What Does It Involve?
Asian aesthetics is not about “westernization” but more about improving the harmony and facial balance. Maintaining and understanding ethnic features is vital to Asian cosmetic surgery. Mr Ho-Asjoe has a special interest in Asian Aesthetics with his training taking him to both Taiwan and Shanghai where cosmetic surgery is extremely popular but not publicized.
Double eyelid surgery and nasal augmentation are by far the two most popular cosmetic surgeries in the Asian community but uncommon in the Caucasian population. Both surgeries can be carried out under local anesthetics as a day case if so wished. More recently, there is an increase in the popularity of non-invasive procedures such as Botox, fillers and radiofrequency and laser. They all play an important role in facial and body aesthetics and it is important to have a detailed consultation to identify the best treatment.
More recently, the trend of nasal augmentation has moved from silicone implantation to hyaluronic acid injection.
