Tika Malory, an Indonesian beauty and fashion content creator on social media underwent a Cosmetic Surgery Makeover in Seoul with Eunogo earlier this year.
After going through the makeover, we interviewed her to find out more about her decision to go for plastic surgery and how the whole process was like for her. If you are interested to find out more about her journey, keep on reading!
Q: Why did you decide to go for plastic surgery?
I decided to go for plastic surgery because I wanted to fix some of the imperfections I had. I always felt like my face was too big and my cheekbones were too high, and so I always had to cover my face/cheeks with my hair, and I didn’t feel confident about myself.
Q: Why Korea?
Korea (Seoul) has been widely regarded as the “capital of plastic surgery”, and the clinics/doctors in Korea have always been known and famous for achieving natural results. I only have one face and I felt like I could only entrust Korean doctors to perform plastic surgery on me. Plastic surgery clinics from Indonesia have also approached me before, but I was skeptical of how the results would turn out.
Q: Why did you choose to utilise a medical concierge and how did Eunogo help in your journey?
I chose to utilise a medical concierge as even though I knew that Korea is the right country for plastic surgery, I didn't know which clinics can be trusted.
When I was still in university, I did attempt to do some research on the various clinic options available, and I also wanted to book a consultation online. However, the entire planning process was too overwhelming for me and I am really glad that Eunogo came into the picture to help me with everything; from the consultation to screening for a good clinic with trusted doctors, to arranging transport and hotel, and to helping with translation at the clinic itself.
Q: Which clinic did you go to and what procedures did you go for?
Firstly, I decided to do plastic surgery at Banobagi as it is one of the best clinics in Seoul. I did facial contouring for my cheeks and jaw area in hopes of achieving a slimmer face as my cheekbones were too high and my jaw structure was imbalanced. I also did an eye correction surgery as my eyes were not symmetrical and I have lost volume on my lower eyelids due to aging. Lastly, I also did Rhinoplasty. My nose was okay other than the fact that it was a little flat, so my doctor recommended me to fix it since I was already going to go under the knife.
All in all, I really loved the final results - everything looked very natural.
Q: How long did your surgery take?
The surgery took around 4 - 4.5 hours in total.
Q: What was your recovery process like?

The photo above shows my recovery from day 3 to day 7 post-surgery. As you can see, I recovered quite fast, probably because my body's metabolism and circulation are good.
Q: How was the post-surgery therapy?
In the photo above, Mrs. Huijeong Choi from Chaum was using a machine to determine which treatment would be the most suitable one for me. Ultimately, I went for the Premium Medical Theraspa which focuses on detoxifying the neck and abdomen areas. Medical Theraspa is a medical-science based spa treatment that differs significantly from that of a normal spa treatment. The program is designed to deliver a balanced body to you by improving the body's metabolism and circulation. With the Theraspa program, you will experience blood and lymph circulation, muscle relaxation, stress relief, detoxification, body slimming, and the strengthening of the immune system.
Combined with cutting edge hydro-treatment facilities and equipment, the spa treatment really made me feel much more relaxed and refreshed post-surgery. My mood was also boosted and the aching I was experiencing disappeared.

Q: What was your family's / friends' reaction?
They told me I looked prettier and many people thought that I was a mixed Indonesian Japanese or Indonesian Korean.
Q: How has your life changed after the surgery?
I am very happy with the results and I have since become more confident of myself! I don’t have to put on as much makeup as before to look better, and I no longer have to be picky of photo angles as my face is a lot more well balanced now.
Q: Any last words for your doctor/people who were there with you in your journey?
I feel really thankful and lucky to have met a group of trustworthy, skilled, and passionate people who all played a significant role throughout my plastic surgery journey. Special thanks to Yujin, Sophia, and Narae from Eunogo, and Christ, Joseph, and Dr. Park Shinki from Banobagi. Thanks to all of you, I now have a smaller face, a higher nose, and brighter eyes. This is a journey I will never forget and I am glad to be able to share my positive experience with others.
The before/after pictures of Tika show an amazing transformation after just a short duration! She looks beautiful and we at Eunogo are glad to hear that she is very satisfied and happy with our service.
