dont worry about nose or lips. lips, you can apply terramycin. because its moisture based it will help to dissolve the sutures slightly. just keep your lips moisturised with terramycin. is antibiotic ointment. thnk dr yeap gave u that.

Hi boii18, thank for the reply and advices!

I think my swelling has subside a little and Im looking more like a 'normal' person now.
But my nose is really weird, it just doesn't match with my face.
Dr chi did alar and silicon implant for me but for alar, he did not CUT any fats for me, he squeeze the side of my nose to make it "narrower" and then stitch it for it to stay in place. Now my nose is ruined!
The tip is weird, extremely weird cause he basically just squeeze all my excess fats from the side to my already thick and bulbous tip, making it worse!
Life is a misery.

darling, a picture is worth a thousand words. send us a picture privately if you wish, and block out your eyes.

what you say doesn't make sense, at least with reference to nasal anatomy =)

you shd maintain communication with the doctor who did your surgery.

why not fly back to hatyai to get it removed? he shd remove it for you free.

and, it seems you are unhappy with the brow-bone and nose. what about the lips?

i was unhappy about my nose swelling for 1 month before it became better.

Just got back from visiting NUH.
The doc say it is possible to remove but the thing is it cost almost 4k to remove both my brow bone and nose implant.
I am going to cry, it is so expensive!

I thought it would be cheap but no..
Anyone know where could I remove just my nose implant at a cheaper cost?
I'm really desperate, I have not attended my school, everything is just a mess!!

you are still swollen....

Dr Chi has done many noses on this forum and the results are very nice. it is not possible that he shows inconsistency in judgement with you, unless you forced him to do a larger sized implant or procedure that he said you did not really need.

Hi guys.
I just went to Gleneagles hospital to see dr wong to remove by nose implant as recommended by a forummer.
It cost me $800+.
My nose is really a disaster now, tip is totally round and fat and thick!
Dr Chi DID NOT cut any flesh/fats from my nose for alar, INSTEAD, he squeeze the side to the tip and stitch them for it to stay in place!
Now after taking out the implant, my tip is no longer prominent as there is no implant to "pull" the tip out.

And one thing I found out that Dr Chi lied to me.
Dr Chi cheated me.
He asked me if I wanted a soft or hard tip for the silicon nose implant, I told him which one better. He said hard tip wise will be sharper but more prone to extrusion, but I don't mind and I wanted the hard tip. He said ok.
Before the surgery,I reminded him that I wanted a very sharp nose and a hard tip implant, he still say " Yes yes yes. "

I am now worried about my brow bone implant, if he used the right implant or not.
I will attach pics of my nose later for everyone to judge.

Can anyone recommend me what to do for my nose?
Will rib rhinoplasty have extrusion too? Or no?
How about tiplasty? Will it help for my disfigured no-hope tip?
:( :(

What I want now is just a sharp tip only, bridge and width wise is ok..
Life is a misery.

I can say is before you go on to redo something else, you will do well to consider finding out more about what to expect after surgery and realign your expectations. This is not a "I pay I get what I want and I want it now". Like in life, we all take risks whether big or small. Like it or not we have to live with the consequences of our decisions. Ask yourself are you fully aware of what these risks are and are you prepared before you pull the trigger again.

you are still swollen. there is no way an implant has a tip like that.... l-shaped implants are not manufactured like that. i definitely know you are still swollen. please wait a little.

Hi turnerdhr, the pics I uploaded, the implant has been taken out already!
The pics I sent you in private, the implant is still in my nose which is yesterday. I went to remove my implant just now.

I guess I'm really not mentally prepared..
Now for my brown bone, I guess I will give it time and see how it settles, perhaps I am still swelling..

Anyone knows if rib rhino will cause extrusion?

You should listen to omega, aadvark, turned as all of them have given you sound, rational advice.

Also, a few things,
r Chi DID NOT cut any flesh/fats from my nose for alar, INSTEAD, he squeeze the side to the tip and stitch them for it to stay in place!

There are MANY approaches to alar reduction that have different pros and cons. What he did sounds like a sill floor excision type which is the one I had as well and some doctors prefer this type because the chance of visible scarring is far less than it is in the type where they make the cuts on the outside.
And one thing I found out that Dr Chi lied to me.

I don't think this complaint of yours holds any water. There is no way for you to know if he gave you a very sharp nose TWO weeks out of your surgery so how can you say that he "lied" to you when you yourself didn't give sufficient time to see the final result? If you read a lot of the "journals" here and speak to a lot of plastic surgeons everyone will tell you that the tip takes the absolute longest to show results especially for thick skinned patients. In fact, many surgeons even say that a tip on a thick skinned person can take up to 1-2 YEARS to resolve, not the 1-2 WEEKS that used as a meter so expecting a "very sharp nose" two weeks out is a pipe dream at best.

Personally, I absolutely do not think you should be undergoing anymore surgery to be completely honest. In your last surgery, you went in neither mentally, emotionally, nor informally prepared and if you do end up going into another surgery unarmed again then you are just going to experience the same thing you did last time. Plastic surgery is not for the impatient. Those who are really serious about it should do extreme research. Based on the way you reacted it doesn't seem like you read anything past the first page. There are many many many people with lots of experience on these boards and there is a search tool function that you can use to help you better prepare yourself. I don't think you are ready for any work and I say this with concern rather than any offense.

Good point. ASIANS (mongoloids) in general have thicker skin or dermis layer than e.g, caucasians. Negros (Negroid) have the thickest skin layer. If you really want to speed up the dewelling process on tip, ask a local PS do give you a steroidal injection on tip to bring down swelling. This is a common practice in the US. Try this, rather than taking out your implant. Dr. Chi gave you a super sharp tip. He really does follows patient's instructions.
