I think I'll be taking fly back cover just in case there's any complications.

Hey Maggy. I used global protective solutions. Goggle their website and email them for a quote. They will then contact you 30 days before surgery to see if you are going ahead with cover.

Hi trae.Just another question..was the price u paid was the same as Dr quote before he sees u ? Thanks u

Yes it was the same quoted price. Realself really helped me have a clear idea of what I wanted or thought I needed too so it was great to go there and have the dr say the same thing.

No problem. If they do try and charge you more just let them know that wasn't the price that was quoted and they will fix it.

Hi! I just discovered this website as I'm home sick with the flu otherwise I'd be at work. I am going to Thailand for my BA scheduled Oct 3! I cannot wait and looking for all the advice, inspiration etc! I am what I think a small B cup and want to be a D/E cup, 500cc-600cc looks perfect but I understand there may be complications with bigger implants.

Dr Angkana :) I just put all my money on my CommBank travel card, super easy. Well nearly, I'll go to the post office and get some Thai baht to carry for smaller stalls/shops. I've never travelled before so I don't even know what to expect on the airplane! I'm worried they'll charge like $50 per meal on the plane haha

Hi biancaro I'll be there October 8th. Are you having your surgery In Bangkok or Phuket? I'm a small B and wanting to go up to a D I'm thinking of 350cc. Yeah recovery is more difficult but your surgeon will advise you best. Make sure to take photos of your "perfect boobs" for him. Is someone going with you for support? The main thing I've been told is to take your medicine on time and set alarms if you're sleeping and to use a straw for drinking and it's difficult to open pill containers so use a pill case or get someone to loosen all the pill bottles.

Hi I too am stressing about carrying money.. What have you decided to do? Carry cash or have a credit card? Bet you must be getting excited now!

Hi girls. I've just returned from having my BL and BA in Phuket. Best experience ever! As for the money I was advised NOT to use a commbank travel card to pay for surgery as the hospital may not expect this form of card for payment. I looked into it and discovered a lot of people had trouble paying for surgery this way. I just contacted the bank and advised them that I would be making a large payment using my credit card overseas. I transferred my boob money onto my credit card before I left. The bank does charge you more to use a credit card rather than a travel money card but I didn't want the stress of perhaps having trouble paying the bill over there. I changed up $250 into Thai Baht before I left so I had some cash on me as well. Everything is so cheap over there that this amount lasted me ages. I think in total (excluding boobs) I spent only about $600 over there. I hope this helps. Where are you having your operation?

I've got my boyfriend coming with me, hopefully he will be able to look after me. I've got a pre paid travel card from my bank. It's a card which you load up with Thai Baht (or currency of choice) and you can use it to pay for things overseas like a credit/debit card, so easy!

Oh yes I am so excited I am having dreams about it!!

Oh gosh thanks for the advice!! :) I'm having mine in Bangkok piyavate hospital

No problem. I would check with the bank if they accept travel money cards for payment. I know they are used just like a normal credit card but less fees but the hospital I went to wouldn't accept it. I'd hate for you to get there and have the added stress of not being able to pay for it. I had my surgery at Bangkok Hospital Phuket. You will love it. Nurses treat you like royalty :-)

Not check with bank I meant check with hospital about the travel card...
