  1. I'm 59...still, in 2 days I'll be 60, and, this is my 60th birthday present to myself. I knew I was going to have a face lift one day, and last year I thought now is the time, so I started researching. I read many reviews and watched many Youtube videos. Thailand seemed like my best option in terms of reputation and expense. However, when contacting places like Destination Beauty and Cosmeditour, and after considering several doctors I always had the feeling that it might not be reliable or safe, although the reviews were always good. So, I decided to do it at home in Sydney. I did my research, picked a reputable surgeon and went for a consultation. Well, a face lift was just going to be way too expensive, around 30K all inclusive but only an estimate, which never means less. So, I settled on having just the lower eyelids done, day surgery under general anaesthetic and ended up paying 10K total after the hospital sent me another bill for $1000 extra because the doctor took longer than expected. Anyway, 6 months later my eye bags were looking much better except for more crows feet at the sides (see images), so then the neck and jowls were still hanging there. I started researching Thailand again, knowing it was the only option unless I wanted to go with a cheaper, less experienced, accredited Sydney Doctor, who would charge 20K total. I came across Dr Chartchai's name here and in the Realself forums, and whenever his name came up people said he was highly regarded in the field, and is well known for the great work he does, and because of this he does charge more. I narrowed my research down to focussing just on him and was happy with what I found out. I decided this is my surgeon. I sent an email to the hospital with my photos and I also contacted Bodyline Patient Care - a company connected with Dr Chartchai. The quote came back as 420,000 bahts, which is roughly $19000 Australian, and so it was affordable, and I had the confidence I wanted in a surgeon. Janese of Bodyline Patient Care contacted me, and she led me through the whole procedure from start to finish. There was no need for me to think. She still rings me now. She's an Aussie and that does help. Surgery took 7 hours I am told, they do a full health check before it (unlike in Sydney), all the staff at Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital were so nice. I had to shower with antiseptic cleanser before the operation (unlike in Sydney).The anaesthetist gave me gas to sleep before doing anything (unlike in Sydney where the needle was put into a vein in my hand while I was awake). After surgery I woke feeling very very drowsy and thirsty and couldn't talk. Janese was there to put a straw to my mouth and reassure me that all was good. Then I dosed off, woke up and Janese was there to spoon feed me some soup. I dosed off again and when I woke at 3 AM Janese was still there, and she told me she would go home now and come back later. At breakfast she was there, and by now I could sit up and eat some scrambled eggs (yummy) and juice. I didn't feel like any of the other food on the tray since it's not easy to eat, and this goes on for about 3 or 4 days, just soft foods. After the usual check ups through the day I had my shower (keeping head dry) and then at 2 pm I was discharged. Janese took me to Starbucks for coffee and cake, and then we got a taxi to the hotel. The Windsor Hotel, executive suite, all booked through Bodyline was a real treat. I had a beautiful view from the 31st floor, access to the executive dining room on the 32nd floor which looks over Bangkok city, and this is where I had breakfast, evening drinks and snacks, all inclusive. I had a nurse, Marie, from Bodyline stay with me the first night to give me ice packs and make sure I was comfortable. Janese took me to breakfast the next morning. On the 4th day we went out shopping, and then the shopping and tourism part of the experience continued until I left Thailand 2 weeks after arriving. I had fun. Janese knows Thailand very well, having worked there for 15 years with Bodyline Patient Care. Dr Chartchai turned out to be all I expected, and I think it's due to him and his skills that I am not in any discomfort and I can hardly tell where the scars are. How did my family react when I told them I was getting a facelift in Bangkok? They were very supportive, and had no issues with medical tourism. My sister came over a week after my surgery, and also got a little work on her eye area. Dr Chartchai made time for her. My sister and I have concluded that the medical standards and care at major hospitals like Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital, are better than in Sydney. My huge private room with large screen TV and ensuite was more like a hotel room. It was also dead quiet and the nurses all have soft shoes and you don't hear them walking in. Dr Chatchai is very busy, therefore consultations are short, and he doesn't show you before and after images of his patients because he doesn't have to. If you don't choose him he has enough patients already. He doesn't need to compete or advertise. His website provides useful information, but no before and after images. I was fine with this. I am now 17 days post, and back home again, feeling good, although swollen and numb. I was always a little afraid of a facelift, but the lower eyelid surgery and recovery was worse in all ways. I can honestly say in my case there is nothing to having a facelift - no pain, hardly any discomfort so far, and my stay in Thailand was actually fun. I'm planning my next trip to Bangkok - a tummy tuck. I'll be using Dr Chartchai and Janese's services again. Now, about medical tourism. I have read this and agreed with it at the time 'surgery and tourism should never be in the same sentence'. Now I know different. I haven't seen many photos or read much about the holiday experience of medical tourism, so I've posted some images of my time there. Janese organised all our outings, and Marie, the nurse, came along too. When my sister and I went shopping with Marie as our guide, she insisted on carrying all our bags as we were her patients, and she patiently waited for us to choose clothes at MBK, and gave her advice on what to buy.
  2. Put them in here please am hoping to go over in January to get lipo and veneers, have a friend who wants to come so awesome So far I have: dr Piyapas at Bangkok Phuket hospital. He is $$ and I can't find a direct way to get a personalized quote? dr boonchai at PIAC pretty well priced what other PIAC or Thai docs to my list?
  3. Hi ladies! I'm booked in with Dr Boonchai for a BL, BA and ETT in October! Anyone have any advice? Or having surgery around the same time in Bangkok? Thanks
  4. Hi ladies! I'm booked in with Dr Boonchai for a BL, BA and ETT in October! Anyone have any advice? Or having surgery around the same time in Bangkok? Thanks
  5. Hello! I’ve decided on Dr Boonchai as surgeon for BA + BL, though I keep searching for before and afters and not actually finding many! I’m very close to taking a breath, taking a leap and booking, though allaying my concerns... one of many being ending up still hating my boobs only then they’re surgically horrible boobs 😬. I’ve noticed lots of albums on here are only available if friends... so please, could anyone be my friend? Puh-leese Would be utterly grateful 😂🙏🏽 (Even happy to... gulp... post my befores, if that’d help (if I must so am seen as legit!))
  6. The Surgeon:Extended Tummy Tuck, Breast Reduction with lift with 300cc high profile round implants. Wow, this woman is incredible. She managed to get 5.8kg of sagging skin off me after losing 100kg. I saw reviews stating she was blunt etc, I didn’t get that at all. She was humorous, compassionate and caring, she listened to my concerns but she had her own and I respect that she is the surgeon and knows what she is doing. Her team are incredible and set low expectations however when I saw the after product when I woke up I was surprised. She is amazing and has such attention to detail, her incisions are minimal and the way I was put back together was neat and tidy. Highly reccomended, this woman has changed my life. Destination Beauty: I was lucky to have prime assigned as my rep for my journey, she was on the ball all the time, willing to answer questions or if she didn't know she would go find out, upon reaching Bangkok I was greeted by the team, the girls who deal with the enquiries and also the wonderful service team at the hospital. A Huge shout to to Mary, Gift, Sherry, Martin, Prame, Nam and of course the most beautiful Nurse Aom. I was completely blown away by the service I was given and noticed I wasn't singled out and others got the same. Aswell as making you feel welcome, there is a lot of realism and encouragement especially after surgery, Every question and concern was answered, I couldn't fault my experience I'm still buzzing from it. A huge thank you to Destination beauty team for their attentive and professional approach and of course Dr Angkana.
  7. Hey ladies I am hoping to have lipo surgery on my stomach and thighs I live in Cambodia, so I am thinking to have my procedure in Bangkok, as I understand that the surgeons there are very experienced and it's a short flight for me, plus I've visited Bangkok numerous times and know the city Can you please share your own lipo experiences with me? surgeon recommendation Hospital recommendation can I expect scarring afterwards? What was your recovery time? I don't particularly want to use an agent / company, as my partner will be escorting me and staying with me etc Any other do's and dont's would be really appreciated too thank you very much in advance x x
  8. I just got back from Thailand while there I visited Thantakit International Dental Hospital in Bangkok on the recommendation of a friend who had been there. They sent a car to pick me up from my hotel, I was really impressed with their service and how big and modern their facility is. I had been unhappy with my teeth for years. I had braces when I was in school but i was not happy with the white spots on them. When I'd whiten my teeth they would never look white due to the paper white stains on my teeth. I also was missing my two lateral incisors (I had one to begin with but it was removed when I got braces) This meant that my two canine teeth are immediately after my two central incisors. I originally was going to get Porcelain Veneers, but didn't want to have my teeth shaved down. I opted for compasite veneers instead. I had zoom2! Whitening done first, they applied the whitening gel a total of 4 times over an hour. When it was completed the dentist checked my tooth shade again, it was 4 shades whiter and had gotten to the whitest shade you can get your teeth to. When I have had zoom! whitening in Australia the gel was only applied once and the results were not very good. My 6 upper compasite veneers were then matched to the new white shade. The dentist did a fantastic job. I am extremely happy with the results. I paid a in total of $1500 Aud. Money well spent as since getting back in the space of two weeks have had over 50 compliments from co-workers, friends and family. People notice my new smile straight away! It feels amazing to finally have a great smile. I had wanted veneers for years after having braces. I went to Bangkok Dental Spa in 2011. The dentist there had wanted me to get 14 porcelain veneers and 4 crowns, at a cost of around $9000. When I told my dentist in Australia she was mortified! I had a laser gum lift done at the clinic, at least two of my teeth were not done correctly. The whole experience put me off the whole idea of veneers and any further dental work in Thailand. Luckily I found thantakit, they are very skilled and honest and did not try and sell my a mouth full of veneers that I did not need like the first place. I can't thank them enough!
  9. Hi there, I have been doing lots of homework for the most ideal surgeon in BANGKOK, from Dr Suchart, Dr Preeyapha, Dr. Piyapas to Dr Thiti?? I have loose skin/saggy boobs but athletic healthy build and would like my boobs magiced BUT TO A NATUAL LOOK, that is NOT 'HARD AND HIGH...' (one Dr Suchart review??) Can anyone tell me who, of them all, may be great for natural/mouldable BL&BA?? ...that would be awesome, thanks!! xx
  10. Hello, Am having a challenge being clear on some of the reviews here, so am starting a new thread. I have been in contact with Medical Departures regarding a tummy tuck and liposuction in Bangkok, and they have recommended Dr. Pichit Siriwan at Samtivej Sukhumvit Hospital. Can anyone here give me information about their experience having a tummy tuck and/or vaser lipo with this specific doctor, Pichit Siriwan at Samtivej Sukhumvit? Any with experience through Medical Departures? I was able to find some positive reviews on RealSelf, but there were a lot of negatived ones on Cosmetic Journey (though it is difficult to know if it is the same doctor, as there are spelling differences and some different locations mentioned, and it appears there may be a few doctors with similar names). https://www.samitivejhospitals.com/en/doctors/pichit-siriwan/ https://www.realself.com/find/Thailand/Plastic-Surgeon/Prichit-Siriwan Thanks for your help - it's a big scary decision, so I want to do thorough research before I settle on a doctor.
  11. I'm looking into travelling from Perth to Thailand to do Rhinoplasty with Dr. Kunachak and was looking for a travel partner that might be travelling to Thailand also. Is there anyone from Perth that wants to visit Thailand for surgery and wants to plan to go on the same day? I'm planning to do a consultation with Dr Kunachak via email and then plan everything after that. If anyone is keen to organise a date to travel to Thailand together, please let me know as it can be quite daunting travelling to a different country alone and not knowing where to go.
  12. Its was really perfect result gynecomastia surgery with Dr. Darin Muangthai (Specialist plastic sugeon at The SIB clinic, Thailand) I suffered from gynecomastic since i was young. I am always worried about it for long time as I am a real man but why did I have large breast like a woman like this. I told my friends about this and asked them if they have any idea to deal with it. And was so lucky that one of my friend was also faced with this problem like me and he suggested to go to do gynecomastia surgery. He told me he was done it already in Bangkok, Thailand with Dr.Darin at the SIB clinic and the result like his expected. After that, I was searching about the surgeon and clinic. I saw so many reviews of them. They do so many surgery services and also gynecomastia surgery. So, I started to contact them and then I planned to go to Thailand to do it. I have been to Thailand in June, 2nd and had consultation with the surgeon for free. The surgeon and staff was so kind, friendly and answer all of my question. After the consultation I decided to do it with them in June, 3rd. I am bit afraid of it but I have to do for myself. After the operation, I feel like I am a real man. The surgeon take those ugly breast out from me. I want to say thank you a lot for the surgeon and their team for helping me. It has been only 10 days and I can be new one with normal and natural breast as a man should be. Cheers! Ben.
  13. Hello, This is my first post on this website. I came here a few times initially when I was researching doctors, so I appreciate the website. I thought I would like to give something back, because when I was searching for results on Rhinoplasty in Thailand, I often was unsatisfied with the lack of results. I am Caucasian male in my 30's who travelled to Thailand on my own. I didn't use any agencies and don't believe you should. If you are an intelligent person and you don't rush your decision, you can find a qualified surgeon all on your own. I would like to initially outline how I found a surgeon in Thailand. Firstly, any doctor in Thailand can perform plastic surgery. You could be a general practitioner or dermatologist in Thailand, and you could, if you choose to do so, perform Rhinoplasties and Breast augmentations. So, with that said, it is up-to you, to be smart and find someone who is certified. To find a certified surgeon in Thailand you must use this website: SOCIETY OF AESTHETIC PLASTIC SURGEONS OF THAILAND (THSAPS) http://www.surgery.or.th/ http://www.isaps.org/ http://www.osaps.org/ After all my research, Dr Charan was the doctor I ended up choosing. Why? 1) He is qualified. When choosing a doctor in Thailand, it's helpful to know the quality of the universities there. Internationally, they are ranked around 400-500 in the world (QS World Rankings), so they are not the best places. But in saying that, if you are going to get your surgery done here, you should choose the best in the country. From my research: Chulalongkorn university is ranked number 1, followed by Mahidol university. (Charan studied at Chulalongkorn and is currently a professor of plastic surgery there) 2) He does not over-charge because you are a foreigner. Whether you have realised it or not, most developing countries, are full of opportunistic, if not, greedy people. Thailand isn't exempted from that, as you will know they have double pricing for foreigners. Where, if you have white skin and speak english, you will be charged double if not triple the price that locals would pay. I consulted with about 5 doctors before settling on Charan, and prices for a standard rhinoplasty reduction ranged from 70,000 baht, to 300,000 baht. The upper extreme belongs to a doctor by the name of Dr Somyos Kunachak (Yoskarn Clinic), whom I believe overcharges and from my research isn't even a certified plastic surgeon. Dr Charan ended up charging me approximately 80,000 baht. I had people his junior, whom he actually taught in medical school, charging more than he does for surgery. these are people with about 20 years less experience than him. I hope this puts his pricing in perspective. I'd like to reinforce that point. 3) He is mature, has a lovely bedside manner, and from his previous client photos, I could see drastic improvements in their appearance post-op. (Bear in mind, you will only be able to see these photos when you visit his clinic) So, with all that covered. Here are my pre-op and post-op photos (4 months post-op) My request to the doctor was to reduce the width of my nose tip (Tipplasty) and give it stronger definition. My surgery was performed under local anaesthetic (I had the option of choosing general anaesthetic), with sleeping medication. Overall I am happy with the results of the surgery and with my doctor. PRE-OP POST-OP 4-months

  15. Hi all hoping you can help with some advise! I am struggling to reach a decision on whether to get rhino surgery with dr montein in Bangkok (world medical centre) with cosmeditour, or, stay in Sydney and have rhino with dr Jeremy hunt who seems to be well accredited. Costs associated are actually not horrendously different, CosMediTour's all up including flights will be around $10k, whilst Sydney is looking closer to $16k. My main concern is post op care and follow ups which it doesn't seem you can get if I go through cosmeditour. has anybody done either and can help with their expierence, if it turned out ok? thanks so much!
