Can’t take 2-3 weeks off of work to get the nose job you’ve always wanted? Want to change your look somehow but don’t know what? Guess what. Not all plastic surgeries require weeks of recovery time. There are procedures you can literally get done over the weekend just in time for Monday work without having to worry THAT much about your recovery – well that’s because the procedure is super simple and the healing process is much quicker.
“We have many people visit from Singapore and Hong Kong especially for certain procedures. These are working people – mostly women who catch a plane right after work on Friday to Seoul and get the surgery done on Saturday. After the final checkup on Sunday they catch a plane right back to their country in time for work on Monday.”
Regen Plastic Surgery surgeon, Dr. Seok Jun Lee
