Superman what's wrong with dr chuang? I havn't look at this forum for a while... I was gonna go to dr chuang for a bio-alkamid and fat grafting to booty.


Does medpor cheek augumentation give you a high cheekbone or something? Do you know anyone who have done it? I've always wanted a high cheekbone it gives more defination to your face.


I must correct what i said about ' reviews ' . what i actually read and saw is about dr chuang doing many surgeries a day which actually affects his judgment if you are happened to be his last patient.

I am not very sure is this how other " good " plastic surgeons practise, but i just felt slightly uncomfortable with that. especially when it comes to cheek augmentation which you really really dont wanna screw up =X haha

no offense to dr chuang really .... its purely my point of view ... but hey i might be wrong anyway ^^

P.S someone link me to cupidz profile kindly if you know his/her full nick ! thanks


About Dr Chuang's lack of precision and focus on his patients due to a packed schedule, I beg to differ. I've had 2 surgeries done with him before, the first time was in the morning. The revision surgery for my nose about half a year later was at night... And I was the last patient, had the operation done at 10+pm, almost to 11pm! :shock:

On the day of the revision surgery itself, I lay on the operation bed for more than 2 hours, not a pleasant experience I must say. Afterwhich, the swell and bruising was horrendous, making me paranoid about Dr Chuang performing surgery at sucha late time ending in less than satisfied work. However, been 2 months since and I've more or less recovered, except some numbness at the tip of my nose which I believe is not a big issue. I must say, the result is definitely better than surgery 1.

In my opinion, I believe Dr Chuang is a responsible doctor. If he has to perform surgery for you at the end of the day, he will definitely have the confidence to perform the surgery for you as good as those patients he performed for in the morning. Of course, I was just sharing on my personal experience and my opinions... :)

i agree he is a responsible doc. hence he may be abit more expensive but is ok for me. i still remember you are not quite happy with your 1st surgery and i think i rememeber asking to get back to him for free revision.. so i assumed your 2nd op is free as it is a revision..

Could you let me know how exactly he did it to make it deep set? Did he have to make incision and take out some fat and stuff

Yeah I've heard he makes soft boob jobs and with invisible scars. But it's so ex!! Can't remember what exactly it was but it was like so a lot ! Even more than good docs here in North america


jovinliu wrote:One thing i know, is that Dr Chuang's speciality is actually breast augmentation, but of course each person will have their own comments after surgery with the doc. For me, i did my eyelid revision with him, so far i like my eyes, very deep set looking because i told him i want to look non-chinese. Up to you to make your own judgement.

i am not sure what u mean by bad reviews. u can search the forumer cupidz face photo which dr chuang operated on. i think he did medpor



hey tanjhj .. i tried to search for her name and even go through some pages of each PS thread but still cannot find her post leh =/ .... can help me please ...

thanks !
:P :D :D :D :D


Dr chuang boobs surgery method cost around the same as in spore if u included the air tix and hotel fees. yes singapore boobs job is ex but for dr chaung, you can choose your own breast size and shape as u are awake during the surgery and you see for your self the entire procedures. while spore doc uses premolded breast implant.. that to me is worth the $, if compared to singapore rates..

doing augmentation rhinoplasty and tipplasty on mar 22 10 am so wanna ask some questions.. to clear some doubts before i ask dr pat abt it... ok so here we go, hope can get some help cos im quite confused..

tipplasty questions
1) does tipplasty raise the tip? is it possible to reshape the existing cartilage to become narrower and higher such that the tip is higher ( i.e. without grafting cartilage )

rhinoplasty questions
1) does augmentation rhinoplasty with silicone only raise the bridge? and not the tip? becos i heard that silicone actually Cannot be used to raise the tip, due to extrusion! ! if its L-shape then surely it raises the tip?!

2) how does a I-shape implant compare to L-shape?

how long did it take for you guys to see the final result?
i only got the tip done with septal cartilage and was wondering how long roughly it takes to see the final shape, i didnt bruise much at all with some swelling and its my 6th day postop....i got tip refinement with shaving down myy rasp i didnt do brridge augmentation.....


Hi, I am new to this forum and dont have a Pm function yet. I would like to find out if your surgery done is the same as what i had intended in mind. Which is a reduction in size of a bulbous nose, without any nose augmentation.

I have a big round nose that i want to improve on. Which doctor did u did your surgery with?

Thanks.

For your case, Forget about singapore docs, just go to the Taiwan or Korea Famous doctor. Singapore doc CMI in my opinion. just look at what the "best PS docs" did for fiona xie and bryan wong nose. look so fake..

For your case, forget about singapore and thai doctor. would suggest you go to taiwan or Korea. yours is consider quite a complex surgery thou it is just tiplasty. different ppl have need different operations methods, hence some may need more complex method to solve their bulbous nose

I just want a more defined nose.

Is he any good? I read previous abt. Yanhee not very good with nose.

Now for some failed Plastic Surgery. That is precisely why i dun recommend people got to JB PS saloon for PS thou they are cheaper than singapore. How you going to get Legal Compensation and the Medical Board to Regulate them. at least singapore, taiwan and korea has PS medical board and also The docs are fully Liable for the compensation whereas the JB PS saloon, the doc are just a employee....

Think before you wanna save some $..
