RHINOPLASTY

Nose Job (Rhinoplasty)

Caucasian noses most of the time require reduction rhinoplasty, with the nasal bones reduced in height and tip tripod structure supported with strong cartilage pieces harvested from self. On the other hand, Asian noses are more delicate and more complicated in anatomy, which require more specific knowledge and better maneuvers to obtain satisfactory results.

Combination Nose Surgery

It is becoming a new trend for Asian people to go through a comprehensive combination surgery in order to correct the nose shape. Any or all of the above-mentioned steps/approaches could be chosen and carried out for the desired nose shape.

Rib Cartilage Nose Job

 

Due to its abundance, rib cartilages could be utilized to correct both nose bridge insufficiency and the tip/columela complex. Although at this point of time, the revision rate remains high.

Columella Veiling

Columella veiling/columella show is very easy to correct, provided that the surgeon knows how to correct it. Our doctor utilizes an extremely minimally invasive approach to augment the columella, for either its thickness or its vertical supporting strength, mostly via an intra-oral approach. The result is virtually no visible scar from anywhere and the recovery is super-fast!

Canine Fossa Depression

 

Canine fossa depression (base of the nose deficiency/depression) can be treated with fat grafting if minor, or with self-cartilage grafting and or Alloderm if moderate to severe. A combination of all three approaches could be used for even better and much more coordinated aesthetic correction.

Nasal Alar Reduction

Nasal alar reduction works to shrink the size of the nostrils. Dr. Yu uses an internal approach, by making incisions at the lateral aspect of the nasal sill to remove a wedge of tissues, including the corresponding nasal floor. After the mucosa is trimmed, the floor tissue can actually be turned down to augment the canine fossa (base of nose) right then and there. At the same time, the nasal alar is brought in to cinch down on the size of the nostril. The recovery is fast and the scars are barely detectable.
