Asian Plastic Surgery in the United States

In year 2015, Americans of Asian descent accounted for less than 7% of plastic surgery performed in the United States.

Despite the extremely high educational requirements for practicing medicine in the U.S., most American surgeons simply do not have much in-depth training or hands-on experience with the unique anatomical demands of Asian cosmetic operations.

What has emerged is a sub-specialty known as Asian cosmetic plastic surgery, though its practitioners number too few to merit recognition as a Board-certified discipline.

Many top surgeons are clustered in and around Los Angeles, New York City, and Houston.

American surgeons emphasizing Asian plastic surgery in their practices thus come from a variety of different primary specialties including general plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery, otolaryngology head and neck, and maxillofacial surgery.

Some offer a body-wide range of services, while others provide highly-focused care on only specific body regions.

General cosmetic surgeons may also offer such services, but most provide only what they consider to be a few "routine" or minimally-invasive procedures emphasizing injectables.

So how does a patient go about finding an American specialist? Information about the discipline can be found from links on the right, while a set of guidelines that may be helpful in evaluating a potential surgeon can be found at its own Section.
