hey Kwell,

sorry to hear about your situation. I havent gone through it yet, so I have no real life experience to tell you.

But I hope things turn out well eventually for you. :)

Please keep us updated too...
New nose please~

yes, i do agree there is alwaz that minority whom surgeries dont turn out quite as well as expected...

i'm really sorry for wat you had and are still going thru..
erm..if its any help, i m returning to dr. jung in mid aug as mentioned, and should you need me to ask anything, pls feel free to lemme noe k?
take care!


Thanks Shermaine ... for all you know, we might end up on the same plane to Dr Jung's office for the same procedure(s)! LOL I had better book my ticket now for a good seat. FYI, i might even want to change to silicone because I feel that it is an excellent alloplast that gives strong support or building up an area. When done properly, it can still give aesthetically pleasing result just that the tip must be covered with a piece of cartilage or fats. I find Gortex too soft in this respect and removal is difficult with time as opposed to silicone.

Am beginning to be more convinced my nose is too natural and am not used to the "softer" appearance...maybe its a case of overly refined nose? IF you have seen my previous nose, you`ll appreciate what I mean here.

You call me dear.. make me wanna blush! :oops:

hahaha...

I'm definately doing nose and eyes.. Nose with Chuang, eyes yet decided between Chuang or Jong. Both in Taiwan.. but I dont know if it would be troublesome running to and fro these two docs.

Especially if I'm suitable to do Epi, I'd like to do it with Chuang... and yet double eyelids prefer Jong. LOL :lol:

Would be losing some weight to see if my face shape betters (though I do remember during my best weight, I was still....with round face)

If its not better, then will be considering options like the bone works or botox or face lipo..

BUT... I realised that face lipo DOESNT seem to give great results, just .. very subtle! I think I need more than subtle.
And I wont do buccal fats removal as it may make me look haggard in later years. :cry:

So..... share with me your thoughts and advises if you please. I would appreciate it :wink:

kwell, I am quite skinny. Somehow though I have never really had a sharp jawline (skin? genetics?). I am having the genio to add length and maybe if later on if need be I might go for implant to change shape. Do you have an implant? Can you suggest a good surgeon?

I agree with you about photos. It is the whole 2-D, 3-D thing. I think sometimes I look better in photos but my nose looks more asymmetric in pics! Very annoying. I don't know whether to trust the mirror image or my photos for that...

This is the specific type of cheeks/nose/chin that I like. I know I can only work with my own bone structure but I wonder how close to this it is possible..

Look at number 44. NATE. This is the one

Hang on ... let me get my facts right... I assume you are a MALE ? If so, welcome cos it seems there are only 1-2 males here !!! but lovely to chat with the ladies on PS ...(HAHA... can u imagine?? cos am like darn vain!!!)

Firstly, I have not seen your actual face structure but judging from no.44 - there is alot to work on! This is the STRAIGHT bridge that I was referring to guys!!! although I wouldnt want it of such extreme height as I know my limits. Love the chin and cheekbones are just a tad over the top. Unless you have a pair of deepset eyes and bony structure on your face, all these wont work out. You must either have it ALL or nothing otherwise it is not harmonic. Remember, TRIANGLE OF BEAUTY.

If you can send me photos of your eyes and nose or whateve separately (so I cannot figure out your look), then I would be able to help you because am pretty interested in nose enhancement. Eye jobs are much easier . Wait, why not do them in SG?

Hi Kwell, yeah, I am male. And I have a very pointy nose (especially from profile, very high bridge but I have a hump which needs to be broken and rasped (thats what the surgeons say) to smoothen. I have been on countless consults but still unable to decide as I feel most surgeons don't have a strong enough before and after pics catalogue. And I have noticed that only a few surgeons asthetic sense I share with - ultimately the most important thing. I am getting PS to be more attractive in my eyes and not for some surgeon to feel I have improved...and admire at their own work!

I have okay eyes but no cheeks/chin.

Good ... at least you want what you want which is the first and important step. May i know what race are you?

Sounds like your bridge needs to be smoothed out and hump removed. Dont think you need any more augmentation. That should be relatively straightforward - OPEN rhinoplasty.

Bad news is over here, most surgeons do not keep track of before and after and even if they do, they are usually private and confidential - so no good. Who have you consulted and what are your observations about each of them so far. Its important to know how YOU feel about the individual because that the first step to a successful relationship - good rapport! Those that are too quick to assess or dun give you their 100% attention, you should really move on and cease any further negotiations with them.

Did you want the procedures done locally or overseas? Sorry, where are you based?

Chin augmentation is a straightforward procedure with mimium swelling and bruising, but the result is quite evident 3 days post op. As I dont know the angle between your upper lip to your the base of yur chin, I wont be able to tell you how much you can enlarge or degree of receding chin you might have.

Cheeks even simplier - fats or injectable fillers. If you want a large area covered, I would go for fats grafting. I know of someone who does this quite well.
