Hi, I was hoping to come to Korea to get breast implants to balance out my bottom heavy figure, and I was hoping that Korea didn't have the same restrictions that America does regarding your age and the type of implants you're getting? In America you have to be 22 to get silicone and if you're not 22 you have to get saline, but saline is much firmer and less realistic and I'd really rather not get them. (Also, I'm only 16 right now so these are questions applicable to two years from now when I'm 18). So can you get silicone breast implants when you're 18 in Korea? Also, will they start using those new non-leaking "gummi bear" silicone implants that were recently approved by the American FDA? Thank you to anyone who can answer my questions!

Hi! I was actually curious myself about the age limit for different implants in Korea v. America too. I'm pretty sure that the reason that there is an age requirement in the first place is due to the fact that growing breast tissue has a high probability of displacing the implant, so it would make sense for Korean Plastic surgeons to follow the same reasoning (although I'm not sure that it's mandated or just recommended). Also by "gummi bear" silicone, do you mean the teardrop ones? If so, VIP Plastic Surgery has teardrop breast augmentation that you may be interested in researching further! :)

there's a fat tissue displacement surgery that takes fat from other places and puts them in your breasts :) it's probably the most natural looking/feeling boob job that you can get, in case you're interested

There are actually several places near where I live that specialises in that procedure! It's like a two-for-one for individuals looking to slim down in certain places and get larger breasts, which I think is awesome! Plus there wouldn't be any risk for capsular contractures, as with implants. I think most of the places also combines the procedure with a "suction" type pump[?] that is supposed to stimulate natural breast tissue growth, too, so the procedure seems very comprehensive and natural although the expectations have be to be more realistic for those considering it of course haha

I'm sure there are other places that perform the same procedure (not sure about in Korea though), but yes, I was referring to BevHills, haha.

In Beverly Hills specifically, I know it ranges from 8k-10k, so the pricing is pretty much the same as a the alternative route with implants. However, the results are far less dramatic, so if you're looking for a huge difference, then this method is actually not ideal since you most likely won't be satisfied with the results. :( Another interesting side note though, many of the plastic surgeons who do this treatment also have included in the cost a natural breast tissue stimulator for anywhere between a half cup to two cups (rarer) increase following the procedure. Also, your BMI has to be greater than 21 in order to be a candidate for the procedure. Hope this helps! :)
