when are u coming back?? I think coming back to Singapore not a problem.. Cos when I was at the Thai custom they also don't even bother to look at me Just chop chop chop Onli.. Maybe choose those custom officer that look more friendly n relax de.. :p , when reach Singapore is confirm save Liao.. That morning u saw my whole face so swollen rite... Lol


hmmm, it's still worrying that a lot of ppl have not read up on the post-op healing process....

10 days for major swelling to go away, 3 mths for most micro swelling to disappear, and 6 mths for most shapes to be roughly finalised... more pineapples to deswell, papayas to fight infection, preferably started on a course of sinnech prior to op

if u r still in thailand, do approach any pharmacy for an extra course of antibiotics, just in case u get infection then u no need to go gp, just start one new course... just tell the pharmacy u just had PS... cheap insurance...

no worries abt getting thru thai customs, my head swelled to twice it size on 2 occasions and they didn't bat an eyelid



addvark,
sorry to bother u..but how normal is norma? i do know everyone has different downtime and all but its almost 2 weeks n my eyes still look lik day 1 surgery..cant open it fully n my entire eyelid is still numb thou most of e swelling has more or less subside =(
i took my sineech coursel.now looking for arnica montana in singapore..=((


how do we get Arnica Montana in Singapore? i looked at Guardian but they don't sell. Anyone seen it at other pharmacies? SinEcch is just a branded form of Arnica Montana. so anyone?


you can try ordering online @ makemeheal.com
but similarly they haf in a couple of pharmacies in SG under e brand NELSONS.
its called ARNICARE. i bought mine from watsons.lik20plus SGD~

Hi everybody, I had check with Dr. Putti and Dr. Chi, both of them don't do Tipoplasty.

Dr. Putti more daring, my Rhino only did for 3 months and he says it can be redo even after 2 months.

Dr. Chi more safety come first, he wants me to send me my past photos in all angle and after Rhino operation photos. (which I had send but he still ask me to send (>.<)||| LOLx

So now I have to resend to Dr. Chi and ask him on advise but he takes ages to reply lor..

I will follow by a call after I email Dr. Chi. His english is not as good as Dr. Putti so if you wanna email him, maybe you can type in more layman term.

I will update more detail.

Thanks
Cheers!

extrusion unlikely unless ur doc is no good. my nose 3 years almost is still ok.

haha.

anyway, sign of extrusion is redness and/or pain. there may be no pain and it just extrudes. there's redness and inflammation at the sharpest point of the medial tip. other symptoms may transpire such as pain but not necessary.

and soon, the implant will poke out of the skin

asymmetrical eyelid =(

Postby xuaniie89 » Sat, 16 Apr 2011 4:02 pm

Hi,

im one month post epi and blepharoplasty with Dr nara. My friend did hers tgt, and it was perfect, symmetrical.

Right after the surgery i realised the incision were one high and one low, uneven height. Nurses told me its due to swelling. But i think there is an obvious difference angle in arch.
http://img688.imageshack.us/i/photo19v.jpg/

Back to singapore, now 1 month post surgery, my crease are still uneven though the swell of both eyes are same. The one with higher incision, my eyelashes were poking out real bad.
http://img62.imageshack.us/i/photo29gi.jpg/

When i close my eyes, the incisions were obviously different height.
My scars at epi is terribly protruding out though it cant be really seen from the pics. They are actively growing annd spreading out. And my eyes cant be closed fully when i sleep, its really painful every morning.
http://img832.imageshack.us/i/photo4oi.jpg/

So depressed. I have hence resigned because i dont even dare to step out of hse now.

Anybody experienced such case? It is impossible that Dr Nara cant see the asymmetrical incision right? I really need some help..

Thanks.

Today is the 10th day after my surgery with dr chi.

I did lip reduction, brow bone implant and rhino+ alar with him.
I must say his skills is not good after all.

Dr Chi said he will use stitches that are dissolvable.
But for my lip reduction, I can see the stitch on my lower lip which is so long, dangling down on my lip. The other side of my lip has a transparent string-like line, which must be the stitch. So the stitch are not even dissolvable.
For alar, he did not cut any flesh(weird), he just squeeze the excess fats to the middle ( tip ) and stitch it for it to stay in shape. Both my nostril have obvious stitches and I need to go to a doc to remove them!

I don't really recommend people to go for brow bone implant ( very rare procedure ) as it changes your eyes expression totally, and your head will swell up and hurt extremely bad when you are washing your hair.

Dr Chi is fine otherwise for his professionalism, advices and the price.

I will be going to remove all my implants soon. Wasted 3.5k+ SGD for nothing. An expensive lesson I learnt..

Good luck everyone!
Life is a misery.
