Patients opt to have their breast implants removed for a number of reasons: it could be because of complications, safety reasons or the implants in the breasts are too old. South Korea is one of the best places to visit for this treatment as it is both affordable and offers high-quality surgery. Here are some reasons why you should have your breast revision procedure in South Korea:

  • South Korea is the Plastic Surgery Capital of the World

  • Plastic surgery is perhaps too popular in South Korea : both men and women in Korea take beauty very seriously, and added to the local demand are patients from China, Japan, and other Asian countries. Now savvier Westerners are traveling for inexpensive yet high-quality procedures, ranging from surgical treatments such as liposuction, facelifts and tummy tucks to non-invasive laser and dermal filler work.

  • World Class Medical Facilities

  • As you would expect from a first-world country, South Korea’s medical facilities are world-class . South Korea is also one of the world’s technology hub, so the medical equipment is state-of-the-art and more than meets international standards for safety and hygiene.

  • South Korea has Lots of Activities

  • In your free time in South Korea, you will discover much to do. From touring the high-tech capital Seoul to visiting the semi-tropical Jeju Island, you will have no difficulty filling your time in this amazing country.

    What is Involved with a Breast Revision?

    Breast revision surgery normally takes between one to three hours . Adjustments to the breast pocket will be made to either house a different size implant or tighten it up. If old scar tissue needs work then it may take longer. Incisions are made over existing ones so there is no additional scaring.
