1. BANOBAGI Plastic & Aesthetic Clinic

Where is it

banobagi building location


Located in the heart of Gangnam, Banobagi is a five-minute walk from Yeoksam station. If you’re one of those who can’t get your bearings right, Banobagi offers pick up services from the airport right to the doorstep of the clinic, making everything so much easier.

Cosy Environment

Greeting patients with its white exterior, this clinic that’s housed within a five-storey building has won awards for its quality and service. Known to be one of the few clinics in Korea that has invested in upmarket emergency equipment, its reputation is going strong with doctors that are specialists in their respective fields. Enquires on surgical procedures are known to be replied promptly so there’s no need to fret about being left hanging. With their in-house translators, tourists can put their mind at ease as they will be there every step of the way from pre to post surgery.

Surgery waiting area


Upon entering the building, the cosy lounge area would help to instil a relaxing vibe as you flip through their before-and-after books catalogued according to the different procedures. Expect the same cosy and relaxing vibe as you move to their consultation and pre-surgery waiting rooms, taking away your pre-surgery jitters.

Post Surgery Care

Bio Photon Therapy


Placing safety and clients’ care as their priority, Banobagi has state-of-the-art equipment to help in after-surgery care. The clinic has a swelling care procedure, Bio Photon Therapy, to help patients in their recovery. Imagine it as a sauna session, just that you are lying down in a machine! It helps to speed up blood circulation, regeneration and shorten recovery time. For patients who undergo liposuction, there is also an after-surgery figure care programme offered. Patients can take up the special fitness classes offered in this programme to help in body adjustment.

Banobagi guesthouse


Guesthouse 2


One of the things that Singaporeans adore this clinic for is the Banobagi’s guesthouse situated right behind the clinic. So if you are worried about outpatient care, this is the place for you. Even though it is an all-female guesthouse, patients are allowed to bring one friend along to stay with them, making everything even more cozy. This homely interior has many facilities and also a convenient store right behind the building to satisfy your late night hunger pangs. Healthy bento meals will also be delivered during lunch time every day, keeping your post-surgery diet in check. As Banobagi believes in delivering top notch service in surgery and customer service, their doctors will also check up on their patients after the surgery to be kept in the loop of their recovery.
