China Tourists Tops the Charts
It’s a bit of a shame when more than half of the country’s medical tourists are from China and yet there have been rising cases of the dissatisfied and dismayed. In 2013, more than 25,400 Chinese travelled to Seoul from China looking out to beautify themselves through Asia’s beauty haven with its cutting edge technology and preferred expertise. Some say it’s the appeal of Korean entertainment and music, with celebrities touting the next look, who could resist? Yet, among the district’s hundreds of clinics, not every single one of them is a safe bet. As much as advertisements around subways or buses have led you to believe, it’s a dangerous world in Gangnam street. Dangerous in the sense of there being too many options to choose from, leaving one to wonder who is really trustworthy? Advertisements boast beautiful jaws from jawline surgery and large, even eyes can be achieved in Seoul. Jaw surgery is no child’s play, with major complications extending all the way to permanent nerve damage. For those who had put less thought into it, it’s easy for them to be given the short end of the stick there.
