Asian Rhinoplasty

| Friday, January 21st, 2011

Compared to other ethnic groups Asian nose often lacks projection in the tip and is more wide in the nasal bridge. Surgery involves inserting the synthetic implant (such as Silastic or Gortex) under local anesthesia, which is a technically simple procedure. Some patients might not be ready for surgery and non-surgical rhinoplasty is a quick and affordable alternative. Here’s another case of nose augmentation with Radiesse semi-permanent filler. Results last about a year.

Before: nasal tip lacks projection                    After: better projection of the nasal tip
