The rest of the docs will be too shunned off by my super piggy nose.
I am checking with Dr. Kao for his next earliest appt and I'm waiting for his reply.
By the way, who knows which doc to visit for calf reduction?
I was thinking that since I will be going taiwan, might as well target the major areas first.
Anyone care to share?
Heard that you are looking for a surgeon to do calf reduction. Me too!
Understand there's a surgeon Dr Jong in Taiwan who does it n also a popular surgeon in Korea who does it. Dr Jong seems to charge a little cheaper but its not so much the cost that is bothering me. Its the surgery itself which scares me as it involved the removal of partial leg muslces.
But the reviews from those who have done it via this Korean surgeon or Dr Jong are relatively good.
Also the recovery time is a bit long say maybe around 2 to 3 months.
The other thing is one would need to stay about 14 days in korea for the surgery n this is also one part that is hindering me from doing it.
Are you keen to go for the Calf Reduction surgery?
I've actually consulted Dr Kao about the calves. He suggested botox as muscle reduction may result in complications.
I thought so when it comes to muscle reduction. What about you?
I have already tried Botox years ago on my calves n to me, it didnt work for me. Or if there was, the results must have been barely noticeable, if any.
Also if im not wrong, you would need alot of botox to be injected into the calves cos the muscles there are big unlike those on your face. And i believe i did have lots of botox injected into my calves unless those are still not enuf.
Anyway i have tried a few times n i have given up on that already n aint going to waste any more $$$ on using botox for calves.
There is a thread in this forum on Calves Reduction n you might want to check it out.
From what i know, i havent heard of any surgeon in Singapore who is able to handle this surgery. You can read alot of reviews in Purse Forum n alot of people went to Dr Park (if i remember his name correctly) in Korea n a few went to Dr Jong in Taiwan. Dr Jong's charges are lower if im correct but im more concerned on the skills, etc.
From those reviews, those people who have gone to Dr Park n Dr Jong are happy with their results n patients from even USA, UK, etc were flying to Dr Park for the surgery.
Some of them said their only regret was that they didnt do this surgery earlier! It makes me so tempted although it certainly scares the wits out of me cos it involves removing part of the leg muscles n i wonder whether it would affect the movements, walking etc.
I checked with a couple of those patients who have gone for the surgery in the forum n all were every encouraging n they said they do not regret at all going for this operation.
What do you think? Are you game to go for this surgery?
