Asian Nose

What our patients say

R

I was involved in an automobile accident last May 2013. Unfortunately, I slammed my face on the steering wheel causing serious damage to my nose. The outcome from the emergency room left me with 5 stitches on the bridge of my nose, and the tip of my nose was missing due to the severe impact of the accident. I could not believe the damage, it made it difficult look in the mirror at myself. Read More > >

As humans, we are highly conscious when it comes to even the tiniest details in facial features. This is not because we are vain, but because the face is where a large percentage of our communication comes from. The features of the face all work together to create an overall image that tells the world a lot about you. When the face is imbalanced, we may be sending the wrong messages. At the very least, imbalance in facial features can make one feel less satisfied about his or her appearance.

One such facial feature that many people find important is the nose. During his eighteen years of experience in plastic, reconstructive and ethnic surgery, Dr. Kwan has seen many Asian patients who are unhappy with the size and shape of their nose.

Comparing the shape and size of the ethnic nose with the Caucasian nose, there are very few similarities in most cases. Though ethnic nose surgery is not about recreating a perfectly Caucasian nose on an ethnic face, many of our Asian patients come to us seeking better shape and projection in this facial feature. The general principles which govern Asian rhinoplasty are vastly similar to that of a Caucasian procedure. However, the characteristics of the Asian nose call for a varied approach and different technical execution, two aspects of Asian plastic surgery that Dr. Kwan has mastered in his cosmetic surgery career.

Certain cases of the Asian nose reshaping may require reducing and narrowing the nasal bone to create a more attractive shape. A commonly used solution for a more aesthetically pleasing nose is nasal implants, which have an excellent track record. They are known to be precise, safe and nearly free of complications.

Dr. Kwan's consultation process is a very elaborate one. In order to ensure maximum patient satisfaction, Dr. Kwan spends time determining the right size, thickness and shape of the nose. Dr. Kwan uses both his technical experience and artistic eye to ensure the right choices are made. This will make sure that the nose is attractive on its own and in combination with other facial features. The measurements are used to customize the implant. Dr. Kwan makes sure that the thickness of the implant is sufficient enough to maintain the ethnic identity of the patient.
