thats cool cos im going to Dr.Chuang to do e goretex rhino too.
Wonder if u will know how long does it takes for e goretex to settle in its final shape? A goretx will still shirnk (contracts) to a final shape just like silicone rite?
So goretex is safer than silicones in terms of infections & complications??




shermaine wrote:hi appletree

mine is I gortex with ear and nasal cartilage, think dr. jung uses that on all patients, unless specifically requested for silicone.


there is no offical statement that mentioned that goretex is safer than silicone. however there is a stats done by a nose doc in usa. his records shows that goretex has slightly lesser infection compared to silicone.

the nose shape final stage is depending on ur own healing and how the inner scar develop around the implants. for silicone, the implant may be able to shift after 2- 3 weeks. whileas the goretex, after 2-3 weeks will have better grip as it allows flesh grows around and on it .

for dr chuang, he is worried that spore doc is not able to remove the goretex implant properly when needed, touch wood, thus he suggested silicone as all PS doc is able to remove silicone implant easily. also for some cases, i believe is due to the fact he thinks that person is more suitable for silicone.

your mum is a good mum, she is worried for u. for the money saved by doing at thailand dr nara maybe.. u can bring ur whole family there to support u thruout the surgery..


yeah, that's true :) it wasn't too bad except for the first night. 1st day surgery, 3rd day my frens went shopping le. I harder to go out becos of the cotton wool on my eyelids... my frens did nose

Nose implant is virtually painless. even afterwards. on a scale of 1 to 10 for pain after surgery, i will rate accordingly:

Nose - 1.5
Eyelids - 4.5
Chin - 6

Can you tell what exactly Dawn Yang did to her face from these pictures?

My fren is an ardent fan of Dawn's PS and wants the same done to her.

For the uninitiated, Dawn is so popular after her (alleged) PS, she is now working for MTV asia. Talk about investment and returns!

Dr Jung quoted me 4000USD for higher bridge and tip defining. One week recovery.

That's the normal rate ?

My budget is 8000sing dollar. goodness.

tanjhj,

Jolin did it by a taiwanese surgeon?

aadvark,

For your L shaped implant.. it's silicon or goretex? Or no thai doctors use goretex?

Thanks!

1) your friend have to save up big time to do everything DY did. $30k, conservative estimation.
2) is your friend able to accept the fact that she might end up looking like an alien if she follow blindly what DY did? What do you think will Mo Xiao Ling looks like, if she step into a plastic surgeon's office, demanding to do everything Ayumi did? Do you think she will end up looking weird?

You can ask your friend to schedule an appointment with a plastic surgeon to discuss what procedures she can do to enhance her look, not blindly follow what others are doing.

My mistake. Dr Jung quoted me 3500usd. usernameblah, Are you satisfied with the result? How long did you stay there in korea? Which hotel did you stay in?

I booked my flight on tomorrow night for two weeks. =s Fast and furious. Feeling a little scared if the op fails..oh noooooo. 10 k gone plus another 10 k to revert back. =s
