Asian rhinoplasty procedures address specific issues that are commonly encountered with people with an Asian background. The specific approach that is used depends on the specific goal of each patient. For Asian patients, it is most common for patients to address:
- Flat Bridge
- Flat Tip
- Wide or Flared Nostrils
- Bulbous or Poorly Defined Tip
- Droopy or Down-turned Profile
According to the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health “There has been a tremendous growth of cosmetic surgery among Asians worldwide.” They also state that rhinoplasty is second only to blepharoplasty in terms of popularity among Asians. The delicate balance that comes with this procedure when trying to maintain the essential features of Asian ethnicity and the desired improvements and changes desired by each patient.
There is a wide variation among Asians and common nose traits. For this reason, it is of great importance for each patient to be evaluated before the rhinoplasty procedure to discuss desired outcomes and current dynamics and features of the nose. It is helpful for you to find and bring pictures or illustrations of your desired outcome to your consultation so Dr. Ransom at San Francisco Center for Facial Plastic, reconstructive & Laser Surgery can fully see and understand your desired nose.
