Question: I’m an Asian male with a very flat nose. What would be an ideal nose for me? Would it be different from a Caucasian man’s nose?
Answer: The features of a typical Asian nose include a broader, flatter nasal bridge, compared to a typical Caucasian nose. There also tends to be less definition to the nasal tip, although there is a great deal of variability across all ethnic groups. The “ideal” nose for a given patient depends on that patient’s specific goals, and generalizations should not be made. If a patient desires to have a more narrow, projected nasal bridge, as seen in many Caucasian noses, that change is achievable but should not be considered “ideal”.
