The aim of rhinoplasty, or a nose job, is to reconstruct a nose that looks natural but has the desired qualities the patient is looking for
Conducting a nose job on people of varying ethnicities can be complicated because of how their natural nasal structure might compare to the aesthetic they are striving for. Asian rhinoplasty differs from Caucasian rhinoplasty and from African-American rhinoplasty because of the characteristics of the ethnic features, but also because of the anatomy of the facial tissue.
Asian facial cartilage tends to be weaker, meaning it cannot stand up to extreme changes in reconstruction
SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR THE ASIAN NOSE
There are different techniques for performing Asian rhinoplasty, some of which include silicone and other foreign implants, some of which use ear cartilage, and some of which reshape the existing nasal cartilage.
While most Caucasian and African-American rhinoplasty surgeries aim to reduce the look of the nose, Asian rhinoplasty often seeks to enlarge certain aspects of it. Many Asian noses are fairly flat at the bridge, so a rhinoplasty might target heightening the bridge to raise the nose.
Other alterations commonly made to Asian noses are defining the tip or narrowing the nostrils (although this depends on the individual’s natural nostrils). Many Asian noses have less defined tips than people of other ethnicities, so they often want a more accentuated nasal tip.
As with other ethnic rhinoplasty surgery, it is important that the reconstructed nose is still consistent with the facial features of the individual. Techniques commonly used for Caucasian reconstructions are often problematic on Asian nose jobs, so the facial plastic surgeon needs to be aware of the anatomy of the nose and how to best recreate it so it still suits the individual and their other ethnic features. The final product needs to look natural, not like it was reconstructed, and certainly not fake.
Dr. Torgerson is a Facial Cosmetic Surgeon with years of expertise in operating on people of varying ethnic backgrounds
WHY CHOOSE DR. TORGERSON?
Rhinoplasty is one of Dr. Torgerson’s specialities, and he operates regularly in his own government-approved Toronto Surgical Facility.
Many people find their first rhinoplasty left them with undesired results. Rhinoplasty can take up to a year to fully take shape, but especially in the event of a badly done surgery, many Asian rhinoplasty patients find themselves coming back for revisions. Sometimes the results are not as extreme as the patient wanted; sometimes they are overdone or done to another ethnicity’s standards. In these instances, it is crucial that they find a surgeon who knows how to perform the surgery right the first time. Dr. Torgerson understands the issues many Asians have with their natural noses, and he knows how to properly reconstruct the nose to look like it is natural, but with all of the desired qualities the patient is seeking.
Getting a nose job should leave the patient with increased self-esteem and confidence, knowing that they have the facial features they like. Patients consult Dr. Torgerson to discuss exactly what they want from their surgery, and together a plan is created to achieve the desired look. After the procedure, there will be swelling and even some discomfort, but once the post-operation side-effects go away, the patient will be pleased with their new nose and will be able to present themselves with confidence. If you’d like to schedule a free Asian Rhinoplasty consultation with Dr. Torgerson, please contact our office today!
