Plastic Surgery Journey in Seoul: Nose Surgery/ Fat Grafting PART 1

IMG_8252

After 3 years of waiting I finally came back to Korea for surgeries!

Thank you docfinderkorea.com and engbanobagi.com!!!!

Kinda glad that due to my nose infection in 2011 OZ Cosmetic Clinic (that’s where I did my double eyelid surgery, they screwed up the surgery and gave me gave me “tapered double eyelid” instead of the one I SPECIFICALLY ASKED FOR which is “parallel double eyelid” and apparently I wasn’t the only one with this issue, this is what I get for not choosing a good hospital for myself) doesn’t allow me to proceed with the procedure.

Back then I didn’t think about my safety at all, as 2 people I know went to OZ Cosmetics Clinic and nothing happen so it wasn’t part of my concern at all. Furthermore the review online was mostly positive, so I decided to have a go. Damn dare devil right? I know! But after talking to my case manager from DocfinderKorea, he told me that I was really lucky that nothing happen to me as the clinic doesn’t have all the equipment for emergency use. No matter if the surgery is a minor or major one, there’s a possibilty of risk, so it’s better to get a medical agent to help you find the best clinic.

Anyway, this post is to share with you about DocFinderKorea and the reason why my friend “Nikki” and I wanted to go for surgeries. Since I’ve tell you my previous experience, so let’s get down to the main topic!

DocFinderKorea job is to find the best doctor in Korea their clients, take care of all the logistics for your surgery, from accommodation and domestic transport, to surgery bookings and consultations.

If you ever email a clinic for enquiries you should know how frustrating is it to wait for their reply, there was once a clinic took one month to replied me with “please fill out the form as below” only. After I replied them with my details? Two month passed… and till now I have yet to receive any update from them. I understand that such issue might occur when the hospital is a renowned one, so I kinda expected it. But if DocfinderKorea is the one who arrange the consultations with your surgeon, all questions will usually be replied within 24 hours.

Ah~ The privilege of DocfinderKorea!

So… Isn’t it better if DocfinderKorea is the one who will settle everything for you!

Whether it’s for plastic surgery or other medical treatment, DocfinderKorea is able to find the best doctor and clinic, as they have lots of experience working with plastic surgery clinics. Even a superb clinic, will have surgeon who are not suitable for the procedure that you wished to do, as they don’t specialize in it. So it’s very important for patient to choose the best doctor and clinic that is suitable for you.

According to DocfinderKorea, they will help patient to bargain with the clinic. Most people thinks that going direct with the clinic is a better choice as the rate will be lower without any agency involve. That’s wrong! ONLY Koreans are able to get the cheapest rate price from the clinic. Well, definitely cheaper than foreign patient! They will also make sure that patient will get the best treatment and service from the hospital, surgeon wouldn’t be switch last minute!

Patient who visit Korea by themselves might have problem with buying medicine at pharmacy after the surgery, good thing is DocfinderKorea provide service such as running errand like buying medicine for you. I was so glad that they provide such service, I was so lost when I went to purchase medicine from the pharmacy. The staff make me even more stress by speaking to me in Korean, right after I passed him the prescription. Luckily, Shin Park was there and he translated and explained what the staff was saying. Phew~

 They will provide: a few clinic for you to choose from, price for all procedures listed, feedback from your surgeon on your photos and details, comprehensive information regarding your surgeon, treatment and clinic. No more back and forth shitloads of replies with the clinic anymore as the dates and times for all appointments will be arrange by them.

To make your stay in Korea stress free and comfortable one, airport pickup is provided, and what’s even better than having someone to chauffeur you to all appointments! Don’t have to struggle with the language barrier while taking a taxi, DocfinderKorea case manager will accompany you to all hospital appointments/consultation. They will assist in all administrative details including hospital admission and discharge, visit you in the hospital for three days following surgery. Your case manager or their nurse and staff can provide assistance in washing your hair, showering, dressing, or applying lotions. After discharge, you will be in daily contact with your case manager, who will be available to collect your medications, pick up meals and more!!!! Sounds like an awesome baby sitter! Lol.

After many Q&A emails we feel very relieved and I book the flight ticket for us and choose one hotel among the hotel list DocfinderKorea offer, after we confirmed the consultation and surgery date.

Speaking of DocfinderKorea, Nikki and me is really very grateful and thankful that Shin Park is very efficient, helpful, sincere and enthusiastic from the moment we touched down Incheon Airport. He planned everything from searching clinic, booking consultation, helping us to asked the clinic about whatever thing we wanted to know.

#1 Nose Surgery: fixed uneven nostrils, higher nose bridge
I would love the bridge of my nose between my eyes to be higher, the uneven nostrils need to be fixed too! It is so frustrating to photoshop my pictures every time, so time consuming!

#2 Fat Grafting: fill in sunken cheek, smile lines and chin
I feel so shag, sick and old without any fats on my face. Most people always asked me if I’m on diet as my face is getting skinner each time they see me. Excuse me? I eat up to 6 meals a day with snacks, it’s not my fault that the fats doesn’t want to grow on my face. What bullshit is “eat more and you’ll grow fats on your face” there is no such thing as you eat whatever shit and the fats will grow on the place you wanted. I tried to eat MORE and all the fats grow on the WRONG PLACE! So it doesn’t work that way, that’s why fat grafting exist!

Readers, friends and even boyfriend told me that I am pretty enough and they don’t know why I still want to go for plastic surgery, I can only say that it’s all makeup and photoshop. All these flaws is on my face, I see it everyday and I don’t like it. Couldn’t be bothered if people is going to call me plastic after that because people called me that, way before I got anything done. Zero fuck given!

My friend’s Nikki #1 Water Drop Breast Surgery
Nikki is someone who love going to the beach with her dogs and friends, but she had a small chest and it make her really self conscious in a bikini and she envy her friends who are able to flaunt their body with nice boobs. At the same time, she have to reconsider before buying due to the cutting and low cutting clubbing wear is out of the question as she got no confident at all. Even since Nikki was younger, she always envy girls with big boobs.

Previously when we was chatting, she actually told me about her issue and I recommended Banobagi to her and she decided to do a change in her life right after she saw the real review and before/after pictures on their website!

 Docfinderkorea found the best clinics and doctors for me and the reason why I decided to chose Banobagi is because they have real reviews from their customers, before/after pictures on their website, DR. Jae-Sang Ban the surgeon that will be doing surgery for Nikki and my surgeon DR. Hyeon-Taek Lee are on a TV programs (Let me in) not sure if you have watch it before. It’s a korean extreme makeover show, that make me super impressed!

Some of the contestants that Banobagi’s surgeon crafted, our surgeon is part of it too! Are you impressed by the before and after result just like me? I was like :O this is way too awesome!

Updates: My surgery is supposed to be on Saturday, August 2, 2014 but got postpone due to allergy reaction towards the injection to dissolved my nose fillers. They put me on anti-allergy IV drip to prevent my eyes and nose to continue swelling for around 30 minutes, so glad that the swelling went off faster than I thought.

During the IV drip, Shin Park accompanied me for the whole time. And also, after the drip he even brought me to Royce at Apgujeong cause I wanted to buy chocolate to cheer her up after her breast surgery. I didn’t asked him to guide me there, as the weather was really hot and I thought that maybe he can rest in Banobagi lobby instead!

Alrigtht, I got to stop here. Let’s talk about this after my surgery, it’s reschedule to Monday 4pm. Wish me luck and I’ll wish you luck if you decided to change your life. There is nothing wrong with girls wanting to look pretty.

Thanks for reading this post, hope it helps!
