South Korea Holidays

Korea's traditional holidays follow the lunar calendar, so they fall on different days each year. The big ones are family holidays and entail everybody returning to their hometowns en masse, meaning that all forms of transport are absolutely packed.

Seollal (??), on the 1st day of the 1st month in the lunar calendar, is also known as "Korean New Year". Families gather together to eat traditional foods and perform an ancestral service.

Chuseok (??), often dubbed "Korean Thanksgiving", is celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month of the year (usually August-September). Koreans celebrate by eating traditional foods, notably a rice cake called songpyeon (??) and playing folk games.

Wrinkles appear and the skin drops loose below the jaw line along with excess fat usually accumulating in the neck. By doing an Facelift in KR(Korea), that is what your doctor will try to address.

KR facelift - News update:
Abstract  Surgical management of facial hemangiomas, the most common childhood neoplasms and infiltrating facial vascular malformations, has the risk of injury to the facial nerve and remains controversial. The aim of this study was to analyze the use of the commercially available Neurosign 100® Nerve Monitor in those cases of facial vascular anomalies where resection was considered the appropriate treatment. On a prospective basis, six consecutive patients with deep (so-called infiltrating) vascular anomalies of the face (two hemangiomas, three lymphatic malformation, one lymphatico-venous malformation) were enrolled in this study. During surgical preparation, electromyographic (EMG) activity of the muscles innervated by the facial nerve was monitored. The variables collected included the patient’s sex, age at surgery, location of the lesion and depth, prior treatment, diagnostic workup, site of skin incision, operating time, operative and postoperative complications, and reconstructive outcome. All lesions were resected without major bleeding. Postoperatively, all patients showed regular, symmetrical function of the facial nerve. The mean operating time was 136.7 min (range 90 to 240 min). During the preparation using surgical instruments, EMG activity was noted both as a graphic signal showing facial nerve activity and as an acoustic signal. In all patients, the branches of the facial nerve were identified clinically by electrode stimulation at 30 Hz. Postoperatively, all patients had improvement of facial asymmetry and deformity; preoperative pain episodes and functional impairments resolved completely. Intraoperative facial nerve monitoring provides feedback regarding the location, extent, and ongoing functional status of the facial nerve in the surgical management of infiltrating benign lesions such as hemangiomas and vascular malformations. Besides an overall distinct indication for surgery, we recommend its use for prevention of iatrogenic facial nerve injury.

As we become older the gravity, sun exposure and everyday stress leave their marks on our faces. Wrinkles appear between the nose and the mouse, the skin becomes lose and drop below the jaw line and extra fat and skin accumulates around the neck. Facelift cannot stop the aging process but it can "turn back time" by removing extra skin and fat and straitening the muscles.

The ideal candidates for the procedure are patients with skin of the face and neck that started to drop but still has its elasticity.

The operation last from 3-7 hours (it can be longer if additional procedures are done). Some surgeons prefer to work on each side at a time and some do both sides simultaneously. The placement of the cuts and the magnitude of the operation depend on face structure and the correction required. The cut usually starts on the forehead goes in front of the ear and behind the ear lobe, additional cut below the chin is made to repair the neck. The surgeon separates the skin from the fat, removes the extra fat, strengthens the muscles and returns the fat pockets where they use to be. Afterwards he stretches the skin, cuts the extra and closes with sutures. A drainage tube usually left from both sides to draine secretions and blood and the face is bandaged for the first 24 hours.

Every operation has its risks although not common those include, bleeding, infection, damage to facial nerves (usually temporal), face asymmetry and delayed healing. Patients who smoke have higher rates of delayed healing.

There may be pain or uncomfortable felling after the recovery that can be treated with painkillers. A sensation of ants crawling usually disappears after weeks or a month after the surgery. Bandages are removed after a day or two and your face may look swollen. Red or pale with bleeding spots, you must remember that those will disappear after few days or weeks.

You can get out of bed after 24 hours but you should avoid any efforts for at least a week to help the healing process. You should avoid alcohol, hot tubs and saunas for at least a month. Most of the patients feel disappointed at first, their face look and feel strange but after a few weeks the scars will heal and you`ll be able to see the final results. Many patients return to work after 3 weeks. Sometimes you may need to use make up to blur the hemorrhage spots.
