He became a whole lot friendlier after the chat and even hold me back after surgery to chat somemore regarding his website...


After the surgeries I feel like shit, u can still stay and chit chat somemore


Erm...yup chatted for at least 1/2 hr...more of answering his queries...

Feel more like tired and uneasy cos the surgeries finished quite late, was damn hungry and can't see clearly due to the dressing.

My eyelids still quite swollen even though after 3 weeks post op, u told me u went to some laser treatment to reduce the swell if I remember. Where and what kind of treatment issit?

I guess so, I asked a lot about my BA, discussed about pros and cons of diff types/placements etc and he thought I had previously consulted other Dr. I told him I just did a lot of homework (:

4 mths still consider TOO short :(

I felt the creases reduce rather fast for the first 10 days after that seem no different. Maybe I check on it so many times per day that I can't tell the different but definately very slow, maciam two small cocktail saugages now.

For my left alar, beside the sugical scar it also has two scars caused by the stitches (maybe too tight) which are perpenticular to the surgical scar.

Wa! Haha, goodness. Okay but at least it's 80%, not like 50%. Patience x 2!

Hahaha, did you do medium or low crease? I felt that my crease was getting lower initially as well, now it's dropping at the speed of a sloth. Maybe must avoid mirrors for the time being : D

This year Marigold and Fruitree both launched the mangosteen juice.

Been reading many amazing things abt it, supposedly speeds up healing and is anti-inflammatory, so those who are bored of pineapple juice, maybe can try mangosteen juice too :)

So i decided to do all under Ga which is so expensive... but i tink i wont wake up half way bah... Haha...

This is their reply via email:

Hi,
for standard condition 2 operation at clinic revise nose(12,000 baht), chin implant (8,000)and (at hospital)breast augmentation 50,000 baht = 70,000 baht.
you can have all operations at the same day.
for extra condition(as you need)3 operations at hospital under GA : BA 50,000 baht + revise nose 40,000 baht + chin augmentation 28,000 baht total cost
= 118,000 baht .


They emailed me and quoted me 118000 for the whole surgery under GA. I've calculated that if i do chin and nose in his clinic i save about $2k sg dollars. But huh, i damned scared.


Perfectcut! all ops in a day, tt is damn scary lar! anyway when will u be going over? have u considered going to Dr putt?


Come to think about it, maybe i can consider Dr Putt as well... is he good in BA and chin too? Does he hav a website???

crispypanda wrote:Hi all! Forgot my old nick’s pw, had to re-register ): I visited Dr. Nara with Sganbaatar.

Blepharoplasty:
Basically when I went in, I just told Dr. Nara I wanted dbl eyelids and asked what he would suggest for my face. He told me that he would do tapered and medium crease (which is exactly what I wanted, so bingo!) One thing I learnt: If you have an epicanthal fold, a parallel crease will turn out to look tapered unless you do epicanthoplasty. After the sedation I lost sensation on my T-zone, just felt like there were a thick layer of masking tape there and he was cutting on the tape (actually my skin). He used some laser thing I guess (couldn’t see : P) to burn off some tissue(?) from my eyelids cause I heard crackling sounds and there was a charred smell after. I was quite busy thinking how cool it was that I couldn’t feel the pain yet felt everything he did.

After that I had squinty vision but I managed to get on a tuktuk to the hosp. and register for my BA (same day) myself.

Personally, I think I bruise easily so I took Sinecch despite Dr. Nara saying that he doesn’t recommend cause it ‘might thin the blood’. I think that + pineapple juice helped my bruising and swelling a lot : D My eyes seemed to have healed fast.

BA:
Like Sganbaatar mentioned (scroll up), learn your cc. amounts if you wanna know what a cup or two is equivalent to. He is not going to suggest a size based on bra measurements. Also, if you have asymmetric breasts don’t expect him to give you different sizes to balance them out. Cause unlike some ps surgeons who do, he only uses the same sized implant for both boobs.

If you’ve done your research, you’d know about profiles and muscle placement. He only uses low-profile (although he claims that low profile for the implants he use are actually medium profiles for other brands). He doesn’t use high profile and stopped doing subpectoral placement.

Dr. Nara examined me and said that my skin is ‘young’ therefore it’s tight. (I’m 20, no kids btw.) Before that I had stretch marks cause I slimed down a lot, having the implants just widened them. Bummer!

I was suggested the same cc. amount as Sganbaatar but as she mentioned above, we’ve got diff body types. So when I wanted a size up, he explained that because of my smaller frame and narrower chest the smaller implant would be sufficient. If I wanted bigger, it would expand all sides (i.e. higher up my chest, lower down my abdomen, middle would be squeezed, lots of side-boob.) So thinking about it, does make sense if I wanted to look natural. He popped in ‘For your body size, these are not small at all.’ For good measure : D My boy seems to agree.

I’m quite happy that my healing was rather smooth, I was sick from the GA as well but after a day or two I was fine. There isn’t much discomfort from my BA as well, only due to my incision (transax) using my arms were a pain in the butt. And you pretty much need your arms for anything. :[

Dr. Nara was more patient with me cause I hardly disagreed with him, but asked a ton of questions from my research during my consult. I read that he's a man of few words, but all my queries were answered. During my eye surgery he was even talking to me about why some of his plastic surgeon friends chose to use certain methods he doesn’t. Overall, I’m happy about both procedures. Waiting for my crease to drop and boobies to soften further. So far so good (:

HTH : D

Thanks! Good luck to you (: Nope, not at all. Frankly, I'm not sure what they did to me also aha. The anesthesiologist just came to me and asked for my name, intro-ed herself and said 'Okay, we're gonna put you to sleep, you'll wake up and everything'll be done.' Then she put a gas mask on me and got me to breathe in deeply, she said it was 'pure oxygen' (something along those lines). I was still thinking oh so exciting! So when are they gonna jab me? After this oxygen thing? Next thing I know I was in my ward with a baby elephant on my chest (felt like it) Perhaps the aesthetic was in gas form?

Oh. One thing I forgot to mention. The bandage that they stuck to my left incision was bloody, so the nurse had to change. She kinda RIPPED the tape off my skin and that bloody hurt cause its very close to the incision and the tape was god-like sticky. In the end the new bandage was bloody as well. Bah. ): Remember to ask them to be gentle!

dr putt does BA in his own clinic and charges the same as dr nara. heard he is quite okay with his ba but maybe you could try email-ing him for before and after pictures?
i am thinking of re-doing it with him as i wasnt given the size i wanted when i did with nara. oh but anyways, i am going to him in aug for my nose. when are you going perfectcut?
