Plastic surgery causes too much trouble for Chinese women at airports

But a trio of Chinese women have faced a major headache when trying to prove they were the women in their passport photos after undergoing plastic surgery on their trip.

The unidentified women were photographed clutching their passports with heavily swollen faces at an unnamed airport in South Korea.

Three women reportedly flew to South Korea over the Golden Week holiday, from China to get under the knife for better facial features, however when they got done with the procedure and wanted to go back home, the airport security detained them.

The three women from China were unable to return home when they no longer looked like their passport pics.

According to reports, the photo was first posted on Weibo by Chinese TV presenter Jian Huahua on Sunday and has since been taken down. Jian even joked that their mothers wouldn't recognize them.

The photo racked up 51,000 likes and 23,000 shares on social media, according to the report.

It is unknown whether the women have since returned to China. Almost half of women in Seoul under the age of 30 are estimated to use plastic surgeries to enhance their facial features.

The country is also known as the plastic surgery capital of the world. The proportion for plastic surgery is not yet known, however for Chinese women South Korea has become a top plastic surgery destination.

In South Korea, plastic surgery has ben extremely popular lately.

"I didn't question what was going on because I have had the same situation when landing in NYC at JFK when I was questioned for one hour then once I told the immigration officer to look me up they all were very apologetic just saying that they were doing their job", he added.
