Is Asian Plastic Surgery Really That Different?

The Asian face and body are indeed different in some ways from the European face and body but in other ways are very much the same. Cosmetic surgery operations that work well on the European patient can thus be applied to the patient of Asian descent by a skilled surgeon with an often successful result.

Sometimes, however, there can be surprises. Sometimes, the result appears awkward or unnatural. Sometimes, the result strips away too much ethnic identity. Sometimes, the patient's main objective isn't achieved. Sometimes, there are major complications.

Likewise, while Asian and European patients share many preferences regarding what they consider to be attractive physical traits, these subjective opinions and desires do not always overlap and cannot successfully be imposed from one group onto the other.

Today, the anatomical nuances that distinguish Asian anatomy along with the cosmetic desires more unique or important to the Asian population are better understood.

Observant cosmetic surgeons, many of them practicing in Asia and particularly in South Korea, have learned not only to adapt existing procedures but also design entirely novel and innovative operations better suited to the desires and needs of this emerging group of patients.

The Asian Plastic Surgery Guide presents a concise but complete introduction to those cosmetic plastic surgery operations that are intended solely for the Asian patient and that are substantially different from older operations designed instead for patients of European descent.
