Is it a good idea to get an Asian Osteotomy?

Q: Is it even a good idea for one? What exactly does it do and what look will it give? I feel that my nose root in very deep/sunken into my face and want to push this area out. Will a osteotomy help with projecting my whole nose outwards?

A: The majority of patients undergoing augmentation Asian rhinoplasty will not benefit from osteotomies.  Especially patients with a deep radix (root of the nose), building this area and making it taller will improve the appearance of the bridge and correct the dorsal aesthetic lines without the need for osteotomies.  Autologous grafts (such as diced cartilage fascia – DCF) fashioned from ear or rib cartilage, will project and refine the nose.
