Breast Augmentation

 

PROCEDURE OVERVIEW

Surgery: Breast Augmentation (Mammoplasty, Boob Job, Breast Implants Surgery, Silicone Implants, Saline Implants, BA)

A breast augmentation will replace lost breast volume and can help women who are dissatisfied with their breast size or have uneven sized breasts. 

A cohesive silicone gel or saline implant is placed in a pocket either directly behind the breast tissue or underneath the pectoral muscle.

The incision for the implant will depend upon your physical characteristics. The common incision sites are either in the armpit or along the breast fold or around the nipple. The placement of the implant may be above the muscle, below the muscle or dual plane as recommended by the surgeon.

A breast augmentation cannot reposition breasts to make them closer together or change their basic shape. If sagging is present or to reposition or change the projection of the nipples, a breast lift is likely to be recommended and can usually be performed together with a breast augmentation if required.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How old do I have to be to have this surgery?

You must be at least 20 years of age to have elective surgery in Thailand. Patients under the age of 20 years need to provide a signed Consent Form from their parent/guardian if the surgeon accepts the case.

How soon can I have this surgery?

We can secure priority appointments for our clients subject to the surgeon’s availability. However it is best to request an appointment well in advance so that the surgeon can advise you about the steps to take before coming for surgery.

How soon after breast feeding can I have this surgery?

Usually, the surgeon will only perform a breast surgery 12 months after you have stopped lactating. Your surgery cannot proceed if there is still milk in the ducts. You can test this by squeezing the breast.

What brands of implants are used?

Leading brands from the USA such as Allergen, Mentor and McGahn, Eurosilcone from France and Silimed the top brand in South America. Not all hospitals use the same brands. Please ask the surgeon about the brand he recommends for your case at the consultation. If you have a specific brand preference, please ask us which hospital carries them before booking your surgery. PIP implants are not used.

What type of implant is used?

Round cohesive silicone gel implants, also known as gummy bear implants. There are many different profiles of round implants available. The surgeon will talk to you about the one that best suits your case.

Are teardrop implants available?

Teardrop implants may be available at a higher cost to the round implant. Teardrop implants aren’t suitable for all cases and aren’t available at all hospitals. If you want a teardrop implant please ask us which hospital carries them before booking your surgery.

Are Furry Brazilian Implants available?

Brazilian implants are made by Silimed Limited. Their furry implant has not been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) U.S.A. Some hospitals in Thailand can provide the furry implant on request but you will have to sign a document acknowledging the potential risks of using a furry implant. If you want a Brazilian or furry implant, please ask us which hospital carries them before booking your surgery.

Are saline implants available?

Saline implants may be available at some hospitals. They are not commonly used as the surgeons generally recommend the silicone cohesive gel implants. If you want a saline implant please ask us which hospital carries them before booking your surgery.

How long does the operation take and will I be asleep?

The procedure takes about 2-3 hours under general anaesthetic.

Where is the implant placed?

It may be placed over or under the chest muscle, or partially over and under (dual plane placement). The surgeon will advise you about the best placement option for you at the consultation.

Where is the incision for the implant?

This depends on your body type and the surgeon’s recommendation. The incision site can be through the armpit or areola or under the breast fold.

If I want a C or D Cup, what size implant should I have?

This depends on the amount of breast tissue/volume you currently have. The implant will enhance your current volume. There is no direct conversion from cc’s to cup size. If you want to get an idea about what implant size you might need to achieve your desired cup size, you can try the rice test. Wear a bra with the cup size you would like to achieve. Fill the bra with rice to the fill it out to size you would like. Empty the rice from the bra and weigh the rice. The weight will be about the same amount in cc’s For example if the rice weights 300 grams, then the implant size will be about 300cc

Will a breast augmentation reduce breast sagging?

A breast augmentation will restore breast volume or balance the size of the breasts but it cannot correct sagging or drooping. A breast lift is usually recommended for sagging or drooping and can be performed at the same time as a breast augmentation if needed.

How long will I be in hospital?

1 night in hospital is normally required after surgery

How long do I have to stay in Thailand?

The surgeon usually recommends a stay of at least 10 nights after surgery. This is to allow you time to recover and to have a follow up consultation with the surgeon and removal of sutures. The surgeon may change the recommended time overseas based on age, medical conditions or where more than one surgery is being performed.

Why can’t I leave sooner?

For your own safety you should observe the recommendation. Air travel presents risks such as deep vein thrombosis. To leave sooner would present an unnecessary risk. If you cannot stay the recommended time it is best not to have surgery overseas.

Will I have a consultation with the surgeon before surgery?

Yes, the surgeon will examine you and take various measurements before your surgery. He will show you implant types and sizes and answer any questions you may have.

What are the risks associated with a breast augmentation?

There are always risks in having surgery. This applies whether you have surgery overseas or at home. Some of the risks associated with a breast augmentation include bleeding and hematoma formation, fluid accumulation, infection, poor healing of incisions, keloid and hypertrophic scar formation, changes in nipple or breast sensation which may be temporary or permanent, breast asymmetry, capsular contracture, implant leakage or rupture, rippling (wrinkling of the skin over the implant), pain, which may persist, and risks associated with anaesthesia and possibility of revisional surgery. Smokers may experience a delay the healing process and are at a higher risk of complications. Please talk to the surgeon about all of the risks before proceeding with surgery.

Will there be scaring?

Scaring will be present where the incisions were made. These may fade to fine lines or may remain obvious after healing is completed. How your scars will appear depends on how your body heals.

How should I prepare for surgery?

When we have your case assessed by the surgeon before you travel overseas, you may be given some specific instructions by the plastic surgeon about preparing for surgery. Generally, you will be asked to stop some medications and all vitamin supplements, alcohol and smoking. You must not stop any prescription medications without first consulting your prescribing physician or instruction from the surgeon.

What should I do after surgery?

Proper breast massage is very important after surgery in order to achieve a good breast shape and lower the risk of capsular contractures. During follow-up, the surgeon will instruct you on the proper way this is done. However, the occurrence of capsular contractures is also dependent on the body’s healing process after surgery and this condition can still occur even with proper massage.

When can I start exercising?

Usually exercise and normal physical activities can resume in about 1-2 months after surgery however please ask your surgeon about this as it can vary from case to case.

TESTIMONIALS

Denee T Melbourne from Australia

I am VERY happy……and even more impressed with your services. I have already recommended you and your company to quite a few people and hopefully they all contact you in the near future. 

Top marks to the Stunning Makeovers Team. You made everything so easy for me and took a huge amount of stress and concern off my shoulders prior to departure and even after landing in Thailand. It was great to know that you were still there for me and my many silly questions.

So many of my friends were sceptical of having procedures done in Thailand, but after hearing my story they are all so keen to visit and have their own procedures done there!

A HUGE thank you to Dr. Witoon also………Top marks to the Team at Stunning Makeovers. I chose Stunning Makeovers because you had the best information available…. 

The hospital staff were GREAT! They treated me VERY well and the staff even made my friend comfortable and welcome.

The nursing and the support staff were magic. I fell that it was so much more superior to here. The service was impeccable - what else can be said. I would definitely return for more surgery/dental treatment.

I’m very happy with Stunning Makeovers service from start to finish, from booking my trip to the contact from Paul while overseas, felt He would answer questions freely and I felt if I needed to talk to him while out of the country I would and could with no problems

Nurses were very beautiful hands-on woman, I feel you would never receive that kind of treatment form New Zealand nurses like I did from them, once I was taken back to my room after surgery my room filled with nurses ready to assist me, they were wonderful very happy with nursing staff.

The Hospital was very clean, with great staff, my room was really nice almost like a hotel, had every thing I needed including a fridge stocked with drinks,   

I would use Stunning Makeovers again and would recommend any time, great way of doing cosmetic surgery, with the help from Paul.

Angela C from Hamilton New Zealand

From the very start of my enquiries, Paul has been very helpful. He made sure all my questions were all answered and sent relevant information that I’ve needed to know. His service was great and very welcoming.

I knew from the start that I have chosen the right agent to get my surgery done overseas.

They made sure that everything is all well organised. He even made phone calls the day I was leaving. 

He has given me a lot of support. The communications was constant. And he even sent me beautiful flowers in the hospital. 

He made sure I was home safely and happy……..

I would like to give my sincere thanks to Paul McGowan for his professional way of organising my surgery. I am truly grateful for his great support from start to end. I am completely satisfied with all the service I received from Stunning Makeovers.

The surgeon was very open and friendly. He made feel safe and I am very satisfied ….. The nursing staff was super, everyone is wonderful and caring. My recovery was good. They really treat you well.

Melinda M from Brisbane, Australia

I am very satisfied with Stunning Makeovers. My surgeon was really clear on details and what to expect after surgery.

All the nursing and support staff were very nice and took the time to try and understand and help me and the services and facilities were really good. I would return for more surgery if I have the money.  

The cruise was great and really worth the money! I enjoyed myself very much and so did my travelling companion.

I would recommend Stunning Makeovers to others because Paul answered all questions in a very clear and understanding way. 

Jennifer W from Northland New Zealand

What is there to say about Stunning Makeovers and the service you both provide?  

FANTASTIC!!!!

Obviously, I had my doubts and concerns about having cosmetic surgery in a foreign country, and so far away from my family. But, I am so pleased that I had you both as my support team!!

Without your experience and knowledge regarding Thailand and its medical practices, I would probably be sitting here still contemplating when I would ever do it (ten years of hum and harring)!!!

So first off – THANK YOU BOTH FOR EVERYTHING!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOUR SERVICE….and will continue to do so, to any one out there, who is contemplating cosmetic surgery of any kind!!

…….The surgeon is so kind, so professional, and very honest in terms of knowing and recommending what was best for me!! He truly had my best interests at heart.........

His team that looked after me in the Hospital are BRILLIANT! I wanted to bring them home with me! This is where my biggest concerns, worries, anxiety etc…were eased!  Not to say I wasn’t nervous and a little apprehensive. But over all, they put my mind to rest, and I found myself “going with the flow”.

I spent that night in hospital and a day later, hit the shopping malls with my friends. I couldn’t believe it!

I have followed through on all the advice I was given by the surgeon and his nursing staff (re looking after my new accessories)

Yanhee hospital was under going a structural face lift for further expansion, but don’t be put off by temporary external appearances! It is lovely and clean inside and the service by all nursing staff that are there to greet and look after you is exceptional!! and they look fabulous as well!! They are so professional in appearance and the way they treat local and international visitors.

As regards my accommodation: once again, completely SATISFIED! It is clean, modern, and the hotel staff is friendly, polite and takes a personal interest in you while under their care.

A week after my surgery, I needed to return to the hospital for my check up and to have my stitches removed.

Well, with all that aside, an extra bonus of this trip…..visiting a country I never thought I would ever go to, seeing and learning all about their culture and way of life, and of course getting to know the Thai people themselves. If the opportunity arises, I will definitely take my family there, and hopefully, visit their stunning coastline and resorts!!

After 10 long years of should I, shouldn’t I, I’VE DONE IT, and I couldn’t be happier!! 

xx from Auckland, New Zealand

I chose Stunning Makeovers because it is a New Zealand company and were quick to respond to my initial enquiry, use certified surgeons and accredited hospitals.

Thank you Paul for organising everything so well for me and remaining professional. 

I can’t believe it’s such a short time ago that i was in Thailand. It was pretty much straight back to work for me and sometimes i find myself thinking if was i there at all - but I have a constant reminder that I was!

My experience was very positive. The hospital and my surgeon were great and I especially enjoyed sharing the experience with the other ladies and enjoying Bangkok and the Thailand culture. (group trip)

Thank you for organising everything so well for me.

I would prefer my name to remain confidential.

Kirstin W from Auckland, New Zealand

I chose Stunning Makeovers because the home page was great and had heaps of information. Paul was very helpful and gave us answers straight away.

The nursing staff were lovely and polite. The hospital service was great once we got taken up to our rooms, big and spacious.

I just want to say thank to you both.  I am really happy ……..!

KP from Melbourne, Australia

It’s been about a month now and. my eyes are healing well and although still a little puffy I am excited to see the final result. My breast augmentation ….full and a cup size bigger which is exactly what I wanted.

The nurses were very nice and came every time I called. Most of them spoke English which was good.

What I am most pleased about is the liposuction, I have a waist that I have never had before and I am wearing tight tops that I never felt comfortable in previously. I am so happy …..!

Overall I am extremely happy with how everything went and am already planning my nose surgery and tummy tuck for the future back at Yanhee.

Tina G from Tauranga New Zealand

I would certainly recommend Stunning Makeovers. 

I enjoyed my experience,…. and overall the organisation. I like their website.

Ruth P from New Plymouth New Zealand

I travelled with my daughter and we both had to be happy with the provider and through Stunning Makeovers, a NZ based company we found this.

The in country transfer service, surgeon, nursing team and hospital facilities were excellent.  

Would suggest Stunning Makeovers to organise more group trips as we found the friendship and support of others totally awesome.  

Also got to do things as a group is so much easier.  

We love the Thai people, their food and culture wonderful.  Only wish is we could handle spicier food.

Carley D from NSW, Australia

I chose to go with Stunning Makeovers due to the company being extremely professional helpful from my initial contact. Most importantly there was no pressure which gave me peace of mind.

It is easier to have someone do all the organising and know that everything is done and is above board in a professional manner.  I am very satisfied and would recommend the service to friends and family.

Thank you Paul for all of your assistance. I'm really happy with the results.

The Surgeon was very good he explained everything to me and was more than happy to answer any questions. Dr Pitch is very personable. The Dentist was great and staff were all very friendly.

I really enjoyed the time in Bangkok my stay was very pleasant. I also spent time learning how to do hair extensions from one of the local hair salons and have bought everything back to do here.

I met many people from all over and of course I told them why I was there. Most were surprised and asked me how I managed to organise everything, hence I told them about Stunning Makeovers.

My mother was also very impressed and she was the hardest to convince the surgery would be a success. She passes on her best wishes.

Lizette B from Otago New Zealand

I Googled and made an online enquiry on Stunning Makeovers website.  

I had a relaxing time after my surgery.

I would return to Thailand for dental work. 

Shevaun P from Wellington, New Zealand

I chose Stunning Makeovers through word of mouth from a past client.  I had already been considering Stunning Makeovers through google/web advertising. I wanted to use a local company and I liked the website and information available.

Overall I am satisfied with their service. The river cruise was fantastic and definitely a highlight.

Nursing and support staff were friendly and courteous. Filipino nurses spoke excellent English and were very useful on the international wards.

The hospital was clean and easy to navigate.

I would consider returning for either surgery or dental treatment if I felt I required it.  I will return in 10 years time when breast prosthesis requires replacement.

I would recommend Stunning Makeovers as I feel it’s an evolving company and the director appears keen to grow and improve the service the business provides.  

Many thanks. I am very pleased with the service …..

Stefenie F from Townsville, Australia

Just a quick email to let you know I had a ball on my holiday! Thank you so much for organising everything. 

I could not be happier……t and the level of service from not only the hospital staff but the hotel and driver service as well. I will definitely be recommending you to everyone! 

Thanks again.

Lyn C from Bay of Plenty,New Zealand

I went with Stunning Makeovers as I was referred by a friend. Their service is excellent and I am satisfied with their service.

My surgeon was a llittle bit ‘fast talking’ and hard to understand but we got there in the end. The nursing staff was excellent and the service and facilities were also excellent.

I would definitely return for further surgery.  The hospital / service is better than can be offered in New Zealand plus the bonus of a two week holiday as well for less than the cost of surgery alone in New Zealand was very beneficial.

Overall it was a great experience and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone wanting to go for any plastic surgery/reconstruction.

Claire H from Auckland, New Zealand

Stunning Makeovers was easy to deal with. The website has good information with options and price.

Paul was helpful and his service was great and arrangements were well organised both here and in Thailand.

My surgeon was lovely ….. The nursing staff were great and always checking on me.  I loved the hospital and the way they had all the staff dressed. It was an experience.  The hospital service was good and facilities were clean. The staff were helpful and professional.

I sure would return for more surgery. I have no hesitation recommending Stunning Makeovers for their organisation, helpfulness and price.  The whole deal was very well done.

….the hotel I stayed at was in a good area for checking the city out and a really nice hotel too …...

Christina P from Hamilton New Zealand

I heard good things about Stunning Makeovers through a cousin. I am very satisfied with their service.

I would recommend Stunning Makeovers as their service was fine, ……………..

Melanie R from Sunshine Coast, Australia

I am absolutely stoked with everything!!! I couldn’t be happier……..  The pain was no trouble at all and I have recovered well :) No bruising, little swelling and feeling FANTASTIC!! :)

Thank you for everything

Felicity C from New Plymouth, New Zealand

I took the one of the soonest appointments available, delayed by a couple of weeks so that I could meet my brother in Thailand.

I chose Stunning Makeovers because out of all the companies that I contacted, Stunning Makeovers responded immediately with clear concise advice and maintained contact and support throughout.

I have found that Stunning Makeovers were helpful and supportive throughout.

Both surgeons were pleasant to deal with. I felt they dealt with me honestly and in my best interests.  The nursing staff were very helpful and friendly; 

I would have no problems with coming back if more treatment were required. 

I have no hesitation recommending Stunning Makeovers and I found Stunning Makeovers very supportive. 

Clare T from South Island, New Zealand

I travelled at the time I did because I wanted to be fully recovered by summer.  I went with Stunning Makeovers because their website was easy to follow and their replies were prompt and efficient. I couldn’t have got any better service!!!

I found my surgeon to be very polite and spoke fantastic English. The nursing were amazing, courteous and understanding.  All and all the hospital was great and would definitely return to Yanhee.

I will definitely recommend Stunning Makeovers and have told everyone how good the service was.  I would be very surprised if they managed to get better service from another company.

Thanks soooo much Paul for everything.  The whole experience was fantastic and went without a hitch. Your service was great and found it very personal. Will definitely be recommending you guys to anyone interested in plastic surgery.

Melinda M from Brisbane, Australia

I chose Stunning Makeovers because they had better choices on where to go for surgery. I am very satisfied with Stunning Makeovers service. 

The Surgeon was really clear on details and what to expect after surgery and all nursing and support staff were very nice and took the time to try and understand and help me. All services were really good

I would recommend Stunning Makeovers to others because all questions were answered in a very clear and understanding way

Bonnie M from Auckland, New Zealand

We had previously used Stunning Makeovers and found them to be good. Heard good comments about Stunning Makeovers from friends originally

We are satisfied with Stunning Makeovers service and found the experience at hospital to be 

good and would/have recommended to other kiwis, very professional. Good English.

The hospital has overall good facilities, that are clean tidy and professional

If I needed more work in the future I would definetly go back before doing anything here in NZ.

I would recommend Stunning Makeovers to others because it makes it easier and takes the stress out of everything such as contacting doctors/dentists and gives peace of mind. Stunning Makeovers are knowledgeable and can answer most questions straight away.

Awesome work - .thanks

Natalie P from Queensland, Australia

I am a little bruised around my mouth due to the lip augmentation but when the swelling and bruising goes down I will send you some photos.  The laser resurfacing was amazing! ……. all freckles, sun damage and pigmentation peeling off my face within days, what an awesome feeling.  

I also did a daily video diary to show the results as they happened.  I would be more than happy to share any of my before and after pics or videos to anyway who is interested in finding out exactly what to expect from the procedures.  I know it would have been good to see someone go through it before.

Anyway Paul, thanks again for your assistance and support.  I am so, so happy ……. I can’t tell you enough.  But you will see why I’m so happy when you see the after pictures and compare them with the before.  Major difference!!

Diana P from Tauranga New Zealand

This was a birthday present for myself. I chose Stunning Makeovers because I liked how helpful and fast they were with response to questions etc, plus they were very helpful with ideas of things to do in Thailand.

I am super satisfied with Stunning Makeovers service. I feel like I got everything I could’ve asked for.

I would recommend anyone thinking of plastic surgery etc to go through Stunning Makeovers and have referred a lot of people to have a look at the website.

My surgeon was lovely, he spoke a bit of English which helped with the consult. He also made me feel very comfortable and helped me choose the right size implants for my body and answered any questions I had.

The nursing and support staff were Awesome Awesome Awesome is all I’ll say, I just loved the way nurses were with me through the whole process.

Overall, I’m just so happy with everything. The facilities were very clean, tidy and well maintained.

I felt like I was looked after well in all areas from consult to follow up :) I definitely would go back for more surgery

From my own personal experience I was overall satisfied with everything so think what you guys are doing is awesome.

I would just like to thank you guys in helping me with the experience I had. The surgery has really changed my life and I feel so confident now.

Simone T from Melbourne, Australia

We both looked on-line for a company that could give us professional discreet service and answer and queries we had at any given moment. Stunning Makeovers provided both.

Very pleased with the email contact and swift replies to any questions. The detailed itinerary was especially thorough and easy to read.

The surgeon was pleasant and willing to discuss any questions we had. He tended to me every morning and I was overly satisfied with his surgical skills.

The other surgeon was a very nice man that had all the time in the world to sit and answer questions and explain to the best of his knowledge. He was very capable and I felt relaxed and confident that he was the right doctor for my procedures.

He tended to me every morning and questioned me for aches and pains of which I had none. 

On my follow up exam he was very pleased with my results as was I and we left it at that. The support staff were extremely helpful and understanding. They were very nice people who offered information and assistance way beyond our asking. As with the nursing staff, you only had to ask and you weren’t kept waiting long at all. They were all genuinely caring and interested in your problems or queries.  

The range of services at the hospital was very impressive. It was quite a large hospital with every service available all under the one roof. This was very refreshing. No running around in cars or travelling from A to B. Just up and down elevators.  

Despite my initial reservations about having surgery in a foreign country, I would probably return for future procedures because the overall results are worth noting. 

The whole experience was one I would never forget and have basically regained a zest for taking care of myself all over again. It is extremely affordable and a culturally diverse experience at the same time. I am already planning and day dreaming about when and where and how.  

I would recommend Stunning Makeovers to others because of the common language shared with Paul and feeling that I’m not as big an idiot as I may sometimes feel. The professionalism is very high and the contact via text messaging was both surprising and welcome. It made me feel like I was being looked out for in a place where I knew absolutely no one. Thank you. 

Sue B from Sydney, Australia

We chose Stunning Makeovers because they returned the information and emails quicker than others and seemed to know exactly what we wanted and answered all our questions no matter how stupid they sounded.

They made us feel very comfortable with the idea of surgery overseas. I am absolutely satisfied with Stunning Makeovers service and could not speak more highly of them.

Everything when like clockwork and we didn’t have to worry about a single thing. All our transport was on time, the hospital was professional, clean and better than those in Australia.

The staff at the hospital were fantastic and always kept an eye on Sue to make sure she was comfortable. Our contact at the hospital was great and always greeted us with a smile. People need to know how professional these people are as it is well worth the trip.

The Surgeon was great. He was professional but kept Sue calm by joking a little. He made the correct decisions before and during surgery and the result was fantastic and even our local Doctor in Australia said it was an A grade job.

The nursing staff were fantastic people, always smiling…….they knew what we wanted and always asked if there was anything they could do for us.

The service can’t be faulted. As I said, everything was on time, the people were polite and we were well looked after throughout the whole process.

The facilities were second to none. They were extremely clean and there were so many people looking after us. When they sent Sue for X-ray’s we weren’t sitting around for hours instead it was all instantaneous.

We will absolutely return for more surgery and thinking of doing so in 2 years. We are going to plan another trip to take care of a few more dentals issues and perhaps a new tattoo!

We would absolutely recommend Stunning Makeovers and already have. We have a couple of friends that are getting very excited about the prospect and I said I would help them through the process as they are planning the same operations as Sue.

Keep up the great work Paul, Sue could not be happier and I’m smiling again with my new teeth.

Kelly B from Auckland New Zealand

Stunning Makeovers was referred to me by a friend who had been over to Thailand and had surgery.

Excellent service. They arranged everything, from before we left, to when we got over there and return back. Their service was of a very high standard and I would definitely use them again in the future and would be happy to refer people to them.

I would just like to thank Paul for everything he has done for me and my family. I wasn’t sure before we left, but he kept in touch with us the whole time to make sure everything was going ok.

I came out of surgery and there waiting for me was a message from PAUL making sure everything went ok. I would recommend this service over our New Zealand service any time. Very professional!The hospital and the people were outstanding. The facilities were very excellent and clean and my surgeon was very professional. They took care of me and my family.

The surgeon was excellent. He related well to me and my husband and he was straight up about everything. It wasn’t about the money, but what I needed to have done. I also would like to thank him and his team. They did a fantastic job and I am very happy.

Nurses and support team were very caring and supportive of my needs. They made me feel safe and comfortable. Their rooms were of a very high standard! The service was great! They ran around after us the whole time. From airports to hospital, to checks, and home again. Thank you!

The hospital run a very high level of professionalism and make you feel safe and supported.

I would like to thank them and my surgeon for all their support and help.

It was a great experience for me and my family and I would return for more surgery. I would definitely recommend Stunning Makeovers, they provide a great service, great people to do business with and happy with everything you did for us.

Thank you Paul and the doctor very much. Also the hotel that we stay in was also excellent and I would stay there again with me and my family. My son had a ball. The people were very lovely and always happy to help you.

Thank you for your prompt, professional service. Most impressed.

Stunning Makeovers was very good with follow up. The surgeon was great and listened to what I said with understanding. He was very friendly and put me at ease.

Suzanne P from Queensland Australia

The surgeon was a very good guy who knows what he is doing. The coordination staff were very good and friendly.

AW from Sydney, Australia

Well what can I say? What an experience it has been.

I am more than happy to provide you feedback and if there is anything I have left out please let me know.

From the moment we landed at Phuket and grabbed our luggage our transport was waiting for us and was given a folder with our itinerary and surgery information which i thought was very professional.

He took us straight to the resort. What a  lovely place the resort was. We were greeted by warm friendly staff that were more than helpful with our bags and gave us cool towels to cool off.

We were taken to our room and was quite impressed with the resort, very clean and all had aircon in the room. We decided to upgrade again as we were upstairs and thought climbing the stairs after surgery might be a little difficult. It was absolutely lovely when I returned staff had moved all our belongings and luggage for us.

On the day of surgery I was very nervous as to what was about to happen. I saw Dr. Rushapol who was such a lovely doctor and we went through the consultation drawings and markings.  He told me his day was dedicated to me. I was very impressed with my breast consultation. He went through different sizes and made decision together as to what was best. 

They took me to my room and I was very impressed with the room and the facility, I have worked in many hospitals here back home in Australia and can say the standard was the same, if not better than some hospitals here.  The nursing staff were absolutely gorgeous and I was so impressed with their uniforms and standard of care.

I was told at all times what they were doing to me, and they prepped me for surgery. I was waiting in my room ready to go. I remember being wheeled downstairs and Dr. Rushapol coming in, asking if I was ready to go. Before I knew it, I was back in my room, 13 hrs later with plaster on my nose and wrappings around my chest.  

The nursing staff were amazing, every time I buzzed they were there within 5 minutes giving me more pain relief and medicine for nausea. the first 2 days were tough which is to be expected but every day got better, Dr. Rushapol visited me every day and told me what he had did, and said my nose was pretty damaged and totally had to reconstruct my entire nose.

I spent all up four days in hospital and I never felt rushed to leave hospital at any time, I could have stayed 1 more night but he was happy with the fact that I had Sue with me, with some nursing background.  

On leaving they supplied me with all the medication I needed including, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and swelling, pain relief, vitamins and minerals. They covered everything and I was just so impressed.

Once back at the resort they were wonderful and said just to ask if there was anything I needed.  I just stayed in bed or by the pool for the first week trying to recover as my face and eyes were swollen black and blue with plaster and plugs up my nose.  All the follow up visits were great and finally had the plaster removed after about 10 days, wow, I was wrapped and couldn’t believe how much better I could breathe.

My nose still quite swollen but understand it will take few months for swelling to come down. On my last consultation, I ….. gave Dr. Rushapol a big cuddle and thanked him so much and told him I be back next year.

I chose Stunning Makeovers as right from the start I found opening your website informative and professional. Once I contacted you I found the service and you personally Paul (you have a lovely warming comforting voice over the phone) to be quick and honest with all your correspondence and I thought it was great how you called me and kept in contact with me throughout the whole process.

I thought it was wonderful how all the appointments and transport was arranged and at no time had any trouble with it and it was always on time. I am extremely happy with Stunning Makeovers and was giving out your name and website to people that were interested in surgery. I’ve told them how professional everything was and awesome the hospital staff and facilities were at Phuket International Hospital

I would definitely recommend Stunning Makeovers to anyone and that impressed I would be happy to become an ambassador for Stunning Makeovers.

I would definitely have surgery again, and will be organising another trip next year WITH YOU as they could not do my teeth because I had surgery to my face so I will organise another trip for my teeth. I will also be bringing a few friends for surgery including my daughter.

I went to the doctor back here at home for a check up and to give them all the information as to what medication I was on and what surgery had been preformed on me for my medical history.

My doctor was very impressed with the nose and breast,she checked my stitches 70 around each nipple and was very impressed with his needle work. No sign of infection and healing just lovely but put me on some more anti-swelling as still quite swollen.

Well Paul, I don’t know what else to say but what an experience it was, I THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH for making my dreams come true and for all your support and help. You have been fantastic and would love to meet you in person one day to say thank you, no more sinus problems yipeee!  

I going back to work this afternoon, on light duties so should be ok. I will just take it easy over the next few weeks,. 

Thank you again and if there is any other comments u need from me, please feel free to ask, also happy to chat with other people about my experience.

My kindest and warmest regards 

Rebecca W from Brisbane, Australia

I choose Stunning Makeovers because a friend recommended them.

I am very happy with Stunning Makeovers service and the doctor was fantastic.

I will recommend Stunning Makeovers to other and thank you for all of your help and follow up

Nikki C from Christchurch, New Zealand

I was totally impressed with the hospital and how smoothly all the pre-op tests went.  New Zealand hospitals could learn a lot!

Many thanks for everything you have done to get this adventure happening.

Now I think I can hear MBK calling to me...

Madeline C from

I chose Stunning Makeovers because the price was good and they were quick to respond. I emailed a few other companies but Stunning Makeovers came across as more organized and professional.

All the staff at Yanhee were wonderful and really helpful. I had no trouble with communicating. In addition, the service as well as the nursing and support staff were great. Facilities were good as my hotel room was a perfect size and everything I needed was close by. 

I would return for more surgery/dental treatment. I would recommend Stunning Makeovers to others as they have some of the best surgeons in the world. Everything ran smoothly and the treatment was fantastic with great results.

I am very satisfied with Stunning Makeovers services. 

Olivea B from Tauranga, New Zealand

I will tell you now that the whole trip exceeded our expectations!!! We had an awesome holiday and surgery was amazing, loving the results.

My husband especially (he was a bit sceptical of the whole going to Thailandfor surgery thing!) was totally impressed. We felt completely safe and at ease with everything. Basically, I didn’t feel nervous or scared at all.

The hospital experience was again amazing, it was like a 5 star hotel, all staff including the surgeon were super friendly. The resort was fantastic also! I have nothing bad to say about any of it....

I have already recommended ALL my friends to go through Stunning Makeovers. I will definitely be going back.

Julia V from New Zealand

I found the company online and after meeting Paul and Swee personally at an information evening, I felt confident to plan for surgery overseas. 

The surgeon was professional and helpful. The dentist definitely knows her stuff.  The results of the work are great. I had a couple of crowns that she was not happy with when they arrived from the technicians so she sent them back.  This was a pain in relation to having to have extra trips to the dentist but I was more than happy to do this to get work that she thought was a higher standard.

Service was excellent at the time of surgery and during subsequent visits; staff were very helpful and quick to offer assistance when needed. The hospital facilities was excellent, definitely as good as any New Zealandhospital. 

I would get more dental treatment if I was in Thailand.

Thanks for all your work on my case, I appreciate your personal and professional help. Ultimately was very satisfied with Stunning Makeover’s service and personal care. 

Caroline K from Melbourne, Australia

People that don’t know about the surgery are saying to me, you are looking fantastic the rest has really paid off. I can’t help but laugh.  People that know have asked for your details.

Recommendations are the best advertising.

Nisshia C from Queensland, Australia

I have had the most amazing experience, everything lived up to and exceeded my expectations. The staff, the hospital and the holiday was wonderful!

Thank you so much for helping me with all the arrangements! 

Chantelle O from

Everything was great, my recovery was surprisingly quick and barely painful at all. Sean loves his new teeth! 

Also you were a lot of help Paul and the last email with the address times of appointments and everything made stuff so much easier. Thank you so much for your help.

I have recommended you to my sister-in-law looking to have surgery next year. Maybe we will go together.

Alexandra H from Australia

The surgeon was very competent and confident, which made me feel confident too. He really knew what he was talking about and spent a good 30-40mins in the consultation explaining what was good for me and what wasn't. He was very professional and his English was great.

The nursing and support staff were always very helpful and answered the call bell very quickly when I was in hospital. They always got us transfers to and from the hospital and airport and were always on time. The service was excellent and had a single room in the large Phuket International hospital and a private bathroom. The operating room was modern and the consultation rooms state of the art.

It was comforting knowing there was always someone to call if I ran into problems in Thailand. I had Paul's mobile number and was impressed he contacted me while I was recovering to check on my progress.

I had an absolute ball in Thailand. Things couldn't have gone more to plan. The results of the surgery are amazing and they are healing so well.

Overall, very satisfied and I would (and have) recommended them to anyone who asks, including the closest of friends and family. 

 

Tracy C from New Zealand

The surgeon was fantastic and the hospital staff were amazing. Like clock-work, they knew exactly what was going on and guided us everywhere with ease. Hospital service was excellent. Same goes with the facilities; excellent, clean, organized and very well looked after.

I will recommend Stunning Makeovers to others. 

I would like to say thank you very much Paul for your service and helping us achieve a successful trip. Really appreciate it greatly.

Sonia B from Australia

The surgeon was so kind and professional, best surgeon ever and the nursing and support staff were so friendly and helpful. Even when I got a bit stressed out at times they were always there with a bright smile. The hospital facilities were clean, tidy and modern

So happy with my ….. and the overall experience, I’m off again in May with my sister this time. I recommend Stunning Makeovers to my family and friends and everyone. My only regret is I didn’t do it sooner. 

I am 100% satisfied with Stunning Makeovers service. It couldn’t have gone better. 

Nicki E from Whangarei, New Zealand

The surgeon was awesome. The nurses and support staff were excellent as they were not only helpful but quick to answer bell calls.Moreover, the service was perfect and very good pain management.

I definitely would return for more surgery/dental treatment.

I already have as I am very happy with the outcome of my surgery. I recommended Stunning Makeovers to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.

I was very satisfied with Stunning Makeovers as they were very organized and I had a great time in Thailand.

 

Sarah B from Tasmania, Australia

The surgeon was amazing!The staff and the hospital were so kind and caring. I felt very safe. 

I would definitely return there for more surgery, if I were ever planning on getting anything done. I definitely will recommend Stunning Makeovers to others. My experience in Bangkokhas not only changed my body but has made me open my eyes to so much! It's changed my life. 

Overall, I am extremely happy with the surgery.

Megan L from New Zealand

I chose Stunning Makeovers becasue I knew the care and quality of work would be far superior to going on my own. I also decided based on online testimonials on the stunning makeovers website and that it's based in New Zealand.

The experience in Bangkok, at Vejthani and the hotel were fantastic. Everything was organised so well. 

Dr Theera was fantastic, at the consult he explained everything in detail, answered my questions and didn't rush me. While I was in hospital I was checked on everyday and every 3 days after being discharged. I was given plenty of information on how to care for scars etc. the results are still early days but already are amazing. 

Fantastic hospital staff, the nurses were always checking on me, I never felt like I was being a bother, not only were they amazing in quality of care but also friendly and great to chat to about everyday stuff including tourist tips while in Bangkok which I appreciated. If I was in pain they were quick to administer pain relief. They really went above and beyond, I can say the same for the international co-ordinators. 

The hospital more than met my expectations. Far better rooms than I would ever see here in New Zealand. My favourite was the balcony off my  hosptial room, I couldn't leave my bed for 3 days so it was a godsend for me, my friend would open the doors so I could feel the warmth and watch lightning storms. The bottles of water always on hand were a great thing too. 

I would absolutely return for more surgery or dental treatment - 100% yes.  
 
I would definitely recommend Stunning Makeovers. I prefer the safety net of people who I can trust to provide me with trusted surgeons and hospitals, based on that I would recommend Stunning Makeovers.
Megan from Timaru, New Zealand
Dr Theera did a fantastic job. Recovery is going well, I am 100% happy with my breast augmentation.
 
I was a bit thrown when he recommended a mini tuck instead of full. I knew things could change at consult but expected maybe lipo or different way of doing breast augmentation. I hadn't read up on mini tucks and I had to make the choice at the consult. I decided to trust my surgeon. 
 
My abdomen looks a lot better than it did before. I wasn't expecting perfection but am hoping it'll flatten out after the swelling reduces. The level of care was amazing, if I ever needed something in the future I would go back to Vejthani. 
 
I chose Stunning Makeovers based on online reviews, testimonials on the Stunning Makeovers website and because it's based in New Zealand.

Nicky M from Christchurch, New Zealand

I am really happy with everything that was done, Dr Theera is very talented. He is also very respectful.

Recovery was fairly quick. The augmentation was painful particularly on the one side where I had a cyst removed but after a couple of days the recovery was good, when I was able to manage the pain myself. The nurses and the nurse manager were lovely.

I am now just waiting on swelling to go down which is normal however I am still very happy with the results to date. Even after less than 3 weeks following surgery I can already enjoy life without some of the worries I used to have.

As for Stunning Makeovers I am very impressed when everything you organised and did for me. Your support knowing you were there was very much appreciated. Also going to another country for surgery can create doubt as to validity but I never felt that with Stunning Makeovers.

The hotel was amazing. I would go back to Bangkok just for the hotel. It certainly exceeded my expectations and I think it is a great end to the journey being looked after and cared for like the hotel staff did and you organised.

Overall I am very impressed and thankful for changing my life.

When I started enquiring with makeover specialists, Stunning Makeovers showed the most commitment to helping me, reassurance to my decisions and strength through communication and support helped me get through and achieve what I have. I trusted Stunning Makeovers and staff, which is not easily given lol!

I am very satisfied with Stunning Makeovers. They exceeded my expectation. Follow up care affirmed this.

Dr Theera is very talented. I trusted his recommendations and I am extremely happy with his work and the results. He is also very respectful and considerate. The nursing staff were lovely, kind and patient. The support staff were also very kind and supportive. Lanee in international was lovely. I will not forget her. I was also given a complimentary face treatment by the nurse manager who I also really liked. I hope one day I get to see these people again.

The service was very good - especially the transport to and from hotel and hospital. I felt like it has also been taken very seriously and I definitely didn't feel like just another patient or number.

The hospital facilities were good - impressed with the coffee shops and pharmacy, everything you could want at a hospital even as a visitor.

I definitely recommend Stunning Makeovers for reasons stated.
