What makes an Asian rhinoplasty different at Cheng Plastic Surgery? Our double-board certified facial plastic surgeons come from an Asian background and because of this, they understand and focus upon preserving the balance and harmony of Asian facial features. The physical anatomy of an Asian nose vs. a Caucasian nose is fundamentally different. Dr. Jacqueline and Dr. Elbert have a profound understanding of these differences and approach each case with that in mind.

Our approach to Asian rhinoplasty: Artistry.

The subtle alteration of the nose structure should not change the nose substantially, but to alter it in a way that pleases you, while maintaining the balance and harmony of your other features. Often, in those of Asian background, the anatomy of the nasal bridge is flatter, and you may wish to make it taller and more refined. To accomplish this change, subtly and beautifully, requires a skilled surgeon with extensive knowledge of Asian facial anatomy, and the use of advanced surgical techniques to heighten the bridge without completely altering your overall aesthetic.

Are you a candidate for Asian rhinoplasty in San Jose?

If you are unhappy with some aspect of your nose structure, we invite you to meet with us. An Asian rhinoplasty, performed with meticulous surgical skills and our thorough understanding of the subtleties and differences in Asian facial structure, creates beautiful results. You must be in good general health to undergo an Asian rhinoplasty. At Cheng Plastic Surgery, we focus on patient health and safety.

What can an Asian Rhinoplasty do for me?

Improved Nasal Tip

A weak tip can be enhanced and fixed, providing more projection and definition

Strong Nasal Bridge

The bridge of Asian noses tend to have a flatter appearance and can be enhanced with harvested cartilage or implants depending upon the patient

Nostril Narrowing

Surgically altering the shape of the nostrils can provide more harmony and balance to the nose

More Prominent Appearance

Lengthening or enlarging the nose can provide more balance with the eyes, lips and cheeks

Your nose is the aesthetic focal point of your face.

Altering the Asian nose structure, when performed by our plastic surgeons, will be a beautiful enhancement to your overall look. Nose shape and bridge height, when altered correctly, leads to a more beautifully sculpted nose shape that creates an attractive, appealing facial balance and harmony.

What to Expect During Asian Rhinoplasty Consultation & Surgery

The first step is to meet with us so we can discuss your vision and evaluate your nose structure. We make it easier to visualize the outcome of an Asian rhinoplasty, with the help of computer imaging.

The date for your surgery will be selected. We will discuss any preparations for surgery you need to follow.

On the day of your surgery, you will arrive early, and anesthesia administered. You will not remember your operation. You will become alert when it is complete with your newly reshaped nose bandaged.

You can return home, under the care of another person, to rest and recover. Most of our patients tell us that the recovery was easier than expected.

What is the recovery from an Asian rhinoplasty?

The recovery from an Asian rhinoplasty is often far more comfortable than expected. Some bruising and swelling are expected, fading as the days pass. Plan on taking ten days to two weeks away from your usual activities to rest and recover. You will need to sleep with your head elevated on extra pillows, and avoid any straining, bending, or lifting. Your newly-reshaped nose must be protected from the sun during healing. Prescription pain medication can ease any pain in the early stages of recovery. Our surgeon will be closely monitoring your recovery.

Even with social distancing, we're still here for you.

As the current situation with COVID-19 is rapidly evolving, we are continuing to make decisions regarding our practice to keep ourselves and our community healthy. As the future of this virus is uncertain, it is mandated by Santa Clara County Public Health Department Officials that all non-essential businesses close their doors and shelter in place.

Because of this region-wide order, our office will be closed as of Tuesday, March 17th, 2020 and will be rescheduling all non-emergent treatments, follow up appointments and surgeries after Tuesday, April 7th, 2020.⁣ All future in-office events for March and April have been postponed until further notice.

To those patients that need to be seen urgently for post-operative or emergent appointments - please call our office phone number. Your call will be forwarded to an employee that can best help you as we will still have remote access to our schedule. They will make the necessary arrangements to ensure you receive the proper care. ⁣

We are confident that we will make it through this and become a stronger and smarter community because of it. Yes, most people do not die from COVID-19 and many can be asymptomatic - but the sooner we isolate from one another, the sooner we can make sure those statistics do not change.⁣

As physicians, we hold health to the utmost importance so we please ask those of you who can - work from home when possible, do not go to restaurants or bars, limit your public exposure and be cognizant of those who are sick, elderly or immunocompromised. In this time, we have to not only think of ourselves, but think of those that can be directly affected and do all we can for the sake of our community, our state, and our country.⁣

We do not believe this is a time to panic - but rather the opposite. It is time to be rational and act with extreme purpose. By preventatively closing our doors for the next 3 weeks - we may be helping change the course of a potentially life-changing event in history.⁣

We look forward to a future of health and happiness with you at Cheng Plastic Surgery!⁣

Virtual Consultation

Caring and cautious regards,⁣

Dr. Elbert & Dr. Jacqueline Cheng
