Race, Culture and Ethnicity Playing Important Roles in Cosmetic Surgery Procedures

Share Article

As many surgeons are overlooking racial and cultural standards in cosmetic surgery procedures, Tampa plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Greenwald is taking time to understand his patients and their ethnic backgrounds.

When it comes to beauty, originality counts. As more and more Americans explore cosmetic surgery options to improve their looks and heighten self-esteem, there is a fear that the rich diversity and unique ethnicity of individual patients is being sacrificed for the homogenized, streamlined look of current surgical trends.

Renowned surgeon Dr. Daniel Greenwald of Tampa Bay agrees, and has been committed to providing specialized attention to each particular patient, striving for a personalized look that pays homage to the individualized beauty of the patient's ethnic and cultural background while creating aesthetically pleasing results. The patient's own needs, cultural history, specific desires and individual goals are an integral facet of successful surgery, he claims.

Dr. Greenwald advocates the importance of a meticulous understanding of anatomy in creating this level of individualized results. "Newer techniques in minimally invasive procedures must be tailored for the individual patient to avoid "cookie-cutter" results" explains Greenwald. "Additionally, the trend towards modifying the face with dermal fillers and aggressive skin treatments must be modified to avoid unnatural contours and pigmentation."

Dr. Daniel Greenwald has been practicing Cosmetic Surgery and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery in Tampa since 1993. He graduated cum laude from Princeton University and received his medical degree from Yale. After training in General Surgery in New York, Dr. Greenwald was chosen to receive the first-ever research Scholarship Award from the Plastic Surgery Education Foundation.

Dr. Greenwald is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, including Cosmetic Surgery of the face, head and neck, trunk, and extremities. He has held appointments at the National Institutes of Health and the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. He is a member of many scientific and medical societies and has published more than 40 peer-review journal articles. He has lectured around the world on topics relating to Plastic Surgery.
