I did BA with Nara 4 years ago, I highly recomend him solely because he did a great job on me.

The price he quoted includes everything, including one night stay in the hospital.

The op is done in an older style local hospital ,not his clinic. Don't expect it to be a flash modern hospital. You will get your own private room with bathroom and tv, after the op you stay in the hospital for a night ,there will be nurse coming in regularly to check if you are ok,to give you medication and to bring you food. But they don't speak much English !!!

You can choose to stay more nights (you pay more) ,or go back to your hotel to rest the second day. I recomend to stay in Hatyai at least another night after the BA op.

You are responsible for your own transport arrangement between the hospital and the hotel. There are plenty of took took car you can hail outside the hospital.

few things you need to know before going :

1) Please bring someone to take care of you - to carry your luggage,to help you to get up from bed and to help you getting dressed. You won't be able to move around and carry stuffs for the first 2 days,and won't be able to lift your arms for at least 2 week.

2) Your breasts will look very aweful ,maybe unbalance in sizes ,hard like basket balls and painful and tight for the next 1 month, it will get better and drop to a natural looking position ,provided you massage them regularly and not to go too big to begin with .


sounds more or less like what my friend went thru last yr :)
she asked to go from a size B to size C. But for the first month she was swollen to a D! But now she looks normal :)

You will be given alcohol to clean your wounds everyday, this will help to dissolve the threads as well... if you are diligent, the threads will be gone within a month...

but dun worry, the threads aren't really visible from a normal distance, unless the person decides to peek into your nostrils :D

I just got back from Hatyai.

Saw Nara for the second time, this time I had upper eyelids lift and also
rhinoplasty. My face is super swollen like i got hit by a truck,lol.

I stayed at Lee Gargen Plaza for the first night - before i got the surgery, but they gave me a room which has strong musty odour,like it has been infested with fungus. I checked-out the next day despite I have already paid for two nights accomodation.

I went to get a room at Indra hotel (next door to Nara's clinic),which I think it was a good move.

Indra hotel - cost 500 Bht a night, although it looked a bit dodgy and old, but i personally think it's cleaner than Lee Graden Plaza,at least there's no musty smell in the room and it's not overly busy like Lee Graden Plaza.

It was also so much easier to just walk straight in to my room from Nara's clinic after the operation.

The lady at the reception was very helpful and nice, she speaks some mandarin and offered to order food for me whenever i needed it.

She can also arrange transport if you intend to go back by coach.

Hi,

You will be able to carry light stuffs after a FEW DAYS after BA,but definitely no heavy lifting (ie: luggage ) you will feel the pain ,imagine your chest muscles has been opened up and stuffed ,I couldn't get up from bed without anyone helping me for 2 days.

Do you intend to go alone?

Yipeee!! my first week after PS is over and i can see my face back.. However i am dealing with following probs:

a. My stitches on the nose are dissolvable and doctor has put stitches on the front lob as well as inside the nose.. and they are perfectly visible.. i have just one more week of leaves. and I really cannt go to office with these zillions of stitches..
Doc told me that its gonna take 10 days or so to get rid of stitches and today was my 8th day and i cannt see these stitches vanishing in next two days.. :mad:

b. After chin augmentation, my chin didnt hurt at all and now its has been 8 days and sometimes i feel severe pain in the chin area.. which is obviously due to implant... :cry: i am still clueless about why it has started hurting suddenly..

Aadvark: well i also thought that some of nurses@tokai are really beautiful.. i actually asked two of 'em whether they have gone under knife, but perhaps i think thats the case of natural beauty.. :wink:
One more thing, for how long you had to keep your stitches after chin aug. and rhino?

hey inferno, what did you do at tokai? tipplasty?



b. sounds horrible.. is there any sign of localised infection? do you have a fever? if so, then its some viral or bacterial post-operative infection. if it isnt swollen and isnt tender and feels fine to the touch, then its probably nerve pain. =/ if it doesnt go away then you ought to seek medical advice.

Boii18: I went to Tokai for tipoplasty and chin augmentation..
I am sure that I dont have any infection as my chin seems to be quite tender and it hurts sometimes only.. Yesterday i wanted to throw away my implant, but today i dont have pain at all.. :???:

The only infection happened to me was due to splint.
Dr. Pat gave me a splint (or cast) to put on my nose which i had put only for four days. As my skin is bit sensitive :cry: and prone to allergies, i got skin inflammation kinda thing on my nose and doc advised me not to use splint.
I dont have any kinda skin infection... (at least so far... fingers crossed!!)

mine was all done inside, so cannot see. rhino stitches was inside the nostrils, my chin implant was also done from inside the mouth, so stitches were inside.

Problem with chin implant being done from inside was i got infection at the entry point probably because i din take care of oral hygiene, but upside was cannot see any signs of an implant by outsiders
