As I still get quite a few emails requesting my photo, I think I'm brave enough to post them now.... here you go.
O.M.G you look amazing... What a transformation (unless it is the make up )
I really like your new eyes and your nose suits very well...
Btw, am not too far from London (am living in Dublin, Ireland).. So hopefully we can meet up sometimes.. I travel from time to time to London for work
My first choice is Shimmian because I like the b&a pics, VIP and Item but I still have like 10 more in my lists, those 3 are my top lists.
It's very confusing choosing the right surgeon because the result is permanent and it's in the middle of your face....
aaaaaaaa i'm so confuseeed
ahhh summerline! relax.. when are you going for rhino? Actually if i were to do silicon rhino, VIP & Item would be in my list too! :)
what's shimmian website? i could find it unless its the blogspot account...??
That's probably because they didn't use rib graft cartilage... I think that's the most expensive rhinoplasty you can do. Most people seem to be getting Silicone, and the famous Shane77 is planning on getting dermis (whatever that is..). You should decide what type of implant you feel comfortable with getting and contact clinics for a cost estimate...
I don't know if Migo offers rib graft rhinplasty. On their Korean website, they have a "cost estimator" and rib graft rhino isn't an option... Maybe cause I'm still waking up, I haven't seen it.. lol. But I do know that they never respond to these online consultation requests from their English website. Which makes me wonder... why have them in the first place?
Good luck to you all! and keep us updated!!
ahh~ migo don't offer rib cart rhino? argh! lol! i must seen it wrongly somewhere....
ya, till date i still have yet to receive anything from them...!
i am not going korea that soon yet.. so i guess im gonna stick around here for some time... hehe! do keep me posted too-anything about rib cart rhino! hehe :)
No, I don't get into fights often. But I do train for fighting and one of my love of sports is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. People do get bumped in the face with an elbow or knee unintentionally unfortunately. But just like any other sports, accidents do happens.
So that is the main reason why I ask...
Are you suggesting rib cartilage would be best? I was considering it, but I need all the flexibility I can afford from my ribs. And taking a chunk out wouldn't be good for me athletically. Plus I hear it take at least a year to recover.
I'm already dreading that I will have to take a year off at least before I can get back into my daily activities for the 2 Jaw.
ic....you're a martial artist huh. i was too a martial artist once until my business gotten in the way. now i just hit the gym and jog.
actually there are many conflicting suggestion in regard to rib cartilage. the benefit ofcourse is that is it an autologous material harvested from your own body. so the chances of rejection is extremely slim to none. the draw back i hear about rib cartilage is that is is very soft and have a tendency does have a tendency get bent if you're not careful. if you think about the causes of deviated septum, it is usually the result of trauma to the cartilage of the bridge. so my personal take is if you're going to spend USD$10,000 on something, it better last for a very, very long time. for someone like your self whose into contact sport, you better off going for more durable material such as silicone. it won't cost you a fortune to replace incase you every accidently damage it. from what i heard, you can't salvage cartilage. once it is is damage, you have to get of it. i'm not really an expert when it comes to rib cartilage. i think kain would be the right guy to turn to for advice relating to rib cartilage.
BK does do maxillary/paranasal implants with rib or silicone I believe. HKP had it done@ID w/silicone.
From my research what I have read this is a good alternative for people who feel have a wide, flat or concave faces. Helps builds the mid face for a more rounded beveled appearance. And will give a smoother contour projecting of the nose.
i need to do more research when it comes to this subject (which i am) i had something silimar done many years ago to correct my facial concaveness. but it wasn't with a true maxillary implant, it was with a tiny sillion sheep inserted on the top of my lip to achieved a more rounded appearance around the mid facial area. but it was pretty weak and didn't do much to help improve my aesthetic. so had it removed when i went for my 2 jaw. what HKP had sone is a silicone implant around the paranasal region. i saw a silicone manfacture that produces a an implant that goes under the nasal cavity like a reverse moustache. i think that what Kain had done. i am planning for the same thing after my zygoma and nose revision surgery next month.
Why would you not also consider Dr Hong since Dan4me has very good result too for face contouring under him? Could you share with me the reason coz I am seriously thinking of Dr Kim or Dr Hong for face since the tube is through mouth. But the concern for me is that I have not seen other testimonials besides Dan4me, but I have seen more from ID through HongKOngPooey and youtubes. How? I read somewhere that Dr Hong has invented a way to prevent face sagging in future. But I need more references to justify my decision..
well the answer is simple. i have more faith in dr shin then dr hong. like you said, there isn't enough reference other then dan4me to justified having my surgery done by him. i can say the same for dr shin when it comes to facial contouring. i haven't seen or met any one who had facial contouring done by dr shin. i have witness one facial contouring surgery under dr kim last month. but i have yet to see the after result since my friend refuse to send me a picture of what she look like. which is why when it comes to facial contouring, my number one choice is still dr park of ID. i have seen the result on my self and that of other so which is why i have no reservation having my zygoma revision done at ID. dr shin for me is more on nose, eyes and everything in between the face. i have seen plenty of eyes and nose reference coming out of dr shin office. so i am very confident having dr shin do my nose.
Thanks for your reply Shane, I'm planning to go to ID as well. For nose and zygoma. Have they quoted you for your surgery yet? Can you kindlt share with me the price of surgeries you are doing? And where you gonna stay is there anywhere nearby that's cheap and decent?
Sorry I'm totally have no clue and nervous about all these.. Im hoping to go there early Sept...
its about 10 million won for both nose revision and zygoma revision. if i decide to do both at ID or both at BK, i could probably get it much cheaper. if i am doing both in the same clinic, i would most likely do it at ID. the only thing that would make me change my mind is if i decide to go with dermis instead of silicone, since only BK does dermis implant for the bridge of the nose. as i said before, i am fine with either dr kim of ID or dr shin of Bk doing my nose if i decide to go with silicone. since only only dr shin does dermis, i would have to go with BK if i choose that for my bridge. if i do choose bk for my nose, i could stay at their guest house free of charge so that would save me a lot of money. other wise i would be staying at highland hotel which isn't free, but it is cheaper than sunshine or la casa.
apologize for not being here as often. been kinda busy preping for my up coming trip to seoul next month, that and my website which for interested to know is coming along nicely. i am currently working on the catagories which have kept me busy over the last few days. i'm trying to sort everything out, trying to make it as comprehensive as possible while still keeping it simple and easy to navigate. i would love to seek out the opinion of those here. should i go with a an extremely comprehensive list of catagories, or just a simple condense list? an example would be cosmetic filler. now we all know there are hundred of injectable filler in the market from aquamid to zyderm to cosmoplast. now i could list out all the brands which would take me a while to collect the information, or place it under a single term, SYNTHETIC INJECTABLE FILLER. something like that. there are pro and con of the two. the pro being that it will be an exhausted list of every cosmetic filler known in the industries. but the con of it is almost every clinic in korea that i know of carry only one or two popular brand of synthetic filler. Botox for example is the brand most commonly used by korean clinic. Dysport is another brand of botulium toxin which is FDA approved, but to my knowledge hardly any korean clinic carry the brand. and when it comes to botilium toxin, there are type A and type B. type A being the the FDA approved brand while type B is still popular but not FDA approved. there are hundred of synthetic filler brand which most of us have never even heard of. so if i go with a comprehensive list, i might be a waste of precious space to list them in the catagories. i'm leaning toward just narrowing the brand down to just a single term making it a lot easier for folk like you to navigate and would definetlely make my job a lot easier as well. below is an abriviated example of one of the catagories (Cheek) on my list. do let me know if i'm miss anything on this list, or made a mistakes. a lot of the information i gathered from the internet so its hard to tell which sources is legit and which isn't.
I'm doing my research for double eyelids surgery and noticed that Banobagi's website is very informative and convincing. Not sure anyone here have any before and after pic or any comments that can share here?
I have shortlisted Jewerly as well but saw some forumers review that Dr. Hong speak zero English and I need a translator, however, Zoe is fully book i July, anyone have any experience with Jewerly?
Getting nervous for my trip now, any input here is much appreciated...
i'm interesting in banobagi too....the surgery outcome looks really natural...but i don't know are they expert in ptosis correction?
