 Hello everyone! I have been a long time lurker (never posted anything before). Please excuse me if I make some newbie mistakes. I am a 23 year old female living in the West Coast. I've always been chubby as long as I can remember and frankly, I'm fed up with it! I have stubborn fat deposits that I cannot lose through diet and exercise no matter what. On top of that, I am a 3D animation student so I am required to sit in front of a computer all day. :(

 

I am currently in the process of saving up for liposuction and I plan to visit Korea sometime between December 2015 to June 2016. 365mc quoted me almost $12,000 for underarms, abdomen, and inner thighs. Is that a fair, competitive price? I am waiting to hear back from JW, JK, Line, and Banobagi. (I apologize in advance if this is not the right forum to post this. I can move this post if need be).

I was quoted:

  • 5,060,000 KRW for abdomen including flanks and love handles
  • 4,400,000 KRW for upper back of arms and front armpit
  • 3,960,000 KRW for inner thighs (front and back)
  • 280,000 KRW for compression garment for arms
  • 340,000 KRW for compression garment for abdomen

The consultant also said I don't need a compression garment for my thighs if I am not doing the entire leg. In total, I am looking at roughly $12,000 for just the surgeries. I'm not locked in on having all three areas done at once; I am just trying to see which areas are most affordable and get those out of the way first.

 

Anyway, nice to meet everyone and I hope we can all realize our dreams of being beautiful soon! :D

Hi Jenny, nice to meet you! One thing to note is that negotiating the price is possible, especially if you are having multiple surgeries simultaneously. I would probably still plan on saving up the amount without any discounts, but if you can get a better price when you're sitting down at the clinic all the better :)

The following users say thank you to Ellie for this useful post:

Hi Jenny!:) I've also been a member since 2013 but I didn't post anything until a year or two lol I was also thinking about lipo for my abdomen but my priority is rhino. I've done everything to get rid of my belly fat (crew, gym, pt training) but it's ALWAYS stayed the same *sigh* Anyways like you said hopefully we can go to korea soonSmile

True. Also, if you pay won in cash, there would be a discount .

@Mitchie Is there an actual discount for paying in won, or is it just that you don't have to pay the VAT fee?
