Did my double eye-lid surgery with Doctor Chen on 02/01 and i'm really happy with the results.. It has been about 3 weeks post surgery and i'm glad that swelling has gone down by 80% :)

Can visit my blog for more information on my experiences..

Hi Germie,

Wow! You really look prettier after the DEL surgery! Congrats! :D

Your friends must have said so too? Was any of them not able to recognise you?

How much did you pay for the surgery + medicine etc?

Cheers.


Thanks babyangel11! They are able to recognise me and but all said that i look very different due to my bigger eyes.

Surgery itself cost NT25,000 so after conversion it is about S$1100.. The cost is inclusive of the consulation, surgery and aftercare (Medicine, ointment and cold compress)

Right now, i cannot wait to start on the application of scar removal cream to reduce the appearance of the mini scar on my eyelids.. :)



Hi Germie,

Wow! The rates are cheap n good results too! :D

How long is the mini scar on your eyelid? It should be very short, right?

Right decision made! :wink:


The scar is about 0.5cm.. I can easily cover it with concealer so not really visible..

Dr Chen told me that after one month, swelling will go down by 70-80%... Now it's a month post surgery and the swelling has gone by down 80%.. I can start using the scar removal cream tonight.. Once swelling goes down totally, crease will decrease in height too.. Many people who don't know me cannot tell that i went for surgery.. hahaha..

thank u all for the well wishes. my bleeding today is minimal and my gauze and splint is full of blood n my dried blood in my nose as well. i do not dare to clean my nose as today is only the second day. Nose feels super stuffy.

My nose is very big, much bigger compare to my pre operation nose..i really do hope its the swelling as i requested for a much smaller nose :shock: :shock:

i am flying off next Friday and i hope i can deswell until i am able to face the public!

Hi,
although I've never done rhinoplasty before, cant give u advice on how to take care of your nose, I did p.s alone before and I understand how you are feeling.
Please relax, calm down, and dont keep looking at the mirror.
You may be alone at the moment but your friends and family are all waiting for you back in Singapore.
Watch tv, read magazines whatever..just keep yourself occupied.
Keep telling yourself it will all be fine.
Hang on there babe! :)

Felt exactly the same too. I was scared and worried the first few weeks after my nose surgery.
I looked so weird and dfferent and felt regret doing my nose.I even start thinking of getting
a revision already !I felt horrible the first few weeks .But as weeks past by my nose change
bit by bit and they begin to look better. It been only 1 month since my surgery. Im only 60%
sastified with my new nose. Maybe now it still early to determine. Hopefully they will change to
look better.

trilogytwist, it is ok if you do not feel comfortable sharing

but can you tell us in detail about your experience with dr kao?

Why are you unsatsfied with your new nose? (I think all rib noses appear very big at first, but gradually settle down)

its too early for me to pass judgement on dr kao work. lets just say the recovery process is very difficult for me!! i did tip plasty n remove the hump on my nose.my main motive was actually a smaller nose which i still cant see now due to swelling

I'm planning to have my eyelids and nose surgery done in Taiwan. Problem is, I'm considering 2 different doctors at the same time.

I've emailed both Dr Kao and Dr Tsai. I'm contemplating to have my eyes done with Dr Tsai whereas nose with dr Kao. Both give me different explanations about my eyelids though. Somehow, I'm feeling more comfortable with Dr Tsai reply, hence explains why I'm considering him as well, but at the same time, I know that Dr Kao has been a renowned plastic surgeon, especially in rhinoplasty.

Any inputs are well appreciated. On a side note, anybody is going to Taiwan in June?
