Asian Rhinoplasty is the specific practice of performing plastic surgery on people with Asian descents noses. For different ethnicities there are different ways of performing rhinoplasty, due to the common facial profiles of people from the same race. While all people of all ethnicities might want to get rhinoplasty performed on them, this is the practice of surgery on a predominantly Asian face, with the intent of keeping that nose in conjunction with the other facial features in allowing the ethnicity to show through the plastic surgery. The prime purpose of many asian nose reshaping rhinoplasty is to make the nose more defined, where a lot of people of Asian origins have flatter noses. The Asian nose is quite different from the Caucasian nose in terms of shape.
One of the most common procedures for Asian rhinoplasty is to lift the bridge of the nose higher to enable wearing of glasses. Silicone implants into the bridge of the nose allow for this procedure to be completed as well as using cartilage grafting, yet Asians do not usually have enough cartilage in their noses to be able to graft, so it is sometimes taken from other parts of the body, such as the chest wall near the ribs.Some surgeons prefer to use a different substance called Gore-Tex as an implant which is softer, stronger and does not produce the translucent effect of silicone. The tips of Asians noses are another common surgical target for Asian Nose Job Rhinoplasty. Keeping them slightly rounded and less defined helps keep the ethnic appearance but is one of the more complicated and technical procedures. Natural tissue may also be used during this phase of rhinoplasty.
Features of Asian Nose Job include lengthening the nose, making the bridge of the nose higher and reshaping or adding to the tip. All of the aforementioned procedures have the goal in mind of altering the nose while still keeping the unique Asian identity. The benefit of Asian Nose Reshaping is that it allows the patient to change a unique racial profile into something more pleasing to the eye, while still seeking to appear to be of the ethnic group that they originate from.
