I read that most of you have experiences with the nose surgery in thailand and would really appreciate if you could please advise me on my problems..

I have been thinking of getting my nose done all my life and now that I am 22 and earning money, i would really hope to get this over with, so that I can be a much happier person everyday i wake up.

I just had some fillers on my nose bridge done on 31st march 2010, and was wondering if this would actually affect the procedure?

Also, I saw the pictures on Dr Nara's website and most of his patients are going for like nose refinement ( higher nose bridge etc). I didn't see any pictures that show the reduction of the nose - my main problem now. May I understand if he does nose reduction or any other surgeons that will be able to help me (i saw posts on Dr Chi as well)


In addition, may I understand for most of you who underwent to procedure, does your parents/boyfriend/friends know about it cause people around me are more traditional and skeptical about this.

last but not least, may i know if anyone here would like to go together and get this done? i think it could be fun and also, there's someone to be consoling you during your shittiest ( terrible swelling) time...

thanks sooo much in advance :D


CLarine Nara does NOT do REDUCTION rhinoplasty. I booked an appointment and srgery date with him, only to realise later that he doesn't do reduction rhino.!
SO, my slot on 29th April will be freed up, I said this before, and got emails asking for my slot---still waiting to see who replies!
Also , Dr Puttisak emailed me back very quickly and his words were- I am not familiar with caucasian nose reductions.

SO he doesn't do them either.
I ended up at Tokai, and just today came back from the clinic for a second time for reduction. I pray very hard that it is smooth and ok with healing.
I also looked at Yahnee.

To answer one of your questions, I am not telling anyone that I had this done, more because I can't be bothered, than because I want it secret.
I've made no secret of the fact I have always hated my nose.
But I'm still not telling them. If someone makes a comment, I'll deal with it then.

i read that dr nara's patients are mostly satisfied with their noses... Hm.. It's very tempting to get it done with dr nara but I have one worry. Will silicon last long? i mean, does it still look as nice as it has just been done, after a few years? any positive feedbacks from dr nara's patients? thanks!

you can go in have a consultation and get surgery done same day or next depending on which doctor you choose. Dr Nara is very very busy, if u book now, u will get appt' 3 months from now. consultation is free in thailand. I haven't been told otherwise. If you in hat yai and looking for doctor, go to the beginning of this post (page 1) the info is listed there. Any other questions you should read this whole post, its will answer some questions you may have about nose job..hope that helps.

Hi Reiki,

Thank you for your reply. I am sure having to go through the procedure twice is not a good feeling and I'm sorry to hear that.. I hope you recover soon so you can be rid of the nose you hate :)

Anyway, thank you for telling me that you have a slot available on 29th april, but i dont think i will be able to make it also..cause it's gonna be my birthday week and i dont really wanna be spending it feeling depressed...

after hearing what the doc told you, i shall do more research on tokai and maybe ask if dr putt can help me with my asian nose..

thank you soo much for your help and I hope you recover soon!!:)

permanent fillers? yes, it wld affect the op if it's temporary fillers, better let it all reabsorb first, otherwise it will be hard for the doc to gauge the height and size of the implant etc


Hi Aadvark!

Thank you for the reply!! I pm-ed you on fp and really glad to receive your advise. :)

I think what I need one is a khaki who is also interested to getting a pretty nose and make appointments after sorting my schedule out :)

Hi,

Can i check if anyone has done facelift with dr Nara?

What type of facelift techniques does Dr Nara uses? Is it the non-invasive thread facelift or?
How long does it last and pls advice if you see a good difference before and after. Frankly speaking from the pics in Dr nara's webpage, theres no diff leh.. haha

I enquired thread facelift (3-5yrs lifespan)locally and it cost about $3000.

Anyone can share with me cos i wish to go there for a facelift. thanks!!!

Can also email me at divinecount10@yahoo.com.sg

u only really see final shape and size after 6 mths, so removing it so early might be a little premature

Hi there

Postby rhinoceros » Tue, 20 Apr 2010 6:01 pm

Hi guys
I am in Hatyai now and today is the 2nd day post op.. (Really bored u know... There's nothing to do over here!! i have 4 more days to go.............)
I did my BA with Dr Putt and i must say he is a really good surgeon..He used used the tranaxillary method and a pair of 250cc saline implant.

Before the op, i went for a consultation at about 10.30 (Thailand time) and he showed me the sizes of implants he has.. It ranges from 200- about 500 i guess?? And they were Mentor from USA.. Mentor as in the brand and not flavour mentor ya... Hahaa abit lame..

Anyway, i was not allowed to eat 6hrs post consultation and had to reach his clinic at 3pm.. The 5 hours of waiting before operation seemed really long so much so we finished walking central, odean shopping centre, and some street shops..My stomach was growling like mad....

I reached Dr Putt's clinic at bout 3pm and the Van from the hospital came shortly. When we reached the hospital the nurses tried to communicate with me.. However despite understand and being able to speak reasonable thai, there was nothing that i understood except- YOU WANT TO GO PEE PEE POO POO??? -_- LOL That me really nervous but oh well.. I already paid the money and got poked on the hand for drip so what to do... Carry on loh...Then i kept asking them where is doctor because the op was going to start already and i was so afraid it was not Dr Putt who was going to do the op for me but they just gave me a blank face... -_- OMG at that time i really felt like turning back..

The nurse pushed me to the OR and i saw so many helpers but no Dr Putt.. Luckily one of the nurse could understand me and told me 'dont fear surgeon come already'..Dr putt came in and spoke to me for awhile and slowly i zonked out and the op began.....

I woke up 3 hours later and wow the pain was really unbearable.. I cant even move at all!!! The only thing that i wanted to do was slp! But as time past, the pain lessen and now i am able to shop comparing that the first day i could not even move...

I hope that in probably 2 more days the swelling and blue blacks would go away!!!

Sorry my experiences seemed abit unorganized because the computer is really giving me a headache... Really straining my neck!!!

second op in nine days= 2 days posy

Postby reikiTagakano » Tue, 20 Apr 2010 7:12 pm

Clarice thanks for the kind words.
Well, I DID do a second op-= nine days after the first one.
Dr Pat is a very nice perons, very proffessional and I think VERY sincere, very integral to his own surgery and his own work- it is a bit like asking an artist to do a painting again.
So he was basically really angry with me! A tleast, that is the impression he gave off. He said "no, your nose is good now, no hump" and I was saying,
"thank you, actually there is a hump, I know there is swelling but only at the sides, you can feel where bone is bone, right?"
Still he was very reluctant. He evertually agreed to do osteo, the next day, and I went back 10AM, with the remainder of the money.
He made me wait ages, OK maybe he was busy, then he called down to the office, and he said, "I won't do it, your nose is good now", and I was ready to cry= Im not big on emo outbursts, but the day before, he said, yes, OK, so I was prepared, then he says no.
He said I hadn't paid properly, which was not true, that he didn't charge me for GA, but in his email he said the price included GA ( Im a bit nervous going LA), and he slammed the phone down.
Now I think that's his way= he gets busy and puts the phone down quickly, so I didn't take it too personally.
He called again after an hour, down to that waiting room"OK I don't want to do it, your nose is good". I said he had told me it was OK, and now he was saying he couldn't do any more rasping, it was too dangerous, but the day before he'd said he would do osteo. He said "Osteo is aggressive, it's too much, you have borderline nose, but it's good now, you have to accept reality"./

It was awful, it went back and forth, I was standing there not knowing what to do, I had the remainder of his money, and he said " You can walk out now, I wont charge you any more, , your decision"
But I had already decided!, To go ahead, and yet he was arguing about everything.

In his way, maybe it was not arguing, just that the day before, he said, yes, OK, I'll do osteo and now he was saying rasping only, but even that wouldn't be good.

So I pulled the head nurse/receptionist into that little side room and , I'm sorry to say, started crying, I said, please help me understand, I don['t know what to do, he said yes, now he says no, I am confused, I came halfway across the world , to see him, because he has a good reputation, NOT just the money. She just smiled and laughed, and I must have been very embarrassing to her.

So I just sat there for about three hours not knowing what to do. I could have walked out, but for what? I wanted the nose I have always wanted, so I stayed there, and after another hour he asked me upstairs, and e had another back and forth conversation.
All I wanted was the nose I showed him- NOT outside of reality at all, it's not like Im showing him a picture of Lily Cole!!

And he got more annoyed, or that's what it seemed like, until he wrote a disclaimer saying he was doing surgery against his wishes, and I had to sign it. etc etc.

So....sorry to go on and on, but I had to let you guys know...
I did it under LA, and it was fine,, I left the clinic at 8PM, and the surgery was at about 4PM.

Now it's two days post op, on the second op. Swelling a bit, since I was awake during the op, I know he didn't do that much.

I think he is good, just conservaqtive, but that is what you want in a PS- it was just awful arguing with a man who is going to cut your face, and I had no option, because I was not going walk out and go back home with no change at all.

Thanks for all the vibes and kind comments from people.
Despite my name I am not Japanese, I have a caucasian nose.
I don't consider myself an argumentative person at ALL!
So this was quite tense.
