littlegreenyoda,

Try not to do it urself. Go to a GP. Cost $$, but better to be safe.

I'll go to the one that Greenies mention to me.

Hi littlegreenyoda,

I went to polyclinic to remove stitches sustained from a cut, so i asked about removing lipo stitches, they'll do it. The staff nurse told me to ask doc to write a letter informing them when to remove.

But doc was trying to discourage me from having lipo, "saying don't need lah, just exercise will do etc"

Polyclinic charged me $6. I've checked with my GP, it's $25 & above depending on how many areas to remove.

Have you started to look out for a nice jacket or cardigan to cover your arms?

U can also use a nice shawl so won't look weird, the incisions are at the elbow, can apply concealer so hopefully no one can spot them when u move your arms.

Normally remove stitches on the 7th day. Maybe the rest can tell you more if other polyclinics requires a letter.

As my stitching is done my CGH A&E, so they gave me a letter to remove the stitches on a specific date, then when I went to the polyclinic on that day, they were about to close for lunch so they only allow patients with letter or appointment to enter.

I didn't wait for too long as they have a separate room with a doctor & nurses for dressing, removing stitches etc.

Not sure, maybe the rest who've been to Nara's arm lipo can answer your question about bruising.

My sis just went to taipei for her eyes, she took arnica montana pills 5 days pre op, took 3 times a day (this we learnt it from arthur's instruction for lipo), then prepare 2 packets of Sinnech. By day 5, her bruises on her eyes disappeared, totally cleared.

Just the double eyelid line is still swell, a bit high but no colours so she just wear her normal specs or contact lens, no need to wear tinted glasses.

Ya. Cos the instructions from the pills (same pills that Dr Arthur asked us to buy from Singapore Shopping Centre) tells us a different thing. It mentions:
1st take 2 pills. Subsequently 1 pill every 2-4 hours. Max 10 days.

Can you please confirm what u mention above.
