Korea has been long known as a mecca for plastic surgeries and South Korea has established itself as one of the forerunners in the plastic surgery space. Its wealth of skilled surgeons has made medical tourists travel here from across the world to partake in cosmetic surgeries. The presence of state-of-the-art technology has made it easy for plastic surgeons to carry out surgeries with great precision and dexterity for the best results. Affordability is yet another factor that has made South Korea a lucrative pick for medical tourists. A face-lift would typically cost about $10,000 in the US, while the same goes at $2,000 - $3,000 in South Korea. Many medical tourists from China, Russia, Japan, Thailand, the US and the UK are traveling to South Korea for its first-grade cosmetic surgeries that are offered at affordable rates.
