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.
