  1. Hi everyone! I was wondering how you started your Korean cosmetic surgery journey. I mean I suppose most of us are in North America, which is a 12 hour long-haul flight away, plus the language barrier. Plus so many fake reviews and advertisements and occasionally horrible news of medical accident there. What are the factors made you decide on choosing Korean doctors. In my own consideration, I'm weighing between, having surgery here is closer to home, legal and medical system is more familiar, to Korean doctors have lots of experiences, maybe more advanced technology (not sure), their beauty standards are more cohesive with mine (I'm Asian). I would really appreciate if you could share your thoughts! Oh I think I should share the surgery I'm considering are sliding genioplasty, super natural looking double eyelid, and some laser skin care.
  2. hi there, I did a Skype consultation with dr. Jamali it was pretty dry. I think I will need to visit him in person to decide.
  3. Hi Bugtype, best luck on your upcoming trip! I appreciate your edit. I have a small child and very limited time for research, and posts like yours really help! I'm very interested in getting my genioplasty at the face dental. I noticed they have good reviews on RealSelf and the fact that Dr. Lee didn't claim his profile on RS gives me a good feeling, against all the heavy marketings from other plastic surgeon. Could you share, if you don't mind, how you get in touch with Dr. Lee? Have you spoke with him directly before your trip? How did you do your research? So far, as my research about genioplasty, I only know RealSelf, RateMD (Canada).
  4. Hi bugtype, I also want to get surgery with Dr. Lee from the face dental, how did you get in touch with him? I manage to talk to a consultant on Wechat, but I would much prefer talking to him directly before I fly to Korea.
  5. Weird I contacted the face dental and a consultant told me I could do genioplasty and eyelid surgery at the face dental? just that the eyelid surgery is with a different specialist?
  6. Hi there, thank you so much for sharing your experiences. I'm also considering the face dental for my genioplasty. How old is your baby, like you, after having a child, I had huge self-esteem issues. I don't even have any picture with my son until recently and I'm unhappy with my short chin that was so evident in the picture. Did you consult with Dr. Lee before you reached Korea? I'm talking with a consultant from TFD named Olivia, and she told me they could also do eyelid surgery with another specialist, weird!
  7. Oh one more question, I wonder if General Anesthesia and a lighter sedation is one preferable over another. Dr. Jamali will use general Anesthesia while Dr. Wittenberg's office told me he uses a sedation rather than anesthesia.
  8. Hi Kino, Thank you so much for your reply. Yes, the Korean marketing scams really scared me away for many many years. I started revisiting it out of desperation for finding a solid doctor. I am in that phase where I'm over alerted and everything seems fishy for me. I would love to read more REAL reviews here. I think it's "korean" focused here but I hope it's ok for me to bring up North American surgeons as well. In terms of techniques, is it fair to say North America has the most advanced training? But maybe Korean surgeons have more advantage in terms of volumn and experiences.
  9. Hi Guys, I figured I'd introduce myself. I'm 34 years old Asian woman. I only found out about my weak chin 2 years ago from an orthodontist who suggested jaw surgery. I was going for it so I started braces. Man it was unbearable and my smiling lines are deeper, my temple area sucken. So I had it taken out after one month, and started researching for a good surgeon to do genioplasty. I figured this is a safe place for me to include doc's name. I'm in Canada, so I interviewed a few doctors and decided on Dr. Wittenberg from Vancouver, he is a maxillofacial surgeon as well as a plastic surgeon. I however canceled my surgery (lost my deposit) because I found out on one RealSelf review, the patient had really negative experience, and then connected with over five patients who had some problems. I also found out about the multiple lawsuits against him (I'm not sure if that's usual among plastic surgeons, please enlighten me). That scared the shit out of me, and I don't know if this is biased, but when I start REALLY reading in between the lines of his review, a lot of them seemed fake to me, please enlighten me on this about Realself reviews. I was so overwhelmed and don't know who I can trust where I can go do my research and was beyond happy to find this forum. Now I'm back on researching again. I found a New York Oral and maxillofacial surgeon by the name of Dr. Manjid Jamali, he seemed to have great reviews on RealSelf, but I don't know how much I can trust those reviews any more. I go by if the reviewer has pictures and had multiple posts, I'd trust it more but if the post was the only one the reviewer had then I question it. Also, Dr. Jamali's reviews on yelp and zocdoc are most about wisdom teeth removal, so I'm not sure again. I found out The Face Dental on RealSelf and Purseforum, Dr. Lee didn't claim his RealSelf profile, does it then mean he wasn't marketing on it at least, which is a good thing? I'm Asian I don't know if it makes a difference to find a doctor who does a lot of Genioplasty on Asian, or it is essentially by a universal proportion. I can't wait to find out more and learn more from this wonderful, safe, honest forum, and I'm sure it will also benefit others who were looking for similar procedures. Cheers!
