"Christine, a 23-year-old Burmese patient who saw Dr. Rivkin for the injectable rhinoplasty, admitted it was glossy images that made her self-conscious of her wider nose as a little girl.
"'I liked to read and look through the pictures in beauty magazines,' Christine tells StyleList. 'The beautiful women with Western features always were on covers and graced the pages, which started to make me feel different and insecure.'"

Dr. Anthony Griffin, a Los Angeles-based plastic surgeon who invented the Brazilian Butt Lifft, during which fat from the "patient's body is injected into the buttocks to make it fuller, says that what used to be a hush-hush procedure is now both popular and commonplace -- especially among people of color.
"Initially, it was funny, because I thought it was mostly going to be Caucasians that wanted this procedure," he told Black Voices. "But, ironically, mostly people of color wanted it, because they're like, "Hey, look -- I'm supposed to have a butt.'"

"Dr. Ghavami has written textbook chapters and professional essays on the difference between 'ethnic' rhinoplasties and the 'regular' nose job, and is considered an expert in the field.
"The key is to recognize the ethnic features that make that person unique and not create a nose that is 'cookie cutter' and Westernized. For the past 30 years, there have been nasal proportion and guidelines that have been taught to plastic surgeons, but this approach in ethnic patients may create what I call 'racial incongruity. I'm sure you can think of multiple examples among African-American celebrities who have noses that don't fit with the rest of their ethnic features. There are special techniques of using suture shaping along with cartilage grafting to create ethnically balanced noses," says Dr. Ghavami."
