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...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Bye, Bye Crows Feet!

Overall I'm very pleased with my experience start to finish with VIP Plastic Surgery. When it came to the actual procedure, we didn't use numbing cream so it hurt quite significantly. That said, it was over pretty quickly and I was able to take myself home without any issues. I'm very pleased with the results.

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

My nose was after several surgery destroyed. Much too short. Breething was limited. For everybody it was visible that I had a nose job. I made consultations in Germany (my home country) but the operations which was done there by famous surgeons made the result worse and not better. I searched in the internet after a doctor from korea because I thought better find someone which makes the nose...

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.
