Plastic Surgery Popularity Surges Among People of Color

As plastic surgery and non-surgical cosmetic procedures become increasingly accessible, options have expanded for multiethnic patients who seek out Board Certified Knoxville Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kleto.

Dr. Kleto proudly serves patients in Knoxville, Sevierville and throughout Knox County, Tennessee.

Roughly a quarter of all plastic surgery patients in the United States are now Black, Asian or Hispanic/Latino, according to research conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

That 2010 data reflects nearly a 250 percent increase in the number of people of color who undergo plastic surgery and other cosmetic treatments.

People of color constitute about a fourth of Tennessee’s population, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Regardless of race or ethnicity, individual motivation for cosmetic surgery tends to be the same.

Nearly all Dr. Kleto’s patients are looking to:

  • Turn back the clock
  • Refine their physique
  • Improve facial aesthetics

That said, each patient’s physiology is distinct, and everyone incurs some degree of risk when they undergo surgery.

When you want to explore plastic surgery or non-surgical cosmetic treatments that can help you look and feel your best, please contact Dr. Dean Kleto online or call us directly to schedule a consultation: (865) 366-4755 locally or toll free at (877) 907-0747.
