Speaking personally, understanding those cultural patterns has allowed me to gain a deeper insight into the psychology of my patients and a tremendous insight into the commonalities of beauty all around the world.

Dr. Babak Farzaneh, Inland Empire Cosmetic Surgeon, discusses cultural aesthetic considerations with Modern Aesthetics.

"While a variety of literature has been written on cosmetic surgery as a means of erasing links to race and culture, what has been less-explored is the ability of cosmetic surgery to enhance these bonds," notes Dr. Farzaneh. "Often, our job is to educate those coming from different cultures -- especially more consumer-driven cultures -- that cosmetic surgery is not to be taken lightly."

"We aren’t technicians delivering a product," Dr. Farzaneh adds, "but doctors responsible for exercising professional judgment and ensuring that our patients maximize their chances of a safe and healthy recovery."

Dr. Farzaneh goes on to cover many aspects of how culture influences beauty decisions, oftentimes in ways as varied as the cultures from which patients come.

"Cultural expectations and lifestyle differences tend to create different demands for procedures based purely on pragmatic grounds," notes Dr. Farzaneh. "The desires of patients from one culture may seem foreign or even outrageous to another culture, but drivers often have the very same sort of underlying basis between cultures."
