Well, somehow he merged his expertise with plastic surgery...
I was told he was an assistant to Dr Chuang, then i guess he followed Dr Chuang long enough and something sparked along the way?

Well, just like Dr Hsu (Kaohsiung) or even Dr Gao(Taipei), they were ENT doctors.. :wink:


yah he is working with dr chuang. i guess he fiqure out that his specialist could do good with some plastic surgery procedures. bone shaving and jaw resharing is still his area of specialisty just that it is prepackage for PS for more earning potential...

most importantly he is still aspecialist in one area of his strength, this should put more confidence for patients just like dr kao and dr hsu is ent specialist and it put more confidence for their nose job..

FELINE EYES!
silent reader is wondering about an update on your eyes and nose! :)
hope you're seeing the fruits of your labor!!

excited to find out




You are welcome ^_^

My eyelids are still swollen at 1 1/2 weeks, therefore still waiting.

You want to get your eyes done? Some guys look pretty good with single fold ... My favourite type of eyes for guys are longish (not roundish... too girlish and cute) with hidden double fold, example Takeshi Kaneshiro.

What do you like/desire/aim for?[/quote]

Hi people,

may i know from those people who have done rib graft autology before,

does the rib naturally form cartilage around the nose that makes it feels like a real nose, that wont be able to shift about if use fingers to feel it? As in will the rib settle down on the nose ...just like a real nose?

For myself, though I am not sure if they are both adhere together, I definitely can't shift the implanted area anymore. It feels like a single piece.


That is cool :P So it means it feels just like a real nose if uses fingers to feel the nose hehe

Hey Feline - FINALLY! good to know there's a light at the end of your tunnel! Hope you LIKE what you see each morning though.

Appletree - in my case, the cartilage sits on top of the bridge all the way to the tip. It's still quite hard/firm. It's not like you have the bridge bone and then it goes into softer cartilage tissues. It's just one hard cartilage all the way to the tip. It definitely doesn't move around.
My tip is still very firm to the touch, the bottom is actually immovable. Previously, when I grinned, the bottom (columellar) would ride up with the upper lip - now it stays put! This is great. Dr Hsu has this firm belief that the tip is most important part of a rhinoplasty and I think he ensured that in my nose since I had little or very soft cartilage before - it was a flat nose! sniff!
Just don't expect to go rubbing your nose like before and I'm still wary of people accidentally knocking into it ... I'm just completing my third month.

Hi 4kix,

thanks for sharing :) Im actually kind of afraid when i go facials that the beautician will accidently bump or knock into my nose.. hehe. Sol i guess we still must be extra careful into hard knocking impacts eventually as real nose will breaks too if the impact is too big? hee... i hope the rib graft wont be so fragile like implants? hmm..
May i know how long does it takes for your nose to look natural?
