Nissan used to make skyline gtr, which is the best car to the racer, however, they discountinued production becoz profit is not high enough, they would earn more using the same labour and resources in making other models.

furthermore, goretex face very tight competition with silicone as silicone cost is less than 5% of that with Goretex, doctor who goes for pure profit would recommend silicone (thus claiming silicone is the "best", to justify their choice). eveything ends up with cost and profit.
Goretex I implant is no more prod, but i believe they still have ex stock and also, they doctor still can uses Goretex sheet to make the implant (just that more work for the surgeon)

Now got alloderm implant and softform for alternatives. both is organic friendly, soft and bendable and is easy removed. If u use I implant silicone, u cant pinch and bend ur nose but the two implants can, thus they will feel natural and less chance of extrusion.



OH NO! no more stock for goretex then how??? shit, must i fly to taiwan by year end to get my nose done??!! damn, wat shd i do?

dun wori, some doctors will keep ex stock one. thus most impt is after u decide which doc, than u ask if he uses goretex, than u must ask if he got keep stock for goretex?

also, some doc uses goretex in form of sheet rather than goretex I implant.

worst to worst, u may have to uses other material, i believe no much problem one.

Thanks for the reply. So I assume there is some slight redness on the area of incision and the scar is hidden inside the nostril??Is it a close technique procedure? Is it true that we have to restrict our smile for the 1st month in order not to open up the scar? Any swelling associated with alarplasty?

Hi Plas,

Yup there was slight redness where the stitches taken out but that has almost faded completely now. Dr. Jung gave me an antibiotic cream and I applied that religiously till it healed up. The scar isn't inside the nostril but at the lower outside corners. I did feel a bit of discomfort for the first few weeks when smiling but its not so bad. And there might be some swelling since you're cutting open your skin, but I didn't really notice any for myself.

I think Dr. Jung uses the sheet type so he can customize the height of the implant to your liking....

hannah,

i guess ur nose is done via open incision rather than close incision. I believe ur nose tip should be very nice as dr jung likes open incision technique as it allow him to work "wonders" on the patient nose, So, i assume u does ear bone grafting for your tip too with goretex sheet for your bridge.

have u seen the links i posted on how open incision is done? u are very brave woman... :shock:

Tanjhj,

Yup mine is open incision, with ear cartilage on my tip to lengthen it. And yes, I've seen how the surgery is performed. Its scary but hey, no pain no gain right? As long as the end result is nice....

Did anyone read the article on Dr. Kim frm BK clinic in today's Urban? Thanks to Katy for pointing it out to me earlier. Now I think there will be even more Singaporeans rushing to Korea to do their noses/eyes!

2 weeks after my I-shaped implant
dr sukit enhanced my tip abit, but i did not cut ear bone but he still managed to do it, anyone knows why?

for those who did the same surgery as me, i wanna ask.... how does your tip feel.. cuz right now, i felt like there's a 'weight' at the bottom and when i touched it gently, it doesnt feel like my own nose (tip) kinda have this feeling like hard and raw. i only did implant at the bridge so how come can feel the 'something' at the tip. and even im not touching it, i can feel something moving inside the tip, like some tiny ants crawling inside. lol i must be weird.

when will the tip become soft and feel like my own nose? so can i pinch my nose tip in the future? hmm.. sorry for so many questions and thanks :)

It is normal, DR SUkit may have used a I implant that has slightly longer tip and height to lengthen and enhanced ur nose. as the implant move up, the bridge, it may have pull the tip abt upward. But i believe the tip is only slightly changed. anyway good for u since it makes u look betta w/o the risk of the L. Furthermore, it is cheaper at Dr Sukit. Anyway, thats why i believe those ppl who "blamed" dr sukit for refusing to alar and L is really clueless of what those surgery does to them. :P not everyone need L implant or Alar.. if dun need than dun do loh, what for risk it for a minimal changes that is not noticeable.. :???:

pain wise i dun think there is much of it lah, lolz, later some reader thought open incision is really painful...hehe, the only pain is that the tip of ur nostril is red and cant dig nostril for the 1st mth.. hehe :D

btw, di u asked Dr sukit for a high profile and high bridge nose or u leave it to him? His style of nose is not like other Surgeon like Kim or Lee who mostly prefer high profile nose which make the nose high and prominent (quite obvious they may be fake). Dr Jung style is he prefer more natural looking and femine nose.

Anyway, those considering to go Hanfong @ Taiwan should get DR Hong
洪醫生, he should be the best doctor available there. Also he only does 3 surgery a day to maintain the standard.

Double eyelid - std cut is twd25000
Rhino - silicone implant is twd30000
Ear bone grafting will be another twd15000

so far his skill is pretty good. his patient usually heal with 3-4 days and swelling down aft 2-4 weeks.

I just found a thai PS clinic which charges Thb9000 for double eyelid via suture. that is like <sgd400. same price for alar. This clinic is catered to Thai unlike Yanhee which is catered to angmoh...
Rhino via silicone L implant is thb 12000, sgd500+

anybody keen. Great Thai PS sales.. :D

Yupz. If u can get a thai fren to bring you to PS clinic, chances are u just need to pay local rate, which is 1/2 of what they quote in USD. same for yanhee or other clinic..
