Plastic Surgery in Korea  

In the new age South Korea, more and more modern Koreans are seen to be image-conscious and are unafraid of undergoing under the knife to improve their looks and increase their self-confidence

​In fact, advertisements on plastic surgery are highly encouraged through widespread television broadcasts and banners plastered everywhere on the nation’s walls. It is without a doubt that modern Koreans see a necessity to look attractive and confident in order to stay competitive in search for their future careers and love. Henceforth South Korea plastic surgery is best known for its excellent medical services due to extensive experiences from the influx of both locals and internationals seeking over to enhance their appearances.

Renowned Surgeons Specializing in Asian Features

Medical undergraduates in South Korea are required to undertake 11 years of intensive training before being able to specialize in plastic surgery and be qualified as doctors.

National medical tourism conferences and discussions are frequently organized by the Korean Tourism Organization (KTO) and Korea Health Industry Development Institute (KHIDI) to ensure knowledge of Korean doctors is continuously updated with the latest and cutting-edge technological and medical developments. Together with competent translators from Medical Korea Service, we promise a smooth consultation process between patients and surgeons as it is vital to be accurately understood in order to prevent disappointment and dissatisfaction. Korean surgeons are highly specialized with Asian features as they understand the standard beauty and body compositions of Asians better than other plastic surgeons. For instance, they recognize that Asians desire fair and youthful looking complexions, big round eyes, well defined noses and V-line face shapes. This might be less understood and agreed by western or other standards of beauty largely due to culture differences, although foreign surgeons can just be as skilled.
