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:
