(Scroll down for video) Some people go under the knife repeatedly, on an everlasting quest for perfection.

Plastic surgeons are always looking for new ways to enhance the body while cashing in on people’s wishes to have the perfect body.

Men would rather look at women, who are happy and smiling, over grouchy women. Now, a plastic surgeon came up with a solution to make people appear to be smiling, all day long.

Women in South Korea seem to like the idea of having their face altered so they have a permanent smile on their faces.

The procedure is called “Smile Lipt,” combining the words lip and lift. According to a promotional video released by the Aone Plastic & Aesthetic Surgery center, the goal of the procedure is to create “a pleasant and memorable impression” that is “bright and gentle.”

“Mouth corners play a crucial role in making the impression of a person. If mouth corners are sagging, it’s a sad or angry facial expression,” the video advertisement states.

In an attempt to attract more customers, the company also said that “Western people have longer and higher mouth corners than Korean people.”

Some popular cosmetic procedures in South Korea are done to create big, wide eyes, small noses and a narrow jaw line. Some even undergo “double jaw surgeries” to create a slimmer, V-shaped chin and jaw line.

The new “Smile Lipt ” procedure is relatively popular among people in their twenties and thirties especially those who work with customers on a daily basis.
