South Korean plastic surgeons are rapidly gaining fame as ones of the best in the world. What is more, their international patients need to prove their identity upon returning to their home countries as plastic surgeries have made them almost unrecognizable.
People from China, Japan and other Asian countries travel to South Korea to undergo various plastic surgery procedures as, apparently, they do not trust doctors in their own countries. However, chin, nose or lip jobs not only make them look more beautiful, they make them look like totally different people. Even when you compare the ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos, it is quite hard to tell whether that is the same person or not. But plastic surgery clinics have come up with a solution. Now they issue each patient a certificate that states the patient’s name and passport number, the procedure they have undergone as well as the hospital name and the duration of stay. Thus, it is quite easier for the patients to prove their identity as well as go through airport security. Still, plastic surgery patients are advised to have their passports renewed promptly.
