Plastic Surgery in Asian Patients

Plastic Surgery in Asian Patients

Seattle is a gateway to the Pacific and the Asian Rim countries.  As a facial plastic surgeon I have worked extensively in Asia performing surgery and on broader educational programs.  In recent years, I have lectured in Hong Kong and mainland China plus performed surgical procedures such as facelifts and cleft lip palate repairs in China. I have been invited by the Chinese University of Hong Kong to be their Distinguished Scholar lecturer for 2016 and also to lecture in Hangzhou, China in the spring of 2016.

We are proud of our work with cleft children in China and honor Joseph Wong who began these missions. You can read my article to honor Joseph Wong in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery

The Larrabee Center Is Proud to Support the Local Asian Community

We also support the Asian members of our local community. The Larrabee Center was a major sponsor for the ACRS 40th Anniversary Gala.   The Asian Counseling and Referral Service (ACRS) is a nationally recognized nonprofit organization offering a broad array of human services and behavioral health programs to Asian Pacific Americans in King County. ACRS is the largest multiservice organization serving all the different Asian Pacific American communities – immigrants, refugees and American born – in the Pacific Northwest. This is a wonderful organization and we are proud to support its mission and our good friend and fellow board member Derek Edmonds.

Serving Seattle’s Asian Community

The Larrabee Center is fortunate to have a large number of Asian patients. We have tailored our skincare program and non-surgical laser treatments to be able to specifically treat Asian skin. We have worked over the years to develop surgical expertise in Asian eyelid surgery and Asian rhinoplasty. Both require different technique than in the average Caucasian patient.  Our surgical experience in Asia and working with Asian surgeons in their own countries has helped refine our understanding of these patients. We will address our specific techniques for Asian eyelids and noses in future blogs.

Important Notice

Our Aesthetic Center is set for a soft reopening Monday, May 18th! 

We are thrilled to announce the soft opening of our aesthetic center on May 18th, 2020 in compliance with Governor Jay Inslee’s proclamation (20-05-20-24) of elective cosmetic medical procedures being restricted up until this date. We will not be resuming full activity of The Larrabee Center right away. 

Suite 385 Covid-19 Updates:

 Below you will find actions we have taken to ensure that you are protected and that we maintain Suite 385 as a Non-Covid Care (NCC) Zone:

Please be advised with the soft opening, our hours, providers, appointment availability and staff will be reduced to avoid unnecessary exposure. We fully understand that this will result in some inconvenience in the short term, but it is essential we do everything in our power to ensure the safety of our patient, and our staff.

We ask that if you are calling to reschedule an appointment from March, April, or early May, please be patient until our front desk coordinators reach out to you as we have limited staff working diligently for reopening and the phone lines are overwhelmed with calls.
