What are the benefits for Asians who undergo rhinoplasty?
In typical Asian facial anatomy, the nose is usually flat and small in proportion to the rest of the face. The result is poor facial aesthetics and a very typical Asian ethnic appearance. Due to the flat nose, it appears as if the eyes are bulging out. The complete symmetry of the face is compromised and the entire face looks flattened.
Also, in any Asian patients, the tip of the nose is droopy, round and bulky. The traditional idea of facial beauty is to have a sharp nose with a well defined tip. Therefore, in absence of a sharp nose, the overall look of the face appears dull and flat.
Rhinoplasty is a great plastic surgery procedure to help such patients improve their nose and enhance their facial aesthetics. For patients with a flat nose, rhinoplasty helps to build the bridge of the nose with the use of an implant. That makes the face appear more symmetrical and the eyes more proportionate to the rest of the face.
The nose bridge helps Asian patients to wear spectacles or sunglasses more comfortably. In absence of a strong nose bridge, many Asians find it difficult to wear glasses. When the nose tip is more defined, it gives a more chiseled appearance to the face.
The nose is the most prominent and central point of the face. Therefore, it plays a key role in determining the symmetry and balance of the face. It is important that nose surgery should be performed by a surgeon who specializes in Asian rhinoplasty. The procedure must not compromise the ethnicity of the patient, and yet it should produce a substantive improvement in the facial profile. Only an experienced surgeon can achieve this goal perfectly.
