Seoul plans to dominate South Korean medical tourism industry

Seoul City has announced ambitious plans to increase its number of medical tourists by nearly 50% this year to 52,000. Much of this effort is focused on attracting patients from China now that visa regulations have been loosened.

The city is developing special tour packages that allow those seeking medical care to also experience Korean food, culture, and technology.

Much of the effort is directed at attracting patients seeking cosmetic surgery, not just from China but Hong Kong, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, the UK, and the USA.

Cost is said not to be an issue, with women from other countries of East Asia willing to pay up to three times more for surgery in South Korea.

Much of the demand is attributed to the "Korean Wave" and the desire for those from afar to look more like popular Korean pop musicians and actors.
