Seoul: the epicentre of beauty
Widely hailed as the plastic surgery capital of the world, hundreds of thousands of people travel to Seoul for their aesthetic and cosmetic procedures. This has become possible due to the Korean government's commitment to medical tourism.
In comparison with most of the world, Seoul is exceptionally advanced in medical services, and its infrastructure. VIP Plastic Surgery Center's motto is "Quality over Quantity", which is evidenced in its customer-centric offerings and commitment to patient safety.

Before you arrive in Korea
The VIP Team is committed to guiding each international patient every step of the way. Your journey starts with a personal coordinator who will be your contact person throughout your whole trip. She will provide a customised recommendation from the doctor, quote for the procedure(s), arrange accommodation, book your consultation appointment and arrange for airport transfer. Need a medical visa? No worries, she will help with securing that too.
Arriving in Korea
Arriving in Korea, you will be met by a private driver who will whisk you away to VIP facilities in the heart of Gangnam where you will be greeted warmly by the staff. After you have had time to relax, it is time to have your consultation with your doctor.
Pre-op, surgery & recovery
During the consultation, the doctor will find out about your concerns and goals, and you will work together to come up with a customised surgical plan. You will be thoroughly informed about the details of the surgery and what to expect. To ensure that you are in the best condition for your particular operation, VIP arranges several examinations before your surgery such as a blood test, a urine test, a chest X-ray and an EKG. You will be advised on what to expect on surgery day.
