Dr. Huay-Zong Law is an Asian plastic surgeon in Richardson, Texas, who performs various plastic surgery procedures and uses cosmetic treatments to help his patients meet their aesthetic goals. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Law knows the importance of creating personalized treatment plans. Dr. Law creates well-thought-out, custom-designed treatment plans to provide his patients with beautiful, natural-looking results. Besides performing plastic surgery procedures and cosmetic treatments, Dr. Law has a passion for treating infants and adults with clefts and craniofacial abnormalities.

Asian Plastic Surgeon in Richardson, Texas

A plastic surgeon enhances and rejuvenates the face and neck with surgical and non-surgical procedures.

A Brow Lift (aka a Forehead Lift or a Browplasty)

With a brow lift, Dr. Law can reduce the visibility of the horizontal creases across the forehead and the vertical lines that develop between the eyebrows (i.e., frown lines or 11s). In addition, he can address sagging eyebrows by raising them to a more youthful position on the face.

Some of the procedures Dr. Law performs with a brow lift are:

  • Upper and lower blepharoplasties (aka upper and lower eyelid surgeries).
  • A facelift (aka a rhytidectomy).

A Facelift and a Neck Lift

A facelift is a surgical procedure that a plastic surgeon can use to reduce the visual signs of aging in the face. During a facelift, the surgeon creates a more youthful appearance by tightening loose skin. The facelift procedure Dr. Law recommends depends on the aesthetic goals of the patient.

Many patients have a traditional facelift to rejuvenate their face and neck during the same surgical session. A mini-facelift only addresses the lower section of the face.

Common signs of aging that a plastic surgeon addresses with a facelift include:

  • The deep lines that develop from the corners of the mouth to the base of the nose (i.e., glabellar lines).
  • The sagging skin below the jawline or chin (i.e., jowls).
  • Loose, sagging skin on the face and neck.
  • A turkey neck, which refers to the loose skin and excess fat on the neck, frequently resembles a double chin.
  • Excess fat in the lower section of the face.
  • Areas of the face that appear hollow due to falling or lost fat.

Other procedures Dr. Law may perform with a facelift are eyelid surgery, a brow lift and autologous fat transfer. Autologous fat transfer refers to harvesting fat to inject into hollow-looking areas on the face (e.g., the temples and underneath the eyes).

Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS)

With facial feminization surgery, plastic surgeons can soften the facial features of transfeminine individuals and people transitioning from male to female (MTF). As a highly experienced Asian plastic surgeon, Dr. Law has the experience, surgical skill and artistic vision to help his patients achieve their FFS goals.

Ear Procedures

Ear Molding

Ear molding procedures are performed while the cartilage is still pliable. These treatments provide a way for a plastic surgeon to easily reshape the visible portion of an infant’s ear. Many times, molding the ears during infancy prevents the need for surgical intervention.

Irregularities surgeons can address with non-surgical ear molding include:

  • Prominent or protruding ears.
  • Stahl’s ear.
  • Constricted/lop/cup.
  • Helical rim deformities.
  • Cryptotia.

Ear Surgery

With ear surgery (aka otoplasty, cosmetic ear surgery and ear-pinning surgery), a plastic surgeon can reposition, resize and reshape the visible structure of the ear.

Eye Procedures Rejuvenate and Enhance the Face

Eyelid Surgery (aka Blepharoplasty Procedures)

A Lower Blepharoplasty

As we age, the tissues surrounding the eyes start weakening. As these tissues weaken, festoons (i.e., eye bags) develop. Dr. Law, an Asian plastic surgeon in Richardson, Texas, can perform lower eyelid surgery to rejuvenate the eyes.

Ectropion refers to a condition in which the lower eyelid turns outward or droops. A plastic surgeon can perform a blepharoplasty to reposition the eyelid.

Entropion refers to a condition in which the lower eyelid turns inward. Dr. Law can perform a blepharoplasty to correct this issue.

An Upper Blepharoplasty

With upper eyelid surgery, a plastic surgeon manages the eyelid skin, addresses a sagging upper eyelid (i.e., ptosis) and removes medial orbital fat. Dr. Law can also surgically repair or reconstruct the upper eyelid.

A sagging upper eyelid can reduce side vision (i.e., peripheral vision). With eyelid surgery, Dr. Law can address this issue. Even when a plastic surgeon performs a blepharoplasty to improve vision, the patient enjoys a more youthful-looking appearance.

Dr. Law can perform an upper blepharoplasty with other procedures (e.g., a facelift and a brow lift).

Asian Eyelid Surgery

With an Asian blepharoplasty, Dr. Law can remove excess fat and add a crease to a single upper eyelid.

A Cosmetic Rhinoplasty (aka Nose-Reshaping Surgery)

During a cosmetic rhinoplasty, Dr. Law enhances the nose by changing its size and shape.

Functional Rhinoplasty

With a functional rhinoplasty, Dr. Law improves a patient’s ability to breathe through their nose.

A plastic surgeon can perform a cosmetic and functional rhinoplasty during the same surgical session.

Surgery To Correct a Deviated Septum

If a patient has deviated septum surgery because they are having difficulty breathing, their health insurance may cover this procedure.

A plastic surgeon can correct a deviated septum during the same surgical session as a rhinoplasty.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty Procedures in Richardson, Texas

An African American Rhinoplasty

Common characteristics of the African American nose include a low bridge with wide nostrils and an undefined nasal tip. A plastic surgeon can use autologous cartilage or bone to elevate, reshape and refine the nasal structure.

An Asian Rhinoplasty

People of Asian descent also have a nasal structure with unique anatomical characteristics. These characteristics include wide nostrils, a low nasal bridge and a less-defined nasal tip. As an experienced Asian plastic surgeon in Richardson, Texas, Dr. Law can address these characteristics to help his patients reach their aesthetic goals.

Breast Procedures

Plastic surgeons use breast surgery for enhancement purposes, to address physical symptoms and for reconstruction following a mastectomy or breast injury.

A Breast Augmentation (aka an Augmentation Mammaplasty)

During breast augmentation, a plastic surgeon uses silicone or saline implants to increase the size and enhance the shape of the breasts. During an augmentation, Dr. Law can also increase the projection of the breasts.

Autologous Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation (aka Natural Breast Augmentation)

Dr. Law can use the patient’s fat to increase their breast size.

The first step of a natural breast augmentation is using liposuction to harvest fat cells. These cells are taken from areas of the body that tend to accumulate fat that is difficult to lose (e.g., the hips and flanks). After purifying the fat cells, Dr. Law strategically injects them into the breasts. A natural breast augmentation is a good option for those who want to increase their breast size by about a cup.

A Breast Lift (aka Mastopexy)

Dr. Law uses a mastopexy procedure to address sagging and deflated-looking breasts. With a mastopexy, surgeons can raise the breast mounds and remove excess tissue and skin. This gives the patient a chest and silhouette that appear more youthful. The surgeon can also decrease the size of the nipple-areolar complexes before moving them to a natural-looking location on the repositioned breast mounds.

If a patient would like to increase the size of their breasts, Dr. Law can perform a breast augmentation during the same surgical session.

Nipple-Areolar Complex Reduction

If a patient has large nipple-areolar complexes, a plastic surgeon can use this procedure to reduce their size. Dr. Law performs this procedure during a breast lift. However, he can also perform a nipple-areolar complex reduction as a separate procedure.

Breast Explant Surgery (aka Breast Implant Removal)

If a patient wants to upgrade their breast implants, Dr. Law removes the current set before replacing them with the new ones.

Other reasons patients have breast explant surgery include:

  • Wanting to change the size or shape of their implants.
  • Experiencing pain or discomfort.
  • Noticing their implants move unnaturally when they change position.
  • Failing implants (e.g., rupture, malposition or bottoming out).

A Breast Reduction (aka a Reduction Mammaplasty)

When an individual wants smaller breasts, a plastic surgeon can perform a breast reduction. People experiencing back pain, neck pain, difficulty breathing and self-consciousness due to the size of their breasts may be good candidates for breast reduction in Richardson, Texas.

During a reduction mammaplasty, Dr. Law removes excess fat, tissue and skin from the breasts. He moves the breast mounds to a higher position on the chest. He also reduces the size of the nipple-areolar complexes and tightens the skin. After surgery, patients enjoy breasts that are smaller and in better proportion with the rest of their body.

Breast Reconstruction Surgery

A breast reconstruction consists of multiple procedures. A surgeon performs these procedures in stages. A patient may be able to begin reconstruction at the time of their mastectomy. A breast reconstruction procedure can be implant-based or autologous.

An implant-based breast reconstruction involves creating a new breast mound using implants. Autologous (aka flap) reconstruction involves harvesting tissue from a different part of the patient’s body (e.g., the abdomen) to form the new breast. Dr. Law can reconstruct both breasts or a single breast.

When a patient only needs a plastic surgeon to reconstruct one breast, the opposite breast must match the newly reconstructed one. Therefore, Dr. Law may recommend a breast lift, breast augmentation or breast reduction for the opposite breast.

Body Contouring Procedures

Using body contouring procedures, Dr. Law, a Richardson, Texas, Asian plastic surgeon, can enhance the appearance of a patient’s body.

Liposuction (aka Lipoplasty, Lipo, Liposculpture Suction and Lipectomy)

Lipoplasty is a procedure that improves the contour of the body by removing excess fat. This is not weight-loss surgery. Instead, it is meant to address areas where fat tends to remain even with diet and exercise.

Common treatment areas include the following:

  • Waist.
  • Abdomen.
  • Calves.
  • Ankles.
  • Back.
  • Hips.
  • Buttocks.
  • Chest area.
  • Neck.
  • Chin.
  • Thighs.
  • Inner knee.
  • Upper arms.

Dr. Law performs liposuction alone or in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures. These procedures include a breast reduction, a tummy tuck and a facelift.

An Abdominoplasty (aka a Tummy Tuck)

During a tummy tuck, Dr. Law removes excess fat and skin. He may also tighten connective tissue and restore weak or separated muscles. Following surgery, patients enjoy a smoother, more toned abdominal profile.


Besides being a plastic surgeon, Dr. Law is also an expert injector. He uses Botox and Restylane to enhance and rejuvenate the face.


Botox can reduce the visibility of the lines and creases that develop from repetitive muscle movements.

Common treatment areas include the:

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows.
  • Horizontal forehead lines.
  • Crow’s feet at the outer corners of the eyes.

The Dermal Filler Restylane

Restylane fillers use hyaluronic-acid gel technology, and since hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within the human body, an allergic reaction to this filler is highly unlikely.

Using Restylane, an expert injector can restore volume, reduce wrinkles and contour the face.

At his office in Dallas, Dr. Law uses Restylane injections to reduce the visibility of the creases extending from the base of the nose to the corners of the mouth (i.e., nasolabial folds). And the lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin (i.e., marionette lines). By plumping up the marionette lines and nasolabial folds, the skin looks smoother, which helps the patient appear more youthful.

Dr. Law also uses Restylane injections to define and add volume to the lips.

Liquid Rhinoplasty (aka Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty)

With a liquid rhinoplasty, plastic surgeons can enhance and refine the contours of the nose. Since a dermal filler adds volume to the nose, it is a good option for an individual who wants to conceal a minor dorsal hump or improve the contours of their nasal tip. Individuals experiencing breathing problems should consider a surgical rhinoplasty because a liquid rhinoplasty cannot address this issue.

Gynecomastia Surgery (aka Male Breast Reduction)

When a male develops excess fat, glandular tissue and skin on one or both breasts, he has gynecomastia. These breast changes can result from obesity, specific medications, genetics and hormonal changes.

During gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Law reduces the size of a male’s breasts to flatten and enhance the contours of the chest.

A severe case of gynecomastia can cause a male’s breasts to sag and stretch out the nipple-areolar complexes. During a male breast reduction, Dr. Law can reduce the size of the complexes.

Cleft and Craniofacial Surgery

Dr. Law is an Asian plastic surgeon in Richardson, Texas. He is passionate about helping children and adults with cleft and craniofacial needs. For this reason, he became a member of the International Craniofacial Institute.

Cleft Lip Surgery

Several non-surgical techniques can improve the outcome of cleft lip surgery. If Dr. Law believes a non-surgical method will benefit the patient, he will suggest it.

Non-surgical cleft lip techniques:

  • A nasal elevator can help modify the shape of an infant’s nose so it looks more natural.
  • Lip taping can help reduce the size of the gap in the lip.
  • A nasal-alveolar molding device can help mold the tissues into a more favorable position before surgery.

When creating a cleft lip surgical plan, Dr. Law considers the child’s age, health conditions, special needs and the extent of the cleft.

The initial surgery for cleft lip repair occurs when the infant is between three and six months of age. If a second surgery is necessary, a plastic surgeon will perform it once the infant is six months old.

Cleft Palate

A plastic surgeon usually performs cleft palate surgery once a child reaches 12 months of age. With this surgery, Dr. Law constructs a working palate. This working palate reduces the likelihood of the child developing fluid in the middle ear. Some children born with a cleft palate do need surgery at some point in the future to help with improving their speech.

Cleft Rhinoplasty

Although a cleft rhinoplasty offers aesthetic benefits, it also addresses issues related to the structure and function of the nose. Children born with a cleft lip and palate often have a misshapen nose. This irregular shape results from a separation of the nasal structure. The goals of a cleft rhinoplasty are to improve the child’s quality of life by allowing them to breathe normally and have well-balanced facial features.


When a baby is born with craniosynostosis, the bones in their skull have closed prematurely. Typically, only one cranial suture closes prematurely. However, there are several types of craniosynostosis.

Once Dr. Law knows which type of craniosynostosis the patient has, he creates a personalized surgical treatment plan. Seeking treatment is vital. If left untreated, this condition can lead to a variety of problems, including an irregularly shaped skull, bulging, wide-set eyes and vision problems.

Hemifacial Microsomia

The hallmark of this condition is an uneven face. Hemifacial microsomia can affect one or both sides of the face. This condition is the second most common birth defect.

Hemifacial microsomia can affect the:

  • Eyes.
  • Cheekbones.
  • Facial nerves.
  • Muscles.
  • Lower jaw.
  • Neck.

Although rare, this condition can affect other body systems (e.g., the heart, ribs and spine).

Parry-Romberg Syndrome

Parry-Romberg syndrome is rare. The symptoms of this syndrome are evident within the first 20 years of life. This disorder is characterized by the skin and tissues of the face slowly shrinking. Typically, only one side of the face is affected.

The specific symptoms and severity of this syndrome vary from one patient to the next. Some individuals experience eye, tooth, or neurological abnormalities.

Surgical intervention can begin once the individual is no longer experiencing atrophic changes. A plastic surgeon in Richardson, Texas, can use injections of fat or silicone and surgical techniques to aesthetically improve the appearance of the face (e.g., bone implants or flat/pedicle grafts).

Using a variety of procedures, Dr. Huay-Zong Law helps his patients improve their lives by regaining a more youthful appearance, enhancing the contours of their bodies and addressing problematic issues (e.g., overly large breasts and a deviated septum). In addition, he performs life-changing procedures to help patients with clefts and craniofacial abnormalities.

Dr. Huay-Zong Law uses advanced surgical methods and state-of-the-art equipment to help his patients reach their goals.
