The Korean nose job is a typical nose surgery that aims to transform the Asian button nose to a nose that is considered beautiful in all dimensions around the world. A typical Asian button nose is a nose with wide nostrils and flat shape. The Korean nose job is not similar to the western nose jobs, which are mainly about reducing the size of the nose.

The Korean nose job is more like the Asian Rhinoplasty, which aims for augmentation or refinement. This nose job is about creating beautiful noses by reducing the size of the nostrils, raising and narrowing the tip, and then adding appropriate bridging. The technologies are used as per the demands of the patients.

A western patient wants a different shape than an Asian one, which is why the technology for the nose job also differs. However, Korea as a medical tourism destination has learnt the skill of nose jobbing like none other destination in the world.
