Hey there Sexy Bunnies of the internet! Phew, I just got back from a late night movie with my friends and watched the latest Maze Runner Sequel “The Scorch Trial”. Its almost 2am here in Malaysia, and I’m sitting here in my hotel room trying to wake my brain up to write this post for y’all.
Before I start rambling about my surgery experience, I want to thank you guys all so much for all of your support. For those who had watched my videos, silently supporting/subscribing, and to those who came all the way from watching my surgery vlog to this post, THANK YEW ALL SO MUCH!!!! I really could not be happier here writing this post for you guys. I am so blessed to have your love and support in my life. You guys are the reason why I kept going and still posting videos until today. Once again from the bottom of the BOTTOM of my heart thank you and I LOVE YEW ALL BUNNIES! *wiping happy tears*
Let me give you guys a little background on Docfinder Korea before we move on to the blog post surgery okay?
So what exactly is Docfinder Korea?
Docfinder Korea is a medical agency accredited by the Korean Government. They introduce good and reputable clinics and doctors for foreign patients. Imagine not knowing anything and blindly looking a random clinic online and just go there without knowing their reputation. What if that clinic had cases before and we don’t know it? What if they are black listed? Scary right?
Docfinder Korea will be giving you all the information you need about the clinic you desire to go. They are not like other typical Korean medical agency, most of their staffs including Shin used to work in the plastic surgery clinics before for a long time so, they know the insight on clinics and will be giving you all the information you need about it. Also Docfinder Korea will inform you list of clinics that are currently blacklisted and will not be recommending you going there. They will only recommend you guys good and reputable clinic.
Is Docfinder Korea Service free?
Yes, Docfinder Korea works on a commission basis with clinics. The commission does not affect the price you pay to the clinic because they already have fixed price list. whether you guys use their service or go to the clinic yourself you will be paying the same price.
So while its free, why not right?
So what are their services?
- They will be giving you a medical advice
- Give you the hospital/ clinic & Doctor Information
- Hospital/ Clinic & Hotel Reservation
- Pick up & Transfer
- Bargain with the hospital
- Solving any problems that may occur throughout the medical trip
- Accompanying you throughout the whole medical procedure from consultation to surgery after care.
- Monitoring and checking whether clinic change doctor (to prevent ghost doctor)
- Take you to super market or hair salon or any place you need to go.
- provide a free shopping tour after surgery.
So awesome right? For more information go to www.docfinderkorea.com
PLEASE NOTE BEFORE READING THIS POST: If you guys have weak stomach and not a fan of seeing someone being bandaged and have pipe inserted in their mouth, then you can click out right now. I made this video to share my experience with my viewers and readers. It is not my intention to scare or traumatise anyone or whatsoever.
Here are some questions I want to answer before we go ahead on this post.
What kind of Surgery did you do Sunny? and What is Facial Contouring surgery?
I did double eyelid (Non-incision and Ptosis correction) and Facial Contouring surgery.
As for double eyelid, Non-incision is the current double eyelid surgery “trend” method. I notice people go for this method because it is by far the most natural looking surgery for eyes. Also your Doctor will recommend you this surgery if your eyelid is thin and doesn’t have much fat. If you do then your Doctor will most likely advice you to go for incision method. Ptosis correction is basically an eye lift. Usually it is included in one package of double eyelid surgery to make the eyes look more awake. I am really glad they did ptosis correction on me because if they don’t my eyes will still look a little droopy after surgery. For monolids I recommend doing ptosis correction, especially if you wore a lot of double eyelid tape before. What has it got to do with double eyelid tape?
You see, if you wear double eyelid tape quite often it will sag your eyelid. You will notice this when you start seeing wrinkles on your lid and feel you look more sleepy than usual. If this is what is happening to you, ptosis correction is definitely needed.
For Facial Contouring I did, Zygoma which is pretty much shaving off the prominent part of your cheek bone to make it look smoother, Angular jaw which is cutting the jaw line area to make the feature look more v shape and also smoother and finally Genioplasty or can be known as chin implant which is quite self explanatory here helps to make your chin look sharper to complete the v shape look.
Okay now lets get back to business!
Where did we stopped from the last blog post?
Oh right! so we were a day before my surgery right? So this post is going to walk you guys through THE day of the surgery and also my post operation vlog.
If you are new and just so happened to stumbled across my blog here is part I for you:
Here’s my blog post on part I as well:
The day before surgery I was told not to drink or eat anything 8 hours prior to the surgery and final consultation. So the night before I chugged myself so much water to avoid feeling dehydrated or thirsty when I wake up after the surgery.
Finally the day has arrived Ladies and Gentlemen! I was very much looking forward to my surgery. Unlike other patients, I
wasn’t nervous (just kidding I was a little and Miyake was there comforting me and made me feel less nervous, THANKS BABE!). So First stop I had to meet Claire again for one last consultation with the Doctors. I think it’s great that Banobagi has this double consultation system, I get to be sure of what I want by going to the consultation again for one last time before the surgery. What if you guys change your mind the next day right? So having another consultation is very good (just in case you changed your mind and want something different). Double consultation gets an A+ in my book. Love it.
So just like in my part one post, I had to see Claire before I see Dr. Lee and Dr. Oh. Claire here will be helping you to communicate with your Dr. She speaks excellent English and very friendly too. So don’t have to worry if you guys can’t speak Korean, Claire will be assisting you for your consultation with your Dr. You can tell her what you want for your surgery and Claire will be delivering your concern accordingly to the doctor during consultation. Other than consultation, I had to sign some documents and Claire also gave me a run down of what will happen before the surgery and the whole pre operation and post operation procedures. For me I hate the idea of not knowing what will happen to me, I’m the kind of person who loves to be in control of my body the whole time. So by having Claire walking me through all these procedures really made me feel more relieved and know what to expect when I wake up (believe me it wasn’t scary at all).
After seeing Claire, I was rushed to see Dr. Lee from Eye and Nose department who will be doing my eyes. I did not change my mind, I still wanted the same type of eyes I have mentioned in my Part I Vlog, so I told him nothing changed, except, I want the inner crease to be a little bit close to my eyes so that it won’t look tapered. I wanted a semi tapered- parallel eyes to make it look unique and also bigger without making it look too big like parallel (if that makes sense). Dr. Lee said it won’t be a problem. So all set for eyes!
Moving on, after meeting Dr. Lee, I was rushed to see Dr. Oh.
Same like my previous consultation I told him I wanted slimmer face, and I also want my chin to be slightly pointier. So I asked Miyake to help me photoshop my face and make it slimmer but still looking natural. Dr. Oh looked at the photo and said looking it can be done and won’t be a problem. All set for Facial contouring!
NOW THE TIME HAS COME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN~!
The next thing I know I was in the surgery room. I had 2 surgery in one day. First I one I did my eyes. The nurse/ anaesthetist put me on a sleeping anaesthesia for my double eyelid surgery and then next thing I know they woke me up and rushed me to the other operating room and put me on general anaesthesia for my facial contouring.
I have a funny story for you guys, so during my first operation I was sleeping but half conscious.
Nana (Banobagi staff who was assisting me throughout my stay in Banobagi Guesthouse) she was supervising my double eyelid surgery and she told me I was swearing the whole time until the surgery finish. lol my goodness, I rarely even swear in day-to-day basis and don’t know what got into me. I don’t even remember a thing. She said Dr. Lee was just laughing throughout the surgery, I had no idea what I said. I’m pretty sure it sounded something like this ” Stupid F-ing monkey king kong !!” lol.
Now moving on to 2nd surgery, I remember the nurse woke me up from the first surgery to move to another room for my facial contouring surgery. I had no idea how I got there but I remember lying down and tried to count sheep (well nobody told me to count but I still did cos that’s what they ask you to do in the movie right? Stupid Sunny still did) and guess what guys? I think I was still high from the previous anaesthesia, so as soon as I counted 1, I blacked out. LOL!
Next thing I know I woke up and I remember Miyake and Shin from Docfinder Korea was there in the patient room! I had no idea what they were saying most of the time (was super high)
Most of you guys asked me this question on instagram , “Sunny did it hurt when you wake up?”
Okay here’s what I think, who ever said facial contouring surgery (Zygoma, Angular Jaw and Genioplasty) was not painful, (It can be for some people) it WAS for me. I’m just being completely honest, this is a major surgery that requires shaving off your cheek bone and also cutting your jaw line area. It is cutting your bone so of course it will hurt. There is no such thing as feeling nothing when you undergo a major surgery like this.
When I woke up from the surgery,I remember I felt sore around my jaw area but it wasn’t to a point I wanted to cry and all that drama. It was manageable but still very sore. I remember first 3 hours I was asking for painkiller from the nurse because it was really getting me but I had no idea I already had painkiller in my IV so the nurse said they couldn’t give me anymore. So, all I did for first 3 hours after I woke up was trying to get back to sleep to make the sore go away.
1 Week After Surgery (my face looked like I just got stung by 50 bees) lol
2 Weeks After Surgery
Day 1 Post OP
I noticed I was not as swollen as I thought I would. I thought I would be like twiddle dee or something. Turned out quite okay. Dr. Oh came and check on me and he said my face is expected to get more swollen from day 2 to 6 and then it will slowly deswell.
Day 2 Post OP
Day 2 as expected my face went from normal Sunny to hello potato faced Sunny! lol
I could’t eat anything until my one week mark. I was strictly on liquid so that was the only toughest part of facial contouring surgery. Other than that it was all okay and bearable. Honestly looking back now If I can turn back time and go back, I will still do this surgery. Seriously, no regrets at all. As for my eyes I couldn’t feel anything. I read somewhere If you do two or 3 surgery on your face, usually the most painful one will dominate and the rest you won’t even feel the pain. I agree with this because I couldn’t feel the pain for my eyelid at all. It was just like as if I’m wearing a double eyelid tape kind of feeling. uncomfortable but no pain at all.
Fast forward to Week 2
The swelling went down like 40%, and I could open my mouth a little. The swelling was not as bad as last week, I can just wear make up and walk around Myeongdong without mask on.

During my post operation healing process, Banobagi provided variety of treatment, from Oxygen treatment, facial, massage all the way to skincare treatment.
at Banobagi Skincare Clinic to do PRP Treatment
The staff is taking my blood for PRP Treatment >.<
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP is a natural formula created from your own body using your blood. It may sound scary but its not believe me, they will only be drawing a little bit of your blood to formulate the plasma. This plasma is called PRP, once they have already formulated it they will inject it back to your skin. PRP helps to generate collagen to make the skin feels moisturised, soft and help to tighten the skin. You can only see the improvement or result one week after the injection. I personally really love this treatment, right after 1 week my skin felt really smooth and also my make up applied even nicer than before.
If you guys are not a fan of plastic surgery clinic, I highly recommend you guys to go and check out Banobagi Skincare Clinic. I will definitely be back again next year for another PRP treatment.
Seriously, I love Banobagi so much, their service is really good. If I want to do any enhancement in the future I will definitely come back to Banobagi.
with Dr. Ban
with Dr. Oh (I’m a big fan of him so had to ask him to take photo with me after our last consultation lol)
So to conclude this post, the surgery was successful. I am very happy with my result thanks to Dr. Lee and Dr. Oh from Banobagi Clinic. Highly recommend them and also Docfinder Korea.
