See the breast

Breast surgery is a form of surgery performed on the breast. Breast surgery not only improves the appearance of the breasts, but also completes the overall volume of the body. As Korean plastic surgery is very advanced, people are not as obsessed about size anymore. A full range of breast augmentation, breast lifting or even nipple surgery can be chosen to be performed to achieve natural and balanced breasts.


Latest Trend of Breast Surgery in Korea

Breast surgery, especially breast augmentation, is a common and popular plastic surgery procedure in the U.S. Before, the goal for breast surgery was to make the breasts appear rounder and bigger. However, as Asian women started to display interest from facial surgery to breast surgery, doctors in Korea actively tried to create natural looking breasts for Asian bodies. Nowadays, breast augmentation is not all about using implants to augment the size. Perhaps a more important goal is to recreate the natural proportion and shape of the breast. Due to the latest trends, implant types have been upgraded and enhanced to achieve the most natural results. One of the most popular implant shapes is called ‘teardrop implant’ which creates natural shape without artificial feel. It is known that the teardrop implant resembles the most ideal breast proportion as most of the fullness is in the lower part of the breast, while the upper cleavage is somewhat concave in shape. However, the most important thing to consider when you undergo breast surgery is to have an appropriate consultation with the surgeon and choose the implant that best fits to the body and surgical procedure.
