Report Overview

The Korean medical aesthetics market size was valued at over USD 1.6 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.3% from 2020 to 2027. The market is majorly driven by the increasing adoption of minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures coupled with growth in medical tourism. Moreover, the high influence of social media and the rise in awareness regarding K-beauty products is aiding in the growth of the market for medical aesthetics.

The trend of combination treatments in aesthetics is also growing. Aesthetics is now being combined with lasers and radiofrequency to get enhanced and sustained results. Aesthetic procedures are popular in Korea as appearance and beauty are institutionalized in the culture of the country.

Korean medical aesthetics market

Korea has witnessed the highest number of cosmetic procedures in the world, hence it is known as the plastic surgery capital of the world. The number of both non-invasive and non-invasive surgeries performed is high in Korea. Initially, Korea was known to have more facial surgeries. However, other procedures such as body contouring, lifting, Botox, and fillers are gaining popularity owing to the easy access to non-invasive surgeries.

Also, the entry barrier for performing these surgeries is low as anyone with a medical license is permitted to perform these surgeries. Korean men are also undergoing an aesthetic procedure such as anti-aging, jaw surgeries, facial contouring, and blepharoplasty.

Procedure Type Insights

On the basis of procedure type, the medical aesthetics market is broadly segmented into invasive and noninvasive. The invasive procedures are further segmented into breast augmentation, liposuction, nose reshaping, tummy tuck, eyelid surgery, and others.
