Asian Rhinoplasty

The key to any ethnic rhinoplasty is for the surgery to produce a nose that is in balance and harmony with the patient's overall facial features.

Typical features of an Asian nose that many patients wish to improve include:

  • Low dorsum (bridges)
  • Flat dorsum
  • Wide nostril base
  • Broad tip
  • Under-projecting tip

Correction of these features often produces a nose that is more "Western". However, the degree to which any of the varialbes is changed should be a mutual decision between the surgeon and the patient.
