Okay, so I don't know where to put this topic so I just chose "Plastic Surgery Procedure"

 

Anyway, I've been asking about the prices of each procedure I want to each clinic that I know is good. By the end of their message, there are things like "This is just as approximate price blah blah blah." Reading those things over and over again, I became curious about their estimated prices, do you guys think that they include the post-operative service there? How about the tax thingy? Or is do you think that the "approximate" word means that it is higher than the prices they take in when paying so that the customers have an extra money and it won't be their (the clinic) loss in the end or is it lower than the average price so that the customers will be tempted to have a consultation to their clinic?

 

I don't know if you guys can understand me XD if you there is a thing I need to clarify, just reply below ;)

Hmmm, that is interesting indeed. I'm actually curious about this now, but if I were to guess, I think it's what their estimation of the cost of procedures needed to get your desired look is based off of your pictures. However, when a consult is done in person, it might be a little different (more or less) because they are able to see your face in the flesh. A lot of people look different (better or worse) in their pictures than in person, so they can't really give a rigid answer. As for the post-operative service/tax, I'm not quite sure, but I would think that's a separate charge.....not too sure about that though, haha

I AGREEEE. It's so hard to save when everything else is also getting increasingly more expensive. :| But I'm sure you're already pretty and just trying to get prettier. ;D

I'm not quite sure...Price determination is a balance between the demand of foreigners and supply of clinics/doctors available. (Economics class is coming in handy, haha)

Prices might increase due to the ever-increasing demand for Korean plastic surgery. Since more foreigners are willing to travel for medical tourism, clinics can assume that people will still pay for their services even when the prices are a little higher because they'd prefer a doctor with more experience. BUT, at the same time, prices can decrease due to the fierce competition between clinics! The discounts/sales during peak seasons are designed to attract people to certain clinics.

Ohh~ you're good ;) so do they give discounts on foreigners? And do you know what season do they usually give discounts? Is it after or before new year? Or summer? Ugghh... why can't they just post discounts online! -_-

Hahah, thank you!! Unfortunately, I've read on multiple places that foreigners tend to be charged more, probably because the clinicians assume that they would pay anyways since they went through all of the trouble to find time/money to go to Korea in the first place. :((

According to an article I read that showcased different promotions, they had/have New Years (new year-new you), spring (people want to fall in love), summer (good time to get students), Christmas (gifting), discounts for students, combination packages, and big group ones. :P I feel like fall might have one too for back to school! (The parentheses indicate my personal reasoning for why they probably have discounts around those times. :D)

I agree, although the only problem with that is that airfare is generally more expensive during those times too. :|

Really? o_o Did they mention what clinic did they go to? :\ That's a bit disappointing though.

I guess I'll choose New Years. :3

Is that so? In our country, airfares had been very cheap lately especially during those times so I guess that wont be a problem to me soon :)

Hey everyone, sorry for intruding on your post but I didn't know where else to put this, so...

@seoultouchup : Could you please tell me what it is that influences the price of rhinoplasty? Does the price depend on what you're having done? For instance, I've noticed that the "barbie nose" can involve implants, so would that cost more than something simpler?

Personally, I just want a slight change - a slimmer, slightly smaller nose with a bit more of an arch. Do you have any idea how much that might cost?

Thanks so much! :)

Hi! I'm in the middle of planning my trip right now, and I've asked the same question. So for nose jobs, the price really depends on what changes you desire. They have bridge augmentation, alarplasty, and tiplasty, which I got quoted for between 4-7k. I'm not sure if the cost is different for just 1 or 2 of those 3 types of changes, but I was told that they are considered separate surgeries in themselves.

BUT, at the same time, prices can decrease due to the fierce competition between clinics! The discounts/sales during peak seasons are designed to attract people to certain clinics. 

dnice is right about supply and demand - in general, because there are so many clinics in Seoul, the prices are driven down. They do charge foreigners more, partly because they can and partly because sometimes foreigners cost the clinic more money (i.e. if the clinic has an in-house translator).

To answer the original question, however, the price of your procedure depends on the difficulty. For instance, a "nose job" could be a very little alteration to, say, the "wings" of cartilage, or it could be a total alteration of the bone structure. That will determine whether your cost is on the high or low end of the range. THAT BEING SAID, bargaining down is very common, especially if you are getting multiple procedures done. Don't always take their quoted price at face value. Because there is so much competition, if they think you will go somewhere else, they might lower the price. So if anything, the "approximate" price should be higher than what you actually pay.

Most likely, the best way to get a clearer estimate would be to send your photos and desired results to the Seoul TouchUp staff. They have a lot of experience with this kind of thing and are monumentally helpful.

What they basically tell you is what they have up on the site. Honestly, I think only the doctors can really consult you on that.

Nose job should be 5-5.5 million and you can even bargain lower prices in clinics
