Surgery refused

Recommended Posts

My current boobs are rather small and look lost on my large frame, they were bigger before I lost weight, but every time I shift a Kg it comes off my boobs. After examining my pictures PIAC have refused surgery because they cannot garentee a good result, the surgeon has said I suffer from "Severe" Tuberous breasts, but I've looked into this condition, and many pictures of women with this kind of breast and I don't see any resemblance to my own so I'm extremely confused. I plan on getting many second opinions, I've already contacted the Bangkok Phuket hospital, but if anyone has any other reccomendations for me I'd be very grateful, if you had little breast tissue and breast spread quite far apart on your chest please recommend your surgeon to me.

Thanks.

Onee-Chan, definitely get some other opinions. I've read similar comments on the forums from girls who have gone on to find a surgeon who can get results. Try a consult with an Aussie surgeon you can see. This might give you background info before you try an overseas surgeon again. There are a few who do free initial consults.

Hi there, just like to share my recent experience with PIAC too. I too was rejected for the same reason- that they could not promise a good result. I forwarded my pics of my face and side profile as my eyes are sagging a bit and my brows are all out of whack and not sitting where they used too :(((

(im 42)... I hardly think im a hard case! !!! Im in pretty good shape to most just need a tweek really.....so i wouldnt worry too much it just tells me there surgeons cant be that good!!!.

Ive seen Dr Piyapas's work and he is fantastic, Good luck and up yours PIAC- your not getting my money and who do you actually perform surgery on?????

Do not consider an 'opinion' of a photograph as the same as a 'consultation'

Unless you actually have your physical issue examined by a qualified physician in PERSON then the opinion is just that..an 'opinion' and it's of virtually no merit.

I agree with Mr stag.. get a face -to - face (better still get two) consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon (not a nurse, not a cosmetic doctorand definately not an email with a couple of snaps)..additionally there are 'specialists' who do specific surgery complications.....ask about on the forum here.....

I had mine done in Bangok and am very similar to your description but not tuberous breasts, very widely spaced, no tissue in upper breast and not even an A cup, my result is great! I didn't go over 300cc and they look natural. :) good luck!

Hi there,

I was refused surgery by a cosmetic surgeon in sydeny called Dr Mason. I have since seen 2 other surgeons that are more then happy to give my tuberous breasts a go and both have different ways of wanting to proceed. I am also seeking 2 more opinions to be sure I know what I'm getting into.

Keep hunting around and I'm sure you'll have no problem getting a lovely new set:)

I had my BA done at PIAC and they were great ..... did you ask was it all Dr At PIAC that had a look at your pics and decided not to touch you or was it just one Dr that made the decision...

Maybe start a thread or search for ladies on here with the same ( tuberous breast ) as you that you could talk too .... Or better still like someone said see a surgeon in Australia for there recommendation....

So thank you to everyone for your encouragement and advice.

In the end I did contact Dr Poomee and he agreed to a consult and surgery, I was all booked in for the 5th, and my consultation was going to be this Friday.

Now however, one day before my consult, when I'm already in Bangkok, he has canceled all of my appointments. This sudden cancellation came after I e-mailed him some remaining concerns of mine and inquired further about the type of implants he uses. Perhaps I ask to many questions, but no clear reason was given as to why, or which of these questions caused him to take me off the lists. He just stated that he no longer felt comfortable being my surgeon and suggested that I find another surgeon. Find another surgeon? A good and reputable surgeon who is free within the next week? This is my time off work Now, I am here, right Now. I had also already purchased my Travel Medical insurance with Dr Poomee's hospital and details on the policy. This money is now all gone, and my time is wasted.

I will try again in some months time when I get my confidence back and save up some more leave from work, but this was a really cruel thing to do to someone who was simply trying to find out all the information and options she could because she was nervous about undergoing her first surgery. That is certainly my opinion on these recent events. And I have the e-mails to prove that the above claims made by me are quite true should anyone care to worry about defamation.

Oh you poor thing :(

I can understand that a surgeon would turn down a job they don't feel confident they could do justice to. Much better than taking your money, and doing a crap job.

I have heard good things about Dr Poomee, but I think doing what he has done is totally unprofessional. He should at least have honoured his consultation with you. Is there no way you can get in to see him while you are there?

Really sorry this has happened to you.

I also could have understood if his problem was with his confidence to do a good job, I never wanted a surgeon who would do something like that. But he accepted the jobs based on the pictues and never even physically examined me so I don't think he was worried about his ability. What's upset me here is that he would do this just because of my inquiries and so close to the date after all the arrangements have been made.

My first thought was to quickly apologise for asking questions and beg him not to cancel, but after a moment of calming myself I accepted it and told him to never mind, even if he did give into my begging and see me how could I trust him now that I'm scared to question him?

On a positive note, Thailand is beautiful!

That's just terrible. I have heard that he is picky with his patients and doesn't want to operate on anyone that wants a perfect result. I think letting you know now is totally unprofessional. I know he will be there on Friday afternoon if you want to go in and meet him face to face to discuss. I have to say I am not totally happy with my results and he certainly charges a lot to operate. Can you use your time in Bangkok to have consults with other surgeons? I wanted dr preeyaphas but he refused me and I hear great things about dr suchart. If you do decide to try and have a consult with Poomee on Friday let me know as I'll be the at 2:30 and we could go for a pad Thai or coconut water after.

Also, you shouldn't have to apologise for asking questions. It is a huge decision to make, especially as it is your first surgery. It's your body and you need to be well informed to make the right choices for you, so you should ask questions.

Can you not seek compensation for your insurance/flights/hotel? After all, you spent all that money to consult with him, and he just cancels by email once you are already out there, so he should be liable.

I'm glad you are enjoying beautiful Thailand though.

OMG I can't believe what I'm reading.... what a total arsehole!!!!!!

My girlfriend used a surgeon by the name of Dr Nond....he was amazing could you try and see him? My girlfriend also works for Global health travel if you wanted to give them a try and see if you can get in with him or any other decent surgeon?

oh my gosh this is absolutely awful, i am so sorry this has happened to you, NO offense to the surgeon but what he did was completely unprofessional, what a jerk.

Would you consider having your breast done back here in Australia? If your breast are considered tuberous then you would most likely be entitled to some medicare rebates etc so it might not cost you as much as you think?

i hope you get to enjoy the rest of your holiday, im actually really gutted for you, i cant imagine what a let down you are feeling right now

What a shocking thing to do! You poor thing :( Glad though you are enjoying Thailand...it is magical. I would also add to the other girls suggestions to contact Racheal at Bangkok makeovers (think they use Bangkok Hospital). At such short notice you may find people have cancelled for one reason or another , and there may be some excellent surgeons available.

Good luck, and spend some time contacting agencies and hospitals, and it all may work out......crossing my fingers for you

Oh no! i am so sorry to hear this has happened to you! It sounds to me like he mistakenly thought your emails were saying you wanted a perfect result and felt he couldnt give you that (i had some miscommunications via email with my surgeon leading up to my surgery - very stressful and upsetting), but it is so unfair of him to cancel without at least seeing you in person first :(

the other girls have made some great suggestions! hopefully something works out for you

Aw I'm so sorry to hear this!!

Have you tried contacting other surgeons there?

There are plenty of excellent docs who I'm sure would be able to give you beautiful breasts.

I know it's last minute and you might not be able to get in but it's worth a try anyway.

Again, I'm sorry you're having to go through this. Good luck. xx

Sorry to hijack this thread but katzmagik, do you have any pics up?

I'm very similar to you and would love to see your result. :)

Everyones' support and concern is really comforting.

I have sent out inquiries to Yanhee (for Dr Greechart) and Bangkok hospital (for Dr Piyapas) and also sent details of my situation to Global Health Travel & Rachel. I don't hold any serious hope that someone will be able to fit me in at this point, but you have to try right?

Thanks everyone!

Dr Greechart did agree to a consult but then yesterday I was bitten by a monkey! Seriously universe?

So I'm on a course of rabies shots and Dr Greechart has suggested I finish those and then rest up for a month or two before having surgery.

I'm not stressing out or worried anymore, just amused by the whole situation. Try again in a few months!!

Did anyone else have this much fun trying to organise theirs?
