a ala reduction and nose tip sharpening, can do within bridge augmentation...

Hi Rabbit,

This is exactly what I want to do to my nose too! Although I would like to heighten my nose bridge as well, but I am worried that it will change my appearance too much. My family are dead against it. :(

Thought of consulting Harry Fok or Colin Song for ala reduction. But now really at a loss. Would you know how long it takes to recover for ala reduction? I can only take at most 2 days off from work. Immediately after the operation, will the doctor cover our nose with some kind of bandage or support?

TIA!

hi catalyst, i'm afraid that i cant do with you (though i'd love to :)) because i am still schooling and my exams will only end at end nov.. den i will start working and saving up for my surgery trip.. if i can, i'd have borrowed from the bank or something cos i'm really quite paranoid about going alone.. but the interest will be too high AND i'm too young AND i won't be able to find a guarantor anyway. furthermore, as my parents are super against it, i cant possibly borrow from them too! so, i just have to keep saving and i've calculated tat i probably have enough by next year may, where my hols will start again.. do u tink that u can wait that long??? u can email me at astar_30@hotmail.com if u want to! :D

Hi Catalyst,

If you are going to Yanhee, how many days do you plan to go?
I wish my boyfriend can be more supportive of my decision and not keep using pressure from my family on me. I know he meant well but i have been thinking about a nose surgery for the past 3 years. :(

Hi kopi Princess,

I've actually done ala reduction before but the result was no good, thus want to redo.

For ala, it's on local anesthesia so thru out the ops, you are aware. Right after the ops, you can take cab go home already.
After 5 days, you will need to go back to the clinic to remove stitches. After stitches are removed, it will only be some redness (really quite red), looks like infection (I mean that kind of red, not really infection), from far people won't be able to tell you've just did plastic surgery. In 3 wks, it will look normal, provided if your stitches were done properly and the scar heals up well, otherwise, it would be like me, 2 small row of scar at the corner of my nostril!

Hi Broke,

If you are going to Korea for consultation, you may want to consider Dr. Jung Dong Hak. From the web search that I did, he sounds famous, have live ops and workshop for other plastic surgeon from China and Taiwan etc. to learn from him. I'm sure there's other good doctor out there in Korea but so far his web-site is the only one I saw with English and very very properly documented before and after photos. www.nose.co.kr

However, the price is a bit step, US$5,000 for ops only. For your info pls.

Rdgs,
Rabbit

Hi Catalyst,

Just to clarify, the first post op check up may be is the 3rd day, then the 5th day, I can't remember liao, but anyway, stay there for a week or 1.5 week will be good.

Mmm... I hope you have make up your mind to go for the ops is for yourself, and not some emotional decision cos the result, good or bad, is for you (not your boy friend), and would be something for a life time, you better think twice. Take care!

Rdgs,
Rabbit
