  1. Hi kpc_68, how did your Tummy Tuck goes with Dr Poomee ? would you be able to advise on the post operation recovery ? 

  2. Leaving FR because i have BA with Dr Poomee!

  3. 10 days post op from full abdominoplasty with lipo at Bumrungrad Hospital Thailand...with Dr Poomee... happy to post pics if requested. BTW: all is good, healing well...was back into the swing of things a wk later. K
  4. Hi EK989, You may have had your surgery by now! I'm sure you are pleased with your excellent choice of surgeon...and the results. Hope your recovery is smoothe and you attack Chatachuk markets asap! IHappy healing. K
  5. Hi, Dr Poomee is board certified. He was the surgeon who performed my BA a year ago - never a problem before, during or after and love the results. I am booked for abdominoplasty and lip in a few days time with Dr Poomee - a little scared about the recovery for this one! no reservations about the surgery or care...just the recovery...
  6. Hi Sophie, Not sure why only one photo is loading - sorry about that...just had a look myself (as I don't usually go on this forum unless I get a notice of a message). Looks like the actual album for Dr Poomee's work isn't there...so will have to sort that out asap. Yes, re changed: dropped to form a nice rounded underboob / crease...Incision scars - invisible...profile is a good shape too. Still happy :-) K

  7. I've had an augmentation done in Thailand (Bumrungrad in bangkok with the talented Dr Amorn Poomee). My husband and I are returning this July for some lipo..I'm going to go for the abdominoplasty + lipo - my personal choice. if anyone makes a negative comment about Thailand..just point them in the direction of the charlatans and dodgy practitioners in your own country - can't speak more highly of the care, post and pre op attention and everything else with my own experience in Thailand. go for it. k
  8. Wow Kerry! I'm still quite used to this forum but have just found the album you put up, altho it's only loading the first pic (prob my phone) looks amazing from what I can c on the first pic! U must b soooo pleased! Have they changed much since? Sophie x

  9. Hi again! ooh, Bromelain...I don't even know what that is - so will google it!....you're clearly more prepared than I was!! ha Oh, yes, of course. The implants come with a card/sticker thing which has all information on it - batch #, manufacture date, brand, type, size and other specs..so don't worry - that will be part of your post op meeting thing. I did forget to mention that he uses dissolving stitches - so no need for post op removal...when I went - I'd planned for the full week afterward in Thailand, but needed to get back home after 4 days, so I asked Dr Poomee if it was fine for me to get the stitches removed by any GP...he just looked at me with confusion like I should have known the stitches were not the usual type...anyway - I left thailand 4 days after surgery. The incisions are only about 5cm each side - and perfectly hidden in the crease. I was a bit worried about keloid scarring - as it does run in my family...but none to report!...scars are flat, barely there and healed without a hitch. 9 days - super excited for you! I think the absolute worst part of the experience was standing in Poomee's flouro lit office having to take my top off for the first consultation...think I died a bit inside!!! You'll be totally fine! K
  10. Hi again, Not a silly question - quite a good one really! I also wondered the same thing as I flew home to Vietnam 4 days after surgery...I was worried about air pressure and did a lot of googling and asking Dr Poomee. Not at all - you won't feel discomfort after a week - nor did I after the few days. I was expecting to have to have stitches out, but Poomee uses disolving ones. I did feel a bit weird going over bumps in the car once home and back to work 2 wks later...not painful, just odd...and I just put my arm across my chest and held them in place :-)... completely nothing now 2 and a bit months later.. scars completely flat and only light pinkish, sitting well, bobbing up and down like you'd expect and all good! If you can get it before you go - get yourself some of the silicon strip sticky bandage stuff...it;s a clear, stretchy adhesive silicon sheeting - ask at any pharmacy at home. You can get it from a few places in Bangkok...but its actually a rip off there!! I can't remember the name of it, but if you email Dr Poomee, he will be able to tell you the name of it in bangkok,...alternatively, ask for what I described and you'll be sure to get it easy in Aus. Just tell them it's for a surgery scar afterwards....its a godsend! all you do is cut small strips to put over your scar under your bra - it helps with scar healing. Best of luck and enjoy the journey! you'll be chuffed you did it. K
  11. Oh, I forgot to say: buy any sports bra you like at home - before coming to Bangkok. On day 2 post op - I bought some from a high end dept store - because even tho the hospital gives you one...in comparison to sports bra's out there...it's a nanna bra! kind of ugly, but comfy..and pokes out of the top of anything you wear.. Get yourself any good quality sports bras in a bunch of colours that you don't mind wearing as an underneath thing - do up at the back, front or side - matters little...just as long as they are well fitting (buy a larger one that you would normally - I went for XL) and make sure it has no padding, wires or hard bits anywhere....and you'll be fine! Best of luckx
  12. Hi there Ellie_1989, Yes, the costs include the post op bra / elastic band thingy / post op meds / post op follow-up and the post op sense of feeling and knowing 'I did the right thing with the right people'! Honestly - if I could go through this again - I'd not hesitate! a word of advice - (even though I'm super happy with how I am looking now) - I should have gone a few CC's bigger! I opted for 325CC - but in retrospect I'd actually have liked to do the 350CC. I'm not sure what you're pre-op size or body thing is - but because I went behind the muscle (and have wide hips) - you do tend to lose a bit of size - compared to what it looks like in your 'try on size bra'...I know that at the 'end of my time' - around 6 months (I am merely 2 months post op now) my size will have increased a little due to the muscle relaxing and the dropping yadda yadda yadda... I've honestly not had any issues post op and forget that I have fake ones - until i get a message from this site! My scars are non-existant and I'm usually a keloid scarrer - I've had many small nicks and cuts over the years and the scars left from those operations are chunky and thick... best of luck and enjoy the ride! and most of all - enjoy the new you! and I hope you'll let me know how you got on. best regards, Kerry
  13. Oh, poor you - I know how devastatingly sad you must feel. I was told the day before surgery by the surgeon and the aneasthetist that they may not perform the surgery on me as I have hypertension. I died inside for a moment. I took blood pressure tablets and went back to the cardiologist the next day who cleared me for surgery - but even lying on the bed in the pre-op room I had the aneasthetist come and tell me that the likliehood of my dying on the operating table was a hell of a lot higher than most and still weren't happy to go ahead. they left me alone with my thoughts and fears for about an hour and I had to decide whether to go ahead and risk it. I was thinking - well, at least they care about the well being of the patient! Anyway - long story short - cried over perhaps leaving my husband and children for such a selfish reason and then just blurted out - yes, I'll take the chance..signed some additional waiver papers and that made me feel even more scared... worse thing - i had no way of contacting my husband and made a selfish decision alone - don't think I'll ever tell him this... I know someone in Bris with a rare blood disease and she was told she could never have her own children - it would kill her during birth. I hope you find the courage and the surgeon you need to get you through this. K
  14. getting out of bed can hurt - but the pain is more a big, wide, chest muscle pain and not shooting or sharp. i had help while in hospital the night I stayed and had no pain or problems holding a nurses arm or my husbands... and grabbing the hell out of it to pull myself out of bed....there were a couple of times I didn't want to bother them and did it alone...yes it hurt - but it's like childbirth - breathe through it in short breaths and voila - your up! I did cry one tho and thought whoa - ow! I think its different for every person - as someone previously said - it depends on the person, their threshold to pain and the mental state they are in... Next time (if there is one) - I'll definately work on core strength as someone else said. It really isn't that bad after the initial night in hospital, so you should be ok to wriggle into a comfy position on the end of the bed and use your legs as pivots...make sure you are well padded in pillows behind your back and that helps.
