What Is an Asian Rhinoplasty?
Asian rhinoplasty is a subset of traditional rhinoplasty surgery, and the goal of both an Asian nose job and a traditional nose job is identical – to create a nose that is harmonious with an individual’s face.
Each ethnic group has unique facial features, and an Asian nose surgery addresses and maintains the ethnic characteristics of Asians. Thus, an Asian nose job may serve as an ideal option for the following ethnic groups:
Rhinoplasty is one of the most complex cosmetic treatments, and it is essential for an individual to choose an experienced and highly trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon for Asian rhinoplasty, like Dr. Babak Azizzadeh. He makes it a priority to take the time to learn about an individual’s Asian nose surgery goals and provide him or her with a naturally and ethnically appropriate nose.
Is an Asian Rhinoplasty More Difficult Than a Traditional Rhinoplasty?
An Asian nose job enables a person to address the distinct characteristics of the Asian nose. For example, many Asian patients have noses with fewer growth centers in the mid-face than Caucasians. In addition, some Asian individuals have wide nostrils (alar flaring) or Columella (the hanging portion of the underside of the nose) that is hidden.
Asian rhinoplasty is designed specifically for individuals of Asian descent. Therefore, it may prove to be more difficult than traditional rhinoplasty.
A double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon like Dr. Azizzadeh understands the differences between Asian and traditional rhinoplasty. He or she will teach a patient about all aspects of a nose job before treatment.
Is There a Standard Asian Rhinoplasty Treatment?
There is no one-size-fits-all Asian rhinoplasty treatment. Instead, Dr. Azizzadeh tailors each Asian rhinoplasty procedure to a patient’s needs. This enables an Asian nose surgery patient to achieve a nose that complements his or her cheeks, chin and other facial features.
