What Cosmetic Issues Does Asian Rhinoplasty Address?
Asian rhinoplasty techniques can correct several common cosmetic issues with the nose and bring more balance to the facial features:
Bridge of the nose
These implants consist of a silicone shell filled with sterile saline solution. Saline implants can be filled after they are placed in the body to allow for minor modifications in size after placement and smaller surgical incisions.
An Asian nose often has weak underlying cartilage and thick skin at the nasal tip. Asian nose surgery often involves increasing the projection and length of the tip. This is accomplished using cartilage grafts to build up the tip, placed to provide structural support and long-lasting results.
Nostrils vary widely among Asian patients, but very few require nostril narrowing. In many cases, the nostrils narrow on their own when improvements are made to the tip cartilage.
