Thanks for the well wishes.
I'm not all that certain about the implication of not being a certified PS. But from the consultation I've had with him, he's v knowledgeable and has written and/published articles and/books on rhinoplasty. And these days he's been invited to a lot of conferences and seminars on rhinoplasty in Taiwan and China (I know this cos the 2 weeks I was in Seoul he left for Taiwan the day after my surgery and he left for China two days after my last post-op consultation with him).
I've also spoken to this Korean guy who had his nose fixed after it got broken in an accident. He asked how I got to know about Dr. Jung and I told him. He said he's quite famous here.
The other plus about Dr. Jung is that if you're not happy with your final results, he will not brush you aside; he said to come to him and he will correct it at no extra cost.
In anycase, good luck with your decision and all the best on your PS.

Anyway... I saw someone posted at previous page, stating Dr.Jung is not a certified plastic sergeon I tawt he is ! since he's so famous in korea ! I was about to tell my dad he's almost perfect as in best doc in Asia .. ONe of d reasons to convince him to allow me doing nose job
I really hope he's a certified plastic surgeon anyway...
By d way does it make any difference btw certified or not? because if it's not certified = illegal.. am i right? because dey dun haf d right to use some certain medic on patients due to lack of knowledge.... Really hope someone here can help me to clarify this matter whether doing ps under a non certified ps will i bear a higher risk?? and also is Dr.Jung really a non certified doc?? HOPE NOT

It's almost 2 weeks since my surgery with Dr. Jung and so far I'm extremely pleased with the results. Fyi, there were several other forummers who went to him before me and all are happy with the results.
Like yourself I initially thot of going to Dr. Kim but changed my mind after reading about the experiences from forummers who went to him.
Dr. Jung also told me should I wish to alter anything (if the final results is still not to my liking) he will do a re-op with no extra charge. He is definitely nice and caring!
Anyway, good luck with your decision and all the best for your surgery.

ack, this is soooo nerve wracking and overwhelming aaaah!! Especially since I'm getting random input from my parents from abroad, and one disapproving father right here in Korea.
I've heard alot of rave reviews as well as complaints for different surgeons and I don't know WHO to believe!!! ACK!
So far I've been to three doctors, 2 worth mentioning.
First I went to Dr. Jung (Shimmian Rhinoplasty), then I went to the infamous Dr. Kim @ BK clinic.
Dr. Kim was rude and impatient, Dr. Jung was kind, gentle, the sweetest doctor. I can tell that he'd be very caring. Dr. Jung seems to be a good doctor with alot of experience, but he's not a certified plastic surgeon.
Dr. Kim, I heard is good, he's done alot of actresses work, but I also heard one horror story about him on another forum i think, and that makes me have reservations.
Anyone else here about these doctors?? Please give input this is all so overwhelming aahh!
I'm going to be spending alooot of money the next month or so. I'm also getting eyelash / eyebrow implants done in korea.
My girlfriend got hers done and went from having zero lashes/brows and it looks amazing! I'm excited!
does anyone have info about Dr. Jung or Dr.kim bk clinic??
