  1. best of luck, haven't been on the forum for ages, but just wanted to say you're in good hands! had mine sept last year, and doing great chacha
  2. Hi there, had my BA and lower eyes done by Dr Piyapas last Sept, and couldn't be happier. My eyes look fanstatic, took 10 years off me as least (had it done under general though as was done at the same time as my BA), and BA is brilliant too. Think the upper eye surgery is quite a simple proceedure but def worth getting an experienced and good surgeon. A girl called Justright on the forum had her upper eyes done by him last year and was very happy, you might be able to do a search on her? Bangkok Hospital Phuket is amazing, and they really took care of me. You can stay anywhere in Phuket and they will pick you up (and return you) for all appointments, and to and from the airport! Good luck, hope you get the perfect wedding anniversary holiday. cheers chacha
  3. Hi, I also had the pelvic instability (2nd preg...not quite using a frame, but prob should have!), muscle separation from large babies, and bad back compressing nerves with numb patches etc! Had a TT as a last resort, and would say it has helped somewhere between 50-75%, especially after 6 months when I could then start doing pilates. My surgeon didn't promise it would def help, but suspected it would....which was good enough for me.....I just wanted to be able to sleep the night through without waking multiple times in agony. I still do get some pain, no where near as bad, and i still have to be careful....sometimes over do it gardening or lifting and then pay for it, but I am really happy with the improvement. Hope you get some needed relief soon cheers
  4. Congrates Nicnac!!! You will love them rest up and recover chacha
  5. I had one slower to drop than the other, so started taking 2000mg vit e (after reading it may help....though prob not best to stay on it forever but a few month wont hurt) taking 1000mg twice daily. Also I massaged very vigoursly to help the muscles loosen off, several times a day. This is a technique I felt helped....say I'm massaging the left breast, I use the palm of my right to flatten the breast, then I bring the left hand over the right and grip onto my right upper arm (like hugging myself) and use the upper part of my left arm to add some more 'squash down' and hold it there for a while. Hope this makes sense....but I really felt this and lots of firm massage in combination with the vit e did the trick. Hope it may help....give it a few weeks. Otherwise I think I would start to worry that there may be cc starting to happen. cheers chacha
  6. Hi, I stayed at the Mariott north of the airport - miles away, almost not even in Phuket.....still had a driver pick me up and take me back! Think it was around 45- 50 min taxi drive, so closer would be better, but I must say it was lovely and very quiet if you want that. chacha
  7. HI there, sorry you've got this horrible rash. I've had a drug rash before, and it sounded very similar to what you are experiencing. Mine is to morhpine, it was all over me, starting from my hands, then quickly spreading over a few days. I cannot take any meds now with morphine, no codine either (which is derived from morphine). I also had a family memeber who has since had the same this happen after an op, but it was worse and blistered and took about a month to settle, plus had to have steriods to calm it down. Good luck, hope you get some relief soon.....I know how dreadful it feels chacha
  8. Hi there, it's Mark.an@bgh.co.th good luck with your enquires chacha
  9. Also in regards to stitches (as it was mentioned on here about having them removed 10 days post), each surgeon has their own method, mine had internal disolvable stiches, so none to be removed. I did how ever have some spitting stiches at around 6 weeks with my BA, but also had the same with some stiches on my TT done in Australia (I think it depends on the person and how you body reacts rather than how the stiching is done) What it really comes down to, is can you accept the risk involved and minimal after care once you return? (If you stay a couple of weeks you'll get some check ups to make sure all is ok....the longer you stay the better really) It's not a decision to take lightly, and it's worth considering there are risks in having surgery anywhere, so researching your surgeon is all important cheers chacha
  10. Hi, I had Dr Piyapas too, and second everything Maz has said, regarding saving, risk and going with your gut feeling. I had a terrific time and am thrilled. Yes he does use drains, and from my understanding, I'd say most girls on here have had them (perhaps not those with brazilians...??) From what I have read removing the build up of fluid is possibly one of the factors in reducing the risk of cc. Also I have 2 different implant sizes, and profile, as there was asymmetry in tissue, nipple position and I had a dip in the chest wall on one side (nightmare LOL!). Dr Piyapas is a perfectionist, and he immediately knew I needed 50cc difference before measuring me up (I already knew though through trying the rice sizers many, many times LOL)......he has a good eye for detail. Anyhow, good luck with making your decision. I'll send you a FR....though my pics aren't that recent (and TT was done in Oz) cheers chacha
  11. So sorry to hear this news, bellabelly, hope you get some relief soon....sounds like physio is taking good care of you. chacha
  12. Hi girls, congrates on your TT's.....brilliant to look down at your new tummy Re standing straight, I found walking (recommended by my surgeon from day 3! (a little at a time, but building it up) helped a lot, good to go with free arms, ie no holding hands of little ones, or shoulder bags, so you can really swing them and stand tall.....even if you are going at a snails pace! While you walk and breath, you can practise the peliv floor exercises (if you've had kids you'll know the ones!) and that will help engage those muscles and start the strengthening of the abdominals. I was recommended by my surgeon I could start gentle exercise after my 6 week post op check, but obviously is very gradual getting back into it. At around 6 months I started pilates, and that's when I found the biggest improvement in my posture. Hang in there, time does drag a bit when you are 'incompacitated' but it wont be for long, and you'll love the end result!! cheers chacha
  13. Thanks so much Maz1980, sounds like you're doing very well!! Looking forward to seeing your pics when the come
  14. Congrates on the weight loss, and great you don't need the TT If you are confident in organising your flight/accommodation, you could just book straight through the hospital? You prob wont need to show a copy of your passport until you arrive.....well that's how it worked for me when I went direct through Bangkok Hospital Phuket up the road. Lois1964, see http://www.plasticsurgeryforum.com.au/forums/showthread.php?13886-Lois-BA-journey-with-Dr-Boonchai-PIAC&highlight=lois went through the same surgeon, you may want to chat with her if you're interested in doing it without the agency aid. cheers chacha
  15. Great to hear all has gone well, you're doing we'll to be writing! I recall barely being able to speak let alone type LOL! Take care and rest up, hope you get a good nights sleep Chacha
