Ask A North Korean

Ask a North Korean: Is it possible to get plastic surgery in North Korea?

Double eyelid surgery and cosmetic tattoos are popular, but such illegal medical procedures carry serious risks

“Ask a North Korean” is an NK News series featuring interviews with and columns by North Korean defectors, most of whom left the DPRK within the last few years.

Readers may submit their questions for defectors by emailing [email protected] and including their first name and city of residence.
