How Much for YOUR Medical Treatment?

The costs of surgery, treatments, other services and medical materials at Dr Kim's clinic are always quoted in US dollars.

Payments are always made in Korean Won cash.

Prices are quoted in US dollars for international standardization. But payment in the equivalent amount of Korean Won can be obtained using any major, international currency.

Patients from a country which does not use US dollars can use your own currency (such as Euro, AU$, CA$, NZ$) and convert it directly to Korean Won in Seoul, NEVER using US dollars.

Patients can take any currency to the Korea Exchange Bank (KEB) below the clinic to get the Korean Won they need for the doctor.

The amount of Won needed will vary slightly from day to day depending on the currency exchange rate.

The bank will accept your currency. If you are not American, there is no need for American money to be involved.

Total cost varies according to:

  1. type of medical materials and devices used (HGH, MegaDerm, HA, MegaFill, inflatable penile prosthesis, maleable prosthesis);
  2. the amount (volume) of material that is used;
  3. number of procedures performed (such as hysterectomy and phalloplasty); and
  4. whether patient or surgeon has chosen general anesthesia (when it is optional).
Prices and payment options for urogenital surgery by Dr Kim Jin Hong

Price quotes are fixed-price, flat-fee packages that include everything medically relevant, such as:

  1. physician's surgical fee or technical fee +
  2. medical materials cost +
  3. nursing and aftercare costs.

Package prices do NOT include any OPTIONS you may choose, all of which are listed below. The costs of options are added to the total.

Pre-operative testing for SURGERY is not included in any prices quoted. The tests cost US$200. Results take at least 24 hours to be received back from the lab. Standard testing includes:

  1. Blood analyses showing negative for all common infectious diseases such as HIV, HBV, HC
  2. Urine analyses
  3. PT (Prothrombine time)
  4. PTT (Partial Thromboplastine Time)
  5. EKG or ECG and possibly a
  6. Chest X-ray

Size enhancement materials cost several times more than the surgical or technical fee of Dr Kim. The cost of size enlargement materials varies. The doctor's fee is fixed and unrelated to how much material you buy.

Dr Kim works with patients to create a customized solution that fits the available budget and comes closest to achieving the persons goals.

You can do that in advance from afar. Some patients prefer to do it face-to-face with Dr Kim in Seoul.

For many procedures and treatments, an evaluation in advance of arrival in Seoul is not needed. But sometimes it is advisable.

For a free long-distance evaluation, Dr Kim needs your basic medical history, photos showing the part of your anatomy under discussion, and digital copies (scans) of medical reports, medical imaging, and psychiatric evaluations (if relevant).

Tell us the procedure(s) you want, type of filler or scaffold you want (if relevant), and the amount of material. The surgeon will then be able to advise whether your plan is suitable and how much it will cost.

Some men want to make their penis much bigger than they can afford.

Some men can afford to make their penis as big as they want but it cannot be achieved in a single trip to Seoul.

Generally speaking about Western men, the maximum amount of MegaFill they can safely accommodate in their penis during one visit to South Korea is 70 ml. Some men can get up to 91 ml. That is an extreme possibility, not a recommendation. Maximum possible CuteGel Ultra injections usually cannot not exceed 60-70 ml.

Price List

These package prices are flat fees that include surgeon's fee & a specified amount of enhancement material (if relevant) and all post-op care.

South Koreans are the world's #1 user of credit cards. But ALL quoted prices are for cash payments ONLY.

Add 50% tax to all prices for payment by credit card.

Currencies exchanged by KEB Hana Bank

Prices quoted here are for cash only.

Credit cards incur a 50% government tax for private clinic medical transactions. If you want these prices, if you want to minimize your taxes — do NOT use a credit card or debit card to pay.

In Seoul, you can withdraw only limited amounts of cash daily using debit cards — usually only US$800. That will NOT be sufficient to get treatment. unless you come 5-6 days early and withdraw money every day. Bring sufficient cash.

An alternative to carrying cash is to bring traveler checks and exchange those at Korea Exchange Bank (KEB Hana Bank), a specialized foreign exchange bank a few floors below the clinic in the same building.

KEB requires universally accepted money instruments.

After your consultation and examination with Dr Kim, there will be a short break time before treatment. During that time, a patient can convert traveler checks or foreign currency at KEB, then bring the Korean Won upstairs to pay for the medical treatment.

In very rare cases, we can accept all or partial payment by wire transfer in advance and the patient can still enjoy the cash prices. If you want to pay by wire transfer, ask us about it.

Blood tests and other pre-operative tests from abroad are legally unacceptable in Korea. Testing in your country before travel can assure you in advance you will not need any special care or a special facility at NMC but all tests will need to be done in Seoul.
