Asian Rhinoplasty DC
Asian rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that reshapes the nose for patients who have features common in a range of Asian countries. An Asian rhinoplasty is a highly individualized procedure performed to enhance the nose structure, so it looks natural and in harmony and balance with your other facial features.
A rhinoplasty, when performed by a highly-skilled plastic surgeon, is never a “one size fits all” procedure. Knowledge of nasal structure, along with advanced surgical technique, make it possible to customize nose reshaping to enhance the facial features women or men who have uniquely Asian features.
Is Asian Rhinoplasty right for me?
Any adult in good health who wants to alter the shape, size, or projection of the nose can benefit from rhinoplasty. Some of the issues that can be corrected include:
- Wide tip
- Round or large tip
- Flat bridge
- Wide nostrils
- Asymmetrical nose
Virtually any aspect of the nose that you believe is affecting your appearance, and making you look less attractive, can be resolved with a custom Asian rhinoplasty. Minute adjustments can be made by adding or reducing the volume of the nose bridge, reshaping nostrils, or other alterations to bring more harmony to your facial features. If you have a deviated septum, a septoplasty can be performed during you’re the same surgical procedure to improve breathing, sleep quality, and overall health.
What makes Asian rhinoplasty different?
Patients of Asian descent tend to seek out rhinoplasty to improve facial appearance. The anatomy and bone structure of Asian noses often differs greatly from those of other ethnicities. The cartilage in the tip tends to be softer, and the skin around the nostrils may be thicker and sebaceous.
How Asian Rhinoplasty is Performed
There are two forms of rhinoplasty: open and closed. Closed rhinoplasty involves performing surgical corrections from within small incisions inside the nose, resulting in no visible scarring. An open rhinoplasty procedure involves an incision at the base of the cartilage separating your nostrils. The scar that develops there will be concealed within the natural contours of your nose and is generally not noticed by others.
Once the incision is made, the cartilage and bone in your nose can be altered or removed to achieve the desired nose shape. In some cases, a graft or implant can be used to add volume to the bridge of the nose. Rhinoplasty is typically performed as an outpatient procedure and you a free to return home after surgery is complete but will be unable to drive – you will need another adult to assist you.
Recovery & Results
The recovery from an Asian rhinoplasty will vary based on the extent of the modifications that were made to the nose structure. You will need to plan for several days off work and can resume most of your usual activities within two weeks of the surgery. Your nose shape will continue to improve as the months pass and the residual swelling disappears.
After the initial swelling goes down, you will be able to experience your enhanced nose shape. When an Asian rhinoplasty has been performed with skill and meticulous attention to detail, your nose will flatter your other features for a more appealing, attractive appearance.

"I have never felt so confident. Dr. Chang completely changed how I saw myself in the mirror. I was terribly self conscious of my nose from my youth and finally decided to go through with the surgery. Not only was it inexpensive compared to the other three doctors I contacted, the before and after pictures of patients were also much better looking than the others! The whole process of surgery and recovery was quick and pretty much painless. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting cosmetic surgery. It really made me a happier person." - Catherine M.
"My son was in a terrible accident with most of the bones in his face and skull broken... I don't know what I would have done without Dr Chang!! My son is fully recovered and back to his old self again. I love Dr Chang, he will be in my prayers for the rest of my life. Thank you!" - Elizabeth A.
"I cannot say enough about my surgery with Dr. Chang! I had full facial Rejuvenation including a facelift brow lift and upper eyelids done 4 months ago. I also had a chemical peel to my lower eyelids and mouth. They was barely any pain and I was back to work the next week! I am so thrilled and my friends are so impressed. I cannot say enough about my experience! He is both caring and an amazing surgeon! Thank you so much!" - Cathy W.
The entire experience and outcome was everything I hoped for and I cannot thank Dr. Chang enough! He is a true pro and I recommend 100% without reservation!" - Ashley R.
"I went to Dr. Chang to correct the damage done to my breasts from pregnancy and breastfeeding. He went above and beyond to make me comfortable and to explain exactly what the procedures (lift + implants) would entail. He was extremely responsive and truly understood the look that I was trying to achieve - full, natural for my frame, and with minimal scarring. I'm only two days out from surgery and I'm already loving my results. I am so glad that I chose Dr. Chang to restore my chest to its pre-baby appearance. I actually think they are going to be better than they ever were before I had kids!" - Emily L.
