Rhinoplasty for Asian noses is markedly different from that for white noses. As rhinoplasty becomes increasingly popular among Asian people, it is important that the rhinoplasty surgeons master relevant anatomy and become skilled in required techniques to serve this segment of population. In this article, distinct characteristics of Asian noses are briefly described. Noses in the Asia population exhibit broad phenotypic variations. There is no typical Asian nose. Therefore, the terms of Asian noses in this article are confined to noses of people from East Asian (eg, Korea, Japan, and China).
