What do you recommend for a typical wide, flat, Asian nose?

Q: I’m an Asian female and I hate my nose! I want a narrower, more prominent (but still natural looking) nose. P.S. If someone who has had a full rhinoplasty (alarplasty & cartilage grafting, etc) were to injure their nose, would they need to have special reconstructive surgery or would an ordinary nose splint suffice?

A: The safest way to achieve a natural-appearing and permanent result is with Asian rhinoplasty using autologous grafts (tissue from your own body).  It’s important to maintain the proper proportions between the tip and bridge to create the most attractive results.

Once healed from rhinoplasty using your own cartilage, your nose will be stronger than it was before surgery but will still be susceptible to the same injuries when given significant trauma.
