How exciting!!

I had mine done 6 months ago, best thing I ever did!

Tell me about yours, what are you having? Who's doing them?

Petallic Wed 22-Oct-14 22:14:43

Mine are old now - 16 years (fuck that IS a long time ago!) and they're still going strong. Ask for painkillers before they take your drains out - that's the stingy bit.

I remember feeling exactly like that 6 years ago when I had mine done. I've never looked back. Good luck!

Congrats enjoy your new boobs!

Mine are 9 years old! I had under the muscle as I had nothing before couldn't even fill a A-cup now a lovely round 32D!

Only thing I found I had a little discomfort with was the removal of the drains....that stung!

MargotThreadbetter Thu 23-Oct-14 00:35:14

I had mine done about 4 years ago and love them. I'd lost around 3 stone and went from a D cup to an A, which on my frame looked daft. So I had them put back.
Shame I put the weight back on though
I had over muscle and don't remember any pain, only mild discomfort.
I've since had a baby and they've sagged a bit and definitely look more natural now!
Be prepared to spend a small fortune on new undies! winkgrin

I had mine done 7 years ago and I've never looked back. I went from an A cup to a D cup, they're totally in proportion to my frame and you'd never guess they weren't 'home grown.'

I didn't have any drains put it. I wouldn't say it was painful, but 'sore' is a better word.

Good luck!

SnookyPooky Thu 23-Oct-14 19:22:23

Yes, 9 years ago. Not one regret. Still look as good.

bouquetdiva Thu 23-Oct-14 20:21:48

Yes, 12 years and have been very happy with them ever since. The best thing has been being able to wear any top and it looks good! Avoid speed humps on the way home!!

BotoxBitch Thu 23-Oct-14 21:59:25

Aw thanks everyone, I am having unders, 310cc, mentors by J&J, John Murphy is doing them at Spire in Manchester grin I'm a very empty A after feeding the kids, hoping for an ample C.... Any advice ladies. How did you manage after?

pockledigg Fri 24-Oct-14 05:58:55

I had mine done 17 years ago-still fine. I had a splendid pair of Spaniel Ears then, so I dread to think what they'd look like now (steam-rollered tights?)!
Best 3K I ever spent. Went from A-to D. No drains but my whole chest area was very, very sore afterwards (obviously), just be prepared (I wasn't). Well worth it. And don't be surprised post op-the swelling will go down!

needssomesun Fri 24-Oct-14 11:44:34

I had 295 unders, so similar to you. I went from an A to a DD/E, they really don't look big though.

I can't lie, it was fairly painful afterwards for a few days and then sore for another week or so but I managed fine with ibuprofen. Do you have some help organised at home for a while?

bouquetdiva Sat 25-Oct-14 22:38:16

It was sore for a couple of weeks, but not too bad. I read that it is a good idea to move anything you will need in the kitchen to a shelf that is easy to reach, as you will not want to be stretching upwards. That really helped.

Best of luck and let us know how you get on!

BotoxBitch Wed 29-Oct-14 06:14:36

All done, so bloody sore

KateSpade Wed 29-Oct-14 08:30:40

Can I ask a slightly rude question...

Did you go for finance options or pay for it in cash?

I've been wanting mine done but am bothering about the interest vs using all my savings!

Hope your feeling okay/that they look perfect!

BotoxBitch Wed 29-Oct-14 21:04:33

I paid cash (got it abit cheaper doing this) but they do 0% finance here.... X

Clarabumps Wed 29-Oct-14 22:01:51

how are you feeling OP? I really want mine done but I want to lose a good bit of weight first then possible get them uplifted.

BotoxBitch Thu 30-Oct-14 08:00:57

Loads better today, stayed in an extra night to get my pain under control. So glad they did wouldn't of been able to cope on paracetamol and codeine last night.

mulberrybag Thu 13-Nov-14 21:24:48

how're you doing botoxbitch am thinking of getting mine done at some point similar to you have nothing apart from skin after feeding 2kids and just wondered if you are happy with what you've had done & if you'd recommend still going thro the process. also can I be really cheeky and ask how much yours were ? thank you cake

KissMyFatArse Thu 13-Nov-14 21:37:25

How are you feeling now? Ladies on the thread who have had them done, can I ask do they need 're-done' after a number of years or will they last indefinitely?

Daria01 Thu 13-Nov-14 22:02:20

I've always wanted to get mine done - even more so now after having DS!

How often do you need to have them 're-done'?
0% finance sounds v appealing. Think I need to get a mortgage sorted first (priorities sad).

BotoxBitch Sat 15-Nov-14 22:40:37

Sorry about late response.

Feeling much better now, 18 days down the line I can pick up kids and get on with things again. Pain is still present though, not took painkillers since about day 5 during day but do need some relief at night to get comfy and sleep still very disturbed.

I love them, honestly I don't regret doing it one little bit, my only complaint is that they are not big enough. I wanted a D and don't think that's been achieved. hmm

Cost at Spire where I had it done was £4300 x

All have a lifetime guarantee against rupture so no need to change unless they sag and you need an uplift which of course you don't need to do
