Sorry for taking so long to blog about my plastic surgery. So here is your long await post.
Photo taken from my hotel room.
In this post i am going to share with you about my day to day recovery. My surgery was scheduled in the afternoon. I’m glad that they manage to slot me in as i’m only staying for 2 weeks in seoul and they are fully booked. I guess it is the winter season, i was told that the cooling weather helps to boost your recovery. There were many locals and tourists(people from China, Singapore, and Canadian etc) at JW Plastic surgery korea clinic. I’ve had mentioned about the procedures i am going to do in details in my previous post.
Without all the make up and thick lashes, i desperately need some enchantment.
THE FINAL PROCEDURES
After bombarded my doctors with questions during consultation and much consideration, long story cut short, I am going to have Incisional(cut method) double eyelid + Potsis correction surgery (by Dr. Hong Lim Choi), tip and bridge rhinoplasty (by Dr. Man Koon Suh), Full face fat graft (by Dr. Chul Hwan Seul).
Not to bore you with words, let the photos do the talking.
This is Emily one of the manager who speaks really decent English. She is very patience, professional and very strict with us on the aftercare. She also take care of us during our stay in Korea message me just to check if i am fine. She even offer to send me home after my surgery. How sweet!

I personally fear of double eyelid surgery because i am awake during the surgery. Many of you asked me if double eyelid surgery is painful it really depends on individual. For me it is a painless process. I won’t lie about the pain as i don’t seem the need to. Dr Choi injected all areas, I only could feel someone is touching my eyelids. I felt a little discomfort when Dr Choi is doing the potsis correction procedure as he was re-stitching my eyelids to make sure both my eyes look the balance. I’m not sure how long I was in the operation room. All I did was praying to God and dying to get out of the operation room. Haha
FATS GRAFTING & NOSE JOB
I don’t know about other patient, both procedure is painless to me. I suppose it was the numbing injection. To my suprise, I felt normal after i woke up from general anesthesia. I can literary eat and go shopping after my nose job and fats grafting.
See the transformation(left to right):
After eyelid surgery, after full face fats grafting and after nose job.
Some food picture which i had after surgery. I was so hungry! I had to fast the day before.
My medicine and pumpkin juices(there were more, i consumed some already) from JW Plastic Surgery Korea.
POST OPT DAY 1
POST OPT DAY 2
Tried, ugly, sad.
It is really depressing to see myself like that. I had cottons in both of my nostrils, i couldn’t smell or taste anything. It felt like having a blocked nose which makes me tired. I felt really ugly because of the swell. Carry a tissue box everywhere i go because there were lots of mucus.
To avoid infection, cleansing is VERY important. I clean my wound day and night with cleansing water from the clinic. Then gently dry it with cotton bud. Last, apply gel(from the clinic) which helps to close the wound properly.
Agri and i were on a hunt for food around our hotel. Literary eat from point A to point B. We ate so much everyday!
POST OPT DAY 3
I felt horrible because i couldn’t smell or taste anything still. I just want to rest in bed. Swelling was slightly worst than day 2. On a brighter side, i love my fuller forehead. 🙂
POST OPT DAY 4
Remove cottons & eyelid stitches x Hair wash
I had my eyelids surgery the day before fats grafting and nose job. So my eyelids were already on it’s post opt day 5. The nurse is very gentle she goes slow and careful. I was expecting pain because everyone told me it is painful. Am I lucky or what, it was ZERO PAIN! I believe it is Dr Hong Lim Choi’s skill. Stitches are very small and easy to remove said by the nurse from JW plastic surgery Korea. I also had the cottons removed so i can breathe from nose and eat properly!
I was amazed by that that swell went down so much on day 4. The bruises around my eyes and face turns yellow. I feel slightly better than day 3.
After days of no wash my hair, i finally getting a nice hair wash. JW Plastic Surgery Korea provides 2 free hair wash service to all patient! Awesome!
Then lunch at GANGNAM-GU.
Waffles at Edea again!
Visited dog cafe in Myeongdong which cost only SGD 8 per entry with 1 free drink.
Brunch at MyeongDong at 1am. We couldn’t stop eating!
