Jaw shaving started from US ( Sex Reassignment ) and Thailand ( Same ), not Korea, but I think its practised in Korea much more. In fact in the past Thailand was always the destination for surgery and only recently S.Korea. You can also look towards Japan and Korea. Singapore might be OK in this area, as it doesnt involve delicate and complicated nasal structure but yields more towards maxillofacial. Andrew Tay seems a good choice.

Anyways, Tokai charges 2.6 k sgd for jaw and 2.6 k SGD for cheekbone.

not sure if can trust them on such a major operation..

but we'll see how :)

i'll be doing it next year

i meant that the korean dr's started the current method (re-positioning the malar instead of shaving it)

do people in thailand have wide cheeks? just curious


thailand ar. something like singapore. many girls do not have prominent jaws or cheekbones.

the guys, some of them do, however.

NOnetheless do let us know your results!

If I had more money, I'ld go to the top and most recognised Korean/Thai P.S.

Which Korean PS did you choose?

i think surgcial treatment is scary, painful and risky but if you really dont like your feature and wanna do a big change, surgical treatment is the only way.

My advise is look for real plastic surgeon, not any aesthetic doctor cos they charge you almost the same amount but one have real experience for all the practice (plastic surgeon need further 6 yrs study and practice than normal doctor) but aesthetic doctor just normal doctor paid higher insurance cost (government rule for aesthetic doctor to buy higher insurance, in case of any patient claim them), i think nobody wanna become a victom of them right???

you can found all the license plastic surgeon from the government website, so think twice for which treatment you wanna do and most important find a GOOD plastic surgeon.

care to share with me your information?

i wanna get it done next year.

my jawline is currently controlled using botox. quite slim, but want it slimmer. and dont want tthe repeat botox injections.. its costly in the long term.

in may im going to tokaiclinic for 100 units of botox thats the max dose. hope it last me till early next year. but think will nid one more jab after tokaiclinic's jab =( before my shaving surgery.

dr kim seems very confident. he say there is little risk. diao. but anyway read a japanese article, they did on women aged 50+ with little complication. no need for transfusion. average blood loss from hemorhhage ( i think one case) is 500ml

a good p.s doesnt always nid to be board-certified but its a minimal requirement for most pple, myself included.

have no idea how dr pat isnt a proper surgeon ( he's not even trained in general surgery ) and yet he does my nose ok, thankfully.

i guess experience do matter too

but its your FACE ( and your LIFE probably ) u playing with go to a good one!

I had no idea, knew only after.

Some american docs are like these too.

Its allowed in US i dont see why its not allowed in Thailand

Its riskier lah. Imagine have a heart specialist performing surgery on your brain.

If he's heart specilist and perform surgery brain already very risky but now he isnt even trained in general surgery, he is risking your life and your future!!!!!!!!!!!

How can this kind of doctor exist???? I am glad you are ok now....
Although I think natural is better but really admire those have the courage to go for plastic surgery. Good luck in all your surgical treatment....and wish you happy after all. :)

Yeah he did a great job!

I'm considering either Tokai or Yanhee for my jaw reduction.

Not too sure about Tokai now.. I thought he was a surgeon!
