Dr Kao is our doctor. My sis & I went together. So far so good, my sister has received compliments but no one suspects anything & it's only been 2 months exactly. Ours are also revision cases too. Best to get someone to accompany you if you want to use autologous rib. Previously, i also had ...

Hi regretful28, Don't be upset, i'm sure it can be revised, just let the whole thing settle down first, in my case, it's been 2 months, i used rib plus ear cartilage at the tip, so rib appears to be not so swollen compared to ear cartlage. When i look in the mirror it seems ok, but when i take pics,...

Hi pinkyice! ** wave wave** just to share, i went to Dr Jong when i was in taipei last nov. He asked me whether i like to go salon every 2 weeks to perm my lashes, I said "No", then he said better don't do it in that case. Initially I was very keen too but pinkyice also told me the same th...

Hi TreeHugger,

Try to drink more pineapple fruit juice from their fruit juice stalls, it helps in deswelling.

Their light therapy (NT200) at the cosmetic Centre in Tri- service hospital is good too, bonus, i think it helps to calm down my acne!

Hi angelfern, thanks for your reply. :) Anyway, how long did it take for your nose to look 'normal' ? Cause after the op whole face and nose will swell right? One more query, does your eye still look the same after the nose job? Because the skin between your eyes will get pulled a little by the rib...

LOL, of course it's around NT 120 000 for each person, we didn't do alarplasty or tipoplasty (is this the right spelling?). Bear in mind, this rate includes the hospitalisation stay in the special ward with attached toilet. I think for those of you who goes alone, he'll give you a complimentary room...

yes, we've informed Dr Kao.

It dosen't interfere with his medicine, I think it's just a holistic supplement to aid in healing for post surgery.

We use the rib for the bridge & ear cartilage for the tip. We paid the hotel in Ximenting beforehand, Dr Kao's fees, the special hospital room with attached toilet for both of us & consultation for the first day, all in, around NT120 000. i think he gave us a discount coz both of us do at th...

Results so far so good, still too early to tell, centre of nose bridge to nose tip still swollen but as we're very kiasu, we ordered Pre op & Post op medicine & sinnech from makemeheal.com plus we lugged 6 bottles of bird nest so i think we recovered amazingly fast. We've no blue black bruis...

Hi all, I read that some doctors use the rib for the entire nose including the tip, do you think it's better as we can avoid the additional pain & scar to the ear? will using rib on the tip be too hard & stiff? using ear cartilage for the tip should be softer but read that the absorption rat...
