Hi rossie,
i'll send him another email 3 days later if he haven't reply but I noticed he'll usually reply his mails on sundays.

If we use ear cartilage for the tip, I find it rather big & obvious during the initial stage so I wrote to him to enquire if we can inject on the nose tip to reduce swelling but he replied that he don't recommend using steroid as it may lead to complications.

still unsatisifed with dr chuang's work and he has not provided me with a reply. most pple i know say that my eyes are a bit too long, others say that its ok, looks really caucasian.

personally, I did not ask for this hollowness, neither did i ask for the epi to be so long. I asked him not to change my eye length and he said it can be done that way.

I sent him an email again. His follow-up care is pretty bad, he does not reply to your emails.

Here is what I sent again.

Hi dr chuang

I did epi and eyelid with you 6 months ago, and am still unsatisifed
with the result. You have not replied to my emails.

1) my eyes are too deep - I think it is now acceptable, but not something I like

2) the epicanthoplasty made my eyes too long - you said that it would
not make my eyes longer, but my eyes are longer around 2mm each side.

Please advise if you know how to do the reversal of epicanthoplasty.

Thank you

Warmest regards
Chris

I sent an email to Dr Puttisak and here is what he replies me :
" As I see the photo, your nasal bone has a boarden and high pattern. It need to remove the bone in order to make the nose small and change. I think that the surgeon in Thailand has the few experience in this type of the operation. The nose bone reduction need to do in the hospital. In the routine practice of surgeon in Thailand, we commonly do the insertion of the prosthesis. It will make the nose look more higher, and sharp. The higer nose will make the nose relatively small.
It will change the nose without the bone removal.
If you want to make your nose like the Caucasian you have to do the reduction.
Regards,
Puttisak "

It seems like he can't help me so I guess I have to pin my hope on Dr Kao..
But Dr Kao doesn't reply my email..

And also I sent another email to Dr Hsu from Taiwan and here is his reply

" If you just want a bit natural change
ear with nose cartilage is enough

If you want a high nose like Westerns
rib cartilage will be better

However, if you are under the age of 20
you need to come with your parents, then we can have the surgery

Dr. Ying-Che, Hsu

It seems like Dr Hsu isn't much interested in his reply..
I can only pray hard now for Dr Kao to reply me..
Perseverance and determination is the way to success. I need them~~~~

that might be scar tissue developed underneath as i have this same problem too. those that know i did my nose, can see that my nose is slanted, because of the lump on the right that 'pulls' the skin.

i read that in earlier stages, the doc can inject some kind of steroid to reduce the lump. you might want to refer back to your doc & check abt this lump. hth!

i am not sure why some pple here comment that they do not get replies from dr kao. maybe cos they are new patients so dr kao takes longer time to reply.

for me, till date he has been very prompt in his replies. the longest i waited was less than a week.

i would rate dr kao 7-8/10 for after-op care. he is not the most caring as he is so swarmed in his schedule. but if you take the initiative to approach him, he will give u his time & attend to you.

he doesnt charge you his fees. but you need to bear the hospital charges incurred like surgery room, anaesthetic etc... i suppose cos he doesnt have his own clinic so these are fees he cannot waived off.

Hi all,
When the doc create an incision to insert the implant, there'll be a scar tissue like a pimple on the right nostril, towards the tip. the lump shouldn't be big enough to cause uneveness. Do you think we'll have this problem if we use ear cartilage? Could it be due to the uneven absorption of the ear cartilage?

I read in Dr Hsu's website that he'll inject on the nose tip to speed up the deswelling but Dr Kao replied me that he won't recommend it as it'll lead to complications.

Is anyone planning to go to Taipei around end of July/beginning August.
I'm planning to go in for a few procedure, and was wondering if anyone is interested to go along. I'm not too keen to brave the trip myself,.... :P

I am female, 29yrs and will be coming from Australia (speak english and some mandarin). I plan to see Dr. Hsu and Dr. Chuang. If anyone is going around that time and would like to buddy up, please let me know.
At this stage my schedule is quite flexible
:D


Hi belle80! Like you I am from Australia...and like you I have put off the operation until now LOL.

I'm planning to go see Dr Kao in June for rhinoplasty, it would be great if we could meet up and give each other moral support or something :P.

I can speak pretty good mandarin so I hope language wouldn't be a problem.

I'm female, 22 and from Melbourne, so PM me if you are interested!

it has been really long time since i last log in to this forum..
was surfing through this forum to see if there is still any xxxxx thread with kalo! :mad: kind of like leave me scars in life.. sigh..

anyway, im a patient of Dr.Kao, i just saw the posting regarding donor's rib cartilage! How great would it be that if i can use a donor's rib instead of mine, as i have the scar on my rib too.. however in another aspect, i would not be keen on the idea to use a deceased person's rib bone on my nose.. :o

Well anyway, Dr Kao did a good job for my nose, except that i dont really like the height of my nose, im thinking to reduce the height of it as i want a more asian nose too. I like the nose tip done by dr kao though. Reason why i want my bridge to lower abit as i noticed a high nose will makes a person looks more mature and usually people will suspect if you have a nose job done, most asians dont have high nose. :(

And also, can anyone share how they deal with their friends who might suspect that you have a nose job done? As the nose looks different from last time..?
Please dont ask me for pictures of my nose, you can find it in Dr. kao's website though.

Anyway, Dr Kao,too suggest me to use LA and he could help me to scrape the height of the bone, kind of like what the other forumer has mentioned, need to slice open the nose in order to do it. Im afraid to do surgeries again, scare of the pain. :(

Sorry for the long post...


oh apple tree, i have the same prob.. after 2 years it still looks big...

second time dr kao patients:
he doesn't charge any thing for revision at all? anesthesia?


Seems like rib cartilage is a solution for those seeking a more western and stronger look.


guys any pics to share for those who did rib cartilage?

i must admit the best post op pics i seen ard the web for rhionoplasty are the ones under rib cartilage.

those were the ones with dramatic improvement.
