Just wanna share my experience with this clinic I went to.

Currently I'm on my 4th day of post surgery. I got my nose (Septal cartilage, lengthening, silicone implant and alar base) and eyes (double eyelid) at ITEM Clinic.

Like most of you, I've actually considered going to BK and actually have met Dr Kim in person once. Even booked my consultation and ALMOST book my surgery. But I am really glad I met Elaine. She let me know about ITEM clinic and suggest I meet up with the doctors for consultation.

So I met Dr Kim Jinsung (Former BK plastic surgeon, now director of ITEM Clinic) who is specialized in doing face contouring and nose jobs. He speaks english so there is no communication breakdown. And I am really really comfortable with him and he isnt pushy. He suggested what should be done and what shouldnt be done. He is also very detailed and patient. Later on, I also met Dr Chung Woojin (Former BK plastic surgeon, now director of ITEM Clinic) who is specialized in eyes and facelifting. He too, speaks english and also there isnt any communication breakdown. I'm sure thats what most of us look for when most of us doesnt speak fluent korean. And it is VERY VERY important to let the doctors know what is your desired look. Dr Chung Woojin is also a very nice person. Honestly, I couldnt ask for more. Both doctors are really friendly and down to earth, you dont feel like they are doing "sales", they dont get pushy, they listen to your needs and explain everything that they can do and what they cant. And most importantly, they are sincere. You will know that they are not after your money.

As compared to the consultation I had with Dr Kim from BK and the two doctors from ITEM, I am extremely comfortable with both two doctors as compared to Dr Kim from BK. If you are looking for attentively, not pushy, truthful and detailed doctors, ITEM has got them.

When I reached ITEM clinic, the nurses were very welcoming. Even though they cant speak english/chinese fluently, they still try to help. Also, there's a nurse who knows how to speak chinese, so dont worry. Before I had my surgery, I met the doctors again and they explained to me what they will do to me again and ask if I have any questions or doubts. After my surgery I was ushered to the recovery room to rest until I am feeling better. The nurses kept coming in to check on me. And then I was told that I can go back to the hotel and rest. One of the nurses even followed me to the taxi and make sure I was alright which is very sweet of her.

I was told to go back to the clinic next day to clean up my wound, and the doctors came to see me. They showed their concern and told me when I can expect to have my cast and stitches removed and why am I experiencing some kind of discomfort breathing (due to my nose job). I never have a doubt about these doctors because even when I don't question them, they fill in almost every details they can to make sure you feel secure with them. I didnt enter the operating room with question marks in my mind which I am very glad about.

I went back to the clinic on my 3rd day to get my wounds cleaned up and funny thing was, I was at the subway and this ajumma approached me and asked me for directions and saw my eyes and she said its pretty. It still look swollen and a little bruised but I trust my doctors and I wont doubt her

I'm going to visit the clinic tomorrow again and honestly, I am really really really glad I made the right choice. I'm so happy I get to know Elaine. If not for her, I wont be able to have know about this clinic. Even my mom who have consulted with Dr Kim from BK and the two doctors from ITEM, she too felt that the other two doctors were more sincere and truthful.

PS: I DIDNT GET PAID TO WRITE THIS MUCH. THIS IS BASED ON MY OWN EXPERIENCE AND THIS IS ALL COMING FROM MY HEART :)

www.itemclinic.com (LOOK AT ALL THE BEAUTIFUL AFTER PHOTOS!)
The website is in Korean, if you do not know where to see the photos. Go to the right hand side that reads "포토갤러리".

If you have any questions regarding the surgeries, email Elaine at itemclinic@gmail.com

I am plan to go there this September. I'm from US also. I think if you speak Korean then you may not need her around and take care of you. However it is nice to have someone around when you are covered with bandage.

Do you think it's ok to travel alone to Korea from USA for surgery or should I bring my sister. I just don't want to waste extra money on air fare if I don't have to.
Thanks

Hi everybody, I was just wondering, do any of you guys know of anyone who can take foreigners to different consultations and do aftercare services? LIke, half carer half translator? I know of Zoe, but she is booked out for the time I am going - and I am desperate to find someone else! or maybe even perhaps where you can find these services?

Hello xvx!

I was literally amazed by the beauty of how ITEM can change you into! And you looked fabulous now! Happy for you babe! :)

I'm gng to seoul this coming Jan 2013 for my double eyelid surgery as well. I have alr emailed ITEM few days back but they havent got back to me yet :(

Can i know how much did they charged you just for your eyelid surgery EXCLUDING ur nose job? Cos banobagi replied me and they quoted me a crazy price of 3-3.5K SGD! Is that the market rate for eyelid surgery in korea? I thought it was 1K plus all along :( So i need you to let me know how much did ITEM charge you just for eyes and is banobagi wayyy to overpriced?

Thanks babe! :)

You look really good!! I'm glad it turned out so well for you! Now I'm beginning to consider Item again. I had crossed it out actually because Elaine seemed to be taking ages to get back to me. And the quote they have sent me on my procedures, were not the exact procedures I had discussed with Dr Kim before, when I met him during his consultation in Singapore.

Can you share with me about your recovery after your surgery? Did you take any supplements or medication? Which hotel did you stay at and for how long were you in Korea for?

Did you do the surgery on the day you arrived in Korea? How did you pay for the surgeries, in cash and in Korean won or did you pay in Sin dollars or credit card?

Sorry for asking so many questions as I'm really nervous about my trip to Korea this Sept and I'm going alone! Freaking out and paranoid about not getting the face surgeries exactly the way I want it to be.

Pls advise. I will appreciate it so much!! Thanks!

Ahh! More knowledgeable people in this thread too, I see! I have been asking around about if there is a liposuction procedure available to make the area above the upper lip (between nose and lips) less protruding? Mine is very FAT and I think it would look better less thick. Any suggestions? Thank you kindly!

Sorry the pictures are huge haha

For those who don't know, I did rhinoplasty (Silicone implant, alar base reduction, septal cartilage for tip) and double eyelid. No magic epi...or anything.

Had mine done in ITEM clinic, on 23rd September 2011.

omg! you look really good. Do you happen to know anyone who has done jaw surgery at Items. I've already sent in my queries and pics for online consultation. I thought it's good see hear from others who had done the same surgery.
