About Asian Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty is one of the most complex and intricate facial procedures for a plastic surgeon. This type of surgery requires an artistic perspective, precise technique, and conservative approach to create a beautiful nose. Plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery has extensive experience and is skilled at performing Asian rhinoplasty. He understands the beautiful characteristics that make an Asian nose unique.
Often, most Asian patients prefer to restructure the bridge of the nose and reduce the base. Additionally, an Asian nose does not always have a large amount of cartilage, which requires Dr. Mang to carefully harvest cartilage and reshape the nose. This procedure can help patients balance their facial features and enhance their natural beauty. Dr. Mang pays close attention to your unique heritage traits so you can enhance the beauty of your ethnicity while creating slight changes to the cartilage, skin, and bone. Dr. Mang is dedicated to helping patients feel their best. Please call Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL to learn more Asian rhinoplasty.

It is important to set realistic expectations because the overall appearance of your face will change with rhinoplasty.

Asian Rhinoplasty Surgical Technique
Asian rhinoplasty is an extremely personalized procedure that we tailor to your aesthetic needs and goals. During your consultation with Dr. Mang, he will determine the best surgical technique based on your preference. Next, he utilizes 3D imaging to show how your nose will look after surgery. As an outpatient procedure, we perform Asian rhinoplasty with general anesthesia and in our private, AAAHC-accredited operating room. Dr. Mang uses an open technique, which places a small incision underneath the columella. This helps him reach the underlying structures of the nose.
If patients have a small amount of cartilage on their nose, we may harvest it from your rib or ear to strengthen or rebuild the nose to the desired shape. Cartilage grafts can also improve the bridge or the nasal tip. For patients with wide nasal bases, we make a small incision that is concealed by the alar groove. The alar groove is between the nose and your cheek. This method allows Dr. Mang to reduce the base of your nose.
What to Expect with Asian Rhinoplasty
Following your treatment, we will send you home to start your recovery. To help you heal, Dr. Mang might place a splint on your nose, which can stabilize it. Generally, rhinoplasty is not very painful, but you may have some mild side effects, such as bruising and swelling for the first couple of days. Dr. Mang will ask you to return for a follow-up appointment in about a week so he can remove any sutures or the splint from your nose. As you begin to heal, your breathing should improve and you can start to see your results. Each person is different, and the final results may take about four months before seeing a 75% decrease in swelling. Overall, it will take around 1 – 2 years before seeing your final results, but they will last for many years to come.
Asian Rhinoplasty FAQ
Is Asian rhinoplasty permanent?
Yes, just like all rhinoplasty procedures, once your nose is successfully healed, the results are permanent.
How is Asian rhinoplasty different from other kinds of rhinoplasty?
Asian rhinoplasty procedures differ from other types of rhinoplasty for two reasons: Asian physiology and Asian beauty aesthetics. Typically, Asians don't have as much cartilage in the nose as other races. This means that techniques that work well for Caucasian noses don't work for Asians and may cause complications. It also may require that cartilage from the ribs or ears be used during the procedure. When aesthetics are considered, Caucasian rhinoplasty procedures are usually to reduce the size of a nose considered "too large." In contrast, Asian rhinoplasty procedures often enhance the size and shape of the nose. That's why Dr. Mang combines an artist's touch with a physician's understanding of Asian physiology to create results that are subtle, graceful, and natural-looking.
Is Asian rhinoplasty painful?
The first 1 – 3 days after rhinoplasty can be the most difficult with some patients experiencing mild discomfort and pain from having a surgical procedure done on a very delicate facial feature. Dr. Mang may prescribe pain medications, but many patients will do just fine with over-the-counter pain relievers. Some patients may experience:
- Swelling or "puffiness"
How long does Asian rhinoplasty take to heal?
The initial recovery phase after an Asian rhinoplasty procedure is normally 1 – 2 weeks, after which you will be able to begin resuming your normal activities. Full recovery can take as long as 9 – 12 months or longer.
