Even after doing her nose, she doesn't look good eek. I can't stand her leh, i like a girl with sass and i not those type who don't like people who are not all nice or sweet. Like i find xiaxue pretty real & i can understand dawn somewhat. But maia...*wrinkles my nose*

I advice you to seek different doctor consultants to know more about the different grades of silicon. :) I think they would give you the best advice and tell you more, as different doctor have different perference of silicon too.

Like say maybe you try seeking dr seah, M.H and email an overseas doctor to compare and contrast.

I think is pretty obvious that Maia did her nose, click the link to see:

yeah he told me too, but i told him i dont wanna stay so long in a foreign country, then he said the LEAST is 4 days but 7 days is RECOMMENDED. i guess it will be really bad for me since i'm not familiar with the country.

That's my main reason for not wanting to do surgery overseas. Travelling alone on vacation is ok, but if i am miserable, not having fun, missing the comforts of my home & so far away that going home is a hassle..i cannot take it.

what's wrong with my nose??

Postby shal0m » Fri, 31 Aug 2007 5:01 pm

Dear All "masters" in PS, HELP!!

I did rhinoplasty with "korean implant" at KALO on 09 Aug, till now my nose is still swollen..
Went back to remove stitch on 15/8, Ms Tay my nose healing very well, and the swelling should subside soon. But now is already more than 20 days, my nose, especially the bridge is still very big/ high, not sure if this is selling ( so long??) or they insert too big an implant??
I did an alarplasty 2 years ago in SG, my nose did not swell for so long leh...

Can anyone advise?? Already sleep propped up at night, and take "tian qi" as advised by Ms Tay

Now I am overseas and won't be back til 8 Sep :???:

I am feeling ok, no redness, no fever, wound inside nose is clean...what's wrong?? take so long for swelling to subside??

Revisional eyelids

Postby betty123456 » Sat, 01 Sep 2007 7:11 pm

I just had a revisional eyelids done in soeul and it is very disappointing. I was trying to correct the fold shape ( which was fine when i first got the non incisional method but as time goes by - i think due to aging the line was rather imbalanced so i decided to correct it ). Not only was it not corrected but this time the doc suggests to use incisional method and the fold is so deep , feels like there's an elastic band underneath my skin. It's been more than one month post op, scarring still bad, deep unnatural fold. I am Chinese, not sure if Korean docs don't understand chinese eyes or that i just have bad luck. Does anyone have any experiences to share whether things may get better?

betty,

just be patient.

This is normal. It is very common for the eyes to look too deep, too high, etc in the first month... especially if you are not in your 20s anymore and you got incisional.

mynose,

I did epi with Dr. Chuang. It only took 1 week to heal. It has been 4 months. I have no resulting scars from it. It did have tiny tiny little scar bumps that came and went at 1 month postop, but now, I don't have any of it...

For epi, you have the z-epi method, which most doctors don't do, but it results in no scarring. I think this is what Dr. Chuang did for me.

Other than that, there are some other ways where they cut and sew... but usually leaves very slight scarring.

well, i guess 4 days is the minimum, but since u want stitches off then i don't think can. stitches 6th day.. :) i told him it's ok, cos its better to remove it with a local surgeon(not ex at all) and thats definitely better than staying in a foreign country for another 2 days! (well, 2 days of hotel is more than stitches removal in spore).. :D

betty,

I'm in my early 20s but I experienced the same thing that you did at one month.

After I did the epi, it lowered my double eyelid, so when I was back in the States, I went to a doctor to raise my double eyelid. It was deep for about a month... now, it has been about a month and a half, and slowly, it is becoming less and less deep... Eyelid skin is extremely sensitive. It bloats up for a long time sometimes; this is what makes it look so deep and high.

Btw, dr. Chuang did want me to just do the epi with the double eyelid... but I opted not to.
