i had my nose and eyes done at Dr Putt on saturday afternoon and he's real great!!! and im recovering very fast.. all the major swellings on my face are gone. he was very thorough with his explanations and he was really gentle.. :)

then in the evening i had outer thighs lipo at Dr Nara.. and Sunday i had inner thighs lipo too.. it really isnt as bad as i imagined to be.. yes bruising can be rather bad but thats just abt it.. its just like tat typical bruise but just a large area.. :)

Dr Putt told me that the dimple won't look natural because it will be there ALL the time, even when you are not smiling.

Hi pootie,

(Which my friend told me was a wrong move)
What i am worried about is my superiors and colleagues at work place.
And the one thing i am most worried about is waking up and not seeing myself in the mirror...

If you're going in with this mentality then that's great! I'm not sure if being soo open about PS is a good thing, but as long as it works for you i guess that's ok lol.

What do you plan on doing? eyes and nose?


yup yup, pm me your photos? :)

Dr Putt is more thorough and explains in details on what he can do and cannot do.. and we have friends who did with Dr Nara and Dr Puttisak before and we find the works of Dr Puttisak nicer than Dr Nara's.

i told him i have a prob with droopy lids and he explains its cos of the shape of my eyes and he wil do whatever he can to make it look better.. and i've double lids already with deep crease so it makes it harder for him to perform the surgery.. i think during the surgery, he had to remove some stitches and restitch back for me..

he was also very patient in explaining why he cant do what i wanted.. and he showed me if he did wat i wanted, how my eyes would look like.. i felt very comfortable with him and which is why i chose him over dr nara although Dr Puttisak's rates are higher..

my nose is not a button nose and i've a slight bridge.. but i wanted it higher and the docs in Sin said i've a deviated nose and i need to have it reconstructed and blah blah blah.. i have no problem breathing and noone ever said i;ve a crooked nose but Dr Puttisak didnt say anything abt it. i was so conscious and i asked my fren and auntie who im now staying with if my nose is crooked... they said it looks straight and very beautiful and natural..

i wanted a chin implant too but he said to do on my next trip cos he didnt wanna risk me having any infections cos the chin implant is done inside the lower lip.. i asked to have it done outside but he said it will not nice and there will be scarring and he doesnt wanna do it for me... and he also told me abt after care after surgeries like no facials adn no squeezing of blackheads after tat and to see doc and apply pimple creams if i have pimples... he showed us wat the implant was made of and how safe they are.. though i did my research before going to him but i was glad he did wat he did..

i asked him if i could do inner and outer thighs lipo and he said i didnt need.. cos i was in my skinny jeans and my legs didnt look tat fat... later on after i changed to dress to see him for my surgery (cos i was going to nara for lipo after my eyes and nose surgery) he said i can do outer thighs but no need for inner thighs (cos my inner thighs dun join together)..

when i went to dr nara for consultation (before my eye and nose surgery), he was very brief like he cant be bothered with me.. i just asked him for lipo on my thighs and he said, ''yes, you want can do'" tats all.. i didnt ask him abt my face cos i didnt feel tat comfortable.. to me, comfort is very impt..

the fantastic thing happen when i went to nara for my outer thighs lipo after my eye and nose surgery with Dr Puttisak..

my left eye bled when i got up after my lipo, i came out of the room and asked my auntie for tissue cos blood was flowing out of my eye.. she panicked and asked for tissue/cotton pad fromt he nurse cos she couldnt find in her bag and my auntie said the cotton pads were rite in front of her and she just ignored my auntie and siad they dun have tissue, or cotton pad or anything else.. she was so angry then i told her i have some in my purse and then she passed to me..

the next day we went to Dr Puttisak again and she complained to Dr Puttisak on the bleeding incident at Dr Nara's clinic and asked if the same thing happen, will he offer any tissue. He was very diplomatic in his answer and just replied, he's a doctor....

when i went back to Dr Nara's clinic to change my dressings to the waterproof film dressing.. a girl came out of the staff area and asked us if her nose is nice and said her nose was done by Dr Nara.. to us, its weird like coming out just to tell us tat... tat was not necessary at all..

well, at the end of everything, if Dr Puttisak charges the same price as Dr Nara for Lipo or even slightly more expensive, i will do it with Dr Puttisak.. A pity he doesnt.. and if you ask me, i wil highly recommend Dr Puttisak if you need to do PS..

my gf (told him she's my friend) emailed him today to schedule for an appt with him for nose surgery and Dr Puttisak wanted her to remind me to exercise my eyes though he already did inform me, and wanted me to get in touch with him via email. To me, he's one really caring doctor.. now i cant wait to schedule myself for my chin surgery with him..

Anyone have any work done at Tokai Clinic? Please discuss results. I am thinking about going there soon for a brow lift, brow burring, upper eyelid surgery, and lateral canthoplasty.

haiz, why must compare? why must advertise? not like any of the 2 docs will suffer from the comparison...

i'm sure plenty of us will have good stories of nara's to share as well, he was very friendly to me and my friends, and i'm sure to many more forumers as well. as to why he's brief, his packed appts shld explain that enuff...

unless ur frens had the same op done at both nara's and puttisak's, how to compare? it's not like all of us have the same nose to begin with.

i think both docs are credible docs, and both have had plenty of satisfied patients, unless u had a badly botched job by nara, which wld be an entirely diff case...

Hi Aadvark,

I may be having some problems with my implant and may have to remove it. Would you kindly PM me the details of a local doctor I can go to for removal, just in case I really need to do so? Am really grateful for your help. Many thanks in advance. :)

oh my, what's wrong with ur implant?
U can make an appt with the PS dept at Tan Tock Seng hospital, think it'd be more reasonably charged

Well, nothing too serious at the moment. Don't mean to scare you. LOL.
Still during healing period now, so maybe I'm just being paranoid.
It's hard to keep my head cool, especially when it's my first PS and there's no one I can whine to. LOL. :D
