    Nurse/caretaker

    It would be easier to do a homestay or stay at an airbnb ran by some caring hosts or Korean parents who have empty nest syndrome since there kids moved away. A word of advice for doing airbnb or homestay is to not mention a clinic's name before your surgery, and if a host is insistent about taking you to the clinic themselves for consultation to be a that's not a good sign. Sometimes they can be doing something know as secret referrals and trying to get a cut of your fees. There are really nice places out there though. I will try to dig up some worth exploring, but I am not endorsing them.

    My List

    Thanks for posting this. I will come back with thoughts and suggestions.
  3. Thanks for posting, we'll look into organizing this into a better table as well. Some good finds.
  4. Yes, for the most part they will maintain patient privacy. However, their data handling is not as strict as say the US or advanced European nations.
  5. Some people wonder if their lips will change after genioplasty, and the short answer is yes, this will be a tradeoff. A genioplasty, especially one that moves the chin forward will make lips appear thinner, especially the lower lip by curling it slightly inward. This is due to the pull of the soft tissue by the advanced bone. Also the mentalis muscle that controls the lower lip is cut and needs to be reattached after the surgery. How precisely and where it's re-attached will effect the lower lips appearance. Further Reading Evaluation of Lip changes and Smile Aesthetics following Genioplasty: A Retrospective Study
  6. Welcome! there are a lot of experienced folks here, so feel free to post any topics and questions in the forums, and people can help or give feedback.
  7. Hi Nikki, that's a bummer, but we'll help you get a new short list. What are some of your goals for your nose? Is it first time nose surgery?
  8. A hospital needs to ask for your information to create a medical record, so you should fill it out truthfully since they will also create a certificate of surgery, which is a legal document that proves you had surgery and may protect you if some issues arise in the future. Also, some clinics provide tax refund documents, and knowing your official name and passport information are needed for that.
  9. You can for plastic surgeons: Here is a website to look up Korean plastic surgeons in an online database. But not easy for oral and maxillofacial dental surgeons The doctors you listed are oral and maxillofacial dental surgeons and there is no English database to check board membership status. You said not to post website info, but here it is to cross compare. I doubt that this information is false because clinic competition is so fierce in Korea, they often audit and self police each other's information, so if there was a false education credential it would be called out.

  10. A lot of us have been there, but sometimes it's good to take a breather from thinking. Also please note that reviews are very subjective especially if you're reading ones on sites like purse forum there is a lot of disinformation on there and that's why we made beauty hacker to make a better research community. But here are some cautions about researching: Researching Plastic Surgery (PS) too much can: Make you a perfectionist and develop unrealistic expectations Consume your thoughts and distract you from other things in life Create a paradox of choice and analysis paralysis by knowing too many options I recommend to create some clear goals, understand the risks, hope for an improvement, but have some flexibility that it won't be exactly like how you imagined. Try to see if you can do it in your home country first, or use that opportunity to learn more about treatments before going to Korea.
  11. @honeyjello nice beauty hacking, very good insights into the clinics in this post and the consultation experience.
