oz clinic

Postby uselesswhatever » Wed, 22 Jul 2009 7:41 pm

Hi,
I am considering doing surgery in korea, and oz clinic seems like a great option from some reviews that i have read. Has anyone been there? care to share your experience at useless_whatever@yahoo.com.sg? Is Dr park good?
Also, anyone done breast implants? Silicone cohesive gel implants, do they feel totally fake? or can they pass off as real?
And is it true that even if i had a nose job done for 5 years,there is a large impact on my nose (like a punch), will the implant will still shift?
any comments is greatly appreciated.

Hi all

I'm considering doing a double eyelid surgery. i've no idea what i should do, except finding a good and reliable doctor. i'd some idea on the few docs that i'd shortlisted with the help of this forum.

Dr Woffles Wu, Dr Martin Huang, Dr Wong @ Gleneagles, and Dr Colin Song from SGH.

Anyone have any past experience with any of them? Or any other docs to recommend? ><

Thank you.

Please contact me @ speed_taka@yahoo.com

Like many others here, I am delusional and hanker for physical beauty.

This year I will be 18 and have planned to go for a nose job, cheek implants and eye surgery after I finish poly- all at one go.
I wonder if anyone has done all together at once before?

In a year's time, I'll be going for jaw surgery, surgery alr booked at SGH- due to birth deformity, which involves pushing back the upper and lower jaw and inserting metal inside. I know many people's jaw are fine and I find it misfortunate that mine is abnormal.
Currently I am wearing braces(a must) which affects my speech and causes slight aching pains after tightening :(
I am afraid that my jaws will hurt in cold freezing countries.
Anyone can share with me their experience on this?
Cost +braces and teeth operation is about 15k for gov hospitals and Mt e is 20k

I have been to bangkok seoul and hk. To me hk is the most familiar place. In those TVB mags I read, the double eyelid procedure is only HK1500 onwards(300 sing) and 2000hk onwards for the nose. I was supposed to go there last june to try out the double eyelid "surgery?" but in the end I was too busy. My holiday was planned to be around 4 days with a friend, will it heal in a few days?
Has anyone tried it?

In meantime, after my braces are removed and jaw surgery done and still in pathetic resting mode (before uni) I plan to do fillers first before I raise enough money for the permanant ones. Heard that they only cost 500+++ a unit?

thailand is dangerous and hard to maneuovr myself around, plus in korea there was language barriers when i haggled clothing prices and it is huge I'll get lost. The tour guide mentioned that girls start going for double eyelid surgery at the age of 14! The girls I see are pretty normal- uniformed bangs and all plus excellent fair skin :)

Or can someone advise me how I should go about?


Does anyone know who is Dawn yang's plastic surgeon? She is absolutely gorgeous now.

Brought up in such a modern mad-cap environment like singapore I think you will agree that good looks are quite essential.

I don;t know how to identify from friend or foe...

Getting all done in one sitting?? I'd be afraid of the complications if I were you. Not to mention the pain and aftermath... You will be debating between loving it or absolutely despise it, and having all nose, cheek and eyes done together is risky business. Your entire face will be very swollen. Go slow..hon. Besides, you are so young, your face changes constantly.

Beauty doesn't always buy you success, and Dawn Yang looks a little ridiculous in real life. Her face shows traces of unnecessary PS.

I know this is totally cliche but confidence makes you beautiful. In the media industry, nothing repulses us more than insecure girls who doesn't know when to stop. They'll just be manipulated by the Big brother.

Go slow Kayti. Learn to like the new feature before taking another plunge. Safe yourself a sudden shock of "WTF, this is not what i expect it to be?? OMG, I can't reverse it..somebody friggin HELP!!!" and a series of legal battle.

Just my two cents.

For those of you who think you don't look good or aspire to look like a certain stars or celebs or yada yada...

Truth is you are seeing the success cases. Lots of unsuccessful ones are hiding away from the public. If a certain feature scarred you throughout your entire life, by all means have it done.

But if you think being immaculately plastic is going to bring you very far in your career, that is so not true.

My heart sank when I first saw these pic... they totally deserve to have their faces fixed more than some frivolous korean drama crap.

Again, my 2 cents. But you don't have to agree.

I would go to Yanhee or Bumrungrad instead of using a clinic, and you can find that most of the doctors from the clinics also work maybee 1 day a week in the hospital too.

Rhinoplasty in Yanhee

Postby smudges » Wed, 05 Aug 2009 9:37 pm

Hi all, I'm looking to get my nose fixed in January 5-17 period next year, hopefully under Dr Sukit. Is anyone heading there during that period? It will be nice to have some company while recovering :)

Hi,

I am new here, will be in bangkok next week to do teeth whitening and laser resurfacing. For laser resurfacing, still undecided between between yanhee or bumrungrad. Anyone who has done laser please do let me know how it went, your experiences appreciated :)

Also would like to travel to Taiwan to do epi as I already have double eyelids and would like to enhance it. Would be better if I can get this done in bangkok as well, does any forumers know of a thai eye surgeon who can do epi? Your kind advise needed.

Do pm me if anyone would like to meet up in bangkok next week. Will be there the whole of next week, was thinking of sharing accommodation.

I've had dbl surgery with Dr Martin Huang before.. half a year ago. stitching method.. it was a success and it's really natural :) But he can be a bit pricey.

hi everyone, i hope im not too late .. :)
I am 21 this year and will be going overseas to study soon... but I had a task I wanted to do before going abroad.

You see I had a mouth like Jolin Tsai... so u can actually imagine how big it is -__- I grew up with all the teasing from frens and closed ones and I dont want to be like this forever.. :( . i understand that lip reduction only reduces the thickness of our lips not the size of our mouth... I am really helpless now and I would like your personal opinions.. Do u have any frens who were in the shoe as i am? And what procedure she underwent..?

But angelababy`s mouth used to be big too.. and look at her now...WOW!! I wondered wth she did to her mouth...

have been reading this thread for a couple of months now and am seriously contemplating cheek implants. there doesn't seem to be much info about this particular procedure in this forum so i thought i'd ask :)
have emailed dr. chuang in taiwan regarding cheek augmentation, for which he recommends silicon because medpor implants give a "stronger" look that's more suitable for guys. he quoted me around sgd 4000.
have also consulted dr. wu in sg for which he charges $10,000, which is out of budget for me.
does anyone out there have any good surgeons in Asia to recommend for cheek implants? i would really prefer to do in locally..
many thanks!


Hi,

Like you i have research extensively for info and referal but cant find much. how have you done anything by now? Dr wu quoted me 10k too. almost shattered my dreams.

rhino in korea

Postby kermit83 » Wed, 02 Sep 2009 10:23 pm

Hey there,

this is my 1st post and i finally registered after backtracking this forum for a while. very informative and helpful!! :)

i want to go for rhinoplasty in korea as i will be in korea for 3-4 mths from dec for the language program. so far, bk clinic seems to be the best so far but from what i read in this forum, it was mentioned that there are many bad reviews. can elaborate or share why bk's bad?

i emailed dr kim and here's what he said:

"Your nose bridge is very low and the tip is too round and thick also it is short and upturned.
Bridge can be augmented by silicon implant.
Tip can be re-shaped by using septal cartilage, lengthening, augmentation, and re-shaping.
Also I can remove thick tissues or excess fat on the tip as well as other procedures.
It may cost around 4000USD, but the price may vary after the face to face consultation with me."

guess it's going to cost more. anyone's gone for consultation with them before? how much will consultation fees be?

and any other better recommendations?

And does anyone want to go in dec together for PS? we can stay together before i move in to the boarding house and we'll have company!

:)
looking forward to fly
