The Extreme Difference Between Western And Asian Plastic Surgery

October 06, 2015 1 min read

Plastic surgery may be widely associated with the U.S., as the need to exemplify beauty standards seems to be ever increasing among Americans. But Asia has been a hotspot for going under the knife even before Hollywood became obsessed. In fact, South Korea is the plastic surgery capital of the world. However, there is a stark difference between what Westerners seek when they walk into a doctor's office and what Asian patients wish to have 'fixed'. Asian patients request V-Line Jaw Reductions which sculpts a slenderized jaw and a sharp chin. asian plastic surgery Whereas Western patients (particularly Caucasians) are born with the opposite bone structure, and often want to widen their jaw using augmentation procedures. jaw augmentation procedure While Asian beauty standards call for a more reduced, less aggressive facial and physical presence, Western culture dictates that in most cases 'bigger is better'. For example, it is extremely rare to find Asian women getting breast implants or butt lifts. They don't favour bulkier jaws or high cheekbones, and often focus primarily on making facial changes. facial reconstruction western beauty standards rhinoplasty eye widening caucasian culture surgeries In Korea, the most popular cosmetic procedures apart from the V-Line Jaw Reduction include Rhinoplasty, utilized to reduce the size of the nose. There is also Teeth Capping, which applies veneers over discoloured or damaged teeth. Finally, Epicanthoplasty which rounds and widens the look of the eyes. What are your thoughts?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
