As the holidays get closer and closer, you are probably starting to think about decorations, dinner parties, and gifts for your friends and loved ones. This year, why not treat yourself? If you’re Asian, and would like to change the appearance and/or function of your nose, consider getting yourself ethnicrhinoplasty this holiday season.
What Is Asian Rhinoplasty?
“Rhinoplasty” means to reshape the nose. It’s one of the top five most common plastic surgeries performed on both men and women. The procedure involves adjusting the cartilage, bone, and soft tissue that make up a person’s nose to promote harmony amongst the facial features and ensure that the nose functions properly.
Asian rhinoplasty is one of several forms of ethnic rhinoplasty, which involves shaping the nose to match the ethnicity of the patient. Each ethnicity has different facial characteristics and the nose is one of the most prominent differences. A surgeon skilled in ethnic rhinoplasty will be able to give you a nose that looks natural and culturally accurate.
How Is the Asian Nose Different?
Asians tend to have low nasal bridges, round nasal tips, and a wider nasal base. They also tend to have thicker and oilier skin. These characteristics are different from Western noses, which tend to be narrower with a pointy tip. Common changes to the nose in Asian rhinoplasty include raising the nasal bridge, narrowing the base, and refining the shape of the nasal tip. All of these provide the nose with more character and definition while remaining true to the patient’s ethnicity.
How Can I Find Out If Asian Rhinoplasty Is Right for Me?
The best way to find out more about this procedure and its benefits is to schedule an Asian rhinoplasty consultation with an Asian rhinoplasty specialist. A specialist will have a thorough understanding of the needs of your nasal characteristics and the training to apply general rhinoplasty techniques. During your consultation, your surgeon will conduct an assessment of your nose as well as your medical history, and determine the best course of action to have you looking and feeling your best. Your surgeon will also discuss the procedure itself, from beginning to end, as well as the recovery and potential risks.
