  1. Hi, I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with Dr Sukit Mekraksavanich in Bangkok. I believe he was one of the chosen doctors for International Rejuvenation a business based in Aus that no longer exists. My mother in law and 2 close family friends went to him, all for 3 different procedures and they all had great results. I am just asking because I hate that he no longer has an Australian Link, as well as I am emailing his direct, he doesn't have a receptionist as such, so just a bit suss about it all. I trust my MIL and FFs but just want to get some extra external reviews as well. Mainly around Breast Implant Revision as that is what I will be going for.
  2. Hello Ladies, I'm due for BA surgery in about 2 weeks and I am getting mega cold feet! I am booked with Dr. Bhumsak at BNH Hospital and I find it very odd and uncomforting that there are little to no experiences and reviews by many girls on the internet except for on facebook? Has anyone had any sort of experiences with him!?
  3. Any girls who have had their Breast Augmentation at Destination Beauty in Bangkok?
  4. 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?
  5. Hey girls! This is my first post; just looking for some advice on multiple things to do with the surgery. I've planned the BA at the beginning of my travels for at least 6 months. We're going to Thailand, Dubai, then travelling around Europe. I know and understand the recovery time and the process of a BA and will be taking time in Thailand and Dubai particularly to relax and recover for a few weeks to begin with and have a very supportive boyfriend to help me throughout. I've booked my BA with Dr. Veerawat in Phuket in February. From the online consultation, I've discovered my breasts are slightly tuberous. Surgical recommendation is that I have a tight and narrow lower pole and will require some internal scoring, dual plane placement, with teardrop implants. It also states that if I want more with my nipples he would suggest a donut lift. I've read that he tends to suggest this option to perfect the look quite often. Personally I think internal scoring with be enough. Has anyone had this experience? I'm just worried that my nipples with stretch and look bigger. Does this occur with a BA for people with slight/mild tuberous breasts quite often and is it possibly better to have a donut lift? My nipples are I guess relatively big considering the size of my breasts currently, yet my breasts are quite tiny. Does anyone suggest the Surgery Travel warranty with cosmeditour? Would love to hear any advice. X
  6. after doing alot of research I think im tempted to go to Thailand and get my nose fixed but in two minds about where to go though, ive heard great reviews on Dr. Montien but also Rungkit Tanjapatkul with MediMakover. Has anyone been through Medi Makeover?
  7. 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
  8. Hi, Ive been looking at travelling overseas for BA and possible Lipo. I have been in discussion with some reputable agencies that arrange everything for you etc. and have been looking into Dr Piyapas for a BA and Lipo. Recently I had come accross Dr Ronachai, his lipo results seem great, which is what I havent seen from Piyapas, however he is not associated with any agencies in Aus as he works from his own clinic. This makes me a little uneasy, as I do see few pics/reviews from Australians travelling to see him and there is noone really ensuring the cleanliness, prices, etc on my behalf like a trusting agency normally would. Has anyone here had any experience with Dr Ronachai in Bangkok, or any lipo experience with Piyapas where they can share results? Has anyone arranged their own travel and procedures overseas without the help of an agency? How were you sure you were getting the best price and treatment while overseas? TIA :)
  9. Hi all. I was wondering if anyone has heard anything about Dr. Kasemsak from Destination Beauty. I've been quoted by him for a breast augmentation as I have asymetrical breasts and would like a correction. Has anyone heard of Dr. Kasemsak and his work at all? he plans to use two different sized implants to correct. I have also been quoted by PIAC and another Thailand surgeon for a Breast Lift in the larger breast and and augmentation but I don't fell comfortable having a lift, as I understand that I wont be able to breastfeed after I've had a lift. Has anyone else been in this situation at all? How did you go about your surgery? I'd love some advice as I'm really not sure. Thanks! xx
  10. Hello, I am off to Thailand on the 28th of August to have cosmetic surgery at PPSI with Dr. Pongstatorn. I will be having mid-lower facelift and neck lift with under chin correction as well as blephorapasty (upper and lower). I have a question for people who have had procedures done regarding outpatient pain medication. Do we get pain relief even though they are very strict about it in Thailand? The drug laws are so strict I was wondering will patients get strong relief like panadeine forte? Over should I bring my own ( which I understand I need a note and not 30 days supply due to laws in importing medication) The only thing I am dreading is the pain management. Other than tha5 I am looking forward to getting rid of the loose skin caused by weight loss and age. Thanks for any clarification! Kaz

Besides losing definition, it tends to prematurely age " https://www.realself.com/question/india-dr-wanted-cheekbone-reduction-jaw-reduction-plz-opinion-face “ Someone with a poorly developed jaw will age much more quickly( often with neck sag) than someone with more regular features.” Dr David Dunaway, craniofacial surgeon.https://www.harleystreetaesthetics.com/_resources/files/media-articles/monthly-publications/tatler-2015.pdf " Too much bone removal can cause disastrous result later in your life ."

  14. Hi ladies!! I am booked in for September this year (2018) for a breast augmentation with Dr Witoon. Are any of you going around this time to Phuket? Also, please share your experiences with me. I am 5’7, 58kg currently a small C cup, deflated from breast feeding. Slight minor sagging from pregnancy, unsure if I’ll need a lift (determining at appointment) think my photos are deceiving but I pass the pencil test... what would you suggest? Would teardrop lift as much as round? Hoping to get to a DD as I want them definitely bigger but am only small frame also. Also need to quit smoking 2 weeks prior and after...any pointers here? Going to be hard! But have no choice, hope I can stay strong, sane and somewhat nice lol!!
  15. Hi all, Just thought I'd post about my journey for anyone interested in going with PIAC, Dr Narupon, or for those of you with similar stats to me Beginning Stats: Age - 29, Height -173cm, Weight - 62kg, Bra Size - 10C, No children. Booking: I booked my surgery straight through PIAC with no issue - I had two friends who had gone directly through PIAC previously with different surgeons and had great results, so I thought I'd try my luck without an agency. I received a response from PIAC within a day or two after sending my photographs and forms, and a recommendation from my surgeon about a week after that. They answered all my questions promptly and willingly changed my schedule several times over when I asked. Choosing My Surgeon: Initially I wanted to have both a rhinoplasty and BA, and the surgeons that specialised in both facial and breast surgery were Dr Rushapol and Dr Narupon. I ended up choosing Dr Narupon based on his gallery pics, various positive reviews and the fact that he was a younger surgeon that might have a fresher idea of what women are desiring in terms of breast shape/look etc these days. In the end I decided against having my rhinoplasty in Thailand though, as I had not seen enough rhino before and afters by my surgeon of choice and I didn't want to feel rushed into a procedure on my face straight after consultation. I have now chosen to have my rhinoplasty at a later date here in Australia after having a lengthy consultation with Dr Layt on the Gold Coast, where all my questions and concerns were answered thoroughly and I have the time to think about my decision. Flights & Transfers: I booked my own flights to Phuket through Qantas/Jetstar with a brief stop over in Singapore each way. The cost was roughly $850 all up return. I arrived in Phuket at 9:30PM the day before my consultation/surgery and found the information desk easily enough where my itinerary specified my transfer would be waiting. Well I waited what seemed like 20 minutes, but in reality it was probably 10, because I started to panic that they'd forgotten me, but eventually a PIAC rep. arrived and escorted me to their car. It took about 45 minutes to drive from the airport to where I was staying in Patong. They picked me up at 9AM sharp the next day and drove me to Phuket International Hospital where my journey really began. My BA Journey: I was ushered into the reception area of the hospital from my transfer car where I filled out basic hospital paperwork. From there I was taken up to level 4 where PIAC is situated. They weighed me and took my blood pressure and then sent me downstairs for a chest x-ray and a blood test. I was the brought back up for my consultation with Dr Narupon. We had a quick discussion about what I wanted to achieve (which was mainly perky/upper pole fullness while going up maybe a size or two in the process. He asked to see any inspiration pictures which I promptly showed him on my iPhone. We then went into a room where he asked me to take of my bra so he could see what he was working with. Now admittedly I didn't think I had horrible boobs, but having yo-yo'd up and down in weight and having previously done exercise/running in poor bras had taken its toll on my once perky C cups - to the point where my upper pole fullness was lacking. My chest is also quite wide, and my torso quite long, which made my boobs look like they were sitting quite low on my chest. Anyway I removed my bra and he said "ooooohhhh this nice natural breast" - which automatically made me think crap I've flown all this way, I'm just being ridiculous! But he assured me we could could get the upper pole fullness I desired with a round silicone implant. Next we tried on sizers in the pointiest bra I have seen in my life, which made it really hard to work out the size I actually wanted. He left me alone to see what I liked, but the nurse awkwardly stuck around, which in hindsight I should have just told her to leave - so I could have a minute to myself to decide. If you are taking your own post-op bras (which I highly recommend you do - because the one they provide you with is pointy, ill-fitting, and scratchy), I suggest you take it into the fitting with you, so you can try it on with the implants instead of the pointy option they provide. I made some mental notes in my head about the sizes I liked and then he measured me up and drew all over me. My breast width was quite wide - 14.5cm (no surprises there due to how wide my chest is). He then explained to me that the best placement for my desired look was over the muscle, which took me completely by surprise as he'd recommended dual plane in his original email and I had done quite a lot of research on that particular placement. I asked him what the difference was, and why he was now recommending overs and he said I had a great amount of tissue for overs and I could achieve exactly the same look as dual plane, but at a lower price, and without having to cut the muscle. I was sold! He suggested that I go mod plus profile or if I wanted the "porn star" look as he put it, I could go high profile ... I stuck with the mod plus's in the end as I wasn't after high projection, just a bit more perk. Due to my wide breast width and my choice of mod plus profile implants, Dr Narupon calculated the highest I could go CC wise was 400. Just as well because after having tried on the sizers I was tossing up between 375-400CC anyway, which Dr Narupon said would make me roughly a DD cup (which was my aim). He said if I was unsure - always go bigger, but in the end I asked him to make the decision between the two in surgery - whichever looked better on my frame. From there I signed all the consent forms and went to pay (with 2 credit cards and my debit card). Well I just about had a heart attack when my first card kept declining. All I could think was I've flown all this way, what am I going to do? The customer service girls were so lovely though and let me call my bank internationally. In the end everything was sorted. I had told all my banks I was travelling internationally, but I had slightly overestimated the amount that was on one of them, hence why it kept declining. We got there in the end though - crisis averted! After the payment fiasco I was taken to my room, where I quickly set up my phone and charger near my bedside and locked away my valuables. I removed all my piercings and a nurse asked me to strip down nude and she assisted me with my hospital garments. I was then canulated ... twice as she broke the first vein. It hurt a little more than I expected, but nothing too traumatic. I was then connected to some IV fluids and wheeled down pretty much straight away to theatre. The anaesthetist asked me a bunch of questions and i swear I was asked 3 times whether I could remove my $6500 braces .... the answer was NO, but they seemed ok with that. They then strapped me to the table like jesus to the cross and placed an oxygen mask over my face. I was pretty pissed off to be honest as I never saw my surgeon before they put me under, which I was told I would if I had any final questions. Anyhow I came to 3-ish hours later either vomiting, or having the tube removed, or both simultaneously, it was hard to tell. I think I slept for a little bit, but all I could think was how uncomfortable my head was - and I realised I had no pillow. I managed to wave a nurse down sitting in the corner of the room and raspily groaned that I wanted a pillow. She gave me a blanket to put under my head and I promptly threw up all over my arm and the blood pressure cuff attached to it. I flailed my arm around until they cleaned me up and told me to stop moving. Clearly I am not a good PACU patient! Not long after this they wheeled me back to my room where they transferred me across to my hospital bed - yep that hurt. Then they sat the bed up, where-upon I spewed again, and again into a kidney dish. I then wanted to go to the toilet straight away, which they assisted me to do. They then left me to snooze for a bit, coming in and out doing obs, giving me pills, and delivering food. I tried a mouthful of mashed potato - threw that up. Later a mouthful of watermelon - threw that up. I gave up on food after that. I managed to get myself up a couple of times through the night with great difficulty. As a nurse myself, I was very reluctant to call for help, as I know the sooner you are doing things for yourself the better. I was however in a lot of pain, and the meds they were giving me just weren't cutting it. I asked what I was getting and the answer was an anti-inflammatory I had never heard of, diazepam (valium) for sleep, which I was ok with, and an equivalent to panadeine for pain. I was not impressed. I asked several times over for endone and was ignored each time. Finally the next morning after I managed to contain breakfast, the PIAC co-ordinator came by. My emotions got the better of me and I broke down in tears. I told her the nurses weren't listening to me and I wanted a stronger pain-killer. She said she would see the doctor. Dr Narupon came in late that afternoon, cut off my bandages, yanked out my drains, and the nurses strapped me into an ugly pointy bra. He told me I could go home later that evening and he would come see me before I left. I asked him for endone (oxycodone) at the time and if he could write me up a prescription for when I left, he ummed and ahhed and then said yes we have this drug. I buzzed the nurse straight after this for my endone and she gave me a tablet which looked different from the others I'd been given (did't look like what I'd seen in Aus, but shapes and colours differ with brands). I said "is this endone?" and she said "yes yes" - so I took it. Half an hour later a nurse came into my room and asked if I was ready to go. I said "no - the Dr said he'd come back later this evening", to which she responded - "no, you can go now." I found this extremely odd, but I packed up my things and they took me downstairs to pick up my meds from pharmacy. I looked at everything they gave me - still no endone. I said to the pharmacist, "there's no end one here - the Dr said he would write me up for some." After calling the Dr, she said "we don't stock oxcodone in this hospital", which majorly pissed me off, because that meant I had been lied to by the nurse upstairs, and the Dr. They told me they could give me a morphine based oral pain-killer, which I decided against as I was not willing to go to that level. After this they drove me to my new hotel. I did not see Dr Narupon again until my check-up. I got zero instructions on how to care for myself for the week leading up to my check-up, which I found highly unprofessional. Luckily I am a surgical nurse and have post-operative knowledge, but at the same time, I don't deal with breast augmentation patients, so I was still quite in the dark. The pamphlet I was given gave me some indication of post-op care, but my saviour was my friend LLwoody, who I met on this forum. She had her BA 3 days before me with Dr Narupon and was lucky enough to have been given all post-op instructions and I was able to ask her a bajillion questions. Week 1 Post-Op: As soon as I got back to my hotel I took the hideous nanna bra off and had a look at my boobs. Holy they looked big. I immediately thought what have I done?, but I reminded myself it was a lot of fluid and swelling and they would go down. I promptly strapped myself into my 100 times more comfortable Tonserio bra that I had ordered (with great difficulty, but well worth it) from the states. I then sussed out my room and decided on a night in with room service. After that I settled in for the night with a ramp of pillows behind my back, because I no longer had the luxury of a remote controlled bed. I had such a wonderful sleep, but holy hell getting up in the morning was a mission. Morning boob is awful! I had sharp shooting pains mainly in my left boob and the feeling when you first sit fully upright and all the fluid drains to the bottom of your boobs is just horrible. It's like that for a good 5 days, but after that it begins to subside. My best recommendation is stack your pillows the night before, hold onto your boobs in the morning and lift with your abs. It still hurts like hell, but it lessens the blow. I took all my pills religiously until my antibiotics finished, and added some laxatives I had, shall we say "borrowed" from work before I left, as I knew the post-op process and the pain meds would make me bloated and constipated. I was right, I didn't poop for 3 whole days and I looked like a puffy little balloon. Of course the moment I did need to go I was in the middle of Jungceylon shopping mall! I found a toilet as fast as I could, where I waited uncomfortably in line behind 4 others and then finally ... relief. I was smug - yes I'd pooped! I reached to my left for the toliet paper - nope no dispenser there ... must be on the right - nope ... must be on the back wall - NOPE!!! Just FYI at Jungceylon they keep their TP on the OUTSIDE of the toilet! That was a gross little learning curve. After 6 days on my own, my friend arrived just as I was starting to feel a lot more myself. The initial 5 days were a bit of a roller-coaster of emotions - Did I go too big? No maybe they're too small? Should I have done this at all? My boobs hurt. I can't poop. Now I'm pooping too much. My tummy is heavy, and fat, and bloated, and I feel sick. Wahhhhhhhhh! Don't get me wrong, you can still go out and do stuff, your head and body is just a little bit of a fricken' mess ... well at least it was for me anyway. On Day 7, my friend and I caught my transfer to the hospital to see Dr Narupon and have my stitches taken out. I was so ready for new dressings, as my current ones were starting to peel back, and I didn't want any nasties getting in. The nurses removed my old dressings and Dr N. came and had a look. He said I should wear my post-op bra morning and night for another month. He said I could exercise in a month, start wearing underwires in a month, basically the answer to most things was one month. He did tell me that I didn't really need to massage my boobs too much though, if at all, as they were really quite soft already due to the tissue I already had - something which I'm just quietly quite proud of. Afterwards the nurses took my stitches out and replaced my dressings. I got my friend to take some photos of my suture lines prior (as I couldn't see them). They don't look too bad. A little red and bruised, and slightly puckered, but I'm hoping they'll heal well. That's All Folks (for now ...): Anyway sorry for the novel, but I hope it helps some of you. I'll be putting pictures up in my gallery shortly, so feel free to FR request me to have a look, or if you have any questions feel free to ask. I know I made the hospital experience sound awful - it really wasn't all that bad and so far I'm soooo happy with my results, I think I just expected more from a nurse's perspective. I will definitely be reflecting on my surgical experience as a patient and utilising it with my future patients when I go back to work.
  16. 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
  17. Hi to all, Over the past 18 months I have been to a four plastic surgeons here in Newcastle and Sydney because I hate my tummy (have done forever even at my skiniest) and I wanted to have it changed.... As you can imagine the cost was ridiculous and very unaffordable especially now that medicare won't cover it, therefore my private health insurance won't either... After a huge amount of research I dumped the idea very disappointed. A few months ago I came across NIB options. They offer plastic surgery overseas by Australian peer reviewed plastic surgeons. They also offer peer reviewed hospitals with a twelve month after care whereby if anything goes wrong then an Australian board certified plastic surgeon will fix it here in Australia free of charge.... Plus they will only work with a small number of plastic surgeons overseas. With that I decided to look into it..... I researched a crap load over and over again and decided to get a quote.... I was pleasantly surprised when the quote came back almost a third of the cost of what the cost would be in Australia...The quote was based on a internationally board certified plastic surgeon in Phuket for a tummy tuck.... NIB Options have asked for a testimonial good or bad in order for me to receive a 20% discount (this was a deal just recently, not sure if they are still offering this), which for me is a good thing.... Clearly they are trying to market themselves as there are not a lot of reviews on the company.... Plus the Dr Veeerwat does a consult first on one day and gives me one day to think about the surgery prior to going under the knife... Added bonus is that I can cancel at anytime and receive a full refund and yes at times I think I should because I am so frigging nervous at different stages. I am also impressed by the guarantee that the Phuket International Hospital gives as well!! So I am booked in for the procedure at the end of this month.... yes you guessed it I am one of those Australians whom due to the Medicare changes I am heading overseas to have my procedure done!!!! I am hugely scared, more so by the pain but as I have read many many times over the outcome is worth the pain - thank you for all you girls that have been writing so positively about this!!! By the way, I am not being paid by NIB Options or forced to write about the company but I must say their offer is the only reason why I am going to Thailand due to the comfort they make me feel with their after care policy!! From the outset Claire at NIB Options has been amazing without no sales push what so ever and has responded promptly every time I contact her!! So far I have contacted Dr Veerawat directly about spray tanning and the length of time I have to wait to swim and he has been very prompt to reply to these emails as well. I must say, I haven't seen a lot of his work reviewed, specifically on Tummy Tucks but I am more than comfortable with his CV and his achievements so far anyway. The reviews I have seen are very positive but not necessarily related to Tummy Tucks. I will try and update as much as I can on my journey... I have a little one and a business to run so at times I am flat out but I hope to post as much as I can to keep you informed of my progress just like other wonderful informative people have done on this forum. Hopefully talk soon!!!!
  18. Hi ladies, I have paid my deposit for breast augmentation through Cosmeditour in Thailand. I'm going for a tear-drop implant. I am not sure how big I could go, i'm only 5'feet tall and 42 kgs in weight. My breast is really small like 32AA or 32A. I have not finalised a surgery date yet but it will be between May or June next year. I have little idea yet what to expect or what to do beforehand as it was just 3 weeks ago I started contemplating that maybe I should get a boob done anyway to treat myself to wear a pair of bikinis with nice boobies! Haha (wild dream I never thought I would get by next year haha) The agent from Cosmeditour recommended Dr V I have two overseas holiday prior May/June2018 so now starting to save up as well to shop for some clothes haah i think i'm too excited lol
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. Hi everyone! First post here... Just a bit of background on me, I am so indecisive when I have options and even after hours of research on rhinoplasty I can't come to a conclusion on whether to travel Thailand or stay locally for the surgery. I guess what I am really weighing up is cost for service. There are obviously shocking surgeons in any country, except in Australia they seem to be shocking and still expensive! Has anyone here had experience with getting rhinoplasty in Thailand or even both Thailand and Australia? How much was the price difference really? If you had been to Thailand, where did you go, what surgeon and did you go through an agency like cosmeditours etc.? I would actually prefer to book my own travel and accommodation but not sure if any of these agencies let you do that? What was your post-op care like and how is your recovery? I have heard the whole service experience over there is a million times better than here... true? Anyone know of a surgeon who has heaps of before & after photos in Thailand? Thank you all!
  23. Had rhinoplasty and septoplasty done by dr pipayas in Thailand ppsi hospital almost a year ago now I'm devastated with the results nose looked much better before the nose does not suit my face and people said your face looks really different and looked at me very weirdly I cried the whole time I was in Thailand especially when the cast was removed and I got to see what I had done to my face I got told it was still swollen and would go down 10 months later and my nose has not changed at all. I'm really scared to get a nose job to fix it I'm not sure what to do. I'm looking for any recommendations of people who have been very unhappy with their surgery and what they did to fix this and any info on plastic surgeons for nose correction surgery. Currently I am left with what looks like a swollen tip my nose gets blocked I can't breathe any better if anything it's worse and it looks like I have a droopy nose (hanging columella not to mention it looks wonky. I have attached photos
  24. Hello all, first let me say I'm a guy. There is a male section with only one old thread. I have lost 52ish kg through just diet and exercise started in mid 2012 Back to the topic. To those who have gone to Thailand through a agency or directly and they quoted you a price, did they change it once at consult? I am quoted $5925 for surgery includes 5 nights & hotel 10. Flights I booked for $850 with Malaysia airlines because I didn't want to deal with a budget airline returning. I have heard good things about Dr. Narupon but people going over do it for cost so it is a concern. I am not sure on the rules for naming the agency but I will if anyone is interested. The agency requests full payment two weeks before departure and it's under 30 days now. Thanks
  25. Hi everyone! I've booked my Rhinoplasty and Breast Augmentation with Dr Montien in Bangkok, Thailand for February 2017! I was hoping some of you could share your experiences and any stories you may have as I am a little nervous about the procedure! I would love to see some pictures too! I've been wanting my nose to be a lot smaller, more defined and more feminine for a very long time and I'm finally going ahead with it, however i'm a little apprehensive as to how my nose will actually turn out! Thank you in advance and I look forward to hearing your stories!
