Hi everyone, I am new to the forum. In fact, this is the first forum I ever joined. I skimmed through the information regarding plastic surgery in Taiwan.
I've conducted a great amount of research and I decided to go to Taipei for plastic surgery. I want to get rhinoplasty and blepharoplasty with Dr. Kao. I have not sent him my pictures for evaluation yet, but he has answered some of my questions. I was wondering if anybody who had surgery with Dr. Kao can answer some questions for me. I would appreciate any feedback, information, and input from anyone.
I am half Korean and half Caucasian and live in the U.S. (Georgia- it will be a long flight to Taipei). I have a little epicanthal fold that I want to remove, increase the size of my eyelid crease (left crease is larger than the right), and I want the tip of my nose refined. I want a high eyelid crease and I also do not want to use my rib for my nose. I am fine with ear or nose cartilage. My husband and I plan on going to Taipei the beginning of December and stay for 2 weeks.

1) Does Dr. Kao perform regular eyelid surgery (not double eyelid)? How about epicanthoplasty? I really prefer to have only one surgeon for the sake of convenience.

2) Is it possible to achieve a refined and pointy nose tip without using rib?

3) Does Dr. Kao take into consideration the wants of the patient, or does he just do what he thinks is best for the patient? I understand that facial features must be balanced with a person's face, but I also don't want him to just do what he wants without discussing it with me first.

4) Does the Kangning Service Apartment have internet access?

5) Did you guys receive a consultation in person with Dr. Kao before the surgery? He said that he only does consultations twice a week and the times are limited. So does he basically assess everything with pictures?

Thanks in advance!
