Though Asian rhinoplasty continues to surge in popularity with California Asian rhinoplasty specialist Paul S. Nassif, M.D., F.A.C.S., some patients experience apprehension in their decision to have the procedure done. Though Asian rhinoplasty does not seek to minimize a patient’s ethnicity, family members and friends may express negative feelings to potential patients. They may disagree with the general practice of plastic surgery, or feel betrayed that someone close to them, and a member of their ethnicity, seeks to change their looks.
When making the decision to undergo Asian rhinoplasty, people seek support. They want to know they will be cared for during recovery, and accepted once their looks change. Those who elect to undergo the procedure do not do so in an effort to feel superior amongst others of their ethnicity, but rather for other personal reasons. They may feel self-conscious about the look of their nose, or have suffered a past trauma that distorted its shape. Regardless of why a patient chooses plastic surgery, they often want others to approve of their decision.
You Are Beautiful As You Are
In an effort to boost one’s self-esteem, loved ones may tell them, “You look great now, so why change?” While patients appreciate the earnest effort to uplift them, this thought does not resonate with many. We assume people close to us have grown comfortable with our looks, and see us for who we are. How can they be an accurate gauge of whether or not we could improve our looks? Asian rhinoplasty will only alter a single feature of the face, so a person will not become unrecognizable; through the reconstruction of the nose, a person will experience enhancements to their looks.
Asian Rhinoplasty Cost
While external influences can affect a potential Asian rhinoplasty patient’s decision to go under the knife, there are also patient-specific reasons for feeling apprehensive about the procedure. One main internal conflict is the cost. Though we often hear about movie stars and celebrities undergoing facial plastic surgery, the truth is that most patients are everyday people. They earn moderate incomes and do not lead glamorous lifestyles. Modern facial plastic surgeons have catered their practices to these patient bases. In many offices, payment plans or credit card payments are an option. Other times, there may be medical necessity to perform Asian rhinoplasty, such as in the case of patients who suffer a deviated septum or traumatic nose injury that inhibits proper breathing patterns. If a rhinoplasty is performed in part due to necessity, insurance companies may cover a portion of the cost.
Concern Over the Final Product
Though Dr. Nassif is internationally known for his work in facial plastic surgery and is regarded as the Asian Rhinoplasty Specialist, hesitant patients may worry that they will not like their final results. Though the nose can sometimes heal in unpredictable ways, Dr. Nassif is an expert in facial anatomy and has worked extensively with Asian facial construction. The doctor is regarded as one of the most sought-after cosmetic surgeons in our nation.
