Abstract The South East Asian nose is usually small with voluminous thick skin, low dorsum, wide and hanging ala, bulbous tip, and retracted premaxilla. The surgical approach of rhinoplasty for these types of noses includes the following: dorsal augmentation, counterrotation and projection of the tip, and correction of hanging ala and alar flare/base. A usual ideal rhinoplasty outcome of a South East Asian nose should be a nose that fits the face with good function and has all the aesthetic landmarks achieved: natural looking dorsum, supratip break, tip, subtip break, columellar show, good alar-columellar relation...

Abstract Nasal hump surgery is frequently regarded as a reduction surgery in most Western rhinoplasty textbooks and referred to as reduction rhinoplasty. Most Asian hump noses have a small hump frequently associated with a low nasal dorsum and underprojection of the nasal tip. Correcting a hump nose in Asians has distinct differences in concept and technique. A small hump and additional need for augmentation of the dorsum and the tip often minimizes the amount of hump removal or obviates resection itself. Characteristics of the Asian hump nose with emphasis on surgical techniques commonly used to obtain reliable r...

Abstract Tip surgery during rhinoplasty is particularly difficult in Asians. Tip grafting is the best approach. Conchal cartilage with perichondrium and costal cartilage are powerful grafting materials. The most important grafting techniques are tip-onlay grafting, shield grafting, and multilayer tip grafting. Tip-onlay grafts are useful for dorsal convexity. Shield grafts require sufficient support to prevent bending. Multilayer tip grafts (usually 2 layers) are versatile. Asians vary in cartilage configuration, skin thickness, and aesthetic desires: tip-grafting strategies must be tailored to meet the aesthetic ...

Abstract A septal extension graft (SEG) can control nasal tip projection, shape, and rotation. SEG and dorsal alloplastic implants have predominated in Asian rhinoplasty, leading to iatrogenic complications such as a foreshortened nose and destruction of remaining septum. The lower nasal two-thirds can be enhanced anteriorly and caudally using the septal L-strut extension graft in Asians with relatively small noses. The septal L-strut extension graft is indicated in primary cases in which the bony dorsum is acceptable but the cartilaginous dorsum is relatively hypoplastic, and in secondary cases with an iatrogenic...

Abstract Rhinoplasty is a commonly performed cosmetic surgery in Asia. Rhinoplasty using filler is preferred because has fewer side effects and shorter down time. The part of external nose between the skin and bone or cartilages consists of 4 layers. To prevent vascular compromise, the injection should be into deep fatty layer, preventing embolization. Filler is usually injected in the order of radix, rhinion, tip, and the supratip area. To minimize asymmetry, the surgeon should always mark the midline on the nasal bridge and perform the procedure without deviating from it. PMID: 30005788 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Homologous graft materials for dorsal augmentation are safe and biocompatible with a low risk of complications. Acellular dermal matrix (ADM) provides natural appearance of the nose and long-term structural integrity without extrusion, showing favorable augmentation results. Tutoplast-processed fascia lata (TPFL) is soft and easy to manipulate, providing a smooth postoperative contour of the nasal dorsum with low risk of infection or extrusion. ADM and TPFL carry low risk of major complications, such as infection, foreign body reaction, and graft extrusion. ADM and TPFL are suitable graft materials that d...

Abstract Augmentation rhinoplasty is one of the most common aesthetic procedures in Asian countries with silicone implant being the most widely used material for augmentation rhinoplasty. Despite potential advantages, use of alloplastic materials in rhinoplasty is often discouraged in Western countries because of concern for possible risk of infection and extrusion of the implant. The collective experience of long-term favorable outcomes in Asia makes the silicone augmentation rhinoplasty a common procedure. Complication rates for silicone implants vary significantly, depending on surgeon experience, surgical tech...

Abstract The hybrid approach delivers unlimited exposure and technical access, enabling all the procedures of the open approach. In addition, the hybrid approach is flexible in its extent of "dissection/ exposure" It can be more of a classic endonasal or limited access approach in some cases or open structural rhinoplasty and reconstruction in others. The benefits of the nonopen approach deserve equal attention among Asian rhinoplasty surgeons and residents-in-training courses. The difference is not merely that it spares an incision, it is an opportunity to fine-tune minor millimeters of changes in every...
