Hi Pink,

Do you still intend to go to Korea to do your surgery? Did you do some research on that (which doctor is good and how much)? Do you intend to go alone? Where are you going to stay? Why not consider Dr. Huang? Im a bit of confuse right now, coz after hearing all the stories of the outcome... kind of sad and confuse.... but it is exciting to go with someone else rather than going alone ... You got email address?

Hello everyone,

I read this thread a couple of months ago and thought that it was v.old and dead so was pleasently surprised to see it still going. Iam 17 years old and am desperately wanting rhinoplasty and double lid surgery in the next couple of years. The sooner the better in my opinion.But my main priority is the eye surgery, the skin has become so heavy due to makeup application and I really want this for medical and cosmetic reasons.

Can i just ask, where do you all live. I know i'll have to travel abroad for surgery as there is no where in the Uk that will do asian surgery. I'd love to go to Korea but am worried about the language barrier and I dont want to travel to a country by myself. Because of that am quite interested in this one www.asianeyelid.com its in the US, somewhere i wouldnt mind going.Theres no pictures on his website because he explained how it cannot show the problem results by pictures or something like that. Hes taught asian eye surgery to other doctors too. Dr chen specialises in the eye which makes me want to go to him, as other surgeons that do alot of other procedures, asian rhinoplasty will only cover about 1/10 of thier experience. Whereas dr chen does nothing but blepharoplasty. But am also wanting to do rhinoplasty and the best place to go would probably have to be Korea, i think id prefer to do that with a doctor hich mainly does rhinoplasty as it means the job willl be well concentrated on the nose. Like the site everyone else has already mentioned looks really good http://www.nose.co.kr/english/ .

Am desperately anting this done in the future, I dont ant my family to find out as they would object to it. What is everyone elses situation?

There are so many things in this world to worry about besides your 'too natural nosejob'.

To put it bluntly, even if you get your dream plastic face or body, nothing will change the sense of insecurity, discontent and self loathing some of you have inside.

Please note I am only directing this to those who seem addicted to surgery.


hi guest ..., are you the one who saw Dr Loh in Penang before? Can tell me how to contact him?


It was many years agom back in 98 I think. Look his clinic up on the internet he might be listed. Loh Laser Clinic.

If you see him again let me know if he's as cute as he was so many years back


Hello guest ..., thanks for reply. I have tried to search his clinic using search engine, but failed to locate him. Do you know his clinic contact details?


Hi Guest ..., will greatly appreciate if you can give me more details of Dr Loh laser clinic?

plastic surgery at BKK

don tink overseas are always better. its probably only the prices are cheaper tats all. i had mine done by thai surgent who even had a building of his own and claimed to invent a famous BIO Plastic implant during last year doctor's conferencing in thailand wif respect to new inventions.

sad to say my face was ruined by this man- who reconstruct but failed utterly. even after 2 years, i am trying to correct the mistakes but not even one was reversible. remember to choose those that are reversible and not permanent. the doc is a good surgent but a poor designer....

I cant help you with a surgeon but normally you have to pay for a consultation. People tend to consult with different doctors even though it costs money its worth it as you go with the doctor your most comfortable with.Best place to go for blepharoplasty is probably obviouslyKorea depending on which doctor you go to. The results are dramatic but natural whereas iv noticed quite alot of eye jobs done in other places are really subtle and does not sort out the excess skin/fat(although that maybe because the non-incision method was used).

Thanks

hi, am not strongly against the idea of having the blep done in Thai as my opinion will be bias as am not sure what the doctors are like there.But i believe that chinese people have more similar faces with koreans than thai people so the doctors in Korea would be more suited for asians such as chinese, japanese and koreans. Also the demand for blep in Korea is as common as having braces done so there will be quite a few doctos well experienced in this field.Whereas i havent heard of the surgery being as common in thailand.

Interested in your impressions

Greetings,

My name is Dan Childs, and I am editor of Cosmetic Surgery & Beauty Magazine. We're based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and to our knowledge we are one of the only (if not THE only) English-language consumer magazine on cosmetic surgery in Asia. The mag is currently distributed in Malaysia and Singapore.

First, my appreciation to the web director for allowing me to post this message :-).

The reason I am writing is that I am currently working on an article concerning the cosmetic and plastic surgery scene in Singapore. One of the issues that I was interested in covering was the relatively large number of expats who choose to have their procedures performed in Singapore rather than head back to their home countries. With this in mind, I felt that the posters on this board would be the perfect people to talk to regarding this topic.

As I'm aware that anonymity is the chief concern in a forum of this nature, I promise to abide by the following guidelines:

1) I will only consider specific replies to this post for printing in our magazine (unless, of course, the replier specifically indicates that they do not want to be quoted);
2) I will not publish any of the statements made outside of this thread (unless I am referred to that post by the author);
3) Any respondents to my questions will remain anonymous (that is, I will fabricate a cool-sounding pseudonym) -- unless, of course, you tell me that you would like me to use your true identity.

If you feel like emailing me directly rather than posting your response on the board, by all means feel free. My email is dan@writers.com.my.

As for the questions that I have for my article:

-- As an expat who is perhaps considering cosmetic surgery in Singapore, how do you feel the level of service in Singapore stacks up to that offered in your home country?
-- What about cost? Do you find it is about the same in Singapore, or would you be paying less (or more)?
-- Do you find online forums such as this one helpful in your decision? If so, why?
-- How do you feel about the cosmetic surgery options available in Singapore?

I think that's enough to start with. Please feel free to answer any and/or all of these questions. Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated. Thanks for your consideration!

Best regards,
Dan

Can anyone advise me if you have gone for chin surgery. I just had my chin surgery done 3 days ago, and it's now much more swollen than the first day. I've taken the pill the doctor had given to me, but it seems like no effect. I also drink some tonic, like yu sheng, but my chin below still swollen and pain. Please advise me if you have gone for chin surgery.

Thanks.

Attitude problem? Can you care to elaborate further? As in is he unfriendly or rude..if so, I would not be keen to go to him. How about anyone knows other good docs at SGH?


I have been to Dr Tan. Think his 'attitude problem' refers to his reluctance to do alot of procedures on patients. He gives me the impression that undergoing excessive surgery is not gd. So, he gave me a feeling tt he is not interestd to do my procedure and he is a man of few words. Very few words. But he is nice in the way that he doesnt not propagate excessive surgery, unlike some surgeons.

Think other gd docs in SGH would b Dr Colin Song. I think he is great. The main difference betw the docs at SGH n those in private practice are that the consultation is shorter and the docs generally DONT encourage/promote/hardsell procedures.

This is my 2cents worth, after consulting around 5 doctors.
