People of Asian ancestry can find excellent plastic surgeons who are familiar and experienced in altering and repairing Asian facial features. Asian surgery is very similar to any other plastic surgery and often results in very successful outcomes. Asian surgery is performed throughout the world as well as in the United States.
Because an Asian’s facial features are very different from European facial features, there are more surgery techniques necessary to achieve suitable results. Most surgeons work hard not to change the patient’s ethnicity and strive to keep existing Asian facial features intact after surgery.
Most surgeons specializing in Asian plastic surgery have had many years of training to give them the tools necessary to accommodate the wishes of their Asian patients. Some have even received advanced training at Asian medical institutions where they have learned how to perform specialized surgical techniques.
Plastic surgeons perform many different procedures on their Asian cosmetic surgery patients. The most common surgeries they perform are on the eyelids and on the nose. The surgeon creates a superior palpebral fold in one eyelid during what is known as a double-eyed procedure. Augmentation rhinoplasty is performed on the nose using an alloplastic implant. Plastic surgeons also perform less invasive procedures on their Asian patients including chemical peeling, dermabrasion and botox injections. Some are even using lazer treatments to treat certain skin conditions such as wrinkling and age spots.
All double eyelid surgery performed on Asians is done with great caution because Asian patients have unique skin conditions which are much different than the skin of Caucasians. Asian skin is more prone to infection and complications so surgical techniques are done very carefully and the patient is watched closely both during and after surgery.
double eyelid surgery is becoming more and more popular because it is no longer only people of European descent who want and can afford to improve their appearance through surgical intervention. More and more Asians living in America and in Europe want to look more “white” and are choosing to have their noses restructured and folds added over their eyes.
Thus with all these surgeries that are be done, it is paramount that prior to having surgery done, enough research on the place of surgery and the doctor in charge has been done. Without prior research, you may end up regretting the decisions you have made with the changes done.
