I recently visited VIEW clinic, in Gangnam. I’ve previously gotten a face contouring surgery from another clinic, but it resulted in my skin becoming very saggy, making my face look like I’ve aged. I do modelling as a living, and a model’s job is directly connected with appearance. Not having a smooth jaw & chin line was a big concern as I wasn’t confident enough to be taking pictures from every angle. This was when I decided to go fix this problem once in for all and got on a plane to Korea.
I got the CT scan and X-ray scan to verify the positions of muscles and bones before the doctor’s personal consultation. I was super excited to meet all the specialists that I have been waiting to pursuit my perfect face!
During my consultation with Dr. Yun, he didn’t recommend me any facial bone surgery but a lifting procedure for the problem I had. So I ended up receiving the following procedures:
– Face Lift by Dr. Yun Chang Woon
– Neck Lift by Dr. Yun Chang Woon
– Full Face Fat Grafting Lee Hun Young with PRP (for more youthful skin and face volume)
I was really nervous before the operation but excited at the same time.. but for a couple of days from the surgery,,.. I went to a lot of pain and regrets.
My face was super swollen and I started being extremely insecure. But I could calm myself because of the doctors and staff of VIEW tried to console me a lot and gave me a lot of confidence about the surgery result.
I still had some bruising, but I felt like I could go out in public as my healing process was quite smooth.
I was already able to see a huge difference on my fifth day post-op so finally I could feel better and very happy and could not wait till all swellings and bruises are gone.
You can see the incision line right next to my ears! 🙂
Two-week post-op, the bruises were gone and most of the swelling went down except some on my cheeks. But my face generally felt a lot more lifted and I had a more defined v-line as well as a sharper jawline. The saggy skin I was concerned with before wasn’t a concern anymore. My neck was looking so much better with the skin was all pushed back and gave me a more youthful look with smoother looking skin.
3- week post-op
The swelling was almost all gone at this point and we went to Kyung buk goong and I experienced a little of Korean culture! Here’s a selfie I took ?
Thank you VIEW. I had lots of fun wearing Hanbok and taking lots of selifes with friends. Hanbok is super cute :))
One month post-op, I had a great recovery and my skin smoothed up quite nice. I was so happy that I was able to participate in a photoshoot as a result! ? I was able to put on full makeup no problem.
During my recovery, I got a few deswelling treatments which was great as it was included in the price I paid for my procedures.
Overall, I had a really good experience with View Clinic. I was treated very well at the hospital and all the translators and nurses were so nice. Even at times when I was getting my stitches taken out, or getting my IV, my translator would hold my hand because she knew I was scared of needles. But most importantly… I’m so satisfied with my results!! I’m happy that I chose to go with View. So, thank you VIEW family for your wonderful care. Thank you so much for your patience and reassurance throughout all the times I was doubtful. Every day, I love my look more and more. Thanks so much for an amazing experience in Korea!
