I am planning to do nose and epicantoplasty. I am thinking of giving my eyebrow a 3D view as well. But I am not sure where I want to do.


haha, the other time, one week after my surgery, i went jean yip for 3d eyebrow embroidery.... special offer at SGD588 but still felt a bit of the pinch cos my whole surgery cost only SGD1K, my eyebrows cost more than half that!

but not too bad la, really look like real hair. instead of just one overall shape like tradition eyebrow tattoo, they create the shape by drawing diagonal lines, so the lines look like real hair... quite realistic... pretty natural looking after 1 week.

but 1st week do liao, i looked a bit like la4 bi3 xiao3 xing1... haha, so i had to actually use concealer on my eyebrows!

bobien, my family has some weird genetic trait where there is an obvious break in the middle of our eyebrows (like kena shaved off), which i read is really bad for face fengshui...


You can see from here abt my eyebrows...

I have just called kalo. I will be going over this wednesday for consultation. Im not sure what to expect.... :?


as Yen said, u should try to speak to ms tay, the main consultant. the one i spoke to like know a bit dunnoe a bit, was quite annoyed...

kalo definitely offers more services than dr nara. for how good both are, i would say check out the pix in the forum to compare... i think yen's nose is nice, but i also like mine and my fren's, so really up to u to decide :D

price-wise, for the same things, dr nara is definitely cheaper than kalo, which was what brought me to hatyai in the first place... cos i'm a guy living in poverty, hahaha :D

so in the end, depends on what you like, and how much u can afford ba

May i noe for the chin implant rite.. where is the wound ah? for nose implant is inside our nostril ma... cannot see at all.. what abt chin implant? Thanks!

Kogal...

i tink we need either nose trimming or alarplasty.. depends on what the dr wanna do for us.... :D


chin implant also inside. inside the mouth.
if u look into mirror, and pull ur lip down, u can see where ur flesh meets the gum?

they will make the incision there and insert the implant from there then sew back. chin implants can be done either internal or external.

internal good thing of course is cannot see scar, but hor, becos of food u eat, saliva etc, u must take be very careful. must watch what u eat then brush regularly, use mouth wash regularly until wound completely heal.

like a typical guy, i totally heck care, sometimes forgot my antibiotics also... in the end, kena infection. the tiny wound swell up and even swell SIDEWAYS! in the end, looks like a huge fat bloody leech sitting inside my mouth! my frens were all grossed out... had to go GP for antibiotics to remove infection...

chin implant also painful after anaesthetic wore off... but in the end i was most satisfied with my chin implant cos make my face look slimmer, more defined from front view...

now need to do my jaw implants so i look more defined from side view! haha :D

i going there to do jaw, thinking of doing veneers at same time...


Which dr did you consult? did they have before and after pics? I am very intrested in mandibular angle implants and wrap around chin implants but duno which doc does it. Been on consultations but not happy yet... I am very interested in what you have found


emailed them and dr nomar replied... still bouncing emails back and forth... so far found out:

1. USD$1200
2. outpatient procedure, means can go shopping after surgery! :D
3. 7 days after surgery must go back to remove stitches and review
4. they use silicone implant
5. they do it internally, from within the mouth

gonna ask them whether they got shave the implant before insertion, and placement of the implant...



Why did you choose Dr. Nara? I am a little worried about going to the south but curious why you didn't choose any Bangkok doctors. I am in Bangkok now doing my consultations...

Aardvak can I have your email please... mine is mbk122@hotmail.com

I would really like to know how your mandibular angles turn out.. also what kind of chin implant did u get? I real;ly want a SQUARE one and so far I have seen implants with just one shape.. I want very angular one.

Also, did your chin implant give you any verticle length from the front view? I really want this

1 for USD80
its amazingly cheap leh..

i heard SG's one is like...$500/$600 per veneer
how come yours so exp?! =x

oh anyway in order to fit the veneer, MIGHT have to modify ur original tooth abit, but really MINIMAL! so dont really hav to worry =)


EH! Just slightly read it! No! porcelain veneers is not that cheap.even in Thailand, I think $80usd /teeth is for Composite veneers. Not Porcelain veneers like the web I gave you. Its really different. composite veneers just a simple filling of your teeth for crooked teeth.
Please reconform it again... good luck.
