"Plastic surgery has become common thing, like shopping, but you should not forget that it is medical treatment. So you shouldn't choose a clinic just because it is cheaper.

UVOM Plastic Surgery is know for endoscopic zygoma reduction, lower chin balancing, super lateral canthoplasty, and forehead reduction.
Endoscopic zygoma reduction is a surgery that uses 2~3cm incision in the scalp and uses patent approved 'J-shaped Saw'. It can make precise osteotomy to minimize bleeding and swelling. It doesn't need fixing screws so patients can be discharged on the same day and can eat. Its recovery is so fast.
This surgery method is featured on american plastic surgery text book 'Cosmetic surgery of the asian face, 2005' and 'PRS. Plastic And Reconstructive Surgery 2003.1' proving its safety and effectiveness.
'lower chin balancing' is correcting the front chin length to the ideal length, and shaping the mandible according to the front chin, make it slim and balanced. UVOM uses its own surgical saw, can shave upto 1mm distance to the nerve line, and able to do precise correction. There is no secondary angle after surgery and effective for revision case as well.
'super lateral canthoplasty' elongation of eye's horizontal length, opening the outer corner of eyes. Biggest problem of lateral canthoplasty is it can get attached together again. And super lateral canthoplasty prevents this. It also improves outer corner wrinkles and slanted eyes so effective if you have up slanted eyes.
Before, only cure for the big forehead is hair transplant. But when the hair is transplanted to the forehead, it was pretty obvious and density of new hair was low therefore new hair line was awkward.
'Forehead reduction' is solution to this. 'Forehead reduction' cuts forehead and suture back according to hairline, it is hardly noticeable and leaves some baby hair on the forehead so it is very natural.
Fat graft is injecting some fat to the sunken area. It uses fat that is harvested from patient's abdomen or thighs, it has high fat survival rate and semi permanent. It is much more natural compare to implant insertion.
"There is no easy way when it comes to dealing with human body. You should consider each patient dearly and should not forget you're dealing with life" says Dr. Lee.
"There are patients who wants too many procedures. But wanting too much might cause side effect, and hard to satisfy from the outcome. In such case, we talk to patients not to have too much surgeries, and if patients disagrees, we just don't proceed with surgery"
"Purpose of cosmetic surgery is about giving confidence to patients. It is not just about looks, it is also about inner confidence." says Dr. Lee.
He has such affection towards his patients. He also does medical volunteering and active on 'love sharing'. He is doing volunteers in the country and also active overseas.

And in 2010, he founded GIC (Global image care) for more systematical medical volunteering. He is planning medical volunteer in Indonesia, Mongolia, and Madagascar.
Dr. Lee says "We want to give back to society. We don't wish to be a clinic that just aims for profit. Where we are now, is thanks to our patients who trusted us. We want to give back this love and trust to the needed hands. Love becomes bigger when it is shared. We'll keep on trying to achieve bigger love"
