What are you planning on having done? I am scared too. I can only take two weeks off and I am wondering if that is enough time to recover as I do not want people seeing me all funny.

The hardest decision for me is just taking the final step and going thru it!



2 weeks is a big risk.. may need to expect to go back with heavy makeup to cover the evidences..

once u do ur eyes and nose, sure got ppl will notice the diff de.. so be prepared for onslaught of the aunties....

Is there a number for Twin Haus that I could call to book a room reservation? I tried calling the number on website but the lady who answered the phone could not speak English and gave a mobile number which does not work.

Greatly appreciate your help here. Thanks.

I went to Korea in June. It was summertime and hot. My nose healed fine.

I know alot of ppl say cold weather is better for healing etc but honestly i think its your own preference. I love hot weather and I healed quickly so I wouldn't worry about it if I were you.


Chiqita,
u leaving in 2 weeks time!? good luck dude.. me leaving to korea on end may too.. hehe..
But i stil haven decide which clinic.. too many to choose.. haiz.. tiring.. Heard lotsa good view in dreamclinic as well, really make me confused.. and taiwanese recommanded magic clinic.. fainted boy.. :???:

Not that i don have confidence with Dr Jung.. just that his website photos for ladies really not impressive.. abit too big for lady face..
so i decided to go korea famous 'Plastic surgery street' and consult before i make decision.. :P


agree with u that noses done by dr jung is rather by default prominent. but so far those jobs on his website and those send to me by fellow forumers looks good. coz i believe they requested for a prominent yet natural nose themselves. maybe u can email the docs and show them a natural nose u wanted

what i want to say is that if a doc skill is good, then he can make ur nose prominent or natural as u wanted be it dr jung or other famous doctor

thus the key issue is to choose a skillful doc and let that doc correctly know what nose u want.

Hi ,

I was thinking of going to Korea for shopping but in the end thought about maybe a ps on my nose will be more worthwhile. Dr Jung is my only consideration now. I would like to ask are there any stuffs which i need to prepare myself for the trip? Two weeks stay is the norm? is 7k enough for all? inclusive for the car accommodation from the airport? is 19 years old too young for ps?

7k is abit tight, but a female forumer did it with shoestring budget and she is ard ur age alone.

she stayed in budget backpacker i believe. hotel stay is the killer for most PS oversea thus if u can find a cheap stay and live on cheaper food, then 7k++ may be possible for accomodation, food and surgery.

I took 2 weeks leave too, after my PS! I made a pair of new specs with thick frame to draw attention away from my nose. My fren did the same with hers, no one noticed our slightly swollen noses!

My eyelids however too longer to recover and i had to pass it off as an eye infection! I had double eyelids in the first place, my doctor just sewed it higher to give the illusion of bigger eyes :)

7k is abit tight, but a female forumer did it with shoestring budget and she is ard ur age alone.

I think i am pretty lucky. I just got interested when i heard my fren tokking abt going for plastic surgery, and i enquired how much it'd cost.
Sounded cheap, and her mum looked pretty nice (did it a few years back).
So 3 of us got it done at the same doctor, I must say all of us are pretty happy with the results, and enjoying the compliments too! :D

I spent SGD$1000 for my eyelids, nose, and chin. Now i read thru this forum, and i realise how expensive it could have been! hee, thankfully, this round save me enuff for subsequent PS session.

tanjhj, do you know where jaw augmentation can be done? My doc couldn't do it as he wasn;t familiar with the procedure...

just out of curiosity, is spore really so far behind TW and Kr. For eg no surgeon in Spore uses Goretex(?) but they are all so expensive, in fact cos much more than TW and thailand.

Spore doc are expensive becoz of the lack of competition here. TW thou a more Ex place than spore is cheaper due to the Huge number of clinic there competing each other for customers. Dr Chuang is just one of the numerous good doc there who can do Korean Style surgery..

hi,

ur PS is cheap.. where u did it? can share? :D

jaw surgery if involved bone cutting is a major surgery, i need to ask if u are considering reshaping ur jaw or adding implant to ur jaw?

if bone cutting or sawing, gotta find a good doc siah, i think imjase will be a better person since he just did his at wish clinic..
