Asian rhinoplasty is an exceptionally challenging and demanding operation both technically and aesthetically. To achieve the best results in the safest, most predictable manner requires experience, technical excellence and artistry. There are a variety of techniques and philosophies when it comes to reshaping the nose during Asian rhinoplasty. One of the most important technical differences between surgeons is the use of artificial implants versus using your own tissue. I feel very strongly that the best way to achieve safe, permanent results is with tissue from your own body.
Consult with an experienced Asian rhinoplasty specialist and look carefully at his/her Before/Afters to find a surgeon with the aesthetic that matches yours.
Close rhinoplasty, some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us.
In this regard, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.

From what I see from you picture, you are a great candidate for the asian rhinoplasty. In-person consultation to evaluate the area is best but from looking at your pictures, hump reduction, possible infracture of the nasal bridge, and tip and alar reduction will give you slimmer and long nose without looking unnatural. Please refer to some of my before and after pictures of asian rhinoplasty.
Am I A Good Candidate For An Asian Rhinoplasty?
The most important procedure in any Asian rhinoplasty is finding the right plastic surgeon with a great deal of experience in the natural and subtle improvements in the non-Caucasian nose. You need a Board Certified plastic surgeon who listens closely to what you want, but also helps guide you to the necessary subtle improvements that you will be satisfied with for the rest of your life.
If you were my patient, I would correct your bimaxillary retrusion (the way your upward lip slangs backward towards your nose) with a peri-pyriform implant invented by Dr. Robert Brink. Your dorsal hump can be easily rasped. The tip of your nose can be made less round by cartilage placed in the columella (the strip of skin between your two nostrils). This will also allow a little columella show (allows the columella to be seen from the side since it is now up inside your nose). Finally, I would narrow the base of your nose by using a circlage, a suture placed in the upper lip bringing the nostrils together. This was first described by Dr. Ronald Gruber of Oakland, California.
Do your research on the internet. Look at reviews and before & after pictures. The good news is San Francisco and it's environs have some of the best Asian rhinoplasty surgeons in the world.
