However, my friend and relative dun really encourage me to do it as they afraid the operation might fail and I will be end up disfigured for the rest of my life. I do know they concern about me but on the other hand I really dissatisfied my nose, mine is low bridge, wide and large tip. I am dying to do it but at the time I afraid of failure too..Sometimes, I really hate myself for having this nose..hai.. Hence can someone advice me the risk factor and what if the operation fail, will the nose ruin forever? Thank you guys...


Rhinoplasty is only a minor surgery but no one can guarantee 100% risk free though. You got to decide for yourself how desparate you want to change the way you look.

But one thing I can say for myself, after I had done my eyes, nose, took off my braces and slimmed down I look totally awesome and feel so much more confidence nowadays.

I will be going to dr nara in Mar for my chin and also whitening for my teeth.

Be warned, ps can be addictive.


lol, i totally agree :) do remember to take time off to enjoy the results, else u will spend most of the year looking swollen than gorgeous :)
hence 2009 was a surgery-free yr for me... now toying with the idea of 2010 :P


You still got room for PS :P

Ya, let it recovers before moving on to the next ps, if not, will feel rather depressed looking at the incompleted work everyday.



Ya, I totally agreed with you kensan, I doing plastic surgery is for the sake of confidence, glad that you have gain your confidence hope in future I able too! hee..Hey btw I going on the march too! haa..mind I pm you for more details? =)


Sure, feel free to pm me if you have questions. Hope I can be of some help to fellow forummers like I had received from some here.

I did my chin with Nara and it's not painful. my incision is under my chin and not done intra oral. Recovery is a piece of cake for chin implant. The only pain you'll feel is like those bruises you get. Even removal of the stitches is easy cuz your chin will feel numb for the first week. Haha

BUT for alarplasty, different story... i did BA, alarplasty and chin altogether under GA. Post alarplasty hurts like hell when you smile lightly or even try to eat. I swear i cried when my friend made me laugh... the pain was rather unbearable for me i dunno why. The pain only went away slowly after 1 month or so. Removal of stitches for alarplasty also stings like hell!!!

BA aka breast implant... it HURTS LIKE HELL for me lah, but i have friends who felt that it's nt very painful. Different ppl different tolerance level.

Now i am about 3 months gg to 4 months post surgery.

Breast still numb as nara told me that BA takes abt one full year to recover for some. My alar is not painful anymore. My chin is still tender at times....

It's been 5 months since my rhino/alar surgery. Recovery has been fine except for a "hipcup" during the start of surgery.

One side of the alar did not seal back too well and after the stitches were removed, there was hole (literally). Nara gave me a cream and told me to apply it religiously till it heals. It was not something to be surprised about as it was a possible risk involved. However, it did heal after 2 weeks that I got back and it wasn't very noticable since it's at the bottom corner. I was just worried of infection but I suppose that's what the cream was for.

Nara helped to lengthen my tip, defined it a little sharper and a slight increase on the height of my nose (i already have a higher bridge than others - even the nurses were shock to hear that I did not had a rhino before that).

My surgery took about slightly more than an hour but it felt quite fast. I was awake after half an hour into the surgery but I felt kinda sleepy. I could feel what they were doing but it was mainly pressure (zero pain). Till the end, I was more awake and I could barely see him through the gauze on my eyes that he was sewing my up already. ;p I know it sounds eeky to read but when ur on the surgical bed, u will feel more fascinated instead.

Nara was very reassuring and he sounded quite friendly throughout the process. They even joked during the surgery and I even heard the nurse sing. He sounded different from how some have described him and I felt very at ease with him.

He is indeed a man of few words, and it is also the responsibility of the patient to do research beforehand. I read the whole rhinoplasty thread and random posts elsewhere to understand what I was about to go through. It did give me some form of assurance and trust with the procedure and doctor.

I experience the usual bruising, swelling around the eyes and nose. By day 3, the swelling has gone to the sides of the face and the mouth. I agree that the alarplasty is quite a killer but if you take the pain killers like 3 times a day after meal, it does help. I tried not taking it as nara does not recommend patients to take it religiously. Halfway thru my sleep, I got a "pain" awakening.. I could literally feel the swelling and pain with a fever all roll in one. I quickly pop the painkiller and it felt better together with the ice pack. The first few days, it's a torture to eat as the alar wounds are quite fragile and I had to cut up my food in small pieces to avoid stretching it. Then i chew in gentle movement to minimise any form of stretching too. It got better after day 4 and I remove my stitches on day 6. It hurt so much that I tear uncontrollably.. The removal of the stitches for the rhino was painful already, the alar was worse.. Still I just bite my teeth and tell myself it's going to be over soon.

Currently, my tip still has some swelling but it's ore define and I think nara did quite a good job making it look rather natural. Another friend who saw me on the 8th day said it was barely noticable that I went for surgery. Partly I do have quite a bulbous nose, so it might not be too obvious on the swelling (lol). For now I'm quite happy with it.

Hi,

How different is your overall face profile before and after the chin implant? After chin implant, do you reckon we can rest our chin on our hand while our elbow is rested on the table?

My chin actually get sharper after I slimmed down but I thought the implant may help to balance my overall face profile.

the chin implant shld balance out the proportioin. By right, the vertical length of our face: forehead should be one third, nose to upper lip one third, and mouth to tip of chin shld be another third.

done my chin twice, no problem resting on ur hand, although it can be quite sore at times...
Next: Forehead augmentation, botox, RF

I see, I suppose chin implant should not lengthen our face profile but to make it more protrude to achieve a better side profile right?

depending on the placement, the doc can achieve either lengthening or protrusion to balance out the proportions

Thanks dude, guess I will have to leave the placement to the hands of the expert then.

Due to time constraint, I have to do my chin surgery first then whitening of my teeth on the following day. Hope the pain will be bearable when the dentist pry open my mouth. :lol:

as with most incision dbl eyelid surgery, it takes abt a year to look natural, so be prepared for some questioning from frens and colleagues
