Hi!

I was on a business trip to Taipei hence my nose is "proudly sponsored" by my company, hee hee! I stayed in Hilton Hotel (i think call Caesar Park Hotel now), it's $240 per night. I stayed for 11 nights so i got a upgrade to a executive suite... nice! So, i got a new nose, accomodation and transportation paid for, and received allowance everyday. Good deal! :D opps, cannot let me boss hear this...

Honestly i was considering Yan Hee for rhinoplasty initially, but because i was travelling so frequently to Taipei and there's so many plastic surgery clinics around, I thought why not I do it in Taipei instead? I consulted 3 doctors, and did it immediately after the consultation with the last doctor I went to. Was quite scared, but i still braved myself and went ahead. Remember in your head: 30mins of pain (if any) and fear, a lifetime of benefit! Once the sedative injection was injected into me, ohhhh... i feel i can conquer anything and I can join Fear Factor! hee hee hee... ok ok jokes aside, it's not really sedative injection, it's just some injection to calm me down. I am still sober during the operation, but i think i fell asleep at certain points because my memory is like bites and pieces. I just remembered the doctor injecting anesthetic on to my nose (honestly, it's quite painful on the nose tip because bearable!), then something clipped my nostril, then the doctor meddle meddle something, then he said "ok! done!" it seems just like 2 minutes to me! I remembered i said "huh? so fast?!" and the doctor said "yah!". After that the nurse told me she needs to apply cold compression on my nose, and again, i think i fell asleep. It seems as if the cold pack was on my nose for 5mins, but when i asked my friend who went with me, she said i was inside the operation room for around 45mins to an hour.

Gals/guys who are considering doing rhinoplasty, remember that Jovin and ocean11 and so many others did it, and none of us complained about very painful operation or whatsoever! So far I did lasik, botox on my jawline, rhinoplasty and eyebrow embroidery. I personally didn't regret doing any of them. You can say that i am lucky that none of these goes wrong, yes i do agree with that statement, but it really gave me so much more confidence and compliments. Say that I am vain I don't care, because who's not? I was fat, nerdy and ugly in primary and secondary school, nobody gives a damn about me. So, these years I changed my style, appearance, attitude, lost weight and got help from plastic surgeries, and I admit there are so many occasions where situations were favourable to me because of my looks. Work-wise, getting help from friends and people, getting in to pubs for free without paying cover charge, getting attention from waiters and better service etc. But of course, you have to be nice to other people, before you expect to get better treatments back.

I remembered reading a post earlier on, somebody said beauty is just superficial and we should be happy with what we are and how we look. Just like going to hair stylists requesting for a trendy haircut or a change of hairstyle to enhance your appearance, plastic surgeries are just 1 step further. They are not to change you into a totally different looking person, but instead to enhance your existing features. I really wonder how happy you can be seeing yourself in the mirror everyday wondering how much better you will look with double eyelids, sharper nose or making modification to a certain part of your face. How many of us breathe in hard, tuck in your tummy as much as you can and look at your reflection thinking "damn! i will look so much better losing another few kilos!" How many of us looked at our flabby tummy and smile to ourselves "I am happy because I have enough to eat." At the end of the day, the purpose of the surgery is to make YOURSELF happy, not make other people happy. Some things in this world are not changeable, but some can. Now it's your own decision whether or not you want to take this step. Again, going for a plastic surgery or not is your very own decision, not mine, not your friend's nor hubby's. Yes I also agree that you might get addicted and will never be satisfied with what you have, but again, this depends on individual and cannot be controlled by anyone but you. If before surgery you are not happy, after surgery you are also not satisfied, nothing in this world is going to make you happy. The problem lies in your head, not your face.

The first feeling you gave me is, you are not mature enough to undergo a plastic surgery.

There are many plastic surgeons in Singapore, you can go to any good ones for consultation to ask how the doctor can help to reverse the badly done operation. So far I haven't done any cosmetic surgery in Singapore hence i can't recommend. Of course Woffles Wu and Martin Huang are famous, but you must be prepared for their high price if you are to engage their service.

Anyone have recommendation for Kevin?

Dear All,

I have very dark circles which are worsen by the eye bags hanging below my eyes. My colleagues and friends said I look like panda every day, and it just burns me up. I consulted 2 doctors in Malaysia, just wondering anybody have fantastic results from them, or could suggest some other doctors?

Dr Benjamin George (Gleneagles Hospital & private clinic in KL city)
Dr George Varughese (Glenegles Hospital & private clinic in Bangsar)

Dr Benjamin George tells me I have no eye bags, just loose skin and extra muscle, wherelse Dr George Varughese tells me that I have fat (eye bags) and skin, no lose muscle. Both say a different thing, I don't know who to trust. Both suggests different procedures as well, which definitely adds to the confusion.

With Dr Benjamin George, the consultation was quick, he did not explain much and seem to be in hurry. He charged for RM50 per consultation, but since I asked many questions, he charged RM100 for my consultaion. How can this be? I mean, naturally patient who wants to have their appearance fixed would want to know every option possible and the risks involved. With Dr George Varughese, he charges RM100 as well, but I could take even up to 1 hour to ask any questions I like, as long as I feel comfortable.

I really do not want to solve a problem, yet to create another problem in the end. If anybody has any comments and suggestions, please please do respond to me.
Thanks!

May

Can consult doctor Yeap.

Eye surgery is not reversible. Unless it is stitching method. ( I think)

Both are equal bad.

Of course very pain. Cannot move.
That's why I have to be very carefully this time when choosing the doctor.
