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.


omg!! then what should i do? if that really happens (wrong placement of L implant) do i need to redo my nose??
why my doc nv give me I implant??
so depressed now :(



u did surgery with which doc? and wad's wrong placement of implant? means the implant is nt in the middle or its crooked? or the nose bridge too high le?


i did with dr seah.. i also dont know what's wrong placement of implant (but tanjhj said too round a tip after nose surgery could be caused by wrong placement of implant)

but today i wake up it looks slightly (very slightly) better.

but i find the bridge not high at all lor, so disappointing, not much difference, but i think i cant expect much, my face not the eurasian kind, maybe can't suit high bridge

to tanjhj: thanks for the explaination!! i guess i'll just have to wait few more weeks to see the end result.. if in future i want to redo (say maybe in tw) will it be more expensive? since i already have 1 implant in my nose??

dr H charged abt 2kplus near to 3k after adding up the medicine... i doing only implant.


i read that u did ur surgery with dr seah last wk? u did L implant only or gt do tip and alar? i guess its still early to tell the results cos u nid to wait for 3 mths to conclude abt the results


btw u paid how much for ur surgery?

hi kaka i also did my nose with dr seah. i did L implant only and nw my nose looks high and sharp and i like it alot

i guess you have to wait til 3mths to judge on ur nose results and dr seah skills. cos my nose also look swelled and big in first few wks. after the swelling goes down my nose looks defined and small and sharp. no point rushing to find other doc or rush for another surgery.

dr seah is not snoobish doc. he is patient in explaining every single details to me and he even explained to me for an hr and didn't charge me extra charges for consultation. and his past patients b4 and after nose surgery pics are quite gd imo[/url]

frankly, i find him so so. maybe he is bad mood that day and also he seem to know i am here to "know" more.. his face changed..

anyway, i saw his work.. so so to me.. and as u know i dun really support L implant especially w/o tipoplasty protection

agree no doc is best but u can increase the chances of getting nicer nose and lesser risk by getting a good and well practised doc.

he did comment that my bridge is weak and my eyes can cut.. medium parallel is ok to him.. next he also told me to consider face lift..

i see... one thing i like abt dr seah is he is very honest in his comments. he is not like some money minded doc who can't wait to squeeze dry his patients. dr seah will jus ask you to do whatever is necessary to improve your current looks and i find him sincere and most impt i feel comfortable to let him do my nose.

btw sorry i think i din reply you in my pm? cos i am having my exams which ended recently...


for me dr seah say i got very strong face shape cos i got high brow bone and strong chiselled jaws so its better for me to have high nose bridge and abit sharp tip.. in fact i only did simple implant surgery.... i planning to do alar plus tipo-plasty to lengthen my nose in future but dr seah charges on tipo-plasty is much ex than simple implant... if i am nt wrong his alar + tipo is gonna be 4kplus to 5k... so i plan to do tipo-plasty + alar only in taiwan ba.... my nose bridge i like it and dun wan to change it


btw currently i have L implant. if i wan to do alar + tipo (using my ear cartilage) must i remove my implant and change to gortex?

im so glad ur nose is high.. dr seah didnt give me too high a bridge
he commented my features is soft, petite and feminine and i dont suit too strong bridge
so mine was just like an "enhancement"
i was hoping to get a higher bridge though
