Appletree,

Thanks for ur pic as requested. Cheers!

Takuda,

Her nose bridge is slightly raised and her nose tip is mildly "lowered".

if i dun remember wrongly, Kalo does do Nose tip using. ear cartilage. in fact it does open incision if required but the prices is diff of coz. I asked before ard jan 2007

By the way this may suit girls with sweet and gentle look, but not for me. I have a SPG (Sarong Party Girl) look, as ocean11 always says! Actually, quite true though, muahahahah....



SPG! OMG! Lolz. previously ur eyes more fierce, now sweeter liao

it is ok. i recommend it coz can see ur current left "eyebag" is slightly diff size from the right.

Good luck yen2006, I hope you like your results! :)

Thanks ocean11 for the sites,

I checked them out.
Unfortunately I can't read Korean, but I managed to look around.

It's kinda weird though, cuz the bandops site the pictures, look like oil paintings instead of actual pictures, I wonder why it's obscured.

Then again maybe i was looking at the wrong pictures.


Anywho, does anyone know how to look for korean doc board certification and whether or not Korean Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons is the real deal or not. I think it says on their site that it's the only licensing board for plastic surgeons in korea??

Thank you for your help!

i's :)

Ocean11,

Don't worry.. you just did surgery so there is alot of swelling.. I was still swollen after a month!

Aiyo, hahah I am paranoid that my bridge might be too high and you want yours super high.

What did you have done to your nose? Just augmentation? Also, I think if you told Jung that you wanted a relatively sharp tip he would have obliged?




ocean11 wrote:Leenaaaa!!
Look great or not.. i really don know lay.. i am anxious to know too.. i want high high.. but currently i cant tell yet, so afraid too low that i have to come back again..
and the tip look round to me!! :shock: could it becos of the swelling? haiz.. getting paranoid now.. cos i don wish to come back again for revision.. Sat going to take my splint out of my freaking nose! it really beta be good! else i will kill ppls on the spot! sounds frustrated!?

Leenaaaa,
actually i know becos of the swelling.. wat my frustration is i cant breathe normal, and the flu is killing me.. but feeling beta now la. keke..

not super high la, but must have some significant change ma, spent so much money.. must make ppls see liao jealous kind!! hahaha.. kidding.. i just simply like high bridge nose, but must brend in well with my face.. so let see Dr Jung can make me a happy women or not lor..

But so far i must say those patients that came in to his clinic gals all got very nice nose and tip!! esp the guys one!! gosh!! really really nice!!! so i guess he really good on guys nose.

except one women from china, her face quite round and her bridge abit too low for her, nose tip also abit too big (after 7 days post op) she don seem to be happy, cos not a significant change at all.. spoken to her and a tawianese attachment doc, he said she mabe nvr communicated well with Dr Jung, tot she want a very natural look that cant see much changes one.. so vola! this is wat she got after end result. she might need to come back for revision..

So when u coming for ur revision? mabe this time round u might consider getting a translantor, cos sometime i really don know wat is he talking about, and vice versa.. i guess his korean patients with pretty nose, they don have language barrier, so they can get wat they want.

Hi shoegirl, if you're still quite young, there's always lots of time later to try to fix what you don't like, right? Your parents will probably not have anything to say when you're old enough, earn enough, and they learn to let go. And also, your face does change a bit as your grow older in the period between 20 to 30 years old.

hi guys! juz thought i will update, as i'm currently close to 3 mths. post -op.
but first off, i gotta say a HUGE thank you and sorry to Blueberry, Hannah, and Badboy. am sure by now they will know what a paranoid/worrier i am, and had been repeatedly bothering them with my concerns. thks. so much to you all!

ok, basically, i hav come to realise i am an EXTREMELY SLOW healer...i bruise a lot more, swell a lot more...in fact, though others say pineapples helps in the healing, it gave me bad infections at my stitch sites...and to be honest, it's only been after 2 mths, that i felt my nose was seirously starting to take shape. in fact, when i look at my pics prior to that, i cant help but gasp how on earth i managed to face the world with that nose!!

on the bright side, the nose is shaping really prettily so far, but couple of days ago, my inner sutures where the alar reduction was done snapped, and it's now left a lingering pain inside my upper lip. i am worried now that it might change the shape, but dr. jung reassured me that those stutures were juz to maintain the shape temporarily and will hav no harm. however, i do realise that my nose flares more now on smiling...=( not sure if i rupture any other sutures used to maintain that too? but anyhow, the bridge he gave me exactly wat i wanted, not high not low, and most importantly and satisfyingly, he seriously literaly gave me a curve in my side profile!

never knew that could be done as i hav seen many esp on dr. kim's site where the noses are just downright straight from the side.

on a side note, i finally confessed to my parents that i did a nose job (cant prolong that further as my mum and sis are literally on the plane now to visit me!) and gosh! instead of chiding me, they actually said why didn't i ask them to go along to take care of me, and for higher bridge, sharper tip etc. hahah wat wonderful parents i have!
so shoe_girl, try not to worry abt it k? am sure your parents are juz concerned about you, and if you talk to them nicely, hopefully things willl work out=)

anyway, as i think i m relly picky abt stuff, i was already prepared to undergo a 2nd revision since planning my rhinoplasty to acheive my desired nose.
thus, have already booked a second appt. in mid august to do some refinement. and this time, my mum is going along with me (it relly relly helps to have someone take care of you...) so i cant wait!

juz one question to all pls, may i know if MINOR refinements are made durin revision, is the swelling gonna be a whole lot more, like with other revisions??

also, may i know if any1 had forehead augmentation with fat transplant b4?
i know that there is variable resoprtion rate, but wat i'm afraid is that the rate will be variable on the forehead parts itself, i.e landing me with a forehead of pitted holes at some areas!?!?!?

once again, thks. to all who have helped me out so much! esp. blueberry, hannah and badboy!
i truly appreciate it.
i will try to update once more b4 i fly for my 2nd revision. and hopefully by then, it will be ideal, and i can finally show my new nose for graduation next year!

take care! and all the best in your rhinoplasties.
congrats to ocean_11 too! am sure you will love ur new nose!! btw, think the actress you mentioned is song hye kyo yea?? she is beautiful ! i had the opposite consultation with dr. jung re her hgt, coz he actually asked me if i want a nose like hers, but i didnt coz it seemed too perfect. hahah now really thinking twice.... take care and rest well!
