Anatomic Differences Between the Asian and Caucasian Nose and Their Implications for Liquid Rhinoplasties.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

The demand for surgical and nonsurgical esthetic procedures in the nasal region has increased sharply in the past. Anatomic differences of the nose between different ethnicities need to be investigated thoroughly. The objective of this article is to analyze and compare morphometric features of the nose in a mixed Asian-Caucasian study population. The nasal length in Asians was statistically significantly greater than in Caucasians, also after having adjusted for facial height. The nasal dorsal bridge and the nasal base showed statistically significant differences. By keeping these anatomic differences in mind while treating patients, greater efficacy and safety can be achieved.
