The Global Pursuit of a Bigger Butt The frenzy for curves that replicate — and distort — Black beauty ideals
1. Tell us a little about yourself and your professional background? I am a plastic surgeon with offices in Detroit, Birmingham and Ann Arbor...
As a facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Charles Boyd has crafted the smiles of countless men and women around Metro Detroit, however, one of the most memorable smiles he’s seen belonged to a woman in Kenya. She was the mother of a baby on whom he performed cleft-palate surgery two years ago...
As far as wrinkle-reducing goes, injectables are considered one of the most effective options on the market for achieving smoother, plumper skin. And while we love the effects of these neurotoxins and dermal fillers, these miracle-workers can cost a pretty penny.
It should come as no surprise that a dedicated skin-care routine in addition to injectables will help keep your skin looking smoother than ever.
Just a few years ago it was almost unheard of for black women and men to see a cosmetic surgeon, because everybody knows (and as the saying goes), “black don’t crack.”
But black and brown skin truly can sag and bag due to sun exposure, poor nutrition and slacking on your skin maintenance routine.
Charles Boyd, MD, a Harvard-bred, Michigan-based board certified plastic surgeon says that overall, folks of all ages, races, and ethnicities are having more cosmetic work done today than ever before.
Plastic surgery is a billion dollar industry. Women and men flock to surgeons hoping to look younger.
But Dr. Charles Boyd who owns Boyd Cosmetics in Birmingham uses his skilled hands for so much more.
Dr. Boyd has been fortunate, as a graduate of Harvard's Medical School and the University of Michigan's School of Business, his parents taught him as a young man career accolades and money are not what's most important. Instead, it’s about trying to give back and helping others, his motto: "the more you give, the more you receive."
