36 Yo Breast Implant & Vaser Hi Def Done. Thailand, TH

Hi Everyone!! I am on my 6th day post surgery ...

Hi Everyone!!

I am on my 6th day post surgery
Have done breast implants - 275 ml tear drop shape, my breasts were saggy and I wanted a lift more than anything!
I have also done Vaser Hi Def on arms, knees, abdomen and love handles but there was not enough fat to lift my breast the Dr said

The procedure was done in Bangkok, at Naravee Clinic, I will update as I go, please share your thoughts!!!!

THE CLINIC - NARAVEE AESTHETIC CENTER (Bangkok - Thailand)
The good.
The clinic is neat, clean, has good reputation and professional atmosphere. The doctor is also the owner and has been performing plastic surgery for many years. Apparently he is the only one qualified to perform Vaser Hi Def in Thailand, he seems quite respectable and experienced. Celebrities such as Miss Universe (Thailand) and Miss Singapore are on his portfolio.
The staff goes above and beyond to try to accommodate your requests. The head nurse is a really lovely lady. Given I could not speak thai and very few thai people do speak English, the clinic sent fruits to my room on a few occasions because there was nothing really near by where I could easily get them.

The downside
Almost no one in the clinic speaks English. There is one Phillipino girl who does, she is in charge of foreign patients and is very dedicated but lacks experience and does not speak thai (therefore is not able to facilitate interaction with thai community, businesses, etc, She also has communication issues with the majority of the staff which also makes things harder. Her duty finishes at 5PM and you have to find a way to send your message across from this point until 8am of the following day.

On the 4th day, I could walk (little) and moved to the hotel beside the clinic, it was cheap but this was not the reason. The reason was I needed to change bandages everyday at the clinic, could hardly walk or move and there was nothing else nearby.
The location of the clinic is pretty unfortunate. Almost nothing available at walking distance and who's been to Bangkok knows how painful and unpredictable is the traffic. Given I was on my own, easy access to the clinic was a necessity.
This hotel belongs to the clinic, and some employees also live there. I was given towels to cover myself instead on blankets and the bed was so hard the I ended up sleeping in the sofa to be more comfortable. No sun light, table or microwave either.

The PROCEDURE
The good
It has promising results (haven't seen them yet but hopefully)

The downside
No one quite explained me how harsh and painful the healing process is. I could not sleep, swollen and feeling pain everywhere, had to forget any pride since I was unable to shower or wash my hair or get changed, walk, even drink or pee by myself in the first 3 nights. I depended on the nurses for absolutely everything. I was most of the time just in bed, unable to move.
I am now on day 6 and need Xanax to sleep (never took tranquilizers before), and strong painkillers, so painful the healing process is.

I feel huge and my body is all swollen. I am so weak that can not walk 15 minutes without hettingeven more swollen and tired. Cant shower and haven't got energy to do normal daily tasks,, still spend most of the time in bed.

All pictures I have taken are before the surgery. Will try to take some tomorrow (1 week post op)

Please share your experiences with me!! I wonder is it is the same with everyone!!

Dr Ronachai Komthong

The Doctor seems experienced and has a vey good reputation but had no conversation with me about risks. I still don't know the risks and this concerns me a little bit. What he told me is if there is anything that requires repairs after final results he can do it and I will only pay for the anestesist. (and obviously hotels, flight tickets, food and other expenses) He is apparently the only Doctor qualified to perform Vaser Hi Def in Thailand and is the owner of the clinic. Dosctor went travelling 4 days after my surgery and I am being taken care by the nureses. We will be back in 4 days, one day before my flight back to Australia, when he will remove the stiches and evaluate initial results.

Forgot to say, try not to stay in bed too much. Moving around will help your healing, and drinking lots of water.
