If you’re thinking about heading to South Korea for plastic surgery, you’ll want to think twice otherwise you may not be able to leave the country. Three women from China who went to South Korea to undergo plastic surgery, were not allowed to board their aircraft due to their faces not matching those of their passport photos.

Apparently, South Korea has seen an influx of Chinese tourists coming over for plastic surgery, so this could be potentially become a bigger issue.

Per the Daily Mail,

Three women who had travelled to South Korea to undergo plastic surgery were reportedly stuck at the airport on their return journey because they looked too different from their passport pictures.

The trio, said to be from China, were recovering from their operations, as it appears, as they had swollen faces and bandages around their head. 

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

It’s believed that the three women, who remain unidentified, had taken the advantage of the ‘Golden Week’ and travelled to the neighbouring South Korea to undergo plastic surgery.
