Dr. Jacono in a double board certified facial plastic surgeon who is considered an expert in the field of rhinoplasty procedures. His extensive knowledge of the nose and their various shapes and sizes based on ethnicity, make Dr. Jacono one of the best New York rhinoplasty specialist that patients from around the world come to see to help correct their nasal issues.
This specialization and knowledge can be seen in his work with Asian patients. Like other ethnicities, Dr. Jacono understands the Asian nose and has a specialized approach to each rhinoplasty procedure that he performs on this ethnicity. It starts with careful preparation and surgical planning for specific issues of the Asian nose which often include a lower nasal bridge, a broad flat nasal tip, and a wider frontal view, including the nostrils and bridge.
Asian Rhinoplasty Before and After Patient 1: This female patient suffered from a weak nasal bridge and an under projected tip. The after photo shows a higher dorsal profile and a more projected and redefined nasal tip.
The Ideal Asian Nose
For both Asian men and Asian women, the dimensions of the help to create one's overall appearance and facial harmony. Some of these standards can be seen in the inter-ala distance which is the distance between the outer edge of the nostril to the other and the equal distance between the inner corners of the eye.
Once you look beyond these general norms, men and women have a separate standard for what defines an aesthetically pleasing nose. For women, a softer and slightly upward nasal tip is considered feminine. For men, a straighter nasal tip projects a more masculine appearance.
Dr. Jacono understands these standards and considers them with each patient's rhinoplasty surgery performed. He also understands that his Asian patients come to him for an Asian nose job to help keep their ethnicity intact. It is extremely important to him that each patient he performs this type of surgery on has their ideal nose based on their other facial features, and he most commonly uses digital morphing to help arrive at the goal for surgery with the patient.
Asian Rhinoplasty Before and After Patient 2: This female patient was concerened with her under projected nasal tip and her wide nostrils. The after photo shows her redefined nasal tip and her nostrils are now more narrow.
Asian Rhinoplasty Before and After Patient 3: This patient was concerned with her nasal tip width. She did not want to modify her nasal bridge or nostrils to maintain more of her ethnic characteristic. She underwent rhinoplasty to narrow her nasal tip.
Asian Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Before and After Patient 4: This female patient underwent a non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure to her redefine her nasal bridge and tip.
Nasal Reshaping of the Asian Nose
The Nasal Tip
One issue that a lot of Dr. Jacono's Asian patients come to see him about is for tip refinement. For Asian patients, their nasal tip is much broader and rounded. The nasal tip cartilages of an Asian patient are weaker and the nasal tip skin is thick. As a result Dr Jacono often needs to use cartilage grafting to refine the tip area and support it using cartilage from inside the nose (the nasal septal cartilage.)
Nasal Base Width
Another common issue Dr Jacono faces with Asian rhinoplasties involves the excessive width of the nasal base, from one nostril to the other. Dr. Jacono pays careful attention to the actual width from side to side and determines if the nasal base width needs to be narrowed or not.He also takes into consideration the potential for wider than usual nostrils, which need to also be included in the overall cosmetic reshaping procedure.
With these issues at hand, Dr. Jacono will address these concerns by narrowing the base.He accomplishes this by small incisions made around the sides of the nostrils which is sometimes referred to as an alar base excision. This allows Dr. Jacono to narrow the base while still keeping a natural looking Asian nose.
The Nasal Bridge
Another issue that Dr. Jacono sees a lot of Asian patients for is to address the lower in height nasal bridge. This can largely be seen when viewing a patient's side profile and also helps explain the wider nasal appearance from the frontal view. Many of his patients request to have the bridge elevated or augmented for better bridge height.
Many Asian rhinoplasty patients want to have their bridge elevated to help address the issue of eyeglasses not sitting properly on their nose. Because their nasal bridge lacks the height and support that standard eyeglasses require to sit properly on their nose.
When performing this type of nasal bridge augmentation, Dr. Jacono takes careful measures to ensure that he does not elevate the bridge too much and causes the patients nose to no longer look Asian. He uses your own body cartilage to elevate the bridge. If a patient requests Dr Jacono can also uses Medpor, Gortex, or other implants but he prefers using the natural cartilage. For those who do not want surgery, Dr Jacono performs an injectable rhinoplasty with fillers using hyaluronic acid filler like Restylane. Because of his extensive training as a New York rhinoplasty specialist, his patients retain their ethnicity and their overall facial harmony is achieved.
