Vaucluse,

What a handsome pic, one that's befitting of you :D .



Leeeeeeenaaaaa (hope I get the spelling right :mrgreen:),

I hope you reconsider the multiple surgeries. Sounds a bit of an extreme makeover trying to accomplish so much. I really do not advocate breast enlargement unless someone is smaller than a cup A. I have many friends in that sizes and lead very fullfilling lives. So many wonderful lingeries to help enhance that area. There is so much risk involved when you insert a foreign object into your system.

I was watching a shockumentary by TLC titled "100 things removed from human body". A women was in her fishing boat when a swordfish jumped out of the water and pierced the women's chest with its sword. It turned out she had an implant and it burst. She had to be admitted to the hospital to have it remove. I know it is far fetched and funny.

As the above pic illustrated, it is all about proportion too. Don't know if you are the slender type. Teeny boobs for teeny body, large boobs for large body. Seen some very slender ladies walking around with big boobies and it just does not seem right. Looks like they gonna topple over any minute. I may be bias here as I am not a men and some of my all time favorite women include Audrey Hepburn and Maggie Cheung.

Hello all,

Thx for your support!

After me, there's another forum reader (a lady) went to BK for surgery and our conclusion is... may be we expect too much from Dr. Kim, he seems is not as great as we expected.

1) Skill
She did eyelid and nose there and she said that the asymetric problem in the eyelid was still not resolved and nose, not very significant improvement in alar.

She met another patient there and that patient also said that her alar shows minimal result. But we do need 2 to 3 mths to see the final result.

For bridge, HateMyNose was worrying his bridge is crooked too...but later seems fine. Another lady she met in the clinic to remove plaster, she can tell her bridge is not very straight too.

I feel my nose got improvement, but the front view is not quite nice, the normal nose contour is not there at all...

2) Aftercare
In short, don't hv at all. Like me, I was very worry about the swelling, wrote 3 emails (1) gortex or silicon, (2) swelling and pain (3) took pix of my nose inside the nostril to ask what could be the things happening for the swelling. He only replied (2) and ask me to take any antibiotics, end of story. So in short, PS is really partly depends on luck, if there's really some problem happen, I'm not sure if he will do revision for me free...

While another forum reader, he went to Dr. Jung and he told me the nurse did the stitches removal and Dr. Jung did a check after that. He taught him exercise to shape the nose and gave him a splint to wear at night to make sure the bridge is straight. All these are not available from BK... However, the key part is, that guy is not very satisfy with the result (at least currently), he find it not very natural, the bridge is too high.

This is just to share experience in case there are rhino wannabe based on our previous posts and take the plunge. It's not bad mouth or advertisement... again read it with your own research and assessment pls.

I can always count on you to pick up on that ! Is there really such a thread? Never come across it.

If you haven't notice, seems like we are the only trolls here. The other members are so focused and ontrack that they are oblivious of us :evil: .

Nobody bothers to say hi to us.

Hi Earthfriendly (a belated hi),

Yes, indeed you are right, inserting foreign object into the body is really risky and another thing (like some swelling) you will scare to death...

Ha, don't know why at that point when I decided to go for surgery, I didn't think that is something scary. Hearing other's sucessful story, seems covered the part that there's fail cases as well too!

Rdgs,
Rabbit

Having my eyes done too, i will like to add some comments about the asymetric problem after eyelid surgery.

First of all, the swell is not the same. For example, your right eye may be more swollen than the left. During the recovery time, 1 side of the eyelid will look "thicker" while the other may look quite normal. This happened to me too. I repeated this many many times, and I still see the need to repeat this again. That is, you need months to see the final result of your surgery.

So, to the lady who did her eyes and nose with Dr Kim, I don't know when she did her surgeries, but please don't conclude so fast even before you can see the final result.

For your age, i seriously don't suggest you consider any plastic surgeries nor liposuction. I believe the metabolism rate at your age is still high, aim for low fat diet and exercise more, and see how it goes.

liposuction is not a final solution to slimming and contouring. Do your part first, if really nature is not helping you, then you can consider other options.
