Seoul TouchUp was selected by the Korean Tourism Organization, again, to represent Medical Tourism – this time, at the Manila Hotel in the Philippines.

Now, they are representing South Korean medical tourism once again as they are ever expanding their services to plastic surgery enthusiasts around the world. Under the guidance of the Korean Tourism Organization, 200 travel agencies from the Philippines and 5 travel agencies from Korea were present at the Manila Hotel in the Philippines.
As evidenced by medical tourism Korea statistics, the number of medical tourists coming into Korea are continually increasing; from 60,000 in 2009 to 80,000 in 2010. The South Korea Ministry of Health has even set a target for 2015; numbers are expected to be skyrocketing to a total of 300,000 medical tourists. For enthusiasts, going under the knife comes at a hefty price; highly sought after procedures such as Korean rhinoplasty ranges between $3500 to $4380 and Korean breast surgery, specifically breast augmentation can cost anywhere from $10,000 to $15,000.
