hi everyone.I need to plot functions that look like this:

-4 x + (5 x^19)/(3 ((2 x^20)/3 + y^20/3)^(19/20)) == 0

I was using the old function ImplicitPlot to do this, but it doesn't mix
well with other functions I'm aplying (such as Manipulate)

ParametricPlot does work, but I have no idea how to convert this equation to
a parametric one.

Is there a systematic thing I can do or do I have to convert them by hand to
parametric equations?

As always, thank you very much for your time!

Kind regards,
