I know I still have weight to lose but I made promise to myself at the end of last year that I wasn't going to live this life anymore, I was going to change and become the better version of myself and to help kick start this I wanted these disgusting tuckshop arms gone.
I googled Brachioplasty in Melbourne and I came across this wonderful website, which in turn allowed me to find Mr Richard Bloom. I read all of his reviews, I read nearly all of his responses to people's questions and knew I had to book a consultation. Consultation was booked but my GP wanted me to see a Plastic Surgeon she had dealings with first, so I did but knew in my heart that Mr Bloom was the surgeon for me. Met with the other Surgeon, as lovely and experienced as he was I just needed to meet with Mr Bloom and so glad that I did.
I am now 13 days post op and am the happiest I have EVER been.
I had an arm lift, right breast reduction to match my left breast then a lift. I also had liposuction on my back and side and the excess skin on my bra line removed as well.
Had a lot of bruising but I'm a bruiser anyway so I wasn't overly shocked. But to be honest the pain isn't as bad as I expected, it's more of a discomfort. 5-6 days post op was probably the worst pain wise, especially from the liposuction, it felt like a burning sensation to me but I stopped the strong pain mess about 6 days ago and only take nurofen if need be.
I had my operation at Linley Clinic in Canterbury and I cannot recommend them highly enough, room was fantastic and the nurses exceeded every expectation. Truly been the best experience of my life.... The world is my oyster..
