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


keke i asked the manager MS tay direct, she is the one which Yen mentioned. also u wanna ask for discount also has to go thru her so i just go to her direct.

they dun do jaw implant, what they mean is chin implant. mandible angle implant is very complex which alot of doc dun do. u may have to go TW le..

but i feel is that kalo is cheap for some simple procedures but not for others. as long the PS is more complex, they arent cheap le. also i only feel more safe under the hands of doc who can work on bones and is trained in authentic korean style surgery. but i dun know if their china doc is trained in these areas thus i didnt do my PS there. (this is my own personal thoughts not against kalo or anything)

and yes, ur price is very good for a reknowned thai doc which patients from Other countries flt\y there to do.. i believe his skill is of certain standard liao thats y he is known oversea.. am curious to see his skill level ... keke

Hi tanjhj,


U mean KALO only do simple L shape goretex implants? They dont touch nose bone...do u mean that they dont do septal cartilage?

Dr Chuang charged me $652 sgd for the epicanthoplasty if i want to do together with the open revision goretex....
How come he charge me so ex for the epicanthoplasty ...not $400.... sob sob

Then i told him if i wan to have a higher cease with my exsiting double eye lid , that will be the upper blepharoplasty, but hes charging me at a best price at 20 000 NT... duhz

Actually wat is e benefical of upper blepharoplasty?? Issit to remove away excess skin? keke

Do u have their phone number to call?? :)


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

Hi all,

Just to share some informations about goretex & silicone,

This is the email replied by Dr.Chuang... =p


Actually I don't think Goretex is the best material for rhinoplasty. It can be fixed tight with your skin, but that's also negative part. Once if your skin is getting atrophy when you are old enough you might take a chance to have a Goretex show. If this problem dose happen, how can you expect to remove it all? That's why I always think silicone implant is better than Goretex in some conditions. If you don't like silicone in the furture, just take it out!

We don't know if Gretex can last over 25 years becasue this product is manufactured only 10 years.



Hope this helps...... though im still in doubt... pengs. keke :P

dun mistaken i didnt ask if they got do tipoplasty using ur septal cartilage. however, they cant op on my deviated nose bone which required touching the nose bone. ok i also keen to know too so plz do ask Kalo if they does Tiploplasty using septal cartilage or ear cartilage and what is the price. i ask before le but forgotten liao.

for my $400, i am doing my eyelid together with epican.. maybe thats why.. also i book my price at dec/Jan.. keke

NTD 20k (1 k SGD) for eyelid job is a very good price in TW Ps le.
Upper blepharoplasty is double eyelid surgery, it is to remove excess skin and fats and also create the eyelid crease and altering it. Resulting in bigger and fresher looking eyes and double eyelid.

for ur case i belive ur upper blepharoplasty is differnet in procedures compared to norm as u dun need to cut a crease but rather to alter the crease height. to me 1k SGD is cheap but not sure abt what other feel.

thats is one of the reason i am doing my PS in my forties again. But i know good doctor who is familiar with goretex is able to remove it.

remember reading a post from dr jung regarding this issue abt removal of goretex at later stage. he say not really a problem.

as between goretex or silicone. u just decide if u want a more natural nose with some changes in shape or just simply increase the nose height. if u wanna natural looking and changes ur nose shape, go for korean nose using goretex implant else use silicone bah. else u can consider Kalo's goretex L implant which yen did and i find is a good deal for just SGD1.9k compared to spore norm rate of 3k.

i have seen dr jung's work on some of his customers' nose in this forum , u will be amazed too what authentic korean style open incision can do..

it is totally different from what u see on his website where he posted more conservative pics.

dear hello84,

well i didnt say kalo only do simple surgery. i mentioned they can do open incision but it is not going to be that cheap as mentioned earlier. I am not trying to influence ppl but rather post what i know from asking at kalo myself. of coz it is better for them to ask kalo themselves and i didnt stop them not to ask themselves or do at kalo, do i?. i just posting for reading reference and i wonder why u so uptight abt it? hpe u are not doing a personal attack as we spoke before and i know who are with.

i am not against kalo but i think i can post some field report which is my own thoughts and issues which i thinkmay need to be take notice. ppl are not as dumb as u think, they will check and compare themselves, i am just raising certain issues which they may need to know and what i think.. if u call this influencing than i wonder what is forum for?

furthermore, i am no longer and not telling anybody what they need to do and procedures they need, so i think ur accusation is invalid.

so yah this is a free forums, lets post more constructive field reports

i'm sure tanjhj doesn't mean it negatively, as we have all agreed that yen's nose is very nice... and tanjhj has said as much in his field report, which not just praises yen's nose, but also lists the pros and cons of the gorotex L implant...

it's a discussion forum, everyone should speak openly (not negatively tho). In the end, it's the personal responsibility of every forumer to take everything he/she reads with a pinch of salt

on a side note, there's this idea which perpetuates the forum that we shouldn't question doctors... i would say "hell, why not?!"

i could have become a doctor myself if I decided to pursue medicine, and i admit that i could be scatter-brained at times. Doctors are human too and could be blind-sighted just like anyone else...

University taught them medicine; not to be infallible...

Huh, but i wont want to do that in my 40s leh, have to go through the pain again meh? omg..... faint

Hmm..just wondering what's e diff where Dr jung mentioned a life time life span for goretex whereas Dr chuang mentioned that it its stil questionable if goretex can last that long...?

Not permanant does it means that the goretex will go out of shape or dissolve??

i think both goretex and silicone may not have a life time span~ i think it's common to do nose revision after some years
but you may be right though, silicone may be better easily removed then.. but 25 yrs later, who knows goretex may be easily removed also.. by some new technique.. but i do know some tw girls from forum who had their goretex removed, so it's still possible to some extent
