thank u ^^

day 6 of my nose job. i feel perfect. no more stuffy nose. i no longer take paracetamol. there is no pain and no fever. i feel zero nausea totally. post-surgical there was some nausea ( very mild ) because i for the first 3 days i was in bkk and i was forced to eat lots of fried food, and man, i ate alot !! now back in sg, im eating homecooked. it is better for my stomach indeed.

I am now taking

- danzen ( 2 times daily, becos dr pat's inflammation medicine has finished. dr pat say its fine for me to take danzen if i prefer )

- cipprofloxacin ( i am still taking dr pat's cippro, but left 2 more tabs. tml i would be starting on the cippro from NUH )

- centrizine ( this is from dr pat, left two more tablets. its an anti-histamine to stop me from sneezing and to reduce stuff nose. left two more tablets. i will be using loratadine, as prescribed by the polyclinic, dr pat says i can use loratadine in place of centrizine, or claritine )

After much thought, diet + exercise is the best way , rather than liposuction.. After my rhinoplasty, it scares me that there ARE risks and complications in EVERY plastic surgery and you have to be aware of that. Do less and definitely your risks are less.

I am now considering the bare essentials in this revamped makeover programme:

1) weight loss - literally free.
2) Botox ( jaw - do 3rd jab ) - done in tokai costs much cheaper. will do in tokai, plus nose revision
3) rhinoplasty - complete rhino has been performed.
4) chin augmentation surgery - 400 SGD at nara - will be proceeding.
5) jaw reduction surgery - 2.5k SGD at Tokai - will be doing this Early '09
6) zygomatic reduction - 2.5 k at Tokai - will be doing this Early '09
7) lifestyle changes - get fitter - e.g. gym, swimming, water sports 8-)
8) get tanned, do my hair 8-)
9) resolve acne scars further even though I have a very good complexion already. i just need to maintain by doing regular masks. my acne scars have almost all faded except two small scars. seems like perfect complexion now without even blackheads.
10) reduce dark eye circles - eye masks, and rest. not been sleeping recently.

NOW i know why "eXtreme makeover" projects do not have so much surgery. It scares the hell out of me that I am risking almost 8 surgeries in the original plan. With 8 chances of asymmetry and other complications!!

* Original Plan
- Lipo => 3 surgeries
- Jaw Red
- Cheekbone Red
- Chin
- Rhino
- Browbone Red.

Which is CRAZY!

Thus, I have revised a barebone plan with

- nose surgery
- jaw red.
- cheekbone red ( we'll see if we need this after jaw red. )
- chin implant

And I have done the nose! So it means 3 more surgeries to go. Phew!


No more contemplating about epicanthoplasty etc. We will see. Its too early now. And I don't want to risk my eyes!!

Despite eating quite alot after my rhinoplasty operation, my weight has DECREASED to 63.5 kg. Down from 64 kg. And down from 66.5 kg at the start of the extreme makeover project. =/

Keep everyone updated.

Look much better after the nose job but I'm still battling terminal ugliness. Lets hope the whole idea of looking anorexic and plastic works out. :roll:

People who are fat and diets don't help, it's a good idea to check their thyroid with a doctor and do a blood test. This is the gland that regulates our metabolism.

I would consider you average looking judging from youtube video. I suggest not doing so much surgery. DON'T reduce your jaw -_- You're a guy, having a sexy defined jawline is necessary, you don't wanna be a girl for gosh sakes.

I say get the nose job and dont lose weight, you're a guy! Go to the gym! bulk up and get toned and slightly more muscular.

I'm a girl and scrawny, girly looking guys turn me off.

hi meili, i did at greenridge health aesthetic clinic in bukit panjang. but its very expensive. but dr shiao? the woman doc is very skillful and precise in injection and is certified by the botox company in injections :)

i did my second jab at dr pat. however, i requested for too much ( against his advice ) leading to me to have sunken in cheeks :( but not to worry it will be gone. the price at dr pat is twice lower even tho factor in air ticket costs! so go to dr pat for ur botox-es. haha. but be careful not to inject too much else have sunken in cheeks not nice. dr pat warned me but i was like. if inject more and inject less is same price, why NOT inject more? ( cos after-all if inject less have to discard the remaining botox.... and so he charge same price ). dr pat quite experienced in his injection :)

my sunken in effect is considered much better le however. the photo the effect was the maximum. now it has gone more "normal" :) but still, i dont like it.

http://www.friendster.com/photos/80904470/1/737517892

my lips appear abit lopsided cos i was like somehow raising my other side of the lip in the photo -.-" haha like smiling abit or sumting. but i smile quite normal lah :)

im quite satisfied with the result overall, tho it cud have been done better elsewhere.. but for the price.. haha. my gan didi says that i'm cute. lol

I have attempted so much that some pple dont recognise me. One person who I met at a chalet and merely casually chatted to has forgot me even though it was just december last year and after my chin already. Quite afew say that I have changed alot and almost couldnt recognise me when I accosted them. Maybe next year in chinese new year I would be an alien mixed-blood. haha.

List of past surgical/non-surgical procedures

Botox @ Greenridge Aesthetics clinic- december 2007 - 50 units in total

Restylane 2 cc Chin augmentation - decemeber 2007 - @ dr andrew tay

Weight Loss from 66 kg to 60 kg ( current ) - merely fat loss, not much muscle built.

List of planned furtther surgical/non-surgical procedures

Hair removal of upper lip area - NUH Dr Lee Shu Jin - November 2008

Chin Implant at Dr Nara - December 2008

Scar Revision Surgery of Alar with tokai clinic - January 2009

Jaw Reduction & Cheekbone surgery in taiwan - 2009 date unplanned.

Building up of muscle, sleep more, healthy lifestyle, drink water, using face masks, sun protection on scars, silicone gel on scar - current till beyond.


*Statement of Non-Lipo*
I swear that whenever possible I will attempt non-surgical procedures to attempt to rectify my flaw, and never to attempt surgery just because I have excess cash or am unsatisfied with myself, but rather attempt surgery when I feel intelligently that a certain modification will make me look better. :D Thus liposuction is most likely not for me, but rather taking a challenge at my personal fitness would be what I would do.
