Hi Leenaaaa,

The video is very prominent. You go to BK's home page. www.bkclinic.com then on the left hand side, there is women of pre and post look, click that, a new window will pop up for the video. But make sure you don't have any firewall thingy when you access that. Like me, I can't see the video when I'm in office, only when I'm at home I can watch that and it helps if you have broadband.

When you are in the video content page, make sure you watch the one on the 2nd row, 1st box. It's of almost 25 mins and showcasing 5 "cinderella cases". Enjoy!

Rdgs,
Rabbit

can anyone tell me what to do? i've been very frustrated about this for the past few weeks.
:cry:


Hi Popcorn,

I'm new to this forum but hope I can share with you my brother's experience. Please try not to remove your mole by yourself. it's advisable that you seek a doctor's opinion first. Moreover, you stated that your mole protrudes. Some mole can be attached to blood vessels so may bleed and leave a scar. My brother had his facial moles removed aesthetically by laser three months ago by Prof Ivor Lim (plastic surgeon based in Camden Medical Centre). It took my mum ages :roll: to persuade him to do it. His moles were increasing in size gradually so it was quite worrying for my mum. Luckilly, the tests came back normal. They have also heal quite well 8) , hardly noticeable at all! So do consult a doctor if you want your mole remove and perhaps he can recommend a good plastic surgeon to do it. :lol:

Hi Leenaaaa,

I intend to do it sometime in Mar 06, and probably will go to BK. Mmm... not sure if braces should be done first... But I guest if someone contemplating of doing nose first or LASIK, then I think it should be LASIK cos after the surgery, you can put on glasses for a period of time (don't know how long though), so after LASIK is done and well settled, then go for nose better. This is just my own thinking.

Will keep everyone posted if I could go on time and what happen after the ops.

Rdgs,

Lipo In SG

Postby sarge8080 » Wed, 15 Feb 2006 6:09 pm

Can anyone recommend doing any lipo surgery in Singapore?
Any other alternatives as well such as laser? Mind you I'm male :).

Hi Leenaaaa,

Guess you probably may have perfect eye sight. LASIK is the surgery that help to correct vision problem like shortsight and astig.

Anyway, Mar is my ideal planning time but I doubt I can fulfil my plan as I haven't even applied leave...

Yup, will keep you posted if I have any action. :)

my mum and i just went for a consultation with dr harry fok yesterday, and i am going for double eyelid surgery two mondays from now. i told him i wanted to look as natural as possible, but now i'm afraid he'll make the creases too small!! :o dr harry fok is quite a nice person though, he showed me lots of before/after pics, most of them look pretty ok after the surgery although i felt that he made the creases rather small (but i have to say, they all look as if they were born with those creases). :?

he wasn't a hard-sell type of doctor. my mother suggested he do a rhinoplasty for me (which i don't need!!! what was she thinking??? :x ) he said he won't consent to it because i'm too young and that i might not be able to take the changes. i heard that other doctors try to advertise their services and encourage their patients to do some other surgery or some treatment, but dr fok didn't. :P

the nurses at Vida were very nice, they were very smiley and they kept reassuring us that dr fok would be done soon (he was doing some surgery). during the consultation he did have a nurse in the room but she wasn't timing us or anything, but taking down notes about what we said which she later passed to him. i forgot how much was my mum's consultation fee, but mine was S$90 which they waived because i was proceeding with the surgery. :D

anyway i'm looking forward to the surgery. i've been waiting for double eyelids since i was born and my parents fully support it (my mum has natural double eyelids, and well, it'll be nice to look like her). in fact my mum has been suggesting eyelid surgery for a long time, and now that i'm 19 i can go for it! whee! :lol: i just hope that i don't end up with asymmetrical eyelids. :-|

Like to hear opinions.


I did laser lipolysis which is a cross between lipo and mesotheraphy. What happens is that the doc uses a laser to break up the fat cells and then sucks them out. So basically the breaking up of fat cells is similar to meso and the suction of fat cells is similar to traditional lipo procedures.

I did it with Dr. Ivan Puah at aramis-b and its been about 2 months, results are pretty good. But its more suited for people who do not have a lot of fats. People who need to remove a lot of fats will do better with traditional lipo.

My downtime was minimal and really great. I just felt sore for about 3 days and I could move around normally. There was swelling and bruises for about 3 weeks and I still have some slight swelling. But great improvement, I already had about 5 people telling me I lost weight and these people did not know I had gone for the procedure!

He's offering a new procedure using ultrasound technology called vaser. This one uses ultrasound waves to break up the fat cells rather than laser. I've read good reviews about this on a US-based forum.

Here are some links that might help:

www.amaris-b.com

http://www.liposuction4you.com/liposuct ... niques.htm ( this explains the various techniques and do check out the forum and do a search for the vaser technique)

Hi leenaaaa,

I once contemplated to go to Dr. Amorn Pomee to do my rhino, but at the end I decided not.

FYI, he has stopped doing rhino using silicon, but would still consider if use your own cartilage like septum and ear. The fee he quoted me is 120,000 baht which amount to SGD5,000.

The strange part is, everytime I call up the nurse to make booking (cos I shift a no. of times), and tell them it's rhino consultation, they all said doc don't do rhino any more, even though I kept saying I confirmed ok with Doc via email already. This lead me think his experience in rhino may be less recent or frequent as compare to the Korean doc. Base on that, I decided to go Korea to do.

As for Breast Aug, when I do web search on this Doc, I saw a few very +ve review of his work on BA and he is a very famous doc in BKK, so should be ok.

This is FYI only, for your consideration pls.

Rdgs,
Rabbit

my eyelid surgery cost S$2500, cheaper than dr m huang or dr woffles wu, but still quite ex. anyway dr fok has the biggest private operating theatre (or so i'm told) so i guess i'm paying for that too.

yeah my mum is vain, when dr fok asked her how she wanted to look like, she said, "like my daughter, after her surgery."
