Anyone have that experience?


Hey Icebaby0, just saw you at the cozycot forum about lipo at medan too. :)


Yah, I am there too. I am just thinking...Dr Nara seems to charge cheaper than Dr Arthur. So was debating whether I should just attempt to do the lipo on lower tummy with Dr Nara and see the effects cos for me, I really just want that portion flat. I am still okay with my thighs and rest of the body...just that tummy area. But again, my worry is whether it will cause more loose skin in future.

Emailed Dr Nara....3 days...still waiting for response. Haiz.


I see, if you just want your lower tummy to be flat, just that portion between your hip bones then you should go to dr Nara. If your concerns also extend to the side as in waist area and hips, then Dr arthur. I did tummy and my sides wasn't touch on , just the tummy itself.

I am intending to go to Dr arthur.


Nod, my concern is only the area between my hips. That's considered 1 area?

By the way, anyone has a direct email to Dr Nara? I emailed the one stated on website...no replies after 3 days leh.

Dr.Greechart doesn't do L-shaped implant, only I-shaped

Did you do it under GA or LA with sedation?

If you could rate your nose out of 10, with 10 being best how would you rate your nose, before and after? Of course, its too premature to reach the BEST state of your nose.

Just curious to know his experience

Hey everyone!

Got back from Yoskarn a couple of days ago. And I am happy to say, a very successful trip!!!!

I really dont know where to start, anywho. I had 3 procedures done at Yoskarn, eyelash implants, eyelid revision and rino (alar, tiplasty and refinement of bridge)

When I arrived in Thailand i was taken straight to the hospital for some tests, blood pressure, x-ray and blood tests, needless to say this really scared me and I started having doubts about the whole trip. My main worry was that I was not fit enough to go through with the surgery so thank god it was all ok!

Anyway I will try keep it short. I stayed at aphrodite inn which is linked directly with yoskarn, they have a door that leads straight into the clinic so no need to walk the streets all puffy and swollen!

My consultation with Dr Somyos Kunachak was about 25 minutes, he had his surgical gear on and seemed a bit rushed for time. he looked at my nose and proposed a silicone implant alar, tip refinement. I said no to the silicone implant which he accepted. My main concern with my nose is not my bridge, altho it is not very high it is not low to start off with. So he suggested alar,tiplasty bridge refinement and aquamid on the upper part of my nose bridge. I asked to see some pictures and he said to look at his website, admittedly this disheartened me a little. So then I asked his assistants if i could see pictures and they said they would show me the next day which they did after i had paid. I think they are only willing to show you before and afters when you are definately going to have surgery with them.

I looked at rhinos of western and asian patients and i have to say they were incredible. Alot of them were revisions too which is actually alot harder than primary. Some of them had really complexed noses and Dr Kunachak had managed to turn them not only into 'normal' looking noses but into really beautiful looking ones. There were lots of folders of before and after pictures, she couldnt show me most of them as they had not given permission. But the ones I saw made me much more confident and relaxed about the whole situation. I saw a couple of eyelid revisions, which again I was impressed with and a few eyelash transplant ones.

Had my eyes and nose done together, minimal pain although the injections were quite nasty. The packing that is used to stuff the nose is awful too, i couldnt breathe out of my nose for 3 days and had a really sore throat and any water i tried to drink kept going up the wrong pipe! The worse procedure was the eyelash transplant. Dr Somyos' team performed the transplant on me, with about 4 of them working on me. The injections were incredibly painful and I actually cried during the procedure!haha I feel stupid and bad for crying but it was so painful I couldnt keep it in.

I am 2 weeks post op and I must say I absolutely adore my new nose. Id like to share my pictures but not just posting them up here. My tip is so defined and 'cute' and the contour of my nose is just so delicate and feminine! Is there a photo album site where I can make an album and a special password for people? I am so happy with what Dr Somyos has done for me, the longer I was at Yoskarn the more friendly and warm Dr Somyos and thier team were to me. The post op care is amazing, and they would often bring me treats and desserts. I am also very happy with my eyes although they are still swollen and its too early for the results of eyelash transplant (can take 6 months).

Dr Somyos is a very busy man. After my eyelid revision they took me to my room for about 15 minutes as he had a couple of consultations to see to....now I realise when I had my consultation what he was doing. Then after that they did my nose. I think he finished at around 9pm. So to those who were also put off by his website, I dont blame him if he does not have any time to look at it, he is always working!!! I saw alot of patients, and a few with bandaged up noses....am still surprised there is still so little information about him on the net, as in my personal opinion he is a very highly skilled surgeon.

wow, theres so much I can say but am just so overwhelmed. Please anyone ask questions because I know how one persons opinion/experience matters so much as I was researching I was desperate for the slightest bit of information. Fire away!!


Hi guys,

sorry for the late reply, I dont come here often as I no longer seek surgery advice as I am all happy and satisfied!

Boi18, I had my eyelid revision done under LA then they put me under GA for the nose, my eyelash transplant was done a week later under LA.

If I had to rate my nose I would say 8.5, I am very happy with it. You may think why i dont rate it a 10? Because no-one has a perfect nose! lol Before I would had given my nose a 2!

4everyoung,

They transplanted hair from my head into my eyes, around 40 were implanted into each eye, although its been around 7 weeks since I had the transplant done the results are not yet obvious. I have to wait for another month or so to see the all the hairs fully grow

Edited to add- My surgery included a 5 night stay at aphrodite so I had to pay an extra 7 days which came to around £320 extra

Hi Aadvark,

I understand you did underchin lipo?
How long did the bruises last?
That is 1 area which can't be covered by clothings. :oops:
Any loose skin after underchin lipo?

Hi Envyme,

You plan to go Nara for more lipo?
After reading your experience, i'm actually kind of scared.
I'm so big, if 1 area is flat and others remain, i might just look unproportionate.
Any advice to share on this?

Hi All
I am a newbie in thies thread. I have already email to both Dr Nara and Dr Artur. But in terms of cost Dr NAra is still the best. Dr Arthur charge $500 for eyelids, $1200 for rhino and botox for jawline $450. Airticket of Hatyai is still cheaper $150 and Medan $252.

Any recommendations that given to ur which one will u choose? I saw the eyelids i still think is quite terrifying due to the healing stage. So afraid that i can't take it. :( Cos i am also not young anymore. Therefore the healing stage may takes awhile. Dr Arthur is really young.
