Hope that this entry will help people who are thinking of having a breast augmentation in Korea. DR. Jae-Sang Ban recommended Nikki to go for water drop silicone as the result is more natural than conventional round shaped type.

Is the surgery painful?
Nikki have very low tolerance for pain as she thinks that removing stitches for her rhinoplasty is painful, therefore breast surgery is no otherwise for her. I remembered her grumble and snort about the discomfort and pain when she tried to move around, especially anything which involved her upper body will left her in agony. Thus, I have to slide my hands behind her back and slowly support her to get up from the bed when she want to get up to take her medication. Also simple things such as putting on clothes will be a challenge too during the period, as you can’t raise your hand up.

Any advice for people who are considering to go for breast augmentation?
Trust me that it will be better to go with someone who will take care of you OR I will highly recommend you girls to go through DocFinderKorea and stay at Banobagi’s guesthouse instead of hotel. As DocFinderKorea will accompany you for check up and if you have any discomfort or needs, you can just let Shin know as he will be your “nanny” during the trip. Lol! A few of my readers who go thru DocFinderKorea gave me positive feedbacks on their services, which I’m very happy to hear it. You happy, I also happy for you girls! If you need someone to talk to during your stay in Korea, feel free to Facebook message me or email me at and show me some pictures if you want. And, once again… Thank you Shin Park for taking good care of my readers! ♥

Lastly, at least choose a reputable clinic such as Banobagi. Do your research by asking someone who went to the clinic before or ask Shin from DocFinderKorea to recommend you a few clinic that is specialist in the surgery that you’ll be doing. Those clinic that we know which is good online, might not be as good as what we think. Pictures can be photoshop and some of the clinic did lots of advertising online which make it looks like they are a reputable clinic. We as a foreigner will not get to know all this details!


For those who want to go for breast surgery, please remember that this is not a small surgery so DO NOT settle for the less and put yourself in danger.

According to DocFinderKorea, cases such as doctor was swap before the surgery is very common in Korea. Do you know a Korean patient died after face surgery in a particular clinic (if you want to know which clinic email me) because they change the doctor secretly to a dentist, just like that and the girl who is in university lost her life. In Korea, they called it as “Ghost Surgery” which is the practice of substituting one surgeon for another without the patient’s knowledge and the clinic have been doing that since long ago. Another clinic that is being raved and reviewed by a quite a few bloggers, which is Grand Plastic Surgery. A 19 years old girl lost brain function during rhinoplasty and double eyelid surgery. Both the clinic and Grand is very famous to local and foreigners, but after hearing all these. I don’t think that it’s a wise choice to go there anymore.

Was it worth it?
Despite the painful experience and long recovery process, she thinks that it’s worth it because she finally got the body that she have dreamed of for the longest time. Moreover it’s something that she have always wanted to do.

Is there any scar?
At first the scar look like a fine line however as time passes, it became a red visible line. The doctor did mentioned that it will take a while for the scar to be less obvious, you can ask Banobagi’s doctor to prescribe a scar removal cream for you. As for Nikki, she did not apply scar removal hence the scar will take longer time to be less obvious.

How long does it takes to heal?
The recovery period depends on individual, however stitches will be removed after 7 days and the pain will reduced after two weeks. The breast will look fake and feels hard during the first few weeks, it sorta feels like a dried up steam bun that is exposed to air, but this is completely normal as it takes time for her breast to drop and fluff. I’ve read some other people breast surgery review and most of them was told to massage it even if it hurts but in Nikki’s case DR. Jae-Sang Ban asked her not to massage them as it’s not necessary to do so as the breast will get soften by itself.

Nikki is pressing her own breast showing that the it’s getting softer and natural day by day, after her breast augmentation at Banobagi. Now she no longer envy her friends who are able to flaunt their body anymore. Neither she will feel self-conscious in a bikini or having to reconsider getting a low cutting clothes.

p/s: The scar isn’t visible when people look at her breast because the scar is under the breast, which will only be visible when people look up from lower place. It may seem very distracting at first but as time goes by the scar will fade away, for people who are worry about scarring problem ask Banobagi to prescribe you a good scar removal gel.

    Terrifying to even hear about the “Ghost Surgery/Doctor” issue that’s been on the rise lately.
    Any form of Plastic (Cosmetic) surgery should be carefully looked into, after all, with it being a surgery. . You wouldn’t want to set up an appointment/procedure with anything or anyone that doesn’t seem completely credible.

    Are the asymmetrical nipples a result of the surgery?

    Miyake Reply:

    The asymmetrical nipple was because she raise one side of her hand to take the picture.
