Cosmetic Surgery To Get The K-Pop Look

South Korea has become a global trendsetter in beauty and plastic surgery. The country has some of the highest rates of cosmetic procedures performed worldwide. What makes South Koreans love their plastic surgeries so much?

South Korea has is known as a nation obsessed with beauty. In fact, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), South Korean women spend more time and money on beauty care than anywhere else in the world.

South Koreans are also among the top consumers of cosmetic surgery globally. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, nearly half of all cosmetic procedures performed around the globe happen in South Korea.

 According to the WHO, people undergoing plastic surgery in South Korea have increased by 300% since 2000. The most popular procedures are rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, breast augmentation, facial fillers, and nose reshaping. The popularity of these procedures is likely due to South Korean culture. In particular, the importance placed on physical appearance is a significant part of South Korean culture. South Korean women expect to be thin and beautiful from a young age, and it is considered an embarrassment for them to be overweight. 

According to the Korean Association for Plastic Surgeons, about 15% of Korean men have had cosmetic surgery. Also, about 44% of Korean men are interested in having plastic surgery.

The Korean Association for Plastic Surgeons estimated that the number of Korean men who have had cosmetic surgery stood at around 15% of the population in South Korea. It is also well known that about 44% of Korean male college students have either already undergone plastic surgery or have plans to undergo a procedure in the future.

The procedure to recreate a crease in the upper eyelid in Asian patients is performed very commonly in Asia. In France, however, it is a little-known surgical procedure that only certain cosmetic surgeons perform. It requires a great amount of practice, rigorous training and extreme surgical precision.

It was described for the first time in 1896 and several different names exist for the operation:

  • Double eyelid surgery
  • Asian eyelid surgery
  • Asian blepharoplasty
  • Debridement of the eyelids or eyes
