the nearest hotel to Dr. Nara is Indra Hotel but it's really a motel rather than a hotel. Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel is quite near too, about 5 mins walking distance. If you prefer a better hotel, Novotel is quite good, it's just across the road from Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel.

I frankly think Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel does not really provide good service but the good thing about it is the free highspeed internet service at the lobby/rooms. Novotel's internet is really expensive at 200 baht per hour.

You will not feel any pain after the surgery because the LA will not wear off that fast, though abit groggy. I walked myself back to the hotel alone all by myself as I went to hatyai by myself.


Hmm, mine will be GA and a four day hospital stay.

I heard from one who that did the operation, for the first week or so, tend to feel giddy and pain.

What I meant was that, if I get the hotel voucher, will I be able to get a hotel near dr nara?


You choose your own hotel & pay at the agency for a hotel voucher which you can then redeem at the hotel itself. Different hotels cost differently. I think i saved 200baht per night at Lee Gardens Plaza. Not very sure about other hotels but you can check the rates at the hotel and internet, to compare.

Thanks for the link, angelfern

huskyjade: will be taking tiger airways there, is konsortium anywhere near there?


Yap, have to take a cab down to hatyai after you reach the hatyai airport. cost about 200bhat.. the ride is about 20-25mins depending on the speed the driver drives..

Anyway there isn't those cab you can hire on the streets like in sg or bkk. Only those private cars who offer this service. There are limo at the airport but it cost 300baht. So rather take the private car.

Safe one. Don't worry. =)

would anyone who did their eyes and nose with dr nara please share/pm me with your before and after photos?

I have done liposuction with dr nara and am satisfied with the results though i am still apprehensive about doing actual plastic surgery like having a nose implant. I have asked dr. nara about whether i can make my nose slightly smaller without an implant but he said it would be quite impossible to achieve that sort of results without an implant.

i have seen some thai gals visiting dr nara but I'm not sure if they did their noses with dr nara or they were trying to do revision surgery with dr nara for botched surgeries with other docs but i do not find their noses nice at all! They all looked very weird.

I'm looking at dr. Kao in taiwan for nose surgery with rib/ear cartilage but the surgery would cost about S$5000, 10 times the price of a silicon implant. The pros is that less chance of infection & rejection, better aesthetics but the cons are the high price, and pain from the rib extraction surgery.

For eyes, I'm looking at dr su in taiwan. I think Dr. Nara has done some very nice double eyelids but leaves quite obvious epi scars. Dr. Su cost about S$1600. I wanted to do double eyelids with dr nara but very concerned about the epi scars.

Just to check something with you girls here.

I check Dr Nara website listed accommodation. There is this hotel "Pink Lady Hotel" and the rate is like about 600bath only. Did anyone stay there before?

Went to its website, look weird to me still got model one.

Is this hotel decent enough to stay post op?

i think i passed by before - it looks quite dodgy though i never stayed there before, think it hosts a cabaret show at certain nights. Indra Hotel is even cheaper at about 500 baht?

How about Regency Hotel - think it's 800 baht but it's at the far end, across the road from Novotel but still within walking distance from dr nara's clinic.

Before my 1st lipo with them, i mean, before they see me in real, i also asked about calves but they say they don't do it.. so i give that thought a miss.. thinking of finding other doc elsewhere for calves area.

But when I am there, Ning (Nara's wife) told me I can do my calves area because there was more fats than muscles and she was squeezing it while saying these.

So yea, I told her I'll come back next time to do~!

Pls read my previous post! Dr Nara said only Board certified plastic surgeons is a qualified surgeon, Dr Puttisak is only Board of general surgery, he shouldn't perform plastic surgery as he is illegal, thailand law is trying to get rid of them, but many such surgeons is very gd at covering their act.

I was mislead by Puttisak too, even recommend my frenz to him, luckily their noses came out fine.

I cross my heart, every single word is said by Dr Nara.

He told me he had over 20 years of experience in epicanthoplasty, he said it is a very simple procedure... Well, during my conversation wif him over these 2 days, i found him unbearable sometimes when he kept praising himself, telling me hw many university students wants to learn frm him, but no matter wat i trusted him more than other surgeons nw.

At least he is board certified, he told me straight in my face tat other surgeons is lying to us. They are illegal plastic surgeons.

i booked online the first time. Then i realised it's cheaper to just buy a hotel voucher from a travel agency once you reach hatyai, the second time i went there with a friend.

i think novotel is the best, in terms of room, service & breakfast but it's abit ex, especially if you require internet, the internet rate is a killer.

I found that Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel has quite bad service (nonchalent & unwilling to help) & it's breakfast really sucks. But it offers free wireless internet (speed is not bad) and its inroom service is quite delicious & affordable.

I just had rhino with dr putt on 20 nov evening. i cant really advise if he is gd yet but cos there is still abit swelling.

The procedure is totally painless. I reduce the pain killer intake to half on the second day of surgery and stop taking the pain killer on the third day.

Yesyes! I agreed Lee Gardens Plaza service and attitude is quite bad!!! They don't serve with smiles and all like what I'd experienced in Bkk. Totally different although they're Thais. Can't blame, BKK is a tourist place.

Anyway, the breakfast is reallly really reallly sucks. The only thing nice is the pineapple juice. LOL. Good, just nice for people who go there for PS.
