What is body contouring?

Also known as body shaping, body contouring is the process of altering the shape of your body to achieve the desired appearance. It usually involves the removal of unwanted fat or skin that’s left over from previous weight loss journeys, surgeries, or other common experiences. There are a variety of procedures included under the umbrella of body contouring, some of which are invasive and require surgical intervention while others are completely non-invasive. Understanding the different kinds of body contouring options can make it easier for people on their health and wellness journey to find the best procedure for them. When you come to South Korea, we will find you the right surgery clinic for your needs at an affordable rate.

Can body contouring help me achieve my ideal look?

It’s important to remember that diet and exercise are foundational when trying to change how your body looks. However, there is a limit to what can be accomplished no matter how much exercise is done or how strict one eats. Some people struggle with a final amount of stubborn belly fat that won’t seem to go away while others have some excess skin leftover from an impressive weight loss. Still, there are individuals who simply have genetics that doesn’t match up to their ideal look. Through Shin Medical’s services of body sculpting in South Korea, patients can get closer to their dream physique.

Shin Medical specializes in body contouring in South Korea, offering a wide range of procedures to help clients look and feel great about their appearances.

What We Offer

Liposuction

Have a stubborn pocket of fat that just won’t seem to go away no matter how many diets you try or how often you exercise? Liposuction might just be the solution you’ve been looking for.

What is it?

Liposuction is a common medical procedure where excess fat is removed from the body. Unlike when you exercise, liposuction can target specific fat deposits for removal. You can have the process completed in a single area or in multiple regions where fat is unwanted including the chin, neck, arms, back, stomach, flanks, thighs, and legs.

How does it work?

A sterile mixture of saltwater and anesthetic gets injected into the target region to help with the fat removal and reduce pain. Our surgeons will make a tiny incision to insert a small tube which will act as a vacuum to suck out all the fat you don’t want. It’s that easy!

Surgery Time

Liposuction surgery takes around 5~6 hours.

Hospital Stay

You do not need to stay in the hospital after surgery.

Days in South Korea

We suggest you stay at least 14 days after surgery.

Recovery

You can start doing daily activities 2 weeks after surgery. Final result can be seen after 6 months

What are the results?

Liposuction removes the fat cells from underneath the skin in the target region. You should be able to keep off the weight as long as you exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet.

Shin Medical offers liposuction to South Korea residents and travelers used to look and feel their best. Feel free to contact us to set up a free consultation.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

Struggling with excess skin around your midsection from a weight loss journey? You don’t have to live with it forever! Abdominoplasties, more commonly known as Tummy Tucks, are designed to remove this extra skin so you can show off your hard work!

What is it?

A tummy tuck focuses more on the removal of excess skin rather than fat reduction. The process involves the cutting away of loose skin around the stomach region, usually leftover from excessive weight loss or liposuction. In fact, it’s very common for tummy tucks to be performed with liposuction.

How does it work?

Our doctors will isolate the excess skin the patient wants removed before using a highly precise, safe, and advanced procedure to remove the skin completely. This is followed up with advanced suturing techniques to lower the level of tension on the skin to mitigate scarring.

Surgery Time

Tummy tuck surgery takes around 4~5 hours.

Hospital Stay

You do not need to stay in the hospital after surgery.

Days in South Korea

We suggest you stay at least 14 days after surgery.

Recovery

You can start doing daily activities 3 weeks after surgery. Final result can be seen after 6 months.

What are the results?

Following a tummy tuck procedure, patients will have a certain section of their skin removed with light scarring from the cutting.

5D Body Sculpting

Interested in gaining more muscle definition following a liposuction procedure? You’ll definitely want to use our 5D Body Sculpting solutions.

What is it?

5D liposuction is an advanced marking process that combines 2D drawing with 3D body design to achieve the best liposuction results. Most doctors simply rely on 2D drawing when planning out the liposuction procedure which doesn’t take muscle definition into account.

How does it work?

When designing a liposuction procedure, our doctors utilize 5D body sculpting that will optimize the amount of fat being removed while leaving the patient with increased muscle definition. The whole point is to use the liposuction procedure to shape the body in a manner that highlights the muscle underneath the fat that’s being removed.

Surgery Time

5D Liposculpture surgery takes around 2~3 hours.

Hospital Stay

You do not need to stay in the hospital after surgery.

Days in South Korea

We suggest you stay at least 14 days after surgery.

Recovery

You can start doing daily activities 2 weeks after surgery. Final result can be seen after 6 months.

What are the results?

Just like liposuction and other body contouring techniques, 5D body sculpting provides instantaneous results. Patients can expect to see increased muscle definition on the very first day.

Brazilian Hip Up

Feeling like you’re lacking a little bit of size in your rear end? The Brazilian hip-up procedure can enlarge the size of a patient’s buttocks while maintaining a natural appearance.

What is it?

The Brazilian hip up is a fat grafting method which essentially means fat is being removed from one area and strategically placed in another. This process kills two birds with one stone by removing unwanted fat in one area while augmenting the size of the patient’s buttocks.

How does it work?

Our doctors begin by determining which area of the body the fat should get removed from. Generally, fat grafting methods take excess fat from the stomach, waistline, or thighs. Once the excess fat is removed, it’s strategically placed in the buttocks to achieve a naturally larger look.

Surgery Time

Brazilian Butt Lift surgery takes around 1~3 hours.

Hospital Stay

You do not need to stay in the hospital after surgery.

Days in South Korea

We suggest you stay at least 14 days after surgery.

Recovery

You can start doing daily activities 2 weeks after surgery. Final result can be seen after 1 month.

What are the results?

Following a Brazilian hip-up procedure, patients will have a naturally-bigger looking backside. However, since fat has a tendency to dissolve over time, this butt enlargement procedure isn’t permanent. To get longer-lasting results, patients will need to opt for a butt implant, another procedure of plastic surgery in Korea we offer.

In general, liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that consists of removing fat cells from certain areas of the body. This results in slimmer, smoother contours, creating a more toned profile. The biggest difference between traditional liposuction and Lipo 360 is that while traditional liposuction focuses on a singular area at a time, Lipo 360 is able to target multiple regions of the abdomen simultaneously. Lipo 360 utilizes 360-degree, circumferential liposuction, effectively resulting in a more comprehensive and efficient procedure.

The main benefit Lipo 360 has over other forms of liposuction is that the focus of 360-degree liposuction lies in the end results. Traditional liposuction only addresses the total amount of fat that has been removed as opposed to the final proportions of the body. The finished profile and look isn’t the main objective when it comes to the traditional method. Circumferential liposuction also produces more comprehensive results for those who are looking to have a better shaped body in less time.

360 Liposuction is a liposuction procedure that encompasses all areas of the midsection, covering 360 degrees around. The corresponding areas that are able to undergo treatment include the abdominals, both upper and lower, the obliques, and the mid- to lower back and hiprolls. Lipo 360 offers the patient a range of possibilities in order to ensure that they get the custom results they desire.

With 360 liposuction, the recovery period is very short. Downtime is minimal and most patients will be able to resume their daily activities and duties in just several days. While only slight downtime is usually required for most people, with any surgical procedure, it can vary from person to person, so you should ask doctor An and follow all of his post-op instructions in order to receive the best results.
