How common is it in Asian patients to combine rhinoplasty with chin augmentation?
It is no more common for an Asian patient to request rhinoplasty and chin augmentation be performed concurrently than you would see in a Caucasian population. There are certainly differences in the rhinoplasty that would need to be performed on an Asian patient when compared to a Caucasian patient, and the size of the chin implant would likely be smaller in an Asian patient than a Caucasian patient because of the facial balance that would need to be achieved in each of these patient types. In general, I perform chin implant surgery along with rhinoplasty in all patients approximately 3-6% of the time.
