tanjhj,
last time also thought that goretex implant can't make the bridge look sharp. I told dr.Jung so and he said that it all depends on the doc skill. He changed my first sillicone implant with goretex. Both implant has same height but I was surprised as how slimmer and sharper the new goretex implant look compared to the old one.

to shermaine. When my cast was removed, my nose bridge look so fat.. the tip also looked a bit blunt. Don't worry so much, it's all because of the swelling. As time goes by, the bridge will become slimmer and tip more defined/sharper. The height of the bridge (especially between the eyes) will decrease a lot too.

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 keropijennifer,

Ya, I can't laugh or open my mouth too wide at least for 2 weeks after ps.
after 2 weeks will be better. :lol: :lol:

:wink:

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

Yen


no i havent. :( will consult this november. after my exams. yen your nose very natural. :) agree that not everyone can have like urs so high and sharp. you don't look chinese, are you?

oh btw, yen, if you got go to KALO, can help me ask if they will do rhino for 16 yo? i scared they dun wan do leh. KALO's price really reasonable, but the problem is, after ps must stay in m'sia? :?



Hi takuda,

I'm chinese, but dont look like one after nose ps hehe :cry: :cry:

You can call KALO directly to ask whether they can do for you, the consultant is very friendly & helpful.

No need to stay in msia, can go hm directly after ps coz KALO is very near to singapore,take a cab outside KALO back to your doorstep only less than $40.

Hi rainbow5,

So exciting to hear about your consultation with Dr Su. After much thought, I think I would also go see Dr Su & Dr Chuang in Taiwan first. Will make a 2nd trip after I decide which doctor to choose.

So how long did your consultation with Dr Su last? Did you bring a photo to show her what you wanted to do? Also, should you decide to have your surgery with Dr Su, you can just go ahead and book surgery date, no need to have anymore consultation right?

Thanks..

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.




cacao wrote: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!


yes good that u post this.. yes many of the forumers are disillusioned from what they dream they want to look like rather than what they can look like.. usually, what they can look like is way lower than what they want to look like and they get depressed..

another thing is that many forumers, including me in the past become our own "PS" doctor where we try to fiqure out the procedures we work on our nose.. This is a big mistakes coz we are not professional, we are customers. thus we should leave the procedures to the doctor to decide, as a customers, we can only and should only let the doctor know what we want our features to look like and let him decide if he can do it and even he can do it, are we are suitable for it?

i outgrow this pit hole and no longer i try to think of the procedures of my surgery.. it is dumb to do it coz we rack our brain on something we dun noe. waste time and energy, we paid the money thus it is the doc who should work on it than us..

the only thing we should do and could do is to research the doctors within our budget and find the best doctor to give our cash and face to.. the rest of the work is the doctors job, not us..

yeah the goretex implants has new shape and sizes now. saw Goretex L implant at Kalo which Yen uses on her nose.. however, like i said, hmmmm not everyone is suitable for sharp and define L implant. let the doc decide on the implant shape and sizes that suit ur face.. we are not doctor and i dun think we are the best person to decide on how we look best. for more natural looking face, i still will trust the old trusted I implant goretex.. however, some ppl does look better in L implant but again, let the doc decide bah..

for example, there is a forumer looking to do her nose via Goretex I implant after doing much research and asking, instead dr chuang think she is more suitable in silicone L implant... so what can she or we do? are we going to tell the doctor what is the best for us? if yes, than it is better we find a doctor we just blindly do what we wanted...

Shermaine,

mine was the same as Blueberrymochi. My bridge was wide and high at the 2 week mark. It will keep changing but slowly and very subtly over the months. Even at 4 mths I still had a tiny bit of swelling that wasn't noticeable to anyone but myself. By 6 mths I think it was pretty much completely gone.......

Wether the face will change after rhino, yes it will but as in the overall look of your face because nose is a strong feature of the face. and the eyes may look bigger if you have implant because they were pulled closer together by the implant.
As for dawn yeo looking slightly different each month after her last ps, maybe the swelling goes down lil by lil so her nose look different :) Or she might do other procedures who knows :)

Hi all,

I'm planning to do Kai Yan Tou and redo my double eyelid by end of this year at KALO.

They quote me abt $1800 for both procedures, quite a good deal :lol:

OMG, never ending to PS.... :???: :???:

there isnt a time limit for the consultation but try to prepare a list of questions that u wld like to ask to avoid wasting time.

During that time, Dr Su was in the mist of another opreation so I have to wait for a while & she need to rush back to the operation after a while. But I talked to her assistant who is the overall in charge besides Dr Su. As I still have some questions to ask, I waited for Dr Su to come out after the ops. There are still other ppl who were waiting to consult Dr Su for their post ops check up but Dr Su was still very nice & noted my existence. So take the chance to visit Dr Su first & plan for the surgery only after consultation.

For my case, there's some difference in my expectation & what Dr Su suggested. So I am still considering the surgery. Dr Su wld actually perform a simple eye check-up for you to determine if u have any eye problems like ptosis etc before she carry on. U can bring a photo if u like but it might not be useful as it all depends on ur own eye condition in the first place. Dr Su wld not do things which she think is not suitable for you.

Pls go with an open mind & dun get too tied up with your own expectations to avoid being disappointed.

yes i didnt know there is L implant Goretex existed. however, i dunnoe if it is really goretex becoz at kalo, the implant has no official sticker of the manufacturer. so i assume kalo is not lying..

anyway, i did email dr chuang and his reply is he dunnoe abt it too. and he is dun have it for selection. and one thing to note.. dr chuang has so many implants to choose that u can get headache..

so i keep my finger cross and trust kalo not to lie..
