Procedures on Trend

1. Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is  always on the most-popular-procedure list. It differentiates Korean methods and methods from the rest of the world. What makes Korean eyelid surgery so popular and unique? Firstly, Korean method is more about “design”. It puts emphasis on designing the most beautiful eyes that suit your face. Harmony is the keyword. Moreover, Korean methods are labeled “less painful”, “fast recovery”, and “natural looking”. The operation only takes 30mins to 1h. They removed the stitch 7 days after the surgery. Normally double-eyelid surgery is performed along with canthoplasty or ptosis correction based on different types of eyes.


2. Rhinoplasty

Commonly known as nose job. Moreover, it is the second most coveted procedure ranked right after eyelid surgery. What Korean rhinoplasty surgeons are excellent at is they can design the most suitable nose for your ethnic nature and aesthetic sense. Indeed, foreigners who get their nose job done in South Korea have no need to worry about the gap between Western and Korean aesthetic sense.

3. Face contouring

You can call it “the highlight of Korean plastic surgery”. Korean surgeons have applied the methods of reshaping or restructuring facial bones for cosmetic purposes for years. In Korea, face contouring is not only limited in V-line surgery. It can be cheek bone reduction, V-line, and jaw correction performed at the same time to build a smooth facial outline. Face contouring might be the most complicated and high-risk procedure. Cutting as much bones as possible does not mean achieving the best result.  The point is cutting the correct part of bone based on every patient’s condition. 3D scan technology that most Korean plastic surgery clinics are equipped with helps doctors check the structure and thickness of bone precisely. Thus they will present the safest surgical method, avoiding blood vessels and nerves.



Emerging K-Methods

Especially for people who contribute most time to work, returning back to work as soon as possible after the surgery is crucial. Minimally invasive methods would be the best choice for people who require “speed”, as well for those who are afraid of pain and side effects.

Minimally invasive anti-aging treatments

You might have heard about thread lifting and Acculift, two typical minimally invasive anti-aging treatments. To clarify, as the name tells, thread facelift is a technique that tightens the skin through inserting self-dissolving threads. While Acculift applies laser to evacuate facial fat.  Compared to traditional facelifting methods, they are less invasive, causing less pain. Besides these, Korean clinics are performing new anti-aging treatments like air ulthermage, elasticum, etc.


2. Stem-cell therapy
