What Makes a Beautiful Nose?
A beautiful nose is a nose that maintains balance with the whole facial features. Harmony Rhinoplasty is to achieve the natural-looking nose that is proportionally balanced to the face.
Will a simple augmentation make your nose beautiful?
Most Asian patients assume that a simple nose augmentation would make them look beautiful. Would this be the case for everyone? Not quite so.
The nose is the central and key feature of the face. If the nose is projected without considering the facial balance, the result will be awkward.
So… What is Harmony Rhinoplasty?
Asians have common features of protruded mouth from the profile view due to depressed mid-face and nose. Therefore, a general rhinoplasty involving a simple nose augmentation makes it difficult to improve mouth protrusion and achieve full, natural beauty. If you wish to have a beautiful nose, you must consider the other facial features; the forehead, lips, chin, and angles connected to the nose.
The Effects of Harmony Rhinoplasty
The nasal bridge and tip will be constructed with harvested rib cartilage, and the depressed mid-face will be improved by placing sculpted rib cartilage inside the empty space of columella. The typical disproportional Asian feature is improved without a major surgery such as gum reduction or orthognathic (two-jaw/corrective jaw) surgery.
Many Asian patients are diagnosed with short, small chin that causes the mouth to look protruded. To correct the mouth protrusion, some patients go through complex and risky surgical procedures which require extraction of four teeth, incision of gum and facial bone. Harmony Rhinoplasty does not require the complicated orthognathic surgery as rhinoplasty can be combined with genioplasty (chin surgery).
Except for the severe overbite and under-bite cases, Harmony Rhinoplasty can enhance the mid-face depression by constructing overall nose structure.
Difference between orthognathic surgery and Harmony Rhinoplasty
If the mouth is protruded and mid-face is depressed, most people undergo complicated orthognathic surgery (two-jaw/ corrective surgery) compounded with extraction of four teeth and gum reduction surgery.
