I have plans to do Chin, jaw implant and eyelid surgery at DreamSurgery. Most probably it will be a 2-3 weeks stay in Seoul. I think your last min backup before doing it with Dr Kim BK may be the same as I do..

What kind of jaw implants do you have in mind Velvet? Mandibular angles? And what kind of chin shape are you going for? V or the U?

is a nose that has small nostrils, not very defined tip but high bridge, a little hooked at the top, that means got curve, is that considered an I shaped nose or L shaped nose? Since it doesn't help with the tip, i guess it's I right? Very gd example = xiaxue, hers is I implant right?

pardon me but i think the best is to choose a doctor u trust, within ur budget and does both I and L implant and let he chose for u professionally.. not everyone suit I or L. sometimes it is safer and better to let the doc choose. all u need is to let him see the features u wanted and let him decide if it is feasible and suitable for u.. sometimes u must know there is limit to what PS can do so u dun get depression when the result is not what u expected..

Also to do a good PS, one also need good foundation to look good. some ppl with bad foundation, even PS liao also look ugly.. there are many exapmle in Taiewan media, like NoNo, XuYingmei, Jio Kong do liao also not much better..however i am not saying u got no foundation but rather for everyone general info

one ver good example is Yen, not everyone can make their nose as high n drastic change in height and shape of the nose as Yen's. it is due to her foundationn which allows her to achieve it.. Can Yen come n give her views on this issue?

Hi takuda,

have you consult any PS ?

bring your favourite photo of any actor/model you would like to achieve after PS, discuss with your PS..

That's wat I did before my PS, I did a korean L implant to achieve the look i wanted, paid abt $1900.

I have attached my photos below,
Ist photo is Before
2nd photo is 5 wks after nose implant (nose tip still swollen)
3rd photo is 7 wks after nose implant (nose tip deswell abit)




note tat nose takes 6mths-1year to settle down & subsides fully.

btw planning to do kai yan tou & redo my double eyelid end of this year hehe :o :o

i get your point. you are trying to say tat if one looks ok, ps will enhance and make the person look better. but if you're beyond hope and drop dead ugly, maybe ps won't help. right?

i understand. but the problem is. not all surgeons go for the features that SUIT you but rather the easier way to achieve a nicer nose.

that means, definitely the surgeon will consider your CURRENT nose to see what can be done. and being realistic, i don't wish for a high and sharp celeb nose. like what everybody say, ENHANCE but not to make it perfect.

maybe you all are correct, must let surgeon recommend lor, but what was my intention was to decide on ONE surgeon and go straight to him, cause i think no point going to 10 different surgeons. what if all give different views? so i'm pretty confused.

they say nose must complement the chin. i think my chin and jaws are reasonable ok(not squarish at least la) and at least a decent oval shape. i don't have prominent jaws by the side also.

some more its not i dun wan do research, is that local surgeons have hardly any info on their website, so even when i do research, all i see is the doctor's name and procedures then contact info liao.

was thinking over yen's doctor since she say it's good(true life exp mah) but i need alarplasty, which cannot be done by any chapalang doctor, ltr become MJ so pinched i siao liao.

maybe u all can recommend me surgeons good in rhino with alarplasty. :D

Wow! Ur scar is hardly visible? I've always intended on having a closed method rhinoplasty cause I didnt want a visible scar, cause even if it's not visible to others, I thought if u look closely u wd def see it. I'm glad ur real pleased with ur new nose Shermaine!

Hey Yen2006! I cant realy tell ur nose is swollen at all! It's healing really fast! You know when u do a big smile, do u feel ur skin around ur nose pull/stretch a little bit too much or it is normal? Cause I always had in mind that if the implant is a little too big, if I smile, the skin around my nose will pull a little cause I tried pinching my nose and then smiling, and I cant seem to go a normal smile, cause the skin is tighter. Do u have any problems with that? Thanks!

hi babe,

yes as expected from the father of korean Nose surgery, Dr Jung.. seriously, i wouldnt let another korean doc do my nose except him. cant imagine if u didnt limit him earlier but let him freely do ur nose to what he is capable of...
if not my budget constraint, i would have gone to him for my nose.
i really thank the person who first posted his website on this forum and after much research, readings and reviews, i know he is the only one in korea to go for korean nose..

as days passed, ur nose will get slimer and more defined. but than what u use is goretex (assuming) the nose will not be that defined as the silicone one but more natural looking.. may need 3mths - 12 mths to see ur final result.. also ur face will change abit as it suit your new nose.. so enjoy the process.

takuda, i will advise u for the last time, that u drop the idea till u are 18 bah.. at 16, ur nose bone is till growing and the implant will shift as it grows... if u want to have a crooked nose implant go ahead bah..
also what drastic change yen got from her goretex implant nose is of minority case.. i know another person who did hers ay kalo, but result is rather moderate. for yen, she has more skin at her nose bridge to raise her nose so high and sharp.. however not everyone can have that luck.

based on the pic u send me, ur nose is quite similar to another forumer's , he did L implant and the result is not desireable.. and i think,like him, to achieve the best and desired result, i think u will need open korean surgery, L implant and alar alone not enough, thus i suggest u save up more for the best surgery instead..

I am back fr my taiwan holiday trip plus consultation with Dr Su.

One thing I can say is Dr Su is really a very very very nice doctor. She treats her patients more like a fren than a patient. She takes time to explains things clearly to me even though she is very busy on that day of consultation. I feel very comfortable with her.

But one advice I am going to give to all those who plan to go to Dr Su. Pls be able to differentiate between reality vs your own expectations.

Dr Su may not be able to meet your expectations due to our own personal limitations in the first place. She wld give you her very honest & professional opinion but whether it wld meet your own expectation is another thing. So I wld advice not to plan your tirp in such a way as to have the consultation & surgery together. If possible, go for consulation first. In the worse case scenario that what Dr-Su suggested dun fit in to your expectation, at least you still have the time to re-consider wat u gonna do next.

Actually Dr Su does answer to questions posted on her discussion forum but the bottonline is she wld still want you to go for consulatation first before she can advice anything to you.




[quote="cacao"]Hi all,

Wow...I've finally finished reading all 317 pgs on this topic!

Thanks so much for all who have shared so unselfishly. And special thanks to tanjhj for recommending Dr Su in Taiwan.

I've decided to go to Dr Su for my eyelid surgery. However, she is not able to perform the surgery immediately after consultation. For surgery, need to book another day- Mon, Wed or Fri. Her consultation days are only Tue and Thur. I'm planning to see her on Thurs and hopefully get the surgery done on Friday. However, the clinic assistant could not confirm a slot for me because she said not everybody is suitable to undergo double eyelid surgery. They will only confirm booking when Dr Su gives the go ahead.

May I know if anybody has consulted Dr Su and then able to get surgery done the next day?

Also, the clinic says if I opt for the cutting method, stitches will be removed in 5-7 days. How do they decide whether my stitches could be removed on day 5 or 7? Base on recovery? Can I opt for it to be removed at 5 days instead of 6 or7?

Tanjhj, I think you mentioned you have a few colleagues who did their eyes with Dr Su. How is the result now? Do they like it? Healing nicely? Any visible scars?

I have emailed Dr Su with above questions but she has not replied. So I'm hoping anybody who had gone to her can give me some advice. I hope to book my tickets and hotel soon

It seems that nobody has posted any experience with Dr Su. I will put up a post when I get mine done.

Thanks so much![/quote]
