A Miss Korea contestant in the 1980s underwent breast augmentation in 2008 in the hope that it would boost her chances of finding a husband.

Park, 50, who is divorced and gave only her surname, ended up going to the same doctor as Kim.

Due to a series of post-surgical infections, her right breast ended up half the size of the left.

"I regret it so much that I tried to kill myself twice," she said. "Plastic surgeries are like an addiction."

​"If you do the eyes, you want to do the nose. And doctors don't say 'you are beautiful enough', but get people to do more."
