These are before and after pictures of Korean American woman from Los Angeles who underwent rhinoplasty with nasal implant placement. As you can see in her cosmetic surgery pictures, she now has a more prominent nasal bridge and narrower nasal tip, and smaller nostrils.
Asian nose surgery differs from that of other ethnic groups, and therefore requires the plastic surgeon to specialize in Asian rhinoplasty. Therefore, during her consultation, Dr. Younai reviewed with her options for used of different type of nasal implants including silicone, rib, and ear cartilage. Considering that silicone nasal implants are very commonly and safely used, and there is no need to harvest cartilage from other body areas she decided to choose a synthetic nasal implant. Her recovery after rhinoplasty went well and she was able to return to her routine activities in a few days.
