Department of Plastic Surgery, Samsung Medical Center
The ultimate goal of the Department of Plastic Surgery is to correct and restore abnormal body form and function. Our two specialty areas include reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. The former deals primarily with congenital malformation (e.g. cleft lip and palate, ear malformation, hand and foot malformation, and cranial and facial malformation), burns, and facial limb injuries while the latter focuses on improving the appearance of normal body features through double eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty and breast enlargement. Though not as essential to physical health, cosmetic surgery is a part of reconstructive surgery and hence requires comprehensive, thorough academic and clinical training.
We offer the finest patient care with top-caliber physicians and advanced technology. Our staff composed of 6 specialists, 8 interns and 25 nurses work in unison to deliver the highest level of expertise and perform an average of 2,500 operations a year. Nearly 40% of such operations turn out to be for aesthetic restoration, testifying to the fact that SMC is the nation's most sought-after institution for cosmetic surgery. We offer patients superior experience in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery by attaining innovative techniques and training world-class plastic surgeons.
