The nose is an important part of your facial appearance and ethnicity. The size and shape can enhance your other features or detract from their harmony. With some ethnicities, the nose size and shape can overwhelm the face. With Asian noses, it can be just the opposite. The size and shape can be too small or flat. Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery has the artistic eye and surgical skill to reshape ethnic noses to a more pleasant size and shape. We offer Asian rhinoplasty and other ethnic nose jobs at our clinic in Beverly Hills.
The most common complaint with the Asian nose is the height of the nasal bridge. The nose can appear flat, which may create an imbalance in the facial features. Other complaints regarding the Asian nose include nostrils that are too large or a nasal tip that is undefined. The goal of Asian rhinoplasty is to retain the beautiful elements of the Asian nose with slight alterations to create a more desirable ethnic shape. Adding more height to the nasal bridge with cartilage grafts or stents, reducing nostril size or reshaping the nasal tip may all be included to reshape the nose.
Ethnic Nose Jobs
There are ethnic nose traits that can be overstated and create aesthetic imbalance. A Middle Eastern nose with a pronounced nasal bridge or overly wide nostrils on an African nose can be distracting. The goal of any ethnic nose job surgery is to retain the ethnicity of the nose while addressing the specific features that are undesirable by the patient. When it comes to rhinoplasty, subtle changes are best to retain the structure and stability of the nasal structure, while still creating an aesthetically-pleasing version.
If you are considering a change to your nose shape and want to ensure you retain the ethnicity of your facial features, contact us at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills to schedule your consultation. Dr. Anastasatos has created exceptional results with his Asian rhinoplasty and ethnic nose job procedures.
