It was called Lipo Dissolve or Phosphatidylcholine injections. Usually uses to break fat cells into glycerin. Included to remove puffy under the eyes.Its works best for small area.
Many Dermatologist already known about this.

try biotherm eye serum, i use that.. and it helps reduce puffiness and dark eye ring.. (light blue bottle) sorry i cant rem the name .. but the green one is for wrinkle and anti aging.. so get the light blue one..

just sharing that when i came back from taiwan, i had dark eye ring cos i cant sleep at night in taiwan for consecutively 10 nights.. worried abt results, worried not enough cold press initially then warm press after.. so wake up time to time to do it..

well all i can say is.. my dark eye ring's completely gone now..
u need to use yr 4th finger or what u call the ring finger to apply the serum to the bottom and tap it lightly..
then u apply to the top of the eye to tap away the puffiness as well..

it is good for draining fluids .. so if u had eyelid surgery, puffy right, can use also..

immediate sulution.. is ipl or ppx .. go to a dermatologist..
or i can refer u for discounts.. i dun have the rates now.. if seriously intersted then i ask my fren


Hi Devilsmaycry,

I'm quite interested to know about IPL and PPX. I heard a bit about it, will the procedure remove my dark circles permanently or only temporary (included i take care of my eyes after operation).
Or do they only remove eyebags? (I don't have much eyebags, only dark circles.)

And lastly, how much do they cost? I just need a rough range to budget... Price of beauty is sad... :cry: I'm intending to go for IPL or PPX rather immediately... and is the doctor you recommend good??

Thank so much!


IPL is roughly 350 for removal of freckles on face.. but 350 only if u sign a 5 times package..
so it should be a the same for the eye area..
essentially a one time doesnt take it away..
that is my best contact so far ..
i think by far i heard it's 450 each time..
PPX is new and i heard less pain..
i tried IPL for removal of hair before.. it wasnt painful to me, so i am not sure why pp say it is pain..
esp when i have v low threshold for pain, i had eyebrow embroidery done and it was PAIN ! for me but others say it is manageble..
so i duno how pain is pain for IPL comparable to u
plastic beauty.. so what about it.. u can be one too ~

yes just want to second this .. lipo dissolve, it is a great method for eyebag removal .. non invasive like the cutting method..
the firs 2 weeks u will think it becomes larger, dun worry it is just normal swelling.. after that it will subside until its supposed desired form..
so u dun have eyebag ..
usually i think up to 2 sessions enough..
some pp only need 1 session
plastic beauty.. so what about it.. u can be one too ~

yes must believe our lipo expert here.

now u must be wondering why the PS doc would recommend u to remove ur eyebag via surgery while u can do it cheaper and painless vis injection
Golden Rules of PS:
1)If it aint broken, dun fix it / dun fix what u dun need
2)Perfect individual features usually dun yield perfect face
3)Work on your confidence 1st

thank you soo much for your help... Velvet_CK... Can I ask if you or any of your friends have performed surgery with Dr Park or from the OZ Clinic? If so, what kind of surgery is that and hope u can share your experience or afterthoughts...

i read that calf surgery needs to have a min 10 days recovery and i'm really afraid that this is a big big operation and of course, the accomodation costs.... Do u have any idea how cheap is the accomodation there? Sorry for soo much questions but really full of gratitude!!! thx!!

Nope, my friends and I haven't been to OZ. But i swim thru some korean forums about PS and they highly recommend OZ and BK clinic. But as usual, BK is reviewed to have poor after-sales service, as Dr Kim is forever busy.

Dr Park's homepage mentions about Calf surgery on the front page. http://drpark.co.kr/eng/
Take a surf at the webbie. They claim that Calf surgery's one of their specialty.

For a roof over your head,

http://english.tour2korea.com/01TripPla ... _5&konum=6

Most guesthouses are really cheap. I recommend you to take single room rather than the Dorm. Cause u need space alone to rest too.

Personally i lived in these 2 guesthouses. "Tea Guesthouse" & "Kim's Guesthouse"

Kim's guesthouse is really cheap, Single room is around 27k Won, = $43/SGD per night. Ask for discount since you are staying for a long time, or you can call them up. Or you can mention my name for discounts if she remembers me. hah, I will pm u if interested.
Its run by a korean couple Mr & Mrs Kim, Mrs Kim speaks excellent english and you can always chat with her when she's free, awfully friendly people they are. Get to know the foreigners there, You will see Japanese, Ang Mors, All colours.
I'm pretty sure they will help you when you need help.
When you are bored, there's a living room for you to watch Korean TV. Hah, enjoy life man~ Oh wait. Nearby there'r a lot of KoreanBBQ joints nearby serving excellent Pork and Beef, but i guess you have to take light stuffs. lol

Alternatively, you can stay in hotels. I think average $100 per night, up to you ya?

More questions?

Confusing

Postby winnie2006 » Thu, 01 Feb 2007 9:36 am

I will have rhinoplasty operation with DR. JungDongHak on next week. Now, I heard ppls saying he is not a board certified plastic surgeon. He doesn't have a good reputation among Korean doctors. :? :roll: I am very confusion and don't know whether I should go or not. Very confusing :???: :???:

Hi Velvet_ck ,

I need your help.
Do you have any korean friends undergo operation with Dr. JungDongHak? what do you think of the following Doctors?
- Dr. JungDongHak
- Dr. Kim from BK clinic
- Dr. Park from Oz clinic

I need to confirm my tickets on tomorrow but still confusing.... :???:

Thank :D

Hi girl, since you've already decided on Dr Jung, you must have your reasons for choosing him in the first place right?

Not a board-certified plastic surgeon? I wouldn't know about that but if you google his name, you'll find that he has presented many papers during international plastic surgery conferences. That has got to mean something right?

Doesn't have a good reputation among Korean doctors? Not sure what you mean here....Maybe they are jealous? ;D

At the end of the day, if you want to have rhinoplasty done Korean-style, it's not a minor surgery at all ( just go read on the techniques and methods! ). You have to be prepared and you have to be informed. If you're having such last-minute thoughts, I'd suggest you take some time to think over things carefully to see if you really need rhinoplasty after all.

Thanks dolphin,

You are right! My gut feeling told me that Dr. JungDonghak is good doctor. Many Taiwanese plastic surgeon are his apprentice. Maybe he is too popular, :lol: thats why some korean doctors get jealous about him. I can tell from his email that he is not a forceful person. Unlike other korea plastic surgeon are very sales oriented. :twisted:

I will update u guys my beauty trip :wink:

Winne2006,

Dr. Jung did my nose and I think he's great! Don't worry so much, just take the plunge and go for it. I'm really happy with my nose and I think Dr. Jung is good at what he does.

Hope everything goes well for you!
