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.

Practice Policy Update from Cheng Plastic Surgery Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Monday, January 4, 2021:

We are open!

We cannot wait to see all of our amazing patients in our office! We are currently working with a more limited schedule than before, so please be patient as we navigate through this, together.

There are a few key changes we’ve made to our appointment protocol to ensure we are maintaining social distancing and following strict COVID-19 health and safety protocols - for you AND for us.

  1. Call our office from your car once you’ve arrived for your appointment. A staff member will come out to greet you, take your temperature and conduct a short COVID-19 health screening to make sure you are in good health prior to entering the building. Our doors will remain locked during normal business hours to ensure only those who have been screened can enter.
  2. Please arrive at your appointment wearing a mask or protective face covering. We will not be able to bring you inside the office without one.
  3. We will not have more than one patient in the lobby at a time.
  4. You will be greeted by Dr. Elbert or Dr. Jacqueline wearing their Personal Protective Equipment deemed necessary by your specific treatment. (N95 mask, gloves, face shield or protective eyewear, etc.) We ask that you leave your mask on during the procedure, and only take it off if necessary to complete the treatment.
  5. All necessary transactions will be done in the room your treatment is being performed. This will avoid unnecessary back ups in the lobby.
  6. You will then be walked out through the back door of the office. This is the best way to keep all staff and patients socially distanced while maintaining one steady flow of traffic throughout the building.

And of course, all rooms will be heavily disinfected immediately after you leave just as we have always done prior to the pandemic. Each room is equipped with an air filter as an added safety measure. We will place a major focus on high-contact areas such as chairs, doorknobs, counter tops, mirrors and more.

We are still continuing to conduct Virtual Consultations if you prefer a quicker and no-contact experience.

Virtual Consultation

For the safety of our patients and staff, we ask that you reschedule your appointment and do not enter our office with any of the following conditions:

  1. You have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  2. You have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  3. You traveled more than 150 miles or have been in close contact with someone who has traveled in the last 10 days.
  4. You are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
    • fever or chills
    • cough
    • shortness of breath
    • fatigue
    • muscle or body aches
    • headaches
    • sore throat
    • loss of taste or smell
    • nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting

Concerned about getting the Moderna vaccine after having recently received filler treatment? In some studies, it has been observed that a small percentage of the vaccinated groups experienced localized inflammation (swelling) after receiving the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. In said cases, all studied reactions were temporary immune responses. It has been suggested that patients refrain from getting filler two weeks before and after the vaccine. If you have any questions, please feel free to call our office!

Thank you for your continued support and we can't wait to see you again!

Kindest Regards,,

Dr. Elbert, Dr. Jacqueline and staff at Cheng Plastic Surgery
