Hi all,

I read through most pages of the 3 main PS threads here .... and noticed that most prefer dr su or dr chuang.

Personally, I've done double eyelids in singapore by dr w***. Sad to say, it was a failure and when i told him that both eyes are obviously uneven ( One upper lid is drooping while the other is normal ), he said " its normal, even some people are born with uneven eyes, no two sides of the face are the same " .

I mean... prior to the operation i maybe single eyelid, however both eyes were even, yet he told me that ridiculous statement.

I am thinking of redo-ing my eyes now as i am pretty depressed of the situation, however im not too sure if the taiwan docs mentioned in these few threads actually do revisional blepharoplasty. I really hope someone here could help me...

And based on my personal experience (im a guy), please do think twice before considering Dr Wxxx , i cant say too much about which dr W but he is oftenly mentioned in singapore expats and flowerpod.

Maybe you would like to send him a gentle reminder - he may have missed it. He is usually quick in responding, usually within 48 - 72 hours.

talked to the clerk, the first thing she asked me was: "are u a local or foreigner? " haha foreigners do come to sg for ps too??
she said for a rhinoplasty will most prob be ard 5000 to 6000 SGD.
now i heard that dr kao is experienced, im having second thoughts abt woffles wu.


Woffles Wu is famous for his invention of the Woffles Lift. You can rest assure that he is extremely qualified - qualifications are one thing, artistry is another. Before making your final decision, maybe looking into countries like Taiwan and Korea would be a good idea - it will give you a good comparison of price range and artistic skill. Good luck :)




i see, have resent! thanks a lot! :)

let me guess k, your crease is too high and it is still very obvious that you had your eyes cut?
If that's the case.. give it more time. Patience is REALLY the key to any successful plastic surgery. I think it can't be said enough, people don't give their bodies enough time to heal up and look good after a PS

To be honest cersepn, I wish that that is the case, because that means time will allow my crease to be natural and nice looking ( the latter being the main issue now .. =X ). the crease is low yet i have one eye with lesser fat and the other with more fats. The tightness in the eye is no longer present and the scar is nearly invisible already... so my eyes should have fully healed already.

In addition, Dr W's statement that everyone's face is not totally symmetrical made the whole thing worst. That statement is an act of defending and covering his failure. Overall his attitude and lack of responsibility made me fairly depressed and disappointed.

Though Dr W's statement is true, my eyes are pretty symmetrical to begin with ( that being same size shape ) . Now the shape of my eyes are totally different from one another, with one eye having a tired look while the other having a normal look.

Were you the one who posted your pic before and you said 'LOL i have no more swelling since i'm 5 months post op' ? and you had epi done too?
Dr W = Dr Wong from GE right? 5 months is really not enough to see the full effect, say alot of times already. And btw, other doctors will definitely offer you revision and you should not take that as a sign of approval that there's something wrong cos many of them just want your money.

No, im not the person that you are referring to. I did plain double eyelid. MAYBE 5 months is not enough, but just in case, I would really to source for docs who can do revisional dbl eyelid.. Thats why I am hoping forumers could help and not directly emailing doctors, which i understand that most don't give honest replies..

So yep, I really need some opinions and recommendations on docs who can do revisional.

Anyway cersepn, im not doing the rev so soon, most probably 6 months later .. due to some commitments

i can understand the feeling, my right crease was larger than the left for a while, and i was entertaining the tot of revision too... 2 yrs later, i can barely tell the diff... not that urs will be the same case, but let's hope urs is the same too :D

my jaw implants are too big too, at 6 mths i was convinced they were way too large, so i started sourcing for another surgeon just in case. at 9 mths, they have shrunk quite a bit again, but alas i still find them too big, so i will be revising them too

just carrying out the pt that sometimes it's too soon to tell, but also it doesn't hurt to start looking first, but maybe we shldn't place blame till everything has finalised :)

I think you should give it a little more time...as I'm sure you've been told, healing may take longer in some people. However, if you feel compelled to go for a revision surgery, perhaps you should try other countries like Malaysia, in which I've had good experiences with.

I guess it depends on your budget and whether you're willing to travel. As I've said in previous post, Malaysia is a good place.

No budget? Woffles Wu or Martin Huang? I think they should be pretty good with scar revision, plus they would probably have all the latest equipment needed.
