What type of nose implant is best for Asian nose?

Q: I would like to know what types of implant that can last a lifetime as I do not wish to go for a rhinoplasty revision later on. What type of implant would give me the best harmony on my face and enhance my feature without looking fake?

A: There are many options when choosing Asian rhinoplasty, but the safest, most permanent and predictable way to achieve excellent results is with tissue from your own body (autologous grafts). They have a much lower risk of infection, extrusion, or migration than synthetic implants because they become fully incorporated into your nose unlike synthetic implants, which remain as a foreign body in your nose. Diced cartilage wrapped in Fascia will provides customizable, precise augmentation to give you a natural, attractive contour. The choice of cartilage grafts will depend on the degree of augmentation and refinement you desire.

Computer morphing of your nose during an in-person consultation with a rhinoplasty specialist would more definitively determine the best grafts for your nose.
