Lee Min Ho – Using Plastic Surgery to Improve His Confidence and Popularity
Lee Min Ho plastic surgery was nothing new to the media since it became normal and popular for men in Korea to go under the knife and change their appearance. Plastic operations had become a normal part of Korean culture; even the government is supporting this as a part of medical tourism.
Young actor admitted having plastic surgery, but he never said what those surgeries was, so the big question is what kind of procedures has Lee Min Ho had done?
Who Is Lee Min Ho?
Lee Min Ho was born in June 22, 1987 in Seoul, South Korea. He had a career breakthrough with “Boys Over Flowers” in 2009 and that role won him few awards, including Best New Actor at the 45th Baeksang Arts Awards. Television show “City Hunter” made him worldwide popular and cemented his successful career. His first leading role was in a movie “Gangam Blues” and it was surely a big box office hit. Lee also released two albums “My Everything” and “Song For You” but he stated that those albums were only for his fans.
It is rumored that Lee Min Ho had done surgeries listed below; proving that plastic operation is part of the culture in Korea.
Lee Min Ho managed to get into a spot light with this surgery since everyone spotted a big change on his face. Lee stated that he had done this operation before he became famous, and on his before and after photos change is very visible.
He had a bumpy nose with the much bigger tip and wide bridge, but after rhinoplasty, a procedure used to reshape the nose, Lee’s nose looks great. It does not have bump anymore and it is narrow and with pointy, yet smaller tip. The change is obvious and this operation really improved Lee’s appearance.
Maybe the most popular operation in Korea is eyelid surgery and because of that it did not come as a surprise when rumors about Lee Min Ho started spreading. Even though he denied having this operation, on his before and after photos is clear that his eyes are different. His eyes were dropped, making him look sleepy, and after the surgery Lee’s eyes looked wide open and gave his appearance little bit of a boost.
Maybe Lee Min Ho should thank his plastic surgeon for his good looks since the rumors are spreading that he did more than one operation on his face. The next one on the list is lip surgery, and people are speculating that Lee did it. Before his lips were larger and little bit feminine, but now they are changed, they do not stick out that much and with a masculine shape they compliment Lee Min Ho’s appearance. Min Ho did not want to admit this operation, saying that it was only a rumor.
In addition to lip surgery, it is rumored that Lee Min Ho went under a knife for a chin reduction too. In order to achieve smaller and “V” shaped jaw line surgeon had to cut off a portion of the Lee’s mandible and make his face smaller and dramatically different. The combination of these two surgeries made him a whole different man.
