NOSE JOBS FOR BOLIVIANS
In Bolivia, many indigenous people are turning to cosmetic surgery to reduce the size and shape of their noses. They say their prominent aquiline noses often attract comment and discrimination. These procedures are now readily available, with many surgeons advertising their services and even offering low-cost packages and discounts for poor people. In the Bolivian capital La Paz, Outlook's Andres Schipani met 19-year-old Juan Carlos who is ethnically Aymara and spoke to him before and after his nose surgery.
