By  |  | News


Cosmetic surgery is all the rage in Seoul, South Korea, with a whopping 20 percent of women between the ages of 19 and 49 admitting that they have been under the surgeon’s knife.

Figures released by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) have shown that the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures for these young women are double eyelid surgery to reduce the excess skin around the upper eyelid and make the eyes look bigger, lipoplasty, and rhinoplasty (nose jobs).

Korea is also a popular place for medical tourism with patients regularly travelling to the country for plastic surgery from places such as China, Japan, the Middle East and Africa.
