That's my original eyes when i am alert....but can get real droopy when i am tired.
Image
This is how they look when i am tired...droopy....sleepy...

Image

This is taken 9 days after surgery. Crease will very high and i dun like it at all...

Frankly speaking, i prefer my old eyes when they are not droopy

Honest opinion from forummers?

Nose-wise, last night suddenly all the swelling went down and look better than my old nose, but when i woke up today, it's back to the bulbous tip...
sigh, dunno how...still waiting for it to be constant and stay normal.
Think i look very fake now...crease too high, nose too big...

Maybe i shd have looked into the mirror and see the crease when nara was making them. Or maybe i shd have just did my nose like aadvark and my friend advised.

Aadvark,

Can you recommend a clinic or hospital in Bangkok that does epicanthoplasty since Dr Nara doesn't do it?
I've been going thru the forum but can't seem to find anything. :(

After your pm, I emailed Dr Putt again and he confirmed to me that he does tiplasty now.
Will be going for the surgery with him on 9 May.


hi Pinkyice, may i know how much Dr Putt quoted you for tipplasty? i asked him twice in the email but he keep mentioning rhino price instead :???:

i will be reaching Hatyai on 1st May, may stay for about aweek, if you going that period, able to meet you too :)


I will reach there on May 9 (sat) and leaving on May 11 (Mon).
The tiplasty is included in the rhinoplasty so I guess that's why he quoted you the price for rhinoplasty.

Haha ... I agree totally ... which is why my wife and I are in this together :D

Anyone please help on this question ... do we need to fast before the ops and for how long?


just a couple of hrs? cannot remember if it's 6 hrs... maybe someone who did recently can refresh our memories... anyway, the doc will let u noe


unless you going for breast implant which needs GA, you can eat all you want before any other surgery that involves only LA/sedation


not really lei, i've had some ops which used twilight sedation but still required fasting


Well when i reached the clinic in the morning, i asked the nurse and she said that before nose and eyes can eat, dun worry.

Then during my consultation with Nara, i asked him just to reconfirm and he said the same thing....emphasizing that only breast implant cannot eat...

That's what Dr Nara told me when i asked him before my operation....

So i think it's better to ask the doctor in the email ba?


I guess diff. doctors have diff. pref.
I had twilight a couple of times before and I was requested to stay sober at least 6 hours before. When I asked why, doc replied that in case of emergency, like heart problem or severe bleeding, they move you to hospital and they can put you under GA if necessary which is more dangerous if stomach is full because of nausea and possible vomiting afterwards and choking yourself that way.
I would stay sober no matter what doc says. Also that way twilight sedation works faster. I always dose off right away and am hardly aware of anything going on.


nara said only BA need, because he only uses GA for BA. and it's a MUST to fast b4 GA. Some docs prefer us to fast anyway for twilight sedation as looier pointed out :) well, nara doesn't require it, so it's optional for u? :)

Great, at least one thing less to worry when they are operating on me :lol:

Brenton, the healing is amazing though the crease may look abit high but it will be prefect when its totally healed. Hope you can post again a month later to let us see the diff. Also may need your secret of healing later ... more determine to do it after seeing your pic :D

Already emailed dr nara for end June appt, waiting for his confirmation before I proceed to book the hotel and transport.

Thanks guys for all the help!

I'm experiencing the same as you. I just did my surgery on April 9th at Yanhee and my eyelids are swollen and thick. I haven't seen my nose yet because I'm still using the splint. I was told by the doc to take out the sutures and splint in a week. I hope all goes well for you. I will post my photos in a few weeks when the swelling goes down.

I just came back from my surgery at Yanhee Hospital. I'm wondering if you felt what I felt under local anesthesia.

Okay, this is how it went. The nurse gave me a shot on my arm. In a minute or so I started to go through a maze full of colors. The operation room had some thai music on which made me feel like I was died. I felt like I was attending my own funeral which was really sad and scary. It was weird because I miss my mom a lot and she was the only person I was thinking about. What is she going to do if she found out I died because of plastic surgery. It felt so long and lonely. All of this was going through my head under local anesthesia.

Anyway, to make things shorter. Is this how I'm suppose to feel? I felt kind of traumatized afterwards...


Going through a maze full of colors sound like high on drugs....
For me, the nurse gave me a prick on the back of my hand and shortly i fell asleep. But when i woke up, he was tugging at my nose putting in the implant. There wasn't any pain even though i can feel him pushing it in.
Eyes took like forever as i was fully awake by the time he finished the nose. I tried asking him to let me sleep again but apparently one need to be awake during the eye surgery.

Instead of been traumatised after the surgery, i felt so relieved that the surgery is over that i am so so so happy. Depression only came 5 days post op. :) 10 days post op i am feeling better :)


I totally agree. I think I was high on the drugs. I had mood swings like I'll be happy in a moment and sad the next. I have no idea how long I was on the table before the surgery, but I was glad when the doc woke me up from the drugs and start lasering my eyes. I could smell something burning. He did my nose next. My bf said my surgery was only 40 minutes. Holy cow...isn't that fast for eyelid and nose???? I hope it turns out beautiful.

Thanks for the reply Aadvark.
I just saw you suggest Yanhee in one of the other threads so I went to email them. They do have epicanthoplasty. :D
Just to ask for your opinion, do you think it's advisable to do that with them? Since you've been there before?
Sorry for asking so many questions!!

Brenton,

Your eyes look fine. :)
Mine were actually higher looking when i did them. :o
And they weren't exactly even, unlike yours. lol..
I would trust Dr Nara's judgement. :)
Hope your eyes and nose are better now.

your eyes are gorgeous. it will be nice after the swelling is over. don't worry, your eyes are nice. i think you can do parallel and a rather high crease is because the distance between ur eyes and eyebrow is quite wide, plus ur eyelids before were not puffy..

I have a few qns which I think may be repititve. I've looked through many of the 140 over pages and if someone would still take the time to answer my qns, it'd be greatly appreciated.



I understand Nara does not do vaser lipo. Exactly what form does he do and how different is it? How effective is it for arm and lovehandles? (of course, I'd do my own research on his method but if someone could share your personal experience?)

I've so far read about people with the intention to do lipo with Nara, but no feedback from anyone who have really had it done with him. Anyone?

Are there any other thailand clinic/doctor recommendations for Lipo?

Silly qn, but can I pay by credit card with Nara? or THB cash only?

Where did you all book Hatyai hotels? I can't find any online sites with either lee gardens or indra booking.

Anyone stayed in Indra before? Is it reasonably comfortable? Its much cheaper than Lee I think.

How dangerous is it for a lady to travel to Hatyai alone? I intend to grab a flight from bkk to hatyai, take a cab to either Indra or Lee garden. Get to Nara and return to hotel (I don't know how yet) and perhaps stay an extra night before returning back to SG in the same way. Basically, for safety reasons, I'm willing to stay indoors and travel only to and fro the airport. Still, I'm a little wary if taking a cab to the hotel and to the airport in Hatyai might be a little dangerous? I'm not only going alone, I do not intend to let anyone know about my whereabouts or activities either!


I feel a little safer about BKK but the costs are significantly higher. Though if there was a reasonably priced and recommended doctor who does vaser, that would be a big enough selling point.


Nara accept Cash only, if you look thru the forum, there are afew lovely forumer have share their lipo experience someone has mentioned before that Indra is more like motel or Hotel 81 (from outside)..


Thanks for your reply. Very helpful, I will definitely strike Indra off my list then. Anyone can direct me to an online agent for booking of Hatyai hotels? I can't seem to find any ...

Thank you everyone for the encouragement :)

As i am healing quite fast, i hope the crease will go down further and this is not the final height.

I tried to listen to aadvark and not to look at the mirror, but in the end, i did exactly the opposite..
I keep looking at the mirror to make myself get used to the new look..

Heehee, hope when i post the 1 month pic, it would look better
