Hi 

I'm living in Melbourne and want to go to Thailand to have my breast augmentation done. After reading around on the web and talking to different people, I'm feeling pretty confident to go through the Beauty Med Thailand agency. They have recommended me to go to Phuket International Hospital and have the surgery done by Dr. Narupon Rojanapithayakorn. 

Does anyone here have any reviews or feedback about the agency, hospital and/or surgeon?

Thank you!

Any hospital whether it is abroad or in Australia can and will have it's downsides. The one hospital I can't pick a fault with though is Phuket International. The above links focus on Bangkok hospital. 

Phuket Internationak is clean, runs like clock works. The nurses are amazing, kind and so professional. The surgeons are highly qualified and are just as good, if not better than some of the surgeons in Australia.

Dr Narupon is brilliant and I have seen some amazing results on the forum (I had BL + BA with Dr Boonchai, December 2015). 

When you book your surgery they will ask you to stay for a recommended time period, mine was 14 days. 

The above links show some really scary stories but I have seen the same kind of incidents occur with girls who have had surgery in Australia and paid twice as much money. Unfortunately there is no guarantee but I feel like you come pretty close to one at PIAC. 

Goodluck :)

Hi @Kaba21 i have to agree with  @MyNewBoobs ... there are plenty of Australian horror stories too. 

 

I chose to go through PIAC not because if the price but because i actually felt they offered more qualified surgeons woth better care. I went with dr. Narupon as he is an 'young' up and commer, had done placements in texas and japan and i loked the look of his work. 

I went by myself. Was looked after amazingly by the staff and stayed overnoght woth my drains in (not doscharged and left to my own devices like oz hospitals) and felt safe the whole time

 I honestly feel that Thai health care puts oz to shame.

Feel free to ask me any more questions but im over the moon with my journey and the results its given me :)

Of course ultimately its a lersonal decision and i encourage you to research research research!

Hi Dominique. I'm thinking of getting a BA through Dr Narupon. How did you go about booking it all. Did you use an agency or book direct through the hospital. I'm trying to keep costs down. I'm also wondering what your recovery time was....did you heal quickly as I'm worried about taking too much time off work. Sorry about all the questions...i am looking these questions up on other threads but am interested in how you found your experience with Dr N . Thanks

Hi Milkers

I didn't see Dr Narupon but I did see Dr Boonchai. 

If you want to keep costs down I would advise you to book your surgery through the hospital directly, don't go through a cosmetic travel agent. 

We also found our accommodation on air bnb. It was a hotel but the price was much less than others in the area and it was a lovely hotel. Lemonade Phuket in Chalong. 

I had a BL + BA on the 21st December and went back to work on 11th January with no problems, but i do have an office job that does not require any lifting etc. 

Dominque will be able to give you some feed back on Dr Narupon. I know there is one girl on the forum who saw Dr Narupon and her results are incredible, her username is DroopyLou, you should be able to search for her.

Good luck with everything :)

I agree with all the girls about PIAC.... They beat our Aussie hospitals for sure without a doubt ...I have been to PIAC twice for surgery 1st time BA In 2012 and Nov this year for a TT with DR Boonchai and have never had a problem and if I was worried about anything I emailed them and within a few hours I had a reply  ....

I booked it all myself direct with the hospital all went well ....

I'm pretty sure all the surgeons at PIAC are plastic surgeons not cosmetic surgeons like a lot in Australia , from what i have read plastic surgeons have another 7 years of study on cosmetic surgeons so any Dr at PIAC you will be in good hands ...

Hospital is clean all staff are exceptional,on time all the time from the beginning to the end....

Anyway Goodluck girls

@Truth I totally empathise with your story and I'm sorry for what you've had to go through but I disagree what you have to say and I think it's unfair your trying to scare someone out of something that could potentially make them happier than they have ever been before. 

Having a BL + BA is something I have wanted since I was 18 years old and at the age of 27 I decided to act and 18 months ago I began my research, THOROUGH research.

Through my research I discovered Dr Rungkit and Bangpakok9 International Hospital had several particularly bad reviews and the more and more I read it was clear this was not a hospital and surgeon I would trust with my life. 

I continued my research and continued to research Phuket International Hospital + PIAC and came across very few bad reviews, and those that were negative were not life threatening or health related, they focused on customer service.

You should never ever rely on the hospitals information you need to do your own research. If it says the surgeon has released a paper, find the paper. If it says the surgeon has completed study overseas find evidence of this or request evidence. The website always lists the university the surgeon attended and their graduation date, this can be easily confirmed by finding the graduation list for that university in that particular year, and If it says they are a member of a particular board, find the board and find their name.

In regards to people buying fake degree's, i think thats a bit of baloney. Regardless of whether you have a fake piece of paper you can't pretend to be a plastic surgeon and I just can't see that happening. 

Sure Thailand doesn't have the tight regulations Australia has but Australia still has corruption and as long as you have money you can usually buy your way out of a bad situation. 

I just think it's so unfair to say NO to surgery abroad when I can honestly say Phuket International Hospital is absolutely amazing.

Unfortunately and as awful as this sounds, if something does go wrong, if we get an infection, if we end up ill, if we end up botched, we have no one to blame but ourselves because that is a risk we have chosen to take. 

Every hospital whether local, interstate or overseas has a risks and complications page that should be read by anyone considering surgery, because each risk and complication is a possibility. 

I have seen so many women on this forum who have had surgery in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane who have developed life threatening infections, golden staph and some women who have had to have their implants removed. It's shocking and terrifying but it can happen anywhere but I will say again and again I can't see anything like this every happening at Phuket International and I think anyone else who has been there would be agree with me. 

TCI in Sydney has had two women in the last 24 months go into cardiac arrest, both women could have died. During my research I found a medical journal that stated Phuket International hospital, to this day has not had one death that has been the result of elective plastic surgery or one death that has been related to the use of GA. 

Should I choose to have further surgery again in the future, regardless of price, I would choose PIAC every time and I think if you had of done just a bit more research you most definitely would not have chosen Bangpakok9 and Dr Rungkit.

I'm sorry @Truth I have to say something else. I've looked through your activity log just out of curiosity and almost every single contribution you have made to the forum has been negative. 

Women have shared their positive experiences, some even posting their transformations which look incredible, but you will then post a story about a negative experience and a photo of a transformation gone wrong. 

It just seems so negative and I feel as though just because you have had a bad experience you feel as though you need to scare the life out of everyone. The three links that you've posted above, you've posted those same horror storied multiple times on different threads. 

I don't feel as though you should let your negative experience ruin it for other girls on the forum. Once again I totally sympathise with you but you it's not okay for you to be so negative all the time. 

I just had to put that out there.

You didn't learn the hard way, unfortunately you were just unlucky. There are thousands of girls on here who have had their surgery overseas and would do it again in a heart beat .

If girls want to find the horror stories and bad reviews they can, their easy enough to find, but if their asking for advise about a specific hospital and a specific surgeon we should give them the advise they've  asked for. 

The 3 links you posted are all for Dr Ringkit and you've posted the same links multiple times in multiple threads on multiple websites and forums so I assumed he was your surgeon. 

If someone asks about that Doctor or the hospital you went to give them your advise by all means.

Everyone knows there's a pretty side and a scary side. You could have had the same issue in Australia, sure the aftercare may have been better and legal action may have been easier but surely you knew by going to Thailand for surgery if anything went wrong these things would be near impossible, but again that's the choice you made.

I don't want to argue and please believe me when I say that, I just don't want you to turn the forum into a personal vendetta and try to frighten everyone interested in going to Thailand for surgery. 

All I'm saying is elective surgery is risky business regardless of where it is performed, there's dodgy surgeons and shitty hospitals everywhere. There's horror stories and inspiring stories. You could end with your dream boobs or your worst nightmare but we've took the risk and all you can do is hope luck is on your side.

@truth At the end of the day these are all risks you should be well aware of before having surgery overseas and their risks you have to be willing to be responsible for should you choose to have surgery overseas.

Everyone knows the health systems in our home countries won't help us should something go wrong. Everyone knows once you leave the country you've have surgery in it's going to be hard to communicate any problems and issues.

It is a matter of luck because nothing in life is guaranteed. It doesn't just come down to the hospital or surgeon, it also comes down to how our body reacts to the surgery and whether or not it accepts the implants.

There are thousands of variables everyone should consider, and hundreds of consequences to be considered too. 

I'm going to end the conversation because we're going around in circles. Be realistic and consider the consequences because complications can and will happen to some of us and we need be accountable for our actions. You chose to ahead with the surgery knowing what could go wrong and that if something did go wrong, treatment in your home country would be near impossible.
