I've decided to do cosmetic surgery at Bangkok, veneers probably there too. Could both be done within a week's time in Bangkok? Is it cheaper and more reliable to do veneers in Bangkok? If so, which places to do veneers in Bangkok?

I understand lasik requires each eye to be done afew weeks apart and follow-ups a month later. Singapore National Eye Centre's relatively cheap and safe; but are there any other places, say in Johore, that's cheaper and equally or even more reliable?

As to doing lasik, veneers and cosmetic surgery on my face, which is the safest order that I should be doing these operations?

It is either PS 1st before the other two or PS last.. try not to do them together.. Veneer i believe is part of dentistry can be done 1st follow up by PS at the same day, as u need to see the PS for final consultation on the 7th day.

this vid will tell u what lasik doctor dun tell u. also why lasik doc dun do lasik..


if want to do lasik only do Zyoptix Aspheric Lasik
which is in spore only. it wont alter ur cornea natural shape thus no side effect like other type of lasik...

ya i think natural looking is quite important to me lei..
cos already now ppl think i have plastic surgery done.
anyhows, fixing the eyes n nose is quite common.. tsk tsk..

breast not doing yet.. still scared scared..

is ocean11 doing cutting method.. i think might be the korean mini incision.. does that swell as well.. cos i am either doing this or the traditional method, whichever is more permanent.. stitching sounds like it doesnt last.. i dun want to keep doing it lei..

Errrrrrr, when and where did you see me before? Aiyah can come up and talk to me mah, i don't look that fierce right?

Yup 1 reason i keep promoting PS in Taiwan is because they always go for natural look... friends will notice you look different but don't know what's the difference.

I agree with tanjhj about the "if it aren't broken, don't fix it" philosophy. Fix the minimum (face and body), the rest (attitude, the way you carry yourself etc) will naturally come from within. If you don't even love yourself, don't expect people to love you. Think positive try to be happy, this will reflect into your environment as well. This is the "Cause and Effect" rule :)

U look very good as well and i think i have seen u in person before haha cannot tell done anything at all.. very nice :)

jovinliu wrote:Yo PS-buddy! Why you want to do eyes again? The current one not nice ah? Yah yah age gracefully.... fat hope man. I am setting aside a sum of money for facelift lah, IPL lah blah blah blah! No way i am going to age gracefully, or rather, I do not want to age gracefully. I want to preserve my youth, just like preserving salted egg lah, century egg lah etc etc etc... hee.

Hey if we stop and be the beauty we are born with, one day these plastic beauties will be prettier, and just looking at examples, all the guys are going gaga over them at car shows, on tv, protesting for their "idol" that "no she didnt get anything done, the breast grew on its own, the sticker taped till it became natural crease"
all crap..
cannot lose to normal beauties
must always be one level above..
So .. yes i know where u are coming from.. we will continue to be
pretty ladies.. walking down the street.. making heads turn :lol:

went for a bad interview in the morning, some receptionist are simply f*cked up ppl and ought to be slapped. ppl in service line should learn to be nicer, imagine if i am really recruited, i can create hell for u!

Anyway, doctor replied me again after i mailed him my 2 other pics.. he asked me to do open rhino korean style to change my 'eng kor pi' .. cos apparently 'eng kor pi' is flat at the top, budge out then look like parrot.. whatever la.. i dun have NT60000 for that now and putting on credit is crazy..

what about i do my eyes, get Kai yan tou..

then end of the year go n find drkid = Dr Sukit (Thanks doc for revealing yr identity) and get a nose job and maybe get my boobies done! haha

drkid : i have thai blood in me.. and i speak thai, will u give me discount?

ocean11 : great that doc replied u, go for medium parallel same as me la.. and the kai yan tou.. we will be mei ren together =)

tanjhj : you know i bought from rachel the pills already.. then she v shocked to receive calls fr me.. and say she only can sell to patients gg overseas for ps.. cos in singapore is controlled..

everyone : if u are calling rachel for the SinEcch, please okie.. it is a herb medication from the states.. used for trauma or for pre and post PS or surgery.. esp for lipo right u need it more cos swelling is more .. Can i suggest u dun call and shock her?
Please sms her that.. u are referred to purchase SinEcch from her and that u are going overseas for surgery. Even if u do in SG, say u gg overseas la. If u call her, she might be in meeting or whatever.. quite rude.. lets be nice to our coutry sale manager that brings in many other beauty products.. i chatted with her a bit and exchanged name cards.. cos of the nature of my job.. ppl like to talk to me.. weird huh

healing time!

Postby sunkissed » Tue, 12 Dec 2006 7:13 pm

thanks for the reply. =) but the place of surgery is too far for me! =+
also. i came accross this website http://www.drmeronk.com that provides a lot of information regarding eyelid surgery. also specifically asian eyelids.! however, the picture they show for the healing period looks horrible! i'm kinda scared! and how long will it roughly take for the swelling and redness to heal?
i am on a tight budget, so i would like to know how much would the cost be. anyone has any idea? the cost for operating bigger eyes as well as double eyelids..

i understand what u want but i dun think u are able to do the eye enlargement surgery locally. double eyelid yes u can do it here.

local will be around sgd1400-3500 depending on doctors and technique used.

if u dun wan swelling that much u can go for stitching. however it is not perm and not everyone is suitable. if ur eyes is droppy and fatty, u cant do it.

if u want to have both perm and healing fast, u can to go to taiwan for korean mini incision - sgd1500 or locally done for $3500 at plastic and hand surgery clinic.

Bcoz i'm thinking of doing my eyes too to make my eyes look bigger & balanced, though i already had double eye-lids (natural one, nv did anything before). But the thing is one side is 'triple eye-lid' & the other side though is double, but not deep enough, (eg when theres makeup/eyesshadow, u cant see the bottom colour) and anyway, even when w/o makeup, as one side is double, the other side is 'triple' so my eyes always look one side is bigger than the other side. (like one big one small, though not very obivous, but it pay very close attention then can see) Anyone w the same problem? If already have double eye-lids, can still do it ? Will it be a waste of money? And will the tripple eye-lid effect still come back aft the surgery? What do u think? :wink:


Anyone wants to share? Got same situation? I still cant decide on this lei.

i have thot abt veneer..but later dropped the idea..........dental veneer can be done in one visit(cheaper compared to Por. veneer)...but the porcelain veneer which is more stain-resistant and brittle(expensive) ,must be customised to that individual's teeth thus take more than jus one visit. thus its250USD/tooth.

if u jus go for veneer cos u wanna have permanent white teeth...den perhaps u muz think twice...cos Porcelain veneer is so brittle...u may not bite hard stuff..like ice, or nuts... if u crack it in a way or the other...have to repair it... so yea, more$! :cry:

if u jus want to hv white teeth(like me), just do laser whitening...thou not permanent, but if u adjust ur lifestyle a lil, can last for years...like no coffee..tea...etc.
