I want to know more about lipodissolve, does it really help to slim down cheeks? i got fat cheeks, how much does it cost? do you know of any good doc in singapore?


Hi Evonchinyn, i have gone for my 1st session of lipodissolve for my cheeks. Dr Wong fr TLC@Orchard recommended me to do a total of 3 session, 1 session a mth. It has been 3 wks already and i do see a subtle improvement in the reduction of my cheeks. However, if u go for lipodissolve rite, be prepared that the swelling is pretty bad and u'll need at least 4 days to recover and get back yr original face size. So this swelling will occur in every session, juz be mentally prepared. The total cost for 3 sessions is $450. Consultation cost $30.


Hi rose,

I remembered you got good result from lipodissolve on your jawline.

Is it 450 USD or SGD for 3 session? That's such a good price!

I'll be in Taipei in Aug.

Remember my botox? My jawline improved after doing it 3 times, but because last time I did it in China the doc only injected 100 unit in my mandible muscle, my cheekbone muscle's gotten bigger and stronger! (cuz when I chew the lower muscle is paralyzed and relaxed, only the upper muscles are doing all the workout)

so this time i'm planning to get 200 units distributed evenly along my face from mid face to jawline. + i wanna try a session of lippodissolve.

The main reason i'm going to Taipei is to get my nose and boobs done.

Since lippodissolve is only injection it doesn't seems like a big deal, but do you know any doc does it well in Taipei?

Hi there, u remembered wrongly, i did vaser lipo on my jawline not lipodissolve. I only did lipodissolve for my cheeks. To me, there's only a very subtle improvement. But for me, it isn't enough. So i went and do vaser lipo on my outer and inner cheeks and underchin lipo last wk. I think skip the lipodissolve because the results will normally be below yr expectations. And the procedure is pretty uncomfortable, u will have to wait for at least 2 days for yr face to deswell.

Lipodissolve can be used on all areas, it's not juz limited to the facial fats only... If u wanna change yr facial bone structure, bone shaving is definitely needed.

Littlepills: I'm going to thailand for my surgery in late August. I chose Dr. Charan Mahatumarat who's apparently a renowned craniofacial surgeon and trains alot of bone work doctors over there.

He's cheaper than the Taiwan and Korean docs, mainly due to the cheaper accomodation and things in thailand, but the sugery would set me back $3000 USD.

Kinda nervous though. :? Have you chose your surgeon yet?

Anyways one of his research journals:
Reduction malarplasty without external incision: a simple technique (2004).

Hi,

I am new to this forum. I'm looking to do jaw shaving with Dr Pat next week. I am tight on budget and time as well. he gave me the price of $1350, but it sounds a bit scary. Is Dr pat a reliable surgeon? So has anyone done this kind of surgery? It is scary since there is no turning back after they cut your bone, what if my face will look very weird.
