    I was wondering what is everyone’s opinion on the best/ideal time to go get plastic surgery for foreigners coming into Seoul?

    I know that most Western countries have their summers off July – September which is where I have met other users.

    Is anyone familiar when clinics do ‘specials’ or the clinics themselves are not too busy and are able to better accommodate a stricter time limit? When do locals do surgery? Is there a preferred month/season?

    @nala great question.

    • Busy (Winter): November to Feb – Surgery slots fill up fast, not as flexible as other seasons
    • Slow: March to May – Better Availability and pricing can be more flexible
    • Steady: June to October  – Better Availability and pricing can be more flexible

    Best weather: April, May, August, September

    Some Korean holiday breaks are also very busy. These are typically a week off of work, so all the locals like to stack their procedures around this time.

    • Korean New Year – Seolnal
    • Korean Thanksgiving – Chuseok

    Since they follow a lunar calendar the dates change every year check out the table below:

    Try to avoid consultation and surgery dates around this time:

    Korean New Year 3 to 4 days Thanks Giving 3 to 4 days
