Posted by Editorial Staff in Bizarre On 25th December 2016

Plastic surgery is no stranger in South Korea, as many high-school graduates are gifted the surgical procedure as a congratulatory rite of passage.

Introduction

Double eyelid surgery, which is know as Blepharoplasty is the most common procedure among Korean people. This is why South Koria is named as the capital of plastic surgery surgery in the world.

We often see parent rewarding their children with different things, when they complete graduation but parents of south Korea gift their children plastic surgery as a graduation gift.

#1 As First Impression Is Important

A surgeon explained that because most Koreans don't have double eyelids, this kind of surgery has become highly requested.

"Many Asian people believe that first impression is very important and the most important part of the face is the eyes. So, when they have double eyelid surgery, their eyes become bigger. So, they believe their appearance will me much prettier than before surgery,"

#2 For Offering Good Job They Consider A Good Face

In Korea, where a beautiful face is considered a "weapon" to land jobs or to get ahead in your career, plastic surgery is very important. But more than luxury, it has now become a necessity.

People who do not have any double eyelids, their appearance will look angry when they do not smile.

#3 This Graduation Gift Costs Around 2500$

Korean parents spend around $1,000 to $3,000 for this graduation gift. But this also comes with a desire to help their children be part of the crème of the crop and then boast about it.

#4 It Almost Has Become A Tradition

This comes as no surprise, since it's become a cultural norm for one to get their eyes done, with many opting for the exterior change before entering university. It's almost become traditional for South Korean parents to gift their children with plastic surgery, an act of endearment to congratulate them for finishing high school and moving onto college. Instead of rewarding their children with a typical graduation gift such as a car or a vacation (like many American parents), Korean parents seem to give their kids the gift of "beauty".
