Acme Sculpture Aesthetic Clinic Part 2 – Nose Job Surgery Rhinoplasty Consultation in Taiwan
Click here if you haven’t read –
I was really excited to finally arrived at Acme Sculpture Aesthetic Clinic for my consultation at their new clinic which they just moved into after Chinese New Year. I was very impressed with how nice and big their new clinic was. Thankfully they were nice and accomdating to let me have a tour around the premises to take photos.
There are 3 waiting cabins like this and a few other waiting rooms for clients to wait or talk to their nurses to fill up information, discussions and chit chats. The nurses are all really friendly. They asked if I had lunch and I said not yet so they brought me more biscuits and drinks. As they have international clients, many of the nurses could understand and speak english.
You can even watch TV while waiting.

They even have a photo taking room with awesome professional lightings just for photo taking. Talking about being impressed after the tour of the clinic’s full facilities!
The only part I didn’t visit during the consultation day was the operation theatre and the recovery rooms that is through this air blowing doorway which suppose to help blow away dust particles on our body. But you will see that in the next blog post of the operation and recovery article.
After being ‘wow’ by the clinic premises, it was time to sit down with the nurse to fill up my personal particulars, take blood for blood test and pee sample before the operation on the next morning.
They are drawing my blood and I looked so happy. I really don’t understand myself sometimes. Maybe nervous laughter???? *bleh*
Even their toliet looked like a 5 star hotel. Every where was just really nice.
Last #Selfie before nose operation the following morning. Haha! Bye bye flat round nose.
Dr Ching greeted me with a pleasant smile when I enter his consultation room. Can’t believe Dr Ching is 38 years old as he looked so youthful. (you can read about his achievements in my previous post here)
First thing you spot on a good doctor, they’d ask you what kind of nose you want. Many doctors I had consulted before straight away tell me how they want to do my nose and what type of nose will look nice on me. After all, I am the person who is going to be looking back at myself in the mirror everyday. It is more important about what I wanted isn’t it? To me enhancing my looks is not about wanting others to look at me, but me looking at myself and have better self confidence.
Dr Ching’s first question for me is what type of nose do you like? Do you have photos to show me? I guess this is a good start isn’t it? I quickly flipped on my phone and show him photos of the type of nose which I like.
After showing him what I like on my phone, Dr Ching asked if he could feel my nose to inspect the structure of my nose. I told him in detailed that I had semi permanent fillers done years ago and had PDO threadlift done too a year ago but it did not achieve the long term results I wanted therefore I finally decided to do rhinoplasty nose surgery.
I wanted a nose that is straighter and with a higher nose tip. Most importantly, well balanced with the other features on my face. It should be very natural and feminine looking. I don’t want it looking too overly sharp or excessively elevated. After all, I have very oriental features and I do not want every other person who met me noticed that something was done to my nose. So I kept emphasising to Dr Ching – Natural Nose!
Dr Ching told me my nose tip is really soft. Therefore, it would not be enough if he only took the ear cartilage to place at the tip of my nose. So he suggested to take another cartilage from the back of my nose(nasal septum cartilage) to enhance the effect of my tip.
From the part of the nose in between the eyes where he is pointing at with the pen(in the photo below) would be where the implant should start. He said many had it placed too high up and it would look weird so where the implant would start from the top of the nose is very crucial.
We had also discussed about the risks of the surgery. Dr Ching say only risk would be the risk of infection but of course there are means to cut down the risk like sterilising the implants multiple times and besides taking antibiotics verbally, I have to come back to the clinic on the second and third day to take in antibiotic drip as well.
I like how honest Dr Ching was when he told me he would not know how much of the fillers could be extracted from my nose during the nose operation. The semi-permant fillers which was in my nose previously were there for many years and it will affect the shape of the nose so it would be best if he could remove the fillers as much as he can. But he said can only know after opening up my nose so no guarantee how much he can extract. Because this could be a more complicated process so Dr Ching told me to expect my nose could be more swollen after the surgery compared to someone who had a ‘clean’ nose that had not done anything to the nose before.
So at least if my nose is really swollen, I would be mentally prepared.
I also ask Dr Ching, if there is any risk that my nose could look worse after the surgery. He just laughed at my question and replied ‘it would look better and sharper’.
After sharing with me what he could do to make my nose into the shape I wanted, we moved on to check out the photos of his other clients. I think seeing these photos were so important to gain more confident of your doctor. There were so many so he selected the ones who had similar nose structure to mine and showed me their BEFORE & AFTER photos.
Other than explaining, Dr Ching also drew out on a piece of paper explaining my current nose structure and where he would place the implant, ear cartilage and nasal septum cartilage.
Dr Ching said he would also do some injection at the side of my nose bridge to dissolves the fillers at the side to which would help the nose bridge appear slimmer.
Dr Ching let me have a touch of what the new Ka Maila three implant felt like(it is really soft and flexible) and he also placed the implant on my nose to show me the height and the effect of how he would place it.
I guess all these gave me an excellent idea on what to expect.
Rhinoplasty can consist of the use biological and non-biological materials.
The poster in chinese above said Ka Maila mould for new age scarless and natural rhinoplasty.
Next post would be about my surgery and recovery and part 4 (3 months later) when my nose settles into the final shape and updates.
