Hi pinkyice! ** wave wave**

just to share, i went to Dr Jong when i was in taipei last nov.
He asked me whether i like to go salon every 2 weeks to perm my lashes, I said "No", then he said better don't do it in that case.

Initially I was very keen too but pinkyice also told me the same thing.

Alas, who don't want natural eyelashes growing free & in abundance but the result is not as perfect as we envisioned, it needs lifetime grooming.
The way the lashes grow out is also not in a neat manner like your natural eyelashes, it depends on the angle the doctor insert the hair follicle.

We can trim ourselves but we still need to perm as it'll droop like natural hair.

I wrote to a clinic in BKK too, i asked the doctor so what if we just trim very short & don't perm every 2 weeks to save $$ & hassle, i'm thinking perhaps perming only on special occasions or maybe every 3 months but NOT every 2 weeks, then he replied " then what's the point of transplanting if u don't leave it long & perm it" LOL.

take a look at this, i'm sure no one will grow till so long but the effect will not be the same as putting falsies, so perfect.

Hello angelfern :wave:
If there is a surgery to reverse the transplant, I will gladly do it.
I was just too obsessed with long eyelashes and now that I know how to use false eyelashes, I am totally kicking myself.

Hi Pinkyice,

Since you have already gone thru so much pain and done it, how about making full use of the long eyelashes? Many of us would love to have long eyelashes! :) I would want too but after hearing about your experiences about the pain, i dont want to go thru the surgery.

Are you able to trim those transplanted lashes to much shorter so that you dont have to keep trimming n perhaps trim once in around 2 weeks when the lashes grow till too long?

Do the transplanted lashes always droop down when they grow long or would some curl up and some droop down?

Easier said than done.
Even when I trim my lashes to the shortest, in a week or more, they are very long again...argh
And they don't look pretty when long...they look like spider legs.
All the transplanted lashes droop...not a single one will curl.

Hi Pinkyice,

I think i know what you mean now. Its really a waste after going thru the pain and hassle and the lashes dont grow the way we want it. Did you tell Dr Jong of the problems/issues you face and does he have any solution for you? Did he say whether the rest of his patients who went thru this procedure have the same issue too? such as when the transplanted lashes grow long, they look like spider legs n not smooth like normal lashes?

Im surprised as to why the transplanted lashes grow so fast. Cos the hairs on our head dont even grow that fast and maybe like a bit more than 1cm in a month?

One of my girlfriends stayed in the above hostel when she's in Taipei.
She said it's good and she made a lot of friends there too.


Any other comments on this?

Any private bathroom for this?

Nose revision

Postby regretful28 » Mon, 24 Jan 2011 7:51 pm

Hi, I am new to this forum, been reading it for weeks from morning till night, and finally finished all the post. I should have read it before my nose surgery and I totally regret I did not do that. I just had a nose surgery one month plus ago and I totally regret it to the max. I don't want to describe much, but I went thru the worst surgery, after care service, doctor attitude and all. After gone thru all the pain and having the money spent, I got a worst than my before nose. I been crying and sad for more than a month and basically no mood to do anything at all. I really missed my old nose, I shouldn't have done anything to it as it is perfectly fine and yet I am being greedy and hope to enhance it a bit more. I am to blame myself for making such decision or choose the wrong surgeon. Initially I was thinking to live life with no regrets and do whatever i feel like doing, or I will be whole life thinking if I should go enhance my nose. If I can turn back time, I will never ever touch my nose, and after reading all the revision nose job etc from the forum, it really scared me off. I am scare to do one revision after another, and I want to take out all the ear cartilage that inserted to my nose despite being the fact that I wasted a piece of my ear cartilage. Will somebody who done their nose with ear cartilage let me know if it is possible to remove the ear cartilage from my nose, cos it is not only in my tip but my bridge as well. If I take it out, will my nose return back to normal like how it used to be?? As I remembered the surgeon was like sawing my nose bone before he insert the cartilage, I don't know if he has saw away my original nose bone structure. Please do not ask me to go and ask my surgeon cos he is totally ignorant to my complaint and ignored me totally. I am really depressed and sad now, and I am very scared to go thru another surgery and will never get back my nose. I searched the whole internet but I cannnot seems to find anyone who take out ear cartilage implant fully. Can someone let me know?

Actually Dr Jong did not encourage eyelashes transplantation...I had done some research beforehand and read about the pros and cons (more cons than pros) but I insisted because I was just too obsessed with long eyelashes that all the reservations I had just flew out the window.
And I hadn't expect the eyelashes to grow so fast that I need to trim it once a week...I was thinking along the lines of once every 2 weeks or so.
Maybe it's just me because there are girls who are willing to spend time and money to trim their eyelashes once a week but I am not one of them.

Hi regretful28,

Where did you get your nose done, by which surgeon? Could it be just one month after op, might really take somemore time to see result..

I'm sure the surgeon can remove the ear cartilage with no problem. It won't be the same as before if he sawed your bone (or maybe messed with your septal cartilage)

I wanted to correct my slighlty upturned nose, but now only I realised that to correct upturn nose, most of the surgeon will choose septal catilage to correct it, instead of ear cartilage. Hence, it is so confirmed that my ear cartilage will be wasted. Because now my nose is more upturned than before with bigger nostrils and my tip is basically gone. So I am sure this is not because of the swelling, as my bridge now is so uneven and got a hump on the right side, this may be due to swelling but i guess my nose tip shape will be like this even when all the swelling subside. And after been through the operation, I think I choose the wrong surgeon, because I did not do proper research back then. I will write out what I had been through at a later date as I am just too depressed to say in detail. Hence, revision seems like a must for me now, and i can't wait to do it. But I am so worried if I can ever get back my nose. Any good surgeons that you guys can recommend for ear cartilage removal surgery/ revision? Also if I am going to wait for 6 mths for revision, which advised by most of the surgeons, won't the ear cartilage bond with my nose cartilage or skin the longer it is inside and thus, harder to remove?
