Plastic Surgeon in Singapore

Postby alonradzi » Sun, 22 Nov 2015 8:45 pm

Looking to know if anyone has any experience with Dr Kar Su Tan from Rhinoplasty Clinic in Elizabeth Hospital.
Got his name from my Dermatologist and I am looking for reviews and recommendations from others too.
Thanks!!!

No comments seen, and I have passed the operation, done by wonderful Dr. Tan.
Therefore I add my own recommendation, in response to my own question... :D :D :D

Hi there. I recently used Dr KS Tan. I've only been recovering a few weeks and nose it swollen and doesn't feel symmetrical. I think this is normal. I just wondered if you could shed more light on your procedure and why you were pleased?

My procedure was for removing a carcinoma from my right chick, below the eye.
now, 4 months mater swollen area is much better, getting to the right place - slowly but surely.
I was pleased with the attention given, prep (mental and actual), and follow up after. I meet him once a month for followup and always get full details to my (detailed) questions.
I don't know which Dr. Tan you were treated by - I went to the one at Noveena hospital - Rhinoplasty clinic.

I did Rhinoplasty with Dr Tan KS due to functional problem (to improve my breathing) and it was the worst decision of my life. The Aesthetic of my nose was just a by product.... but I didn't know it was not to be taken lightly. This really destroyed my life.
Dr Tan promised me subtle changes and made everything sounded so easy. He confidently told me he will make me a better nose.
To cut the whole story short, he made me sign consent to harvest my rib cartilage for the Rhinoplasty, saying he will try his very best not to use it. I shouldn't have signed... as I told him I really don't want to use my rib, but he said in case my nose collapse or something bad happens, it is the last resort. In the end, he harvested my rib, leaving me an unsightly scar... and a Huge Botched nose I have to deal with everyday of my life... it is no where near natural looking. I also need to mentioned he charged a large sum of money to my insurance company.
I really don't like to post something like this but I feel it is my duty to prevent anyone from suffering the same agony as me. So please don't ever do rib rhinoplasty, not just here at The Rhinoplasty Clinic but anywhere in Singapore. They are just not experienced enough. Good Luck and Take care!!!

Dear Regretfull,

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that it was such a traumatic experience for you. I never take rib rhinoplasty, or for that matter, any rhinoplasty lightly, and I always stress that to each and every of my patients. Rhinoplasty is known to be probably the most complex of all cosmetic procedures, and when we throw functional problems that needs addressing into the mix, it is almost never a simple surgery. This is the exact reason why I have decided to devote my practice entirely to rhinoplasty. If for any reason you have gone away taking the surgery lightly, then it is my fault for not impressing it upon you strongly enough. I will certainly reflect on how that came to be the case.

Typically subtle cosmetic changes do not need rib harvest, hence am I right to say your rib harvest was for a complex functional problem? You did not mention it in your post, but I hope your functional issues have been resolved.

I definitely want to know your concerns are. As this is not the ideal medium to address such personal issues, kindly contact either my clinic for an early appointment and I will do my utmost to correct what you are dissatisfied with. Most problems are usually fixable. I do not recall any unhappy patients in my recent memory, so please forgive me for not being able to guess who you might be. Please raise it during our next follow up so we can start to address your concerns.

I am constantly reflecting and reviewing my own work and I sincerely thank you for the feedback. I certainly do not profess to produce perfect results all the time and revision is sometimes a necessity especially for complex cases. Please pardon us if we had come up short during your care and let's work towards resolving your issues by discussing it during our next follow up appointment. I will do my best to give you a satisfactory outcome.

P/S: As I do not check in here regularly, please email me at info@therhinoplastyclinic.com.sg or call my clinic at +65-6250 0550.

Yours Sincerely,
Dr Tan KS
