Ethnic Plastic Surgery
With a wide variety of skin colors and facial features, America is the world's largest melting pot. People of color have different needs when considering plastic surgery, including:
- Facial features
- Different standards of beauty
Dr. Kofi Boahene heads the ethnic cosmetic surgery program and is board-certified in both cosmetic surgery and otolaryngology. Reshaping the ethnic nose requires sensitivity to individual ethnic features and accepted norms. At our Center, we have vast experience and work with patients to achieve their aesthetic rhinoplasty goals.
