We emailed him last night specifically for levator b4 & after photos, hope he'll reply soon. His website has all the eyelid photos but i don't know which ones are for levator.


Hi angelfern,

I think it's under the section "眼瞼下垂" - I'm not sure what exactly is levator surgery but if it's to correct ptosis then it should be it :)



Yes! u're so smart. I salute to your sun. :)
Dr Jong replied yesterday. He's quite fast in his reply. It's the 7th & 8th photos counting from the last photo. I don't know how to pronounce the chinese words. "Yan something xia chui"

We consulted MH here before. Sis has double eyelids but the upper eyelids cover about a quarter of her iris, so he suggested ptosis, quoted about 10k+.

Dr Jong quoted about 3k for levator inclusive of double eyelids so we think it's very worthwhile. What about Dr Chuang & Dr Hsu, do you think they do levator surgery too? Coz from their photos, they didn't specify whether they do it.

^ im seeing Dr Hsu for rhinoplasty, unfortunately he does NOTHING with the eyes because he is a ENT specialist. Im also going to see Dr Jong too.

Dr Jong and Dr Chuang prices are the exact same so actually i found out a lot of ppl on here and Purse Forum are always deciding between the two of them, im choosing Dr Jong only cuz Dr Chuang seems too busy,

Thanks blissful09,

Shall stick to Dr Jong then, read about Artwood's article, quite detailed in his writing & explanation for each case but very limited photos to view.
The scar for epi & lateral is quite minimal.

Hi,

You may try to email Dr. Kao at chuanhsiang@yahoo.com.tw

He usually replied within 24hours.. :)

Btw, when are you leaving to taipei?

Shouldn't be any problems..

Try email Dr. Kao chuanhsiang@yahoo.com.tw to check on his schedule..

Mine op is dated on 17th, if he can fix you on 15th or 19th then we can assist one another.. :D

Can take turns to takecare each other! :P

Its not that high?? :shock: I hear NTD$110-120k for the last few quotes for ribs, which is no where near S$6200. I kinda check the rates very often, from XE.com, the rate is like $4800-5200 max?

BTW angelfern, is it really very tough to go alone? :o

I'm a little worried now since my bf can't make it to go with me, and I'm deciding to wing it and take care of myself on this trip.


NTD120K conversion is somewhere about 5k-5.5k

When you intended to go? perhaps you may want to consider going with me? :D

:( I booked on jan 5th for my flight aiks, wanted to go during off peak season.

Btw, I actually asked Dr. Kao again in early november, whether its 110 or 120 - he said its 110, which is 4.8-5k sgd. Maybe he raised his price only lately?

Thanks for the link very informative though I don't really like the style by artwood. Artwood clinic is whose clinic? Dr. Yang?

Hello, anyone done breast augmentation with Dr Chuang before? Or any doctor to recommend? Thks! =D

Btw, just curious, do those clinics accept credit card for payment? Will the exchange rate of credit card be good?

Hi huskyjude,

Yeah, Artwood is Dr Yang, can't seem to find his credentials.

Hey boii18,
