hoho, u din read the thread thoroughly enuff, there is no way u r gonna look normal enuff 1 week later


I know I won't look normal 1 week later. It's about 1-2 weeks judging from what someone said. I'm hoping mine is 1.. I just need to know if I can remove the stitches within a week cos I dont wanna be walking around in stitches. Can I remove?


don't bet on it, it's more like 9-10 days for most ppl, and even then it will look a little unnatural. fren did eyelids at yanhee, remove 6 days later. you shouldn't remove earlier, it's meant to hold the wound together if not wrong


Putt just replied! Eyes 6-7 days.. which is normal. Nose is usually 5? But he told me using dissolvable thread.. which I'm not very happy with since it reacts differently according to each body.. Hmmmm. You think I can fly back to Bangkok and rest then go Yoskarn ask him help me remove? Haha. Cos Yoskarn is really near my BKK residence.. But then I'm worried the doctor wont be happy helping me remove another doctor's stitches..

16 hours.

Checked in to Novotel, showered, and then did some little sightseeing for photography.
Interesting place indeed.
Awesome food as well. Even the roti prata was different.
Their curry was sweet.
Not sweet like Japanese curry, but sweet-sourish with loads of turmeric kind.

Each tuk tuk trip costs 20baht per person.
I did my surgery with Dr Putt on the same day of my arrival in the evening.
Honestly, i had second thoughts about doing my nose when i saw 2 girls who were already in the clinic.
Their face were bloated, swollen with colourful bruises all over.
And one of them was complaining, pain pain pain.
The other was more cheerful.
The cheerful one smiled at me, and i thought she was cute, bloatness and all.

Dr Putt was a small man. I bet he was hotter when he was younger.
Maybe if he'd bother to dye his hair, he'd still look young.
He's nice too.
When I told him i wanted a 'farang' nose, he giggled.
He then asked me to smile, then he literally squeezed my nose, pushed the side of my nose upwards, I said, ow ow ow ow, and then he said,
' I can tell that your skin around your nose is thick. Super thick, and 'unstretchable'. You don't need alarplasty, but even if you wanted to, I wouldn't recommend it.'

He explained to me why, but i don't remember.
Since, it was too technical, too science-cy.
So I just said, Orh.

The surgery lasted less than an hour.
I went out to sightsee their streetlights by the time the surgery's done.
No drowsy feeling whatsoever.

My face was alike to a pufferfish the next day though.


my nose before.

Image

my nose after.
the white hair in my nose aren't my nose hair. It's the stitches.
The incisions were done inside my nostrils.
There's bruises still.

Image

I went back home the next day after surgery.
In the bus, someone's elbow hit my nose when he was doing that stretchingthing.
And it hurted like motherfarkingsmellyballs.
Not once, but twice.
The second time when he wanted to take out his luggage from the compartment above.
BAH!

Hatyai's a great place to shop, jeans only costs SG$8. No brands la, but they don't look tacky either!
People there were friendly.
I'd go there again, to shop shop shop.
but hopefully, minus the 16 hours bus ride.

I guess I'll post up picture of my nose in another month's time.
When the swelling's done.
:)


Hmm how much did you pay for the 16 hours? It's a killer. OMG.
So you didnt stay in Hatyai at all? You just went home right after operation?? Didn't people look at you funnily with all the bruises?

Can't see much difference in the photos you've posted. Hmm. What about front view?? Can post more?

Hi Aadvark, how much did it cost you for buccal fat removal at Tokai?
What is the downtime for that, and is there alot of swelling and pain?

Any idea what are the charges like at other clinics/hospital for buccal fat removal?

I intend to do cheek/chin liposuction, so should remove buccal fat first or lipo first?

Must wear compression garments for face?

Sorry, very new to this so need advice. Thank you.

i did with jaw implants, so were a package price
yoskarn quoted me 1k usd for buccal, think yanhee was abt there also

lipo is at the epidermal layer, while buccal fat pad is at a deeper level, so it really depends which is causing ur face to look fat. it's possible to do both at same time as well.

yeah, ur face will swell like mad, doc will provide u with compression for the face. i wore it at home. but dun think it's an issue, cos u will be so swollen, u wun wanna be seen outside of ur home anyway

Hi All

Postby Ginnie84 » Tue, 16 Jun 2009 1:58 pm

Hi All,

I did my liposuction(4 areas-Arms,Stomach & Inner/Outer Thighs with Dr Nara around end of Mar'09..Overall Experience with them are not bad.

Pain was quite bearable for the first round but kind of nitemare for me after i felt it the 1st time as i am someone who kind of scared of injections..Hee..During liposuction,i actually can feel the pain of sucking of out of the fats when is about to end but still bearable. The reason of being able to feel it might be becoz of the amt of anaesthetic,Nara actually suggest not to give me so much due to worries like not good for brains as i will need it for 4 continous days.

It has been nearly to 3mths since i done my lipo & Nara mentioned in order to see full results will be 6mths n with proper diet..But actually till now,i dont really see the so called "Wow" results on me,not really visible so kinda of disappointed..Anyway,those who done lipo before i would like to check if there's like some bump at those areas which done lipo?N as for stomach till now i still feel is like as if got stomach muscle..Do anyone experience this?N will the scar vanish?

Need some advice....

Thank You!!

diet and exercise is very impt after lipo, definitely have to change lifestyle because watever habits made u fat in the first place will turn u fat again after the lipo. my fren's sis did with nara, quite slim at first, 6 mths later, she was fatter than b4 lipo, cos after lipo, she eat like nobody's business... lipo is just a shortcut, after that must still change diet and lifestyle to maintain.

after lipo, will feel lumpy, cos the fats are uneven under the skin, so will take a while to clear. Massage may help break up the fat lumps. Not sure exactly how long b4 the lumps go away, but i noe mine disappeared less than a yr, din really go and count the mths. The scars will fade with time too...

Aadvark, are you around this forum? I just returned from my estensive Taiwan PS trip. I'm really depressed about my entire results and would like to seek your help in answering some question...

Can I pls have your msn email?


Are you able to leave your email here or something? Cause I can't pm you and I can't leave my email here as I'm worried people will know who I am.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Aadvark tks for your reply. I emailed Tokai and Dr Pat said buccal fat pad removal has no downtime. I can go back to work the very next day. i hope this is true for everyone cos i only took a few days leave for the bangkok trip.

I am intending to go another trip to Dr Nara to do the under chin lipo and arm lipo but from what i understand, that they dont provide compression garments at all. :shock: How long you recommend that i should stay home after this trip so i can plan my leave?

reaaaaaaaally admire you people's courage to do multiple surgeries. i just did my chin at tokai. gosh i think i might have died. it wasn't half bad when i did wisdom tooth extraction.

don't know whether it's normal to look like you've got a hugeeeeeeee chin 1 week post-op. my swelling's gone down now but my face looks long and disproportioned.

dr pat said it's not gd to put the implant in front of the bone, so he positioned it to project forward and downwards. i look like i've got some growth from my chin from my profile view.

sigh, advice anyone? :(

initial chin height will go down by 1/3 to half ba. at start is due to swelling hence the long chin, give it a mth or 2. most ppl end up complaining not long enuff after the swelling goes away
