I am leaving to Seoul in 2 days time. So egg-cited!
I am returning to JW Plastic Surgery Clinic Korea who did my nose and fat grafting in Sep 2013. A lot of readers were enquiring about the surgery cost, clinic info etc. I must admit I am very happy with the results thus i am going back again. This time I will be doing epicanthoplasty (approx 1300 USD), non-incisional double eyelid surgery with ptosis correction (approx 3250 USD) and Fat graft for my face (approx. 2000 USD). The quoted fees are before the doc’s consultation. The doc will advise when I am there at the clinic.
So what exactly am I doing?
Epicanthoplasty & Double Eyelid Surgery
The procedure will widen the inner eyelid (epicanthoplasty) or the outer eyelid (lateral cantophlasty) through incisions around the area. It will sharpen the edges of the eyes, and reshape the horizontal length of the eyes. It is a very popular procedure for those who want to eliminate the Mongolian fold, which is prevalent among Asians. I am opting for epicanthoplasty in conjunction with double eyelid surgery to achieve a more natural look. I had a double eyelid surgery 8 years ago with Dr Martin Huang. He used the stitching method which is scarless and creates a natural appearance. The results are typically shorter lasting. This time I will see advice from JW Clinic whether I should opt for Incisional technique since I want a long lasting results. See the difference on both techniques for double eyelid surgery.
The recent Singaporean blogger who did similar procedure is Tammy Tay (http://ohsofickle.blogspot.sg/)
After Surgery (i love her big eyes!)
This procedure will remove your own fat to re-implant it where needed. It is typically extracted from body parts like the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks, and injected into another area that requires plumping. Fat grafting can improve the creased and sunken areas of the face, and add fullness to the lips and cheeks. The last time I did, fat was extracted from my thigh and injected to my cheeks. I had sunken cheeks in the past. This procedure has helped to pump up my cheeks and soften and smooth my facial lines. I had received compliments of me looking younger than my actual age. 😛
Reason why I am doing it for the 2nd time is because for long lasting results, it is recommended to have 2 sessions of fat grafting procedure (depends on individual). Last remark: do not attempt to diet and lose your weight after you had fat grafting. The injected fat will be lost too.
See my photo (no filter and edit) before rhinoplasty & fat grafting. I had such big nose and i looked old.. I had double eyelid sticker on my eyes in this photo.
My recent photo (almost 6 months post surgery) Hopefully after the eye surgery, I will look better 😛
I will be posting photos from Seoul on my surgery and recovery. Stay tuned! 🙂
