Overview of Persian Rhinoplasty

Iran is known as the rhinoplasty capital of the world, with seven times more procedures performed annually than America. Iranian women wear a hijab when in public, covering most of their body. Because of this, they seek to refine their facial appearance, as this is the only part of their body that is seen. Their Western counterparts are not much different, and seek rhinoplasty with the same level of vigor.

As a surgeon who is particularly experienced in Persian rhinoplasty, Dr. Brownrigg understands all nuances of this incredibly delicate surgery. His goal is to refine and complement his patients’ naturally ethnic appearance while sculpting a nose that is beautiful and desired by the patient.

As a general overview, many Persians have noses that are slightly bulbous with a downturned tip. Additionally, most of Dr. Brownrigg Persian patients feel the overall size of their nose is too large. When coming to see Dr. Brownrigg for a consultation, most patients desire a smaller nose with a slightly upturned tip. By using the Vectra 3D Imaging System your desired post op result is easily imagined.

 In the quest for an improved appearance, there are several aspects of the nose that Asian patients would like to address. These are:

  • Thick skin
  • Bulbous, overlarge tip
  • Wide nasal base
  • Bridge that sits low on the face while each factor above is thoroughly considered, two aspects unique to Asian rhinoplasty are the bridge and the nasal base. These are covered below:

Dr. Brownrigg prefers using the patient’s own cartilage, as it eliminates the possibility of infection or rejection. In many cases, the ideal cartilage is what’s known as costal cartilage, found on the front of the ribs. By using costal cartilage, Dr. Brownrigg can sculpt a single, continuous graft to augment the nose. By using a single piece of cartilage, Dr. Brownrigg minimizes the possibility of the graft being reabsorbed by the body, which would prevent the successful outcome of Asian rhinoplasty.
