Asian Cosmetic Surgery

People who want pieces sucked/chopped/frappéd out of them declined last year in the U.S. The good news is that we are not the only ones feeling the economic pinch. When it affects our ability to perform cosmetic procedures, I think it is getting close to home.

South Korea with its obsession with looking “white” through cosmetic surgery is feeling the pain, and basically foregoing the obsession with wider eyes, whiter skin and higher nose bridges. According to the Taipei Times, the bust for Korea is a boon for the Japanese, Chinese and Korean Americans who can afford inexpensive cosmetic procedures in Seoul. Otherwise, head to Costa Rica for that brand new schnoz.
