Plastic Surgery: Korean Wave Growing Among Asians

Plastic Surgery: Korean Wave Growing Among Asians

Plastic surgery among Asians reflects the “Korean Wave.” Cost is not an issue, as they are willing to pay up to three times more for surgery in Korea.

Asian WomanPeople from China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Singapore and Hong Kong are flocking to Korea these days for facial bone contouring and cosmetic surgery on their eyes and noses.

The trend was reportedly spawned by what many are calling the “Korean Wave” – the rising popularity of Korean celebrities.

Asians from other territories want to look more like popular Korean actors and musicians. And they’re willing to travel and pay up to three times more for plastic surgery than they would in China.

Currently, the number of foreign patients in Korea is 33 percent higher than it was in 2008, and they reportedly spend twice as much money as regular Japanese tourists.
