Rhinoplasty is considered to be one of the more intricate cosmetic surgery procedures. The nose is a prominent three-dimensional facial characteristic. It performs an important breathing function, which must be preserved during the procedure.
Dr. Paul McCluskey has been performing Asian rhinoplasty for the past several years. He is highly experienced in creating a nose shape that is harmonious with other facial features while also enhancing the function of the nose. In addition, Dr. McCluskey has the expertise in various Asian cosmetic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Paul McCluskey provides Asian nose surgery to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
Benefits of Asian Rhinoplasty
Patients of Asian origin may consider rhinoplasty for various reasons, ranging from purely cosmetic to treating conditions such as septal deviation or other airway-related conditions.
Many patients are able to achieve a permanent resolution of their breathing obstruction problems along with aesthetic nose reshaping.
Asian rhinoplasty presents further challenges commonly related to developing more projection while refining the nasal tip. The Asian nose structure is more delicate, which necessitates a gentle and less vigorous nasal sculpting approach.
Dr. McCluskey often consults Asian patients who are considering rhinoplasty to address certain unwanted features but who do not want an “off-the-rack” nose that takes away from their ethnic identity.
Common requests from patients seeking Asian rhinoplasty include a thinner nose bridge, building-up the nasal dorsum, enhancing the projection of the nose, defining the nasal tip to make it more aesthetically appealing, or modifying the shape of the nostrils.
Expertise of Dr. McCluskey in Asian Rhinoplasty
Asian rhinoplasty is one of the more complex ethnic procedures that a facial plastic surgeon may perform. In terms of complexity, the procedure is second only to improvement of nasal dorsum deficit and weak cartilaginous framework along with thick skin and soft-tissue envelope.
Dr. McCluskey is an expert in facial and neck plastic surgery procedures and offers advanced Asian rhinoplasty in the Atlanta area.
He will work with the patient to achieve an appearance that makes them feel confident and comfortable while naturally complementing their facial structure.
Patients commonly choose to receive chin implants along with their Asian nose reshaping cosmetic surgery. This enhances their overall appearance and profile. In addition, many Asian rhinoplasty patients also subsequently choose to undergo Asian eyelid surgery as well.
Defined Nasal Tip
A common request in the area of Asian rhinoplasty is the desire to attain a less protuberant or bulbous nasal tip. Previously, achieving a redefined nasal tip involved aggressive over-resection of the lower lateral cartilages.
This often leads to loss of projection, a downturned, bulbous nose tip with potential long-term contour abnormalities, loss of support, and nasal blockage.
Less is More
Dr. McCluskey does not undertake aggressive cartilage removal as it can lead to damage necessitating a revision rhinoplasty surgery in the future. He believes in a “less-is-more” approach and surgical techniques that lower the chances of revision nose surgery while still accomplishing the patient’s aesthetic goals.
