They even helped me book my hotel and will arrange transport to/from the airport. No frustration at all, hopefully a good start to a successful surger! Pretty psyched and very ... very ... scared!

Good luck! I am going later this year for facial contouring, possibly to Regen.

Are you staying in the guesthouse hotel? I heard some bloggers like QiuQiu went there

I'm staying at The Designer's Hotel LYJ Gangnam Premier. I think the hotel looks very cool and I prefer a full service hotel to a guest house. Of course, different people have different preference. I know some prefer guest house because it's easier to cook.

Hihi! I'm not there yet, I'll be going in September. I will be there for 17 days, just enough time to remove my sitches before I fly back home.

Last year when I want to Korea for Rhinoplasty and didn't have time to remove my stitches, gawd it was so difficult to find a doctor in Singapore who's willing to do so at a reasonable price ... This time round I'll make sure I get them removed in Korea. They are dissolvable but I just don't like leaving them around, higher risk of scarring.

My list was Regen, DAPRS, EverM and The Face Dental (TFD).

1. EverM - a few forumers commented that their vline were too subtle and could hardly tell the difference. The thread is here: http://forum.purseblog.com/asian-pl...out-double-jaw-surgery-in-korea-915490-2.html

Dr Yoon is a reputable maxillofacial surgeon no doubt, but I think he's more suitable for patients with real problems - bite problems. I may also consider other procedures like fillers, which I don't think they do or not their speciality.

2. TFD - a recent forumer was not satisfied with her results. The thread is here: http://forum.purseblog.com/threads/disfigured-by-new-dental-clinic.939413/

Similar to Dr Yoon, Dr Lee is also a good maxillofacial surgeon and ditto the rest of the things I've said above about EverM. TFD is also still new, there's no foreign patients service. There were actually a no. of good reviews before, but much is still left to be seen.

3. DAPRS - Dr Lee is not a maxillofacial surgeon but he's pretty famous and clinic reputable. They are not nearly as responsive as Regen and this says a lot about aftercare, if something wrong happens to the surgery.

4. Finally Regen - biggest of the four, very responsive, did a good job for bloggers including QiuQiu, Rachel Tan. Im getting the same surgeon, Dr Oh Myung-June. He represented Regen as a keynote speaker on facial contouring at ASPS and a forumer found out he wrote a book on facial contouring. Thread is here: http://forum.purseblog.com/threads/best-plastic-surgery-clinics-in-korea.474424/page-42.

So here you go ... The reasons why I choose Regen:

• big reputable hospital, no need to worry about safety issues, established foreign patients services
• very responsive (important if anything goes wrong)
• Dr Oh has really good credentials and accolades, he was a former professor at Seoul University Hospital, and is a resident doctor, advisor and craniofacial specialist at the hospital.

I actually think View Clinic is crazy responsive in Kakao. But yes Regen is good, its their price which has put me off all this while. Their prices are nuts.

Yes, View is super responsive, the quotation is also slightly cheaper. I did contacted them too. But I think Regen is better known for facial contouring, so I don't mind paying more. If I'm doing other things like fats grafting, I will consider View. I read a forumer here who had good results for fats grafting from View.

I'm a little concerned about Regen's Zygoma work. Qiu Qiu did hers there and her cheeks have a slight sag to it. It's noticeable enough.

Compared to Regen, I think DA is not very responsive. I'm worried because if during an emergency and we need an immediate response, are they going to take 12 hours to reply to a single Kakao message?

I think sagging is a very real risk and depends a lot on individuals as much as on the surgeon's skills. I think both Dr Lee Sang Woo and Dr Oh Myung June are good. I just cross my fingers that Dr Oh is on top form when he's doing my surgeries lol. If he tell me that there's a high chance that my face will sag, I don't think I'll go for it.

If you look at DA b&a, you'll notice that many gals are not bad looking to begin with, also, the selfies mostly are top down or angled beauty shots with makeup, colored contacts... I find Regen's b&a more believable. Both clinics photos make use of lighting in their after photos though.
