It’s been almost 4 weeks from my surgery in GRAND and I’m healing pretty well till now. I’ll be penning down my genuine thoughts on it and the procedures throughout. Hope I will be able to answer and give anyone of you a brief idea if you’re keen about it in this post.
I have been considering on going for plastic surgery years ago but I have ZERO COURAGE to go under the knife. I don’t wish to rely on fillers and botox for the rest of my life because it is a hassle for me to get them touch up every year or so. Another reason was that I have really thin double eyelid by nature and I use eyelid tapes since years ago to create that thick and parallel eyelid crease. And look at my eyes now, I have multiple and loose eyelids due to long term usage of eyelid tapes. YES, the eyelid tapes made my eyelids loose and hence the multiple crease which I think it’s really ugly and it made my eyes look droopy and sleepy ALWAYS. Not forgetting the humongous eyebag which I had always wanted to remove!!
And when I made up my mind and released the news to those who are close to me that I will be going for plastic…. most of them was like ‘huh do you really need that?’ ‘are you sure?’ ‘don’t go for it!!’ Most of it was negative. But for me, I was firm on my decision, I want to be pretty even when I remove my make up lol. I got to know my surgery date 2 months before, and for the whole of that 2 months I had sleepless nights. I can’t sleep well, I toss and turn on the bed for hours before sleeping and I need to rely on melatonin. I guess I was too nervous and scared about the procedures. Or is it just me? I wanna go for the surgery badly yet I’m so scared lol. But thankfully enough, Roy was able to make himself free and accompany me to Korea for this trip!
- No nail polish lest it gets into your wound and causes infection.
Things to bring for a plastic surgery trip:
1. Wet facial wipes. For me I chose Simple because it is alcohol-free and it is mild to skin. As I can’t wash my face for a week after the surgery, this is my only saviour.
Here at my first visit to Grand Plastic Surgery which was conveniently located just meters away from Sinsa-Station. The iconic gold and tall building was really………. GRAND. It doesn’t look like any other normal clinics hehe, I’m truly awed by not only the exterior, but interior too!
While waiting for our consultation with Dr. Ryo……
And goofing around with Jacq in their consultation room.
Dr. Ryo was really busy…………… think we waited for like an hour or two!!
And then we had their in-house consultant before meeting Dr. Ryo, where she will briefly advise on the procedures needed. Some Doctors and nurses would speak to you in Korean but fret not, they have assistants who can speak in all kinds of language!!! Sue (the pretty lady who translated for me) was super nice, helpful and attentive. I was so sad it wasn’t her who attended to me on my surgery day :(
Ok I do not have the photos with Dr. Ryo though :(
But here’s Dr. Ryo intended procedures for me.
1. Full Incision Method Double Eyelid Surgery
2. Ptosis Correction
3. Eye Bag Repositioning
4. Nose Bridge + Nose Tip Surgery
5. Fat grafting
* Forehead (Initial Area)
* Front Malar (Additional Area)
* Chin (Additional Area)
* Nasolabial Fold (Additional Area)
Next up was photoshoot at a particular studio in Gangnam.
The girls who did my makeup and hair were nice and cute~!
