I had my op Tuesday and have had zero pain whatsoever which I found bizarre for having unders.
I noticed today that my pre op pic where I had been drawn on says SG WHICH MEANS OVER!!
at my consultation I was told I would have to go under which I wanted anyway as we have a history of Breast cancer in the family so it’s technically more safe for screening reasons to go under. I was also told as I am very slim overs would look fake which I never ever wanted I just wanted fuller boobs!!
My boobs are now round an stuck on looking an I am so upset!! My mum is also upset as we now have a life time of worrying that any lumps could go undected!!.
It took my mum a long time to come around to the idea of having a BA As it is a sensitive subject as my nan died from breast cancer.
It was never even discussed to me about having overs as we stressed I wanted unders on my consultation.
I rang my pc earlier to double check that what i had an she confirmed that it was overs!! I want them out i hate them, they are too big an round and I never asked for overs!
I honestly don’t know why I’ve been given them when I am so petite.
Sorry for the rant girls but needed to get it off my chest argh!
Oh Sam that’s terrible, absolutely disgraceful for something that important to be mixed up. I’m sure they will still look great when settled but that’s really beside the point with your family history. Big hugs, you should definitely take this further xxx
I know I am absolutely shocked and devasted!!
When he drew on my chest I obviously didn’t think twice to even have to ask if he was doing unders as I’ve had consulatations elsewhere an they all said the same thing that I am not even a candidate for overs cos I’m so petite!
And as for the Breast cancer reasons, I would never of gone ahead if I was told i couldn’t have unders! It was unders or nothing for me I just can’t believe it!!.
I wonder what can actually be done?! Xxx
Do you have your pre op documents that you signed which say unders? If so then I would think they you would have grounds for legal action or at least revision surgery based on the undue distress caused to you and the possible future implications for your health. Probably the last thing you want to be worrying about at this point in time though chick. Really hope you can get this sorted xxx
Yeah I have them but can’t read a word of his writing it’s awful!!
I have my nurse appointment on Monday so I am gonna take it further then just can’t believe it overs weren’t even discussed!! Xxx

That’s awfful. I’m so sorry to hear this has happened to you.
I had the opposite where I was always told overs but ended up with unders without being told…but, I didn’t actually mind. Can’t imagine how upset you must be.
Definitely take it further and see what can be done for you, they’ll probably sort something out just to avoid potential legal action and to maintain the company’s reputation.
In the meantime, you’re only a few days PO so how they look now is totally different to how they will look. So, if it takes a little time to get the ball rolling, you at least won’t always look as you do now…if that makes sense?
All sympathy & best wishes,
Who was your surgeon?
I know I just can’t even believe it has happened I feel sick to the stomach!!
If I was to have a revision I’d have to wait a long time wouldn’t I for my scars now to heal over etc.. I was getting my boobs done as I am moving to Dubai early next year to start a new job which is my dream job! but now I wouldn’t be able to if I were to get more surgery!! So that’s a massive blow.
I could probably get used to the way they looked but I doesn’t take away the fact they could potentially be hiding lumps in the future! If I didn’t have the family history I probably wouldn’t be toooo bothered about it but this is a massive thing to me and my mum xx
@sam – blimey that is a shocker and you need to contact MYA ASAP and start a process to get this resolved. I know you said you are going to Dubai but if MYA agree to sort this out it could be delayed and re-booked for a later date maybe when u come home for a few weeks. Do let us know how it goes xxxx
So sorry to read about this ! It’s so bad! Who was your surgeon? Imagine if you hadn’t spotted the error. I would start with writing an almighty complaint prior to even seeing the nurse. You discussed unders ! You needed unders! They will need to redo ur op as well as give u some money back for their mistake !!
I had Dr Marcellino, so not the same one as you.
Aw, geez that really is an awful combination of things – moving away, potential lumps… I’m sorry. Maybe you could get some form of compensation and look into surgery closer to where you’re moving? I don’t know, it’s really awful they’ve put you in this position.
I think there are still ways to check for these things even with overs, they just make it a little more difficult. So, if you maybe discuss with your surgeon the ways best to check/keep a close relationship with a doctor who knows you have implants they can maybe help you keep on top of your checks in a way you might not be able to do yourself.
I really hope something is worked out for you lovely, keep us updated on how it all goes at your next appointment. I hope you get something helpful out of it that will ease your mind and your mum’s.
Oh no Sam that’s terrible! What a massive mistake to make! I can understand your upset. What is the next step? Are u going to have them removed? Xx
That is awful! I’ve just had my op cancelled one week before, because the nurse only told me at a late stage that I needed to get a mammogram, which they found a lump, breast cancer runs in my family too as my mum past away from it.
I feel it’s all a bit disorganized.
Now having a biopsy on Tuesday to check its all ok. I feel your pain xx
That’s awful I can’t believe he didnt talk 2 u about everything whilst drawing on u!! He should of doubled checked everything b4 doing the op!! I would put on a complaint and find out how he made such a big mistake. They still look amazing tho and they will only get better but I understand the concern about cancer.xx
@samanthaxox OMG Sam I would be fuminggg!!! It was unders or nothing for me too I wouldn’t of had them at all if I was told it had to be overs, I was so adamant I made a point of saying to dr traynor when he drew on me ‘they’re definitely going to be unders aren’t they’ and he said yes, this has slightly made me think twice about mine now but when I look at mine and the pain I’ve had im pretty sure they’re unders. Yours do look more like overs tho so this explains it! I feel like dr traynor prefers overs as I see a lot more girls having overs with him than unders but I cannot understand why he’s done that with you being so petite and never discussing overs. I’m so shocked at this and I hope you get ALL your money back because this is literally a huge mistake to make x
I’m glad you all agree!! Shocking mistake to make.
It just didn’t cross my mind that i would have to ask him that they would definitely be going under! Cos on my consultation he kept making a point that I was a “skinny girl” so why on the day was i not a skinny girl?! Madness!. I went for consultations elsewhere and they all said to me definitely unders for you!
I have also realised that i wouldn’t be able to breast feed now! Which is a massive thing isn’t it! I would definitely want to of breast fed.
@lucy2016 now I know why mine look so differnt to yours!! Can’t believe I wouldn’t of even known if I didn’t take a pic of my chest when I had been drawn on so scary isn’t it!!
I will keep you all updated after Monday xxx
That awful feel so sorry for you Hun I’m only 7stone 12 so small like you and I have 400 unders and mine look quite fake so can imagine how angry and upset u must me I would defo take it further can’t believe he made such a mistake I always new I wanted. Unders as I have never had children I wanted to be able to have the choice to breast feed and surgeon said as I was so flat chested the chances of them sagging were higher xx
I know that’s another thing too the sagging!! They are so bottom heavy it’s unreal when I take my bra off to swap over it actually takes my breath away the weight of them!
Can’t wait for Monday now xx
That’s awful , the same nearly happened to me at my pre op they said over but it was discussed I would be having unders as that’s what I wanted. On the day of my surgery I had to sign more consent forms and my size / unders was in the forms . Do you know if you had this ?
I did sign things on the day yes but the copies of things I’ve got don’t state overs or unders.
I will have a look at my pre op notes on Monday hopefully they will say it on there x
Good luck today babe ! Xx
Hope you get some answers today darling! Xx
Oh gosh I’ve just read this…..thinking of you and waiting for news xx
How did you get on Sam?
