in general you needed to take or you took that helped?

The more time goes on, the happier I am with mt decision!! I am actually on a tour round Europe at the moment and have eaten so much food that I've put on a bit of weight so they're even bigger now, woo!! Haha love the look of them in swimmers so can't wait to get them out in the Greek Is next month! If you go with Dr V you will NOT be disappointed, that's a guarantee :) good luck!
