Which doctor would you choose to go for rhinoplasty??

Postby SIA Cabin Crew Gal » Wed, 14 May 2008 2:12 am

Hi ladies,

I have wanted to do my nose since ages ago. After joining sq n saving up i went to see Dr W.W. At my 1st consultation, he said h'e need to break my bones under general anaestic and alarplasty and refine the tip which costs abt SGD17 000. He said its alot of $$ and discouraged me fr doing my nose and asked me to do a chin implant instead, tht costs SGD7000. I heeded his advice and did the chin implant. the results are great and it did make me more prettier n lots of ppl have complimented me even saying i lost weight. im glad he helped me out.

The only bad thing is that he was very late for the surgery. nearly 3hrs late. and he had to rush in n out of the room to atteand to many patients as the same time. eg. he came in and injected me w anaestheic and quickly left the rm only to return few minutes later and so on.... post op instructions were not given. everything i learnt was fr my own research.
:(

on my 2nd n 3rd consultaion he said to me tht the new chin takes away the imperfections of my nose. and again told me not to do the nose and asked me to seriously think abt it.i asked him if he can do it without breaking the bones bcoz i find it too invasive n scary and dont really wan a whole new look. but he replied tht my septum is crooked and tht the only way is to break the bone.

So I went to Dr M.H... He said tht i dont need to break the bones. He said he can narrow it by removing some cartilage and do alarplasty and refine the tip. all under local anaesthetic for SGD15000 b4 GST. I paid another SGD500 to do virtual surgery. yet to collect the pics.

What do you think i should do!!!

Whose diagnosis shd i go with??

I suggest going to taiwan to get the surgery

M H and W W are overcharging you, in taiwan you can get alot cheaper and the surgeon's are really skilled.

I suggest you may heed Dr. Wu's advice. Dr Wu is an expert in this field and I'd say he has a precise eye for facial details and structure.

I went to him for revisions after having problems arising from my previous surgery. .

During the first consultation with Dr. Wu, he already managed to point out accurately all the problems area which concerns me. I am truly amazed because it takes someone with an eye for perfection and good skills to rectify those problems since many doctors I consulted way before, could not detect them and they seemingly appear at loss to solve the problems.

I think he charges reasonably because the skills & techniques are good and precise and I know people from US have been flying all the way to Singapore just to consult him. He flies to Australia at times to give semineer on certain procedures. He is really a well known aesthethic surgeon internationally.

Speaking from my experience with Dr. Wu , I'm very happy with the results he provided and I know he's someone professional and competent . Being an honest surgeon himself, if he tells you not to do something, it's likely that you don't need that procedure I remembered ever asking him if I should do a cheek bone surgery, he told me rightaway I don't need that, I already have cheek bones, and it's true because I went home telling my mother about it and she pointed out most of my grandparents are all high cheek bones and even mother herself.

Coupled with the revision he assisted in my case, it proves further to justify what he had told me, I can see for myself right now my cheeks are better looking and it unveil the good structures I have within. Dr. Wu
is really a very good surgeon , due to what he had helped me with, my life quality is so much improved and I even work better after surgery!

it's your face. go to the best. i'm not a fan of plastic surgery, but i perceive better trained surgeons to take better care of you.

i don't think surgeons should be doing anesthetic themselves under such conditions (in a rush) among other things.

oh well. good luck on everything and i hope you don't get addicted to surgery. it's becoming to be quite a problem...

Well Dr. Wu had also injected LA to me and there is nothing wrong with it.

Only well qualified doc can do this.

I suppose what is being referred above is also Local anesthesia? Only for GA you may request for the numbing specialist ?

if the 2 above mentioned surgeons are who i think you're talking about, i'd go for the former.

not that i have any personal experience (although have been contemplating for the past 20 years or so for rhinoplasty!!), but having seen works by both, i'd feel more confident with WW.

those done by MH look natural, but almost as if they were same as before... duh... :roll: and many came back for revisions... so... draw your own conclusion...

good luck!

as for LA given by surgeons, its very common for minor procedures (liposuction, release carpal tunnel/trigger fingers, blepharoplasty etc...) and for people who are not suitable or prefers not to have GA. Leaving the room after injecting LA allows it time to work... but leaving surgery to see other patients?? :???:

but then again, it could be surgeons (especially those in private practice) trying to save money not getting anaesthetist... :lol:

My miserable post surgery bluessssssss

Postby SIA Cabin Crew Gal » Fri, 20 Jun 2008 9:10 pm

Hi....

I did it with Dr W.W.

Firstly He was 2.5 hrs late. Then after he saw me sitting there he asked his nurse,'am i supposed to do xxxx today?'

I felt like shit after that already.

Secondly, He did not take any cartilage fr my ear as we agreed on during the several consultations. Which is surprising bcoz he was e one who insisted that he would need the cartilage fr my ear. i paid extra for tht additional procedure.. I asked the nurse if i can get a refund and she has yet to revert to me. on the operating table, i realised he was stitching me up but had not yet done anything to my ear, so i asked him how come he did not take cartilage fr my ear and he replied that he used a different technique...

Now i feel tht my nose looks totally upturned and awful... I feel miserable and i feel tht i look so much better b4. it sucksssss

im in total depression, i used up ALL my savings of SGD$16,000 just to look f*cking worst........ i cant believe despite going to the best this sh*t can happen to me...

been crying my eyes out..... i hate it. i feel that if he had just gone according to plans this wouldnt have happened. whats the point of going thru all the procedure during all the damn consultations and not following thru?? even if i get a refund of 1,200 for the procedure, so wat?? the results r f*cked up....................

to those who r thinking of surgery, pls pls i hope tht u can learn fr me. i already was pretty with ppl complimenting me. maybe this is e price to pay for being so damn greedy.

i'm sorry u feel worse after your surgery. but do u really think u look worse than before or is it the initial swelling, or perhaps u're not used to your new face? did u seek others' opinion?

did u ask him why he used another technique? what technique was it? what graft did he use? can he not reverse the surgery?

its no good getting a refund of only 1200, if he messed it, shouldn't he be giving u a revision for free?

sorry for asking too much :?

Hi there, if only i saw your post earlier....
Another guy had something similar happening to him too...done by the same dr...also didnt get what he was promised...
if not i could have warned or shared with you..

I really dont know wad to say except that you dont get too upset and be in the solution mode now.

depresseddddd

Postby SIA Cabin Crew Gal » Mon, 23 Jun 2008 6:23 pm

im going to see him to remove my stitches.

I m so angry....

Supposed to straightened the nose using cartilage.

He said he wld need to use cartilage frm my ear...
I had my inhibitions towards tht idea bcoz i didnt want another
incision! He kept insisting and said he will need additional cartilage
and there wouldnt be enough fr my own nose....

Eventually he did not take any out of my ear!!!!!

I asked him on the op table n he jus replied tht he had used a different technigue.

i felt so da*n annoyed tht he was so flippant abt the whole thing.
i went do do so much research abt the whole ear cartilage grafting n
pondered abt the whole thing so many time and discussed it at length over so many consultaions and this is wat hapenssssssssss. He made it VERY clear that if there's anything tht crops up after surgery i have to
spend additional cost..and tht is just part of the risks of habing plastic surgery....... so basically ive spent my life savings to look like shit.

I really hope its jus swellinggg that s all i hope for rite now.... but
by now i shud be able to see a rough shape isnt it.... but its really bad. Not just BIG n swollen, but distorted at the tipppp which i spent 9000 on. the nose itself does lookkk straighter thoughhhh. straightening it cost me another 5000.... F*ck. im so damn sadddd

Keep thinking of all the other things i cold have doneee with the $$$. Done a degree. went on Holiday. bought an enormous diamond ring....

regrets regrets

i shud have jus been contented with my face.

this is wat i get now

oh dear, doesnt sound like a very good experience.
he shld deliver what he promised. you should go back to him to clarify.

anyway nose job takes a while to heal.. it looks very big at first with no defined bridge but it will get better and better. rest well and heal well!!

So sorry to hear your story. I went to WW for consultation and he was not giving proper attention etc and I felt uncomfortable so I didn't go ahead with it.

You should go to other doctors and see if they can improve your situation.

i hope you get better

Different people heal differently, swell differently too. Some swell to damn enormous, some a little only, too soon to tell... wait a while, like 3 mths b4 u reassess your nose again :) *fingers crossed*
