Defy signs of aging with a forehead lift in South Korea.
Lines and wrinkles appear when collagen and hyaluronic acid production slows down (which happens to us all as we age). Wrinkles and lines on the forehead become deeper and the skin begins to sag, which makes once-arched brows become flatter. All this makes you look tired, old and even grumpy.
If you’re looking at affordable ways to keep the ageing process at bay then traveling overseas as a medical tourist is one of the options. Obviously, there are a myriad of locations you can choose from but if you are drawing up a list for a location for your forehead lift then South Korea should be on it.
It may not be as popular as Thailand (yet) for Western medical tourists, but it’s certainly on the map as far as the Chinese and Japanese are concerned. It is a favorite destination in terms of cosmetic surgery. It may be a little-known nugget of information, but South Korea has more cosmetic surgery per head than any other country in the world – which tells you that the surgeons here must be experienced.
South Korea has only just begun to market itself as a medical tourist destination, and there is no reason to assume it won’t become a favorite destination given it is a modern country with a decent infrastructure. It already has good hospitals and clinics, but the government is investing in facilities specifically aimed at international medical tourists.
The country has a lot to offer not just medical tourists but holidaymakers too. It has that unique flavor of Asia – a curious mixture of modernity and traditional culture. Cities are vibrant and exciting, and the countryside stunning and tranquil. There’s everything from glorious beaches to mountain peaks and deep, lush valleys, giving visitors plenty to explore. It’s only a matter of time before it becomes another ‘must see’ Asian destination on the bucket list.
The forehead procedure takes a couple of hours, but there are a number of different techniques that your surgeon may use.
The Endoscopic Lift uses an endoscope (a long, thin tube) with a camera and light attached. Through incisions in the scalp, the endoscope is used to remove excess fat from beneath the skin, which is then pulled taught, the excess removed and the remaining skin stitched.
The Open Brow Lift takes a more traditional approach with a long incision in the hairline. Fat and loose skin is removed and the forehead pulled upwards and secured with sutures.
You will obviously feel a little sore after the procedure, and your forehead may feel tight. After a few days you should begin to feel better and you will be able to return to work once the stitches have been removed (usually around a week).
Strenuous activity should be avoided for 6 weeks.
