Korea is too ex for me. Those really good ones are really expensive. Those recommended in sg expat forum, cozycot forum or flowerpod forum though affordable, i dont find their results fantastic. I have seen dr chuang's results on two forummers. They are good! Like it better than Dr. Su's work. If you have any good and affordable korean surgeon, do let me know.changeinme wrote:it's cool. all water under the bridge. i just received a reply from dr nara. i think his followup email is rather comprehensive cos mine is too. lol. i sent him photos stated my concerns. told him my consult with the opthamologist. i got a reply for his email and he pretty much told me to follow the instructions of my opthamologist and he is fairly certain i will be able to close my eyes eventually.huskyjude wrote: Dear changeinme, I apologize if my earlier posts have offended as there have been alot of suspicious posts in the cozycot forum as well as weird personal mails from other people. Moreover, what you have experienced and posted is totally different from what I have encountered.
I think Dr. Nara does not respond very well to email. Everytime I email him, I usually get only one or two liners, you would think he's nonchalent but he's very nice & reassuring in person.
If you think that you do not wish to waste time & effort going back to hatyai to look for Dr. Nara, you could perhaps give him a ring and talk to him personally. Perhaps you can get better answers. Just a suggestion.
Give it some time. The eyes usually take a longer time to deswell and usually they only look nice after 1-2 months, moreover, i think dr nara usually does full incision (as in the traditional cutting method), which will take some time to heal compared to the stitching/sutures method or mini incisions method.
If you are still unhappy with your eyes then, you can consider revision. I wouldn't recommend Singapore doctors for revision jobs esp. epi. If Korean docs (Migo etc) are too ex, you can go to Taiwan docs as well. I think Dr Chuang does revision work on epi - his primary work cost about S$1300 but revision work may cost slightly more. I am also considering to go to Dr. Chuang myself for epi.
Wish you all the best.
his reply to my epi is rather vague. i've pretty much documented my concerns with the photos. he advised that it's too early to assess results but in his experience there shouldn't be a need for revision and went on to say plastic surgeons usually wait 6 to 12 months for a revision. i'll have to live with this for awhile and give it time.
i've also heard about dr chuangs reviews on epi. i've sent him an email about my results yesterday and i'm still waiting to hear back. i really think you should go for korea's magic epi if you can. i think dr chuang don't do magic epi but i may be wrong. i hope your outcome will be much better than mine. keep me posted
I will probably be going Jan next year as the tickets to Taiwan now are horrendous almost $900 two-way.
