hot pack u mean, hot towel is hot enough?
Cold Pack is for treating swelling (1st 3-5 days)
Hot Packl is for treating of bruises and blood trapped in your nose. Thus u need to apply it till the bruise (green/black patch) is gone.

actually in Chinese medical term, after every surgery, one need to take cetain medicine to expel "trapped" blood else next time this "trapped" blood may become a health hazard. Personally saw a doc released this trapped blood on my kneecap before, the blood color is dark red. but once it become solid form, it can be troublesome. thus vitamins, i suggest you to go medical hall and ask those old man for help.

btw, may i know what surgery have you done before if you don't mind sharing, thanks~!

i think previously jovin mentioned about a magazine selling at cold storage.. anyone still remembers whats the title / cost?


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 also techniques and materials used are outdated and unsuitable for asian.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..



hihi tanjih u did botox b4 arh?? hmm is it painful when the doc inject into ur face? and u know any sg doc who provide cheap botox with similar effect as wad other expensive local doc charged


not really that paindul, like ant bite. cheapest i find in SG currently is
http://www.tanteohclinic.com.sg

she charges 500 for each session. but for consultation charges, i forgot if she can waive it if u does your botox with her. maybe u can call before u go.



i realized this local clinic provide plastic surgery on nose n eyelids... n the prices like very cheap 2k for reconstruction of nose... tanjih haf u considered this clinic b4?


no reviews abt her and also she only does std style PS which i am not keen in, however her price is pretty cheap for a sg doc. Botox can go to her.

quite ok. for botox, result may not be immediately obvious. i dun think they use cheap botox if i not wrong botox is made by 1 co. only. also her cheap is due to her clinic is at housing area and she share the clinic with alot of other doc. call and ask loh.

still need to shave ur chin and cheek. else cant achieve that features.

oh yes, doing a few procedures at once should get u discount of 10-20% off per surgery. remember to ask for more disc when finalising neg with them. Taiwan can ask for disc one..

What procedure u are going for? if u want to have korean nosey, than only can go to Hanfong or Wishclinic liao.

http://www.wishclinic.com.tw/service_a3-1.htm

states that Shaving of cheek and chin will require 1 day of hospital stay and u need to see the doc at the 5th and 14th days.

try to ask the doc give u a complimentary dimple surgery (if u dun have) since u going for a few procedures.

did my research, realise very few surgeons do chin/cheek shaving. hmm, noe the price range in taiwan? which hospitals or clinic do tt kinda surgery in Taiwan..Hanfong? wish clinic?

w regard to tanjhj's qn, i am going for the chin n cheek shaving, nose(these are the confirmed ones) still considering kai yan tou(tentative)as tt surgery leaves scar...so yea, my new target is to look like Patty Hou with korean star's nose :oops: haha...im looking forward..

so tanjhj,

3k for nose...

chin n cheek shaving--->???

ok to include everything, u mentioned b4 to reach dawn yang's standard(which tt includes kai yan tou) is about 8-10K in Taiwan rite?<refer>
well???

its so ironic tt one who is supposed to be more enlightened, and "informed" aft research becomes more confused than ever...damn!

wat short nose long nose...i INITIALLY thot i jus nd a seemingly-simple nose job.. :???: ...i got short piggy nose..weep.. :shock:

Dr Hsu also does cheek shaving but limited area. Hanfong and WishClinic does it all. But i think Wishclinic does the real korean style nose and eyes PS while hanfong only does "handicapped" Korean style nose job.

for price, u can call Hanfong via skpe for live quotation and u can email wishclinic for quotation. hanfong and wishclinic are the only two clinic in taiwan that reply to my english emails. u can be more assured by sending them your closeup pictures of your face(side, front) if u want to do chin and cheek shaving, u need to send close up pics of ur cheek alone & jaw alone (front and back).

My estimation is twd40000 for korean nose, another twd80000 for korean chin and cheek shaving. u need to check if u need to pay for the 1 day hospital stay or is it included in the package. Korean eyelid is abt twd20000-30000 depending on which procedure u choose.

dunn need to worry abt looking fake if u sculpt ur features to suit ur oriental identity. This is what the PS termed it as Ethnic Platic Surgery. For Dawn, she make a mistake to go for a eurasian looks when she is a pure chinese and this is what i call losing ur identity..

The korean actress look nice becoz the korean style surgery is made for asian to maintain that identity thus, it is very hard to spot if the actress has gone for PS or not. This is precisely why i highly recommend Korean style PS to all Asians here in this forums.

As for Jovin, why she suit the L implant is becoz she has a strong brow and cheek but a weak nose bridge before PS thus she dun look weird when her bridge is raised by the L implant. In fact the L implant "enhanced" (not altered as in dawn's case) her original weak nose to suit her strong brow and cheek. However, not all of the asian have that.

Yup around there. If done in Spore, u need 15-20k min and u get at best Dawn's result whereas if u go taiwan or korea, u get Korean and Taiwan actress result..

U can also ask:

http://www.doctor.com.tw/magic/
http://beautymaker.hypermart.net/english/index.htm (got lots of pics but not sure if he does shavin) - Babyevil can consider this PS

This two PS doc are also reputable in Taiwan.

hi tanjhj,

i would like to ask you if botox can really reduce the size of the face from squarish to oblong...how much difference would it make? I don't have a square jaw but I think my cheeks gets puffed up real fat when i smile until my face looks like a pear shape...does botox counter this?

i'm currently also on antibiotics and external creams for my acne problem, will botox interfere with the face treatment?
