Hybrid™ Rhinoplasty is specially designed to help Asian noses achieve ultimate refinement and proportion. Asian noses tend to have a depressed nose bridge and a short columella. As a result, the nose tips appear flatter. Some Asian noses are short, often causing the nose to upturn and nostrils to be more obvious. Atop all these, Asian noses also present with wide alar or “wings”, making them look broad.
The internal cartilages of the Asian nose are smaller and softer compared to the Caucasian nose. With weaker support, the Asian nose has less internal support, making it flatter.
In Hybrid™ Rhinoplasty, patient’s ear cartilage is used to create a more beautiful and natural-looking nose tip. The nose bridge is also gently enhanced with the use of a customized implant to elevate and define the nasal structure. Finally, to perfect the 3-dimensional picture, the base of the nose can be reduced with alar revision, so that the nose is optimized to the ideal width and height to suit the face.
Hybrid™ Rhinoplasty enables one to achieve the following:
- Naturally Refined Nose tip
- Narrower nose base
- Defined nasal bridge
- Gentle Feminine nasal profile curve for females or
- Masculine straight profile definition for males
