ASTIQUE CLINIC X HY CALIFORNIA

Yes you’re not the only one who noticed my eyes are looking brighter & more awake as time goes by. No more eyebags, no more under-eye wrinkles, no more sunken under-eyes. I’m about to let you in on my secret!

I’ve been bothered over the hollow area under my eyes for a long time & yes the fat grafting was good while it lasted. But damn do I hate my high metabolism rate at times, the fats have decided to bid me goodbye & yes I’m back to having sunken-looking under eyes. Decided to drop by ASTIQUE CLINIC to see what can be done to restore youthful-looking eyes again.

No point waking up in the mornings & pin-pointing the flaws on your face & have a bad day over it. It really gets on my nerves when friends question me : AGRI DID YOU HAVE A LATE NIGHT? YOUR EYES LOOK SO TIRED! The thing is I’ve sufficient sleep & I feel rejuvenated. I understand many would tell me to age gracefully but when it comes to physical appearance, it all boils down to my personal preference. Looking good makes me feel good naturally.

Anyhow, I was introduced to a couple of fillers & with the recommendation from DR. MATTHEW YAP, I went along with the JUVEDERM VOLBELLA. He promised minimal pain & he really kept to his words!

Decided to get BOTOX done for my under-eyes to reduce fine lines too. Voila I’m done &  pain factor is only 2/10. The bruise is also minimal there’s no problem heading out right after! The only thing you’d possibly feel afterwards is some teeny weeny soreness which goes away quickly after a day.

Happy to have my entire under-eye area filled up now, in fact it’s looking so taut now I feel almost 21 again. You can also see how visibly smaller my eye bags have now become! Who dares tell me I look tired now? Can’t wait to head back in 2 weeks to see if any touch-up is required.

THE TAMARIND SPA X TATSU TEPPANYAKI

If you’ve known me long enough, you know my life’s not all about crazy parties 24/7. On days where I decide to take a break (yes all that dancing does give us quite the body ache), I usually gather with my closed ones for an ultimate pampering session. We always make it a weekly affair to give our overworked bodies some tender loving care & catch up over tea + cupcakes. It’s spa time, baby!

CIMG9823b

A good friend of mine previously checked out THE TAMARIND SPA at UPPER THOMSON ROAD & highly recommended it. I’ve known her long enough to only fill me in on good stuff! Without much hesitation, I decided to visit the place together with my babes. Their menu is pretty extensive I must say, ranging from RELAXING MASSAGES to RENEWING SCRUBS to PAMPERING BODY WRAPS. I am definitely spoilt for choice, but eventually settled for the MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE (much needed to drain all that toxins from my body) & the SEA SALT SCRUB WITH ESSENTIAL OIL (exfoliation for sexy back).

I actually fell into a deep sleep during a massage & woke up feeling extremely rejuvenated. If you must know, I have been suffering from insomnia for the past month & am literally a walking zombie everyday. It’s been a long time since I felt this relaxed, I sincerely thank my therapist’s nimble fingers. My friend really wasn’t joking when she said how skillful & experienced the therapists here were & that I’d definitely love the massage here. I doubt we’d be visiting any other place anytime soon!

CIMG9829b

SAM_5315b

Damn, I still can’t get over how soft my skin felt after that scrub! In fact, I’m tempted to try out the BLACKBERRY SCRUB on my next visit. They’ve got a huge selection of scrubs, you’re bound to find a scent that you’re attracted to. I highly recommend THE TAMARIND SPA because of the good experience I’ve had here from the moment I step in. Did I also mention their in-house tea was so addictive I happily helped myself to a third serving?

Finally found the time to squeeze a mini vacation for this coming weekend, I simply can’t wait! Meanwhile, let me get started on the never-ending workload. Have a good week everyone!


KLARITY BEAUTY BRUNCH X JODEFY

Attended KLARITY’S BEAUTY BRUNCH the other day with my beautiful babe. Despite the super lack of sleep, we managed to make our way here at 10 in the morning. Yes we deserve a pat on our backs! When it comes to trying out new beauty products, we’re always game.

Honestly, don’t you think the LASERTOX CC MIRACLE WHITE LOTION has such a nice packaging? Okay I admit, I’m a sucker for all things hologram. GOT TO HAVE IT.

CIMG2149b

Thank you KLARITY for treating us all to such a wonderful feast! No matter how sleepy I might be, the minute you put a platter of food in front of my face, I am awakened!

Needless to say, my babe & I can’t resist taking gazillion photos at the event since the lighting at SALT GRILL & SKY BAR was perfect for us. Just in case you’re wondering, we didn’t plan to come dressed in tropical themes Great minds think alike!

CIMG2164b

Ten minutes later, we’re still at it. Damn we need to take a break from the camwhoring already!

You know how a lot of the BB/CC Creams out there in the market do not deliver results like they promised & at the end of the day, your face ends up looking like a mess. Trust me, I’ve had my fair share of makeup fail moments but I won’t let a couple of bad experiences stop me from giving new brands a chance. I’ve given KLARITY’S LASERTOX CC WHITE LOTION a shot for a month now & definitely loving how LIGHTWEIGHT it feels on my skin + it also has WHITENING BENEFITS(another good reason to love it even more)! Yes slab it on & you look one tone fairer instantly. This has become one of my favourite CC Cream alongside Rachel K CC Cream!

CIMG2186b

CIMG2183b

If you’re looking for something with full coverage, this wouldn’t do the job. I personally love using it as a sunscreen though since it helps to brighten up my skin instantly while protecting it at the same time!

//JODEFY//

Thank you JODEFY for sending out this AMAZON DRESS IN TROPICAL! It’s such a beauty & the quality is supreme. I don’t usually wear dresses like these in the past but I must say, I have started to become more ladylike these days. Hurray!

HAIR VISUALS X TAMASHII ROBATAYA

I know I’ve started to MIA-ed again on this space, this always happens during the middle of  the year since friends from all over start to visit & being the good host that I am, I want to make sure they have a splendid time while they’re here. Thank you for still visiting my blog despite my disappearance, I’d continue to post up nice pictures to feed your hunger!

Anyhow, I’m done ranting. It’s the time of the month to banish my damaged ends (snip snip snip) & give my hair the beautiful blowout it deserves. Yes I’m still very much loving my hair dark  at the moment, so I guess I’d just be concentrating on a series of intensive hair treatments for now.

Thank you KEVIN KOOL for continuing to care for my hair unconditionally. Hair does not feel limp anymore & is immediately strengthened after this MILK ANTI-FRIZZ TREATMENT. Unknown to many, but on a good hair day, my mood is instantly uplifted & I probably wouldn’t be so cranky. This probably means I need to see my stylist MORE OFTEN! Sometimes, I wish I can work the hairdryer just like he does!

Of course, KEVIN KOOL doesn’t just specialize in giving you beautiful blowouts, he’s really good at creating pretty/edgy-looking braids too. I definitely need to get one done real soon & show you!

Do I look feminine or what with these soft curls? Thank you once again KEVIN KOOL for always making me look incredibly womanly even though I’m very tomboy-ish in reality! Now that I’ve got flaunt-worthy hair, it’s time to take it to dinner & let everyone be green with envy!

SALON LE POINT is located at 1 CUSCADEN ROAD, #01-07/08. Call 9729 7081 to make an appointment with my stylist KEVIN KOOL & quote ‘AGRI’ to get a discount on all hair services!

BEAUTI INSTINCT X GSS PROMO

Insomnia hits me once again & everyday I’m sleeping at unearthly hours. Think I really need to cut down on my caffeine intake. To make matters worse, the amount of alcohol I’ve consumed for the past few months was somewhat unforgivable. Alcohol is a foe I’ve been dying to stay away for the longest time but sadly, to no avail. You’d probably think with such a nasty lifestyle, my skin probably looks lacklustre & is in need of some serious help. Rather, it’s the opposite & you wonder why?

Not that I’m suggesting that nightlife is good, but if sometimes you don’t have a choice because you’re such an owl like I am, there’s always solutions to combat dull-looking skin. Now that I’m all seasoned, I don’t wait till the eleventh hour to get my skin fixed & expect BEAUTI INSTINCT to perform a miracle (even though they can). Nowadays, it’s more on maintenance since it’s in a pretty good state now. If you wonder why I’m constantly singing praises for BEAUTI INSTINCT, it’s really because the skin I have today I really owe it to them. The first time I stepped in for treatment, my skin was a disaster (really bad acne + acne scarring), you can request for my pictures if you head on down for consultation & you’d be utterly shocked.

Anyhow, long story short, here’s the two treatments I’ve been doing with them recently to get my glow on. Don’t say I never share my secrets!

DATSUMO LABO X HACHI

Feels good to finally be back in Singapore, I’ve been flying so much these days I rarely have time to rest in bliss. But before that, let me visit DATSUMO LABO for my monthly hair-removal treatment! I am such a hairy monster this is necessary & I’m always happy to know with each visit, I’m a step closer to having silky smooth skin head to toe.

CIMG9959b

CIMG9958b

CIMG9943b

This time round, I’m back to get my lower leg & underarms  hair-free! What keeps me coming back here is the fact that the treatment is painless & I see immediate results. I’m so happy to see how DATSUMO LABO has expanded in such a short time. Congratulations! With all the branches available, you’re sure to find one close to you. I always frequent the ORCHARD BRANCH since it’s the nearest to my place, but they’re opening another branch in ORCHARD CENTRAL pretty soon & I can’t wait to check that out! Let’s be hair-free & fairer together girls!

HAIR VISUALS X LONG BEACH

Blame it on my fickle mind, now that I’ve got slightly lighter-coloured hair, I start to miss dark-coloured hair. Although, frankly speaking, platinum blonde is still my favourite colour, I don’t think I’d be able to put up with the painful process ever again. See I’m not one person that’s easy to please, thank goodness my stylist KEVIN KOOL always puts up with my nonsense! He works my hair like a pro each time & it’s no longer damaged like the past.

CIMG4809b

CIMG4819b

CIMG4800b

Tried out the MILK BATH OXYGEN TREATMENT this time round & I love it so much I’m gonna do it again on my next visit! It helped to eradicate all the frizzy ends & my hair feels so healthy-looking & smooth now. & oh IT SMELLS SO GOOD TOO! Thank you HAIR VISUALS for always pampering my hair!

CIMG4858b

CIMG4836b

CIMG4876b

Really love this dark shade KEVIN KOOL did for me this time round, at least I wouldn’t have to deal with unsightly roots for a while.Yes it’d take a lot of getting used to, but I think it’s something different for a change in a good way! Does it not look incredibly feminine?

ASTIQUE CLINIC X WHEELHOUSE RESTAURANT

You know how I’m constantly on the lookout for skin treatments to make my skin better, & yes I don’t deny I’m vain, but really who isn’t?

CIMG3174c

Today I’m back at ASTIQUE CLINIC to try out this amazing 3-IN-1 LASER with DR. MATTHEW YAP that promises CLEAR & RADIANT-LOOKING SKIN immediately after. My girlfriend Sarah has tried this treatment a couple of times & I go jelly seeing how pretty it makes her skin & the best part is the effect lasts for about 2 weeks!

CIMG3175b

CIMG3169b

CIMG3170b

Of course this is effective for people who are breaking out, but since this month I’ve gotten that department under control, I’m really just hoping to lighten some faint leftover acne scars & achieve even-toned looking skin without make-up! It’s all about the fresh-faced look these days, ain’t it?

CIMG3190b

CIMG3194b

Lucky me to be under the care of such a suave doctor! He always makes sure my face is red-carpet ready, thank you so much DR. MATTHEW YAP!

CIMG3226b

CIMG3207b

The whole process was painless, all you feel is a warm sensation. And in any case, if you feel the heat is too much for you, you can let the doctor know & he’d adjust the temperature accordingly.The NEW IPL TECHNOLOGY doesn’t have the rubber-snapping effect like in the past, phew! I did an additional GLYCOLIC PEEL afterwards to KEEP BREAKOUTS AT BAY & ATTAIN A SMOOTH CANVAS for a FLAWLESS MAKEUP APPLICATION for the next few weeks at least.

CIMG3231b

CIMG3249b

CIMG3258b

Right now, I’m good to leave home with a dab of lip stain & I look like I’ve full make-up on already. So really, the secret is not loose powder or foundation, but the combination of a GLYCOLIC PEEL & a 3-IN-1 LASER. Can’t wait for my next appointment with ASTIQUE CLINIC.

Went for dinner at WHEELHOUSE RESTAURANT after I was done.

MILLY’S X IPPUDO TAO

Finally found the time to get my nails a lil’ tender loving. No place makes me feel like a princess more than MILLY’S, because really my manicurist is so good you should be jealous! Each time I see Chloe, I’m super excited to challenge her with out-of-the-world design & yes each time I’m defeated. She’s so talented she leaves me speechless each time. Even people around me who’s seen my nail designs cannot believe it’s hand-drawn.

Look at Chloe concentrating at work!

CIMG3270b

Just take a look at the final product! Oh Chloe, time & time again you blow my mind! I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!

CIMG3280b

CIMG3283b

CIMG3290b

I love how MILLY’S take such good care of not just my nails, but my hair too! There are some days where I want to feel more feminine & short hair just doesn’t do the trick. Thank goodness for MILLY’S CLIP-ON EXTENSIONS, I’m able to transform my look in under 5 minutes everyday, whenever I feel like it.

CIMG9287b

It’s really easy to put on & trust me, I’ve partied all night in it & danced like there’s no tomorrow in it. I must say, IT CAN WITHSTAND ALL THAT TURBULENCE! MILLY’S CLIP-ON HAIR EXTENSIONS are really the BEST THING EVER.

HAIR VISUALS X HAIR AFFAIR

Sometimes I may be fully made-up & dressed up to the nines, but the look’s not quite complete without a nice hairdo. At times like these, I’m so thankful for my hairstylist – KEVIN KOOL for always making me feel like a million bucks. I know I’m always giving him a heart attack because I seriously enjoy stressing him out with my never-ending requests but never once has he turned his back on me & in fact he goes the extra mile to making sure I’m satisfied with my look. He’s that passionate about his work & anyone who’s chosen him as their stylist would agree with me 100%.

In this post, I’d do a compilation of all my hair looks done with HAIR VISUALS. Thank you for restoring my hair into a healthy state with all your miraculous treatments, my hair has gone from limp to strong over time. Next time when my hair starts to grow longer, I’m definitely gonna attempt a side swept braid!

JW PLASTIC SURGERY KOREA PART 4

Today I’m about to share with you the final post on my plastic surgery series. I’m gonna warn you in advance, this post will be super image-heavy!

During my recovery period, I had to deal with a lot of comments saying : Oh your old look was better, you looked much sweeter in the past. Now your facial expressions are more restricted, you can’t seem to smile as sweetly as before. Chill guys, it was barely a month back then. Obviously my face was really tight from all that fat graft & the doctor also advised against smiling widely for at least a month if I want to achieve fantastic results for my rhinoplasty procedure. Here’s a recap on what I got done – SUB-INCISION EYEBROW LIFT+ OPEN RHINOPLASTY + FULL-FACE FAT GRAFT.

//A MONTH POST-SURGERY//

CIMG2878b

CIMG2875c

CIMG2879b

CIMG2880b

As time goes by, I started getting a lot of positive feedback from my family & friends telling me I look a lot younger. Two months have gone by now & most of the swelling have subsided by now. My face is settling really well & it’s no longer as puffy as before. As for my final nose result, it’d still take a few months more & I seriously can’t wait for that. But currently, it’s already looking so good I can’t be happier. Really glad to have chosen JW PLASTIC SURGERY KOREA to get my surgeries done, the doctors were really attentive in listening to my concerns & really understood what I was looking to achieve. Everyone there took such good care of me, it really helped in my speedy recovery.

//TWO MONTHS POST SURGERY/

CIMG3918b

CIMG4324b

CIMG9356b

CIMG3916b

You can tell by this time my face is starting to look a lot more natural & I’m pretty much back to my crazy self. No more tightness & hurray to seeing such a smaller-looking nose & straight nose bridge! If I’m already satisfied at this point, I cannot imagine how much better it’d look when it finally settles. I’m no longer self-conscious about taking frontal shots anymore now that the bulbous nose has bid me goodbye.

Watch the last part of my plastic surgery journey video series! You can see how swollen my face & nose were at the start but it’s all good now & I’m feeling more beautiful than ever. Thank you so much JW PLASTIC SURGERY KOREA!

THE PRESTIGE X EYELASH EXTENSIONS

En route to get my virgin eyelash extensions done at THE PRESTIGE EYEBROW & LASH SPECIALIST. Yes I know I’ve mentioned before I would never ever get them done, but seeing how beautiful they look on most of my girlfriends, I can’t help but to feel a tad jealous. I want to feel beautiful like Barbie the minute I wake up. Let’s take a look at some of my pictures before I got the lash extensions done – looks pretty barren doesn’t it unless you view it up-close.

Since it was my first time, I opted for a more natural finish. You can opt for a more dramatic finish if you like. The process was so comfortable I actually fell into a deep slumber. Jacqueline recommended the KOREAN MINK EYELASH EXTENSIONS & I’m glad I took her advice. It was so weightless & smooth, feels exactly like real lashes nobody would know they’re fake.

Sorry for the lack of updates again, it’s all those travelling that’s making me so sleep-deprived & almost running low on energy. I will recuperate pretty soon & get back to my diligent habits.


BEAUTI INSTINCT X BREATHE TO BEAUTY

 I know my birthday has just gone by & with the month-long celebration (yes people always try to kill me with too much alcohol)), it’s hard to keep up with good skin but I sure know how to cheat. At the end of  2 weeks, my skin is still looking as radiant it was from day one despite having an alcohol diet every single day (no i don’t encourage it). YES IT IS POSSIBLE.

There’s a couple of treatments which I highly recommend at BEAUTI INSTINCT. One’s the ROLLER TREATMENT to remove superficial to deep scarring, sadly I have to keep that on hold for a while since my face is still recovering from surgery. The other’s the BREATHE TO BEAUTY TREATMENT (SO GOOD I WISH I HAD THE MACHINE AT HOME) .

In short, it’s an oxygen infusion procedure that feeds serums packed with vitamins, minerals & collagen into the skin. I always refer to this treatment as the EXPRESS RED-CARPET GLOW. You’d see an immediate change in skin texture afterwards. Try it to believe it!

beautiinstinct1

I had the OXYGEN INFUSION done with OXYGEN AMPOULES to make the treatment more power-packed than it already is. Together they help to regenerate skin cells & maintain skin hydration. When it comes to caring for my skin, I only want the best & I want to see immediate results that last.

beautiinstinct2

Here’s how I look right after the BREATHE TO BEAUTY TREATMENT. And here’s the real reason why I’ve stayed with BEAUTI INSTINCT throughout : I see instant results & with more visits, my skin just keeps looking better than the previous visit. My skin used to be in such a bad state I’d pile on multiple foundation to hide my flaws but these days all I need is sunblock + a touch of gloss & I’m ready to go.

JW PLASTIC SURGERY KOREA PART 3

 Here’s the post you’ve all been waiting for! I’ve attached the video too for your viewing pleasure, but I must warn you, my swollen eyes might just throw you off, don’t say I didn’t warn you. Having a nasty allergic reaction to a medication on the day of my OPEN RHINOPLASTY + FAT GRAFTING SURGERY makes me look incredibly groggy. Oh boy it’s so ugly I can’t believe I’m putting this up for the whole world to see.

_________________________________________________________________

HERE’S SOME OF THE NECESSITIES  I PREPARED BEFORE SURGERY:

1) DETTOL ANTI-BACTERIAL WIPES to wipe off dried blood below the nose.

2) BIFESTA CLEANSING WIPES for your face because your wound & stitches cannot come into contact with water.

3) BIORE POWDER SHEETS to wipe your body since you won’t be able to shower for a couple of days after fat grafting.

 4) COTTON BUDS to apply medication on your wounds & stitches.

_________________________________________________________________

Prior to surgery, I had to fast 6 hours before. You have no idea how difficult it was looking at everyone else eating all that scrumptious food especially if you’re a hungry monster like me. I was almost dying from all that hunger & was so close to punching  the next person who waves an egg bread at me.

I’ve already addressed why I wanted to get an OPEN RHINOPLASTY done – TO RID MY BULBOUS NOSE TIP, ACHIEVE A STRAIGHT + HIGH NOSE BRIDGE & HAVE A SMALLER-LOOKING NOSE overall for a more proportionate canvas. And also, FAT GRAFTING to MAKE ME LOOK MUCH YOUNGER THAN MY ACTUAL AGE.

Here DR.SEUL has just made his markings on my face to inject the fats. I looked like an animal on the loose!

My face looked really full after surgery & the sight of having no wrinkles/fine lines was really mind-blowing.It takes a while to process, but yes Agri you have successfully turned back time. Thank you so much DR. SEUL, I’ve never been happier to look the way I do now & I’m willing to eat like a dinosaur more so from now for the fats to last longer. And my side profile looks so good now because I have a smaller-looking nose without any hump & my bridge is restored with cartilage. Also, frontal shots are not a problem now that my bulbous nose is non-existent. Thank you so much DR.SUH!

I have people telling me ‘Oh I prefer your old look’, but really there’s a thing called downtime & during recovery period with all that swelling, it’s really not the final look. For nose surgery, it takes about a year before you see the final result. Besides I have so much faith in JW PLASTIC SURGERY KOREA to sculpt a better-looking me.

Honestly speaking, I felt no pain at all during & after the surgery. The only thing I felt was MASSIVE HUNGER. Let’s take a look at how I look right after. Lo & behold, what a sight!

As usual, after surgery, I was hitting the streets in search of some comfort food (pumpkin porridge spam), yes with that huge cast over my nose.

Dinner round two because I’m really a hungry monster in my past life.

HERE’S SOME RULES TO STICK BY AFTER RHINOPLASTY + FAT GRAFTING SURGERY FOR EXCELLENT RESULTS:

1) Sleep with your head elevated for a month so that the fats remain intact

2) Try not to smile/laugh for a month because your nose tip might droop & your face will hurt from all the fat grafting. (SUPER HARD TO DO BECAUSE REIEE & I LAUGH ALL THE TIME)

3) No wearing of sunglasses/spectacles for a month or it might create a dent on your nose bridge.

______________________________________________________________________

You’d have to return to the clinic almost daily to get your stitches cleaned by the nurses & I’m not complaining, because JW PLASTIC SURGERY KOREA provides complimentary hair wash + manicure service! TOO GOOD!

My daily diet everyday consists of pumpkin soup & juice thrice a day for 14 days. It helped to de-swell one day at a time. Being super ambitious on the 3rd day & trying to gobble a drumstick. Mission failed, my upper lip was still feeling tense & I have to resort to peeling it piece by piece.

Trust me, I’ve had my fair share of ‘depression’ after surgery upon looking at the mirror. Chances are, you’d feel this more upon removing your nose cast. It’s really normal because you’re so swollen & you might not feel good about yourself. Especially when you’ve got your nose tip reduced, your nose will look bigger than your previous nose due to the swelling. But as days go by, your mood starts getting uplifted. Waking up is really a process I look forward to each day because my nose just starts taking its shape each day. I really thank everyone at JW BEAUTY for being so patient with me & Korea for  its good weather.

Let’s take a look at my day-to-day recovery!

There’d be a final post on my plastic surgery series very soon. Thank you again DR. CHOIDR. SEUL &  DR. SUH for correcting my flaws & making me feel more confident than ever.

MILLYS X DING DONG

Here’s a short update on pictures from all over the place!

Long Beach @ Dempsey with the beautiful Venice while she was here on a day trip, but the mischievous me made her miss her flight, yikes! I had so much fun with her though from the spontaneous hair wash to multiple meals to hotel hunting to midnight foot massage/movie. Come visit Singapore again pretty please!

Went to Milly’s to beautify my nails once again. I’d never lose faith in Chloe because she’s just so good at what she does. Decided on a bold red this time round with a lil’ bit of spunk! The finishing is just way too awesome I’d let the pictures do all the talking.

Can’t wait to see what design she’s got in mind for my birthday nails coming up real soon!

There’s so many interesting eateries on Club Street & this one was a really good surprise for me. Even though there was so much greens & I had to painstakingly remove them bit by bit, the food was so mouthwatering delicious!

JW PLASTIC SURGERY KOREA PART 2

Today’s the day I’ve been so excited for I could barely sleep a wink the night before! Also I had to fast the night before because there was a possibility I would be getting my first surgery done. Woke up early morning for consultation at JW Plastic Surgery Korea, which also explains why I had my eye mask on.

Met Emily for the first time in person, we’ve been liaising via email for a couple of months now & it was great to finally meet her! If you must know, she looked after us like a big sister for the entire trip & I’ve never felt more thankful!

Filled out some forms before waiting to see the doctors & we went a lil’ crazy camwhoring today, after all it might be the last time we’d be seeing our old faces, it’s time to keep some memories!

First up, I went to see Dr. Seul for fat grafting consultation. Prior to this trip, I’ve been really eating a lot more than usual so that there’d be more than enough fats to extract from my thighs. According to Dr.Seul, the fats quality from the thigh is better than the tummy. He told me the areas where he’d be injecting the fats & honestly, I couldn’t wait to get started!

CIMG8268b

Next, I went to see Dr.Choi for eye surgery consultation. I had addressed to him that I’m looking to achieve deep-set looking eyes & to make them look less tired. I was initially advised to get Incision Ptosis Correction/Double Eyelid Surgery to even out + open up both my eyes but upon hearing that I have to lay off contact lens/glasses for a month, I decided this procedure might not be for me since I’m a blind bat without contacts.

Dr. Choi then suggested I did a Sub-brow Incision Eyelid-Lift Surgery together with a Forehead Lift so that my eyelids wouldn’t look droopy anymore & I thought an eyebrow lift would do wonders for me. Decided to put the forehead lift on hold for the moment since I haven’t hit the big 30 yet!

Lastly, I went to see Dr. Suh for nose surgery consultation. I already like my side profile of my nose but I believe it could be further improved without the droopy tip. From the side view, my nose looks hooked & it makes me look older than I am. I am looking to achieve a super straight nose bridge, more equivalent to a man’s nose, because I notice a girl’s nose bridge from the side is more curved.

From the frontal view, my nose tip is bulbous & is not proportionate to my other facial features. He assured me he’d do his best to give me the nose that I desire (straight nose-bridge,less bulbous nose, no droopy tip) & I believe in him because I’ve heard so much about Dr.Suh having magical hands when it comes to sculpting a beautiful nose.

Did a CT Scan & realized all that nose fillers I’ve done over the years measure up to 5mm! I had to get jabbed again to dissolve all the fillers that was left in my nose. Goodbye to you fillers, I’m really to go for the real deal.

Strip off all that makeup (leaving just the eyeliner on) & with all the nose fillers dissolved, this is what you get. Told you my face was in desperate need of some fats to regain my youth & my eyes were really sleepy-looking without eyeliner no matter how big. Also, you can tell that my face is not symmetrical.

Here Dr.Choi is making his final markings on my new eyebrow position.

Two hours after the surgery, doesn’t it look like I just got an eyebrow embroidery done? The stitching was so refined you’d barely notice I got anything done. I took a quick rest on the comfortable heater bed before raiding Myeong Dong to get my year’s supply of masks. I really wasn’t feeling weak one bit & had no urge to sleep! #thisgirliscrazy

Can you spot the pair of deeper-set looking eyes & the distance between my eyelids & brows are brought closer? Very happy with the results because now my eyes look awake without any makeup! Thank you so much JW Plastic Surgery Korea & Dr.Choi ! I’m still in the swollen stage at the moment, there’s a downtime & I’d be showing you more pictures on the progress & final result in subsequent posts.

If you’re looking to get plastic surgery done, don’t be afraid to ask the doctor about anything you’re unsure of, because ultimately it’s your face & nobody knows it better than you do so it’s important that you understand what procedure you’d be going through so that you’re mentally prepared.
