well, if you have read each and every page of this thread, i am actually the user of "envyme" who shared my experience wirh nara before but i have long abandoned that acc, forgotten the login pword, thus here i am, envyme2.
I have liposuction with 3 main doctors that were highly raved about.
1) Dr Nara
2) Dr Arthur (medan)
3) Dr Prinya
I am overweight but not to the extend of obese.
I've done lipo with dr nara very long ago. if i am not wrong, it's 2009.
areas done: Arms, thigh & tummy.
compression garment: self-prepared.
- waiting time @ clinic: very short.
- consultation: simple english. photo taking.
incision - abt 1cm, non-dissolvable sticthes
booked 3 days of appt with him becos he only do 1 area/day.
i dont feel pain during the procedure.
little waiting time becos i have booked the appt, dr nara was expecting me, hence i went in for consultation and did it right away.
i am very unsatisfied with the results.
for my arms, he only took fats in between my upper arms(near armpit) and elbow. so now my upper arms and elbows are bulging. if ur imagination is good, think it as the bow & arrow's bow. yes,
tummy was uneven. super uneven.
thigh was the worst, he only did UPPER FRONT thigh. it's like 1/2 of the front thigh. so my lower front thigh is full of fats while my upper thigh is much flatter. can u imagine how weird it looks?
dont ask me why didnt i ask nara abt it during my 3days there. after lipo, u feel sore, swollen n bruised. you cant determine the results and the areas he really did on.moreover i'm withstanding 3 areas of pain altogether.
I dont know how many liters of fats he took becos he never show me, i wake up from the procedure n straight away went back to rest @ hotel.
in 2010, i chance upon dr arthur in medan from other forum, he just started out and used a blogger to advertise for him. he charges only $450/area as promo to compete with nara's popularity.
areas done: inner & front thigh
compression garment: self-prepared.
- waiting time @ clinic: immediate.
- consultation: perfect english as he is a surgeon in sg too. photo taking.
incision: 5mm hole, no stitch, drainage to be done daily by their nurse.
his results from his website was very promising. u can see the final result on post op day 1 immediately before the swell n bruise kicks in.
i was like wow. why not give it a try again?
i booked appt and flew over to medan, during conulstation, he squeezed my thigh fats very hard with an irritated look and said that my thigh has too much fats and that he would have rejected me if he knew as he cant tell from the pictures i've sent him.
felt devastated, hurt & insulted. wont you?
since I've alr flew there, he told me he will do partial parts for me instead of the pre-agreed "3D-all thigh areas".
he knew about my experience with nara, it was one of the reason he is so interested for me to go over as he can use me as his case studies to discriminate nara.
during consultation he kept on emphasizing how silly people are to go to hatyai, its insane to do only 1 area/day, 3 areas for 3 days and that we will actually die from it. he had a few patients who also went to nara before and he kept on complaining how lousy nara's skill was.
he said a sentence which i wil nv forget:" this is what ppl get from cheap price" and shook his head.
he then showed his nurses the results on me done by nara and smirked how badly it was done.
personally i felt that a doc shouldn't give such comments on other docs. i just felt its not right.
during the procedure, did not feel much pain but did feel something is going on. after its done, he showed me the amt of fats, was about 3 liters. I looked at my thigh and found it significantly much smaller. i was so happy!
but i still do not have thigh gap, they are still touching.
and then i realized actually my bulging lower front thigh which nara did not lipo was still "untouched". sigh.
arthur ask me to go back for other areas at least 1 mth later.
i didnt go back anymore thereafter. he kept on increasing the price every month and he still do. it is now $1300/area (i did $450/area back then).
and i didnt really like him as i felt that he is damn arrogant.
now, the last part - DR PRINYA which most of you must be anticipating about.
went to him in 2013, yes kinda recent.
areas done: tummy, hips, thigh
compression garment: self-prepared.
- waiting time @ clinic: extremely long and unacceptable!
- consultation: quite good english. no photo taking.
incision: 2cm, non-dissolvable stitches.
i went TWICE to him and will never go back anymore.
I've booked appt thru email, he asked me to reach the clinic by 9am which I did. there was one girl before me. I've waited 45mins before I get to see prinya personally. yes he is nice and gentle. he checked my areas and decided to do upper, lower tummy & hips - 3 areas.
i opted for traditional lipo.
surgery started immediately right after.
the procedure was DAMN PAINFUL! I was only 1/2 aslp but how can I sleep when it's so painful? I kept on telling him it is painful. it felt like that area wasn't numb or the sedation was gone.
all he can say was sorry and the nurses was holding me down and let me grabbed on their hands while i moaned away in great pain.
I teared so much. finally it was done, they wore the compression garment for me. showed me the amt of fats taken. 2.6 liters.
it was difficult to call for tuktuk outside their clinic. they have liaise with 1 tuktuk service but it wasnt unavailable on that day.
back to sg, post op 5days and i realized he didnt touch on my lower tummy AT ALL. my hips are only like 20% smaller than before since it has been 6mths alr. upper tummy wasn't flat, its 60% smaller than before.
sigh. there are 2 incision on my back hips, they didnt heal well, now its very dark brown scar. only time can make them fade.
which was end of dec 2013, i've decided to bring my aunt for eyelid and eyebag surgery since i've read that his review on those are good plus he is a really nice, patient and friendly doct. best among the 3 in terms of attitude.
since im going, i've decided to do lipo for outer thigh especially on the lower thigh and this time opt for vaser since he said it is less pain and better tho is $1200/area.
we reached there on the dot 9am. but the clinic was so crowded! omg.
I've waited for 1 & 1/2 hour before prinya's wife came out and ask me to show them the email for this appt.
after showing them on my phone, they looked thru their appt book and indeed my name was there. mrs prinya paused for awhile as if she was on deep thoughts and then told me that they can't do surgery for us today. i was like wtf? why?
she said today's appt is FULL and that doc wil be leaving in the afternoon for meeting. but they can do for us the next day.
I continued to say but i have made the appt, my name is there, prinya confirmed it in the email! mrs prinya didnt even apologize but repeated her explanation, this time add on saying there are 2 breast aug surgery this morning.
pissed off, i went back to the hotel.
next day morning, went there at 8.30am. this time we only waited for 15mins. after consultation, both me and my aunt went on to prepare for surgery.
he did my aunt first, while they put me to sleep on the other room. i rmb it was 9.20am before i fall aslp (there is a big clock on the wall).
i was almost awake by 11.30am and it was then dr prinya came in. he started to perform the surgery. i was like WTH, u did nth while i was sleeping during that 2 hours and perform only when i wake up?!
pain wise was really less painful than the first time BUT it is still painful. it really feels like some area was numb while the rest aren't. the feeling is so different when he insert the tube to suck on those areas. so definitely i can tell it's not numb and i am freakin painful!
I demanded for more sedation and i kept on repeating very painful and i am nt sleepy anymore.
they did give me, but it doesnt help much but at least i dont tear nor moan anymore. just kept on squeezing the nurse's hands.
fyi, i have high threshold for pain.
finally it was done, the fats taken was only 1.6 liters! so little!
my incision didnt heal well again. 4 incisions and 3 are infected. hv pus and all. ugly scars again. its 2cm okay.
results wise, lower thigh bulging area finally gone BUT my upper outer thigh was untouched. he even drew the areas he will be doing but end up its always not as what he described.
i really had enough of him, given him 2nd chance, both trad n vaser lipo failed me. i've decided no lipo anymore.
well for my aunt's eyes, they were very uneven. still have abt 10% eyebags now. now one side of her eye is bigger than the other. she is less confident n happy now while im feeling really guilty as i intro-ed her to prinya. sigh..
we were thinking if we wants to req for a revision from prinya for free or to look for other surgeons to handle her eyes as we really do not have much confidence with prinya anymore AND his waiting time for appt was really horrible!
pls beware, he asked ALL his patients to come at the same time 9am. it's like a first come first serve tho u have appt pre-fixed. it seems that he do not limit his patient for the day. everyone who came just sat there, waiting for eternity till their names are being called.
i can never forget the experience with prinya that i was being sent away when my appt was confirmed both on my email and THEIR appt book, best thing is they only told us 1 & 1/2 hr later while we waited for NOTHING.
I've taken the effort to type all my experience here, purpose is to share with you the pros n cons as all i've read about them are the good side.
All that i've shared are true facts and i do not gain anything from framing the doctors.
lastly, pls ask me anything you want except for asking pictures/anything that might disclose my identity. I wish to remain anonymous. thanks.
Hi I am going to do thigh liposuction with dr arthur in few months time, would like to know more information before finalize my trip to medan. This the result effective? Like how many inches did you lose from your thigh?
