Hi bjork7! That's me all right:D

Saw your backview and I was just thinking what a nice 'S' figure you have after giving birth to 2 kids! Wishing you a speedy recovery:)

Hi Epxofglitter,

Thanks for your sharing.

For what i wonder is after the surgery, need to go back Penang, and will be so obvious when pass immigration.

And wonder is it good enough for me to go back to work on 6th day.

Doctor will give any medicine to reduce the swelling and bruising?

Yes, that was me and my boys! :) Were you the one who traveled alone with a huge dark sunglasses? I think I might have seen you, too :)

Well, today is day 11 after my surgery. I feel so much better, everything is healing nicely. I started driving since Monday which was 9 days after the surgery. I know I'm not supposed to but I really still have so much to prepare for Christmas. I just don't take the pain killer.

However, yesterday I felt quite a bit of pain on my breast area. My fault really because I had to go into my storage room, climbed up a ladder, lifted some empty suitcases and a carpet and moved them; I tripped a light switch in the house and had to fix the breaker. But after my husband came back home, I rested all through the night and I woke up feeling much better.

Hi XXYY,

I would rate The Golden Crown Plaza hotel 3 out of 10. If you're not fussy then it should be okay, I'm quite particular about cleanliness so I wouldn't recommend it. My family and I stayed there for 2 nights because Novotel and quite a few other hotels were fully booked on the last 2 nights we were there. On the last night we actually found 2 cockroaches in the room!!! That was such a horrible horrible experience! I'm not even sure how those cockroaches get up there in the first place. The whole night I couldn't sleep coz I was afraid that there might be a cockroach on the bed :(.


Hi Bjork,

Thanks for your advise, since I am last minute searching the hotel for 24 Dec, most of the hotel already fully book, so that only can get Diamond Plaza....Hope this hotel will be ok. and also I am only stay for 1 day, i think should be no problem...

Back from Hatyai

Postby LadyVv » Tue, 27 Dec 2011 1:53 pm

Hi everyone,

I am back from my double eyelid , epi and buccal fat removal. I am there 4 day 3 night and have my surgery on the 2nd day.

Dr Chi is really nice and will listen to you to explain what kind of thing you want , we were chatting and laughing all the while & because i appt was supposing at 4 pm . and got no choice have to wait till 9 pm. I consult him at 6.30 pm and have my surgery at nearly 9 pm. He was nice to ask his nurse to have the tv turn on although for some reason it can't be on , therefore i told him its okay but u can see he hope i will have nice time waiting out there. He smiled all the time :)

During consultation ,
I showed him photos and stuff , he understand basic english but not as good as singapore standard.. After showing him all the photos and stuffs he agreed that the kind of eyelid suits me. So the eyelid request is around 6.5mm , parellel . I told him i don't want to look fake and i did bring a "fake" kind of eye which i don't hope to achieve afterwards.

For my buccal fat removal , he said he don't think i need it but i still insisted on it because i really hate those fats on my cheek , and he willing to do for me since i want it. I like how he explain to me and advised me :)

During the op ,

I was given 2 anitbiotic and 2 other pills before i went in.

Straped , on sedation. He work on my eyes first then my face. I was half awake and half asleep....=.= I remember he drew marks on my face and tell me he is injecting my eyes and it will hurt . i also remember him sewing my eyes..... and smelling the burning thingy.. Lastly i remember he cut the tape nicely and put on my eyes . Next , i forgotten already.. till i suddenly felt that my mouth hurts ! like someone pulling it open hard . but the pain is bearable i think and i guess i passed out after that already .. because i kind of moved away and suddenly he said finished. i was like.. huh finished he still happily say yeah finished.

I went down to look for my friends and was quite giddy.. Back to hotel and fall asleep not long. My surgery took 2.5 hours according to my friend.

Today is my 3rd day , i bruise and swell quite badly but it was better than i expected . The tape dropped off last night when i apply the cream onto it. He gave me cream , anti biotic , swelling med and pain killer. He asked me not to shop around and rest at hotel for 3 days and ice as much as possible for first 3 days.

I think i will post the process pic from day 1 to 10 after it look better :)

Thanks everyone for the contribution , because of this forum i found nice and cheap doctor !

*Anyway when i was shopping on the last one of my trip , one of the shop lady saw my eyes and she said that Dr Nara is good. So yup , meaning Dr Nara is quite famous at hatyai . She did her nose at bangkok and she is nice to let me touch it :x

Yup , my eyes still swollen too . One side more swollen maybe thats why uneven although i see a lil difference in the height.

Can i know how high did u request for your eyes? because i requested for 6.5mm parallel and it feels really high now . My epi scar also kind of come out bit but the incision and stuffs is still ok..

I bought Merdema gel cream before my surgery because i see good reviews .. Yup i think is Dermatix he meant !

Did you try email Dr Chi ?

Hi LadyVv,

I never request a height for my eyelid, just ask dr to do a more natural look with parallel eyelid. And I think mine eyelid is not height after healing.

My left eye Epi scar got come out abit and the scar colour trun red...look like scratch on below my eye...

Now start working already, but have to wear a glasses to block my thick eyelid, because it still look very obvious.

Did Dr tell you when can start using the scar gel?

I never email Dr Chi after back from surgery...

Hi xxyy,

I am using scar gel for my epi already for the eyelid i just use the gel cream he provided ..

My epi is also same , one is with Z incision not reddish but one abit reddish fading color..

can i know if you feel any stitches inside because he said my stitches is dissolving type and will dissappear in 3 months and also say that there will be permernant stitches inside which make me a lil confuse and worried. When you touched you eye lid do u feel the stitches or something inside..

My eyelid is pretty high and i am really afraid. Thanks.
