Oh saw ur post about the scary being alone in BKK.. hmm.. i must say BKK is really safe, as long u don go to those dark alley and don go out too late alone, it should be fine.. and most impt don stays in those 'wu lu' hotel if possible! stay somewhere that is near town.. u don have to go to Yanhee Hopsital everyday, so u can stay in town area.. cos YH area abit out of place and nothing there.. at least after that u can shop at town area and safer too..don worry, i always travel alone, this time round i am scare is becos of the PS!! hehehehe.. but now over liao!! wat a relieve!!!!! :lol:

Wow.. :o that is alot of qns!! hehehehe.. ok let ans u one by one..

1. Yes it that fast! 10min done!!

2. Lucky me just need to do the bridge only

3. 1st consultation just ask watever i need to ask, and Dr sukit will see whether how high u need for ur bridge and do u need to do reduction. and take a couples of pic.

4. I do not not know whether it is call local anasthersia, cos it make u sleep and slowing u became abit of concious but still no pain, and u can feel they are touching ur nose. so no worries, no pain at all during op..

5. Ya, holiday inn.. it about 35-40mins away from the hotel to YH, depend on the traffic condition. YH area cosider quite outskirt actually.. this is why i say u beta stays in town hotel esp u going alone. Room rate abit on the high side S$127 per nite, cos it a re-renovated hotel, it really new and nice! service is excellent! and most imptly, the hotel staffs can speak good english, and when u take the cab from the hotel lobby, they bell boy will take down the taxi number u took, just in case if anything happens to u *touch wood ofcos* they can trace.. i know u on the budget tour, but u would rather pay more if come to ur own safety!!

6. I took a cab from airport taxi stand, cos if u wanna to arrange the transfer thru the hotel it going to cost u bomb, so it really not necessary.. just take from the taxi stand outside the airport it alrite..

7. the food here is excellent!! Bkk is like a 2nd home to me!! cos i came here so many times but nvr get sick of their foods!! so spicy so nice!! but got to warn u, after the op u can't take spicy foods, so i being having room service for 2 days.. yuck! :-|

phew.. Hope i ans ur qns.
:wink:

Hi Ocean 11,

Thanks a lot for sharing your experience! It's really very kind of you! And great to hear that you are happy with the result! Frankly, for all the trouble we take and the worries we have, that's all we need right? Congra!

Hi Astar,

To answer your qn on pg 50, ala reduction is nothing to do with bridge, they don't even need to cut open your nose so there is no open or close method (if I'm not wrong). It's reduction (ie cut away then sew back) of the size of the nostril at the side connecting to the face, so that it look less big. You may like to do some web search to find out the types and method of rhinoplasty then make up your mind what you would like to do. Take care!

Rdgs,
Rabbit

5K!! more then enough!! I only spent about less then 2500 for all..
No hidden cost, i paid 18209 baht for everythings. so it about S$743. i change at 24.5 rates.
yup i check in then i put all my valuable stuffs inside hotel safe lor.. 9 days enough la.. unless urs a big op.. my is really minor. that is why only 10 mins.
U cant have excessive excerise after the op for 2 weeks. so u got to stop.

Catalyst,
Thanks!! but still cant see now til friday take out the bangadge then can tell.. but so far so good.. *touch wood* no fever and no pain.. just abit of nose bleed on the 1st day, which is normal..

GREETINGS EVERYONE!!

Hi! I am a newbie here .. and I would like to ask you guys for advise on NOSE surgery. My nose is kinda broad and would like to narrow it. However, I would like to do it in Singapore. I had my eyes done up before by Sinova's Dr. Seah. But I am not sure if I should let him do up my nose. Does anyone have any experience in this? Any recommendations or advise on "not to go to" doctors? Please please help me in this as I need to do it fast!! Thanks everyone!!!
