Asian Rhinoplasty

Many of my Houston Asian rhinoplasty patients seek a surgeon who has experience with Asian rhinoplasty. Many Asian rhinoplasty patients seek surgery to build up a low bridge, refine the nasal tip, narrow the nostrils, or create a narrower nose altogether. It is important to know what type of materials to use to build up a nasal dorsum with Asian rhinoplasty. These could be cadaver rib, artificial implants, or the patient’s own cartilage. This depends on the surgeon’s comfort with the implant, the patient’s wishes, and the amount of graft needed.

Scarring is an important factor with Asian rhinoplasty as the skin is thicker and has a tendency to scar worse. Close attention to meticulous closure is essential and good postoperative scar care is necessary to obtain the best cosmetic result.
