  1. Hi gals! I'm 3 weeks post op from my breast augmentation and I am absolutely loving them. I wrote up a little blog post (let me continue to reiterate that I am not a doctor!) about the things I learned before and after my surgery. I've gotten some great feedback from friends, peers, and strangers about it who are thinking about getting theirs done so if you're curious- have a read! Cheers and enjoy! http://mischkebusiness.com/2014/10/21/the-boobs/#more-2938
  2. Hi everyone, After doing hours and hours of research I just stumbled upon this forum. (If only I'd discovered it earlier.) I'm a complete newbie who is just beginning to do her research so any advice is much appreciated. I am planning to go to Bumrungrad Hospital for BA but not sure which surgeon. (So many to choose from.) Could anyone give me some recommendations or share their experience with me please? I think I will be travelling alone unless I can drag my best friend to come along with me. Brit
  3. I would have to say I was the ultimate "nervous nelly" about the prospect of travelling overseas for surgery. I feel grateful to all the people who have shared their experiences as I would never have gone ahead if it wasn't for this forum so I thought I should pay it forward. The most important decision for me was trying to find the best doctor in Bangkok who specialised in the procedures I wanted. I emailed so many doctors and consulted with three doctors whilst I was there before deciding on Dr Seree. I'm so gad that I finally made the plunge to do it when all my friends and family warned me against going overseas. Good luck to all those people who are embarking on their journey. You won't regret it.
  4. Does anyone know where is a nice decent priced relaxing hotel nearby the Bumrungrad hospital for reovery? There are so many online I do not know who to chose?! ANY FEEDBACK would be appreciated
  5. Hello guys and gals First of all, I am truly sorry it has taken me so long to get back to this forum. When I was researching and talking with others about where to have surgery etc I was so hungry for information i promised myself that I would write a long detailed log of my journey to help others with their decision like so many girls on here did for me. Since getting back (I had my surgery in March last year) my life has been crazy hectic. In fact I can't believe it has been nearly a year! But better late then never... I booked everything through Global Health Travel. My surgeon was Dr. Teerasit. Originally I was meant to fly in October but the floods happened and so it was cancelled at the last minute. Dr Teerasit and his wife Juree were amazing even then, answering all my queries within a day or two by email. After months of discussing with Dr.T, Cassandra (the Managing Director of GHT) and people who had had surgery already, I was more than prepared. I packed everything I could possibly need and booked 3 weeks in Bangkok just across the road from the apartments. We did as much as possible in the first week before my surgery just in case I was sick or something post-surgery I wanted to see the city. The morning after we arrived we met Daisy and Loverly. They are the kindest, most compassionate and hard-working girls and went over everything with me, when we will be going to appointments, etc. When you arrive at your hotel, GHT will have left a package full of info that you may need, including a mobile phone with all the GHT contact numbers already stored on there. We went shopping with some of the other girls- the shops over there are unbelievable! One day shopping will not cut it. Not if you love to shop anyway! We saw all the temples as well which were beautiful, Thailand is a stunning spiritual country with a lot of history. We also went out for dinner with Cassandra and some other people who were having surgery, it was nice to meet other people going through the same thing. We had a great night out. Heading to the hospital for the first time for my consultation, I could see why GHT didn't want us to stay too far from the patient apartments. Although the hospital is literally a five minute walk, the famous Bangkok traffic can stretch it to an hour! Bumrungrad hospital is unbelievable. It looks more like a 5 star resort and works like clockwork. It was a huge shock to me, coming from the UK where the health system is badly disorganised and overflowing. There is no waiting around at any point, you simply walk in, hand over your details, and you get called through. Having Daisy with me at these appointments was invaluable. Flying overseas and having surgery in a country that speaks a different language was nerve wracking enough, it was a huge comfort having someone there who spoke the language, dealt with all the paperwork and knew exactly where to go (the hospital is HUGE!). Looking back I can not imagine just how much more stressed I would have been walking around that huge hospital not knowing where to go and looking after all the details like payments, admission, discharging and translations. The next day was my surgery (8am- nice and early!). When I woke up, I was lovely and warm from the electric pads around my legs that they use so that the blood continues to pump around your body (great idea!). I was really sick from the anesthetic, Dr T wouldn't let me leave until I had eaten a proper meal which was really difficult to do. Later in the day they took out the drains and changed my bandages. The recovery suite was amazing. Loverly and Daisy came to check up on me and helped me get back to the hotel. I struck up a lot of friendships over the time I was there, but Cherie and I had our surgery the same morning with the same surgeon (her surgery was just after mine) so we spent a lot of time together while recovering, shopping mostly! I was bedridden for one day only, to my delight. There was a complication with my left breast during surgery that couldn't have been avoided. Dr Teerasit took his time explaining to me how he had to make an extra incision in that breast and how to take care of the wound, which he still did for months afterwards until it completely healed. My stitches weren't ready to come out when I left two weeks later, so I had them removed by a nurse in Australia, they were really impressed with Dr.T's work! The hardest part of the recovery for me was sleeping. You have to sleep on your back propped up with pillows which was tough for me as I always sleep on my stomach. The hotel were sweet enough to give us extra pillows so I could stop myself from rolling over in the night. Dr Teerasit told me to keep in mind that, due to most women's breasts not being perfectly symmetrical anyway, that they may not be identical after. Apart from the wound i had on my left breast, they are in fantastic shape and look perfectly symmetrical to me. I have some numbness on my skin below my nipples, but i have sensation in my nipples which is usually the biggest concern with breast reductions, so I consider myself really lucky. My advice if you're considering surgery is to research, research, research. Don't go ahead until you are 100% confident of your decision and are completely aware for any possible complications. When I told some friends that I was having surgery done it Thailand, they were horrified. Anyone would have thought I said I was having it done in an alleyway! I had researched this surgery and weighed up my options for 2 years. By the time my flights were booked, I had so much faith in this hospital and this surgeon that had I won the lottery I still would have gone there. Knowing what I know now about the hospital's infection rate (something like less than 1% compared to Australia which is 17% or something), and "qualified" doctors in Australia that advertise themselves as cosmetic/plastic surgeons, I would go to Bumrungrad for any elective surgery. The standard of care there is unlike anything I have ever seen. I'm a media student, and am fully aware of the scare tactics broadcasters use to sway people away from having surgery overseas, preferring them to spend a large fortune here. Some people weren't supportive of me having a breast reduction anyway, not seeing why I would want to do such a thing. My reasons for getting a breast reduction are multiple. If it was just one factor, i probably would have just lived with it. But the frustration of not being able to exercise, fear of premature ageing, not finding clothes that fit, being judged, back pain, self-esteem and not being in proportion were too many to ignore. It is terrible that having excess breast tissue (which is something that cannot be defeated with exercise) isn’t eligible for a tax rebate and is six times the cost of stomach stapling. I mean no disrespect to people who are overweight and don’t want to disparage them from seeking help but fat you can in time get rid of yourself, breast tissue you can’t and the pain is a lot more invasive and troubling in everyday life. My confidence has improved so much since the surgery. When I first decided that I wanted to have it done, my first thought would be to have it done back home in the UK as I would probably get it done for free on the NHS. After doing some research I found I would have to wait for years and that’s even if I applied as an extreme case. The next obvious choice would be to have it done in Australia where I was living, as the hospitals there have a better reputation. But the cost was astronomical. $16,000: for the surgery alone. I would get a 10% rebate from Medicare, but hearing that felt like a slap in the face considering people who have weight-loss surgery are considered more important than those suffering the agony and embarrassment of large breasts who can’t exercise them away. I am so glad I found Bumrungrad hospital, you get treated with nothing but respect, the hospital is unbelievable, runs like clockwork, the doctors and nurses are amazing, just being in the place you feel like you are in a five star resort. I am so glad now that I didn’t get it done for free in the UK. I am happy to answer any questions. Just in case I don't log back on for a while and miss heaps more messages (sorry about that guys!!), feel free to email me and I'll get back to you anna2186@hotmail.com Anna
  6. Hello everyone, I was just wondering where others had stayed when getting surgery in Bumrungrad Hospital/where you are planning to stay? I'm currently looking for a quiet, comfortable place, nothing too expensive. I don't need anything fancy, as long as it's clean and relatively quiet, I'll be happy Thank you in advance!

  9. Hello everyone, I am new here. I have booked flights, accomodation and a consultation to see Dr Amorn Poomee at Bumrungrad Hospital, Bangkok, in mid September this year. I feel confident that he is an amazing doctor but I can not get a hold of any before and after photos. I have asked the hospital but they say they can not email photos to me and that they will show me photos in my consultation. Has anyone has surgery with Dr Poomee, or heard of surgery done by him? Thank you
  10. Hi All, I had a full breast lift with implants using an inverted t scar with Dr Teerasit around 9 months ago. I have finally got around to uploading before and after photos. For anyone considering Dr T I would highly recommend him. My surgery was quite complex and i was so worried about the scarring, Dr T's highly skilled surgery skills left with the finest of lines as scars. You cant really see the scars in the photos but I have a full scar around my nipple, from the nipple to the breast crease and all the way along the breast crease. I have a full breast lift with 250cc implants. I went from and empty saggy 10D to a full, perky round 12DD and couldnt be happier. Feel free to ask any questions about my surgery, my experience or Dr T.
  11. Hi All I'm booked in with Dr Poomee @ Bumrungrad in April to have an areola lift with implants, but have yet to see any of his before and afters. I also haven't seen any B&A of an areola lift. Are there any ladies out there who have had this incision and are willing to show me their B&As please? Even better if you've had it done with Dr Poomee. Thanks in advance! Terrie
  12. Hello Everyone, so here my question, I have recieved a quote for my rhinopalsty and BA, the hospital said I am eligible for their "package" but then in small note below they said Package price(s) provided are for estimation purposes only..... well I am confused I thought the whole point of having the online consulation and sending pictures is to have an individual estimate.... of course I understand they may performe some others test etc..., but I dont want say yes to them thinking i will pay 100,000bath and then the surgeon inform me it will be 400,000 on the day. Any of you who have been to bumrungrad had an experience with extra/ hidden cost for their surgery??? thanks in advance!!!

  14. Hi everyone, so if you've read any of my posts you'd know that im pretty sure i'll go with Dr Poomee for ba and a lift but my second choice was Dr Teerasit so I thought i'd email him through the Bumrungrad website and see what they say, price etc etc anyways I got a reply a few days later, but not from the hospital, was from GHT, is that normal I haven't emailed them or made any enquiries with them at all, so yeah was a little confused as to why I got a response from them instead.. any ideas? x
  15. I'd like to introduce myself as the Managing Director of 'Global Health Travel' so that everyone is aware of who I am and so that I do not breach any forum rules. This is my first post on the Plastic Surgery Forum. I'm not here to sell anything, I am here to diffuse the rumours about this presumed*'Battle' between Global Health Travel (GHT) and Bangkok Makeovers (BM). I personally think of a forum as a medium for honest and open discussion about a subject of public interest, and I applaud everyone here whether posting or just viewing; for your commitment to diligent research prior to going overseas.*I became aware of the recent topic 'Global Health Travel vs Bangkok Makeovers' via some past and present GHT clients who frequent the forum. I hope to clear up some of the confusion caused by this thread and hope that you will view my input here as an honest representation and not as some kind of sales pitch.

 Firstly, I would like to point out that I know 'Rachel' of Bangkok Makeovers; not only is she a competitor but she is also a friend and I can assure you that there is no 'battle' going on between us. We have a lot in common stemming from our shared passion for this industry that we are both very privileged to be a part of. We are both 'facilitators', which means we help people to make well-informed decisions about travelling overseas for surgery; whilst ensuring that their safety and positive health outcomes remain the very highest priority.*Rachel offers a wonderful personalised service and I have the utmost respect for her and her mission...as I believe her mission echoes my own. Rachel and I didn't get into this industry because we wanted to 'make a quick buck'; we identified the need for a service that offered patient case management as well as ongoing support...and that means before, during AND after surgery. Both Rachel and I can offer this via the services of our respective companies. We are both 'on the ground' (living in) Bangkok and routinely deal with the challenges ladies find themselves presented with throughout this process. The questions, fears, hesitations and expectations leading up to surgery, and then of course the pain thresholds, emotional support and there are sometimes even more questions to answer during post-op recovery! It's hard work to say the least, but we both do it with heartfelt concern for those who (have done their research and) have ultimately made the decision to put their faith and trust in us....GHT or BM the mission remains the same! You as the 'consumers' have the right to shop around and find the service and price that's right for you and this is where platforms such as this forum are invaluable! Yours Sincerely, Cassandra Italia Managing Director Global Health Travel
