7 1 추진배경및목적 현대사회는생명공학과보건의료기술의발달로인하여한국, 일본은물론서구선진국들은이미고령화사회로 진입하였고, 글로벌경제성장, 정보통신산업의발달과다양한경제요인등으로인하여소득증대의결과를가 져왔다. 이러한환경변화는의료서비스를하나의산업으로바라보는인식의변화를가져왔다. 한국정부또한 경제성장과더불어의료서비스를규제와관리를통한공공적성격의서비스에서효율성과수익성제고를통해 성장하여야하는산업으로인식하여육성전략을제시하고있다.( 윤형호, 2007). 또한, 미래학자존나이스빗 (John Naisbitt) 이관광산업을자동차산업, 석유산업과더불어 21세기세계 3대산 업으로언급한바와같이관광산업은글로벌경제의무한성장산업으로서각광을받고있다. 관광산업이단순 한 1 차원적서비스산업차원에서타산업과의접목, 각분야와의협력네트워크를형성하여상생하는고도의 3 차산업으로산업간경쟁을초월한비즈니스모델로경쟁력을갖추어가고있는점이이를증명하고있다. 또 한, 각국은관광산업의육성을위해관광산업과타산업과의융복합을통한 New Tourism 정책과전략과제를 발굴하여관광역량을집중하고있다. 이런점에서, 의료관광은융복합관광의대표분야로서국제관광과의료 서비스의결합은해외여행과해외여행목적지국가의의료서비스가결합하는형태로해외현지에서양질의 의료서비스를적정한가격에신속하고편리하게제공함으로써새로운의료관광객이동을창출하고있다. 이미미국, 헝가리, 태국, 필리핀, 싱가포르, 인도, 일본등에서도부가가치가높은관광산업을의료산업과연 계하여의료관광산업으로육성시키고있으며, 싱가포르등의료선진국은큰효과를거두고있다. 특히, 의료 관광은선진국수준의의료서비스와휴양시설을갖춘싱가포르, 태국, 인도, 말레이시아등아시아지역을중 심으로급속히성장하고있다. 이배경에는저가항공 (LCC) 출현등으로해외이동이편리해지고선택이다양 해졌으며, 글로벌의료기술의발전과해외의료서비스에대한기대상승등도원인으로들수있다. 무엇보다 중요한것은각국의의료서비스수준과의료안전법이비교적표준화되어의료사고나부작용에대한불안감 이해소되었다는점이다. 또한아로마테라피나마사지요법을받고육체적, 정신적여유를찾는웰빙 (well-being) 을위함과동시에다른나라의전통의료를체험하기위해관광을결정하는경우가늘어나고있는 추세다 ( 홍현아, 2007). 우리나라역시의료관광을 21 세기새로운고부가가치산업으로인식하고, 의료법개정, 의료기관국가인증제 도입, 외국인환자의료분쟁해결시스템마련, u-health 활성화종합계획수립등신성장동력으로써의료관광 추진전략을정부차원에서수립, 추진중에있다. 보건복지부는의료서비스분야에있어병의원의해외환자유 치수용여건마련을, 문화체육관광부와한국관광공사는의료관광해외홍보마케팅업무추진을, 외교통상부와 법무부는의료관광비자도입등정부부처간역할분담을통한의료관광지원체제를전략적으로추진중에있 다. 이와같이국가차원의의료관광산업활성화노력은수요측면, 공급측면, 국가측면등 3가지측면에서그이 7

8 01 서론 유를찾을수있다. 먼저, 수요측면에서는고령화사회와소득증대로인한관광수요증가와국가간이동이 용이해지면서의료서비스에대한접근성이향상되었기때문이다. 또한의료비용이나의료서비스질측면에서 예민해진소비자인식의변화가영향을주었다. 두번째로공급측면에서는첨단의료기술의발전과 JCI 등 국제수준의인증및품질확보를통해외국인에게의료서비스를제공할수있는능력을각국이확보하였다. 또한해외협력병원과의국제적네트워크와정보기술의발전, 그에따른의료기관및의료관광알선회사들의 새로운비즈니스추진등이영향을주었다. 또한의료관광의특징상장기간숙박가능성, 2차관광객의유입 등은공급자들로하여금의료관광산업을매력적으로인식하게된요인이기도하다. 세번째로국가적인측면 에서도신규고용창출, 연관산업의발전, 국내의료기관의해외자금유입, 국가이미지및브랜드가치상 승등의기대효과로우리나라도정부차원에서의료관광산업을신성장동력사업으로정하고정책적노력을 기울이고있다. 그러나, 국내의료관광서비스는싱가포르나태국등의료관광선진국들에비해국제적인지도가낮은게현실 이다. 또한의료관광서비스를제공하는의료기관측에서도의료관광의초기단계이기때문에해외환자를대 상으로한명확한서비스시스템구축및전달체계를구축하지못하고있다. 이러한면에서국내의료관광산 업은태국, 싱가포르, 인도등과같은아시아경쟁국들에비하면아직은경쟁력이낮다고할수있다. 그러나최근국내의료기관의끊임없는의료관광객유치노력, 정부및관련기관의정책적뒷받침과의료서 비스국제화와의료관광유치방안에대한연구, 의료관광현장의연구결과접목등을통해일부의료기관에 서의료관광유치효과가점차나타나고있으며, 이제는싱가포르등경쟁국의집중적견제를받고있는상황 이다. 그러나아직도일부의료기관을제외하고는의료서비스를통한병의원의부가가치창출의중요한요인이되 는상품개발및상품의홍보마케팅준비가절대적으로부족한게현실이다. 특히, 병의원의글로벌인지도 제고와함께글로벌경쟁력을갖춘체계적인의료서비스상품과타깃국가의의료문화에근거한상품구성등 의미비로인해직접적인해외홍보마케팅활동과국내외의료관광유치업체와해외에이전시를대상으로 치밀한비즈니스활동이원활하게이루어지지못하고있다. 또한의료관광유치업체및에이전트역시의료 서비스에대한전문성부족으로적절한성과를내지못하고있는것이현실이다. 따라서본 에서는의료관광서비스를제공하는의료기관의 차별화되고전문화된의료서비스를중심으로바람직한의료서비스전달체계를제안하고, 의료관광유치업체는 의료기관의체계성이부족한상품경쟁력을극대화할수있는선진화된상품구성을통해전문성을확보한 후다양한홍보, 마케팅을전개하여상호공생과시너지효과를창출해야한다는거시적차원의해결방안을 모색하고자한다. 이를통해국내의료관광활성화를위한선결과제에대한시사점제공과의료관광선진국 과의상품경쟁력확보를통해한국의료관광의새로운도약을기대한다. 8

9 2 필요성및주요내용 위에서언급한바와같이본연구의목적은한국의료관광주요상품발굴및상품개발가이드라인제시를통 해, 한국의료관광산업의한단계진전과의료기관과유치업체의상호협조와공생을도모하기위한새로운 형태의의료관광서비스모델을구축하는데있다. 이를위해서는먼저해외환자등고객이필요로하는치료 중심의의료서비스에대해주관적요소를철저히배제하고객관적타당성을바탕으로한, 경쟁력이구체화되 고표출되어있는결과물즉, 의료관광상품을명확히도출해야하며, 두번째는 국내의료서비스로의용이한 접근성과의료관광경쟁국가와의의료수가, 의료문화, 관광등파생상품의경쟁력, 글로벌보험적용내용이 상품에포함되어야한다. 또한해외환자의입국에서귀국까지의다양한서비스를포괄한의료관광상품의패 키지화가이루어져야한다. 글로벌의료관광상품의패키지화는과학적인접근으로경쟁력을제시할필요성이있다. 즉, 이는의료관광 추진과정의각단계별병목현상을제거하기위해그동안노력했던의료기관과유치업체등이앞장설수밖 에없으나, 개별기관이파악하기어려운문제인타깃국가와경쟁국가의생활습관과의료문화, 의료환경, 의료수가, 시장동향, 의료관광상품의구성과종류, 의료관광상품의장 단점을면밀히분석하는등의전문 적자료가필요하였다. 이에, 이번상품개발에서는먼저, 의료관광산업과관련된국내외관련자료를취합, 분석한문헌자료연구를 토대로인터넷, 국내외관련기관및병의원등의각종자료와한국관광공사에서그동안연구해왔던해외시 장분석자료및해외진료과목수가조사비교자료등을통해현재한국의료관광의상품경쟁력을파악하였 고, 두번째로의료관광경쟁국의의료관광상품종류와구성조건등을조사하여한국의료관광상품과비교 분석함으로써장 단점및비교우위경쟁력을찾아새로운상품을제시하였다. 세번째로이번의료관광대 표상품개발은해외각국의주요의료관광상품을비교조사하여장점은부각하고단점을보완하여한국의 료관광이글로벌경쟁력을갖고판매될수있는의료관광상품의가이드를제공하고자하였다. 따라서이한국의료관광주요상품개발은위에서언급한바와같이주관적요소를모두배제한객관성을바 탕으로한국만의경쟁력있는요인과상세한내용을찾아의료서비스등시술을상품패키지화하였다. 이과 정은다음과같은방식으로만들어졌다. 세계의료관광상품을취합하여고객의관점에서장 단점분석 의료기관의의료서비스상품과의료관광전문에이전트의상품을각각취합하여장 단점비교분석 각시술가격과조건, 시술내역등비교 국가별시술방법과문화적요소비교 시술방법과필요성에대한설명과내용분석 병원및주요의사경력소개및경쟁요인분석 주요시술시필수요소의경쟁력요인분석 9

11 3 시사점및결론 대표적인융복합산업인의료관광산업은병의원과해외환자간의유통구조속에서다양한이해관계자와함께 여러형태의중개자들이존재한다. 즉, 의료관광에이전시, 의료관광전문여행사, 의료관광코디네이터, 의료관광 전문마케터, 보험회사와병원, 의사, 마사지사, 물리치료사, 약사, 간호사, 화장품판매사등다양한중개자들 이존재한다. 그러나의료관광상품은다양한매개체와중개자를통해생산자로부터소비자에게물리적인형 태로전달되지는않는다. 의료관광상품은다른서비스상품처럼구매해서직접소비하기전에는테스트해보 거나경험해볼수없는(intangible) 무형성과현장성적인특성을갖고있기때문이다. 예를들면미국환자가 서울에있는한병원에서수술을받으려면직접한국을방문해야한다. 일본에있는임산부가국내병원에서 출산을하려면그병원을직접찾아가야한다. 이처럼의료관광상품은생산과소비가동시에일어나는전형 적인고도의서비스상품이다. 그런데의료관광상품판매의주체인의료관광중개자들의해외환자유치를통한매출증대라는절박한욕구 에대해아무도그해답을줄수없었던게현실이다. 또한의료관광산업의또다른주체인의료기관은그 동안한국의료환경의국내지향적, 쇄국적울타리안에서경쟁없는온실속성장을거듭하였고아직도국내 환자에의한안정적수요로인해해외환자유치에전문유치업체, 의료관광에이전시에비해절실함을느끼고 있지못하고있는게현실이다. 그리고그동안의료관광해외홍보마케팅등의료관광산업의초보단계인국내의료관광은위와같은의료 서비스상품으로서의특성이자연스럽게받아들여졌고해외환자유치를위한병의원의해외홍보마케팅활동 역시구전홍보등소극적인경향이있었다. 그러나해외홍보마케팅, 해외인지도등종합적으로빠르게경 쟁력을확보해가고있는한국의료관광산업은이제이와같은구전홍보방식에서의료관광이해관계자모두 에게도움이되는 과학적인의료관광상품에근거한과학적인홍보, 마케팅이요구되고있다. 아울러, 의료관광에이전트역시아직까지는일천한의료관광추진경험과의료서비스분야에대한전문성이부 족하여해외환자유치상 ( 갑의 ) 위치임에도불구하고항상 ( 을이 ) 될수밖에없는한국의료관광산업의현실 에서갑갑함과절심함을느낄수밖에없게되었다. 이러한상황에서더욱이동일마켓에서의료기관과전문 에이전트들이출혈성경쟁을가속함에따라상호신뢰와불신이팽배해지고해외에이전시의불신에대한해 결방안마련이시급한현황으로다가오고있다. 따라서의료관광의료기관과유치업체간의상생을위한근본적해결방법을찾아야하고상호동등한관계에 서의료서비스에대한전문성을유지하여동반상생의시너지를창출해야만한다. 이번 은이러한의료기관과의료관광유치업의상생을위한 비즈니스기반을마련하는데기여할것으로기대하며, 세계적의료관광산업의흐름속에서한국만의경쟁력을 11

12 01 서론 확보하기위해과학적이고, 객관적인요소들을모두첨부, 분석함으로써, 명실상부한국의료관광주요상품과 상품개발가이드라인을국내최초로제시했다는데그의의가있다. 특히, 의료기관에서는차별화되고전문화된의료서비스로글로벌경쟁력을강화하고유치업체는의료기관의 부족한상품경쟁력을극대화할수있는선진화된상품구성 (Package) 을통해전문성을확보한다양한홍보, 마케팅을전개하여상호공생및시너지효과창출기반을마련할수있다고본다. 12

You may even begin to feel pain while you are sitting or lying down. If medications, changing your activity level, and using walking supports are no longer helpful, you may want to consider total knee replacement surgery. By resurfacing the damaged and worn surfaces of the knee can relieve pain, correct leg deformity and help resume normal activities. You may expect years of service from your artificial knee. If you think you are a possible candidate for Knee Replacement, please contact us for more information. 21

22 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 Another example of an introduction Ex) Total Knee Replacement If knee pain has robbed you of some of life's simple pleasures - taking a walk, playing with your children or grandchildren, working in the garden - don't give up hope. With knee replacement surgery, you can lead an active and satisfying life again. Improve your overall quality of life. With less pain and greater mobility, you'll be able to perform daily tasks and low-impact activities more easily and lead a more comfortable, more independent life. Dramatically reduce knee pain. More than 90% of total knee replacement patients experience a dramatic reduction of knee pain. Improve your range of motion. While your artificial knee won't be as good as your real knee was in its prime, its range of motion should increase noticeably. A total knee replacement involves replacing the damaged bone and cartilage of the knee joint, which provides articulating surfaces. Surgery description You will have a general or spinal anesthetic. An incision is made about 8 inches (19.2 cm) long down the front of your knee. The damaged surfaces of the lower end of your thigh bone and the upper end of your shin bone are removed. These are replaced with an artificial joint. The artificial knee is made from metal, ceramic and plastic. There are many different types of artificial knees. Some are held in with special bone cement, some are not. The surgeon will explain the type he intends to use and the reasons for his choice. The skin is then closed up with stitches or clips. The stitches will be removed around 14 days after your surgery. AComputer Navigation System may also be used at the time of surgery to locate the angle that needs to be severed accurately. The total procedure takes approximately anhour to an hour and a half to perform and recovery time varies between patients. You will be in the hospital for 14 days following your operation in order to regain full usage of your knee. You may stay longer in the hospital upon 22

23 request or relocate to a nearby hotel from where you can commute to the hospital for physical therapy. You may go home when you can walk safely with crutches or a cane. As this is a major surgery, we strongly recommend that a loved one accompany you on your trip, as you will need help during your initial recovery. Once discharged from hospital, you will continue to recover at your hotel or guest house. If you still need nursing help or physical therapy, these services will be provided to you where you are staying. You will need to take it easy for about 3 weeksbefore you will be able to fly home. We will assist with making sure that you receive the care that you require from the airline on your flight home. Below are pictures of a patient with degenerative arthritis who fell and broke his femur bone. <Before surgery> <After surgery> Complications There are possible risks and complications associated with anesthesia, including respiratory or cardiac malfunction. Other complications include the possibility of: -Infection requiring antibiotics and in some cases hospitalization -Infection occurring around the joint years after the surgery -Blood clots in the legs (deep vein thrombosis), which can dislodge and move to the lungs (pulmonary embolism) -Injury to nerves or blood vessels -Loosening or dislocation of the prosthetic devices -Joint stiffness Risks can be reduced by following the surgeon's instructions before and after surgery. 23

24 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 We do not have long waiting lists in South Koreafor this type of surgery, as most of our surgeons work in private hospitals.

We will then communicate directly with you by phone or , in order to obtain more detailed information and initiate the contact between yourself and your surgeon. The surgeon would need to see current x-rays before making a decision regarding your surgery and we will gladly help in facilitating this. Before any final decisions are made, you will have had ample opportunity to discuss your options with the surgeon. The surgeon will also discuss the risks of surgery with you. A well-documented risk of knee replacement surgery is the development of a DVT (blood clot in the calf). This risk can be further increased after any long-haul air travel.

If this is the case, we recommend Cheongshim s hip Joint Replacement. Advantages Surgery description The most important advantage of surgery is the effective and long lasting relief from joint pain. You may expect years of service from your artificial hip. Total Hip Replacement (Hip Arthroplasty) is a long-established procedure for the treatment of Hip Arthritis. In Total Hip Replacement, thedamaged and worn parts of the hip joint- the hip socket (acetabulum) and the ball (femoral head) are removed and replaced with smooth, artificial implants called prostheses, which help make the hip strong, stable, and flexible again. Hip resurfacing is a good choice for younger people needing a hip replacement. Much of the bone is left and only the top of the femoral head is resurfaced. When the resurfaced area 83

84 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 becomes worn out later on in life, a total knee replacement can be done at that time. In the operating theatre, you will first be turned onto your 'good' side (onto the side that does not need surgery) and supports will be placed in front and back to maintain this position during the surgery. The leg to be operatedupon will be cleaned with antiseptic and sterile drapes placed around your hip. The surgery is then carried out by the surgeon and one or two assistants. A scrub nurse who handles all the required instruments for the operation is also an essential member of the team. In addition, a circulating nurse is present in theatre to help. Surgery Details Incision A cut about 6-8 inches long is made through the skin on the outer aspect of the hip and upper thigh. Soft tissue The fat, muscles and deeper tissues are then carefully separated moving them forwards and backwards to expose the bones of the hip. Bone work The hip joint is then dislocated, i.e., the ball of the thigh bone is slipped out from the socket of the pelvis. The natural ball end of the bone is removed. The socket is then prepared for inserting the artificial socket by removing a thin layer of bone. The artificial socket is then implanted in one of two ways. Either your specialist will use bone cement to fix a special plastic socket into the boneof the pelvis or use a metal socket without cement. In the latter case, the socket is held in place by jamming a slightly oversized component into the bone with additional screws if necessary. A plastic liner is then inserted into the metal shell. In both these instances, the bearing surface of the socket is of plastic. The next step in the operation is to replace the natural worn out ball also called the femoral head, with an artificial one. The femoral head is removed by cutting through with a saw and then the upper end of the thigh bone is shaped to conform to the stem of the artificial ball. A trial implant is then temporarily placed in the femur bone and the function of the hip checked. If all is satisfactory, an exact replica of the trial implant for permanent fixation is then inserted into the thigh bone. Usually bone cement is used to anchor the artificial ball into the thigh but sometimes it may be necessary to use 84

85 an implant that can be inserted without cement. Once this is completed, the ball is replaced into the socket and that completes the bone work. Finishing The soft tissue coverings of the hip joint are then stitched layer by layer. Usually two plastic tubes are placed into the hip joint and brought out through the skin and connected to plastic drainage bottles. Bulky dressings are applied to the wound after which the patient is woken up and transferred to the bed and taken to the Recovery area. Once awake, the patient is taken to the ward. The operation takes about 2 hours to perform. When it is finished, a bulky dressing is applied to the wound and a foam wedge (abduction pillow) placed between your legs. The wedge reduces the risk of dislocation (slippage of the ball out of the socket in the hip joint) of the hip. You will then be taken to your room. Rehabilitation You will stay in your room for the first couple of days and slowly start to bend your knees again and sit up. During this time it is important that you have a companion together with you to help you move around. When you cansit in a wheel chair, usually the third day after the surgery, you will go the rehabilitation center for physical therapy with professional therapists who will help you slowly improve your range of motion and help you walk again. In 2 weeks time you will most likely be able to walk with walking aids and be able to board your plane back home. Never the less we advise that you stay in or near the hospital for at least 3 weeks. Complications There are possible risks and complications associated with anesthesia, including respiratory or cardiac malfunction. Other complications include the possibility of: -Infection requiring antibiotics and in some cases hospitalization -Infection occurring around the joint years after the surgery -Blood clots in the legs (deep vein thrombosis), which can dislodge and move to the lungs (pulmonary embolism) -Injury to nerves or blood vessels -Loosening or dislocation of the prosthetic devices -Joint stiffness -Retention of urine and bladder infection Risks can be reduced by following the surgeon's instructions before and after surgery. 85

We will then communicate directly with you by phone or , in order to obtain more detailed information and initiate the contact between yourself and your surgeon. The surgeon willneed to see current x-rays before making a decision regarding your surgery and we will gladly help in facilitating this. Before any final decisions are made, you will have had ample opportunity to discuss your options with the surgeon. The surgeon will also discuss the risks of surgery with you. A well-documented risk of hip replacement surgery is the development of a DVT (blood clot in the calf). This risk can be further increased after any long-haul air travel. For these reasons, the surgeon will require you to arrive in South Korea at least 3 daysprior to your surgery. You will also receive daily drug treatment post-operatively to prevent the development of a DVT.

By interrupting the sleeping patterns of the snorer and the people around them, it can result in tiredness, stress and relationship problems. It can even be a safety risk, as tiredness can result in a lack of care and attention while performing everyday tasks, such as driving. Snoring can also be the sign of deeper medical problems, such as sleep apnea, which must be addressed with urgency. Cheongshim IMC can help you discover the cause of your snoring and how to improve your condition.

It uses radio frequency energy to cause scars in the soft palate and these act like a scaffold, supporting the rest of the tissue. When the patient breathes in and out, because the soft palate is stiffer, it vibrates less and makes less noise. The treatment is done in an outpatient clinic under a local anesthetic, similar to going to the dentist. When the anesthetic is injected into the soft palate, it feels quite uncomfortable for a few seconds, after that the treatment is painless. After the treatment, the soft palate is swollen for a few days and a bit sore. It is usually not necessary to take anything strongerthan simple painkillers. If the uvula is particularly swollen, it may be necessary to sleep propped up for a couple of days as lying flat will be uncomfortable. Very occasionally, the pain from this procedure is quite severe and may need strong painkillers and antibiotics to be prescribed. This treatment is not suitable for snorers who are excessively overweight or have significant sleep apnea. It has a 50% chance of significantly improving snoring and in some cases the snoring is abolished completely. It may be that two or more treatments are necessary. The Pillar Procedure The Pillar Procedure is a minimally invasive, first-line treatment option for mild to moderate palatal sleep apnea and snoring. The procedure places three tiny inserts in the patient s soft palate, causing the palate to stiffen. The stiffening helps to prevent or lessen blockages of the 92

93 airway effectively treating sleep apnea and substantially reducing the severity of snoring in most individuals. Pillar inserts are 18 mm in length and made from a woven soft polyester material that has been used for many years in implantable medical products. The Pillar Procedure is conducted in a single, short, in-office setting using local anesthetic and is completely reversible. Palatoplasty Tonsillectomy This is an operation on the soft palate to reshape it and make it stiffer. It may be needed if the palate is particularly long or bulky or in cases where a somnoplasty has not been effective. It is usually done under a general anesthetic. It can be performed with a laser or other instruments, the effect is the same. In the initial stages, the success rate is very high, usually in excess of 90% (in correctly selected patients). The effects can wear off over time and in the long term success is about 60-70% after 2 years. It is usually painful afterwards for up to two weeks. The possible complications of the procedure are that there may be bleeding, infection, the throatmay become very sensitive, and food and drink can escape into the back of the nose. These complications are usually not severe and tend to get better with time. If the tonsils are enlarged, they will need to be removed at the same time. The tonsils are part of the immune system. They sit in the back of the throat either side of the uvula. Their job is to collect bacteria as they are breathed in; this allows the white blood cells to recognize them and to create special immune proteins to fight infection. After early childhood most of the common bacteria have already been encountered so the white blood cells know how to recognize them. There are also other tissues that have the same function as the tonsils. This means that if the tonsils are causing trouble they can 93

94 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 safely be removed. If the tonsils are large they cause blockage of the back of the throat. This leads to turbulent airflow and vibration of the tonsils and palate causing a snoring noise. If the blockage is very severe breathing may stop altogether for short periods of time during sleep. This is known as sleep apnea. The tonsils are removed through the mouth. The blood vessels are sealed as the tissue is removed. Two little pockets are left behind where the tonsils used to sit; during the healing process they contain white debris. The main risk of this operation is bleeding. In a recent nationwide study it was found that 0.5% of people had significant bleeding after tonsillectomy. If there is a lot of bleeding another operation may be needed to sort it out. There is usually a lot of pain afterwards which lasts for days. You will be given a combination of painkillers and sometimes antibiotics to treat this. Adenoidectomy The adenoids are at the back of the nose; they are part of the immune system and are made of the same tissue as the tonsils. They also perform the same function as the tonsils. If the adenoids are enlarged they can block the nose and lead to a snoring noise. It used to be thought that only children suffered with enlarged adenoids. However, now we are able to look at the back of the nose easily with the nasendoscope, we have found that many adults also have enlarged adenoids. The adenoids are removed through the mouth. Using a mirror the adenoids are visualized and with a special diathermy tool the adenoids are removed. The back of the nose/throat tends to be sore for a few days but is not usually very painful. The main risk of the operation is bleeding, this is rarely severe. 94

95 Turbinate reduction The turbinates are fleshy swellings inside the nose. Their purpose is to warm and moisten the air as you breathe in through the nose. When they become enlarged they can block the airway and cause nasal congestion. Sometimes they are enlarged due to allergy which can be treated with medication. When the turbinates get very large it can be difficult to use the medication and something needs to be done to make them smaller. The methods used to do this vary from local anesthetic procedures to complete removal. Septoplasty This is an operation to straighten the partition between the two nostrils (the septum). In many people this is bent and this causes obstruction to breathing through the nose. This has 2 effects; one is that the airflow though the nose becomes more turbulent and the second is it makes it more likely that you will have to breathe through your mouth. This can lead to vibrations in the nose and throat and therefore cause a snoring noise. The operation is done through the nostrils so there is no scarring on the outside. The bent bits are either removed or put into the correct position in the middle of the nose. The skin covering is then stitched back into place with dissolving stitches. The operation is not usually very painful afterwards. The possible complications of the procedure are bleeding, change in shape of the nose and septal perforation (a hole in the partition). The success rate is very good for relieving blocked nose 90+% but not so good for relieving snoring, 50-60%. Having the septum straightened may make it easier to use other snoring treatments such as a Jaw positioning device or CPAP. This means that even though the operation may not cure the problem it may still be worthwhile. 95

96 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 Sinus surgery The sinuses are air chambers either side of the nose and between the eyes. There are four pairs of sinuses the frontal, maxillary, ethmoid and sphenoid. The lining is designed to produce mucus which helps to keep the nose and throat healthy and moist. If the drainage channels of the sinuses become blocked the mucus can build up and become infected. This leads to congestion of the nose and in some cases increasing blockage and mucus production. Mostly this only happens briefly, for example with a cold. If the symptoms continue for many weeks it may be due to chronic sinusitis. Sinusitis is one of the many causes of snoring. In some patients there are nasal polyps as well as sinusitis. In the first instance it is usual to try treatment with medications such as nose drops and antibiotics. If this is not successful an operation may be required. When the patient is anaesthetized the nose is examined with an operating telescope. The areas of blockage are then carefully removed using micro instruments. If there are polyps these are removed at the same time. It is not usually a very painful operation. The possible complications are bleeding, infection, bruising around the eye and CSF leak. Serious complications are very rare as a result of this surgery. Jaw positioning device This is a splint that is worn in the mouthat night to hold the lower jaw forward. This has the effect of pulling the back of the tongue further away from the back of the throat. In a lot of people with loud snoring, the vibration of the tongue against the throat is what makes the noise. This is commonly more of a problem in people who are overweight. There are a number of different types of splint available. With the cheaper versions you mould the splint yourself and for some people this is all they need. For other people the splint works very well but is not comfortable, and in 96

97 these cases a custom fitted splint is usually recommended. These vary in price and may need to be fitted by a dentist. Sometimes the splint is used while the patient looses weight and when the desired weight is achieved, the splint is no longer needed. CPAP This is a machine that blows pressurized air into the nose and or mouth through a mask which is worn strapped to the face. This holds the soft parts of the airway apart and stops the vibration that causes the snoring noise. It is also a very effective treatment for sleep apnea and this is usually why it is recommended. The downside of the treatment is that it has to be used every night to be effective. For people with severe symptoms, the treatment makes them feel so much better that they are prepared to put up with the inconvenience. In some patients with a blocked nose, using the CPAP is very uncomfortable due to dryness of the mouth. They may need surgery on the nose to make it easier to use the machine Hospital Information 256 beds The Cheongshim International Medical Center is located in the beautiful mountainous countryside of South Korea. 90% of the hospital rooms look over the breathtaking Cheong Pyeong reservoir.

102 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 -Uncontrolled bleeding -Uncontrolled Glaucoma -Patients with underlying diseases such as uncontrolled Diabetes, Hypertension, Renal/Vital organ Failure, HIV infection, under immuno-suppressive treatment Soft contact lenses or toric soft lenses,you should stop wearing them for 3 days before your initial evaluation Hard lenses or rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses, you should stop wearing them for at least 14 days before your initial evaluation => If you wear contact lenses, it is a good idea to stop wearing them before your baseline evaluation andswitch to wearing your glasses full-time. Contact lenses change the shape of your cornea for up to several weeks after you have stopped using them depending on the type of contact lenses you wear. Not leaving your contact lenses out long enough for your cornea to assume its natural shape before surgery can have negative consequences. These consequences may lead to inaccurate measurements and a sub-optimal surgical plan, resulting in poor vision after surgery. These measurements, which determine how much corneal tissue to remove, may need to be repeated at least a week after your initial evaluation and before surgery to make sure they have not changed, especially if you wear RGP or hard lenses. Duration of procedure: 30 minutes Hospitalization :Outpatient Remove eyeshield: Approximately 1 day Stay in Korea: 5~7 days Resume active sports: 4 weeks Stabilizing period: 3-6 months Surgery description LASIK, which stands for Laser In Situ Keratomileusis, is a refractive surgical procedure that corrects refractive errors like myopia (short-sightedness), hyperopia (long-sightedness), astigmatism, and presbyopia. Lasikhas gained tremendous popularity and is currently the most commonly performed refractive procedure because of its high success rate, rapid visual recovery and low risk. LASIK corrects the refractive error of the eye by reshaping the cornea. 102

103 Consisting of 2 stages, the first stage is the creation of a corneal flap. This can be done with a motorizedblade system, called a microkeratome, which can accurately and precisely create a thin corneal flap. A newer method for creating a flap makes use of a laser called the femtosecond laser. This allows the corneal flap to be created without the use of a blade (bladeless surgery). The second stage involves partially lifting the corneal flap and using an extremely precise excimer laser to reshape the cornea tissue underneath the flap. The flap is returned to its original position and the entire surgery is completed in approximately 5 minutes per eye. The whole procedure is essentially painless. Because the treatment is done underneath the flap and the uppermost layer of the cornea is not disturbed, there is little discomfort following the procedure and the visual recovery is fast, which allows patients to return to work within 1-2 days after surgery. Immediately after the procedure, your eye may burn, itch, or feel like there is something in it. You may experience some discomfort, or in some cases, mild painand your doctor may suggest you take a mild pain reliever. Both your eyes may tear or water. Your vision will probably be hazy or blurry. You will instinctively want to rub your eye, but don't! Rubbing your eye can dislodge the flap, requiring further treatment. Post operation Care In addition, you may experience sensitivity to light, glare, starbursts or haloes around lights, or the whites of your eye may look red or bloodshot. These symptoms should improve considerably within the first few days after surgery. Plan on taking a few days off from work until these symptoms subside. If you experience severe pain, or if your vision or other symptoms get worse instead of better, contact your doctor immediately. See your doctor within the first 24 to 48 hours after surgery and at regular intervals after that for at least the first six months. At the first postoperative visit, your doctor will remove the eye shieldput to protect your eye, test your vision, and examine your eye. Your doctor may give you one or more types of eye drops to take at home to help prevent infection and/or inflammation. You may also be advised to use artificial tears to help lubricate the eye. Do not resume wearing a contact lens in the operated eye, even if your vision is blurry. 103

104 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 Wait one to three days following surgery before beginning any non-contact sports, depending on the amount of activity required, how you feel,and your doctor's instructions. To help prevent infection, you may need to wait for up to two weeks after surgery or until your doctor advises you otherwise before using lotions, creams, or make-up around the eye. Your doctor may advise you to continue washing your eyelashes for a period of time after surgery. You should also avoid swimming and using hot tubs or whirlpools for 1-2 months. Strenuous contact sports such as boxing, football, karate, etc. should not be attempted for at least four weeks after surgery. It is important to protect your eyes from anything that might get in them and from being hit or bumped. During the first few months after surgery, your vision may fluctuate. It may take up to three to six months for your vision to stabilize after surgery. Glare, haloes, difficulty driving at night, and other visual symptoms may also persist during this stabilization period. If further correction or enhancement is necessary, you should wait until your eye measurements are consistent for two consecutive visits at least 3 months apart before re-operation.

Coordinator Contact Information Telephone: English hot line: messenger: Is it safe? LASIK is a well-established, world-class method for refractive correction. Complications are rare and will be discussed by your doctor. Additional safety is assured by performing the surgery in a sterile operating theater environment. Does it hurt? There are no sutures or injections and only anesthetic eye drops are required. Typically, you may experience mild irritation for the first 24 hours after surgery. FAQs What is the success rate? Statistically, patients experience a 95% vision correction. How long does it take? LASIK is an outpatient procedure that takes about minutes per eye. Most patients go home without eye gauze, but a transparent eye-shield is provided for maximum safety. The majority of patients can see well within 24 hours, with the full benefits being realized within 1 to 2 weeks. You will need to be in Korea and for 5-7 day. Will I be awake as the procedure is being performed? Yes. Your doctor will ask you to look at a blinking light within the laser during the procedure. This will ensure that the laser treatment will be 109

110 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 centered properly over the center of your vision during the treatment. When can I wear eye makeup after procedure? It is a good idea to buy new mascara after procedure to avoid infection and it is best to wait 1 week before using eye makeup How soon after my procedure can I drive? You can resume driving as soon as you feel comfortable with your new vision. Mostpatients are able to drive on their own within two days following LASIK. When can I exercise after procedure? You may resume exercises as you wish. Don t get sweat in your eyes. Try to keep your hands clean and away from your eyes. Swimming, however, should also be avoided for at least two weeks. 110

112 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 Candidates Pre Operation Care You may want to be tested for cataracts if you suffer from: Difficulties with seeing clearly, such as reading the newspaper or street signs Vision looks foggy or everything seems to have a film over it Colors seem washed out or faded Night vision problems Halos around headlights or headlights seem very bright You find you need frequent changes in your eye glass or contact lends prescription -Patients with the following conditions are considered to be complex or high risk cases and will not qualify for the package: Uncontrolled bleeding Uncontrolled Glaucoma Patients with underlying diseases such as un controlled Diabetes, Hypertension, Renal/Vital organ Failure, HIV infection, under immuno-suppressive treatment Preoperative treatment consists of the application of anti-inflammatory eye drops, which are used once or twice a day for at least several weeks before surgery. Four days before surgery, drops are increased to 4 times daily. After surgery, oral medications (antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medication) are given twice daily, and eye drops are administered 4 times daily, for another 2 weeks. Eye drops are then continued, 1-3 times daily, for 4-6 months after surgery. The protective Elizabethan (cone) collar must be worn by the patient for about 2-3 weeks after surgery. Cataract surgery is recommended only when vision loss interferes with normal activities such as reading or driving, or if the cataract is preventing the treatment of another problem. Surgery description The decision to perform surgery should be based on the patient'sown assessment of functional impairment combined with the results of the eye examination and measurement of visual acuity using the Snellen test. When visual acuity is 20/40 or better, the potential for benefiting from the surgery decreases and the risk relative to potential benefit rises. In general, the better the visual acuity is, the greater is the need for verification of functional disability before performing surgery. Two types of cataract surgery most often performed are equally effective in restoring vision. These are: 112

113 Extracapsular surgery, in which the lens is removed and the back half of the capsule behind the lens (the posterior capsule) remains in the eye Photoemulsification, a type of extracapsular surgery in which the lens is softened with sound waves and removed through a needle. The posterior capsule remains. Intracapsular surgeryis a third, rarely used type of surgery, in which the surgeon removes the entire lens, including the capsule. Usually the lens is replaced by an Intraocular lens, which becomes a permanent part of the eye. If a condition or disease prevents the use of an Intraocular lens, a soft contact lens may be prescribed instead. Cataracts usually develop in both eyes, but surgery should not be done on both eyes until the results of the first eye surgery are known, so that the benefits and risks can be weighed. The indications for cataract surgery in the second eye are the same as for the first eye. The period of postoperative care extends from surgery until the goal of surgery is achieved and the patient has stable, improved vision. If complications arise - such as increased pressure, bleeding or infection in the eye; damage or dislocation of the intraocular lens; or swelling or clouding of the cornea - prompt care is crucial. Optical correction (contact lenses or glasses) usually can be prescribed 6 to 12 weeks after surgery. The timing and frequency of refraction depend on patient needs, astigmatism and consistency of measurement. Today, cataract surgery usually takes less than an hour, thanks to advances in microsurgery and suturing. The procedure is done on an outpatient basis in virtually all instances; the patient arrives in the morning and goes home in the early afternoon. The procedure itself involves a small incision directly into the eye. The clouded lens is removed, a plastic one is inserted and the surgical opening is closed. The surgery requires anesthesiaaround the eye and some patients may receive a mild sedative to help them relax. Although some patients can drive without difficulty after cataract surgery, it's a good idea to have someone else available to do the driving. The patient wears a patch for a day. Some people notice a mild, scratchy irritation, but most report no discomfort. Most patients can resume normal activities within a day to a 113

114 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 week, but strenuousactivity, especially heavy lifting, should be avoided from four to six weeks. Occasionally, improvement in vision occurs almost immediately after cataract surgery, but more often, the improvement occurs gradually over several months. It's important to note that a lens implant does not guarantee perfect vision. In fact, most people will continue to need glasses to correct either distance or near vision. Small Incision Cataract Surgery In a newer surgical method, called small-incision (no-stitch) cataractsurgery, the nucleus is broken up (emulsified) by an ultrasound probe. No-stitch surgery requires only a single, 1/8-inch incision. A small incision means faster healing. Redness and inflammation of the eye disappear in two to three weeks with small-incision surgery, vs. six to eight weeks with extracapsular extraction. A special advantage of small-incision surgery is that it is less likely to cause astigmatism. This is blurred vision that results when tension on the stitches distorts the cornea. Small-incision surgery involves an incision not on the cornea, but on the less sensitive sclera (the white of the eye). Because of its advantages, many eye surgeons have adopted the no-stitch technique. Others feel strongly that extracapsular surgery is just as good. But after the eye heals completely, there is generally little difference between the results from extracapsular and small-incision surgery. A patient may not be a candidate for the no-stitch method, in that advanced cataracts tend to be too hard to emulsify easily. In such cases, extracapsular surgery may be the better choice. In the past, people who underwent cataract surgery had to wear thick "Coke bottle" eyeglasses. Now, immediately after the removal of the cataract, the surgeon implants a plastic lens directly into the space left by the removal of the clouded lens. This intraocular implant helps the cornea focus light onto the retina to give a clear image. There are many different implants on the market and they fall into two general categories, based on their location in the eye: Posterior chamber implants, the more popular type, are placed behind the iris, occupying the exact position of the original lens. There are now 114

115 smaller oval and foldable lenses that can be used with small-incision surgery. Anterior chamber implants are inserted into the fluid-filled space between the iris and the cornea. Some experts estimate that about 88 of every 100 persons receiving IOLs (intraocular lenses) will achieve 20/40 vision or better. (An individual with 20/40 vision can read letters on an eye chart from 20 feet away. While a person with normal 20/20 vision can read the chart from 40 feet away, 20/40 vision is good enough to get a driver's license in most states.) Among those who do not have other eye diseases, about 94 of 100 will achieve 20/40 vision. What are the precautions to be taken after surgery? Post operation Care Use the eye drops and medicines as prescribed Avoid rubbing or squeezing your eye Protection : As advised by your doctor, you may wear the protective eye shield at night for first week. Dark eyeglasses may be worn during the daytime, especially outdoors, to avoid any discomfort that you may have from bright light and also to prevent any injury to eye. Face wash : For the first few days, avoid splashing water directly into the eye. You may use a clean, soft, wet towel to wipe your face. Shaving : Shaving of the beard is permitted after the operation. Bathing : Body bath (below the neck) may be resumed after the first day, but avoid taking a shower or a bath in the bathtub for the first week after surgery. Head bath : One may wash the hair with the head tilted backwards to avoid any water splashing into the eye. Activity : Normal daily activities including walking, reading and watching television may be resumed soon after the operation. However avoid strenuous activities like jogging, lifting weights, swimming, gardening, aerobics, contact sports etc. for 1-2 months. Sex : You can resume your sex life a week or two after the operation after consulting your doctor. Makeup : Avoid eye makeup for 6 weeks. Diet : There are no dietary restrictions and you may take your routine diet. However, the restrictions as per you pre-existing medical problems, if any, are to continue. Avoid constipation by taking high fiber diet and plenty of fluids. 115

116 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 Driving : Avoid driving unless the surgeon permits you. Job : You may get back to your job in 1-4 weeks after surgery depending on your profession. Ask your surgeon about this. Normal symptoms : The following symptoms are normal and are not a cause for alarm. These are slight redness, mild watering, mild irritation, glare and slight drooping of upper eyelid. These will remain to some extent for 6-8 weeks. Alarming symptoms : In case of any pain, injury, decrease in vision or flashes of light in the operated eye, contact your surgeon immediately. How to apply eye drops? Wash hands Tilt your head back and look at the ceiling Gently pull the lower eyelid down until it forms a small pocket, or pouch. Squeeze the bottle or thedropper to release a single drop into the eye. Take care not to touch the eye or eyelid with the nozzle of the bottle. Release the lower lid and close eyelid for 30 seconds. Dab excess with tissue. Special precautions: In order to keep the eyedrops clean: o do not allow the nozzle to touch the eye or anything else o do not allow other people to use your eyedrops o replace the cap of the eyedrops immediately after use o discard the eyedrops four weeks after first opening If you are using more than one kind of eyedrop in the same eye, wait five minutes between drops. If you are using both drops & ointment in the same eye, always use the drops first and wait five minutes before applying the ointment. If you wear contact lenses, you should stop wearing them for the duration of your treatment unless otherwise directed by your doctor.

120 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 Q: What is a cataract? A: A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. Most cataracts are related to aging. Cataracts are very common in older people. By age 80, more than half of all Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. A cataract can occur in either or both eyes. It cannot spread from one eye to the other. Q: What is the lens? A: The lens is a clear part of the eye that helps to focus light, or an image, on the retina. The retina is the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. In a normal eye, light passes through the transparent lens to the retina. Once it reaches the retina, light is changed into nerve signals that are sent to the brain. The lens must be clear for the retina to receive a sharp image. If the lens is cloudy from a cataract, the image you see will be blurred. FAQs Q: How do cataracts develop? A: Age-related cataracts develop in two ways: 1. Clumps of protein reduce the sharpness of the image reaching the retina. The lens consists mostly of water and protein. When the protein clumps up, it clouds the lens and reduces the light that reaches the retina. The clouding may become severe enough to cause blurred vision. Most age-related cataracts develop from protein clumpings. When a cataract is small, the cloudiness affects only a small part of the lens. You may not notice any changes in your vision. Cataracts tend to "grow" slowly, so vision gets worse gradually. Over time, the cloudy area in the lens may get larger, and the cataract may increase in size. Seeing may become more difficult. Your vision may get duller or blurrier. 2. The clear lens slowly changes to a yellowish/brownish color, adding a brownish tint to vision. As the clear lens slowly colors with age, your vision gradually mayacquire a brownish shade. At first, the amount of tinting may be small and may not cause a vision problem. Over time, increased tinting may make it more difficult to read and perform other routine activities. This gradual change in the amount of tinting does not affect the sharpness of the image transmitted to the retina. If you have advanced lens discoloration, you may not be able to 120

121 identify blues and purples. You may be wearing what you believe to be a pair of black socks, only to find out from friends that you are wearing purple socks. Q: Who is at risk for cataract? A: The risk of cataract increases as you get older. Other risk factors for cataract include: 1. Certain diseases (for example, diabetes). 2. Personal behavior (smoking, alcohol use). 3. The environment (prolonged exposure to ultraviolet sunlight). Q: What are the symptoms of a cataract? A: The most common symptoms of a cataract are: Cloudy or blurry vision.colors seem faded.glare. Headlights, lamps, or sunlight may appear too bright.a halo may appear around lights.poor night vision.double vision or multiple images in one eye. (This symptom may clear as the cataract gets larger.)frequent prescription changes in your eyeglasses or contact lenses. These symptoms also can be a sign of other eye problems. If you have any of these symptoms, check with your eye doctor. 121

Breast augmentation can help women who are dissatisfied with the size of their breasts, or who have experienced changes in the appearance of their breasts. Surgery description (Introduction) Breast augmentation is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed today, however you should carefully consider whether breast augmentation is suitable for you before deciding to go ahead. You may ask your surgeon any questions that you may have and he or she will give you guidance and advice to make sure that your choice is fully-informed. <Before Image> <After Image> 124

125 <Before Image> <After Image> <Before Image> <After Image> Incision sites Breast implants for augmentation may be placed via various types of incisions Incision sites Transaxillary - an incision is placed in the armpit and the dissection tunnels medially. This approach allows implants to be placed with no visible scars on the breast and is more likely to consistently achieve symmetry of the inferior implant position. Periareolar - an incision is placed along the areola border. The incision is placed around the inferior half, or the medial half of the 125

126 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 areola's circumference. Silicone gel implants can be difficult to place via this incision due to the length of incision required (~ 5cm) for access. As the scars from this method occur on the edge of the areola, they are comparatively less visible than the other methods. Inframammary - an incision is placed below the breast within the breast fold (infra-mammary fold). This incision is the most common approach and affords maximum access for precise dissection and placement of an implant. This method can leave slightly more visible scars in smaller breasts which don't drape over the IMF. Transumbilical - a technique where an incision is placed in the navel and dissection tunnels superiorly. This approach enables implants to be placed with no visible scars on the breast, but makes appropriate dissection and implant placement more difficult. Trans-umbilical procedures are performed with an endoscope (tiny lighted camera) to assist dissection. This technique is not appropriate for placing silicone gel implants due to potential damage of the implant shell during blunt insertion. -Incisions vary based on the type of implant, degree of enlargement desired, your particular anatomy, and patient-surgeon preference. -Breast augmentation does not correct severely drooping breasts. If you want your breasts to look fuller and to be lifted due to sagging, a breast lift may be required in conjunction with breast augmentation. When assessing the size and placement of the implant, the aim is to augment your breasts in proportion with your body and to maintain a natural look. The size and placement of the implant chosen depends on many factors, such as your current cup size, your desired cup size, breast anatomy, skin elasticity and body type. Types of implants 1. Cohesive gel filled implant Cohesive gel implants are filled with an elastic silicone gel. The gel feels and moves much like natural breast tissue. What distinguishes cohesive implants is that the silicone gel is firmer, essentially a soft solid. If a cohesive implant is cut in half, there is no gross movement of gel, and the implant maintains its shape. If the implant leaks, the gel may remain within the implant shell. 126

127 <FAQ about cohesive gel implant> Q. Are cohesive gel implants safe? A. The cohesive gel filled breast implant is one of the most extensively studied medical devices. Cohesive gel implant has clinically tested during ten years in USA, before approval of FDA. In Korea, KFDA (Korea Food & Drug Administration) has approved cohesive gel for breast implant in The results of studies are-they don't increase possibility of breast cancer-they don't affect on breast feeding-they are not associated with any other diseases. Numerous scientific studies over the years have shown that cohesive gel filled implants are both safe and effective for breast augmentation and reconstruction. Q. What is the surgical method of breast augmentation using cohesive gel implants? A. Since cohesive gel is a firm stable filler, it is difficult to insert through navel or areola. So axillary incision or infra-mammary fold incision will be made for placement of implants. 2. Saline filled implant Saline implants are the most frequently used implants. The shell of the implant is strong silicone, and it is filled with sterile saline solution at the time of surgery. Should these implants ruptured, the body will absorb the saline naturally expelled by the body. Points to inform surgeon -Details about the desired outcome you desire -Concerns about scars -History of all medical conditions and medication you are taking (hypertension, intake of warfarin, etc) -Allergies to medication and food Preparing for surgery Avoid aspirin and blood thinning medication such as brufen for two weeks prior to the surgery to eliminate the chance of post operation bleeding. You should not smoke for 2 weeks prior to the surgery as this may affect your reaction to the anesthetic and prolong the healing process. Post operative care All dressings and bandages are removed on the second or third day following the procedure. Afterwards, you are free to bath and shower as usual. You will be directed by your nurse on the correct procedure and the reasons for breast massage which should be conducted twice a day or as directed by your surgeon. You will also be recommended to wear a special support bra for 2-3 weeks. 127

128 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 Avoid any form of lifting for several weeks after the surgery and avoid any physical contact (direct stimulation) for a few weeks as the breasts will still be sore. You will probably be able to resumeexercise and normal physical activities within a month or two, after the residual soreness has subsided. Women that choose silicone implants should have an annual mammogram to ensure that their implants are not leaking, as silicone leaks out slowly unlike saline which is easier to rupture and will deflate fairly quickly. If there is a leakage or break in the implant, it should be replaced. Complications Since 2, statistics show that a low number of silicone or saline implant recipients have experienced complications. Capsular contracture occurs if the capsule, or shell, around the implant begins to tighten and thicken. This will cause the breast to feel hard and appear unnatural. Preventing this can be best achieved by regular self-massage. Your surgeon will advise you on just how to do this. Should a problem arise, there are a number of ways to correct the issue. Sometimes removal of the capsule is required, or perhaps the implant may need to be replaced, however this is uncommon if you follow your surgeon's directions. If a breast does become infected or deflated, the implant must be removed immediately. You will need to wait several months before repeating the operation. Despite bleeding generally being minimal during the operation, there is a possibility that continual bleeding after surgery may result in a blood clot - which would need to be removed. This is uncommon and it is suggested you remain in Thailand for approximately 2 weeks for your surgeon to monitor your improvement after surgery. Infection is uncommon, but possible. Your surgeon should provide you with antibiotics prior to surgery to eliminate this possibility. A reputable accredited surgeon will perform these procedures to eliminate risk. Detecting breast cancer may be more difficult. Easy Steps We do not have long waiting lists in South Korea for this type of surgery.

Full wound maturation and final results will gradually occur over 6-12 months. Q7 : How do I care for myself after the operation? A7 : Your surgeon will teach you a special breast massage technique and prescribe a support bra for a few months. Q8 : What could go wrong? A8 : Some risks of surgery include bleeding, adverse response to anesthesia, infection, delayed healing, asymmetry, nerve injury, numb areolae and nipples, contractures or raised growth of scar tissue at incision site, contracture around the implant, rippling of skin over some parts of the implant, leakage, and need for revision surgery. Q9 : How do I prepare for surgery? 133

137 During surgery, the surgeon removes excess skin and tightens the remaining skin. The surgeon starts by assessing the required lift and fullness needed to achieve the desired result. This is done by marking a new nipple position. Using a scalpel, the surgeon then makes an incision along the pre-marked lines and separates the skin from the tissues below. The excess breast fat is then removed, the nipple relocated to its new position and finally the new breast shape is reconstructed. The incision is usually made around the nipple and under the surface of the breast, like an upside down T, however a different technique may be used depending on the degree to which your breasts sag. Surgery description Commonly, a breast liftis performed in conjunction with breast reduction to achieve a more youthful breast appearance. <Before Image> <After Image> Advantages Breast reduction is very successful at reducing the weight of very heavy breasts, making it easier to enjoy an active lifestyle and a wider range of clothes which flatter your figure.

This procedure may seem simple, but it is actually one of the most complicated cosmetic surgeries out there, for there are a number of anatomic differences in the upper eyelids. Several methods can be used to create double eyelids; including full-incision, partial incision, and non incision methods. Each method has 145

146 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 it s advantages, but it does largely depend on the patient s anatomy and aesthetic desires. Full incision The full Incision technique is recommended for eyelids with an ample amount of fat, thick skin, and/or severely lowered eyelids. In comparison to the non-incision technique, the full incision method causes prolonged swelling. However, this procedure is the best technique for the thinning and slimming of the eyelid skin. The full-incision method permits the greatest ability to contour and modify the eyelid, according to the shape which you desire. The results from this method, provides a permanent double eyelid in almost all cases. Non incision For the young patients with thin skinned eyelids, double eyelid surgery can be accomplished with no incisions or cutting. Sutures are passed inside the eyelid to create a new crease. This method is relatively simple, and is a worry-free procedure for creating double eyelids in Asian patients. It is also virtually scar free, since there are no incisions involved, and the swelling is very minimal compared to the other techniques. However, not all patients have the favorable physiological adaptability for this procedure. Partial incision The partial incision technique is used to create double eyelids by removing adipose tissue (fat tissue) with a 2 to 3-mm incision. It is performed on those patients with an abundant amount of adipose tissue above their eyes. This procedure is for those who want double eyelids with a simple incision. The level of swelling is similar to that of the non-incision blepharoplasty. Full Incision <Before Image> <After Image> 146

It may also correct a birth defect or injury, or help relieve some breathing problems. Types of Nose Surgery Anesthesia: General or Sedation Location: Hospital, surgical center or office Surgery time: 1-4 hours Rhinoplasty is one of the most common procedures plastic surgeons perform and also one of the most difficult as the surgeon performs it 161

162 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 mainly by feel. Rhinoplasty may be performed in order to increase the patient's ability to breath, improve the nose by reducing or reshaping it and/or, straightening an injured nose. Techniques: There are two main options for the incisions that your plastic surgeon can use: closed rhinoplasty and open rhinoplasty. Closed rhinoplasty involves incision confined to the inside of your nose. Swelling improves soon and recovery is fast. However, your surgeon may have a limited ability to achieve some changes in your nose because of her or his inability to see parts of the inside of the nose. Open rhinoplasty involves a small incision across the columella, between the nostrils, in addition to incisions on the inside of your nose. Open surgery is usually preferred in more complicated cases. Some surgeons prefer the open rhinoplasty because it allows them greater visibility of the nose. Swelling and bruising lasts longer with open rhinoplasty. Either way, if you sleep with your head elevated for the week following your nose surgery, the swelling will be minimized and will subside much faster. When deciding on open vs. closed rhinoplasty, you should follow the advice of your plastic surgeon. The Operation: Nasal surgery can change your nose by recontouring the underlying cartilage and bone. Your surgeon can make your nose larger, shorter, smaller, straighter, or thinner. Most of the incisions for reshaping the nose are made internally and scars will not be visible. How thick or thin your skin is plays a big role in the results of the operation. Thick skin will not "drape out" as well over the new underlying structure as thin skin. But, thick skin will hide small irregularities of the cartilage and bone better than thin skin. The operation normally lasts about 1-2 hours. The surgery will either be performed under local anesthesia with heavy sedation, or under general anesthesia. Common changes made: -Tip of the nose: corrected by adding or excising cartilage at the tip and 162

163 stitches the cartilage together. A low tip of the nose can be raised by adding cartilage to support the tip, removing excess cartilage in the septum, or repositioning the cartilage. -Dorsal bone: the hump of the bridge can be corrected by removing (with a chisel or rasp) excess cartilage and bone, then brings the nasal bones together. -Wide bony portion of nose: corrected by breaking the bones of the nose and -repositioning them inward. -Wide base of the nose: corrected by removing tissue at the base of the nose and the nostrils moved closer together. -Nostrils too wide: corrected by removing small wedges of skin from their base and bringing them closer together. -Angle between nose and lip: corrected by trimming the septum. Before and After Primary Rhinoplasty: <Before Images> <After Images> Send in your pictures and we will make a 3D image of yourself now and what the surgery can do for you. Pre-Operative Care -Avoid your menstruation period if possible, but in an inevitable case, please inform us in advance for the preventative measures for menstrual bleeding. -Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and vitamin E supplements about a week before surgery as they can cause increased bleeding. -Avoid taking certain medications such as over-the-counter Korean herbal medicines or steroid drugs about a week before surgery as they can affect and disturb wound healing. -Stop smoking and drinking a week in advance of surgery. -Schedule the date of surgery considering the time needed for healing. In general, men bleed more and need more time to relieve swelling than women do. -The amount of time it takes for recovery varies greatly according to the type of procedure and its healing process. Decide the right procedure of 163

164 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 nose surgery which you can afford in terms of time and cost. -Fast for 6 hours before the surgery to make the stomach empty in preparation for painless intravenous sedation. -Remove nail polish as fingernails are monitored to check the patient's condition during the operation. -Remove any metallic accessories or ornaments, for they may cause the malfunction of surgical instruments and probable burns. Post-Operative Care It takes one or two hours for nose surgery in general. When the surgery is completed, you will be taken to the recovery room for about an hour and apply an ice pack to the incised area for the reduction of swelling. When you become stable and feel less discomfort, you will be allowed to go to your hotel. Cold compresses or ice packs are helpful to relieve the swelling for the first 3 to 4 days after surgery and then a hot pack is recommendable. The patient may experience minor bleeding for the first 2 days. Just wipe it away, but do not intentionally peel off the dried-up blood scab by force. Clinic visit for follow-up care and return to normal life You will visit the clinic for follow-up care the next day of surgery, and every other day after the surgery for around 3 times. It will be possible to return to normal life 5 to 7 days after surgery, but swelling and bruising will last for around 2 weeks. Most normal activities can be resumed after 2 weeks, but some exercises where you would need to lower your head like swimming should be avoided. If you usually wear glasses, we ask that you wear contact lenses for 3 weeks. Please have a check up with a doctor when you go back to your own country to make sure your nose is healing properly. Post-Operative Scarring In general, scars are invisible as incisions are made inside of the nose. In case of open rhinoplasty, a small V-shaped suture mark is left on the columella but becomes very inconspicuous with the passage of time. Side effects Temporary discomfort, Bruising around the eyes and nose Some bleeding and stuffiness 164

What is rhinoplasty? A1. Rhinoplasty is cosmetic surgery of the nose.it is also known as nasal refinement and a nose job. With rhinoplasty, 'defects' from either birth or trauma can be corrected by infracturing or breaking the bones of the nose and re-setting them in the desired shape, often narrow and straight. A hump may be removed to give a more pleasing, symmetrical look. The cartilages of the nose can be molded and trimmed to create a more compact or pleasing shape.rhinoplasty can soften an otherwise beautiful face by refining one's features. Q2. How old should I be to get my nose fixed? A2. Generally it is best to wait until the cartilage and bone of the nose 168

169 has stopped growing. In many patients this is around the age of 16 but will vary depending on the individual patient. At the other extreme more and more these days patients in their 60 s and even 70 s are undergoing some form of constructive nasal surgery. Q3. Will insurance cover the procedure? A3. Most insurance companies will not cover the costs of purely cosmetic surgical procedures. However if your surgery has a functional element, for example a deviated nasal septum with a blocked nose, then the costs related to this portion of your surgery will often be covered. In many cases this will cover half to two thirds of the overall cost of surgery. If surgery to the external portion of the nose is necessary to correct the nasal airway as well as undergoing septoplasty then the entire cost of the procedure may be covered. Q4. Will I have visible scars? A4. Most of the incisions for rhinoplasty surgery are performed inside the nose and are hidden from view. Patients undergoing external rhinoplasty will have a very fine line across the base of their nose, which is almost invisible and is inconspicuously placed on the underside of the nose across the columella (link to glossary). Q5. Can I wear glasses after surgery? A5. It is preferable to avoid wearing glasses for at least 2-3 weeks following surgery as this may have an impact on the final position of the nasal bones. Q6. Will I be able to blow my nose? A6. Generally nose blowing is avoided on the day of surgery but from the first postoperative day I am usually quite happy for patients to blow their nose gently to clear blood and discharge from the nose. Q7. Will I have packing in my nose? A7. In most cases, packing is not used these days. However on occasion I sandwich the septum between two sheets of teflon to minimize postoperative swelling and to hold the septum in place. This will make the nose feel quite blocked until these are removed 5-7 days after surgery. Q8. How much will the operation cost? A8. The cost of rhinoplasty surgery varies depending on the length of 169

170 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 surgery, which may last from 1-3 hours according to the complexity of the problem. Typical total costs vary between $9-11 in the USA. In Korea you can get a total nose job for $3,-$5, USD. Q8. Am I being vain having this operation? A8. Most people undergoing rhinoplasty surgery do not fit into our preconceived notions of plastic surgical patients. They are neither vainnor obsessed with surgery. They are frequently embarrassed by an obvious nasal deformity and quite rightly wish to have this corrected. Q9. What drugs should I avoid taking before surgery? A9. Any medication that has an anticoagulant effect, e.g. Aspirin or Warfarin, should be avoided. Your surgeon will advise on this before surgery. Note should be made that many herbal medicines have an anticoagulant effect and you should advise your surgeon if you are taking these. Q10. Does it hurt after surgery? A10. Surprisingly rhinoplasty surgery is not generally painful with patients main complaint often being a feeling of blockage and stuffiness for the week after surgery. Associated with this, it is usual to have some minor bleeding in the first few hours after surgery and some continued blood stained discharge from the nose for a week or two. In most cases simple pain relief is all that is required. Q11. What happens if I do not like the result? A11. The results seen in the initial postoperative period can be quite different to thatnoted 6-12 months after surgery. The swelling and bruising (usually minor) will obscure the final result. Studies indicate that even in the most experienced hands 5-10% of patients undergoing rhinoplasty surgery will require revision surgery. You should discuss any concerns that you have with your surgeon postoperatively but remember to be patient for a number of weeks before a final valid assessment can be made. Q12. Do I have stitches? A12. Internally multiple dissolving sutures are placed which do not require removal. If an external rhinoplasty approach has been performed there will be 4 or 5 tiny sutures across the columella, which will require removal 5-6 days postoperatively. 170

During Surgery Treatment time will vary depending on the size of the area and the amount of fat being removed.liposuction may be performed under a local anesthesia which numbs the affected areas, usually combined with intravenous sedation. For more extensive procedures a general anesthesia may be used.during the procedure the surgeon will insert a narrow tube called a cannula through a tiny incision.the cannula is pushed and pulled through the fat layer breaking up the fat cells and suctioning them out.after surgery, you will be required to wear a supportive corset or pressure bandages around the treated areas. Surgery description Traditional liposuction is surgical suctioning of excess fat deposits The tumescent or super-wet technique requires an infusion of saline solution with adrenaline and anesthetic prior to removal of excess fat. Ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty uses ultrasonic energy to liquefy excess fat prior to surgical suctioning After Surgery You will be able to adjust back to your normal lifestyle in 10 to 14 days.

A1: 1. There is the Tumescent technique which is widely used by doctors every where.with the tumescent technique, if the surgeon does not over inject the area with too much Lidocaine solution, this technique is proving best.upon a time they just shoved the hose in there and sucked away.with the tumescent technique, they engorge the tissues with a saline/lidocaine solution and suction the fat cells which are not engorged with the solution.this technique also hinders suctioning out tissues that are not targeted for removal and has less bleeding.however, if a surgeon injects too much of the solution the patient can get Lidocaine toxicity which can cause sickness, complications and sometimes death. Lidocaine toxicity occurs occasionally duringbody sculpturing where a large amount of solution is injected in the body or when the operation may require a long period of anesthesia. 2. The Super-wet technique which is basically like the Tumescent but with not as much solution injected. About the same amount of solution 178

179 isinjected as the amount of fat removed. 3. The Ultra Sonic technique (UAL) High frequency waves excite the water particles (or any fluid containing) and causes them to boil beneath the skin. This liquidated fat is then suctioned out. 4. The Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL or MicroAire Technique)is a newer technique where the cannula eases through the fatty tissue (even fibrous) with less trauma than traditional techniques and with no burn risks as with the UAL technique. This new machine uses a special high-speed "linear reciprocating" suction cannula. With the newer cannula,surgeons are able to perform more effective high-volume liposuction in a shorter time, without trauma, especially in more fibrous areas. Fibrous tissue has always been a problem in the buttocks, saddlebags (upper sides of thighs in women), back and the male breast (gynecomastia).the PAL system moves through these areas faster, with less trauma resulting in less work and strain for the surgeon and less pain and a faster recovery in patients. Q2. Is liposuction permanent? A2. To a certain degree, yes.the fat will return if you overeat and gain weight.the remaining fat cells have an extraordinary ability to expand considerably to compensate for any fat cells removed from liposuction.liposuction, in any application, is not to be used for weight loss.patients have died from suctioning out too much of their body's fluids. Your body needs fat and fluid to function. If you do gain weight you will re-gain the fat stores in your neck and face and the fat cells will compensate and engorge themselves. Q3. What does a typical liposuction consultation entail? A3. Your doctor will discuss your goals with you and he will explain what can be achieved realistically.a surgeon will take your body structure into account and recognize where your fat is needed.which is pretty much everywhere - just not in excess.there is no "one size fits all" technique when it comes to this procedure.each individual is unique. Q4. How is liposuction performed? A4. Small incisions are made and the excess fat is suctioned out through these small incisions.the tumescent technique is used where a saline solution (delivery and tumescent agent), Lidocaine (pain reliever) and epinephrine are injected into the targeted area.this technique's purpose is to engorge the tissues withsolution for a firmer working area and the fat cells (which are softer) are suctioned out.the epinephrine prohibits 179

180 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 bleeding during theoperation and less blood is lost during the procedure. There is a technique which involves ultrasonic waves.these ultrasonic waves excite the tissues water molecules (fat molecules being the target) and literally melt the fat into a liquid for ease of removal by suction.different patient's molecules may react differently. Be cautious of unskilled surgeons handling the equipment for you may get a severe burn. Sutures are sometimes used in the closure of incisions, a bit of surgical tape or Steri-Strips are placed over the incision and a support garment is worn for proper, compact healing. Q5. Where are the incisions made? A5. The incisions are made within the natural folds of the body which are usually near the pubic area, the inner knees several places along the thighs, etc. There are no folds there normally.unnecessary scarring is generally avoided in all techniques.discuss with your doctor his or incision placement of choice and why? Q6. What should I expect post-operatively? A6. You maya little sore but excessive pain is very rare withpain relievers prescribed by your doctor should alleviate any uncomfortable soreness. You will be asked to wear a support garment postoperatively for the first few days and then only at night for afew weeks if there was excessive removal of facial fat. This will insure proper healing in the surrounding tissues for a more compact appearance. Q7. Is it quite painful? Is there much bruising? A7. It takes about a week and a half for most of the swelling to subside. Bruising is minimal with average cases, although some people are prone to bruising more than others.you should take your prescribed pain medication to alleviate any pain or discomfort that you may experience. Q8. When will I be able to return to work? A8. Patients usually return to work within 2 weeks. Although some patients have returned just after 5 days. The swelling is more than likely the main reason people tend to take off work. The bruising, if any, can be camouflaged with cosmetics. Still, you should not bend over or exercise until more than 3 weeks after your surgery. 180

181 Q9. When will I be able to see the results? A9. After the swelling subsides you will begin to notice a difference in the compact appearance of your tissues.ake before and after photos to fully appreciate the results asgradual decrease in swelling will give your mind time to get accustomed to the changes. Q10. What are the risks of liposuction? A10. If the fat becomes necrotic(dead)from lack of blood supply, the fat tends to turn orange-ish clear and drain from the incision.you must have the tissue removed before a major infection develops, possibly causing gangrene. -Patientshave been known to receive actual burns from the ultrasonic technique.fat is actually melted within the body by 'exciting' the fat molecules with high frequency radio waves and is suctioned out. -There may be asymmetry, hyper-pigmentation (permanent dark spots) from the bruising. -Major blood loss, hematoma and infection. Do not think of Liposuction as a way to lose weight. -Another risk of liposuction is pulmonary embolism.an embolus is a blood clot and this blood clot can break free and travel to the lungs resulting in pulmonary embolism.this can put a patient into adult breathing distress and subsequently into cardiac arrest or coma - leading to the patient becoming 'brain dead' shortly thereafter or in a vegetative state from loss of oxygen to the brain.pulmonary embolism can happen within three weeks of the surgery but will most likely show symptoms of shortness of breath and fatigue within the first 72 hours.however, pulmonary embolism can occur suddenly, without warning.most patients with P.E. collapse and begin rapid deterioration after attempting to climb a flight of stairs. -Facial liposuction risks are far less than body liposuction due to the amount of fat that is suctioned and disrupted. 181

Both types of implants can strengthen the features and profile of the face. Each involves placing synthetic materials deep under the subcutaneous tissue and onto the underlying bone. There are several types of facial implants made of different materials. The surgeon will choose an implant based on prior experience and what is best for the patient. Surgery description Cheek and chin implants are distinctive from other cosmetic surgeries in several ways: multiple options; minimal surgical access can often be used to place the implants; and results are often dramatic. Most people are pleased with their decision to have facial contour procedures. Adjusting to a new appearance is a consideration in making a decision. Usually, chin and cheekbone implant surgery is performed through incisions made inside the mouth. In some cases, surgery will be performed through a small incision under the chin. The surgeon will explain which procedure is best. The implants are placed into a pocket or space created under the skin. They may be secured there with small surgical screws or permanent sutures. In a few cases reducing cheekbones or the jawbone may be the best option. This is done by contouring the underlying bone or removing excess skin and subcutaneous tissue. 183

184 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 Chin alterations Cosmetic surgery of the chin enhances a person's profile by creating a proportional balance with other facial features such as the neck, lips, nose and forehead. A receding chin, for example, can make an average nose seem large. A large chin can be reduced with surgery. The surgeon makes an incision inside the mouth and beneath the lower lip and reduces the bone using bone-contouring instruments. Once the incision is closed, special tape may be placed over the chin during the initial healing period. This surgery can be performed alone or in combination with other facial cosmetic surgery, such as rhinoplasty or a facelift. A small chin can be augmented with a variety of implants, which are inserted through an incision beneath the chin or inside the mouth behind the lower lip. A pocket is created at the tip of the chin and an implant is positioned inside it. The oral approach avoids a visible scar. Once the incision is closed, the chin may be supported by tape for several days to decrease swelling and prevent fluid accumulation. Another option is to move a portion of the bone at the tip of the chin forward (a sliding advancement genioplasty). This makes the chin more prominent and can also address any needed vertical changes as well. The surgery is performed through an incision inside the mouth in the area of the lower lip. The bone is cut above the lower border of the chin and below the lower front teeth. The chin is carefully detached, moved forward and stabilized with wires, or plates and screws. Cheek alterations A number of procedures are available to enhance the cheekbone (malar). These procedures are typically performed through small incisions inside the mouth in the upper jaw area. A pocket is created and the implant positioned and secured. Special situations In some cases patients may benefit from a custom implant. Special imaging is used to create a model that is used to fabricate a custom implant for the specific need. 184

185 Points to discuss with surgeon -Details about the outcome you desire -Concerns about scars -History of all medical conditions and medication you are taking(prescription and nonprescription) -Allergies to medication and food Side effect Possible Complications Bleeding and prolonged swelling : Infection : Asymmetry or Over resection : A careful preoperative assessment and a complete bone reshaping instruments can prevent such problems. Injury to facial nerves: The facial nerve to forehead can be injured. The simplest way to avoid facial nerve injury is not to operate along the pathway of the nerve. By approaching to anterior zygoma through intraoral incision and posterior zygoma through preauricular incision, I can avoid the risk of facial nerve injury which pass through middle zygoma When You Return Home Back to normal lifestyle: 10 to 14 days. Strenuous activity: 2 weeks or more. Bruising: 2 to 3 weeks. Must limit exposure to sun for several months.

188 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 Q1: Will I be asleep during surgery? A1: You will be asleep under general anesthesia and unable to feel pain during surgery. Q2: What adjustments do I have to face after surgery? A2: It will hurt to open your mouth so you will be on a soft diet for a few days. Facial expressions will be limited temporarily for the same reason. As your incisions heal, regular food will slowly be allowed under your doctor s supervision and you will be able to smile or frown with less pain. Q3: How many days should I stay near Korea? A3: Allow 7-10 days for your surgery and follow up appointments. FAQs Q4: How long will it take for me to appreciate my new look? A4: Your face will gradually lose its swollen and puffy appearance, and by the end of the second week you will have an idea of your enhanced look. However, wound healing will take about 6-12 months to mature and show the final results. Q5: What are the risks? A5: As with other surgeries, the risks of reduction malarplasty are bleeding, adverse reaction to anesthesia, infection, delayed healing, nerve injury with weakness and numbness, asymmetry, suboptimal aesthetic result, and the need for revision surgery. Q6: How do I prepare for surgery? A6: You need to have realistic expectations about the surgery. To avoid complications and reduce risk factors, you need to stop smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, taking hormonal pills, herbal supplements, and medicines other than those that your doctor allows you to continue, at least two weeks before operation. People with chronic illnesses need surgical clearance from their medical specialist. 188

191 Face lift or Rhytidectomy, is intended to restore a more younger-looking appearance by smoothing out and tightening major wrinkles and sagging skin of the face, neck and jaw line. The muscles of the face and neck are elevated and secured together with the removal of any excess skin. This helps in maintaining the improvement of the contours of the face and neck. The goal of Face Lift is to give you a natural revitalized appearance. Surgery description Magic Lift There is a less invasive procedure available which can lift, contour and suspend the sagging tissues of the face and neck. The Magic Lift procedure can provide quick and relatively bloodless lifting for patients who may need only little to moderate rejuvenation. The Magic Lift is also been called the Feather Lift which uses monofilament, polypropylene threads with cogs or barbs, called also Aptos threads to lift the underlying tissue and contour the face. The results are improved over time as your collagen encapsulates and "bunches" around the threads causing an even further lifting effect. This procedure is considered much less invasive than traditional mid-face, face and brow lifts, requiring less operating room time and less downtime. The Magic Lift is also becoming popular with younger persons wishing for subtle changes or to possibly delay the signs of aging such as facial drooping. <Before Images> <After Images> Points to inform your doctor -Details about the outcome you desire -Concerns about scars -History of all medical conditions and medication you are taking(prescription and nonprescription) -Allergies to medication and food Side effects Temporary bruising, swelling, numbness and tenderness of skin Tightness around face Dry skin 191

A bandage will be wrapped around your face to minimize swelling the first night.the tiny surgical drains placed in the hair behind your ears will be painlessly removed along with your bandages on the following morning. Recovery period Your face and eyelids will be swollen and bruised after surgery. This will be most pronounced the first few days and lasts anywhere from one to six weeks after surgery. Most bruising will disappear within two weeks. It may take months to fully heal. The speed of recovery depends upon the type of skin, age and healing ability of the patient. Most patients can resume everyday activities about two weeks after surgery. Your face may feel numb for a few weeks or even months. This is normal and usually subsides. Scars take longer to fade, but because they are hidden in hairlines, behind the ears and in natural folds, they shouldn't be very noticeable (assuming there are no complications). Your appearance improvesdramatically each day following your surgery. Typically, you will need assistance for the first couple of days, but then you can care for yourself. You probably won't feel comfortable allowing others to see you for at least a week, and you may not want to return to work for another 1 to 2 weeks after that. You may want to allow 4 to 8 weeks before attending any major social engagements. You can shower by the second or third day, but be careful to not rub the incisions. Shampoo your hair daily after your procedure with a mild shampoo. A light cover-up may be applied to the eyelids starting four days after your procedure. All lifting, straining, bending and any vigorous activity is to be avoided until all bruises have faded and such activities do not cause any discomfort. To 192

193 minimize bleeding and swelling, refrain from vigorous exercise for first 2 to 3 weeks. Pain can usually be controlled with pain medication. To prevent complications it is important to: -Keep your head elevated as much as possible to reduce swelling -Apply ice packs to minimize swelling -Do not take aspirin or anti-inflammatory medications -Do not smoke or be exposed to secondary smoke during recovery -Avoid exposure to direct sunlight -Use a sunblock (minimum 15 SPF) to protect your skin Scheduleyour surgery at a time that is convenient for you.

197 Q3 : How long will I be in the operating room A3 : The surgery usually takes 1-2 hours for each area. Q4 : How many days should I stay near Korea A4 : Allot at least days for consultation, surgery and follow-up. Q5 : Will the scars be visible A5 : Forehead lift incision is on the coronal area so the scar will be covered with hair. People with hair loss will have to consider the benefits of forehead lift against having a visible scar across the top of the head. Mid-facelift incision is behind the hairline of the temporal area except for an inch in front of each ear. If a neck left is done simultaneously, a small incision may or may not be made under the chin. Q6 : What activities should I avoid after surgery A6 : Avoid swimming and getting to much sun for about 2 weeks, exercise and lifting loads for 2-3 weeks. Avoid applying hair dye for about 6 weeks. Q7 : What could go wrong A7 : Some risks of surgery include bleeding, adverse response to anesthesia, infection, delayed healing, nerve injury with numbness and weakness, asymmetry, correctable hair loss on the incision site, keloid formation, and need for revision surgery. Q8 : How do I prepare for surgery A8 : To avoid complications and reduce risk factors, your skin must be free from acne and infection. Two weeks before your schedule, you need to stop smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, taking hormonal pills, herbal supplements, and medicines other than those that your doctor allows you to continue. People with chronic illnesses need surgical clearance from their medical specialist. 197

During the laser peel, the patient is placed under local anesthesia and sedative medications, and the patient s eyes are covered to protect them from the laser light. The length of the procedure depends upon the size of thearea the patient wishes to have treated. A partial facial skin resurfacing can take as little as half an hour; a full resurfacing can take up to two hours. Following laser resurfacing, a sterile dressing is applied to the treatment sites for 24 hours. Thepatient then cleans the treated areas two to five times a day with saline or a dilute vinegar solution. An ointment such as 205

206 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 Vaseline, Eucerin or Aquaphor is then applied. This wound care is intended to prevent any scab formation. In general, the areas heal in days, depending on the nature of the condition that was treated. After the procedure, you may experience some swelling and discomfort. Cold packs are usually recommended to reduce the swelling. If a bandage was applied after the surgery, it maybe changed in a few days, but it will be completely removed after approximately one week, at which time an ointment is applied. Some physicians use a tape that retains moisture to bandage the treated area. Because this bandage must remain dry, you will not be able to shower normally until the bandages are removed. If the treated area is not bandaged, you will need to wash your face several times daily. You will need to use caution in caring for the treated area. After each washing, you will need to apply an ointment, such as petroleum jelly, to the treated area. Scabs may form, and last for about 10 days. You must not pick at the scabs. If you experience pain, an over-the-counter pain medication can be taken. Once the areas have healed, makeup may be worn to camouflage the pink to red color that is generally seen after laser skin resurfacing. Green-based make-ups are particularly suitable for this camouflage since they neutralize the red color. Oil-free make-ups are recommended after laser resurfacing. The redness in the laser-treated sites generally fades in two to three months but may take as long as six months to completely disappear. The redness generally persists longer in blondes and redheads. Reasons for Considering Laser Skin Resurfacing: Reduce or remove facial wrinkles, creases, and lines Improve sun-damaged skin Correct pigmentation problems and spots Effectively treat scars from acne Tighten skin that has lost elasticity due to aging <Before Images> <After Images> 206

207 Tell your doctor Tell your doctor about any allergies you have (to foods, drugs, environmental elements). Tell your doctor about all medications, herbal supplements or natural supplements that you are taking (both prescription and non-prescription), including such natural remedies Be sure to tell your doctor if you smoke. Smoking can lead to complications and poor healing. Tell your doctor if you have been exposed to significant amounts of radiation, have a history of unusual or poor scarring, or cold sores like herpes or shingles. Let your doctor know if you have taken Acutane any time during the year and half before the surgery. This medication can affect your skin ability to heal after laser resurfacing. Tell your doctor if you have any serious medical conditions Carefully follow any instructions your doctor gives you regarding eating and drinking, smoking, and vitamins. Avoid aspirin and all medicines that contain aspirin for two weeks prior to the procedure. Tell your doctor if you have had previous facial surgery. Arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure. Possible Complications Milia, which are small white bumps, may appear in the laser-treated areas during healing. These may be removed by gentle cleansing with a washcloth. Hyperpigmentation (increased pigmentation), and more rarely hypopigmentation (decreased skin pigmentation), may result in the laser-treated areas. In general, thehyperpigmented areas may be treated with bleaching cream to speed fading of the pigment. Reappearance of a cold sore may occur, especially after laser skin resurfacing around the mouth. You can prevent this by asking your doctor for an antiviral medication, which you can begin taking before your surgery and continue taking seven to 10 days after laser resurfacing. You can also prevent bacterial infections by taking an antibiotic prior to the surgery and continuing for seven to 10 days afterwards. 207

208 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 You should expect swelling after laser skin resurfacing. Ask your doctor about steroids injected into the muscles, which can lessen this effect. Patients are encouraged to sleep on an extra pillow at night to help reduce the swelling after laser resurfacing. Ice pack application is also helpful in the first hours. Scarring after laser skin resurfacing, although very rare, may occur in laser-treated areas. Cessation of smoking is highly recommended because smoking is known to have harmful effects on the healing process.

Specialties Internal medicine Language Korean, English Doctor's Information Credentials Medical Education Specialty Training International Training & Post-Graduate Courses Work Experience Why receive a Total Health Screening? The purpose of receiving a thorough health screening is to prevent and discover disease in its early stages in order for you to know what kind of treatment you need to prevent the disease from developing. For this reason we recommend that you have a thorough health screening annually. In Korea, we have a one-stop-service program for Total Health Screening. Hospitals in Korea, Japan and Singapore have developed Total Health Screening programs where you can receive all your required examinations in one place in one day without having to go from hospital to hospital. 222

223 In Korea, the Health Screening Packages are developed with regards to the patient s age, gender, health risk factors (Lifestyle habits, Family history etc.) to match the individual s situation. People in their 20s and 30s tend to not pay attention to their health, yet it would be in their best interest to receive a total health screening every 1 or 2 years to discover any abnormalitiesin their early stages. Many people in their 40s to 60s have developed uncomfortable symptoms, yet they do not tend to them due to their busy schedules. This is why Heart disease, Stroke, Liver disease, Lung disease and cancer are main reasons causing death. It is highly recommended that these people receive a health screening every 1 or 2 years. Elderly who are easily exposed to diseases and patients who already have an illness would need to receive a health screening once every 6 months or when the doctor recommends one. If you have any of the following symptoms, please make sure to receive a total health screening. Easily tired and lose weight for no special reason.

233 International Training & Post-Graduate Courses Work Experience The purpose of receiving a thorough health screening is to prevent and discover disease in itsearly stages in order for you to know what kind of treatment you need to prevent the disease from developing. For this reason we recommend that you have a thorough health screening annually. In Korea, we have a one-stop-service program for Total Health Screening. Hospitals in Korea, Japan and Singapore have developed Total Health Screening programs where you can receive all your required examinations in one place in one day without having to go from hospital to hospital. In Korea, the Health Screening Packages are developed with regards to the patient s age, gender, health risk factors (Lifestyle habits, Family history etc.) to match the individual s situation. Why receive a Total Health Screening? People in their 20s and 30s tend to not pay attention to their health, yet it would be in their best interest to receive a total health screening every 1 or 2 years to discover any abnormalitiesin their early stages. Many people in their 40s to 60s have developed uncomfortable symptoms, yet they do not tend to them due to their busy schedules. This is why Heart disease, Stroke, Liver disease, Lung disease and cancer are main reasons causing death. It is highly recommended that these people receive a health screening every 1 or 2 years. Elderly who are easily exposed to diseases and patients who already have an illness would need to receive a health screening once every 6 months or when the doctor recommends one. If you have any of the following symptoms, please make sure to receive a total health screening. Easily tired and lose weight for no special reason.

259 Candidates Dental implants can be placed in patients of any age (with fully developed jawbones), provided that they have a sufficient quantity and quality of bone tissue available. Most healthy individuals that maintain a good oral hygiene program are suitable candidates for dental implants. Circumstances where implants may not be suitable, or situations that have an increased risk of implant failure, include: Heavy smoking this slows down and hinders the healing process. Excessive alcohol intake disrupts healing of the gums. Periodontal gum disease all active gum disease must be treated prior to any implant procedure to ensure the long-term success of any treatment. Periodontal disease is a major cause of bone loss, which would hinder the success of any implant procedure. Immuno-compromised individuals (steroids, auto-immune disease, patients undergoing radiation treatment). Teeth grinders (bruxism) a night-time splint can be given to treat this. Implants are artificial roots which are inserted into the bone to replace the natural roots you have lost. A strong bond is formed between the implants and the bone over several weeks or months. The implants provide a stable foundation for crowns, bridges or dentures which are placed over them. An abutment is the interface that connects the new tooth to the implant. Surgery description Due to the extreme stability of the implants, the new teeth are very firm and make eating and chewing feel as natural and comfortable as your original teeth. They can also be made to look very real too. Implants also slow down none loss. Dental implants stages: 1. A missing front tooth. 2. A hole is prepared in the jaw bone in stages. 3. An Implant is fitted and a healing cap inserted. 4. When the Implant has healed, the healing cap is exposed and an abutment inserted. 5. A crown is then fitted to the abutment. 259

260 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 The process of replacing a tooth with an artificial dental implant requires surgery. As with any surgery, your body and days following the procedure. It's important to know what's normal to experience post-op and what might warrant a call to the doc. Swelling Puffy gums and a swollen face are among the side effects your dentist is most likely to mention. The swelling is at its worst within 48 hours, and typically begins to subside after that. A puffy face may be accompanied by a stiff jaw-caused by the swelling. If the puffiness is not relieved by moist gauze or ice packs and gets worse after two days, contact your surgeon. Bruising There's a good chance you'll have purple and yellow bruises on your face and gums post-surgery. Don't be alarmed if the bruising seems to migrate from your face to your neck and shoulders. This is a normal post-op response that occurs when tissues are disturbed during surgery. Side effect Pain You may feel some pain in the area where your implant was placed.the pain may signal a problem if it seems to get worse in the 24 to 48 hours following the procedure. You may need painkillers or it could be the sign of an infection. Infection If you experience escalating pain, coupled with more swelling, a fever that runs over 101 degrees Fahrenheit, bad breath or bad taste emanating from the implant site, call your doctor. Nerve damage You may feel pain or not be able to feel anything on your lip, chin or tongue. Nerve damage occurs when a dentist nicks the nerve with a drill as he's trying to replace a tooth in the lower jaw. The numbness is usually short-lived but sometimes it doesn t go away. Jaw Fracture During a lower tooth implant, the jawbone may bedamaged during surgery. Jaw joint pain, known as TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder) can also be an unwanted result. 260

261 Sinusitis The damage happens when the surgeon accidentally drills through the jawbone and into the sinuses or nasal cavity, resulting in an infection. -Implants are durable and a long lasting solution to missing teeth. Nearly 90% of implants last over 15 years. Advantages of Dental implants -Dental implants are more comfortable to maintain and use than bridges or dentures. The artificial tooth or set of teeth stay firmly in place once the treatment is completed. -Teeth restored on implants look and feel like natural and healthy teeth. It s almost impossible to tell the difference between the natural and the implant-restored tooth without an X-ray. -The process of fitting dental implants doesn t involve drilling the neighboring teeth. -Implants reduce the process of bone shrinkage which happens after the tooth has been lost.

265 Q1: Am I A Candidate For Dental Implants in Korea? A1: If you are generally healthy and have healthy gums and enough bone to hold the tooth implant then you may be a good candidate for dental implants in Thailand.If you do not have enough bone to hold the tooth implant you may have a bone graft first. Contact us if want a dentist from our partner hospital to evaluate whether you are likely to be a candidate for dental implantation in Korea. FAQs Q2: How long do I haveto stay in Korea for a tooth implant procedure? A2: As mentioned above a tooth implant involves two phases. The first phase of inserting the tooth implant into the gum requires approximately 2 visits to the dentist and takes about 1 week. It then takes 4-6months before the tooth implant has settled nicely into the gum. When the tooth implant has settled into gum, you are ready for the second phase, and you thus need to come back to Koreato make the tooth. This requires approximately 3 visits to the dentist and takes about 2-3 weeks. The two phases do not both need to be done in Korea. One of the phases can be done in your home country as long as the dentist inserting the implant and the dentist making the new tooth communicate. We will assistyou with this. Therefore, the length you need to stay in Korea to have dental implantation,depends on whether you are interested in both phases or only the first or second phase. Q3: How safe are dental implants? A3: Dental implants are regarded as safe and are probably the best and most advanced method to restore missing teeth. Before the treatment is carried out, dentists perform various tests to find out patients suitability. Success rate for implants insertion in best clinics is close to 100% and once inserted, they can last for 20 years and more. Q4: Is everyone suitable for implants? A4: Some patients might be rejected an implant treatment because of health reasons. If a patient has significant bone loss, a bone graft treatment might be required before any implants are placed. The Dentist will be able to assess suitability at the time of consultation. Q5: Is the treatment painful? A5: Implanttreatment (insertion) is an operation although not so invasive. Usually it is performed under local anaesthesia so thereis no pain at 265

266 02 한국의료관광주요상품모델소개 the time of the treatment. Some patients might feel pain after the treatment and this is mainly due to having stitches in place.

Dentists canuse 6 implants to restore all teeth in a jaw (using a bridge) so there is no need to have an implant for every single missing tooth in case of serious teeth reconstruction. Q7: How to maintain implants? A7: The false teeth implants are cleaned and maintained in the same way as natural teeth. The Dentist will show you the ways to clean the areas difficult to reach with a toothbrush. 266

Why? Because the veneers or the restoration has its own color matched with the color of your teeth. So when you happened to undergo whitening, then the restoration's color may not be appropriately matched with the whitenedcolor of the teeth. If you have undergone root canal treatment, then ordinary whitening procedure is not enough. Another option ishaving internal tooth whitening or permanent restoration. If your natural teeth color is brown or gray, then don't expect an optimum result. If you happen to have a yellowish tooth, then it can give you the best whitening results. Expectant or nursing mothers are not allowed because of the possible effects of the tooth whitening materials on the baby in the womb or on the milk during lactation. Young children under 12 years old are exempt from this package If you have sensitive teeth, then tooth whitening is not a good procedure to undergo because it greatly increases the level of sensitivity of the teeth. Advantages of Whitening People typically have their teeth whitened to improve their appearance. Whiter teeth are associated with beauty and a healthier lifestyle. When people have a brighter smile, they tend to smile more often and are less self-conscious. In addition, a whiter smile tends to minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles, giving way to a more youthful and energetic appearance. Finally, a whiter smile gives people to whom you are speaking a place to focus on and gives you a friendlier appearance 268

269 Tooth whitening involves using a bleaching gel on the surface of the tooth to change the shade or color. There are two types of tooth bleaching: in-office bleaching and home bleaching. In-office bleaching uses a higher concentrate solution which gives faster results. Many patients complete one session within 30 minutes with only 3 to 4 visits needed throughout the course, which can all be completed in a two week period. Home bleaching is a slightly longer process. Each patient is given the customized bleaching trays and gels, and they can choose to have either daily 2 hour wear or nightly treatment. Surgery description The whole course lasts between 2 to 3 weeks. All bleaching materials are entirely safe for both the teeth and gums. However, one of the more common side effects with this treatment is that the patient may temporarily experience hypersensitivity which can be overcome by discontinuing the daily doses of whitening and resuming the course 1 or 2 days later. Side effects Increased tooth sensitivity A sharp increase in tooth sensitivity is the most common side effect of tooth whitening. This is because the process of tooth whitening involves the usage of very strong chemicals based on peroxides. These chemicals tend to cause dehydration in the teeth. At the same time, the dental pulp gets aggravated. The result is that the teeth start feeling hot and cold which they would not have felt otherwise. 269
