The plastic surgery clinic will soon open in the airport for travelers

South Korea's Incheon International Airport announces plans to open a plastic surgery clinic for passengers interested in having an operation done, whenever they need to have one during their travels.

The move was motivated by South Korea's growing profits from cosmetic surgeries. While the airport wants to safely conduct these surgeries, many doctors and medical boards, such as the Korean Association of Plastic Surgeons, have brought up the danger of those who have recently had a surgery to go on flights. This makes the clinic a contested topic and a difficult one for doctors or surgeons to support. To appease the community of surgeons and help protect patients, the airport may have to place up clear regulations about who can receive treatment at their clinic and how long they have to wait before they can go on a flight.
