After Plastic Surgery In South Korea, Chinese Women Detained At Airport

After Plastic Surgery In South Korea, Chinese Women Detained At Airport

But a trio of Chinese women have faced a major headache when trying to prove they were the women in their passport photos after undergoing plastic surgery on their trip.

The incident was said to have happened over the recent Golden Week national holiday in China, where six million Chinese headed overseas.

According the Chinese publication, Shanghaiist, the women were not allowed onto their return flight after security officials couldn't confirm that their faces post the surgery matched with those in their passports.

Jian Hua Hua, a Chinese TV anchor, shared the photo on Weibo of the incident. She joked that even their mothers wouldn't recognize them.




"They look so scary", one Weibo user commented. As many as half of women under the age of 30 in the capital city of Seoul are estimated to have had surgery, according to The Independent.

It was unclear whether the women had returned to their home country on October 9. Some hospitals offer certificates of identity to foreign patients so they can pass identity checks at the border, The New Yorker reported in 2015. Men are believed to make up about 15 per cent of the cosmetic surgery market. They had to be detained and questioned by immigration authorities.

The group, who appear to be in their 20s, went under the knife and emerged with mugs so badly swollen that they looked like completely different people.
