Some people say their nose is still upturned after surgery and it's meant to sink over time?

Is that true?

1. open rhinoplasty with Goretex - NT68000 & NT10000 for the additionally so total is NT78000. that equals to SGD$3550

2. liposuction of face - NT50000. that equals to SGD$2275

3. lip reduction - NT30000. that equals to SGD$1365

Total is SGD$7190.

But he gave me a package price of NT150000 so its SGD$6828, in the end the discount is only $SGD362.

Can someone tell me if i can ask for further discount?? Or is the price he is giving is already very reasonable? As I'm still a student, my budget is also very tight.

I was thinking to keep them under $6.5K. can someone please advice me.. really desperately need some advices here. Thanks.... :?


u mean 3400 is not inclusive of evrything??? we have to pay additionally for the anesthesia?! omgg i didnt know!!


dun get the general anesthesia. i think almost all PS surgeon need u to pay extra for it.. just get the normal package will do.. than everything pao ka liao (covered)

anyway based on feedback from those who went to deja vu, there is restaurants and foodstalls near the hotel around 100m away. just need to walk out with the surgical mask and i remembered there is a jap restaurant selling various bento set for around SGD10!

[quote="jovinliu"]My eyes.... doing great! Love my new eyes :) Wah you can really sleep leh, from 2pm to 9:30pm! Hee Gia, it's abit too late, but didn't you know you can call the receptionist of Deja Vu to help order packet lunchbox? You don't have to starve for 3 days. Or, it's common for taiwanese to wear mask if they caught a cold, so you could have put on a mask and a hat, and get food.

Hi TAnjhj

Postby Shiyun » Wed, 16 May 2007 1:14 pm

Hello tanjhj

Have you had your surgery done by Dr. chuang? Do you mind if i can see your photo? which part of your face did you alter?

I'm considering Korea because it's famous for P.S and the doctors are very skillful. but i don't mind to try Tai wan WISH clinic for other procedures if it's really great results.

Tanjhj my personal email is airene_1@hotmail.com May we exchange photos?

Dr Chuang charged me $32000 for both epicanto and re-doing of my double eyelid. I didn't ask him for the breakdown.

I'd love to do epicantoplasty, but i ain't sure this is going to suit me. Jovin , if you don't mind , may i ask how much does Dr. chuang charge for epicantoplasty? 8-)

I'm going to BK Clinic in Korea sometime in Nov. I'm there to see Dr. Kim for more complicated procedures for the eye.

Is there anyone who had went to BK and what's your opinion? :)
Hmmm... what should I do next? Cheekbone reduction maybe?

Hmmm.... it looks like... ahhh! sometimes when mosquito bite, it will turn dark right? Like, in the middle something small poked inside before, then around it there's a dark ring.... that's the best i can explain :) I can take a photo and show you, but then i'm using a new laptop and i don't know how to on the stupid bluetooth for the file transfer :mad:

For me, it's definitely not a white patch leh. Mine is dark. The are about 1cm in diameter, and i have noticed they are starting to lighten.


LAGirl wrote:Hey Jovin -
Thanks for writing back to me. What do the scars look like? How big are they? Did Dr. C tell how long it would be to fully recover from the scarring? I heard when you do this - it's like a white patch but I didn't know there was a scar...
also, how much NTD did you have to pay?
Again, thanks for getting back to me ;)

I won't say it's scar.... it's a natural reaction after the laser mole removal. The dark ring is getting lighter each day.

LAGirl wrote:Jovin -
that's strange... i remember you posting that you removed the flat moles right? (i'm removing flat ones that looks like a small dot)...cuz I was researching online and it looks like when you remove the flat moles with laser it shouldn't lead to any kind of scarring? now that i read what you wrote, i'm kind of scared b/c i don't want any scarring on my face...

Funny thing is, i didn't bruise at all. Not even the light yellow type which tends to spread around the eye. It can either be because of the Sinecch i took, but don't think so because previous time i took Sinecch too but i got light bruising around my eyes. Other than that, most likely is i "accidently" ate 燒酒雞 after the op! I was hungry, so i went out to tahbao dinner. I ordered 燒酒雞, thinking it's a small portion for 1 person but hell i was wrong, it's at least half a chicken inside! It's cooked with lots of ginger (which improves circulation), some herbs and lots of chinese glutinous wine. After finishing everything, i was feeling lightheaded, abit drunk and goggy, and DAMN WARM.... and ta-da! I didn't bruise at all. But i don't suggest you try it, because it's not proven and it may just be my ass luck.

First week, don't even think about going out without at least sunglass or specs. Second week better, this week the swell is not obvious to others except myself, and it's already looking natural (after makeup) by the second week. I'm very surprised. With my eye make-up off, actually it's still looks abit swollen, but with makeup (of course your makeup skills must be good lah!), no problem!

Jovin''s photo

Postby Shiyun » Wed, 16 May 2007 3:52 pm

Hello jovin, may i see a photo of your eyes when you have fully recovered? All thanks to you that i came to know Dr. chuang.

I had booked a consultation with Dr. Kim in Korea but if the results of dr chuang is good, I 'd like to have the surgery done by dr chuang in taiwan instead.

Do you mind me taking a look at your photo of your eyes? thank you. Would really appreciate if you can assist me in this. thanks. I really would like to improve on my eyes since many people said that i looked tired. i can also email a photo of myself recently to you if you like. :)

Thank you very much. :)

I'm intending to do facial lipo with Dr. chuang. But from his replies thru email, the incisions doesnt seem to be done behind the ears, this is what he said:

Cheek liposuction:
Yes I think liposuction over cheek area will be good for your slimming down the shape. We perform this procedure through the mouth. However I will suggest you to take general anathesia for this procedure.


HMM.... this is weird =/
