Hi suziejay,

Yep I'm going to the one in Wicklow! :) Super excited! Are you looking forward to yours? Do let me know what CC you've ended up choosing when you find out! :)

That's exactly how I feel about mine, I don't want them really obvious but at the same time with the amount of money it's going to cost I said I might as well go a little bigger! Hoping they're not really obvious though (I've only ever worn push up bras so maybe they won't look too obvious) as I don't really fancy co-workers asking me about them in work.. But yeah, think I'll go with the 345CC! Thank you for your answer!

Hi Michelle 

I'm booked for 21st Feb!! :) I need to ring the clinic again and check the CC that i'm going for as I was too concerned with how they looked to remember numbers!! I'm going to parkwest. I presume yours is Wicklow if you did the 3D scanning?

I'm a 34A too and I didnt want them to look too big as I've never had boobs so didn't want them really obvious.. but my surgeon said he wouldn't go any smaller than the ones I tried on as he needed to adhere to surgical rules e.g keeping two centimetres in the centre and they wouldnt look right if they were any smaller

I've spoken to a few people who have said the procedure and a lot of them say if you're between sizes, go for the bigger one!! One person I spoke to said if she was back again she would go a small bit bigger and that seems to be the feeling on the sites that i'm reading. If there isnt much difference i would say 100% go for the bigger one!! How are you feeling about it? :)

Hey everyone!

I have my surgery booked for the 19th of February (so excited!!!) but I've still yet to choose between two sizes.. 

The doc has advised me to go with either 300CC or 345CC and I honestly don't know what to do! I keep looking up pictures & videos of what people look like with either of the two sizes but obviously everyone looks so different so I don't know what mine would turn out like! 

I did the 3D scan and there's not much in the size difference in the scan that I can see.. So I'm kind of leaning towards the bigger size? I'm barely a 32/34A right now so I feel as though I'd rather that I went a little bit too big than too small as I basically have nothing now! But then I think but what if it's way too big!? 

Doc said 345CC would get me to a full C cup/small D. So confused as to what to choose.. Any opinions!?

Saline isn't very common anymore, as the new cohesive gels are very natural feeling and much safer than the old ones. Did you see the number I posted below? He's quite open to patients suggestions for themselves. I went under the muscle, recovery was a solid 4 days of discomfort. Not pain. Good luck!

Just for the first few days. I took it reeeeeally easy for the first week, because I went under the muscle. I hope you can find the same surgeon and meet with him. I'd been to several cinsultations, but he was the one I felt most confident with. Please do your research and be sure of what it is you Do and Do Not want. There is a website called "real self" that I've found super informative.

wishing you the very best. RK

Hey there!! I know I can't be too specific but look for the consultant plastic surgeon with a clinic in Ranelagh. I'm not allowed to mention specific names I know, but you should be able to find him. He's on the irish board of plastic surgeons and he is fantastic!!!

Had my first consultation this week!!! went well, I'm very excited!! have one in kildare in another two weeks then I will make a decision. I'm so excited. . I want it done now :) tried on a few different sizes with my clothes, it was so nice to have a bust for for once - instantly felt more confident and more in proportion. he recommended over the muscle which I was happy about as have heard recovery is quicker? don't know how true that is! will wait and see what they say in kildare. looking at February for op.

decided not to go with wicklow clinic, found them a bit pushy!!!

Hi Ruth, 

yes I suggested it to my ps to consider going on it,as a lot of plastic surgeons are on it and the professional advice you receive back is excellent. So here's hoping he might.Im just sorry I didn't have the courage years ago to follow through on what I wanted. Never to late as they say.

I think I know the clinic you are talking about... I would love to go ahead with the procedure but just cant afford it at the moment.

After research I had that clinic as my number 1 choice.

Looking forward to hear post op

I know who you mean Nayday, and I've heard good things about them too! I just looked for someone who was IAPS certified because I'm a scaredy cat (even though that probably makes no difference really)....

im booked for nov 30...

Ladies I don't know the Wicklow clinic but I attended a clinic in Dublin who also have there clinic in Kilkenny . I had two procedures done in August and I'm more than happy with there service and aftercare.

So! I backed out of the clinic I was looking at even though the docs they are (currently) using are hugely qualified. Something about the staff, etc really put me off.

im going to have mine done with another clinic.

I feel he is WELL WORTH the consultation. He has 3d vectra imaging and the place is gorgeous. He's not pushy and carries out the procedure at very well known hospital in Dublin. Hope this helps!!! Good luck!!

after years of being unhappy and self conscious about my lack of! 

I'm at the stage of booking consultations now.. how do u know which clinic to go for? one in Wicklow I hear mixed reviews as it's not technically a hospital.. another which I have been in contact with have clinics in Cork and also dublin so am looking at those as they work with private hospitals and have registered general nurses involved

how long after consultations did ye actually have he surgery? this is something I will literally jsut tell boyfriend and immediate family about so interested to hear if others have noticed yours??!!

Thanks redred! I'm sure we are talking about the same place. Once or twice a month they have free consults in another city for girls who aren't close to Wicklow. 

Im glad to hear you liked the actual place because I found one staff member extremely pushy and a bit rude. But again the doc was amazing.

i have one more consult tomorrow in a Dublin clinic. They do the actual procedure in another clinic in Dublin, which is great. And it doesn't appear to cost more than the other place we are talking about. I should hopefully have my mind made up by then. DYING to stop think about it! 

Thanks again! X

Hi Rubykate,

Im hoping we are talking about the same place but the one i referring to is in Co.Wicklow I didnt know they had a different place for consultations also.

But I have know a girl who recently got done there and would highly recommend it, she did say she recieved alot of phone calls before and after,

I have been for a consultation there and to another place in D2 that do the surgery in a different location in Co.meath to which theyve also came recommended to me by a friend, it was just I got a better vibe in the Co.Wicklow one (personally) I also am opting for Tear drop but the price jumped 900 euro with them.  

I have been researching the aftercare of both and Im non the less wiser on it the seem to be offering the same as per my friend whom got it done 3 years ago in the Co.meath location she cannot speak highly enough of her after care still to this day.

Hi M, 

i had mine over the muscle as I had lost the volume because of pregnancy. My St suggested over the muscle for a more natural look and I had enough tissue . Best of luck with whatever decision you make.

my last post was meant to explain that I met the doc from Wicklow, but not actually in Wicklow. ( they have another consultation room elsewhere.) So I've never actually set eyes on the place. I really liked the doc tho.

do u know anyone who's had them done there recently?

they do soooo many, so I don't know why I'm scared now, but I planning on getting teardrops, under the muscle, so it has to be pretty perfect to work! 

They are NOT a hospital, so that's a bit freaky. And really the only bad thing I can gauge about them is the aftercare isn't (hasn't been in the past) too great.

but I'm wondering if now they've stepped up their game!?

LOVE to hear from anyone who's had their breasts done there recently....

 Thank you!! X

Thank u for replying Redred!!

I had my consult elsewhere and the doc seemed REALLY QUALIFIED. It's just something about the clinics history, and honestly the pushiness of some of the staff that have me second guessing the place itself.

its hard to trust the "great reviews" on their own website!

but again, the doc I met with seemed hugely qulified!

Did you visit the actual clinic? Did it seem OK?

Thanks for replying Naydy. She just said she doesn't do the procedure. I have one but it doesn't Annoy me too much, it will come out if pushed.  Another place told me the best thing to do was to get a piercing lol 

Hope u are healing well.

Hi Bervous Dolly, inverted nipple I cannot even believe I'm saying the word out loud, I have been embarrassed all my life with them and they made me so self conscious, my ps had to do surgery on mine he done both on the day of my BA because it was cheaper to do it that way, the fact I'm finished having children my procedure will hopefully be 100% as all my ducts were cut, I have yet to see them yet as I'm still covered up, but I am super excited to see more so than my BA. Why did your PS not want to do yours?

Hi Naydy

thats great u are too sore. I'm just over 6 months post op, I hated the first month to 2 months til they felt part of me but it's like I got them years ago or wouldn't even notice that I got them done.

Do u mind if I ask how they corrected ur inverted nipple. My surgeon said they couldn't do it. It doesn't annoyed me too much but would love to know if u didn't mind.
