As Dr. Kwak works to refine and reshape the nose, he may use several advanced methods to accomplish the most attractive result. These may include employing cartilage grafts to boost the nasal structure; bridge augmentation; tip lengthening or reduction; and adjustments to the nostrils at the nasal base. In every case, his end goal is aesthetic balance, symmetry, and overall facial accord that simultaneously preserves and enhances nasal function.
Dr. Kwak is an expert in the realm of Middle Eastern rhinoplasty, producing life-changing results that complement each patient’s unique ancestry, whether Arab, Armenian, or Persian. In general, a prominent nasal hump may be refined, a drooping tip lifted and reshaped, and the nose gracefully proportioned and integrated with the rest of the face. Dr. Kwak is careful to never over-operate, which allows him to preserve the beauty of each culture while producing stunning NYC ethnic rhinoplasty results.
Dr. Kwak has honed his ability to minimize nasal imperfections such as an unduly broad, flat or wide nose, unrefined nostrils or an under-defined bridge. Cartilage from the ribs or ears may be used to fortify the nasal tip or bridge shape, lending more strength to the profile. In many cases, these cosmetic changes also serve to enhance breathing and nasal functioning as a whole. Due to his own Asian heritage, he has spent ample time studying and performing facial surgeries on a significant amount of Asian clients. This has led his expertise to produce some of the best results from an Asian rhinoplasty NYC patients can rely on.
African American clients often request to have a wide nasal bridge reduced, or overly pronounced nostrils reshaped and redefined. In cases where an overly round tip requires more cartilage, Dr. Kwak will perform a graft using tissue from another part of the body to fortify and support the nasal structure. Over the years, Dr. Kwak has perfected his technique in African American rhinoplasty, providing enhanced results that appear beautifully natural. Where other doctors may tend towards creating a more generic European aesthetic for these clients, Dr. Kwak resists this predictable trend, rather working to reflect and honor the patient’s ethnic heritage while minimizing flaws.
Clients of Latin or Hispanic heritage regularly seek out Dr. Kwak’s expertise in blending and balancing the features to create a facial aesthetic that is beautiful, organic-looking and functionally secure. The bridge may be too pronounced, or alternatively, too flat. The tip may be too bulbous or thick, drawing focus away from a lovely smile. Regardless of the type of imperfection to be adjusted, Dr. Kwak will work meticulously to address each client’s wishes and create an outcome that is right for that person.
