SEOUL, South Korea — In Gangnam, Seoul’s commercial and luxury shopping district, designer boutiques and flagship shops line the streets alongside plastic surgery clinics with polished signs and shimmering facades.
With hospital names like “Top Class,” “Fresh,” “Grand,” and “Cinderella," plastic surgery is as fashionable as it is commonplace in South Korea. With one for the world’s highest rates of plastic surgery per capita, South Korea is also a major medical tourism destination for Chinese visitors.
