I know this is going to sound quite hypocritical of me because I am a teen myself considering getting surgery done, but I think you should think twice about getting surgery before committing to it.

The feminine look is quite the in look these days, think along the lines of kpop stars! Being a pretty boy is not a bad thing, and yes, there are A LOT of girls out there who'd go crazy for that look.

I believe getting PS done is quite a drastic and pivotal decision (no matter how invasive or not), moreover you are contemplating doing it abroad. And I think the main reason for getting something like that done should be because we want to do it for our OWN selves. Not for other people nor some hot girl who you think will look your way after getting this done.

Being teased or labelled is part and parcel of being a teen... Hell, its part and parcel of Life! The most important thing is that we do not let the negative get to us and drive us to do things like... well... this. I believe if we remain composed, it shows that we are better than that.

I'm not here to judge because I do not know who you are or how long you have been tormented by being labelled. But maybe through reading this, putting things in a different light, might help you consider the pros and cons of getting PS.

If you still intend to go ahead with surgery, I wish you all the best. Just bear in mind that a beautiful personality and a good heart shines brighter than any slim pointy nose ever can.


I really appreciate your reply : ) Have to agree the Kpop flowerboy look is quite the in thing now , but sadly my feminine looks are not anywhere near appealing , and yes i have considered PS for quite sometime now. The pros and the cons etc. I tried to remain composed as a teen and i agree its a part of growing up .. but society's way of labeling me is just too much for me to handle . sigh , i feel so pathetic . It was a sudden change in my life after . Secondary school period , where i was still accepted and appreciated , it slowly build up till it was unbearable when i entered poly . I cannot seem to enjoy the simple things in life anymore. Things like Eating outside with my friends without someone staring at me and questioning my gender.

I really want to thank you for your reply . It somehow made me feel better.I am ready for this drastic change in my life. :) Can see that you are getting PS done too. All the best to you too !

Hi Daniel111,

You are still quite young currently at 18 years old n i think you should not think about plastic surgery at the moment.

Cos i have seen alot of young guys who may have quite feminine features and are quite small size when they are younger like around your age. However through the years, their facial structures change quite a bit and they have more angular jaws, more muscular bodies, etc when they get older.

So i think you should wait for sometime first, you never know :)

Hope this helps. Cheers.

Hi regretful28,

May i check which local surgeon did you go to? If it is not convenient to mention his name, could you provide the Name Initials? Cos i may know of friends who have gone to him and perhaps could share with you some info. Also, when did you do your rhinoplasty?

Actually why dont you wait for sometime first before you do any revision? just like what Dr Hsu and Dr Kao advised you to wait for 6 months. And it is correct that you should wait for sometime first. Cos if this is your 1st time doing nose surgery, firstly it would be very swollen compared to a revision in general. So what you see now is very likely Not the nose you would see eventually after All the swelling is gone. And for the swelling to be totally gone for nose, it takes around 6 months at least to a year to Totally recover cos there is alot of residual swelling inside.

And if you try to do a revision now or anytime too soon, it may make matters worse for your nose cos the swelling is not even halfway gone yet and you are doing a revision already. So my advice is pls dont do it too soon.

Are you having a silicone implant with ear cartilage? Actually alot of surgeons use ear cartilage n i have seen some people with ear cartilage at the tip and the noses look quite nice. Understand the ear cartilage would absorp and "shrink" down the road just like rib cartilage. However, the other thing about putting ear cartilage @ the tip, understand that sometimes some surgeons did not put the ear cartilage properly or firmly at the tip area and so what happens later is the ear cartilage slides to the side of the implant making the nose look a bit bigger from the front view.

Dont feel lousy about it now, i can empathise what you are feeling as Im sharing some of the experiences that i have gone through. Give it some times first and meanwhile, dont do any revision yet till at least after 6 months.

Hope this helps. :)

Cheers.

Hi babyangel,

Thanks for the advise. Well, actually I knew my nose failed even if the swelling still there. And it has been confirmed by Dr. Kao & Dr. Jung after they seen my photo. I did my nose in Malaysia, yeah....it was the biggest mistake ever. I thought it should be a simple job, so I just went for a cheaper alternative, since I always need to tavel to Malaysia for work. I blamed myself for taking things too lightly and never think of the consequences. I am in need for a revision because my wedding is around the corner, initially plan to have a more refined nose for my wedding. But it turned up that I have to look the ugliest in my entire life for my wedding. Can you imagine how devastated I am?

I did my nose with only ear cartilage for the bridge and the tip. No silicon implant, which I think was a mistake as well. Because silicon implant can just take out if there is rejection or if you are unhappy with it. But ear cartilage cannot and there is no way for me to get back my old nose. I just need a really good doctor for my revision now. After reading all the post, I got more confused as in which doctor to go, what sort of material to use. If I use my the other ear cartilage for revision, I will not have any more cartilage left for revision if there is a need to, what will happens then?

I have bulbous nose (fleshy) with large nostrils and hanging nose wings...
Can someone pls recommend a surgeon that will be best at helping me correct these problems?
I don't need to have higher nose bridge or sharper nose...I just want my nose to be smaller and more proportionate to my face, and want my nose not to appear so large when i smile.

Thank you

Will someone tell me if it is possible to take out the ear cartilage fully from the nose, and if my nose will return to my old nose if I take it out as I do not wish to replace with anything else. Or my nose shape will change or it will be very complicated to take out the ear cartilage fully after it is bond with the skin?? I don't seem to find any information on the internet that someone with full ear cartilage nose job removing it.


Hi Regretful, was reading your thread. I know of someone in bangkok who is very good with noses. It was recommended by my eye doctor. His daughter went for PS in singapore and had her nose done, unfortunately after some years the plastic was protruding. So he send her to his fren in bangkok. I went to see her, she is also a doctor but in aesthetic... she very pretty and her nose perfect. I oso went to BBK to see the doc that did her nose, for consult, he explained to me he does alot for harelip children and teach in japan... as we were talking a phone call came and after hung up he told me that was from singapore the PS doc who did the nose of the eye doc's daughter... we were laughing and he also show me a big jar of plastic he took out from the patients that went to him to redo... if you are keen I can give you his contact... :)

Don't want to name names but just to let u know, my doctor'c clinic is located in Mt E.
I will rather go Thailand than Malaysia and my frd had an eye and nose job there and it's great.
If cost and language is not a problem, I will definately recommend Korea as the place for plastic surgery.
I seriously regret not having it done there...I will definately not have any plastic surgery done in Singapore ever again!!!

    True, this is true the Mt elizabeth singapore there are no experience


      I totally agree with you , in singapore they really got no experience. i has lipo done in mt E and also in paragon. need so many revisions and still the result suck and not even. After a few times of entertaining you they stop and start to ignore u. Both clinics behave the same. Luckily it is not my face , body I can still cover with clothes.

      Hi regretful28,

      If you only have ear cartilage in your nose n no implants at all n no other work done (such as sawing the bridge, etc), from what i understand, the surgeon can just remove your ear cartilage, thats all n you shud get back your original nose. Unless the surgeon who did your nose had done other works too during the surgery.

      And i think the surgeon might be able to use back those ear cartilage if needed for your revision so you need not harvest new ear cartilage again.

      I think Dr Kao is good. What advice did he have for your nose after seeing your pics?
