hadnt wanted to post but i thought i should out of fairness to dr. jung and his patients alike.
as some of you may rem, i had my rhinoplasty with dr. jung about 5 mths ago (8th aug being 5 exactly!). first, i have NO connections with dr. jung etc, and NOT korean.
i am singaporean chinese, and i dont think its true dr. jung only reserves high and straight noses for korean actresses/modelsetc, coz one of the first thing he asked me if i want my nose to be like the actresses etc, thin, sharp tall coz he wanted a song hye kyo nose for me.
i am pretty strange i guess,....coz i absolutely didnt want it. i wanted low and not too sharp, natural, and he gave me exactly that!
granted, first few mths were worse than hell, coz i desweel EXTREMELY slowly...but now approaching 5 mths, i can see y his patients have so much praise for him,! and it can ony get better! not only that, i have had modelling/ commercial contracts thrown in my way, and though it may be psychological, i feel that the nose does play a part!
so while its true that dr. jung can be conservative, and give similar type noses to his patients, if u look at his patients portfolio in his office (i looked a quite a lot), they come in many different shapes/sizes! i have seen his real life patients as well, and yes, while 1/10 of his patients may be upset (tts a very gd. ratio for almost any surgeon)the rest have such beautiful noses that whenever i get upset abt mine, i try to think of them!
anyway, i m returning mid next mth for PROB. more alarplasty, coz the first time i told him to be conservative with mine.
hope this post helps any1 considering rhinoplasty, be it with dr. jung or someone else!
Yes, I do agree with you that Dr Jung does not restrict a certain type of nose size or shape to a certain class of people - I do find it odd if this was indeed the case.
Well, am not sure how you got the 1/10 ratio but while I was there (10days), I have spoken with 3-4 patients and all happened to be revision cases, and the one girl I wrote about was her 3rd time. It is also documented (on his website) that Dr Jung has had a few cases where he had to refund the op fees completely because it was not properly executed i.e. (uneven bridge) Hence, I cannot put a figure to what is being discussd its not fair or right, but I can only speak for myself here.
I have presented him with photos of the type of nose I would like and he knew exactly what I wanted to correct. He agreed and told me it is not impossible - now if you had asked for a strong straight bridge (with illustrations) and yet it turned out otherwise (photos are self explainatory) with uneven bridge contour, what does one do ? I look at myself daily and try to smile oh boy ... I could not smile the way i used to because the nose restricts a full smile (if you know what i mean) I look tight. For a start, am waiting patiently for the one month mark, and I will write to Dr Jung with a report plus photos so he can see the result of his work. I have nothing against him just that what was communicated did not materialise. I seriously doubt the bridge has anything to do with swelling because 85% of it has subsided (I do feel and take photos to check).
I just feel sorry for the trauma inside my nose thats all. Its not even the money spent, effort and time ... but the basic expectation was never there to begin with. I saved my nasal tip skin but lost the rest by the same token.
