The only doc that i heard that is really good in using own cartilage for the rhinoplasty is Dr Toriumi in Chicago.. shit.. getting further n further.. :o

he don encourage silicone nor goretex, cos if anything happen after a few years, ur nose will deform :^o , and will be difficult to fix back, if u have goretex.. sound scary..

don know wat to do now.. :-|

I had already book the tix to korea, so i guess will go ahead to consult, whether to do it or not.. just have to rise up my pillow at nite n think really hard.. :?


Hello ocean11 !
Yes, you’re absolutely right! Dr.Toriumi is great for Asian nose unless distance problems. Hehe.
Beside him, there’s few surgeon also popular for asian faces.

for Asian nose : Dr.Flowers (in hawai – http://www.flowersclinic.com ) , and Dr.Toriumi

for Asian eyes : Dr.Meronk, Dr. Flowers, Dr.Charles Lee. L

How did u get it web from? I remember long time ago, I’d found him as one of the best for asian rhino in western area. he....

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


im wondering How’s your chin condition now? Is it wound healing nicely? Please take really careful of it since you have internal incision. dont till u got fever ok.
Huah.. reminds n makes me really trauma with all kind of internal incisions. No more internal ever! Hehe

Also, how did you make that cartoon picture you used for the avatar? by photoshop software? cause Its… really you?!

Oi, don't go chicago to do hor. In fact, don't do with a angmoh surgeon hor. Angmoh's facial structure is so different from asian.

You put pillow high high at night and think lah. If not high enough, i can blow you a condom balloon or two to stack up... hee hee...

Hi Ocean 11,

If you are really interested to have your plastic surgery to be done oversea, I would highly recommend BK Clinic in korea! :D Dr Kim from BK Clinic is the top best surgeon in korea. :wink:
I can provide you information if you are keen.

Cheers :)


im sure it would be useful to those intending to go korea for PS. share with us why u recommend him. :)


Hi,

Very simple, coz Dr BK Kim is the most reputable plastic surgeon in Korea.
He is from the best school in Korea, Seoul National Univ and he was the top of the class when he graduated. He is even respected by other plastic surgeons in Korea.
Last year, he paid most income tax in Korea among all the doctors in all medical trades.
If you are interested to have any plastic surgery done by him, do PM me coz I can link you up with him.

Cheers :)

Cuz i had a high and quite a big cheekbones dat i dun really like... BUT I'm really scared of the shaving.. as i heard from my fren, the skin will be cut so dat d bones can be shaved easily ! I'm so afraid of scars ! and afraid it will take a very long period to recover !

anyway i saw some of the patients reduce their cheekbones can be reduced by botox.. is that true??

Hope anyone who has d same problem wid me can share his/hers experiences here...

Yup, i clever hor?!!? *proud* You mentioned before (think is you) that Dr Chuang tends to be conservative, and i understand that because in Taiwan, people wants to improve their looks but do not want people to know they did something.... it's like... "i think you did something, you look better, but i cannot pinpoint where exactly..." In order to avoid miscommunication and disappointment, i brought a pic to show him. At least he knows what kind of looks i prefer. It really helps, because i told him i like eurasian look, and i showed him the pic... he studied it for 10 seconds and told me he can do it 80-90% similar... muahahaha..... don't know true or not lah, because i look like shit now... hee hee... but i prefer to look non-chinese :)

How come so many love hotel in Taipei huh? Taipei people love sex so much ah? Ohhhh no wonder people who saw your pic (your eyes) says you look good, like eurasian... now i know what aids you in healing.... CHANNEL 14!!!!! :P

Hehe, I can see you cleverness!
Since you knew if Dr.C being conservative by underdoes to his patients, then you’ve ‘raising’ up your ‘Target’ by bring euroasian sample girl picture!
Happy healing!

Eh, same with my meadow hotel I stayed too. Blue film in channel 14 !! hm.. I ever heard its good for healing and help relieve pain by pushed adrenaline eh?! hehehe :lol:

Dr Chuang recommends 2 more surgery for me, chin implant and what you are looking at, that's bone shaving. In fact, it's bone cutting for me. He will open up from inside the mouth, cut the bone to make it smaller (he did mention that shaving don't really help me).... definitely i will swell like a pig head for 2 weeks! If you ask if it hurt alot...... honestly, what do you think?! A actress in Taiwan who did numerous surgeries once mentioned that amongst all the surgeries she did, bone shaving hurt the most!

As a plastic surgery addict (yes i admit, and proud of it!), these 2 surgeries sounds tempting, but as of now, i don't think i want to do it. My cheekbone is not ridicuolously protruding, i can actually change my hairstyle, long fringe to cover the side. As for chin, doctor also mentioned my implant will be just a little bit to make it sharper, but the little bit is like so small i don't think i want to go through the effort.

My bf already complain "nose cannot touch, face cannot touch, you don't do chin hor! wait chin also cannot pinch cannot touch, you might as well wear that Hannibal Hector's mask!" :?

I have leftover of Taiwan Dollars about NTD20,000, which i will like to change with someone who will be coming Taipei for surgery soon. I change at an exchange rate of 21.71, but will match the current exchange rate. Let me know if you want, we can arrange to meet up for the exchange.

NTD$20,000 = S$921

I'm in Taipei now, and i re-did my eyes and epicantoplasty with Dr Chuang. I look like shit now, muahahaha...

Ok, just to warn you guys, please DO NOT stay in New Moon Hotel! I stayed there for 1 night on thursday, and i moved to Deja Vu the very next day. I stayed in the cheapest room, 720 per night, room 506, and it looks eerie, is ridiculously small, the bed stinks and the air is still and moldy. And did i mention there's free condom in the room, and free blue film on channel 14 and 15?! Yes, it's a damn low class love hotel!

I'm happily staying in Deja Vu now, it's soooooo much better.... aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh......

Erm, don't bother asking me how was my surgery, because it is normal to look like shit, it is normal to swell like hell, it's only my 2nd day and it's going to take a while before i can assess the end result. I can't see myself on the mirror during the surgery hence i really don't know how it went, unless i hear "oh shit! cut wrongly!" from the doctor then i know it did not go well. Also, don't ask if Dr Chuang is good. Please, if he is not good, do you even think i will risk putting my face under his knife? "How was your surgery?" and "Is the doctor good?" seems to always be the only 2 questions asked....... boring......





/Jovin



Hi jovin,

you do parallel or tapered crease? How many mm?

How much izzit?

Wish you have a fast recovery
