At the heart of effective plastic surgery is an unswerving commitment to harmony. Cosmetic enhancements, whether they are performed on the face or buttocks, only look natural when they are blended seamlessly with the surrounding landscape of your body. Rhinoplasty (a nose job) and buttock augmentation can both bear that stigmatized “done” appearance when a plastic surgeon tries to emulate a certain popular look rather than tailor his alterations to the particular features of his patient. Let’s first consider rhinoplasty for a moment. This is perhaps the most delicate and complex cosmetic procedure, and if the surgeon limits himself to a universal standard of beauty (most often defined by Northern European facial traits), the result can be “racial incongruity”. You can’t just slap some generalized idea of the perfect “Caucasian nose” onto a person of Middle-Eastern, African, Asian, or Hispanic heritage. It simply won’t look natural. This is why Dr. Ashkan Ghavami, a board certified Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, places such a premium on “ethno-sensitive” rhinoplasty. He takes into consideration the patient’s individual characteristics, as well as commonalities in facial and nasal structure found within groups of people with certain ancestries. That tailored approach to rhinoplasty is essential to achieving a natural, harmonious look.
