Korean photographer Ji Yeoh's Beauty photo project shows the bodies and faces of women who have recently undergone plastic surgery. Shown here is the price they had to pay to fit into Korea's physical beauty standards. Plastic surgery has become an integral part of modern Korean culture and is often considered a mandatory step in the process of self-improvement.
(Total 10 photos)
1. Go under the knife, get bruised, scarred and go through general anesthesia several times - this is no longer considered a risk or danger on the path to beauty.
3. All of these women have had multiple surgeries and are already planning more.
4. The photos in this series were taken immediately after operations while the patients were resting.
5. The latest data from the International Society of Plastic Surgery in 2010 confirmed that South Korea is indeed the country with the highest per capita plastic surgery rate.
6. This is a country where men are judged by financial wealth, and women by their external beauty.
7. The media, which has more men, constantly reinforces the image of the ideal woman.
8. As a result, Korea has become a beauty-oriented country, where people are met and escorted by clothes.
9. Often, Korean women are trapped in the "ideal image" created by society.
10. The combination of these several factors has markedly strengthened the plastic surgery industry, creating a new set of standards for women.
