I am Asian American and would like to undergo rhinoplasty. Are there any specific risks or issues associated with Asians?
Asian rhinoplasty or nose jobs are common ethnic procedures that I perform. The risks that are associated with Asian rhinoplasty are the same as those for any other nose job. One of the only differences with ethnic rhinoplasty, which includes Asian rhinoplasty, is thick skin. You can make the nasal tip appear smaller, however you usually will not achieve a very well-defined, outlined nasal tip. Patients have to understand that it also takes time for them to heal following any rhinoplasty. On the web site there is a video which explains all the risks associated with rhinoplasty surgery.
