DR. SONG HYUNG MIN

A Challenger for Beauty

Cosmetic surgery is a series of challenge for beauty.
I will imagine with my entire mind,
Believe with all my heart, and
Achieve with all my might.

When you aim for perfection, you discover it’s a moving target. But, I won’t stop seeking it. It’s my challenge.

The plastic surgeon has certain disadvantages compared to the other professions. His works are out in the open where all men can see them. He cannot deny he did it. The voters forget when the politician change the alphabetical names of his failing projects. The trees and ivy may cover the architects’ failures. The lawyers can blame the Judge or the Jury. Unlike the clergyman, the plastic surgeon cannot blame his failures on the devil. This is why I thirst for perfection.
