I think even 3 months on I'm still a bit nervous in seeing people in case they say something but just normal friends dont even seem to notice. The first 1-2 months I didnt really want to see anyone and it was hard for me to face anyone I didnt trust.
botox on the jaw was my first time yes.
Yeah you going to get most of the swelling in the fat-lipo in your lower cheeks it should graudally go down slowly in terms of swelling. I wore the headband on the loosest setting but it still felt painful and I would only be able to sleep for 3-4 hours before I had to take it off for awhile. You could do what I did which was when I'm watching tv or doing nothing I would put my hands on my face to push my face into the v-shape. Also having warm towel on the face is good but not too hot.
Yeah your bridge will keep going down my bridge looked alien also looking back at the photos in the first couple of weeks.
Hope you heal quickly and just make sure you do some walking each day, get fresh air etc... since it helps with the healing.
Wow, you're sure one brave man! I'm already feeling like living hell with four procedures done, and coincidentally, we had 3 similar procedures
I heard that Malaplasty(cheekbone shaving) is really painful, may I know how long did it took for you to look normal(as in to be able to face the public and meet friends)?
For botox on jaw, is this your first time? If it is, I heard we gotta wait for a few months, and even that, the results will be subtle. The difference will only be significant after a few jabs.
I'm now very concerned about my face lipo-ed. The fats/swell on my face seems to be at my lower cheeks. Is this normal for you too? I'm afraid the fats will "xia-chui", if you know what I mean.
Can I ask did you wear the headband very tight or just nice? Cus when I wear it very tight, my jaw hurts after a long while, but when I wear it just nice, it doesn't seem to help to push the fats up. *faints*
Yes yes, my bridge looked really high and wide, I feel like an alien!! Dr. Chuang told me it's still swelling and it will decrease in height and size. Sigh, hopefully. I just can't wait to see the final results. Living in fear to go public now everyday...
only problem i have now is the sides still look fat, cos the chin only managed to improve the look from the front, so thinking of jaw implant. but after seeing imjase, i'm thinking shld i do bone shaving also? cos i dun want too square, want a sharp face like wang lee hom
If you do bone shaving it will give you a sharper face from the front and side profiles. It will make your face longer if thats the type of result you want.
Yes I still do have numbness pain in my chin and nose still now after 3 months.
