We will see real black professional doctors running professions. Unfortunately, when we see AA’s on screen much of the time what we see is unrealistic portrayals.

African Americans and surgery has turned into an interesting topic as of late in the community. Black women are more concerned with the nature of their surgical scars due to the risk of keloids or thick ropey dark scars.They tend to shy away from the full face and neck lift afraid of the scars of the procedure. A common issue for the black woman are split earlobes and the need to have them repaired. Often, large hanging earrings pull the holes down and eventually tear through the bottom of the earlobe over time. Most women think it is an easy repair where you just stitch up the torn area. But unfortunately, it is not as easy as it appears. If the tear is just stitched up the split, an earring will just tear right through the thinner scar quickly.
We will of course see some of the common issues that are new to our society.If you’re an African-American considering plastic surgery or other cosmetic procedures, make sure you find a board-certified surgeon, dermatologist or other professional who has had experience with your skin type. Visit surgery.org and do your research.
