Dr Nara

Postby Little Angel » Mon, 14 Jan 2008 3:15 pm

I went to Dr Nara with 3 other girls last month on the 15th. 2 of us did nose bridging and 2 more did lipo. I just want to remind all the girls although the price is cheap but the trauma that we went thru is so pricey.

I did my nose when I was wide awake, when i saw the knife coming to my nose I really struggle. The nurse have to hold me down, I can feel the cutting, filing and sewing.

I came back to spore, my face starts to swell. I went to see doc and the doc say its because of infection. It could be the equipment is not clean. I took a stronger set of antibiotics from the doc here and now im recovering. Im not saying Nara is not good but please dont jus think that its cheap. think abt the risk.. It's not a fairy tale girls.... like proof! then you will be pretty and perfect.

1 of them did lipo on the outer thigh (thigh got 2 parts outer and inner) and tummy. The scariest part is when Nara was still doing the lipo she woke up coz the anaesthetic was not enough to last throughout the whole process. She told me at that time she can feel a very sharp pain while he is poking. She wanted to do her inner thigh but after the incident she gave up the idea.

There will be a very big patch of bruise on the affected area, bring Zambak can apply and disperse the bruise. Nara told my fren that after doing, water will come out of the wound but it didnt happen to her. She went back to see him and he rub on the wound and push the water out for her (OUCH!)

We stay there for 5 days, so that we can recover a bit and let him check. Where will you be staying?

lucky for me, by the time i woke up the op was over and the nurses were helping to dress me up. yes bruising is horrible. i almost finish applying a whole tub of zambak.

i will do my inner thigh with dr nara, he is good =)

i am sorry to know what happened to Little Angel and friends, but I think most ppl r happy with nara's work, to be fair to him...since this is a separate thread all together from the ususal thread that we discuss his works and our (fellow forumers' experience)... "Plastic surgery in Thailand (Bangkok/hatyai)"

there are both pros & cons, but most ppl r satisfied. so, for those who com across this thread and would like to see a more general, unbiased picture of dr nara's work, pls go to the above-mentioned thread.

i had my nose revised and a chin implant inserted by nara and I am now happier than before, as compared to my experience with local PS and a certain JB clinic mentioned in this forum.

What Little Angel means, is that plastic surgery comes with a price - PAIN!
whether done in thailand or anywhere else, the pain that comes with PS is universal :P

the swelling is natural, everybody gets it... I really doubt that Dr Nara's equipment is not clean, but rather his course of anitbiotics is not strong enough for some people with weaker constitutions. I should know, I had infection at my chin implant after I came back, but nothing that another course of antibiotics could not solve... similar for other people who had infection after they came back... if his equipment not clean, everyone would be infected, not just some...

maybe it's time everyone did some homework and learn to take responsibility for their own bodies' weaknesses rather than lay blame on others...

Poor Little Angel.. hope you are doing okie now.

I can imagine that it is a very horrible experience to wake up in the middle of the op...Maybe the doc there should look into the anaesthetic problem. They are docs so i think they ought to awre how much anaesthetic to use for each person.. Just a penny of thought, is anaesthetic very expensive? :P

Hi "Little Angel" ...

I am sorry that you have such painful experience but how is it then..? I meant how is it now...., with your nose...? Any other side effects apart from the infections , liked some breathing problem or having mucus dripping...?

Sorry, to have asked these but I am interested in getting a nose job and I would liked to find out more, as you know Thailand is not any place nearer liked as Orchard to Ang Mo Kio , whereby a mrt train or bus can bring me there.... :???:

Wonder if you can show me some of the progress pictures of the nose that has been done ... So , it can help me in being more mentally prepared ...

Thanks

will be very much appreciated.

I thought there would be no pain after anaesthetic? What's the difference between local & general anaesthetic ?

anaesthetic is not expensive, but too much anaesthetic might put you into a coma, so which side would we want to err on?

local anaesthetic (LA) means injecting into that area to numb it, like when they inject into your gum to remove your wisdom tooth. general anaesthetic (GA) is when they render you unconscious entirely, so you will not be aware of tha pain at all.

after reading back, little angel's experience seems very different from most of us who have gone there. Dr Nara usually uses LA with sedative. The sedative to make us less conscious and LA to numb the area he is working on. So far, she is the only forumer i've heard from that nara comes at her with a knife while she is fully awake... hmmm...

why doesn't nara use GA? GA is supposed to be administered only by a fully qualified anaesthetist. anaesthetists' primary function is to administer GA and monitor u while u r under GA, so that u wun slip into a coma. an extra doctor wld mean extra costs, hence dr nara can keep his costs low, but yet at no extra discomfort of his patients. The reasoning is a little like the way Ikea functions :D

try the other thread for more info on dr nara, this thread is a little skewed :P

esp when the little angel has never appeared b4 to ask us questions abt nara, then suddenly posts abt a horrifying experience and swiftly disappears after that.

if u bother to find out abt the procedures b4hand etc, you will be in for much fewer nasty surprises... do your homework people!

yup... going under anaesthestic can be dangerous, it can stop your breathing if too high a dose is administered, which leads to death la..

For major ops in Singapore, where a high dose of anaesthesia is administered they would put a breathing tube down your throat, and connect you to a ventilator.. and also monintor your sedation and all your vital signs very closely

Doubt you would get that during Plastic surgery.. =x

Just my 2 cents worth and limited knowlege, I'll try to share briefly in layman terms:
PLEASE GOOGLE FOR MORE INFO....
GA, General Anesthesia has to be administered by a Medical Dr that is trained in anesthesia medicine, in Singapore it is by law. PS doctor unlikely to be the anesthesia dr. Usually an anesthesia dr is booked to do the GA. It is very expensive and the patient is temporary unconscious and will be brought back to consciousness after sugery. In the US, most plastic surgery is done with GA, like tv shows 'extreme makeover'.

LA, local anesthesia is just the area that is operated on, injected with drugs to block pain and sensation. Eg. nose or chin etc.

Most of the time in Asia, ps is done LA with deep sedation
LA - numbed area; not supposed to feel any pain and
Deep Sedation - gradually falling into a very, very deep sleep and waking up in 1, 2 or 3 hours depending on what and how much the dr inject you with. (most likely very strong sleeping pill type of meds, injected through your veins on the back of the hand, faster then taken orally)

It can get scary when you are seeing the instruments coming at you. If the dr is considerate, he is likely to wait for you to go into the deep sleep, then start. He should also calculate the time and give you the appropriate dose of sedation so you won't wake up and panic before he finishes.

If you have insomnia (already on sleeping pill) or are the light sleeper type, you might want to tell the doctor so he can give you a stronger dose. Also tell him that you'd like to be in deep sedation before he starts. Sometimes while they are talking to you and you don't answer, they assume you are sedated enough/already.

You might be feeling groggy, falling asleep, then seeing the instruments near your face...wow, wide awake and panic!!!!! Anyone could react the same way

When LA/GA wears off, there might be pain, usually the dr will give you pain killers.
