It has been 17 days since I had my eyes operated on, and 14 days since I had my nose and chin operated on.

Well I don't really have a choice but to wait it out. I was worried about my nose swelling too if I cried, but was so upset to hold back the tears everyday :-|

I know that my face will look better in time to come. I don't look hideously ugly or anything, but I don't think I look that much better than I started out with (I wasn't ugly or anything), am just really upset with Dr K's attitude, that he didn't give me what I asked for, and all the money I spent.

That said, I think it is likely that I will have my eyes and nose corrected. My mom has a very high parallel crease and my dad has the eyes I used to have. So with my eyes now, I don't look like I came from either one of them and don't look like my siblings. I will need to have a fat graft done anyways. As for the nose, I agree with Dr H that the implant is too long, or even if it's not too long it is too thick. I also agree that the nose is too long and round at the end. Will have to have that fixed.

I wish I could vent to friends and family, but I didn't tell anyone but my hubby because I would probably have been nagged at. Now the situation is even worse. They'ld probably say I asked for it and tell me off for spending all that money. * Sigh* Also since I stay with my hubby's family, it has been hard avoiding everyone. Someone even asked me if I did something to my face bc i look weird! You can imagine the tears that came after that!

Well I guess the only thing I can do in the meantime is to wait for Dr K's reply and to do further research.



hey lenaaaaaa,
totally agreed with dolphin, it still too early to tell as u mentioned only 17days.. look at Rabbit case, she was pretty worried initially, under depression as well.. but after a mth the swell subsided .. and look at her, she is a happy hopping Rabbit again! hehe..

ok share with u one screct (no longer a screct after posted here..hahaha) i was so call venting my anger to Jovin that time when i went for eye surgery (stitches method) it looked horri after 2nd days!! brusies all over my face and eye area, the stitches uneven, and even got pus!! gosh.. nearly fainted! i wouldnt say i under depression, cos me n jovin have this mentality.. We choose to go under the knife, so we are well preapare if surgery goes hay wire!! *touch wood* we are responsible on our action, no one to blames..

So after 1 mth, the stitches suppose to melt or gone, but it still quite obvious, and it really quite un even, eyes swelling too!! i called the doc, i email him, i done research just to make sure wat i gone thru are normal.. but after 1 n half mth it only slightly improve abit, and the stitches still obvious! that was the time i start to get panic! wanna to go to GP and take out the stitches and re do again.. Lucky i got my good PS buddy Jovin(hehe.. PS buddy.. wat a term) stopped me and asked me to give it another mth and see how it goes.. and wala! the stitches really melted and the wound healed nicely and now my eyelids more deep set and natural now.. i like it so much.. same goes to my nose!
So don be too anxious to see the end result ok.. just give it sometime to subside and be patience to see a brand new u..

Double eyelid procedure and healing

Postby Lass » Wed, 14 Jun 2006 10:13 pm

Hi I chanced upon this very informative website on everything you need to know about double eyelid procedure, including the methods, the after-care, what to expect etc. Very useful indeed for those who are really interested in going for this surgery.

On scaring and healing:

http://www.drmeronk.com/asian/asian-eye ... eries.html
http://www.drmeronk.com/asian/asian-eyelid-healing.html

On incisional technique:
http://www.drmeronk.com/asian/asian-eye ... nique.html

On non-incisional "suture" technique:
http://www.drmeronk.com/asian/asian-eye ... ique2.html

On after-care:
http://www.drmeronk.com/asian/asian-eye ... after.html

For myself, i plan to go for the incisional technique. Initially i did consider going for the safer, non-incisional method first. But i don't think it comes any cheaper either. And because i know the crease may come down after a few months or a few years (depending on individuals), I foresee 'heartache' when i see my crease go back to my normal hidden state and gotta pay for another surgery all over again!

Hence, I'm taking the plunge to do it once and for all, rather than hesitating and wondering how I'd be if I had only done it earlier. I've already booked my appointment for next month. Feeling a bit scared of looking like a freak for the first 1-2 months after surgery. But I take it as something I'll want to do while i'm young so that my skin condition allows it to heal faster as compared to an older age.

At most if ppl asks, i'll just be honest. I think there's nothing wrong with going through PS. I've decided not to care about what ppl will say (vain etc) after knowing I underwent PS. I believe the one who will enjoy the benefits of it at the end of the day will be myself.

I know the healing part is scary. But I will just grit my teeth and hang in there! Will camouflage with concealer and makeup when possible. Planning to get a big black sunglass after i get my pay so that i can hide behind my sunglasses after my surgery!

Wish me luck :)

Double eyelid

Postby Lass » Thu, 15 Jun 2006 9:05 am

I'm planning to undergo the procedure with Dr F from ttsh. He seems a very nice man and won't push me to do things. He'll answer what i ask very straightforwardly. I haven't consulted other surgeons yet (consultation cost is not cheap by the way), but i feel very comfortable talking to him. So i plan to choose him as my doctor.

This sat i'll also be consulting Dr KK Lim from Jalan Sultan clinic that one of the readers recommended. Not doing any surgery this sat. Since they don't charge consultation fees, i don't mind going there and checking the prices out reg his surgeries (his methods etc) and also their botox prices.

Another query: I read somewhere that one reader adviced going for rhinoplasty first before going for double eyelid surgery, because after the nose implant, it'll pull the eyelid shape a little. is it true? oh no... what if i plan to do my nose say, a few years later? think i'd better clarify with my doctor on the day that i do it.

Actually I'm also wondering if it's a good move to do my eye surgery in Singapore rather than in Bangkok.

Read that one of the male readers did his double eyelid with Dr Sukhit and looked very natural. The price was very reasonable too.

Sigh. Any one else did double eyelid surgery in Bangkok too and looked good? Care to share your experience?
