Beauty standards differ across countries and cultures, and it is a misconception that Asian rhinoplasty is requested for the sole purpose of creating a Caucasian nose. The goal of Asian rhinoplasty is to correct cosmetic and functional concerns in a way that is harmonious with existing features and aesthetically pleasing. The reason Asian rhinoplasty is addressed separately from other rhinoplasty techniques is a matter of some anatomical differences, and Dr. Azouz’s expertise allows him to use different surgical options for beautiful Asian rhinoplasty results.
Why Is Asian Rhinoplasty Different?
Most Caucasian and other ethnic nose job surgeries are performed to reduce the size of the nose in some way. Asian nose jobs frequently require enlarging parts of the nose. Many people of Asian descent are unhappy with their profile because their noses tend to be petite and lack a strong nasal bridge. This can make a nose look flat. While it may seem like a purely cosmetic concern, in some cases it makes wearing glasses difficult or can make deviated septum symptoms worse.
Asian rhinoplasty often differs in the surgical approach because the nose must be built up. Instead of removing cartilage and tissue, it must be added. With Asian rhinoplasty, the nose bridge can be heightened using synthetic implants or cartilage from another area. The tip of the nose can be built up in a similar way, although a wide tip can be reduced instead. Azouz Plastic and Cosmetic surgery in Dallas, TX, can address your Asian rhinoplasty concerns with outstanding results.
Richardson Ethnic Nose Job Surgery
For any ethnicity, your aesthetic preferences must be combined with your overall facial structure to create the most natural look. Every person is unique, and there is no single approach to addressing rhinoplasty concerns. One ethnic background may have wide or bulbous noses, while another typically has hooked or humped nasal bridges. It is important to remember that any of these features can be present regardless of ethnicity, and these concerns can be remedied by Dr. Azouz.
