Have anyone had a sucessful rhinoplasty with Dr Chuang frm Wish Clinic?

I have been trying to email him for more information but no aval.



Why don't you try phoning? You will get to talk to the manageress.

As for email, you can email again....that was what I did and I got a reply a week or 2 later.


Dr chaung replys EMAIL very slow... well known. haha.. 2 weeks - 3 weeks. if urgent call his staff nurse for help.


Thanks ladies... I have been waiting for months already. Perheps i shld juz call him then. I have done epi surgery with him b4 and im happy with it.



hi wishing! can you tell me more about Dr. Chaung? like the process of the surgery and how he treats his patients. and also how much did he charge for epi? i've been thinking of doing it for a long time, but have yet to do anything as i am afraid i might be at the center of attention when i go back to school with new eyes. :?


Hey girl, generally Dr Chuang is a nice and patient doctor. The surgery is totally painless but do expect some swelling and bruising for the next 1 wk.

He charged me 20 000 for the epi surgery.

However my epi still have a fainting scar after 6mths. Hope my infor will helps you. :)


ohh... so how long did you stay in taiwan for that surgery? also, how long will you be walking around with stiches around your eyes before the doctor removes them?


I have stayed there for 1 week. Yes, i still walk around with my super bruising eye but wear a black sunglasses all day.

The doctor will remove the stitches on Day 7. Then i fly back to Singapore straight after the stitch removal. :)


Hey you mentioned 20 000 was it in Singapore dollars or Taiwan dollars?


its in taiwan dollars of course! which is aprox $900 sing

Hi.... I did my epi with dr Chuang also. I do have scar but im okie with it.
Going to do a scar reducing injection... Will let u know if it helps.

Care to share ur pic with me?


Scar reducing injection? Where is this injection offered?
Do you have more details about this injection?


Alaxis Aesthetic clinic does provide post operation treatment for Wish Clinic patients, that why i went to him. After consultation, the doc said mine is not scar, more of a excess skin. Im still waiting for Dr Chuang reply. Might be going back to taipei to do a revision if necessary.


hey dear, do you mind sharing your pictures?
will there be a chance where the scar becomes a keloid? (the BCG kind) cos i am prone to scarring, and i hv a bcg. i want to do it, but im quite freaked out, if the scar will ever grow bigger or become worse and plus im not working so i dont have the means to go back for any revision within the next few months sld anything go wrong... :?

i've never done it nor any kind of procedure before but according to dr. eddie chiang's website, its around 25k-35k for lipo method and 30k-50k for incision method.

i have finally confirmed & would be going back to Dr kao for revision on my nose. briefly, I have not had an ideal recovery & I have had quite alot of scar tissues formed at my supratip& tip area, thus my tip has not reduced to the 'expected' size. Dr Kao said this is normally caused by smoking (blood vessels constrict). Irony is that I had quit smoking prior before surgery & have not smoked since...

has anyone here on the board gone back for revision & what was the choice of sedation used?

He suggested local for this revision & he described it as a simple revision (to remove the scar tissues & might have to take ear cartilage to tweak the tip).

However, I am now super freaked out after reading treehugger's post about her experience with using local.

I have had previous experiences with local when I was doing my eyes & I would wake up halfway & had to endure the tormenting pain throughout the surgery. I would really hate to go through it again...

would picking GA be a wise choice? my concern is that going through GA is not a good option as it is stressful to the body too....

advice anyone?

back then, the docs told me that it should be the eyes 1st. best to confirm with your doctor/s.

for me, i did my nose 1st, then 2 days later, my eyes - did not check with doctors, only realised it was planned wrong when i was there with the respective doctors, but changing the dates would not be possible so the docs had to make do with it.

I didn't mean to scare you. If I were to do it over again, I would still choose local.

no worries... in fact I'm glad you shared your experience (thanks!). hope you are healing well! :)))

I did more reading abt local anaethetic for rhinoplasty. If the patient wakes up halfway & feels pain, it means the one tt administer the LA had screwed up (did not give enough in consideration to patient's history, weight etc). Patient should not feel the pain, even if he/she woke up halfway. Another reason was that the doc is stinging on cost, so insufficient LA is administered (high possibility for private practices).

something to note if you are opting for LA.

missynathan - Yes, the surgery cost is ard 900 SGD. I have consult another doctor is singapore and have confirmed its not scarring... more of excess skin. Have emailed Dr Chuang for advice, he recommended me to do a nose job to solve the problem. But i am not doing it. It is not that serious, unless u look real close. Intend to do a nose fillers to enhance my looks instead. I believe im just unlucky.

I wasn't really sleeping either. Just felt really loopy @_@

Has anyone ever bumped their new nose? I was at the gym and I forcefully bumped a barbell up and it hit my nose. Guess i'm just not used to have a bigger nose. I'm so paranoid. I've been touching it all day now ahah
