There are several common reasons that patients undergo rhinoplasty. Common reasons tend to be the creation of a nasal bridge, rotation of the nasal tip downward to hide the appearance of the nostrils, and definition of the nasal tip.
The placement of either a temporalis fascia graft with diced cartilage or a silicone graft along the nasal dorsum can build up the nasal bridge. Rotation of the nasal tip downward tends to involve the use of a rib graft to have enough structure and support to hold the downward rotation of the nasal tip into position.
It is very common for Asian patients to often undergo eyelid surgery at the time of rhinoplasty procedures. This can be either the creation of a “double eyelid” or eyelid crease on both eyelids or to have the surgery on one eyelid to match the other.
