Hi guys, I feel like not many people on here mentioned VG Plastic Surgery ( maybe because the place is not heavily promoted in foreigners).I’ve been silently considering my revision rhinoplasty because I’ve never been satisfied with my primary rhinoplasty.It always felt like a really big decision to make but I constantly got annoyed at my nose. I hated taking pictures from the front because of my uneven nose ( kind like collapsed the left side of the nose).I found out about VG plastic surgery by chance while I read the reviews on the Purseforum blog, someone has mentioned the name of VG. I stumbled across a video on YouTube and Instagram. I liked the whole feeling of the hospital so I contacted them.They do 1:1 online consultation which was nice. The English consultant Julia, she is the one who assisted me and arranged for me to get a direct online consultation with Dr.Im Young Min ( CEO of VG and specialized in revision rhinoplasty ). She worked tirelessly to help me when I was doing online consultation and in-person consultation in Korea, to just before and all throughout after my surgery. She was always making herself available to me either in person at the clinic or online via LINE. She's probably one of the busiest employees at the clinic as she handles all of the English speakings foreign patients. I really appreciate her.Dr.Im Young Min is really good with rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, and alarplasty ( has natural & dolly looking results). Dr.Im seemed professional and straightforward about what can and cannot be done. I feel like it’s better to know beforehand instead of being disappointed because of unrealistic expectations.It’s about 3 months post-op and so far I am liking the results. I have not regretted getting my revision rhinoplasty at VG Plastic Surgery. Overall I have a great experience and now I’m waiting for my final results ❤️

I haven’t had any type of plastic surgery before so I was a little nervous going in, but all the staff at 1mm made it really easy for me. My areas of focus were the lower abdomen, lower arm, axillary breast tissue and inner thighs. During my online consultation they let me know that since I was already slim mini lipo would be a better option for me. When I came in for my in-person consultation the doctor and consulting staff were very thorough in asking what kind of shaping I wanted and also letting me know what would and would not be possible, which I appreciated. On the day of the surgery I was quite nervous but as they explained what was going to happen it helped calm me down and by the time it came to the actual surgery I was more excited than anything else. Before the surgery I met with the doctor one last time so that he could map the areas. He said he thought I looked pretty calm. Nice to know I’m good at acting. Right after the surgery I met with the doctor again who explained how everything went, which it thankfully went according to plan, and just answered any questions I had regarding aftercare. I’ve heard instances of people describing the procedure as painful but rather than that I would say it felt more like discomfort equatable to a muscle ache. I was even able to catch a bus home myself a few hours after. This was my first ever surgical procedure of any kind and the doctor and staff at 1mm really made it a pleasant experience throughout. My korean isn’t great so they always had someone there to translate for me and just stay with me to answer questions or just help me feel more relaxed. I didn't have anyone accompany me to any of my appointments so that was really nice. All in all it was a positive experienced I know where I'm going to go if I ever decide to do anything else.

I am delighted to offer a review for ATOP Plastic Surgery Clinic. From the moment I received my first reply from Leah on my inquiry for council from ATOP until my last follow-up, I have been treated with care and kindness throughout. The professionalism by the entire staff has always been shown and helped ease my concerns of the potential procedure. In addition, since I do not speak Korean and only English, both Leah and Anna who spoke excellent English were always available for accurate translation. After my first conversation with Anna, she explained all the details and answered all my questions quickly and thoroughly. Once Dr. Ahn came in for the consultation he was extremely nice, professional, and helped me understand what the best course of action would be to correct the brow sag that was affecting my peripheral vision. While my sagging brows were affecting my vision, it was also affecting my ability to read without getting extremely tired. Once the procedure was complete, I immediately noticed the difference and was able to read without getting tired and my peripheral vision was greatly improved. Thank you, Dr. Ahn and staff for your professionalism and kindness and I will offer my recommendation to those interested in the ATOP Plastic Surgery Clinic.

Christy was simply amazing and very helpful. Her English is exceptional and she was extremely friendly which really helped me with my anxiety. My case was difficult as my previous Rhinoplasty was infected and got really bad and I was scared that I wouldn’t be able to get my normal nose back. However, Dr Kim was a true professional and he was honest with me that he would only be able to fix about 80%. To be honest I was disappointed hearing that but in the end I’d rather have a doctor who is upfront with me about what he can and cannot do than making false promises. I am now more than half a year post op ( 8 months) and the nose is shaping up alright! Albeit the parts where he couldn’t fix still bothers me a lot but all in all I’m glad to have a normal life back. Thank you Dr Kim, Christy, and all the staff at April 31!

What you need to know about Liposuction in South Korea?

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that “sucks” out fat from areas that are hard to lose through a healthy diet and exercise, while liposculpture is the shaping of the skin back to its desired shape. Both are done in conjunction with one another at the same time. Most areas can be treated. Traditionally the most popular areas to treat are the stomach/abdomen, chin and neck, love handles, arms, and inner and outer thighs. Becoming more popular are the knees, calves and ankles, all with very successful results.

While liposuction can permanently remove fat cells and alter your body shape, it should not be viewed as a quick fix for individuals who are significantly overweight. The procedure works best for those who have already lost some weight themselves and are close to their ideal weight but need help tackling stubborn areas of fat in problem areas.

What is the cost of Liposuction in South Korea?

When you're thinking about liposuction in South Korea, one of the first things you probably wonder about is the cost. Here's the thing: the price isn't the same for everyone. It hinges on a few details like how many parts of your body you’re getting treated, how complex the treatment is, and the professional fee of your doctor. Costs for anaesthesia and the use of the surgical facility are also added to the bill. It's vital to remember, too, that because liposuction is often carried out for aesthetic reasons, normal health insurance might not cover it.

MyMediTravel currently lists 22 facilities in South Korea offering Liposuction procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Liposuction can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on photos and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

Can Liposuction be used as a weight-loss method?

Unwanted fats are very hard to get rid of especially if you are not a fan of exercise or diet. Liposuction, also known as Lipoplasty, liposculpture suction, lipectomy or simply lipo, basically eliminates unwanted fats by suctioning it away. Despite the growing trend of non-invasive fat reduction treatments, liposuction is still the leading procedure to remove stubborn fat cells.

Liposuction permanently removes fat cells and enhances the shape of your body. A plastic or dermatologic surgeon usually performs this type of procedure on the patient’s belly, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, back or face to improve their shape. Furthermore, liposuction can be done together with other plastic surgeries such as facelifts, breast reductions, and tummy tucks.

This treatment procedure is particularly used for aesthetics, mainly to improve a person’s appearance. In most cases, maintaining and achieving such positive results will depend on your lifestyle.

What does a Liposuction Procedure Involve?

Before you have the treatment, a series of tests are required to ensure if you are fit for the surgery. You will also need to sign a consent form to confirm that you are fully aware of the risks, benefits and possible alternatives to the procedure.

You will likely be put under using general anesthesia, which can last for 1 to 4 hours. An epidural can also be used for procedures on the lower part of the body, although this is becoming increasingly unpopular now. Alternatively, you may be given local anesthesia if the procedure will be on small areas of your body. You may be asked to stand up during the procedure to ensure proper fat removal, but you will not feel any pain.

Tiny incisions will be made in the areas of interest through which a cannula can fit. This thin tube-like device is connected to a vacuum, capable of suctioning the fat from within your body. There are a few common techniques used, including Laser-Assisted or SmartLipo, UAL (Ultrasound-Assisted Lipo) or the most popular technique, Tumescent Lipo - this involves the pre-injection of a saline solution to help separate the fat from the blood, so less blood is removed. You'll discuss the best option with your surgeon before confirming what type of Liposuction is best for you.

How Long Should I Stay in South Korea for a Liposuction Procedure?

Generally, patients who have received general anesthesia will be required to spend the night in the hospital (in-patient). Patients, who have had local anesthesia, may be able to leave the hospital on the same day.

After the operation, you will have to wear support bandages (support corset, bandages or elasticated support) whilst healing. Expect some pain, swelling and bruising during the following days and weeks. Your surgeon will prescribe medication to help control your pain and antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection. Furthermore, your stitches may be removed during your follow-up appointment with your surgeon. You should expect to stay in South Korea for about a week post-op to allow for the initial recovery and check-up appointments, which will include the removal of stitches.

What's the Recovery Time for Liposuction Procedures?

Numbness in the specific area of your body where the fat was removed is to be expected for the first couple of weeks, usually, this will improve after 6 to 8 weeks. You may also need to wait a few days before going back to work. As for your normal activities, especially exercise, you may have to wait a few weeks before resuming.  

Overall, the recovery time may vary from patient to patient. In most cases, patients can return to light activities within 2 to 3 days and are also able to go back to work after two weeks. As for the results, you may see visible results after 3 to 4 weeks, however, it can take several months before you see the final outcome.

What sort of Aftercare is Required for Liposuction Procedures in South Korea?

Just like any other cosmetic surgery, following your surgeon’s aftercare instructions is vital in achieving and maintaining the best results. If the procedure was done above your waistline, you may be advised to sleep propped on pillows to have elevation on the specific area. This helps drain the fluids and prevent them from pooling. Furthermore, applying cold compress on a certain area where the procedure was performed is highly recommended, this will reduce inflammation and bruising especially during the first few days.

What's the Success Rate of Liposuction Procedures in South Korea?

Liposuction remains one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries with a success rate of 85%, offering patients the enhanced body shape they've been craving. However, just like any other surgeries, it also comes with possible risks. Complications vary and are dependent on the procedure is as well as your surgeon’s skills. Possible risks and complications include:

  • Severe bruising
  • Inflammation
  • Blood clot forms in veins, causing inflammation and complications (Thrombophlebitis)
  • Kidney or Heart problems - changes in the body's fluid levels during the procedure may cause kidney or heart problems.
  • Pulmonary embolism - when fat gets into your blood vessels and travels to your lungs, eventually, blocking your lungs.

Are there Alternatives to Liposuction Procedures in South Korea?

CoolSculpting – is a fat freezing liposuction alternative. This is more suited to people who are close to their target weight but still have unwanted pockets of fat. Coolsculpting is a fat-freezing procedure that crystalizes your fat cells until they break apart painlessly.

Ultrashape - a non-invasive procedure that doesn’t require the need for anesthesia. This treatment procedure will make use of a body sculpting device that vaporizes fat cells within the targeted area with waves of ultrasound energy. Fat cells are permanently flushed out of your body, giving you a more natural-looking fat loss.   

How does Liposuction differ from CoolSculpting and Vaser liposuction in terms of technique?

Liposuction vs Vaser Liposuction

Like traditional liposuction, the purpose of Vaser liposuction is to change the contours and shape of the body by removing persistent fat deposits. The word Vaser is actually an acronym for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. This specialized ultrasound technology breaks down the fatty tissues using ultrasonic frequency waves, which is why it's often referred to as Ultrasonic Liposuction or Ultrasound Liposuction.

Liposuction vs CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is the new non-invasive, freezing method used to also change the body contours and shape, however, this method does not require the use of a cannula so there is no damage to the overlying skin. Instead, it involves the controlled application of cooling localized fat deposits, which are then expelled from the body through the kidneys.

How safe is Liposuction in South Korea?

Liposuction, when performed in South Korea by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon, is generally considered safe. The procedure has evolved significantly since its introduction, with advancements in technology and techniques contributing to its safety profile. Most liposuction procedures are performed without major complications, and patient satisfaction rates are high. However, as with any surgery, there is always an inherent risk. 

It's crucial to have a detailed discussion with your surgeon regarding the safety of the procedure. The surgeon should be open about potential risks and complications, and explain how they would handle them should they arise. Factors such as your overall health, medical history and the area or the amount of fat being removed can influence the risks associated with liposuction.

What Should You Expect Before and After a Liposuction?

After your surgery, expect some swelling and discolouration in the areas where the fat was removed. To assist in healing and lessen swelling, you'll be given a snug garment to don. It is advisable to arrange for someone to take you home after the surgery and be with you for the initial day after the procedure. Though some changes will be noticeable soon after the surgery, the best results will take shape once the swelling has fully dissipated, which usually takes around 3-6 months. Regular check-ins with your surgeon are vital to ensure your recovery is progressing as expected. 

As the wise saying goes, "Your waistline is your lifeline." Liposuction does remove fat cells for good, but weight gain post-procedure can cause the leftover fat cells to grow, potentially in different areas of your body. Therefore, a balanced diet and regular exercise are crucial for maintaining your new silhouette.

How Can I Prepare for Liposuction in South Korea?

Prepping for a liposuction surgery in South Korea? You've got this! Here are some absolutely essential steps you should follow for a smooth and successful procedure:

  • Consultation: First things first. Have an in-depth consultation with your plastic surgeon. They'll assess your health status and discuss your goals. Taking this information into account, they'll provide some key instructions for you leading up to the surgery day.
  • Healthy Lifestyle: In preparation for the procedure, it's of utmost importance to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Get in regular exercise. Eat balanced meals. Hydrate frequently. If you smoke, now is the time to quit. And hold off on alcohol. Your body will be on the fast track to healing, thanks to these healthy habits.
  • Follow Instructions: Your surgeon will give you a set of preoperative instructions. Avoiding certain medications or supplements might be on the list. Stick to these guidelines religiously.
  • Support Person: And lastly, on surgery day, make sure to have a trusted friend or relative by your side. Once the procedure is completed, you'll need a safe ride back home.

Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers
