Hi .... Sorry, am sure this is posted somewhere, I'm a newbie to this section. Am contemplating of doing upper eyelid and some armpit fat.

Appreciate your advice from those who have done either one of these surgery with KALO recently:

1) How much does each cost approx?

2) Period of stay or healing (swelling disappears)?

3) Any recommendation on preferred doctor?

4) What is KALO's address & full contact?

5) Need directions there, any hotel or landmark?

You may email me at ezlife@singapore.com

Thanks & cheers

KALO's Doctors are not registered PS in Malaysia.

You can't find their clinic here

[/url]http://www.cosmeticsurgeryandbeauty.com/category/directory/malaysian-plastic-surgeons[url]

This magazine is the Bible of PS for Malaysians. Alot of people considering PS read this magazine. KALO never advertises in this magazine, their clinic is not listed on their directory section. KALO only advertises in those Chinese fashion magazines like FongChai or JieMei.

They are also not a member from MAPACS

[/url]http://mapacs.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=18&Itemid=14[url]

So, if anybody rest assure you about their doctor's credentials because they were shown their certificate, you know what is going on.

ok, I did more search. this is what i found:

from the Malaysia Medical Council, the only dr registered under KALO COSMETIC SURGERY SDN BHD is Yap Chung Mui

http://mmc.gov.my/v1/index.php?option=c ... &Itemid=50

http://mmc.gov.my/v1/searchmmc/main_sea ... l&id=12465

This is the "face" KALO puts on their print advertisement. But the only qualification registered is a MBBS degree from UNSW. Also, he joined KALO only from 2006. And yenyen said KALO has been operating for 10 years? Before him, who was performing the surgery?

Also on many other places his title includes FRCS(Edin), for example:

CONSULTANT PLASTIC & COSMETIC SURGERY CONSULTANT RADIOLOGY
DR. YAP CHUNG MUI

MBBS (UNSW) FRCS (Edin) TEL: +603 4043 4900 (Outpatient unit -by appointment)

(scource: http://www.dsh.com.my/content.php?lang= ... 6&item=122)

so I did a search on the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh website. But his name could not be found.

http://www.rcsed.ac.uk/site/560/Desktop ... ?tabid=560

So this is the question I want to ask yenyen06, if the surgeon (Dr Song, you said?) did show you his certificates before he performed surgeries on you, WHICH certificates he showed you and issued from WHICH COUNTRY.

Whatever you said on all these forums are considered false and misleading representation. So you might want to ask the friend of your who works in Allen & Gledhill whether you will be legally liable or not should those to head your advice to have cosmetic procedures at KALO decided to take actions against you.

On another note, please, really check the credentials of the doctor who WILL BE PERFORMING the surgery for you. There are clinics in Malaysia where they will have a puppet certified PS on the board but have someone else to perform the surgery on you. The Malay lady who went for tummytuck early last year at Klang last year died after months of coma. The procedure was performed by a orthopaedic surgeon. Also, a few weeks ago, another Malay lady died of heart complication during a tummy tuck surgery at Jln Ampang. Report stated that that was her 7th surgery in 7 months.

As I said, SKN does not perform cosmetic surgeries. They only do non-invasive stuff. Inject here and dissolve there. It is not what we are talking about.

I went to Kalo... now i have over blanching(over stretched) skin(at the nose tip) aft the nose implant, will need to do a revision when i return from US. this over stretching of skin has left my nose tip a little faint white color. the implant is too big for me. so for ppl with thin skin, u will hv to take note of that.
those drs i spoke to at Kalo, i din look at their certs. i went there cos prices were attractive.

I found this via google:

"In general nasal augmentation is a very safe procedure. Typically, the nasal implant surgeries that carry a higher risk for complications are revision surgeries. It is not unusual to encounter people in such circumstance who have had a history of multiple nasal surgeries. In these instances the circulation to the nasal skin is sub-optimal, thus there is a higher chance for implant extrusion or displacement, infection, skin breakdown, and scarring. The best way of minimizing complications with nasal implant surgery is to have realistic expectations, use autologous grafts when feasible, and to seek a plastic surgeon who has had adequate experience in nasal implant surgery."

Yen...u noe there's this person who had very sharp nose implant at the tip...tell him to get revision. *yen, ur gal still put the dog i bought for her at the store room?" Hint:bday present.

I see on the internet that most physicians prefer artificial implants in the nose like silicone or Gore-tex. Why doesn't Dr. Shah believe in the use of an artificial implant in the nose?

An artifical implant can be rejected by the nose. Any surgeon who uses enough of these implants will tell you that they can and do get infected. If a nasal implant extrudes from the skin of the nose, it will create a permanent scar because it damages the soft tissue of the nose. It can also create scar contracture of the entire nose of the patient including the nasal tip and dorsum. The repair of such a deformity requires extensive experience in costal cartilage and revision rhinoplasty technique.

Furthermore, an artificial implant will look, well artificial. Silicone implants create a shrink wrap effect to the nose and overaugment the nasal profile on almost every patient. It is very easy to see an implant placed in a patient with silicone, shiny skin, narrow dorsum, artificial appearing nose. Gore-tex can become infected just as easily. I have seen many patients with infections in their nose from Gore-tex. Many of these infected implants have come from reputable surgeons whose name in rhinoplasty or Asian rhinoplasty is signficant. This does not mean that every patient with an implant can have an infection, but it does mean that the risk of infection in an artifically implanted patient is much higher than a non artificially implanted patient.

The question on why many surgeons do use artificial implants has more to do with the technical demands required of using autologous implants and the extra time it requires. A rhinoplasty with an artificial implant takes much less time. A silicone or gore-tex implant in the office can take as little as 15 minutes. To reconstruct a nose with your existing tissues, septal cartilage and/or ear/rib cartilage will take longer but the results justify the time and precision it requires.

There are a handful of surgeons in the world who can use costal cartilage in the setting of a rhinoplasty at a high level. This makes finding a surgeon who can use all of the best available techniques a challenge. Fortunately, Dr. Shah has performed over 100 costal cartilage rhinoplasties and has coauthored 2 seminal articles on costal cartilage rhinoplasty (aka rib rhinoplasty). Not every Asian patient will want or need a costal cartilage rhinoplasty but only a surgeon who performs this procedure will be able to determine this.

We are all aware of the problems that Kalo caused... maybe it's time to stop posting in here and let the thread die, so that newbies wun stumble upon it and get curious. We do look out for the name Kalo in the other popular threads and advise against using them.

u see..the nose tip has this slight translucent look. i think that happens in most nose implants? i dunnoe. at least that happens to me.
i think overall kalo service is good. im just worried abt the over blanching of skin as it may lead to skin cells to die.

before surgery...avoid drinking too much water. say 24hours before the surgery. avoid salt intake too. as these may result in water retention.

I realise the difference betw having surgery in US and in asia is that in asia, drs usually dun give this equal status to their patients. there is this lack of common knowledge and information given to their patients. In us, drs will tell u what implant (material) it will be, the consequences, the benefits and etc.

in asia, the drs tell u briefly.

so ppl who intend to do PS, do be mentally prepared. if costs aint an issue, maybe u guys can try certified drs in US. besides US is a good place to recuperate aft the post op.
