Facial Procedures for Patients of Asian Descent
Facial plastic surgery is a very personal experience, particularly for patients seeking to retain and enhance their ethnic identity.

At Asian Plastic Surgery, we focus on advanced surgical techniques that were designed with the Asian patient in mind. This allows us to achieve harmony, balance and beauty while preserving your individuality and cultural identity.

A defined, proportionately projected chin is essential for a balanced facial appearance. When the chin is over- or undersized, excessively protruding or receding, or asymmetrical, it may cause the nose, ears or other features to appear disproportionate when they are not.

Genioplasty is often performed in combination with other procedures for comprehensive facial enhancement.

Japanese Plastic Surgery
When we think of Asian plastic surgery, we often think of the major cosmetic surgery hubs in Korea and China. Both countries are famed for their booming beauty industries and medical aesthetics markets, as well as for the trends they originate that rapidly become in-demand with patients worldwide.

Benefits of Asian Eyelid Surgery
Asian eyelid surgery, also known as Asian blepharoplasty or double eyelid surgery, is a popular cosmetic procedure to create a natural-looking crease in a ‘monolid’ or ‘single fold’ eyelid. In the past, this surgery has sometimes been described as a “Westernisation surgery,” but that label is both improper and short-sighted.

What is Cheekbone Augmentation?
Facial appearance is determined by three fundamental components: the skin, the soft tissues, and the underlying skeletal structure. Many cosmetic surgery procedures focus on the first two. A facelift, for example, lifts and tightens the skin and soft tissues to restore a more vibrant and youthful facial aesthetic. These procedures have beautiful results, but there are limitations to what can be achieved by changing the skin and soft tissue alone. For bringing about dramatic facial changes, few techniques can match the power of bone contouring. Reshaping the hard skeleton is one of the most impactful branches of plastic surgery, and it encompasses a number of areas and techniques. One of the most popular bone contouring options here at Asian Plastic Surgery is cheekbone augmentation. Below, we answer some of your most frequently asked questions about this procedure.
