  1. Hi girls, I know I have been MIA for months - actually ever since I got my surgery - and have started to feel guilty that I used to always be looking for other people's experiences yet I never bothered to post my own to help others. Especially since I couldn't find too many of Dr. Witoon - so this might be a bit detailed... Stats: Implants - Mentor Round Smooth 425cc Pre op - not even an A Post op - 10E Firstly, I booked directly through the hospital and went over with my mum. I got messed about with my surgery date - it was originally supposed to be on the 23rd Jan, but ended up being moved to the 28th as Dr. Witoon was supposed to be flying somewhere to perform clef lip surgery on children (he also works for the red cross). This meant I had to push back my holiday. Anyway, after being in Bangkok for 5 days over the riots, I flew out to Phuket on the night of the 22nd Jan. Arrived at Banthai Beach Resort at around 10pm - and as I was checking in a staff member told me I have a message from my surgeon & I had to contact him on his mobile phone immediately. They sat me in the waiting room & gave me a mobile phone to call off. My heart was racing, I had never felt so nervous before. Dr. Witoon explained to me that he could do my surgery in the morning (23rd) - or I could have it on the 28th which is when it was now scheduled for. He gave me an hour to chat to my mum & asked me to call him at 11pm. As soon as I heard his voice over the phone I felt super calm for some strange reason... He just completely eased my nerves. Mum thought it would be a good idea to get it the next morning, as I wouldn't have time to stress myself out & also if there was any problems I'd have longer in Phuket to recover. I called him at 11pm telling him to go ahead, once again him making me feel super calm - and he told me a car would be there to pick me up in the morning. I couldn't believe he was willing to stay up and give me his personal mobile number to contact him on. The morning came and I was so surprised that I actually had a really great sleep. I usually overthink everything and freak myself out, but I was just so calm. He had told me to wash my hair the night before & have a shower that morning - and then the car was there to pick me up before I knew it. All the staff & nurses at the hospital were absolutely incredible. I had a room called the presidential suite (because they had inconvenienced me by changing my date) which was absolutely incredible! (http://www.phukethospital.com/Hospital-Room/Wards-3A-President.php) I and my own bathroom & TV and my mum had her own area & bed and TV as well! We also had our own outdoor area which was awesome. I had all my tests and was relaxing in my room for hours, as there was one surgery before me. My consult went great & I absolutely loved Dr. Witoon, I ended up choosing 425cc, under the muscle - endoscopic with incisions under the armpit. I also got to meet with my anaesthesiologist as I had told them how nervous I was to be put under - and he completely calmed my nerves as well. At one stage a nurse came in to check on my drip & I was so nervous that it was my turn I felt like I was going to die of nervousness - my heart was beating so hard and loud and I was shaking. Finally my turn came around, but I was surprisingly calm, which was a real shock to me! I said goodbye to my mum and they wheeled me to the theatre. Lying on the bed in the operating room was such a scary time - seeing all those people around me knowing I was about to be put under, but it was fine. I woke up in recovery gasping for air - I felt like I couldn't breathe. The nurse ran straight over and began talking to me, telling me I was okay and to just breathe. I remember her telling me I could go back to my room in 45 mins. I remember just lying there staring between her and the clock, not lifting my head up at all - she probably thought I was a creep! She came over every now and then telling me how long I had until I could go back to my room. I got wheeled to my room & got to see my mum. I was in and out of it all late afternoon/night. I have so many piercings including my tongue and others in my ears - and I managed to get them all in by myself - mum couldn't believe it as I usually can't even do them all when I'm sober haha. I also remember taking a snapchat of my bandaged boobs & remember mum asking if I was sure I wanted to send it haha. I got a few hot sweats & mum put a cold flannel on my face which helped a lot! I had a pretty good sleep, got myself up to go to the bathroom and wheeled my drip and drains all by myself as my mum was asleep and couldn't hear me yelling out her name (thats how big the room was!). Nurses came in every now and then to do their checks on me. I also had a call button next to my bed - and no joke if I pressed it literally 2-4 nurses would run into my room making sure I was okay. The next morning I was great. I got wheeled down for my post op with Dr Witoon where I met a lovely lady & her husband who had been the one who had surgery just before me with Dr Witoon (she was also staying in the other presidential suite). We actually ended up really great friends with her family and two kids who were from Sydney - and hung out with them for the rest of our trip. During my post op, one of my drains got stuck - making it really hard to pull out. The right was fine but the left was such a weird feeling, I went whiter than I was after surgery and almost passed out - but I was fine. After that, I waited in the waiting room with the other lady and my mum and decided I wanted to be sick - they got me a bag but I couldn't really vomit, I just felt like I had to because of the pain of the drain getting stuck. I felt pretty nauseous but kept asking for an anti nausea injection until they gave it to me (the other lady told me she had one and it was the best). Anyway after going back to my room, mum needed to go and get the other lady a coke so I actually went for a walk with her to the cafe at the hospital. It was hard but I did it and was so glad I did! I got discharged in the afternoon and shared a car with the other lady. That afternoon I was up and about walking around the streets of Patong. It was hard but Dr Witoon had told me I can't be bedridden as that would not help me at all. I had two post op check ups with Dr Witoon before leaving Patong a week and a half after my surgery. I had the best experience - I wouldn't change it for the world. I'm so happy I did it and I am extremely happy I went with Dr Witoon. He is such a great surgeon with great credentials! I bruise so easily and am usually covered in bruises on my arms, hips and legs for no apparent reason - and mum and I both thought I'd be black and blue from my collar bones to my belly button. No joke I had ONE tiny bruise - maybe the size of a 10c coin, on the left side of my ribs.... I could not believe it. To me that just proved how great of a surgeon Dr Witoon was. In regards to my scars - at first they looked so horrible! They freaked me out just to look at and every time I saw them for the first couple of days after my dressings were off I felt nauseous. Almost 4 months on they look incredible! They are still a little red but I know they are fading less and less with each passing day!! If anyone wants pictures I have some, just ask I don't have one complaint from my whole experience. When I had any queries I could give Witoon a call on his mobile phone and he would answer straight away, or he would reply to an email so quickly. It sounds silly but I actually miss the staff and the hospital and the whole experience! I know this is so long and probably so boring - but even if it helps one person I'm happy - especially for those looking for information on Dr Witoon, as I found it so hard to find much on him.. I am now seriously considering going back to get rhinoplasty with Dr Witoon sometime next year (I have always wanted it). I have already been in contact with him and will book later this year (I'm going to Europe for 8 weeks in September with my best friend, otherwise I'd be going to get my surgery now!), so if anyone has any rhinoplasty experiences I'd love to hear them! Thanks for reading if you got this far - and if anyone has any questions at all about anything don't hesitate to ask me! I'd love to help anyone out. Samantha xx
  2. Hi Ladies, I had surgery for my BA in Phuket and this is my (very long) review of Bangkok Hospital Phuket, the staff and Dr. Piyapas, I wanted to go into as much detail as possible for all the girls wanting to know what the hospital and surgery is like. So Thursday night I arrived in Phuket and was picked up by the hospital ground staff and dropped off at my hotel. It was so nice not needing to worry about a taxi! Friday morning I was picked up from my hotel. At the hospital, I got bloods, X-ray and a few other tests done to make sure I was ok for surgery. The staff were really friendly and nice. I met with Dr. Piyapas for a consultation and omg, it was SO much better than my consult in Australia! In Australia, I’m sure the surgeon was just giving me bias information so I would go with his preferred method. But Dr. P explained everything to me, he explained why he recommended certain methods over others. Without saying much we both agreed on breast fold incision, my reasons for breast fold was, I didn't want to compromise the implant by squeezing it through the small nipple incision (which is what I originally wanted). He said he would do dual plane placement, so subpectular, I didn't question why because I already had looked into this placement and it was my preferred choice. He said High Profile because my breast diameter is small, he also explained that 'double bubble' could occur with me since my breast fold is very tight, so he didn't want to go over 350cc cause he didn't want to risk double bubble (I was happy when he said this cause that's about the size that I was wanting! The Australia surgeon didn’t want to go over 240cc!). My boobs were different as well, the left one had more mass, it was bigger, but it was also flatter, whereas my right one was smaller but perkier and stuck out more. Lol what the heck right! Anyway so he said he would most likely put 350cc in the left and 375cc in the right to try and even them out, but he will make a final decision in theater. I know they won't be perfect and completely symmetrical but hopefully it's an improvement on the size difference post-op! (The difference was really noticeable to me when I wore bras!) He took before photos of my breasts then I put on a sports bra and he gave me the 350cc for the one side and 375cc for the other side to see what my size would roughly be. Once we were both happy he drew surgical lines over my chest and made measurements. After my consult I was taken to the Cashier and paid 125,000 Thai Baht using my Commonwealth Travel Money card. I was then taken up to my room to wait for my surgery. I had to take EVERYTHING off and put on a hospital gown, I still don't know why I had to take my knickers off! The nurse then put in an IV drip. I just hopped into bed and read (The girl with the dragon tattoo, it's pretty good!). Now I want you guys to know that up until this stage, I wasn't nervous or scared or anything, I was very calm with brief moments of excitement to get my new boobies! Then they came in with this strange looking wheelchair, as soon as I hoped on it, I got really, really cold and started shivering. The nurse asked what was wrong and I fibbed, just said it was chilly. I know it was from nerves lol, trying not to have a panic attack since I seem to get them sometimes. Then we were off! Wheeling me to the operating room, I was constantly pushing back in to the chair, I didn't want to go, I just couldn't help it! We arrived at the operating prep area and to be honest I had some issues. When we arrived, there was a delivery guy in there dropping off a box, I assumed it was my implants but who knows??! As I was getting on to the operating bed, a girl and her friend came in. I found it annoying because you're not wearing anything under this gown and one small slip and they will see everything. It didn't set me at ease!! As the nurses were getting me ready they were gossiping and giggling and that behaviour was perfect! It calmed me down so much, they weren't worried or concerned or anything, this was obviously a routine procedure for them, it made me feel much more comfortable. They wheeled me into the operating room and as they were getting everything ready, the doors were still open and another patient came up to the door in her gown and was looking in at me, that really pissed me off! I'm not a show, I'm about to have surgery for goodness sake! So I glared at the lady and tried to gesture at her to tell her to P OFF, the nurses saw what I was looking at and closed the doors. I just don't think all these people should be allowed to come and go as they please.. I know it's nothing major but I was not in a good frame of mind at the time haha. Then one of the nurses was untying my gown to pull it down ready for surgery, I don't know how she did it but she confused herself and got my drip line all tangled in the gown sleeve and she couldn't figure out how to detangle it! Then the line came disconnected from the bottle of liquid and I got drenched! Haha it definitely didn't install any faith in me, I just hoped she was only there to watch haha. Then Dr. P came over, he asked if I was ready and held my hand (I couldn't answer, I was panicking too much), they gently held the gas mask just above my mouth and I was so terrified that I almost started crying! They didn't notice anything cause I was trying my best to hide it cause I know I was just being silly! Next thing I know, everything is blurry and I can't really see anything or understand what's being said, then I heard Dr. P say surgery went well, I felt quite a bit of pain across my chest, I remembered what happened and asked "I have boobies now?" Haha that got a giggle out of the nurses and they said "you very beautiful, you very beautiful" so I took that as a good sign that my boobies turned out good! They took me to my room, said I could eat and drink now. I couldn't eat but had a few sips of water. Now this is where I had a few issues with my care. Woke up again in my room as a guy walked in with some food, I was like jackpot! Had a few pieces of watermelon, went back to sleep. A nurse came in to check me over and asked if I had been sick, confused I said I hadn't (at the time I didn't know that it was a common side effect from the anesthetic). I woke up and had some more food, only a couple spoonful’s of soup (which was delicious btw) and OH CRAP! I'm about to be sick, but I didn't know how to get up cause I had all these tubes coming out of me (IV line and the drainage tubes) and attached to all these different places on the bed. I urgently pushed the buzzer for help, she calls me on the speaker phone asking what was wrong but I couldn't answer cause when I opened my mouth I started coughing heaps, trying to keep it down. No one came in!!! I managed to get control of it and not be sick, but I still desperately needed to, so I buzzed again, she asked what was wrong, I got pee'd off that no one had come the first time cause I almost threw up all over myself so I snapped that I needed help. Oh and at this stage the machine next to me is beeping like crazy and driving me mental! Haha. She comes in to turn it off, I quickly say that I'm going to be sick, there was a communication barrier so it took a little bit for her to understand that I needed to throw up. I explained that I can't get up quickly cause of the tubes is there anything I can be sick in? She walks off and not to be rude but she took her time, I couldn't wait anymore and really didn't want to be sick on myself and the bed so I detangle myself from the bed and machines as quick as I could but I couldn't make it to the bathroom in time and threw up on the floor. Got to the bathroom to finish being sick, she walks in, I point at the floor and said I told you I was going to be sick! The cleaners came in and I caught one give the other a very judging look that seemed to say "who can't make it to the bathroom in time, how pathetic", the cleaner saw me watching and quickly looked away. I thought this was really bad! I didn't throw up on the floor on purpose, I was already very embarrassed and her judging me just made it worse! (Later on closer to my discharge time they gave me a form to fill out on my experience at the hospital and I noted down this incident so hopefully the cleaners will be talked to and have it explained to them, to not judge a sick person!) Anyway, I slept again, tried eating the rest of my food, which was salmon, mashed potato, carrot, a piece of broccoli and cauliflower but couldn't keep it down again but I had a container by my bed this time. Then I was just dosing on and off. The nurses offered me a sleeping tablet but I said no, I'll try and sleep on my own first. It was taking quite a bit for me to shake off the grogginess from the anesthetic. They came and checked me a few times during the night, doing tests on my blood pressure, pulse and temperature. ......... I ran out of characters, please see my comment below for the rest of my review
  3. Hey ladies, I had my BA on Wednesday with Dr Piyapas at Bangkok Hospital Phuket and got high profile 325 cc in my right and 350 in my left. In the consultation I told him I wanted 400 cc but he told me straight away that I didn't have enough skin for that size, so I was taken back when he gave me a 300cc implant to try on. He said that going that big could cause capsular contracture. I was a 12B cup and not sure what I am now, maybe a D? but theyre not as big as I had imagined they would be for so long. I get my bandages taken off tomorrow and will be able to finally see them but I'm currently disappointed with my result as they are only 3 days old I hope they look bigger as they drop and fluff. What I'm wondering is if they get much bigger once they drop a bit? I'm hoping they will protrude to the side more to align with my hips to give me more of an hourglass shape.
  4. I cannot decide who to go with for my BA. I am tossing PIAC's surgeons Dr. Veerawat and Boonchai around in my head but I have also heard from good things about Dr. Piyapas at Bangkok Hospital in Phuket. Any suggestions or recommendations? I live in Thailand so I know I want to stay here for the surgery but I just don't know what location or surgeon. Such a stressful decision to make. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
  5. Hi ladies, So im having Breast augmentation surgery on the 17th of november 2015, im sooooo excited, iv been waiting for this for about 5 years! Finnaly saved the money done my research and im going for it!! My surgeon is Dr Piyapas, im finding it hard to find before and after images of his work, i was wondering if there's any ladies out there who would share their before and after pictures with me? Also your experiences with either the surgeon or hospital and tips? Iv heard so many good things about this surgeon and hospital im very excited! Thanks ladies
  6. Good morning girls! I arrived in Phuket last night, ready for my BA with Dr Piyapas on the 12th (Thursday). So far everything has gone according to plan, except two people showed up at the airport with my name on their card! One from PIAC and one from BHP. I felt so bad for the girl from PIAC, as I cancelled my plans with Dr Boonchai sometime last year and decided to go with Piyapas instead. They replied saying everything has been cancelled, but turns out they didn't forward the message on. I do have to say though, that the PIAC rep, Nadia, who came to pick me up was represented so well. And she was so kind and understanding! The man from BHP was also very kind, and helpful. Did anyone tip their drivers? Next time I see him, I'm planning to. We arrived at the Hemingway Silk Hotel after a roughly 1 hour drive, and I am super pleased with the service and room here. It's also close to heaps of places. Today, I will be going to exchange cash to baht, in prep for my surgery tomorrow. I'll keep you guys updated through this thread
  7. Hi everyone, thought I would post a detailed entry on my experience so far with my BA and Dr Piyapas. Day 1 and 2: Got picked up at my hotel at 6:50 am for my 8am consult by one of the hospital’s drivers. I arrived at the hospital and was met by some polite ladies that organised all our registration, and got our details and copies of our passports. We were led up to the 5th floor where I had to fill out some paper work and then went to get my blood tests, x-rays, and heart readings done. Did a bit more waiting, then was called to see Dr Piyapas. Had very good first impression of Dr Piyapas; he was very warm and reassuring. Made me feel very comfortable taking my shirt off in front of a stranger haha! One of the first things he asked was what size I wanted to be, to which I said 10 C or D. He took my measurements and explained that he would need to lower my crease because there was not much distance between my nipple. He also said that he would try to put in the biggest implants he can fit for me, which he said will most likely be 300cc and if I am not happy with the size I will have to wait at least 6 months to let the skin stretch to make room for bigger implants. I was happy with his suggestions, and he thoroughly explained the risks if he put in implants that were any bigger. After the consult I think I was in the operating room within about 20 minutes. We went to the cashier, where I paid in cash. Then I dropped my belongings off to my hospital room, changed out of my clothing and into a hospital gown and was lead to the theatre. I was on the operating table around 10:15am (there was a clock) so the whole process didn’t take long at all, everything ran very smoothly. Dr Piyapas held my hand as a lady inserted a needle in my other. The last thing I remember was someone putting a oxygen mask over my head, I took a few breaths and I woke up in the recovery room. I had a very dry throat, asked for some water and the sizes that I got. The nurse said I got 275cc in one side and 300 cc in the other, which I was surprised about as there wasn’t any mention of asymmetry in the consult. I was wheeled to my hospital room and was not feeling good at all. The pain was mainly in my sides, where I imagined the drains and incisions to be. But otherwise, it was bearable, the worse thing was the nausea. Slept for most of my time there, but later that night I was throwing everything up - including water. I was very sore when I tried moving, and couldn’t support myself to get out of bed. Next day I was still very sore, and still needed help to get up. Still very nauseas and couldn’t keep anything down. Dr Piyapas came to see me and gave my my implant info card. When he took out my drains, it was the most uncomfortable feeling ever! felt like my boobs were getting suctioned out. Went home at around noon. Day 3: Finally the nausea was mostly gone and I could eat fine. Pain was not so bad, no where near how I thought it would be. Could move a bit more although I was being very careful as I did not want to pull any muscles. Did some walking which was a little uncomfortable, but not painful. Haven’t taken any pain killers since they gave me some coming out of surgery as I didn’t feel the need and also didn’t want to feel nauseas anymore! Day 4: Feel pretty normal, a bit of morning boob but other than that, pretty good. I was comfortable moving around more and could lift my arms above my head. Got my hair washed and did some relaxing! Day 5 (today): Had my post op consult with Dr Piyapas today. He was kind, but very straight to the point. Took photos and showed me how to massage my boobs. I feel completely fine today, I can move my arms pretty freely (albeit still very careful). My boobs look decent for the first week - they just feel a bit numb and tight. Coming from nothing, I’m quite happy with the size so far but I can’t wait for them to drop and fluff! I will be posting photos in the near future, as well as updates when anything changes. Feel free to send over a FR Sorry for the loooong post, but hope this is helpful for anyone considering Dr Piyapas or BHP. Had a really good experience so far - would recommend them!
  8. Hey guys So I had my surgery on the 11th November at Bangkok hospital phuket with dr p and so far my only regret is not going bigger!! Honest to god I can not stop touching them. I was walking along the street and walked straight into someone because I was too busy staring down at them hahaha my side boob is like out of control! Im 167cm 60kg and had 325cc smooth gel implants placed under the muscle. I was a 10b to start off with and have no idea what size I'll be so if anyone knows that would be awesome haha The staff at the hospital are really friendly, helpful and caring. They provide better care than that of nurses back home! They escort you everywhere so you don't need to worry about getting lost and stressing. The whole thing was completely stress free I feel. I've still got some pain mainly along the outside of my breasts where the drains were, which didn't hurt having them taken out if anyone was wondering. My nipples are also super sensitive sometimes. My incisions are really clean and surprisingly small which is awesome. They seem to be healing really well but at different rates. I've been dressing mine myself since I got my bandages off. I did heaps of walking around without discomfort the day after and there onwards which probably wasn't the best idea for the first couple of days but it's doable. I only took the pain medication for the first five days and then felt like I didn't need it anymore. I also kinda forgot to ice for the first like 4 days haha my swelling is pretty much completely gone now though. I highly recommend the Anna post op bra everyone talks about. It's so comfy and lightweight which is perfect for thailand weather. Any questions just shoot me a message or something on here. Also if anyone knows roughly what size I'll be that would be super.
  9. I've created a group called bangkok hospital Phuket for all members who have gone through or are going through this hospital please add this group to share your experiences
  10. Hi everyone, I had breast augmentetation done 6 months ago by Dr. Nond at Bumrungrad. The hospital was a,azing and he was amazing. I am wanting to go back to Thailand to get rhinoplasty. I would love to go back to bumrungrad but their prices have gone up so much. Last time my partner and I went to Koh Samui and Pangang before Bangkok to get a holiday out of it too; however we can't afford to do that this time so I either go just to bangkok or I can go to Phuket and have a holiday and surgery at the same time. Which brings me to my question, has anyone had rhinoplasty at either PIAC or Bangkok Hospital Phuket?? Would love to hear about it. Thanks xx
  11. So I have finally managed to get some time to upload pictures and write about my experience! I will try to keep it short but I think its going to be pretty long. I went to Phuket to get new boobs and 2 crowns + teeth whitening. All up my procedures cost $6200.00 AUD (Quoted 12K for boobs and 3K+ for teeth in Perth so ive paid less then half the price). So much to say... Dont know where to begin. Its been awhile I cant remember the full detals. But I booked the trip myself direct with the Hospital. They arranged for drivers to pick me up and drop me off from my hotel. There was only one instance when the driver did not arrive (morning of surgery AHHH)... I called the hospital and the lady arranged everything straight away and apologised for the miss communication. The day before surgery I went to the hospital to get a mould taken of my teeth for the crowns. I went to the registration desk and they signed me up took a photo and gave me a hospital ID card. I wont go into detail about the teeth if anyone is interested send me a message. Will say that the lady dentist I had was lovely and really accommodating to my fear of needles. Anyway... After arriving at the hospital on the morning of my operation I was asked to complete some forms about medical history etc. While doing that a friendly australian girl was there getting a 3/4 day check up. She basically lifted her top in the waiting room and gave me and my bf a look haha. I had my blood and weight taken then got photos taken of my boobs before the operation. (I thought it was a bit strange they lady kinda was there watching me undress and dress)... I then was escorted to the Radiology and Heart Centre for X rays and ECG? (i think) testing. It was great they took you where you need to go and there was not very much waiting. When I finally met with Dr Piyapas he was so nice and calm it made me feel much more easy. I basically knew what I wanted after all the research id done. I told him my thoughts and asked what cup size I wanted afterwards first I said D then was like DD? I want the biggest you can fit safely (lol) - He did measurements and wrote all over me in pen and pointed out that my boobs didnt match I was already well aware of that and we talked about him evening them out with more CCs in the left. He also went over the different sizes and profiles. He didnt have and Mod + sizers to try on but thought they would fit my shape better. I wanted to see pictures of Mod + and High Profile implants as after photos but he said it would take too much time so I just said he can do what he thinks is best. We decided between 350-400CC. I kept saying the bigger the better! After that I was so excited and couldnt wait! Then they asked me when I last ate (6am that morning) - I was under the understanding my surgery was at about 2:30pm that day and thought that was ok and 8 hours was enough but it wasnt so they took me to pay for the pricedure and then up to my hospital room and said I would need to wait for awhile and I waited and waited and was really mad I ate something as I was meant to be the first patient at 11:30am but ended up going in at 4:30pm. While in the room I was pretty bored. I had my iphone with me but that was all. The TV was not really that good all the channels didnt match their listing so it was really annoying trying to go through them all. Most of the english channels were cartooms. Anyway a nurse came in and put in the IV line. It was really painful and continued to be because I pressed down on my arm not long after having it put in... It REALLY hurt! So when the time finally come to take me to theater they put me in a wheel chair and rolled me down. I thought this would be the point where Id start freaking out... But I didnt I was sick of waiting and just wanted to get it done! Outside the operating rooms they transfered me to a theatre bed and then i was wheeled through to my theatre. It was freezing cold and no one was in there for a few minutes and I was so cold I was shivering. Then the anaesthetist came in and asked me about all the medications I was allergic too, if id had surgery before, if my parents ever had complications etc... Then he strapped my arms down and out and I was like OMG... Dr Piyapas came in and was so friendly and nice and we talked about sizing again. I didnt want him to stuff in the biggest size for the sake of it and told him again just to put in what he thought was the best fit not the biggest because I had been so greedy beforehand in the consultation. He said he'd take good care of me held my hand and then thats pretty much all I remember I dont recall the anaesthetist saying right its time or them putting me to sleep. When I woke up I was cold freezing cold and shaking I felt pain in my chest and they moved me onto another bed that really really hurt. All I remember is saying to a nurse what size did I get and is it normal to be shaking like this? She told me 375cc and then they put a blanket on me and all I felt was warm air... I remember thinking awwwwesommmme!!! haha then I drifted in and out of sleep and also remember at one point saying I need to go to the toilet... She put a bed pan under me but I dont think I could bring myself to pee lying down I remember thinkging ew its going to go all over me and it felt wrong haha but i must have!?!. When it was time to go back to my room my bf was there outside of recovery and all I said to him was... i was shaking like a bad hangover hahaha or something like that. When I got to my hospital room they transfered me to my bed againt and that was the most painful part. the nurse gave me some sleeping pills and I went to sleep. Woke up the next day feeling sore but could manage to hold my drains and negotiate the IV to the bathroom to use the toiet unassisted. The nurses came in every now and then. Dr Piyapas came in and gave me the Mentor implants card and also pulled out my drains. I asked him if it would hurt. He said you'll feel it but it shouldnt. It didnt hurt, just felt weird like you could definetly feeling dragging along my side. He said that I could take off the banadages and wear a bra aswell before I left the hospital. He mentioned that he used the same CC in each boob as it wouldnt have looked right otherwise and I was a bit dissapointed as I knew the left was smaller.... But thought O well he knows best. So did the big unveiling in my bathroom after I got in the shower and made sure my top half didnt get wet. I was quite surprised I was this mobile and up about about showering on day 1. When I got out and took the bandages off there was no bruising - they looked bigger for sure but were kinda flat, square, and a really ugly shape from side view. I knew they'd be ugly to begin with so that didnt bother me. I got ready by myself doing things in slow motion as some movement hurt then checked out of the hospital. Before I left I picked up my medicine and then got a driver to take me back to the hotel. I thought it was good they gave me 2 ice packs and every medication was clearly labelled how many pills to take and how often. The drive back over the bumps did hurt I just held onto my boobs to make sure they didnt bounce too much. Got back to hotel and my bf was there. We went out into Patong and brought some dvds and had lunch. I was walking around slowly but was not in much pain. The next few days was just taking things easy I was never bed ridden and so sore I couldnt go out. I was expecting to be lying in bed too sore to move for at least day 1-4 but I never felt that bad! On day 4 me and my bf did a day trip on a boat out to James Bond Island... It was not very bumpy or rough on the boat and I wasn't hurting at all except for a few stabs here and there if I moved a certain way. I went to see Dr P for a check up on day 5 I think. I told him my right boob was hurting more and there was some stabbing pain only on that side that was happening infrequently he presribed me some medication for the nerves that might have been affected during surgery. He took off the dressings and put on waterproof bandages and then took more pictures. He gave me some pink shower gel that was medicated and that was pretty much that. No drama no concerns. I paid for my medicine and went back to the hotel again. Carried on pretty well and no problems for the next few days and then one morning I work up with a sore calf muscle and was worried I might have a blood clot - i did a bit of googling and thought i would be alright... I had an appointment the next day with Dr P again so if it was still hurting just thought that I would tell him... It wasnt on the morning I saw him for the last time and I forgot about it. The last consult he took off the waterproof dressings and he taught me how to massage. He took the last set of photos aswell and wanted one with me too which I thought was nice and I got one too on my iphone. Its been over a month now since new boobs... Im a bit annoyed that the left boob has dropped quicker then the right and they look a bit wonky with the nipples sitting in different positions - I know that only me and my bf see that but im hoping right boob will join the lefty soon and they will look more even - I hope anyway because the right boob was always a bit bigger then the left. I have put up before and after pictures you can clearly see the difference in boobs beforehand so I guess you cant get perfectly even and symmetrical boobs post op if you didnt have them to begin with. In saying that though I really LOVE the size of them now and the feeling of having that fullness without any push up padded bras. I am so happy i got them done! Dr Piyapas is such a nice surgeon and from the moment I met him I knew id be in good hands!!!
  12. Hi everyone I have been thinking it's time for rhinoplasty or alarplasty. I saw Dr Paul O'Keeffe, he provided great consultation however it's so expensive in Australia. So my question is, where or how would i find the best surgeon in Bangkok, any recommendations is greatly appreciated. Any further information or personal experiences are also very welcomed. x;)
  13. Hey Ladies, So I am interested in going to Thailand for a BA. After reading through the threads on here, I have decided to go directly through the hospital and was hoping for some advice or personal experiences?? Has anyone been to Bangkok Hospital Phuket, or have any knowledge on this hospital? Is this hospital a good choice or are there better options in Thailand??? Thanks!!
