So-Young International, China’s largest online marketplace for cosmetic surgery services, is venturing offline, opening a “shared clinic” earlier this month where patients and doctors who find each other online can book an operating room, come in for the scheduled time slot, and go under the knife.

At a press conference Friday, the Nasdaq-listed company — along with BeauCare Clinics, a Chinese chain of beauty centers — jointly announced the opening of a shared medical cosmetology clinic in Beijing. The launch marks the first time the country’s long-promoted concept of “shared health care” has entered the field of cosmetic surgery.
