^ You don't HAVE to cut ear and/or rib for rhinoplasty.

You can use Silicone, goretex, silitex implants too.

Anything natural will always beat anything artificial.

I did mine with dr tseng. I did 3 pieces of augmentation rhinoplasty (三段式隆鼻) Gortex in between the brows . chimera implant for the bridge and ear cartilage for the tip .

i've emailed dr.kao about alar base reduction (sill excision). anyone knows if he does that surgery? it seems like most are interested in ribbing and tip plasty...

Is anyone interested in going with me to taiwan during december or november? it would be best if your a girl, so that we can share hotel rooms...

Hi people. I am back in sg from my surgery with dr kao so just thought i can give a detailed update on what happened.

I arrived on Thursday n checked myself in to kang ning apartment n walked my way to kang ning hospital which is next door from the apartment to look for dr kao. THen the staff told me dr kao is not in!! They told me he is in only on Wednesday.

I panicked and i called his other clinic and dr kao said he will rush down to kang ning to see me. Which i am very thankful. Half an hour later he was there n he brought me to his clinic in Kang Ning, spent around 40min to explain to me. I wanted to do rhino n medpor chin implant but he told me sliding genio will suit me better but i wasn't ready to go for sliding genio so i went ahead with rhino only.

He schedule the operation to tomorrow 4pm n asked me to wait for his call. So on Friday i went shopping and came back to the apartment at 2pm++, nervous n excited. The staff called n told me the operation has been changed to 4:30pm, so i went to kang ning at 4:30pm. I went to level 3 and was instructed to go to level 1 to register and pay for the operation first. Everything was very messy and even make me more nervous about the operation. So i register n paid n make my way to level 3 the operation theater.

The nurse poked my veins 3 times as my veins are really tiny n thin and they apologized for making me go though this again n again. The nurses were so kind. Dr Kao was in another operation so i have to wait for him. I think it was 6pm++ before dr kao came out n i was brought into the Operation table to lay down...

I was on LA with a little bit of sedation. Dr Kao and another doctor were there and they told me i might drift to sleep n they will wake me up after the operation. Strangely i didn't fell asleep, i was awake the entire time, i can hear them cutting me and pulling my cartilage! It wasn't painful just that my head was very uncomfortable on the bed so while they were working on my nose i was adjusting my head slightly and in the end i blurted out that my head was painful and dr kao asked the nurse to give me a pillow to make me more comfortable. Half way through the surgery i felt the pain was creeping up and i asked for more LA to be injected...Dr Kao said he has given me quite a lot so i didn't know whether he injected more ...

After the operation the other doctor asked whether i want to see my nose and i said "YES" . he laughed and said i was too excited that i couldn't even sleep during the operation.I was pushed out n make to rest for half an hour , the nurse gave me a cold compress to put on my forehead.

I went back to Kang Ning with a mask and the mask was soaking blood n dripping blood when i reached the apartment lift....

I went back to kang ning apartment n immediately lay on the bed. For the entire night i was busy wiping blood that was constantly flowing out of my nose. I was worried if this continue i might die tomorrow due to loss of blood..llol :D So i email dr kao in the middle of the night to ask whether this is normal and even google while on bed about whether is it normal to bleed after operation.
Dr Kao replied its normal and google assured me its normal as well...


I couldn't sleep the entire night and stupid me told sleeping with your head elevated means lying flat .........the next morning i swell like a pig. Luckily the bleeding stops.......

On the fourth day, i went back to Dr Kao clinic at the other hospital "San Jun Zong Yi Yuan", the nurse did a light therapy on me to reduce the swelling n dr kao with his two understudies removed the cast on my nose. After seeing my reflection in the mirror i was super depressed.............and is understudies laughing didn't make it better, i felt they were laughing at me..maybe i was paranoid but i was in a totally lousy mood.

I thought i could handle the post op recovery period but apparently i cannot cos my nose is huge and bigger than jackie chan.......

On the seventh day dr kao asked me to go back to his clinic to remove my stitches from my nose. It hurts like a b!tch!!! The weather was cold but i was breaking out in cold sweats and tears kept flowing out from my eyes..........

Dr Kao told me my nose will deswell at least 1/3 more ......which i think it still wasn't enough to make it the size i wanted. But he n the nurse said my nose looks good.........


Oh well i dunno, its too early for me to judge i am in my 9th day of post op and hopefully my nose will look better as the days passed.


My next stop will be sliding genio in Thailand. Hope my review helps!

It only been 1.5 month since my surgery. Cost NT$90K
If you want faster response you can call them and his assistant will
answer all your enquires. Will have swelling for the first few weeks.
But after 1 month will look natural. 15 days is enough,I was there for 13 days.
