Hey guys,

Hope you're all doing well. Basically, I'm heading out to South Korea next week for surgery (eyelid, cheekbone contouring and rhinoplasty) but I haven't booked any consultations etc yet and still have a few questions:

1) Once I arrive..are there extensive waiting lists to get seen by a doctor? Or is it likely that they will be able to see me straight away?

2) What is the recovery time? I.e. Once the operation is finished, how long before it is appropriate/safe for me to fly home (back to UK).

3) My flight to Korea is booked for 31 July, and the flight back is 28 August - giving me precisely 4 weeks in Korea. Is this enough time for everything?

Many thanks, I'm very nervous about this!

I only know from my research but rhinoplasty takes about 9-11 days to heal. Also wait time for  a consultation is hard to say because if you're going to a good clinic, I would think it to be pretty busy so  you might have to wait at least 30 minutes to even an hour! Who knows! I don't have personal experience but I read a lot of stories of some people being able to have a consultation right away and some girls that have to forget about a clinic all together because the wait was too long!

Hey!!

Thanks for your response.

For the 'waiting period' I was wondering about I was actually wanting to know how long I would have to wait for a doctor to actually carry out the procedure i.e. the doctor is fully booked for the next 3 weeks so can only book you in after this period for the rhinoplasty etc?

Thanks again!!
