Chinese women plastic surgery

Your passport photo is taken - and then you put on weight, change your hairstyle or have the temerity to age.

Three women flew to South Korea from China to get a plastic surgery, after the procedure was done, they wanted to go back home, but they weren't allowed.

The women were left stranded at an unnamed airport in the country after surgery had changed their faces so radically that the authorities were unable to confirm their identity.

In pictures of the three women shared online, they were seen sitting at a South Korea airport, with their passports in hand, and their faces appeared to be swollen, wrapped up in bandages.

The picture is said to have been taken over the recent Golden Week national holiday in China, an eight-day period when many Chinese - said to be six million this year - travel overseas.

According to Jian, the trio looked so different from their passport photos that airport security barred them from boarding the flight.

In South Korea, plastic surgery has ben extremely popular lately.

Asia Wire reported the three women flew to South Korea during China's Golden Week, a national holiday where Chinese people are encouraged to take vacations.

Almost 500,000 Chinese residents make trips to South Korea for medical purposes in a year. The people of the country believe that getting the surgery done leads to better employment prospects and a happier life, says

South Korea is being recognized as the plastic surgery capital of the world and is regarded as "natural and harmless".
