Korean Plastic Surgery
Asian faces have a distinct bone structure and muscle mass compared to western faces. This makes Asian cosmetic and facial treatments, including cosmetic surgery a different ball game for medical professionals.
Most surgeons around the world can work on western faces, but there are very few plastic surgeons that can operate on and treat Asian faces. One such highly-qualified medical practitioner is Dr. Christopher C. Chang, MD.
Dr. Chang has extensive experience in performing Asian cosmetic and medical facial procedures. From simple brow lifts to extensive plastic surgery, he can help you with anything you need.

Performing Asian Cosmetic Procedures
South Korea has been dubbed the ‘Cosmetic Surgery Capital of the World’, a reputation it deserves, given how 24% of the total number of plastic surgeries in the world are performed there. It is also this very reason that many new, cutting-edge techniques in the field of plastic surgery, originate from Korea.
If performed by an inexperienced surgeon, Korean plastic surgery can produce ungainly results in Asian faces. Dr. Chang has spent a large portion of his extensive career specializing in Korean plastic surgery. You can trust him to provide you with the superior-quality treatment you deserve.
During the consultation, remember to disclose your expectations to the doctor. This is extremely important as all the surgeries performed by Dr. Chang are highly couture and are personalized to suit your requirements, lifestyle and medical history.
The consultation is also a good time to understand how the surgery works and set a realistic goal in mind. Korean plastic surgery will certainly help people of Asian descent look younger and more beautiful, while retaining their ethnicity. However, just as with any other cosmetic surgery, you cannot expect drastic or impossible changes.
During the consultation, be sure to inform the doctor of any allergies or problems that you may have. This will help him plan the type of anesthesia and medication to prescribe.
The Pre-Surgery Preparation
Considering that this is a major operation, you will need to get admitted to the clinic for treatment. Have someone drop you to our clinic and arrange for a pick-up post-surgery.
The doctor will provide you a list of things that you’ll need to do before surgery. Be sure to follow these instructions carefully.
Any Korean cosmetic surgery performed on any part of the body qualifies to be called as a Korean plastic surgery. Before we understand the different types of plastic surgeries that can be performed, we’ll need to first consider the approach to Asian plastic surgery.
Asian faces are different from western faces in a few distinct ways. Asians have:
- A smaller and sharper nose
- Smaller ears
- Prominent cheekbones and jaws
- Elongated, but slightly rounded faces
- Close-set eyes
Therefore, any surgeon performing the Korean plastic surgery in Washington D.C. will keep these points in mind while performing the surgery.
Now, let’s look at some of the most common types of Korean plastic surgeries and how they are performed for Asian faces:
The nose is the most prominent part of a person’s face and a wrongly aligned nose can throw-off the balance on a person’s face. A nose job, also known as a rhinoplasty, is a method that is used to make the face look more shapely and beautiful.
In Asian cosmetic procedures, the rhinoplasty is designed to make the nose more suitable for the Asian face. From reducing the size of a bulbous nose to straightening a hooked nose, a rhinoplasty is a great way to correct congenital nasal cosmetic deformities.
In most Asian faces, the nose has no bridge, making it look fat and bulbous. The Asian rhinoplasty can help rectify this. The procedure can also be used to rectify medical nasal conditions such as a deviated septum.
During the surgery, Dr. Chang will make small incisions on the nose, remove the cartilage and bone flap, reshape them and stitch-up the incisions.See more about Dr. Chang’s Asian Rhinoplasty here.
Upper and lower eyelid surgeries are designed to rid the eyes of crow’s feet, eye bags and droopy folds of skin. Dr. Chang will make an incision following the natural lines of your eyes, remove the sagging muscles and tissues, tighten the skin and stitch-up the incision.
Asian eyes are single-lidded, meaning, no creases form when the eyes open and close. This detracts from the beauty of the face. An Asian eyelid surgery can be performed to add extra creases to the eyelids, contouring them and making them more beautiful.See more about Dr. Chang’s Asian Eyelid Surgery here.
If the Asian face has a hooded eyelid, then the extra skin can be removed quite easily.
After the surgery, Dr. Chang will provide a customized post-surgical recovery plan to help you recover successfully. Follow the instructions with care for a fast recovery.
Non-Surgical Procedures For The Asian Face
Botox injections and Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can be extremely beneficial to patients who don’t wish to go under the knife. While the Botox heals the body by restricting the movement of the treated areas of the body, the dermal fillers stimulate the production of elastin and collagen and reshape the face.

During the procedure, Dr. Chang will mark the specific areas of the face where the injectable need to be administered, so as to retain the authentic ethnic look of the patient’s Asian face.
