What is Asian Plastic Surgery?
Plastic surgery techniques available today were developed primarily for the Caucasian population. The results from these procedures are not necessarily in alignment with the cosmetic goals of Asian patients.
To remedy this disconnect, Dr. C Carson Hunyh employs advanced surgical methods that were specifically designed to enhance Asian anatomy, depending of course on what his patients are looking for. Dr. C. Carson Huynh is one of only a handful of surgeons in the country who holds dual-doctorate degrees in the practices of maxillofacial and facial aesthetic plastic surgery, and he understands that each patient has unique requirements and desires.
Ultimately, this allows him to preserve your cultural identity, while avoiding an overly Western look, creating harmony, balance and a beautiful new appearance all your own.
V-line jaw surgery, also known as mandibuloplasty, is used to make the jaw line look narrower. The surgery removes parts of your jaw and chin, reshaping them so that your jaw will heal in a more pointed shape like the letter “V”.”
Some cultures associate a V-shaped jaw and chin shape with femininity and female beauty. More often than not, people interested in this procedure are usually those who identify as a woman or as nonbinary and wish to have a more “feminine” jaw and chin shape.
The ideal candidate for V-line jaw surgery is a nonsmoker with an active lifestyle without any health history of bleeding or autoimmune conditions. As with any type of surgery, V-line jaw surgery has risks.
