its my 3rd day after surgery at TOKAI CLINIC with Dr.Pat.

i did Rhinoplasty and Dr.Pat did a little tip-plasty as well.
he charged me 800USD for everything.

The operation.
i woke up 20mins before it ended, i could feel what they were doing but was wayyy too drowsy to be shocked and all.

*just remember to ask Dr.Pat to let you sleep longer*

After-Op
I rested for about an hour before i left. my mom was with me so i was fine.
one thing though, i didnt have the splint or cast over me.

i'm really worried about shifting of the implants now.

Day 3
went for check up today. Dr.Pat says everything is ok
but since i'm leaving tomorrow, if the implants shift sent a picture to him or adjust it myself.

Service
As everyone who went to Tokai has said the NURSES are WONDERFUL ^_^.
Na, Pom, Bee, Nid are just soo sweet.
you'll feel just at home with these few girls around ^_^


I will post up pictures when the swelling is better ^_^.

HELP NEEDED:
IF my implants shift before day 10. which doctor should i go to in Singapore to get it back in place before it totally sets and is fixated on my nose?


Hey!
I jus requested a quote from Dr pat, but he charged really ex!



The cost of;surgery are as follow;



alarplasty USD 600

implant USD 600

tipplasty USD 800



The prices are in package inclusive of doctor’s fee, anesthetic, medicines, compressive garment, post op care and follow up.

HELP!?

Hi dovey,

How's your nose after day 3? I'm on my day 4 now, still looking like a monster with black eyes, red nose. However, it has been a lot better than the first day, I can see the nose shape clearer day by day. This morning I was so freaking out because my nose and tip looked so big, I told the staffs and they said nothing to worry, it would be smaller. Now I can see the nose looks better compared to the morning, or maybe I'm getting used to it.
- I have no cast/ splint either, I don't think there are problems with it. My nose is quite stiff due to excessive swelling so I can't sense the implant by touching.
- I can see my eyes being pulled closer to each other because the skin is stretched too much. Do you also experience this ? My eyes were big and round, but now they are smaller, longer, and closer to each other. This makes my face look very different and weird.

A funny thing is that Dr Pat asked me to choose a nose shape I like from photos of models/ singers in magazines and he brought it into the operation room. I chose the photo of the girl they called Thailand superstar lol. Not sure whether my nose will look like hers in one week.

I will update with photos in 1 or 2 weeks.

May I know if anyone has done this procedure with him before and how was the outcome? Upon asking him, he told me that he's not an ENT and not an American & Thai board certified plastic surgeon either and it worries me a little in that aspect.

So far, the photos that Dr. Pat showed me of his nose work are of those who are modifying their nose tip and those who have a curve nose (have a hump on the nose) and it looks pretty good. Unfortunately it's not the nose surgery which he suggested to me.

Thanks in advance :)


He is actually thai-board certified. I believe you read an old forum post, which was posted before he posted up his board-certification when pple confused about his qualifications :)

Board certification in Thailand, which is most important since he pass all the qualifying tests ( ENT ) : http://www.tokaiclinic.com/clinic/displ ... d=credit26

In America ( though this is not the main governmental board ) : http://www.tokaiclinic.com/clinic/displ ... d=credit23


Oh, I saw 1 of the post about him not being a certified cosmetic surgeon and personally asked him about this issue when I consulted him and he told me that he wasn't a Thai and American board certified cosmetic surgeon... But during the consult, I did find him to be a very nice & friendly doctor.

Maybe someone can help us to check with him about this the next time he/she is consulting Dr. Pat?[/quot


Does that mean he is not a qualified Plastic Surgeon? That sounds scary Man!!

If he is not a qualified surgeon, how can he practise in Thailand for so long? I mean wont it be illegal? Someone pls clarify this matter too as I m intending to have some cosmetic surgeries done in Tokai... but frankly, I dont mind as long as Dr.Pat delivers good, effective results with safety assured :D

HEY
i guess we missed each other by a day.
i'm on my 4th day as well. BACK IN SINGAPORE though

I look like "zhu ba jie's" wife now!
yup. i'm going through similar things. my eyes are now much smaller and narrow i think due to swelling as well.

my nose is still swollen like crazy. the skin feels really tight and all.
hopefully nothing goes wrong the next few days. cos i'm terrified if the implants shift.

yea! the nurses were so cute, they were like "choose which nose you like" and we were flipping through the pages together choosing and criticizing @_@ *oops*. i dont know the person i chose, but her nose is soooo pretty.

Anyway, when will you be back in singapore?

doverybuzz,

Id like to go around june/july time. Still researching the surgeons in thailand but looks like dr pat looks like my best bet so far as he does tiplasty and alar. Am going to sound stupid but is alar reduction the same as alar BASE reduction?
