Suellen, like many of our friends, has always wanted bigger boobs ever since she was younger, but even though she works in a clinic, she just couldn’t get comfortable with the surgeons in Australia.
“I remember I went and got a quote off a surgeon and the whole surgery was $12,000 AUD and it was all itemized and his payment for the whole hour of surgery was $7,000. When I went in the room for the consultation, he didn’t make eye contact with me, he just pointed to the little gown I had on and said ‘you can take it off’ and he told me what he could do and then he walked out of the room and didn’t even say goodbye to me,” Suellen explains about the surgeon she consulted with in Australia.
“That really just made me want to do it. I thought, if I go to this guy and it’s cheap, I’ll do it in Australia. If not, I’ll go to Thailand. And when he was just so arrogant and rude, I thought, ‘No, I’m going to Thailand.’ In Thailand, they were just so happy that we were there, it wasn’t like I was a pain – they were happy to see me.”
The Australian surgeon’s fee of $7,000 alone was more than Suellen’s entire trip to Thailand, including travel, surgery, hotels and everything she spent – that’s insane! Of course what really matters is what her experience was like in Thailand and how she feels about her new boobs.
Suellen worked with our staff in arranging her surgery and had nothing but good things to say about the whole process:
“She’d answer my emails the day I sent them or the next day in the morning. She was always flexible and she’d always give me answers straight away. Sometimes I’d read her email and I’d think I’d need more information, so I’d call her and she’d be there. I wouldn’t have to wait and she wouldn’t have to call me back, I could just talk to her and she could answer my questions then and there.”
We always try their best to give you the information you need and to make sure everything’s taken care of. That’s what we’re here for and it doesn’t stop after you finish your surgery, we’re here to help once you return home as well. And, of course, we charge you nothing for this service
“I had Dr. Bhumsak and his English was amazing. When I walked into the room to do the consult, he didn’t just tell me what he was going to do, he asked me what I wanted, which I thought was really nice. Even the surgeons here in Australia hadn’t asked me what I actually wanted. Even though he was friendly and joking, he was serious when he had to be. When it came to talking about the massage, even the risks and the things I’d have to do after surgery he was very serious, but in general he was very polite and courteous, and he jokes too so it was very nice.”
This is something we hear over and over about the experience many of our friends have had with our partner surgeons. The warmth and attention to your needs, combined with a top academic background and decades of international experience, makes for a great bedside manner while ensuring a safe procedure and the best possible result from your procedure. You’re a human being, after all, and not a cash machine and you’ll be treated like you deserve when you work with us and our partner hospitals.
“Dr. Bhumsak was great,” Suellen says when asked about her surgeon. “Something that really meant a lot to me was the icepack thing, you know you can fill it up with cold water when it starts to get warm? One of the nurses was filling it up and she looked at it and she said, ‘Oh, it’s got his name on it, he’s brought this in from home for you.’ And that really meant a lot , he’d brought his little ice cooler in from home for me. That was nice and kind and generous, I thought that would never happen – he was really caring.”
And what about her results? Well, Suellen tells it best:
“I never actually thought I’d get them done and they’d be that good. They’re like perfect! the photos that I’d always looked at and I thought, ‘That’s what I want my boobs to look like.’ I look at photos like that and think, ‘That’s what they do look like now!’ They’re identical to what I dreamed of.”

Dreams really can come true and Suellen’s experience is a testament to that. Of course it helped her experience to have come on a group tour as well, something you can do too – click here for details.
“We were all crying on the day when we left,” Suellen tells us about her Group Tour. “If I could’ve brought my family to Thailand and stayed with them and those girls I would’ve stayed there forever – it was the most fun I’ve had with a group of twelve girls in my entire life. The shopping and the dinners and being out of the country, the night markets and all the funny, strange Thailand experiences that happened, it was so fun.”
It’s been great working with Suellen and some of you will get to meet her at our Information Meetings in Australia. The rest of you can get to know her on our Facebook page where she’ll be happy to chat with you
To sum it all up, we’ll just quote Suellen when she told us, “I think it was the best decision I ever made!” We’re so happy for you Suellen and we’re here to help the rest of you make one of the best decisions you’ll ever make too!
