Double Suture & Twist with MeClinic (Johor Bahru)

Hello!

I am finally doing this long awaited post to address all of your enquiries on this Double Suture & Twist procedure that I did with Me Clinic (Johor Bahru) recently.

First of all, I would like to thank ALL of you for the enquiries! I was still cracking my brains on what to write about this whole procedure.

Thank you ladies!!!

I know that many of you actually asked me why I did it when I have double eyelids….. or maybe non-existent double eyelids (we call it 内双)
The truth is, my double eyelids are too thin for my liking, ESP when I smile or have eyeliner on, it is as good as having no double eyelids.

On top of that, I have super uneven eyes. Even a few makeup artists that I have worked with before had a lot of problems making them even… till one day, this makeup artist that I met during a print ad shoot introduced me to eyelid tapes.

&I have had them on ever since, perhaps for about 5 years?

As you can tell from this picture above, my eyes are really…. I dont know how should I describe this… It looked horrendous I kennut la sial.

You girls knew what I meant right??? Like my double eyelids were non-existent. Looking at my old pictures just make me wanna burn all of them. *sighpie*

Back to the topic on double eyelid stickers, I found a picture of me having them on for the very first time!!!

The makeup artist did a good job on my eyes, but not exactly my eyebrows as they were way too thin for my age. I was 21 or 22 then? I can’t remember when though.

I am so sorry for our kan cui photo before the procedure. I was super deprived of sleep because I WAS BLARDY WORRIED.  & ivy just came back from a flight with zero sleep. lul… You know the feeling of not knowing what to expect? Yup, so I spent the whole night reading up on the procedure, asking my bf to pinch my eyelids so I can kinda have a feel of what it is going to be like. HAHAHAH I sound retarded.

A0A45E5D-6BB9-4F9F-8FE7-5DB5C3956407

My nervous 内双 face before the surgery, SUPER HATE MY ONE BIG ONE SMALL EYES!!!!!

Anyway……..

I have compiled a list of questions with regards to the double eyelid procedure, so here you go!!!!

Why did I choose to go for this procedure and not continue having double eyelids stickers on?

Pretty simple, I wanted something long term n not having to worry whether I brought extra eyelid tapes when I am out. (just in case my eyelids get oily and the tapes get visible)

Was the procedure painful?

To be REALLY REALLY honest, the process was not painful.

However I would not say that it was not painful AT ALL. It was the local anaesthesia that stung. & when I say that it stings, means its pretty painful, but the pain lasts for about 3 secs for every jab.

Upon 10 perhaps 6? Mind you, I have a very low threshold for pain.

How long will the procedure last?

30 mins! Approx 15 mins for each eye,

What is the process of the whole procedure?

  1. A consultation with Dr David to see if my eyes were suitable for the procedure. (The DST procedure is unfortunately not for everyone. Fatty eyelids are unfortunately a no go.)

thumbnail_IMG_7650 (1)
This was my reaction when I was told that the doctor would have to flip and jab my eyes on the underside of my eyelids. IT SOUNDED SUPER INTIMIDATING OKAY.

2. Preparation for the procedure – cleansing

I was starting to freak out as they were cleansing my face for the preparation. Super thankful for the nice and comforting staff in the clinic that kept me ‘sane’ during the procedure. I teared up a little, and they kept comforting me, giving me a pillow to hug and squeeze. Trust me, when you are alone in the cold room, you’ll need that.

3. Dr David will start doing crease markings on my eyelids

Was recommended to do the medium crease for a natural look.

And a tapered crease too.

4. The scariest part – the jab.

I had 3 jabs on the top of my eyelids.

As illustrated here, on the eyelids and on the underside of the eyelids.

I know this sounds CRAZILY scary. I was so scared during the consultation that I was close to tears okay!!! But… I teared a little before the procedure. BECAUSE IM A COWARD OKAYYYY I ADMIT!

5. The doctor will start sewing the first eye and then the next.

I felt nothing after the jab. This is why I specifically highlighted that the scariest parts of the procedure were the jabs and not the procedure itself. I felt nothing, perhaps only the tugging and pulling of the eyelids when he was sewing it.

THAT’S ALL!!!

Felt so stupid and embarrassed for being a baby because I cried. HAHAH! I hope everyone reading this won’t judge me, as a 26 yr old I’d still cry over things like jabs HAHAH *PAISEH*

6. THE TENSION

The doctor would tug and make sure that the threads were tight and fastened. The ‘sensation’ was weird, tbh. But, no pain okay!

 

VOILA!!! I AM FINALLY DONE WITH THE PROCEDURE.

After the procedure….

My ever-so-supportive Haohao came in and I just had to smile for the camera.

thumbnail_IMG_7656 (1)

Was given an ice pack to ice my eyelids.

Was there any pain after the procedure?

For me, NO. Zero pain. Totally nothing. Just that, my eyelids felt super heavy and tight. I can’t open my eyes totally.

 

Cost?

$4.8k RM

Why DST and not cut?

DST is scarless, reversible and a no incision procedure, we wouldn’t call it a surgery as there is no cutting involved so yeppp.

Downtime is close to zero, at least for me…

The cutting surgery is permanent. So if the doctor screws up, it would mean your eyelids are as good as gone. It’ll scar, so it would not look as natural.

HUH!!! Johor Bahru, KL, Malaysia eh? Reliable not? I thought Korea or Taiwan would be better?!

Yeap this was my exact reaction when my friend told me that she did hers in Me Clinic (Berjaya Times Square). I absolutely have no clue that she did her eyelids. Furthermore, hers was beautifully done!!! Sometimes, it is really not the country that affects the outcome. I would say that it is really the skills of the doctor that did the procedure for you. I have friends that did theirs in Korea and got screwed over. So.. do the math yo’self!!!

How long will this last?

Sewing methods are usually not permanent. Say 5 – 10 years? It really depends on your eyelids and how fat it is! I have a few aunties that I know of had their eyelids sewn and theirs are still going strong.

Recovery

DAY 0

I was super fortunate that my recovery process was a BRISK.

I did a super YOLO thing by heading to work for an event the very next day.

Took this picture right after the surgery when I got home:

6F4135A3-A5FA-4F5A-B1C9-474F34D6B368

okay let me do a little explanation here.

My left eye (the one that looks weirdly swollen) was super swollen and I felt really ugly after the procedure.

That’s the thing about going thru a surgery, there’s always this insecurity within you that tells you ”Hey! Maybe it will not get better and you will look like this for the rest of your life.” Y’know…..

On the contrary, my right eye swelled beautifully, it is almost like the height I’ve always desired – with double eyelid tapes (like the picture below)

I iced my eyes before I slept, so thankful that Haohao was there to take care of me. Thanks love <3

Day 1

550CD63E-0E5B-49D1-81A5-BB0A34CB9D69

I woke up feeling better, the swell has gone down a little too. Very optimistic about my recovery.

Went to work still!! YOLO OKAY!!!

Hao and I took a cab together to work. Here’s an irritating photo of him showing off his LEGIT eyelids and mine’s the artificial one *roll eyes*

My lovely partner and I.  The crew commented that the swell was not as bad as I thought it was. So thank god I didn’t look abnormal.

Day 2

B690D591-025E-4E19-A0B3-9D422DF5A85D

The swell has gone down significantly. This was my face without makeup. Intended to do the makeup in the car for my shoot.

In fact my right eye looked normal.

RMB ladies!!! No eyeshadow at all for about 1 week because it might cause an infection.

Told you all that my recovery was a walk in the park!!!

I could do my usual stuff from day 1, like wearing lenses, go to work etc. However, do note that each individual has a different reaction to the procedure, so do not get your hopes high okay!

 

This was after a week, the scars were fading pretty fast!

Totally scarless!!!!!!!!!!

and my eyes now, as of today, 26/1/17.

Pretty even ya? I think Dr David did a good job with my eyes and it was worth the 30 mins of ”torture”.

BTW, I am also in the midst of editing my vlog on the recovery process! Will upload it on youtube soon!!! Stay tuned okay?!

Throw me more questions if you must!!!

NUDE – Brazilian IPL

I have always been doing Brazilian IPL years ago, but it was never effective for me because I haven’t been going for my sessions diligently…… & THE REASON?

IT HURTS.

& yes, the previous IPL salon that I have been going to did a terrible job.

It was super painful, (okay maybe not super painful) but every pulse the IPL machine gives, it gave me shocks.

Can you imagine how scared I was to go for my IPL sessions? I WAS DREADING EVERY.SINGLE.TIME.

I even constantly postpone them when I have booked an appointment because their IPL sessions were nasty. & I didn’t know that IPL wasn’t supposed to hurt this way, that is prolly because the machines used were outdated.

Furthermore, the VJJ area is always sensitive. Can u imagine the torture I have been through…….. :O

So glad that NUDE came and saved me from all the IPL misery. Trust me, their IPL sessions were nothing but painless. I have stopped shaving ever since my first session with them and that’s because most of the hair didn’t grow out ever since.

I could even chat with the therapist during the IPL sess’ (forgetting about the awkwardness and there was not even a single tinge of pain AT ALL).

Saw results even with one session, but with more

, I am sure I’ll be hairless totally. So….. who needs unlimited sessions with a hefty pricetag when you can be totally NUDE down there with just 6-8 sessions?

 

NUDE has never failed to make me feel comfortable and relaxed before and after every session.

Finding a grooming place for your pets is easy, but finding a groomer that is caring and loves pets is definitely a chore.

So glad that I found Pets Lagoon because Nikki, the cute boss of Pets Lagoon is a personal friend of mine and I am confident that my beloved Fifi will be in good hands.

Here’s how sanitary the grooming place is…

I am pretty sure that not only the skills of the groomer matter, but the place of the shop must also be sanitised and clean!

Pets Lagoon takes pride in keeping their workplace clean despite having so many dogs/pets coming in and out daily.

I am a super kiasu ”paw-rent” when it comes to Fifi, because I will constantly wonder if she is doing fine or how is she doing without me; or if she is worried that I am leaving her for good (Fifi was adopted)
Thank god Nikki gave me constant updates, so I was rest assured that she is doing fine!
So, here’s her cute look after grooming!
Decided to snip off her long fur and her ponytail because it was so matted up and I had no time to comb her everyday because she HATES being combed.

Orbis – Powder Wash +

Finally got my hands on Orbis Powder Wash +, a superior enzyme powder foaming wash!!!

img_6752

Getting rid of blackheads on my nose is really a hassle. Thankful for this new range by Orbis, it solved my PORE-blems! 😛

XXX brand pore strips
Why no pore strips for me? This is because pore strips stick firmly to the skin, the tugging motion used to remove blackheads causes irritation. Opened pores may also be vulnerable to infection, so it’s important to keep the skin clean. Definitely not for sensitive skin!!!)

Hence, pore strips will not be my only option to solve my pore-blems.

Introducing, Orbis – Power Wash +!!!!

Two powerful enzymes formulated in this one bottle to tackle your blackheads pore-blems – Protease and Lipase. They are specially formulated to tackle the sebum and Keratin plugs (nah! That’s how the nasty blackheads are formed) by breaking them down HOWEVER, at the same time, keeping the skin moisturized without stripping moisture off your delicate skin!

So here are the steps to achieving a deeply cleansed (ditching all these blackheads) yet moisturized skin:

img_7665

Step 1: A small amount of the powder wash would suffice. Was really fascinated by this powdery formula. Have never ever tried any cleansers in a form of powder.

img_9688

Step 2: Lather the powder with lukewarm water to create a foamy texture.

This Easy Whip Formula enables the powder to dissolve and lather quickly; creating firm and creamy foam that can effectively capture the grime broken down by the enzymes. The foam cushion texture washes gently without irritating the skin.

As you can see, the foam created was dense and bouncy – just like whipping cream 😛

To achieve it, you can refer to this link on YouTube. Kinda feel like I was whipping up some meringue – not too many visible bubbles as illustrated in my photo!

img_6334

Step 3: Massage the creamy foam gently on your skin and rinse thoroughly thereafter!

Enjoy the foamy massage therapy on your face girls, because the aftermath gives a very nice cleansed feeling.

img_0254

Skin feeling super boingboing after the foamy wash!

Do remember to only use this in place of your regular facial wash 2 to 4 times a week, depending on your skin condition! I have actually tried this for 3 times in a row!!!

img_8439

 

Orbis – Powder Wash +

  •  Oil free, free of fragrances, free of color additives
  •  Allergy-tested (formulated to minimise risk of allergy)

Available in all Orbis counters and stores, RRP $25 (including GST).

And in any case, you ladies are curious about the key ingredients and what they do, here you go!

messages-image3233080489

What’s better than having a facial wash that cleanse deeply and providing hydration at the same time?

Big love to Orbis, for sticking to their belief in true beauty and activating the skin’s enzymes responsible for skin’s beauty. You’re amazing xx

Nose Fillers with Simplistiq

Hello!!!

Im back to blogging again!

This space would be for an elaborated description for things/experiences I go through in my day to day life.
So here I am, dedicating my first ever post to Simplistiq.

I am really ecstatic to be onboard with Simplistiq for my virgin experience with nose fillers in which they call it the DERMAL FILLERS BELOTERO® INTENSE. Click the link for more info.

Have been meaning to try nose fillers as I am always dissatisfied with my button nose.

Two problem areas of my nose:
1) The lack of nose bridge
2) My button front, its a tad too meaty my my liking. I HATE IT.

However, I have absolutely no guts to do any invasive surgery because I am REALLY REALLY AFRAID OF PAIN, a very low threshold.

I can’t deal with the downtime and a nose surgery is too drastic a change for me.
Hence, given this opportunity from Simplistiq, I am so thankful that it changed my life/nose – a little.

Let me show you a picture of my ugly round bulbous nose.

As you can see, my nose bridge starts from the bottom of my eyes.

This is a mugshot I took before my fillers in the clinic.
I can’t deal with my button nose URGHHHH.
Anyhoos, I deliberately went out without contouring my nose because I knew that I would take a before and after, so yep.

I would contour my nose usually, cause I really can’t deal with a flat nose.

Here’s the process of my nose fillers.

I had a consultation with Dr YZ Tan, ig: @dr.yztan.

Next, the numbing cream.
Say, 30 mins?

Here comes the injection.

I have to emphasise HOW MUCH FEAR THERE WAS WITHIN ME.
I hate needles and they scare the shit out of me.

So the very kind ppl from Simplistiq gave me a cushion to hug and my eyes were completely shut during the injection.

I was really surprised that it is not painful at all!!!
like 0% pain?!

All I felt was something touching my nose HAHA.

This was for my nose bridge.

However, when it comes to the nose tip, it was slightly sensitive, so the sensation felt like somebody squeezing blackheads, but less painful.

Yep, I think I can describe this feeling pretty well as I had a facial the day before so I still had the discomfort at the back of my mind.

NOW…..
Here comes the aftermath of my fillers.

A collage of before and after side by side:

As you can see, theres a slight change to my nose bridge, the change is really mild as Dr Tan believes in subtle enhancement; and he has done it perfectly!!
I am too conservative in the sense that I hate seeing drastic changes to my face. So for a start, Dr Tan gave me something natural and minimal.

More pictures to show how having fillers change my look, not drastically, but I feel that I look better.

Guess it’s really the skills of an aesthetic doctor that determines how you look after fillers!!!

Thank you Dr Tan!!!! You are nothing short of AMAZING!!!

I took this selfie after my fillers.

Notice that theres some slight bruising, but rest assure that IT IS PERFECTLY NORMAL.
You can conceal it with some makeup.

Looks like my concealer is not good enough haha!!!

Day 3 before work.

No contouring of my nose BTW!!! AND MY NOSE BRIDGE IS DAMN OBVIOUS!!!!

Side view.

Do y’all agree that it is job done well and naturally?!

Not only I saw a difference in my selfies, but my photos from my shoots show a lot!!!

I did not contour my nose on purpose, because what for ya?! I have nose fillers and isn’t that the purpose – to look good without makeup.

My nose bridge is damn obvious here!!!! omg!!!

Psst:// Outfit from the new collection on The Design Closets

You can find the top here and the backorder of the skirt here.
Its really my kind of casual look btw!! Go get it!!!

I kept the shirt in blue.

Heres another angle of my nose that shows my super obvious nose bridge!!

I FINALLY HAVE A NOSE BRIDGE and it definitely creates an illusion of a smaller face.

All thanks to Simplistiq!!! I am so so soooo thankful. :’)

Can’t wait to try the other treatments they offer in their clinic; so do check them out if you’re keen to visit the clinic!!!

They’re located at:
