An Approach Tailored to You
The shape of a person's nose is often influenced by their ethnicity. In the case of individuals of Asian descent, common concerns regarding the nose's appearance include the breadth of the nostrils, nasal bone width, tip shape, and the height of the bridge. At Brobst Facial Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics, our skilled surgeon, Dr. Robert "Bo" Brobst, offers Asian rhinoplasty in Plano to address these cosmetic concerns and help our Asian patients achieve their desired nose shape.
Refine and Define
Asian rhinoplasty, a subtype of "ethnic" rhinoplasty, is a type of plastic surgery of the nose that is specifically tailored to the unique facial characteristics of individuals of Asian descent. This surgery can address concerns specific to the Asian nose, such as a flat or wide nasal bridge, thick nasal skin, and a round or upturned nasal tip. The goal of Asian rhinoplasty is to create a nose that looks natural and harmonizes with the rest of the face while maintaining the patient's ethnic identity.
There are many factors to consider when it comes to plastic surgery, especially when it comes to the nose. We understand that for a procedure to have the best results, it should look natural on the face, be balanced with the other features, and respect the ethnicity of our patients. Our goals are not to westernize anyone's face, but rather to commit to achieving your desired results, whether through procedures like Asian Rhinoplasty or others, in a harmonious and balanced manner that allows your distinctive features to shine.
Celebrate Your Individuality
With Asian Rhinoplasty Plano patients can expect several potential benefits, including:
A good candidate for Asian rhinoplasty is an individual of Asian descent who is unhappy with the appearance of their nose, is in good overall health, and has considered nasal change for an extended amount of time. It is essential for patients to have realistic expectations and to be in good mental health to ensure a successful outcome. A conversation with Dr. Brobst can help determine whether Asian rhinoplasty is a good option for you.

Change your future
At Dr. Brobst Facial Plastic Surgery in Plano Asian Rhinoplasty is customized to address the unique concerns and goals of each patient, making the details of the procedure vary accordingly. In general, however, the process may involve:
The surgeon may use a combination of surgical techniques, such as rasping, osteotomies, and/or cartilage grafts, to achieve the desired results.
Recovery from Asian rhinoplasty is generally similar to recovery from other types of rhinoplasty surgery. After the procedure, patients may experience bruising and discomfort around the nose and eyes. These symptoms should subside within the first or two. Most patients are able to return to desk work and other light activities within a week, but strenuous activities and exercise should be avoided for several weeks. It is important for patients to follow their surgeon's instructions for post-operative care to ensure a smooth and successful recovery.
The full results of Asian rhinoplasty may take several months to even years to become apparent. This is because it can take time for the swelling to resolve fully and for the final shape of the nose to become evident. In most cases, patients will see a significant improvement in the form of their nose within the first few weeks after surgery, but the final results take time as the skin contracts around the new shape. Every person is different, and the rate of healing and the final outcome will vary depending on the individual's unique characteristics and the specific details of the procedure. Patients need to be patient and follow their surgeon's instructions for post-operative care to ensure the best possible results.
After undergoing Asian rhinoplasty, following your doctor's instructions for post-operative care is essential. This typically includes avoiding activities that can strain your nose excessively, such as heavy lifting or strenuous exercise, for several weeks. It is also important to keep your head elevated while sleeping and to avoid blowing your nose for several weeks. You should also avoid exposing your nose to intense sun for several months, as UV radiation can make the otherwise inconspicuous incision more visible. Dr. Brobst may also recommend using ointment, saline, antihistamines, or nasal steroid spray to keep your nasal passages healing well and free from reactive airway conditions that can delay the desired outcome. It is also important to avoid activities that can increase your blood pressure, blood thinners (Aspirin, NSAIDS, and Fish oil products), vasoconstrictors (such as Afrin and smoking), and direct trauma, as these can interfere with healing.
