No he didn't. He proceeded with the operation half an hour after I saw him lol. he only asked whether I had any medical history.

wow, no full body check is done beforehand.. means its quite risky as it is a GA surgery.. Guggi, is it comfortable for you to show pics main on the scar only?

Hi Boii18 not bad! The nose surgery really changed the whole profile of your face... How much did he charge you for the nose? I believe its tip work with implant to the bridge? Seeing your nose I'm pretty tempted to try Tokai...

Thinking of doing cheekbone shaving and buccal fat removal too...

How long did you take to recover?meaning go out on the streets?

I have email Dr Pat and told him the procedure that I'm interested in but it seem that the cost he quoted are not really cheap. Hmm.. How can i ask him for a discount rate?

Thanks for your mail and interest in our clinic.
I would like to inform you that the risk factors involve in each procedure of Arm tuck, Mandibular reduction, tiplasty and alarplasty are the same such as bleeding, infection, nerve trauma, scar etc. which is controllable. The scar of Arm tuck is running from armpit to elbow, if there is no hypertrophy it is rarely seen and we never have complaint of scar from patients including scar from tiplasty (mostly in the nostrils).

The lady in the page below had tipplasty but I did not match the before and after.

Could you please send photos of your face in front, oblique, lateral and from below up views for evaluation and more personal information; age, weight, height, health and medical history, allergies and whether you drink or smoke etc. including?

The estimate costs are as follow;

Arm tuck USD 1,800 -2,000

Mandibular reduction USD 1,800 -2,000

tiplasty USD 800

alarplasty USD 600

I appreciate your assistance in providing the requested information.



To prepare yourself for surgery I would suggest you to complete physical examination with pre operative lab test in your country if there is any abnormality detection you could be treated earlier.

The lab tests required are;

1. Vital sign; Blood pressure, pulse rate, temperature and respiration rate.

2. CBC (Count Blood Cell) , bleeding and clotting time, platelets count

3. CXR (Chest X-ray )

4. EKG, ECG (Electrocardiogram)

5. Fasting blood sugar (FBS), HIV, Hepatitis (HbSAg.B, C)

6. BUN, Creatinine, Electrolyte

7. Liver function test ; Albumin, Globulin, SGOT,SGPT, Alkaline phosphatase & Total Billirubin, Cholesterol, Triglyceride, HDL-C, LDL-C

8. Urine Examination (Urinalysis)

These lab tests can be done in Thailand but I would not recommend since any abnormality contraindicate to surgery will causes you miss the surgery if it can not be treated in time.

Please do not take Aspirin, Hormones, vitamins, herbs and no smoking 2 weeks before surgery.

Boii18 u look great and your face loooooks so different now with the nose bridge really highlighting your eyes.

Don't mind me saying but the other surgeries you quoted in your signature e.g. cheekbone/browbone/mandible reduction would actually make you look like a girl?

You already look quite androgynous already but I'm not sure of the look you're trying to achieve :)

Thanks, he charged me less than $2000 for first nose op which included tipplasty. For second ( silicone implant change ), he charged me in hundreds because I did tgt with other surgery.

Cheekbone shaving Im considering maybe next year.

This year surgical procedures would end with a hair removal IPL and chin implant.. Quite good result this year ;-)

My gf commented I look shuai , mix and good now then my gan didi say I very cute and jap/caucasian. haha, how flattered.

Hi everyone, signed up as I want to know more about jaw reduction. Is jaw reduction the same as zygomatic reduction? if i wanna shorten the width of facial length, what is it called? Why are the korea drs charging higher than thai drs? is it sth abt their quality or bcuz exchange rate in Korea is higher?
planning to do in two yrs time. anyone doing any procedures ard tat time too?
wanna know more abt the cost, downtimes etc.
*btw, why there isnt any reccomendation for singapore drs on this surgery? I am very paranoid abt doing such complicated procedure oversea... thus would appreciated that those of you who have done it before to share ur experiences... eg, do u need ppl to acc, how to go out, what to eat, days to stay in the country,total cost (includes flight, transport, procedure costs).... & yes safety plus language barrier... say do it in thailand but i knw nth abt the language:(
pardon me if i sound like a noob! i am in fact one... nvr done any surgical procedures and travel aboard alone too... :(
