taiwan forums doesn't say much about him and I don't know anybody who went

but he seems good at doing ptosis work from his website


I came across in the TW forum about Dr Yang..but it was early this yr...he was impressed with Dr Yang in his post...yes the Dr Yang from Artwood...
If i rem correctly, he did dbl eyelid and epi with Dr Yang.

Hi all,

Just did my nose with Dr Kao last week. Since noone has experience with him here yet so thought I can share mine here.

Dr Kao has really good knowledge of the nose and is very confident in his work. He is as friendly as he sounds like in his emails and gives very detailed consultation. Discussion was almost 2hrs and he makes sure there is mutual understanding on the nose shape I want with pictures of models. You can bring your own pics but Dr Kao has tons of model pics taken from magazines. I was quite surprised to see he also printed out my photo beforehand and he also does photo imaging so I can see how my nose looks like. I like that he takes the consultation professionally and seriously.

This is my 3rd revsion. I did it twice with Dr Chuang and the reason for this revision is due to a deviated implant from the 2nd revision. Exact reason I am still not sure cos both Dr C and Kao had different views. Dr C feels the deviation is slight only and I can keep it that way, not necessary to go through revision to correct it. Faintz.. who will not mind having a crooked nose? Honestly, he is too busy and consultation with him is stressful cos he always has another surgery to rush for and limited time to talk.

So I went ahead with Dr Kao. Did rib cartilage and the surgery took around 7hrs. Was hospitalised for 2 nights due to the GA.
Rib hurts slightly especially 1st 2 nights, pain was terrible when getting off the bed and coughing. I stayed at Kang Ning hospital and the service were quite limited. Better to have someone to take care of you during the stay cos nurses there are different from Sg. They only do their job like changing drips, take blood pressure. If you need help to get off the bed or to go toilet, they are relunctant to help you. Food is not included in the hospital stay uness you want to order from them at additional cost. But there is a 7-eleven below if you can walk there, otherwise it is better to have someone to help you get food.

Results so far is very good and I'm happy with my nose now. But it is only one week and swelling still so have to wait longer to see the final results. No regrets going to Dr Kao. He has very good post op follow up too, quite caring doctor. Comes to the ward everyday to check everything is alright and after I came bk to sg, he emails me first to ask how is my nose doing and any probs.

Sorry for the long posts, but hope these info can give a better idea to those who are still considering which docs to go to in Taiwan. :)

Thanks for sharing such valuable information. It's unfortunate to hear that your rhinoplasty procedures with dr. chuang had not gone smoothy. What materials did you use to augument your nose? Did you get any alarplasty or tiplasty done?

After hearing a few negative results from dr.chuang, i'm trying to look for a different plastic surgeon now
