Plastic surgery trends in Korea

Unlike what many people believe that plastic surgery is mainly for people in the United States America and other parts of Europe, there are many other countries in which the statistics are equally high. South Korea is one such country. There are many people opting for plastic surgery in the Asiatic country to enhance their appearance by targeting different body features. It is said that about 20% of women aged between 20 and 49 years have gone for plastic surgery procedures in the country. Still, Brazil and the US lead in plastic surgery statistics.


Aside from the Koreans themselves, Seoul has become a major plastic surgery hotspot where many people from other countries flock to get their bodies enhanced. People from neighbouring countries like China have plastic surgeries done in the country because of the resources available there. Seoul has even earned the tag “the plastic surgery capital” because of the acceptance of these medical procedures. While the US has more people going under the knife than any other country, Korea with a population slightly less than 50 million has a larger percentage of its people getting their appearances enhanced; sometimes unsuccessfully.

What is most worthy of note is the fact that many Koreans wish to have plastic surgeries so that they attain a Westernized appearance. Just like people of Asian descent living in America, those in Korea more often than not wish to have work done on their eyes, noses and jaws to enable look a bit more Caucasian. The celebrity Jang Geun Suk of Asiatic origin had rhinoplasty done on him. While he continually denies it, there is evidence of his nose being more refined that it is remembered to have been. In Korea, there are a dozen such surgeries performed each day. Whereas people in the USA still perceive plastic surgery as somewhat of a taboo and deny these procedures being carried out on them, in Korea the situation is different.

Here, people who have had their faces altered under the surgeon’s knife will readily admit to it. Even more unique is the fact that most of the time, it is parents who take their young adults to have their appearances changed!

A typical Korean will usually have a broad nose and small eyes. The rhinoplasty they seek makes the nose slimmer and sharper at the tip which gives the face a more “Western” look. The eyes are also a critical area of attention by the Korean keen on enhancing his features. They will usually pursue an extra fold of flesh on the eyelid as most Caucasians have. The blepharoplasty procedures they undertake opens up their eyes instantly giving them a radiant look if performed successfully.

Sometimes, they even go for jaw jobs. Some Koreans have jawlines which can be described as jutting out. They may opt for plastic surgery to refine this part of their bodies as well.

Just like in any part of the world, Korean plastic surgeries can sometimes go wrong. Even when one uses a lot of money to finance the surgery (like Kim Tae-hee must have done), there are chances that the results may be less than satisfactory. So, whether you go to the plastic surgery to have your procedure done or opt for a home transformation, there are chances of failure which you must acknowledge.

Steps to Have a Safe Plastic Surgery

Anyone considering a cosmetic procedure needs to have all the facts at the fingertips. This way, chances of a surgery misfiring are minimized. At the same time, preparations for a successive procedure are put in place and nothing left to chance. Since plastic surgery is no child’s game, it is not a procedure that one undertakes at the backstreet, unless a patient has no regard for their life or health. It is important to have sufficient information before making the ultimate decision to sign for a surgery or part with money.

Here are the Steps to Have a Safe Plastic Surgery:

Safe Plastic Surgery

a) Make an own decision – Every individual is the real expert on their appearance and are better placed to raise any concerns pertaining their looks. It is the prerogative of each individual to ultimately decide in case there is need to alter a given body part or improve it. No one has the authority to decide that a part of an individual’s anatomy needs a procedure unless it is medically significant.

b) Information – Having all the information at the fingertips is the next step towards a safe surgery. All the limitations and risks involved should be laid bare. Some key things to remember are; no surgeon or surgical procedure is 100% perfect or risk free, no implants last forever, plastic surgery is a major operation and pain has to be expected, no results are guaranteed as there is probability of looking different to how one imagined.

c) Know the surgeon well – Although most surgeons have undergone training, talents differ and some have better chances of performing safer surgeries than others. At the same time, there are quacks that obtained certificates through dubious means and may purport to be experienced when they aren’t. It is important to verify the surgeon using the following methods; seeking information regarding surgeons from associations of surgeons’ organizations, getting connected through hospitals since most have strong associations with qualified surgeons, checking out the medical register to find the ones with licenses for performing surgical procedures.

d) The timing has to be right – It is necessary to avoid surgery after life disturbing events like divorce, bereavement, a major illness, having a baby, losing a job, moving house etc unless the circumstances dictate. These kinds of scenarios can prolong the healing period.

e) Location – There is no need for traveling long distances to get a procedure if it can be acquired nearby. In case there are complications, it is difficult to get to the surgeon. Also, after surgery, lots of movement may interfere with healing.

f) Be financially prepared – Finances determine whether one can take the leap or not. Even though the procedure is costly, there are surgeons who do not charge exorbitantly and are competent. Of course many people bear the belief that expensive is always the best, though this is not actually true.

g) Recovery period – For people who need to be at the public glare more often, there is need to opt for surgeries that take shorter recovery time like was the case of Beyonce plastic surgery. Plastic surgery is a life changing procedure that must be thought out carefully.

Features of the Exercise Bike

Obesity is a major problem affecting a big percentage of the first world. America alone has more than one third of its population obese. With technological advances, most workers now work and move less, leading to serious weight gain. At the same time, few people have regard for diet as well as exercise. This has led to most people having explosive weight that needs serious remedy. For a start, they have to reconsider their diet. Secondly, they have to institute an exercise formula that will get them back on form. Research shows that as much as exercise helps in burning excess calories, checking on one’s diet is also an important factor.

Exercise Bike

All exercise equipments have specific user weight. Most home equipments cannot accommodate weights more than 300lbs especially those that fall in the lower price category. This makes it difficult for personal users to acquire this item. However, gyms being for commercial purposes will normally have equipment for all weight categories and all purposes. Of course even in the gym most bikes are designed for average bodied individuals. But because the heavy bodied people need to exercise too, there are certain bikes that offer special advantage to them. They are designed with a limited range of motion and mobility to make exercise challenging for overweight individuals.

Exercise bikes for over 300lbs are mostly commercial grade bikes found in gyms that can accommodate weight of up to 450 pounds. Most fitness centers have two types namely; upright and recumbent. The upright bike looks almost like the traditional one that has a seat over the pedals with the torso leaning forward to be almost at the handlebars. The recumbent bike on the other hand, is reclined with a larger seat that looks like a bucket to make seating more comfortable. The recumbent is easier to get into, making life easier for very large trainees. They also have backrest to help support the upper part of the body as one pedals. The seats are adjustable; both forward and backward to support the torso.

Most commercial treadmills have handlebars widely spaced to support one during exercise. In case there is discomfort during training sessions due to weighty machines or very small barbells, dumbbells could simply be an alternative. All the same, other forms of exercise like aerobics are ideal if one wishes to reduce more kilos before finally settling for the bike. Since too much weight makes one feel unbearably hot during training, swimming becomes necessary.

There are people who are not comfortable in a gym either because they love privacy, or are ill at ease in a tightly packed gym. This may necessitate the need for home equipment. Finding a bike at an affordable price is not easy. If at all there are some selling fairly, there is need to check out all the body parts carefully. Adjustable parts are the first features to look at. Handlebars, seat, magnetic resistance and heavier flywheel should not be ignored. Before making a purchase, a test run could help determine lots of things for a buyer.
