Hi aadvark,

Thanks for your reply!

Should I wish to consider the Thai PS, who are your recommendations?

if hatyai, i'm only familiar with nara, puttisak and chi, and they come with many recommendations

if bangkok, i suppose yanhee

i'm not sure why it's called scarless, because it's all done from the inside of the lower eyelid, so there shldn't be any external scar either way. think it's normal scalpel vs laser that we are talking abt

Nara is tried and tested but his repertoire is not wide. Chi is the new kid on the block relative to this forum, but he seems to provide a more varied menu

hi all

i have been reading the forum for a while now and made up my mind earlier this year to visit dr. nara on a rhino&alar surgery, thanks to both advice received from here and referral who had been to him 7 yrs ago.

it has been 4 weeks post surgery and the nose is looking good with a good 80% of swelling gone and it is generally natural even though unnatural in the sense that if you knew me well enough, you would have noticed the increase in bridge from my side profile or something different to the eyes.

while I have not received truckload of compliments, I am pretty happy with the natural results that the doctor had given.

The surgery was booked 4 months beforehand, took 1.5 hours and was painless even though I woke up when the surgery was ongoing. like the rest mentioned before, doc was joking with me and the nurse during the op. the pain sink in only on day 2 when i awake. even then, nothing a few painkillers didn't help.

during the 10 days recovery, the emotions went on a rollercoaster ride and everyday I am ridden with new worries- on the recovery, the look of the nose, the bumps, the scarring from alarplasty, the reaction that I will receive from friends and families and most importantly, the healing.

but with taking good care, it all went well.

Today, i worry about something else- extrusion of the L-shaped implant. I have no qualms about Dr. Nara's professionalism and technique when I was in surgery, my mind was firmly made up and I was adamant to fulfill a lifelong dream.

Now, I sit here with my new nose and have bouts of mixed emotions. While I am loving the recovery, I live with a constant worry about extrusion of the implant. My mind cannot be taken away from the worries of this risk.

So, I have made up my mind on the removal of the implant soon.

And I seek any advice on post-removal recovery, which local doc to visit for this, as well as the effects that the earlier surgery would leave on the nose to prepare myself for this next change.

As a word of warning to many of you here who are planning on your own surgery, I'll suggest more importantly, while preparing the money and the meds, please also prepare your mind for this emotional period that would last you a lifetime. Anything can happen thereafter and if you are lucky, you meet with a good surgeon, blessed with strong thick skin and smooth recovery. I wish you luck!

V.L Hotel just a normal room got tv no bathtub...but if u need to use wireless not too sure cos lobby area got compter for u to use internet.

yea..I kinda regret booking V.L
But it's too late to change now also..
Will have to incur a processing fee..
How long does it take for you to get to Dr. Chi's clinic from V.L hatyai?
Is it within walking distance?

Hi all,

According to this source:
http://books.google.com/books?id=4J95te ... te&f=false

10 - 50% of silicon implants will have complications of extrusion,

Medpor has a high lower extrusion rate,

A small amount of infection/ inflammation/ reabsorption/ twisting with Gore-tex,

...amongst other things.

I have actually booked an operation date with Dr Nara. But he still hasn't replied me if he does composite rhinoplasty surgery...which is to harvest autologous bones/cartilage from my body and form the "implant".

I'm sure that has its risks too, but it should be way safer.

Anybody have done that kind of surgery with him?

Or else I'll save enough money and do it in Korea/Taiwan. Meantime, I'll get dimples.

nara doesn't do autologous... and that source is biased... silicone has a way longer history than other foreign material... not enough time has lapsed for us to determine how good/bad the other materials are

just like dr chi is the new kid on the block, and hence has lesser infection/extrusion cases, does not mean he is necessarily better than nara

That's true. But just as the fact that there will "generally be more Westerners with the extrusions compared to Asians cause of difference in thickness of skin", these things are collected data (though it doesn't necessarily mean medical data).

All these information count, like you said, the other materials are newer and the full risks may not be documented enough. But even a 10-50% extrusion rate made by Silicon is enough to make a person who wants to do rhinoplasty with silicon implant rethink if an unfavorable result is worth gambling for.

But definitely there is a consensus that harvested autologous bone from the body is the safest choice as an implant in the nose, because there antibodies in our body can fight off an infection.

i agree autologous is safer, i still dun trust goretex

just have to be mindful harvesting cartilage from rib will leave a scar if u cannot heal properly... dat's why now some ppl prefer to use irradiated cartilage harvested from cadavers

I will be going for my chin augmentation and nose implant soon after reading the comments........

For chin, i prefer Dr Chi. And for nose, i think i will go for Dr Sompojana Danvorapong.

Anyone heard about Dr Sompojana before? It's also one of the PS surgeon in one of a Hat Yai clinic. It's recommended by my friend that stay in Hat Yai....
