Korea Attracts Big 3 Medical Tourists

The three nations with the most Korea-bound medical tourists are China, the U.S., and Japan, according to industry data. Chinese medical tourists made up the largest share, with some 32,000 seeking treatment in Korea in 2012.

Chin Augmentation

Chin augmentation or mentoplasty is performed to provide balance to the facial profile or to correct a weak chin. Chin augmentation is usually performed with bio-compatible implants. The implant is placed over the lower jaw bone to augment the chin. Depending on the augmented region, it is possible to create a wider or stronger chin, or even lengthen the face.

The implant is affixed in place by fashioning a loose fitting pocket or by fixing it to bone or soft tissue. Some implants are placed by making a small incision under the chin. If the material is rigid, then a small incision is made inside the mouth. A chin augmentation is usually recommended with a nose job.
