Hi yen,

Waooo that sounds cool. But if i already have double eye lid but just want to do epicanthoplasty n blenoplasty, cost of doing these 2 procedures is $1200 together?

Wonder if KALO use tip graft from septal cartilage for the nose tip? Hmmm.... may i know urs is open korean revison? Did they do any tip graft from septal cartilage for the alar?

Yea, must have a look at cupid's eyes...so NICE! keke... but i think he did his surgery by Dr.Chuang... :cool:

Hi,

No lar...Dr.Chuang's price is reasonable ...but just that hes too far away, need to spend $$ on the air tickets & hotel $$$, whereas KALO we can just drive in from there....
If i were to do at KALO, i can save about a total of 2k on just air tickets & accomodations liao wor... :P
But as for the skill experiences, i think Dr Chuang should be good?! How bout the doc in KALO? Are they good with qualified certifications??

Hmm... as for the tip refinement, i want to find out too leh, keke. Wether if they use tip graft from septal cartilage??
Think maybe must ask our expert yen here.. 8-)

yeah reasonable. cos he quoted me 3.5k for tip alar, I implant, Goretex additional 400(i think). but travel there and accomodation really adds up to around 5-6k.

yen say call ourself cos she's not very sure. so if anybody is to contact/visit kalo, do help us check out yeah?

Hi appletree,

KALO opens Monday-Sunday 10am-7pm, call for appt before going in case of Public holiday.

question

Postby mynose! » Tue, 17 Apr 2007 9:33 pm

For those who have gotten surgery done to their face, do u ever feel any form of regret?...

like i dont want to sound rude...i know that some people who have gotten surgery done really regreted it, not becuase it turned out bad, but u know the fact that ur changing who u are, but for who?..yourself...trully isnt the inside that really matters to u?

i just wanted to know becuase i plan to gone my nose done this july. But i think sometimes why would i want to change parts of me that make me who i am.

So yes..i just wanted to know so that i can be sure. Thanks

Re: KALO CLinic Field Report

Postby tanjhj » Wed, 18 Apr 2007 1:23 am

tanjhj wrote:Today I went with Yen and her family to Kalo clinic at JB. I have the luck to see her and her sister did their nose job at kalo using Goretex L implant. The clinic was quite new and pretty clean. have a tok with Ms Tay and one of her consultant. her consultant is quite pretty but no operation done, so she was all natural and i asked if she is thinking of doing her nose... and she say "how u know.." lolz

after that i proceed to a small room for consultation and i asked what would she recommend for me to do.. she use a toothpick to create a eyelid and commented that i am not suitable for stitching method coz i have excess flab at my outer corner of my eyes.
i asked her what eyelid i should do and she recommended medium crease. ok, at least her freq is same as me..lolz and i asked if i wanna have bigger eyes. she recommended Kai yan toh and kai yan wei.
than she pinch my nose bridge and commented on my nose and suggested the most expensive goretex nose package and said i may need to have open incision to work on my slightly deviated nose bone and also the lipo for my face.

than she proceed to show me their pricing and tried to psycho me to sign up and pay deposit for my eyelid surgery, i told her i am going overseas on 10 jan and her manager told me "enough time to heal one, stitching heal in 1 week, cutting one less than 2 weeks..." however i was thinking like huh... where got so fast healing rate.. also i am not going to holiday with a swollen eyes and not able to eat anything i like becoz of my surgery loh.. siao ah...lolz

i told them that i will get back to them later on after i return from my holiday... than the younger consultant face become abit less friendly. Ms tay is more professional and she kept her friendly gesture..

after i left the room shortly, Yen came out and i was shocked wah her nose so big.. oh later i was told it was because of swelling.. but than YEn amazed me because after a while her swelling came down alot in just 1 hour.. amazing healing rate... she did a high bridge and sharp nose tip with the goretex L implant and her face changed dramatically from before her operation. her face become more 3D and her nose tip much higher and sharper. and yes her eyelid also kinda change slightly.

after 1 hour, her sis came out and they got identical nose. lolz but ithink Yen's nose is nicer as it suit her face more than her sis. later the china doc came out and he answered my question i posted and he agreed that i should go for normal cutting technique with kai yan toh and kai yan wei.. and he did say that thou my nose bone is slightly deviated ( i guess due to my pref to sleep on my side) however he can customised cut the goretex implant to suit my slightly deviated nose bone so that it still can appear normal and straight. wow i guess this is something which i suspect goretex can do which silicone cant.

what amazed me the most is the Goretex L implant. Kalo has three type German made- RM 1888. Very straight and high bridge but is harder but still softer than silicone, USA made - RM 3288. slightly curved outwards not as straight as german made so will look more natural but slightly softer than silicone. Korean made - RM4288. the goretex is straight L but it is one goretex implant but made up of 3 sections the top section is harder , the medium less hard and the nose tip portion is soft. thus when u pinch the nose ti, it is softer. if open incision is needed. it will cost RM8000 onwards..very expensive...

at RM1888 and RM3288 for the normal goretex L implant, it is cheap but not sure if it suit all ppl thou.. furthermore goretex is slightly softer than silicone so less extrusion risk

their eyelid stitch method is cheap at RM1288 thus those with no excess skin and fatty eyelid can consider but bewarned, the eyelid may drop after 8 months - 2years. lucky wll be more than 3 years. but their normal cutting is same as taiwan price but if i add the Kai yan toh and kai yan wei it will be RM 6000. 40% more expensive than Taiwan Dr Chuang TWD41000. same price as spore doctor. furthermore dr chuang is using korean cutting method than normal one.. saw their photos and the nurse as live demo, i dun think their eyelid is up to standard yet. unnatural looking eyelid job. stitch wise still can do..

I have a tok with the china doctor too and he told me he is not trained in korea and i dun think he knows how to do korean style nose job. and he told me that china PS skills is now better than korea becoz there is more ppl for them to operate on...well i leave u to judge..


Pro of Kalo:

cheap to affordable normal Goretex L implant nose job only. cheaper than spore by 70-50%. around 10-30% cheaper than taiwan.

cheap "korean" eyelid stitching method. cheaper than taiwan

expensive breast job, same as spore or more ex

chin augmentation, same as spore or slightly cheaper
Lipo - around same as Spore or slightly cheaper

Con of kalo:

relatively cheap eyelid if only doing eyelid but was not very amazed by the eyelid photos and skill. Taiwan eyelid skill still better looking and natural, next their price is more expensive than taiwan. also they do only normal eyelid cutting method.

the doctor give me this impression he is just working and doing his job there. doesnt really have passion in his work.

Conclusion: at the price Kalo is offering, i would recommend it to ppl who just want a normal L implant nose job and stiching eyelid can go there.

However if come to more complex surgery like open incision nose job, and Eyelid cutting for optimal eyelid looks, i dun think kalo is up to the mark. if those wanna do eyelid n nose job together, i rather u go to taiwan...

Lastly, i like to thanks Yen for sharing Kalo with me and allow us another cheaper alternatives than thailand..

Kalo contact: 07- 334 4399 plz mentioned u r recommended by Yen for better discount.. :P Update: not willing to give disc, even with package discount also expensive..


dear all,

abv is what i posted abt kalo before. my thinking for kalo is still the same as abv. good for simpler surgery like nose implant and stitch based eyelid surgery which are highly reversible.

however regarding more complex surgery like nose open incision with ear grafting, their price will be more ex than TW . around 4k to 6k.
those like me which needed to work on the nose bone not able to do. they dun do goretex I implant. all L implant.

what i doubt is their claim for goretex L implant. it may exist but touch the texture, find it to feel and look like silicone with translucent color rather than the white color which i usually see. thus there may be shadowing effect like most silicone based implant.

nevertheless for those on budget and just need simple reversible PS, i would recommend there as i did in the past.

as for my surgery needs, i asked kalo before. total cost is around sgd8k more ex than TW and they cant do goretex I implant nor touch my nose bone. that why i didnt do it with kalo.

hi mynose :)

hmmm, it's an age-old argument of course... Why can't he/she love me for who i am? For what i am inside?

but of course, on the other hand, all of us are brought up on old classics like cinderalla, sleeping beauty... mostly expounding the merits of external beauty over inner beauty...

it might be easy to get hung up on how shallow your potential partner is, but i venture to ask how many of us have not dismissed potential suitors on mere whim, just because he/she does not match your criteria of outward appearance...

like a present poorly wrapped, or an ugly misshapen cake... your first impulse won't be to open the present or eat the cake... appearance does matter, but it isn't all that matters...

external beauty invites people to take a peek at your inner beauty... i would highly suggest that you do NOT fall in love with people who are only after your looks

moreover, research has shown that beautiful people tend to make more money and are more successful in life... http://money.cnn.com/2005/04/08/news/funny/beautiful_money/

thinking back to your school days, in pr sch, it has always been that kids flock to the prettier teachers; in sec sch, everybody wants to befriend the school belle/school jock...

it's human nature... might not be the best argument but sadly is just the way it is :)

shopaholic wrote:Hi everyone, I am all prepared to do a nose surgery (rhinoplasty) and have chosen Taipei since I have a friend here who is willing to put me up during the recovery period.

My first choice was actually Dr Zhang (Yan Lu) who studied in Toronto and has a clinic in Taipei (Xinyi District), but upon calling the clinic, the reception told me the doctor will only be able to perform a rhinoplasty after May 20th as he is going overseas and wouldn't be contactable during the recovery period if I did the surgery now.

And so, I called Dr Xu Yong Kang as mentioned (and recommended?) by a member of this forum (JovinLiu). I have tried to search for information on this particular doctor on the web but found nothing literally. I called the clinic up and the lady from the reception asked me when I want the surgery. I told her I hope for it to be ASAP, and she said, "oh then you can come do it tomorrow, I'll schedule you a time and you can do it right after consultion." My initial feeling was happy as it is of course awesome that I can do the surgery the next day. But the thing is I am worried since there wasn't a need to book in advanced nor was the lady gave me a "warm/friendly" kind of feeling on the phone, more like strictly business. Any help or advice on whether or not I should just go have a look and consult the doctor tomorrow morning would be much, much appreciated.

Another doctor whom I am considering would be fairly more pricey as he (and his clinic) have gotten a lot of media exposure over the years. The doctor's name is 張炯銘 but a friend of mine said her experience at his surgery center was not a good one because the ladies there were very pushy, telling her stuff like, "you should do this, you should change that...".

Basically, I will just go ahead with Dr. Xu Yong Kang tomorrow if I feel comfortable with him. I am just apprehensive since there wasn't a need to book at least a week in advanced. It was more immediate anything, so right now I am happy but just a tad nervous. Any advice and thoughts will be very much appreciated. Thank you!


good luck and enjoy ur PS! :D

i went there for consultation on sunday, i have whole list of prices (me kiasu), keke :)

will post them when i return home from work


they do, but not cheaper than TW or more Ex. check before le.

also the doc is not trained in korean style nose surgery. the question is u really need tipoplasty, if dun really need than a simple L implant at kalo is suffcient.

for ppl like me with bulbous or flatter nose tip or wanted to change their nose shape will most likely need it.

as for epi and canthoplasty for ur eyes. i think dr chuang charges $400 if do with eyelid or $800 w/o. since u doing your nose, maybe he will charge u $400. u got to ask him. for me, he is charging me $400 for each. keke

tanjhj, just read ur field report...

at least ur consultant seems to know more, the consultant that spoke to me like know a bit, dunnoe a bit... then everything also quote me RM2800

most angry is i called and asked if they do jaw implants and they told me they do, so happy... went down then tell me dun have...

but i would agree is a cheaper alternative to taiwan and korea, altho i still haven't found a PS cheaper than the one i went to, hahaha :D
