i totally agree. A trip will be fun, especially as we have spent so much money on our surgeries, we might as well spend abit more to enjoy a good holiday in taiwan & make more new friends, notwithstanding the support we can give each other while being operated upon in a foreign country.

Can I start the ball rolling? Who's going in January?

This is my 1st trip to taiwan too! :oops:

For sure you cant plan it as a vacation especially when we are on our own for ps. Post op if get better, walk around for shopping shall consider as bonus! 8-)

You might have difficulties putting on tight fitting clothes and causes pain on new incision. So pls bring light baggage and loose clothes if possible. Not to forget you will need 1 thick jacket to keep you warm. Anyway, the weather is cold in taipei, so not to worry if your clothes might stink when wore more than onces :)

Mine is a last minute decision, out of no choice, pay high price ticket also must go ahead with plans :P

Will have a small meetup with a few people from the forum in taipei. Do leave down your email if you keen to tag along..

:)

Results look really natural, mind me asking what surgery he performed - did he use the mini incision and magic epi?


Hi there,
it was 3 point mini incision and normal epi (not magic epi). I think only the korean doctors do magic epi..

Hey everyone,

I actually read the whole 50-something pages and I am determined to go to Dr Su for double eyelid surgery despite the fact that I study in France. Only problem is I emailed her with many pictures and a few questions in English last week but she hasn't responded. Would she think that I am too troublesome and hence ignores me?

Also, I want to do buccal fat removal. Any doctor recommendation?

If anyone wants to go together, I could go during CNY, early March, or late April/beginning May =)

Dr. Jung & Dr. Chuang replied.

Dr. Chuang recommended the same procedure mini-incision double eyelid combined with epicanthoplasty but quoted NT35,000. Is this the same price you paid as well? Dr. Jung quoted NT20,000 for double eyelid surgery & NT12000 for Epicanthoplasty and advised that epi may not work for everyone.

Dr Chuang quoted NT80,000 for gorotex bridge augmentation,tiplasty with septal & ear cartilage graft, tip defatting for smaller tip, & alarplasty for nostril reduction.

Dr Jung quoted NT60,000 for silicone implant only on dorsum, with sculpturing of nose tip with septal cartilage and ear cartilage.

May I ask what is septal cartilage? Dr. Chuang's prices seem to go up quite a fair bit?

Thanks for getting back to me :) It's a shame that TW doctors have mastered the technique to do "korean style"double eyelid surgery and not the magic epi. Maybe later on they will

I emailed Dr Chuang some time ago and still no reply, I think I need to do a slight nudging or reminding

Septal cartilage if i remember correctly is the existing cartilage inside the nose. Sometimes if you have enough you can use it in combination with ear catilage / rib for rhino

I'm going in Jan and booked already. :)

The tickets are so much cheaper and I don't see any sense in going budget airlines at 800-900+ when in Jan I can get Eva Airlines at half the price. I already feel so claustrophobic in short flights to bangkok or KL I can't imagine going to Taipei on Jetstar. :???:

Hi I'm traveling to Taiwan to get my nose and eyes done with Dr. Kao. My sister is undecided about getting her chin done with Dr. Chuang or Dr. Kao. We will be in Taiwan on Jan 10 till Jan 24, 2010. Would love to meet up with some girls for some shopping and sightseeing. Our tickets have been booked and now I'm finalizing our accommodations. I might just end up staying at the apartment recommended by Dr. Kao for convenience. If anyone is interesting in hanging out feel free to email me : millsy2@ymail.com

BTW we don't speak a single word of Mandarin.

This will be an interesting trip :???:
