When it comes to passport control, it's usually alright.

The plastic surgery they received left them unrecognisable from their passport photos, which resulted in their detention at an airport in South Korea.

In her post - which has now been removed - Ms Jian said the women were unable to leave South Korea due to identification difficulties.

Chinese TV personality Jian HuaHua spotted the women in an airport waiting area and posted their image to Weibo, a popular Chinese social media site.

The unidentified women flew last week to the nip-and-tuck top destination during China's Golden Week, a national holiday in which residents are encouraged to take paid vacations, Asia Wire reported.

Desperate to get home as soon as possible, those three went to the airport while still having the bandages on their swollen faces.

More than 500,000 Chinese residents a year are said to make trips overseas for medical tourism.

Going under the knife didn't go down really well for three Chinese women - in fact, it led to a nightmarish experience. It is not known what proportion is for plastic surgery. This isn't the first Golden Week travel problem, either; a year ago, 100 Chinese tourists spent up to five days of their holiday stranded in an airport, having been denied entry to South Korea's Jeju Island.
