Asian women have been seeking out the for double-eyelid surgery to “Westernize” their facial features for a long time now. But a new plastic surgery trend among Asians is on the rise, and it comes as somewhat of a shock to plastic surgeons. Rather than making their noses less prominent, like most Caucasian patients do, more and more Asians are actually opting to make their noses stand out more.
But they’re not trying to make their noses more Western, they’re just trying to make their noses more noticeable. “Typical Asian rhinoplasty is not to give them a Caucasian nose at all, in fact they don’t want that now,” says Vancouver facial plastic surgeon Andrew Denton, MD. “The idea is to give the nose a bit more height, which does several things: it anchors the mid-face, it draws the eyes closer together, it creates a shadow line down the side of the nose and actually makes the face look much more mature.”
The surgery also typically consists of implanting a small amount of cartilage harvested from another part of their body into their nose. It all fits into the latest trend that we recently reported that more ethnic women are less interested in the classic cookie-cutter nose job, and go for ones that keep their identity, but fine tune their features.
