Swelling still hasn't gone down UGH. I think it's because of ptosis correction. The area around my eyes are all tense and swollen. I wish the effects of epi and lateral cantho were more visible though :/ Barely anything has changed! Probably going back for a revision during the winter. Of course I'll have to wait until all the swelling goes away, but I think most of it is gone by now. Was it too much to expect HUGE ulzzang eyes after just 1 surgery? ;___; (I heard some celebrities even had upto 4 surgeries before their eyes were GIANT)

Im not sure about the doctor yet because from all the posts i've read about banobagi, only a Dr lee was mentioned. But i saw from their website they have 2 doctor lees.
Are you happy with ur results?
Mind telling me who did yours? was it incisional or non-incisional? Was it a primary surgery?
What method do they refer?

Banobagi seemed to be more objective... incisional was obvious for me but I don't think they cling to that method or anything.

I had mine done at Dream with dr. park and I have the same exact situation as you! my right eye is falling lower than the left, and the left is perfect which I'm worried about because I think they have to redo both for symmetry purposes. Can you tell me if dr. kim measured both eyes and drew a line for the suture marks or anything? Because dr. park just did my left eye and skipped my right eye which I'm wondering is why it came out so great. He responded to my email and he said that it maybe due to muscle asymmetry which makes sense. I did notice that when I tried using eye glue for my right eye, it was not as easy to do as my left and after I stopped using the eye glue, my left eye still had a little crease but my right eye eventually disappeared completely. I am going to be doing a re visional but not sure if I should go back to dr. park in korea or go to dr. kenneth kim in LA. I just hope because they are partnered, that I do not have to pay for the re vision

HI! i've been a silent lurker on this thread for more than several years now.
thanks for all the help/tips/experiences!
just got my surgery yesterday by Dr. Eric Choe (Manhattan). finally!!
i had an amazing experience and LOVE my results so far. cant wait until im completely healed.
he is so pro. no wonder so many people got it done from him. he's literally a celeb in my area Haha
as everyone else stated, he is such a good-hearted, nice man. really makes you feel comfortable.
&since he doesnt have a daughter, he thinks of it as "adopting us" for a couple of hours while we're in surgery with him.
highly recommend dr. choe! his secretaries/assistants are SUPER sweet too.
fyi: got incisional, with some fat/muscle removed (i had super heavy, hooded, fatty eyelids).
if you have any questions, feel free to PM me!

Does anyone know someone who underwent lateral canthoplasty revision? I haven't seen any case of it really anywhere but I know that surgeons perform it. I had lateral canthoplasty about a month and 2.5 weeks ago. At first I really liked it but then as time went on I realized that the inner corners were horribly asymmetric, disfigured, and unnatural looking. The corner on one side droops too much compared to the other almost causing a negative canthal tilt. My eyes on both sides were pulled too much causing pink/tendon show rather than the actual whites of the eyes.
I would give anything to take turn back time and just not have gone through with the lateral. I feel so foolish and am full of regret. I just wish that there was some hope out there for me. I just hope to get it to a more natural and hopefully my old angle placement.

I got both of your messages, but I can't message you back! It says that you blocked me

Hmm so how are your results from Dr Kwon so far? Is your crease a small tapered one or a large one?
ssuigeneris wrote on 09 August 2011 - 08:55 PM:
I'm quite pleased so far but I'm at peak swelling and won't be able to really judge until my stitches come out. My crease is medium, in/out fold.

Did you get other stuff like epi or ptosis correction? How much did the whole procedure cost?=)
ssuigeneris wrote on 10 August 2011 - 02:14 AM:
I had very minimal epi done (or at least that's what I emphasized to Dr. Kwon). Like I said, hard to tell what it's going to look like. No ptosis correction in a million years. 2.5 million KRW.
