oh that magazine.. i read it from Msia Times bookstore before. I believe it is a Msia publication however it is a good read for those who wanna go for PS. However, i believe the Internet is more than enough if not better than the magazine.

Me, Botox on cheek only so far. Have been sceduled to go for Double eylid and Rhino at NUH but change my mind after doing research. My finding is that SG PS is too ex with limited skills and exp, imagine u are paying them to learn... also techniques and materials used are outdated and unsuitable for asian. worst is that they hardly improve and upgrade themselves

oh yes, i am an engineer maybe thats why i can understand how it is done, next is i does lots of research plus i dare to see those "bloody" operation pics for better understanding..

I suggest u call or email both DR Jung and Kim on their Phone via their website and give them ur pics of front and side(close up) for their review and tell them what u want (give pic of the actress nose and eyes u like) and ask for quotation. Than u decide your doctor to go to. HK actress michelle reis and Qi Qi is an example of good nose job well done, prominent yet oriental.

Actually both DR will do all at once for u but depending on ur nose. some cases may need 2nd time.. thus i suggest u give them a call. and ask for discount..

as for your eyes, there is still some opeartion to make it better, bigger and nicer. ask the doc for recommendation.

anyway, i does suggest u go for a total makeover at one go rather than spread it over a few times. reason is that the doc can have a better pic on how to operate on you and also, the cost is lesser if do all at once. usually is btw 10-20% cheaper as per surgery.

a nose job will only make ur nose taller and pointer, not much of a difference to reduce the flare-up nose? am i rite? i have flare up nostril, but do not have particularly big/ small nostril.

pls give some comments. :cry:


Then alar isn't gonna help much. You need to get your nose lengthened instead. Dr. Jung calls having a piggy flared nose a "short nose". Unfortunately just adding an implant isn't gonna fix the problem. I had a lot of nostril show before, but I had mine lengthened with ear cartilage and its fine now.


but that Dr jung is in korea rite?..i dun intend to go for tt, too costly. do u hv drs in taiwan to recommend that can do such lengthening surgery? man, i thot my nose job will be a simple surgery..like jus nose augmentation :???:


sori to spoilt ur hope but flare nose, piggy nose, fleshy nose and short nose will need OPEN incision, implant and bone grafting from your body to fix. This surgery, i wont count on local docs to do that and even local doc can do, it will gonna cost a bomb. Only choice is Hanfong, WishClinic or Dr Jung/DR Kim. for taiwan, prepare to set aside 3k for the surgery only. for korea, it gonna cost u usd5k. Thailand maybe Dr Somsak but i dun think it is going to be oriental looking like those korean actress but more caucasian like Dawn's.

Maybe u like to send ur pics to wishclinic, hanfong, and dr somsak for quotation. do send a pic of the ideal nose u want.

thanks for the reply tanjih... i haf seen quite a few local docs le but they say they can't do anything to improve my eyes and the reason they gv is i gt double eyelids so i can't go for any double eyelid op. n i ask if they gt any surgery to make my eyes bigger but the doc say its impossible. so i kind of doubt their skills

most sg docs suggest me tat i can enhance my nose to make it higher n sharper.. wad i haf nw is a normal nose... but my sides abit fleshy n nose looks abit short. i'm quite sure sg docs can't do such complicated op tat i wan so i made up my mind to choose either a gd taiwan or korean doc.. after reading the posts, can i say the recommended docs from taiwan is dr hsu and from korea is dr kim and dr jung from bk clinic? correct me if i am wrong...

erm where do i go abt finding dr hsu, dr kim and dr jung email add and their webpage address arh??

sorry to trouble u tanjih... so sweet of u to help us out heez :D

Dr Hsu is not recommended for you as i dun think he is the right person for your surgery requirement. He may be better for normal operation only.
As for eyes, i can suggest u go to Dr Su (lady) http://www.dr-su.com/about.asp for your kai yan tou and kai yan wei. and nose i would recommend you to Wishclinic . http://www.wishclinic.com.tw/service_a3-1.htm
if cost is not a problem, i would rather u go korea Dr Kim where he is expert in both surgery. http://www.bkclinic.com/

Just saw a Korean Movie abt a priest trainee falling in love with a lady he is suppose to baptize. Looking at the Lady face, i really wonder which part of her face is natural and which is not. very hard to tell really. Of coz, that is a possibilities that her features are all real, chances are her nose can be fake and so is her eyes. that explain how good the koreans are in the PS surgery, Try tell me which actress eyes and nose are fake from watching their drama. However that is not the case for those that had gone thru the Std PS. it is pretty easy to tell the fake as the features are too artificailly perfect and un-oriental. Wonder who feels or can feel the same as me? :P

Next, goretex implant as stated by Dr Jung and DR Kim give a less shape and parallel look than those Silicone L implant becoz of its more rounded and uneven edge. IF u see those pics from Dr Jung and Dr Kim website of Patient with Goretex and Silicone, u can find that the those with Goretex have more rounded look at the bridge and tip over the Silicone, however, some of the patient does look better with sharper looks which the silicone give. Thus my conclusion is that you must have a choose the features before choosing the implants material. if u like shaper and "perfect" nosey, and Sharp looks is better on your face, it may than be better to go for silicone. I find that there is no point choosing gore-tex if it cant give the features u wanted. i guess u wont be happier even if goretex is indeed safer or better than silicone. agree? :roll:

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..


May be going at mid December to this PS clinic for Double Eyelid via Suture. yupz i try to get a thai friend to bring me along.
i dun mind paying $350+ to try suture method.. than go BKK for shopping and celebrate my Xmas there.. maybe even New Year too.
