As a Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon, I get a lot of questions from clients and colleagues about the safest procedures on the market today. The march of medical technology is swift, and a successful cosmetic surgeon must keep up daily with the latest literature and news. This principle is what led me to introduce one of the first Ulthera® centers to my Los Angeles office, and to continue offering personal service on this and countless other cutting-edge procedures.
On occasion I am also asked to write about topics of interest for major publications. Recently I wrote a broad-ranging discussion of the latest trends in ethnic cosmetic surgery for a book called Otolaryngology and Facial Plastic Surgery. The chapter was cross-published on eMedicine.com, a widely read online resource that attracts over 100,000 physicians each month. In it, I discuss how ethnic Asian populations pose specific demands and challenges in the field of facial cosmetic surgery.
The article focuses on three common kinds of facial plastic surgery – eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), nasal augmentation (rhinoplasty), and laser-based skin surgery. These procedures are popular within Asian communities because they address a general “flatness” in the facial features and skin. Each can be done subtly and tastefully so that the face comes into better harmony without looking “fake” or operated on. And each can be done safely, with minimal recovery and no scarring.
If you are looking for expert ethnic plastic surgery but want to maintain your own one-of-a-kind personality and freedom of expression, it is important to speak with a facial cosmetic surgeon who understands where ethnicity and beauty intersect. Whether you are looking to lose a double eyelid, augment your bridge, or simply erase the ravages of time, the best place to begin any surgical search is with a call to a top facial plastic surgeon.
