Face Lifting in My Late Thirties



Now that I'm in my late thirties, my cheeks are drooping severely so I decided to receive lifting surgery. My sister received nose surgery at Wonjin and it turned out very nicely so I didn't research other hospitals and came straight to this hospital. After the consultation, I decided to receive V lifting.


I got the surgery on Friday and when I went back to work on Monday, my coworkers thought I just received Botox or something small like that haha My cheeks are now much better and my skin has improved as well so my friends are envious of me.




I heard that if you don't take care of your skin in your late thirties, you will look a lot older. With lifting surgery, my jaw looks slim and my skin tone is much better. I give V lifting surgery two thumbs up.

Korean Plastic Surgery that the Chinese Must Be Aware Of 2





Many people bring in pictures of celebrities to show what kind of features they want. Some of the more popular pictures are of Angela Baby, Song Hye Kyo, and Jun Jiyeon. For the people who bring such pictures, it is both easy and difficult to operate on them. This is because they know specifically what they want but they might wish for a feature that is not harmonious or proportional to their entire face, and it is not easy to persuade them otherwise. 






For example, Jun Jiyeon's nose is straight, and during the consultation, it is important to think about the entire face of the patient with Jun Jiyeon's type of nose. It is also important to honestly state what kind of features you want in detail for optimal surgery results. 


Cosmetic surgery is not a surgery to treat an illness, so except for side effects, the success of the surgery depends on subjective judgment. In other words, if the patient is satisfied, then the surgery is a success, if they are unsatisfied, then it is a failure. Also, the patient may have a change of heart before and after the surgery, and their appearance after the surgery may look different to what they had in mind. 


In conclusion, for a surgery to be successful, select a clinic with experienced medical surgeons and also have a clear image of what you want for the surgery for better communication. Especially for foreign patients, you must clearly tell your doctor what you wish for and check the they understood your request.

Korean Plastic Surgery that the Chinese Must Be Aware Of



[In Min Daily News] The Good, the Bad, the Strange


It's a fact that Korea is famous for its cosmetic surgery all over the world, and Gangnam is known as the mecca of cosmetic surgery in Korea. According to one research, there were 1,245 start up doctors in 2013, and more than 50% are situated in the Gangnam area.

Gangnam, Apgujeong, and Sinsa are known for plastic surgery, and there are various billboards and advertisements related to plastic surgery. These ads boast their before and after pictures, confidently stating that they are the best clinic, which fill the entire street.

Let's find out how to select the right hospital for you with Dr. Wonjin Park, head of Wonjin Beauty Medical Group.



#1. Check how old the establishment is:
There is a high possibility for clinics that are recently opened to not have enough experience or have an unstable surgical environment. Also, the head doctor might have changed the name of the clinic many times so it is important that you check if that clinic has had any medical malpractice.


#2. Check if the doctors are board certified:
In Korea, it is possible to distinguish if the hospital is specialized or not. In Korea, only clinics that are labeled as "_____ Plastic Surgery Euiwon" is a specialized clinic.
*Euiwon means institutions that treat out patients


#3. Check if communication is easy:
The success and failure of a clinic may depend on subjective views. Especially for foreign patients, if their requests are not exactly met, then they might not be satisfied even if the surgery comes out well. So it is important that both parties clearly understand each other and that the consultant has much experience dealing with foreign patients and understand their culture.

In conclusion, it is best to select a clinic that has much experience and can care for the patient as much as possible.

Butt Lift Discharge Precautions


Discharge Precautions for Butt Lifting


There are 3 main surgical options for butt lifting: butt implants, fat grafting, and thread lifting. The method can be customized for each patient but requires a full understanding of the surgery to find the appropriate method. The surgery is suitable for those who lack volume throughout the entire body or the buttocks, have flabby skin due to aging or after dieting, or just discontent with the current shape of the hips. 



So what should be done after you are done with your surgery?

-Carbonated drinks and coffee is prohibited until stitch removal. Smoking and alcohol is prohibited for one month.

FACE WASHING AND SHOWER

-Light showering is possible the day after stitch removal, saunas and public bath houses are prohibited for one month.

SLEEPING
-For 2~3 weeks, you should sleep on your side.
-While sitting down, make the sure implant is not compressed, use a cushion and be careful when seated.

PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS
-Medication should be taken 3 times a day, 30 minutes after meals.
-Painkillers will be prescribed only when pain is present and should be taken in 8~10 hour intervals.

AFTER DISCHARGE MANAGEMENT
-A special symptom of this surgery is discomfort while walking and sitting for 2~3 weeks.
-Leave the surgery area as it is, and do not randomly remove the tape from the area.
-Intense activities (golf, swimming, tennis, aerobics) should not be done for 1 month after surgery.

Nose Surgery




Real Story: Nose Surgery


My nose bridge was pretty high so it kind of looked like an eagle's beak and also a bit round and blunt on the tip. When I took pictures, I would always feel that my nose came out really ugly and it was a big problem for me (it also looked huge so that explains the picture below)

I never used to take pictures close to my face, but after I took a look at my wedding pictures for my wedding that is scheduled to be in February next year, I couldn't delay it any longer. So I just decided to get a nose job. 




I have always considered getting surgery but I was afraid and only envious of people who actually went ahead with their surgeries. There seemed to be a lot of celebrities that got surgeries at Wonjin, but the feedback were not very satisfying for me so I couldn't make a firm decision. But I thought "if it's right for me, I'll just do it," so I decided to get a consultation. 

The consultant was great and everybody at the hospital was kind to me. I was concerned after the operation, but after they took off the tape, I saw my reflection of my swollen nose and thought, "my nose came out nicely, whew." 




This is my 2nd week and my nose is healing quite nicely so I am very satisfied. My friends and family tell me it looks good so I feel good! The best part about the surgery is that I am confident when I take pictures now haha I really wish the best for  Wonjin Beauty Medical Group and the doctors there.

[Event] Live Demo for Restylane Media



Wonjin Beauty Medical Group scheduled a media event with Restylane* on July 10th, 2014. The event held by Restylane included media from China, Taiwan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Indonesia, etc. with a total of 40 people that visited the hospital. 

The event started out with the introduction of the hospital, then the introduction of Restylane, a familiarization tour, a live demonstration, and a Q&A session. Dr. Bang Chi Young, plastic surgeon, explained in detail about Restylane (filler) and performed the live demonstration of the filler. 

The visitors enjoyed the live demonstration, which was the highlight of the event. The demo included fillers being infected into the nose, smile lines, and a skin booster from Restylane vital. Fillers are usually for making the sunken and flat areas of the face more voluminous. The main component of Restylane vital, hyaluronic acid, has the largest particles, which are injected onto the face, causing a moisturizing and shining effect for the skin. 




The event came to a close with Dr. Bang's interview. Overall, the event went smoothly and it was a good opportunity for Wonjin Beauty Medical Group to spread Korean plastic surgery and also about Restylane. 


* Restylane is a filler made from hyaluronic acid from Sweden and approved by the FDA in 1996 for its safety and effect.

Cheekbone Reduction and Nose Surgery





Real Story: After Facial Contouring and Nose Surgery 


I feel anxious just thinking about my former face while I am writing this post haha. I am very skinny but because of my protruding cheekbones, my face would look fat and boated from every angle in pictures. Even with a little fat on my face, I would look as if I had an enormous face, so I hated when there was wind. 



I also wanted to try tying my hair in a bun, and I couldn't wait any longer so I decided to get surgery. My nose seemed a bit wide too, making me look manly I guess... And one day I met a friend who received surgery at Wonjin, so I decided I would go to the hospital to check it out. Rather than just advertisements, when I actually saw my friend who did it, went straight to the hospital for a consultation and made a reservation for the surgery the same week. 




Like everybody else, I was scared and anxious... and 2 weeks after... I shouldn't gotten the operation sooner! My boyfriend who was really against plastic surgery, was being really cool about it and he even told me to get something done on my forehead haha. I'm thinking of doing my forehead sometime this year hehe I think many Asian women would like to have a voluptuous looking face line from the side.




I can't believe I finally went ahead with the surgery. Even without make-up, people tell me that I look pretty. The best thing I have probably ever did in my life for 25 years is this surgery. If somebody asks me if I'd rather buy a car or get surgery, I won't even have to think about the answer. 

I'd like to thank the consultant who helped me before and after the surgery, and sorry if I annoyed you with all my questions hehe I'm just hoping that my swelling will go down soon!

The story of Zou Ming Jia who had a protruding mouth 
She was always interested in fashion and style so she was always depressed about her appearance. 
With her lumpy facial contour and protruding mouth, her boyfriend kept telling her that she looked scary and old. 

Can she get over her fears and make her wish come true? 


The doctors agreed that she not only had a square jaw, but that her entire face was large in size and her mouth was protruding. 

She went through protruding mouth surgery to stick her mouth back inwards, and to make her face slimmer, she went through square jaw surgery and cheekbone reduction surgery. 

Lastly, she had fat grafting on her forehead to make her face less dull and flat. And her eyes that look a bit unnatural was made more natural with double eyelid revision surgery. 



Procedures: 
Forehead fat grafting
Eyes revision surgery
Cheekbone reduction
Square jaw
Protruding mouth 
Front chin

How did she transform? 
- Her face is now slim and smooth 
- She has natural proportions

Long Chin and Asymmetric Face



Real Story: Long Chin and Asymmetric Face 


I received two jaw surgery because I had a long face and my face was not even. And I went to many hospitals and received a lot of consultations. But I decided to come to Wonjin in the end because they seemed the most trustworthy. Two jaw surgery is like a present for people that look like I do. It's on a different level compared to pretty people that receive eyes and nose surgery. 






I'm really thankful and happy that a surgery called "two jaw" can change a person's life like this. It was expected but, my face is so much smaller now! I look like a cute girl now and I just cannot stop taking selfies haha I look so pretty and my parents are happy for me too.

It's been about 5 months since I had surgery and now I have braces on.





In the past, I never put on make up or got dressed up for anything. But now I love to go shopping and can't keep myself from buying new cosmetics. It takes a really long to get ready and now I feel like I'm a real woman. Hopefully I'll look more beautiful after I take my braces off hehe 

Thank you doctors for giving me a safe surgery and more than expected results :)
I am forever in your debt.

Make Your Calves Thinner



Calf Reduction 


Question: 

I used to work out on a daily basis, but now that I've stopped, I started gaining weight. I lost some of the weight by dieting, but my calves are way too muscular and bulky. What kind of calf reduction treatments are there? 

Answer: 

It is best to find out what kind of category you are in after accurate examination. A customized surgical method will be recommended for you. 




Types of calf muscles 

1. Inner muscle: When wearing heels, the muscle sticks out

2. Outer muscle: Usually caused from genetics and excessive work out - legs look curved

3. Inner & Outer soleus muscle: Legs may look curved and thick 

4. Multiple muscles: The inner & outer muscles are protruding and looks large overall

5. Muscle & Fat: Much muscle and fat which makes the legs look thick


For a non-incision method, the nerves on the calves are selectively blocked by using a high frequency energy wave. Compared to prior methods where the nerves were melted using various drugs which caused side effects, this method selectively treats the muscles which decreases the level of tissue damage.

Time: 30 mins
Anesthesia: Local
Recovery: 1-2 weeks




* Bleeding, infection, etc may vary from patient to patient after the surgery

Have Courage and Change Your Life


Real Diary: Breast Augmentation

Before




Starting from high school, I was always behind my friends when it came to my body and puberty. I was short, thin, and stressed about my breasts that would not grow...
Some time during high school, I got up the courage to go into a store and buy a padded bra. I wanted to look pretty so I stuffed socks and tissue into the bra like implants haha

Now that I look back, it's kind of like a fun memory, but then, it was really devastating for me... So I started saving up from 3 years ago and decided to get surgery. It wasn't easy to go for it, but I did.

After


And one day, I met my old friend that I haven't seen in a very long time and she said she got breast surgery at Wonjin! She was flat chested like I was before, but she became smoking hot with an hour glass figure. I was so envious because she looked so pretty! So when I saw her, my fear was instantly gone.



I immediately decided to receive consultation and when I did, I stopped having doubts and I started getting courage because the doctor, consultant, and the nurses were all so kind! They made me feel safe and believe in their medical staff. The surgery itself wasn't so bad since I recovered quicker than expected, and most of all, I am very satisfied with the operation because my breasts look wonderful.

Vaginoplasty at Wonjin

Why get Vaginoplasty at Wonjin? 



There are various types of vaginoplasty for patients with different needs. Today, we'll be reviewing two of the major surgeries that involve the pleasure areas of a woman. 


What is G-spot Surgery: 

The G-spot is located 3-4 cm inside a woman's vagina near the entrance and the is the main area for sexual pleasure. The G-spot surgery method includes injecting fat or natural collagen to increase sexual stimulation, and thus enhance the sexual feelings of pleasure. 



What is Clitoris Surgery: 

Similar in shape to a man's penis, the clitoris is covered in a hood. The size may be small but it plays a big part in a woman's sexual experience. For those in which there is excessive foreskin, this can interfere with stimulation and decrease the sexual experience. Also, secretions can get stuck and cause odor or irritation to occur. The surgical method involves incising or pulling the clitoral hood to provide a functional, healthy, and sanitary clitoris. 







Depending on the individual, general complications that can occur after surgery and treatment include bleeding, infection, and illness.
