Finding an expert Asian rhinoplasty surgeon

+2

You should start by seeking a board certified plastic surgeon who has a great deal of experience in Asian rhinoplasty in your area and then expand your search from there if you do not like what you find.  What you need to know is how experienced they are in Asian rhinoplasty by asking for before and after photos of previous patients.  This will give you an idea of how many procedures they have performed and help you make your decision.  Make sure all of your questions are answered during your consultation so that your specific goals are understood.  Some surgeons may also have patients whom you can contact if you need further reassurance.  Best of luck.

The starting point is to find a qualified board certified plastic surgeon.  A surgeon who is expert, caring, and experienced will draw less than a surgeon who is less capable. Secondly, the experience of the surgeon will reflect the demographics of the area in which he practices.  A surgeon who practices in an area with a sizeable Asian population will more likely see more Asians than someone who practices in an area that is sparse with Asians. Before and afters photos of a surgeon's work can be a reflection.

The main thing you want to find is someone experience is treating noses similar to yours. Seeing before and after photos of the surgeon's results is important.

It is important to address the whole nose in order to create a natural result. Consult with a few surgeons in your area to discuss your goals and get a better idea of your options.

First and foremost, it is very important to choose a surgeon who is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Secondly, choose a surgeon who has a lot of experience with Asian patients, because he/she will understand and appreciate the intricacies of Asian facial features. The most common mistake that I see my Asian patients make is that they think having an implant placed to make their bridge look higher is all that they need. In actuality, you often have to address many aspects of the nose to create a natural appearance for the patient. Good luck in your search

Like any area, find someone experienced in the procedure with correct surgical qualifications, and drill down critically at the before and after photos. These represent the surgeon's best work. Ask for a photo of someone who has a similar problem as you. Ask for realistic potential outcomes. Best of luck!

What you should be looking for, IMHO is a n experienced Rhinoplasty Surgeon with a keen aesthetic sense including that which applies to Asians.  IMO, clinics seem to rely on quick, older techniques to raise the dorsum using L-shaped silastic dorsal grafts that have been known to erode through the skin.

What makes an expert Asian Rhinoplasty Surgeon

+1

First off, the idea that the surgeon needs to be Asian is an illusion.  I revise a lot of work from over seas as well as in my area.

An expert in Asian rhinoplasty is going to be someone who enjoys it and makes it his or her business to work on the Asian face.  My pick in your area would be Tom Wang, in Portland.  That would be a great place to start.

The surgeon, no matter what they say, should have plenty of photo evidence of their work and have past patients for you to speak to.

 

Hope that helps,

It’s important to have one-on-one consultations with plastic surgeons before making any decision. Check credentials, certifications, but most of all: trust your instinct. You want to make sure your surgeon is a good fit for you and your specific needs and goals.
Best of luck to you!
