- eye levator muscle surgery
- cheekbone shaving
- cheek liposuction OR buccal fat removal


Hi, as far as I know, Dr. Chuang charge a full nose job NT60,000, double eyelid + epicantoplasty NT25,000, cheekbone shaving alone will cost NT150,000 and cheek liposuction is NT50,000. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I'm not sure about eyebrow succus pad and eye levator muscle surgery. May I know what is that for? Good luck girl!

hi kalyn,how is your condition ?
my swelling i reducing 20% now.
i try to take hot towel on my face and put the warm packet too in my face.
the swelling is reduced,because of that.If you dont mind,you can do that too,to reduce your swelling too.Maybe if you do it frequently,i think the swelling will be decreased.


Hi, i apply warm packet on my face a few times a day too, sometimes I get really lazy. :lol: But the swelling seems to be the same, especially for the nose. Sigh.. Dr. Chuang said that my skin is thicker so it takes longer to heal. Talk bout thick skin! :o Glad to hear your swelling is reducing, you'll be staying here for 14 days ya? I think by then you'll loook beautiful already, don't worry okay?

You were asking bout IPL at Dr. Chuang for dark spot? I know Dr. Chuang does mole removal, but what dark spots are you referring to? Maybe you can ask Dr. himself instead of his nurses...

hey jase, i think you looked really good with the new nose! It looks high enough but yet naturally done. Makes me feel like getting well soon, it's my 6th day post op and my nose looks like a pig :shock:

Anyway, may i know what surgery did you do besides nose and chin?

Hey Kalyn,

Can i ask what Dr Chuang told you about buccal fat removal vs face lipo during your consultation? Also did the procedure hurt? i heard they put a needle in ur jaw area which sounds scary... Thankyou & good luck in ur recovery. Stay positive!

Dr Chuang told me that buccal fat removal is an old procedure that is not being widely done nowades (anyway, I was quite skeptical on this because I heard of people doing it still). He said that people who do buccal fat removal might be left with sunken cheeks so he recommended me to try with facial lipo first; specifically the lower cheeks. The area of fat he sucked is similar as the area of buccal fat removed.

I was on general anethesia so I don't know how did the procedure went or if its painful or not hee. The post op doesn't really hurt too, just swell, bruise and slight discomfort cus have to wear the "head-band" to wrap the head. I'm wearing it now as I type... :-|

I did

- malaplasty (Cheeks - big difference with this surgery)
- cheek lipo (no buccal fat removal - no idea if it worked either)
- botox on both sides (no idea if it worked either)
- chin implant medpor (wings not button)
- rhino - osteo,base alar reduction,gortex implant (I did think it was silicon since that was my first choice but Dr C explained to me why he eventually choose gortex)

Hey Kalyn,

Yeah I know its a big shock you gonna be looking at your nose changing each day. I was like that for the first 3 weeks then eventually I stopped looking. It will take at least 3 months for your nose to look natural. I mean it will look natural to other people within a month but yourself probably will notice until about 3 months. The first 1-2 weeks my bridge looked too high and my nose looked bloated but that was just because of the swelling.

I had to wear the headband also but after 2-3 weeks I couldnt wear it while sleeping so I stopped using it.

Hey,

I think you gonna see improvement in the tip and centre middle of your bridge which are the two parts which take the longest for the swelling to go down.

Your new nose definitely looks good tho :)

he has overnight stay for a 100 US a night, but you won't need that unless you are doing really serious surgeries like bone shaving. He also suggests that you don't unless you are doing serious procedures.


omg i thought it would be cheaper so as to save more $$. diao, he charges more than dejavu.

hi kalyn! thanks for the price breakdown girl.. it's very helpful! :) btw, are the prices u mentioned just for doing each procedure individually, or are they after a discount?

the eyebrow sulcus pad surgery is something i first heard about from cupid^n^starz, it gives the effect of a brow lift and makes your brow project further over your eyes to give it a more deepset, eurasian look :)

the eye levator muscle one is operating on the muscle itself so the eye can open bigger, and thus look bigger too.

i hope your swelling goes down soon, take care girl!

i've been reading ur blog, thanks very much for sharing your whole experience, i've learned alot from ur blog.. :) i hope u grow to like ur nose even more as the days go by!

u mentioned u did malaplasty and facial lipo.. is malaplasty = cheekbone shaving? did the cheek lipo make any diffference to ur face, ie make ur face narrower?

thanks :)
