Ethnic Cosmetic Surgery

Conveniently located to serve New York City

As someone from a non-Caucasian background, your cosmetic surgery results should be tailored to your ideals of beauty and not toward creating a cookie-cutter result. Instead of simply “Westernizing” your face or body, experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Basil Pakeman enhances your attractiveness by creating the results you want, and he has treated patients from diverse ethnic backgrounds. He understands the human form as well as variances in the human form, and he can produce the body or face result that will allow you to live with the most confidence. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Pakeman, please call Manhattan Surgical Care at 212-308-1566.

What Is Ethnic Cosmetic Surgery?

Cosmetic surgery is not a one-size fits all procedure. Every individual comes from a different culture with unique beauty standards. The goal at Manhattan Surgical Care is to promote inclusive beauty and raise awareness and appreciation for all members of the community.

Ethnic cosmetic surgery is focused on highlighting or enhancing features that are unique to your culture. During the consultation, you will be asked about your appearance goals and the possible procedures that can be performed to achieve your desired look.

A Cosmetic Surgeon personally committed to enhancing your Appearance

The goal of your cosmetic surgery is not to create a Westernized, white appearance, but to address the features that you want to change in a way that flatters your body, face and other features. At Dr. Pakeman’s cosmetic surgery practice, each patient has unique concerns and goals, but the procedures often requested to modify features that our patients consider “ethnic” include:

Dr. Pakeman has perfected the art of body sculpting and oculo-facial surgery after many years of working on and studying the human form. He understands the patient perspective of ethnic beauty, and tailors his cosmetic surgery skills to meet an individual’s desires. This is very evident especially in his Asian eyelid surgery, buttock enhancement, and body sculpting procedures. Patients from local, national, and international locations seek him for his services. We even offer a virtual consultation for patients who are not nearby.

Preparing for Ethnic Cosmetic Surgery

An ethnic cosmetic procedure is more personal and individualized to meet the inclusive needs of a patient. Because the surgical plan for each patient is unique, the preparation will be as well.

Candidates must be ready to discuss their complete medical history to confirm eligibility for the procedures. A few lab tests may also be required to help Dr. Pakeman prepare for the procedure.

Candidates must quit smoking and drinking alcohol before the procedure. Like any surgical procedure, these lifestyle habits can lead to complications and a slower healing process.

Blood thinners, anti-inflammatory medications, and herbal supplements may not be allowed before or after the procedure, since these can increase the risk of bleeding.

Please inform our team of any allergies ahead of time.

Ethnic Cosmetic Surgery Recovery

The recovery period for each procedure will vary. For surgical procedures, expect an initial recovery period where you will rest and heal. You will need to be off from work during this time.

The best results from ethnic cosmetic surgery can be achieved with proper aftercare. Make sure to get enough sleep and to eat a proper diet to aid your recovery. Come to follow-up visits so that Dr. Pakeman can check on your recovery process.

Learning more about your Cosmetic Surgical Options

Depending on your individual needs, ethnicity and body type, Dr. Pakeman will recommend the most appropriate enhancement procedure, and each procedure is patient-specific with beautiful, natural-looking results.

Dr. Pakeman strongly believes in maintaining a positive doctor-patient relationship, striving to provide all of his patients with the information they need to make the right decisions.
