Is anyone planning to go to Korea 10/25-11/08? 
I am planning on booking flights and would love to meet up with someone who is planning to get surgery done!

When can you start eating sushi after the surgery?! 
Sorry, I really love seafood, and all I can find online is "Don't eat seafood after the surgery."
But my question is.. so WHEN? Lol.. Is it until my eye fully heals? Because then that'll suck, what if my eye takes over a year to settle..... T_T

hello everyone! i too have been following this thread for about 2 years. I have used glue for about 2 years and i have started to notice some sagging of my eyelids. My friend, who just got eyelid surgery, told me that using glue could mess up the surgery. I want to get the surgery asap, but i dont know where to go. Does anybody know a good korean doctor in the chicago area??? thanks!!!

^ you should research online, see their websites, any patient reviews, look at their credentials~ and if you can you should make appointments for consultation and see who you feel most comfortable with!

OK so im planning on scheduling my surgery for this monday with Edward Kwak. Im still kind of curious if Kwak is a good surgeon. Can someone please give me some info about him and his work, I tried googling it but i couldnt find much about him. I just really need some reassurance that im making the right decision here

Hi guys! I am going in grade 12 this year and I will go to Korea to get the surgery next summer. I really want to do rhinoplasty to heighten my nose bridge as well. Do you guys know any place in Busan that does both at once? And how much would it cost?

The sooner you stop with your glue, the better it is! I used glue in the past for 4 years and I stopped a long time ago because I wanted to get the surgery. After a few weeks of not using it, you will notice your eyes getting better and better and the "sagginess" will fade after a while.

Yes, please do NOT use eyelid glue. From personally experience, it did cause the skin around my eyelid to wrinkle more. I used it on 1 eyelid to make it more symmetrical with the other eyelid. GET SURGERY if you are interested in double eyelids. The glue will result in visible wrinkles in ~2 years of using it daily.

Hi everyone! I got my surgery exactly 7 days ago. It was painless and the only hinderance has been blurry vision that's been steadily going away. 
I got it done by a doctor that has has offices in PA/MD. The thing is, he's only in MD once or twice a month, which is where I had it done. He used dissolvable sutures which I read should be removed in 5-7 days to help the scarring. I won't be seeing him until 3 weeks post-op though so I'm a bit concerned. I also want the swelling to go down faster, and I feel like by having the sutures in for that long, the swelling will persist. I can't use warm compresses until after he sees me too... Do you think my recovery process is slowed because he's not in the office that often? Or is this normal for the recovery process? Thank you. :)

^ Does that mean the total wait time for removal of sutures is 1 month for you? That certainly doesn't sound right. Maybe you should contact your doctor.I got surgery a couple days later than you, and had my sutures removed 4 days later. I realized that right after they were taken out, my eyes seemed to heal much better. Hope all is well with you!

^ Hmm, I'm actually not sure what sutures I had... If it isn't tugging on your skin really hard, then I guess it's not a problem?
