Asian rhinoplasty

In a very variable way from one patient to another, Asian patients have peculiarities of their nose that are more or less present depending on the case and more or less difficult to correct. To do this, specific rhinoplasty techniques have been developed and are grouped under the term of ethnic rhinoplasty.

The majority of patients do not wish to lose their origins by this intervention. What they expect from ethnic rhinoplasty is a correction of important specifics just like any cosmetic rhinoplasty.

In this context, implants are often used. They can be of different origins, the silicone of which can be used to better define its edge and its point. Injectable fillers can also be used in some cases.


Performed under local or general anesthesia, the surgery has a variable duration depending on the corrections to be made.

The surgeon combines traditional rhinoplasty techniques with reconstruction techniques depending on the anatomical challenges and goals of the patient. Ethnic rhinoplasty requires a wider range of surgical skills than traditional rhinoplasty.

  1. The skin. The first constraint is the thickness of the skin, which is often significative. Thus, the skin masks the contours of the underlying cartilages. The work on the cartilages must therefore be very important so that the new reliefs are visible. It is possible to partially thin out too thick skin.
  2. The tip and back of the nose: refine it and increase its projection. The tip of the nose is often too wide and flattened, because its cartilages (alar cartilages) are often too developed and too weak. Rhinoplasty can therefore achieve:
    • The excision of excess cartilage
    • Sutures of the cartilages to fold them back and increase their projection
    • Cartilage grafts on the tip, to better define and project it.
    • Bone or silicone grafts on the nasal bridge to project it more
  3. The nostril wings: reduce them. Most often, the wings of the nose are too long, flat with too wide a nostril threshold. Ethnic rhinoplasty removes the excess nostril.
