May i know you are going to do your nose with Dr Hong, are you going there for rhinoplasty, tiploplasty, or alar?
Have you went for consultation with dr hong yet?
How much you pay for the surgical cost?
Thanks

need to ask something abt nose
i just had my nose surgery 1 week ago
the swelling has gone down quite abit
but now my nose seems big especially the tip is so round like pig!
is this normal???

p/s: i only put L implant


too early to tell,

need at least 3 weeks.
I am surprise ur doc never tell u anything for post ops. guess ur doc not that caring. i guess is done locally? FYI, the tip takes the longest and slowest to heal than other part of the nose, if u have done I implant this wouldnt happen. however it may be also due wrong placement of the L implant resulting in the tip looking too big. u may like to confirm ur nose when due for ur 2nd consultation.

can anyone help mi on this.. i dun understand...

Rib cartilage is a good material for traumatic rhinoplasty but not for cosmetic application because self-arsorbtion is still an issue. Wrapping is another possible complication in the long term use. Some of patients are still suffering from high riding of rib cartilage but they think its okay. You should understand the positive/negative effects of this procedure before you descide to receive it.

which doctor told u this?

it says rib is good for reconstruction or repair due to accident or deformity, not good for cosmetic enhancement. also rib may bend in long term or get absorbed into ur facial bone and dissapear.
my suggestion is Goretex I implant and ear bone for the tip.. there is so little extrusion issue from I implant n goretex as they dun have sharp edges to pressurise the tip of the nose. next, goretex implant is soft like textile thus it rarely extrude. i understand ur fear n distrust of man made material but i like u to consider that man made material are good if used properly n operated by a experienced doc.

for more assurance abt goretex n i implant silicone n rib bone, u should see dr jung wesite nose.co.kr chinese

pardon me for not being sensitive. on my postings earlier. n cause some fear..it is common to be depress when the healing is not complete. just relax n wait for it to heal

this is example of wrong placement.. it is place too high thats why the nose tip look big, round and piggish
ImageImage

i should have said, if ur doc uses I implant, this wouldnt happen but I implant cant give u a high profile n sharp nose which u may like or requested.. thus he has to use L implant. L implant will tend to have swollen nose tip as the implant is touching ur nose tip and pushing it out.. it will take longer to heal but if does nicely, L will be nicer than I implant in sculpting ur nose however it has a higher risk of extrusion after 2 years like hello84's case. however have no fear as most likely the nose tip is still not healing finished. give another 2 weeks to deswell. no need to hurry to see ur doc as it is still early unless it hurts at the nose tip constantly.

no fear ok?

for reducing swelling very simple..

go to the Chinese Medical Shop
get the Scorpion grass - wu kong cao to brew and drink as advised by the medical hall people.

however the side effect will be diahorrea if drink too much.

next u also get almond powder to drink 2 - 3times everyday.

both will help in deswell and also almond is good for skin whitening and smoothness if consumed regularly

This will be how Korean style nose surgery will be done with goretex and roughly the same for silicone I implant.

Implant extrusion risk

from dr jung website. pls give him credit by choosing him as ur choice if u want to have the best nose doc in asia

It's possible with gore-tex as well but in case of infection after an operation using silicone a problem like the picture(arrow)may occur. It's hard to correct completely like its own skin in this case. To avoid such problem an implant shouldn't be used all the way until the nasal tip. Personally I think that especially medpore that is used like a bone or L-shaped silicone for the tip is not appropriate. In case of infection it's important to remove the material promptly. In our clinic we don't let the material for more than 7 days. Usually we treat the patient with antibiotics for 5 days including other injections but if the infection seems to continue then we remove the material right away.
Infection occurs at 1% and there is no way to gurantee a 100% safe operation. However it's important to operate avoiding infection as much as possible and in case of infection a prompt treatment is necessary.

For my case, it doesnt help me because mine isnt a stain problem, dentist told me, it's just genetic that my each individual tooth at edges are extremely white the rest are off white.. it looks like a cream colored stone that has undergone stress on their edge..

I went to pacific health group dentist at wisma atria 11th floor i think .. for regular check up and to clean my teeth. He didnt want to do laser whitening for me because not much diff, mine is relatively white already.. but i was looking to have those shiny megawatt smile.. tsk tsk.. so he told me, due to my problem, i can only do veneers.

Veneers, is basically can be done by everyone. take 2mm off each tooth (front 6 teeth only) and then they will place on custom make shells.. so u get a perfect smile.

very common these days.. it will be a little painful or i will say weird feeling, that was how my dentist described it..

if u have stained teeth, just go for laser whitening and ask doctor to give you a customised set. it cost $400. they will take a mould of your teeth shape and then you can wear it to sleep every night .. this is better than going to the clinic every few months to get it laser whiten-ed.

dentist recommended in fact.
each session with dentist is 30 mins.
every night if u wear it is 6hours..
and u do it nightly (until u are satisfied or whenever u find it necessary)

it is a good investment. i think get it done at bangkok. should be cheaper. give time to get the mould done..

no dear, not off the shelf.. my fren tried the off the shelf .. doesnt work well..


tanjhj wrote:DMC,

have u done ur laser whitening? does the dentist took 2mm off ur teeth? it thin ur teeth by 2mm or shorten it by 2mm? i know laser whitening works coz many of my frens did it but i didnt check with them yet..
maybe u can help me in this coz someone asked abt it but i am pretty noobish in laser whitening except i know it cost around 500+ in bangkok.

so in order to get those megawatt smile, do i need to do any other treatment on top of laser whitening?

http://www.healthaesthetics.com/laser_t ... tening.htm
http://www.healthaesthetics.com/laser_t ... ng_FAQ.htm


or should one just those off the shelf whitening gel which cost much lesser?


So how much is it per veneer tooth at Pacific Health Group dentist?

then as i age yea.. and get to sleep later.. my face starts to get smaller as well. the lesser you sleep, the smaller your face get.

i know that is a stupid method, u end up with dark rings and haggard skin. But i unknowingly found out about it. Thru personal experience and from observing my friends. exam time, face smaller also right cos late night study. unless u keep eating then u put on weight i have nothing to say.

dun go for a jaw job, botox to alter your face shape if u are very young.

If u have a cute face, it may be round, so be it, look at kyoko fukada.. when she was chubby cheeks, i still think she is damn cute.

get a pair of bigger eyes, that will help a chubby face.

but i believe u dun have chubby face, maybe it is psychological. we tend to be critical towards ourselves.. hear what others say about u in person..

--
tanjhj, u teasing me loh, i gorgeous i still go ps.. i might as well be artiste or model hehehe.. i am hidden beauty behind the comp screen.. and u are also very cute looking yourself. cant wait for yr nose to be done.. it will be enough already, will look v good le .. then we can go pubs together haha



i think my face is abit chubby on the cheeks ba. and abit round according to tanjih analysis. how to get bigger eyes? cos my eyes alr gt triple eyelids le so more or less my eye size can't change. maybe i can get sharper nose...
