I’m Asian American and would like to undergo rhinoplasty. Are there any specific risks associated with Asians?
The only specific risk to Asians is for hyperpigmentation of the skin and a slightly higher risk of a thickened scar, but these are both small. The greater difference for Asian rhinoplasty is that it is almost always an augmentation procedure and not a reduction procedure and often times either ear or rib cartilage is utilized depending on the degree of augmentation desired.
