I’m Filipino – Can I achieve a nose with Asian Rhinoplasty?

Q: I’m Filipino. My nose is flat and wide, and is bulbous. Can I do Asian rhinoplasty using only ear cartilage and septal cartilage? I want the bridge taller and a bit thinner, and I want the tip more refined. Are my expectations realistic enough?

A: Using grafts fashioned from cartilage from both your ears and septum, and fascia harvested from your scalp, it is possible to achieve a result similar to the photos you have provided.  The diced cartilage wrapped in fascia (DCF) can be used to augment the bridge of your nose to make it taller and thinner, while a combination of grafts can be used to project and refine the tip of your nose.
