Full Face lift, double eyelid surgery with lifting and lower blepharoplasty in ID Hospital, real review

Before surgery

I've always had deeper nasolabial folds than other women of my age, but when I turned 60 I was told that I look tired and sleepy because of my droopy eye shape.  I've decided to get a surgery before it was too late, because I wanted to get compliments again.

I went to ID Hospital to get Full Face Lift to improve sagging skin and lifting double eyelid surgery and lower blepharoplasty for my sleepy eyes.


3 weeks 

After 3 weeks I still had some swelling, but most of the fine lines and deep wrinkles on my face were gone.

3 months

Just as my doctor said, the swelling went down step by step because I followed all post op instructions. After 3 months I started wearing more make up and taking more pictures.

5 months

People around me say that my skin is glowing and shining. I think I haven't got so much attention even when I was younger than now! Thanks to ID Hospital I'm much happier now. I think I even smile and laugh more, and it's only because I feel more beautiful!

ZEIT Magazine: ID Hospital experience

A famous magazine “Die Zeit” is considered to be one of the biggest and most reputable German newspaper and it’s known for its long history and extensive articles. One of its recent articles called “Glossier, Grander, Gangnam” is devoted to the topic of plastic surgery in Korea mentioning ID Hospital as one of the biggest plastic surgery clinics. The journalist of Zeit Magazine shared her ID Hospital experience.
“Floor 15 of ID Hospital is decorated in marble and pale pink, the soft strains of lounge music occasionally interrupted by the drone of the coffeemaker. Like all large clinics in Seoul, ID Hospital claims to be the number one when it comes to art of perfecting its patients’ external appearances. Outside the clinic’s broad windows, meanwhile, buildings are being torn down and rebuilt. Whatever isn’t yet beautiful here will be made beautiful.” – stated in Zeit’s article.

The article then describes the story of one of ID Hospital patients Ann Rithmyxay who underwent anti aging surgeries.  Ann received a lower blepharoplasty surgery last September from ID’s upper and lower blepharoplasty specialist  dr. Hwang In Seok and mini face lift by lifting specialist dr. Seo Young  Tae. She also shared her thoughts about ID Hospital experience:
“I wanted the best clinic,” says a woman waiting for her appointment in a cream-hued armchair. Her name is Ann Rithmyxay and she has traveled all the way from the U.S. for her upcoming operation, a present to herself for her 53rd birthday. Ten years ago, Rithmyxay says, she began suffering from depression and gained weight from the medication. Her face grew puffy, she says, and then started to sag as she aged.

She says she scrolled through Instagram looking at before-and-after photos from Korea and thought: “What if?” She would read testimonials from patients, closed the app and opened it again. Finally, after two years, she says, “I found the courage.” Rithmyxay booked a facelift, a flight and a hotel for her two-and-a-half-week trip, her first time in Seoul.
It doesn’t take long before an English-speaking marketing team comes to greet her in the lounge, women in rose colored outfits and heels. Hello, Annyeonghaseyo! They hand Rithmyxay a form about allergies and previous illnesses. Next to her, a patient who is also waiting for her appointment, asks: “What are you getting? You are so beautiful already!”
A consultant leads Rithmyxay into a small room with a flat-screen TV on which a Korean talent show is currently playing — slender women sitting with their legs crossed. On a wooden table, there are a hand mirror, magazines and a cranial bone. Now the time has come to talk about scars and medication, about how long the swelling will last and the aftereffects of general anesthesia. Following the procedure, the consultant says, she should breathe through her mouth so that the anesthetic gas can escape. Then, the consultant thanks Rithmyxay for her time and leaves. Two additional consultants then come in to talk about money. The entire procedure is to cost $11,000. Rithmyxay signs.”

Tomoko's life changing experience of double jaw orthognathic surgery, V line surgery, cheekbone reduction, acculift and fat graft in ID Hospital


The idea of getting plastic surgery wasn’t sudden to me. I have always wanted to change my face contour because of the wide facial bone. ID Hospital is the most well-known facial bone hospital in the whole Asia, that’s why I chose Korea over Japan for my plastic surgery journey.

I had No Tie Double Jaw surgery, V line surgery, Cheekbone reduction, Acculift and Fat graft all by dr. Lee Seokjae.


2 weeks 

I had a feeling of a sore throat until 2 weeks post op. It’s interesting that at the night time the face is getting slimmer and looks normal, and in the morning it’s chubby and big again. A good thing is the temporary sense loss is getting back to normal again, and the left side of my face has a lot of sense back!

1 month

One month after the surgery my face looked a little asymmetrical because the swelling went down differently, and I was worried about it. However the sensation became normal, and I was also able to open my mouth widely for the first time since the surgery and eat more various food after mouth opening exercises.
I am looking forward to see the result after the swelling subsides.

3 months

I'm glad that the swelling has come down! I can come back to my daily routine normally! Recently the more people around me say I look prettier and cuter, the more confident I feel! Until now I didn't like to see my pictures, but now I really enjoy taking them!

5 months

As the swelling has gone the shape of my face in the last month is very different! It’s fun to see the daily changes.

9 months

I'm happy because now I have a perfect face shape. It's really amazing how the surgery can change not only the facial bone shape, but also the quality of life. I only regret that I haven’t done it earlier.

Russian lady had anti aging procedures in ID Hospital (Full Facelift, Browlift, Brepharoplasty)

Before surgery 

As I'm in my 60s now I'm concerned about all aging signs that appeared on my face such as lines, wrinkles, saggy skin and loss of facial volume. I was amazed by the dramatic anti aging results of Korean surgeons, and that was one of the reasons why I chose Korea for my surgeries.



I had consultation with dr. Choi Jae Ho. I was really worried at first, but in the end I really enjoyed consultation with him - very friendly, smiling and patient.

He recommended Full face lift, Brow lift and lower blepharoplasty for me, so I just went with his recommendation and was ready to become more beautiful.


After surgery

1 week

The thing I worried the most was pain. But surprisingly, I haven't felt any pain even after 1 day. I didn't feel any inconvenience even when I had to stay in ward, because nurses were always there to assist. The most uncomfortable part was 2-3 day after surgery, when I experienced the most bruising and swelling.

Apart from that I had no problems. I got eye stitches removed after 1 week, and lifting stitches removed 2 weeks after. The incision line was visible, but the doctor told me to use scar ointment for this area to help it heal faster.

2 weeks

I had amazing post operation care treatments that included lasers, facial massage, mask and more. It feels like a separate SPA salon with relaxing music and vip service. After 2 weeks I was ready to go home.

1 month

Almost no bruising or swelling left, especially when I started to use make up.

3 months 

The result looks perfect. The saggy skin was carefully tightened with no "over" effect, everything healed very nice.

5 months

I had an amazing photo shoot and I couldn't be happier with my plastic surgery choice. ID Hospital staff is very attentive and meticulous and helped me throughout my journey. I feel like I'm 20 years younger!

Anesthesia explained by ID Hospital specialists

Anesthetia Q&A with dr. Lee Hye Jin 
Anesthesia medication like propofol has been a social issue for several years due to the negative effects of misusing it, and people used to think of it as of a drug rather than sleeping anesthetics. ‘Propofol addiction’ and ‘propofol death’ extreme cases hided the positive side of medical use.
But is it really dangerous? ID Hospital anesthesiologist Dr. Hyejin Lee and ID Hospital head dr. Park Sang Hoon are explaining details about sleeping anesthetics.
Sleeping Anesthetics Used for  anesthesia (Sedation): Midazolam, Ketamine and Propofol
Sleeping anesthesia is in fact a sedative therapy. It means that the patient is somewhat aware of  physical stimulation or speech. Anesthesiologists divide sleep anesthetics into three categories. Lee Hyejin, anesthesiologist at ID Hospital, said, “Midazolam, ketamine, and propofol are all types of sleep anesthetics. Anesthesiologist needs to consider each of the pros and cons  depending on the patient’s condition”.
 Types of Sleep Anesthetics
▶ Midazolam
A drug belonging to the benzodiazepine family, which has a calming effect by reinforcing the action of inhibitory neurotransmitters in the brain. Midazolam induces sleepiness, decreases anxiety, and causes a loss of ability to create new memories. So even though you feel pain during the surgery, you won’t remember it. Cardiovascular inhibitory effect is small, but midazolam can reduce blood pressure, so it takes a long time to recover.”
▶ Ketamine
Ketamine is a general anesthetic that has an analgesic effect injected into vein or muscle. It induces a trance-like state and increases calming effect if combined with midazolam or propofol. It’s easier to maintain the airway due to lesser respiratory depression  has the advantage of analgesic action. Disadvantages include increased cerebral blood flow and cerebral pressure, elevated heart rate and blood pressure, hallucinations, delusions, and nightmares.

▶ Propofol
Propofol is a general anesthetic drug that is administered directly to veins and has the fastest effect. It is used for anesthesia during surgery or examination, or to calm a patient using a ventilator. Usually it is s an anesthetic for sleeping endoscopy, simple procedures, and plastic surgery. Propofol anesthesia induction and anesthesia recovery are faster than other anesthetics. If the patient is healthy the anesthetic is metabolized in the liver and then leaving the body with urine. Unlike other anesthetic it doesn’t cause nausea or vomiting.
Is it safe to use for medical purposes? Does it cause addiction or death?
Lee Hye-jin said, “Proportol is a problem that can be summarized as addiction (abuse) and death due to respiratory depression. Propofol causes addiction in some patients because it gives comfort and refreshment after a good night’s sleep without nausea, headache and discomfort after anesthesia, leading to misuse. High doses can lead to apnea due to respiratory depression and death, ”she added. However, it was clearly emphasized that the problem was indiscriminately misused, not for medical purposes under the supervision of anesthesiologists.
Propofol is a psychotropic drug, so it must be used only for the medical purpose under the supervision of the anesthesiologist. In addition, it is important to adjust the dose for each patient in consideration of age, weight and medical history. If you have a history of sleep apnea, medications or food allergies, you should tell your doctor in advance.
If you are allergic to soybeans, it is important to properly consider the usage of propofol.
Propofol is a drug that contains soybean oil and egg lecithin, so if you are allergic to soybeans, peanuts, or soybean oil, you should be careful. Dr. Hye-jin Lee said, “It is possible to use propofol for general egg allergy patients, but it is safe to avoid it if there is a history of anaphylaxis (a severe allergic reaction that can lead to death from laryngeal edema, dyspnea, or low blood pressure shock). If you have a propofol allergy, mild symptoms may improve with urticaria, but severe death can result from dyspnea and hypotension shock. ”
Check this before choosing a clinic for surgery!
– A clinic has in-house anesthesiologist
– If not,  who is observing patient’s condition during anesthesia
– A clinic has a medical staff and equipment appropriate for the first aid in case of an emergency
– Which anesthetic does clinic use
What about the dose?
Dose adjustment considering patient’s condition is very important. ID Hospital provides propofol sensitivity pre-examination to ensure safety of anesthetics medical use and to reduce patient’s risk and anxiety.
Dr. Sang-Hoon Park, MD, said, “It is very easy to control propofol level during anesthesia and then recover from it. But as it is classified as a drug product, it must be used only under a specialist’s supervision. It is important to know the propofol sensitivity of the patient in advance through medical examination.

3 months after double jaw, V line and double eyelid surgery in ID Hospital

Before surgery

I had a lot of insecurities about my face, and especially jaw. It's really hard to overcome it when you can't even laugh without worrying about how your face looks like.  I decided to get a plastic surgery and fix my jaw misalignment to gain more confidence.

My surgeons were Hyon Won Seok and Choi Jae Ho. They recommended me to combine double jaw surgery and V line surgery for my jaw, and also get a double eyelid surgery for a better dramatic change.

After surgery 

3 days after surgery

I experience the extreme swelling during first 3 days. I took medicine and went back to the hotel, and to be honest I worried a lot about my swollen face. The consultant said that it's ok, and recommended me some walking and drinking water to help deswelling.

1 week after surgery

Even though I was a little anxious about the way I looked, I got used to the swollen face. The recovery was uncomfortable, but I had a major surgery, so I just had to overcome it.

Around this time, the result of  double eyelid surgery became very beautiful.

1 month after surgery

I felt some inconvenience in the mornings when I woke up, but other than that, the pain seemed to be bearable. The swelling has gradually reduced.

2 months after surgery

At this time I could apply make up and I could see first permanent result from the surgery. My face looked much slimmer, and despite some swelling I started enjoying going out.

Before the surgery I used to apply heavy make up to hide my face. At 2 months point I've noticed that natural make up was enough for me to feel confident. I loved that feeling.

3 months after surgery

I'm looking forward to seeing my face gradually getting slimmer. The face shape changes from day to day, and it is very exciting.  I feel much happier compared to my life before the surgery. I can't say that recovery is easy, but in my case it changed my life positively 100%. Thank you, ID Hospital!
