Why have facial rejuvenation in South Korea?

South Korea might not be on the tip of everyone’s tongue as far as a holiday or medical tourist destination, but it is becoming more popular. It has 12 cultural and natural UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Medical tourists from other Asian countries, notably China and Japan, have known about South Korea’s expertise for some time – and because of the American Forces presence in the country, there is a steady stream of US patients too.

Cosmetic surgery is very popular with the locals – in fact, even teenage girls are whisked into hospital for a plastic surgery procedure as a present for passing their exams! It is certainly not frowned upon, as can be seen by the number of people sporting facial bandages and dressings on the Seoul Subway.

The country is not a backwards, third-world nation – far from it. Cities are modern and vibrant and disposable incomes are high – hence the popularity of plastic surgery.

Hospitals and clinic facilities are contemporary, well-equipped and medical staff well-trained and qualified. However, while these general observations are true, we would always recommend you do your own research. Check out doctor qualifications, professional memberships and online reputation. Look for clinic and hospital websites – do you like what you see? There is no foolproof way of assessing reliability, but by looking at a number of important areas like these, you can give yourself a pretty good idea.

How long does facial rejuvenation take and what’s involved?

Facial rejuvenation is not a one-size-fits-all treatment. Patients can have any number of treatments and combinations to specifically address the areas they are concerned about. For example, one person may want a lower facelift if they have a problem with jowls or marionette lines and a blepharoplasty for baggy eyelids. They may also decide on a dermatology treatment to refresh the skin, such as microdermabrasion. Another person may decide on a mid-facelift, a neck lift and rhinoplasty. The combinations are endless and so it’s not easy to give an accurate figure of what’s involved on a general level. Some parts of the facial rejuvenation procedure may take part many months after the initial surgery.

What is the recovery time for facial rejuvenation?

Any surgical procedure will take a few weeks to settle down with bruising, swelling and some discomfort apparent. A full facelift will usually take several weeks longer to heal from than the other surgery. Any strenuous activities, including heaving lifting and vigorous exercise should be avoided for 6 weeks.

What is the cost of facial rejuvenation in South Korea compared to Australia and New Zealand?

Facial rejuvenation in South Korea costs 50% less than it does in Australia.
