Chinese Women Unrecognizable After Plastic Surgery; Detained At South Korea Immigration

The women can be seen clutching their passports in the image, reportedly clicked at a South Korea airport during China's annual Golden Week holiday.

In her post - which has now been removed - Ms Jian said the women were unable to leave South Korea due to identification difficulties. In the caption, Jian wrote about a "plastic surgery army" spotted at a South Korean airport departure terminal, hk01.com reported. 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.

The three Chinese women are now stuck in the South Korean airport because the security check refused to grant them the permission to leave the country. "Even your mother won't recognise you".

They were said to look nothing like their passport photos and had been stopped from flying home, according to reports on Chinese-language media.


However, some netizens reflected that going under the knife is not a crime.

The post also claimed that they were among the throngs of Chinese tourists who had gone to South Korea for plastic surgery during the eight-day national holiday.

Plastic surgery clinics are required to provide documentation to the patient which provide proof of identity and the kinds of surgery that was performed.

Unfortunately for these ladies, guess their doctors didn't get the memo.
