What should you expect during a consultation for Asian rhinoplasty nose surgery?

by Dr. Daniel Lin


What to expect during a consultation for Asian rhinoplasty | PasadenaThe Asian nose appears quite distinct from the Caucasian nose. Therefore, special surgical techniques are necessary to enhance its appearance without producing unnatural outcomes that are not harmonious with the other facial features of the Asian face.

The primary purpose of Asian rhinoplasty is cosmetic enhancement. But it can also sometimes be undertaken for functional corrections.

Asian rhinoplasty cosmetic surgery involves intricacies to ensure that facial harmony and balance are maintained while the nose is reshaped.



The surgeon will have an in-depth discussion with the patient before the Asian rhinoplasty surgery to be able to prepare an individualized surgical plan. The patient should openly ask questions and clarify their concerns regarding the procedure during the consultation process.


Building Rapport

The primary goal of the surgeon will be to use the consultation process as an opportunity to inform the patient on various aspects of Asian rhinoplasty to help them make an enlightened decision.

The surgeon will offer guidelines on the pre-operative and post-operative phases as well as discuss estimated costs, financing, and other practical facets of the procedure.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Lin provides Asian nose surgery to patients in West Covina, Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley, Chino, Rowland Heights, Baldwin Park, Whittier, Brea, Arcadia, Pasadena, Diamond Bar and surrounding areas in California.


Patient’s Feedback

During the consultation process, the surgeon will want to understand the patient’s reasons for seeking Asian nose surgery and the aspects of their nose shape that they find unappealing.

The nose surgeon will also assess the patient’s health records and seek information about their current medical state. They will take this feedback into account while developing a customized Asian rhinoplasty cosmetic surgery to meet the specific requirements of the patient.


Aesthetic Goals of the Patient

At the time of the initial consultation, the surgeon will understand the patient’s inherent aesthetic needs and goals pertaining to their face and nose.

Developing a clear comprehension of the patient’s needs will enable the surgeon to focus on the targeted sites and develop more satisfactory results in a less invasive manner. The surgeon will make a decision on an open or closed rhinoplasty technique depending on the needs of the patient.



Medical Assessment

It is advisable for the patient to arrange for their health records to be sent directly to the surgeon’s office from the doctor and the hospital prior to the scheduled consultation.

The surgeon will assess these records carefully as well as physically examine the condition of the patient’s skin, nose, bone, and cartilage at the time of the consultation.

In addition, they may also order x-rays and other tests if necessary. The patient should openly reveal any pre-existing health conditions or concerns to the surgeon.


Current Drugs

Ideally, the patient should create a list of all prescription, non-prescription, and recreational (if any) drugs that they may be currently taking in advance of their consultation with the nose surgeon.

This list should also include any herbal supplements or vitamins that the patient may be taking. The patient can take this list to the surgeon’s office for the Asian rhinoplasty consultation.


Questions to Ask

During the consultation, the patient will have an opportunity to ask questions about the Asian nose surgery procedure and the surgeon’s background. A responsible surgeon will offer thorough and accurate answers to ensure that the patient has complete clarity on the procedure.
