    Effect of the menstrual cycle on intraoperative bleeding in rhinoplasty patients


    This study aimed to evaluate the effect of menstrual cycle phase on intraoperative bleeding in rhinoplasty patients. One hundred seven female patients grouped as G1 (perimenstrual) and G2 (periovulatory) according to menstrual cycle were included in this study. Intraoperative blood loss was compared using the t test. Fifty-two of the patients were in G1 and 49 were in G2 group. Operative surgeons, presence of additional interventions, and operation duration did not differ among the groups. Mean intraoperative blood loss was 69.0 ± 24.6 ml in G1 and 80.4 ± 27.7 ml in G2. The blood loss difference between the two groups was statistically significant. This study demonstrated that perioperative blood loss is higher in patients operated on during the periovulatory phase. This increase does not seem to create difficulty during the operation or to have an impact on the outcome. Nevertheless, this might be reflected in more pronounced ecchymosis in the early postoperative phase.

    tl;dr: avoid scheduling your surgery when you are ovulating to reduce swelling and bruising.

  2. I asked two of the plastic surgeons in consults about how frequently they do surgery, and they both said that they consistently have to do heaps in winter but very few in October. I also noticed that around October there are lots of promotions as well. This information has helped me a lot — thank you so much for putting this information together!

  3. I've put together a list of the doctors in this post + names in Korean + websites. Hopefully this is useful to someone else!

  4. I am not primarily here to use plastic surgery (directly) to become happier. I am here to use plastic surgery as another way to improve my appearance in order to further my career and increase my income.


    However, the researchers did find a big difference between men's and women's salaries when it came to grooming. Controlling for factors such as age, race, education and personality traits like agreeableness and conscientiousness, they compared how interviewers rated people on attractiveness, how they rated the same person on grooming, and that person’s salary.
    In other words, the study suggests that grooming is important for both men and women in the workplace, but particularly for women. Changes in grooming have a substantial effect on whether women are perceived as attractive, and their salaries. In fact, as the charts below show, less attractive but more well-groomed women earned significantly more, on average, than attractive or very attractive women who weren’t considered well-groomed. (The research doesn’t say how much of these extra earnings were then blown at Bluemercury or Sephora.)

  5. I haven't personally had FC, but I did read this interesting post recently:


    I read a lot of horror stories about ID hospital on realself. One woman got V line surgery and they ruined her face and she said that she is always in pain and her face started to sag after the surgery. They don't tell you that a lot of Kpop stars after V line surgery need constant botox to prevent jowls/facial sagging after the loss of jaw bone.


  6. I'm dancingpear, and I'm hoping to get double eyelid surgery in Korea. I saw a post on Reddit saying that this forum is more legit than purse so here I am 🙂
