Asian Rhinoplasty Dallas

Expert on Asian-Face Textbook CoverAn Asian rhinoplasty in Dallas is a specialized version of the rhinoplasty (nose job) surgical procedure designed for patients of Asian descent. The main goal during an Asian rhinoplasty is to improve the nose’s shape, size, and overall look while keeping its dimensions natural relative to the Asian face. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sam Lam has helped patients of all ethnicities feel confident about their look. Being hyper-focused on facial plastic surgery, he has spent more than 20 years carefully developing multiple rhinoplasty strategies to meet the unique needs of his patients. By refusing to take a one-size-fits-all approach, Dr. Lam is able to ensure that his patients’ results are suitable for their particular face.

Unique Considerations in Asian Rhinoplasty

The reasons that patients are interested in getting a rhinoplasty are often similar. A prominent bump on the ridge, a downward-facing tip, large nostrils, and other aesthetic concerns can all play a role in a patient seeking treatment.  But, how these symptoms are treated is different for each individual. During the Asian rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Lam will usually make adjustments to the nose so that it adheres to the following specifications:
  • Flat bridge that stays low, with the radix (top of the nose slope) beginning at or near the bottom of the eye 
  • Broader, less defined tip
  • Wider base 
  • Overall less projection but with thicker skin

Good Candidates for Asian Rhinoplasty

Asian rhinoplasties are meant for patients of East Asian or Southeast Asian origin, such as those from China, Japan, Korea, and some areas of Polynesia. It would not be ideal for patients of Indian descent, for example. However, Dr. Lam is proud to offer specialized rhinoplasties for patients of all ethnicities and genders

The Asian Rhinoplasty Procedure

asian rhinoplastyDr. Lam will perform your Asian rhinoplasty procedure at the fully accredited Lam Facial Plastic Surgery Center. General anesthesia will be administered for your comfort. He’ll then make an inverted V-shaped incision in the skin between the nostrils to allow access to the nose’s underlying structures. asian rhinoplastySince silicone nasal implants would make the bridge too high and the tip too pointy (as well as the nose in general look too artificial), Dr. Lam does not use them during an Asian rhinoplasty. Instead, he prefers a CSEG, or caudal septal extension graft. This technique involves inserting a diced rib graft to move the nasal tip forward and to narrow the outer nostrils. Dr. Lam will utilize multiple other advanced methods to enhance the nose’s various contours even further, such as the lateral tune-in flap technique. Once everything is complete, he will close the incision with dissolvable sutures.

The Recovery Process

To ensure your nose heals correctly and adheres to its new shape, Dr. Lam will likely have you wear a nasal splint for about a week. You will probably also have small packs inside your nose after surgery, but you can easily remove them the next day. Some minor swelling may occur early on during your recovery, but most patients return to work after about a week. Results will gradually become apparent over the next few weeks.

How Much Does Asian Rhinoplasty Cost?

Since each individual’s rhinoplasty is different (even among those of the same gender and ethnicity), the price of a treatment plan can vary. Factors influencing the cost are the extent of changes needed and desired, materials used, anesthesia fees, and other factors.
