In a strange turn of events, women from China are having trouble getting back home from South Korea after getting huge amounts of plastic surgery.

Hospitals have issued surgery certificates to the patients to reduce their issues at the airport. They’ve also been advised to change their passport photos as soon as possible. [Daily Mail
