Ive decided to do some pre-wedding “body work” so busy searching Thailand doc’s online. Its been quite an experience! I am surprised at the level of proffesionalism my case has been handled with, i submitted a few requests online to various reputable hospitals and initially they declined saying i should loose some weight first- i was upset initially but thought hey, very proffesional of them! if it was all about money they would have probably said hell yeah come over we’d suck the lard out of you! ha ha.
well i have lost a fewe KG and resubmitted my request which has just been approved. very excited and will post pics of the process- befores and afters and experience of course.
Surgery is planned for Mid-August.
Anyone else planning the same?

So many horror stories of women going abroad to have surgery. As soon as I saw Thailand I just thought no!

By the way that’s a heck of a lot of surgery, what does your fi think about it and are you sure you want to put your body through that?

Your whole body is going to be so sore…
If you’re THAT determined, just do the face and the 2 breast augmentations. Most others can be accomplished with weight loss, which you have 6 months to do.

That seems a bit excessive.

I ASSUME they just gave you estimates for everything they could do and you wouldn’t do all of that? That is a ton of work and only 4 months to recover? I know you could easily recover in that time but you quite easily can’t if there are any type of complications. To each their own, good luck. When I think about surgery realistically, I think I adore my flabby arms and saggy boobs. lol

I think this sounds like a whole lot! Way too much. I’ve lost almost 100lbs and (way beofre there was a ring on my finger) my fiance and I talked about it and decided that if it would make me feel better about myself then a tummy tuck would be a good idea. I had almost 5 lbs of skin removed from my stomach area. I was in bed for two weeks, I needed my Fiance to help me shower and get dressed. I was home for another two weeks working on standing up straight. I couldn’t cough or laugh or sneeze without crying for two months. I can say now that it was totally worth it, but I also had one procedure done with one very reputable doctor. I’ve heard so many horror stories about women who’ve gone through all of these things and hate the results and spent their live savings on it and so on. Its not something to take lightly and it isn’t something that you should consider doing with one (understandably important) day of your life in mind. Its a lot, I hope that you seriously think it over and make an informed decision along with your SO.

Are you really going to be doing that much surgery? I was in agony for 2 weeks after my breast augmentation. I honestly felt like a truck ran over me; I needed help to get up, lie down, stand up straight… and you’re doing it in Thailand too. I assume you’ll be staying there for the after-care? Because you’ll need to go in for check ups and stitches removal.

I would choose the 2 areas that bother you the most and the rest treat with a good diet and exercise regimen.
It is your body, and I respect your wishes, but please consider the scarring, the recovery period, and the shock that your body will be going through. Surgery is a temporary fix, whereas healthy habits last a lifetime.

I don’t think it has to be bad out of the country, but never heard of a big industry for it in Thailand. I know Brazil has a huge plastic surgery industry and it’s done well if you get the right doctor like here in the states. I would love to get a little lipo too! Too scared and too expensive. Good luck and research.

@BoiledPNut: This. Good god.

I completely understand wanting to look good before your wedding but I would not do this in Thailand. You know the saying “you get what you pay for”? Yeah, it applies more so than ever when it comes to plastic surgery.

I’ve heard so many horror stories about Thailand cosmetic surgeons seriously I’m not kidding.
Anotherthing to think about is are you insured if something goes wrong? If not, how much will it cost you to put right? Also after having these procedures, how much time will you be taking off work?
Sorry but I have to say this, my fiancé is marrying me for me and he doesn’t want me to turn myself into something fake. I can’t believe a guy would let you do all this to yourself and in Thailand of all places. Brazil wouldn’t be much better I’m sure!

I’m actually recuperating from pre-wedding plastic surgery myself. I had a breast reduction, lift and liposucton done on my back almost 2 weeks ago. I also has a lump of excess tissue that got pushed up into my armpit removed (I actually had to have it biopsied anyways as my Dr was a little concerned about it since it was a pretty big lump, should have the results soon). I went in not really for cosmetic reasons, but for health reasons. I’m 5’4, 150 lbs and was a 32G, now I should be a 32C, which looks much better. I figured now is as good a time as any so I can get to the wedding dress shopping. The lipo wasn’t really necessary, but the plastic surgeon said that it wouldn’t be much extra to remove some back fat that got pushed into wrong places due to my chest size.
I have to be honest though, lipo doesn’t really do that much. I had almost 2 lbs of fat removed from my back and to be honest, I really can’t tell the difference. It does sound like you are doing too much and much of what you want to do can be done through diet and exercize. (As a side note, my surgery was $4400 total).
