A Customized Treatment: Asian Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Ethnic rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to create a natural-looking nose that reflects the characteristics of the patients' race.

Ethnic rhinoplasty treatments have increased in popularity in recent years and have started to be in demand for nose jobs field. By using different techniques, people's noses are intervened carefully and the desired result is achieved.

People from different ethnic backgrounds have different facial features and nose structures. These differences indicate that ethnic rhinoplasty does not meet a standard for every patient's face. For example, if you are from Asian countries, your nose job operation is performed by considering the specific features of your nose and your aesthetic expectations.

In our country, Asian ethnic rhinoplasty differs from the traditional nose job procedure. If you are in this patient group, bone removal and nasal cartilage correction procedures are mostly applied within the scope of your surgery.

Your procedure is usually about creating or enlarging your nose bridge, as well as reducing the base of it or nostrils. However, even in the case of Asian ethnic rhinoplasty, each patient may have different expectations and needs.

For example, patients from Southeast Asia want their nose bridges to be lengthened, while the East Asian patient group does not prefer this procedure. Dr. Fatih Mehmet Hanege is waiting for candidates to his clinic to offer his expertise in ethnic rhinoplasty to his Asian patients.

What are Asian Ethnic Rhinoplasty Techniques?

Open and closed surgical techniques used in classical nose job are also available for Asian type rhinoplasty. Many Asian patients who are candidates for this treatment want to increase their nose volume.

  • Open technique: In this method, the surgeon has almost complete control over your nose. With the help of wide viewing angle, it is possible to make safe and easy shaping, to control bleeding in a healthy way, and to see your nasal tissues in their natural positions. The biggest difference with the closed rhinoplasty technique is a minimal incision made in the middle part of your nose, in the area called the "columella". This incision is indistinct and can be closed with the special suture materials without causing any aesthetic problems.
  • Closed technique: This procedure is usually preferred if there is no need for much operation on your nose. It can be said that the number of surgeons using this method is limited. It may be tempting not to make an incision in the surgery, but the high success rate recorded with the open rhinoplasty approach has clearly enabled this procedure to consolidate its place in the field of rhinoplasty.

Because it is a specialized surgical approach, Asian ethnic rhinoplasty may also take longer to heal than with a conventional nose job.

  • Keeping your head up while sleeping or resting,
  • Applying a cold compress to your surgery area,
  • Protecting your nose against impacts,
  • Avoiding heavy physical activities for a while,
  • Staying away a flu infection for a certain period of time,
  • Consuming foods that do not contain sodium,

In addition, they will definitely prescribe painkillers for any possible pain or discomfort you may experience. The splint attached to your nose stays for an average of 1 week and is then carefully removed with an examination.

During this period, it is very important that you do not let the nasal packing come into contact with water. In your operation, self-disappearing stitches are used. Swelling and bruises begin to disappear within 3-4 days. Complete recovery is expected within 1 year at the latest.
