Since the mid-2000s, the Korean Wave has spread across Asia where even the youth of neighbouring countries in Asia are now flocking to get their faces and bodies done.
With plastic surgery iphone apps now freely available on the World Wide Web, this takes cosmetic and plastic surgery to a whole new level. As technology advances further, would you be more inclined to consider altering your body – assuming that you could really, accurately visualize your ideal results through a swab and click of a button? Say, if it was possible – that’d be great! Who doesn't want a fast-forward button in life, except in this case specifically for plastic surgery?
