  1. Hey lovelies, I don’t know anyone who has had a breast uplift & implants or any cosmetics surgery for that matter, so I’m unsure if how I feel is perfectly normal! I went abroad from the UK to Poland for surgery 12 weeks ago, after 2 children my breasts were an empty 34C & I didn’t like the sight of myself naked. I was advised by my surgeon to go for round mentor 340cc silicon implants on top of the muscle with anchor surgery. The surgery it’s self was straightforward though I had a rubbish reaction to the anaesthetic (which I was totally unprepared for) after being dis
  2. Hi - I'm considering my options for a breast lift with implants and obviously the overseas option is appealing to reduce costs. I was looking at the option of using the NIB Options insurance to arrange the procedure in Thailand. Has anybody else on the forum either done this, if so what was your experience. Would also appreciate your thoughts if you looked into it and decided against it. Any advice would be really appreciated, thanks!
  3. I thought I would write up my experience because I know I loved reading others. Yesterday at 1:05pm I was taken into surgery with Dr Boonchai for a BA. I was picked up from the hotel at 8am and went into my consult around 9:30. He went through all the risk and placement, size and all that stuff about the information and like the other girls have said he seemed like he had said that a thousand time and then I went into a different room and got to try on sizers in the sexy mumma bra! I ended up choosing 450 HP, round textured implants placed dual plane and through the crease. He had recomme

  5. Hey girls Has anyone used this surgeon? I can only find good things and I've double checked and he is a member of the aesthetic society but I want more info please.
  6. :p Well ladies seem to be a few of us and the list is growing weekly! As suggested lets put all our dates and info on here that way we can follow each others progress and dealings with Doctor B. Will also be a great place to put updates about our surgery (we want to know everything at every possible minute and to help each other when we are nervously waiting in our swanky hospital rooms! Will be a great thread for other ladies who are interested in the same doctor to jump on and get lots of good info. Good luck everyone!!! xxxx
  7. Hey ladies, I've been lurking this forum for a long time and I'm finally getting to the stage where I am wanting to book my operation and get everything sorted (yay) so I was wondering if any of you know if they do both surgerys at the same time? I am looking to go with Dr Montien for the rhino but I'm not that sure if he is great with boobs. I did want to go to PIAC for a boob job but then I have my heart set on Montien for rhino so I am stuck with what to do Any feed back would be appreciated xx
  8. Hey guys, I haven't been on this in ages - but I keep my profile up for any newbies going through the same thing. If i can help ease your worries even a teensy bit - I'm happy. I have pre op and updated post op pics and photo's of the hospital room in my gallery. I also have a thread of my overseas surgery experience from July 4 2013 detailing as much as I could in the character limit I went through recovery with a friend who had unders, so i can offer a comparison of our surgeries/recovery. Hope you're all doing well, pre and post op girls B NB: I know everyon
  9. 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
  10. Hi, Im new to the forum so go easy on me I have been considering a breast lift and was hoping some people could recommend or share experiences for Sydney surgeons and possibly overseas. I know a lot of you have experience with both the implants and lifts but Im just after the lift lol Im more inclined to have it done in Sydney because im a little bit scared of the idea of getting it done overseas. So if anyone could give me info on: - good docs for this type of surgery both overseas and syd. (minimal scaring, natural. I know that is can vary with patients and natural reaction)
  11. Just wanting to know anyone who has used him or know anything about him. I have only found his c.v. So no real reviews. Thanks in advance
  12. Hello I am hoping for some insight if possible. I am researching breast augmentation for late this year. Im concerned after reading some posts here as I had chosen Destination Beauty. I have emailed the Cosmetic Surgery Registration Board in Thailand (only tonight) to see if he is an active member. I opted for the Bangkok Hospital Phuket as I will be there anyway and have accommodation booked already. They now offer an insurance for $400 in case a return trip is required and further surgery is needed. I was actually satisfied with things so far until I started to google chat forums. I have fou

  15. Ok so my surgery is on 6th February and I am starting to get nervous. Worried about the pain worried about my kids . Argh so many things going thru my mind.
  16. Hi everyone! My name is rose and I'm a long time lurker, first time poster. I've been doing heaps of research on getting some procedures done overseas (tummy tuck and BA), and I've decided that PIAC is for me. Everyone raves about it, and I'd rather spend a bit of extra cash just for that peace of mind. From my research I've pretty much decided that I want dr Boonchai to do my boobies, but I'm still yet to decide who I want to do my TT. If anyone out there has had any experience (good or bad) with a TT @ PIAC, I'd love to hear from you! I welcome absolutely any information or tips, etc
  17. I just thought I would make a quick post about the benefits and disadvantages of both going abroad (overseas) or having surgery here in Australia from my experience. For those of you who don't know my story I was originally due to have my BA July last year at PIAC (Phuket, Thailand) by Dr Boonchai. I was quoted 145, 000 baht which is approx. $5000 AUD. I originally booked through a company called Beauty Abroad (which i definitely would NOT recommend booking through as I had to organise everything from flights to accommodation without their help at all and it was quicker for me to email the h
  18. Hi, I am having a breast augmentation done next year in Prague, Europe. I can't find anyone who would insure this surgery. I am worried if something goes wrong and I would have to be admitted to the hospital because of some complications, travel insurance wouldn't cover this. I am kind of desperate as I have contacted so many insurance companies and no one goes beyond travel insurance. Can you please tell me if you know about anyone who does it? Many thanks
  19. Hey guys! So I'm just under 2 months away from surgery and I've book an appointment to see my doctor about getting any recommended shots when travelling to Thailand. What shots did your doctor recommend and how much did it cost approx.? Also, did you tell your doctor you were getting surgery over there? I mentioned wanting to get a BA a while ago to my doctor and first thing she said was "Don't go overseas if you really want to we can organise a good surgeon here in Australia for you" I'm worried about telling her I've booked it and am going through with it... help!
  20. Has anyone booked through beauty abroad? Or had breast augmentation done at PIAC? I really want to gather some advice from those who have been through this already and can offer their opinion. I'm looking at going in July! =D
  21. I'm going to phuket in march for a face and neck lift and have had a great quote from Dr Narupon but the problem is I don't know much about his results. Has anyone had any experience? I know that Dr Piyapas is great but have been trying to get a quote from him for face and neck lift only, but he must be exceptionally busy as I haven't heard back. Originally I did receive a quote for other procedures in addition to face and necklift from him which has taken it far out of my budget unfortunately Help needed please. Anything on Dr Narupon would be wonderful Cheerys Leah
  22. Just on the topic of overseas surgery insurance, i know of the companies that do cover you and all the info. I was just wondering if there is anyone who has actually made a claim on their surgery (BA or other) and if they were succesful in getting a pay out. I am trying to decide if it is worth having insurance or not. The wording in the PDS is making me unsure if it would be a simple process or if the company makes it difficult to get any money out of them. Would love to hear from anyone with experience in this, even just experience in the insurance industry who could help make some s
  23. Hi ladies, I am on my way to Thailand for a consult and hopefully a BA!! I couldn't be more excited and all the forums I have read plus doing my own research for the past 6 years has prepared me enough to go ahead. BUT before I commit 100% to a BA in Bangkok, I was wondering whether anyone would recommend getting a BA done in Australia (Bris\Syd) Reading some posts on costs for BA's in Australia are making me wonder whether to wait and have surgery in my own backyard --- the cost for BA in Thailand is roughly $1000-$1800 in difference to a BA in Aus. I have always thought that I
  24. Hey everyone- I have seen some ads for going overseas for breast augmentation. Which country is the best and safest in this area? The ads that I have seen claim that it is 70% cheaper than here, is that true? How much is normal for breast implants? I want to go over in the next few months so that they are healed in time for Summer. What sort of waiting time is there in these countries? What are the best hospitals and doctors to go to? I am really looking for people that have been there or had a good experience. Do the doctors do before and after pics for you to see before you go?
