my name is Abel. I am from Germany. 33 yrs old Asian , 1.80 m tall and 75kg weight.
I decided to have plastic surgery as I was not happy with my nose, which in my case has no bridge. I did my research online regarding the different methods of Rhinoplasty and also the doctors in Bangkok. I have also email many hospitals and we have back and forth emails. While I was doing my research, I came across Vaser Hi-def Liposuction which made me very interested. I do some sports but not much. I am working as a Masseur so my job is already quite physical. I was amaze at how doctors can sculpt a body with six packs. Skeptical ! So I did some reading about this online where it is done in the USA but at a higher cost. There are also some videos in Youtube showing this method of Liposuction. Ok I am not fat or skinny, just normal. I felt I was the right candidate to have Vaser Hi-def as you need also some muscle and fat to begin with to shape the body.
So in the end I decided my choice of doctor at SP Clinic. Which at first I was a bit concerned or confused and that is because there are so many doctors in Thailand and it´s just hard to pick and choose who is better and who is not. I think these online reviews have helped me made my decision. That is why I want to contribute also to show my honest experience and let people who are interested in plastic surgery make their decisions. Sometimes it is a hospital representative who is sending me emails and I feel they don’t know some medical procedure and give me the wrong information. What I also hate is when a doctor give a price and after I tell them I book my hotel and flight, they increase their prices. I will not say which doctor but I cross him out immediately.
Ok decision time.
I made phone calls with my doctor from SP Clinic and also sent emails regarding which surgery I will be doing and also the cost, down time, pain , how long I have to stay in Bangkok. Also I sent him picture of myself front, side, back view of my face and body.
We made a appointment to have the consultation on the 20 April and surgery on the 23 April. I was going to fly back to Germany on the 4th May. I think its important to give yourself more time before you feel well enough to fly, but I guess it depends on what surgery you have.
So……. I have a silicone on the bridge of my nose and cartilage from my ear to the nose tip. I wanted it to look natural and not too high like a Caucasian. I still want to look Asian. I have a round shaped face which I wanted to slim it down abit to make my jaw and chin more defined. I also had Dimpleplasty which I think would make my smile better. And last but not least I did Vaser Hi-def Liposuction on my tummy. I had to do my Dimpleplasty about 1 week later as my face was still swollen from the face Liposuction. For the rest of the surgery I did them at the same time with ‘twilight’ anesthesia. I did not have pain during or after the surgery. I stayed 1 day at the clinic where there is a nurse who took good care of me during the night. I was abit sore and could not more so freely. It was not easy to get up from the bed to go to the toilet but I managed to pull myself up. I went back to my hotel the next day and was just sore for 5 days perhaps but by the 3rd day I was going into shopping centers for short walks and meals. For 3 days after the surgery I have to go to the clinic everyday to change dressings. From the 3rd day I could shower and I apply the cream they gave me everyday twice and took my medication regularly. 7th day I went back for check up and also to do my Dimples. The local anesthesia was slightly painful but after that I didn’t feel anything. I could not eat properly for a few days and swelling and slight pain as I have a blood clot on my cheeks. I use warm compress to try to ease the blood clot. Took many days before the pain was gone. For my face liposuction I had about 100 to 200cc of fat taken out. I expected more actually. For my tummy I had about 2000cc fat taken out. I think it is lesser but I can´t tell now because I am still swollen. I regret not doing my eyelids this time because I had one single and one double eyelid which I can fix it by using eyelash glue, but I was worried I was doing too much surgery at one time. If I knew that I would have pain after the surgery, I would have done it all at once. Anyway too late for regrets.
Overall I am happy with the results. My abs looks good so far, face still swollen abit, nose is ok so far but dimples was a bit disappointing as the left side have almost disappear regardless when I smile or not. The right side is still there and I am hoping it will turn out ok. So I guess I have only one dimple in the end. Total I paid 6000 US Dollars.
Today is 2 weeks after the surgery. I have some photos of before and after the surgery. I hope my review have helped some of you in getting some information regarding plastic surgery. And Good Luck!
