Planning Your Plastic Surgery in Korea
This article assumes that you have already made a decision on which procedure you would live to have done and that you have also chosen, or almost chosen, the doctor and the clinic where you wish to go. Advice on these two things will be provided in another article, but for now let’s focus on how to actually plan the trip, what you need to know before you leave for Korea, and what you need to know once you have landed in the country. Plastic surgery in Korea for those coming from abroad is in some ways similar to a holiday trip, but because of the additional elements of it actually being for medicinal reasons, there are many more things that you need to prepare for before hand.
PREPARE ALL THE PAPERWORK AND VISA IF NEEDED
You will need to prepare all the paperwork that you need for the clinic. This includes any previous medical conditions or surgeries, which you can get from your own doctor. Try to collect as much information as possible on your medical history as this will greatly help your doctor in Korea to understand your body better and to choose the right approach for your procedure. Pay special attention to any allergies that you may have and make sure that you have them all written down and prepared, because some people may actually be allergic to certain medicine.
Once you have collected all of your medical paperwork, you will need to prepare your passport and your visa. Of course, if you already have a Korean passport or if you come from a country that doesn’t have tourist visas for Korea then you won’t have to worry about this, but do still make sure that you have everything prepared well in advance before your journey. There is no need to place yourself in a situation where you will become frustrated, because you need to be as relaxed and stress-free as possible for your procedure.
BOOK YOUR ACCOMODATION WELL IN ADVANCE
There are many great websites where you can look for a place to stay in Korea, and since you will be coming for surgery, your clinic will very likely be located in the Gangnam area.
