Haha... not true, some medical agents like 've access to a few physician's emails. There's a email consultant thing, and the agents could be a westerner, australian in particular. :D There's a time lag/ difference.

But i think the email is from the Dr. himself, because he quoted in THB.

Bumrungrad & Yanhee has consultants who work 24hrs, they're the 'translators' who also attend when the international patient needs something at night.

I have just consulted my gynae on recommending a good surgen for tummy tuck. But he advised me against it. He remarked that Asian skin don't heal as well as caucasians. He said that apart from haveing a firmer and flatter tummy, I still won;t be able to put on bikinis or midriff tops as the scarring will be quite bad.

Has anyone done a tummy tuck before where the results are fabulous ?

Please advise. :)

Consider the extend of scarring. I've had a C-section & my scar seemed to have healed very well & I'm asian. I have stretch marks on my tummy & I have to decide whether I want an over hanging tummy & stretch marks or an extension of my C-section scar, I'd rather the latter coz either ways I already have scars. Why don't you browse through the web & find before after pictures so that you can know what to expect. You have to be realistic in your expectations. From my experience, I've never had a doctor recommend cosmetic surgery. They always say what's wrong, its nature & so on. I'm going to bangkok for my tummy tuck because I think they do a lot of it there & probably are more experienced. Some may dispute but ultimately its up to you & you'd have to do your research to find a surgeon that you're comfortable with.

For Local surgeons, i'm in favour of Dr. Vincent Yeow; because i'd seen his works. (For facial cosmetics procedures)

For Tummytucks, it depends on the skill & experiences of the surgeon; unlike Liposuction, Rhinoplasty augmentation, Eyelid surgery & even facelift.

Tummy Tucks, Rhinoplasty reduction, Breast reduction & Breast lift should be still best handled by the better doctors who're in the slightly expensive category.

The choice of 'scaring' will be different, as far as possible; the 'cut' would be slightly under the abdominal crease across the public area. An incision is also made around the belly button. (Possibly with a abdominoplasty, the patient will have a new belly button. (new opening is cutted from the skin)

You must be sure, you won't want another baby....

Yes, unfortunately; you've to accept that the 'incision line' leaves a permanent scar. I'd seen abdominoplasty done by a much-celebrated BKK hospital, the incision is in the belly area. That is bizarre!

I still hope to warn folks here against a BKK hospital, whose website is designated for Plastic surgery only. :-)

Hi Superstar, many thanks for your reply.

I really feel very inferior about my unsightly tummy and the current trend of dressing is not helping either.

I wonder whether you can share your experience with me after your surgery in bangkok. If I choose to go ahead, I'll do it in Singapore as I will be taken care of by my mum.

My email address is joey_long17@hotmail.com

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me.

I'll let you know all about my adventure in Nov when its done. I'm really looking forward to it & I'm doing it all alone. Everyone thinks I'm mad including my husband. He thinks its totally unnecessary & uncalled for to have someone cut me up. He's very afaid that I won't come abck alive! Till then...

Dear Superstar,

You should reconsider, because after tummy tuck; ladies 're not recommended to get pregnant.

So unless you're middle-age, and has a couple of kids; don't consider it.

Thanks for your advise but I'm in my late 30's, 2 kids & also sterilised .
I decided to go for my tummy tuck after much consideration & it wasn't a hasty decision overnight.
