For those who used ear cartilage for bridge, do you like the results one year or more later? What's the percentage of resorption? Would you have used rib instead?

blephorplasty or something is for Double eyelid surgery

Whats the eye surgery that changes your eye shape to make them wider and rounder? (not the eyelid but width/length) the one Xiaxue found soo extremely painful that she screamed... the one where the needles injections goes below your eye not on the eylid.

Levator surgery probably.
Xiaxue had epicanthoplasty.
I had above both before and although I didn't notice a difference after each, there's a difference when I compared my photos now with the photos I took before the surgeries.

Hi everyone, I'm back from Taiwan. I did rhinoplasty(with rib) and sliding genioplasty with Dr Kao. For those worried about travelling alone, the post recovery process was quite managable in my case.

The most pain I experienced was where the rib was removed right under my breast. It was a little painful especially when you had to get up from the bed for the 1st couple of days after surgery. The pain is like a soreness after doing a massive amount of push-ups the day before. My advice is not to sit up directly using your tummy muscles, rather just roll to your side to avoid pulling the stitches. I also could not eat solid foods for about a week after the surgery because of the numbness in the jaw.

It's only been 12 days after my surgery and there is still some tightness in the lower front teeth. My nose is still swollen and will continue to deswell continuously for another 4 to 6 weeks according to Dr Kao . I'm trying to be rational but as of now, I'm really regretting both surgeries. I look like a bird with the new nose. Furthermore, I feel that the sliding genioplasty enlongated my already long face and everything just looks off. For those who did rhinoplasty with rib, can you advise how long it took to deswell so that it looks relatively normal and unlike a bird...

i had pretty the same feeling as u when i had my surgeries done...
i thought i looked like a witch...n the chin thing was juz weird... didnt make my chin look longer or projected...
however, the chin has become more natural n can see the shape of it about 2 weeks post-op.
for the nose...i think it was about 1month post-op or more that i feel that my nose is more humanised lol... of coz... i do look like normal person after surgery but that juz the way i felt about myself only.

3 months post-op now... i giv 8.5/10 for the results for the nose +chin... however i find that i look diff on camera than in real life lol... i still find that i look kinda weird on camera@@ maybe its juz my face is a bit chubby thats y ...

my advice is drink more pineapple juice or eat pineapple
i kept drinking n eating those for about a month, and i think it has helped quite alot.

takecare!

Change of plans! I've booked tickets to arrive in Taipei October 13th. I think I will stay for a bit more than a week. Please, does anyone want to share a room or hang out together? We can take care of each other :)!
I'll be doing nose surgery with Dr. Kao and hopefully Dr. Su can fit me in for eye surgery too
I am female... so preferably a girl.... sorry

Hi tinanana, thanks for the encouraging words. Am glad to hear that you're happy with your results. I think much of the doubt/unhappiness I'm experiencing now is mostly shock. It is just really jarring to not recognize myself when I look at the mirror anymore. Healing wise, I think I'm quite lucky in the sense that I didn't experience any bruising at all. My chin was quite swollen at first but has since gone down completely.

Lastly just to clarify, I still feel that Dr Kao is a very skilled plastic surgeon. He cares about his patients as well. He shuffles between 2 hospitals but still made an effort to stop by Kangning apartment in the evening to see how I was recovering.

vanilla99 may i ask what phone number you're calling? for some reason i can't reach her at all.
when will you go to taipei? try finding a buddy on here to go together, who speaks mandarin.
otherwise just book a consultation first, and body language when you're there?
