Top 5 Cosmetic Procedures in South Korea

Asia has become the go-to destination for medical tourism as hospitals from Seoul to Singapore add technology and well-trained physicians to their teams. Industry experts say that medical tourism in Asia will grow at a rate of 15 to 20% a year, thanks in large part to an influx of newly rich people in China and elsewhere in the region, according to Reuters.

Based on reports in the popular media glorifying cosmetic surgery attitudes in East Asia, South Korean population has the highest rate of going under the knife in pursuit of beauty. Holding 24% of the world’s plastic surgery market share, it is no secret that South Korea is the plastic surgery capital of the world. With such a demand for plastic surgery in this country, it is not surprising that there are hundreds of procedures to modify one’s appearance, and we selected five of the most popular, which are quite common amongst Korean girls and boys in their late teens and 20s.

1. Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
2. Eyelid Surgery
3. Chin Contouring
4. Liposuction
5. Breast Implants
