Why Korean Plastic Surgery is Considered the Best in the World

Recently, I had lunch with a friend from Belgium who heads the Asia regional office of a company that engages in online-based crowd-sourcing and creative activities. Having lived in Singapore for seven years, and before that, working in beer marketing for Danone and ABV in France, he’s quite the global citizen, having traveled extensively for his current marketing agency job over the past seven years. Our conversation meandered through various topics until we landed on my recent business trip to Silicon Valley. As we discussed the importance of technology, I asked him, “Do you know where Korea’s Silicon Valley is?” He laughed heartily when I referred to the line connecting Cheongdam-dong, Apgujeong-dong, and Sinsa-dong in Gangnam, well known for its concentration of plastic surgery clinics.

This naturally led our conversation to the topic of Korea’s plastic surgery boom and the abundance of cosmetic surgery clinics. When I posed the question of why Korean plastic surgery is considered the best in the world, he thought for a moment before listing three reasons.

Firstly, the extraordinary level of attention Koreans pay to their appearance. Per capita cosmetic consumption in Korea is among the highest in the world. At the time, our conversation didn’t go much further, but one could also mention how fierce job competition and the importance of appearance as a competitive factor play a role. There’s also the traditional saying, “Clothes make the man,” which could be added to this context.

Secondly, the exceptional manual dexterity and sense of aesthetics Koreans possess. Like a scientist once said about Koreans being adept at picking up beans with chopsticks, the skill level in Korean plastic surgery might indeed be superior to that of other countries, possibly due to genetic factors. Although there are exhibitions in China showcasing intricate skills like carving scriptures on rice grains, he asserted that, on average, no nationality possesses the same level of fine motor skills as Koreans.

This discussion provided an insightful perspective on why Korea is hailed as a premier destination for plastic surgery, highlighting cultural, genetic, and skill-based factors that contribute to this global recognition.

Types of Rhinoplasty Procedures in Korea

We’re diving into one of the most popular realms of Korean cosmetic surgery – rhinoplasty, or nose surgery. Korea is globally recognized for its advancements in cosmetic surgery, and rhinoplasty stands out as a key area of expertise. Let’s take a closer look at the different types of nose surgeries performed in Korea.

Augmentation Rhinoplasty (Low Nose Surgery)

This procedure is for those with low noses, aiming to raise the bridge and the tip of the nose.
It involves using biocompatible materials like silicone, Goretex, or ear cartilage to reshape the nose.
An advantage is that the incisions are made inside the nostrils, leaving no external scars.

Hump Nose Surgery

This surgery is designed for individuals with a hump nose, involving the removal of protruding bone and cartilage.
It focuses on straightening the profile of the nose and narrowing the bridge seen from the front.
The surgery also includes shortening the length of the nose and performing tip plasty.

Tip Extension Surgery (Short Nose Correction)

Aimed at correcting short noses, often referred to as ‘upturned noses.’
The surgery elevates the nose, enhancing its contour and making it appear longer.
If repositioning the tip is necessary, tip extension techniques are used.

Elongated Nose Surgery

This procedure adjusts the shape, length, and width of a nose that appears too long.
Techniques include partial removal or stitching of the nasal tip cartilage.

Crooked Nose Surgery

For those with a deviated nose, this surgery straightens the bones and cartilage.
It often involves septoplasty and cartilage grafting to prevent the nose from becoming crooked again.

Reduction Rhinoplasty (Narrowing Wide Noses)

This surgery corrects wide noses by appropriately removing bone and cartilage from the bridge.
After the surgery, the width of the nose is reduced, making it appear higher and more defined.

In conclusion, Korean rhinoplasty offers an impressive array of options, each tailored to meet unique individual needs and aesthetic goals. From enhancing the nose’s height and shape to correcting structural issues, these procedures reflect the high level of precision and expertise Korean cosmetic surgeons are known for. Whether it’s for functional improvement or cosmetic reasons, opting for a nose surgery in Korea can be a transformative experience, promising not just a change in appearance but also a boost in confidence.

As you consider embarking on this journey, remember that each procedure is a blend of art and science, and finding the right surgeon is key to achieving the results you desire. Korea’s reputation as a leading destination for rhinoplasty is not only due to the advanced techniques and technology but also because of the personalized care and attention each patient receives.

So, if you’re looking to make a change and considering rhinoplasty, Korea’s world-class facilities and skilled surgeons might just offer the perfect solution for you. Remember, it’s not just about changing how you look; it’s about enhancing how you feel and embracing a new you!
