HEY EVERYONE!

Postby ukorientalgirl » Fri, 24 Sep 2010 3:18 am

Hi everyone, its been a long time since Ive been here!
Can I just say my sincere apologises for not replying or responding to alot of people here in regards to Yoskarn. The last time I was on here was probably a year ago! Reason being, I tried to help some people and replied and sent some piccies, then to find my pictures posted on the net a couple weeks later on a forum. Needless to say this really pissed me off and put me off helping anyone, and since I already have sorted my surgeries out I didnt really need to come back on here. Oh and I also forgot my password for a while which is also why I didnt bother coming on here. So for this reason I wont be sending any pictures, which I admit is unfortunate because of this incident.

In regards to the eyelash transplant, the hairs started to grow a year later. Yes a year later! The problem with the eyelash transplant is that about 50% of the hairs transplanted survived, so I only have about 20 hairs on each eye. They have made a huge difference BUT i wear alot of mascara, but if you dont wear alot of makeup it wouldnt make any difference. I am tempted to do a second round to make them fuller as I know some hair transplant surgeons recommend this. Another downfall is that the hairs grow downwards thus you need to curl your eyelashes all the time. I dont regret the eyelash transplant but I did have very high expectations for it. I do get alot of comments asking if my eyelashes are real and people saying how long they are. If only all the 40-50 hairs transplanted survived this would had been perfect!

Seems like a distant memory away since I had my surgeries. Considering a jaw reduction and brow lift next! Which is probably why am back on here (yes selfish I know sorry everyone!). Its nice to see my post have given people more confidence about going to Yoskarn and I hope everything has run smoothly for those that have gone ahead with the surgeries as being by myself having my face cut open is daunting!

Be very aware of Yoskarn!

Last October I had a face and brow lift at Yoskarn. If I tell you that I have been suffering both physically and psychologically ever since, that would be an understatement! I might go into detail later, but in the meantime if anyone would like my advice regarding Yoskarn's poor practice, please send me a private message with your question. However, I would stongly urge anyone considering the services of Professor Kunachak to think twice. You will pay far more than for any other surgeon and if anything goes wrong he will not take responsibility, but instead suggest various other correcting surgeries at great cost. Please be careful before committing to surgery at Yoskarn.

Hi
I have received so many pm's, that I feel I would now like to post my experience at Yoskarn. However, if anyone has any specific questions please feel free to pm me and I will try to clarify anything that is unclear.
Best Di

Last summer I went to see Prof K regarding a face lift, which I felt was needed. I'm not a glamorous or particularly vain person I just felt that at my age I was ready to have the sagging pulled up a little. I met with Prof K one evening at Yoskarn after he had finished whatever he does at Chulalongkorn University. His manner was nice enough, but I had a feeling he could be telling me more and it felt a bit rushed. At the consultation and after I had told him what I wanted, he asked me if I would like it done that evening, but of course I said no and I wanted to think about it. I went away and looked up the Internet and it appeared that he is highly trained and I couldn't find very much about him and most comments that I did find were positive.

I arranged to have the surgery at his clinic at the beginning of October under general anasthetic. The surgery was also scheduled for the evening and I was booked into the Aphrodite Inn, which connects to Yoskarn so it is convenient. At my pre-surgery consultation he then told me that if I had a face lift I would then need a brow lift as the forehead wouldn't look the same. This is the first thing and I think he should have told me this at our previous meeting. Of course, once you are there and ready to take the plunge it is scary enough, but then to be told you might 'look strange' without the additional forehead lift was even scarier. He said that if I agree to have it done at the same time he would charge me much less (his prices are as much as the USA anyway) so I agreed. He said he would make four small incisions that would be hidden in the hairline.
The next surprise that I had was the request for an extra 20,000 Thai Baht for the anesthetist, which I thought was included in the price, which included two nights free accommodation out of the 14 nights I decided to stay at Aphrodite Inn (about extra 24,000 Thai Baht).

I will cut the story brief.
After the bandages were removed my face was obviously very swollen, no problem I knew that would be the case. But of course we have to keep looking in a mirror as there is so much spare time. To my horror, I notice that instead of cutting the section in front of my ear and taking it behind, he had simply cut straight down the front of my ear and the scar would be entirely visible! Also, I noticed that my hairline had been pulled back considerably, despite him telling me that with 'his method' the hairline would not receed. I asked him about the scar being in front of my ear and his reply was 'it was too difficult as you have small ears' and then proceeded to tell me how it would fade, how they had treatments to hide it. I also mentioned about the hairline, to which he replied that he had to pull the forehead up further than he thought to make it look balanced!
I would have thought that both these things would be known on the consultation.

OK, so in April I'm healing OK and yes people said there is a big difference. However, for me I now had this scar in front of my ear which I was told would not be there and I have a hairline that is pulled back about two centimeters, which might not sound a lot but believe me it is!
I went back to see him in April and asked him if there was anything that could be done. He looked at his little green note thingy on me and said to my astonishment, 'do you want me to cut the scar into your ear'? I said, you told me when I asked you, that it couldn't be done and he appeared flustered looking at the notes but said nothing. He then said again ' do you want me to cut into the ear'? I said if you can, he wrote something down and said do you want it done today? At which point his assistant who had been lurking in the corner came over and showed me a price of $1,500!! I was astonished again as I thought (foolishly) that he would rectify it for free. I declined and left the office in disgust.

So, the conclusion is that I will get the scar rectified and cut into the ear but not by him and I have to learn to live with my receeded hairline. My hair is quite thick so I can pull it forward, but gone are the days that I could pull it back (a) because the hairline and (b) I need it forward to hide the horrible scar at the moment in front of my ear.

That's my story, not as bad as some horror stories I agree, but if I had known this I wouldn't have set foot inside Yoskarn. I am in no way telling anyone what they should or shouldn't do as it's a personal choice.

Hope that wherever you go, it is successful.
Best wishes
Di
