Asian Rhinoplasty: Why Experience Matters


Rhinoplasty is quite popular among plastic surgery procedures. It’s also one of the most technically demanding surgeries. The nose is a complex structure, and it can differ a lot between patients, especially when ethnicity is a factor. Here in San Francisco, I offer both rhinoplasty and septoplasty, and I have a lot of experience working with Asian Americans. Choosing a surgeon with experience in Asian rhinoplasty procedure is a crucial to obtaining superior results.

In addition to being certified by 3 distinct medical boards, I completed a 5-year residency in otolaryngology – head and neck surgery. This additional experience offered me a wealth of hands-on learning that has served me well with facial plastic surgery — experience I would not have gained if I had followed a more “traditional” track. My unique background has given me a more comprehensive perspective for facial procedures.

In my practice, I’ve performed rhinoplasty on a diverse array of patients. I particularly enjoy working with rhinoplasty patients of Asian descent, and I’d certainly consider it one of my specialties. When creating my surgical plan, I strive to meet the patient’s desires, of course. But beyond that, I also work hard to make sure the nose complements the patient’s existing facial features, for a result that’s proportional and unique in its beauty.

In addition to cosmetic rhinoplasty, I offer functional procedures, such as septoplasty, in my San Francisco practice. Septoplasty alone won’t alter the appearance of the nose; instead, it can improve respiratory function and solve issues related to the anatomical structure of the nose, such as snoring. A deviated septum, nasal polyps, and enlarged turbinates are common conditions that can be treated with functional rhinoplasty. These conditions require an advanced surgeon to create maximum results with minimal scarring.
