Hi all,

It was 2015 when I last posted on this forum and at the time, I was recovering from double jaw surgery, which I had done at the DA clinic.

Now I am facing a new problem, which I would like to fix. Since the surgery (and ageing) I have loose skin under my chin, which I want removing / tightening (see picture). I also want the vertical height of my chin reducing slightly. Please see pictures – left hand side is how i look now, and the right-hand side it what I’m hoping to achieve.

The wish list:
  • A specialised clinic that can fix both issues at the same time, i.e. one surgery.
  • English speaking surgeon
  • Surgeon who understands the western 'look'
So, that being said, can anyone please help with the following:
  • Can anyone recommend a trusted clinic that can reduce the chin height and perform a neck lift?
  • Can anyone recommend a place to say? – Last time I stayed at Ephphath Residence and had no issues.
  • Can anyone give an indication of cost for both surgeries?
I am planning on having this surgery early April.

Thanks in advance - PS try not to laugh at my terrible photo editing :smile:

Anyone?

Clinics ive messaged so far are Everm, Face Dental and EU. Because I also want skin tightening under my chin (ideally in one operation), also considering Banobagi and View...

To add, I also had dark circle treatment at DA clinic and they runied under my eye. I had a big lump and redness and despite numours emails, I was told the filler would disolve in a couple of year. 3 years later, I had to seek the experience of a leading bleph speciailist in the UK. After surgery, I was tod the filler they injected, was not a filler and it would NEVER have disolved, so be careful.

Chin osteotomy T-CUT most plastic surgeon can do it, Your chin will be very numb and expect long recovery. This is not ez surgery and swelling, numbness and weird chin feeling can be up to 24months ive been told, but you gone through 2jaw so you should be ok. you will have excess soft tissue turning down when smiling and you can get that fixed later under local anesthesia.. ALSO be sure to make it 100% clear if you want more squared or v-type chin!! asians even males prefr v, in western culture its square unless you gay. Cost 5-10m depends where you get it done and with or without soft tissue i guess..

SOURCE: i had it done at TFD dr Lee.

cosign @Sillyslux`s recommendation - Dr. Lee @ TFD is very good. For your eyes I would recommend Dr. Seo at MVP or Dr. Chung at Eve Plastic Surgery. The sagging is minimal, I think you would benefit from laser skin tightening or thread lift. TFD doesn`t offer laser skin tightening/thread lift so you would have to consult with other clinics like the View, MVP, Dream, Banobagi. The durability of the procedures also differs from patient to patient - some have lasting results, others have said there was no noticeable difference, so definitely consult with many clinics & check out their results. For accommodation I could recommend Sunshine hotel, it is a walking distance to all the clinics. May I ask why you don`t want to stay at the E-residence?

Thanks for the info Sillyslux, very helpful. I have contacted TFD and Dr lee is really quick at responding. I have my face to face consultation booked for 6th of April :smile:

Thank you Mazikeen, I will be looking into a thread-lift - Ideally with a clinic that just focuses on skin... However, I have contacted the clinics mentioned and now waiting for a response. Not sure how long they typically take to reply. I appreciate the recommendation, as for E-residence, I have no complaints about the place, only i was there for a month last time and going back to that room gives me nightmares ;) Mrs Kim was lovely, she helped me with so much and I will always be grateful for her help. However, she attended every clinic I visited and even come in the consultancy room, which made me feel uncomfortable. I didn't want to offend her by asking her not to come. So if i do go back to the same hotel, I wont mention anything about Surgery :smile:

If you want the best possible results you need to do genioplasty and a lift separately. Once your chin is adjusted and tissues settled which will take several months, then you should consider a neck lift (smas). I'm sure clinics will offer to do both but they will do an okay job at best. You should consult with an oral maxillofacial surgeon for jaw, and an antiaging specialist for your neck lift, preferably someone who does a true lift.

:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin: Lawdt @ Mrs Kim being "helpful". Guarantee you she was def getting a slice of the pie. HAve to respect her hustle. You have to be very careful in Korea especially with friendly airbnb hosts, landlords etc. who offer to assist you with translations or negotiating prices at clinics. Most are only out for themselves. There was an American guy here on PF who was conned by his korean airbnb host & outed him here on PF. The host was Mrs Kim 2.0 - "friendly, made for him all appointments at the clinics, visited all clinics with him, negotiated the prices" etc. He only became aware of the host`s con when he complained to one of the clinics that the price they had quoted him via email was less than the quote they gave him when he consulted & they told him it was high coz they had to pay the host his" referral fee". Yes, it would be wise to just say you are on vacation, don`t mention the surgery. If you need a translator, get in touch with the Korean Tourist Board, they will hook you up with one. Also avoid concierge services like Doc Finder or Misooda, they are also middlesmen who gre looking for a cut.
How did you contact the clinics? I got faster answers via kakao & Whatsapp. HTH
