I would highly recommend Nana Plastic Surgery Clinic. I had a full mommy makeover and Dr Hwang did a great job! The language barrier was never a problem thanks to the amazing English consultant Kylie. She has put in hours helping me …
I haven’t had any type of plastic surgery before so I was a little nervous going in, but all the staff at 1mm made it really easy for me. My areas of focus were the lower abdomen, lower arm, axillary breast tissue and inner thighs. During my online consultation they let me know that since I was already slim mini lipo would be a better option for me. When I came in for my in-person consultation the doctor and consulting staff were very thorough in asking what kind of shaping I wanted and also letting me know what would and would not be possible, which I appreciated. On the day of the surgery I was quite nervous but as they explained what was going to happen it helped calm me down and by the time it came to the actual surgery I was more excited than anything else. Before the surgery I met with the doctor one last time so that he could map the areas. He said he thought I looked pretty calm. Nice to know I’m good at acting. Right after the surgery I met with the doctor again who explained how everything went, which it thankfully went according to plan, and just answered any questions I had regarding aftercare. I’ve heard instances of people describing the procedure as painful but rather than that I would say it felt more like discomfort equatable to a muscle ache. I was even able to catch a bus home myself a few hours after. This was my first ever surgical procedure of any kind and the doctor and staff at 1mm really made it a pleasant experience throughout. My korean isn’t great so they always had someone there to translate for me and just stay with me to answer questions or just help me feel more relaxed. I didn't have anyone accompany me to any of my appointments so that was really nice. All in all it was a positive experienced I know where I'm going to go if I ever decide to do anything else.
I travel from Thailand to have bigger breasts and I glad to come here. More expensive than Thailand, but I not trust doctor here so much as korean

Male breast reduction, also known as gynecomastia correction, is a surgical procedure to treat overdeveloped male breasts or gynecomastia – a condition in which male breasts are enlarged due to imbalance of the hormones estrogen and testosterone. The procedure is usually performed on men whose physical health is affected by the condition or men who feel uncomfortable or self-conscious about their chest. The ideal candidates for this procedure are healthy men with skin that is elastic to adjust to breast reduction.
Male breast reduction is carried out under general anesthetic or local anesthetic with sedation. The procedure starts by making an incision around the nipple to remove fat as well as glandular tissue from the breast, as well as some excess skin. In some cases, your surgeon may also perform liposuction in conjunction with the procedure to remove fat. The final step of the procedure is closing the incisions with stitches.
The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you can leave the hospital on the same day of the surgery. However, you should not leave South Korea immediately to allow your body to recover and attend follow-up hospital checkups. Plan to stay in the country for at least 5 to 10 more days.
The total recovery period until you can go back to your full routine can take around a month. However, some people whose jobs are not physically demanding are able to return to work as well as some of their activities in 1-2 weeks.
Your surgeon will give you detailed instructions on how to care for your surgical wounds as well as diet and exercise to avoid complications. You may need to wear a pressure garment during your recovery period to reduce bruising and swelling. To maintain the result of your surgery, make sure to maintain a healthy weight by making some healthy lifestyle changes.
The procedure is generally safe and highly successful. However, just like other types of surgery, it carries some degree of side effects and risks that you need to be aware of. The side effects and risks include skin injury, noticeable scar, permanent pigment changes in the breast, slightly mismatched nipples or breasts, loss of breast sensation, numbness, and excessive bleeding.
Male breast reduction is currently the most effective treatment to reduce enlarged male breasts. If you do not want to undergo surgery, you need to consult with your doctor about what your best options are. In some cases, your doctor may recommend liposuction to remove excess fat from your breasts, but leaving breast gland tissue intact.
Before male breast reduction, your enlarged breast may affect you physically or you may feel very self-conscious. After the procedure, your self-esteem and self-confidence may increase significantly and any physical problems you experience before the procedure should be gone.
