Procedure

Asian Rhinoplasty is a technically challenging and delicate procedure that requires a skillful plastic surgeon who is both meticulous and has a keen eye for detail. However, the most important aspect of performing a Rhinoplasty is not the procedure itself, but to have a clear idea of the realistic expectations of the patient. A beautiful shape of the nose is important to a person because it stands at the center of the face, giving harmony to the overall facial appearance. The procedures generally enlarge the nose first, in an effort to balance the width of the face, and complement the distance between the eyes while lengthening the comparatively short Asian nose.

Korean rhinoplasty is different due to thicker, more sebaceous skin, flatter bridge, wider base of Asian noses. Traditionally, the Korean noses have flat bridges, with less definition, wider nostrils and/or a minimal tip. Most ethnic patients who want to redefine their nose with rhinoplasty wish to enhance their profile while creating a more defined, stronger bridge and tip. Common requests from Korean patients also include having a narrow nostrils.

The key component to altering the tip of your nose is to augment and strengthen the Columella (the area of skin and cartilage that divides the nostrils) first. This provides a stronger foundation for successfully defining and augmenting the tip of your nose.

Candidates

You may be a good candidate for a Korean nose job if you are unhappy with the way your nose looks and it makes you self conscious.

The purpose of Asian aesthetic surgery is not to replicate the look of any other ethnicity on Asian patients; the purpose is to enhance the features that patients already have. It is extremely important to consider the relative facial attributes in order to achieve the “ideal” nose for each patient.

Most NJ candidates do not like the way their nose and profile looks. Dr. Kaplan has performed many successful Korean nose job surgeries for patients from Palisades Park, Fort Lee, Edgewater, Cliffside Park, Leonia and other areas of Bergen County in NJ.

Recovery

Full recovery of rhinoplasty may take up to 6-9 months. For many Korean patients, the first few days after their nose job surgery are the most difficult. During this time, patients may experience mild discomfort. Dr. Kaplan and his staff will provide you with post-operative instructions and pain medication if required. Among some of the issues Korean patients may deal with during their rhinoplasty recovery period are:

  • Headaches
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Nosebleeds

Consultation

Although rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly requested facial plastic surgical procedures, it is a complex operation that requires precise expertise. Custom-tailored rhinoplasty treatment plans take all aspects of a patient’s identity into consideration. No two faces are alike and rhinoplasty procedures shouldn’t be either. During your consultation all of your options will be assessed in order to help provide you with not just “the perfect nose”, but the perfect nose for you!

Compared to other ethnic groups, the tip of the Asian nose tolerates slightly less definition and projection.
