38000 TWD is quite expensive...

I swear sometimes if u dont speak mandarin and they know your a foreigner that will jack up the price.

There many good doctors u can go to between $900- 1000
If you want $25 credit for $15 on xquisis clothing and shoes contact me

Hi there,

Several reasons for having chosen dr. Hsu:
- preference for his sense of beauty: you can gather from his pics that every nose is custom-made, unlike many other surgeons who tend to create the same nose for all their patients
- cheaper (only slightly though)
- recently decided to limit surgery frequency per week (good to know that he finds it important to spend enough time on every single case)

I will most likely be going during those times. Still trying to decide between those two doctors. If anyone is going, let me know =)


I am going to have surgery under dr. Hsu.

Arrival in Kaohsiung and consultation scheduled for 26th of December, surgery on 27th and leaving Taiwan on the 8th of January.

I am in the process of booking an apartment for 2 weeks, as I'll be accompanied by my sister and possibly my boyfriend and Blissfull, another forumer.


Is blissful going for a revision? I don't quite remember. I was planning to leave on the 24th and come back around the 6th. Are you only doing your nose?


I have never been keen on PS. If I could get tighter bums by doing more sports or get rid of a few pimples by means of the appropriate creams and food diet, I would do. But it goes without saying one cannot change her/his nose without plastic surgery.

The rest of my body is not perfect (sometimes my boyfriend jokes about my flat chest, calling it two aspirines on an ironing board), but it doesn't have to be perfect either. All in all, I am quite happy with what I have been granted by nature.

Besides, as far as I am concerned, a first botched rhino does not really encourage to get additional PS. So I stick to what I initially wanted: a slightly improved nose.


Why did you choose Dr. Hsu and not Dr. Kao? I am still trying to decide between the two

Should you prefer studio's and apartments in Kaoshiung, check out these ones:

Recommended by Lonely Planet, which you can always rely on.

Heya,

Still going with dr. Hsu then? Thought you had changed your mind (I guess I must have mixed up with someone else). Anyways, should you feel lonely, don't hesitate to get in touch with me. I'll be staying in an apartment of Kaohsiung 202, from 26th December to 8th January.

Hahaa, I have a great idea: we could celebrate New Year together!

Talking about revision, this should also be the last PS intervention for me. After that, finito, over, basta.

If you wanna join me message me, prefer Mandarin speaker.

Maybe during the process, request to listen music with earplug and cover your eyes. it might minizise your fear.
like i go dentist for wisdom tooth removal, it is Local Anesthsia, but the dentist did this to me. It help on me but I don't know does it work on you. :)

im starting to REALLLYYY get pissed off at Dr Hsu right now.. ive only spoken good things about him on this site.. an i seriously think im making too many excuses for him just because he is a nice doctor "face to face"

So far from my emails too him.. i feel like he doesnt wanna do what i wanna do. I even told him i am willing to pay more.. but i feel he wants to do a rush job so that he can jump to his next client (two operations in one day, BTW i dont blame her, its doctor's fault)
Im start to get suspicious.. ok.. maybe he doesnt know how to do it?
He keeps telling me "your nose is fine u cant get a perfect nose"....
yet.. i NEVER asked for a perfect nose.. i just dont wanna walk around with a long big nose on my face (taiwanese like long big nose) in fact.. i prefer my short nose. I feel like he doesnt care about other ppl's preferences in "beauty" he can only see my pictures and he doesnt consider what my nose looks like in real life. Im getting really freak annoyed. So basically.. he just wants to do what he wants to do... i even made a website about how i want my nose to be revised and just how i dont want my ugly droopy tip anymore (cuz i never had a droopy tip to begin with) :mad: why bother freak having consultation if your just gonna say "no , no , no no no" and then give them a completely different nose?
Taiwanese doctors say "you cant have exactly the same as the nose in the picture"
But korean doctors say "you can have anything"
I dont expect to be the exact same... but to be honest Dr hsu..
your nose u gave me looks like........ 5% of what i asked for. Can't even pass with a 50%.

Hey blissful09, is your first nose job done by Dr Hsu?
If so, is it a very big change or only subtle change?
Cause after reading the forums and my friend's story, all their noses have very minimal change after surgery with TaiWan's doctors and I am looking for a big drastic change..

Did you have rib rhino or silicon/goretex implant?

Thanks!
Perseverance and determination is the way to success. I need them~~~~

hi alex,

my nose is quite a change. Only because my nose before was like rainie yang style. i think i should have just used Ear cartilage.. and not rib.
Another thing... i was told i can hide it with my bra... but i can;t... i saw on websites girls who use rib by a korean doctor they can ACTUALLY hide there scar mark with there bra. The korean girl wrote it's because the korean doctors have this high-tech thingy to find the perfect rib. But i guess in taiwan they dont use the latest technology in rib finding? So my scar is placed under my bikini line...i can't wear a bikini anymore..... i regret going to taiwan. I wish i went to korea now. Not to say Dr Hsu is the worse Dr in Taiwan, i sincerely think he is the best.. and i wouldn't have went to any other doctor. But i wish he would listen to his clients more. Sometimes what he may find good.. it's not what others fine good... it's cultural difference.. and i'm paying him to understand what i want, yet it's not working.. i feel like im stuck against a wall because of my budget.... and going to korea is more expensive when i just should have went the first time.

Hi omega, thanks for the reply and suggestion. I was on Artwoods' website yesterday and was not satisfied or convinced that they're good.

i'm aiming for angelababy/dawn yang eyes .. do you have any recommendations as to who to go to? i'm seriously so stuck its starting to irritate me. was thinking of going back to my other doctor if i can't find a good enough doctor. please help!


I dont really recommend going for eyes like DY, AB i am not sure, never really look at her photos that close. Medial epicanthoplasty + high parallel crease but this look is not natural at all. Epicanthoplasty can cause too much sclera(white) too be exposed and the carancula (the red part) . Again high parallel crease on asian face looks unnatural too and can look quite artificial. Unless you dont mind putting on makeup all the time and wearing those contact lens that enlarge the iris.
To sum it up, look good with makeup on photo but in real life is another thing. Again i nv see your pic the above is just generalisation


sorry to interupt but i agree with you. Medical epi + high parallel crease is not natural at all. Pls reconsider. Imagine if u removed ur contact lens, ur iris will look so small as compared to your own eye just like a cat eye with tiny iris. It really weird. I once consider medical epi to open my eyes but heard so much about bad scaring if the doc is not experienced. Now I am more interested in lateral canthoplasty instead. anyone has any experience or comments on it?
