The Ultimate Guide to Liposuction in South Korea



Top Clinics in South Korea




Introduction


Last fact-checked: 20 December 2020

With liposuction in South Korea, you can melt away stubborn fat and get that more toned look you want⁠—all while saving money on this popular procedure. 

Liposuction can be used on many areas of the body, including the tummy, butt, hips, thighs, arms, back, and face; with Medical Departures, you can find reliable clinics at prices that are a fraction of the cost at home.

Why Should I Have Liposuction in South Korea?

Surprisingly, South Korea isn’t on the tourist map for Westerners as are some other Asian countries–at least not yet. But if you generally like visiting Asian countries, then it should be on your list. The people are warm; the cities are modern and exciting–especially Seoul–along with stunning countryside and coastlines to explore, and recuperate.

Medical tourism is big here – so much so that upon arrival at Incheon International Airport, you'll encounter a medical tourist office, and you can’t miss the countless advertisements for beauty and plastic surgery clinics.

Koreans think nothing of improving their face and bodies; from graduating school girls to retirees, just one indication that surgeons in this part of the world are highly skilled and experienced. 

Liposuction is a relatively straightforward procedure in comparison to other surgical techniques, with relatively minimal downtime. However, this shouldn’t stop you from conducting your own due diligence. With so many clinics to choose from at low prices, you want to make the right choice in your clinic and doctor, which is why Medical Departures does its own background checks.

We list professional memberships and qualifications on our site; and provide real patient reviews and high-definition clinic photos, as well as lots of other useful information, including prices. We also visit clinics personally and only list those on our site that we would be happy to visit ourselves.

What Is the Recovery Time for Liposuction?


You may have to wear a compression garment after the procedure and you will more than likely feel a little sore. Fluid may lead from the incision area for a couple of days and there may be bruising and swelling which reaches its peak after about a week. You will, of course, need to take things easy and you will feel stiff, but once the swelling and bruising start to subside, you will feel increasingly better and more mobile, gradually being able to resume your normal activities.

Strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for six weeks, and you should plan to spend a few days after your surgery in South Korea confined mostly to your hotel (rather than strenuous activities or sightseeing). 

How Much Can I Save on Liposuction in South Korea Compared to Australia and New Zealand?


The average cost of liposuction in South Korea is around 50% less than it is in Australia, as an example.
