Heya Today's PS was a breeze. :D My procedures were over in less than 2 hours (I did an otoplasty (pinning back ears) and alarplasty), rested for like 10min, then took a cab back with my hubby. Am already back working from home since lunch! Jass - My 1st surgery was alright, but I guess what I reall...

Hi MBK, Well, didn't physically measure my before/after bridge, but I think it would be closer to 3mm, judging from the slope and side view, which is quite conservative already, given that most would aim for 5mm or so.... I guess some PSs do think they know best what is for you, so do make sure u sh...

Hey MBK I guess the local PSs are somewhat conservative (like their counterparts in BKK), as compared to the Japanese/Korean PSs, so the changes are really quite subtle. :? For my previous closed rhino, I had my stitches removed on Day 3, and went shopping (Dr Fok was at Paragon then) right after th...

Hey Jass, mbk, I guess the decision is made once u are at the reception counter and u arrange for a surgery date - you have to pay 50% of the surgery up front (non refundable), so there is really no turning back after that! :-| Btw, 2 weeks is more than enough time to recover. I am expecting to have...

Hey MBK, I just dug out my old receipts, and i actually paid just $3000 for the closed rhino (implant inserted thru a nostril) the last time. I did enquire about the total cost of a closed rhino + alar then, and remembered that he quoted me $4500. Went for a couple of consultations as well before de...

Hi there MBK, I went to Dr Fok (When his clinic was still in Paragon Medical) in May last year for a rhinoplasty. Am glad with the outcome and service, and am going back next week for an alarplasty and otoplasty. He now operates his own clinic in Mt E. Cost-wise, I think it is reasonable, albeit the...

Hi, Has anyone done their alarplasty recently? Appreciate if you can share with me the results, recovery time etc...thanks! :) I went for a rhino (L-shaped implant) with Dr Harry Fok (previously at Paragon Medical, now moved to Mt E) last year. Did not see much difference, and am going back to him t...

Don't know if you guys came across this, but Xia Xue (the blogger with her one TV show now) went to Dr Martin H to get her nose done - for free - lucky gal. She mentioned something about being under for 7 hours, so her's must be mega surgery (I suspect open method, plus alarplasty). Would have easil...

Voix - I did my rhinoplasty in Spore a couple of months back, and if i remember the pricing breakdown correctly, the sineech tablets cost me about $50 - full course I would assume to mean about 1 weeks supply? (There are specific labels on the tablets for Day 1, Day 2, etc..and for morning/afternoon...

Ah Mei Lover, Maybe u can consider Dr Harry Fok for the alar. As u know, i did my rhino with him...Saw some pix of patients who did alar as well - didn't see too much bruising/swelling in the post-ops pix (3-5 days later). Baby evil - $900 for alar? Pretty good deal, but I guess cheaper is not alway...

AhMei Lover, I would love to get the alar done (really regret not doing it together with the rhino), but don't know when that will be :( My hubby is totally against any surgery, so i have to do it only when he is away (for at least 2 weeks) - and dont see that happening for a looonnngggg time. In an...

Ah Mei lover, Hi there! Apologies for being MIA, just back from a long business trip...my nose has healed well, none of the blockage, breathing problems, numbness etc that some others mentioned. Then again, my change was very subtle, just about 1-2mm increase, and i think my tip is still too bobulou...

hey Ahmei lover, My implant is not giving me any problems, thankfully. Just that mine looks so similar to pre-surgery, it was kinda wasted. Regret not insisting on a higher bridge and maybe i should have gotten an alarplasty during my rhinoplasty as well! :? Btw, what do u meant by water retention o...

Hi Jovin, Apologies, yah, meant to say that the scar tissues will hold the silicon in place. Anyway, pros and cons with both silicon & gortex. I suppose silicon comes in different shapes n forms also - like mine is not white, but flesh colored (Dr Fok showed me a whole range of skin colored silicon ...
