Well I think I’ve gone through all the questions. Now to finish, I tell you why my tip had collapsed.

Before I checked out from the hospital, Dr, Hsu explained to me how he operated my nose with some drawings. He said that actually when I had the L shape silicone implant, the small part of the silicone was a base to support my tip and make it more shaped. When Kim moved out the implant he didn’t put cartilage instead to support my tip, he had just put a small part of ear cartilage on the top of the tip to make it “more defined”
I like my new nose!

Dr. Hsu & recent surgeries

Postby kwelll » Fri, 04 Jan 2008 10:47 pm

A blessed & healthy New Year everyone!

Must admit i`ve lost touched with this list- must have been months now. Glad the forum is in order and running, again.

DMN: Am very pleased you have had the good fortune of meeting Dr Hsu in person and that the experience was rewarding for you. Not sure if you got my e-mail reply to yours before your surgery, hopefully it assured you Dr. Hsu continues to inspire me through his dedication; passion and love of his work & his unfailing care to his every patient. His work and experiences will only enrich him further for a better future.


Honesty through one's integrity and character, is its own reward. May all good things come to those who wait in good faith & honesty. Keep us updated on your recovery and you know I do not mind photos, at all. LOL

Best wishes

Kwelll

La vie en rose,

I'm confused...
Do you mean that your nose tip became flatter than your god made nose after Kim? notice that I didn't say Dr. ... lol...
If so, how did that happen from the doctor just putting ear cartilage there? Or had the L eroded your tip?

THANKS!!!

Going seoul for work next week, from the forum it seems like Dr Jung is recommended. Must confirm, Dr Jung = Jung Dong Hak hor? Don't wait i find the wrong doctor!

As for BK Clinic Dr Kim, don't think I will go to him.

Hmmm, any other recommendation?

dr.hsu seems like a good doctor.

i like the idea of using autologous material such as ear and rib cartilage. i have a silicone in my nose. although it did not give me any problem, im worried in the later years a foreign material may create unnecessary problems...

i believe autologous graft can have side effects too.. im interested to know more if anybody can share.

does he have a website, preferable english 1.. with information such as procedure, risks, price, pictures & blablabla?

i'll be glad if patients under him can share some rhino pictures of b4 and after too.

lastly, is there any good doctors using autologous material too?

thanks in advance. :)

Hi everyone,

I was thinking that I had finished with the questions,but I have received a lot of messages and emails since last night, I’ve answered to all of you, please check.

I am here to clarify 2 things:

1) I shared my bad experiences with the different implants,
Now if you have a L shape silicone implant, please don’t worry, the thing happened to me may not happened to you, especially if your nose was operated by a good doctor. I have a friend with silicone implant for 8 years now, she's still fine (reason why I said yes to silicone), and doesn't have intention to change the implant.
I am not here to close the silicone factories.

2) for the ones who have planed to go to BK clinic, go as scheduled, I am not here to stop you. As I said in one of my last posts, maybe Kim is not skillful with goretex implant and I did the wrong choice to go to him for this material. Maybe he is good for silicone implant or for eyes… ?

But one thing true is that “after sales service”
I like my new nose!

Maybe to avoid cheekbone and jaw reduction surgery in this clinic too. I read this complain in Taiwan during the recovery.

NEW!

Postby chicax » Sat, 05 Jan 2008 11:17 pm

Hi I'm new here.

I'm been surfing around with regards to news about plastic surgery which got me here. I'm only 19 this year but I'm contemplating on getting a nose surgery to correct my bulbous nose. The sight of my nose is revolting.

Would anybody suggest getting it done in Singapore or Korea because I see many posts singing praises about doing it in Korea. Does the cost differ a lot as well?

And Is the healing process a very traumatic one? Because I have read other posts which mention how phenomenal it can be.

Please advise on this. Thank you sooo much! :)

Hi Who,

One of the risk of the L shape silicone implant is that with the time because of the pressure, the nose will change the shape (and particularly the tip) when the implant will be removed. It can be fixed with the septal cartilage. Dr. Hsu has posted a case in his Web.
http://mypaper.pchome.com.tw/news/hsuyc ... centerFlag
I read some cases also in Fashionguide.

For my case sorry for being not clear. Right after the surgery with Kim my tip was less high and less pointy than the first surgery, but still look fine, it can “stand”
I like my new nose!
