Thick Asian Nose. Is surgery a good option? Should I exclusively look at doctors who have worked on Asian clients?

Q: I am half Filipino and half Hispanic. My nose is from my Filipino side. And I’ve been reading online how Asian noses compared to Caucasian noses are fundamentally different, and how some doctors specialize in just the Asian rhinoplasty. Knowing this, I have become apprehensive going to a doctor who hasn’t done a lot of ethnic or Asian noses. So when looking for my doctor, should I exclusively look at doctors who have worked on Asian clients or does it matter?

A: Asian noses have not only anatomical differences from noses of other ethnicities, but different aesthetics.  This makes it important to find a surgeon who appreciates Asian beauty and is able to create a nose, which enhances and complements your other features.

As a patient, looking at a surgeon’s before and after photos will give you a good sense of whether he/she has the expertise and the aesthetic sense to help you achieve the nose you have in mind for yourself.
