A feature report on the booming cosmetic surgery industry in South Korea.

South Korea is one of the world's biggest markets for plastic surgery and it is estimated that 1-in-5 South Korean women has undergone some sort of plastic surgery.

Experts say the huge international success of South Korean pop music and television shows has helped make plastic surgery one of the most successful export areas for the country's medical sector.

In fact, one plastic surgery company says about 40-percent of its customers are from overseas - mostly from China, Japan and the former Soviet Union.
