A lot of people choose to have Asian Rhinoplasty, but a great deal of care must be exercised to retain the unique features of the Asian nose. A Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that can be used to improve the aesthetics and function of one’s nose. The Asian Rhinoplasty provides these benefits as well, but helps to keep the general structure of the Asian intact.

Whether your wish is to improve the look of your nose or correct functional deficiencies, an Asian Rhinoplasty is the perfect solution for those who want to alter their nose without changing their overall look. Your doctor will make sure to take your features into account while correcting any issues you have with your nose.

Preparing for Your Surgery

Before the surgery, your skin will need to be dry and free of any cosmetics. You will also need to stop eating and drinking at midnight, the night before the procedure. If you are a smoker, your doctor will ask that you stop smoking for some time before the surgery. You will also be asked to stop taking certain medications in the time leading up to the procedure.

You will need to provide your doctor with your medical history before the procedure. If you are free of any underlying medical conditions, you are a worthy candidate and can move forward with the procedure.

The Asian Rhinoplasty Procedure

There are significant differences between the Asian nose and their Caucasian counterparts. These differences include the height of the bridge, the width of the tip, and the nostrils of the nose. Careful attention to detail must be paid in order to provide the Asian nose with the proper corrective techniques.

The Asian nose often requires greater height and projection, as well as a revision of the tip and nostrils. It is unique, and the rhinoplasty should be customized to take into account your unique features.

During your initial consultation, your doctor will assess your bodily needs and prepare a treatment plan to help you achieve your ideal look. An Asian rhinoplasty can be performed non-surgically for those who qualify and surgically if you require extensive corrections.

Due to the fact that many Asian noses have low nasal bridges, an implant may be used to help reshape your nose. An implant may be sourced from your own cartilage or your doctor may utilize an advanced composite implant.

Recovering from the Asian Rhinoplasty Procedure

Once the surgery is completed, patients can typically expect to see improvements in their nose in about a week. You may have minimal bruising during this time, but that is expected to subside quickly. You can return to work or school and freely perform many of your normal daily activities. In about two weeks, you can perform moderate exercise and in about three weeks, you’ll be able to comfortably play any contact sport.
