Asian faces have several anatomic differences comparing to Caucasians’ with individual traits and features that have to be considered when it comes to facial reshaping. The differences have multiple aspects including the quality and elasticity of the skin, as well variations in the underlying fat tissue, muscle and shape of the bones.
As more patients of Asian background seek reshaping of their facial aspects, beauty ideals and techniques have to be individualized in order to avoid westernization of their features. As a matter of fact most Asian patients desire enhancement of their facial appearance without dramatic transformations that would erase their ethnic heritage.
A series of both surgical and non-surgical treatments can therefore be considered as well as customized to the individual features of each patient whilst the aesthetic outcomes can be very impressive.
