Siloam Hospital

I am an Australian girl who has just arrived home 1 week post-op from having Breast Augmentation at Siloam Hospital in Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia. My first point of contact was an Australian woman named Robyn, who was extremely professional, informative, friendly and supportive. I had previously booked my surgery through BIMC which is more well known by foreigners, however was stuffed around with my appointments and information within 2 weeks of the operation. After contacting Robyn, she scheduled me straight in and gave me everything I needed to go ahead. My surgeon was Dr Roy, originally from BIMC but have moved over to Siloam. An indonesian surgeon with the hands of a genius and so humble, puts you to ease! I was blown away with the standards of care, the whole team went over and above to give you anything you needed. My results even a week after are already amazing, I would 100% recommend everyone to contact them first for any cosmetic procedure, you will not be disappointed!

Hi Mercedes and thank you for sharing your experience.

First hand involvement and feedback is a most valuable contribution to a subject such as this.

Of course women, and some men, have these procedures for a very wide range of reasons and have quite varied motivations.

Some seek remedy from Mastectomy outcomes, others feel they have issues arising from excessive breast size that cause them discomfort, some others suffer anxieties of self image, or perhaps are not a symmetrical as they would like to be.

You have not provided the reasons for your own surgery, and it is not necessary for you to do so.

The important issue at hand is that you had a procedure, it appears to have been a success and that report you are recovering well in a post-operative context.

I urge you to keep a very close eye on things in the next few days, weeks and months, and do not hesitate to seek prompt intervention or opinion from a suitably qualified medico if you suffer any concerns at all in regard to your post-operative condition.

Do not delay intervention if things change significantly, or if it does not 'feel' right.

Any swelling, redness, puffiness, discharge or discomfort that develops must be investigated immediately and without doubt you have been fully briefed on that by the medical staff in Bali.

It would also be most informing, and of interest to many observers of these Forums to hear from you again in the future and to know how things are going.

So I do urge you to come back here again and update us on your progress as things progress.

Personally I would urge any potential participants in Breast Augmentation to make a decision very slowly and with considerable inquiry and due diligence. That enquiry includes direct testimonial from those such as Mercedes who have sought these procedures.

It is also of course important to seek testimonial from people who have had such a procedure several years post-operatively to see if they are still happy they went ahead and have not encountered adverse outcomes that may have taken some time to emerge.

Some people do have these procedures done for quite emotionally driven reasons and sometimes they discover it does not change their life in the manner they anticipated.

Always bear in mind that others may see you in a much better light than you imagine.

Issues of self image may distress many people who are actually very attractive yet simply cannot see that in the mirror for themselves.

In regard to overbearing issues of self-image I have seen women have these procedures after a devastating mastectomy outcome and it has been a life changer for them.

So, for whatever reasons you had this procedure Mercedes I wish you a quick recovery from the operation and all the best for the future.

Looking forward to seeing you posting here in the future and letting us know how things are going.

Hi Briannaadair!

This post from Mercedes is quite a few months old, and the original poster only made that one post. Perhaps try sending her a pm (personal message) and hopefully she will respond to you. To do this, click on her name and when her page appears, scroll down on left hand side and find "send message".

Alternatively, you could try the website for Siloam Hospital here is the link www.siloamhospitals.com/content/shdp-overview

I do hope you are able to have your query answered!
