NYC area doctor describes Asian nose surgery

Patients of Asian descent may need to see a plastic surgeon who has experience in providing ethnic surgery to maintain their heritage. Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD of the NYC area can help with many facial surgeries geared towards patients of Asian descent. Many Asian patients come to the practice of Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD to have their nose made larger while still staying compatible with the overall look of their face.

Asian nose surgery, also referred to as Asian rhinoplasty, is a surgery used to build up the bridge and the tip of the nose in a way that is consistent with the Asian appearance. For example, the tip of the nose of an Asian patient is often much less defined and projected outward. Knowing the structure of a typical ethnic face and having an artistic eye is necessary to make Asian nose surgery look natural yet beautiful.

Rhinoplasty is a surgery that is performed under general anesthesia. This is done to maximize patient comfort throughout the procedure. This procedure is done as an outpatient surgery and patients should arrange transportation home after it has been performed and they awaken from the anesthetics. Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD will also provide patients with after care instructions and calls to follow up with patients within 48 hours of their procedure.

Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD is committed to helping patients of Asian descent maintain their ethnic appearance. Knowing the characteristics of specific ethnicities is important to ensure the work looks completely natural and maintains one’s overall appearance. Asian noses are different from Caucasian noses due to the height of the bridge, the nostrils, and the width of the tip. Patients of Asian descent may visit a plastic surgeon to address the height and projection of the nose while also refining the tip of the nose and the nostrils. Maintaining cultural aesthetics is of vital importance to Dr. Edmund Kwan. MD.

If you live within the NYC area and are interested in visiting a plastic surgery practice that can enhance the Asian appearance with Asian nose surgery, contact Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD today to book your initial consultation visit to educate yourself on the procedure and the ways in which his practice can rejuvenate your look.
