I am going to Bangkok next month from 23 Jan to 26 Jan, was initially thinking of going to Dr Sukit at YanHee hospital...but after hearing so much raves here. I might be considering Dr Nara...

But the problem is.....how to travel frm Bangkok to Hatyai??


I am doing rhinoplasty, I heard abt removing the stitches after 6days....we have to get the doctor to do it or I can do it myself :-k


I'm taking the 6am flight from BKK to HDY on the 22nd Jan. Be staying at Lee Plaza. We could meet up there! Nurse our post PS trauma lol.

hi,

I am touching down in BKK on the 23rd Jan ard 8am plus....

I am actually quite in a dilemma whether to go to HDY...coze if i were to go HDY...I will have to fly back to BKK. Not sure if it is advisable to fly after surgery :o

Coze my initial plan was to go BKK for holiday...booked the tix like 3 mths back...Going to Thailand for PS is like a last min decision(but have long ago wanted to do PS)

If it is advisable for me to fly aft surgery, I confirm will meet u there

Now, I guess I will have to head to YanHee O:)

Is it safe for me to fly back to Bangkok rite after surgery? Will the air pressure cause my nose to "shift" to sumthing...or block my blood pressure...


Can anyone kindly advise :wink:


5-7 days safe to fly back.


shouldn't affect your blood pressure, air pressure affects my ears, never blocked my nose b4... not sure whether others are same as me

i flew off on the 4th day after my suregeries last year...

I am interested in doing Rhinoplasty.

Just a few things to clarify, hope u all can help me:

1) Rhinoplasty and nose implant is the same right, just a different term being used ya? yup

2) I know a few of u have went for the nose job, and it's so troublesome to take care of it after that ya.
So no contact with water means for that whole recovery period washing face is a nono?
then if bathing and water is not allow to drip down?
or a slight contact is fine but must clean it away immediately?
i avoided the face lor, showering, can avoid the face ma... face area clean with damp cloth then dry immediately

3) what happen if during the healing period and u happen to sneeze, how? will it affect or spoil everything?
sneezing is fine la, nose will feel sore, just control the sneeze, louder you sneeze the more painful

4) for alar, usually u got it done there and got ur stithes removed in Singapore?
6 days later then can remove stitches, so if you dun want to stay there so long, remove back in sg lor

5) For implant I or L shape better, will DR Nana give suggestion?
Haha, it's Dr Nara (a man), not Dr Nana. Dr Nara only does closed rhino, silicon L-shaped implant so you dun have a choice

6) So after the nose surgery right, sleeping will be difficult right, every action is not to hurt ur nose right?
Hmmm, not sure about you all, but when i sleep seldom will touch my nose la, be it on back or on side, so wasn't a problem... something touching ur nose wun be painful unless pressure is applied... so if you tend to sleep halfway and bury your nose into your pillow, then might be a problem...

Sorry for asking so many questions(to all), then again this whole forum is really very informational! Totally great help.
Thank you very much in advance



Hey thanks so much for the reply.

One more question, silicon and gortex. same?


pros and cons, think you can find a few such articles through google
Dr Nara only does silicon tho...

ppl please correct me if i'm wrong; gist of it, silicon is more defined, goretex less risk of rejection

happyliving: I think it's good to consult a gp first. If unsure, would be referred to a hospital. Good luck! Hope your nose would be all okay soon.

aadvark: Good luck~ All the best!

Hi Happyliving,

When the pain & itchness started ? Could it be due to seafood.

Hi happyliving,

the healing rate depends on each individual actually. i don't think you need to fly back to nara! :? like what aadvark said, his eyelids also took longer than normal pple to heal but in the end also heal nicely! so perhaps you don't need to worry too much. best if you want can consult an aesthetic doc bah.

i do feel tightness especially around the tip area! itch only a bit, after the 6 day, around the alar stitches. yup... hope it helps!

Snowss-

nara uses GA so will be totally knocked out. but i woke up halfway during the op.... but no worries, no pain at all, can only hear nara talking to nurses and see him working on ur face. i felt bored so after a while i fell asleep.

anyway, nara's nurse will def advise you more abt the post op procedures so there is no need to worry excessively! :)

i think can't really touch water untill the alar stitches are removed.... around 6 days.

we just did our surgeries at Nara's

Lazy did dbl eyelid, mewmewzz did rhino, i did alar and dimples
i wanted to do more, but he keep saying i dun need, even if do, wun see much effect, waste money...

so i decided to save the money and made an appt with tokai clinic for this friday for jaw implants, see how it goes...

happyliving, we told Nara about your case, he said you should call him immediately
