I'm 38 years old mother of 2 teenagers - Breast Augmentation - Bangkok, Thailand

I'm 38 years old mother of 2 teenagers,...

I'm 38 years old mother of 2 teenagers, happily married and i feel really healthy and happy with my body BUT i dont like my boobs, i am a deflated B cup ( size 8B) i weight 54kg, and i feel so self conscious of my breasts, there are certian clothes that i cant wear they would just look silly on me. My husband ( of almost 20 yrs) is supportive but says ' dont worry , i love your boobs, you look great etc etc" but i dont feel womanly, or sexy, so about a year ago i looked into getting a BA in thailand ( i just couldnt ever afford or justify getting one done in australia, i have never even had a consult in aus). i found a company called global health travel and they have made all the arrangments for me.

Type and size ! ok the type i know mentor,...

type and size !
ok the type i know mentor, silcione proberly high profile, as i have grade 1 ptosis and i want to avoid a lift, the surgeon, from looking at photos ( remember i dont actaully get to see him so no consult untill day before, this is the scary bit for me- as i like to know excatly what is going to happen) anyway, from the photos he thinks i should be ok to not have a lift ( fingers and toes crossed as i DO NOT want a lift, i'll let you in on a secret - i really like my nipples!! )
now the size i have done the rice test ( and then foolishly left them on the table so the dog ate them, there was rice i swear in every room! argh!!) i thought from that about 300-350 ish!!! but once again that we be decided the day before!
I think this for me will be a bit stressful, as i find it hard to decide on choosing a meal from a menu, and now i have to choose my breast sizes!!!!!!!! lucky i have my hubby coming over with me.
so its 9 days to go, i will be making you tube videos to share this experince , and i will post up the links

26th may
we flew in from sydney to bankok last night, flight was good, ( THAI airways) and the hotel is nice ( president solitare). i cant sleep as i am so excited/nervous regarding my consult today, as today is the day i find out lift or not lift ( i'm hoping NO LIFT)

26th may
today i had my consult ( we arrived in bangkok last night) Dr Terrasit was nice and went through everything, showed lots of examples of others pre and post op, i was nervous as i was borerline re needing a lift, but he is happy to do the implants only !! so NO LIFT !!!
here is a little video i made tonight, surgery is tomorrow

Surgery and post op i was really calm going into...

surgery and post op
i was really calm going into theatre, and not nervous at all which realy surprised me, the surgery went well, after the operation i was put on a morphine drip and had calf comprssors on my legs to prevent clots, i felt like i had an elephant sitting on my chest, they felt so heavy and sore, it was sore even to move slightly in the bed and getting up to the toilet! ouch. 5 hours post op i started vomiting so i asked them to take the morphine drip down and since then have felt much better, i was given a sleeping tablet and had a good nights sleep, i am now only on panadine forte, and i havent vomiting anymore, i am glad my hubby is here with me and he has been so helpful , i would recommed if possible to take someone over with you. ( if your getting surgery overseas like myself)
this mornig the dr will come and take off the compressin bandage and i will get to see mu boobs, i know when i first see them thats now how they will always look they will be swollen and high. i have been having ice packs on my chest, which are nice/

I have been discharged from the hospital and now...

i have been discharged from the hospital and now back relaxing at the hotel, i am happy with the results and happy i didnt have a lift, its ust at the moment as the are swollen and sitting high, i feel a bit weird, but i understand they will settle down, they should look natural.

Today is day 5 and i am feeling ok , i am not...

today is day 5 and i am feeling ok , i am not taking as many pain killers now. i have started doing the massages and wearing the strap, which i actaully dont mind, i feel "secure" in the strap, and i want them to drop, so happy to wear it,
i had a real emotional day yesterday, i was at dinner and started crying ! ( always a good look!) i just flet over whelmed, sore,tired ( and i had just gotten up from a sleep!!) and to top it off i am in bangkok and the spring rolls where shit! so i cried!!
my wounds are still covered by a little water proof dressing that will get changed tomorrow when i have my final consult with my surgeon, i then have to ask all my questions.
so far the questions i have are
1. when can i shower.
2. when can i run / exercise
3. when can i apply cream etc to the scar,
4. when do i get to sutures removed
5. what happens if i have a problem or Q , can i contact the Dr ( i am in australia, he is in thailand)
6. when should i wear a bra ? underwire or not?
7. do i wear a bra to sleep
8. how long do i wear the strap for ?

we fly home tomorrow ( thank god!) some people love thailand and bangkok but its to busy for me, i have liked not being at home, but i want to go home now.
so far i am very happy with my decision NOT to have the lift, i think once the implants drop i will love the shape, i like the size

Hi well i am now 10 days post op, i am feeling...

hi well i am now 10 days post op, i am feeling well really just today though, up untill today i felt exhausted! it really took alot more out of me then i ever imagined, even though leading up i was fit and healthy, no drinking for 8 weeks pre op ( i dont smoke) i exercise and i was taking vit C and zinc.
my only concern now is that my surgeon recommends that the sutures ( ill post a pic) that they be removed on day 21, and i feel this is way to long! i have reasearch other surgeons and most are removed day 7-10. so i feel this will leave me with scars if i leave this long, i have emailed my surgeon, and asked if i can get them removed earlier,
i am still wearing the strap and no bra ( well i did wear a bra out for lunch , i just felt too uncomfortable with no bra !) but i think they are slowly starting to drop and settle, i am doing the massages, and i am sleeping on my side, i still cant shower ( not untill day 14) so looking forward to that morning!!!
i'll let you know about the sutures

Sutures are out! ok well i am 3 weeks now! time...

sutures are out!
ok well i am 3 weeks now! time has flown, i am feeling really good now, but really have had a tough emotinal week, last week i felt very emotinal and paranoid and anxious and nervous! so not a good combo! i felt good on the friday ( 11 days post op) so i cleaned the house and went grocery shopping, by friday evening i was sore espically on my right side, ( i think because i am right handed and i vacumed and mopped) so i was convienced i had CC! and then the next day i had to change my sterri strips on the wounds and i took a photo and i was convienced i had an infection! to the point of going to the GP and making him give me a script for antibiotics. since then i had to make a point of being positive! ( all this time i had been in emial contact with the surgeon in thailand and sending him photos, he would then send me his repsonse, he was wonderful)
so i have had a much better week, i had been to see my GP ( again) and he said the wounds were looking great and no signs of infection, we then decided to wait a few more days to make it closer to the 3 weeks that my surgeon wants for suture removal. i then went back to the GP to get the sutures out, but unfortunatley a little bit of a suture retreacted inside and they couldnt get it out, apparently it will cause no harm, it will either stay inside forever and not be a problem OR it my body will try and expel it and it will make its way out, so then if i see anything to go the the GP and they can take it out.

I am now 7 weeks post op and i am healing realy...

i am now 7 weeks post op and i am healing realy well, i am using a few things to treat the scars - scilone sheets overnight, and during the day either vit E oil or an organic scar healing oil from earth sistas ( its like a boi oil, but with no pretrolum)
i went and got bra sized and i am 8E but i can ( brand depending) fit into some 10DD's ( they are easier to find, so i have to hunt around from some nice bras)

almost 2 yrs

hi its almost been 2 years since my BA, i am still loving them, my scars are still visible but that isn't bothering me. I have been measured for bras and wear a 6 G !!! i know huge !!! but most days i don't feel that they are that big.
I wear a bra ( wireless) to bed each night and always wear a bra ( unless in swimmers or strapless dress)
