hello xiaobai! so happy for ur new nose... hehee....
i decided to go n find dr sukit too! going on mid apr... alr emailed him my pics n ask for opinions... as wat he replied from mails can see he is quite a nice doc... hehe... anyay can u tell me more abt ur nose? recovery time? how long u stay at BKK? after surgery any pain blah blah... so they wrap up ur nose or?? lol.. sorry ah... so much questions coz very eager to noe n prepare myself too! hope to hear from u soon!! thanks!
Good to hear that u will go to him for your nose.Gd choice!Dun do in sg i think. No offence to anyone but i think bkk docs r more experienced in this. IN bkk, nose implant or plastic surgery is so normal and common. Not like sg, if u actually see someone with plastic face, everyone will go like"Wah, she/he went for plastic surgery !Blah,blah blah" Our society still very conservative (tat exclude all forumers here)
Some ppl might think that sg more ex and better. Wrong thinking!!! Doesn't mean that bkk is cheaper means "Skill not Good" In my opinion, still better than singapore. My friend did hers here and thou it didnt go wrong, but mine turned out nicer than hers and price wise, i saved so much!!!
So here's your questions (pardon me for being so longwinded)
1.anyway can u tell me more abt ur nose?
Ans: My nose is quite wide but i hav some bridge but not prominent enough so doc sukit told me that if i do implant, it'll lift up my nose alittle and my nose will look sharper and higher.
Ans: I dun quite get u as in recovery time in terms of the whole recovery or? as i just did it on 1st feb so it's been 1mth plus only. But if u talkin abt can go out and see ppl, i think should be 5 days to 7 days ba.My nose tip stil swollen up till today. of course it;s better than post surgery swell but e real shape of e nose wil take up to 3month to see the real shape and 1 yr to heal.
3.how long u stay at BKK?
Ans:I stayed in bkk for 7days 6nights.Cuz doc sukit told me tat he need me to go back to see him on the 5th day. He need to check on my new nose and how's e recovery.
4.after surgery any pain ?
Ans:The surgery itself is painless as there's anesthesia. He'll 1st inject u and u'll go to slp for like 15 mins during the 1st min u fall into slp, he'll inject anesthesia to your nose.(U wont feel this 2nd injection or anything as u're aslp) U'll be dreaming and drifting in and out of slp but dun wori. The whole procedure is around 30mins. The nurse woke me up n iwas still so numb everywhere. Wheel me into observation ward n put me on e bed with cold compress. That was when e anesthesia went off and e pain starts coming in. As i'm a migraine sufferer, it really kills me.. my head was hurting so much and my nose started to hav some pressure on me.i'm also a sinus sufferer, so worst!!! I started sneezing. I also vomitted as e anesthesia is too strong for me. i went into e surgery with an empty stomach.i didnt eat or drink anything 8 hrs before.so i guess that's e reason too!! after lying there for 5 hrs, i went back to my hotel. Day 2 was the worst!! My nose hurts and swell so much and my eyes bruised.I totally dun looked like me at all. I look like puffer fish.keke. The pain was abit unbearable to me(not nose hurts it's my migraine it lasted for 3 days!!!) my nose felt like those ("Blue black pain)i keep using cold compress. it really helps in de swelling.All in all i felt feverish and the pain in my head was unbearable.as for the nose u can take e pain killer. it helps to subside the nose pain. But my head was like shit!!! I dun dare to take other medicine for my head as e painkiller doc giv for my nose contains peracetamol, i better dun anyhow eat or mix medicine. so i bear with the migraine for 3 full days!!! Non stop!! Up til today, when i touch my nose tip i can still feel e tenderness and pain. But if u dun touch it, no pain at all.Its still very hard and doc told me will have to wait 1 month plus more for it to soften.
5.so they wrap up ur nose or??
Ans: Doc sukit plaster up my nose with surgical tape.It'll drop off after afew days.
Last but not least this is my own experience. It does not mean that u'll feel the same as diff ppl take pain factor differently.U may or may not feel pain. I also know of someone from this forum who did e same surgery and he felt ok by day 2.and even went shopping on day 2 onwards..so i guess mayb i'm just too weak. i'm a gal ma!!! Hey, i got bad sinus and migraine problem ok
keke.. I hope that my story can somewhat help u in anyway.. i'll keep loggin on to reply u ok. just post ur msg.keke
All in all i love my new nose.
