Is It Possible for Space Between Eyes to Be Shaved Down And Have Nose Fixed To Look More Asian? I’m Half Asian.

Q: I’m mixed Asian, but I don’t look like it. But I really want my Caucasian nose to look Asian. I hate it! I edited it one time and saw what it would be like with an Asian nose, and it looked so much better! Also, my eyes are a problem. Is it possible to slightly lift or tighten the ends of my eye to make them a little bit slanted? Whenever I am with my sisters and mom I look like a stranger! I know I have dark circles but no problem.

A: I have many mixed-race friends, and being Asian myself, I can certainly relate to your feelings regarding your cultural identity.  I can see that you relate more to your Asian side at the moment, but things may change as you get older.  In my humble opinion, I do not think plastic surgery is the best option for you right now.  It’s amazing how our view of the world and ourselves change as we age; so don’t be in a rush to jump into surgery quite yet.
