Can the Nose Become Narrow With Asian Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a nose reshaping cosmetic surgery in Atlanta, GA. It also can treat breathing or functional issues for some patients. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang, a board-certified plastic surgeon, works hard to ensure his patients get the results they’re looking for. During a consultation, he can learn about your goals for surgery and determine whether Asian rhinoplasty or traditional surgery will work best for you.
What is an Asian rhinoplasty?
A typical Asian nose is small in both height and width. The nasal tip is poorly defined, which usually requires an Asian nose tip refinement. An Asian rhinoplasty focuses on adjusting the nose so that it is more well-balanced to the rest of the face. Dr. Mang can explain this narrow nose rhinoplasty procedure during a consultation at his Atlanta, GA, office.
Ultimately, most Asian rhinoplasty surgeries revolve around how the nasal tip projects or augmentation of the dorsum, the area near the upper cheeks and eye area. Asian noses usually have round nostrils, which means that when we sharpen the tip, the nostrils will become narrower. However, each patient may want a different look, so he can customize your nose reshaping surgery based on your goals for surgery.
Am I a candidate for rhinoplasty in Atlanta, GA?
We offer both women and men rhinoplasty surgery at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery. When you don’t like how your nose looks, rhinoplasty can help. Dr. Mang can discuss changes to your nose to make sure you’re comfortable with the approach during a consultation.

Is in good health
Has a nose size they want to change
May have a drooping nose tip
Has breathing issues that they want to be corrected during surgery
How rhinoplasty is performed
This surgery is performed using general anesthesia. Dr. Mang can use different surgical techniques, depending on the goals of the patient. He may choose either an open or closed technique. The goal of nose surgery is to remove excess tissue and/or cartilage and to enhance or add cartilage to alter how the nose is shaped. After repositioning your nasal features, the skin is put back in place, and sutures are placed inside the nose or along its natural crease.
Recovery from rhinoplasty
After your Asian rhinoplasty surgery, we will monitor you in the recovery room before you are sent home. Your nose and the area around it will look and remain swollen and bruised for the first few days. Many patients may also experience discoloration under their eyes. Dr. Mang recommends using cold compresses and anti-inflammatory medicine to help with this. A follow-up appointment within 72 hours of your surgery will allow him to assess your healing. It can take anywhere from 2 – 4 weeks to recover fully from your nose reshaping surgery.
