Amalia Cabezas, an associate professor of women's studies at UC Riverside, said cosmetic surgery is popular among Hispanic women worldwide. Many are driven by images they see on television or in magazines, she said. They want to look more European.

"There's a huge market for it in South America," Cabezas said.
Cabezas, whose research includes the sex industry, said many women go through cosmetic surgery because they see it as an investment in marriage or employment. More people are able to have surgery as credit options have expanded to pay for it, she said.
"It has become much more commonplace," Cabezas said. "It's now democratically available." | Inland Southern California | Inland News [cached]

When Amalia Cabezas moved to Southern California from Cuba, she realized she had to master not only English but also the version of her language spoken by the mostly Mexican Spanish-speaking community.

She quickly eliminated some Cuban words from her vocabulary and adjusted her fast, chopped Spanish to the Mexican version.
"In the process of language acquisition, we Cubans learned three different languages: Mexican-English, Spanglish and English," said Cabezas, a women's-studies professor at UC Riverside.
Names for foods offer some of the greatest contrasts.Guatemalan immigrant Alex L,pez, of Cathedral City, recalled how his jaw dropped when his mother-in-law, who is Mexican, told him she was serving "sopes" for dinner.She was preparing a traditional Mexican food, but L,pez, 36, thought she was cooking up something else.
"I never felt like I was losing something," Cabezas said, "but rather that I was gaining another culture."
