Asian Nasal Tip
The tip has a weak underlying cartilage and thick skin. In particular, patients request to increase the length and projection of the tip. The nose surgeon makes use of cartilage grafts for building the nasal tip to a desired shape. The grafts are strategically placed within the tip to structurally support it and ensure long lasting results. The procedure is also meant to support breathing. Tissue grafts can be taken from your ear, septum or rib.
Asian Nasal Bridge
Asian nasal bridge tends to be less defined and lower positioned. Typical change involves augmenting the bridge. It often requires using various synthetic implants or organic grafts. There are specific changes made by each type of material used. Your cosmetic surgeon needs to be well-versed in the technique and be able to customize and adjust regular rhinoplasty plastic surgery approach for suiting the unique needs of an Asian face.
The shape of nostrils depends on the country of origin of the Asian patient. Typically, surgeons require a great deal of time for discussing and examining this particular nose area. Only a few rhinoplasty patients actually need nostril narrowing. This part of the procedure needs to be performed with great care for preventing unsightly scarring. You need to remember that often nostrils narrow naturally over a period of time when the tip cartilage is improved.
