Korea is a word leader in plastic surgery and only increasing its lead these days. There seems to be some unusual tie between technological change and plastic surgery, as if computer animation, movies, interactive social networks and plastic surgery were part of a continuum. Maybe the interest in avatars is spilling over into the alteration of one’s physical appearance. Or perhaps the full capacity of new innovations in IT and software is being most quickly applied to plastic surgery here in Korea. I stopped by a plastic surgeon myself the other day just to learn what could be done. I know I am getting a bit over the hill and could use some sprucing up. Well the range of options was mind-blowing and the enthusiasm, expressed was quite impressive.
These signs around Seoul indicate the latest in plastic surgery. Very intriguing.
