Facial Ethnic Plastic Surgery Procedures

Published on: August 8, 2017

It is possible to embrace your ethnic heritage, but still desire a different aesthetic appearance to your face. Many people wish to make small changes to the shape of their eyes, nose or lips to achieve a desired look. There has been a growth in the plastic surgery field for aesthetic changes to typical ethnic features. These are some of the most common:

  • Asian eyelid surgery. Many people of Asian descent have eyes without a visible fold. Asian eyelid surgery creates an eyelid fold or double eyelid that makes the eyes appear larger and more open. For some, it can reduce the tired appearance that can occur and enhance their facial appearance.
  • Ethnic rhinoplasty. Another distinct ethnic feature is the nose. Whether someone has a larger, more pronounced nose or a small, flat nose, many people would prefer a different shape. Ethnic rhinoplasty can be used to transform the size and shape of a nose, both for appearance and function. Rhinoplasty is one of the most common procedures requested in plastic surgery for a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds.
  • Ethnic lip surgery. Lips come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some ethnic groups are born with thin lips, others with full, pronounced lips. Some women wish they had a “Cupid’s Bow” instead of a straight top lip. Ethnic lip surgery and some injectable procedures can change the size, shape and fullness of lips for an enhanced appearance.

Ethnic plastic surgeries are like any other cosmetic procedure. It is not a matter of wanting to change your heritage, but to give yourself self-confidence and an appearance that you love when you look in the mirror.
