thanks :)


should have done it straight after the Rhino, however if need to go for alar, the recommended period is 3-12 mths after the rhino or when the nose swelling has subsided. this is to ensure the doctor does a really neat job. ALso Alar is irrevisible thus got to be careful..

I am so glad that I found someone who had the same good sentiments that I had for Han Fong. I chanced uopn the Hanfong website sometime back & I was totally amazed by the results of the double eyelid surgery.

I was considering either Dr Danny Oh or Han Fong but Han Fong seems to be a better choice

May I checked with you does Han Fong do the Korean incisional style double eyelid that u were talking about? I wld like to have a shorter recovery time & avoid scarring.

Some of the Han Fong pics showed gals with very natural result just after 3 weeks. Is that an underestimation as it seems unbelievable for cutting method to recover to such a natural state in just 3 weeks.

Jovin,

May I know if there is any visible scar for your double eyelids? I am afraid hat cutting method wld leave a permanent scar and looked unnatural....

Thanks alot !



hi rainbow :D want to go to taiwan together on june :D ??

After going thru numerous website on Rhinoplastry and implants, i more or less starts to get clearer and clearer pic of how rhinoplastry really is and the difference between various implants and how it works on various nose shape.

For asian, L shape implant dun really suit the asian face due to the lack of brow to joint the high nasal bridge. furthermore, asian nose mostly lacks flesh at the tip (protruding sense, not width) thus it is not suitable for a high bridge nose. I start to understand why Dr Sukit insistent of Using I shape implant which is easier to operate, longer lasting and also there is very little risk of breakage. imagine if the nose is hit by a force big enough directly, the L shape implant will break resulting in extra injury and op is needed to redo the implant. However for I shape, the chances of it breaking is much lower as there is no point of weakness. Furthermore, it can help in absorbing the impact, unlike the L shape implant.

Looks wise, I shape implant would look natural on asian as it just simply add some height to the nose living the tip untouch in its natural looking state. In fact most unnatural looking nose job that u saw are those that uses L shape implant. L shape implant makes the nose too straight and smooth plus it pushes the tip of the nose higher, resulting in most of the people with bigger looking nostril.. eeks

However the Best surgery method, as recommended by DR JUng - Asia No1 Nose Surgeon, is to have a I implant followed by using your own tissues for the construction of the tip. The result is the same as in L shape implant but with much lesser risk of breakage and longer lasting nose. (Highly recommended for those that want to have long long lasting nose job) It ensure that the doc create something that will work harmoniously with the patients face plus retain and incorporate that persons ethnicity into the final nose

Note: the abv research does not include L shape Goretex, as i have yet to find 1 feedback or report on L shape Goretex. even with L Shape Goretex or silicone implant, Tip construction using ur own tissues is still needed to protect and defined the nose tip.

http://www.entcenter.net/id217.htm

The Proportions of Classic Beauty - Da Vinci Facial Third Formulae for the perfect face.

If u take a look at the nose Ratio and degree, u would realise that the start of the nose bridge should be at the centre of the eye, now u realise why those aunties nose look fake. Their nose start from the Brow which is not the ideal ratio. SO the trick is not to ask for too high bridge.. lol

hi JOvin thanks lotz! :)
i have ruled out thermage due to pain factor and sadly i cannot get over my mental fear of process of woffles lift, or all threadlift methods, still prefer the traditional facelfit but endoscopic type although i knew tat threadlift r suppose to be less scary but nt for my instance :cry:


jovinliu wrote:If you are thinking of facelist, there's 2 options: Thermage or Woffles Lift. At least that's what i recommend. If your's is not a serious case, try Thermage. Woffles Lift is less "invasive" as compared to the traditional facelift, fewer stitches less downtime. And, of course, our notorious Woffles Wu invented this method hence he proudly name it WOFFLES LIFT. There are other surgeons who has been trained to perform Woffles Lift, but it might be better to do it with Woffles himself. About S$8k.

hihi babyevil and those interested in taiwan

Postby gartheven2000 » Fri, 10 Nov 2006 12:31 pm

Taiwan might be a good choice. Why not we do the research on taiwan first on the eyelid and rhino and work out which doctors to go, things to do and airtrip, hotel blah blah first. Then summarize it in a word file. it'll be more convincing for other potential PS pple to join in the taiwan trip. Going in groups is definitely far better and cheaper lor.

Btw babyevil care to meet up sometime? i am very interested in eyelid and rhinoplasty too. Maybe can set up a meeting wif everyone here interested in doing PS and those who want to go taiwan: to discuss abt more concrete plans and course of action.
