Kogal87,

I had my stitches removed at a GP here.. I think you can go to anyone. It cost like errmmm I think $15-30? Not sure can't remember. But it isn't expensive.

Removal of stitches is a little painful, I think it has alot to do with the fact that the stitches are really small and the doctors aren't that used to removing those kinda stitches. And no, they didn't use any anaesthesia on me. Maybe you can request it?

cuz i wanna go overseas 2 do some procedures
but wanna come back to sg asap

Can you stay there as long as you like? Also, how about food?

If you are planning to do many procedures at once, i think it's better you stay at the apartment above dr.Jung's clinic. Just in case you need the nurse/doc assistance, can just come down. It's US$50 per night. got internet access, tv, refrigerator.


Yes I think so.. Last time I stayed there for 10 days. Food, there are many restaurants/24 hour shops downstairs.

No worries =)

Um.. I'm not sure about how they make your tip less bulbous... perhaps remove cartilage or something? I didn't get alarplasty done.. only augmentation and lengthening. Sorry!

Where are you going for your surgery?

DMN,

Make sure you buy Sineech before going for your surgery ok?! It will help with the swelling and bruising =) I have the supplier's number. Let me know if you need it.

Hi ppl,

I'm in taipei now, just did my eyes n nose with Dr Chuang last sat and thought i will share my experience with everyone here. Dr Chuang is super bz man, his clinic is always filled with ppl. I'm 4days post op now n still swelling like crazy. I re-did my double eyelids, epi n eye lift to make the eyes look BIGGER :o hahaz 3 procedures so my eyes look damn scary now with all the diff colours of bruising! I took sineech n loads on vit c so I think it does helps alot in reducing the swelling cuz I did the full nose job too - implant,alar, tip lengthening. My whole face especially my cheeks is so puffy now. Is this suppose to be normal?? I mean i look like i need face lipo on my 'chubby' cheeks now :(
Ocean11, I got the same prob as u! Same thing asked for song hye gyo nose plus I even bring my own pics to show him so to make sure he get a clear pic of wat nose I want. Den scarli he said my face too round cannot take this type of high sharp nose.. sianz 1/2! And I dun think my face was even round at all, i got a sharp chin so called 'kua zi nian' so I wanted a sharp nose to look better! So Dr C was saying how this high n sharp nose will look weird on my face n a 'cute' one will suit me better.. I was quite disappointed cuz I'm oso scared if i insist on the sharp nose it will turn out unnatural.. so while we r still in the midst of discussing whether I should take this type of sharp nose.... DEN the nurse kept comin in to interrupt us sayin i spent too much time wif dr chuang so keep rushin him as there were other patients waitin for follow-ups.. quite pissed at dat nurse man.. Dr chuang din even grumble n still continue to answer my qns n dat stupid nurse keep interrupting n rush dr chuang to see his follow up patients as they've waited for a long time, den say i haven even start surgery shdnt spent so much time.. :x damn tulanz! And beforehand, Dr Chuang had already confirmed he will spare enough time for my consult n surgery! So dat bloody nurse was sayin i shd trust dr chuang skills n keep quoting herself as own example n keep advertising her own double eyelids just done by dr c so beautiful... come to think of it her looks make me wana pukez! Anyway so I din wana appear so kiasi since the nurse say until like dat.. so I just ended the consult there n proceed with the surgery.. but I did ask for a 'v' tip n to make my nose as similar to song hye gyo's one as he can since it cant be as sharp as hers. Now, after the bandage is removed, I can see a smaller alar, but bridge is too natural n tip is round n fat.. no 'v' tip :( I know it maybe still too earli to tell due to the swelling.. but the bridge does appear too natural for me now even with the swelling.. later on it will get even lower... plus I think the tip part is already fixed.... no chance of seeing a 'v' tip sudden growin out after the swelling goes down rite? I be seeing Dr C on sat to remove stitches so I will have to raise this prob to him then.. I'm dreading to see dat nurse cuz I'm sure she will come n interrupt again n say its because of my swelling or some other reasons. REally cannot stand her especially when she keeps advertising her ownself to everyone dat comes into the clinic.. yeah she's the one dat got the breast job done by dr chuang.. just feel she looks like hard selling dr chuang services like a marketing/sales person like those consultants in our beauty salons here.. I could be
wrong :-|
Anyway sorry for the long post n ranting here as I was really not prepared to expect this type of 'service' as everyone had good comments that the nurses were friendly.. well mayb to the guys onli larz. :P

haha.. eveybody ask for her nose.. but her nose really damn nice. close to perfect liao.. my face also very small! just don know why we don fit that nose? could it be they don know how to do it?!?! hahahhaha.. kidding..
but dear, u don expect sharp sharp tip hor.. only silicone can have that effect, but ear cartilage will be more natural.. Dr Jung said ppls cant tell u undergone nose job with ear cartilage.. so let see how..

nvm la.. i am sure ours also not bad la.. u took out ur splint already? if can don take out, it helps quite abit on swelling!
u took sincceh still swell so bad?

Come to think of it.. we got losta Made in Taiwan, Korea and Malaysia noses! when are we going to have a conference meeting for Asian Nose?? Must book suntec city conference hall den.. heheh.. :P
Made in Singapore a few only rite?
Anyone Made in Africa bor? hehe.. :lol:

Wow, this forum is really informative for those who will be going for cosmetic surgery. :)

Angeluv101, which surgery did u do first? eyes or nose? Sorry to say, but in my opinion, the nose surgery done by Dr Chuang doesn't seemed to be that impressive and doesn't seemed to have much significant change. ( from the pictures on his site )

Is Dr Jung better in changing a person's nose significantly than Dr Chuang?

hello!

I spend like the last week trying to finish reading all the pages but really couldnt so started around page 200 instead.

this is so inspirational, not to mention useful. most seem to do eyes and nose in here but has anyone done forehead implants? do people use goretex implants for those? i like the forehead of dawnyang, fiona xie and elva hsiao. But my forhead is rather low and narrow and i have slightly weird harilines. Is forehead implant able to correct that? and which are the recomended doctors for this procedures? besides dr kim from bk clinic. he seems likes a rude prude.

and angelluvl101, what you mean by V tip. got picture to show what you mean? and i went to look at song's pic, her nose not very high actually, like the girl acting as jinshun from the 7 o'clock show now has a higher nose. her nose considered low for koreans no?

Agree with you :-| But I already booked for Dr Chuang and paid airplane tickets.Guess I have no choice now :(
In my case,I reaally need to refine my bulbous tip,wherever it takes,even if my relatives will notice that change.
Anyway,I read this forum for a long time without participating and I would like to thank all of you guys for sharing you experiences,your advices,you fears and happiness m(_ _)m
I'll have my surgery on 14th June with Dr Chuang,if one of you will be in Taipei at the same time,please let me know (can't speak mandarin,just french,english and japanese :? )

hey!

are you french? or jap? that's like so cool. i think dr chuang has the skill just maybe not the guts. like someprevous forumer mention, he's the kind you have to say very clearly from the start and repeat a few times or else he will just do very natural for you.

i think it's going to be hard for you to be alone a t taiwan. it's such a chinese country. maybe you can pick up one of those chinese language books that helps you translate simpe phrases. will be much easier to navigate.
