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.

It is perfect !Mégane, France, 02 03 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.

Today a week after my operation I can say that I am 100% satisfiedKarina, South Korea, 14 10 19

My operations were: nose reduction and profiling, chin liposuction, facial rejuvenation. My nose was very big and thick. The chin was a surgery that I had done years ago and it was a mistake. Rejuvenation was a doctor's recommendation. The work the doctor did was excellent. I was always traumatized and did not want to take photos, today a week after my operation I can say that I am 100% satisfied. I chose this clinic by chance, but the reception of the people who work there was very welcoming. The security I felt when talking to the doctor was amazing too. It is an excellent team, super friendly and respectful. For this clinic and its work team, I only have words of thanks to each and every one of them.

I feel like he went above and beyond what is normalLinda, US, 11 08 19

This review is for Dr Rhee and his astounding, very rare level of customer service. I've done a lot of surgery in Korea, and in many different clinics, so a word of advice: It's just as important to find someone who you think will do a good job, but has good post-op customer service. Because every clinic has beautiful pictures, but a lot of them turn you away if you're ever concerned or unhappy about the results. And sometimes, things can happen, even outside of your control. As for Dr Rhee, he is so awesome. I did my facelift, breast implants, liposuction, and calf reduction with him. When I was a new patient, he was so kind and attentive even though I had a lot of questions. He took the time to understand what I wanted (even more than most doctors), and he's also freaking hilarious, my goodness. Even while I was healing after surgery, I was in so much pain that when it was time to leave, I still felt too weak to move. So he let me stay 2 extra days in the hospital than normal. But all in all, my boobs looked great! However, after a month and the swelling started going down, I started noticing my breasts were a little uneven. And this is when I started freaking out. Because maybe the results were screwed up, and I'd have to live with it for the rest of my life. Like I mentioned, most clinics usually just brush you off even if you're unhappy with the result. Not to mention, you just threw away all this hard-earned money. I booked an appointment to see Dr Rhee for a follow-up, I was terrified that I'd walk into a room with an annoyed doctor, and he'd just tell me to "just massage it" and tell me to live with it because "breasts aren't perfect, to begin with." But this is where the magic happened. You know happened instead? I walk in and he's all super bubbly like he always is, even though I'm no longer a new client, and the first thing out of his mouth is: "Ah yes, I can see it's a little uneven. Yep, I can fix it." He offered a revision before I could even say anything! I can't tell you how rare that is. Again, I've done many many surgeries at about 10 different clinics total, so I probably have more experience with Korean clinics than most people. Dr Rhee then continued to spend a lot of time with me walking through all my concerns with my results and addressing them, and he kept saying "I can see why you'd feel that way." Very customer-centric, and addressed and without hesitation agreed to touch up everything I was dissatisfied with. And throughout all this, it wasn't an uncomfortable conversation. He was just as positive as he was when I was a new patient, so I didn't feel like they were only nice before they got my money (some clinics are like that.) He was kind throughout my whole appointment and even came back to see me again to make sure I felt happy with the other surgeries that the other doctors did. (Because he doesn't do facelifts.) All in all, really, really happy with Dr Rhee. I feel like he went above and beyond what is normal. Jiwon the translator was also very empathetic, and they lifted a huge weight off my shoulders. That's why I felt so compelled to write this review. Again, would highly recommend Grand and Dr Rhee! Because again, remember that all of the clinics and doctors in Korea can do great work, so what next? Look for someone who you can trust to do the job, but will also stand by it. If you're spending your hard-earned money on your body/face, it can be very heartbreaking to feel like a number, because the clinic doesn't care because they have a million other patients coming in after you. Whereas with Dr Rhee, never have I seen a doctor so warm and accommodating.

The doctor and the nurse are very helpful before/during and also after the surgeryQuinn, Indonesia, 28 10 18

My mother did tummy tuck and liposuction here. The staff is really friendly and fluent in English. The doctor and the nurse are very helpful before/during and also after the surgery. Thus, it is helpful for us as the patient to communicate with them and they can explain the process of the surgery specifically.

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.
