Love my Nearly Perfect Nose - Seoul, South Korea

I always had a flat nose bridge so got a nose job in Korea but the first PS shaved down my bridge prior to inserting silicone on it. He said it was to hold the silicone insert better. It didn't look unnatural but it didn't help make it look better. Second surgery Dr. Kim tried to... READ MORE

Love Botox! - San Francisco, CA

I started getting botox treatments maybe 5 years ago, I haven't really kept with maintenance of it every year. I'd say I get it done conservatively every 8-10 months but realistically every 5-6 months is how long it lasts. After 4 months forehead movements are more malleable. I also don't... READ MORE

Yeah, he's now on the speaking lecturing circuit, retired from practicing. The most private clinics you won't find that well, they don't market heavily since they don't need to and their clientele are resident Korean celebs. You kind... READ COMMENT

I had a revision nose job so it was almost $4k, probably closer to $3500 back 6 years ago. They probably raised prices a but since then. I stayed with family, no charge. It really only takes 7-10 days for your stitches to come out... READ COMMENT

My cousins research the best doctors for the most natural aesthetic look so you don't look "done". Those doctors never mass market either so they're not likely to be known by foreigners, which is a shame. Mass marketung clinics... READ COMMENT

I recently found that he's retired now and on the lecturing circuit. $6 would be maybe for a revision surgery, not initial surgery, tell them your Korean friends saif they never paid that much. READ COMMENT
