How're your eyes now? Are they still swollen? I'm thinking of going to Dr Nara in June to get mine done too. How was your experience? Is the difference in your eyes after the surgery what you expected?
My eyes look typically like how they should look after surgery.
The lids are exaggerated and deep.
I think you should take a look at the following website to have a rough idea what to expect:
I have some bruises under my eyes, I look as though I have been physically abused xD
I guess it's due to the epicanthoplasty, me being fair and bruise easily just make them more obvious -.-
I think it's too early to tell or judge the sucessfulness of my surgery cause the lids etc will take at least a few months to settle. However, some people who had the same surgery commented that Dr Nara did a good job (I have no idea how they tell, I definitely can't).
I almost went insane while waiting for my surgery. Was told to return to the clinic 2 hours later and after that waited for another 2 hours for my surgery. I suggest that you keep checking with the clinic assistant on how long more you have to wait, feel free to walk around instead of just waiting (I was stupid) at the clinic. There are quite a few things to browse near the clinic (Don't bother to try the bak gu teh nearby). If you are going one day before your appointment, you can try visiting the night market which has a lot of things to see (the malls at Hat Yai are boring as in they are almost like our OG etc).
My consultation with Dr Nara is only 5 mins I think, he is a nice and warm uncle. I left it all to his expertise, I also don't agree with having eyes that only look nice by themselves and don't blend well with the rest of your facial features. It will just look awkward. I wanted to do something to my nose but Dr Nara said my nose is already very nice. The clinic assistants also came to observe my nose and asked if i have done any nose job before.
I was given anti biotic, pain killer and solution to clean my eyes. I did take SineEch by myself and I have just ordered Actipatch, hoping to expedite the recovery of my eyes. I regret not ordering earlier!
I consulted Dr Richard Teo from TCS before, another warm and friendly doctor. He mentioned that Actipatch does work and showed me pictures which compare the usage of this device. Dr Richard Teo is not a profit oriented person and I trust his words. It's just a pity that he doesn't do epicanthoplasty.
