How much does a Tummy Tuck cost in South Korea?

Welcome to WhatClinic! The site that helps you find the right clinic for you when looking for a Tummy Tuck in South Korea.

South Korea is a world leading destination for Tummy tucks  and there are thousands of clinics spread out across its nine provinces all competing for overseas patients, South Korea is certainly one of the world’s medical tourism hotspots for tummy tucks, and this has been driven by a combination of affordability, choice and quality.  With competitive prices in comparison to the rest of the world and professional, well trained staff operating out of some of the world’s top clinics, South Korea has plenty of options for tummy tuck treatment.

While most clinics will have English speaking staff it is important to remember that this may not be the case for every clinic. Highlighting any issues with language during the consultation phase is important to avoid any unwanted issues arising. Talk to as many of the clinic staff as you can, and take some time to research qualifications and accreditations before you book. Remember, standards can be different abroad so you’ll need to ask more questions than you might at home to get the right information.

Tummy tuck recovery time can vary from patient to patient, so the best person to get some key information from is the surgeon performing your operation. How much pain will you feel? How long will it be before you can travel? And what are the risks? All surgery carries some risk, no matter how qualified or experienced the surgeon, so these questions are all valuable ones. Your decision shouldn’t be made on price alone, though Tummy Tucks in this part of the world are considerably cheaper than elsewhere. You’ll also have to have a visa. Make sure you factor that into your travel plans.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy Tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed to reduce abdominal fat. The result is a slimmer and firmer abdomen.

How is a Tummy Tuck procedure done?

To perform a tummy tuck procedure, first general anaesthesia is administered. For patients with large tummies, the surgeon will cut the abdomen horizontally between the hip bones and contour the abdominal muscles, skin and tissues. The surgeon will place drainage tubes under the skin if required. Patients with fat deposits only below their navel will need a shorter and less complex procedure where the surgeon will make a smaller incision and perform key-hole surgery, inserting a small camera to see what needs to be done.

What are the alternatives to a Tummy Tuck?

Alternatives to a tummy tuck procedure are liposuction procedures, diet and exercise, and radiofrequency or laser assisted procedures to reduce abdominal fat.

What is the recovery time after a Tummy Tuck?

Patients recover from a mini or partial tummy tuck procedure within a month but full recovery after a full tummy tuck procedure will take about 6 months.

Tummy Tuck vs Mini Tummy Tuck

The full tummy tuck procedure is employed when patients require the contouring of the entire abdominal region. The procedure takes about four to five hours to complete. It takes about six months to completely recover from a tummy tuck procedure. A mini tummy tuck procedure is for patients who have excessive localized fat in their lower abdomen. The procedure is minimally invasive and takes about one hour. Patients recover from a mini tummy tuck procedure within a month.

How long does swelling last after Tummy Tuck?

Swelling after a tummy tuck procedure may last for about six months.

Pitangui Medical & Beauty - Plastic Surgery Clinic in South KoreaFeatured

Pitangui Medical & Beauty

3F Soo-il Building 2-15 Nonhyun-dong,, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
Rating from 32 Reviews It is perfect !Mégane, France, 02 Mar 17

I had (at the same time) nose surgery, and stomach/back/love handles liposuccion. I was surprised that I felt no pain at all for my nose. Dr Yoo also had too take some cartilage behind my ear, and I felt NOTHING. The liposuccion was quite painful (the bruises, not the stitches), but the result totally worth the pain. It was two weeks ago, and people keep telling me that I am slimmer than before. For the price, it is perfect ! I chose Pitangui because I saw quite good reviews on this "older" clinic. I was looking for a place when I will be able to be a better myself, and not some kind of stranger with dramatic changes. And it's what I have. Dr Yoo did magical things, as you see NOTHING outside my nose, and the stitches for the liposuccion are in "invisible" areas. I came back to my home, and nobody, except the people that already knew, saw something. Moreover, the staff is really kind, and patient. They look for everything, in order to make you leave with the best health you could imagine - I had more blood tests and blood pressure reviews than in a whole year haha. It's very relieving, since I was alone there. I would totally recommend Pitangui for people who want something great, and be able to recognize themselves at the same time. For people who want to have people around them during the whole process.

Grand Plastic Surgery - Plastic Surgery Clinic in South KoreaFeatured

Grand Plastic Surgery

514-16, Sinsa Dong, Gangnam Gu, Seoul, 135887
Rating from 26 Reviews I cannot wait to get out in the sun and by the beach to enjoy my new younger look and body.Yuliya, Landstuhl, 01 Aug 16

The day of my surgery, I was so excited. I was not nervous even a little bit. My time had come for me to get the surgery that I had thought about some time. Main factor was to choose the right clinic for myself, and when I found that my husband got a job in Korea, I decided it is a sign to do it in Seoul vs Germany, since it is a Mecca of plastic surgeries. Now, the most important part was to choose the right place, and my criteria was to "feel" my doctor during consultation. I wanted him to be experience, confident, and exited for the best result for me. I found my doctor in Grand Plastic Surgery Hospital, and immediately scheduled the surgeries. I decided to do two main procedures at once to avoid going under general anaesthesia twice. From my previous experience, I remember how long it took for me to recover from anaesthesia's side effects. Now the day has come! I thought that I was both mentally and physically prepared. Looking back, I was both prepared as well as not prepared. I arrived, and everything went like clockwork with the staff at the Grand Plastic. I was prepped and taken in for surgery. In total, it took around six hours. After my procedures were done, I awoke to being in pain; of course, this I expected. Unfortunately, I have a low threshold for pain; just meditation, positive thoughts, and a final image of my improved self helped me to be strong during most critical first twenty-four hours. For some reason, a tremendous source of the pain was coming from the cartridge of my right ear where I believe the bandage was the cause; it wasn't a surgical site. I asked to stay overnight in Grand Plastic since I knew my pain would be enormous, and I hoped in a hospital I would get better care during first hours of recovery vs at home. After surgery, I was moved to a single person room; nice room, and the privacy was much enjoyed by that time of the day. I found it difficult to sleep, but I was expecting this. It is hard to find a comfortable position after what my body was just put through. The bright spot for me was knowing that each day after, I would feel a little bit better until the pain was just a memory. Another good thing about the private room was that I did not keep anybody else awake. I couldn't have predicted what issues I might have in the first night after my surgery, but I had a positive attitude about having my procedures done and knew that I was getting the best results at the end of this journey with Grand Plastic Surgery. I could see through all this bruising and swelling and see a beautiful ‘Cinderella' on the other end. If there was one thing that I had wished I had the first night was a large box of fruit popsicles to help with how tender my throat was after the tube that was placed in for the surgery, and lower my fever. Morning came, and like the sun rising, my mood did as well. I was look forward to my first treatment. The nurse was a very caring person. I am so thankful to her. She did try to be as soft as she could to minimize my pain during the changing of all the dressings. Day shift of caregivers were very helpful. They were able to provide a thermometer to confirm what I already knew; I was running a fever, along with some much appreciated ice packs to help cool me. Even small stuff as a smile from them or any positive words were appreciated. Morning also brought the return of my English-speaking consultants/interpreters. They had been fantastic through all of my getting prepared for surgery. From my very first visit, they presented themselves in such a professional (yet personal) manner and helpful role, I can't say enough good things about my interactions with them. Just wonderful people who like their job and truly care for the best of the patient's needs. Despite my being short on patience and feeling very irritable from the pain, they were still there and literally held my hand the day following my surgery and had the patience to keep answer all my questions again and again without once showing me that they could be irritated by it. They also kept my family updated on my status since I did not have any contact with them, and when finally I got my wallet, they ordered and brought me my lunch. I know that I made the right choice going with Grand Plastic Surgery. All of my research ensured that I had picked the top choice in this part of the world to use for my procedures. I'm home now and feeling better each day, especially since I could control pain and fever better. Even so, my weakness and fever is still here, but I am confident that, like the pain, it will pass as well, day after day. Now I am concentrating on the best recovery and follow all doctor's guidances to the letter. No regrets having my surgeries on face and breast lifting. Cinderella story on the way to a happy end! One month later: Today marks the four weeks after my surgery. Minus all the bandaging, itchiness, not being able to take showers and occasional feverish/cold feelings, I look great! My face has a youthful glow that I recall from my college years, and I love having it again. I got a facelift, fat injections, and removed the bags under my eyes and breast lift. At first, I thought it is too much to get it all done at once. However, I am so happy that I listened to the doctor and chose to go with Grand. I expected great things, and yet this has surpassed my expectations. I still have the tape on my incisions that is now skin tone and can hardly be seen, but will help to minimize the visual scarring. Most of the 'scars' are really just faint lines on my skin. After the breast lift, my breasts are now even perkier than when I was a teenager. Needless to say, they have gotten my husband's full attention. I can totally rock a T-shirt braless; I can't wait to visit the beach next month. It is a shame that I can't post pictures of the before and after of my breast due to privacy requirements. Trust me, they are truly remarkable! Doctor told me to still be careful, but I cannot wait to get out in the sun and by the beach to enjoy my new younger look and body. I will keep you posted about my recovery progress. It is a great place!

Evita Clinic

Rating from 40 Reviews You get a free change of dressing daily and the doctor does this himselfAnonymous, Canada, 04 Sep 18

I had a full tummy tuck and thigh liposuction a month ago. When I came back home, my friends noticed the change in my body right away. Dr Jeon did a very good job in both surgeries. People asked me where I had them done and they are all planning on coming to Korea too. Sure, I had all the bruising, swelling and had my belly button infected but they were all part of the post-op hazards associated with these type of surgeries. They all treat every patient uniquely and the treatments were 360-degree to cater to your needs. The clinic became my second home away from home because everyone was so warm and accommodating. They do 360-degree liposuction so it caters to more areas achieving a well-proportioned contouring. They respond quickly whenever I have a question online. Their post op massage and infrared light therapy were amazing. You get a free change of dressing daily and the doctor does this himself. I would highly recommend this clinic!

Tummy Tuck ₩2200000 - ₩5500000
Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy-tuck is a surgical option to remove loose sagging skin and excess fat around the abdomen. And usually at the same time, the muscles of the abdomen wall will also be surgically tightened to give a flatter, firmer and contoured abdomen. Excess sagging skin is a familiar problem after pregnancy and excessive weight loss. Although our skin is versatile and flexible, no matter how much dieting and exercise, sometimes it is extremely difficult to shrink it back to its original shape. This is usually the case when the skin and muscles have been stretched so much that the solution is surgery. Abdominoplasty becomes an option for individuals bothered with prominent sagging and loose skin folds, those struggling to re-shape their abdominal area and for women following pregnancy looking to return to their pre-pregnancy shape.
Lipoabdominoplasty ₩3300000 - ₩5500000
Liposuction is done as a stand-alone procedure, and other times tummy tuck is done as a single procedure. Sometimes, Evita Clinic do also together liposuction and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) are requested by patients and performed one after the other. 
Mini Abdominoplasty ₩1100000 - ₩3300000
Evita’s surgeon has been performing lipoabdominoplasty safely and effectively for many years. However, Tummy tuck is a major body contouring procedure, and, as such, it needs an somewhat long recovery time and careful post-surgical care.It need to rest for at least two weeks. They should plan to take at least this much time off from work and stay in Korea.
