Why should I get liposuction in Seoul?

As far as cosmetic surgery procedures go, liposuction is one of the easier ones and it may well have a lesser downtime than other surgical procedures, depending on what area or areas of the body you have the treatment. If you are a visitor to Seoul, you’ll find the capital has plenty to keep you occupied with before or after the procedure.

It is a modern city and you’ll find no shortage of inexpensive, good-quality accommodation options, great restaurants, including local and international cuisine, fantastic shopping and, of course a huge array of entertainment and leisure pursuits.

As far as medical expertise is concerned then you should have no worries. Seoul is one of the world’s capitals of cosmetic surgery – not just for foreign patients but for local patients too. Last year, CBS News reported that more than 20 million cosmetic surgery procedures were undertaken globally – with an estimated 1 million in South Korea. In Seoul, this is part of the culture where plastic surgery clinics are ubiquitous – and where you can find a Medical Tourism office in the arrivals hall of the international airport. Plastic surgery clinics are to Seoul what Casinos are to Vegas.

Of course this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t do your own background checks. It’s always worth checking credentials for your own peace of mind. We understand it’s not always easy to do this when your thousands of miles away, which is why we’ve already done this. We visit clinics, collate real patient reviews and verify qualifications, as well as professional memberships. We only list clinics on our site if we’re happy to go there ourselves and we publish our findings, as well as high-definition clinic photos and other useful information for you to make your own decision.

What’s involved in a liposuction procedure and how long does it take?

One area of liposuction generally takes around 45 minutes to complete, so if you’re having more than one area it will obviously take longer. The procedure involves liquefying the fat so that it can be removed by a suction device, which is inserted through a small incision. The fat can be liquefied by ultrasound or by injecting a saline solution. Once the fat is removed the incision is stitched closed, which leaves a small scar, but which fades over time.

What is the recovery time for liposuction?

You will feel stiff and a little sore after the procedure, and you may be wearing a compression garment which helps with the swelling. Some fluid may leak from the incisions for a few days. Depending on where you have the procedure, it may take a week before the bruising and swelling begins to dissipate and you can move around more freely. You will gradually start to feel better, gaining more movement but you should avoid vigorous activity for 6 weeks.

What is the cost comparison of liposuction in Seoul compared to Australia and New Zealand?
