Korean Plastic Surgery is More Popular and Extreme than Ever
Posted November 29, 2011 in Plastic Surgery News, by Dr. Fiorillo
Korea has been known as a plastic surgery mecca where residents undergo some of the more extreme procedures. In recent years, plastic surgery has increased in popularity even more. This is because people in the country are opening up about their plastic surgery rather than trying to be discreet about the fact that they have been having it. With this trend, the surgeries have become more extreme.
In the past, it has been nose jobs and the reshaping of cheekbones that have been popular. Now, procedures like double jaw reconstructions are making an appearance in cosmetic surgery for the first time. Previously, procedures this extreme were reserved for individuals that required surgery for reconstructive purposes.
Korean doctors attribute the changing trends to the exposure that the internet and TV both create. The before and after pictures that end up posted online clearly reveal the results of a surgical procedure that has been completed.
