ive sent you a pm hun my name is laila1809 on there xxxxxx
hi clareee i don’t mind drains im a nurse and have experience with them in the past, there a good thing if you need them. i have booked a weeks holiday off work and told my boss why, just incase the op date gets changed i can always work instead. I will probably ring in sick the beginning of the following week if i have to. im never off sick so i will be ok. i work 3days now as i have a 3 year old and as my job is currently a specialist nursing post it’s more patient education and office based, not physical. only about 7 weeks away!
Oooh you’ll be fine then Naomi you won’t need to take time off sick I dare say you’ll be back at work and feeling fine with it
When I went back to work i only found walking about (more than just to get from my desk to the loos, like getting from bus stop to desk for instance) to be a bit of a weird feeling, like perhaps my implants would slip out of their pocket or something haha but that was only the case for the first couple of days and after that every day I felt loads better and less like I wanted to ‘hold them on’ hehehehee although when I first washed my hair over the side of the bath myself (at the point one is still unable to shower) I had to do it one handed cos I was holding my boobs on! HAHAHAHAAA I musta looked very silly. Lucky no-one saw me really…
Clareee lol you’re not wearing chicken fillets anymore!!!! I can’t wait to get these same feelings xxx

Great news that helen did a good job and you are happy! I have a consultation with her next weekend and hopefully she will be right for me too I saw Dr Kazzazi first and havent felt right about him for a while as I want a natural look and he seems happy to put the largest implant possible in me!! Hopefully she will be a bit more understanding and spend more time with me in the consultation.
Dr Chantarasak (prob not spelt right) favours the natural look hun so if you find you still arent happy, try him cos he prefers to do natural looking implants! xx
I had Helena and she was FABULOUS! My cuts are SOOOOOOOOOOO straight and neat its amazing!
I wasnt long with her at consult but I told her what I wanted and she just seemed to immediately know the right size etc after measuring and we just went through what we needed to, I didnt really have any questions I hadnt talked through with my PC or researched so that was that and I left.
When I went in for surgery she had a big smile for me and was very reassuring. We had a little joke and I felt really excited again and even tho I had expected to be sat around for a few hours waiting she came in and said that the other girl she was supposed to be operating on had eaten toast that morning so had to wait until later in the day so I was going to theatre in 15 minutes. EEK!! …
Anyway I’m about 4 weeks post op now and I am SOOOOOOOO happy my scars are so unbelievably neat and tidy and disappearing off nicely (which is why I went with her because I was told she was very neat and this is what you’re left with in view alongside your lovely boobs) and my boobs are fab and natural looking
I would definitely recommend her to EVERYONE. xx
hi….i had consult with helena last week. am thinkin of goin ahead with her. do u mind me asking wat size stats u were before and wat implants u have?? thanx xxx
I also had a consult with Helena last week and I am booked in for surgery on 25th March i’m so excited!!!!!!! I did come away though feeling that she is not letting me go as big as what I wanted so my PC is ordering me the next size up aswell so that I can retry on the implants next week decisions decissions what to do?????
i never got to try any implants on…… wat size has she advised u to go and wat size do u want to be??
I was a 34b before and am now a 34DD. I had 410cc hp unders. My stats are 5’11” and between a 10 and 12 in clothing.
I was given some implant sizes to try in a sports bra to see how I felt about potential projection and size and to be honest I just thought “I know they’ll not be like this and this is probably a bit of a rubbishy way of trying to plan for my surgery” so I just took that bit of the process with a pinch of salt. I told Helena what size I wanted to achieve and I let her advise me. My PC had suggested 340 or 380 overs or 380 unders but Helena went straight in with 410cc unders as I told her I wanted unders. I have to say I’m extremely happy with the results I do sometimes look at myself in my sports bra and think “wow, not so big, boo” but then without the sports bra they look massive compared to before YAY and I just keep thinking I’ll be able to wear a normal bra again soon and they’ll look better then than in these not-so-sexy sports bras hahahaa
hi gemz, ive got a consultation with her on the 3rd april, im currently a 34a, size 12, 5’9”, want to be a a d cup, but not sure what cc size, hanve you got any photos. were you in a lot of pain afterwards, how was mrs antoniadou? ta
claree….ok thanx for that, i said id prefer unders but she didnt really seem keen and said i cud go over as i had enough tissue?? do u have any pics?? @naomi i havent had them done yet hun xxx
Did you ask her why she was encouraging you to go for overs? I have some pics on Sofem and am going to upload some more v soon. The ones up there at the mo are awful because I’m at the 1-week fem-bot stage of boobs hahahaha I’m 5 weeks post op now and they look miles better.
I’m Clareeee on Sofem and if you pm me on there I’ll send you my password
hi clareeee i posted a msg on here for you but put gemz name on it it was suppose to be for you, can you look at it pls if you don’t mind thanks soz gemz,
Are you on Sofem? If so go look for me on there and pm me and I’ll send you my password for my photos.
I wasn’t in pain afterwards exactly, I was groggy from the ga and physically my chest was very tight and ‘stuffed’ full of boob (lol) which was a bit uncomfortable (your skin is being stretched somewhat!). I took the codeine for a couple of nights but not during the day as I didnt feel I needed it. Mobility was very difficult for the first day or so and I felt a bit sorry for myself because of course you cant do anything for yourself at first! on day 2 I felt a bit down about having had the op but I remembered the ga can make you feel emotional and that I might feel some regret while the going was tough but that was the only day I felt negative. The rest of the time was just slow and steady bumbling about my house and trying not to do too much. I’m so happy now it’s FABULOUS!
You’re quite tall and the same size as me so you might wanna ask for a DD cup. I asked for a DD and am filling a DD sports bra but it’s like the girls say on Sofem conversations that they dont look/seem as big as you might have thought or as big as natural boobs the same size look. I’m well in proportion with mine and I would be still if I’d had 460s but at the same time I’m glad I’m not an E or F because I think clothing would be difficult. My clothing still fits but any bigger and I think I’d be mourning some of my favourite items
Helena is great, she’s very professional and has given me exactly what I asked for. My scars/cuts are so neat and straight they’re perfect.
Whatever you guys do make sure you get some comfy baggy shirts to wear for the first week cos you won’t want to or be able to lift your arms over your head to put other clothing on!
thanks clareee im not on sofem. but i have got an email address it’s email@example.com. did you have overs or unders? thanks for getting back to me its so helpfull. I think i want to be a full d cup. Im seeing her sat 3rd april and hopefully having op 10th may, ive paid the deposit, just want my new boobs for the summer.
i suppose all the waiting dosen’t help !
I had unders because I could have had either and I wanted to avoid rippling so didnt want overs. I’ll send you some pics later in the week when I’ve taken some more up to date ones.
Before you know it you’ll have had your consultation and you’ll be packing your overnight bag for surgery. I assume you’ll be an overnight case? By the way, she may talk about drains with you at consultation as she told me she uses drains. I didn’t have a problem with having drains because I would prefer to have drains put in to be on the safe side rather than none and then get a collection of fluids somewhere but she actually didnt use them because she didnt need to. Don’t be put off by that if she mentions drains.
How much time have you booked off work?
thanx claree ill message u on so fem in a min xx
I am currently a 32 A/B cup size 8/10 top and I told Helena I wanted to be a 32 DD/E and Helena basically looked at me as if I had 2 heads. Helena has recommended a 410 under which will make me a D. I am hoping on the day that she will let me go a little bit bigger after all I was an F cup 9 months ago when I was pregnant so it’s not like they won’t fit.
Your post made me chuckle! To be honest I’d say Helena is quite “greek” in her mannerisms so may come across as slightly ‘cold’. I remember going to doctors when I was sick (when I lived in greece) and the doctors were just being professional in their way but I felt like I should perhaps just leave their surgery
Anyway, on surgery day Helena was very warm and encouraging in comparison to first impressions. I told her I wanted to be a DD and she just moved straight onto passing me 410s and saying to put the sports bra on with them to try while writing her notes. I just got on with it and left and thought “oh, that was quick and easy. next step – surgery. EEK”
I’m fitting my DD sports bra perfectly now the swelling’s gone – it was somewhat tight before
Hi Clareeee, Im having my BA done with helena on 16th April. It good to no that you are really happy with her any your results. Where did you hav yours done? I think im having 380 unders but haven’t decided for def. Im 5ft5 size 8 and currently 34a/b? I want to be a D. I hope Helena makes me as happy as she’s made you. Have you got any davice on size? do you think i may need 410? Thanks xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I’m starting to understand what other ladies say about implants looking a bit smaller but at the same time I’m waiting to see how they look in a proper bra because all I have to go on at hte mo is the sports bra and let’s face it, they suck. hahahaa
I think you’ll have a lovely proportion if you get 380s – what you also need to remember is that you have to get clothes that will fit etc still and I’m already having issues with my size 10/12 clothes and coats fitting across the chest Amazing really but a great feeling! Plus, if you go too big then the added weight (which is noticeable sometimes) will pull on your back. Go with your gut feeling about what size you want to be. I was looking for DD bras in Marks and Sparks tother day actually and found only 1 *omg* whereas there were plenty of Ds. oh dear, this could be interesting…
hehe i bet it feels strange (in a good way) that some of your clothes are too tight!!! i think i’ll go with 380. how many weeks post op are you? are you on sofem?? xxx
I’m 5 weeks post op, going for my 6 week check up next week. I’m on Sofem yeah, same username if you wanna find me. Look for the “cold boobs” thread if you wanna find me quickly, it’s on page 1 at the mo
