In South Korea, Plastic Surgery Comes Out of the Closet



Dr. Park Sang-hoon, head of a top-ranked clinic in southern Seoul, consulted with Chang Hae-jin after her double-jaw surgery, a procedure that involves cutting and rearranging the upper and lower jaws.
SEOUL — With a blue pen, Dr. Seo Young-tae drew arches on Chang Hyang-sook’s eyelids, marking where to cut and stitch to create a new fold to make her eyes look larger and rounder. It is an operation so common here that most women on Seoul streets seem to have a double fold, though only one of every five Koreans is born with one.




“Promise you’ll do a great job on my eyes,” Ms. Chang said to Dr. Seo. “Never mind the pain. I can take it.”


For Ms. Chang, 25, a makeup artist, the 2.3 million won, or about $2,000, eye job is just the finishing touch in a program several months long to remake her face. In the previous two months, Ms. Chang had not only had her teeth rearranged, but her jaw bones cut and repositioned, for 22 million won.
“You must endure pain to be beautiful,” she said, adding that an eye job is so routine these days “it’s not even considered surgery.”


Cosmetic surgery has long been widespread in South Korea. But until recently, it was something to keep quiet about. No longer.
And as society has become more open about the practice, surgeries have become increasingly extreme.


Double-jaw surgery — which was originally developed to repair facial deformities, and involves cutting and rearranging the upper and lower jaws — has become a favorite procedure for South Korean women who are no longer satisfied with mere nose jobs or with paring down cheekbones to achieve a smoother facial line.


Celebrities have helped to drive the trend, as they scramble to keep ahead of digital technology that mercilessly exposes not only their physical imperfections, but any attempts to remedy them, said Rando Kim, a professor of consumer science at Seoul National University.


“Wide-screen and high-definition TV put pressure on them to look good in close-ups,” Mr. Kim said. “And with the Internet, where people like to post ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures, they can no longer hide it. So they go public, often talking proudly about it on TV.”
That, in turn, has encouraged greater openness among ordinary South Koreans.


“It used to be all hush-hush when mothers brought their daughters in for a face-lift before taking them to match-makers,” said Dr. Park Sang-hoon, head of ID Hospital. “Now young women go plastic surgery shopping around here.”
Dr. Park’s is a top-ranked clinic in Seoul’s “beauty belt,” a swarm of hundreds of plastic surgery clinics clustered around a string of subway stations in the upscale districts of southern Seoul.


“Where did you get it?” asks one of the ads for clinics that cover the walls at the entrances of the Apgujeong subway station, the center of the beauty belt. “What about your nose? And your chin?”


Parents may promise their daughter an eye job if she passes her college entrance exam. In Apgujeong, it is not hard to find young women shopping in department stores immediately after their surgeries, wearing masks or sunglasses.


“Korean women want a revolution with their face,” said Dr. Park, a leading practitioner of double-jaw surgery.
“What we do in double-jaw surgery is to reassemble the face,” said Dr. Park, whose clinic has performed 3,000 such procedures in the past six years. “Normal people become, sort of, super-normal, and pretty people prettier.”


In traditional Korea, tampering with the body bestowed by one’s parents was a violation of Confucian precepts that also discouraged cremation and, later, organ and blood donations.
But in recent decades, cosmetic surgery has become a weapon in Koreans’ efforts to impress others, “like buying an expensive handbag,” said Whang Sang-min, a psychologist at Yonsei University.


Cosmetic surgery is not covered by national health insurance, making it difficult to determine the exact size of the industry. A survey last year by the Seoul city government found that 31.5 percent of residents 15 or older were willing to undergo surgery to improve their looks. In 2007 the percentage was 21.5.


In a 2009 survey by the market research firm Trend Monitor, one of every five women in Seoul between the ages of 19 and 49 said they had undergone plastic surgery.
The number of doctors trained as plastic surgeons has almost doubled in the past decade to 1,500. But 4,000 clinics provide cosmetic surgery, most of them in Seoul’s beauty belt, because the law allows other doctors to switch to this lucrative field. As competition heats up, some clinics host “Cinderella events,” where patients are given free surgery and appear in their ads.


Doctors say their main patients are young women entering the marriage and job markets. “As it gets harder to find jobs, they’ve come to believe they must look good to survive,” said Choi Set-byol, a sociologist at Ewha Woman’s University.


When the government imposed a 10 percent tax on five popular types of cosmetic surgery in July, civic groups as well as surgeons protested that this discriminated against women and the poor.
One consequence of the boom is that young women look increasingly alike, doctors say. “They come in with photos of starlets whose face they want to copy,” Dr. Park said.


“Koreans agree on what constitutes a pretty face,” he said. “The consensus, now, is a smaller, more sharply defined youthful face — a more or less Westernized look. That makes 90 percent of Koreans potential patients because they’re not born with that kind of face.”
Not everyone is happy with this development.


The film director Im Kwon-taek says it has become all but impossible to find an actress who still has a traditional Korean face. “They all have that surgery to have their eyelids scrolled up,” he said. “What kind of eye is that?”
He said that one day he was watching a provincial beauty competition on television and almost jumped up when he saw a young woman with a relatively round face with natural eyes.
He cast her in a movie set in old Korea.


In August, the Education Ministry issued a booklet warning high school students of “plastic surgery syndrome,” citing Michael Jackson and a local woman whose addiction to plastic surgery left her with a grotesquely swollen face. Last November, a woman hanged herself after her double-jaw surgery went wrong. “Every waking minute is hell,” she wrote in her diary of the pain.


Recently, a local television station secretly filmed a hospital official trying to sell a double-jaw procedure to a woman. “You want to get married?” he asked. “Then you have to do this, you have to take the risk.”
Chang Hae-jin, 21, an art student who was self-conscious about her slightly protruding teeth and chin decided to take that risk with Dr. Park. For weeks after the operation, she could not speak with her heavily bandaged swollen face. But it was worth it, she said.


“It opened a new world for me,” she said. “In the train today, a man sitting next to me talked to me. He said I looked younger than I am.
“My life has become much brighter.”

[korea plastic surgery] Areas of Fat Injection (fat graft)





 


Areas of Fat Injection




Forehead
It makes the forehead round and full if the forehead is partially dent or low. It naturally connects forehead and nose line with nice volume and makes the face look sophisticated.

Frontal cheek
If under the eye or frontal cheek is dent, the eyes look hollow and sick. Fat injection makes the face look bright and cheerful.



Jaw lines
If the jaw lines are uneven and jaw bone is exposed or asymmetry, fat injection can make the jaw line even and balanced.


Cheeks
When the cheeks do not have fat, the cheekbones look more prominent. The patient may look older and give a very strong impression. Fine fat cells can greatly enhance the cheek volume and make the patient look a lot younger.



Around the nose
Due to the sinking of nasolabial folds around the nose, the mouth looks like it is protruding even more and the regions around the nose seem very hollow. In this case, fat transplant can give the necessary volume and brighten the face.

    [no-tie two-jaw surgery korea] Isn’t it dangerous if there’s no-tie between jaws?

    What is the ‘No-tie’ Two-jaw Surgery?


    It is a procedure that does not require intermaxillary fixation(IMF) after surgery. Usually the conventional two-jaw surgery required tying the upper and lower teeth together for 2-6 weeks, which is also known as the ‘intermaxillary fixation’. However, the ‘no-tie’ two-jaw surgery eliminates intermaxillary fixation and applies a ‘torque-free’ rigid internal fixation method to let the bones heal and agglutinate quickly.








    Advantages of ‘No-tie’ Two-jaw Surgery


    More comfort

    • Easy breathing: Intermaxillary fixation causes swelling inside of the nose and difficulty in breathing due to blocking the mouth. The absence of intermaxillary fixation eliminates this pain and allows the patient to breathe comfortably.

    • Enjoy your meals: The patient must eat soft food for a certain period after surgery. In the past, the patient had difficulty chewing food with their teeth tied but the new surgical procedure allows the patient to enjoy their meals without any discomfort in chewing with the mouth open.

    • Easy speaking: Intermaxillary fixation caused difficulty in speaking, but the new procedure allows the patient to speak freely without any pain or discomfort.

    Q1. Isn’t it dangerous if there’s no-tie between jaws? 
         
    A. It’s not dangerous at all even without the tie between jaws after the surgery. The no-tie and general two-jaw surgeries basically have the same surgery process so that they are both safe. Instead no-tie two-jaw surgery makes you breath comfortably that it reduces the risk of respiratory failure and much safer. Moreover, we look at jaw joint and alignment of teeth after the surgery to finally determine whether or not to tie between jaws. Therefore, the patients have more choices. ID Hospital considers safety of customers and operates only the safest surgery. 

     

    Q2. Is the surgery result the same even without the tie between jaws?
         
    A. We plan and manage customers not to have recurrence or deformation after the surgery. Therefore, the result after surgery is the same. We recommend to take no-tie two-jaw only if there will be the same surgery result. Thus, functional result or aesthetic result of face is the same in terms of jaw joint or teeth. We added ID’s only super-precision core technology on top of existing surgery method, so you will be much more satisfied with the result.



     
    Q3. Is no-tie two-jaw surgery operated only at ID Hospital? 
         
    A. As we know of, there’s no other hospital that applies our core technology. Of course it is possible to operate two-jaw surgery without the tie procedure. However, the problem is that if they have safe skills and measures to operate without the tie procedure. Do they have successful clinical experiences? These are important matters.



     
    Q4. I’m worried if my teeth are not aligned after the surgery.
         
    A. We use Torque-free Rigid Internal Fastenation which was first introduced by ID Hospital and super-precision jaw joint registration system to predict teeth movement accurately and fasten them. Hence, there’s no misalignment after the surgery. You don’t have to worry because ID Hospital has abundant clinical experiences. 

     

    Q5. Is no-tie two-jaw surgery available for all cases? 
         
    A. A surgery should be considered with customer’s recovery process and safety. Thus, not everyone can take this surgery. About 80-90% customers can take this surgery based on our clinical experiences so far. We can determine if you can take no-tie two-jaw surgery through diagnosis, so please visit our hospital and take tests.
