my eyes swell la.. took leave to be away went back to work on 11th day and remove stitches on 10th day.

yes take out excess fats and excess skin an sew back.. LOL.. i plan to do my eyes once in 5yrs? depending on droopiness cos im born with droopy eyes... doc said the shape of my eyes droop down so he cant do much.. poor doc.. :p most pple's eyes are not symmetrical to start with, u can tell the doc to cut it such that the difference is not tat big.. my SO's mum say with a little imperfections then will look perfect... which i agree.. then wil look not so plastic moreover i sharpened all my features..

i didnt do lower bleph cos i dun have eye bags, but my customer who also had PS told me we can do only max 2 times lower bleph for ur whole life... and her doc was WW.. so dun do tat too young.. :)

Lower blepharoplasty can be done more than once
By William Portuese, MD - Seattle Facial Plastic Surgeon

A lower blepharoplasty can be done usually no more than twice in a lifetime of a person because of the fear of changing the shape of the eyelids. The goal of lower blepharoplasty surgery is primarily to remove the fat pads and bags underneath the lower lids, and then if needed, to pinch a small portion of excess skin which is present at repose, not at animation.

Lower lid blepharoplasty can be repeated successfully
By Michael A. Persky, MD - Los Angeles Facial Plastic Surgeon

There is only so much skin in the lower lid, and only so much fat. The majority of patients only need one lower blepharoplasty, some may have a second or revision, but it is certainly not an area where multiple procedures are indicated. Good luck and be well.

You have to do a completely different operation each time.
By George J. Beraka, MD - Manhattan Plastic Surgeon

A revision of the lower eyelids is not that unusual, and very rarely someone might need a third operation.

But the key thing to understand is that a "lower blepharoplasty" is not just one operation that you keep doing over and over again. There are about 10 different ways to operate on the lower eyelids. Usually, in a revision, you try to UNDO what was done before.

For example, if too much fat was removed, you can replace it or reposition it. If the lower lids were pulled down, you bring them back up with a canthopexy or by making the lower lids shorter. If a lot of fine skin wrinkling was left, you can make the lower lids smoother with laser resurfacing (and sometimes a little Botox).

************************************************************


Each Additional Eyelid Surgery Adds More Risk

By Mark Berkowitz, MD - Sterling Heights Oculoplastic surgeon

Surgery can be repeated on the eyelids more than once. Each time the eyelids are operated on scar tissue forms. This scar tissue can pull the lid down ( retraction or ectropion). This is more likely to occur if the surgery is performed through a skin incision ( transcutaneous) versus through the conjunctiva ( transconjunctival). When the incision is made through the skin there is a septum that becomes shortened which can retract the lid. Most patients that have eyelid surgery usually will not need a touch up for at least 10 years. Preventive measures are best. So chose an Ocular Plastic or skilled Cosmetic Surgeon the first time you have eyelid surgerywhich can avoid early reoperations.

Oh, glad to hear that.

I just took out my wisdom tooth at alexandra hospital and the doc, Dr silva, also specialise in chin implants.

I was wondering if i should do it at alexandra hospital or find a private doc like Dr A.t. you mentioned.

Seems like all of you chose private doc/overseas doc, any reason for that??

Hi all,

Chin Implant

Postby mandeline Yap » Tue, 27 Mar 2012 4:44 pm

Hi,

Just want to share this info about chin implant. I'm still in dilemma whether do intra oral or external but after read this review from many docs I decided to do external. See below reviewed.



Chin Incision

Chin implants can be undertaken through either intraoral or external incisions. The infection rate through the intraoral incision is slightly higher than with the external incision but still fairly minimal. With the intraoral incision you do run a slightly greater risk of changing the way that your chin moves but in some cases this can be advantageous. The external approach leaves a small scar on the chin but this is usually well hidden under the chin. In the end, there is no clear... more

D.J. Verret, MD
Dallas Facial Plastic Surgeon

External vs internal chin implant approach

I have done over 1000 chin implants in 30 years and over 95% have been by the external approach. The reason for this is the placement of the implant along the inferior border of the chin is much better via external approach. The implant is also more stable this way and tends not to drift upwards when healing. As a side the chance of infection is reduced. The 1 cm submental scar is very hard to find after 6-12 months

Hi. Need help from those who had done their chin with Dr Nara, any idea if he uses screws & drill? Tried emailing him but no reply. Dr Chi replied, but I am not very comfortable with the idea of drilling. Lol.

Any kind souls can share their experience ? Thanks in advance.
