Plastic Surgery in Korea

2023-10-17


South Korea has built a global reputation thanks to its thriving beauty industry, especially in the field of cosmetic surgery. The Korean beauty industry, along with K-pop and K-drama, has popularized the “Korean look.” With its advanced medical technology, highly skilled surgeons, and unique aesthetic approach, Korea has become an ideal destination for those looking for various forms of cosmetic enhancement.

 

Eye surgery

Eyes are one of the most defining features of one’s face, said to be the window to the soul. Big eyes with larger iris than the white area of the eyes are considered more beautiful in Korea. The ideal vertical height is around 8-10mm with a horizontal length of 27-29mm. The optimal ratio of the inner and outer half is 4:5. While this is said to be the “golden ratio” of a beautiful eye, beauty is subjective, and each person has different eyes that are proportionate to their own face

 

Korean eye surgery is very meticulous and detail-oriented. Surgeons focus on the patient's desires while customizing the procedure to enhance their natural features. This creates results that are authentic and harmonious to their overall face.

Nose surgery

The nose is at the center of the face. While the nose is not the first thing people notice, the “right” nose can bring harmony and balance to the entire face. The ideal nose is said to follow the vertical facial fifth rule. When splitting the face into fifths, the ideal nasal width is equal to the middle fifth of the face. This is equal to the width of the person's eyes.

According to the horizontal thirds rule, the nose should be one-third of the overall face height. The nose should be similar in height to the upper and lower face for a more balanced proportion.

Our face is often the first area to show signs of aging. Wrinkles, saggy skin, dark circles, and crow’s feet are big contributors to aging skin. While aging is inevitable, we all dream of aging as gracefully as possible.

There are anti-aging procedures that can help slow down the aging process and keep you looking younger, fresher, and more beautiful.

The most susceptible signs of aging include the face and neck. The following procedures will reduce fine lines and wrinkles and tighten any sagging skin to produce a younger appearance. There is a diverse range of options for those seeking to combat the effects of aging and rejuvenate their appearance. Choosing the most suitable procedure depends on the individual’s goals and the expertise of a board-certified surgeon.

Body Sculpting

Having a beautiful body shape that meets your expectations and suits your overall body is desired by women and men alike. Body sculpting or contouring is a series of medical or surgical procedures that aim to reshape the area of the body. It may involve getting rid of excess skin, eliminating fat, or shaping or contouring certain areas. However, it is important for patients to take an active role in maintaining the results with regular sports, balanced nutrition, and a healthy lifestyle.

Dermatology

How you care for your skin greatly affects your overall health and appearance. There are many reasons why taking care of your skin is important, including your health, self-confidence, youthful appearance, and preventing future skin problems. As you age, the skin cells regenerate less frequently, losing jovial radiance and showing signs of aging. Skin treatments can regenerate new cells and promote clear and glowing skin.
