Hong Kong Patient came for orthognathic Surgery in Taiwan

I had a prominent chin, which drew great attention and became the most outstanding feature of my face. However I did not like it. My dentist suggested I have orthognathic surgery because orthodontics could not effectively improve my chin contour and malocclusion. Therefore I started to search information about orthognathic surgery and found Dr. Ming-Chi Hsieh with proven records and more affordable price than local HK doctors.So I decided to fly to Taiwan and visit Dr. Hsieh.

Before meeting Dr. Hsieh, I contacted the clinic via Email and communication app LINE. It was really convenient. I communicated with the assistants who explained me the procedure and answered my questions in details. After some evaluation, I got an appointment with Dr. Hsieh.

[Step 1] Visit Dr. Hsieh and undergo a full skull exam

Dr. Hsieh was very patient. He listened to my concerns and analyzed my problems in a very professional way.

[Step 2] Pre-surgical planning and discussion, decision on orthodontic options, schedule for surgery

Based on the results of 3D CT-scan and 3D navigation measurement, Dr. Hsieh showed that apart from a protruding chin, I also had facial asymmetry problem. With the aid of 3D computer aided surgical simulation system, my protruding chin and facial asymmetry were corrected through orthognathic surgery.

I decided to complete orthodontic treatment also at Charm Cosmetic United Clinic. Therefore I need to fly to Taiwan regularly for orthodontic visit. It is convenient. The flight tickets from Hong Kong to Taiwan are cheap. Sometimes I could make it to fly to Taiwan and back to Hong Kong on the same day. If I have any questions, I could contact the clinic right away without language barrier.

Dr. Hsieh's highly efficient surgery-first orthognathic approach vs. traditional orthodontics-first orthognathic approach

  Dr.Hsieh's highly efficient surgery-first orthognathic approach Traditional orthodontics-first orthognathic approach
Pre-surgical orthodontic treatment Not required 1-2 years
Start of post-surgical orthodontic therapy 1-2 weeks after surgery 1-3 weeks after surgery
Duration of full treatment course Possibly less than 1 year Minimum 2 years
p.s. Actual situation can vary depending on individual patient's condition

The recovery and healing process was shorter than I expected. Only during the first week I experienced some discomfort and inconvenience, particularly during the meal. Now it is about 5 months after surgery, I feel good with the healing and outcome. It is worthy flying to Taiwan getting treated by Dr. Hsieh.
