Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the more popular cosmetic procedures that many people undergo. It’s popular worldwide, as the nose is one of the central focal points of the face. However, most rhinoplasty is not for Asian ethnicities as it reduces the structure of the nasal bridge and cartilage. For many Asian ethnicities, building up the bridge of the nose and creating a slender tip is the ideal goal.
Dr. Philip Young understands beauty and unique facial structures better than most. As an award-winning facial plastic surgeon with many years of experience and publications on Asian rhinoplasty, he understands the importance of maintaining your beautiful ethnicity while enhancing the nose. Through advanced techniques, precision, and years of research, Dr. Young provides the best Asian rhinoplasty in Bellevue & Kirkland.
When we think of rhinoplasty, we often think of reducing large noses, removing unwanted lumps, or narrowing a broad nasal bridge. This is common for many patients, as it’s typically for Caucasians or other ethnicities to have wide nasal bridges. However, traditional rhinoplasty excludes the unique facial features of many Asian ethnicities, as their facial structure can pose different cosmetic challenges.
Asian rhinoplasty, Kirkland, has a different goal: to build up the bridge of the nose and create a slender tip without decreasing the natural beauty of Asian features. Dr. Young takes measured and careful steps to ensure a stunning nose for every Asian patient.
With Dr. Young, Asian rhinoplasty, Kirkland, maintains the integrity of your ethnic features while providing a slender and structured nose. There are a few ways an ethnic nose job can help enhance your features and provide a structured nose. The reason Asian rhinoplasty can be a challenge is that the procedure actually adds to the nose rather than reduces the nasal structure.
The reason Asian rhinoplasty is so uncommon is due to the use of implants in the nasal structure. In other countries, many have implants inserted into their nose to create a prominent and refined profile, but these are sometimes considered unsafe as extrusion can occur. If you’re wondering what that means, don’t worry; you aren’t alone.
Implant extrusion occurs when the body rejects or doesn’t form to an implant, and the implant begins to extrude out of the skin. While this is rare because the nose tip is full of sensitive tissue and cartilage, the risks are slightly higher with a rhinoplasty implant. However, Dr. Young uses advanced techniques to avoid this implant extrusion and create timeless, elegant rhinoplasty for Asian ethnicities.
Because Asian rhinoplasty, Bellevue & Kirkland, often involves creating more structure in the nasal bridge and a finer nose tip, many surgeons use silicone implants in the dorsal (bridge) and the tip of the nose. However, silicone implants in the tip can lead to implant extrusion or other complications. Dr. Young has spent years dedicated to creating safe, stunning Asian rhinoplasty through various methods.
Because the risk of implant extrusion is prominently due to the tip of the nose, Dr. Young often grafts cartilage from other areas for the nose tip. He can take cartilage from the ears or rip it to provide a safe, effective nose-top implant. This method alone significantly reduces the risk of implant extrusion, as the body accepts and forms the patient’s own cartilage.
The nasal bridge does not reject implants like the nasal tip. For this reason, Dr. Young has two options for nasal bridge implants that will create a seamless harmony between the nose, brows, and eyes. These options include:
Dr. Young uses a combination of natural cartilage for the tip of the nose and Medpor implants for the bridge to create low-risk and highly effective Asian rhinoplasty. This method significantly decreases the risk of implant extrusion and helps patients achieve their goals safely.
Dr. Young can also reconstruct and correct nasal bridge and tip implants. Through a delicate process, Dr. Young can remove your old implant and reconstruct the nasal bridge and tip for a more refined and harmonious look. Dr. Young has performed successful Asian rhinoplasty revisions for thousands of patients and works to create a symmetrical nose for every patient.
