This is my personal experience about BK Dongyang and I would definitely tell you to save your SAVE YOUR MONEY and you are better off doing it at other clinics. The clinic is beyond overrated and I was just foolish to have not done all my research before heading to Korea and spending so much money (10K USD) where this money would be much better spent at other clinics WITH BETTER RESULTS.
So this Doctor does this in country consultation in Singapore, and during my brief consultation with Singapore he told me all the ridiculously nice things which I found hard to believe. But being naïve as this is my first time embarking on plastic surgery, I believed everything he said. Who hasn’t heard that Korea is the Plastic surgery capital of the world??? He told me I needed work on the following areas as recommended: (i) Rhinoplasty/Alarplasty/; (ii) Blepharoplasty. After he finished, he tried to UPSELL. He told me that a facelift would help with my acne scars. As mentioned, as this is my first time experimenting with surgery and his words was like the bible back than.
After much consideration, I took the plunge and paid the initial deposit to fly to BK Dongyang for the surgery. The clinic told me they offered free accommodation. I informed them of my impending trip, upon arriving at their free accommodation guess what there was noone attending to their accommodation. Mind you I was tired after a 12 hour plane ride and I kept calling the clinic assistant to come open the door for me to get in. When he arrived, he looked dazed and confused and did not even know that I was arriving on that day. After settling in the room which is really a tiny room with just a TV, the assistant told me he would pick me up next morning to go to BK for my surgery.
Next morning came and the assistant did not TURN UP. Well he did turn up, but he was half hour late. Than when I reached the clinic for final consultation, HORROR OF ALL HORROR- Doctor told me there was an up charge from what was agreed upon from our email correspondence. So I ended up paying 10K USD instead of the lower amount we agreed upon in our email.
Now let’s get to the review of my operations:
1. Rhinoplasty/Alarplasty : Well this surgery I didn’t feel a thing as I was completely knocked out and went to sleep. But let’s get to when I woke up from the surgery, and looked into the mirror my nose was crocked and look worse than my original nose. What was worse is that I couldn’t breathe properly after my rhinolasty for 4-5 days. I tried calling doctor and he said my breathing will come back. I actually went online to do further research, and taking into account there may be intial breathing problems from rhinoplasty mine was serious enough that I had to wake up many times in a night just to catch some air. Upon another consult with doctor, he insisted that I had breathing problems before my operation which I found hard to believe. And to be perfectly honest, it looked like I didn’t even had rhinoplasty as it was too natural. Very unsatisfied!!! Emailed, call him for review, no reply. So if you would like a hit and run, go for BK DongYang
2. Blepharoplasty/Ptosis correct: Lets be fair, the intial results was good. I liked it a lot and my mono single eyelid were finally away for good. But after 6 months, my eye lid drop back to single eyelid. WTF!!!!!!! Doctor didn’t stitch it properly enough to have it stick and I paid 10K to have back my single eyelid. I have even attached pictures of the final results back to doctor asking for an explanation, and he said I have heavy lids to begin with.WTF AGAIN!!!!
So upon further research, I finally did all my revisions in Thailand for half that price. And I am definitely much happier with the customer service and accuracy that the Doctors in Thailand have managed to help me achieve. So in conclusion, more money doesn’t mean better. Don’t believe all this hype. BE YOUR OWN JUDGE!!!!!!! Wasted 10K USD but great lesson learnt.
