Confused but these kind of cases are uncommon right? Specially in korea considering how common these kind of surgeries are done there and the surgeons are skilled in their art. The i wonder how come it would have happened? Maybe some inexperienced surgeon did that? It would be good to knwo the clinic's name and doctor's name who did the surgery.

There's always a risk that you complications from anesthesia or an operation could arise, and I think there are more stories about it happening in Korea simply due to the amount of surgeries happening in Korea. If you look at the rate of these incidences proportionally to the amount of people getting surgery, it's probably the same as it is anywhere else, if not lower.

I can't even imagine how a person could die from complications with a nose surgery....unless it was a problem with anesthesia or antibiotics...in which case it inst the surgery that killed her... it was an incomplete medical history i should think. But it is hard to know without more detail.

The december one is grand plastic surgery. It happens on the first day when they moved to the new building. Someone went into comatose as grand ask the doctor to go in and out of the operating room during the surgery, so they keep giving the poor girl the anesthesia medicine, which cause her heart to stop because of too much of the med. The girl passed away in February 2014, a day after her family and her friends gathered in front of grand plastic surgery and held a demonstration. It's all out in the MBC television in Korea here.

With any sort of medical procedure there is obviously going to be some risk of complication, but the fact that Korean doctors are highly trained and knowledgable and the fact that this does not happen frequently are a few of the reasons why a few high profile chases shouldn't deter people from getting plastic surgery in Korea. Honestly, I think the korean cosmetic culture is totally healthy despite the few terrible incidences.

I think it's a cultural thing that we can't look at objectively simply because we were raised differently. According to my Korean friends, appearances are incredibly important over there not only in terms of basic social interactions like making friends and stuff, but even for job interviews/applications and general success outside of small friend groups. I think the first disparity between our culture and Korean culture is the fact that they initially have no reservations regarding cosmetic surgery, but our culture does. Everyone reacts to circumstance and social pressure. I'm sure that if our friends who openly oppose plastic surgery were raised in Korea, they would be wanting it too. We simply can't say something is "disturbing" because it doesn't comply with what we grew up with. And honestly, even though plastic surgery rates are higher than the global average over there, it's not as if everyone walking down the street looks like a model. Most people are just average and pay no mind to the plastic surgery hype.

Thank you for you knowledgeable post. This was very helpful and helped to put into perspective the Korean culture in relation to what I have grown up with.

Definitely. They should have looked at her medical history more.

Wow. I guess the risks of plastic surgery are much worse than just a botched nose job..

This article was really interesting, but I don't think that culture is specific to South Korea or even Asia generally. We have a very similar culture here in America, it's just that plastic surgery hasn't become the answer. Girls here believe from very young ages that they need to be more beautiful, conform to more rigorous cosmetic standards. There are certainly cultural issues in Korea - like the fact that their standard of beauty is so "Western" that you need double eyelids to be considered beautiful, which makes me personally uncomfortable because I think monolids can be very pretty too. But that aside, I think the real issue is that we're just putting too much pressure on young girls (and guys, sometimes) to be inhumanly perfect.

As far as this culture goes concerning getting surgery, I would never advocate that people would choose to go under the knife rather than just accept who they are. I think that no matter how much plastic surgery you get, you can still be unhappy with your appearance unless you realize that we're all human. But, I think that it's also incredibly liberating that we can change to look the way we want to nowadays, with minimal trouble (albeit not minimal expense :P).

Most people are just average and pay no mind to the plastic surgery hype.

I think the more important question would be whether it's healthy to have that kind of emphasis on appearance. I understand it's part of their culture but not all parts of a culture are necessarily good. The real measure of whether it's damaging, though, isn't our criticism of it, it's whether or not the people living in the culture are happy. If it's causing harm to the girls and boys who grow up in that world, then it's damaging. (I'm thinking here about stuff like eating disorders, anxiety disorders, depression, etc. related to appearances.)

There is also a difference between wanting plastic surgery because you think things will magically change - this is the stuff in the article about thinking that they will get a good husband if they could just be prettier - and getting plastic surgery because YOU want to look different, for yourself. It isn't unhealthy to want change for yourself, but it is pretty unhealthy to hate yourself for what you were born with.
