The Vancouver Sun recently consulted a number of independent Canadian cosmetic surgery centers in regards to the increased interest in Asian augmentation rhinoplasty. While most people undergo rhinoplasty to decrease the size of the nose, young Asian women are actually making their noses more prominent, according to the Vancouver Sun.

According to the paper, the number of procedures for Asian clients has tripled in recent years. As a result, several Canadian physicians who specialize in Asian rhinoplasty have seen a 50% increase in clientele over the past two years.

“This type of rhinoplasty is a newer trend, and not designed to create the standard Caucasian nose many desire. Instead, the focus is on creating a higher nasal bridge that is visible in profile,” says Beverly Hills facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Babak Azizzadeh.

The procedure fills a void on the mid-face in a straight-on-view, giving the nose a bit more height. This anchors the mid-face, draws the eyes closer together, and creates a shadow line down the side of the nose, which makes the face look more mature.

“I have seen some great results, but as with any plastic surgery procedures, you will get the best results with an experienced, board-certified, and regarded surgeon,” says Dr. Azizzadeh.

Dr. Azizzadeh is a renowned Harvard-trained rhinoplasty expert, recognized as a Top Facial Plastic Surgeon by the US News & World Report. He is one of the leading experts in the fields of primary, revision and ethnic rhinoplasty, and is the author of five bestselling books, including the definitive rhinoplasty textbook entitled “Master Techniques in Rhinoplasty,” Dr. Azizzadeh is double-board certified in both facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology, which gives him a distinctive insight into both the aesthetics and function of the nose.

He has been recognized for his work on several occasions, and has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show and countless other media outlets. Dr. Azizzadeh is also the director of the USC Facial Plastic Fellowship Program as well as the Cedars-Sinai Multispecialty Plastic Surgery Symposium.
