5 out of 5 stars Asian Rhinoplasty

VIP Plastic Surgery Center Korea Review - Asian Nose Job

People have been telling me how my nose was alright, but I was never satisfied with my nose shape and had numerous filler injections before. I realized the limitations of filler and decided to go through rhinoplasty and went to some consultations in Seoul. When I had consultation with Dr. Lee, I realized that I have done something wrong for the past years, he told me that fillers should not be...

Bye, Bye Crows Feet!

I was very nervous to get Botox - I mean, I was getting needles in my face! Dr. Myung Ju Lee at VIP Plastic Surgery Clinic in Seoul put my fears to rest saying that I had great skin, a beautiful face, and that we could get rid of my dreaded crows feet and not so fine lines.

5 out of 5 stars African American Rhinoplasty

African American (Ethnic) Rhinoplasty- VIP International Plastic Surgery Center (Seoul, Korea) - South Korea, KR

Dr. Lee was brilliant , informative and very patient. He knew immediately what my concerns were and was willing to spend a decent amount of time with me answering my questions. I didn't feel rushed and was very confident that my nose would be good (much better than it was) however my expectations were exceeded! I highly recommend this doctor and VIP International Plastic Surgery Center. Thanks VIP!

Revision Double Eyelid Surgery at VIP Plastic Surgery Center (Korea)

Hi Everyone, It's been about 5 years since I had my double eyelid surgery at VIP. I went to VIP for a revision surgery because from my previous surgery (which was a non-incision method at a different hospital) my eyelid got loosen up and I needed a revision job. The doctor told me that my previous surgery did not correct ptosis symptom and suggested me to have incision double eyelid with...

Very positive experience - South Korea, KR

My experience at VIP was surprisingly easy and stress free. Going in for my first lip filler appointment I was a bit nervous and had many questions. The doctor was happy to look at photos of what I was going for and what I did not want to look like, and reassured me that natural was the aesthetic they strived for. The staff and even fellow patients were all super positive to be around and...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Humped nose surgery

I originally had a hump with deviated nasal septum and a droopy nose tip. I really didn’t like my nose because it gave a masculine look, but I did not seriously consider getting a plastic surgery until I saw my friend who has done the nose job. I was actually afraid of the surgery itself because of the pain. I knew VIP from my friend who had the surgery here as well, so I did the online c...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Light Botox = Just The Perfect Touch!

I was initially very wary of getting any sort of Botox, but after growing far too critical of my forehead wrinkles, I headed to VIP, where I has already had wonderful service with IPL lasers. I didn't want to go in for a lot of Botox, I'm a very expressive person and didn't want any of my features inhibited. Dr. Lee totally understood this and actually took the time to tell me where the best...

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Secondary Nose Job

Dr. Lee was explaining me in detail how and what he can do to enhance my nose and what I can expect. He cares very much every day after the surgery I saw the doctor.

Personal Statement

The key principle of plastic surgery is to express creativeness in plastic surgery in the most natural way and in the same manner as an artist would express a creativity in his art. I believe plastic surgery can bring out each individual's hidden natural beauty as well as to enhance self-confidence.
