Denver man wants an ethnically appropriate nose.*

Procedure Details

This 18 yo Denver man wanted a nose that was better matched to the rest of his face. He felt like people could only see his nasal tip and that the rest of his nose disappeared on his face. He is ethnically Thai, so he sought out Asian Rhinoplasty specialist Dr. Manish Shah to perform an open rhinoplasty procedure. Dr. Shah performed DCF graft (diced cartilage fascia) augmentation of his nasal bridge, along with tip surgery and conservative narrowing of his alar base. Dr. Shah harvested the temporalis fascia from the patient's right scalp, and used fresh frozen cadaver rib cartilage for the augmentation. Dr. Shah used a proprietary method for creating the diced cartilage not used elsewhere in the world to create high quality diced cartilage. The patient did not want an unnatural appearing nose. He loves the nose that he received. His self-confidence has improved tremendously. In these pictures, he is one year post-surgery.

Asian Rhinoplasty Denver

Using a proprietary technique for creating diced cartilage, not currently described in the literature, Dr. Shah created a DCF (diced cartilage fascia) nasal bridge augmentation graft to create a better transition from the tip of the nose to the eyes in this 18 yo Thai male. Dr. Shah was able to elongate the nose and create a more stable tip to increase the projection and length of this patient's nose. A conservative alar base narrowing procedure balanced the width of the nose as well against his other facial features. This combination of procedures is known as Asian Rhinoplasty. Dr. Shah has significant experience with Asian Rhinoplasty here in Denver. 

Many Asian patients in the US want a more subtle rhinoplasty procedure performed than that found in Asian plastic surgery groups in Japan, China, Thailand, South Korea, etc. Using techniques that he has developed, Dr. Shah has been able to develop a successful Ethnic Rhinoplasty practice and has the busiest Ethnic Rhinoplasty practice in Denver and the surrounding regions.
