Asian Augmentation Rhinoplasty
Asian Rhinoplasty in Costa Mesa / Los Angeles Asian Nose Surgery, Orange County
The surgical procedure that can heighten the bridge or tip of the nose using biocompatible or autologous materials encompases the majority of rhinoplasty surgery. Due to Asians often having more of a flat nose, this can make the face look dull and a bit flat. Heightening the nose can often make the face appear slimmer, thus altering one’s impression.
The rhinoplasty of a flat nose not only heightens the nose but it is done considering one’s facial structure as well as discovering the correct height.
The Surgery Method
Usually incisions will be made within the nostril so that scars are not visible. Once the incision is made, space (pocket) is created underneath the periosteum (the tough and thin curtain surrounding the bones) of the nasal bone in to affix the implant. Once the implant or autologous’ shape and height are curved according to each patient, it is then placed into the pocket.
If the tip of the nose or the rounded sides require alteration, there may be additional surgeries necessary. Sometimes, during surgery, an incision is made on the columella nasi, the nasal structure is exposed completely while correction of the bone and cartilage is correctly done as per the patient’s desires.
