Has anyone actually had any surgery by him and would be too happy to share your success story with us? Pity his website is in mandarine without any photos of his work (due to privacy reasons?). I still believe a picture speaks a thousand words.who wrote:kalyn,
If your nose has a silicone implant, the nose splint serves no purpose.
The silicone will not need to stabilize in shape (silicone stays in the same shape regar... although patients need to sleep on their backs for two weeks so it stabilizes at the correct position.
yea... I got an L... and I can only see flesh up my nose... are you sure it is silicone? If so, yea... go get it repositioned!
oh, and I wanted to clarify the characteristics of silicone. It should not change the color of your nose. There are different grades of silicone. It should never be obvious after a few years. If this happens, it is due to low quality silicone, wrong size selectment of silicone, or bad placement.
Dr. Chuang told me that if your original bridge is narrow, generally, you can only add 3 mm with silicone. If it is wider than 5, and even wider 7. If you want a whole lot of increase but nose bridge is too narrow, MUST use goretex, according to Dr. Chuang. Or else down the road, after some years, implant will be obvious under some lights.
Also L implant should be placed under the cartilage, this reduces chance of mobility down the road. Mobility and extrusion (with asians) is almost always due to the skill of the surgeon.
L implant also does not make sharp sharp nose. I've seen before and after pics of L from Dr. Chuang. It does not necessarily mean sharp sharp nose. Besides, sharp sharp nose actually ages a face.
After 3 months, you can move nose tip side to side, but piggy nose with L silicone will cause a slight painful sensation.
Basically, silicone should last forever without looking obvious or change color overtime if the silicone size, grade and placement is correct.
