Is old age making you look tired and grumpy? Check Eyebrow Lifts in South Korea – an up and coming medical tourist destination that offers world-class facilities, medical expertise and prices that are even lower than its popular neighbors.
South Korea might not be the first name that enters your head in terms of a holiday, or in terms of a medical tourist destination – but you shouldn’t discount it. In fact, it is a technologically advanced country – more so than other countries in Asia, and also ahead of western nations like Germany in some aspects. For example, not many countries can boast high speed internet services throughout the whole country – but South Korea can.
This love of technology extends throughout South Korea’s many industries, including healthcare – they have more CT scanners than Germany, and more MRI scanners than the UK. What this tells you is that it is no backward, third-world country – far from it – and you can expect to find modern facilities, state-of-the-art equipment and medical expertise in exactly the same way you would at home. In fact, South Korea has the highest number of plastic surgery procedures per capita than anywhere else in the world.
If you love Asia, then South Korea will not be a disappointment. It has contemporary cities, charismatic landscapes and a charming combination of traditional culture with 21st century living.
It is only just now beginning to be on the medical tourist radar, but it won’t be long before the world realizes that South Korea has a lot to offer both medical tourists and everyday holidaymakers – so get in now before the rush starts!
The surgery for eyebrow lifts usually takes a couple of hours. Your surgeon may use one of the following techniques:
A long incision is made in the hairline, or in one of the creases in the forehead. Excess fat is removed from below the skin, which is then pulled taught, excess skin trimmed and the remaining stitched.
This uses the ‘keyhole surgery’ approach where an endoscope (a long thin tube) is guided through small incisions made in the scalp. The tube is fitted with a light and camera which beams images from under your skin to a monitor in front of the surgeon. Guiding the endoscope, excess fat can be removed and the loose skin tightened via incisions in the scalp, which of course will be hidden once the hair grows back.
This is a combination of both the Open Brow Life and Endoscopic Brow Lift – typically used for crow’s feet.
You will experience some discomfort after surgery for a few days, and there may be swelling and bruising. Many people go back to work once the stitches are removed – usually a week later.
Taking things easy is advisable for several weeks – no heavy lifting or strenuous exercise especially.
In South Korea eyebrow lifts are around 50% of the cost compared to Australia.
