Hi im sorry i can help much on Dr Pat, but i do have have info about the numbness issue.mondayhue wrote:Hi jawful,
how much did you pay for your jaw shaving's surgery?
I heard that Dr.Pat offers different quotations to different customers. But I guess he's not the only surgeon who did that but my main concern is to prevent exploitation.
I was thinking of going to Dr.Pat initially but not so sure now after hearing a series of "numbness" incidents which may be related to nerve damage Can more people who have done jaw shaving before offer some valuable feedbacks? I'm really at a loss now... Have been researching but the infos dedrived from the net can be contradicting, ambiguous & vague. Sighs. And I need more assurance before I can muster ample confidence to proceed on with the surgery.
Factors that are holding me back:
1) Complications involved
2) Intensity of pain
I dont mind if a longer recovery time is needed provided the end result is satisfactory. Hoping to have a one time surgery w/o revision as it's very cumbersome to fly to and fro to a foreign country. (Need to book air tickets. settle accomodation. etc...)
Anyone know who are the doctors who offer free revision if result didnt turn out as expected? I guess I would be more assured then... and dont mind paying a little more for "insurance"... lols.
By the way, is it safe to travel alone to Thailand? I want to be discreet abt my surgery yet paranoid of travelling alone. Any suggestions?
I heard of Dr.Pat doing jaw surgery, how abt zygomatic surgery and thigh liposuction? Anyone can share? I cant find these services listed in his website but seem to have heard of him performing the above mentioned surgeries before, thus want to clarify.
Most imptly, is this Dr Pat experienced in jaw surgery as in better than other surgeons, mediocre or below average?
Appreciate all assistance, feedbacks, suggestions:D
It's normal to feel numb! Some it will go away in 6 mths, most recover in 1 yr. Some take longer...Permanent numbness is uncommon if done by an experienced doctor.
How do i know? I read so much feedbacks on the Taiwan fashionguide forum..most of their cases, the numb goes away in/within a year.
So you have to be prepared for it. My friend feels it, but she says it doesnt really bother her, knowing it will go away. Dr Chuang says the % is very very low (for him).
Hope this helps!
